Excerpt from Looking Beyond: A Sequel to "Looking Backward," by Edward Bellamy, and an Answer to "Looking Further Forward," by Richard Michaelis This, in his book, Looking Backward, Mr. Bel lamy very ably has done. Of course, the author of that book never made pretension of being a prophet or a dictator, decreeing laws for future generations; his idea evidently was to show in a series of pic tures how, by general and scientific co-operation, an equitable system could be instituted, the thousand fold misery of human beings tainting the present system be abolished, and the welfare of all indi viduals of the human species be accomplished. If this was his object, he certainly was successful, and the immense circulation of Looking Backward shows that he struck a chord in the hearts of Ameri can and English speaking people.
