THE GENTLE CHAUFFEUR. Mayor Harrison, of Chicago, was be ing congratulated at a luncheon on his ordinance forbidding chauffeurs to blow their horns in the crowded busi ness sections of the city. "Chauffeurs think." he said, "that they need only blow their horns and the pedestrians will leap out of the way. Let the chauffeur drive with care, remembering that the pedes trians' right is supreme. "Why, if something isn't now done, the chauffeurs in their arrogance will be getting up a horn code 'for pedes trians to learn and obey—a code something like this— "One toot: Throw a quick back headspring for the sidewalk. "Two toots: TUve over the car. "Three toots: Lie down calmly; it is too late to escape; 'but we will go over you as easily as possible if you keep very still. "One long and two short toots: Throw yourself forward and we will save both your arms. "One short and two long toots: Throw yourself backward and one leg will be saved.

HARM IN GLOOMY HOUSEHOLDS. [Newspaper Article] — Rainbow Argus — 13 June 1914

HARM ii\l GLOOMY HOUSEHOLDS. Boys and girls are often spoiled by parental gloom. The father never unbends. . The mother's rheumatism hurts so she docs not see how little Maggie can ever laugh. Childish curiosity is denounced as impertin ence. The dining-room is a parlia •liiput, and everything in everlasting order. Pails and tops in that house are a nuisance, and the play that the boy is expected most to relish is geo i;i try. ;i little sweetened with the ohalk of blackboards. For cheerful reading, the father recommends Young's "Night Thoughts" and Har vey's "Meditations Among the Tombs." At the 'first chance, the. boy will break loose. With one grand leap he will clear the catechisms. He /will ■burst away into all riotous living. He will be so glad to get out of Egypt that he will jump into the Red Sea. The hardest colts to catch are those that have a long while been locked up. Restraints are necessary, hut there must be some outlet. Too high a dam will ^-erflow and inundate all th...
