THE STUDY OP MAN.
It is a notable fact that many
of the most prominont writers
and novelists havo found it neces
sary to withdraw into tho coun
try to get their best ideas of men
and city lifo. The socialist gener
ally lives in tho country, whore
he studies men and their ways
from a distance. In short, men
in the center of things havo too
little time to think and so really
know little of tho very men with
whom they associate. A man
who understands mon knows
that they need some good tonic
like golden grain belt boor, that
they wear out with constant
work and tind recreation and in
spiration it this delicious health
food. It rests and builds up
both mind and body. Order of
