A thorough Investigation of tiio post

will be pure. If you bellevo you aro

And It may bo carried to a ridiculous

Carroll D. Wright says ''tbo wago

which will be composed of tho profit
sharing and co-operation ideat will
succeed It "Tho fashion, of this world
passeth away," says St. Paul, and the
fashion of paying for work in wages
may pass nway, although it has exist

to everybody tho exact equivalent for
his toll, No now method of compensat

have been heard since tho first em

complain that ho docs not have a fair
sharo of tho wealth bo assists In pro

for thousands of years does not fade
away In a day, even though tho ono
Mr. Wright talks about has defects,
ono of them being that workers aro al
ways striking somowiiero to get better
pay. Probably Mr. Wright docs not bo
llovo be will Ilvo to seo tbo day when
profit sharing and co-opcrntlon will
rule In tho Industrial world. Tho ideas
of worklngmen will bavo to chango
materially before they will surrender
tho certainty of tho wngo system, In
equitable though It may bo sometimes,
for tho uncertainty of tho profit shar
ing system. They would accept It If
business wcro nlwayn good and profit

them when lean years enmc. If It

do now for higher wages. Thcro would
