A0 brawny, Hlack laborer alighted
from a cab, lighted a cigar and picked
up his hod to carry brick.
The cab had come an hour before to
carry him from his work to dinner
it was a public conveyance run by
one of bis own race
He paid the driver for hauling him.
And that was a hard times scene.
A business man said: "That doesn't
loo<k like hard times to nie. That
sort of thing that is troubling us.
Rich and poor have been going the
pace that kills—spending too much
money for luxuries that should have
been saved for a rainy day, plunging
in business, playing the game too
"This financial pinch is a good thing
it will bring us to our senses—it is
warning—the preventive med-
e are now applying—sober
judgment and caution—will save
from a spell of sickness that
have been fatal."

All these things must be watched
