prove the right of parasitism. Leeches
get only local and short-lived benefits
while actually giving them; parasites
live long, cling hard, dig deep and
are sometimes-beautifully ornamen
tal. Nature has it that all of this
should compensate for its taking of
life. And if it doesn't, then the peo
ple are getting coarse enough to
catch on. J. J.f 1432 Oliver St
A NEW RELIGION. In the days
when Columbus discovered America
this country was.a wilderness. "Where
are the happy hunting grounds
now? They are growing vegetables.
When the bible and its religions were
invented the old world was a wilder
ness and these religions have been a
failure since they began. The cap
italists of Europe hold the Jews,
Christians and Freethinkers by the
ears to kill each other.
No use, the old humbug must go
or the people cannot live. I have
spent my life and money to create a
new religion called Natureism, but
lost out. Hence I pass to nature's
wisdom, hoping that it will rain thun
derbolts till Natureism is recognized.

PRAISES POLICE. Our police
were the target of much condemna
tion recently and I must say that such
a method of trying to better our po
lice system is a very poor and in
effective one.
I have been stopped by policemen
and questioned and searched by them
more than once. Yet I believe that
they should be encouraged to ques
tion and search street corner loafers
and hang-arounds and keep them
moving just as is done in other cities
as long as they do it in a sane and
humane manner. James McGuire,
125 Throop st
WANTS TO SEE RED LIGHTS.
The man who closed the Chicago
Tedlight district was an old man and
as a married man. He did not close
the red lights because he thought it
wrong; he closed it to make a hero
of himself in his old age. If the red
light district would be open now the
unmarried young men would not at
tack young girls. It would keep the
girls from stopping citizens on the
street and in hotels.
If the men go to the redlight dis
trict they know what their business
it Smaller towns have the redlight
district If there was something
wrong about it they would not
have it.
How about the fourth largest city
in the world? I hope our mayor will
do something to help his Chicago
boys and bachelors along. J. S.

ONLY A BABY -By
Derf Gaser
Only a baby, bless its bright eyes,
What could be sweeter under the
skies?
What more blithesome, happy and
gay,
Than this little angel God sent our
way.
Only a baby, this joy divine,
Upon our cheerless hearth shall shine,
And bless our home and make it
bright
With its own happy, baby light
Perhaps it brings a little care;
Happiness with anxiety must always
share;
The joy but all the brighter grows
While trouble into the shadow goes.
Only a baby, God's gift to man;
Guard it and shield it as best you can.
Some day its own it will reclaim
To give to it a fairer name.

From the Potomac river to the
Maine-Canadian border there are
only two counties of all the states
which cannot boast a single
mile of railroad. These are Pulton
county, in southern Pennsylvania,
and Pendleton county, in West Vir-
