A good many local job seekers
are up a tree. We mean their pic
ture advertising cards. And some
of them have gone to the poles
A conductor on the VanBuren
line, Monday morning, put a for
eigner off because the -transfer he
had was punched wrong. It was
a case of hang out in the rain
while tiding, or walk in the rain,
so what's the difference?
The Cubs walloped the Louis
ville Colonels again yesterday, 6
to 4. Cheney started the game,
but was hit hard. Northrop, who
replaced him, was in fine form.
Manager Chance performed at
the initial sack, banging out a
triple and a single.
Carl Morris, once touted as a
white hope, is back at that dear
old Sapulpa, Okla., pulling the
throttle on a switch engine, and
putting a cow down and out
e'very day or so. Carl is on the
same engine he left two years
Carl seems to have found out
something every one else has
known for a long time.
' Callahan's White Sox beat
Waco in the farewell battle yes
terday, 2 to 1. Big Ed Walsh
twirled 'the full nine innings, al
lowing three hits. PingBodie
played third base. 'Nough said.
Charles Mullen, utility man
with the Sox last two seasons,
will play second base for the Lin
coln, Western League team, to
which he was released Saturday.
Capt. Scott lays his failure to
reach the south pole to ponies
he carried instead of doers.
Many a man lays, his failure to
ponies; the kind that used to
"dog" it at Hawthorne. Isn't
that a lovely thought. ,
Famous April and all the year
around jokes; The St. Lbuis Am
erican league ball team and
William Ranoften Hearst.
Another famous April joke:
The one just pulled.
Twenty-one men arrested for
gambling in rear of a restaurant
at 1105 S. Halsted street. They
were playing with Russian cards,
talking Yiddish, and there was
$120 in American money on the
table. Detectives couldn't find
out what the game was.
It is estimated there were
2,000 "dry" sermons preached in
Illinois- churches yesterday.
Meaning that the ministers ad
vocated , prohibition, and not
what you think.
One of the funny things about
politics in Chicago is the awful
interest the newspapers take in
the people just before an election
and how little they care for the
people after, the votes are cast.
The other papers say there is a
break in the Hearst-Harrison-Lawrence
machine. And then
the Hearst' papers say the other
papers are liars. Hearst also ac
cuses other publisher's, without
naming them, of being interested
in gas, telephone and other pub
lic service corporation stocks.
Sick 'em Tawser!
Maybe the reason Andy Law
rence favors Alschuler is that
Dunne doesn't happen to be the
kind of a man a newspaper boss
can lead around by the nose.
