Having glanced at the conditions
out of which the force of demand
arises, and -having seen what It i
fact is, we now proceed to an investi
gation of the action of this force.
The force of demand acts unon the
supply of wealth. . These are common
ly spouen or a "demand and supply.
Whatever thing constituting wealth,
men, under the conditions named,
etrive to obtain and retain ;in posses
sion, becomes the object-of the force
of demand. It would seem superflu
ous to point out that there never was.,
and never tan be, any force of de
mand for anything that is incapable of
being made to perform any service
deemed beneficial to him, by man.
But strange a3 it may appear,' it Is
needful to call special attention here
to this, self-evident truth, which many
writers have tacitly repudiated.
The force of demand for the supply
of wealth, simple as it appears, is one
of the most complicated and difficult
matters to grasp in the whole rang?
of human knowledge. The supply j
not a unit. It is divided and in the
separate adverse possession of count
less individual:?. Each individual, cut
of possession of a given thing, whklx
he seeks to obtain, to be able to pro
duce the force of demand, must him
self be in the like possession of som
article or capability lor service which
he can persuade the possessor of thp
article he seeks would be more ben
eficial .to him than that now possessed
by him.
Thus each side must seek to obtain
possession of something possessed by
the other, and each mrst seek to re
tain possession of that which he has,
until prevailed upon to part with it.
Each side must, possess something
which the other believes can serv
that other beneficially, by supplying
some need; and each must be made
to believa that his need requires t'v:
thing possessei by the other..
When these conditions are found at
the same point of space and time, thj
lorce of demand is set in motion.
, Each side seeks to obtain - the
most possible of beneficial servict
required by his needs, for the relin
quishment of the least possible
quantity. He tacitly or consciously
recognizes the potentiality for ben
eficial service with which the thing in
his possession is endowed, as so much
energy under dominion of his own
will, and is impelled to hoard it and
to use it sparingly as he would tho
energy of his body.
There Is no guide or means of ascer
taining the relative quantity of thaz
force of demand acting upon each,
and each party Is condemned to a mere
mental estimate or valuation of the
degree of intensity with which that
force of demand acts upon the one
article relatively to the other. Its play
upon the one is regarded only as it Li
more or less intense than its play
upon the other.
Moreover it is not alonfi ihp pffnrt
of the two parties that enter into the-
struggle. Thousands of others strug
gle to obtain the one or the other ar
ticle, or perhaps both, and so increase
the complexitias of action of the for-.s
of demand.
Meantime the - parties engaged in
negotiating the proposed exchange,
each must include in his estimate or
valuation of the quantity of the force
of demand for each, not only the de
mand produced by his own efforts, but
also that demand produced by the
struggles of al! the others who strive
to obtain one cr the other of the ar
ticles involved. It is this complex,
mass of conflicting and intermingling
of the force .of .demand upon which
each must make his estimate or val
uation oi the final quantity of that
force acting upon each article.
Now,' it mut be settled here once
for all that thi3 estimate or valuation
is an estimate or valuation of the
quantity - of sthe force of demanl
for the article; and is not an act con
cerning the article itself. Where there
is no force of demand there can be no
&uch thing-as -an estimate or valua
tion. This .has been asserted in. . a
crude way by faying that "things for
which there Is nc demand are with
out value." But "value" is hot the
name of a thing.; When the quantity
of the force of demand for a thing ii
estimated or' valued, it is
that estimate or quantity of demand
that is meant by its "value." It is not
the value of the thing, but the
valuation of the quantity of th
force of demand for that thing.
The. misuse of "this'word, "value,"
arising from ignorance, is the cause
of much confusion.
It is not the name of a thing, like
the word "hor3e."
It. is of the same nature as the
words, -'weight," "height," "age,''
"length," etc.
Take examples of how these are
improperly used. We hear every day
the following;
What is the "weight" of that horse?
What is the "height" of that horse V
What is the "value" of that horse?
