Ordinarily, fcivi-n proper rare, lovs il miinaite to iotr the years of their youth without doing any groat aimiunt of deviltry. But it lakes u t-tiong man and a good woman' time to bring them up along "Ihe right lines. BesddoH the influence in the homo, there are a dozen other forces at work tending to keep them in the proper puths. The churches, (nd the Hoy Scouts, mayhap the Campfire girls, the big brother an l the younger nit-tors, all help, to take tout the rowdyism and smooth down the rough spots. Now and then, however, boys will form into lawless bands, and they are JuhI as dangerous as though they Nvere grownups on mischief lent. The older men, out on a tear, have com non Hense to guide them, no matter if it isn't apparent at times. With rang of boys, the wildest one is the ringleader, and the rest will do ny old thing that he suggests. Two or three evenings ago, no less than twenty boys, aged all nr way j from nine to fifteen, .started out on a lark. Nobody knows how so many toys of Kuch varying ages ne allowed to roam the streets at ungodly hours, tut these are facts. They stilted in atl the tent show and attempted to gain admission in the time-honored way of crawling under the flaps. They were perceived, routed and revengeful. Hot being able to damage the show, they Ftarted out to find something they could dumage. An automobile intrigued their interest. They tried to tip it over and would have suc ceeded had not the police intervened a second time. This would have been enough for most loys. An hour or two dipped by, and complaint was made that a gang of boys were in danger of of setting fire to some buildings in the residence pail of town. "1 his time the police not only disper.-ed them, but captured a half dozen. They were Kuch little kids that nothing wis done. The chief lectured them nnd turned them loose, and after a while they went home and to bed. Ten t one their parents know nothing of ,t. CT?n1y one thing make a man mad-j der than to preach to him on the sub' joct of his own faults and that is to let him know that you think his chil dren, need combing down. Every man and woman has a private conviction that the children of others are little hoodlums, and need a sterner hand to iruide them, but their ewn ah, Uu: lit tle darlings arc not bad, really, they are only mischievous. Knowing the propensity of parents to condone the faults of their off ering, as well as to resent any sort of outside interference, v.he Alliance yoljcp rnnppt he blamed for not going uirectly to the parents, especially wince the children were released. The next "time, the jKillce cay, they'll follow the hard-boiled route anil take the youth ful offenders to jail. And so this is in the nature of a t'p to parents. If you son plays down town when he ought to be at home, better find out what he does anil who he trails with. Any nuin vho goes to the business section at niul't will tee dozens of cli'hhen on the streets. I Yea Piny think your ov. n are at home, t-Ui 1, Wu'.U l)C- aiiis:ib!t V.' ilU'V TaTore the next re'gn of kid terro for after all, it is the ronsibilit Of the parents, rnd one pi. U i Um,er-.voo, f coui-w, that every ll.i ,""Y1J Buiitfcriber knows exactly what his. children are doing whj thr-y 0 cut of an evening, and that ibis warning applies only t children in the hou-e next door, or across the alley. But if the police happen to get one ol )iun by mistake, of couivr- you Uiay be put to some little annoyance in explaining the error. In the meantime, is it too much to hope that some of thoe days the city will wake up and public spirited cit irens see if there isn't some way to provide amusement for boys. They don't have so very much choice, now. Maybe, if the truth were known, they would rather be somewhere than in the btreets. If movies and pool halls and gutters are the only outlets pro vided, rest assured that these are the places where boys will be found. Once on a time, years ago, parents made the home a pleasant place for boyt- and girls, and maybe, if boys prefer the streets, there's a reason for it. The police, however, aren't philosophers, Hit simply protect property, and it unil rapture rhiblitn, but if r.ece-Fary it cnn be !ne. DA M At; KM PIN ) P A C A S U.. The federal Wilhs should investi gate the stories thnt have been float ing all thp-e yarns about the homesick rnd lonely American tro ps now nat tered in llcrmany. Merc all of us have been under the impression that the I tiited States was keep'ng a mimlx of :inl-eyeil soMiers on the Kh'r.e tiieri who w re l; ing to coine homi I hese stories- have been lficntl.v ri fut'-d in no uncertain terms b. the (''iblenz cone; pendent of the New York Times, who made a p rsonal in estig;ition and has bi'en U ted b;.

