W'edesire to .-all attention to the^article of Mrs. Hruce (Hosier last week^taken from the liritlsli International^Iteviovv. Mrs. Clasi.r is one of that^noble galaxy ol brilliant Knglish wo^^rn, n Socialists that have added so^much to the power and enthusiasm^of the Itritish movement. Mrs. C.lasler^became a Socialist in lor father's^home and w as turned out of doors lor^h. r radical id. as. She was about to^.lroun lu rselt in h. r misery and des^^pair wh.n sbi' was saved by Itrueo^Clasi. r. H.- afterwards sent her to^collide, where she graduated, and^eventually l^^ came one of the foremost^speakers and writers among the Hrit-^isli Socialists, where she is the pet of^the movement. H.r husband, Hruce^Clasi. r is one of the most prominent^figures in th.- Independent I^abor par^^tv
Thisissue will hring a-surancp to the subscribers of The^Mont-jina News that the fonrless advocate of tht working; class^in the inter mountain country has not boon abolished in spite^of the tryiny: circumstance^ it has passed throufih in the last^few weeks. Mrs. llazlett lias been made manager by the exe^^cutive committee pending the adjustment of matters in place^of A. \Y. Harroek, who resigned over a month igo. The small^edition with its st itement was entirely unauthorized, and was^pQ, out without the knowledge of the editor and without her j^sanction. The Montana Xcus will go on. no matter what form^of control may be adopted. People do not give up their lives!^for three years to build up a splendid enterprise to have it
needlesslyand wantonly destroyed. Twelve hundred dollars
wasnot a large debt for a paper doing the business the Mon^^tana News was doing four mouths ago, I tut a business enter^prise must have business promotion.
The\'o\vs will go on. Th^ party membership can do Ml^it pleases about lifting the debt. We may be obliged to re ]^trench a little for a few weeks, but the paper as a Socialist;
organIs not lost.
Thosewho wish to help may send in their subs. We need^the money more than ever now. Those who are willing to
makegood their pledge! will feel that they are put imine^diately on a Socialist OOOSt, as the management now pays cash^for each issne of the paper.
Jobwork is a prolific nonree of revenue, and an\ rushed^into us now will be much appreciated and promptly attended^to. The News now offers Rn opoitiinity to those WnO feel that^their part in Socialist work is the honor of helping t^^ establish^a local Socialist press. Mrs. llazlett leaves in a few weeks^on an extended tour to rfcifte money to suport the News. She^w ill edit the paper en route The troubles of the Xew s have^been almost entirely the result of a party undisciplined, so that^it cannot do business. I'ut the Montana party is learning^through its responsibilities. It will yet awaken and become^a powerful expression for the risinir demands of labor.

INTHE ORIGINAL DOCUMENTS1
sweepsaway the bigotry and superstition that has accum^^ulated around Religion, Government, Law, Social Sci^^ences, etc.^brings to light the naked truth and shows^why Socialism is coming. This rare collection of Orig^^inal Documents (translated) covers as well the entire^field of thought Religion, Science, Philosophy, Soci^^ology, Education, History, etc.^presenting the ideas^that have influenced civilization in the actual words of^those who have developed them.
ETerySocialiM should know tnmi-thlna nrsules In- Karl Marx which by the^way. those who know tin- lra^t about him quote the most. The mere knowledge of a^(i ^ Socialist phrase* ia noi autficient to make a 'scientific' Socialial.
In order to know WHY Nocial'sm is comma, a Socialist should ha^e some idea^nl the theory of evolution, and ^ome knowlrdiie of history. In order to know why it^is .- imiiiK. he must know somethtnir of economic duvcloiiment.
We.as Socialists, are vitally interested in the developmeul of clillllatiou. His^lory for u^ is not a collection of'shallow Tillage tales.' the atory of the coronaliooa,^weddinga and burials of kina*. Nor is it simply an account of battle* lost and won. ^o^many thousand killed on either aide, and this or that king or general given all the^glory. No. For us the true lesson of history ia the atory of the progress of mankind^by gradual steps from brutal saragery to enlightenment, culture and liuman tv A^graai Knglish statesman has wisely said, 'the history of the future ia to be read in ibe^p. -es of tbe past.
Noone realties tins truth more than the really scientific Socialist.
Themanner in w hich niie system has grown out of another, tued.il -m out of^slavery, and capitalism out of fuedalism. is most suggestive of ihe mauner by which the^Socialist Republic will gradually develop out of the present system.
Theseare the most instructive lessons of history.
Todo this is the aim of a set of books recently published uuder the title of^I.IHKARY OK OHHWNAI, SOURCES. It giveala ten volume, a history of the var-^iuus lines of human development. A nd w hat is its special advantage, this history is^given in the original documents that formed the milestones of the development.

Thework of gathering tin sc doe inn. nts is still going on. but a large^number have ben collected, arranged in chronological order, exhaus^^tively indexed and printed on handmade ibck.le-.dge pap.r, cased in^strong buckram, making ten largo anil handsome volumes. Charter^Mi mbors receive, without additional cost, all futun- documents repro^^duced for twenty years.
