More than a century and a quarto ago the Wise and patriotic founders of this republic wrote an Immortal document In Which they declared that when a system of government to bad the people have the right to alter or abolish it. They declared that among the things the government should guarantee Ita citizens was the protection of Ufe, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. You will find these sentiments in the Dec laration of Independence. What hapiness has the family without a home? What liberty had the man or woman who Is de pendent upon another for a Job a chance to earn a living? What protection Is there to life In the overcrowded tenements of the dtles where children die Like files and the parents contract con sumption or other fatal diseases?

The efforts of the London county council to drive out the Cockney speech from the schools of the English metropolis hardly needed the opposi tion given in a book recently issued In defense of the dialect. This book, which is. curiously enough, the work of a man named Mackenzie MacBride, contends j that Cockney is no modern dialect, bur that it possesses an nnclent and hon orable lineage running back nearly 1,000 years. When one born within 1 sound of Dow Bells says "thct" for "that." "benk" for "bank," and "by lyfTe" for "bailiff," he Is using no mod ern corruption of the English lan- ! guago. but. the pronunciation of those words which has obtained no, only in London, but in Kent and Surrey for hundreds of years Moreover, in an- ! Riant times, the words were spelled as the Cockney now sounds them. So, t...

1 Jfwhbb i Her Cousin Joe By LOUISE HENDERSON It all began for Tilly the day her father came home from the village with a box and a letter for her. The bo held books, worn volumes mostly, the overflow from Joe Mackintosh's li brary, and the letter told how he had happened to send them to Tilly. Joe Mackintosh was first cousin to Tilly's father, though considerably ' younger and a promising lawyer In the city. Once when Tilly was a little thing of 6 he had come up Into the hills with a companion for two days' fishing and had lodged at the poor eabln In the clearing. Tilly remem bered him. And It seemed he remem bered her, for he had sent her the books. Tilly's mother was a stout, slattern ly woman and her father a hard working man who for all his hard work seemed not to accomplish any thing. Neither of them knew more of the world's affairs than did the wood chucks that whistled on a sunny after noon In the high, slnntlng pasture. "I wish the land that man'd kept his readln' trash u h...

Under In structions from the war depart ment the army of the Great Lakes in being organized. Tills practically means the elim ination of the state militia and the substitution of United Sta ges troops. The plan Is to raise the citizen soldiery to that of the regulars. Instead of having a state militia we will have federal troops under direct control and a part of the regular standing army. Thus we have another instance where the constitution Is grad ually and subtly undermined. In the past, when those imper ialists who are friendly to a standing army have advocated aji increase In the number of idle men to be supported by the public, a storm of protest has gone up all over the country, In the face of which It was Impossi ble to get such legislation thru congress.
