work the1 other way, I think. If
agitators are suppressed, and our
leaders are not left free to go on
helping down-trodden toilers ac
cording to our ideals, then may
'come revolution !
"Our enemies may run the red
flags off the streets of Massachu
setts. They may condemn Et
tor, Giovannitti and Caruso. But
fh'ey cannot "kill the spirit of lib
erty. "It is a foolish court that will
-try to fool an awakened people.
-It is a foolish court that does not
release quickly those wrongly in
dicted men. For the anger of the
American workingman is awak
ened, it cannot be held in lesh
much longer, even by the strong
est leaders.
"I wish I did not have to say it,
but I have seen how in the past
if ew weeks we have failed to .hold
'the workers of Massachusetts and
iNew York in check how they
lhave struck 'in demonstration'
-against our advice and pleading.

THE WAITER
By Berton Braley.
Be kind to the' waiter, l
Be patient and sweet,
Though his thumb's in your soup
And the stew that you eat.
Don't ever grow angry,
But smile right along,
Though he gets every part
Of your order all wrong.
Be kind to tiie waiter
Pobi? down-trodden moge
Though you wish ypu could lynch
himr ' - -
And" long for-a rope;
He doesn't make more ;
Than ten dollars a .day;
Which 'every one knows.
Is deplorable pay! . -f
s
Be kind to the waiter, y
Nofmatter how rotten K r
No Jnatjter'how much v,
0 your needs 'he's .forgotten;
This dop&as the wisest
Wherever you've been'
Be kind to the waiter,-' .
You may come again!

WAS SAFE
A novelist whose sales tlo not
correspond with the lofty nature
of the reviews his books usually
get was walking along when
there glided past the motor car of
a 'publisher 'who had brought out,
at a heavy loss, one of-jthe author's
books. Stopping his car, the pub
lisher said :
"There's a big manuscript fall
ing out of your overcoat. You
might have had your pocketpick
ed if you were not so well
known."
