LETS HAVE THE FAIR
The decision of the Boone County
Fair directors to give up the idea of
having a fair this year is to be re
gretted. Boone County needs a fair,
especially when its farmers are in
terested in producing their maximum
to help in the food drive.
Aside from the social significance
of county fairs, their economic value
is underestimated. A fair affords op
portunity for farmers to come togeth
er and learn what their neighbors
are doing. The plan of offering prizes
for farm products and live stock is
an incentive to do better things in
The county fair helps to keep boys
and girls on the farm. It raises the
dignity of farm life, and arouses their
interest in better live stock and com
munity life. The fact is impressed
upon them that they are a vital factor
in the chain of food production.
The farmer's wife has an oppor
tunity to display her preserves and
jellies, while her daughter may place
her needlework in competition with
that of her city cousins. Besides the
value of better foodstuffs, the appeal
to the instinct of workmanship can
not be overestimated.
Getting the Most Out of Business."
That business and business methods
in the United States need standardiza
tion for efficiency is the belief of E.
St. Elmo Lewis, who writes on "Get
ting the Most Out of Business."
"Efficiency," the author says, "is a
program by which things may be ac
complished most effectively withj
greatest result." He is of the opinion
that there is too much waste in indus
try and that neither capital nor labor
gets its share of the profits.
Another fault with business, accord
ing to the writer, is too much accent
on doing and not enough on thinking.
Every business should have room for
both. He also stresses the necessity
of working -by schedule and the use
of some sort of system of bookkeep
ing .which will enable men to know
where they stand every day.
Business, he continues, exists for
service. The manager should strive
to get the customer's viewpoint. Bus
iness progress comes from the impor
tation of talent that has been devel
oped outside, or from the employment
of outside experts who bring to the
business management a scientifically
adjusted and tested experience.

A WAR FOR I1E3I0CKACV
In the midst of the tremendous war
preparations of the United States for
its "struggle for democracy" and
against Prussian autocracy in partic
ular, comes the news that Great Brit
ain, through its premier, David Lloyd
George, has granted amnesty to all
political prisoners of Ireland.
The struggle of the Irish for home
rule and the principles of democracy
in their determination to retain their
national unity has been going on for
centuries. But the entrance of the
United States into the world struggle,
largely brought about by the inhuman
crushing of Belgium, Serbia and oth
er small nations, finds this small na
tion still in the throes of rebellion
against the efforts of England to cast
it Into the melting pot of Great Brit
ain. When the United States decided to
lend its aid in making" the rights of
small nations sacred in the future.
it was predicted that one of the first
moves this country would make would
be to request that Great Britain settle
its difficulties with Ireland. That the
democratic ideals of this country have
had some effect towards this end may
be inferred from the granting of am
nesty to Irish political prisoners only
two months after our entrance into

General Staff Working on Plan to
Properly Feed Bookies.
By United Press
WASHINGTON, July 5. The Na
tional army will be well fed if prepa
ration counts for aught. The general
staff is working on a plan to feed more
than a half million rookies who will
assemble in the sixteen cantonments
for training next fall. The variety of
the menu, necessarily limited to the
regular army ration, will be prepared
and served properly.
In recent wars the "grub" of the
valiant volunteer has been the object
of scandal. It was "embalmed beef"
in the Spanish War. On the border
last year the National Guard howled
lustily against the army mess. The
answer was incompetent cooks.
To guard against repetition of such
complaints, the General Staff has com
pleted plans to train a gigantic army
of cooks before the cantonments open.
Within "a few weeks thousands of
young men will be mobilized and in
structed in the art of military culinary.
The instruction will include how to
feed a company of 150 men three times
a day on schedule time, kitchen sani
tation of utmost Importance to the
health of 'the men and how to lenj
a touch of variety to the limited pos.
slbiiities of the army ration.
