Socialist members from the New York state assembly,
although the expulsion is a violation of the Bill of Rights,
un-American and destructive of liberty. -
If Socialists can be ousted, merely because their pol
itical tenets do not meet the approval of the Republican
majority, so ca nthe Democrats, whose opinions are equal
ly distastefuland so can Republicans in states where
Democrats are in a majority. Political toleration the
safe-guarding of the rights of the minority, are funda
mental principles of the republic. Violation, under what
ever excuse, is fatal to democracy.
That the action of the New York assembly is recog
nized as a danger signal is shown by the storm of protest
aroused in the east The New York bar association, un
der the leadership of such eminent Republicans as Charles
E. Hughes and George W. Wickersham has adopted reso
lutions declaring that the action "destroys the very foun
dations of representative government, and appointed a
committee, headed by Judge
ing the political rights of Socialist assemblymen and their
constituentsa committee the
to participate in the hearings.
The expulsion is recognized, no; as the fight of the
Socialists, but as the fight of every citizen who believes in
representative government. That such action is possible,
shows how far the nation is drifting away from the ideals
of its founders, lhat it is done

Cuffy Bear must have spent as much

bees Cuffy wa3 following lighted on an
old tree, and Cuffy saw him crawl into
a hole in a queer nest which hung from

there looking up at the nest, he saw
as many as seven bees come out of

How Much More Tobacco
Will My Heart Standi
A Question Vital Ta Eyery Man Who Smokes Or Chews
May Cost Life to Hnd Out
The heart of every user of tobacco
tears a double burden. It does its al
lotted task and then fights nicotine
for supremacy. As long as the heart
wins he lives; when it loses he dies, but
before the final victory of nicotine
you pass through many stages of de
fine and decay and suffsr many pangs
Hearts sre like human beiugs some
are stronger than others, therefore
some hearts will stand more tobacco
-nan others, but there is a limit to
what any heart can stand. Tho man
who puts this additional strain on his
heart a dozen times a day by smoking
cigarettes, a pipe or cigars or chew
ing tobacco b taking a madman '
nance with health and life to lose
and nothing to win but the chance that
he may lose them He is indulging in
a costly habit at the expense of pre
cious health. Ask any doctor anywhere,
and he will tell you that using tobacco
is injurious and that it is far better to
quit the .hnbit than to experiment to
find out how much tobacco our heart
will Btand without serious results.
But the thought of quitting is un
pleasant to most men even to those
who know that tobacco injures thetn
and to really quit takes more will pow
er than they have and eauseg more
suffering than they can voluntarily en
dure. To qnit the habit, make it easy
for yourself by getting Nicotol tablets
