FEAR A WAR OF CLASSES
Prevailing Methods of Industrial Distri
Cleveland. Prevailing methods of in

eous war of classes in America. Young
girls of today are merely carelesi chil

have a legitimate curiosity as to the
origin of life, and vague explanations
based on the supernatural do not gratify
it. Schools In domesticity should pre
pare the child for work.
