George Wishcop of Chippewa vil­
lage, died this morning. He had been
suffering from consumption for some
time and a few days ago contracted

ive of this county.
The Spanish influenza seems to be
increasing in the county. New cases

ber. have contracted pneumonia. We
wish again to caution the people to
exercise the utmost care in prevent
ihg the disease from spreading.

The ProMemil of the Coming Years.
Peace With Development
and Progress.
t^ddress to the Home Market Club.—
'^Njce has come. But peace is not
idllfet&ss peace is not sleep, peace is
not inactivity.' Peace is order peace
is righteousness peace is develop­
ment and progress. When the crash
and chaos of creation were brought
to peace and order, when the forces
of the universe were harnessed for
development and progress, God said
—not, let us sleep, but "Let there be
Light." The fury of war has ended,
and the forces of life must be mar­
shalled for development and not for
disorder for construction not for
destruction. We need to hear again
a voice commanding "Let there be
light," light upon the problems of
life, light upon the path which men
must tread toward a finer and a nob­
ler civilization.
It is. significant that Germany's
armistice delegates were received by
Marshal Foch in a railroad car in
which the commander-in-chief of the
alMed armies had headquarters. He
was moving forward, ever forward.
We cannot sit still, we must move
ahead. Victory flies on the wings of
the morning. God's truth keeps
marching on. Progress is the order
of the universe and the law of life.
Our sacrifices are in vain if we have
not moved forward since August,
1914. Our victory is a hollow one if
this is not a better world to live in
than it was when the war broke out.
The war was waged to destroy au­
tocracy, and not merley to change
the form in,N which autocracy might
manifest itself. We did iut-ftjht to
destroy the df Jkand
establish the'Tonita Hght^l^inobs.
Bolshevism cannot be permitted in a
world thai banished kaiserism. We
have abolished the autocratic rule of
kings and have established the sov­
ereign right of the people, but the
rv»le rf he_people jnust jbe just and
righteous or it will become as op­
pressive as the rule of a Kaiser or a
When William II took up the
reigns of government as King of
Prussia and Emperor of Germany, he
declared: "There is only one master
in this country. I am he and I will
not tolerate another. There is only
one law, my law, the law which I
myself lay down." Never again will
a king or emperor utter such words
as these, and" -never will the spirit
that prompted them be tolerated in
this republic- We have come too
close in recent years to a temper of
this kind in our own government.
The unrestrained will of a President
is as dangerous as the unrestrained
will of a king, and it is a fortunate
thing that this tendency met with a
decisive rebuke at the recent elec­
tion. We were willing to fight to
make the world safe for democracy
but we were not willing to vote to
make the country safe for Demo­
Absolutism in government has end­
ed in this country and abroad. "Abso-
lutism in industry cannot be permit­
ted. Neither capial alone nor labor
alone should dictate to the American
people. The problems of the coming
years should be worked out in a
broad and patriotic spirit. We should
meet in the fellowship of this new
age and in the spirit of the new bfo
therhpod sanctified by the blood of
the heroic dead. They died for anew
world and a better civilization. God
grant that these dead shall not have
^.ied in vain.
Arthur Mitchell of Duluth and R.
N. Dickman of Chicago, arrived on
the stage last Wednesday evening
and left for the interior the-next
day to look oVer some mineral lands.
F- R. Paine, his brother John B.
Paine of Toronto, Ont., and John
Slingsbey of Dunnville, Ont., return­
ed yesterday from a very, successful
moose hunt at the Paine lodge at
Olga Soderberg came home on last
Thursday's stage. She has graduated
from the Mankato normal school and
has accepted a position as teacher,
but as her school was closed on ac­
count of influenza she came home for
a visit.
On account of the high price of
cotton the snow in the Santa Claus
tableaus this Christmas is going to
be light and sifting.
Some girls at Lawrence, Mass., ac­
cused of being disloyal say they
were compelled to stancL on "their
heads and salute the American flag.
This was- one patriotic celebration
that most of us missed.
And now those railroad posers
which displayed Mr. McAdoo'S name
so conspicuously will have to be
printed all over again.
Several newspapers have criticized
the President's intention of going to
Europe but none has had the nerve
to say that Col. House couldn't come
home and. take care of things in the
President's absence.
Sir John Lavery is going to paint
the scene of the Hun fleet surrender
but it's a good bet the picture won't
be hung in the Berlin art gallery for
some time.
Indications are that Congress
knows better than anyoif the rest,of
us how to get the most mileage per
gallon of gas.
Premier Clemenceau has asked for
legal opinions on the rights of the
allies to extradite Wilhelm and if
this thing has to be fought out in
the courts the ex-Kaiser will prob­
ably die of old agein Holland.
Cold' feet is going' to be the fash­
ionable thing for Christmas
Germany this year,
The farms and the homes of Amer­
ica are to face serious problems as
a result of the world war and the
conditions that have Been produced
by it. So serious are these that men
and women in positions to know best
what the conditions are are asking
what is to be done-
This" question is going to be hand­
ed on, with some attempts to an­
swer it at Farmers' and Home-Mak­
ers' Week at University Farm, St.
Paul, December 30 to January 4,
Minnesota's great annual congress
of farm and home interests.
The whole program of the "week"
as it has been announced will deal
with problems which will help to
point the farmer and the home-mak
er aright in meeting the issues of
the reconstruction period patriotic­
ally and yet to their own advantage.
The subjects to be dealt with at
the regular sessions will include tax­
ation, farm crops,- farm manage­
ment, soils, livestock, dairying, vege­
table growing, fruit raising, plant
pests, farm engineering, poultry,
bees, and animal diseases. They will
include for the women the planning
of meals, food conservation, fabrics
and the designing and making of
clothes, home management, child
welfare, and the home care of the
If Mr- Roosevelt has not exploded
about something or other in connec­
tion with the terms of the armistice
before this goes to press, we admon­
ish our readers to be patient a little
longer. Either the terms of Foch
will not be sufficiently drastic or
President Wilson will spoil the broth
or something else will happen to
give the bombastic colonel of the
Rough Riders an excuse to beat the
air and otherwise promote his can­
didacy for 1920.
We thought for a while that the
News Tribune, had found the "ex­
cuse" for the expected Rooseveltian
outburst when it opined that "John
J. Pershing might make as good a
president as he has made a general."
Perhaps General Pershing is due to
get his from, the colonel next. "Who
can tell? Pershing is-said to be a
Republican, and, therefore, extremely
dangerous—to Roosevelt.
Just a little more patience, dear
reader. The irrepressible colonel
.will be heard from soon, and he will
run true to form.—The Labor World*

