Science Fiction in the News Articles
Related to material in The Mentanicals
by Francis Flagg

"The name of this story gives a clue to its topic. It really seems to suggest a name for a new party, and possibly with all the intellect now being lavished on the government it might be adopted for immediate use. It is certainly most suggestive in substifuthtg for the physical basis of mechanics, the spiritual basis of mind. The readers will find in it a new development of the most suggestive kind presented in a most amusing way."
