Dust. - The city is full of dust. The street sprinkler cannot keep it down. Dust is no respector of persons; it covers the silk and lace of the nabob with as little compunction as it saturates the rags of the beggar. Dust is "democratic." Yet with dust on our clean collar - dust in our eyes - dust between our grinders - dust in our inkstand - dust on the nib with which we write - our cry to the sprinkler overhead and to delinquent subscribers is, "Down with the dust!"
