BEST NEWSPAPER BARGAIN: DAIL V AND, SUNDA V PRESS, 10 CENTS WEEK--'THE PAPER THA T DARES PRINT THE NEWS'
A WAITING POLICY.
"When are you coming out to spend Sunday with us?"
"Just as soon as you have gotten so used to your new noise th,it
don't feel impelled to show it to anybody."
URGES LABOR TO VOTE
FOR THE PARK BONDS
TV. .1. Sullivan, in speaking of the
park bond issue today, said:
"You can quote me as being heart
and soul for the proposed park bond
issue. 1 believe that we need them
and this 1 consider an opportune
time at which to secure our parks
and playgrounds.
"We have remained commercial
too long and we have neclected our
civic development while our sister
cities have forced ahead. We are
spending money for schools, their
teachers and equipment and we arc
giving our children the best educa
tion possible. We want this, and no
one would have it any different,
but healthy brains require healthy
bodies, and we must admit that we
have not done our duty in the latter
respect. Healthy bodies are not
grown on dirty streets and vacant
lots. We know this and have known
it for some time, hut have let mat
ters slide. Now we have an oppor
tunity to redeem ourselves and we
should do so.
"As for organized labor, it has
always stood for any and all things
which mean better health and com
fort for the masses and better civic
BOARD HUSHES
HARMON CASE
After an investigation of the
charges made against Superintend
ent C. D. Harmon of the crematory
department, the board of public
WOfka finds that he removed a
quantity of horse feed to his own
home with the consent of the board.
The real facts in the case are
that one of the members of the
board of public works, when he
learned that Harmon was feeding
his driving horse at the "public
crib" grew very indignant and gave
out the information that led to the
charges being filed on the floor of
the city council.
Later the city administration
concluded that it already had more
than its share of scandals and call
ed in the objecting members of the
board and told him to "straighten
out this Harmon affair." The mat
ter was promptly "straightened
out" by a report being filed that
Harmon had been given permission
lo appropriate the horse feed.
So the promised ruction in the
crematory department is, appar
ently, quieted for the present.

the board of park commissioners
and the announcement by Mayor
Pratt that he will fill the existing
vacancy with a union labor man is
; welcome news It is only w hat we
deserve, and all we now ask is that
! his choice lie a careful one.
"The laboring man has the bal
ance of power in the vote on the
park bond issue and if he casts his
; vote against it he casts a Vote
j against his best interests. His pro
portion of the tax burden will be
, very small, and as the expenditure
lof the money will be entirely in the
hands of the park board, and not
connected with the other branches
of the city government, he is as
sured thai it will be handled in a
I business way."

Little Ethel had put in ;i stremi

whin the time came for her to be
tucked in her bed. She btumbled
through the words awkwardly when
she said her little prayer and kissed
her mama good night. Then she

the look of contrition on her face
was touching to behold,
"Oh. Lord!" she said in an awe
stricken tone. "1 forgot to ask you
to bless grandma." Th< eyelids

drowsily went on: "Wouldn't lhat

"Serves those fellows right," he

"What business would you sug

BOY RECEIVED ON
A BILL OF LADING
. LOUIS, April
29. — Arthur
KoODtl arrived
here by rail from
Monroe. La., in
the capacity of
c. o. d freight,
j He had been con
sign* d to a local
Jbank and was
delivered to the
bank instead of
to his mother,
'■ who called for him at the union sta
tion. She had to take up the bill of
lading with cash at the bank, for
those were the conditions under
which he had been sent hoinp.
The cause of this unusual pro
ceeding was that Arthur had been
staying at Monroe some months
anil a board bill had run up, With
'he safe delivery of the boy the
parents were satisfied and settled
the bill, remitting through the bank.
The boy behaved differently from
other freight on the train. He rode
in a passenger coach and ate pea
nins and bananas and enjoyed the
experience of being shipped.
Watch for the comet. It will be
visible to the naked eye tomorrow

ian, advocated the use of pure milk
at the night session of the state
tuberculosis exhibit last night, and
his remarks were listened to with
Interest by the largest crowd that

the opening of the exhibit. He said
that to get good milk it was neces
sary to pay a good price and that
dairymen were not making any
more money now than when milk
was selling at five cents per quart,
owing to the increase in wages and
the price of feed.
School sanitation and ventilation
