Missoulian Publish;ng Company THURSDAY, OCTOBER 15, 1914. Trade's proud empire hastens to swift decay. -Johnson. THE SOCIALISTS AND WAR It becomes evident, as we get truer pictures of the 'war, that instances in which the socialists proved unpatrio tic are few. Both in France and Ger many, they rallied loyally to the stand ard. The dream of a world-family is still unattainable. Because this is so, we are always inclined to regard with equanimity the loud anti-flag talk of American social ists. We will remember that at the outbreak of the Spanish war, you ran imminent risk, in going in to try to enlist, of being trampled to delth by a horde of socialists, flying to the re cruiting sergeant's desk. RUSSIAN REVERSES. Russian reverses were inevitable, so soon as the Germans massed any reas onable body of troops in East Prus Sia. Historic clashes between Teuton and Slav has always endnd one way and even without the genius of aL Frederick, Wilhelm should have little difficulty in repelling the present Russian in vasion. Winter may soon close the campaign in'that section. With the adven't of spring, if the war is not ended mean while, a larger force of muscovites may enter East Prussia. His success or failure in the west will then determine the kaiser's fate. But so long as the odds are not more than five to one, the Germans can be counted on to dis pose of the Russians very handily. HELPING COTTON The cot'on trade is undoubi : lit in a had' way. But so is copper and many other trades. We cannot see why bond issues should be legislated for any particular industry, unless all are helped. Now and then, the southern demo crat in congress gets a trifle sectional. It is a habit they : i living down in gratifying fashion; ,iiut a habit still strong in them, on i 'a:ion. Whether the gove. lilunt coul or should step in at such a tine is a. mnot matter. A growing American eienuat is inclined to think it can and shall. But while the legality and wislomn of such procedure are in doubtl, it would be well not to show to,, mulch favorit ism. Perhaps, after a beating or two monre the czar will take to drink. Neither Joffre nor Von Kluck ap pears to be in the Stallings class. Now that the Boers have decided to fight under the British nanner, the kaiser lets the cat out of the bag. It was he formed the pllan by which "Bobs" won the Boer war. Incidentally, in declaring and en forcing prohibition all over his em pire by a stroke of his pen, the czar has the American prohibition party backed off the map. It may yet develop that the kaiser has up his sleeve a siege gun that will shoot from Ostend to Dublin. SENTIMENT VS. SENSE The Montana Associatioi. Opposed to Woman Suffrage embraces, to our personal knowledge, many noble women of model characters, some of whom are undoubtedly sincere. But this association has reprinted,' in sober good faith, and scattered broadcast, an article- from The New York Sun, which appears to us to be about as good an argument for suffrage as ever was printed. The article drags in "Mother." Our mothers are always available for penny-a-line ten twent'-thirt' playwrights, moving picture artists and tin selled campaign orators. When any cause lapses, mother and the dear old starry banner are called upon. But in most of their class of sentiment, there is very little sense. Read this bit from The Sun, laid before you by the Moh tana Association Opposed to Woman.Suffrage as an argu ment: Our Mothers, you whom we honor tomorrow, because of us you have won no fame in the public arena. You have played the game of life for higher stakes; self-abnegation and self-nacrifice have bee: your lot. They were the portion of the Christ in whose footsteps you have fol lowed. Your goal has been spiritual achievement, not worldly suc cess. Tomorrow your sons and daughters, careless and strong and young, will arise in the ganes and call you blessed. When the church hbells ring- throughout the land fold your worn hands and breathe a prayer for us all, your children. We need your intercession sadly, for many of us have come a hitter distance since we learned to whisper .t your knee, "Our Father, Which Art in I-eaven." Some of us have tasted the dregs in the cup. * * * Oh, Mothers, our Mothers, what have you not endured for us, in your bodies, in your hearts, and ih your souls? As we pause to pay tribute to you there rises a lump in the throat and we cannot see be cause our eyea are bl'nd with tears. The ground upon which we are standing is holy ground. Your halo is the connecting link between earth and heaven. Do not discard it for a wreath of dusty laurel leaves. Blessed are you among wo nen today, for of all women you have chosen the better part. Now, to an argument like this, there is always one cogent reply: That "Mother" was what she was, not be cause she did not vote but in spits of the factc that she did not vote. Mother could have been happier and sweeter and here lived far longer, if she had had a vote. For not a few of us remember mothers who suffered deeply as the direct result of man-made laws-selfish, one-sided, all-for one-sex laws-which woman will wipe off the statute book, when she gets the ballot. The dear old Mother argument is out of date. It implies that we who favor suffrage either had no mothers or did not appreciate them. You will find, if you look into this fight, that most men who favor suffrage do so because they remember the deal "Mother" got under the present made for-man system. On the Spur of the Moment By ROY K MOULTON. The Fall Housecleaning. The beds are piled up in the barn and pa sleeps in the sink, Us kids sleep in the bathtub, which is pleasant, I don't think. The kitchen range is inside out, the carpets upside down, We've got the fiercest lookin' house, I guess in this man's town. For 'most a week our pa and ma ain't said a pleasant word. I shouldn't be surprised at all if a di vorce occurred. Pa says it is a doggone shame and makes him mighty sore. It seems to him the gol dum house was clean enough before. We're camping out and catin' all our meals now standin' tip. It's been a week since we have had a real clean knife or cup. Pa says what is the doggone use of diggin' in l.ie sin, W\hon in a week, the house will he all dirtlied un ag'in? Us kids get licked three timeas a day if we need it or not. It's dangerous to stand around in al most any spot.

