AT LEAST TWO YEARS

The days are growing closer
When your garden will show signs
Of budding bits of foodstuffs
And climbing flower vines.
You'll saunter out to sprinkle
All the growing little rows;
And you'll find the water merely ,
Dribbles from your garden hose.
P. S. Complaints from all over
town say more water pressure is
needed in Chicago.

On a $30,000 piece of property at
91st and Calumet river a $25,000
market was erected in 1915 through,
influence of labor organizations and
social workers of the district.
With a population of 100,000 with
in less than a mile and rail and wa
ter connections, this structure stands
'It is remaining idle and the city
has not established a municipal mar
ket there because the labor organiza
tions, the women's clubs and the em
ployes of the great industries out
there are less influential with the
city officials than the grocers, butch
ers and produce men," Alderman
James Lawley, chairman of commis
sion which recommended building
market, said yesterday.
There is real need for the public
market in South Chicago. It is a
home of working people.
Mayor Thompson subpoenaed to
appear in court and explain why he
refused Edw. Odell license to run sa
loon at 1364 W. Madison.
Generally fair today and tomor
row. Cooler today. Fresh northwest
