DAILY COMMENT ON
A bartender writes that eating ap
ples will destroy the whisky habit.
Now, by golly, Whe.n a fellow says
he had a "pippin," we don't know
whether he means an apple or a
Mrs. Richard B. McLean, mother of
America's richest little boy, doesn't
find time for Tangoing.
And the reason is because she
needs her time for work in the in
terest of the welfare of the poor.
How strange that sounds, in these
, times. But a bright spot pops up
every now and theii, to show things
better than they might have been.
Trib must have moved Georgiana
Paulker, the children's story lady, to
the first page today.
One clever little bit of fiction about
how easy it is to get jobs when one
is a professor of physiology of the
Crane Technical. High looking per
fectly natural disguised" as a tramp.
And just by the way all a profes
sor of physiology nelds to do to look
like a tramp according to ,Prof.
Hedge's assertion is to "let his beard
grow three days."
Good tip Tor amateur Sherlocks.
Not only are we to believe that
jobs are to be had for the plucking,,
but kind benevolent employers re
fused to take the disguised professor
at his own valuation and insisted on
raising the ante.
And some employers, distracted to
get men to take begging $12 a week
jobs, sobbed almost on the dis
guised professor's shoulder.
Did the alarm clock go off yet?
Pshaw, it can't be time to get up
Oh, we've got the answer to the
riddle. The professor went after jobs
advertised in the Tribune. Oh, hum!
c Judge Scully of the Municipal
Court has got the right dope on the

ment, be he rich or poor, let him
serve time. Here's his argument:
Two rich men and a poor man are
fined for the same offense. The rich
men pay their fines and go free. The
poor, man hasn't the dough, so he
must serve time to work it out.
"He's serving time for being poor,"
says Scully, "and it isn't right."
More power to that line of argu
ment. So the Boston Store girls some
days are forced to eat their lunch
as early as eight o'clock and then
perhaps the next day somewhere
around eleven o'clock.
That ought to be fine regularity
for their system NOT.
And say, we. must give the Boston"
Store credit for this they actually

APPLES DESTROY WHISKY
HABIT, SAYS BARTENDER
'Editor Day Book:
' Will you permit a bartender of 25
years' experience in his business to
giveyour readers what he believes to
be an .antidote for the liquor habit?
It's simple. Eat apples. The man
who eats three apples .a day will soon
lose his desire for drink. If boys were
taught to eat them each day, they
would be in little danger.
I know, for I have tried it on many
of my "star" customers. It lost trade
for me, but there are some decent
men in the business. In my expe
rience I never sold a drunken man
or a minor a drink and never took
one myself. And I have sold drinks
all the way from frontier towns to
the big cities.
Of course, it will not always work.
But, as a rule, the apple habit and
the whisky habit- clash. To dodge
whisky try apples then more ap
