Monroe City, Missouri,
The citizens of the Ozark 1 region,
the great apple country, are plan
ning to put a "knotty" problem up
to the United States department of
Justice .when they will ask that tii
bunal to decide whether the afore
said citizens will be violating the
war-time prohibition law if they
should allow, nature to take its
course with a barrel of cider. Cider
making titrt will 8000 be here and
the Ozarks promise to produce a
good yield of apples, many of which
will be' reduced to cider. Cider
when first made is as soft as mush,
but, after it is permitted to remain
idle for a time, it gets bard as nails.
Now what the Ozark citizens want'
to know is whether or not they will
be held to have intoxicating liquor
if there is found in their possession
hard cider that ouce was soft - Ex
In an address before an iron and
steel convention in St. Louis, last
week, S. 0. Dunn, editor of the Rail
way Age, and one of the best post
ed railroad men in the country, pre
dicted that freight rates must go up.
This, he said, would happen whether
the railroads were returned to pri
vate ownership or remained under
Government control. This is caus
ed by the heavy increased wages
paid to employes and the multipli
ed cost of material. If freight rates
go up passengers rates and the pub
lic may expect to find railroad ac
commodations an expensive neces
sity in the future.

no passenger is likely to return.

Modern Country Homes
Many writers on rural economics
urge country people to put in
"modern improvements" very liberal
ly. They look forward to the time
when most country homes will have
all the modern electrical kitchen ap
pliances, vacuum cleaners, laundry
machines, water pipes throughout
house and farm buildings, batb
rooms, sanitary disposition of sew
age, and so on. -
A great many country places
have this equipment Many otnera,
however, still owe so much money
or have eo many expenses that they
don't feel up to it. The family that
has a group of children to educate
often struggles along in the oki
fashioned way, and spends every
cent on the future of those young
folks. It is a fine spirit of sacrifice,
though perhaps with a bit more
faith it would not be necessary.
During recent years land baa
made sharp advances in value. A
land owner may have no more ready
money in eight than he had 10 years
ago. But if his land has advanced
50 per cent, while his debts are no
greater, he is in a position where he
can add to the capitalization of bis
plant without imprudence.
The man who takes a hopeful
view of the future and does fit up
his houie with appliances for labor
saving and convenience, strengthens
his position. These facilities great
ly lighten the burden on the house
wife. She is much less likely to
fall sick and requires heavy doctors'
and nurses' bills. Saving her labors
gives her spare time, and she will
put it in for the benefit of the family.
She may spend it in ways bringing
in a greater money return than the
interest and depreciation on the
Also such improvements make
country living more attractive. They
help attach the young people to a
country home. The man who puts
away savings in such facilities is
usually making a good investment.
The American people are evident
ly in for a good deal of washing of
dirty military linen. The newly
formed American Legion will have
to take up some of of these pending
controversies. A large section of
the returning officers feel there are
serious grievences that must be
rectified. Controversy has gone so
far that it is alleged thit many
men were sacrificed in order to dis
credit commanders whom it was de
sired to put down.
For many years there have been
rivalries between Regular Army
and National Guard, also between
West Point men and those who
rose from the ranks, as well as other
divisions of sentiment It is a good
time for a general clean up and
show down, and an examination of
the organization and traditions of
the army system.
While these dissensious are un
fortunate, the army men are to be
given credit for self control and dis
cipline in adjourning these contro
versies for settlement after the war.
Some people are always saying
"hush." "hush" when there are
rumors of scandals. They will be
saying now, that if the seamy side
of army life should come out, the
Germans will no longer fear this
country, and will adopt a defiant at
titude. The German spies no doubt know
far more about the mistakes in the
American army organization than
the Americau people do. Now is
the time while the Germans are
prostrate, to clean up all abuses,
and all false standards and ideas
in the army organization. Investiga
tion may show that wrongs have
been much exaggerated. But there
will always be serious errors in any
j public organization that needs recti-

only way to get at it. The Amer
ican Legion has a very important
mission, to bring all these things to
light, and make constructive sugges
tions for betterment.
