Why have not men been permitted

the men ol Cairo have not energy

Mime years ago, got together a good
many hooks and then permitted the as
sociation to collapse. Tho books were
sold, and the money who got It? They
established a Literary Club, and met In
Democratic Hall, sounded their trumpet,
and collapsed. They organized the Delta
Club, turnlMied rooms and failed again.
They have been dlsllngtii-hed failures In
all Mich alliilrs, and have not spirit
