"Why don't you make public a re
port of your business?"
"I don't care if I do."
"Why talk like that, Mr. Hillman?
Why not tell us why you dbni't?"
"Em willing to." -
"Why don't you? Why don't you
quit following Marshall i Field & Co.
and get in the lead?"
"I don't want to lead Marshall

A CURL'S WAGES
To the Editor: In a list of neces
sities by our chief merchant today
necessities for a girl who works
to be bought with the wages she
earns we see "ten cents' for
Why this ten cents, and then again,
why only ten?
Is the ten cents for church insert
ed to cause the public to think this
merchant's "help" are all church go
.ers, and, therefore, above the illu
sion of getting their necessities in
the "easy way?"
Or, is this the same dime that is
exacted at the door of certain
churches upon entry; in other words
the entry fee? v
Does this gentleman merchant,
who permits his subordinates to ask
innocent girls "leading questions" in
order to get a "job"; such questions
as "do you live at home or have
you a gentleman friend?"; does he
pay his ten cents every Sunday, and
as many ten cents as will, make an
amount equal to the same per cent
he suggests that this employe pay?"
If he does" pay this, ten cents to
church, to what church does' he pay
it? Is it the same: church that gives
the Charity Ball where ladies who
don't have to work can wear ermine
collars and diamond heeled booties
and sit in a thousand dollar box,,
for sweet charity's "sake?."
Or is if the. church' that asks all
of a its -faithful, on Good Friday, to
bring one 'cent each for Jesus? :
If these dimes were put into a box
and deposited in" a bank and earned
interest and were invested in a Home
for. Girls not run for profit they
would make not only a self-supporting
institution but a producer of
good, sensible, educated girls and
eventually mothers, and the dimes
would then do some gpod.
But, since Christ was born, have
the girls and boys', men and women,
been paying their ten cents per week
to the church and what has the
church given besides promises?
I dare say I'd rather take the blank
promise of the future with a home
here and .now for my dime than a
'harp and a pair of wings" hereafter.

the streets of Agua Prieta last night,
shouting for Madero. Americans and
other' foreigners fled to Douglas.
