Then she walked over to the table, picked up the receipt, deliberately crushed it into a hard little ball, and opening the door. threw the hall with all her might at the swiftlv disappearing figure.

"'I he lady o! the house, 1 presume? I am the traveling agent for Pratt's famous new edition of the Child’s Encyclopedia and Books of Knowledge. I will just step in, and we’ll glance over the hooks together before I take your order."
As good as her word, the formidable speaker of these words opened the screen door, walked briskly in. and seating herself in the nearest chair, proceeded to Open her sample case.
"The encyclopedia, as you see, will help your children greatly in their school work, and this book of Questions of Childhood Answered contains answers to those startling and incessant questions that children ask daily. Here, for example, is a perfectly satisfactory answer to the irrelevant question How far can a cow jump?
and here is one on hat does Cod eat?' N on can----’’

"Of course." interposed the other, “you have had no trouble as yet with the questions of your children, hut you know that as their minds develop they must be fed the knowledge they demand, and this set of books was especially compiled to meet that demand. This is a chance no mother can afford to lose. It is an absolute necessity for the busy parent, and certainly a great bargain for

"There are only two-------", stammered Mrs. John Deering,

“Only two. but two children ask as many questions in a day as ten, and they will find such company with these hooks. I hev will have so many interests in common, and though it will be mere

an evil, for it was? a great step upward in the development of government. a step from the disorder of too many small states to larger well organized nations, and as natural as the uniting of families into tribes and tribes into small states. Hut it is the nationalism that had evolved at the beginning of the twentieth century that is to be condemned,—the "nationalitis" of which Germany has had the most acute attack. hen this selfish nationalism gives wa to tlu next stage in the development of government—internationalism, that is. when each man will think of himself as primarily a citizen of the world, and secondarily as a citizen of Italy or of England or «if Germany, one great step will be made in the direction of a guarantee for tlu future peace of Europe.
'Khe main hope for a better Europe, however, lies in the increase of democratic control over foreign affairs and the abolishment of the secret diplomacy of tlu- past. Hut it depends on what kind of democracy is to do the controlling. History, both past and present, furnishes precedents for the statement that a democracy is not made overnight. A true democracy is. as yet. an ideal, and the nearer tlu world approaches this ideal, the le s war It will have.
Hut in the meantime, while the ideal of democracy is being approached, the future place of Europe and of the world will be maintained if two of tlu vital principles of nglo-Saxon civilization are upheld—that "there must be everywhere a wider extension «»f liberty to those diversities in thought and action which spring from race and tradition and there must accompany it a general strengthening of the mutual regard for public law and equit among nations." In brief the Teuton ideal of "might gives right" must be stamped out. and the small states must he insured freedom.
The futility in the long run of the dominion-by-might idea is shown in the history of all the small states under the grasp of Germany and Austria-1 lungary. 'The history of lsacc-l.orraine, of Schleswig-Holstein, and of South-eastern Europe is one long tale of writhing discontent. It is impossible that such a state of affairs can have brought any re.nl pleasure to either Germany or ustria-l lungary. Noth may profitably look to the despised England for a lesson in the successful management of dependencies.
But that there may be fewer dependencies of the Great Powers is another ideal which, if realized, would produce a better Europe. The importance of the small state and the heroism of Belgium can never he forgotten. Tt is safe to sav that a world of Serbias and Belgimus would be a much better place in which to live than a world of Germanvs or even of England .
The last and most important evil to be blotted out is autocracy, the effect of which is now so well recognized that it is not necessary
