WAR WRITING DULL.
The Balkan war correspondents are

deadlocked state legislature probably
would be more exciting.
War reporting is different from
what it was during the Russo-Japanese
war. Now the warring countries

sued by censors. These censors see
to it that the fortunes of their own
countries are boosted, but do not fur

'EW YORK AND COLUMBIA.
Columbia resembles the great New
York in several ways. It has a "great
white way" and a Broadway, too.
The lights of Broadway (Columbia)
gleam at night like the sun orb of
day. They cast a mellow glow over
this amply wide street. They give a
metropolitan finish to the small city
that is pleasing. They give a touch
of brightness to the center of the city
even though parts may be dipped In
stygian darkness. They furnish a lum
inant point to flare the way for the in
coming farmer as he trundles along
in the blackness of the country high
way. They provide plenteous bright
ness for the night shopper. Those
lights are a Columbia asset.

ference gymnasts and wrestlers will
soon hold their annual meet at Madi

decided yet Owing to the increas
ing interest in gymnastics a larger
writers want. The prestige of the war number of entries is exnecteri thiH
for influencing and developing that
literature. It is this, rather than his
warm-hearted personality or his in
spiring patriotism, which Doctor
Bradsher has made his subject Hav
ing noted Carey's encouragement to
struggling and obscure writers, he
adds that while genius can generally
care for itself, the talent of the coun
try needed such a friend as Matthew
Carey proved himself. "When the his
tory of literary culture In America is
written, no small praise must be giv
en to the man who caused books and
all their attendant blessings to pene
trate even beyond the Mississippi,

HOME FIRE EXTINGUISHERS.
Every house should have in it at
least one chemical fire extinguisher on
each floor. These little inexpensive
apparatuses would save many fires
and thousands of dollars. They are-i
very effective and do the work where
water often fails. Many automobiles
are now equipped with them.
Fires are often discovered im
mediately after they start but on ac
count of the lack of available meth
ods of extinguishing them, they go on
with their destruction. If a small"
chemical extinguisher is at hand it
would usually be possible to put the

for the new stamps which advertise
the Panama-Pacific Exposition to be
held in San Francisco in 1915. Any
postofflce of the first, second or third
class may have the stamps on appli

here, says that this postofflce is only
provided with one case for the com

cel post stamps have arrived that the
one case is used for the two stamps.
However, up to the present time there

placed in the office later.

WILL IT FIGHT ITSELFI
The government is making a great
fight against monoply. At the same
time Its timber policy is the worst
type of monoply. Will it be forced to
fight itself? Probably not. It would
be justified In fighting itself unless
changes in its methods came within
the next few years.
The government owns one-fifth of
all the standing timber in the coun
try, many billion feet of which is ripe
for the ax and even deteriorating from
over-ripeness. When the government
offers its timber for sale It makes a
close estimate of the cost of manu
facturing it into boards and of the
price of the product. It then fixes
a minimum selling price that will give-
the purchaser of the raw timber a fair
price for cutting and sawing.
It is easy to see that the government
timber can never be sold lower than
the monopolized timber in private
hands. The government's pricS is
fixed by the market price and the
market price in turn is fixed by
private owners of timber. Xo matter
what the private owners boosted their
price to, the government would do
the same. This policy does not allow
the timber to be cut when it Is ripe.
It explains why the government is
selling only one-tenth the timber it
should sell to keep the forests in
This is but another Illustration ot
the American way of doing things.
We make elaborate laws for the doing
away of certain things and then do,
apparently, a great many things to

Matthew Carey, who was born in Ire
land in 17C0, and who came to Amer
ica in 17S4, after the vigor of his pen
in defense of the Irish cause had land
ed him in prison, had a notable career
at Philadelphia, where he died in
1S39. He was distinguished as a pat
riot of large public spirit who was ac
tively interested in an astonishing
number of good causes, and as an
author whose account of the yellow
fever in Philadelphia in 1793 was re
printed in various lauguages, and

greatest publishing and distributing
firm In America. While his formal
connection with the house ended in
the latter years, Dr. Bradsher holds
that there is no doubt that through
his sons he was a force in its conduct
until a much later period. There is
scarcely need for argument that one
who thus stood between the author
and the reader in the early days of
our national history, when the first
beginnings were made of a distinctive
literature, had a peculiar opportunity
