DAILY COMMENT ON PEOPLE AND THINGS
some of them get along on the sala
ries they .get, living.
Only two sure things in the world,
says lie old proverb.
One is death the other is taxes.
You can ride twenty-eight miles for
a nickle in Chicago.
But who the dickens wants to
stand up for twenty-eight miles.
Municipal Judge Dolan said Mon
day that "men who carry revolvers
should be- driven from the city."
Good night! There goes a big hunk
of our population.
The constitutional amendment pro
viding that the president of the
United States be inaugurated early in
January got" a kick in the slats from
the Senate judiciary committee.
Hence, the main cheese of the land
will continue to march forth .on
March fourth:
Is there any satisfaction in know
ing that folks down at Atlantic City
are wearing straw hats? .B-r-r-r-r!
Also, pantaloon skirts and fur ank
lets are all to the mustard down by
the seaside.
Got nothin' on us in that line. Folks
here are wearing pantaloon skirts
and anyone's who's been out in the
past few days knows that fur anklets
listen well.
Dr. Richard Cabot of Harvard says
"with work, play and love" any life
is happy.
If a fat fellow can't get a job he's
in an ellofa fix. 'Cause, "nobody loves
a fat man," which leaves, playt as his
only salvation.
It's funny how some people try to
work both ends from the middle for
their own benefit.
For instance, The Fair pulled
strong for the "Go to Church Sun
day" campaign.
And then when Sunday came the
big majority of Pair employes had to
work practically all day.
We'll bet the employes feel like tell
ing The Fair to "Go To The Devil,"
instead of church, every day in the
year.
But, it can't be done. They need
their jobs. They've got to liye.
.That is, if you would call the way
It's an old saying but it's the wrong
dope, a bum steer, and a proverb that
ought tp be called in and put away in
camphor.
Death fs sure. But taxes are not,
according to the stuff now -coming
out.
The big guy who had control in
the office of "county attorney"; he
slipped away from his taxes.
And the. big guy who had real
" 'floonce' with the Boardof Review;
he slipped away, too.
'S all right, Qnly it makes the tax
rate higher and raises the cost of liv
ing. When we know a hole where the
rats are running in and taking the
cheese away from us, why don't we
stop up the hole?
One of the drawbacks about living
in Chicago is that a fellow has to
listen to. so much fool patter about
Mrs. Putter Pammer. .
There is nothing more useless than
some of Mrs. Putter Palmer's society
stunts and teas and travels unless it's
the chatter of the- newspapers about
what Mrs. Putter Pammer eats,
wears, sits down on, or stands up in
front of.
Wire pulling for this Putter Pam
mer patter to peter out.
This winter league baseball sched
ule wrangle is beginning to look good
for the lawyers.
Anyhow, the Federal League has
had some effect in toning up players'
salaries.
Quincy A. Shaw, president of the
Calumet & Hecla Mining Co. of Mich
igan, says he "regrets and resents"
the proposed congressional probe of
the Michigan copper strike.
Perhaps he'll regret it more than
ever after it's over.
