confront the Americans of to-day. He says:

Is it not evident that the frontier carries a great inspiration lesson for the present generation? The last material frontier has been conquered and the forests have all been explored. The waste lands are all charted and crossed by countless trails, and simply await the necessities of our expanding civilization to be subdued by the mec processes of irrigation. Nevertheless, America has just begun to face the test of her strength. A Nation of a few millions of people on the Atlantic coast has expanded into more than a hundred millions, and the very problems of existence are again, as in the frontier day, taxing to the utmost the ingenuity and the self-reliance of our leaders. Was there ever a time when selfreliance was more needed? Are not cheerfulDess and the American sense of humor demanded ? Was there ever an era in which a continental view-point, a firm reliance upon the orderly processes of democracy, and a high idealism were more vital ?

The author believes that the principles of real democracy are thoroughly assimilited by our people, including the great mass of those of foreign birth and parentage, but that democracy with us does not nclude the idea of equality in the sense hat would restrict the abilities and

opporunities of all to the limitations of those of lowest capacity. “It ought never be Dossible in America,” he says, group of people to organize millions of men to the extent where individual excelence is kept down by an arbitrary prohibiion upon self-realization and personal listinction. We must cling to the indiFidualism of the pioneer spirit, but we nust supplement the motto Trust thyself' vith this other wise counsel, Trust thy Cellow-man !

The author holds that the American public is constitutionally “liberal”—that is o say, open-minded and forward lookng. It is the hopeful, expectant attitude f the pioneer. It is bred into the sons of people who have opened up a new counry, and who have been always discountng the future. They habitually expect hings to change and conditions to imrove. They are receptive to new ideas nd tolerant of even violent dissenters. No advocate of reform could ask a fairer hance for his theories than he has in the orum and at the ballot-box in America. These are no obstacles to the introduction fany change, however radical, except that e approval of a majority of the people must be obtained. He quotes Morris Hilluit, the Socialist leader of New York, s saying that, “paradoxical as it may Pem, our very democracy las militated gainst the immediate success of Socialism.” hat is to say, it causes vexatious trouble nd delay to be obliged to convert so many eople before putting the Socialist docines into effect. Hence the “soviet lea and the attempt to put it into effect

Seattle and Winnipeg. Hence the disosition of the impatient and radical class

defy the Government and resort to Holence. It is a reversion from the peaceal methods of democracy and the ballotox, of reason and enlightened appeal, back the rule of brute force. The author is a thorough liberal, and such has a good word for the radicalhis place; and for the conservative-in s place ; which recalls the famous defense E the conservative by Herbert Spencer,

A Million Cars Made New

ISN'T your car actually running as well or nearly as well

as the day you bought it? Maybe better! Does it need anything to make it a new car except a smooth, glossy coat of enamel?

Let's see what that means.

Next Saturday afternoon give the car a thorough washing and allow to dry thoroughly. Pry off the top of a quart can of Murphy Da-cote Motor Car Enamel and flow on a coat with a soft varnish brush. Lock 'the garage doors. Next day roll her out, pack in the family and flash a bright, brand new car on the neighborhood.

Doesn't sound difficult, does it? More than a million car owners have done this very thing.

Da-cote is so smooth that it flows just a bit before setting, so that all brush marks and laps disappear.

Da-cote comes in black and several popular colors. Send for a color card and for the name of a merchant who sells Murphy's.

enough to go around. We have felt this increasingly during the war, but it was true before the war. Approximately ninety million people of the United States, exclusive of outTying possessions, received an income in 1910 of somewhat more than $30,000,000,000, including all wages, interest, profits, and rents. It Es estimated that about $2,500,000,000 of this was taken for the support of Federal, State, and local governments. At least $4,000,000,000 more was taken for additions to the productive equipment or capital of the country. This leaves not over $24,000,000,000 for curTent consumption during the year, which gives $260 per person or $1,300 a year for a family of five. The richest country in the whole world Is not very rich.

These are the conditions with which ciety has to deal. Whatever ideas one ay have about ideal conditions, we are onfronted with the stern fact that the manges must be accomplished without minishing the industrial product. With uman nature as we know it, at present -ciety cannot afford to reduce the incenves to personal exertion, nor can it afford ot to make full use of the individuals who ave exceptional talents in any line. It is pon this consideration that the right to 1oose one's own work and all the rights of rivate property are based. Most of us unnot conceive of the activities of one andred million people being stimulated ad directed upon any other basis.

There is a general desire among the aders of large industry that wage-earners all be interested in the business by hich they are employed, and how that fective interest shall be secured is being ndied in thousands of establishments. vidently the relationship must be of a ore or less permanent character. It cant be allowed that the man who has no ermanent interest in a business, who has zde no sacrifice for its upbuilding, who is ee to leave at will, shall have the same bice in its management as a man who has evoted a portion of his earnings to the urchase of an interest in the property. he one has a stake in the future of the usiness and the other has not. The difrence between their relations is fundaental. The desirable line of advance apears to be by what some one has called the peopleization" of the industries—that is, e wide distribution of ownership, and at has been shown to be entirely feasie. The “Railway Age” has lately called tention to the fact that if the railway nployees would devote an amount equivent to their last wage increase to the urchase of stock in the companies they vuld own a controlling interest in a short one. The action of the Brotherhood of ocomotive Engineers in establishing a illion-dollar bank at Cleveland is viewed mong bankers with favor, upon the belief at the mystery and suspicion which seems

surround banking will disappear if the ganized wage-earners are in position to now all about the services which banking enders to the community.

Mr. Emerson's book is written in a fine birit of sympathy with all sincere efforts - develop the social organization and imrove the common lot. There is a chapter pon“ Human Resources,” which is suffiently suggestive of its contents; eapons of Truth,” which is a plea for the ght kind of propaganda ;“Fifty Million Fapitalists,” in which he sets forth his beef that the cure for capitalism is more apitalists; the "American Spirit in

“ Vorld Affairs ;” and others, all written rith high appeal to social and world oblistions.

Every food cell is exploded, so you see an airy, toasted morsel as flimsy as a snowflake.

Puffed Rice is whole rice puffed in like way. Puffed Corn is broken corn puffed to raindrop size. The texture is enticing, the flavor is like nuts. The airy granules seem to
