WOULD Thackeray's "other annoyances" have in
cluded the persistent irritation of poor ink? We know that ink can be extremely annoying. Make this experiment. Have the ink-well washed cleanto clear away any old sediment, which would otherwise affect the new ink. Then fill the clean well with Carter's Writing Fluid. In no other way can you so fully realize the helpfullness of good ink-the clear, rich blue and free, even Aow which makes writing a pleasure. Try this before you sign to-day's mail, or take in hand your personal correspondence--and see how much better the letter looks.
No sooner had the August. 18th issue appeared than newspapers began wiring us for permission to reprint the notable interview with Senator Harding on labor.
The Chicago Tribune reprinted the interview in full, featuring it in front-page first-column position, in its issue of August 17th.
The New York Times, New York Tribune, New York Sun and Herald, Springfield Republican, Detroit Free Press, Omaha Bee, and many other leading dailies promptly passed this Outlook interview on to their readers in whole or in large part.

MADISON GATHANY appointed head of the Department of History and American Citizenship. The author of " What's the Matter with
the Eastern Farmer ?” began his contact with the soil on a farm in the hills of Pennsylvania, where he was appropriately born in a log cabin. This contact he kept throughout his boyhood, as this bit of autobiography, which we have elicited from him, reveals :
After spending fourteen years on the old home farm, I was hired out to a farmer for $7 per month and my board. I had to get up at four o'clock in the morning, go fully a mile for the cows through the wet grass, and help milk them. After breakfast I went out into the fields and worked until seven o'clock in the evening. Frequently we went out to do a little extra work

He went to Brown University, where he earned not only his way but his A.M. in English and History. HEODORE H. PRICE brings to bis
discussion of taxation a very necessary commodity for one who writes on this subject. He brings the good will of his readers, for he has earned it by his many articles in The Outlook. He brings also experience in finance, expe rience as an editor and writer (he is editor of " Commerce and Finance"), and the open-mindedness that enables à man to change his opinion in the presence of new evidence. In connection with his article we have a story to tell that may interest our readers. Mr. Price mentions in his article a cartoon. We were interested in it and wanted to find it to show it to our readers, so Mr. Moore, the Art Manager of The Outlook, turned to his friend Mr. Foss, of the Brooklyn Library, who promptly discovered the cartoon as reproduced in the columns of the “Literary Digesti", We had not access to the old age of the New York “ World,” in which it orig. inally appeared. We therefore applied to the “Digest," and were accorded the courtesy of access to the “Digest's file, from which the cartoon as it appears in The Outlook was re-reproduced. R
