Thtough tiis Courtesy We Ate Enabled to CJive & Chapter in Advance of Its Publication. Tlite UPPER DBS MoiNEs lias the pleasure of presenting to Its readers a few advance pages from Henry burnnt's forthcoming book<" which will be issued in Chicago about Feb. 20, and will be on sale at all the book stands after that date. It will contain about 80 chapters, each dealing with some phase of out' social life, and each suggesting the reforms which Mr. Durant thinks would tend to make life better worth the lly- ing. All will not agree With his suggestions, but those who pertise his pages will see that he has been an observer of men and events and that the conclusions he has arrived at represent many years of study and thought. One of the chapters'is entitled "Our Civilization." He gives what he assumes would he the impressions of intelligent beings from, another planet after a visit with us: Suppose a delegation of educated and cultured people from another world should visit us in order t,o get full information as regards our intellectual standing in all that pertains to a high order of civilization, and at their departure they should tell us their opinion of our position in the universe as regards practical common sense. It would be something like this: " When standing on the platform of one of your depots we are impressed with the stately dignity of an incoming train, and there is something about it that almost conveys the idea that it possesses a high order of intelligence. It is a very impressive sight. It borders on the sublime. Your machinery all does its work with a marvelous accuracy and apparent intelligence. When we compare it with the behaviour of the masses of your people we are surprised at the amount of folly and useless behavior we see. How could you ever acquire such habits and why do you not eradicate them.. You have the mental capacity to acquire as high an order of intelligence as any world we have visited but how you have perverted it. What can your ideas of dignity be. Do you consider what you call joking, which benefits none but wrongs and annoys most all, an attribute of intelligence when it is indulged in to such an extent as it is with you? How have you ever acquired and allowed such a habit as drinking to exist among you to the extent it does? Drunkenness is never any benefit but always an injury to the individual as well as to his home and the nation! A person after indulging in a drunken time is mentally, morally and financially injured and has not one redeeming thing to show for it, nothing'but shame, regret arid remorse. Collectively you must acknowledge it is a national disgrace, and also that intelligent laws could be enacted that would instantly stamp it out. "Your political system is such that you do not secure the best talent of youn nation to either govern you or make your laws. Your educational system does not (as it should) to any extent attempt to eradicate violent temper, jealousy and revenge., You do not appear to or at least practice a system to develop a kind, generous, sympathetic disposition and all the finer attributes of your nature. The habit of swearing is very common among you. Did it ever accomplish any good? Did it ever mend-any thing or have the least effect except that of injury? What does lying accomplish for you? Is it not a positive injury to you all? If you ask a question it is correct information you want, not something that may mislead or injure you. In place of educating your children at home you trust them to strangers and deprive yourself of what should be one of the highest ambitions of parents, namely, to enjoy the society and early education of their children and have them excell in culture and intelligence. After 20 years of age if you have given your children proper pare and attention they should then be sent to the best institution of learning that your means will afford. When you trust your children's education to strangers at the nge when .they are susceptible to any or all bad influences how can you expect them to ever be fit to appreciate or utilize a fine education, At home you should educate your children so that at the age of five or six they can talk intelligently about many of their surround 1 ings and the elements of all sciences, "A correct system of government places all on a par with each other, that is your rulers are just as good as , you are if they behave themselves, no longer, Your behavior towards each other has a tendency to humiliate those who do not have wealth or position, An inherited position is no credit to any one, an acquired position is, To inherit position is an advantage if it is improved but what does.juhevited position do for the world If sciuand.ered in idleness. "Your discoveries anddevelopmentof the laws of the universe in your con* struction of machinery, tp which you have almost imparted intelligence, also your magnificent bridges and fine structures challenge our admiration. But to quite an extent you have overlooked the human family which is susceptible of an improvement in intellect, culture and physical condition that hardly has a limit, Jn' paying tribute to true, worth you, have almost entirely over* looked taraew and mechanics, p<j ypu, opt realise the, }mpQctano§ of their pneittpn, They arg the tvwe noblemen sf any lap4 »n,d §bpul& be. we,U dpesmd and wlKtii but yftujj system hu *>--*»--.1.1— ft tendency to i%pidl$ iAcflBfif® -psvefty nftd its attendant cfiftieB? Y6tf Rave a beautiful and glofious, cttufilfy ahd should endeavor td develops it mor6 in" tellectually. Al! your olhef crimes pale before the one of you!- tFeaimenlef wotaen. With all your intelligence you have no lawn or social customs that puhish the one who coftmits the cfjme. You let the innocefit vldtim fedelve the punishment. Your happiness and wel 1 fare both at home and as a nation de* pend on the purity of women, yet you have little or no protection for them. You live a dual life towards them. In company you attempt to show them every respect, allow ho ill or rude be* haviour before them and any great rudeness Would be punished at once, when in company of men only your whole nature changes. Usually then the most popular one among you is he Who can slander atad abuse them* the most. You appear to lose all respect for them and certainly for yourselves, but if a stranger should say anything against one of your female relativesyou might kill him on the spot. Now do you not realize that all that you say against women slanders your own moth" ers, sisters and wives, also your lovely little girls. How can you look them in the face after telling and listening to the vile language you have against them. Your treatment of women shows your defective early education andyour unjust laws to the fullest extent. It should bo the ambition of all men to guard and protect women. They should look on them as lovely, angelic beings to be loved add protected and not ruined and degraded. You have nothing to fear from your women, as their high order of humanity and all that pertains to a kind generous sympathetic and loving nature as well as their keen appreciation or sense of right and wrong is all owing to the fact that their organization places them in closer communion with our unseen surroundings and the great hereafter. But if such a thing could be as for them to change and act like men it would bo fatal to home, society and the nation." Money. . I am loaning money on farmlands at six per cent, interest.
