THE ART Of GIV
ING AWAY MONEY
By Rev. Dr. ROBERT COLLYER of New York
RUBING the ljist twenty years the leading America
ambition has changed from MONEY GETTING 1
MONEY JIVING. Our millionaires are studyin
the art of giving. Getting has become so easy, weah
rolls in upon so many, that a vast fortune is no longe
a great achievement. TO GIVE GENEROUSLY"
AND USEFULLY HAS BECOME AN AMBITION.
Our men of wealth give freely, gladly. There is no need t
squeeze money out of them; just touch them, and, like a'full honej
.comb, they freely pour fortfi a golden stream. They do not evei
wait to be asked.
They build libraries, hospitals, gymnasiums, colleges, schools
churches. Every f*per we pick up contains accounts of vast charitiei
' * * ?
: Never before in the history of the world has there been sue!
-an- outpouring of wealth. Tlje only thing at aU comparable with ii
was the giving of fortunes for the building of cathedrals in *he
The fact that our' men of wealth are devoting themselves more
to THE ART OF GIVING than to the art of getting is due to the
growth of our sense ..of social responsibility. - There-is a public
sentiment which declares that the man who-gets': without giving has
not realized the responsibilities of his position. He is condemned
for having fallen short of ,his duty. . -
OUR MONEYED MEN KNOW THIS AND IN THE MAJORITY OF
CASES ARE QUITE READY TO FULFILL THEIR SOCIAL OBLIGA
There has been within the last twenty years a new realization of
human unity. It strongly manifests jtself in these generous gifts.
It is thc arising of a new ambition, and surely a NOBLE one.
We hear much of the "money grabbing" of the present age, but
those of us who have watched the progress of the nation during the
lifetime of two generations know that the nobler ambitions are
rapidly taking the place of the merely COMMERCIAL ones that
formerly ruled us.
"THE AMERICAN ? HIS REGULAR ARMY"
. By SPRECKELS WILSON, British Military Expert
H -T. s?ej^ -j_
.army America must, take into consideration the na
titmir guard, a 1?UGE, AMBITIOUS, DILET
TANTE, WIRE PULLING ORGANIZATION,
abdut as warlike, scientific and efficient as the im
perial guard of China. . .
Americans always show themselves to be large pedants-that
is the inevitable result of their rigid constitution-but never does
this pedantry appear so ridiculous as in the discussions over the
**gal status of the national guard. Is the force a national or a local
one.^?^t it as a unir, obey the president or is it a congeries of
atoms, each^^^g state governor? Fancy the destruction of
prestige and authoriv.^niplied m sucfa a fantastic dispute! One

tion, while acknowledging the authority of the president^
that Us order must come through the governor and that no caTT
through other channels need be listened to. Another class believes
in the fundamental authority of the national government and an
nounces itself alwavs ready to respond to any orders received from
Washington regardless of the channel through which such mandate

ON THE WHOLE, IT IS MANIFEST THAT THE AVERAGE AMER
?CAN STILL TAKES LITTLE INTEREST IN HIS REGULAR ARMY.
He still reserves all his enthusiasm for the volunteers, who-are
often men of means and social position. The Englishman knows
that the backbone of his defense and defiance consists of the regu
lar armv. THE AMERICAN, ON THE OTHER HAND,
HAS YET TO APPRAISE THE TRAINED PROFESSIONAI
SOLDIER AT HIS REAL VALUE.
A DEFENSE Of PARTISANSHIP
j By FRANK S. BLACK. Ex-Governor of New York
PARTISANSHIP is nothing but CONVICTION, whil.
I nonpartisanship is the disguise which ambition alway
? wears when it travels under an assumed name.
A nonpartisan is an UNBELIEVER. He, goe
where the wind goes. He is ready to agree with thos
who oppose, and the first word upon his tongue is compromise. H
removes opposition only by SURRENDER. No nonpartisan wa
ever found upon a summit unless partisans had raised him there
Destitute of strong .beliefs, he is destitute of great courage.

