Watch Yourself Go By
.Just stand aside und watch yourself ro by;
Think ofjouivolf as "ho" instead of '"I."
Watch closely, as in other men you note
Tho bag kneed troupers and the seedy coat;
Pick flaws, find fault, forgot tho man is you,
And strive to make your estimate ring true.
Confront j'ourrfolf and look you in the eye
Just stand aside and watch ourself go by.
Interpret all your motives just us though
You looked on one whoso aims you did not know.
Let undisguised contempt surge thiough you whon
You see you shirk, O commonest of men!
Despise your cowardice; condemn whato'or
You note of falseness in you anywhere.
Defend not one defect that sbames your eye
.lust stand aside and watch yourself go by.
And theD with eyes unveiled to what j'ou loathe
To sins that with sweet charity you'd clothe
Back to your solf-walled tenement you'll go
With tolerance for all who dwell below.
Tho faults of others then will dwarf and shrink, .
Love's chain grow stronger by one might' link
"When you, with "he" as substitute for ''I''
Have btood aside and watched yourself go by.

rounded by Big Crowds at
Every Railroad Station.
CAMPAIGN IS NOW OPENED.
On Hoard Governor Wilson's Special
Car, Easton, Pa., Aug. 30. Governor
Woodrow Wilson Invaded Pennsylvania
yesterday, Intending to make an ad
dress at the State Grangers picnic at
Williams' Grove, south of Harnsburg.
The Governor was surrounded by such
big crowds wherever the train stopped
that he found when he crossed from
Pennsylvania into New Jersey at Eas
ton that he had made half a dozen
speeches, had shaken hands with
thousands of people and had talked
collectively to a multitude.
ft was the opening of the campaign
outside of New Jersey and the day's
events were plainly a surprise to the
Governor. He had looked for no dem
onstrations, as his train plans were not
decided upon until the last moment.
But from early morning until nightfall
the crowds gathered at the railroad
stations and cheered enthusiastically.
The Governor in all rode 2I5 miles
through Pennsylvania, and when night
came he was tired and hoarse. At
Lancaster, Harrlsburg and Williams'
Grove, Reading, AUentown and Eas
ton, great crowds 'jammed the railroad
yards and the Governor competed In
his talks with the noise of locomotives
At handshaking as well as back plat
form stumping the Governor had a
strenuous time. A brawny blacksmith
wrung the Governor's hand so hard at
Williams' Grove that for a moment the
nominee dropped his right hand limply
to his side and extended his left hand.
The Governor said his hand still pained
him from the experience.
Several thousand people wedged
themselves in the big auditorium at
Williams' Grove to hear the Governor's
principal speech, but far more were
unable to gain entrance and the Gov
ernor mado a second speech out doors.
