New York state now h«s no law against bootleggers or hootch telling of any kind. If New York now had a prohibition Jaw. with 17.000 policemen In Greater New York, the 27,000 speakeasies could lx» put out of buslneAS in 4fl noun. Their would be one policeman to each two ?-j>erikcn.' ; .ies and it would not take long to get i Id of them ifytlic officials M desired. As a matter pf fact it Is quite generally understood that She Tamrnnny system In control of New .York makes it the busfnesn of the police to keep track of bootleggers and tpeakcar.icfi and compel them to pay a cei'- tain .sum'cru'h month for protection. That uus the system on which Tammany was built and that .;-ystem has not been discontinued, so far os rr|x>rt«t. OI course the charge will be made that the government poisoned the alcohol that \vas dispensed. For twenty years past the government has been denaturing all alcohol that is legally .sold for mechanical purposes. This alcohol, however, is "withdrawn for 'mechanical purposes and turned over to bootleggers, who split it forty ways, doctoring with colorins matters of various kinds, and In many Instances these concoctions bring death to those who drink the poisoned goods. The government is in no sense responsible for any of these poison nlcohol deaths. So far as the government is concerned, it has been denaturing alcohol for twenty years, long before prohibition was enacted, and it has continued along the same lines since. The attacks on the government made by the wet oincial-s, who refuse to enforce the laws, who help repeal them rather than enforce them, is characteristic of the attitude and unfairness oi officials of the Mayor Walker type in every Inrpe city in the country almoit without exception, whether Democratic or Republican. Disasters Sometimes Beneficial When the great Chicago fire occurred fifty-seven years ago. it was considered a disaster, the greatest that had ever overtaken any city in the United States. Two hundred live:.; were lost and two hundred million dollars in property destroyed, Tiio lire was spectacular, dramatic, terrible Yet the fact remains that H was a blessing in disguise, and that Chicago rebuilt on a scale ;-o far nhend of the old Chicago that the uatn couid be seen and measured by everybody who viMt-.-ri the new city erected on the ashes of the o!d. While the calamity was of world wide interest the rebuilding has been of world wide concern. Physically Chicago stands as one of the greatest cities in the world with prospects of doubling and trebling in the utst few generation. 1 *. When the great earthquake and the tremendous fire tlmt swept San Francisco al- Juqst -off-tlie- -ttup-a-«euoraUo» - o? two ago was broadcasted over the telegraph wires and published in the newspapers of the country it seemed utterly impossible that the city could f-vt-r come back. Bui the Ban Francisco of today i.s its tar ahead o£ the old San Francisco ab tlit new Chit-ego today is ahead of the old Chicago. Both of these great calamities brought sorrow and sympathy and cash in tremendous sums from the people of the whole country to ht-ip take care of tiie homeless and {.uttering. But even at that the Ban Francisco lire v,'us a blewdug just the banie as the Chicago lire in the fact that the rebuilt city is li*r ahead of what the city would have bten i! no lire liad occurred.

A LITTLE ABOUT EVERYTHING (Robert Quillrn) Another thing. Noin the steady irnprove- nT-nt. and expansion of th" installment plan under Republican administration. It's easy to tell tho*e who deserve charity. Thry accept ns, little ns they can. Philndrlphla wouldn't tolerate the awful Tammany tiger. Bhc prefers blind tigers.

And you can't Icll by the nose elevation In the back seat how much the little man in the front seat owes the grrocer, • It pays to remain upright. A pedestrian never is out of luck until he's horizontal. A homely girl has one advantage. She can get mad without looking much worse. "At forty a man has become what he will be." Ruts I Many a mnn becomes a grandfather after that. The chief trouble with America is the conviction that dishonor on your side Is excusable. A hick town Is a place where nil movements to Improve things are led by the" womeit, 60 far the chief objection 'to women in politics Is that , the. opposition doesn't feel free to bawl them out. There's a vaccine to keep dogs from going mad, but a man miist be born with the quality that prevents political rabies. Pay workers very little and keep them poor while you make profit enough to relieve their &ufTering. That's phllanttiropy. Another advantage In going to church: You needn't spend Monday preparing an alibi. Correct this sentence: "We quarrel at times." said the wife, "but never as a result SIDETALKS WHICH WAY DO YOU LIKE? (Ruth Cameron) "Oh, no dcn't pay me. ..I'll use your telephone some time when mine is out of order." i had used a neighbor's telephone when mine was out of commission and had made calls to the extent oi 35 cents. Not having the change I took oiy a dollar and asked her the change It took out a dollar and asked her Wheteat she waved u away as hereinbefore described. And when I insisted she remained so embarrassingly Hrm that I had to give in. Was I glad to get my telephone calls for - nothing?- -No7T"hal« T d a. ........... Maybe it's something to do with my New England Scotch ancestry. 1 suppose it could be blamed for most anything— but however it Is I hate that way of doing things. I love tiefinit« payments'for definite things. No Loopholes For Recriminations ; I tliink they are so much clearer, so much more satisfactory in the end. They leave no loopholes tor recriminations or for complaints, or lor that sense of injustice tliat so often lurks in the heart of the generous per- bon who always gets stuck in that kind of an arrangement. It I borrow someone's circulating library book I want to calculate the number of days I have had it und pay ray hhare then and there when 1 return it. I don't warn her to put rue off with: "Oh. I'll take one of your books sometime." Doubtless she will but If the does she may pay rne. Meantime. I want to pay her. Then we- are on u pert'eccly'laii- footing, Then E*ch O«e Orders What He Wants I like to pay my own carfare and for my own lunch (with females of course). If two people lunch together and cue pays one time and the oilier the twxt th*n both are hampered in their ordering by that fact The hostess often ferls she must order more than the wants and the guest must keep her eye on prices. Whereas 'if each ""pay'si l*er own way each eau do just what she wants. Of course I suppose it is possible to carry this sort of. thing too far end be really ungracious about it- I suppose some tetter friend will probably write me and ask U I want to pay anyone when 1 receive a gift.