Now, each of these forms is imper
fect. The question as asked in each
case calls merely for a definition of
the word, "weight," or "height," or
"value.". It is evident when the ques
tion is: "What is the 'weight of that
horse?" that his weight is not dif
ferent from weight elsewhere. -But
what it is really desired to learn by
the question is not what "weight" es
sentially is, but "what is th?
quantity of weight of that partic
ular horse?"
We have physical appliances by
means of which we can ascertain the
quantity of weight of the horse, but
the. quantity of force of demand for
the horse is not ascertained by any
physical appliance to determine the in
tensity of the force of demand, but is
the result of a mere mental process
which we call an estimate or valua
tion of that force of demand. So
when we seek to learn the quantity of
that force of demand, we should say,
"What is the quantity of value of
that horse?"
Seeing then that value is simply aa
estimated or "valued" quantity of the
force of demand acting upon-a gm:n
article of wealth at a given time and
place, just as weight is a "weighed"
quantity of the force of gravitatic n
acting upon a ponderable bodv at c
given altitude, we shall find an in
vestigation of the whole theory of
weights and measures will greatly as
sist to a clear understanding of what
this vague term "value" really repre
sents. For it has been demonstrated
that value is not in the things which
constitute wealth, but is a "valued"
quantity of that force of demand which
arises from the expenditure of ener
gy in f fforts to overcome adverse pos
session of those things under a sys
tem which guarantees that posses
sion and prohibits the use of violence
"Value' is not an estimate of the
things constituting wealth; it is an
estimate or "valuation" of the quantity
of the force of demand for that wealth.
When we thu3 see what value really
Is and whence it arises, we perceive
how absurd it is to think or speak jf
value as residing in anything.

I feel that The Independent is a great
educator in the right direction, i "What
matters it if it appears under the iiamc
populist, democrat or socialist? I
feel that the seed sown by the old
greenback party years ago did enough
to immortalize its name.

In a Restaurant. . - ' . -
A physician puts the query: "Have you never -noticed
in any large restaurant at luuch or din
ner time the large number of hearty, vigorous
old men at the tables; men whose ages run from
6o to 8o years; many of them bald and all per
haps gray, but none of them feeble or senile?"
Perhaps the spectacle is so common as to have
escaped you&observation or comment, but never-
theless it is an object lesson which means some- ,
thing. ' - - ' .
If you will notice what these hearty old fel- -lows
are eating you will cbierve that they are
not munching- bran crackers nor gingerly pick
ing their way through a menu card of new fan
gled health foods; on the contrary they seem to .
prefer a juicy roast of beef, a properly turned loin
ot mutton, and even the deadly broiled lobster
is not altogether ignored.
The point of all this is that a vigorous old age
depends upon good digestion and plenty of
wholesome food and not upon dieting and an
endeavor to live upon brau crackers.
There is a certain class rf food cranks who ,
seem to believe that meat, coffee and manv other
good thingsare rank poisons, but these cadaver-";
ou, silky looking individuals are a walking con- . ,
demnation of their own theories. -
The matter in a nutshell is that if the stomach ,
secrets the natural digestive juices in sufficient
quantity any wholesome food wilt be promptly '
digt stcd; if the stomach does not do so, and cer- ,
ta n fcods cause distress one or two of Stuart's
Dyspepsia Tablets alter each meal will remove .
all difficulty because they supply just what each ;
weak stomach lacks, pepsin, hydrochloric acid,
diastai-e and nux.
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets do not act upon the
towels and, in fact, are not strictly a med cine
as they act almost entirely uron the food eaten, '
digesting it thoroughly and thus gives a much
m eded rest and giving an appetite for the next
meal. . .
Of people who travel nine out of ten use
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets, knowing them to be
r erfeUly afe to ufe t any time, and also having -found
out by expetience that thty are a safe
gumd sigainst indigestion in anv form, a id eat-"
mg as they have to. at all hours and a 1 kinds of ;
food, the traveling public for years have pinned
their faith to Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets.
All druggists sell them at 50 cents for full-sized
packages and any drue gist fr.rni Maine to Cali
fornia, if his opinion were asked, will say that
Stuart's Dyspepsia Tablets is the most popular
and s ccessfut remedy for any stomach trouble-
