This is i good country. It will continue to be a good country as long as
its People are good citizens. Let's have no other kind.

Short skirts for women have been vindicated. Hurrah. Cut off another
foot or two! Statistics gathered in Chicago show that the skirt is responsible
for reducing the number of accidents to women in boarding and alighting
fromr- street cars and trains.
"Before the advent of the short skirt innumerable falls were caused by
won-en stepl)ing on their own skirts. Now the short skirts Pre cutting dowiv
the number of accidents," says the statisticion.
Hurrah again! O1f with still a little more!
We men will Wok the other way--when our wives are around.
FIGHTERS AND FIGHTERS
Fistic fanls are specilating at a lively rate on the result of the coming
light between Goorges Carpentier, the French war hero, and Jack Dempsey,
the American 'fighter" who failed to fight for his country.
The money is on Dempsey, but popular sympathy and favor is unques
tion:bly with the Frenchman. National pride should prompt a person to
root for his countryman, provided that countryman is one worthy of the name.
But-Carpentier quit fighting in the ring in order to fight the enemies of
his country. He is a man, regardless of what some may think of his calling.
Fhe public is becoming nauseated with the case of the New York banker
wvho brought suit. for divorce against his wife, claiming that another man is
the father of her baby boy. The wife fought for her good name and the
legitimacy of her child, and she fought hard and with startling results. She
charged, and claims to be able to prove, that the banker, while attacking her
purity, was even deeper in the mire-was in fact maintaining another woman
as his wife under an assumed name. There, too, a child is to be found.
Before his attempt to besmirch his wife in order to secure his freedom
he was a man of commanding position in the financial world. Now he is no
longer at, the head of his bank, is looked upon with suspicion by the public,
and is said to be contem)lating a residence abroad. He can be spared-he
will not be missed-the air may even be purer when he is gone. The Ameri
can people do 1-t look with favor upon guilty men who throw stones.

THINK THIS OVER
Press dispatches have been paving the way for another huge French loan
to be placed in the United States. This time, if the dispatches are correct,
we will be asked to lend a cool bundred million dollars to our friends across
the water, in addition to the billions they already owes us. , The cables also
tell another story-a very interesting one. Paris is going fashion mad. The
whirl of gayety is the liveliest that has been seen .in many years. Stupendous
sums of money are spent on jewels, and dress, and the races, and the opera,
and the continual round of expensive receptions and entertainments.
They have plenty of money with which to satisfy theit vanity or their
(lrving for excitement, but aiparently they have none for the rehabilitation
of France. We are not fond of criticising our neighbors, for we wish all na
tions and all peoples well. But we feel that the time has arrved ;for a just
criticism--a criticism that the French have brought upon themselves by their
social prodigality when a season of frugality is imperative.
If the French government. wants another hundred million dollars it should
apply to its own people who are throwing their money away on frivolity. The
French exhibited a sublime patriotism during the war. Even a small portioni
of the same pat riotic spirit in time of peaceful reconstruction will supply the
Freinch goverimi ent with all of the money it requires.
If the French leople who are so prodigal in their spiending have not suf
ficient faith in their government to advaice the funds it requires, then that
fact itself is suflicient reason for Amnerica to say ''NO.''
