How can a government that de

that its citizens will deceive it when
it is in need?
By the way, did you ever notice
that recruiting stations are hardly

ON CLEANING UP. Dr. Robert
son: You have set the 26th day of
April, 1916, as a cleaning day
through the entire city of Chicago.
You have advised the people what to
do and how to do it and when to
start. You have spoken about
germs and flies and bad air.
But you have forgotten to tell the
people of Chicago how to clean out
the city hall of graft and rotten pol
itics. You never have said a word
about the bad air, flies and germs we
have in the City HalL A. a
SWITCHING. The men on the
Wabash were 86 per cent switchmen
and the trainmen took the schedule
for concessions with a 75 per cent
clause, which meant that 61 per

The trainmen are not only scab
bing on the switchmen but are scab
bing on scabs, as scab pay is $10,
while trainmen are getting $3.50 to
$4. The Wabash trainmen have
armed guards at their heels at all
. times, which is a badge of dishonor.
They have repeatedly worked under
the protection of Pinkertons.
This is not the first time that the
trainmen, firemen and enginemen
have worked together when switch
men were on strike.
The S. U. of N. A. has always stood
for principle and proudly hold affilia

Labor, which the trainmen cannot
affiliate with, owing to their past

MARY WAVERLY AND MAX.
With the keenest enjoyment I have
followed the "Confession of a Wife"
from its very beginning, and when
the story closes I shall feel I have
said "Good-by" to very dear friends.
It was with a feeling of disappoint
ment I gazed upon the picture of
Mary Waverly in The Day Book.
My conception of Mary is so very dif
ferent What a splendid appearance.
Not too tall, with a form beautifully
proportioned; a mass of brown hair
on a shapely head, well poised above
a round, slender throat; eyes, large,
soft and brown, but showing, when
roused, decided spirit; a shapely nose
above beautifully-curved lips, ready
to smile in spite of the disappoint
ments of life.
A woman of Mary Waverly's type
would never Bhow her true age. She
might be 32 in year, but not in ap
pearance. Her sweet, womanly ways,
her keen interest in life and objects
about her, her ready sympathy for
others and hopeful outlook on life
would keep her young in appearance.
It is when a woman frets and wor
ries over little difficulties; when her
husband, children, friends and home
duties comprise a narrow circle in
which she travels, that age tells on
a woman. She must develop her
mind, cultivate her talents and keep
in touch with the big things in the
world all these things will keep her
spirit young, and if the spirit is
young the body will have a young
The impression I have of Max Pen
dleton is that he is a man of more
serious habits than men of his age
generally are; a man who reads
much, thinks much. He and Mary
have much in common. Both are
fond of books and art Their minds
are equally well developed, and, after
all, equality of mentality and not
equality of age counts the mo&t.
