ONE MAN'S OPINIONS!
Mandel Bros, I notice that the
lopp press is ignoring altogether the
matter of the city permitting Mandel
Bros, to build and use a sub-basement
in their department store. The

As the advertising newspapers print
no news, and take no position one
wajl or the other, the public side
alone is getting publicity and only
through The Day Book. This is to
notify Mandel Bros, that if they wish
to get their side of the argument to
the public, I .will publish it in The
Day Book without any expense to
.them. I want Day Bookvreaders to
have both sides of the argument, lf
there are two sides, so that readers
may draw their own conclusions.
Hence this offer to Mandel Bros.
If they see fit to take advantage of
it, they are welcome to a reasonable
amount of space. So boil it down.4
I am doing this really more to be fair
to my readers than to Mandel Bros.
And the offer goes to any other de
partment store, at any time they
think they ate not fairly treated in
The Day Book.
Save Your Eyes, Bave YOU no
ticed that the type of The Day Book
is larger than the type used by any
other Chicago daily, and- that it is
easy, on your eyes?
Compare The Day Book with the
Daily News, for illustration. The type
in the Daily News is so small that it
must be hard on the eyes.
, Some time ago I was talking with
an oculist and he said that the small
type in Chicago, newspapers, read in
moving street cars, where tie motion
kept constantly changing the focus
of the eye, was undoubtedly respon
sible for much of the trouble people
have with their eyes.
Did YOU ever notice how many
men, women and even, children fa
Chicago wear eye-glasses?

THE PUBLIC FORUM
HENRY GEORGE AND THE KAI
SER: Henry Cfeorge demands equal
right to the use of the earth. The
kaiser demands a place in the sun.
Henry George means individual right
to. use land and own the product.
The kaiser means the right of a mon
arch to claim an empire, as agent of
the Creator, and sublet the land to
nobles, who will claim the product of
the land, that is, exploit the producer.
The kaiser conceals "his meaning un
der a poetic expression. Henry
George uses plain words that convey
to us the true beginning of political
economy the condition of free pro
duction and just possession of prop
erty. C. F. Hunt.
EDUCATION It is astonishing
how much a child will learn during
the first six years of life, and how
little it learns after going to school.
I mean, how .little it learns worth
whjle. I have raised six children,
Several of them are married and have
children of their own. I often won
der if I was wise enough when first
married to do my duty by my chil
dren. I did the best I could, of
course; but I know now that the chil
dren leanled things from other chil
dren that I should have explained
with a cleaner and more wholesome
significance. I wonder how so many
boys and girls come out of it all as
well as they do, when I think of the
ignorance of parents; and I think
that I was as ignorant as any of them
when my first baby came. I think
there should be a mothers' club in
every schoolhouse, so that mothers
could learn something themselves.
Children know so much more than
we mothers think they know. I don't
see much to hope for from fathers,
most of them are always so busy with;
