your camp on the premises ; tnd
pitch your little tent you get straight
ened out on tbe matter In a manner
that leaves no room for discussion.
Moreover, If you feel calledOn to
"amoke up" you can get Into trouble
easier by sneaking in on the back
lota of the postofflce siteith your
exhaling propaganda than in most
any other way. A , number of very
respectable citizens can testify that
these things are true. You want
to keep away from the band wagon
when you go down to pay your re
spects to the government for the
boss on the job is no respecter of
persons and any one who even gives
the suspicion of getting, in the way
or of contaminating the force gets
tbe books in short order. '
