WHY, INDEED?I thank you for
printing my article in The Day Book.
Keferring to your headline, "Why the
Dare?" will say I sent same article
to the Tribune, Herald and Post and
"they "killed" it, I am now quite sure.

stance of the difference between The
Day Book and any other Chicago

ANOTHER WIFE'S CONFESSION.
I just want to write to you and
tell you how very much I appreciate
the "Confessions of a Wife." That is
the truest story I have ever read. It
seems as though Margie Waverly
-were writing the story of my life.
Her thoughts and ideas are exactly
like mine. I have often wondered if
any one else thought as I did, be
cause "people think T am the strang
est person they have ever met
Dear Aunt Mary, how I love her!
It seems as though I know every
character personally. Mrs. Waverly
wrote, if she had had her baby noth
ing would hurt her. I have my baby,
but still the neglect "hurts just the

for poor Pat Sullivan. How happy
she is now, but I am just wondering
how long it will be before the love
light goes out from her eyes? Here's
hoping it never goes out and that she
will never know neglect and unhap

think a great deal and get so lone

In a big city like this where you
never get acquainted it is so very
lonesome. All the other young girls
I meet don't think as I do. All they
think of is dances and good times, so
I can't talk to them as I would like
to. It seems as nobody understands
me. I Hope you won't think I am
foolish for writing to you. I "just

EXCESSES. To my mind, know
ing what I know, seeing what I have
seen in various parts of the .world,
as well as in Chicago, it would be
well for the government to step in
and curtail the liberty and freedom
that some people acquire.
The laws granting liberty and free
dom should include people abusing
themselves with that which makes
them lower than the beasts of the
field. Rotting livers, kidneys, stom
achs, spleens, etc., destroy home life
and make the lives of mothers, wives,
sisters and sweethearts a veritable
hell on earth. We might have said
congested livers, floating kidneys,
gastritis of the stomach, etc, which
would have been more scientific, but
the ruder word, rotting, covers all.
If a man drank, used snuff or to
bacco and only he himself suffered,
then he might go ahead, but what I
might to do to myself to injure my
self, causing my carcass slowly to
rot causing me to give vent to anger,
hate, malice, emitting poisonous mat
ter from the very .pores of my hands,
to anything I touch, all these destruc
tive agencies go far, far beyond my
sphere, therefore it is my place to do
nothing that will interfere with the
normal organic functions of my per
son. So with every other individual.
For abusing liberty and freedom
the government might well step in
and abolish alcoholics and tobaccos.
A great cry would go up from those
who are making easy living .from ill
gotten gains; but men's bodies would
be healthier, their minds more clear;
asylums, jails, prisons, redlightdis-.
