When the glad time comes for a full establishment of the higher social order, the workmen will turn for financial leaders to such men as William H. Lever and brother, of Birkenhead; the Cadburys, of Bournville, and the Krupps, of Germany. In the United States they will turn to such leaders as we find at the Briercliff Farms of Westchester, the Westinghouse Company at Wilmerding, the Heintz Company of Pittsburg, at Hopedale, Mass., and Ivorydale, Ohio; to Gov. Pingree, of Michigan; Mayor Jones, of Toledo, and others who have shown that large hearts can beat beneath sound financial heads and that the selfish system of ownership, so old in history, has not burned out all humane impulses from those who are capable of leading men in the practical works of life. We shall not lack for unselfish financiers.

On a following page we have summarized the imperative demands of the present time under the head of "The Twelve Foundations."

On the next page we have briefly given the transition forms by which to bring about the new social order. These simpler bands will have twelve officers snstead of thirty-six. They will, however, have the iame twelve departments, as s hewn in the tables. This simplifies the work of transition.


are schools of culture for the new social order. Each individual band is graded in three parts.

First, and lowest i s the Pearl Band for

children u p t o

the twelfth year. Next is the Culture Band for youths from twelve to twenty-one. Then the Harmonic Band for the adults.

The Pearl Band is led by the sanatist and the Culture Band by

the conductor. These two bands form the Sunday School, holding an hour's session each Sunday. The Culture Bands hold two sessions a week, Sunday and Thursday evenings.

As fraternal bands these will take the place of all existing fraternal or secret orders, by having a richer and more interesting symbolism; by being valuable schools of culture and study, and by a better assurance against want or lack of employment, and for care in case of sickness.

These bands will form the nucleus of the new social organism, each band having only to add the remaining officers to its list in order to be ready for the full work of practical life.
