' FLAGS OF OUR ALLIES III COLORS FOR VOUR STAtiOItERY In the present crucial period many of our friends will wish to have the . flags of France, England, Cuba and the United States appear on their correspondence stationery, printed In the national colors. Having anticipated your-desire we are prepared to supply the need. We will send you 1Q0 note heads, size 6x8, and fifty, size 6,' envelopes, each printed on good quality of paper, for only $1.00. 'There is no other printing on this stationery except the flags of the nations mentioned. Order today from The Menace, Aurora, Missouri .

V Yes, wo are going "over the top" with The Menace Debt Fund, and we are going to do it long before the mortgage on the institution falls due. It will only tako forty thousand dollars to put the biggest printing establishment and the greatest organ of publicity in the whole world permanently into the hands and ownership of the patriots of this coun try who are fighting to make the world safe for democracy and to make America a safe country to live in. . The campaign was launched only about six weeks ago and the flnanmnl nmr rmhlishcd n the masthead box of this issue shows that we had nearly half the required amount on the 19th of October. The Menace goes to. press a full week ahead of the dato of issue, which makes our reports two weeks behind, but wo can assure you that the next report will bo a solar plexus for the hierarchy, as it will show that the contributions are coming at a rate that insures victory within a few weeks,. j The sum of $16,639.12 is a mighty good showing for six weeks' work, especially when the most of that work was done by circularizing friends of the cause. Very little has been said in the paper about this campaign, and when you consider that this is the first time we have given our friends any idea of how the campaign was progressing, you are bound to admit that the showing is phenomenal.

True, he has not himself come out for reform but he has his stool pigeon flying the reform flag. Ana not mucn or a reform nag either. Pigeon Sproul has simply declared that Pennsylvania ought to ratify the amendment and that if elected he will do what he can to secure the ratification by the Pennsylvania leg islature. He hasn't said anything against the liquor traffic. He has his understanding with the liquor people. No one had heard him taking any active steps to help in the election of candidates for the legislature that will ratify. In his own city there is only one DRY candidate, but Sproul wants wet Ramsey and not dry Hen dricks to represent his city in the legislature. No, Sproul's reform is camouflage, pure camouflage, and a very poorly concealed camouflage at that. VOTE FOR FITHIAN FOR GOVERNOR OP PENNSYLVANIA. England Bans Papal Press The British government under stands -popery. The ceaseless whin ing of the Roman Catholic hierarchy and press about religious prejudice does not deceive Lloyd George and his associates. They are well aware that the scientific mendacity of Jes uitism is more dangerous than hon est citizens and newspapers that ex pose its falsehoods. Enelish statesmen etuilv fathom the transparent dishonesty of the Roman Catholic nrctense of lovaltv to both the papal autocrat and popu lar government which that autocrat condemn. They see clearlv that the hierarchy and Dress of Rome seek to betray the cause of democracy wmie leigning patriotism. Consequently the British war of fice has issued an order barring from the mails The Catholic Times of London, which had the largest cir culation and was the most unblush ing and influential mouthpiece of iiuycry in uie oriUHfl ISieS. IXHldOn thus answers the treason Of the Sinn Fein under direction of the nnnal hierarchy; the treason of Monsignor Gerlach in the nanal household: t.ha treason of Bolo Pasha in London, Dublin, and Paris with a letter of recommendation from the pope in his pocket; and the sedition in Roman Catholic Quebec.

