BRAINS AND GOVERNMENT.
IN SPITE of tho progress of seieneo ihe brain is something-
1ml little is known about.
Newspapers recently contained an account of tho re
moval of a large portion of a man's brain without appar
ently working great in.jnrv either mentallv or phvsicallv
to the patient.
Certain sections of the brain are supposed to be the
seat of certain functions, though recent experiments seem
to disprove and upset accepted theories.
At any rate, it is probable that when one portion of
the brain is removed, other portions assume, to-nn extent,
the work of tJie destroyed portion, a provision wo. find
throughout nature, which is forever upbuilding, restqring
It is not the size of the brain that counts, but its de
velopment. Some of the greatest characters of history
have been men with small heads. The shape of the head
can be and has been repeatedly entirely altered by
thought, even if the skull cannot be enlarged. We are told
that active brains have remarkably thin skulls, which
would demonstrate that brain cells absorb nourishment
not only from the blood directly but also from the adja
cent bone structure.
It is probable that only a small section of the
brain is utilized by the average person for other than
purely plisicnl functions. With many, the brain seems
to stop growth with the bodv. Few: adults make proper
use of their brain by study, thought and systematic devel
opment. ' '
There is nothing stationary in nature, hence what is
not developing is retrograding. That is why so many
people, who only use their brain in the mechanical ways
forced bv the necessitv of earning a living, reallv have
less thought capacity than when they left school years
This is an age of specialists, so we see more lop-sided
brain development, that is mental development along cer
tain lines, to the neglect of other lines, than ever before,
and that is what everv one should endeavor to reined v.
Heredity and environment govern and modify brain
capacity, but it is possible for any one, by persistent
effort, that is bv systematic use of his brain, to reach a
position above the average, in any chosen walk or in all
How many hours or minutes a day does the average
person, in any walk of life, give to mental development?
Precious few, hence humanity, despite the long centuries
of painful struggle, is still enslaved to superstition, pre
cedent and convention.
, A democracy is based upon the theory that every per
son has an equal voice in the government of humanity,
hence that government, to be ideal, depends upon the
mental development, not of the few, but of all. The time
.has gone. by when. the highly developed few should gov
ern the man aiul. the hope ol the iuturc and oL human
ity lies in the mental development of the masses.
The so-called Oregon system, that is the giving ot the
a man's brain and a woman's, except that women average
a little smaller in weight. Hut it is not the size of tho
brain, but its use, that figures. Women have had no
occasion to study governmental problems, no call to de
velop their brains along the lines that man has, but the
average woman will favorably compare with the average
man in mentality, (live her the same opportunity to de
velop that.man has had and she will undoubtedly prove
Ibis equal or ..superior in ci-vilizafioirand she has in the
Tho future of the nation lien with the brain develop
nient, not of paVt of the people, but of all, and woman
must do her share, not only iudirectlv, but directly.

he persisted in silence as fur as tho an olicrarchv of selected representatives, will never result
in a perfect government until the masses are mentally
develeped: The prostitution of representative govern
ment has resulted in its overthrow, perhaps temporarily,
as a corrective of existing abuses.
The principal virtue of the Oregon system lies in its
educational value, in the teaching ot humanity to take an
interest in governmental affairs and to study government.
It awakens dormant possibilities in all.
veloped minds of humanity. The chosen officials are apt
to represent a fair average of the people, and as the aver
age of the many is lower than the average of the few,
until the people learn by experience and study more about
the science of government, officials are apt to reflect

is the interesting of people in the existing abuses of gov
ernment and awakening them. to a. study of public mat
ters. JBound by the fetters of partisanship the nation
has drifted into a plutocracy that threatens its destruc
tion. , Socialism, so condemned for its ultra-radicalism, is
doing more to arouse the masses to a study of conditions
than all other political parties together. In its fervor and
unconventionality, in its fanning the flames of discord,
in its possible use by the unprincipled, if uncontrolled,
its red flag may become a danger signal to the nation, but
its educational work is unquestioned. Its radicalism, even
its rabidncss arc essential to secure it a hearing, to crack
the shell ot conventionality, and most ot those who sweep
ingly condemn it haven't had a new idea in twenty years.
No democracy can travel the road to perfection, to
idealism, with only half the people studying and partici
pating in government. For this reason, if for no other,
it is essential that women be given the same rights th.ft
man has arrogated to himself. To call a government a
democracy with half of the people denied franchise is
Man made the present government and all its ills. Man
created the laws that permit the creation of the billion
aire and tho pauper, that permit poverty and hunger to
exist in a land ot abundanco, that allow a lew to monopo
lize the natural resources and exact tribute trom the
many, that sanction worklessncss'and prostitution, that
phce the dollar above the man. '
Women average better than men. Woman will noti
sanction ills that man does. With women participating,
the moral average ol the electorate will bo higher, and
laws, which reflect the average of the electorate, will
necessarily be better. Women are entitled to the right
ol studying and participating in government, m working
out the problems of humanity side by side with man.
All that is good in a man he gets from his mother, all
that is noble, all that is unselfish, all that is really worth
while. Is it possible that with such women helping direct
government that better laws and better conditions will
not bo forthcoming?
