LINCOLN WAY BEST CROSS
COUNTRY ROUTE: WALDON
Tourists Should Follow It Closely to
Be on the Safe Side, Says Member
of National Automooile Chamber of
Detroit, Mich., Nov. 21. S. D. Wdl
don. who, with R. D. Cliapin, of this
city, constitutes the good roads commit
tee of the National Automobile Cham
ber of Commerce, and who is on.? of
the best known men in rlie automobile
industry, in answer to the hundreds of
questions which he has received with
reference to the beat route for trans
continental touring, issued a statement
here which sums up the experience ho
has gabied iu his years of touring. He
has crossed the country over every
practical route and more Man a doaen
Wald on said: "Tourists desiring
the shortest and best transcontinental
route, during the summer months,
should by all means follow the adopted
route of the Lincoln Highway.
"The Lincoln Highway is" not the
only route across the continent. There
are other routes, both north and south;
•ach of them has its talking points and
its ardent advocates. Every route will
at some season of the year present diffi
culties. Routes farther north than the
Lincoln (Highway do not dry up so early
in the spring and cannot be traveled so
late in the fall. Routes farther south
become excessively hot in mid-summer,
and in early spring and late fall are
affected by the freshets from further
north, as well as local storms.
''The transcontinental tourist mak
ing the trip for the first time may un
questionably think, at some point in
his journey, that any other road would
be better than the one he happened to
be on. On the Lincoln Highway, no
matter wha+ the emergency, he gihould
remember that the route, as selected,
has been ehoesn after driving every al
ternative route, ami, no matter what
temporary difficulties, he may encounter
—that the Lineoin Highway is the best.
"The transcontineatal tourist should
bdhere strictly to the route of tihe Lin
coln Highway and particularly if ho is
making the trip for the first time.
Transcontinental drivers who are thor
oughly seasoned may make as many
variations in their route as they desiro,
but all of the States through which the
Lincoln Highway (Kisses have done so
roirch in co-operating with the Lincoln
Highway Association in the further im
provement of whait was the best road
when selected that there should be no
excuse fo>/ deviation on the part of
the tourist looking to the shortest route
and desiring to comtoine in his trip flie
greatest freedom from trouble and the
maximum opportunity to enjoy the nov
cit yand beauty as she goes.''

in those two years. Kates of wages per
hour in 1913 were 0.7 per cent, higher

earnings of ompioyes in 1913 wero 2.2
per cent, lower than in 1912, 7.8 per
cent, higher than in 1911, and 8.1 per
ceut. higher than in 1910, Tho full
time hours of labor per week in 1913
were 0.2 per cent, lower than in 1912,
1.8 per cent, lower thaa in 1911, and
1.6 per ceut. lower than in 1910.
Rates of wages per hour in 1913 were
2.1 per cent, lower than in 1912, 9.8
per cent, higher than in 1911, and 9.3
per cent, higher than in 1910.
In the silk goods manufacturing in
dustry the average full-time weekly
earnings of employes in 1913 were 5.6
per cent, higher than in 1912, 8.8 per
cent, higher than in 1911, and 10.1 per
cent, higher than in 1910. The full-time
hours of labor per week were gradually
reduced each year from 1910 to 1913,
the hours per week in 1913 being 0.4
per ceut. lower than in 1912, 1.3 per

