FRIGHTFULNESS. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 7 June 1921
. FRIGHTFULNESS. During the progress of the recent European upheaval, the papers were crammed- full of han owing pen pic- tures of Hun atrocities and hands weie held heavenward in holy hor- ror. Weird curses " and fearsome imprecations were hurled at Ger- man frightfulness. But history seems to have been forgotten, and it may be well to Remind those foremost in condemnation of brutality'that more fiendish cruelty has been practised by those canting hypocrites whose" denunciations- have been inflicted on the public for" the past six years. Let us see how England^ used her power .as conqueror. " ^ -if-V. "After the battle the yictorió^p troops behaved with the barbarity of Sepoy mutiners.

It is fundamental- ly immoral. Capitalism is the rule\of the jungles-every one for himself. Its business world is^ ruled by the ethics -of the wolf pack-eat or be eaten, itb neues are gotten by' using men i-o serve one's own interests ^ or ends -a fundaùcnUl immorality. And lie social structure raised upon it is .uli of rottenness' and corruption. ~lt is customary* for_ capitalism's -preachers and moralists to expose and denounce the sexual immorali- ties of today, and the term " immor- al" has-almost come to be narrowed down to -sex matters. Of course, under a social order, founded on a fundamental immorality,' it would be dangerous to allow,morals to be- come associated with economics. BUT he new order is going to apply mor- ís to economics and as the Carpen cr of N.uarcth preached, is going -\ preach lint it is ...

LUNGS AND GILLS, TOO. A rare creature which is a sort of link between fish and retile is now on view at New York Zoo. It .is called the lung fish and its ancest ory has been definitely traced back twenty million years. The fish was caught in the Mary River Australia. At present it is housed in a l?rg&lt;* glass aquarium. However, thc freak thrives on land as well as in water. Zoo authorities finally hit wotti ? menu of ground meat and fish. When the lung fish comes out of the water it makes its home in the mud, drill- ing a circular home. It will not par- take of food except at night and j eats nothing when living on Tan'*.

THE COMING COMET. [Newspaper Article] — Northern Standard — 14 June 1921
THE COMING COMET. The chances arc stated to be a thousand to one against the comet bumping thc earth. The odds are not long enough to be comfortabjc; ? but astronomers have told us that they are by no. means sure that j a comet's bump would amount to any- thing. ' The material of which the thing with a tail is made may be as thin as Joe Cook's republicanism or Billy Hughcs's patriotism; b,ut then, again, it may be as thick as soup, and hot soup at that. WhethV the comet hits or not, a Day !of Judgment is coming-good, sojid judgment in which every worker can stand up boldly and ask, "What for?". Then some Tats may wish for a comet to fall on them and hi;' them from the public boot.

HIS THIRD CAMPAIGN. (By "Convict No. 7.") The boat tied up along side ' jetty, passengers and . crewalike hung over the rails. Some gazed on scenes thafe were new and pleasing, others just garped about, out of idle curiosity. A little knot of men on thc jetty scanned the boat from stem to stem in search of a face which it was quite evident that they had not found up to this time. Then one bf the number jumped out - shouted "There he is boys!" and all eyes turned and looked in the di tion in which his finger was point- ing. My gaze had followed the resi and it rested on our old friend Jact Burton, who was quite unconcerned and was busily engaged tugging ; great box up the stairway from th&lt; cabin. There was a rush for th&lt; boat, shouting out "Hello Jack pleased to see you back," and thei followed a bombardment of qucs tions, which would have done *' tice to Gunner Jack Burton in tb big puch had., they been shells "Thank you for the welcome, lads, said Jack, "I am ...
