THE CITY HICK FALLS FOR ANOTHER.
Human nature being human nature, the city man falls for the faker
as often as the country man-indeed, much oftener, because the vast
majority of fakers operate in the cities.
Now, there is John Muller. of Philadelphia-population sixteen or
seventeen hundred thousand. John answered one of those correspondence
school detective ads that give you lessons in plain and fancy detecting, and
in a month or two he acquired a diploma, badge, pair of handcuffs, with
instructions, and for the pre-war price of $7.50.
Thus equipped, "Detective" Muller went out in "disguise" one day,
and found a bunch of amateur baseball fellows in a park quarreling with
the empire. Muller took the field and attempted to settle the trouble ac
cording to Lesson 21, but was invited by one of the ball players to kindly
Then he produced his badge, as advised in Lesson 9. when another
ball player slammed him on the nose. Other members of the team followed
suit. The amateur detective reached for his handcuffs, but there was no
one who would wear them.
When a policeman reached the scene it was plain that something had
gone wrong tith correspondence school detecting. Finally the officer res
cued Muller from underneath the pile, and took him to a cooler for safe
keeping and renovation.
Anybody with brains can learn to be a good detective, but nobody did
it in three months and very few in three years.
NEW GAS RATl
The new gas rate whic makes an increase in our prices, is going to
rest heavily on some of those who can ill afford the increase in rate at the
present time, and even those who can afford to pay for their gas do not
relish the idea of having to pay the increase. But, are we not to blame
for this increase? Don't you think, my dear reader, that if the gas com
pany should increase their rate one hundred per gent, that it would stiqu
late us sufficiently to bring natural gas to New Orleans from the Houma
gas field, only forty-five miles away, where millions of cubic feet of gas
arq going to waste daily? Natural gas brought to New Orleans would
mean gas at thirty or forty cents per one thousand cubic feet. It would
be so cheap that we would be able to do away with coal for fuel. An ordi
Iary household would be able to light, heat and cook with this natural
elemeat at about two dollars per month. .Artificial gas at the present
wpless would cost on em average of fifteen or eighteen dollars monthly.
Pttl all, isn't it our fault that we are paying this high rate for artificial
as wha natural gas is just at our back door? Other cities have piped
itasal gas for two hundred miles and are getting the benefit of this cheap
price. Why can't New Orleans pipe this natural gas for forty-five miles?
SOB STUFF AND STONE HEART
A good friend of ours dropped in to chat with us a fgw days ago. We
talked on various subjects and of course ended by getting on to the high
seat of livirg.,

salary tar above the average. Yet, although he has held the posiltion a
Saumber of years, he does not own his own home-he is a renter. And he

bw dollars ahead his wife informs hin of some bill about to fall due, of a
new dress, a new pair of shoes, or a hat. The wife is not extravagant, and
whoe shte buys any wearing apparel it generally is necessary.
And we asked him, with as much tact as posslble, if he managed the
