We regret to state that we cannot
enthuse over the republican victory in
Chicago. From inside sources we
learn that "Bath House John" and
"Hinky Dink" were lined up against
Dunne. We have seen a letter from
Ed. Cullerton in which he says Mayor
Dunne "got what was coming to
him." 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

"Not exactly," said he. "That is, I'm
not in the business except to get peo

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.
