To the members of the Congress of the United States? Gentlemen: You are much concerned with the high cost of living. You want to make it possible for the ordinary family to buy suffi cient food. Learned men will come before you with beautiful theories. Professors, economists, grain speculators will tell you that you mustn't do this or you shouldn't do that, because it isn't a funda mental solution of the problem and it interferes with the orderly processes of commerce and distribution. Maybe so?maybe so?but: Debates on economics don't help us eat. Excelletit theories don't bring down prices. . We dircct your attention to three suggestions that will bring re sults, now, with no perhapses: 1. Establish $1.50 wheat as the basis for American flour by re bating to the millers the difference between that figure and the guar anteed price of $i26 to the farmer. 2. Turn the army's motor trucks over to the rural free delivery branch of the Postoflicc Department, to bring farm products direct from the farms to the cities. 3. Limit exports of foodstuffs to the absolute needs of foreign nations, preventing shipments based merely on the higher prices foreigners are now willing to pay for American food. Of course, you will be told that such measures are only make shift*?that they won't lastirg'v solve the problem?that sufficient investigation has not been made to enable governmental authorities to recommend the proper polysyllabic solution. Possibly these measures are makeshifts. We fought the war with makeshifts?and we won. The problem now is to feed America?to give Americans proper food at prices they can afford to pay. There are three concrete ways of doing it C.ent'-men of Congress, your duty is to get it done! Of course, Germany will live up to her peace obligations. We limited the mzc of her army, and she obediently classed her reserves aj "local police." Eelgium says she would be glad to trade with us, except that Germany can make quicker delivery, grant longer credit and sell at hair our price. Italy's Temper. Nations are like individuals in their tempers and indiscretions. Italy is having evidtnee of this fact in a painful form. In the war period it borrowed heavily from the United States government. It got the money at an extraordinary rate of interest?3Vj per ccnt?when the United States was paying that much or more for the loans it negotiated with its own citizens. At the same time Italy was paying S'A P?r cent to its own people for the money it borrowed from them. Now Italy must borrow an immense sum?billions of dollars. The United States government is going or has gone out of the business of lending money to other nations. Governments now must negotiate their loans through bankers to a large degree. Italy wants $1,000,000, 000 as sot>ii as possible from America. It would like much more. Later it may seek much more. It must have money or its work of restoration will be delayed if not imperilled. A few months ago Italy was extravagant in its praise of America. Many of its municipalities changed the names of prominent tho roughfares in honor of America and particularly of America's Presi dent. Suddenly there was a change in sentiment. Because, in the Pesc: Conference, America opposed some of Italy's claims and par ticularly that in relation to Fiume the Italians turned to denunciation of the United States and restored the old names to the avenues and streets which had been named in honor of America. Italy is very heavily burdened with debt. It has not improved its credit position by its temperamental outbursts. Sentiment plays a part in barking as in every other branch of business. Regardless of the fact that the world appreciates that Italy, like a high tempered person, says and does more in her moments of irritation and excitement than she means the anti-American outburst may seriously affect the terms i: not the success of such loans as Italy negotiates in this country. When the house needs a new coat of paint and daughter needs a few new dresses, there is a job for some local dressmaker. The most efficient strikebreaker is a universal desire to do the souare thing. We believe that the Kaiser saw as much wood as his press agent says he sawed. 'Twould Be a Rare Perfume. Our European cousins have made fame and fortune by their suc cess in imprisoning the scents of fruits and flowers. The arts of the perfumer have for ages given joy to most of us; though we admit that some of the scents and unguents affected by the average movie damsel, the one who sits beside you, not the one of the screen, do not add to our heart's ease. But anyway, perfume is a great institution. But hov- much greater would be the perpetuation of real scents rather than the insipid smells of mere flowers. Suppose, for a quarter, you could get half an ounce of the essence of pork chop. Suppose you could lay this delight away in your shirt drawer, and '" months, carry with you the aroma of wealth, to the envy of your associates. What would it mean to the chicory inflicted public \i it could buy for a few paltry dollars the essence of real coffee? Not to quaff, just to sr.iff; think of the impression one would make who flourished a handkerchief tinged with the faint aroma of real java. And the perfume of liver and onions, to be used on your fur ear tabs on a January morning. And the gracious scent of two new laid eggs, fried in a pool of sweet bacon tat. But why pursue these will-o'-the-wisp, haunting memories further? Here indeed is a new field for the talent of American science and genius. Attar of roses and the flavor of woodland violets would seem tame, insipid and weak indeed beside such wonders as these. \nd how much more enjoyable the near meals we eat would seem if under our noses we held vials with the scent of real food oozing from them. This should receive the immediate attention and best endeavor of the Academy of Science; or anyway, the Cooks and Waiters' Union. In Budapest a reactionary-is anybody whose conscicnce bothers him after he has killed a property owner. The most encouraging thing about the settlement of Middle Eu rope is the fact that statesmen think it unsatisfactory.

