Big army and navy advocates are much disturbed becaus ethe facts re garding government expenditures have at last reached the public. The citizens of the country have learned with alarm that 88.4 per cent of the total appropriations of the United States government for the fiscal year 1921 went to pay the costs of past wars and to prepare for future wars. It is necessary to cover up these disturbing facts somehow so the army propagandists are regrouping the year's figures and spreading them over the country in an effort to hide the important facts. The costs of the World War, comprising 52.2 per cent, of the whole budget are grouped to gether conspicuously as though they were an entirely separate item. Be side them are placed the amounts of .the currant 8ppr?l?r.iat'0ns for tne Army and Navy by way of ennui'st. ( but not with the idea that they sh t? considered together. They are vt Se taken sepai.w , mere to be no relation in the reader's mind between war costs and costs for maintenance and enlargement of the military machine. All emphasis is laid on the $450,000,000 appropriated for the Navy and the $418,000,000 for the Army which together amount to 18.3 per cent, of the whole expendi tures of the government. The public fa to think the only important fact is that the services get so small an amount of the whole. It is not pointed out that even this 18.3 per cent is more than half again as much as the entire amount that was spent for con ' structive purposes for the whole year. Less than twelve dollars out of every hundred spent by the government in the fiscal year 1921 went for con struction. The balance went to pay the costs of past destruction and to prepare for more, or, in other words, to pay war costs. That is the fact the militarists would cover up and that is what the tax-payer has found out. Having learned where over three-fourths of his taxes go no amount of white washing of the facts is going to siler.ce his protests. Those protests arc pouring into Washington from all sides. He is demanding results from the conference about to meet in that city; results which shall mean a real reduction in the armament bur den of the world. St- James Methodist Presiding Elder Rev. M. H.

During the deluge of "realism" Mrs. Southworth's vogue as a novel-writer declined, but the older generation, or the older generations, remained faith ful to her and her books sold well. Mrs. Southworth had furnished much entertainment for young and old peo ple for more than fifty years, but there came a time when age forced her to restrict her output. At least two of her novels were published after her death, and during her life and after its close many of her stories were re published, and there were numerous "new editions." Going Up. "Mildred's fiance was in the avla tlon service during the war, was he not?" "Yes, and I'll wager that he will establish a new record for altitude flights when he discovers how much It costs to keep Mildred in eiotlies." Judge. ing question: how can humanity jus tify or God forgive T Human hate demands no such toll; ambition and greed must be denied it. If mis understanding must take the blame, then let us banish it, and let under standing rule and make good will regnant everywhere. All of us de mand liberty and justice. There can' not be one without the other, and they must be held the unquestioned possession of all peoples. Inherent rights are of God, and the tragedies of the world originate in their at tempted denial. The world today is infringing their enjoyment by arm ing to defend or deny, where simple sanity calls for their recognition through common understanding. New World Fellowship "Out of the cataclysm of the World War came new fellowship, new convictions, new aspirations. It is ours to make the most of them. A world staggerinfi with debt needs its burden lifted. Humanity, which has been shocked by wanton destruction, would minimize the agencies of that destruction. Contemplating th measureless cost of war and the con tinuing burden of armament, all thoughtful peoples wish for real limitation of armament and would like war outlawed. In soberest re-1 flection the world's hundreds of mil-v nons wno pay in peace and die in war, wish their statesmen to turn the expenditures for destruction into means of construction, aimed at a higher state for those who live and follow after. "It is not alone that the world can-1 not readjust itself and cast aside the excess burdens without relief from the leaders of men. War has grown progressively cruel and more destruc tive from the first recorded conflict to this present day, and the reverse order would more become out boast ed civilization. "Gentlemen of the conference, the United States welcomes you with un selfish hands. wf harbor n we have ao sordid ends to serve; we J suspect no enemy; we contemplate or apprehend no conquests. Content with what we have, we seek nothing which is anothers. We only wish to do with you that finer, nobler thing, which no nation can do alone. "We wish to sit with you at' the table of international understanding and good will. In good conscience wc are eager to meet you frankly, and invite an offer cooperation. The world demands a sober contemplation of the existing order and the realization that there can be no cure without sacrifice, not by one Vf va, but by all of us. 1 Surrender No Rights. "I do not mean surrendered rights or narrowed freedom, or denied as pirations, or ignored national neces sities. Our republic would no more ask for these than it would give. No pride need be humbled, no na tionality submerged, but I would have a mergence of minds, commit ing all of us to less preparation for War and rfiore enjoyment of fortun ate peace. "The higher hopes come of the spirit of ouf Coming together. It is but just to recognize varying needs and peculiar positions. Nothing can be accomplished in this regard of na tional apprehensions. Rather, we should act together to remove the causes of apprenhensions. This is not to be done in intrigue. Greater assurance is found in the exchanges of simple honesty . and directness among men resolved to accomplish as becomes leaders among nations when civilization itself has come to its cru cial tests.

If the finer sentiments were not urging, the cold, hard facts of ex cessive cost and the eloquence of economics would urge us to reduce our armaments. If the concept of a better order does not appeal, then let us ponder the burden and the blight of continued competition. "It is not to be denied that the world has swung along throughout the ages without heeding this call from the kindlier hearts of men. But the same world never before was so tragically brought to realization of the utter futility of passion's sway, when reason and conscience and fel lowship point a nobler way. "I can speak officially only for our United States. Our hundred millions frankly want less of armament and none of war. Wholly free from guile, sure in our own minds that we har bor no unworthy .design, we accredit the world with the same good intent'. So I welcome you, not alone in good' will and high purpose, but with high faith. "We are met for a service to man kind.

"Here is a meeting, I can well be lieve, which is an earnest of the awakened conscience of twentieth century civilization. It is not a con vention of remorse, nor a session of sorrow. It is not the conference of ment. Nor is it a council of nation? victors to define terms of settle seeking to remake the human mind.

Merchandise with a name the name of its maker has the call. For only the maker of worthy goods can long afford to advertise. At the High Court of Public Opinion any other sort is soon condemned. Wise merchants and manufacturers seek the good papers to tell the story of their wares. The publishers seek the repu table advertising for the readers' guidance. The well-informed buyer seeks news of good merchandise through the columns of the best papers. This proves the value of advertising. Neither advertiser nor publisher can prosper without your patronage. There fore, it is to their advantage to cater to you. They do it, too. And it is distinctly to your advantage to be guided by the message they lay before you the advertisements.
