A LAD YOU CAN TAKE OFF YOUR HAT TO'
There's no need, of your wasting sympathy. on the poet Longfellow's
grandson, -young Ned; Dana, the Haryar J; graduate who is earning $10.50 a
week near Boston collecting nickels as aconductoiipf a trolley car, for he
wastes none on himself. He says: t -i.1"" 1
"I think that doing nothing' injures one's character. So I looked
around for work. r A young; plan coming from colleee 'cannot always get a
fine job just because of, his college sheepskin. Whehalfellqw is out of work
he should take anything-lie-cah get. I'm not afraid of work, And I find I
like the chaps I work-with. They're' a'bully lot;" ; " ' '"
Dad could well afford vtp 'keep young Ned -m clover;-' Dad has stacks
of money. But there are: two reasons why he won't rdafl bjniself and Ned.
The boy has a lot of notions which the family 'think arjs: scandalous-r-he's
against- rent and interest? and profits, and when he gotvmarried he actually
insisted that his wife should have as much, liberty-jas, himself. That's per
haps in part why dad, isn't tumbling over himself ;with" offers to pay the
boy's bills. ' -
But the chief reason is that the lad has a'will bMlis own. He refuses
to loe a loafer. - s ?
So, we repeat, there's no need to sympathize with him. His isn't
a case for sympathy. But, by jove, you. can take off your hat to him.
"Here's your hat!" said Woodrow
to Huntington Wilson" so quick that
it's strange that Taft's left-over as
sistant secretary of state ever-hung
it on the" Wilson rack"afr all.
A California assemblyman Was go
ing down for the third time in San
Francisco bay, when-some spectators
rescued him. It does, no harm to let
'em sink twice, in California.
WILEY'S SOUL GOES MARCHING ON
Old Doc Wiley ,mayr'be;out of office, but his soul goes, marching on.
Here's the Wisconsin supreme court out with a smashing ruling one
to make the foodfrau'dg, s(t up with a jerk.
ja effect it is that ifyou're injured by a dope parcel of "eats" -you don't
have to stop at suing the retailor, who oftener than not is innocent and too
poor to pay a judgment. You can go away back and exact damages of the
rich .manufacturer. . t
Court sensibly holds it's the manufacturer's business to know what
kind of stuff he's putting out. If he's either wickea" or careless, he!s not to .
shove the blame on to the little retailer, but must stand up and take his
medicine like a man.
This particular Wisconsin case hits Swift. -From the Swift cold
storage warehouse in Ashland, sausages are shipped to a merchant in Iron
River. -One gets into the tummy of little Willie Haley; makes the little
brother very ill; Papa Haley is a fighter; decides he'll, go to 'law.
No use suing the dealer around the corner; hence claims $5,000
damages of Packer Swift; lower court upholds Swift's liability; state's
highest court affirms; Swift threatens to appeal to the supreme court at
Washington; -probably he "can't; no federal law involved. J -
But 'twould be mighty interesting .to have the case go up just the same.
Like to see if the mighty bine would dare to overrule that juBt Wisconsin,
decision. - v
