and employee would exist. There are many other important features of the plan, but the simplest way to characterize it as a whole is to say that in its own field it would operate much as the workmen's compensation laws now operate to cut down the number and severity of accidents.
The opponents of such a plan are numerous, including a majority of employers and, curiously enough, Mr. Gompers, of the American Federation of Labor. It is Mr. Gompers's opinion that such insurance will make pensioners out of unemployed laborers, that in hard times it will create a class who will look upon the State as a huge charitable eeded agency, and that this attitude will gradually break down the keenness and aggressiveness for which union labor has been so well known in the past. This argument seems beside the point if we conceive the plan in mind, not as an effort of the State to dole out charitable payments in time of stress, but as a 'working, every-day buffer against the irregularities of employment, the whole burden of which will rest upon industry itself. It is no more a "charitable" act for a worker out of employment to acrept unemployment insurance than for the same worker to accept accident insurance when he breaks his leg. In either case the worker is insured against the calamitous effects of not being able to work through no fault of his own. and the bill for this insurance is paid by that particular company which is, to some extent, responsible for the worker's unemployment.
Of course the chief objectors to this plan will be among the employers. Their first comment undoubtedly is that it adds one more burden to overhead exbense. This is the same objection that was made during the fight for workmen's accident laws, and, in fact, for almost any laws that appear to add to the cost of doing business, no matter how salutary their effect in other ways may be. It is a selfish objection-but, more than that, it is a weak objection, for it is not true. The enactment of this Jaw in focusing the attention of employers upon methods to combat unemployment (and thus cut down the amount of their insurance premiums) would unloubtedly have the same effect upon nemployment as a similar law has had upon accidents. It would diminish unemployment, and diminished unemployment would mean stabilized industry, more even production, and thus freer Opportunities to increase business prof

NEWSPAPER man tried to draw out Henry Ford about his ambitions for the Presidency. "Would you undertake," he asked Mr. Ford, "to run all the railroads and mines of the United States; to lower the rates and prices according to your principles of good business; to increase wages, to reduce working hours, to add greatly to the service, and to bring a happy ending to the labor wars, without resorting to military forceif...?" "If what?" "If I undertake
to get you the job?" the interviewer ended weakly. "I didn't ask you to get me a job," was Mr. Ford's effective counter.
Shooting has a strong hold on the average Englishman, and he apparently doesn't count the cost where game is considered. At least this is indicated by the following advertisement in the London "Times." It also indicates the financial difficulties of owners who have to receive "paying guests" to meet their expenses:
Grouse Driving in Aberdeenshire.Guns Wanted as Paying Guests. 26 days' shooting last year the bag was 3,663 grouse, at least four days' driving per week; everything found except ammunition, loaders and wines. Price for September £175, or £50 per week.-Application is requested to the owner. Very good prospects this over 6,000 Bag should be year. grouse.
A letter from Russia to Minneapolis had stamps attached to it in sheets, so a daily paper says. Altogether, the stamps were valued at 200,000 rubles. This, however, owing. to the great depreciation of Russian money, amounted in value to only about ten cents in American money. Before the war 200,000 rubles were worth $100,000.

A house organ argues that printers I must give up their old presses and get new machinery if they wish to possess any advantage over their competitors. It illustrates the point thus:
George Bernard Shaw says somewhere that when you give a certain degree of education to everybody, it ceases to be education at all. A man who knows what everybody knows is an uneducated man, the educated man being one who knows what other people do not know. This is true in the sense that knowledge or skill which is in the possession of every one has no market value.
What is true of human skill and accomplishments is also true of ma
An illustration of the gallantry of the native African comes from a British hunter who writes to "Country Life:"
"Now here is a curious thing about Africans. If one acquires, say, a lot of meat, he tries to get it into the charge of his wives as soon as possible. While he remains in possession everybody cadges from him: friends, relations, everybody of similar age, the merest acquaintances, all seem to think that he should share the meat with them. Bu once the meat is handed over to his wife it is secure. Whenever any one asks for some, he refers them to his wife. That ends it, for nobody will cadge from a woman."
"Collier's" lately asked its readers to name the man in American life who most aptly fitted this description in "Hudibras:"
He could distinguish and divide
He'd undertake to prove by force
