THE JINKYAKDS AND THEIR I'liACK. The junk yard like anything ?!se should have its place in a city. In the light that it is in a sense a ne cessary evil, it should not be allowed In the business or residence section. 't i 01 necessity unsigntiy. ana sdouio. , not permitted to mar the appear- , ance of tie prominent localities. Even when surrounded by high board fences Junk yards are unsightly. There exists in Rock Island a differ ence of opinion as to the propriety of permitting the Brady Junk yard to be planted Immediately off the busi ness district, a block distant from Ppencer square and directly opposite thp Industrial home building, and in what is to be the future wholesale district of the city, regardless of what it is today. People who protest against the lo- cation of junk yards In the Immediate ' proximity to their homes or places of j bi!slr.f-ss are not to be blamed. Tae : effect is caTjagin:; and undesirable. There should be some place more ; removed from either the business or residence district and where there is 'PSS legitimate reason for complaint. . ! ATTKMPTIXG TO MAKE CAPITAL ' OCT OF ACRIMK.

"How absurd!"

I believe, if the truth were Known, she is not capable of holding down a $6-a-week job. I have as ; much education as she has, and I am in business for myself. But 1 do not think that girls who are struggling: fcr a living or who did not have the ' chance of good schooling. 6hould be I compelled to take talk from anyone . like that. I think the girl who said that is simply foolish, but there ought to be some way of showing such girls ; how wrong and unkind they are. It does seem to obad that because i one girl is fortunately placed and that not through any particular merit of her own she should feel herself so superior to those whose benefits are' less and who must struggle for a livelihood. The shop girl's emotions are just as sacred to her as are those of the mgner urea girls; ner love anair is sweet and tender, her lover as well worth loving, and her inner life as ! beautiful even though to outward j view it must present many sordid de tails. rne average fehon girl is as modest. as reluctant to have her private life and sentiments probed as any society girl of high degree In fact.
