A seeker after curiosities recently compiled some of the predictions as to the ending of the war the most famous of which, of course, is the grim Kitch ener's laconic comment that it would last at least three years. This was in 1914. Son of the other prophecies were : Georges Clemenceau, former French Premier, Nov ember 2. 1914 "01 one thing alone I am certain: The war will be long, perhaps very long." 'Count Baschleri ot France, January 1, 1915 "Ger many will be vanquished. the.Kaiser will commit sui cide and peace will be declared on April 27." General Francois Joubert-Pienaar, ex-Boer leader, irr France, September 27, 1914 "The war will be long and fierce." Privy Councilor Richard Wlttin of Germany, Sep tember 28, 1914 There is not going to be any peace, not o a long time. It will be a long war. We are prepared for three years." Prince von Buelow, Jlarch 14, 1915 "Even if we do not win at once, our resistance will be long and may be changed Into victory. The war will be frightful, monstrous," Rudolph Martin, former Minister of the Interior of Germany, early in March, 1115 "Germany wUl dictate peace terms in London after two years of fighting." All of these predictions came from men who pre gumably bad some "inside" knowledge of the facts. Yet only those who admitted the war would be a long one have come anywhere near the truth. Thfc best prediction still is that the war is to be long drawn out, and Uncle Sam must prepare for a strug le whose bitterness it only guessed at now.

Sir: I wonder how many peopb of this city, particularly taxpayers, ever take a glance at the city and sovatv auditor's report It Is most interest ing reading, especially for those who wonder "where the money goes. There is bo need to go too deep into details, and a quoting from one de partment alone may whet the appetite for mere. I quote from the city sad county auditor's report for repairs to city and county automobiles (no sew purchases included) for-the last cal endar year, and the following are the amounts we taxpayers ar had to p angle up for repairs to city and coun ty machines, divided between actual service and Joy riding: Engineer's office $ 77.61 Electric light system zSt.07 Road Dept (auto trucks) . . . 306S.T3 Road Dept (water works) .. 1145.11 Mayor's office 144SJ4 Police Dept 320S.83 Garbage Dept 819.lt Building and plumbing 383J1 License commission 374-33 Totala ., I11.HU1 Almost 31000 a month for REPAIRS alone. That's going some. - Not departing too far from the asm subject it is written in the report that the road department bought tour mules, paying for the same fll3O.0. That's going some mere.

Sir: The first consideration of the people ot the United States today IS to increase the production of food. That Is paramount, for then la known to be a shortage. Tbe very next con sideration should be to eliminate all waste of food. Inquiry and commis sion are working hand Jn band with s view to revealing every possible ave nue of economy In food production, consumption and preservation. It might be well for the people et this country to adopt the regulation issued by the British government, that forbids the sale of bread-which is less than twelve hours old. We might go our British cousins one bet ter by' making the sale Unit time twenty-four hours instead of twelve The reason is obvious. Such a state of affilrs woula create a saving of several million . bushels . of wheat la one year, and every loaf ef bread baked would be eaten, by the people, There would be bo half loaf dUetrdv ed and a new loaf purchased :ach morning. -Ws cn accustom orseJvee to many things, and. eating-twenty four hour old bread could be one of them.
