turn neglects to say where the men
should be sent Now, I have lived
in this good old world of ours some
fifty years and I never yet saw a
woman go wrong that a man did not
go along (without being asked,
either). And he never was a poor
workingman, either. And he de
serves the same punishment that the
woman gets. Now in all this re'form
wave it seems that it is always the
woman they want to reform. If the
millionaires were reformed I don't
think it would hurt them, either. Now
in Miss Vittum's reform for women,
who would she get to run this insti
tution? I am pretty sure it would
never do to send men there to man
age it. Also, after they have "been
in this reformatory one or two years
would she be willing to take one of
them in her home? I never yet saw
any woman or .girl that was helped
in that way. Now don't understand
me that I uphold immorality. I don't.
Neither have I a grudge against man,
because I have a good husband and
also a good son, but if either of them
went wrong I would not want the
woman punished alone. I once heard
a very eminent minister say that the
reason some women never went
wrong, they never had an opportu

THE RELIGIOUS ISSUE
Editor Day Book Would like to
answer W. Vollbrepht through your
column of One Man's Opinion. ,He
states the Menace and the Guardians
of Liberty are the cause of Anti-Catholic
uprising. Prom that I take he is
one and a reader of the other, for the
two go hand in hand. Whatou say,
I am sorry to say is true.
It seems too bad that a large ma
jority of, the people are blind. The
more you can bunk the American
people the better they like it. The
Menace reminds me of antique fur
niture in this way. Take an old chair
or table, fix it up, set it Jn a show
window and have a sign on it saying,
"Qneeu Isabella sat in this cahir,"
or "King Henry the Eighth ate off
this table" and the people will believe
The Menace is made up of filthy
lies, for it has been proven. Take
the K of C oath for one. Did the
Menace inform its readers that the
oath they printed was a misprint?
No, you bet they did not.
What have the Guardians of Lib
erty done? I beg to differ with you,
when you say, that a Catholic can
run as a Guardian of Liberty candi
date. . '
How about New York, Ohio, and
Omaha, Nebraska, in this last elec
tion? Does that indicate so?
You say that the church's slogan
lis "Make America Catholic." To that
I will say that is the first time I have
ever heard that remark.
There is only one favor that a Cath
olic in legislation can give to the
church, and that is to uphold the con
stitution of United States, which
gives religious liberty, which some
are trying very hard to erase.
, If the people that read these filthy
lies would only investigate and de
mand proof in each particular case,
and not in generalities, it would end
Don't be a sucker, for they get the
coin. What do you get? F. M.
One Woman's View. Two men
were standing near the door of an
I. C. car. One said to the other:
It's getting so now hat a man dare
not look at a good-looking woman
for fear of being pinched for flirting."
A well-dressed, good-looking wom
an passed in the door just as the re
mark was made and evidently heard
it. "That's all bunk," she said, and
passed on into the car. What's the
answer? One of the Men.
(One answer is that looking at a
good-looking woman is quite differ
ent from sitting beside her in a car
seat and getting too handy with
your knee. You can look, but you
mustn't touch, Editor.)