The spirit which I profoundly admire is nowhere more exen
piified than in Chicago. This wonderful settlement has proclaime
lor many years the value of a consistent partisan purpose. CH

financially. There have been practically nckfjssuei
of securities in the last year and a half. Thej|wer<
paid for then. Some one owned them. WH|re ii
the money now? I tell you this is A RICH MAN'S
PANIC. It's your big speculator who has been dumping h&fstocl
on the market, not your small investor. The big fellows have beer
pinched by bad investments like the big underwriting schemes,'-sud;
as the International Mercantile Marine and the United States"Ship
building company, and THEY HAVE HAD TO ' SELL OF!
THEIR GOOD HOLDINGS TO PROTECT THE POOR VEN
TURES. Why, I know men who went into United States Steel^with
40,000 shares. They haven't got 100 left today. They simply, had
to let go. Stocks were nonsensically high awhile ago; now*they
are nonsensically low. But this is a good time to buy formlose
who select good stocks and nOLD ON TO THEM. JP
One cause of the uneasiness has been the foreign distrust of
American securities. United States Steel lias been the barometer
of the American market abroad. But the bond issue of
000 ands the retirement of $200,000,000 preferred stock caused dis
trust of the judgment of the Steel directors.
Another cause of the shrinkage has been the fear thal we would
get no CURRENCY legislation from the next congress. We ought
to have a more elastic currency. I favor a $500,000,000 increase,
with provisions that it could be called in if need be.
THE LABOR SITUATION IS ANOTHER CAUSE. THE IRON AND
STEEL TRADE IS ALL RIGHT EXCEPT IN BUILDING ?ONSTRUC
TION LINES, WHERE ORGANIZED LABOR HAS TIED UP THE' IN

In many prominent pulpits in America today tl
preachers simply DARE not be uncompromising ;
their denunciation of sin and wickedness. Sue
preaching would drive out the men whose ill gotten wealth mah

virtues he knows they do not possess, and for the sake of his BREA.
AND BUTTER is compelled to pander to prejudices in publi
which in private he despises.
The mightiest force in the world is the aroused conscience of
great people, and the chief quickener and educator of the conscienc

of the piilpit and is becoming the most important and effectual su?
port , of virtue's cause.

War With Germany Is Inevitable
By Professor ALBION W. SMALL, University of Chicago -
IN plain English the attitude of the Germans toward
the United States is, "We like you awfully, but we've
got to fight you all the same." This doesn't mean
trade hampering, with tariff regulations. It means
sooner or later SHOOTING TO KILL.
The Germans are chip3 from the same block that produced us;
rgyWrfodigve it is their first business to look out^for number one.

Reputable German newspapers are continually ringing the
changes on the theme, and serious books assert it as self evident
truth. The spokesmen of both nations of course scout the idea, but
I have no more doubt that Germany is DELIBERATELY CAL
CULATING on the day and hour of her ability to give us a thrash
ing than I have that from the moment Bismarck became the master
nind of Prussia he was getting ready for Sedan.
At any moment Germany may be pressing us to define our policy
>n one or other of thc various questions ABOUT WHICH WE
^RE NOT SURE IN OUR OWN MENDS. The test is likely

utlet for manufactured products and a place to invest capital where

LIKELY THE GERMANS WILL TAKE SOME POSITION THAT WE
fOULD TAKE IN THEIR PLACE UNDER THE CIRCUMSTANCES.

View? on Honrs, Cattle ?nd Grass. <
In the last few years the high price of
O?Lit has drawn the attention of oar,
people to raising hogs, nnd only in a
small way has it been done economical
ly and at a profit. I am an extreme
cotton planter, but have always given,
much attention to hogs, cattle and
grass. Let the negro make all the cot
ton he can, for lt is all he will success
fully do on the farm. Then if you are a
large landowner raise all the grate,
hay and meat you can. You can get the
negroes* labor cheaply when they are
not needed in the crop. Make them
plant almost exclusively cotton and sell
them their rations and horse feed.
Most of them want only a little money

Give all your idle and spare time to 1
you- stock and grass. To be a succ?s?
must have knowledge, and that can be t
acquired here only by long years of ex
perience and a thorough reading of our
southern magazines. You must know
what kinds of grass and grains to sow
that are suitable to our climate and soil.
To raise hogs cheaply you must have
good grassing for them every day in the
year. Plant your corn next to your
summer pasture, plant ground peas in
the drill of your corn and fill all water
furrows with peas and have your corn
"For "summer pasture you must -have
red clover. Johnson grass, mellllotusl
