What Our Reading Indicates.
In an article in the November Atlantic Monthly the head of the
great publishing house of Macmillan & Company was deploring the
present day taste in books. He stated that statistics showed that
the great demand of the public was for books of fiction and largely
for present day fiction and that the demand for instructive worth
while literature was continually growiingless. These statistics had
been gathered from the librarians throughout the country. The
writer also spoke from an experience for which he had paid dearly,
as he said that often books which were authoritative treatises on
important subjects of high literary merit would have such a small
sale that the returns would not pay the cost of publication.
We all of us know what perfect trash some of the best sellers
in recent years have been ; of no merit from a literary or educa
tional standpoint ; just slush. Still they seemed to strike a popular
chord and brought fortune to the authors and publishers. They
gave their readers a few hours of passing pleasure, but were neither
instructive nor taught a moral lesson. The articles carried by some
of the most popular magazines are, if possible, worse. i
It is indeed to be regretted if the people are losing their taste
and love for good literature, for that which is elevating and instruc
tive. A knowledge of history, a certain familiarity with the best
in literature, the classics, are necessary in the making of an edu
cated and cultered person. It is important to keep welf posted upon
current events, to keep in touch with things about us, but to really
understand these things we must also know something of history
and the effect that certain movements have had on the development
of mankind.
If the condition exists which the author of the article referred
to deplores, and we fear there is some truth in his statements our
system of education is to blame. In the-schools should be created
in the children a desire for knowledge and a love of good literature.
If this is not done our school system is a failure. It is not what
the child actually learns in the school room which is of real impor
tance, but the ambitions and aspirations that teaching inspires.
Why Do You Vote a Certain Ticket ?
Practically every man the first time he voted, voted a straight
ticket and most men voted the same ticket their father voted. Few
iirst voters know little of the principles for which the different
parties stand. From childhood they have been Republicans or
Democrats depending solely upon the political affiliations of their
fathers. This is only natural, especially if their fathers were strong
partisans. The home teaching and home environment control'their
Having selected their party most men continue through their
life voting the same party ticket. Leaders change, principles
change, but the rank and file of the parties remain steadfast to the
party name.
That at twenty one a man from sentiment should vote as his
father did is only to be expected, but that as he becomes older he
should allow that sentiment to control hjs opinion seems strange to
us. That ninety nine out of a hundred first voters, vote the same
"ticket as their fathers is a conservative estimate. That ninety per
cent of the men continue through life members of the party of their
first choice, is also a conservative estimate.
When the party leaders decide upon some course of action, most
of the members of the party concur in their decision. Whatever
one party does, the other party denounces as wrong. The members
of one party can see no good in the things done by the opposing
While there was probably a greater switching of members of
parties in the election just held than ever before in Ohio, we think
it is placing the estimate low to say that seventy five per cent.3 of
the votes received by the candidates of the Republican and Demo
cratic candidates for governor came from men who have been vot
ing those tickets for years. We also state without fear of contra
diction, that if Gov. Cox had been elected on the Republican ticket
in 1912 and with the aid of a Republican legislature had done the
things which he did, that the Republican leaders, organization men,
would have fought as hard for him as they did against him and that
almost all of the Republican newspapers in the state would have
fought for him as strongly as they have bitterly opposed him. Also
that the Democratic leaders, organization men, would all have been
against him. They would have called him the same names that the
Republicans have called him and the Democratic newspapers would
have bitterly assailed him instead of filling their columns with
matter in his defense..
Why is it that most Democrats can see no good in anything
that a Republican official does or anything wrong in the ptibiic
policy of a Demociat? Why is it that most Republicans can see
no good in the public acts of a Democrat and always praise the
public acts of Republicans ?
Is it because all men are naturally partisans ; that the partisan
ship they became imbued with as children control their action
through life ; that we are looking for things to criticize in the actions
of members of the opposite party and things to praise in the actions
of officials of our own party ?
Is it not foolish to allow our partisanship and our prejudices to
control us in the conduct of our public business 'I We do not allow
these things to enter into private business and our public business
must be put on the same plane as private business if it is ever con
ducted in the interest of the people.
A number of the candidates at the recent election are convinced
that the Annanias Club is theargest organization in the world.
Now that the election is over the partisan press will resume
printing the news and their readers maytbelieve some part of the
things which they read.

Light Your House and Barns Cook Your Meals
With Home-Made . Acetylene
And Make Your Acetylene With a
Pilot Lighting Plant
Pilot plants make Acetylene automatically a little at
a time as you use it in your gas cooking" stove and in
your lights distributed throughout your house, your
barns and out-buildings. You simply fill the generator
with the gas-producing stone "Union Carbide" and
water about once a month.
Pilot plants are approved by The National Board of Fire
Insurance Underwriters.
All told, over 250,000 country homes are using Acetylene
made the Pilot way. ,
A complete Pilot plant, consisting of generator, pipes hand
some light fixtures and gas cook stove, can be installed in any
country home in a couple of days' time.
Such a plant is a permanent improvement and will furnish
you with the cheapest, safest and most practical light and fuel
now available for country home requirements.
