Transcript AN APPEAL TO THE YOUNG. 5 If you have a good heart, a frank address, an honest face, the family will tell you many things. They will tell you that the woman on the other side of the partition, who coughs a cough which tears your heart, is a poor ironer; that a flight of stairs lower down all the children have the fever: that the washerwoman who occupies the ground floor will not live to see the spring; and that in the house next door things are worse.

But if you are a Man, if every sentiment is translated in your case into an action of the will, if, in you the beast has not
