CONCERNING THE PAPERS.
I submit the following:
The Tribune has its qualities,
The Herald has its fame,
'The Examiner has its sporting sheet,
The American has its name.
The Journal should be read always;
Through the News I always look,
But the paper that I value most
Of all is The Day Book.
Hoping this is worthy of publica

A NEW DEAL. A Catholic denies
in The Day Book what we have
thought was history: St Bartholo
mew's day, etc. Now let us be good
Christians and begin new, with a
quotation from a pope every day,
starting with this from Leo XIII, en
cyclical of 1891; Dec. 25th:
"This repoblic, having seized upon
the lands discovered by Christopher
Columbus, a Catholic, and usurped
the authority and jurisdiction of the
Supreme Head of the Church, the
United States is filled with obscure
Let our friend pass on the truth of
this, since he claims to be a judge of
history and fact for if the claim of
jurisdiction is just most of us will
nave to move or join. C. H.
HOW THE SPIDER SPINS HIS
WEB. Tell me something about the
way a spider builds his web. Where
does the silk he uses come from?
M. E. C.
The spider is his own silk maker.
In the spider's body there are "many
tiny openings, so small you cannot
see them without a microscope, and
out of these he draws fine silk
threads. As the threads leave these
openings they form into a rope 100
threads make a rope about as thick
as a single hair on your head.
Sometimes the spider lets this rope
float away from his body and the
wind 'fastens it to a twig or leat-r
to a corner of the "pantry shelf, but
sometimes he fastens it himself.
When the ends of the rope are secur
ed the spider spins out at least 20
more silk threads and fastens these
at different points, but brings them
all to a central point which is to be
the middle of the web. Around these
cross ropes he spins threads untfl a
web strong enough to hold even the
biggest flies is finished.
THE REDLIGHT. I read a piece
in The Day Book that the redligbt
ought to be closed. When I was a
boy those kind of places were run
ning wide open and saloons were open
all night. And there were not half
as many murders as there are today,
and those days your mother, sisters
or your wife could go but any time of
night A. R.
