perfection and contentment. I'rof. Oel

book Just published, copios of which he
has sent to various notables In science,
literature and philosophy, who have In
turn slven him words of commendation.
"Modern Paradise" la a graphic pen de
scription of an Ideal niodo of llVlng and
working. The author contends that "ef
ficient production, wtiltablo distribution,
wise accumulation, economical consump
tion and harmonious association may lj
attained to an Ideal degree by a very
simple adjustment, if the right persons
use the rlrht things In the right way."
Ho claims that under the "Modern
Paradise" method of living and working,
every man, woman and youth worker
will produce from $S to 110 worth of
wealth In a throe or four-hour workday,
and that every man, woman and child
worker, whether married or single, will
personally draw his or her own pa
checks for the labor each performs for
the association whether that labor be In
dustrial, domestic, or maternal; that all

The Florence Hills
T 18 a surprise! to almost
everybody who has not been
through the hills north of
Florence to find . how very
QSB'"?! ,)sutlful and picturesque
they are; how they appeal to
the artist's eye. This Section Is so very
different from any other part of the
state. There are no large fields of com,
no flat areas of grain, but one gentle
hlllRl'le after another, clothed with vine
yards, young orchards, strawberry fields
and patches of vividly green alfalfa.
In the spring the fruit trees are a mass
of bloom, blowing the sweetness for
miles. There Is a certain drive called
the Loop, which for sheer loveliness
would be difficult to match In any coun
try. One stnrts at the water works and
takes the river road, which turns and
winds at the foot of a heavily wooded
bluff on the very edge of the water. At
3 o'clock In the afternoon it is cool and
shady, and the great elms and cotton
wood trees rise like tall sentinels in the
midst of the smaller growth of willows
and oak and basswood. Our river is
muddy, to be sure, but so la the far
famed Danube, and the romantic Iser,
which flows through Munich. For those
who know and observe there la a dis
tinct and fascinating river life here at
Florence. Motor boats and rowboats,
and even the sailboats may be watched
any Sunday from the sand flat beyond
the iron bridges. There is enthusiastic
fishing, too, and if there is anything
more delicious than a very - small cat
fish Just out of the river, I haven't
tasted It no fish that are shipped In
here are halt as good. A few of the
Omaha restaurants realize this, and when
they are able offer "baby cats."

We must wander along up tho rood, past
tho L.'s, the W.'s. the It's and the K.'s:
here we take the right branch and go
down still closer to the marshes, till
finally we come to the site of the old
Lisa trading post Manuel da Lisa was
a Spanish fur trader. There is a tradi
tion that he came up the Missouri river
on a prospecting tour about 1806. Two
years later we know that he established
several small posts. He was one of the
Lewis and Clark, those brave and ad
venturous young Virginians, also saw our
river in and sent back niape and
dispatches from Nebraska to the presi
dent As one goes along the shore, one
thinks "perhaps on this Identical spot
they have walked." Then conies the dis
turbing knowledge that the reetleas old
Missouri cuts and changes Its course as
it wills. Anyway, one Is entitled to
one's dreams and fancies.
From the Lisa post I am templed to
branch oft half a mile to Big Spring, a
piece of property that it la perfectly
amazing some one doesn't develop.
Imagine a bluff, some JPO feet right
straight up, gorgeously wooded, and at
Its foot a clear, oold, sparkling spring
gushing out In a stream nearly as large
as flows from an ordinary pump. All
around there are pools and small brooks.
M. and I go every year for bunches of
water cress, which we greatly like with a
thtolt porterhouse steak. It to necessary
to have -lie eyes of faith this year to
separate the ruin from the natural
beauty. Alas, the chickens had taken
all the water cress! There wasn't a
handful for us!
Now, to get bark half a mile, and turn
went Underneath the first green hill. I
have been told that Blackbird la burled,
sitting erect upon his horse. As no one
knows exactly where this great Indian
chief actually lies, I am perfectly free
to see him in my mind's eye, sitting
silent and expectant In this green and
pleasant place, waiting for the final

side of a ravine, where there are enor

The Ponca school house and the Forgot
store are old landmarks. I wish the old
sign had been kept somewhere about tho
new store building which has replaced
the first one. Taking it away was like
pulling down an historic souvenir. Where
la It, I. wonder. .Surely not burned!
The macadam hill from the bridge is a
long, hard climb, but one's eyes are re
freshed by the rows and rows of grapes.
George Moore says a vineyard Is not
pictureeque. but I differ with him. A
whole hillside lined with vines, and with
the pickers' little houses and tents, (when
picking time comes), is most alluring.
At the crest of the hill the road forks
to the L.'s. There is one spot, where one 1
can look way down over the hills and see i
the white road rig-sagging up and down
through the trees to Calhoun. It re
minds me of a view I had In Rothen
burg. We stood, U and I, looking over

and the pure white road, lined with those

out stop or change, arriving there Thurs
day mornlns. May IX Its first concert
was given in Festival hall, inside the ex
position grounds. Friday. May 14.
The succees of the orchestra in every
way exceeded the highest expectations of
those who were responsible for Its going
to Pan Francisco. Ir. Muck was the hero
of the occasion and San Francisco papers
were unable to find adequate words to
express their delight Incidentally, al
though the sum paid to the Boston
Symphony orchestra, !0,0u0 for twelve
concerts, far exceeded any sum paid for
a similar series of concerts, the manage
ment announced on the day of the first
concert that the sale then had practically
covered the expenses and that tho con
certs would show an actual profit.
The orchestra leaves Fen Francisco,
Thursday. May 27, and it is due to
arrive in Boston the following Monday.
Then the members will scatter through
out the country for the summor. but
sixty odd men will be retained In Boston
until the Fourth of July, to play at the
famous "Pop" concerts in Symphony hall.

$5,450 Per Day Spent
To Fortify Goodyear Tires
The other day ttq cited our experts to certain well-known tires.
And we asked, What could Goodyear save by building tires like these?
$1,635,000 a Year
The answer was, "Based on current produc
tion, our saving would be $1,635,000 per year."
That means $5,450 per day.
But that saving would probabty cost our
users a million dollars monthly. And the coat
to Goodyear soon would be the rulership of
One Must Choose
Here's the choice that confrocU us day after
day: Shall we skimp Goodyear tires in ways
that can't be seen, and increase our profit
$1,635,000 a year? Or shall we pay that
price to give our users better tire than others?
Our answer is this:
Goodyear Fortified tires, tor many years,
have embodied five costly, exclusive features.
These are five great protections found in no
We spend on experts $100,000 yearly to
find new betterments to add.
In the past year alone we have added im
provements which coat us exceeding $500,000
Those &re the facts; believe them. We
never exaggerate, never misrepresent
... . i
Now note another side.
Despite this ceaseless improvement. Good
year prices arc constantly corning down. Our
last big reduction on February 1st -made
three in two years, totaling 45 per cent.
Yet not a feature is missing, not an item is
skimped. And this year we are spending a
half million dollars on newly adopted better
ments. That's one result of our mammoth output,
our new equipment and our modern methods.
When we spend such sums to build
tires better than rivals, don't you think
it worth while to get Goodyear?
Most men do. Goodyear tires are selling
