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. (Continued Next Week.) D. W. Timberlake.

I feel that the seed sown by the old greenback party years ago did enough to immortalize its name. Joseph Bowen, Kananga. O.: I lik The Independent very well and if j can have the time and other condi tions are favorable, I should like to contribute articles for the paper oc casionally if desired. (Come ahead. Ed. Ind.)

AN OBJECT LESSON 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- Lincoln Hide The Lincoln Hide & Fur Company, 92) R street, Lincoln, Nebraska, suc cessors to S.