Those stories may le only another case of German pro paganda, just as were the tales o the black troops uai1ered there by the French, who were alleged to 'c committing atrocities against the un- piotected German women. The actual condition ifl said to be as follows: The American troops in Germany do not want to go home. They like it very well where they are, thank you. the officers live in a style they cou'd not have at home. There are schools for their children, commissaries to supply American goods cheaply, their jobs are easy, for the Germans are behaving, and their salaries go a long way at 77 marks to the dollar. As for John W. Doughboy, he lias no kick whatsoever. His tasks are limited to a certain amount of drill work, par ticipating in athletic games, swimming in the Rhine, eating all he needs r.nd seeing how wonderfully far his dollar a day goes in cheap marks. Non-fraternization rules belong to the limbo of the past ami his helpful influence among the youthful ft-male population of the Khine isdiowa bv the fact that almost every goMl-look- ing gin in me area can lain "Ameri can . Certainly the German population in the American area does not want the Americans to go home, for thst wot Id mean the coming of the French. With all due respect to our valiant Allies. the Germans in Coblence say they pre-1 ier me uougnrjoy 10 tne poilu as a i.eighbor. That is not to the discredit of the Fiench; it Is to the credit of the Am-1 eiican, who has shown himself a fair' fellow when treated well nnd a bad, j bad boy when treated roughly. No one cer accused the Germans of not learn-' ing this early in the American occupa-'. lion. And so all goes smoothly in ('ohlenz. Moreover, the poilu gets ' itnd spends -i.nly f ,nt a day. i The soldiers on the Khine do not V-is-h tc S home, Th? CJermnns do not want them to go. The Allies do not want them to go. Apparently the de-; sire that they be ouicklv broueht back to their native soil is a desire peculiar U it n iStv . .... . - k' Here's thArnrriftinHfirVnii Want 'I'-'n Deere is the kind of binder you rv6nt in your corn fields. There's no work for you in operating it, and it's easy on the horses. It's the biggest improve oent made in corn binder construction for many years. JOHNiSBEERE CORN TT.e binder with Power Carrier The John Deere is equipped with a power bundle carrier. To dump the bundle only slight pressure on the carrier trip is necessary. The bundles are de livered all in one pile away from the path of the horswi this is a labor-saving worth-while feature. You will like the Quick Turn Tongue Truck. It takes oft" all neck-weight from the horses and enables them to turn at the ends freely and easily. This truck makes the horses' work a lot easier.

Paris sayr, 'Women's skirts are going to be onger dow n to their ankles." That i s a suitable topic. A headline in the '.Vorld says, "Paris or no Paris, women .vill not wear long skirts, so there." Let us hope so! Some current skirts tre too short for giate, but in the nain women's skirts were never in the nemory of living Americans so nearly right as now, and on the whole, never n interesting and so pretty. If Paris is Rble to lengthen them unduly for the benefit of various lines of busi ness that benefit by changes of fash on, it will be really a mortifying thange. A partial emancipation of women from the control of Paris fashions is in every way desirable. These are times to meet for economy, ind rapid changes in fashion, if wom en really follow them, are extremely wasteful. Our Cleaning Pleases If it's soiled send it to us.

It is equipped with roller and ball bearings, 17 sets in all, which lighten the draft and de crease the wear. It has three packer arms and four discharge arms on the regular attachment instead of two com monly used on other binders. This insures prompt discharge and complete separation of the bundles. In every particular you will find the Jo) in Deere Binder ia built on a quality standard that means real satisfactioa Oua profit to you. The parsers also speak of women's bathing clothes. A change was due( in them, a change in the direction i f less clothes. It has tome and, of course, in a good many t ases it is . overdone, but in the main the thangc i good. It is an adoption of thp bath-1 ing fashions of Kurope, in part at least. We haven't got bathing ma chines yet, but we have got, or are rapidly getting, the one-piece suits.
