ALU THEIR DEMANDS GRANTED First Strike In History, at Rome 310 Vears B. C Resulted In Vic tory for Strikers. While rummaging in ancient books for some special information about the Roman republic, I happened on a passage from Livy which gives an ac count of the first strike recorded In history, as far as 1 know, writes C W. Pafflow In Typographical Journal The strike was engineered at Rome S10 years B. C, and the account re ferred to will be found in book 9, chapter 30. The story runs as fol lows: "The public pipers, or flutists, a part of the religious establishment, called a strike and then left Rome and went to Tybur, a nearby town, because the censor had forbidden them "to feast and carouse in the temple of Jupiter, which had clways been their preroga tive. There was now nobody to fur nish the music at the sacrifices and festivals. "The people, with pious concern, feared that the wrath of the gods would fall upon them. The senate sent messages to Tybur to prevail on the musicians to. return. The strikers held out Then the Tyburltes tried to persuade them, but with no more suc cess. 'The astute citizens, however, know ing the weakness of the Roman pip ers, hit on a plan. They feasted thera and plied them with old wine until they were drunk as lords. They then bundled them Into carts and sent them back to Rome. "When they woke up next morning they found themselves in the forum. The people flocked around them and welcomed them with delight; for no pipers, no religion. The citiz?ns urge 1 them to go to their usual duties. The pipers agreed to do so If their old priv ileges of carousing In the temple and masquerading cn the streets nine days in the year were allowed them. Their demands were granted, and the strik ers returned to work." The Philosophy of Greed. Says that eminent financier and humanitarian, John W. Gates: "To be successful you must have more brains than henrt." That is the religion of the dollar, the cardinal tenet in the creed of the money lover. It represents the alpha and omega of his operations in the realm of things financial, and he cm ploys It to bolster up his sordid be lief that the end always Justifies the means. It all depends upon what Is meant by the word "success," however, we think. If th mere matter of accu mulating money is the ultima Thule of. success, pcrlnps Mr. Gates is right. Doubtless the maxim fits his iwn peculiar case precisely and to an exact dot. Happily that is not the gen eral conception of success; we are optimistic enough to believe it no less than to hope it. A lot of successful people in this world live in cottages, and do not ride in automobiles and take European trips. They are suc cessful because they are contented snd satisfied with the simpler thlngt of life. They sleep well at ni::hf they digest what they cat. They iool the whole world in the face, for the; owe not any man. They have mor heart than brains, in Mr. dates' phi; osophy, and hence are not successful. Washington Herald.
