brought out a fresh throng of them.

With fathers and sons on the filing

Street singers who sell the wbrds
and music of the songs they sing have
always been common in Paris. But
now one sees a new type of singers.
They accompany themselves on goitars,
violins and sometimes barps. Their
voices quaver as they sing. Many of
them were well to do a few weeks
There are more beggars than usual.

he is, than the city fathers have in
times of peace.
There are many women among the
beggars. There are always women who
borrow or rent babies to excite sym-

little ones through the sal of paper
or pencils or some such small articles.
But now real mothers are making the
effort to earn money for their fami
lies. The babies they hold in their
arms are their oWn.
Department Stores Empty.
Business generally Is at a standstill,
and money Is scarce. Much is going
out, and little coming in.
In the great department stores the

have next to nothing to do. Few peo

gone- The vendors have c-uit shouting.

Chicago. Oct. 10. -There is no more
interesting ,and remarkable spectacle
than the tremendous, nation-wide fight
now going on between the advocates
and opponents of the use of alcohol as
a beverage.
How many persons know that 10
states of the Union already have voted
in favor of state-wide prohibition?
They are Maine, West 'Virginia? North
Carolina, Kansas, Tennessee, Georgia,
Oklahoma. Mississippi, North Dakota
and Virginia, the latter swinging into
the prohibition column only last
in the campaign which will come to
an end next month it is estimated
that the prohibition forces are spend-
cause of the huge colored population.
Saloons are, most frequent and the
liquor interests strongest in large
cities, and yet, despite that fact, about
50,000,000 of the population of the
United States now live in prohibition
districts. '
, Whatever the outcome of the com
ing election, the prohibition leaders In
tend to centre thelr work on congress
at the December session, with the idea
of securing the passage and submis
sion to the state of a prohibition
amendment to the constitution.
It Is also likely that congress will be
strongly urged to set an example to
the, rest of the country by passing
a law which shall make Washington
and the District of Columbia a prohi
bition district. -v
