Appeal of Poverty
C1IK aroraga American eitinen doee not tnko the interest bi
should in the quwtion of Til K KI.I.M I NATION OF
1'OYKKTY, bccaUM our poor classes are different in rnee
ftttd eolor from tin- mod ( us. In tlic north the poor bImmi
are OOmpOMd of tin' recent immigrant who hnve not yet born able to
ninke 11 living -r wlio have failed to succeed in the new country, and
in Um BOUth tiny nrc OQf negfti brethren.
OBVIOUSLY WE SHALL NOT PUT AND END TO POVERTY BY
LEGISLATION. MUCH LEGISLATION IS NECES8ARY, BUT NO
CHANGE IN TAXATION OR IN THE DEGREE OR METHOD OF STATE
CONTROL CAN EVER GO WHOLLY TO THE ROOT OF THE TROUBLE.

Pocketbook of the Wife
Our Most Serious
By JAMES J. HILL. Kallroad Builder of the Northwest
IN the growth of the American republic we have regardod the
tarilT as of serious importance. We have political questions
, which seriously disturb business situations.
BUT THERE 18 NOTHING MORE IMPORTANT IN THIS
NATION OR THE LIFE OF ANY OTHER NATION THAN THE POCK
ETBOOK OF THE WIFE.
Wo do not produce as much n we might, PFCAUSE MEN
'AND W(Mi:. ARE LAZY WITH FARM LAND and do Mtf
take the beet advantage of their opportunity. If they did botf would
be cheaper, llonr much lower in price and the grOOB vegetable aupply
far greater than at the pre cni time.
Yet there is another point to Ml considered, a point which I have
considered for more than forty years in developing a railway system,
and that is how wisely or how ignorantly tho woman of the farm, the
wife. HANDI.KS THE POCKETBOOK which is under ber con
trol. The original question of eociul economics which we have to con
sider at the present timo is not the tarilT or the finances of one of the
richest gorernmonn b the world, but THE POCKETBOOK OF
THE WIFE. I emphatically slate that I do not moan the pocket
book of the husband, thi earning factor of the family, but the pocket
book of the wile, who has THE HOME and THE OHttDRW
