SOCIAL ECONOMICS. We grow
and manufacture all that we need
and there is no necessity for us to
depend on foreign marke"fe-altogether
to bring us prosperity.
We have enough folks here ready
to consume our products had they
the opportunity. The workers have
to buy what they need, but they can
not buy if they haven't the money,
and they cannot have money if they
have not work.
There are plenty of things that can
be done to elimimite hard times, but
it depends almost entirely on the pol
icy our government will pursue. Our
government could supply all of the
unemployed with work and good
wages, for our great rivers, our state
roads and other public constructions.
Besides the money appropriated for
that purpose the workers originally
produced. It would mean lasting pros
perity for the farmers, railroads and
business in general.
While we are waiting and dreaming
let us smile as often as We can, and
keep fishing. If we cannot catch fish
today we may tomorrow. Frank
ANSWER TO R. H. I am a con
stant colored reader of The Day
Book. I am glad to see a white
woman with a white Christian heart
ask The Day Book readers' opinions
for such an injustice against the col
ored people. If there were more
Christians as R. H. stated, such
things would not happen, for color
would not count. If there were more
people like R. H. and Warren Bur
ham the U. S. would be a good place
for the colored citizens to live in, for
the colored citizens belong in U. S.
and have fought and died for their
country. So why should they be re
fused anywhere in TJ. S. on account
If there was a law to revoke the
license of any place that refused a
colored man on account of color
there would be no such crime com
mitted against respectable colored
Let us have more good white
hearted Christians like R. H. May
FISH. Having noticed the re
marks of Mr. Tom Nolan in May 26
issue of Day Book with regards to
fish peddlers riding on Halsted St.
cars with baskets of fish, and also re
plies to same by Mr. Davis and Mr.
Smith, we wish to state that we ped
dle fish, also, but use a push cart,
not a street car to inconvenience the
public by such an offensive smell.

GEYSERS OF YELLOWSTONE.
Please tell me how many geysers
there are in Yellewstone National
park. Also how high "Old Faithful"
and other geysers throw their spray?
There are about 70 geysers in Yel
lowstone park authorities seem to
differ as to the number. Burton
Holmes gives the total as 100 and
there are 3,000 "little geysers" or hot
springs and vents of mud volcanoes.
The Giant is Yellowstone's biggest
geyser. Its spray of boiling water is
flung 200 feet high and it Is five feet
in diameter. It spouts or "plays" at
irregular times, but the display lasts
only about 10 minutes. "Old Faith
ful" or the "Clock of Yellowstone,"
so called because it "sticks to its
schedule" of eruptions, which take
place every 65 minutes and continues
for about four minutes. The column
of water reaches a height of about
150 feet. The Giantess, Bee Hive fjj)
and Castle are Yellowstone geysers
famous the world over. .
The girl at the exchange, after you"
have waited fully ten minutes:
"They don't answer. What num
ber was it you wanted?" SL Jamea