Ou~t) ifPPSJNS THE MORONS <WnIt Mnsom Btnart sleeks rather stir my spleen when in some hook: or magazine they speak of morons just as though such people thronged this vale of woe. 'AH men ore morons, th«y assume, who think there's life beyond the tomb, who &tm believe that pious skates will enter through the pearly gates. The moron has nn Infant mind that's In an adult head confined, believing in old fashioned things. In lasting love and wedding ringo, In quiet eve- flings by the fire with goodly book or living lyre; ho likes to read a pleasant tale where virtue and truth worth prevail, to get down on his "cnarrowtjones and pray at times In lervent tones, to sing old hymns his fathers knew, to reverence whatever'* true. The moron, if vn> may believe those alecks who would not deceive, is satisfied to have one wife, with whom he travels all through life, and tlumbers calmly by her side when they have donn their work and died. He is so dull he thinks it coarse to make a practice of divorce; he Is so simple he believes that Adams f-hould not shake their Eves. The moron has not learned to sneer at creeds to which his friends adhere; his childish and untutored mind is wedded to his useful grind, to earning bread In honest sweat and always keeping out of debt,. His simple pleasures he enjoys, ns kids are entertained by toys. Such is the moron who appears in screeds of aleck pamphleteers, and he's the salt'of this old earth, and he survives the cynic's mirth. (Copyright, 1028, George Matthew Adams) BENNY'S NOTEBOOK (Lee Pape) Pop was smoking to himself and ma sed. I stopped In and bawt a new hat today, WU1- yum. Thats a coincidents, so did I, pop sed. I stopped in at 3 places before 1 saw ]ust wat I wanted, ma .scd, and pop sed, Well then Im 2 laps ahed of you because I ony stopped In at one place and in fa^t if tha. man had seen me coming Im sure I needeait even of stopped in at that one because he would proberly of met me at the door with the very hat I was looking for. Its really a duck of a hat and will go with practically everything I have, ma sed. und pop sed. Mine's not a bad Ud either, and come -to thtnk-of 1t I cant think of a single thing I have that it wont go with either, if I put it on fermly and dont stand for any back lawk. The real bewty of it is. theres not another Jiat like It in town, ma sed. The saleslady told me In confidents that It had been madn for the lady that lives in that big yellow house at the beginning of the bullevard, but she suddenly met with a deth in the family so she couldent wear it, but its an ill wind and PO forth, and the result is the hat. The saleslady assured me~I could hire detectives and have the whole city explored and If there was another hat like it she would refund my money, ma sed. There must be at least 10 thousand other hats like mine in town, pop sed. The salesman swore a sollem oath that its the seasons most popuier model and that he had sold hundreds of tliem with his own hand, and 1 bleeve him because on my way home I noticed a duzsen of the same identical shape and color, so I was glad I had taken his advice, and had had my initials stamped in mine to Idennify It, lie sed. I never had a hat quite like this one, ma sed, and pop sed, Well the one I bawt was so much like my last one that I was really tempted to Just keep on wearing the old one and let it go at that. It just goes to prove that it takes all sorts of sexes to buy hats, he sed. Heenlng men and ladies, SMILTAWHILE (Tom 81ms > — An Ohio farmer was shot by a holdup man the other day.

In Chicago gunmen struggle for .•supremacy in the bootlegging, gambling and vies "rackets" and shoot one another^down on crowded 'loop sldewRTks; laSImen battle with twmbs and garage owners pay tribute to racketeers; the Mafia rears its awful head, and none dares challenge Its rule; children are kidnap- ed and citizens beaten and slugged; labor aglators stir up worklngmen against their employers; rich people receive threats of death unless they hand over part of their wealth. It is, one would say, a terrible plac« to make a home, with the dark angel ever ready to brush another rooftrec with a sweep of ebon wings. Why. then, do decent people continue to live there? Why Is there not R general exodus? One explanation may be suggested by another question: Why do people go to Chicago in the first place? ambasBttdor to Great Britain; below Royal S.

A WOMAN'S VIEWPOINT YOUE CHILDREN (Olive Roberts Barton) Does your child blink his eyes, or rub them frequently? in the morning wheii he gets up. do the lids stick together and when open leave tiny granulations along the edges? — BomttimfH the irritation which causes the bunking and rubbing and the discharge which causes the lids to adhere, may be overcome by the regular use of an eye-wash every morning. A& excellent eye-wash can be made at home by dissolving a level teaspoonful of boric acid in a pint of water. The water should be boiled flwt and then allowed to cool, While still rather warm stir the boric powder into it. The powder will dissolve. The solution should be put ioto a, dean glass jar or bottle and covered or corked tightly and set away until aeedsd.' A little may be poured out fit each using. Nothing should ever bepoured back Into the jar and very useful. It flta over the eye socket and allows the fluid to flow freely around the eye when the head la tilted. Boric solution Is cooling and soothing and is good for tired eyes, too. Do not make the solution any ittronger than the directions, If bathing the eyes does not help tJhe trouble I should consult R good oculist without loss of time.' The eye is the most delicate organ in the body and la hot to b« trifled with.
