The Curious Person had been reading the Chicago dailies, which is bad for any man, and was very much disturbed of spirit 4 Here was a man named Peter Bartzen in charge of the county affairs who was just playing hob with everything, and no one seeming able to do anything with him. You could see in a minute from the papers what a terrible per son this Bartzen was. They even coined new wojds from his name "Bartzenism" and "Bartzen esque" and words like that. Then they said that Bartzen cared nothing' for law, nor order, nor justice, nor the wishes of other people, and just went ahead doing the most terrible and illegal things. And the funny thing Was that no one seemed to be able to put a stop to it. You can see how it was with the Curious Person. He...

"Aw, Bartzen ain't got no horse sense," said the 'Low Politician. "He'salways fightin' about some thing, an' he wont let well enough alone. Then he's bullheaded. 'When the men higher up try to call him off he talks rough stuff, ' and tells the men higher up to go to." "Why do the papers attack him so much?" asked 'the Curious Person. . "Ain't I just tellin' you? He's always star tin' something! An' then he's gone an' attacked a bunch of society women, and that got" him in bad with thepapers, of course." " Stilf, this did not.seem to ex plain everything. So the Curious Person wentvon until he came to another ' sort of Politician one who wore -gloves and manicured his finger nails.

girls of 14 and 15 were being given "by the representatives of the county to improper persons, who ruined their lives. "Of course, there was onlv one thing for Bartzen ' to do about v this, and that was to keep quiet. The girls were only helpless wards of the county, you know, and of no consequence. Not one of them had any political influ ence not even a single vote. "But Bartzen got right up and said what he thought about the thing, laid the "responsibility on the society women. "So, of course he got in bad. Why, he even made some society women appear before the Civil Service Commissioners !" "And are these the reasons the newspapers are attacking him?" The Manicured Politician look ed exceedingly pained. . "Don't you understand," he said, "that the men who own the newspapers are in politics? And they can't get Bartzen to take or ders from them. He just swears at them, and goes his own way. So, of course, they use their pa pers to injure Bartzen withthe people. i "Then, besides, th...

About these Primary Planets he wpve his Satellites and Asteroids, in the shape, of many small phamph lets, lectures, etc., including "The Standard' which was published in New York City during the late '80's, and early '90's., When of fered hundreds df thousands of dollars if he wouhf drop put the "Single Tax" and maintain it as J .s,imply a bree J.rade paper, he, and his twov great lieutenants, Post and Groasdale, decided to kill rather than prostitute it. .

In closing his. handful of crude and unfinished mosaics on the Singte Tax, ,1 will quote from what 1 have elsewhere said about Henry George: ''His was one of the greatest mentalities, or souls of the ages. As a thinker, Henry George was a great philosopher: as-a stu dent, he was a master sociologist; as a specialist, he was a politico econoriiic scientist, as a liter'ateur and writer, he was a stylist. When it came to practical politics and constructive statesmanship, he was a "pot-boiling" zealot and practicallyapplying Single Tax er. It is doubtful, hpwever, jf any single human mind known to man during the historic period has ever influenced with such pro found and absorbing power, so large and varied a mass of hu manity in 30 years' time, as Hen ry George.

"Thenyou won't take notice of any complaints handed in to you or violations by the department stores tonight?" "No, except in the cases of old offenders. We intend to be len ient tonight, as the stores have re spected the law so well." Mr. Cohen's tone implied that his questioner must be consider able of a pinhead not to1 see the expediency of this arrangement. Next the state's attorney's of fice was secured on the 'phone. Mr. Wayman was not in, and neither were his assistant, but to a clerk in the office the following question was put: "Has the factory inspector's office any right to connive with the department stores in viola tion of the women's 10-hour law?" . Not being a lawyer, the clerk's answer was short and to the point, though he did not quote from any authorities, and, was not talking in an official capacity. "...

Jesus .went up and -down the world holding out white hands of love and peace in benediction upon humanity, saying, in his tender compassion, "Let us love one another." And because his words were so simple, so understandable, the world has clung to Him through ages of fear and doubt and dis putation. More and more the Christ spirit triumphs among men, and it triumphs because it is the spirit of perfect love. It takesno scholar to grasp that spirit. Every human heart has felt some measure of the love that makes for human brother hood ; there is none who cannot understand what -"peace, good'will toward men" means. x r Only as that spirit of love works its way among men, touching them to nevJ kindness, to mercy, to justice, can Christmas really be celebrated in the world. Whosoever has hated his human brother, whosoever, high or low, has wrought against his fellow, whosoever has withheld sym pathy and service from his neighbor that man, be he ever so pious and prayerful, has never enter...
