Habit Is one of the strongest ties In
our nature in either good or evil. The
sinful man or woman will have to
struggle back to the paths of virtue.
Even' in the best environment it
will be a struggle.
I will speak for the girl only, for
man has his home and friends to
beckon him back. I am glad that it is
so. I can see no good to be gained in
having a colony of fallen men, out
casts from society.
It is just as wrong to treat women
so and just as senseless. They can
be useful members of a home. They
have hearts and souls and intellects.
Some have been known to sacrifice
themselves to aid an aged parent or
an invalid sister.
1 There is hope for every one, even
those addicted to drugs and alcohoL
Who says there is not is not a believ
er in the Saviour of men.
I hope every woman who is an out
cast from horn will write a letter to
our daily papers asking for a helping
hand to aid her in leading a better
I am sure someone with means will
come to her assistance.
We cannot ask them to face the
world and possible starvation, alone.
I have faith in the goodness of
human nature, which even the letter
of "An Interested Reader" cannot
take away. A Constant Reader.
TOO MUCH SALTPETRE. Eu
rope is needing corn badly. Ameri
can merchants need money more
than corn, so if money can be made
through the sale of corn what is a
poor yearning money grubber to do?
Obviously increase the supply.
Somehow! Anyhow! They did and
with subtle sarcasm took to the salt
petre method of adulteration. But
the government of the United States
woke up at Baltimore to what was
happening and seized many of the
saltpetred cars under the pure food
laws. These things happen occa
sionally when the people are in dan
ger of getting too much sand in their
coffee xt wood splints as jam seeds.
The owners, who by the way have a
name similar to Armour Square and
jail .their office boys if they unthink
ingly carry a two-cent stamp home,
were not ashamed.
They had saltpetred the people too
often to have any conscience left.
They were indignant at the arbitrary
action of an inspector who was im
perilling business even if saving the
innocent ones from being too well
salted. They tried to have the Chi
cago pure food man prove the Balti
more pure food man had erred a lit
tle. But. nothlne doing.
This is only a too frequent inci
dent in American business life, but as
a visitor from Mars would say: "Why
does not a greater earthquake than
Italy has had convulse America?"
But then the visitor from Mars is 'a
grouchy, faddy traveler. The Amer
ican public is so much more patient
So very patient. Reader.
WHY PICK ON EM? Why pick
on the poor old district, prostitutes?
Let us look at this subject from all
sides. How about the old married
girls who keep appointments in the
daytime while hubby is away earning
board and keep for honest little wifle
and maybe the babies t.
And then the other kind of wife
who wants salad for dinner and
hubby's salary wiH not permit it?
But don't you or anyone else dare
to cast a reflection on the .married
charity lady. She stands for. all that
' Poor woman, she doesn't even think
she Is scabbing on the job of an open
and above-board prostitute. N. C.
