The true worth of a nation is In its virtuous, sober citizenship; no deca dence causes such evil results as docs the decadence of virtue, and tor the perpetuity of family and national life It is necessary that men and women shall be equally pure and .virtuous. Comrades, let us work fr the educa tion of our people until there shall be a revolution In social conditions fur which in a great measure woman is responsible. Let us away with Hie double standard of morality. Let us teach the boys and all the world that vice is vice as black and abhorrent In men as jn women. Let us teach thai, a fallen woman is no more fallen lb m a fallen man. There Is no sex in dis honor. Sin leaves the same foul stain on masculine or lemlnlne soul. Lei us abolish forever the double stand ard and teach men and women alike to demand and give honor for honor, purity for purity, truth for truth. Union Signal. Accidentally Shot Himself.
