Associate Justice Brandeis, speaking for the United States Su -. preme Court, yesterday delivered ^ touching funeral oration over the late John Barleycorn. The audience, which filled the entire American stadium, was large and attentive?and in part, thirsty. The tears [ brought by the address were not plenteous enough to prevent many ?' parched lips from cracking. To the spirituous minded the fact that V the court was unanimous in its views contained not a crumb?beg pardon, not a drop?of comfort. While many a weary, expectant wayfarer across the dry sands ' sinks in despair at finding the hoped-for oasis a mirage?a figment of his "set-'em-up" desire?others habituated to water by their farseeing y parents or by the austerity of the past few months, rejoice in the im j pet us given to the use of their favorite brand, "aqua pura." Erstwhile wets are dry?and the drys are full of joy. V Certainly among those present in the vast audience hearts beat with many a conflicting emotion. Many waited with bated breath?and \ their breaths will be weak for a long time. To many Mr. Justice * Brandeis' pronouncement marked one of the crucial moments of their lives. (Note: The preceding sentence is to be taken differently by I' the friends and the enemies of John.) Loving attention is already being given to the descendants of John Barleycorn. Whether Dope is a direct descendant or a collateral relation is in dispute. Whether young Two-Seventy-Five Per Cent?an adopted child?is cut off without a cent will not be known until the ?.^decedent's will is probated. Particularly tragic is the situation in which the paid mourners find themselves. The late John Barleycorn had many a faithful re tainer on his payroll. For Viany lawyers?to mention only one class ,*.'in which there were many retainers?it is, indeed, a sorrowful world ^.Srith H. C. L. much alive and John Barleycorn's demise meaning the passing of a steady client , Many of the mourners looked particularly foolish. (It would be ^rude to mention the names of certain gentlemen who find themselves ! 'reversed.) Sad to the point of despair are those to whom these gen tlemen of the ermine granted ? few days' respite in which to resume K old habits. Cyi Many a good soul will be incensed at any levity on this occasion. '?But this is not intended for them. This is for those who are weary?but ^ who would like to be heavy laden?they should force a smile and re . member that the next day after this is tomorrow and that tomorrow '?s coming despite vile prophecies to the contrary. ^ What the war upon profiteers seems to need is a generalissimo. IV ?1 Paderewski forsakes the premiership of Poland and returns, to.the piano. Dischord for harmony, as it were. ?? Those who are manufacturing Presidential booms are now work -ins overtime with no thought of striking. From the chemist's report it is assumed that rainbow sugar was colored to suit the eye and not the taste. * Gen. Pershing's report doesn't say outright who won the world -' war, but one reading it can gather a fairly good idea. Maybe one reason why Congress opposes abolishing the Congres sional Record is that it fears it may have to listen to all of those un delivered speeches. Barnum Was Right Besides his reputation as a showman, P. T. Barnum left behind an opinion on human nature that as time progresses has evolved into a truism, "There's one born every minute." How else can the fact be explained that millions in liberty bonds are being transferred from the strong boxes of prudent investors to the pockets of smooth promoters in exchange for stocks and bonds of questionable value. Patriotism was the incentive for the original in vestment, glowing words and ridiculous promises the motive for the exchange. It took a well-organized and systematic campaign of preparation which lasted weeks before the government felt ready to offer the safest investment in the world to a patriotic public. Then it took thousands of four-minute speakers days before the pocketbook c.f the small investor was reached to guarantee the success of the issues. With the promoter a get-rich-quick prospectus backed up by smooth tongued salesmen appears to do the work just as effectively. The Associated Advertising Clubs of the World has just turned 'the spotlight on the latest of these easy-way-to-fortune schemes, which prospered amazingly until the postal establishment pricked the bubble for 70,000 investors. i These 70,000 investors contributed in liberty bonds and cold cash the sum of $9,500,000. When the promoter was finally brought to the bar of justice the company owed $250,000 and had visible assets of fs-wo. ? Investigation reveals that the promoter was a Mississippi school teacher, who, looking for new fields to conquer, branched out into the insurance business and then promotion. His faculty of expression was put to good use in the preparation of literature expounding the Virtues of an automobile, which for efficiency at low cost would sur pass a well-known Detroit product. Of course, the profits were to be fabulous. ? The investigation further revealed that the company had pro duced less than 300 machines and these had been largely built by ^ther companies. One of the printed testimonials of the promoter tet forth: "He is generous to a fault" It is difficult to trace where the money went, but. the main thing is it i* gone from hopeful investors. They never stopped to reason that prospects like those- pictured so glowingly in words would not aave to search far for legitimate capital. 1 Secretary of the Treasury Gla6s has pointed out the need of caution to liberty bond holders. Assistant Secretary Leffingwell fkas also issued a warning. Former Secretary McAdoo has advised ^areful investigation before liberty bonds are exchanged for securi ties of doubtful value. Conservative bankers tender siifiilar advice. In the face of all this the promoters find the field for fly-by-night Securities more profitable than it has been for years. Liberty bonds constitute the main reason. After all P. T. Barnum was right. < 1 With divorces on the increase there' is no sign of an armistice in Ihe domestic war.

