Our Country Must Be

United

IN this time of unprecedented national peril and world peril, America must be strong I with the strength of unity-one nation. America must be bound together, as it is

today, not so much by the machinery of Government, as by Ideas, held in common by all and fully exchanged, so that all the people throughout the country may understand and sympathize with one another. This is what has brought this great nation together and holds it together.

This result has been accomplished primarily by the Press-particularly the weekly and monthly periodicals and business papers. These periodicals have not local or sectional bias; they go to all parts of America, and serve all parts alike; their great service is in helping to bring all sections close together into one great nation, through a common understanding.

The New Books (Continued) of his character. It will be welcomed as a memorial by many of his pupils and his contemporaries, but it will also, we hope, inspire to a manly, Christian life many who never personally knew the great teacher. Wessel Gansfort. Life and Writings. By Edward

Waite Miller, D.D. Principal Works Trans lated by Jared Waterbury Scudder, M.A. Illustrated. 2 vols. G. P. Putnam's Sons, New

York. $4. Next to Wyclif, “the morning star of the Reformation," ranks the illustrious Wessel as a precursor of Luther. The authors of these volumes have redeemed from long forgetfulness a theologian greatly admired by Luther. Luther's famous theses assailed the abuse of Papal indulgences. Wessel attacked the system itself as unscriptural and harmful to morality. His attitude was distinctly Protestant, holding to the Bible as the supreme authority in religion, and to Christ rather than the Pope as giving unity to the Church. In his view of the sacraments he anticipated the most radical of the Reformers. A biography of Wessel introduces the estimate of him as a herald of the Reformation. Following this the more significant of his writings are here for the first time translated from their original Latin.

ESSAYS AND CRITICISM On Contemporary Literature. By Stuart P.

Sherman. Henry Holt & Co., New York. $1.50.

The author is at the head of the Department of English Language and Literature in the University of Illinois. He here discusses freely and unconventionally what he considers “ the requisites of sound literature” in different periods, using the work of individual authors to bring out his own views. These can be best indicated here by quoting two or three of his extremely interesting titles. Thus we have “ The Democracy of Mark Twain,” “ The Utopian Naturalism of Wells,” “ The Æsthetic Idealism of James,” “ The Æsthetic Naturalism of Moore,” 6 The Barbaric Naturalism of Dreiser,” and so on.

WAR BOOKS Defenders of Democracy. Edited by the Gift

A medley of good things from many famous authors and artists. There is something here to entertain every one, even if he opens the book with a prejudice against such collections. The reader, indeed, is twice blessed who buys this book, for not only will it interest him, but the purchase of it will help the families of our wounded sailors. France Bears the Burden. By Granville

Fortescue. The Macmillan Company, New York. $1.25. Readable sketches of war-time activities at the front and behind the lines in France. The sacrifices and the burdens so cheerfully borne by the French are accurately and vividly described by a war correspondent who has a record as a fighter as well as a writer. Harry Butters, R. F. A. : “ An American

Citizen." Life and War Letters. Edited by
Mrs. Denis O'Sullivan. Illustrated. The John
Lane Company, New York. $1.50.

A charming young soldier is here revealed. While the book will be of greatest interest to those who personally knew him, the descriptions of life at the front are so graphic that even the casual reader will be absorbed by them and regret the tragie finale.

But such a disastrous result is not only possible, but probable, unless the present law pertaining to second-class postage is repealed before it goes into effect. Postal legislation was enacted in the present Revenue Bill, which divides the country up into “zones " and increases the average carrying charge upon magazines and periodicals from 50 to 900 per cent.

These nation-binding periodicals are confronted with certain injury and destruction—which means loss to you personally and loss to your country. It will destroy a large part of the periodicals. You will be deprived of the magazines that have kept you informed on your country's problems, that have helped you in your work. Your children will lose the clcan publications that have entertained and helped educate them. And eventually, such magazines as do survive will cost you much more.

The Post Office Department has never been considered a money-making institution. It was established, as was the Department of Agriculture, for the benefit of the people. There is no deficit to make up, therefore

No increase is necessary. Last year the Post Office Department earned a surplus of nearly $10,000,000

The Post Office was never intended as a tax-gathering institution. It was basically designed to give service to the people—to all the people at the same rate. The Publishers are not trying to evade taxation. They will gladly accept any rate of tax upon their profits that may be levied. Most of them have gone on record as being willing to turn over to the Government their entire net profits for the period of the war.

This is the time of all times when America must be a united America-one nation strong with the strength of unity. Let your influence be used to that end and write to your Senator and Representative in Congress urging them to vote for the repeal of this law, which, unless repealed by the present Congress, will go into effect on July 1st. Every such letter will help.

Records of trucks are compared with those of former years, and this has aided the farm superintendent in establishing himself as an economic factor rather than an item of expense.

They are used in hauling hay, grain, corn, oats, and wheat to the grist-mills, and in many cases are used also for transporting milk cans from the farm to railway or interurban milk depots.

On the farm, motor trucks carry soil, fertilizer, garden tools, and farm products. They also haul shrubbery, plants, trees, and cattle. In an emergency the power of the truck can be used to drive an electric generator or water pump, to pull a plow, or operate a threshing machine. Formerly the operations that are now possible with a single truck required several pieces of special machinery that aggregated a heavy financial investment. Large estate owners

A motor truck with a specially designed body containing all the conveniences of an office and protected against highway bandits is used by the Chicago surface railway lines to carry the pay envelopes of thousands of their employees to car barns and other widely scattered districts.

In some cases the truck merely transports paymasters and large suns of money from one car barn to another. In other's trips of several miles are made into the country to pay off line and track men and gangs engaged in special construction work, such

truck of to-day. Nobody who has studied the problems and needs of the present will deny that the horse is doomed as an economic factor. His speed is about onefourth that of a truck under average conditions ; his carrying and pulling power is about one twenty-fifth that of the half-ton truck; his upkeep on the basis of twenty miles a day is nearly double that of a halfton truck; his energy decreases with time, while that of the truck is comparatively unimpaired. So the ratio of efficiency is all in favor of the truck.

It is now a familiar statement that the Allied victories at the Marne and before Verdun were largely due to efficient motor transport systems. The motor truck is playing a large and important part in this war. And when peace comes the truck will continue to become a more and more important factor in the business life of the Nation.

“ TO THE EDITORS, DEAR

SIRS:-" I am afraid that the point you have inade against the epistolary intolerance of preachers as a class is well taken. I judge that it comes not only from the fact that the preacher hears no * back talk” when he preaches, but also from the very general tendency among us to confound our theories of truth with the truth itself. We easily persuade ourselves that some one is undermining the foundations, and then we fight for the faith, when perhaps we are only bombarding someone's interpretation of the faith. The great need of preachers here is a union of vital piety and the scientific spirit that proves all things, holding fast what is good, and tries all the spirits.

I had not intended to say this when I began, but I do say it that I feel deeply indebted to the editors of The Outlook for a broader and profounder view of religious truth than otherwise I might have received. It is one of several agencies that has greatly illuminated me.

And yet you understand, don't you, that The Outlook is frightfully unorthodox and that Dr. Abbott is a heretic? Give us more of that particular kind of heresy, say I.
