Discusses the consequences of forgetting that words only point to things and are not the things themselves; explains that attention to words alone may lead to unrealistic behavior, because language makes it easy to distort what is being described. Points out that it is easier to exaggerate in speaking than to be precise, and that this tendency to exaggerate is based partly on failure to limit the description or judgment of a person or thing to a particular time and context.

Rare film footage shot under the direction of the legendary Lumier̀e Brothers during a round-the-world trip in the 1890's records such spectacular events as the coronation of Csar Nicholas II, President McKinley preparing to invade Cuba, and the Paris exposition. Equally remarkable is the record of the abject poverty of the common man in the "Golden Nineties."
