There are 18;000 children listed in
the organization known as the Fath
erless Children of" France. The Rev.
Dr. Samuel N. %Watson, rector of the
Holy Trinity American Episcopal
Cathedral, Paris, who is vice president
of the organization, recently wrote to
the Living Church, an Episcopal
weekly published in Milwaukee, Wis.,
telling of some things accomplished
by this society. Thousands of dollars
have been cqntributed to this work
through the Living Church.
"As vice president of the Fatherless
Children of France, I am glad and
proud to tell you that we have now
about 18,000 children on our pension
lists to whom we give fifteen francs a
month," wrote Dr. Watson, and add
ed: "And we heartily thank the Liv
ing Church for its splendid coopera
tion And for its constant advocacy of
"May I say to your readers that
more and more we need money to ex
press to France what is really our
devotion to her splendid idealism?
Let no one think that because there
are big organizations on the ground
here that therefore the need is over.
It-is far otherwise.
Doing Vast Service.
"The bigger the organization the
less is its possibility of helping gent
ly the little things, the modest suf
ferers. It is not that I have anything
but admiration for the splendid way
in which the big services of relief
do big things. There must be big
organizations to handle vast problems.
But I want to impress on our gen
erous supporters that we do a vast
service of mercy that no one else is
in touch with or can do.
"It is not the fault of the big or
ganizations that they do not and can
not reach much of the deepest suf
fering; it is simply a fact of the es
sential conditions. When the elephant
wanted to pet the fly it was not the
elephant's fault that the fly was.hurt.
It was the essential fact that the ele
phant's foot was too big to do the
kind of caressing gently."

a less period than two years, the

Washington, Aug. 26.-A drive to

Only the very eflicient baker can
produce a pound loaf of bread for five

Wheat records of the past show that

The association declared that in

It was urged that the price to be

factors which led to the recent rise
in wheat to points about $2.
They pointed out that if peace were
declared, or with the reserves in Aus

there would be enough wheat to sup

Two-Thirds of Great Sum Repre
sented by Advances Made
to Allies. '
'TOTAL SUM $2,387,490,086
The United States Has Paid Out
for Its Own Needs
Washington, Aug. 24.-War exj
penditures of the United States, in
cluding Allied loans, have mounted
during August to more than $24,000,
000 every twenty-four hours. The fig
ures, minus $100,000,000 just loaned
to Russia, are contained in today's
Two-thirds of the great sum is rep
resented by advances to the Allies.
The United States has been spending
daily during August for its own needs
an average of $8,088,652. The Allies
have been receiving and average daily
allowance of $16,375,000, incliding
cash already paid and the new Rus
sian credit, which will be paid short
ly. The total daily expenditures dur
ing August thus reaches $24,463,652.
Total Sums to Date.
Since war was declared, 140 days
ago, the treasury has paid out a total
of $2,387,490,086, of which $1,630,500,
000 has been advanced the Entente
governments. Th'e average daily pay
ment to the Allies during the 140-day
period has been $11,650,000, the re
maining $5,403,500 representing the
cost of carrying on the government
and war expenditures for the Ameri
can army and navy.
The total of $1,530,500,000 advanced
the Allies thus far is less by $425,
900,000 than the total authorized cred
its which, with today's Russian loan,
aggregate $2,066,400,000, or more than
the entire proceeds of the first issue
of the Liberty loan. The remaining
$425,900,000 is subject to the Entente
government's cheeks upon the Ameri
can treasury, under certain conditions
agreed upon at the time the credits
The cost of raising and maintaining
the American army and of increasing
the naval forces and maintaing the
naval establishment has risen from
the comparatively small amount ex
pended at the time war was declared
to the tremendous daily average, and
is not yet fairly under way. Ex
penses will soon reach greatly higher
levels. A conservative estimate of the
treasury daily expenditure by the be
ginning of the new year places the
total at from $35,000,000 to $40,000,
The Allies, too, are needing and re
ceiving more money than was paid
them (luring the first month or so of
war. During the first eighty-five days
of war ending June 30 with the fiscal

Allies $885,000,000. This was an av
