Disturbances Go Far Back Into
Apostle Paul Is on Record as Having
Created Dissension Among the
People of Ephesus by His
Preaching of Christianity.
Whllo tho matter of Lnbor day Is
Milder consideration, tho question
rifles: What Is labor? Webster
Slvca as his first definition: "Toll or
exertion, physical or mental."
William D. Wilson, secretary of tho
department of labor, gavo tho follow
Ins as his conception of tho Idea:
"Labor Is any mental or physical ac
tivity othor than that engaged In sole
ly for ploasuro" a definition showing
brain at onco practical and analytic.
Mr. Powdorly would narrow this
aomowhat by defining labor as "any
exertion, mental or physical, not In
dulged In for pleasuro and for tho ben
efit of mankind."
Doctor Coultor of tho cousub bureau,
an export on such matters, would glvo
an oven broader scopo to tho word. Ho
doQncs labor as: "All oftort, whothor
znontaf 'df "physical."

latter-day philosophers to prophesy

Period of Stress Ahead of the
American Worker.
Labor Day an Excellent Tlmo to
Think of the Future That Mutt
Be the Result of the War
In Europe.
Every American, whothor ho works
with his hands or with his head, will
tnko full advantago of Lnbor day, the
laBt of tho summer holidays; ovory
ono will appreciate tho fact that thero
is a long period of work ahead of him.
This fall and winter Is euro to bo
a tlmo of readjustment in many lines
of American commcreo and labor, duo
to the European war, which not only
shuts off Bomo of tho things we buy,
but Is filling our warehouses with
many of tho things wo sell. How to
mnnago without tho particular things
wo havo nlwnys Imported and how to
get a market for tho things Europo
cannot buy must engago our serious
attention for months, perhaps for
years. Thero may bo bomo failures In
tho effort to readjust, but thero will
bo moro successes, nnd great ones. No
doubt about tho futuro need bo in tho
henrt of anyone
Tho best thing about tho wholo sit

ness world and tho peoplo In general.
They enter upon a combat with un
certainties with tho old Yankco con

Bclves, clotho oursolves, warm our

tlmo and adjustment. Thoro will bo
no hard times If tho hard work Is
well tackled.
Business must not wnlt "until tho
war Is over," for nobody knows when
that blessed day will bo. If wo nro
prepared for a long war, so much tho
moro prosperity If tho war is brief.
It Is a splendid tlmo for every

Public Ideas Have Had a Significant
Change In a Comparatively
Few Years.
When tho French nrlstccrat beforo
tho grout roolutlon was asked as to
his chief sorvlco to society, ho replied,
"To havo been born." Ho felt that hla
mere presenco In tho world conferred
an honor on his couutry.
That has been tho attltudo of privi
leged classes of all tlmo. But a now
ideal has come into men's minds tho
Ideal of labor, of Borvlco to tho com
munity. Today tho public Is constant
ly asking men to Justify their Income
"What havo you dona to desorvo It?" Is
tho question. "By what service to bo
doty havo you earned your monoy?"
It used to bo considered perfectly
proper to wntor tho stock of great pub
lic Borvlco corporations. Dut now pco
plo havo cono to sco this means to
gift an inconio without working for It,
and public sentiment Is shutting off
tho prnctlco.

Great Care Should Be Taken In Selec
tion of the Most Substantial
Roofing Material.
If you woro without preparation or
plan, rudely placed In a wilderness,
your first thought would bo of food
supply nnd your next of Bholtor, for
theso aro tho two inoBt vital necessi
ties of mankind. It to therefore
natural that tho best thought, and
study aro put upon theso two essen
tials. Moro forward stops havo been
taken In tho building Industry in the
past fifteen years, as regards comfort,
sorvlco and architectural boauty than
In tho fifty years previous. 4
Only in recent years has tho hand
ling of cement In building work boon
understood properly, and progress Is
still constantly being mado with It.
Modern hotels and ofTlco buildings
aro bolng equipped with shoot motal
mouldings and steel voonored doors.
Nearly overy Important ohnngo In
building construction Is away from
tho fire hazard of wood.
Ono of tho most significant dovolop
menta of recent years ia tho crushed
slato surfaced asphalt shlnglo which
Is, on now construction and old, rapid
ly supplanting tho wooden nrtlclo.
Thero nro many reasons for this. The
slato surfaced shlnglca add beauty to
any building In fact, thoro is really
no comparison from nn architectural
standpoint. Crushed slato of pleasing
tints of rod or green, Is omployed aa a
surfacing. Tho shingles nro uniform
ly eight Inches wldo and nro exposed
four inches to tho weather. No paint
ing la necessary aa tho red or green
crushed slato is natural and thereforo
cannot fade
Tho purchaser, howovcr, ohould
guard himself against buying a Blato
surfaced Bhinglo that is not guaran
teed by a rcllnblo and rcsponslblo
manufacturer. Thoro nro so many
kinds of roofing and Bhlngloa on tho
market today each claiming to bo tho
best that It becomes necessary for tho
buyer to get nomo satisfactory nssur
anco thnt tho roofing or shingles nro
