ABLE TO STAND PROSPERITY.
The evils which many pessimists predicted would re
sult from the Ford plan of profit sharing are not mate
rializing. Now, at the end of the first year, the practical work
ings of the plan can be fairly judged, and results seem to
be all in its favor.
Much was said, a year ago, about disturbance of indus
trial conditions and relations that were bound to follow
the payment of wages higher than those fixed by the
secred law of supply and demand. It was also declared
that free-born American workmen would not long submit
to the dictation and control of their conduct and expendi
tures. It has turned out very different; The pressure of "la
bor" has been, not to escape from the rules, but to come in
under them, and so highly is that privilege esteemed that
many workers, for one or another reason ineligible or di
qualified for inclusion in the favored but coerced class,
have exhausted all their ingenuity in devising tricks for
bringing themselves beneath the tyranny they were ex
pected to hate.
Durng the first year's operation, the Ford employes
under the profit sharing plan have increased their bank
accounts by 1:50 per cent, taken out large amounts of life
insurance, and paid nearly $1,200,000 on homes bought on
contract.
In other words, they have not wasted, but have "salted
down" most of the additional income received in the wy
of dividends and bonuses.
Judging from what they have done with the bulk of
their additional income, the "moral ruin" to which they
have been exposed is of a kind which most American
workmen could stand indefinitely without serious detri
ment. ,
What it was predicted would prove the worst part of
the Ford profit sharing plan is proving to be the best part
of it. It is teaching its beneficiaries the way to indepen
dencc through saving.
THE COLONEL'S WORDS AND WORKS.
Colonel Roosevelt has made a bitter attack on Presi
dent Wilson and his policies, and one that would leave t!i
ox-president in much better position if be had never made
it. He begins his attack with these words: ' "An astonish
ing proof of the readiness of many persons to pay heed
exclusively to words and not at all to deeds is supplied by
the statement of the defenders of the administration, that
President Wilson has kept us out of war with Mexico."
Colonel Roosevelt's words are apt, especially if applied
to himself and his course, both during and after his occu
pancy of the White House.
Is not he and his career "an astonishing proof of the
readiness of many persons to pay heed exclusively to
words and not at all to d-eds?" Is it not a fact that his
reputation and his popularity were based on words en
tirely? In other words, is not the Colonel a notable ex
ample that words and nerve push for the front place or
I he stafe and directly under the flash light are the secrets
of most political successes? He should be the last man on
earth to blame people for accepting words in lieu of deeds.
Here is a little editorial statement for lady readers of
the Capital Journal only: The war has so interfered with
the millinery business and caused an over supply of ost
rich feathers that they can now buy a whole ostrich for
much less than a single feather used to bring. Feathers
that used to sell for .$200 a pound now bring only $87.r0,
and recently in South Africa 20 ostriches "were sold at
$1.25 a piece. The only drawback is that if the feathers
become cheap thev will no longer be stylish, for it is "far
fetched and dear bought pleases the ladies," according to
the proverb. 4
Now that Turkey has become a party to the war it is
developing that it is as good a single-handed liar as even
the most eminent of its contemporaries. It is also show
ing it can sink ships and win victories, on paper, as easily
as any of the others.

A man has been convicted in New York of imperson
ating a congressman, and sentenced, to the penitentiary
for two years therefor. Was not the act itself sufficient i
punishment ? How .does it size up with what another New !
York judge a few days ago gave the man who stole two !
million dollars? Is it a more heinous offense to imperson-!
ate a congressman than to rob a lot of working people of
$2,000,000? It would seem so. !
From several sources comes the report that cholera is '
prevalent in the camps of some of the warring nations, :
and especially in those of the Austrian army. Once start
ed, there are no bounds within which this plague can be'
confined, and it will probably sweep through all the
armies. If it does get a fair start, there will be some-j
thing to fight that neither bravery nor strategy can over
come. I
Uncle Sam has just announced that it will require a 1
trifle of a few millions more than a billion dollars to run :
his farm for a year. This seems like a big sum, but the
nations of Europe are spending that much every month ;
in an effort to wipe each other off the map. Still it costs
Americans, in round numbers, $10 a year to keep the old
ranch up to date.
Germany has voted a supplementary war .budget pf
$1,250,000,000. This is just in addition to a like sum voted
a few months ago and about which she has hardly yet
ceased to "point with pride" as having been subscribed in
a few days. These sums will have to be paid maybe; and
with others yet to come will mean several real hard days
work for someone.
Italy has managed her affairs splendidly, keeping out
of the war, but at the same time in such position that she
can and will demand a goodly share of the spoils should
the allies win. She also stands to get some of the white
meat should the Teuton side be victorious.
That was a broad-minded Hindu who, when he heard a
comrade speaking slightingly of the Germans as fighters,
rebuked him by saying: "It is a great country which can
make war -on five powers. Thev are brave men who can
fight and dies as the Germans do."
A Kansas divine says the European war will be the
means of spreading the gospel throughout the world. If
this should prove true, it is to be hoped the converts will
behave themselves better than the leading Christian na
tions are now doing.
While the philanthropists are talking so much about
protecting the girls at the Panama exposition, would it
not be well to make some provision for the protection of
the boys?
"On to Belgrade" is the only slogan of that character
that has won out so far, and it is still a long ways to Paris,
Berlin and several other places, as well as to Tipperary.
Ananias may have been as rapid-fire a liar as his mod
ern prototype, the official news agencies of the warring
nations, but his range was not so great.
Uncle Sam is running his store just now with the free
delivery plan cut out. The buyer must get his goods home
as best he can.
Anyway, Japan can boast that it finished its part of
the war while the others were only getting ready to begin.
