AINT NATURE WONDERFUL!
. N' Yawk.
tf' Yawk is a city -with 5,0u0,000
people packed in closer than a wom-
-an's foot in a dancing pump and
. 4,999,900 of the inhabitants came
., from somewhere' else.
Everybody x that visits N' Yawk
chirps, "It's a great place, but I
wouldn't want to live there."
There is a great deal of blowing up
going on in building the subways but
the real blowing up that has much
shade on the-subway blasts is to hear
the N' Yawkers boosting the burg to
Broadway is a street of theaters,
safes and electric signs. The N'
Yawkers walk up and down the gay
way reading the signs and the visit
ors take in the shows and cafes.
Fifth avenge is a street set aside
by the city for taking walking sticks
out for an airing. The saloons are
closed on Sunday. The front door is
locked but the back" door is open, but
even at that you don't stand much
chance .of getting in unless you've
got a friend up at the head of the pro
cession who can get it for you.
N' Yawk is THE place, if you don't
believe us7ask any N' Yawker.

have pinned one to the earth."
The lady excused him. '
