ci pts the modern idea that labor i.
not a commodity to be used in ac

economy. Perhaps Mr. Rockefeller
has come to the same view; but hr
"played the game" when it wa.« a
more ruthless game than now. and lii
wisely-bestowed philanthropj has no
ri xf relation to it.
As a captain of industry the twen
tilth century Mr. Ford is an import
ant figure in the readjustment nf our
industrial system. As a manufactur
er he has demonstrated thr tremen
dous saving in quantity production nf
-implied and standardized goods, lie
came comparatively late into thr

Hi.- workmen have been the best pa d

to be expected that the famous $5-a

raised to ?8. Notwithstanding some
paternal attention to the worker--'
private affairs, which some of them
don't like, Mr Ford appears to have
little trouble in getting help and
keeping it. Such question* as collect

under such circumstances but (he
broad principles of fair dealing and
generous recognition *W the worker a.

lish Bible. It i.~ first met with in the
German translation, which was the
Aork of Martin Luther.
Luther translated the words. "Hu
rum, his father," in II Chronicles >i,
IH, and iv, 16, as Hiram Abiff, and
the same reading is now to be found
in the Swedish version. Calmet, in
hi* dictionary of the Bible, has point
ed out that the word "Huram" signi
fies "high intelligenre," and say.- that
Hiram was called "lather" by Solo
ii on, and the King of Tyre, because
he wa.- the chief director of the work
on the temple. It is dear that Hiram
could not have 1 n the father either
of David or of the King of Tyre.
Old Masonic tradition runs that
about four years before ihe building
of the temple, Hiram Abiff, as the
agent of Hiram. King of Tyre, pur
chased some curious stones from an !
Arabian merchant, and was told thai
thej had been found on an island in J
the Red Sea. King Hiram at onre |
sent his agent to investigate, and In
had the good fortum to discover that
many precious stom s were there. |
among them an abundance of topaz, I
with which the King of Tyre adorn, d |
Im palces and temples.
