THE N. Y. FOOD RIOT. Anybody
anywhere in this land of ours can
appreciate what was behind the food
riots in New York Tuesday. The one
big thing howled against by Amer
ican people for the past couple of
years has been the "high cost of liv
ing." In every nook and corner of the
U. S. higher prices have hit hard at
the workingman's pocketbook.
Probes, boycotts and all sorts of
other things have been pulled off
right and left, and yet prices stay up
around the moon.
Chasing the Food Hogs reminds us
of the old county fair game of -trying
to catch the greased pig. Our Food
Pigs of today are greased with greed,
hoggishness and selfishness, and ab
solutely refuse to be caught
JEWEL MYSTERIES Being con
cerned in jewel mysteries gets your
name into print, puts. you to a lot of
bother, and, even then, you are likely
not to get your jewels back. Hence,
unless you love publicity, like to be
bothered and want to know that you
are minus some val'able jools, you're
a lucky guy or leddy if you "ahVt
got no jools."
Jewelry does no more toward' mak
ing the man xr woman than clothes
do. Try .going out promenading. 1
with merely a string of pearls on.
You'll land in the booby hatch or the
nut house. Have you ever seen any
of your wealthy gentlemen friends
with just a large diamond ring on
their index finger? Nix!
If you must wear jools you can get
blamed good imitations for a dime
per "diamong" ring, or a quarter per
string of "pearls." Then if you get
robbed you've got tht laugh on some
body and you're only out the price
of a round meal.
Shucks! All they wear down in
Hawaii and Honolulu in the line of
jewelry is strings of stuff that look
like shredded wheat, and all of Amer
ica is singing the praises of the folks
in those places.
A pair of garters is the only sensi
ble hunk of jewelry, anyway, if they
can be called jewelry.
EGGS BY THE POUND. Kansas
City, Mo., city council has adopted
avoirdupois standard for grocery
stores,. That means that eggs will be
sold by the pound. The question that
rises in our minds is, do eggs get
heavier as they grow older. If that
is the case, some eggs should weigh
up about one to the pound.
"I used to drive this piece of meat
around town," said the New Yorkei
as he sat down to a bit of horse
A lot of folks will have a laugh be
cause a Chicago copper was beaten
up and relieved of his gun Tuesday.
Because a man is an officer is no rea
son why he should be able to get the
best of three men as big as he is.
It really is tough luck to lose a
man who is entitled to the title of
"Fighting Fred" Funston.
Wanted One sure way of proving
to "Jim" O'Leary that Woodrow Wil
son was really re-elected president of
the United States.
