Labor and Capital
There are people who imagine that
there are only two sides between the
conflict as at present waged between
labor and capital. But really there
are three sides, and the right side is
the one that is usually ignored. The
two sides usually heard from is the
monopoly o( wealth, taken care of by
the trusts, aid the monopoly of labor
taken care of by the labor unions.
Both are moved by selfishness, and
resort to such means and measures to
carry their points that Christian peo
ple can not consistently have any
thing to do with either. We will name
a few of these objectionable features.
Hoth organized labor and organized
capital, being organized strictly for
self-interests of those on the other side,
have been inclined to ignore the law,
giving the government some trouble
to compel them to be law-abiding,
lioth (labor unionism especially) have
resorted to violence in order to carry
their points. Doth must depend upon
organized secrecy in order to mike
their plans workable and effective.
Doth have ignored Bible precepts as
applied to business save in pointing
out to those un the other side what
their duty is. Added to this there is
the organized effort on the part of la
bor unions, to compel employers of
labor not to employ non-union men,
thus endeavoring to compel these non
union men, either to join their unions
We have stated bare facts. Com
ment is not necessary. Monopoly is
wrong because it is founded on sel
fishness. Where selfishness rules, the
Golden Rule has no place and some
body suffers. How Christian people
can have any part in this strife between
these two great forms of monopoly,
either on the side of labor or of capi
tal is hard to understand. Selected
Wherever the Word of God reveals
some fault in a man, and tfiis makes
no impression on that man's life, it is
an evidence that there are some other
faults about the life of that man.

What Can a Boy Do?
What can a boy do, and where can a boy stay,
If he is always told to get out of the way?
He cannot sit here, and he must not stand there;
The cushions that cover that fine rocking chair
Were put there, of course, to be seen and admired ;
A boy has no business to ever be tired.
The beautiful roses and flowers that bloom
On the floor of the darkened and delicate room
Are not made to walk on at least, not for boys ;
The house is no place, anyway, for their noise.
Yet boys must be somewhere ; and what if their feet,
Sent out of the houses sent into the street,
Should step around the corner and pause at the door,
Where other boys' feet have often paused before ;
Should pass through the gate-way of glittering light,
Where jokes that are merry and songs that are bright,
Ring out a warm welcome with flattering voice,
And temptingly say "Here's a place for the boys."
Ahl What if they should? What if your boy or mine
Should cross o'er the threshold which marks out the
' I'wixt virtue and vice, 'twixt pureness and sin,
And leave all his innocent boyhood within?
Oh, what if they should, because you and I,
While the days and the months and the years hurry by,
Arc too busy with cares and with life's fleeting joys,
To make 'round our hearthstones a place for the boys ?
There's a place for the boys they will find it somewhere ;
And if out homes are too daintily fair
For the touch of their fingers, the tread of their feet,
They'll find it, and find it, alas, in the street,
'Mid the gildings of sin and the glitter of vice ;
And with heartaches and longings we pay a dear price
For the getting of gain that lifetime employs,
If we fail to provide a place for the boys.
A place for the boys ; dear mother, I pray ;
As cares settle down 'round our short earthly vay,
Don't let us forget by our kind, loving deeds,
To show we remember their pleasure a tut needs ;
Though our souls may be vexed with the pr jblems of life,
And worn with besetments and toiling and strife,
Our hearts will keep younger your tired heart and mine
If we give them a place in their innermost shrine ;
And to our life's latest hour 'twill be one ot out joys
That we kept a small corner a place for the boys.

Woman Suffrage Notes
Texas is to hae a woman's farm
organiation, the first of its kind in
the south. The United States Census
report for 1910 discloses the fact that
nearly two million women are en
gaged in agriculture. Many of these
are widows who successfully manage
farms and in some cases perform all
the duties attendant ploughing,
reaping and care of live-stock.
While these efficient women are con
tributing to the food supply of the
nation, and are bearing their share of
taxes to support the Government, and
raising families, in every southern
State they are classed politically with
the idiots, insane, paupers and other
disfranchised beings. This gross in
justice, and unmerited stigma should
arouse every southern farm woman to
demand the ballot as a recognition of
her economic and social work and po
"Woman's suffrage is coming as
inevitably as tomorrow's dawn. It
probably will not come to many states
as fast as its enthusiastic advocates
desire. But the expansion of the
suffrage is as inevitable as was the
expansion of the restricted manhood
suffrage of the colonies. When it
(woman's suffrage) finally comes
there will be no turning back. Suf
frage revolutions never go backward.
There will then be no more question
of whether woman's suffrage is a sue
cess than there is today whether
manhood suffrage is wise." Carrier
Gazette, McKinney, Texas.
Food prices have soared to such an
extent that Federal and State investi
gations are ordered. The President
of the Housewifes League advises boy
cott of articles of food unduly boosted
in price. This was done in Chicago
very effectively. The relation of war
to the market-basket, and its intimate
association with the most secluded do
mesticity has become painfully appar
ent. Women are made keenly aware
of their helplcsssness until votes are
their portion to prevent war and pre
serve domestic and economic condi
tions. The frightful waste of war
must be paid for by women in the
lives of their sons as well as by do

No Money lor Pacific
Dispatches the first of the week
stated that an attempt to secure funds
in Europe to be used in inprovements
on the Mo. Pac. and Iron Mountain
system next year, had failed. So
tight was the European money mar
ket, it is stated, that there would
have been little likelihood of secur
ing the money, even though the pres
ent war had not broken out. As a
result, according to the press report
in question, improvement expendi
tures on the Mo. Pac. -Iron Mountain
next year will be very limited.
