Noyra had bewime A drunkard He hsd thrcntrned to kii: any offlcfr who attrmptrd to arrest him. When tafctn he had A gun in WiidiiiOM. He was too far gono to use it. which saved a tragedy. So while the wets wall nnd d«- Jiounce prohibition fanaticism Noyes goes to the pen for life because he has spent most of the Isst. thirty years In prison nnd Is n habitual criminal, dangerous to )>e at large. That was what ^he Michigan and the New York laws contempln ted— that rAen who are a source of danger to society because of their criminality and prl.son sentences—shall be placed where they are no longer a menace to the peace of the state. Having the white mule was simply the last straw. He was sentenced for being nn habitual criminal. H Was considered cheaper and easier and better to keep him away from society. But how the wet papers will rave and talk only of getting life for a "gallon of moonshine." Not one of them will tell the truth that hp goes for life for his record of years of crime. Is This Tolerance or Intolerance? "There does not exist a more degraded band of professional liars than can be found wearing th« sarto of Clergymen In the northern part of Illinois. "We make these assertions knowing and feeling Ite full and sweeping extent, but facts and the truth will sustain it beyond a possibility of question. , • "There are exceptions — there are clergymen in Chicago and northern Illinois who are models of Christian piety, but there are others who have not only become professional llara. but W!K> have become utterly lost to shame. "Melancholy, humiliating, sickening as is tha consciousness of thla fact, yet a blind political fury, wild and reckfe&s lanacUcJcm. sustains these men in their conduct, and must eventually lead both people and preachers Into the gulf of temporal as well as eternal ruin." The above Is an editorial taken from, a Chicago daily. Would you call it an expres- ""auri 'of tolerance • or Intolerance? Think it over and Wednesday The Gazette will tell the name of the paper uttering such abuse and the prime cause of the same. This clipping will give thinking folks something to consider In connection with the present campaign. Hoover's Broad Mindedneaa Hoover's * statement in Saturday's Issue against bringing the religious Issue into the campaign will nave the approval of all fair minded men and women. Hoover and the Republican management have tried keep »w»y Irom any semblance of religious eon- troYearsy ia Hie "caiupaign. He made a better statement of his PtUtuda on the subject in twenty 4iPc«-4hatt-<3evernor-Smtth~dtd~1n a half hour In his Oklahoma speech. That of ttwlf shows th» difference In the two can- <Udatea. Smith is a man of words—many of theua. Hoover is a man of very few* words— but « man of action. While the governor is talking about doing things— Hoover is ths type that wUl get them dooe.

SIDE TALKS FROM A SCRAP OF CLOTH (Ruth Cameron) We heard some tntere-sting news thfe other day. ' , News about oneself, you see, is always Interesting. Especially when it is complete news. 1 1 suppose that word comes from new, though I actunlly had never thought o£ It until that moment.) We heard we were going to sell our house. Th« Informant knew in what us;ent's hands it had been plsmf And exactly the price usked.

I think it is truly marvellous to discover how complete a rumor can be made out of whole cloth. Or rather out of uo cloth at all. Though, on second thought, there was one tiny scrap v1 cloth. Just this much: We had said that if certain annoying conditions should develop to a jwlnt where they were unbearable we should put up the house for sale. But they hadn't developed, they had abated. And presumably from that small scrap all this complete tale had been evolved,. It goes him one .to Uiirik, dofieri't it? And to realise that, tales one hears about other people may have not one bit more basis. Even when the teller declares h^ has them first hand. (The teller in this e*s« told our informant that he had it OB perfectly good auUiority,~~tiuit oi the agent who was lutnd- frobaWy Just Ac uu on the verga of aeeepUns &s true a surprising piece of information about a neif liter because it appenreS to corns direct, I realize now how foolish I was. since it tioubtleis iu.fl no more ioundatioii than this rumor.
