BLAME ADS FOR THE MESS OF
BURIAL BUSINESS '
Body snatching, fake funeral ad
vertising and the bad manners of un
dertakers who hustle for burial busi
ness would be lessened in Chicago if
there wasn't such a regular run of
cash payments going to newspapers
This is the position of the Chicago
Undertakers' Ass'n. To back it up,
J. L. Purcell, secretary, and J. A.
Gavin of the executive board show an
advertisement which he says was

is the ad the News advertising, man

"Personal An ordinance prohibit-

dertaker's advertisement to write or
call in person at the office of the Chi

prosecuted absolutely free of cost"

our attention of a woman living on
the West Side who arranged for a
$150 funeral at $65 from an adver
tising undertaker. His bill of extras
brought the cost over $100."

where lynching is threatened, and it
is evident that if any of the suffra

police are not near to protect them
they will be treated with considerable
The Daily Express, in an editorial,
demands that parliament take up the
matte rat its reassembling next week,
and that a short act be passed pre
scribing penal servitude with full
rigor, and ignoring women's hunger
At a meeting of the suffragets a
resolution was passed to send a depu
