"hutffc their holes'."; It isn't the news paper man's faul that there is no market for their wares. Alas, the pot does not like to call the kettle ilack, C. D. Rhodes. OHQ- LETTER TO THE EDITOR Editor Day Book? I wish to bring to your attention the want ads in the Daily News and the Tribune. I have been out of employment for a few months and in endeavoring to gain employment of any land have an swered numerous blind ads in both of these papers, even putting in stamps for reply; and have put the five-day return notice on each letter, stating fully my age, height, nationality, married, number in family and my ability to handle such jobs as I an swered. I have first-class references as,,to character and ability and cause of leaving former employment, but have never even got a reply from a single one. I am commencing to -think that the papers mentioned use this means for filling space in their papers, and it is not original, as I think any business man upon, receiv ing replies to his ads, even after his wants were supplied, and, receiving a stamp for reply, would make some re ply. In last Sunday's Tribune there was an ad as follows: "Guards Wanted 5'ft 9 or over, of good appearance and references. Apply between 3 and 4 p. m. 2201 W. Harrison st," I went out to see what the guards were wanted for. I got there at 2:30 and there was between 200 and 300 mea there of all ages and classes, standing on the corner in front 'of said number. The store on ground floor was empty, there being two flats above, apparently residence flats. About 3:10 p. nua man came down street and said: "I "have all the men I want' and walked down tb,e street west half a block and .stood there. I eonversed with him. He said there was no strike, that there was some trouble between two parties about some property and that he had 60 guardfr all ready, and would' put on 40 more: He said he was going to open up an office downtown and to meet him the following evening, last Monday, at Madison and Fifth ave nue. He told different stories to dif ferent parties who spoke to him. The whole thing looked very sus piclious to me. I went to Madison and Fifth Monday, but he never showed up. J.
