neat tenant who Improves his prop
erty, instead of further tearing it to
pieces, he refuses "to do any clean
ing." So the more respectable class
of people suffer for the other.
The Good Bool? says: "Cleanli
ness is next to Godliness." But filthy
people never read that part of the
bible. There is no more excuse for
their being in the world than there
is for rats being here. .Both destroy
more property than can be built or
repaired. I wish the board of health
could corral them all into a district
and fumigate th'em regularly once a
day with sulphur, formaldyhide, car
bolic acid, soap suds, water, pure air
and sunshine.
Something ought to be done to re
ward the innocent and the half who
suffer. Allen Steven, 3325 N. Ridge

YOU'RE WELCOME. As a union
man and a firm believer in justice to
union labor, I take this means to
show my appreciation to The Day
Book for the splendid work it has ac
complished for the broommakers in
their recent strike of the U. S. Broom
Co. for printing the truth which the
trust press suppressed. Frederic H.
Nujorks.
TO W. W. Referring to an article
by W. W. in your issue of Aug. 10 in
regard to the necessity for an organ
ization of the bank clerks of this city,
will say that he can learn something
to his advantage along those lines
by calling or addressing Secretary,
Room 510, 58 W. Washington st

WHY OIL AND WATER NEVER
MIX. I've heard it said that oil will
not mix with water. If this Is true,
explain, please, why it is so. Jas. D.
No oil and water never mix, and
for the good reason that the two
liquids are entirely different in their
composition. Both liquids, as you
know, are made of particles, or mol
ecules, and the molecules of oil are
very large, and the water molecules
are very small. Being different in
size they cannot very well mix or
fuse together, so when you join oil
and water, the big molecules or par
ticles keep apart from the little mol
ecules. When liquids are almost alike,
such as water and alcohol, their par
ticles link together and we say that
"they mix well"
THE CLEANEST CITY. Lately
we have heard the boast from vari
ous organizations for the suppression
of vice that, morally, Chicago is the
cleanest city in the world. To those
parties making this statement, or to
the people who believe in it, I would
suggest that they take a street car
ride past 22d st at either State st
or Wabash av. On 22d st from Wa
bash av. to Deaborn st., from at least
seven to ten cabs stand every night
from 7 p. m. until daylight
The negro drivers of these cabs are
so vociferous in their demands that
passers-by take their cab to the par
ticular resort for which they are a
"runner" that their conversation is
plainly audible to women and chil
dren riding past this location on the
State st, Wabash av. and 22d st car
lines. The fact that there is no rail
road station within miles of this loca
tion shows that these cabs are there
for no good purpose.
That the people of this city, to say
nothing of the various vice commis
sions and the police department, have
allowed this condition to continue for
the past ten years should certainly
make Chicago blush with shame.
E. J. Quinn.
RAIN KILLED BUSINESS
Clerk Sullivan in Judge Jarecki's
speeders' court was- counting the
day's receipts from fines :$410, $415,
$425
"How's business?" asked a re
porter. "Oh, it's rather dull lately. You
know it's been raining considerably.
Only took in $435 this afternoon."' .
