LOTS OF BOOZE. In view of the
present prohibition agitation it may
interest Chicagoans to read the con
tents of a letter which I received this
morning from Hoopeston, HI., dry ter
ritory. "This is a prohibition county and
it may interest you to know that two
barrels of alcohol were consumed
here Sunday, Sept 19, and over 30
fights resulted and several arrests

EVA TANGUAY. There is a young
lady who is jolly, individualistic and
the best tonic for every man or worn- ;
an to hear. She probably has more"
friends than any actress on the stage.
The secret of her success should be
the secret of every downcast woman's
uprising. If every girl would just
copy Eva Tanguay the devil and all
his angels could not push them down,
to tears, misery, despair and ruin.
Eva says: "Ha! The boys all talk
about me, but I don't care; I should
worry." The result is that when men
or woman, for that matter, talk about

these people who are suing for $50,- ,
000 damages; to all these tearful
women who are weeping because
some one is talking about them.
Come out of it! Smile if it hurts. "The
man worth while is the man with a
smile when everything goes dead
wrong." It is just as true of women.

if we just smile until people come
flocking irresistibly to our side from
