HIRAM ON JITNEYS. Gov. Hiram
Johnson of California refused to sign
a measure passed by the legislature
regulating the jitneys, thus permit
ting it to die. Gov. Johnson states
his reasons as follows:
"The jitneys present a serious
problem. They should be regulated.
They cannot be properly regulated by
an inflexible law of the state. The
problem varies in the different com

deal with it and each should insist
upon appropriate measures to pro

hence might be wholly inappropriate
and unjust, and the state can only

that has resulted in stirring up the
whole southwestern border at -further
cost and worry.
Huerta is an undesirable.
He should be fired out of this country.

kitchen up to her elbows in dish
water. The Grand Duke Nicholas has pur
chased a 1916 motor car, and hell

Why should anyone invent a straw
klapphut? Any ordinary straw will
fold too often to suit its owner?
Quebec turned out 14,000,000 lbs.
of maple sugar last year, some of
which came from map"le trees.
The German defense of the use of
gas bombs is "they did it first" How
like small boys nations are!

A QUIET PLACE
Bink What a pity it is that people
talk so much when they haven't any
thing worth saying.
Spink Yes, but if they didn't,
think what a quiet place the world
