VOL XXVIII FEBRUARY .24 1921 No. 42
HE WANTED TO BE HANGED QUITE PUBLICLY.
A Chicago murderer who was hanged one fine morning recently,
kept the newspaper readers of that city entertained during the last week
of his life with his denunciations of capital punishment. One day he
suggested that they publicly hang him in Grant park, which is the lake
front adjacent to the business section and its teeming millions. He said
that hundreds of thousands would see him swing and that the gruesome
ness of capital punishment would be too much for 95 per cent of them.
He forgot to speak about the effect on those hundreds of thousands
if they had all witnessed the fearful spectacle when he walked into a
restaurant and shot the proprietor dead, nor of the gruesomeness to the
pejople in the dining room when the muraered man's blood was spattered
over their tables. We rather imagine that those diners thought pretty
well of capital punishment at that particular moment and wished that they
could pull the rope. t
Thus it is with all assassins. They forget about their victims whose h
joyous lives they have blotted out, of the wives and mothers and chil- h
dren whom they have stricken with grief. They only think of their own I
miserable selves-of the terrible thing it is for the law to take a life that i
had no compunction in blotting out another life.
Perhaps capital punishment should be abolished in the promotion of a a
greater civilisation, but certainly there are two sides to the question. %,

"When I was out walking along the Sat

who were going adventuring, "I said to tai
-"'Shall I hurry to the village and dit
get some meat for tomorrow?' And er
then I decided I wouldn't. For we d;:
don't need meat for tomorrow, and it es;

things it's different, as you know." It
The boy and girl nodded their heads, ph

FREN('H SANDALS IN ALGIERS.
A new business house of New Or
leans, and one whose product is fast
b-coming known. is that of Jules L.
Brana & Bro.. located at 611 Bour
bon street, who are the exclusive
dealers in the United States for the
justly famous French Sandals. To
a very great many people it is not
necessary to explain just what
French Sandals are, for truly French
Sandals are not a novelty, having
been worn almost exclusively by the
inhabitants of the Pyrenees Moun
tains of France and Spain for cen
turies. In 1911i1 they were intro
duced into this country by the fath
er of the present importers, and to
day thousands are .-earing t em.
especially persons who are uinfor
tunately afflicted with foot troubles
it is said for mrench Sandals that
physicians reconTtnend them to pati
ents for relief 'n all foot ailments,
such as corns. bunions. callouses.
and other ail ts. These sandals
are frictionless, lve the feet proper
airing, are very flexible and will
not irritate the skin. The soles are
made of jute and the top of canvas
or felt, and neatly trimmed, making
them attractive, strong and durable,
and this material will outwear lea
ther. Persons standing on their
feet all day in the home or at work
could not possibly find shoes as com
fortable and economical. French
Sandals can be washed with soap
and water and hung on the family Ej
clothes line and look new indefinite
ly. They are made in all styles and
colors for children, women and
men, and all French Sandals bear
the trade-mark "Brana." Renecky's
Shoe Store. 700 Patterson street, is
the representative in Algiers for this
product, and a full lIne of sizes for
all is carried in stock.
