They know who gets soused and they know the ladies who deviate from the straight and narrow path of rectitude, and the boys who smoke In the alleys and dark places, and the girls who are out auto riding un til the roosters crow for daylight They know the fellows that are good to pay and they know the fellow that cannot get trusted for a tobacco sack full of salt They could guess at once why some fellows are as they are and they can guess closely what they do to make themselves so. They know enough to make one of the red-hottest rip-snorting, high-geard, triple ac tion, chaln-llghnlng edltons you ev t read, but they also know it la beat for the community and themselves to let the law take care of humanity's developsm ent and publish such newa that will do to read in the house.
