an eye" about that temperamental
stuff, and cross your heart again and
admit the truth that if Miss Murphy's
name was as before stated and Mich
ael J. Collins made the motion to oust
her he would be "burned up" by Loeb
and Loeb's people as a bigot.
The papers would roast him, the
holler would go out that the Loebs
were persecuted, when, in fact, they
get the "cream of the earth." And
good luck to them! But I warn them
that other people and other races are
entitled to as much consiedration
as Loeb's people, and if they don't get
it it's because they are damn fools.
Because they don't "stick" and fight
for their rights and demand fair play.
You can hang and damn a million
Americans and "fire" a million Miss
Murphys and not a word is said by
the papers or the public.
Try to hang or "fire" one little Ja

pursestrings and newspapers, re
formers and preachers of all kinds
and colors howl night and day until
Jake is saved from the rope and
even gets his job back. You Mur

Lincolns better wake up. Pull the
cobwebs out of your "blinkers" or
you'll find yourself owned, controlled
and out of jobs very soon. M. J. Gallery.

SEX. Sex doesn't indicate paral
lelism, so that just because we speak
of a woman as pure doesn't say that
purity, innocence and personal integ
rity in a man is anything to blow
In a woman these are everything
just because she's a woman. There
are qualities conplemental to these
in a man.
Accordingly, the complement of
purity in him should mean possession
of provocative power to the normal
extent If he hasn't got this, then
he's physically below par that is,
not pure enough. Innocence and
personal integrity in him should
therefore mean possession of enough
judgment to keep away from befoul
ing acts and influences.
In exercising this judgment a man
can still remain fairly normal.
, Sexually, woman is different; mor
ally about as weak as man. The av
