5 - years ago Hammurabi wrote a
code of moral laws, upon this
code the laws or decalogue, of the

law-making and justice over the
people who lived 4,000 years ago?

Rheumatic Pain Stopped.
The drawing of muscles, the sore
ness, stiffness and agonizing pain of
Rheumatism quickly yield to Sloan's
Liniment. It stimulates circulation
to the painful part. Just apply as di
rected to the painful part. Just ap
ply as directed to the sore spots. In
a short time the pain gives way to a
tingling sensation of comfort and
warmth. Here's proof"I have had
wonderf nf relief since I used your Lin
iment on my knee. To think one ap
plication gave me relief. Sorry I hav

A nation is madejgreat, not by
its fruitful acres, tut by the men
who cultivate them; not by its
great forests, but by the men
who usejthem; not by its mines,
but by the f men who work in
them; not by its railways, but by
the men who build andrunthem.
America was agreat land when
Columbus discovered it; Amer
icans havejmade of it a great Na
tion. In 1776our fathers had a vis
ion oj a new Nation "conceived
in liberty and dedicated to the
proposition that all men are cre
ated equal." Without an army
they fought the greatest of ex
isting world empires that they
might realize this vision. A
third of a century later, without
a navy they fought the greatest
navy in the world that they
might win for their Nation the
freedom of the seas. Half a cen
tury later they fought through
an unparalleled Civil War that
they might establish for all time
on this continent the inalienable
right of life, liberty and the pur
suit of happiness. A third
of a century later thsy fought
to emancipate an oppressed
neighbor, and, victory won, gave

The Living Wage.
It has been said that certain
well to do land owners in this
country pay the men who work
for them on the larm such a
small wages that the man of a
family can hardly buy the nec
essaries of life and as a conse
quence the poor man, his wife
and children enjoy few of the
comforts of life and are often
the victims of diseases brought
on by exposure and the lack of
sufficient substantial food and
proper medicines when needed.
We have in mind no specific
case but it is a matter worth
considering; for besides the fact
that the laborer is worthy of his
hire it is bad business
To thus treat human, beings.
The Golden Rule should be ap
plied. A man who would con
demn a corporation for under
paying overworked shop girls
should not assume a holier than
thau attitude while doing the
same thing in another way.
Live and let live is a good motto.
Every man who does honest
work is entitled to a living wage.
