Things You Want to
The German democrat dreams of an In
dustrial democracy and therefore he looks
upon the business of government from an
entirely different angle than do democrats
of Britain or America who dream of a
political democracy. This fundamental dif
ference must be kept In mind In consider
ing the relations between the rulers and the
ruled In Germany.. In other countries the
ruling class, whether aristocratic or pluto
cratic, ha been forced from time to time
to grant concessions to the demands of the
democracy fr a more equitable distribu
tion ot political power. In Germany the
ruling class has been forced to meet de
mands from the people for a more equitable
distribution of economic power by mak
ing concessions to socialism, But as a
matter ot fact the German people, although
they have been to a degree emancipated
from industrial slavery, are politically sev
eral generations behind their American and
British cousins. This might be very Sad
If It were not' for the fact that a great
many Germans seem to be content with
their advanced Industrial condition and
therefore do not care anything about poll
tics. Yet the fact remains that the German
never is for One moment left without a re
minder of the power of his ruler to con
strain and restrict his freedom of action.
It Is possible In ' England or the United
States to lives a long and busy life with
out ever coming Into direct contact with
any of the coercive forces of ruling power.
One pays his taxes, direct and Indirect, he
Is served by the postofftce, and he does
his share of talking politics, but unless he
becomes Involved In a crime or mlsde-
meaner, either as the wrongdoer or as the
victim, he never will feel the direct re
straint of the hand of authority. There
fore tt happens that when a constable in
terferes with his freedom of action he ts
quick to' resent authority, and Is inclined
rather to complain of the burden of the
law, forgetting the protection It affords
, The German attitude toward the govern
ment is entirely different. The German
expects to be ruled and controlled In every
detail of his relations with the community,
and he demands that his rulers exercise
similar paternal care over alt his neighbors.
Germans, as a matter of course, will re
sent an injustice; but they will not become
Indignant merely because the authorities
compel them to give a reasonable explana
tion ot their actions. Therefore, as long as
the rulers stay within reasonable bounds
and do not make the taxes too heavy, the
German will continue to serve the state
and obey his rulers without complaint.
The rulers of the people undertake to su
pervise and control every act tn which more
than one person Is concerned. For In
slanee,- one cannot employ a servant with
out the aid of the police; one may not re
move his residence without consulting the
authorities; one may not buy theater tickets
except at the time and place decreed by the
government; one may. not take the cab he
likes, but the one the policeman tells him
to take; and so on. The paternalistic con
trol over such little things of everyday life
la carried onward and upward, until in the
larger' functions or Industrial and ; com
merclal Germany the government Is prac
tlcally in control of every act
. To' illustrate 'what is meant by govern
ment tn Germany one may take the or
dinary domestic servant and consider her
relations with, her mistress. A housewife
desiring to hire a servant goes to the mu
nicipal . registry office, or employment bu
reau, -where she files a formal application
for a cook: In due time the cook appears,
and shows her official service book. On
the .first page this book sets forth In tab
ular fashion the fact that the Cook's name
Is Anna ScKmit, that She hails from Rheln
back, that she was born on September 1,
1887,-that she la short, that her eyes are
gray,' that her nose and mouth are regular,
that her hair Is llght; blonde, and that she
entered upon her career as a cook upon
suoh a date, as is attested by the official
stamp and seal of the police officer from
whom she obtained her first service book.
In this book appears, filled in the forms
provided, the name, occupation, social rank,
titles, if any, and residence of ench em
ployer, for -whom Anna Schmlt has worked.

