Think of You

Your work is judged not only when the job is finished, but as long as it lasts. The longer it lasts the longer your customers think of you with favor.

Murphy Varnish

"the varnish that lasts longest"

now costs no more than other good varnishes. But it lasts longer, beautifies and preserves the wood and metal more effectively, and is the easiest to apply and rub. Finally, it covers more surface to the can.

A bad job can be done with poor varnish and, until dry, looks something like a good varnish job. But it begins to perish immediately it dries and, letting go its grip, checks and chips off. Your customers will then feel like inviting you out to-pray.

[blocks in formation]

Those corpses of young men,
Those martyrs that hang from the gibbets—those hearts

pierced by gray lead,
Cold and motionless as they seem, live elsewhere with

unslaughtered vitality.
They live in other young men, O kings!
They live again in brothers ready to defy you!
They were purified by death—they were taught and exalted.

Not a grave of the murdered for freedom, but grows seed

for freedom, in its turn to bear seed,
Which the winds carry afar and resow, and the rains and

the snows nourish.

Not a disembodied spirit can the weapons of tyrants let loose,
But it stalks invisibly over the earth, whispering, counciling,


Liberty ! let others despair of you! I never despair of you;
Is the house shut? Is the master away?
Nevertheless, be ready-be not weary of watching;
He will return soon-his messengers come anon.


Proclamation issued by the Independent Labor Party of England

[ocr errors]

HILST the battle rages with advance

and retreat, it would be premature to work out detailed proposals for

just settlement. There must be a truce to the fighting before we can get down to the precise policy that must govern the peace. But it is not a moment too soon to rid our minds of hate, self-righteousness, pharisaism, and the cant of jingoism, to look at the European tragedy with clear knowledge and understanding, and to piece together the points that might form a basis for discussion. Nor will this be accomplished by windy rhetoric. The more extreme and violent our demands on this side, the more we close the door on common sense and restraint, the more we countenance the crushing of Germany--if that were possible—and the destruction of her trade, the more we strengthen Prussian militarism, and play the game of the goosestepping, saber-rattling junkers.

There are many people in Germany opposed to the designs and aggressions of Prussian junkerdom, but there is nobody in Germany who would consent to the destruction of Germany and the ruin of her industry. All the wild words that appear in some of the newspapers of the Allied nations--words frequently insincere and meaningless and

written without serious intent-help to rally and consolidate the militarist forces in Germany, and to silence or drown the voices pleading bravely for sanity and moderation. As things are, the jingoes in the enemy countries bark and howl against each other, hurling threats and insults at each other across the frontiers.

edy in the antics of these venerable fools were there not also deep tragedy.

Many of the old men who watch the young men going valiantly to death are themselves held by false ideals and aims. They do not know wherein lies the true greatness and glory of a country. They have filled their hearts with the dust and cinders of hate, and have persuaded themselves that by smashing another country they can advantage their own. In comparative safety they roar their defiance and close their minds against any consideration of a just and honorable peace, and talk boastfully of the day when the Allied troops will march down the Unter den Linden, and denounce as pro-German every idea that is beyond the range of their own crude brain.

And since the perfecting of the mechanism of war and the deadly raking fire of machine guns has made the defensive almost impregnably strong, and the aggressive costly beyond measure, the war, if these old men had their way, would never end, or would end when the young manhood of Europe had entirely perished, and Europe been bankrupt beyond recovery.


Dignity in Soldiers' Hearts. In the hearts of the soldiers is no such corrupting rage as possesses the souls of old men sitting in their clubs , and editorial chairs. Among the soldiers there is discipline and dignity, but many newspapermen and politicians and publicists have no more dignity than dancing Dervishes. They mistake their funk for patriotism, their bluster for righteous wrath, and they imagine in some strange fashion that their noisy vulgarities contribute to the cause of their country. There would be light com

No Peace From Old Men. Peace, a worthy, lasting peace, will never come back to blood-sodden Europe if we leave the matter to these inflamed minds. Kaisers, czars, emperors, diplomats, rulers, what have we to expect from them? Nothing but wretchedness and slaughter. It is not they who will teach us a better way to adjust the quarrels between nations. If we are to enjoy tthe blessings of a real peace, not a peace armed and costly, not a peace which is not more than a brief, uneasy pause in the roar of cannon, not a peace covering as with a garment much fraud and inequality and shame, but a peace shining and resplendent, a peace that carries the fighting spirit to the moral and intellectual plane, a peace that makes of the individual and national life no dull, stagnant thing, but a great, stirring adventure, peace that has its victories more renowned than war, if such a peace, the only peace that is worth while, is to come, it is the workers and none but they, who will usher it in.
