--If anybody deserves choking, it is that class of pug-nosed, dirty-faced, high-flavored, ragged, lean, bony class of animated skeletons who ride lazily through our streets crying charcoal and fruit.
They send forth sounds that ‘--harrow up a man's soul,"’ especially when writing an editorial, and make one say things internally which outwardly would give a man a bad character for eloquence.
To all such noisy demonstrators we say, ‘"if you must be endured, keep your mouth shut under our windows — dry up, evaporate, leave as rapidly as possible."’ To our Mayor
we present them as a ‘"crying evil," ’ and respectfully ask for their suspension.
