.? WHO PEODUCES WEALTH?
;. , The people of Belgium are often said not to be,
V solf-supporting, since they Uo not produce from
' t their own acres more than a fraction of the food
they consume. Yet up to the time when the Ger
mans invaded the kingdom they lived in much com
fort', consuming as much fopd as most people.
As a matter of fact, they wore just as truly self
supporting as are the farmers of America. They
wero engaged in taking coal and iron and other;
minerals from the earth, and producing from them
and from (he products of the farms and fordsts ar
ticles just as essential to civilized life as food.
They are now reduced to poverty merely because
they are not allowed to work and dispose of the
fruits of their labors.
"We are sending them food in (lie name of charity
instead of in the way vi trade, because the Belgians,
instead of being productively employed making
things we need, are under the blight prophesied
against another people by Isaiah when he said :
"For it shall be that as wandering birds, as a scat
tering nest, so shall the daughters of Moab be at
the fords of Anion."
In this scattered nest, before the German tempest
struck it, work went on in which we as Americans
were being served in a thousand productive ways.
The tempest struck, and the Belgians ceased to
jvork for us and with us.
This shows the intimate way in which all of us
are interested in the prosperity of each of us. This
is a war, not of the nations actually engaged in it,
but against every producer in the world. Farm

' PROFESSOR TAFT.
Those who arc talking jjf Taft for 191G might as
- well save their efforts. lie is Prof. Taft now. lie
says he likes his present business, that of teaching
and.lecturing. And who shall say that he is not
' exerting any influence that is worth any man's ef
forts? He has been so wholly sane, so just and tol
erant and broad-minded in all his attitudes, even
toward his own-defeat, or rather slaughter, at the
hands of politicians, that he has won back to him
self the confidence and even love of all the people,
lie is radiating national geniality and common
sense. He is the one highest expression of what is
best in a great American manhood. When the poli
ticians began to quarrel ho seemed almost helpless,
for vicious strife and contention is not to his na
ture, but now he stands serene, and high and clear
and conspicuous in the American limelight, and
there is none to say that he does not stand the
beating of the light. lie is a great American citi
zen, an asset in citizenship, scholarship and lucid
thinking and speaking free from .all rancorousness.
Being such, it is a safe guess that they would not

PATTERSON AS A DOUBLE FACER.
When Malcolm It. Patterson was governor of
Tennessee he vetoed a prohibition bill that was
passed by the Legislature. In so doing he wrote a
message which the "wots" have been usin.g ever
since as a campaign document. Now Mr. Patter
son is in the employ of the Anti-Saloon Leaguo of
America, and is making speeches in favor of na
tional prohibition. He once said that prohibition
was fundamentally wrori. Now he declares that
prohibition is all right and that Patterson was all
wrong when he wrote that message. But the
"wets" are not letting him forget it. Recently ho
has made a number of speeches in Kentucky and in
almost every instance somebod' has drawn his nti
prohibition message on him Frankfort Stato
It now costs' 50 conts raoro to got
it did last week. Why? Because tho now war
revenue lncasuro provides for a 50-ceit'tax on ca,oh
marriage license issued by tho Coutity Cleric and
tho license is no good unless it is in there. People
will get married and tho framers f tho act took
that into consideration when they passed the bill ;
they know it would bring revenue. (
There are so many things that ij-cquiro tho war

body loves a fat man," and we all know there arc
really no old maids.
Stamps for this, stamps for tjiat, stamps for
everything; "but it was necessary. Tho law will
raise an enormous amount of revenue for the gov
ernment to supplant that formerily supplied by. the
import duties. There is ono consolation, the act
will not likely be in force more than a year at the

SORRY TO HEAR THIS ABOUT CHAMP.
When Speaker Champ Clark was trying to ad
dress the Detroit Board of Cothmorce after he had
been invited by the secretary ito leave, the lights
were turned off in an effort to! suppress him. It is
rep6rted that the Speaker was wabbly, that his
gestures Were flabby and his tijngue lame and lispy.
Afterward the secretary apologized to what re-
f mained of the audience, and told them their money
would be refunded. Hero's' a chance for Mr.

of tho improvement of business

The manufacturers and tho mer

of this combined domestic and foreign

iu nearly every portion pf tho country
tho unemployed labor is being rapld

With every month that war lasts the
demand for our farm products, for the
outputs, of our nulls and shops and

with a tendency to hlghor prices.