1 I 'SERMONS
BY THE SWEAT OF THE FACE.
Text, "In the sweat of thy face shalt
thou eat brend."—Oeu. 111, 18.
My friend Gray is ouu of the un
happicst fellows 1 know. Lie com
plains that fate has played on him
u contemptible trick iu that It bus
made him work for a living. "Work
and slave for board and clothes, and
not the boat of either. Blink off early
in the morning, drag lionie weary ut
night. Bnmn goes to town at 0 o'clock
lu his ear, fools around till noon talk
ing to his stenographer, goes to lunch,
leans hack In Ills chair till 3. motors
out to the ball game, after dinner plays
billards at his club till midnight.
Where's the Justice In all that? Yes. sir,
fate duals me a hand with no trumps
and few face cards. With Brown th*
cards are stacked and it's always his
deal." Poor Gray! I know him. He
isn't a bud fellow. In spite of his
card phraseology he never touches one.
He Is sticking pretty close to his job
and is really doing belter than he
thinks. He is raising his family and
has his little house nearly paid for. He
is eating homely wholesome bread, and
Brown seems to be having lots of cake.
There's Gray's trouble—he's hungry for
cake. So are most of us. But better
a diet of all bread und no cake than
•11 cake and no bread—there's a reason.
It's part of the wise plan of the Al
mighty Father for bis children.
Bwat the Idler!
Adam fell. The first step in the plan
of salvation was to put Adam to work.
The kingdom of enrth and the kingdom
of heaven are easier to a busy man
than to an idle ono. An boon as Adam
had to earn his bread by the sweat of
his brow the world commenced to a<l
vance. The fellow who earna his by
the sweat of his neighbor's mental or
physical brow Is a parasite. Time is
going to awat him. Only those whose
name* are on the world'a payrolls
•hall bear the voice of eternity say,
"Well done, thou good and fulthful
rervant." The Bible is the charter ot
the toiler. Adam was a gardener, Ja
cob a drover, Moses a shepherd, Elisha
a plowman. Gideon a miller, Saul a
hostler. Jesns a carpenter, Peter a fish
erman, Zacchaeus a tax collector, Si
mon a tanner, Paul a tentninker—space
falls me to tell of the noble band ot
men and women—tollers all. Work
makes men; Idleness mur* them. Man
cannot have fiber put into him except
by the strain of toil. It is discipline;
It is moral exercise; it 1h to the hu
man frame what the wind and storm
are to the pine on the mountain side- II
develops and toughens and strength
ens. Without work man would be a
tlabby excrescence. The sloth doesn t
live; he exlats. Work is man's affinity
to nature. It Is man's natural expres
sion of btrnself in some form of effect.
Man, the Toiler.
Man is (he coworker with God.
Whether It Ik plain dirt dicing. n "' l
pounding. floor •crabbing— bo called
bumble toll—or earth, air aud water
mastering, bridge, nnd tunnel planning,
art. music, literature and science, it
matters not. God fashioned the earth;
Are melted the rocks; frost split the
granite; the rain dissolved the soil;
earth, air, sun and moisture sprouted
the seed. Then maD took perfume
from the flower, put. commerce on the
sea, turned the sweetbrler into the
rose, the crab appje into the pippin,
developed the grasses into vegetables,
improved the bird of the air and the
beast of the field. He touched the
forests and the.v became beams of
houses iind masts of ships; the clay be
came a drinking cup and the dust a
cement, the marble n statue, the ore a
mighty monster of iron and steel. He
draws lightning from the skies, puts
bands of steel serosa a continent, whis
pers his voice across a sea. He pre
serves the song and the Bpeech in rec
ords for posterity. He reels off the
dims that will tell to eyes not bom the
movements of men and things that will
long since have been dust. All that
man owns he has dug out of the physi
cal world. Out from the molecules of
his brain and the tool chest of his
hand have come things worthy of th«
sons of the architect of the universe.
Much Bread, Little Caks.
The "curse" hack in Eden was s
blessing In disguise. Out of it has
come something that lifts man to his
highest. Angels could do no more. He
is "cursed" who cannot work. The
man without a country wasn't near so
pitiable as the man without work. I
wouldn't want to be sentenced to a
year without purposeful work, it
would spell Insanity, as it does In mis.
governed prisons. Well, then, what
makes ns dislike work? If It Is essen
tial to development, progress, disci
pline. health, contentment, prosperity
and happiness why do so many hate it
so heartily? Because. American-like,
we overdo It. It becomes a drudgery
and a worry. Too much work Is bad
rot quite as bad as no work, hut harm
ful. When it is so incessant and ex
hausting that it crowds out domestic
joy. outdoor sport, friendly intercourse,
intellectual refreshment and religious
meditation It is a bane instead of bless
ing. When we carry it into our sleep
It Is time to drop some of it. One ex
treme breeds another. Some day vi
will travel In the middle of the road.
Human society Is Imperfect, and m»
friend Gray has nothing but coarse
bread. I'm afraid Brown has all cake.
Society frequently compels each to eat
to satiety. Gray naturally hungers foi
cake. Brown Is sickening on the same.
I would rather be tbe former. Bettel
