rottenness in public affairs and such

deny that a large proportion of the

and that their views or morality are
not founded on superstition, but on the
experience of the ages.
Nobody of any experience in public
affairs believes there is any mercy 01 01-goodness

Arbuckle a chance to "come back."
The truth is that a large number of
Arbuckle films were made before the
debauch that brought him into unsav unsavory
ory unsavory notoriety, and the owners of the
films; in the wave of wrath that
swept the country when Arbuckle's
infamy was known, knew it would not
do to exhibit them. These men are of
the same breed who profiteered on our
country during the war. They would
reduce our American manhood to
serfdom, they would sell our Ameri American

do anything that the vilest mind could
conceive, to make money. And Will
Hays is their tool. They don't care care-three

Christ said, "Go and sin no more."

Fellow citizens, nearly every person
in America from ten years up has
heard of the infamy of Arbuckle. How
do you like the idea of your wife or
sweetheart or sister, your little boy
or girl, attending a movie and seeing
the face of Fatty Arbuckle on the
screen, and subconsciously calling to
mind the filth he wallowed in and the
murder for which he came in the

We Arc Able to Perceive the
Blue in the Sky
The reason why :he sky is blue was
found out by Prof. John Tyndall (1S20 (1S20-1S93),
1S93), (1S20-1S93), the famous British physicist.
In explaining this. The Book of
Knowledge" (edited by Arthur Mee of
Temple Chambers, London, and Hol Holland
land Holland Thompson, Ph. D., of the College
of the City of New York) says: The
sky gets its light from the sun. When
the sun is away, the sky Is dark.
Therefore, the blue of the sky must be
somehow thrown to our eyes from
something In the sky which keeps all
the other colors in the white light of
the sun, and throws back the blue;
and that Is what happens. The sky is
filled with countless tiny specks
which we may call dust specks of
solid stuff hanging in the air. These
are of Just such a size that they
catch the bigger waves of light, which
make the other colors, but throw to
our eyes the shorter waves of light,
which make blue. If you could do
away with all the solid stuff In the
air, the sky would be dark, and all the
Hght of the daytime would come di directly
rectly directly from the sun. Skylight is re reflected

Who does not know the trillium?
All the parts to this flower are ar arranged

petals, three sepals, and a tripartite j
seed case. 1
Some trilliums stand up dear and j
white, others bend their heads. Some, j
like the painted trilliums, grow in clus- j
ters of delicate white and purple
flowers. When walking through the
woods in early spring you sometimes
find a purple trillium. Bend down and
smell it. The chances are that it
smells like carrion.
'Why do you ask me to sniff such a
scent," you protest. "Odor is all a
matter of viewpoint," I answer. "We
call some odors perfumes Qd some
