Noise is Not Patriotism.
This year of all others is the time
for a safe and sane Fourth of July
celebration. Independence Day with
the nation at war should be a thorough
ly patriotic observance. The old-time
riot of noise, death, fire and destruc
tion, which was supposed to show pa
triotism, would be very much out of
place under. present conditions. The
country needs the powder, and it needs
to protect the life and limb which were
sacrificed in the former observance, and
the millions of property which regular
ly went up in smoke and flame.
The Sane Fourth movement has
made remarkable progress in the past
few years, and this year should see the
end of the old absurdity of celebrating
the nation's birthday with pistols and
crackers, with their inevitable accom
paniment of racing ambulances and
clanging fire engines. The deaths from
Fourth of July casualties, which were
466 in 1903, had been reduced by 1917
to 11. while the injuries, which were
3,983 in the first year, fell last year to
196. Formerly the firemen expected to
be kept on the jump all day on the
Fourth, but for several years, in
Chicago and other cities where fire
works have been prohibited, the num
ber of alarms has actually been below
the daily average.
With this record it should hardly
need the recommendations of the State
Council' of Defence: and the Fire Mar
shals to secure municipal orders and
individual co-operatibri against the use
of explosives on the' Fourth. The
Uliited States is likely to burn powder
eriough-this year-without wasting any
of it on Independence Day. Its list of
dead and w|uf$e in the cause Of lib
erty will '-be long enough without
adding to it in an antiquated and'ab
the Fourth of July.
Economy of Fuel.
^Scientific .authorities have long been
telling us that enormous quantities of
fuel are wasted in the production of
steam power..- One authority states,
that 35 per-cent of the combustion of
cqal could be saved by installing me
chanical stokers that feed the. coal
evenly 4o the fire.
The traditions _of American life are
contrary to much interference with the
individual. If a manufacturer was
burning 35 per cent more fuel than he
needs, we have looked at it that that
was his own affair exclusively. If he
was fool enough to throw away that
money, we have said that it was his
own business, and no one should inter
Bui now we see what fatal conse
quences may come from such wastes.
Last winter many of our factories i&d
to stop because of lack of coal. Enor
mous quantities of corn spoiled in store
houses, because the railroads were so
congested by lack of fuel that the corn
could not be transported to the mill.
The time has come when we must
stop these wastes. The man who burns
up cbaT needlessly because he has an
unsuitable boiler, must be informed
that lie is depleting the common stock,
wfiMf is contrary to public policy.
T^.yaste, of coal can be seen in all
manufacturing towns where grejit
clouds of half consumed fuel are pour
ed into the air in the form of heavy
smoke. It destroys paint and furnish
ings, and adds to the cost of living, so
that the wasteful coal user injures the
community in two ways. These are
matters in which the government and
the business community will have to
co-operate to secure more economical
use of our resources. Fuel economy
must be studied,* and necessary appli
ances provided so that our Jlinlted,

Some one tells the story of a negro
who had acquired $300 all at once from
sale of farm products., He %ever be

and hied himself to the nearest town.
All his life he had wanted a phono

Then learning that he could make a
saving in the price by buying two, he
put up another $50, and loaded the two
instruments into his cart and went
The profits of the. war are most un
equally distributed. A great many
wealthy people are becoming inordin
ately rich Many people of moderate
means are wealthy now. Many men
that never before had a dollar ahead
are drawing their $30 to $50 a week.
And a great many others aren't getting
a cent more than they used to. They
have to meet the high prices by a re
duction in standard of living.
The people who unexpectedly find
themselves in possession of sums of
money to which they are not accustom
ed, should remember that the harvest
is likely to be short. We shall come
down to hard pan after the war. And
as the war goes on, the government will
get after profiteerings and reduce pro
duction to a' more essential basis.
The man who finds ^himself in posses
sion of *an unexpected roll of money
will do well to put it right where he
can get it. Let him not spend it the
way our negro did. It is the best
chance he ever had in his life to get a
reserve ahead and begin to acquire
Some property. Let him reflect that