"James F. Yates volunteered to move a nei.lhbor yesterday. When the wagon was loaded with furniture Yates got on to ride to the new home.

Help the Stomach Digest Ycur Food When the stomach fails to digest and distribute that which is eaten, the bowels become clogged with a tass of waste and refuse that fer ments and generates poisons that Ire grailually forced into the blood, causing distrcss and often serious illness. Most people naturally object to the drastic cathartic and purgative agents that- shock the system. A mild, gentle laxative, positive in its effect and that will quickly relieve const:paCton is Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin, sold by druggists at fifty cents and one dollar a. bottle. It does not gripe or cra~mp, but acts easily and pleasantly and is there fore* the most satisfactory remedy for children, women and elderly persons. For a free trial bottle write to Dr. W. B. Caldwell, 451 Washington St., Monticello, Ill. Adv. NATURALIZED CITIZENS BETTER STAY AWAY FROM CONTINENT Washington, Oct. 14.-Considerable concern was manifested at the state department today over the status of American citizens, both native and naturalized, who were caught in bel ligerent countries by the outbreak of the European war and drafted for military service because they or their fathers were born subjects of such countries. This has occurred in countries with which the TUnited States has no naturalization treaties and has called forth a wardintg, issued to foreign born elements in the United States by the department against visits to Europe at this time. HORRORS OF THE WAR TOLD IN LETTER TO COLVILL A tiny cross-section of the horror which is Europe is described in a letter received today by H. C. B. ('olvill. The letter was sent by a relative of Mr. Col vill, livinz in a little village near London. Though far from the seat of I war, the little hamlet has been whirled I into the terror and tragedy of the con- IL flict. Like other quiet, removed towns ( throughout Europe, the ordered ways. It has followed for centuries have been twisted by the death-grapple of the Europealn lowers. The author of the letter writes that I she is caring for a Belgian woman and her two little daughters, all refugees 1 from the war-swept land. The three ( are the only survivors of a family that was typirclly large before the war broke out. All of the children save the two lit. tle g'rls have been killed, and the father is listed as missing. The girls, both mere infants, htve had their hands cut off by the German Invaders, Ith writer says. The mother is crazed ih grief over the loss of her children and the mutUation of the two lahiles and Iy anxiety for her hus band. Other fam:ilies, in the English vil lage :re caring for other refugees, the letter says. Almost every family has its guests, ;nd conditions there un doulbtedly a!re typical of conditions throughout Europe. Makes Face Young Tightens Love Ties A fretful expression, a wrinkled face and a faded complexion, do more to drive the male members from home than is conmmnonly supposed. It was Ione of my greatest difficulties to ap pear smiling, fresh and elegant when my dear ones were with me. But I have overciome all that. I have changed my mental attitude and I now find it second nature to look cheerful. Due partly to this, partly ot a re markable treatment recommended by a friend, mny appearance has so im proved I look fifteen years younger than before. A simple face lotion made by dis solving an ounce of powdered saxo lite in a half-pint witch hazel, proved a wonderful wrinkle-chaser. I stil use this occasionally. To renovate my complexion I purchased an ounce of ordinary merecolized wax at my drug gist's and before using this up, a marvelous transformation had taken I place. It was like removing an un sightly mask, revealing a new face, a youthful complexion of. distinctive delicacy, clear, white and velvety. I merely applied the wax like cold cream before retiring, washing it off morn ings. Ten days' treatment sufficed.

MUNSTERBERG'S HEAD SOUGHT BY ENEMIES Boston, Oct. 14.-Nothing less than I the official head of Hugo Munster- I berg, professor of psychology at Har- n yard, will please some of the alumni, e who hav\'e been irritated by the activ ity of the brilt!ant schciuar in his pro German cause in Anmcrica. Dean Briggs has received at least C written demand that the Harvard au thcrities displace the professor imme diately on pain of losing a great be quest already placed in the writer's will. The man to name this condition is Clarence Wiener, formerly of Phila delphia, but now head of the Wiener news agency, 64 Strand, London. He was in Harvard in 1896 and 1897, and was on the staff of F. D. Grant In Porto Rico as captain after the Span ish war. Munsterherg said tonight that he had offered his resignation to Presi dent Lowell. "I sent my resignation to President Lowell so that there might be no em barrassment in the matter and the faculty be left free to act without having to consider my feelings," he said. Harvard has always allowed her professors the widest latitude in dis cussing public questions. But there is unquestionably considerable feeling among Harvard graduates that he has overs'epped the bounds in his patri otic outbursts. .So far no formal movement has been tackn to oust the professor. Several of the Harvard magazines have contained letters and editorials objecting to the outspokenness of some professors.

There was some talk of muzzling the instructors by censoring their utter ances, and the Harvard Crimson had ap editorial objecting to such a pro ccdure. Many suggestions were made to the governing body of the college that in terviews and articles be censored, but Dean Briggs said the college had never interfered with a free anid open expression of opinions upon public matters by the professors and never would. , THE MISSOULIAN - S ENTINEL CLASSIFIED ADS BIJING RESULTS.
