Why should a man write himsellf a fool by passing judgment, w^en the judgment of today is appealed tomorrow and tlhe court of public decision turns it all upside down? It's better to follow old Admiral Sigabee's advice and suspend judg ment. If we suspend it long enough we won't decide anything— definitely. First the world was flat, and that was right. Now it's round and that is right. Every thing changes. Even modesty and morals are geographical. When you sum it up only Truth and Justice are fixed, so perhaps it's ibest to spend our time getting rid of their counterfeits and establishing what we are sure will last. Where do we get pounding some poor devil for obeying a driving force he has not the power to overcome when we might switch him down a different track and make his steam turn mill wheels instead of tread mills? YOUR GOAT. If your radiator haa "got your goat," ithen you are looking for ua. We'll make It give your goat back and put it in good order at the same time. Why not give us a trial?
