COMMON SENSE [Newspaper Article] — Vaudeville News — 6 August 1920

COMMON SENSE By J . ALDRICH LIBBEY Rhetoric , flowery and well-flavored , may cover a lot of bombast with its velvety mantle . Vagaries—impossible nothings—become dangerous somethings when spoken by a cunning personality . All people have troubles , # cares and sorrows , more or less , and grievances , fancied or otherwise . These , dwelt on by the expert in knowing how to play upon their feelings , often become dangerous factors . Beware of the one who professes sympathy , while all the time arousing within you a spirit of discord and discontent . Many defamers of the Holy Book have at different times in the world s history found those who would agree , and shake their heads , but in the end Common Sense would step in , and apparent con tradictions and discrepancies would vanish like the mist before the sun . * So if there be anyone left who would misinterpret the objects of the N . V . A ., just use a little Common Sense and reflect : I have a club house , really my home . I have ...

ANDSOITCAMETOPASSA FABLE By W . DAYTON WEGEFARTH Once upon a lime there stood in the valley of a great land a splendid edifice of such surpassing magnificance as to thrill all who passed within ils gates , and of such gigantic proportions as to awe those who cast their eyes upon it . There were rich hangings , velvet tapestries , as soft as summer s breath , glorious colorings that melted away into echoing hues , great marble columns that stood about like governing sentinels , art treasures that liad been wrested from the troves of the ancients , carpets that lay like rose petals , as though to caress the feet of those who trod upon them , and a wealth of such beauties as only the dreamer knows . And to this great temple came the king and all the nobles of his . court , followed by all the faithful people of his realm , to enjoy themselves and to forget for a brief moment the heavy trials of life , for it must be told that , in this bewitching temple of splendor , brave plays were g...
