A Brooklyn preacher hands i
out in this fashion : "Who can
doubt that mothers are off the
job when they allow their young
daughters to paint their faces
and to wear the sort of clothes
we have seen everywhere in the
last two or three seasons? To
say mothers can't control their
daughters is even worse. It's an
acknowledgement of disgraceful
failure that no grown woman
should be obliged to make. We
are living today in a pandemonium
of powder, a riot of rouge, a
moral anarchy of dress. When
will women learn that the only
"aids to beauty" are absolute
cleanliness, proper . food, proper
exercise, abundant sleep, fresh
air and an unselfish character ?
Another matter on which they
are gone stark mad is the modern
barbarous dance. The new dan
ces are but an indication that the
suspicion of immorality does no
trouble some people. And so you
will find girls who, there is every
, reason to think, are good girls,
vet hnva hefme infwtprt with
the easy-going spirit of the world
about them, and will participate
in dances that ought to make
them blush for shame. It is
beside the question' for them to
sry that they do not mean any
harm, that it is all done in the
spirit of fun, and soon." John
son City Staff.
There should be no doubt about
congress ordaining monthlv pay

5vernment from the president
,,-n. can bo paid -their stipends
every calendar month, the vet
eran and his widow should be
treated the same way. There is
no more reason lor their having
to wait three months for their
payment than there is for con
gressmen, senators, the cabinet
officers and president. If these
officials need their big salaries
every thirty days, the veterans
and widows have call for their
little stipends at as brief and
regular intervals. -Let congress
