HEART THROBS FROM
BY A GOOD FELLOW.
Here are a few more letters from
the children who want Santa Claus
to come to them this year, through
the Good Fellows:
"Dear Mr. Good Fellow: I heard
that you were helping the poor, so
I thought I would write to you to
tell you that we need it very bad.
My mother is working hard every
day in the laundry. She gets $1.17
a day. My father is dead. He died
the 2nd of February. And we think
that our Christmas will be very
"I am 14 years old. Something I
need is a pair of shoes, double Es
fours, and a hat, a pair of union
suit, pair of stockings, a dress.
Dear Mr. Good Fellow I will give
many thanks if you will try and
help us out and we will have a
pretty slim dinner. My poor
mother is sickly and so hardly able
to work. We are terribly out of
food, so it will make us a slim din
ner. So if you could help us out
1 a little we would give many
thanks to you. I have a darling
little brother, he is three years old.
He needs a little hat, pair of shoes,
pair of stockings, and will miss
papa because he got a few things
last Christmas. Papa wasn't very
well, anyway, so if you could help
us a little we would give many,
many thanks. Belle.
This little girl will have her first
Bad Christmas. She says:
"Dear Editor: I have read of the
Good Fellows tonight, of the good
man who has plenty of children's
shoes, and wondered If he hade a
pare for me to wair to Sunday
"My papa got his leg broke to
day, and our Christmas will be sad.
"My little sister, Marie, has just
recovered from the pneumonia, she
is 3 years, and I am past 10 years.
This is my first sad Christmas.
Mama said Santa wodent see me
this Christmas. I will close hoping
I am not too late. Find me at
Perry street. Opal ."
I Here is another case where
- clothing and shoes are needed:
"My dear Mrs. Good Fellow. I've
heard you was helping the poor
children. My papa is sick and

LOS ANGELES. Cal., Dec. 23.—
Chief of Police Galloway handed
his resignation to Mayor Alexander
today, to take effect January 3.
Alexander announced that the
police committee selected Lieuten

loway. Less than a year ago the
new chief was a sergeant in charge
of a Chinatown squad. Galloway's
resignation was not unexpected.

jTEIDAY, DECEMBER 23, 1910.
Man in the*
—in his line of business
I shipped in last year over 200 carloads of
goods. What I will ship this year I will tell you
in the next—if I live. There are people in the
same kind of business that wish I were out of it,
or somewhere else, for the benefit of themselves
and not the consumer. The undertaker might
take me out of my house. Again lam prepared
for that emergency, having my own monument,
prepared and paid for, to suit my own wishes
and taste. But the sheriff won't, and can't,
take me out, for I have behind me the great
mass of consumers who remember the 'past—
when I came here. They were getting short
measured flasks—five ounces instead of eight—
10 ounces in place of 16—24 ounces instead of
32. Again I pay $4.60 more to the Anheuser-
Busch people for their beer than I would have
to pay for beer made in Spokane, and sell it at
the same price—five cents. I sell a big glass of
imported Coburger beer, made in Germany, for
10c a glass, and by the way, I am the only one
man on the Pacific coast that ships it in carload
lots. The consumer gets the benefit of my sav
ings in freight, in the size and price of his glass.
Giving the \benefit to the consumer in quality
and quantity gets me the come-back-again trade.
That keeps my help busy, and I have 95 of them,
It keeps them from rusting out, which is very
beneficial to their health, and quite a saving to
them in the payment of doctor's bills.

what others - promise to do I do do, and that
