, GOVERNMENTS. History shows
that the English government has a
ways been out for the conquest of
other nations and people. There is
so much activity among us in behalf
of the entente allies that the observer
of civic life and the daily grind sees
that, these agents are injuring our
lair land. Some of the big moneyed
interests of this country have thrown
a thin blanket of prosperity over us.
Underneath its cover they are draw
ing the sinews to maintain their war
from our people and resources of our
land. It is not America for the
Americans, but for the entente allies.
They are lulling to sleep our sense of
justice and fairness, causing us to
overlook the inroads they are mak
ing on our liberties.
. Their tools are in every depart
ment of our government, undermin
ing our future welfare. They are
making, good their boast that our
land is their happy hunting ground.
-The English government is no differ
ent than the fallen governments of
thepast, preying on others Instead of
developing from within. Working for
the interests Of a small class, the
great mass of the people are cats
paws. They like these .masses as
their tools, to- safeguard their posi
tion, just' as you like the tools and
machinery of your shop which fur

may like them and whatever you
may do to safeguard and keep them
in useful condition, you do it" not for
the topis' sake, but for the ubo yob.

answered their purpose they are I
thrown in the scrap heap. This is as 1
it should be, and that is the love gov
ernments and moneyed interests have
for the masses. But humanity is
more sacred than tools of inert mat
ter. Governments are made up of
individuals whose interests have
been devoted to making themselves
part of that government By the time
they have attached themselves they
are generally 'well along in years.
Then, they endeavor to fasten them
selves there, not by service to the
people, but by perpetuating a form
lnta which they have fitted them
selves. They become human vegetables,
which it pleases us to call our con
servative element. A government
can continue in vigor only as long as
it serves to develop its source of life.
This source is in the masses of the
people, not the government, neither
a class, but the masses through
whom the forces of life surge; com
pelling them onward and upward. To
prevent this and turn these forces
into their channels has ever" been, the
effort of plutocracy.
The governments of today are the
tools of financial greed, which is in
satiable.' It knows 'neither home nor
Governments hold" our respect to

GIRLS, DON'T READ THIS. The
girls of today are fickle, frivolous and
hard to please.
The average girl is so conceited
she finds no time to becqpie interest-
ed in the achievements of man and
thereby discourages his ambitions
Girls' thoughts center entirely too
much on clothes and frivolous
amusements, which is one of the im
portant factors for fault.
They ,ax6 so fickle and hard to
please the man of today knows not
what to do. '
