JAZZ AS A STIMULANT.
A soap factory in ' Connecticut,
having a shortage of help in the
wrapping room, Installed phono
graphs and dispensed jazz music
during working hours in order to
make the work more attractive. The
immediate result was a rush of ap
plicants. The girls certainly liked
that jazz music.
Another result, exceeding antici
pation, was that the girls did more
work. The music "jazzed up" their
spirits and bodies. They, felt more
like working, and they accomplish
ed more than before, with less fa
tigue. This need not have surprised any
body. It is a familiar phenomenon
in the south, where from time im
memorial it has been customary to
start gangs of negroes to singing in
order to cheer them up and get
them to move faster. Lively music
acts as a stimulant on nearly every
body, just as doleful music depress
es. Look what a good marching
tune does to a troop of soldiers or a
crowd of civilians.
Thus jazz at last comes in for a
good work. Instead of " distracting
minds, jangling nerves and destroy
ing human energy, as some critics
have maintained, it may be used to
increase energy and efficiency.
Let us hope, however, that if jazz
is made a general adjunct of indus
trial work, or any other kind of
work, there will be music of a more
soothing nature after the day'9
work is done. Surely no human
being can stand jazz day and night.

Nobody has charged that the
American shoe feialler makes the
200 per cent attributed to his Brit
ish brethren, or that the American
clothing retailer gets a correspond
ingly large profit. But there are
certainly inexcusable profits being
made somewhere in the shoe and
clothing business, and the aggregate
profit exacted from the consumer is
certainly more than either industry
as a whole has any right to.
Shoes and clothing are almost as
vital as food. Profiteering in them
is Just as intolerable.
THE HOBO'S DEFENSE.
A hobo writes to a newspaper an
interesting exposition of his point
"1 would like to ask what right
any one has to pity a hobo! As I
write I am lying under a big, shady
tree. I am free I wcrry about
nothing. The birds Ringing above
have nothing on me when it comes
to liberty. Just a little ways oif arc
the yards of a big railroad with its
trains coming and going constantly.
Any time it suits my fancy I can
travel, and it matters not to me
whether the 'railroads are returned
to their owners or taken by the gov
ernment, t will ride them anyway.
Why should I envy the busy folks
of. the city 'wearing themselves out
inside of skyscraper"; living their
conventional cut-and-dried lives, do
ing the same thing over and Over
again 365 times a year? I pity
"I work when I want a few dol
lars. When I get thirty or forty
dollars or a 'stake', I hand in my
resignation and am strictly my own
boss while it lasts. I consider my
self a thousand times more fortu
nate and happier than many who
are shut up in factories and offices
and tied down to jobs. I have found
my happiness on the road."
The letter justifies, to the hobo.
his hobo existence. But he forgets
a few important things. Without
this civilization he scorns, the pro
duct of other men, he could not lead
the happy hobo life. Without the
labor of other men there would be
no railroads. There would be no
workshop or factory where he could
cam hia stake at need. There would
be no cheap newspapers to- tell him
what the problems of other men
about railroads or other matters.may
be. There would be no shelter for
his winters, no hospitals to care
for what wound or illness he may
acquire on, the road. There would
be no provision for his old age.
The hobo may be happy in his
way but it is a selfish way. lie is
a parasite upon the labor of the
world. Other men pity him not
for his freedom nor his shady tree,
but for the fact that by his parasit
ism he has lost the greatest happi
ness in the world that of the self
respecting worker. And he has lost
the happiness of home joys and
children and the chance of a future
when freedom and shady trees and
sunny roadsides have Tbecn well
earned, and are therefore - all the

the saying goes, don't get mad and

HE WOULD WALK
FLOOR FOR HOURS
Had Smothering Spells And Could
Hardly Breathe Suffered
"I have been in poor health for
twenty-six years, and have tried
many different medicines and treat
ments, but my troubles were not
overcome until I commenced taking
Tanlac," said C. D. Williamson, who
is employed as engineer for the
Twin City Pipe Covering Co., and
who lives at 1060 Everett Court, St.
Paul, Minn., the other day.
"I suffered from stomach trouble
and indigestion during all these
years," he continued, "and when I
commenced taking Tanlac, I had
given up all hope of ever finding a
medicine that, would do me any
good. During the past year I took
six different treatments, but I didn't
get any relief at all. Everything I
ate soured on my stomach, and I
would be bloated up with gas for
hours at a time, and would have the
worst sort of cramping spells. Very
often this gas would get up into my
chest and cause my heart to palpi
tate so bad that I -could hardly get
a good breath, and when these spells
came on me at night I couldn't lie
down, and Just had to walk the floor
for hours at a time trying to get a
good breath. Sometimes my arms
and legs would go to sleep and I
would have to rub them for a long
time before I could use them. I
finally got so weak and run down
that I had to lose a lot of time from
"One day a friend of mine told
me that he knew a man who had
suffered exactly as I was, and that
Tanlac had brought him around all
right. Well. I thought that if it
had done that man so much good, it
ought to help me, and I commenced
taking Tanlac right away. I am
glad I took that view of the matter.
for my twenty-six years of suffer
ing is a thing of the past now, and
I am in better health in every way
than I have been for many years. I
ara completely rid of that stomach
trouble and indigestion. I have a
fine appetite, and eat just anything
I want and I never suffer a particle
afterwards. I never have those awful
cramping spells now, and my legs
and arms do not go to sleep on me
like they did. In fact, I am as well
and strong as I ever was in my life,
and I go to sleep as soon as I hit
the bed at night, and am dead to
the world until time to get up every
morning. I can do as much work
as anybody now, but I never lose
any time from the job. Yes, sir.
Tanlac was a godsend to me, and I
say a good word for it every chance