Polite "Duty" from the Heart. "WTule passing the White House I caught sight of a familiar face peering through the bar* of the great gate next to Executive avenue. Approaching the locked gate I was confronted by the smiling coun tenance of FRANK EMMERT. one of the President's police ruards. The living picture of this kind-hearted guardian, framed in the big iron-barred gate, brought to memory an incident that came withrn my observation when I was a police reporter about thirty years ago As I recall the circumstances, it was late in the fall and old Jack Frost had decorated the earth with many fantastic ice designs and spread delicate films of lace work on the big show windows alonr Pennsylvania avenue. The north winds blew cold, and pedestrians scurried along wrapped warmly in tbeir greatcoats. The lights flickered and flared in the gusts of early evening, when Eounert's attention was attracted by a thin, piping voice: "Please buy mv flowers; I'm so cold, and I want to go home." The plea was made to a rotund, prosperous appearing individual by a small girl, thin1. clad and with a small shawl thrown oyer her head. The man o." plenty brushed aside the tiny mite of humanity who was assisting a widowed mother in her fight for bare existence, and entered a near-by restaurant where there were bright lights, music and gayety. The alert eyes of Frank Emmert, trained to detect crime, noted the cir cumstance. "Come here, little ffirl," he said in tender tones. She approached htm timidly as if fearing arrest, yet with a feeling of reassurance because the call was so different from the constant rebuffs she had become accustomed to. "What's the trouble5" "I'm so cold and hungry," the waif of tke streets replied, "and I want to sell out and get home "to my mamma " The kind-hearted policeman then noticed for the first time that the child was barefooted, and her feet were numb with cold and red. Now the average policeman is not wealthy, and they serve long and weary hours for the pittance they receive, but Emmert drew forth his purse and paid the girl for the three small bouquets she had left. He then bade her go with him to a near-by shoe store and bought her a pair of shoes. He asked for her address and sent her bom' on a street car, smiling ar.d happy. Two days later I met the little girl peddling flowers on Seventh street. She was comfortably attired with a warm coat, and mittens on her hands, and appeared to be radiantly happy. "Where did you get your nice outfit of clothes, Marie'" I asked. "Don't know, sir. They came to the house while I was out selling. I reckon old Santa Claus must have brought them, sir, don't you ?" * "Yes, it was old Santa, all ri fht" I replied, as into my mind came the picture I saw in the White House gate, the genial tace v earing the tame sort of a wholesome, whole-souled smile. Joyful "Come-On" of the Gypsy. In a storeroom on M street, Georgetown, a group of swarthy Gypsies have established a plant that deals out ready made ;Oy or gloom, according to the denomination of the "piece of money" with which you cross the dark fortune-teller's palm. A dollar gets you an overflowing measure of joy. while anything you get for less than 50 cents is flavored with ploom. In front of this particular place is a placard which states: "We give you a little free," meaning that, like a story "to .be continued in our next," you are led along by easy verbal approaches to a most interesting and thrilling point in your fortune, when the pypsy maiden hands you a jolt, and demands real money before she will proceed. For instance, she will tell her client ?that's what all well regulated Gypsy seers call 'em regardless of the abrupt cognomen applied to them by the late P. T. Barnum?thst a handsome blond or brunette stranger, always selecting an opposite to the client, has been manifesting great interest. "He has great influ ence and wealth.'' the fortune-teller hisses to make it more thr.Ilinf. "Does this stranger seek you for good or evil. Ka, ha. I s?e it tt'?. I know what he is after. Ha. ha. ha, ha." Then with sinister brutality the cold-blooded, dark-skir.ned maiden hands you the jolt. She says the free list is suspended and it will cost you one iron man to discover what is brewing in the mind of the handsome stranger. 11 is because of such tricky methods Capt FAL\E\. cojnma*d ing the Seventh police precinct, scattered one nest of Gypsies and is looking over the others.
