On every pay check issued by the Escanaba Manfacturing Company of Michigan are printed these words: "Not to be cashed at a saloon." Then there is a further statement that the check is subject to the conditions printed on the back of it, which read as follows:—
"This order will not be paid or honored by the drawer or by the bank upon which it is drawn, if it becomes endorsed by or the property of any person, firm, or corporation engaged in the business of selling spirituous or intoxicating liquors, either at wholesale or retail, or if it becomes endorsed by or the property of any person who conducts a hotel or boarding-house in connection with any place where such liquors are sold; and the person in whose favor it is drawn and every person in whose hands this shall come, accepts it subject to these conditions, and in full payment of the amount named on its face and of the claim against the drawer for which it is given. The undersigned each agrees to the foregoing."
Oakland, Cal., is to have a thirty-five hundred dollar book on city planning. It is said to be the first city on the Pacific coast to take up seriously the matter of laying out streets and planning generally in advance for future growth. The city council has appropriated twelve hundred dollars as its share of the expense of bringing out the book, and the rest of the money has been pledged by other communities in Alameda county and by private subscriptions. The book was written by Dr. Werner Hegemann, a German expert on city planning, who was engaged to come from Berlin to study local conditions. The city intends to use the volume as a text-book in the high schools, thus developing interest in city conditions and their improvement.
