SUGGESTION FOR AUTO OWNER.
Mr. Horse Owner has a suggestion to
make to Mr. Auto Owner. It is neither
a kick, griev nor knock, but only a
suggestion. It is that ithe auto owners
refrain from driving up in front of a
hitching post and stopping their ma
chines'Mn such a position that the hitch
ing post is put ut of commission for
the use for which it was originally in
tended. A feet feet up or down the
street would make no material differ
ence to the honk wagon owner, the
horse owner says, and would give the
latter an available place to hitch.
