THE DUTIES OF A GOOD CITIZEN
Edmonton, Alta., July 17.—“Whai
are some of the most Important du
ies of a good citizenV was a ques
tion asked of Harold Mason, a 1
years’ old pupil in the sixth grade at
he Alexander Taylor public school
of Edmonton. IEs answer, which won
the coveted promotion at the examin
ation, a few days ago, follows:
“A good citizen should never vote
for a ma-ji who is a ‘grafter,’ because
he will put all tue money in his
pocket, neglect his duties and not try
to make the city prosper
“He should vc*e against the li
quor traffic and never touch It. He
should never use profane language,
and he will always willingly help
the poor and needy.
“He should vote toward paving
streets and try to make his city a
good place to live in. He should have
good schools and send his children
to i‘hem.
“He would try to stop the armies
from having money to spend op ships
of war, aud not heve war, but turn
It over to the cities o make them
beautiful.
"Then there would be sewers, wa
ter works, telephones and electric
lights all over the city.
“He ?hould encourage the biuldin*
of nice bungalows and fine ho els.
have no tents, make the people clean
up their yards and have lawna with
beautiful flowers.
“When be found a man out of work
|he would try to get him a job. and
;then he would be what I call a real
good citizen.’*