President Wilson himself has said of them, in addressing the " teachers chosen for the year 1918-19x : P . "The spirit . of American democ racy is a hentaee cherished and transmitted by public education." And yet every well informed read er knows that popery erects its own scnoois and berates Catholics who send their children to the public schools instead of her own scnoois. In fact Rome holds as unfit to receive the sacraments, all Catholic parents who send their children to the pub lic schools when a parochial school is available. This in itself is an illustration of how she holds her people in line and defeats the purpose of democratic Institutions through her religious garb. Can you conscientiously vote for "the relisrious enemies of our schools 7" - In their constant attacks on the public schools, Roman Catholic pa pers alleged that no' religion is taught in those schools. But anv suggestion that the Bible be read in the public schools elicit from these papers volumes of brimstone and fire. What they really demand is that beads, relics and other degrading superstitions be introduced. The schools of Mexico have been in papal hands four hundred years. Hobson's Choice in Nebraska We have information to the ef fect that both candidates for con gress in the sixth congressional district are papist3. It's up to you to choose between them and redeem the situation by nominating at least one non-Catholic next time. If you wait for the political bosses to pick the next candidates you will prob ably have papists for congress again. The American's Creed I believe in the United States of America as a government of the peo ple, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a de mocracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union, one and inseparable, established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice, and hu manity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes, I, therefore, believe it is my duty to my country to krve it. to support Propagandists of Rome In Balti more ana Washington had planned to hitch up Cardinal Gibbons with the Knioht of Columbus October 12 in a great political demonstration be cause the cardinal has been fifty years a papal prince and politician. But the influensa struck the coun try with such violence that the other papal virus had to be abandoned. So the political demonstration went up the flue. After the war, armies of Roman priests and nuns will make a per petual and world-wide drive . 'for funds to replenish the depleted Vati can coffers.. Before the people pour out their money for this purpose, let the Vatican books be audited by ex pert accountants not under papal control, so the public may know if the kaisers and the sultan have been fi nanced from Rome. The progress of popery toward liberal ideals is much like a dog chas ing his tail. The old gal just goes "round and 'round and never rets anywhere. . Report From Boise. Idaho The following are the only can didates on the state ticket known to be papists: E. G. Gallet, for state .auditor ; John F. Nugent, candidate for sena tor, short term. The correspondent says D. W. Da vis for governor should be defeated and points out that the democratic nominee, H, H, Samuels is heartily endorsed by the non-cart isan leatrue Support of Samuels is strongly urged. ... At the funeral of the late Cardinal Farley four Roman Catholic prelates showed their hatred of democratic in stitutions by looking down on official and private citizens of the republic from thrones erected for that pur pose. But the timely deith and fun eral of The National Hibernian, of ficial newspaper organ of the Irish papists in this country, has plunged those papists in Pennsylvania and throughout the country into a war of recrimination against one another that rival n rpcVless fury the Hun war on civilization. The Roman Catholic press devotes about half its editorial space to cussing Governor Catts of Florida. When Governor Kilby enters the executive mansion in Alabama next January the Roman papers will have to lay in a few extra fonts of typo wherewith to print cuss words.

Popery is do ing all in its power to maintain its po litical control and will make Cleveland another Catholic city if it continues to succeed. Eomanism has shipped thousands of for- vhich to hold her. subjects and 6hov7 them that .3 it is to their advantage to labor in the interest of her politicians. No weapon Is so good as the one which says to the lav Catholic, "Here lies your o spiritual welfare and here you get the job that mean8 bread and meat for you and your family." .home can truthfully say this to her minions ciyncrs into Cleveland .and has visions of popu latins and making the town Catholic throuarh in Cleveland today.

But , . 1 whether they ore centralized to direct their ef-. rg aVent -for the Buildinir Trades' Council, and forts for popery or become Teal Americans de pends on whether they are trained in Cleveland's public schools or in Rome's parochial schools. Good papists aro trained in tho pope's schools. Good Americans are educated in the public ! schools. Rome is fast extending her vast pa rochial school system in her endeavor to be able to train all of these youngsters in her own way.. You Protestants can work for the public schools with a better aim in view and profit by it. But the only way to do the job right is to keep papists out of office and particularly out of positions where they either interpret, make or administer the law for if you put them irr such positions they will use the law and their powers as best suits the church and its aim to make Cleveland a Catholic city. Trained always to look to the priest who un derstands their language and . customs, because hp, too, is their kind, these immigrants are going to follow the lead of the church unless you take the henchmen of that church out of the lead and sufficiently safeguard your schools. You must look to' the best interest of those immigrants but you can't do it by letting Rome get in her John A. Penton. heart of the Penton Publishing Co.,", employers' representative. - Rev. Father Moran has been chosen chiefly, the board said last night, because while he was in touch i with both capitalist and labor elements in the narish 1 of his church, one of the largest in the city, he has never been allied with an organiaztion of either type. Due to the illness of Mr. Malley, the organi zation meeting of the board has not yet been set, but it. will probably take place within a few days. . All the handling of unskilled labor in the Cleve land district, comprising Cuyahoira, Geausra, Lake and Medina counties, will be directed by this board and the executive managers of the new federal em ployment offices here. The organization of the new board marks the end of promiscuous recruiting of labor. One of the problems to be met 'by the new . committee is the replacement of approximately s 20.000 Cleveland workmen between 19 and 87 who will be subject to selective draft. Five more federal emploment offices will be : opened here soon. The district at present has two. There you are folks in plain black and white.
