is a physical coward. That he fears
death and injury.
I don't think there is a great per
centage of persons that care to shake
hands with it. And I guess the col
onel himself will avoid it as long as
he can. The death of the patriot is
not the only appaflTngjthing about
war. There are the widows and
orphans, misery and privation, and
devastation of land and property.
And then this gentleman who would
perpetuate himself in the president's
chair scoffs at peace. Thank God he
is in Oyster Bay, where he is harm
less. He suggests a denunciation of
Pres. Wilson because he endeavored
to revive America's merchant marine
that has lain dormant throughout
years of Republican reign, including
seven years of three-term (and
more) Teddy's administration. Be
cause he would eliminate the stagna
tion caused by the abrupt abandon
ment of transportation. You'll have
to get something stronger than that,
Mr. Roosevelt. And besides it is ex
pedient that you put your hammer
away until the campaign of 1916. Be
neutral and American now.
Don't try to disparage the admin

who have more time than he has. Es

106, call it "First Cut Convent Hair"
or "First Cut Walled In Julius Hair."
Rosenwald is not the only one mak
ing money on hair. Enclosed find
trust paper-atf of Mrs. B. Negrescou,
819 North American blvd., Chicago,
who has "French Convent Hair", for
What is the use of persons becom
ing hair-brained by hair splitting. It's
only a hairsbreadth to learn the truth
of the state of hairiness. It's appal
ling to be hair-triggered and hair
sprung. Any way the subject has
been hairbrushed and hairpenned. At
least it's shaggy. But why make the
"convent" the goat for the salable
ness of hair? Or is it as the colored
preacher said: "In the day of judg
ment the sheep will be separated
from the goats; brethren, we know
who wears the wool." B. Patriot.
