It is often claimed thai the American coplc are the mosi
fallible on earth. The late I'. T. Barnuni worked on tin- theorj
and demonstrated the soundness o( his theory until the day "i his
death, Tin' gullibility of the populace is evidenced bj the
necessity of i;tiiiK the blue sky laws in tlii- ami otherstatcs to
prevent, as tar as possible, their inhabitants from separating them
selves from their hard earned dollars to invest in all kinds of wildcat
ichemes that arc exploited by -nine smooth-tongued promoter.
Every day sound financial advisers arc urging people t- hold onto
their liberty bonds rather than part with them to invest in indtis
trial or other promotion scheme that a j;li! advertisement or -leek
advance man will assure them will pay fabulous rate- of interest.
Ami the same line of illustration mighl be continued almost indefi

It would he about a- reasonable to say one was knocking the

the law is being violated in Ottawa and soft drink proprietors are
known to l.e "cheating" almost openly. We might assure the
people that we had a bonedry town. That w uld tickle some, hut
it would not make it a fact, nor better conditions. We might claim
we have the best police force on earth, bul that wouldn't round Up
Ottawa's firebug nor -top the too frequent burglaries or act- ot
vandalism which are so much in evidence.
Years ago a hunch of kidders persuaded the people ot the Illinois
Valley that the drainage ditch the Chicago drainage canal in those

the river, that all damaged laud- would lie quickly and gladly paid

that (he increase in How of water in the river would bring

pollution of the river, the killing of the fish and general insanitary
conditions were almost ostracised from decent society because
they refused to kid themselves or he kidded by the exploiters of
the cheme. And man) suits for damages are still pending or have
been settled for a mere pittance because the claimants were worn out
by delays.

ing each of the WITS this country passed through in the oast
hundred and ten vears, it lias taken many years to arrive at a state
of tranquility. Following the war of 1S1 there was a period of
thirty years ot irregularly declining prices from the i

an advance of about a hundred and thirty-live per cent, in price-,
and another period of approximately thirty vears of instability in
prices followed, in 1896, he claim-', they were at the lowest point