willing to awathe their facet in thick veils

wear thick ttuff under their thin dress

likely to wish to go to such extremes and
therefore ."peaches and cream" complexion
Is not for all.
- Prevention from this extreme should usu
ally b had by the application of creams
at night, or-after the complexion has been
particularly exposed. It it well not to
wash It first, but at once to rub tn the
agent which may prove efficacious. One
such It made from fifteen grains of ole

ointment of oxide of tine. Thlt may be put

Strong applications to remove freckles

to this, because the new epedermla Is as

and, therefore, it more apt to become spot

such heroic treatment It should not be until

to )t a Serviceable cook, she employs hrr.
But the transaction does not stand "slon
between mistress and maid. The mistress
must fill out a form for the police, de
claring that on that day h,riaa employed
as a cook one Anna Schmlt, possessor of
a certain specified and numbered en-lce
book. The cook has to take her book then
to the police station, -and have' entered In
It by the police the fact that she hat taken
a new Job, and the police will fill In the
necessary data at to the residence, a xl
social position of her employer, together
with the date- of the new contract.
Anna Schmlt enters upon the discharge
of her duties, but ..the police have not
finished either with her or her ' tnlstrexs .
Every Monday tho "mistress . must affix
a 8 cent stamp to - the Insurance card,
which the law aayt the servant must pos
sess. Once ' a , month "the' .employer muit
take these cards with - stamps affixed tn
the postoffice for cancellatloti. Gcneroui
employers pay for the stamps themselves,
but many require the servants to. pay half.
If the card with Its stamps affixed Is not
exhibited at the postoffice at least once
a month, a policeman will - call every
Monday morning and see to it that the
stamp Is pasted on the card. This ft cents
a week Is credited to Anmt Schmlt's In
surance fund, and It means thaf when
the has reached the age. at 79 years she
will receive from the estate an old age
pension of from 3 to $5 a month. If she
marries she may drop her. insurance, and
receive a turn of money- representing all
the stamps she haa collected .vith interest
for her dowry. However, sht may keep
up the Insurance and get the tame benefit
In old age. .
But this is not all. It la provided In tht
contract that the servant may be dis
missed after a certain notice, not undet .
two weeks, and usually four to six weeks. '
The employer la legally bound to provlds
for the care of t..e-servant hvcase of til--ness
for as long as the notice term. In
Berlin, and in other large -cities, most
householders subscribe-$1 a year, to an
insurance company which undertakes to
provide medical help for' servants stricken
while at - work.-. These Insurance com
panies maintain a hospital and a corps ot
visiting physicians-and nurses..' -
Do the mistresses and maids complain
because of this red .tape and .. intimate
police interference 7 They do not. Of
course there are individual exceptions, but
the average mistress and maid will heartily
approve, of the system, . The mistress sayt
that it enables her to know , exactly what
kind of a servant the (is getting, where
she has worked and what she hat done.
The serVant cannot deceive' her In the
face of ,the certified record under the seal
of the police. Further the mistress says -that
the. enforced old age .insurance con
tribution" relieves her from any obligation
to extend private charity to aged servants
and that the small sum paid to the atck
Insurance society, relieves Tier' of the
bother of having to Care f of "sick servants
In the house. ' ' .
On the other handle" mai4 says, that she
It protected from cruelty and neglect be
cause she It able to call n the police to
tettle every question at Issue '.between her
and her mistress; that she is insured against
poverty and old age and ' against sickness
while at work, and that it is Impossible for
her to be the victim of Blander or a boy
cott in seeking to obtain few employment.
Of course, when a servant ha' done some
thing really bad, and the fact Is entered in
the service book it. la 'usual for,, that docur
ment to get "lost." But that will Involve
the recreant servant in all kinds of trouble
with the police and will make it well nigh
Impossible to setfure a new Joo. Both mis
tress and maid agree that this fact strength
ens tervanta against yielding to' temptation'.
Servants in Germany are hot so well paid
as those of England, and of course they re
ceive hut a mere pittance In ' comparison
to those tn America. But they are pro-,
tected In their rights, and they are Inclined
to look upon their rulers as guardians.
What tt true of mistress and maid Is true
on a larger scale of the relations between
factory owner and factory- workman, land
lord and tenant, merchant and customer.