The Human Body Compared1 With
Other Engines. Fat and Sugar
Most Essential.
Carbohydrates are burned as sug­
ars. They burn rapidly, and make a
fire in a short time. However, they
cannot yield the strong steady heat
of fats.. Sugars are like the light,
soft woods with which we start a
fire. They burn quickly with a hot
flame and produce afire immediate­
ly. In building afire we make a
foundation of light woods, shavings,
chips, etc. When that is. well start­
ed we pile on the hard wood, which
is enabled to get a good start from
quickly burning light wood. Then we
have a strong and lasting fire- That
is just the way we build and regu­
late our fire in the body stovev The
sugars are the kindling which burns
so rapidly and starts the strong,
steady blaze of the hard woods, or
fats. When the body needs a bright,
quick fire, which will yield energy at
once, we can use sugar, an^i find that
a? a result, we are enabled to do our
particular task without fatigue.
However, in winter when we must
look forward to a strong steady fire
to keep us. warm and able to accom­
plish things we must build our fire
and then, add, the hard woods (fats.)
That done, cold weather Wild not
need to keep us indoors, and our
body engine will keep us fit and ac­
Every engine depends upon fuel of
some sort to supply it with the en­
ergy or power to run. Just as an
automobile^needs gasoline, and a
steam engine must have coal, the
body engine must have its fuel. It
is really a sugar and fat burning en­
gine. The fats and sugars are burn­
ed to supply the heat and power to
keep the body active and working.
Just as the automobile could not
travel so rapidly over the many,
many miles if it had no gasoline to
burn and the steam engine could not
run the machine and do all the work
it does if it had no coal to make the
stearrr, neither could the body live
and do all the muscular and mental
work it does if the sugar, and fat
which it takes in did not bum and
furnish energy.—Minnesota Public
Health Journal.

Nearly all of the foods taken in
are used to some extent as fuel. Ev­
en the protein which, fus its chief
work, builds up the body substance,
is burned indirectly, when a larger
amount of it is taken in than can be
used for making new substances and
repairing used-up substances. How­
ever, the protein which is burned is
not burned as protein, but as sugar
When you consider that' the foods
are all composed of the three ele­
ments of carbon, hydrogen and oxy­
gen, only in different arrangements
and with slightly varying additions,
it does not seem strange that one
should be converted into the other
in the body. 'The protein which can­
not be used as protein-building ma­
terial or as sygar-fuel is reduced to
various fragments and then stored
in the body as fat for reserve fuel.
We^arfe all looking forward to good
coasljing this winter.

RAT TAX $3,MO,•»*.•»
Minnesota's rats probably* cost
farmers and others $3,000,000 anna-
government estimate of fSO^Q^iOOff
for the entire United States. In
other words, it requires the constant
labor of 2 men out of every 1,000 to'
make up the loss caused, by rats.
This great waste may be very
greatly reduced. For this reason
the division of entomology and econ­
omic zoology of the Minnesota col
lege of agriculture, University farm
St. Paul, is seeking to encourage the
people of Minnesota to begin a cam­
paign against the rats by building
rat-proof structures for the housing
of foodstufs and by thorough-going
trapping and poisoning.
F. L. Wasburn, who' has the cam­
paign in charge, urges Minnesota's
people to keep all attractive food
away from the pests and to remove
litter and refuse that may give them
shelter. Communities wishing to put
on local campaigns for the destruc­
tion of these expensive pests should
correspond with Mr. Washburn at
University Farm, St. Paul.
