Trouble that spreads to intolerance amonp neighbors:, and intolcr- .imp among nations. From where I sit, yon ran put your faith in the family that lives and lets live—where Pa enjoys his smoke ami maybe a mellow glass of beer or two; and Ma wears funny looking bats and likes 'em; and Sis grows u|> as healthfully full of spirits as .1 child should be.
