PROSPERITY VS. HIGH PRICES.
"No such thing exists in America as prosperity
for just one class unless itexists for all." So said a
noted statcsmun last fall and millions of 'Americans
behoved him but wediffor from him.
Our present so-called prosperity is a prosperity of
the CLASSES. It is most emphatically NOT a pros-
perity of the MASSES.
The munitions manufacturer is prosperous be-
came Eui'opa is clamoring for hi prodacts.
Tho automobile maker prospers because the craze
for the buzz wagon is on the upward slant.
Tho farmer prospers because Europe demands his
Certain other special industries prosper because-a
war crazed Europe need their wares with which to
prolong the struggle.
'And there the HEAL prosperity ends. Tho mil-
lions of salaried-men and women and tho more modest
wago earners are immeasurably worse off than they
were llvo years ago. Thousand-) of printers and
publishers arc facing actual ruin. The small mcrcHint
has diftlculty in making both ends myet. Thousands
of professional men are wondering how they can pay
High prices are the result of this half prosperity
but ALL paoplc have them to pay. Thu Classes 'have
tho monoy with which to pay but tho MASSES are
wondering where it is coining fiotn.
Industry Is tho mother of good luck.

alono for a minute. A man entered
tho place and notwithstanding there
were plonty of empty tables the wait-

ed him opposite her.
"You may Imagine my surprise" she
said to a friend later. "The tearoom
began to fill up and among thejunch-
era wore many persons I knew. 'What
will thoy think?' I said to myself. 'Alt's
out of town and here I'm dining with
a strange man.'
"Ilut my troubles had only begun.

plied and seemingly to prove that he
was a gentleman he placed his card
on the table. I recognized his name
as that of one of my husband's friends
but I did not feel that I ought to Intro-
duce myself. Soon afterward aome of
my friends who had eaten their lunch
came over to my table and began talk-
ing. I aaw thom sizing up the man
but of course I could not Introduce
