6 RANCHES IN A Li. THE PRINCIPAL CITIES
WHY THE LAND FARES ILL
A recent issue of "Life" para
phrases one of the great ' poets ?
"111 fares the laud, to hastening
Uls a prej',
Where Elinor Glyns accumulate
. And Dickenses decaj-."
One of our exchanges, commenting '
on "Life's" little take-oil says that
some of those hastening ills" are the
rush for striking and conspicuous
clothing by women instead of for ele
gance in attire; the vogue of quirk-
time trashy jingles instead of real
music; the fondness for lavish ex
penditure rather than -a prudent con
servation of money surplus; the de
cadence of sound religious principles
into, carelessness about sacred. No odds how bad your liver, stom
thinmt rl,P -fciriflnnlion f rfi. ;.. ach or bowels5 how much vour head
business and profession life
than integrity and trustworthiness; gestion, biliousness and sluggish in
the seeking for pleasure in shallow testines yeu always get the desired
and muddy pools of amusement rath
er than in clear brooks and rivers of
real life and literature.
It is trnelhat such slush as "Three
We'eks" and other books of a similar
character have displaced the "Old
Curiosity Shop," with its wondarful
tenderness and love and its un
equ'aled humor. It is also true that
such risque f lories as "The One
Woman" have put "David Copper
field" and "Barnaby Rdge" on the
shelf. Butit is lamentably truer
that iplays now allowed on the" stage
and which draw" enormous crowds
would not have been permitted in
public twenty years ago. It would
seem that playwrights and authors
of the present day' try to make their
work as suggestive as possible and
yet avoid being barred from the
mails, and our young people are per
mitted to "witness these prurient
plays and read the wretched rot
that is perpetrated under the name
of "love stories," without even a
parental hand to direct thenr '
It is time for our fathers aifd
mothers to take a hand when the'
heater descends into the dspths for

Knowledge and shonld 'Have no

The ragtime jiiifle of the present
day, the music of such pieces as
"rvery Little .Movement" and "The
Merry Widow" waltz, and all such
degenerate stuff ought to be barrel
from public presentation ard the
only way to iar sueh stuff is for an
aroused public sentimetft' to hiss it
fiom the stage. And if parents will'
pay some attention to the books
which their daughters read and the
plays which girl? and boys are per
mitted' to attend the response o the
publishers and managers will be,
prompt. They are in the thing as
a matter of business and when their
poaketbooks are hit they "holler."
