"When are you coming out to spend Sunday with us?"
"Just as soon aa you have gotten so used te your new house that
you dent feel impelled to show it to anybody."
W. .1. Sullivan, in speaking of the
park bond issue today, said:
"You can quote me as being heart
nnd soul for the proposed park bond
issue. I believe that we need them
and this I consider an opportune
time at which to secure our parks
and playgrounds.
"We have remained commercial
too long and we have neglected our
civic development while our sister
cities have forged ahead. We are
spending money for schools, their
teachers and equipment and we are
giving our children the best educa
tion possible. We want this, and no
one would have it any different,
hut 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, but 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 messes and better civic
After an investigation of the
charges made against Superintend
ent C. D. Harmon of the crematory
department, the hoard of public
works 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 tbe
heard of public works, when he
learned that Harmon was feeding
bis 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*
'o-npprfjpriate the horse feed.
JSo the promised ructjpn in £he
crematory department i», appar
ently, quieted for the present.

the entitled to representation on
the board of park
and the announcement by Mayoi'
Pratt that he will fill the existing
vacancy with a union labor man is
welcome news. It is only what we
deserve, and all we now ask is that
his choice be 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
against his best Interests. His pro
portion of the tax burden will be
very small, and as the expenditure
of 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 that it will be handled in a
business way."

Little Ethel had put in a strenu
ous day and she was a tired Kirl
when the time otune for her to be
tucked in her bed. She stumbled
through the words awkwardly when
she said her little prayer and kissed
her mama good night. Then she
was wide awake in an instant and
the look of contrition en her fact
was touching to behold.
"Oh. Ix)rd!" she said in an awe
stricken tone, "I forgot to ask you
to bless grandma." The eyelids
were again growing heavy but she
drowsily went on: 'Wouldn't that
rasp you."
The real estate agent laughed
when he read In The Press last
night the statement made by Jur
tice of the Peace Hyde in speaking
of mining stocks.
• "Serves those fellows right," he
said. "Some of the men engaged in
selling mining stocks are bright,
and 1 am sure that most of them
believe in tbe propositions they are
handling. ' Prut why can't they take
up some business where they can be
absolutely honest?"
"What business would you sug
gest that they engage in, Jim?"
Queried a companion.
"Blamed'if t know," said Jim. "If
the field wasn't so everlastingly
overcrowded I am sure they could
do well in the real estate business."
And then Jim wondered why
everybody laughed.

Xoontz arrived
here by ralf from
Monroe, La., in
the capacity of
c. o. d freight.
He had been con
signed to a local
bank and was
delivered to the
bank instead of
to his mother,
who cailed 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 home.
The cause of this unusual pro
ceeding was that Arthur had been
staying at Monroe some months
and a board bill had run up. With
the 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
nuts and bananas and enjoyed the
experience of being shipped.

Lee Forte. E2017 Columbia ave
nue, applied to the prosecuting at
torney's office this morning for a
warrant, for the arrest of N. J.
Tubbs, 0." 103 Napa street, for an
assault on the 10-year-old eon of
the complainant.
According to the story told by
Force to the state's attorney the af
fair caused a lot of excitement in
the region of the Cannondale school
yesterday afternoon, after school
hours. The Force boy and a son
of Tubbs were engaged in a Jef
! fries-Johnson struggle on the
green, surrounded by about 50
cheering boys and girls.
It is charged that the Force boy
was getting the better of the match,
when the father of the Tubbu boy
appeared on the scene. The elder
Tubbs, so Force told the officials,
then assaulted the Force boy and
after knocking him down,twice,
grabbed him by the neck and
dragged him to his home, nearly
half a mile distant.
Bids for sewers, paving, side
walks and street grading estimated
at $90,140 were opened by the

"isn't ten cents a quart for milk rather high?" \
"Waal, fnAmi, we can't feed our cows on cold storage &rass."
Dr. S. R. Nelson, state veterinar
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
has attended a night meeting since
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.
