RAMONA BORDEN DIDN'T
COME HOME AT ALL
New York, April 25. It was re
ported this afternoon that private de
tectives had located "Miss Ramona
Borden in this city, in company with
' two young women and one elderly
man. Her father has been notified.
New York, April 25. Ramona Bor
den.'the 17-year-old daughter of the
millionaire milkman, is still missing.
She has not returned to the Pompton

BERT L. TAYLOR, "HUMORIST"
Consider Bert- L. Taylor, who
writes a column of alleged humor in
"There are fewer hearts in the
'heart of the West Side' than in any
other territory of like size in the
world," says Taylor. "Hell is a
cheery place in comparison."
Very likely, if anyone thought it
worth while to take the trouble to
find out, he would discover that what
Taylor didn't know about the West
Side would fill all the Carnegie librar
ies in existence.
Still, it is a very cheap humor that
finds its nucleus in jeering at the
fellow human beings of the humor
ist ' f
. And" Chicago is unfortunate in hav
ing citizens "who believe themselves
highbrows because they do NOT
work-very hard and DO play golf and
live in the suburbs, who will jeer at
less fortunate citizens who earn their
daily bread. .
As to- Taylor's jibe at Police Captain-Thomas
F. Meagher in the veiled
line's, "The 'invisible force' to which
Judge Mahoney alludes, is visible
enough, but it is hard to get the
goods on him," that is a little too
cheap to comment on.
DR. ROGERS GAVE A BABY TO

He admitted giving a baby to a wo-man-whose
references were furnish
ed from a house In the "red-light"
Chairman Curran came right back
at hi mby saying: "A man who has
a conscience wouldn't send a. yellow
dog to a home ui the 'red-light' dis
trict." The woman who had adopted the
baby was in the committee's' room at
the Planters' Hotel, but was excused
from testifying until Monday be
cause of a death in the family. The
