It may be true in our fathers' or
mothers' days they did not hang on
corners, but nevertheless they had
other 'fun that the young boy of to
day doesn't have. I remember when
we used to play ball on the streets,
etc. If the boystry.it today they are
Mr. Cochran, I'm delighted to see
you take such interest in the boys
of Chicago.
Charles W. Schimmel,
41 7 S. Green St.
Editor Day Book: We thank you
for the interest you are taking in the
boys. We feel that your effort will
help our boys out here in this ward,
as they have no place to play but the
streets. We have been trying to get
in touch with some one to help the
boys with either a playground,, read
ing room, gymnasium or something
to get them interested enough in to
try and keep them out of the pool
rooms. I am a constant reader of
The Day Book, as it stands for the
truth. Sincerely,
Blanche M. Gibson,

New York, June 10. Indications
that a general understanding among
business firms throughout the coun
try existed whereby newspapers op
posing what they consider their in
terests are to be bQycotted on adver
tising were denied by Marshall Cush
ing, editor and publisher of How, a
magazine for the manufacturer, but
he admitted that "the manufacturers
of the country are begining to un
derstand that it is to their interest to
give advertising to their friends.
Publication of a letter from Henry
B. Joy, president of the Packard Mo
tor Co. of Detroit, to Cushing brought
the New York editor into the lime
light In his letter Joy said in part:
"Certainly no manufacturer de-J
sires in any way to purchase or dic
tate the editorial policy of any publi
cation, but certainly it is his privilege
to refrain from advertising in a pub
lication which, in his judgment, is do
ing his business more harm by the
doctrine which it advocates than he
can receive in any possible way in
benefit to his business by advertising

M. Walker heard evidence two days
and after attorneys' arguments, said:-
"Evidence that a decoy call was
sent to Person by Tony Musser,
whom he killed, is not denied by any
evidence in this case. The state's at
torney from DeWitt county has not
brought in evidence to show there
was no provocation for Person's deed.
The testimony that Musser came to
the interurban station and had Per
son nointed out to him has not been
controverted. The evidence that Per
son did not know Musser before the '
shooting and that the entire affray1
occupied less than- two minutes of
time, lessens the belief that Person's .
act was premeditated and with malice
aforethought." o o
