to sluggish bowels and torpid liver.

WHO IS VELVET JOE?
Have You Made Your Guess as to
Identity of the Philosopher?
"Who is Velvet Joe?"
" That is a question which bids fair
to rank with the historic ones con
cerning the exact age of Ann and
"Who struck Billy Patterson?'
Since the philosophical sayings and
verse from the pen of the sunny to
bacco grower and thinker from Ken
tucky first appeared in the news
papers and maanines, rumors have
been rife as to his identity.. Several
professional humorists have already
pleaded "not guilty" to the charse
of being "alias Velvet Joe." And
still, from out behind impenetrable
mystery flashes Velvet Joe's cherry
wit and tender sentiment, singing
the praises of the ogod tobacco he
grows in old "Kaintueky."
But what matter who Joe Is. as
long as his smiling face greets us as
we open our morning papers, as long
as his cheery "Good Evenin' " Is , a
feature of the evening editions?
Who is Velvet Joe?
Why, don't you know? He's the
patron saint of pipe smokers. He
takes the place of old Santa Claus for
those of us who have put on long
pants and have to sliave.
He's the friend who visits us by
our firesides, in our shops and offices,
telling us to light up our pipes and
remember that clouds have silver lin
ings and that if it didn't rain there.d
never be any rainbows with pots of
gold at the end of them. .
He la the sort of optimist yoji And
so often among men who love their
pipes, and draw from them the sunny
contentment that nuture Instills into
the mellow Burley leaf.
Who is Velvet Joe?
Ask the man, who runs the cigar
stand on the comer. He will say:
"Oh, he's a friend of mine that s
helping me sell Velvet Smoking To
bacco. He's one of those cheerful
fellows that always has time to be
kind and courteous and smiling even
when he's talking business.
"I wish there were more like him. '
So what does it matter what Vel
vet Joe's last name is? We know his
face and we know his sentiments, but
Now this is merely a suggestion.

And if these inquisitive ones should
run across a gentleman with a cheery
disposition nnd a drooping white mus

say that Velvet Joe will continue . to
