I have created a new office and appointed myself to fill it. This is the office of "municipal magician." It shall be the duty of the municipal magician to exercise the arts of magic, necromancy and enchantment in oro- viding such improvements as the city shall demand. Seems strange that nobody ever thought of this before. ' You want a new union passenger station. The city needs it The trav eling public requires it. Enough said. You shall have it. The municipal magician shall provide it. Excuse ine while I say my magic words. "Ali baba, eupacific, casa caba, eye see, see endoubleyou. There you are. Isn't it a grand building? Couldn't be built under $5,000,000 if it weren't for the magic. All the latest improvements. A model of convenience, with ample accommo dations tor all. Now, what next? A city jail? Well, that's easy. The municipal magician can build that without any magic words. Just a coupla magic passes. There it is, half a block square, with mahogany desks for "Patsy" Havey and "Andy" Pattullo and a private office furnished in Circassian walnut for Steve Malonev and billiard room for the cops. It's the finest po- m-c station west or rortiana, Me. That High School. Now for a new commercial high school building. Have to use a few magic words because I want tn KniM it a whole block square. Matna, hook keen, ali ka ba. hok zo, steno, presto." oy, uut isn i mat a grand building? Peanut and lemonade rnnma fnr th boys and rooms where ice cream and chocolates are served free to the girls twice daily. Now, what next? Brick paving for all the country marls That' Just the work of a moment. Villi valli. mi Hi il aril. n m. water loo." . mere you are. Aren't they a fine sight? Not merely sixteen feet wide either, but a full thirty-two. Just as easy to make them that wide when you re using magic. Only takes three extra magic words. That's all. Whadaya Want? Now, if yotf want a tunnel dug under the river, or if you want the river dredged, or if you'd like a new city library building or a new county hospital, just speak up. These things are as easy as the rest to the munici pal magician. Ihink ot the mon we could have saved on the court house if the municipal magician had been on tne job then I Perhaps you would like something tor yourself. A new homer that takes just two magic passes. There you are. fourteen rooms, three baths hardwood floors, mahogany finish, oriental ruges, Gobelin tapestries, linoleum on the kitchen floor, dog house in the back yard and foot scraper at the front steps. How do you like it all? Ah, something is lacking. And here we learn that half the joy of life is in its struggles. Half the pleasures of having a home is in the work and planning that were required to se cure it and in the satisfaction you feel in knowing that it was your own work and planning that produced it. Therfore, Be it Resolved, That the office of munici pal magician be and the same hereby is abolished.
