This, from the author's preface, indicates that the new novel by the editor of Life is more on the lines of " Amos Judd," "The Pines of Lory” and “The Last American " than like his more recent novel, “Pandora's Box.” It is the somewhat romantic narrative of a woman and a reckless lover, whose control of waves of thought brings about exciting and significant happenings.

THE STORY OF A BIT OF
BY CHARLES E. FINCH Director of Immigrant Education in Rochester, New York
In a men's class in a Sunday-school a speaker had been telling the men about what was being done to make our foreignborn realize the advantages of American citizenship as well as sense its obligations. He had surprised his hearers by telling them that practically every third person in certain wards of their city was an alien ; he had stated that the evening schools were almost the only agency making an effort to help those who desired to take steps toward American citizenship; and he had closed with an appeal to every man present to do his bit in the great task of Americanization...
At the close of the talk one of the members of the class rose and said that he would like to relate an interesting experience which was called to mind by the remarks of the speaker. He then told the class that on going into his cellar to see whether some wood, recently delivered, had been properly cared for, he had discovered some writing on one of the bits on the outside of the pile. He picked it up and read, “I pledge allegiance to my flag, one nation, independent, with liberty and justice for all.” When Tony, who delivered the wood, was questioned, he said that he had learned the pledge in evening school and had written it on this bit of wood in his spare time.
To all who are familiar with this pledge it will at once be evident that this industrious toiler from across the sea had failed to record correctly one of the very important words. He had written “independent” instead of “indivisible.”
In this seemingly slight error lies the story. The foreign-born, left to themselves, limited by their own language, surrounded by their own people, and all too often only exploited by those from whom they have a right to expect help, come to see independence as the great thing in America, the good of the individual rather than the good of the country.
To-day, more than at any time since the Civil War, we are realizing the importance of “one nation indivisible.” We have gradually sensed something of the meaning of thirteen million foreign-born people in this country, numbers of whom are aliens who do not even speak our language, who do not come in contact with our institutions, and in whom we have taken comparatively little interest. We are beginning to realize that the American melting-pot, tended by no one in particular, has not been able to do all that was so innocently expected of it.
State departments of education are beginning to realize that their task is only partly accomplished when the education of the children of the commonwealth has receiyed attention.
The best results are being obtained in communities where there is definite and helpful co-operation between manufacturing establishments and the night schools.
The manufacturer and the educator doubtless have a large share in working out this problem, but we shall not reach the full solution until every American citizen has a far keener appreciation of the true value and real meaning of his citizenship. Like Tony, we must all be made to realize that - one nation, indivisible” is not only important but is abolutely necessary if we are to have “liberty and justice for all.”
-and are meeting reverses daily
They have been called to the
colors. They have entered the trenches. Their existence is imperiled every day by bomb and firebrand of alien enemies. Insurance companies report that firebugs destroyed nearly $50,000,000 worth of American property last year.
America's factories have gone to war, and they must keep to their trenches.
They must produce, produce, and then International Film Service
produce. This is a war not merely of man against man, but of food against famine, of a free people's factories against the Kaiser's factories.
Would you send your boy into the trenches with neither machine guns nor gas-masks? How then can you draft your factories into service without the best defensive weapons obtainable against fire ?
What the machine gun is to our boys Brown Bros., N. Y.;,
in the trenches against the onrushing Germans, so the Grinnell Sprinklers are to the onrushing flames. Undismayed by heat or smoke, the little mechanical sentries wait in military array up on the ceiling. Snap-snap-snap! go the sentries; not the rattle of guns, but the snap of mechanical triggers touched off by the heat. Instantly the enemy flames are routed and drowned by a barrage of
water. This is happening almost every Underwood & Underwood
hour somewhere among the many thousand great factories equipped with Grinneli Sprinklers.
No matter what type of automaticsprinkler system you have, it can be made proof against malicious tampering by alien enemies determined to burn your property. An electrically controlled automatic system does it. Better than several additional watchmen. We shall be glad to give you full particulars about this “ Sprinkler Supervisory Service.”
