This evident coalition of Busse with the powers of evil in Chicago bodes no good for the new administra tion. In politics especially, the stream does not rise higher than its source. As to the traction question, the street railroads have simply tired the people out, just as they do liti gants. tired them until they have been ready to accept a compromise which we fear they will regret. The fact that the railroad companies want edit was a sufficient reason for vot ing against it. We suppose that be cause Busse sails under the repuulican banner we should be rejoiced, but under the circumstances the Review rooster refuses to come out of that deep seclusion which he sought last fall when the returns from Crawford county &ame in.

GHIOAGOAN'S RECIPE FOE OPTIMISM Charlea E. Tomlinaon, Who Is Pay ing All Expeniei of Spreading Ilia Apple Propaganda, Say. Apples Are God'a Own Medicine and Clalma Thonaanda Have Been Helped by Them—Wants Claba Founded. Charles E. Tomlinson, a wealthy young Chlcagoan, who for a week ex pounded the "apple club" idea" in New York, left town recently for Boston, where be Intended to spring apples and optimism on the Hub. Before de parting he declared at his hotel that the literature he has sent out regarding his particular hobby, together with his personal efforts, has already gained 1,000 new members in the New York city "orchard" for the Apple Club of America, which had its inception in the Windy City, where he belongs, says the New York Times. To be an applelte you must either have or acquire an appetite for apples, for you must first take a solemn oath to assimilate at least one apple a day. You also have to pledge yourself to urge all your friends to join the city or village "orchard" to which you have sworn allegiance. Tomlinson, leading spirit of the Ap ple club, is a normal looking man of thirty or so, who wears good clothes and whose present mission in life Is to talk apples and the sure benefits to be derived from their consumption. If eating one apple a day will make a person healthy Tomlinson's ruddy cheeks and stalwart frame would indi cate that his dally allowance' Is at least three pippins. When he received Interviewers he at once extended to them hospitality in the shape of a Maid en's Blush apiece. "May I ask, Mr. Tomlinson, if you are in the apple business?" politely in quired one reporter. Mr. Tomlinson smiled. "Not exactly," said he. "That is, I'm not in the business except to get peo ple to eat apples for their own good, you know. Apples are God's own medi cine. You'd be surprised to know how much good tlier^ is tied up inside an apple. I have come to realize it, and while traveling,over the world on a pleasure trip I nni now tnaking I 13 am going to send out thousands of circu lars about apples and do all the talk ing for tlioni I can." Mr. Tomlinson said he was paying all the expenses of spreading the apple propaganda to the benighted and he had derived a lot of fun out of his apple apostleshlp. "People -sometimes look at me and listen to me as though they thought me a trifle dippy in the upper story," he observed thoughtfully. "Sometimes, in fact, I almost think so myself, but honestly I'm not. [With great frank ness.] I'll only confess to a mania for apples and setting folks to eat them regularly. I'd like to have you chaps become converts and help the good thing along among your friends. "Apples breed optimism, energy, cheerfulness and ambition. There's no mistaking it. You have lan apple ana lyzed by a chemist some day and find out what it contains. You'll be move interested if you find o^it for your self. Ask any physician what he thinks aboiit apples «ns a food. Ask any member of the Apple Club of America." "Are dried apples equally good?" interrupted one of the interviewers. "Nnw," said Mr. Tomlinson. with great disgust. "They won't do. You've rat to eat the original fruit one good WITH A I full Line of Implements fresh specimen a day at least, and you've got to stick to it. I want to say, too, that lemons are barred." "Do you have to have faith in the ap ple when you eat "it?" was inquired. "Not necessarily," said the apple's advocate, in no wit embarrassed, "al though that may possibly help some in the ease of a confirmed groucher who wants to get cured. But even without faith I've known of old dyspeptic bach elors, victims of an epicurean existence, who were cured of their tantrums through eating apples regularly. Ap ples cure the worst cases of pessimism that ever were. It don't matter wheth er you believe in1em or not."., Mr. Tomlinson's circulars say: APPLE CLUB OF AMERICA. The Rookery, Chicago. Dear Friend—You are hereby invited to join the Apple Ciub of America and to share in its many benefits. It will cost you nothing to Join, and there are no dues. Few people apparently know the sover eign virtues of apples. One eaten daily Is almost a guarantee of good health to the normal person if he obeys the simple rules of life. One apple eaten dally will positively make you a cheerful optimist. The apple is one of Mother Nature's own medicines. The only requirements for membership in the Apple Club of Amer ica are that you solemnly promise your self to eat at least one fresh, ripe apple every day and that you try to get all your friends to take this pledge. The apple club idea originated in Chi cago and has proved a great success. Branches of the club, known as orchards, have been formed in several western cities. Some of the clubs hold regular meetings, and while apples are eaten and sweet cider drunk at these social gather ings topics of the day are discussed. Ap ple buttons are now worn by hundreds of people In Chicago. The Apple Club of America hopes to gain a quarter of a million members In New York city during the coming year. If you will try the apple idea for one week you will take the pledge and be come its ardent supporter. CHARLES EDMUND TOMLINSON. The Flrat Quarrel. Adam—It's all off. Goodby forever!
