DAILY COMMENT ON
"Four dollars in old bills and
ninety-five cents in small curren
cy." The Lantern Magazine.
We must have missed one of
the latest reforms in our money
The mayor, according to the
American, is pleased with the re
sult of the primary.
The American is supposed to
know just exactly how the mayor
feels politically, but we hope it is
mistaken this once.
We should hate to be forced
into the belief that Carter H.
is suffering from brain fag.
One of the interesting things
about the primary is the remark
able nominations of the Republi
cans. Anyone who ever heard of any
of the Republican nominees be
fore the last few weeks, kindly
raise their hands.
"It's my idea that censors, like
poets, are born, not made." Jer
ry O'Connor, Chicago's well
known movie censor.
Funny how many different
kinds of people are "born, not
made," isn't it? Now some peo
ple are born with horse sense!
"John Borden, son of late Wm.
Borden, is talking about taking a
dash to the Arctic region." Yes
terday's Day Book.
Sounds like "And I'll just take
a dash of bitters in mine, bar

der's name became Kjellerman

PEOPLE AND THINGS
first was used jn Tuesday's Day
Probably, it was just the nat
ural born degeneracy of this age,
which gives respect neither to age
If we wanted to be elected to
anything and didn't give a dog
gone how it was done, we'd hire
the guys who counted the state's
attorney vote last November.
And, talking about that cote,
we'd like to see Maclay Hoyne be
a real man and demand a full in
vestigation of that fancy count
ing for the sake of his own good
It's a good job there are nine
brothers of the Maderos. It gives
certain American papers a chance
to report one executed every day
for quite a while.
Probably another dispensation
of Providence. Think of how an
noying it would have been for
these certain' papers if Madero
hadn't had any brothers or sis
ters! A delirious rumor to the effect
that William Jennings Bryan, of
Nebraska, might be secretary of
state in Wilson's cabinet, has
reached our ears.
The Ft. Sheridan sojers are
brave boys all right. They start
ed for the war on the Illinois Cen
tral. The Springfield senatorial
rough house may become really
interesting if they split up on wet
and dry 'lines.
The Hon. Mr. Huerta evident
ly thinks the Madero family is
too numerous. Or was.
