Years ago a prominent, cltl.en of Chi
cago, who at that time was president
of one of its lending Hubs, in Introduc
ing smother prominent citl.en as u
speaker at a chili banquet dwelt In
highly complimentary terms on the
hitter's efforts to bring about political
reforms. "Gentlemen," he said, "no
one In this city exerts a more powerful
Influence for good than does .Mr. Blank
when lie Is sober." Then In great con
fusion and amid an awed silence he
hastened to explain that Mr. lilank
eyerted, as he had Intended to say, a
powerful Influence when he was In ear
At the banquet given at the opening
of the present Hoard of Trade building
the elder Carter Harrison made a flam
boyant speech congratulating himself
on having been l orn In the same year
that the steam locomotive was Invent
ed. He was followed by the late Em
ery Storrs, who said that, most appro
priately, Carter Harrison and the loco
motive were born in the same year
since both of them had been blowing
off steam ever since.
It was Emery Storrs who said that a
fellow lawyer reminded him of n beau
tiful house with massive portals and
Impressive cornices, which, when you
opened the front door, landed you Im
mediately In the back yard.
Gliding Without Gold.
One more proof that all Is not gold
that glitters Is found In the fact that
much of the gold lettering seen on
signs, and also much of the gilding of
picture frames, has no gold whatever
about It. Among laymen the opinion
prevails that all such decoration re
quires the actual use of gold leaf, but
tho reality is different, and n substitute
that dellcs detection has been widely
used for some time. The exact effect
of gold Is secured by using a leaf of
either Bllvor or aluminium under yel
low paint. Tho metal backing gives
tho required luster, and the paint gives
the required color. This method can
not bo used In all cases, because tho
paint Is of peculiar quality and re
quires putting on with nu even thick
ness. For this reason it Is generally
applicable only to flat surfaces. Parts
of a glided picture frame which are
Biolded Into waving surfaces generally
Rqulre genuine golf leaf to cover them.
