LAST BLOW AT CAPITALISM
Lenrneve Beautiful Scheme Puts End to
AlI Possibility of Laying Away
Any Money.
Among the many strange fruits of
the war is the fliat national legislation
on record that frankly champions th6
Prodigal Son and makes frugality not
only undesirable, but also impractica
blo. This law, according to recent
uews from Copenhagen, has been pro
mnulgated by-yes, of course-by the
inspired statesmen of the Soviets.
They are issuing a new currency
that's guaranteed to be specific cure
for ill the ills of capitalism. A differ
ent series of notes comues out each
ilionth and every series has a different
color. B1esides, a glorious innovation
in finance Is brought to pass through
the proviso that every note becomes
null, vold, Invalid, absolutely worthless
at the expiration of tlie month for
which it wa' enitted.
JResult: The soclal millennium! All
July wages, salary, profits, or income
received in pale green July currency
must be paid out by July 31. It can't
be exchanged after that date for t ",
glowing pluk of August's issue; and,
furthermnoro, it will seldomn )e accept
ed at its full face value, even In July,
by any concern not thoroughly soviol.
Ized. Thus all of Comrade Lenine's
oflicial, commercial, Industrial, or agi
cultural undertakings are assured of
ample savings, the creation of capital
becones thenceforth lmpossible.-New
York Nvening Post.
TO WALK ACROSS COUNTRY
Famous Swiss Pedestrian Will Make
Exhaustive Study of Men and
Conditions in America.
Dr. Maxime Leuret, the Swiss globe
trotting walker, recently arrived in
this country. Dr. Leuret, a graduate
in medleine of the University of Berne,
has trol the huamble path of the pedes
tikin through sot' .31.00) miles in
Europe and the two Anmerleas, ob
serves th- Boston Transcript. Since
tv started his walking campaign in
1014 he has worn out over 100 stout
an(d well-nide pairs of shoes--102, to
be exact.
Seeking new worlds to conquer Dr.
Leuret now proposes to walk across
the continent from New York to San
Francisco. Moreover, it is a "pa-y-as
you-go" 'affair with the (listinguislied
Swiss pedestrian. Spurning a walk
ing trip with all expenses pak(, lie Is
determined to earn the expenses of
his transcontinental venture by such
occasional and temporary jobs as may
liappen to turn up.
Dr. Louret will meet and study In
their homes and villages all the types
that make up the great Aimerlean
family. Ie will learn by actual con
tact, and not by reading a geography,
the country's topographical features.
Odd Beer Labels.
In certain American circles where
.bottled beer would readily circulate
as money, if tho laws were more oblig
ing, immediate approval will greet the
'late achievement of ain strian brew
ery.
Title concern happens to be the
"Krone" brewery, and that name
means "crown" in erman. Also the
present cost of such a label as the
brewery has been pasting on its bot
tied product is 10 swiss centihes
approxImately 2 Amerlean cents . I
normal times.
But the brewery Is now cutting down
expenses and delighting coninoisseuris
by decorating each quart bottle with
a one-crow~n note ait a cost of 7j%
coat lnes.

OGS ONCE CALLED.,VERMIN
Only in Comparatively Recent Years
Wave They Received Recognition
Under English Laws.
Our laws regarding dog bites, which
Judge Cluer declares .to be full of
anointlies, are all of modern date,
S6ays Tit-Bits.
There seems to be no reference to
dogs in any law passed before the
accession of Queen Victoria. In a case
heard by Mr. Justice Eliot in 1535 it
was ruled that dogs were vermin, and
for that reason the church would not
degrade Itself by taking tithes pf
then. Nor was a dog the subject of
inrceny at common law, the ruling be
ing that "a man shall not hanug for a
dog."
Parliament first began to notice dogs,
in 1838, by passing a statute increas.
Ing "the resources of civilization"
against the lawless doings of Irish
crs.
Ten years later, (log ilghtlig, bull
halting and bear balting were prohib
ited by parliament. letween 1854 and
1882 no fewer than eight statutes were
passed regulating the coiidition and
social status of the log, one of which
placed him in a position of a tax
Iayer. In addition to tiese which
applied throughout the United King
dlom-a special act wats framed to

WOULD SELL AT THAT PRICE
Broker Declined to Wait for Any
Further Advance in Quotations
on Preptred Foods.
A prominent curl) broker, wishing
to make his lunch period as brief as
possible, forsook his accustomed res
taurant, a very exclusive place, for
i "trust system" buffet.
Glancing up at the price board, he
noted "Pot lioast Beef with Corn
\Inilins, 30 cents," which he ordered.
ks he "self-served" himself to a vacant
lact at one of the tables, lie again
turned his gaze to the board, where
ie noticed an attendant was now do
ng some sleight-of-hand work.
With much astonishment he beheld
:he 30, denoting the price of "P. R. 13.
vith C. M. common" dexterously
!hanged to a 35. When he had suffl
Aently recovered from the shock, with
ilIate of victuals in hand, he ap
iroaehedI the food trader, and indig
iantly Inquired as to the cause of the
mudden change in price.
"Why, I bought this hgrdly three
inutes ago," he protested, "when it
,vts quoted 30."
The lunch room profiteer smartly an
iwered, "I know, but the asked price
. now 35."
"Well," shot back the broker, "I sup
)ose there's every indication of a fur
her rise, but I guess I'll get out now.
rou can sell this for me at thatt pri'e

Lrnded Freak Fish.
A wearied marine monster blundered
nto the net of a San Diego, Cal., fish
'rzman not long ago. On being pulled
nro the fishing smack by the aston
shed captain, it was found to nmnuro
little more than 15 feet long, and in
enernl configuration to resemble a

zifne. Its upper jaw was surmounted,
owever, by a clumsy-ooking horn of
olId hone. A month after its destrue
