Now how on earth did those four
Electrical Workers employed by Wa
ter Commissioner Tyler learn that
The Wageworker opposed Mr. Tyler's
re-election? Not one of them is a
subscriber to The Wageworker. and
so far as the memory of the pub
lisher goes not one of them ever
was a subscriber. Must havegood

Tomorrow. May !. is "Mothers" Hay."
Every son of a good mother and

should, and will, wear a white flower
on that day. White is the emblem of
purity and there is nothing purer
than the love our sainted mothers
bore or bear for us. Just a simple
little tribute, this thing of wearing a
white flower on "Mothers" Day." but.
boys, the wearing will please the
mother living, and the mother dead,
looking down, will rejoice in spirit
that the son has not forgotten her.
And wouldn't every last man of us,
grayhaired though we may be. be a lot
better off. morally and mentally, if
; we had made every day ot our ousy
i lives more of a "Mothers" Day?" You
! young jueu whose mothers still live
iu flesh do you realize what a bless
j ing is yours to enjoy? A whole lot
of you do not. But there are a lot
i of us and many of us on the shady
side of forty whose mothers have
long since passed to that great re
ward which is the lot and heritage of
every good mother. And we can real
lie after all the years that have
elapsed since we gave her our last
kiss what a blessing she was, and
what a loss was ours when she sank
peacefully into the sleep that knows
no waking. Trust us to wear a white
Sower on "Mother's Day!" The
mother gone is a whole lot nearer to
some men than the mother was when
she was in the flesh. Do not let that
be said of you. uiy boy. if your mother
still lives. Wear a white flower to-

Si! receive that greatest of all joy that

honest, loving son.
The boy who -sticks by his mother
will not go wrong. The boy who
never forgets his mother, be she living
or dead, will not go very far wrong
nor stay wrong very long.
Wear a white flower tomorrow, my
boy! You mill be the belter for it.
And the wearing will make some
mother a mother in the flesh or a
mother in the spirit happier than
j ever. When American manhood for-
gets motherhood this nation will have
j gone to join the scores of republics
that were but are not.
Wear a white flower tomorrow, my
jboy! And while wearing it keep
j your His and your heart as pure
as th flower you wear.

Mr. Love indignantly denied that he
ever loaned money on chattel secur

somehow or other it reminds one of
