have suffered untold misery, but very
few of the people knew anything of
it Had they been wealthy they
would have had trained nurses, the
best of medical aid and all their ac
quaintances would have been say
ing: "Poor Mary, how sorryT-feel
for her, I am afraid she will never
recover." The poor woman dies,
and who cares?
I am the young mother of twin
daughters, less than 6 months old.
Whether it was due to my education,
or the lack of same, I am unable to
say, but I had an exceptionally easy
time at child-birth. I have two big,
healthy and bright girls. And, oh!
such joy for their daddy and mamma.
As far as education, I can say I have
far more than the average citizen of
my age. Even though I am a mother,
I am not through, for I still greatly
enjoy my reading and studying every
spare moment I have in my busy life.
Let's have some other mothers'
opinion of Mrs. Liggett's idea.
Perhaps I am wrong. If anyone
can give a substantial proof I am
willing to accept the same. Mrs.
Marion L Sharp.
The capitalists have prepared them
selves, that if this country engages
in war with another country they
shall be able to send their workers
to fight for this country.
Now the workers shall prepare
themselves to send their bosses to
fight for this country.
Suppose the bosses would have to
fight for their country just like their
workers, would there be such prepar
edness? Suppose the workers would really
fight for the interest of their country
and not for the interest of the capi
talists, would there be such prepar
edness? We all know that the capitalists
would not go to war and fight like
the workers. We all know that the
workers fight for the interest of the
capitalists and not for the interest of
their country. We all know that the
workers own no property and they
have nothing to protect
Therefore, it is necessary for the
workers to prepare themselves, that
if the capitalists call upon them they
shall stand solid like one man and tell
the capitalists: "We do not want
war. If you capitalists want war, go -and
fight!" Jos. Leevack. v
MURDER! There is a rumor
passing around that certain capital
ists of the U. S. have paid a certain
amount of graft to Villa to murder
the U. S. citizens in Mexico so as to
cause a war between the U. S. and
They have succeeded in murder
ing U. S. citizens, but have not suc
ceeded in plunging the U. S. into war.
But they are not foiled. They have
another scheme up their sleeve, ac
cording to this rumor, and they will
plunge U. S. into a bloody war if nots
To these capitalists it pays to have
thousands and thousands of hus
bands and fathers murdered, so they
may reap their profits.
I wonder, just merely wonder, M
there is any possible chance of this
rumor being true. I wonder well,
think it over. M. Feldman.
THEY MARCHED FOR. It was
indeed inspiring to hear the girls in
the parade shouting: "One, two,
three, four, who are we for? Siegel
Cooper's!" You couldn't fool them.
They knew whom they were march
ing for. Thomas Levish.
