CARLYLE CALLED US BORES
Eqtlality Developed Monotony of Type
in Country's Second Epoch, Was
Prof. Max 1arrand of Yale,. Iec..
ing on "American Traits" as developed 1
in - the epoch of 1812 to 1840, said
at Lowell institute recently, the Kan
sas City Star observes:
'Equality of status is, of course,
not a characteristic, but a condition;
yet it is a factor which has led to I
the development of important Ameri
can traits. Here, where, if absolute
equality did not exist, at least there
was far greater equality than there
was anything else; where, if there was
not equality of opportunity for all,
there was at least some opportunity
for all, the European relationship of
superior and inferior classes could not
long continue. The 'inferior' of today
were too likely to become the 'supe
rior' of tomorrow.
"This meant, of -course, a great stim
ulus to independence, and developed Ir
the~ people's self-reliance. Independ
ence is one of the most conspicuous
American traits, and it has been not I
without unpleasant manifestations. It
has induced a lack of respect for au
thority and for elders, and the exist
ence of equality has tended to a re
markable monotony among the people
who developed these opportunities, till t
Carlyle could say: 'Americans have I
begotten, with a rapidity beyond re- 1
corded example, 18,000,000 of the great
est bores ever seen in the world be
"Yet in contrast with this deadly (
equality, the existence of opportunity 2
for all individuals also led to a strong i
individualism among Americans, giv- 1
ing each man a chance to develop
what was in him. Hence our love
for the self-made man, and hence the
Aerican devotion to leaders rather
than to principles."
OBJECTS TO 'DEAR OLD LADY' t
Writer Desires Abolition of What He t
Describes as the Sickly Senti- f
mental Adjective. l
- - c
Words have a way of falling violent- r
ly in love with each other. One may E
watch sometimes the progress of the C
affair. A graceful adjective is intro- t
duced to a sturdy noun by some care- I
less writer. The two strangers find i
themselves mutually congenial. They a
are thrown together constantly. Af- I
ter a while the wedding is quietly t
celebrated and the couple pass from
romance to humdrum respectability,
becoming such a couple perhaps as t
"Bitter End," "Unparalleled pircum- I
stances" or "Critical Situation." I
Sometimes one is churlish enough to 2
desire divorce for such a pair, as in
the case of your contributor and the
collocation, "Dear Old Lady," says a
writer in Scribner's. Why is it no old
lady, not positively vicious, appears in 'I
speech or print nowadays without the r
adjective "dear" announc?g her?
Some of us will be-many of us
are-old ladies. Must we all be "dear '
old ladies"? Must all the pleasing and
interesting characteristics It has taken
us a lifetime to cultivate be obliterated
by this vague, sickly sentimental
Nowadays most old ladies are so s
busy working for public causes that c
they have not time .to protect their c
own interests as they should. But let 'i
us hope that after a while they will or- s
ganize a new association, to be called I
"The Society for the Promotion of (
Distinctive Characterizations for Old I
Ladies," and that it will have displayed 1
prominently on Its banners the slogan, c
"Down with the word 'Dear'!"

You see it was this way, from the
Athson Globe: ~Atchison lost popu
lation heavily In the last ten years.
according to the census returns just
made public. When Atchison's pop
ulation was returned as 18,159 ten
years ago it was part of a scheme to
throw the county population above
thirty thousand and thereby increase
the pay of county officials. And it I
availed the county officials nothing,
for D. M. Cain blocked the scheme.
Being on record as having 18,159 .n
1905 Atchison annually thereafter re
fused to make a new census and, in
spite of protests by state officials, kept
sending in the 1905 report. Weary
ing of the continual pressure it war
decided last summer to "take" the
loss and let the population go in at
what it really was. That was 152363.
Actually, of course, there has beent
a gain in population in ten years. Hun
dreds of dwellings have been built in
that time, the building permits in 1915
alone amounting to over one-fourth of
a million dollars.
