The Hih Cost of Living.
IT CKRINLY costs more to live well than to eke out a scanty
existence, and that the world over mankind is determined to live
more comtortaDiy man nitnerto ana is nnaing me means to ao u is
the most cheering phenomenon of modern civilization.
Consul James E. Dunning of Havre, France, makes an illuminating
report on this subject as it presents itself to him in his consular district.
The Frtnch arC the most thrifty of white peoples and have always been
accustomed to skimp and save money.
Probably the habit of saving will remain, but there is also a determi
nation to live better than heretofore. To live better and still save one
must have a larger income. To get the larger 'income one must get
better wages or better profits. That means higher prices for labor and
its products, and there you are. The increased cost of living results
from a universal determination to live better.
Consul Dunning says that until recently the French people have been
content to adhere to their old standard of life. During- the last five
years they have shown not only the determination to increase the cjass
, standards of living, but the ambition which is so common in America
to struggle to rise into the better-paid classes.
i'l.e masses of the people are beginning to want "musical instru
ments, electric lights, ornamental furniture, labor-saving kitchen appli
ances, illustrated periodicals, modern bathrooms, patented food in
packages and the many other characteristic American adjuncts."
Consul Dunning says that the evidence is plain that the increased
cost of living in Prance is the result of the betterment of living and
that this is now generally recognized, so that "the remedies so far sug-
"ge.-ted by the French themselves practically imply an acceptance of
Unfortunately for the French, their cost of living does not yet equal
our cost of living, because in our happy and prosperous country our
standard is much higher and we are able to maintain it.
During the present political campaign, the democrats have attacked
the administration, and put forth the claim that it is responsible for the
high cost of American living.
That is to say that it is responsible for the prosperity which makes
high living possible.
The most atdent republican would hardly dare claim this. The re
publicans are mostly sane individuals who know it is the energy of the
people and the productiveness of the land which makes us prosperous.
If the action of the Republican national committee is as raw a steal
as it looks to be on the face of the cable news from Chicago, then look
out for trouble at the polls. You can fool all the people part of the
hue, and you can fool part of the people all the time, but you cannot
jo all the- people all the time.

Why Is Justice Blind.
(By E. V. Wilcox, in Crossroads.) '
FAR too long has the goddess of justice been blind,
While she holds the balance aloft.
Is a pound of flesh and a pound of gold
Quite the same to her blinded eyes ?
Can she test the mere weight of a counterpoise
In a life all moldy with sin ? ,
Can she measure the blood and the pain of toil
In the brazen scales of the law ?
Shall her ears be free to hear the boast,
A: id her eyes not see the leer
Of the man who knows that justice is blind,
While he tosses his dross in the pan ?
As if worth were measured by gravity,
Or agony balanced with gold.
Or a pound were always a pound whether one
'Of ten millions or one of two.
Could all values be tested by rules and machines,
And measured by yardsticks and scales,
The relative worth of men would appear
To be matter for laughter and tears.
And the goddess of justice would need no eyes,
Nor delicate sense of ear
Could she measure the soul of the depth of love,
Or the temper of sympathy ? .

attractive assistant, whose duty It was
to lean with outstretched arms against
a soft pine board. This board was
surrounded with electric lights, which
accentuated her beauty. The knife
thrower would then station himself a
few feet distant and hurl knife after
knife at the board. These knives would
just graze tbe skin and plunge with a
thud Into the board and remain quiv
ering. It was a thrilling act, and when
the last knife was thrown the young
woman would be so closely hemmed In
by knives that they had to be drawn
out before she could free herself.
One night the pretty assistant was
taken ill, and the performer's wife was
drafted for the work. She was far
from pretty. In fact, she was distinct

stage, and when she reclined against
the board the pitiless lights threw Into

limbs and general unattractlveness
