Our "Parcel Post" is improving

ment, etc., but practically nothing
has been done to improve and extend
the service of the government bank.
What in your opinion is the reason
of the government limiting an ac
count to $500, a deposit in a month
limited to $100 and the reason it can
not afford to pay 3 per cent interest?
It seems to me that it is merely regu

REPLIES TO JANE ADDAMS
Editor Day Book: Permit me to
say a few words in regard to Jane
Addams' statement on child labor.
We have several kind of reformers,
and each kind want some law enact
ed for this or that evil, but it seems
that all these laws are to reform evil,
not to abolish it. We don't need a
federal child labor law. We have a
universal love. That law is parent
love. No mother will send her chil
dren to work unless-she has to choose
between sending them to work or see
ing them starve at home.
Child labor is mostly spread where
the fathers are getting the lowest
kind of wages, and that speaks for
itself. There are degenerate parents.
This is true, but they should be cured
with education, not punished with
Some reformers want a minimum
wage law for women to cure vice, but
when the fathers"will get enough to
support their families they will not
send their children to work. And if
all young men will get enough to
support families there will be more
happy marriages than old maids. And
Barratt O'Hara's honeymoon express
will not be needed. Henry Ford's em
ployes have proven this.
If you reformers are sincere in your
work,, then why don'Jt youunite to en
'act aTlaw. to' give back To men their
natural right which some crooked
men of power have taken away from
them and that is, the right to work
and the right to get the full product
of their labor? This law would hit
evil at the root, this law would abol
ish the real cause of all evil, and
the only reason that I can see why
you don't unite" is, some of you are
blind and some wish to be blind.

Failure exists only in the grave
boys being ailive whether they are
gobd or bad had not yet failed:
Seek comrades among the indus

will sap your energies from you.
The world belongs to you, your es
tate, you must fear nothing, not even
the police, ask for no privileges, but
Whatever you desire of good is
yours, you have to stretch forth your
hands and take it.
Ask qf no man permission to per

Fear nothing dread at nothing
