We had just had a fairly good dinner for a working man. I was making 2 or ?2."0 a day. Our house rent was $10 per month. Wife was a good house keeper and we were just struggling. along, but not saving a cent, nor mak ing any headway at all. Suddenly I found myself gazing at a billboard across the street gaily painted and I read the words written in flaming let ters, 'The beer which made Milwau kee famous. Above the words two worktngmen, sat at a table4 drinking, and one of these fellows looked so made every bottle and glass jingle and the noisy puzzling crowd to stop and stare with amazement. No wonder, for 'Bill the tippler was on the wafer waern and there he stays to this day." "What has been the result, Mr. Walsh?" I inquired. "Thank 'you. People do really call me now 'Mr. Walsl or 'William.' Re sults? Why, bles you. Can't you call around and see me at heme? Yes, at Home.

"All day It never left me. Next day it was still with me in the foundry where I worked, and the words 'the beer which made Milwau kee and Bill-the-tlppler famous'' rang in my ears. Yes, I had helped. . in drinking the beer, to make Milwaukee famous, and had won ; for myself the name which I was coming more, and more to despise. - "It was thei, I say, that I began to think, to think hard and to do a little calculating. For ten years I had fre quented the corner " saloon , keptj by Gus Murphy, an old schoolmate. - In the morning, on the way to the foun dary. I usually had two drinks; at Loon tvo more and from two to three or more in the evening. You see, Lwas tnjnKing, putting two ana two togeth er. This had been my drinking cus tom for ten years and the average amount spent could not have been ess than 40 cents a day. I then took a piece of paper and set the figures down with a lead pencil and began a ittle multiplication and addition. For ty cents a day meant $2.80 per week. then ; began to figure what such a sum u that would amount' to if it had been put Into a savings and loan association eacJ) week for 10 years, I knew i , that most associations allow at east a per cent semi-annually and was amazed to find that $2.80 invested at 5 per cent with the interest added to the principal and reinvested every six months would in ten years amount to ?1 859.22. Hence, I had handed over the bar into the pockets of Murphy during the last. 10 years '$18592 and had received practically nothing of value in return, all for the sake of helping to make Milwaukee famous and 'Blll-the-tippler a fool. t "The next day at noon I sauntered into Murphy'a place There he sat near his cash register, as usual, well groomed and smiling, while his fat white-aprcned bartender was serving the thirsty customers. : Gus nodded slightly, looked me over with inward contempt, no doubt. Having no money to spend, I dropped ipto a chair in the corner and watched Gus register the nickels and dimes which help to make Milwaukee famous and line his own pockets with treasure. Shortly he pulled out a diamond-stud ded watch, a Christmas gift from his wife, costing, so 1 had heard, $275, True, ihe measure lacked the neces sary two- thirds majority in order to make it effective.
