] II I "" The ~read~inner,r. "" The attempt at this late day to find in an Illinois woman the doubtful hon- or of the authorship of "The Bread- winners" deserves a place among the curiosities of literature. We can readily understand that as events have shaped themselves since 1883 the real author would gladly es- cape attention behind another name, for when he wrote the book it is not likely that he foresaw a public or poli- tical career for himself. Fortunately it is too late for any misapprehension written in this country. It had but one purpose says the New York Journal, that was to show the cssentlal vileness of every person not a millionaire and the divine sublimity of the men that make great sums money. According to the teachings this book the man that labors with his hands is an ignoble creature and the man that has no occupation but to pursue the refined and elevating amusements of society is the only re- spectable person in the commdnity. Open Air 2Danfr.v. People with plenty of ground space, yet constricted houses, may profitably take a leaf from the book of south country household economy.

In hot weather floor and shelves are washed every morning, and scoured 'twice a week. Such a fixture should ~not cost over three or four dollars, even if one hires it built, and it is cer- tainly among the handiest things one can have about the house or yard. Cheap J~eel .for F'orei#ner.. Mr. Charles M. Schwab, president of the United States Steel company, ad- mits that the American steel manu- facturers sell their products to for- eigners at a lower price than they do to their own countrymen. He admits and he defends the practice. His rea- ,soning is that to produce goods at the minimum cost plants must be run to their full capacity;, that when the pro- ,ductivit*y of plants run in this fashion exceeds the demands of the country surplus stocks pile up which must be ,disposed of abroad if disposed of at all, and that it is for the interest of the manufacturers, their employes and the ,country generally that these surpluses "should be got rid of abroad, even if they are sold at a price much below that asked of home consumers, as oth- erwise mills will have to be closed or run on half time and workmen thrown