BREAD WITH FISH MEAL
BEING MADE IN NORWAY
Christiania, NorwayIt has been
officially announced by the Royal Nor
wegian provisions department that re
cent experiments at Bergen to produce
bread containing 20 per cent of fish
having proved successful, a trial in the
same direction will now be made in
Christiania. It is the. intention of the
provision department to co-operate
with the state to buy the necessary ma-

"Minnesota editors have been the
most, active and most efficient recruit
ing agents in this state for the past
six months, and have been largely in
strumental in placing and keeping the
Minnesota recruiting district near the
head of the list of 64 recruiting
districts in the country", said Major
John D. Yost, recruiting officer for, .the
district, in addressing the state editors
assembled at GlenwOod Saturday, June
"The papers of this state", said the
Major, are running practically 200*
columns of publicity every week, which
is of inestimable value from a recruit
ing standpoint. Six months ago this
district was not considered a leader*
and its usual position in the list of
districts was about the middle of the
column. Today the Minnesota district
is running neck and neck with the
leaders, and the state is furnishing as
many voluntary recruits for the vari
ous branches of the United States
Army as any state in the union."
Major Yost's talk was of great inter
est to the assembled editors, and the
results of their collective efforts were a
great surprise to the individual editdis.
About 500 papers in the state, -he
averred, publish a weekly letter on re
cruiting and keep the needs of the na
tion constantly before the general
public. Recruiting publicity, is trans
lated and published weekly in at least
25 foreign language papers, including
Polish, German, Finnish, Norwegian,
Swedish, French and Austrian publica
tions. Trade and industrial journals
MABEL TALIAFERRO IN
papers have also been a
great aid, Major Yost stated, but the
real results in this district have come
through the hearty and continued co
operation of the daily and weekly
newspapers of the state.
In concluding his talk, the recruiting,
officer thanked the editors for what
they haves done, and asked for their
further co-operation in his work in this
district. He impressed on those pres
ent the great need of man power at the
present time, and the necessity for con
tinued efforts in recruiting to make up
the losses occurring daily in the ranks
of the United States Army.
FIRES ON THE FARMS

In this^cdmpaign to increase the
food supply ?of the country and^pt the
world, conservation is-quite as import-
an:"' as production,, The grain and meat
and other foodstuffs now here musfe'toe^
preserved from wasteful destruction
while additional supplies are being prxF
duced. Fires destroy, millions of bu
shels of grain and thousands of heads
of cattle each year, and it is the duty
of the patriotic citizen to reduce this
preventible and criminal waste by every
meanes in his power.
An important responsibility rests up
on the farmer in this matter The Cori
on the farmer in this *matter. The
Council of National Defence, working
through the State Councils and the
fire marshals, and with the invaluable
co-operation of the inspectors of the
stock and mutual fire insurance com
panies, is making an inspection of all
the grain elevators, flour mills pack
ing plants and food warehouses of the
country, with a view to reducing the
hazzards of fire. In this the co-oper
ation of the owners is expected, and is
being given, as a patriotic duty in "thisf
time of national crisis. But this force
of inspectors cannot go out of the, cities
and towns, and yet there is an enor
mous amount of foodstuffs on the farm
which it is equally important to pro
tect against the hazards of fire. This
work is up to the farmer himself, and
in doing it he is not only protecting his
own property and family, but is doing
his bit in the vitally important work
of conserving the food supplies of the
The great majority of the fires are
due to carelessness, and under exist
ing conditions carelessness is a crime.
The 'ordinary common-sense precau
tions are all that is necessary. Be
careful about smoking, matches and
lights, remember the hazards of gaso
line, keep a barrel of water or a box
of sand ready for emergencies, have
your barns properly rodded against
lightning, clean up the rubbish in
which a fire is likely to start, and you
will be doing your share as a patriotic
citizen in a time of national heed.

fritter away and how much do you

Sky blue and-truerblue, with stars that

To every star and stripe
The drums beat as hearts beat
And fifers shrilly pipe!

A blessing in the sky
Your hope and my hope
It never hid a lie!
Home land and far land and half the

Secure within-its folds!
