Avcnuo properly owners who havo it in their power to give
tho families of departing soldiers a better chnnco to sco next
Thursday's groat send-off parado of tho National Guardsmen should
not go unheeded.
It is going to bo one of the great days in tho history of New York.
The memory of it and tho honor of it belong not only to tho boys who
march away but also in equal part to thoso neurcst and dearest to thorn,
whoso sacrifice is to let them go.
On thot day, as Tho Evening World has already insisted, this
great city should overflow with kindness for families of tho State's
soldiers. Space in a window or on a marblo doorstop ought to con
stitute the smallest part of such kindness and a most natural and
willing gift of patriotism.

that at such periods conclusions are frequently urged upon them much

The perjury charges ugainst Mr. Roynolds will undoubtedly lead

Nietzsche was an Anarchist, but he
