    On another thread there was a conversation regarding manners. Specifically that of men helping a member with her feed.
    While sorting through some papers I have I came across a copy of the

    NEW YORK TEMPERANCE WORK.
    Official organ of the woman's christian temperance union, state of New York.
    "Oh woman, great is thy faith, be it unto thee even as thou wilt." Matt. 15:28

    I thought I'd share "The Code Of THE GOOD AMERICAN" on the cover page.

    Boys and Girls who are good Americans try to become strong and useful, worthy of their nation, that our country may become ever greater and better. Therefore, they obey the laws of right living which the best Americans have always obeyed.

    The good American controls himself. Those who best control themselves can best serve their country.

    The good American tries to gain and keep good health; for the welfare of our country depends upon those who are physically fit for their daily work.

    The good American is kind.
    The good American plays fair.
    The good American is self reliant.
    The good American is reliable.
    The good American is true.
    The good American tries to do the right thing in the right way.
    The good American works in friendly cooperation with his fellow workers.
    The good American is loyal.

    If America is to become every greater and better, her citizens must be loyal, devotedly faithful, in every relation of life; Full of courage and regardful of their honor.
