"Many a time," said a policeman in the southern part of the city, "when arresting men, especially intoxicated men, I have been told by my prisoner that he was a taxpayer and that he helped pay my wages. "I always regarded this sort of back talk as merely drunken insolence, and never paid much attention to it until about a year ago, when I bought a house and lot and became myself a taxpayer. I had always rented be fore and never gave a thought to taxes, but as sqon as I moved into my own house I began to appreciate the leelings of the men who resented ar rest because they paid taxes. There is certainly a considerable addition to the dignity of the man who helps sup port the government. He feels a de gree of responsibility that a renter or roomer never understands, and my idea Is that every man In the country ought to become a taxpayer as soon as he can, and the mere fact that he does help to support the government and bears his share of the expense, makes him a better citizen. Habitu al criminals, excepting, of course, high financiers, are rarely taxpayers. They know they may have to run any day and perhaps never come back, so they do not buy real estate, but are roomers and lodgers all their lives." St. Louis Globe-Democrat. No Mustaches in Alaska. Mustaches are not worn by men ex posed to the severity of an Alaskan winter. They wear full beards to pro tect the throat and face, but keep the upper lip clean shaven. The moisture from the breath congeals so quickly that a mustache becomes imbedded in a solid cake of ice, and the face is frozen in a short time. Prolific Apple T-ee. What is reported to be the largest apple tree in the United States is at Southington, Conn. It yields 50 bushels. Content to Do Little. Let us be content to do little, if God sets us at little tasks. It is but pride and self-will which says: "Give me something huge to fight, and I should enjoy that; but why make me sweep the dust?" Charles Kinsley. The Rounder Says AVhat's la a earner Well, almost anything that Frank Malo, the engineer at the Central Are station, cares to make of It. What's in a name? There Is enough in the names of the Chicago National league players to make them out champions of the world. It's a new way of figuring the dope and every fan in Hammond whose heart is with the Cubs ought to grab onto the dope before the author has It copyrighted. By the same token that he figures the Cubs to be the world's champions, he figures out that there is no chance for the Sox as champions. He can't find an X in their name, and that settles it for them along the newest line of dope. Malo worked out the combination this morning as the result of an argument down at the fire station. This is the result after an hour's work: Chance ne Uer reul Bach ever 3 ho Ward br Own lundg Ren s Lagie Durbin she Ckard Hoffman Zimmerm An Marshall Pfiester t Inker Overall kli Ng Steinfeldt ii-uir, whose name appears in the word Cubs, is really a Highlander, but is with the Cubs now on a try-out. Chance believing the southpaw to be a wonderful pitcher. . He will in all prob ability sign up with the Cubs. Have yon ever noticed that an um brella man never is seen on the street except when it is raining or about to rain. Like a tree toad you never hear his croak until there Is a sign that the skies are in trouble. The great question which has been In the minds of the people of Hammond for the past two months has not been one as to whether Taft or Bryan will be elected, but "Where has the um brella man been?" Yesterday when it sprinkling a lean gaunt Individual in rags came from somewhere and began yelling "umbrel las to mend." He walked up and down the street for a time and then disap peared. No one seemed to know where he had gone. Twenty minutes later the sun came out from behind the clouds and the rain was over. What became of the umbrella man? The Joke Is on Nick Schneider. The hand organ man hit town at the same time the umbrella man came around. He started to playing In front of Adam Stamm's barber shop and pool room. Some one paid him 10 cents to compete with the phonograph In Riley's five cent theater. The phonograph won in a walk and Riley sent the organist over to Lockie Simpson's barber shop with a commision to play 10 cents' worth. The shop was cleaned out long be fore "My Bonnie Lies Over the Ocean," was half ground out. Then some one got a bright idea and paid the "maka ce music" man a half dollar to play an hour In front of Nick Schneider's sa loon. Schneider thought some one had started a riot in a German band and came out to see what was the matter. He couldn't kick the poor old man off the sidewalk and he had to stand for it so he made the best of a bad job and brought a chair out for the old man so that he could be more comfortable. Between three and four o'clock was the longest hour that States street has ever known. Finally the old man got tired and went over to the Chinaman's and bought a steak smothered in mush rooms, a piece of watermelon and then bought a beer at the nearest saloon to wash it down. And he didn't buy the beer at Nick Schneider's either. 4 The Tapper family lot in Oak Hill cemetery is to contain one of the finest NOTICE TO ADVERTISERS.

He has lined up with the state board of health In its efforts to purify the drinking water of Ham mond. The Hammond druggist bit off and swallowed a big chunk of pessimism this morning when he thought of the hundreds of people Who wash their feet in his drinking water at the lake front every night. "And Just think," said Uncle Henry, "thos bathers go out in the water for five or six hundred feet and the intake through which the city of Hammond gets its water supply is only 1,400 to 1,500 feet out in the lake." "It Is Just as bad as drinking water out of a big bath tub after a man has finished," said Bicknell in disgust. "You can take your pick." "They make us druggists put up a sign stating that we are putting 1.100 of 1 per cent of benzoate of soda in our fruit preserves when every doctor knows that a person can take several grains of that stuff without injury and yet they let 500 people polute our H20."
