This is really thel)est way to see
1 Chicago. For Chicago is unlike most
towns. We have all the room there
is to grow north, west and south, but
the plan here is to grow right up in
' the air in one little spot about a half
I mile square. This makes it possible
for us to have many acres of unoccu
pied land in all other sections of the
city and it helps make more money
for the Fiejd estate.
Beware of pickpockets, of course.
It may do you no good, but it is quite
the thing to beware, just the same.
Bewaring is one of the best things we
do in Chicago. There are different
ways of bewaring pickpockets. The
only safe one so far discovered, how
! ever, is not to have anything in your
pockets worth picking. Then the joke
is on the pickpocket and part of it
' may be on a detective. Chicago is a
, large city and we have all kinds of
detectives. Some of them detect
crooks, others detect suckers and
rubes, while still others couldn't de

first only goes when it doesn't hurt
business. Really the only safe way to
cross the crowded loop streets is to
stay out of the loop and do your
crossing near the city limits.
But if you want to please Chicago

spend it here. It is real rude of you
to take any back home with you. To

NURSES' EXAMINATION. Have
read article, "Women Protest Inti
mate Examination of Nurses by City
Employes" in Day Book of July 30.
Am more than surprised to read
such false statements.
I took examination April 19, 1915,
and July 21, 1915. I cannot under- t
stand where this article originates.
I'll take oath on everything holy
that the examination was not in any
way embarrassing. The physical
test was as follows: Eyesight tested
by a man in presence of about twen
ty nurses, applicants waiting in turn
for their test Then one or two at a
time were called into a small room
aril a woman physician there exam
ined heart and lungs. This com
pleted physical examination.
wiinpvpr said that nelvic organs
were examined must be delirious or
possess a yellow streak. Each appli
cant was in woman physician's office
about three minutes.
If any one who was present in
Room 1006, City Hall building, April
19, 1915, and July 21, 191S, took the
nurses' examination and says that
physical examination was in any
way different than I have stated they
ought to be taken to a psychopathist
for an examination. R. N.

The sermon was brought into prom
