a. Man the Machine. b. Personal Merit
[The Old Man and the Young Man had been conversing. The Old Man had asserted that the human being is merely a machine, and nothing more. The Young Man objected, and asked him to go into particulars and furnish his reasons for his position.]
Old Man. What are the materials of which a steam-engine is made?
Young Man. Iron, steel, brass, white-metal, and so on.
O.M. Where are these found?
Y.M. In the rocks.
O.M. In a pure state?
Y.M. No--in ores.
O.M. Are the metals suddenly deposited in the ores?
Y.M. No--it is the patient work of countless ages.
O.M. You could make the engine out of the rocks themselves?
Y.M. Yes, a brittle one and not valuable.
O.M. You would not require much, of such an engine as that?
Y.M. No--substantially nothing.
O.M. To make a fine and capable engine, how would you proceed?
Y.M. Drive tunnels and shafts into the hills; blast out the iron ore; crush it, smelt it, reduce it to pig-iron; put some of it through the Bessemer process and make steel of it. Mine and treat and combine several metals of which brass is made.

THE MAN IN THE MILL The Sawyer pushes buttons, pulling levers with his hand And there comes from it a music you would not understand. Some may call it laboring, others call it noise, But, to him it is precision and a thing that he enjoys. Remember that a lumber mill is not a hill of ants. The men have hearts and souls there. They are not wood or plants. Without them even churches would never have been built, Call upon the misty heavens, Say whatever prayer thou wilt!! FROM JAMES MICHAEL CHAPESKIE
