The Reason Why
Editors Get Rich
A child is born in the neighbor
hood the editor gives the loud
lunged youngster and the happy
parents a send off and gets $00.00.
It is christened and the minister
gets $5 and the editor gets $00.00.
The editor blushes and tells a story
about the beautiful and accomplish
ed bride. The minister gets $10
and a piece of cake and the editor
gets $00.00. In the course of time
she dies the doctor gets from $15
to $100, the minister perhaps gets
again $5, the undertaker gets from
$75 to $200, the editor prints an
obituary two columns and gets
$00.00. No wonder so many
country editors get rich. Have

have large clothes closets and are easily ventilated.

The use of cocaine and tobacco
narcotics was begun by the aborigines

derivative of cocoa. Natives mixed
it with dried cocoa leaves, lime or oth

was chewed by the natives along the
west coast of South America. The
practice of mixing alkalis with narcot
ics was also practiced by tobacco
chewers in sections adjoining the
"cocoa chewers" land. Then it sud

Siow this happened is a puzzling eth

Taking snuff was correlated with
the chewing habit. Smoking was the
most widely distributed method of us
