According to Secretary of War Baker,
the millionth man of tbe American Ex
pedltionary Force· will be brought borne
this week. That i· certainly good speed,
bringing home a million men in six
months, and indicate· that another six
months will be sufficient to get tbe otber
million borne. And perhaps by that
time they will get cangbt up with tbe
caeutlty list·, so that we shan't be
shocked by reading of the wonnding of
onr boys wbo are at home and In good
health.
"Ten mills make one cent" it the first
line of a table that we learned in school
more or lee· year· ago. At the present
rate of increase of price· and expend
iture· generally, tbe lioe will before long
be obsolete. We shan't need any aacb
•mall thing a· a mill, even in reckoning
tax rates.
Ponr hundred and eighteen million·
in tbe past fifteen months is what the
deficit in tbe operation of the railroads
by tbe government amounts to. This
shows that tbe Democrat was not an exact
propbet when it predicted at tbe time
tbe railroads were taken over that it
would take a billion dollars a year in
taxation to pay for government opera
tion. But tbe Democrat did not know
it the time that passenger and freight
rates were to be marked up as tbey have
been.
One of tbe amusing things of tbe
preeent day is the attempt tbat booze
dealers are said to be about to make to
prove tbat tbe prohibitory constitutional
amendment is "unconstitutional".
If the weather bureau doesn't provide
some respectable weather for flying
pretty soon, this rivalry between Britlab
and American aviators for the honor of
the first trans-Atlantic flight will get
into tbe well-known condition of a priai
fight on paper.
