We do -well if we don't starve while
struggling for existence, thus piling
up riches for the predatory and

sweetheart, your sweetheart! My
heart bleeds seeing you deprived of
your natural rights to enjoy sunshine,
flowers and all the beauties of nature,
but beyond sympathy I am powerless.
May we hope that, if not we, the

HUMANE TREATMENT. An ar
ticle appeared in an evening paper
last week which treated of the cruel
manner in which dogs are maimed by
dog-catchers and starved afterward
to death at the city pound. Why
should this condition exist in the
midst of so prosperous a city as Chi
cago? Why should little faithful ani
mals be persecuted by men who are
getting their bread and butter from
the industry which is supposed to
humanly dispose of these animals?
I want The Day Book to kindly
publish this. Cannot the city of Chi
cago place a humane officer in
charge of pound? These human
brutes ought to be arrested for
cruelty and given some of their own.
God does not sanction such cruel
ty to dumb, helpless animals. Why
not a fund by the city or from char
ity be set aside to be honestly dis
pensed in feeding these dogs until
humanely killed or returned to own

TAXING VACANT. Win Robt J.
King answer this: If he holds land,
and the tax on same is increased, on
whom win he shift the increase? Ob
viously he will have to pay it him
self, having no tenant, or build and
get a tenant to pay the rent, or be
sold "up for taxes. Could other own
ers of buildings raise rents while va
cant is being treated this way? If
not, then a site-rent tax cannot be
shifted to tenants. The question is
not whether the tenant will continue
to pay rent for what he occupies, for
he surely will; but whether he will
pay more rent because of an increase
of site tax laid on tre owner. C F.
Hunt, 530 Aldine av.
