He is a friend of mine. And don't be too hard on Johndee and that bunch, for they were all raised pets.

Send me a few samples and watch the subs, come-in from Gridley. A Sermon to the Common Plugs. Hello, you Common Plugs! I mean you fellows who toil and tug and sweat for a bare existence in order that you may sustain a system that confers upon others the blessed privi lege of piling up millions and enjoy ing all the luxuries arid blessings of life. You not only deny yourselves, but allow your children to go in rags and uneducated in order to show your great generosity to the fellows who draw the salaries and pile up .the wealth through special legislation. Such self-sacrifice was never known. Of course it is charged that you vote that way because you are a party man because you belong to this or that political party. But4 of course you don't do any such thing. You don't care a continental for' party; do you 'i You just vote that way because you would rather see somebody else's chil dren wear fine clothes than'ytrar own; because you would rather see 'another man's wife ride in a buggy than your own. Of course you know - your own wife and children' wouldn't look well in society. It is their lot to wear rags, and' to ; labor- and toil and sweat that other "people ' may live in" luxury and easeAndit-isyour duty to vote to sustain a system that -will' compel them to doi so. j TV Thec average production of those whd? labbi is about seven dollars' a day!

He is long on gener osity and obedience to tlje party boss,, and short on nothing ..but common sense, devotion to his family, money, . property, and a. few other things., He'll have his reward when he dies ; because he'll have nothing to leave -that he cares for, ji and will have the; sweet consolation of going to a place where he won't have to sweat any worse than he has on earth. At the Sign of the Question Mark.. This is a time of interrogation. . . Everywhere men are asking "Why?' Modern life is fairly bristling with, question marks. ' We are asking why, in one American city, fifty thousand women are work ing for less than living wages? When a man can do the labor oti one hundred men, why do women and1 little children Lhave to work through, the long day, or into the dead hours, of the night for bread? Why is so much of the burden of" taxation passed on to the consumer of the bare, necessities of life? Why should one man make a thous and million dollars, while millions of; men have not enough to buy tomor row's bread? Why is our government, instituted! for the benefit of all, the ally of a few Why has. this shield for the weak, become the weapon of the strong? j Why should men prepare for war instead of peace? If the fault is in the system why not change it? j If it is in the men, we paint tne flowers tOi our taste and make the beasts of the field grow as we will then why should we not by education and environment make better men? We have learned to fly like birds and swim like fish why should we not learn to live like brothers? These and a thousand other ques tions are being asked, but asked in a new spirit a spirit of scientific can dor, of honest endeavor. So long as we only asked why men. died with yellow fever, Havana was. ; a pest-house and the Panama : Canal -was an imposibility. But when we- asked why men had yellow fever, the- cause was cuscoverea inside the mos quito and destroyed. And now Havana is' a health resort and two oceans join in celebrating the, discovery. We are hot dhly asking1 why k fever or unrest makes an unhappy people ' but we are asking why the f evef exists? ? c appiiug Bcienimc inquiry to the lives' and goverihmehf of7 men whlch; meins tnatr: nothing Islob bid ; 1 oi- too weir established' to oe ques tioned. ... ! ; ' ,;" ' f Every path of progress is pared with interfogatidn points.
