Roosevelt in Omaha.
When Col. Roosevelt was hi
Omaha, September 2, and made
a speech at the auditorium, he
was introduced by Senator Bur
kett. In response to the Senators
introductory address Col. Roose
velt gave him a splendid endorse
ment. The former presidnet’s
remarks, as reported in the Lin
coln Journal, were as follows:

whom 1 especially relied while 1

entirely unmerited, in which he
described what the typical Amer

A QUESTION FOR MOTHERS TO SETTLE!
William Allen White, in his paper, the Emporia, Kansas
Gazette: The mothers of this town have had a lesson, but
it doesn’t seem to have done them any good. There are
just as many girls gadding around town after school, get
ting their mail from private bokes in the postoffice, as there
were two years ago. Two years ago the Gazette went for
the mothers of Emporia for neglecting their daughters, and
the result was that a half dozen private mail boxes were
discontinued, and lots of little girls that were in the habit
of gadding too much, were kept in for a time, these girls
are now developing into fine young women, but another
crop of gadding girls has come.
They are between 14 and 17 years of age, and are so
everlastingly boystruck they can't sit still. If their
mothers knew the type of boys and men—young human
pups these girls are running with—their mothers would
But their mothers know nothing of the situation. They
think that their little girls are sweet and pure—that noth
ing can harm them. The truth is that these children are
made of the same kind of mud that we are all made of,
and are just as liable to temptation as older people and a
thousand times less experienced. And their mothers let
them gad the streets after school and flirt with all kinds of
men, and then wonder how the devil got them, and think
the girls must take after their fathers.
There are two things that w'ill help make girls straight
at “that age”—one is plain clothes, and the other is home
duties. The girls who make fools of themselves in Emporia
are invariably overdressed.
A little gml with too many ana too costly ciotnes
on her back, gets self conscious and vain
and loves admiration and you grown-up women know
the ne:it step. A simple, pure hearted girl, who has a place
in a home, home work and home duties, has her heart there
and no boy can steal it. Only when maturity comes
and a real man comes, will such a girl leave home and
then only after heart-aches and heart-rendings.
Work makes things sacred. The child whose home
memories are not hallowed by work will not love home.
And if she does not love the home of her girlhood, she will
love no other home. She will go anywhere for anything.
Home will mean nothing to such a woman, and if she is
respectable, she will only lack the opportunity of becoming
a bad woman, and is good only through circumstances or
by necessity of an ugly face She will curse the man she

girls who gsd the streets snould stop and think what they

will you have their impression come from—from the riff
raff of the street or from the home? It is for the mothers
of this town to settle the question.

grafters and high finance. They have taken a long step to the
front as good citizens; and why not demceocrats do the same,
when they find their party drifting into the hands of the booze
