Mr. Thomas Breathes Out
Slaughter At Dallas
The speech of Norman Thomas, avow-
ed socialist, made in Dallas Thursday night
likes only a match to set off the highly,
inflammable matter which formed a large
part of his utterances.
He was clearly a highly nervous, in-
temperate speaker, letting out breathings
and slaughter against all those who dared
to think different. He went far afield in
the direction of stirring up basic- passions
in those who are not too far removed
from the pack.
There was nothing of elevation or men-
SATOUDAY, Sept. II. 1027
tal stimulation of tho nobler kind in his
talk, and if his type of leadership for the
labor movement is in the saddle, we may
look for nothing but turmoil in the ranks
of workers and with industry.
If his speech is a type of the intemper-
ance with which he would run labor, may
the Good Lord spare us from such men
being placed in charge of anything.
Mr. Thomas is a type of man who in-
flames others to deeds that are violent in
order to get their ends, his speech bristling
with such implications.
If there ever was a penalty to speech
making, Mr. Thomas comes nearer ap-
proach the point where some speeches
should not be permitted than any man who
represents the labor cause. Fortunately,
we have other leaders for the labor move-
ment. However, Mr. Thomas brands them
as traitors to the cause and of being in
league with those who oppose the closed

The Press carried a story this week
of Denison 35 years ago in which a lady,
Mrs. French Sexton, set fire to her dress
when she stepped on a match lying on the
sidewalk down town. In these days of
curtailed skirts as to length it would be
a flambo that would be needed to catch
the bottom of any lady's dress.
Observation of the 150th anniversary
of the Constitution of the United States is
coming up for the week of the 12th of
September in this country. If there is any-
thing that needs attenion more, and a
wholesome interpretation of, we fail to
know just what it is. Out of the heat that
may arise during the week let us hope for
some light also.

The immense estate of million-
aire Gerard Montieth at South
Cove adjoins the lesser estate of
Major Forrest, whose son-in-law,
Harley Stevenson, a writer of
crime mystery novels, tells this
story. Mary, niece of Montieth,
does not want to marry David For-
rest. Montieth tells her he will dis-
inherit her if she does not marry
David. At an afternoon party on the
Forrest grounds word comes that
Montieth has been murdered.
While County Prosecutor Fox-
croft, a guest at the Forrest party,
goes to investigate, Harley breaks
the news to Mary.
Mary stopped in her tracks, the

Then she did something peculiar.

old stone gate cottage—all about.

but you did put in a lot of time t.s
a private detective, practical work."
"Nothing would please me better."
