"I believe that Congress wll pass that amendment mme time. Hut for a long time to come you nn't get the neces sary thirty -SUl States to ratify that amendment." Mm.

Senator n'Oorman's announcement on Monday that he believes a l'emocrat should succeed Tost master Morgan has brought Into the limelight several men whose friends Insist that they are fully capable of stepping Into the Morgan shoes. Moreover, these names are likely to be brought forward In growing num bers because the Henator's announcement Is taken to mean that lie Is prepared to fight for that Democrat who shall ap pear to be inos; available for the Job While In ouWylng districts the 'elec tion of a postmaster is usually regarded as the special province of Oongrsesmen the award in New York will probably ls left to the senator. Proiti aii Indications the Tammany men. who largely compost the Congresstnn.il deleg.. tin-i from Man hattan, are content to leive this dellcatt matter Iti the hands of Mi- 0Qormnn.

MEN OF THE OLD STONE AGE By HENRY FAIRFIELD OSBORN President of the American Museum of Natural History THEODORE ROOSEVELT says: "I regard your book as one of the real contributiono to productive American scholarship." This extremely readable volume promises to be the most important and complete work on human evolution which has appeared since Darwin's "De scent of Man," for the reason that it is the first full and authoritative presen tation of what has actually been discovered up to the present time in regard to human pre-history. All the known prehuman and human stages of development for the last five hundred thousand years are described as fully and fairly as the material allows. As soon as enduring remains of warlike and industrial life begin to ap pear, namely about one hundred and twenty-five thousand years ago, the author traces every step in man's economic and social evolution, and, finally, all the known stages of artistic endeavor. It is written in the lucid and easy style which has made the author's earlier philosophic work, "From the Greeks to Darwin," a standard reference for the early history of the theory of evolution.
