DAILY COMMENT ON
It was a cold enough day yester
day as far as the doings of the
weather man were concerned, but
It was a dern sight, colder for ten
of our breezy city's) alderjnen in the
election booths. They were frozen
out.
And the women had a little blizzard
all their own in three wards." Elev
enth, Sixteenth and' Twenty-.third
wards please reply.
If, with only two-thirds of women
voting, the fair sex can swing things
as they did Tuesday, it ought to be
mighty interesting at the" final elec
tion with the whole bunch casting a
vote.
Rich man, poor man, beggar man,
thief doctor, lawyer, merchant,
thief they all voted for and against
somebody yesterday.
And now the vacant store -windows
about our town will take their part
in election doings. .
Twon't be long before every Tom,
Dick and Harry, and we mustn't for
get to include every Hazel, Ruth and
Mary, aldermanic. candidates, will be
gazing at pa'ssersby out of posters
stuck in show windows, stuck on
fences and stuck on anything else
hanging loose about town.
And a bunch of the candidates are
bound to be stuck oti election day.
Well, anyway, the. primaries are all
over but the shoutin', and "there ain't
goln' to be no shoutin " in some
places.
Police picked up a seven-year-old
boy on South Halsted street and held
him until his dad called for him, be
cause the lad had an air rifle.
The difference between that
youngster and a good many men who
parade Halsted street is that you
could see'fhe boy's gun.
And, also, the police were .game
enough to. hold him.
Wonder if ihe police kept the air
ri'flle for future use, And was it a
hot-air rifle?
Now,, here is a difficult problem!
PEOPLE AND THINGS
Judge. Fdell has ruled that the four
members of the school board ousted
by Mayor Harrison are entitled to
their seats.
And, at the same time, four others
are occupying the seats taken away
from the four who are evidently able
to "come back."
Get your seats for another scrap.
It looks as though somebody has got
to sit on somebody else's lap.
With an earthquake and blizzard in
the same 'month, New York tango
dancers must be considerably shaken
up.
Should think they would be
"dippy."
We think we will originate a new
dance and call it the "Housemaids'
Knee." How's that?
Looks like a new fight center is
about to be established.
The Justice of Peace in Wilkes-
barre, Pa., says he's going to beat up
every man brought before him for
wife-beating, even if he is as big as a
mountain.
Now there ought to be some inter
esting bouts pulled off in that lo
cality. The butter and eggJoard is up be
fore Judge" Landis, accused of fixing
artificial prices.
Anything doing anywhere in the
lipe of artificial butter? We are
merely inquisitive.
