Following Is an article on Th?
Pollcocnan" ?ritten, by the editor of
this paper three years ugo:
How few of US ?top to think about
tin) big uuu in blue uniform! Wo
den him day Jo and day out, mttidog
bis round? about tho city, quietly,
solemnly find with little to say. So
often and reg?lurly wo see hlrn that
hin greatness, though unassuming he
is, almost passes out of mind. And
because ho has to deal with a low
Class of people very often, tilOBO who
drluk, ourse, steal uud kill, we some
timeti forgot und treat hlrn with less
than duo courtesy. Hut a moment's
thought shows him up uh ho really
is, and wo tip our hat?.
All honor to the guardian of our
safety! Thougb all tho day ho
wutchetf tig seeing that barm befalls
us not. HLs daty hi not simply tu
Beize law-breakers aud Imprison
them; ho has higher work. Ho
guards the walk of honest men und
prevents them falling Into barm; ho,
by his very presence Intimidates
wrong.doers und holds them in sub
.jeetion. He makes it possible for
unprotected men to go ubout their
daily duties without concern as to
their personal safety. And his
Vigilance Is ever over our mothers
ami ulster, to sea that dangers come
not their way. How unxlous und
troubled Would Wif be About those ?u
dear to u? If tho big pollcmon were
riot their protectors. But wo love
this uinn most, because he guards
tbo 1 itr 1 r> children. I'p und down the
vtreete these little innocents frolic
never suspecting that danger lurks
near, and that hurni might befall
them. And bow careful Is the noble
man in blue! Ilts eye. Is ever on
thff?se helpless ones anxiously watch
ing their every move, seeing that no
ruthless hand checks their enjoyment,
that none cause:; thom grief. If i'
approaches danger, be takes th<> little
bund In his and gently leads It aside
If tho Utile one stumbles ami Is hurt,
up In his strong arms he takes it.
SOOthlng the spirit with soft words
ami driving away tho tears with tils
A tender loving spirit shines
through th* ?yes of the good police
man. Many tiring their griefs to him
und many are aided. The poor
woman out of homo and nwuy from
loved ones, looks to him for comfort
Had assistance and rarely docs i>he
rook In vain. Th<? lost boy can, with
full confidence look up Into the noble
face and bee direction. The big
policeman sees so much of grief and
pfllu that his heart aches, nnd he
irles to nssaugo them. Everybody's
troubles are his trouble und well
doce he curry the burden. His life
is sweetened by bis kind acts, and day
by day he grows In greatness. In II
life of Korvleo he linds n Joy thnt few
IJut we love this nmn most becauso
he keeps watch over us while we
sleep. All night long, up anil down
the lonely at recta bo treads his
solitary way; eyes open and ears bent
for tho least sight of sound that
should not be. Wrer wakeful Is ho,
that wo may sleep in pence and with
assurance of safety. His prosonco
at this tium Is u safeguard, for thieves
a/id rubber.?? fe-ur to come about, nnd
when danger does approach and when
harm is about to befall defenseless
ones, he Ls there to defend. It the
Incbldlary upplie.i a torch to our
beautiful dwellings tbi.s man se.--. it
and warns u.-j our danger.
Ttiuugh the lotitf hours of the night
be keeps thuse lonely vigils no com
panion, olono with bis thoughts. And
what are his thought*!? They must
bo of tho many souls ho Is guarding
Out over the big city ho casts his eye;
be *uvs no one. hears no sound; all i.
0 death-like stillness. Thousands
of tlrtnl bodies are resting from a
day's labor; thousands of minds are
wandering amidst the beautiful fields
and groves of dreamland. I'tlorly
helpless are nil these tired souls, and
tho big man In u blue uniform thinks
of the day past with its tolls und lh(
coming day of labor, then almost
aauud hw bids them sle<?p pS&Cefnll)
and dream of bsautlfts aussen oxcepl

It is our sincere hope that you will enjoy to the fullest extent the results of
this regime, and that the year Nineteen Hundred and Nine may be to you
one of health and happiness.
