No, public opinion isn't much to be feared. It isn't educated. If it were educated it would be a power for good. For then it would condemn a rich man who got his wealth by underpaying his employes. It'would point the finger of scorn at the slave driver as he passed along the boulevard in his automobile. It would refuse to recognize as a desirable citizen the department store owner who paid below-the-bread-line wages to clerks. It would ostracize the kept- judge who turned and twisted the law to help special privilege rob anybody of justice. It would refuse to speak to the lawyer who sold his talent to selfish interests to show them how to commit moral crimes and still keep out of prison. It would condemn as a moral leper, unfit for human association, the man who enriched himself with child labor. It would denounce as a murderer the mine owner who hired mine guards to, shoot down miners and their wives and children. It would brand as unclean the minister of the gospel who was afraid to follow in the footsteps of Christ for fear he might offend the rich hypo crites of his congregation. A public opinion that will stand for the Rockefellers, Morgans, Car negies, Fields, Armours, Pullmans and their kind will stand for all the Cam inettis that bob up and get caught. : o o HYGIENE DELEGATES SEE THE MOVIES ON TOOTHACHE Buffalo, N.

In parts of Amer ica we take any old thing, dried, pow dered, or in the raw, for it, so long as it's labelled and recommended by somebody who didn't die from it.
