This cynical remark was characteristic
of the age in which he lived, and ex
pressed the thought which dominated the
world for many years after his death.
But a change has come over the world
which has turned the whole thought of
mankind into more wholesome, construc

had the power exploited his fellows, today
the dominant idea is service and
In business particularly, is this idea
Today only those business institutions
which render to the public a definite,
specific service can hope to survive the
changed ideals of the world.
The Standard Oil Company (Indiana)
is bending every effort to conduct its
affairs in such manner as to conform to
these modern ideals.
It is the ambition of the Company to
broaden the scope and intensify the ser
vice it renders the public so as to make
every man who buys even a gallon of
gasoline feel that he is receiving the great
est possible value for the money he spends.
It is the Company's steadfast purpose to
make every product it manufactures of
the highest quality possible, thereby keep

IJvery serious reform is met by che
argument that human nature can not
be changcd. A Yale professor has
written a book on the idea. When
we suggest government ownership of
railroads and of ships, or even city
ownership of a eas plant, we are told
that it won't work because hum uns
are a selfish lot. Put any of them in
office and they begin grafting and
neglecting the public interest. Hence
the only thing we can do is to let
things run along as they are until
such time as human nature is made
The argument is as roo'ilsh as it is
common because we want government
ownership of certain things for the
very reason that man is by nature
selfish. We have given a Hill a rail
road monopoly of an inland empire
and expected him to act in the inter
ests of the public. We let a Morgan
manipulate our money and credit in
stitiutions in any way he sees fit. We
have been trusting to a few men to
market our livestock, to a few others
to mine our coal, to a few others to
supply us with petroleum products.
Both in reason and in practice we
have found that this trust in the few
•is misplaced. They, have proved even
more selfish than the general run of
humanity. The reformer urges that
the mistake be rectified by taking
the essential industries out of the
power of the few. He urges not that
human nature be changed, but that
autocracy is too much of a tempta
tion for human nature to withstand.
There are ways of diminishing
crooked public service, chief among
them being North Dakota's way of
centering power and responsibility.
The man who stands in the limelight
finds it harder to resort to shady
practices. As between crooked pub
lic service and crooked private serv
ice, the public has a much better ad
vantage with the former because it
can change personnel and policies at
the next election, whereas private
monopoly is well protected from pub
lic indignation.
With a number of important utili
ties and monopolies of necessaries
under public management, the aver
age man will have more interest in
his government. It will touch him
directly at more points. This increas
ed interest will supply the officers
and the limelight needed to make self

"I have been in bad health for over
twenty years and my condition lias
gradually been getting worse all the
time, but about a month ago com
menced taking Tanlac and now I feel
like a different man altogether." said
William How ley who lives at Deer
River. Minn., while in Abbott's Drug
Store in Dultuth the other day.
"As l'ar back as I can remember,"
continued Mr. Howley, ''I have been
bothered with stomach trouble and in
digestion. Even as a small boy I would
often have spells of sick head-aches
after meals, and would have indiges
tion in the worst way. As I grew up I
gradually got worse until 1 finally
reached the point to where everything
I ate would cause me to suffer some
thing awful afterwards. Those terrible
headaches kept me up, too, and
sometimes the pain was so severe it
would almost drive me wild. This
trouble just kept on until I was just
about all in, and had to lose a lot of
time from my work. Handling lumber
is no easy job, and I was simply too
weak and run down to keep at it.
"Finally Tanlac came along, and to
tell the truth, I had very little faith in
it, but I thought I would try a bottle
of it anyway, and that first bottle did
me so much good, I just kept right
on taking this wonderful medicine.
The more Tanlac I took the better I
got, and now I am in better condition
in every way than I have been since
