Mean Joke

Picture Wanted—Last fall a number of pictures were taken of the steam ditcher and gangs of men employed on the sewer work. Among the diggers was a man named Gottleib Delzer, a recent arrival in this country. Delzer died last winter. He never had a picture taken of himself, but some of the pictures taken of the diggers showed him at work. It is one of these pictures his family would very much like to secure and through the Tribune they ask if those who took the pictures mentioned above will leave copies at this office so that an enlargement might be made of the father, as a family keepsake. The oldest son, who at the time of his father's death, and who is the mainstay of the family, was near to death with typhoid fever and feels deep regret that he could not have been with his parent at the last, therefore it would seem that a kindly heart would prompt those amateurs who have pictures of the trench diggers to leave the copies as desired so that the son could look them over in search of that one which shows his father. He is willing to pay for the picture and the trouble.
