DOES THE FIELD ESTATE OWN' CHICAGO?
For years ,the Marshall Field estate has been buying up prop
erty in the loop district, getting evry day a firmer grip on the city.
Now they want what's underneath the streets. They are
anxious to get the space under Washington street, between State
and Wabash, so they can extend their basement.
At the last meeting of council this grab was recommitted to a
In the meantime not a paper that gets advertising from the big,
store has ever peeped against the grab.
Anybody who knows anything knows that it is bad business
for the city to be giving away property under the streets, for the
city may need that space itself, and need it "badly.
Like as not it will turn up later on that the Marshall Field
estate has fixed things up so subways will be built for the special
benefit of the Marshall Field store, so that everybody who wants
to go from one part of town to the other will have to transfer at the
big store. , .
It may be that the space under Washington street is wanted
for a basement opening up in a subway station.
Anyhow, the grab ought to be stopped; and people who want
to stop it will have to get after their aldermen. They won't get any
help from newspapers that are getting big money for advertising
from the Marshall Field store.
Millions upon millions have been made in that store, and yet it
employs-girls at $6 a week, and men and women at not much more.
How much longer must Chicago be managed and the people
taxed to pile up more millions for the Field estate?
CAUSE OF DOUBLE CHIN
A double chin is not to be de
sired, as it spoils the outline of
the face. It can be remedied by
a systematic effort.
Contrary to the common "sup
position, double chin is not al
ways due to relaxed musclesThe
simplest movement to remove the
double chin is a regular exercise,
a forward and backward action of
the head as far as it will go. .This
should be taken at least twenty
five times each way, should be
persisted in each night or morn
ing and should be accompanied
with a ten-minute massage with
the tips of the fingers, drawing
the hands from th.e middle of the
chin out till they touch the ears.
This action stimulates the tissue.
The head movement exercises the
muscles and makes them firmer.
Inactivity of any muscle means
that that part will grow weak and
flabby and lose its proper devel
opment. o o
