The same is applicable to the recent Supreme Court decision which was handed down the other day, holding that the abatement law and the Kate Adams law were both constitutional, which were enacted by the last General Assembly of Illinois. The element of people who are to re joice over this act of the Legislature and the upholding of this law by our Supreme Court of Illinois, is the church-going population of the city of Chicago, as well as the decent ele ment which objects to living in a flat or block with prostitutes and their brazen defiance of decency in solicit ing and roping men right in front of respectable people, and at the church doors where men and women are at tending for the glory of God. In the future a landlord has got to be as careful about the character of the tenants whom he rents to as he is about their references from their pre vious agent as to their promptness in paying their rent where they formerly lived and their receipts for the whole period they occupied the previous landlord’s premises. The law gives the city the power to close their prem | ises for the period of one year and makes the owner subject to a heavy penalty should he knowingly or after he has been reliably informed, to rent his property for the purpose of pros I titution. The prayers of the righteous among the praying people have been answered. HOW ABOUT RE-ELECTION.

DUNNE, Democratic Candidate for Re-election for Governor of the State of Illinois, Nov. 7, 1916. Needed Law. That dear young mother down the street a piece came to us almost in tears yesterday and asked us if we wouldn’t use our influence for the im mediate enactment of a law limiting grandmothers to an eight-hour day, ex plaining that then by working all night with the baby she might undo the spoiling done in the course of the time when she had no control over her child. —Columbus (O.) Journal. The Tongue and Typhus. According to P. Remlinger, quoted in the Journal of the American Med ical Association, an infallible method of telling whether a patient has typhoid (or paratyphoid) or the much more serious typhus, is to ask him to “put out your tongue.” The typhoid or paratyphoid patient does it without effort, but if he has typhus he can not get it beyond his teeth. THE WOMAN IN THE CAMPAIGN. We are glad that the women have had an opportunity of taking an ac tive part in the campaigns of the two great political parties of the country; they wili be well versed in the tricks and unreliability of the men and their methods of success, and shortcomings of tne men in the management of po litical affairs. They are very unrelia ble and the ladies, if they have not al ready found it out, will before all of the jobs are distributed after the cam paign is over. TRIBUTE TO JANE AUSTEN Why the Writer Considers Her to Have Been a Greater Artist Than George Sand. In the history of literature George Sand is the great example of a woman who won success by the masculine so lution of detachment from experience, and Jane Austen, the- great example of a woman who won success by the feminine solution of identification with her own dailyness. I am inclined to think the latter by far the greater artist, just as I am inclined to think that in literature; rather than in any other form of men tal activity will always be found woman’s highest intellectual achieve ment, for the simple reason that wom an’s genius consists in personality, and for the expression of personality words are the only adequate medium. Jane Austen’s example is the great en couragement for the woman who wishes to write without ceasing to be a simple everyday woman. Jane Austen was capable of a de tachment that enabled her to write books that give no hint of the thun der of the Napoleonic wars even \vhen she had two brothers on fighting ships. She was capable of an identification with her surroundings that enabled her to write novels of universal hu manity and eternal artistry and to keep right on being everybody’s aunt at the same time. She was sane and humorous in her novels because she was sane and hu morous out of them. She achieved fame because she had first achieved personality. Still, her fame is only a thin, frail fire set beside the effulgence of a dozen men of her time. Yet, I would rather have been Jane Austen than Shelley or Wordsworth or Keats.— Winifred Kirkland, in Atlantic Monthly. Real Chinese Dragon. That dragon monster of which the Chinese are so fond did actually exist, according to a Shanghai correspondent of the London Times. It is known that reptiles existed, very similar to the favorite pictured dragons, and there is reason to believe that some measured as long as GO feet. My Friend. My friend is constant, like that high star, and though distance and days come between us, as do clouds between it and me, I know my friend is still there, shining with the same clear, steady light, and when the distance and days are melted away, I shall find it so.—Leigh Mitchell Hodges. HON. OSCAR HEBEL. Republican Candidate for Judge of the Superior Court of Cook County. Mr. Hebei is one of Illinois’ famous lawyers, as well as being sound, fair and impartial on all questions which would necessarily come before him in a judicial way. The colored people should not fail to vote for Mr. Oscar Hebei on Tuesday, November 7. The Illinois Idea makes a special request in electing this native Chicagoan as one of our judges of Cook county. HON. HOSEA WELLS. Candidate for re-election, is due to be returned to his present seat in the Municipal Court which he has so long honored and given justice to all who sought a remedy at his hands accord ing to equity and common law. No judge upon the bench is more learned in the law than is this brave, fearless and splendid character, Judge Hosea A. Wells. Vote for him Tuesday, Nov. 7. MRS. J. T. BRAZELTON EN TERTAINED. Chattanooga, Tenn., Oct. 24, 1916. Mrs. Hattie Hanna of 1008 Newell avenue had as her guest this week Mrs. T. J. Brazelton of 1546 E. 53d street, Chicago, 111., and sister, Mrs. E. A.
