NOT LOAFERS I am writing you
in behalf of the candy butchers in
theaters, who are judged wrong by
the public who believe them to be
loafers. I have been in the business
for over 12 years. I have averaged
over $40 a.week. I am my own boss
and more independent than anybody
in any line of business. I also wish
to state that candy butchers in Chi
cago are organized and have their
own union. P. Sapertos, National
Theater, State 'and Harrison.
VERY LIKELY. A hungry bo

season; and searched for shelter high

he went into, a granary, where on a

nothing better. And soon his weary

But soon the weary bo did wake,
from soul-refreshing slumber, and
hove this crumb-lined blanket on an
unusued pile of lumber. Prom out the

about the war business, I want to'cSfl'I
attention to one thing which' "tHIer
plute press has overlooked as a'perJW
tinent news 'item: " "
Some time ago Senator Stone of
Missouri introduced in the Unffrkl
States senate a resolution whJ2fi
reads that war against another nS,
tion (not in case of an invasion) toa1'
be declared only by referendum, aiKT'
that every voter's wish must be r&su
istered in writing, with his narire
signed thereto, and in case a maof-
Ity vote for war, each and every male
voter who declared his desire for vffEP
must satiate it by immediately 'f
sponding to the call by enlisting as4at
private. And every one who adv&f1
cated war, either by mouth or wftfi f
ing, must join.
Guess this would interest the'Jbig.
fellows into advocating peace. NfeflS'
