DOCTOR BUTLER-ADVANCE AGENT OF
Doctor Nicholas Murray Buller, president of Columbia uni
versity ,is one of those college presidents who have a keen,
sense of values. lie knows that the easiest and quickest way
to coax large sumns from ithe coffers of the oil. coal, copper and
stee~l tagnates is to echol, their senltiimenlts.
'This method has worked well heretofore and Columbia has

The way to. break dowii the endeavors of these Bol

for war overseas. but for a war at hone. That is the task.

UPTON SINCLAIR'S LATEST WORK.
Upton Sinclair, the author of "The Jungle." "King Coaul.
ind "The Profits of lleligion.'" has just finished a rnew worlk
dealing with American journalismn. it is called "The Brass
Checkl" and is a detailed exposure of the methods of the "''kept
press," of the forces that have conspired to make the press
the pmost baneful inflhuerce ini our national life.
Upton Sinclair says of his latest wortk:
The thesis of 'The Brass Check" is that Amerieanl
joulrnalisa serves private intlerests and not public inter
ests. The title is explained in the course of the borok. as
a symblol of prostitution. The book mnakes a thorough
study of' journalistic prenclice; it analyzes the forces which
control Amerienn newspapers and mnagazines, and traces
the coinocetion betwCee their univeracily and their finan
cial interests. The book goes into detail and shrinks from
0o issue. Says the introduction:
Here are names. places. dates---such a mass of mriterial
as you cannot doubt, you cannot evade. Here is the whole
thing, inside and out. Here are your sac.red names, the

R.Einanes, one of WVeismann's
ablest critics, compares VWeismann's!
theory with Darwin's, and while hl

Weislnmann's charge that it is a:!
wholly unsupported speculation, he.
replies by contending that the germ-I

same kind of ai glass house.
However, that may be. it is quite;
clear that the germ-plasm theoryv
completely shuts out the Lamarckl

where propagation is sexual.
"But," say the Neo-Lamarckians,
"Darwinism in itself. merely. as-!
sumes variations wi.hout attempting;
to explain their origin. Natural sc
lection only explains the survival of
the fittest; it tells us nothing oi
what Prof. Cope calls the 'Origin oi
the Fittest.' There must be varia

comes this variation?" To this
que:t.ion Weisnmann has a ready re
ply. "Variation is due to the bieno-1
tug of two wholly different kinds of

at birth a result that is not, and can
not be, wholly like the contributor
And now, at last, the great Ger

We are reliabl^, informed that some
time ago he received an invoice of
shoes and sdme of th~m had got next
to some paiht'while, in transit or at
least before he: received them, so he
put in a dl.gTtllagalnst Uncle Sam
or the railway company. The in
voice showed that the cost of the
shoes was $6 per pair, which we are
informed was allowed by. the afore
said U. S. or railway company. The
shoes that were exempt from the
paint we are told he sold for $9.50.
Then after those that had the paint
on were separated from the paint,
he sold for $10 per pair. It cer
tainly would have been a very prof
itable invoice if they had all been
painted unless it had been "red
piaint." Sixteen bucks profit on a
pair of shoes is some profit.

a biological nature. Weismann main
tains this to be impossible. MIany
specific instances were put forward
in refutation of this contention.
Herbert Spencer cited the case o,
the supposed degeneration of thf
liti le toe in civilized man as a resul
of the shoe wearing habit. This i;

through the transmission of acquired
characters and not by natural selec.

Then Cesare Lombroso enterSd
the arena leading a camel. Accord
ing to the Italian criminologist, thi
camel's hump had been first acquirec
by bearing loads and then trans
mitted by heredity. From the fact
that the camel and the llama, whict
is mooth backed, have something it
commnon, he concludes that camel.
are really llamas that have recently
acquired a hump in the perform
ance of their labors. Lombrosc
also supported his hump theory by
some statements about Hottentot
women having developed callouses
on their hips by carrying their chil
dren on their backs. Unfortunately
all Lombroso's inqenuity was wasted
for we happen to possess the geolog
ical record of the camel in gooc
condition, and from this history we
know that the "ship of the desert'
had his hump before the h"liuniar
race appeared when according t(
Lombroso lie should have been
smooth-backed Ilama. Disappointec.
as Weismann's critics were it was
hardly feasible to argue. that the
camel had gotten his hump in those
early times by placing loads on hit
It was clearly seen that if a cast
of the transmission of a inutilatior
could be established, Weismann',
theory would be thereby demolished
IA remarkable attempt was madce it
this direction in 1887 at the meet

that dignified gathering came Dr
Zacharias with a number of tailless

cats had no tails because their
mother had lost her tail througt
having it run over by- a cart wheel
The examination of these speciment
proved an 'entertaining diversiot

enough to refer to themn in a latel
