LET'S PULL TOGETHER. Who
is my brother? Every human being,
without any exception of race or col
or; even though they injure us or dif
fer from us in allegiance or religion.
All the world is one great "nation,
One grand human family;
Then to work out our salvation,
We must live in harmony;
Take our place among our brothers,
Pull together with the tide,
All our blessings share with others,
While our labors we divide.
Now! as we are tossing headlong,
Buffeted by storm and strife,
Steady, mates! Lest we be led wrong,
Look ahead and pull for life!
Pull together !t That's the slogan!
All for all, and hand in hand;
In all tongues let it be spoken:
"Love is law" throughout the land.
James Austin Murray.
WHAT TO READ. In answer to a
Constant Reader I believe I am fair
ly capable of advising on the matter
of books for a 13-year-old boy. The
following books should be read in
the order named:
Mark Twain's "Huckleberry Finn"
and "Tom Sawyer"; Defoe's "Robin
son Crusoe"; Stevenson's "Treasure
Island"; Verne's "20,000 Leagues
Under the Sea"; Barrie's "The Little
Minister"; "Ten Nights in a Bar
room"; "John Barleycorn"; London's
"Call of the Wild"; "A Gentleman
Prom Indiana"; "Lady Baltimore";
"Lavender and Old Lace"; Prescott's
"History of Mexico"; Prescott's
"History of Peru"; "The American
Commonwealth"; "With Stanley in
Darkest Africa"; "Nurse and Spy";
"Under Two Flags"; "Ben Hur";
The Prince of India"; "The Bishop's
Carriage"; "Brewster's Millions";
Milton's "Paradise Lost"; "Arabian
Those will do for a starter. By the
time a boy reads all those he will
know what he wishes to read. Of
course, he -should read the bible con
scientiously and, consult a good en
cyclopedia often. By all means read
the "Youth's Companion." Any oth
er information I can give I will glad
ly furnish ,him. Chas. P. Waldion,

SHOULD A MAN? Should a man
condemn a girl if she has had a mis
fortune when very young and foolish (
and unknowing of the ways of the
world? I'd like to ask the young men
has a girl any chance to make good
is there any one who will" let you
and help you forget your sorrows?
Is there any man who could over
look a girl's past and give her a
chance? Has any man the right to
remind you of your misfortune and
use it as the only way to add more
to your tortured heart? Is there any
respect left from the men for one of
that kind? I wish some young men
would respond. A Young Mother.
HEAR BOTH SIDES. One of the
news items of The Day Book and all
the trust papers claim a wave of pa
triotism such as was never known
before is sweeping the entire country
and all peace talk is being licked up
by the great flames of patriotism.
Readers of nothing but the one
sided, doped trust papers, and all
easily misled simps who have not at
tended a debate or lecture, to get as
near as possible to both sides of this
preparedness and war talk, have en
listed. I will wager $10 to $1 that not one
out of ten of the misled working class
simps who have enlisted have attend
ed at least one lecture by a(working
class anti-military lecturer or one
debate or read one piece of anti-military
literature of the working class,
so as to understand and determine i.
intelligently their interest as workers
in this most important matter.
Those workers who fell for the
one-sided dope of the trust press and
all the jingoism and advertising are
the only misled simns, and they don't
count, because the great majority of.
