\ How Long Is j
\ Life Here? j
J Since .1865 eleven years have been added to the average life of j
3 the people of New York City,, says Dr. Copeland, New York's Commis- >
J sioner of Health. Think of it! A gain of eleven yeas in fifty-seven. >
jjj Eleven more years to live—and better, happier years, too.
Thinking of that, we wonder how many years have been added te /
J the average life In this community of ours? There has been a great 5
* gain, of course. And the gain is in proportion to improved sanitation.
Sanitation—plumbing, if you please—is the foundation of length- 5
£ ened years and healthful, happy living. To live long, keep young and £
w get the most out of life a community must be well plumbed. This is a J
j fact that has been proved a million times.
I In that delightful booklet, “The Story of the. Bath,*' are these £
J words: “We ought to live to be a hundred, and we will when we know 5
f how to live.** That is as true as gospel. When our community is 100 J
f per cent sanitary—when there is a bathroom in every home, and all £
] the family use it regularly-—old age, sickness and death will not be In j
{ a hurry to tag us. '([

AND THE other day

THE COLORED girl’s lap

FOR MY spurs
TO HELP hold
A DIGNIFIED position

OVER THe shoulder
OF THE man
WITH THE green tie
* •
JUST TO see
WHAT ALL the news was
IN THE paper
HE SO carefully studied *
• •
AND ALMOST slapped
MY DARK skinned neighbor
• *
ON THE knee
• •
IN MY excitement
• •
UPON DISCOVERING
THE PAPER he read
TO BE none other than
THE CODY Enterprise
AND NEARLY slapped
HER OTHER knee

WHEN HE reached

THE BACK page
AND ACTUALLY
SEEMED TO be reading
THIS VERY column
AND ABOUT that time
HE CAUGHT me watching
• •
AND LAUGHED with me
OVER SOMETHING silly
Concerning Aggie Chamberlin
OR SOMEONE
AND HE told me
THAT FOR a year
HE'D SUBSCRIBED
TO THIS western thriller
AND BELIEVED it to be
THE BEST and most original
WEEKLY IN the world
AND I said he was
PUTTING IT mildly
AND WANTED to boast
THAT AT the time

I HAPPENED to be
TRYING TO hold down
THE JOB of editor

OF THIS very sheet
BUT HE reached his station
BEFORE I said a mouthful
AND AWAY he went
THI SLITTLE man
WITH THE Enterprise
FAITHFULLY tucked
• •
ON HIS hip
• •
AND HIS green tie
WHERE THE chicken
* •
GOT THE axe
AND THAT’S all
I KNOW about him
SO MUCH for that.