Money seems to have opened the closed doors. One society editor tells of a funo tlon on fifth avenue the other night Where a newly made millionaire was With unfortunate geniality forcing a cigar on an abashed footman. The old crowd resents this vulgar Intru sion. but the younger element likes It. Most of the young folk got a taste of democracy In war work. If a newly-rich buys a home next door. tne? get acquainted. Then come Invitations, and the new crowd re ciprocates ,tn such lavish style that everybody goes for fear of missing something really big. Great homes of massive architec ture are being bought in the exclu sive sections by the new crowd. They are equipped with everything from hot and cold running butlers to anoestral portraits. The shops show them the greatest deference because they do not ask prices. And they pay their bills promptly. Nobody seems to understand this invasion by the newly rich. It has come about despite vigorous protests of the old guard. But It 1s Indica tive of a new order of things. New values are placed upon people. Fam ily history does not mean so much as It did. Still there Is talk of a new social leadership?someone who will "carry on" and separate the wheat from the chafT. so to speak. A young Kentucky girl with haxel eyes and black hair, ambitious to sing in opera, came to New Tork last summer to seek an engagement She called up the president of the Society of American Singers on the telephone. He was Just leaving I town and had no time to give at the moment. "Then 1*11 sing for you over the telephone." said the girl. And over the wire she sang the bell song from "Lakme." a most difficult coloratura aria. The Im-1 pressario was so much impressed that he postponed his trip and had the young lady come to see him. When she left she had a contract for a season. The v!n ordinaire In the Red Ink Palaces of the Roaring Forties is now served in Its diluted form wrapped in newspapers.

We did everything for ourselves but all the food we had was sent over to us by the dear Wtimers, together with milk. We cooked it ourselves, so there was no*one around the house to bother us at all. As we found that cleaning dishes took up an awful time we only took two meals a day. which was all we wanted. On Saturday eve ning I fried two chickens for dinner, while mother boiled the tea. snd we had cherries and wild strawberries, as well as biscuits and combread. To my pleasure mother greatly enjoyed the fried chicktn and admitted that what you children had sail of the |w?y I fried chicken was nil true.

B. JOYFUL This would be a finer world if only those who could do It better were permitted to find fault with the waj |it has beeu done. It is downright mean to steal milk from a baby, the blind man's penny, or the hungry'* bread. But it is business ability that enables one to Increase the price of milk so babj* can't get it; to boost shoe leather so the blind man must spend his last penny; to boost the cost of food so the hungry remain hungry. We preach the gospel of education, tax ourselves for schools, scold our children if they don't study, and con tinually hold before their eyes the ad vantages of learning. And we pay a prizefighter more for one evening's effort than the college professor for a year's endeavors. We pay a Caruso a thousand dollars, a night for singing a song we don't understand, and pay three dollars a day to a farm laborer who keeps us from starving. Now here all along we have been impressing our children with the idea they should study diligently, learn to Fpell and write. Behave themselves and act mannerly. Then?blooie! Along comes a man who writes a b6ok about a former president of the United States. "He was mischievous, wilful, daring, reckless." writes Prof. F. A. Ogg. of Yale. "Hardly an escapade took place in the community in which he did not share. In his early teens he swore like a trooper, chewed tobacco | incessantly, acquired a taste for strong ! drink, and set a pace for wildness i which few of his associates could keep up." Yes, you guessed 1L He writes of Andy Jackson. "He was neither studious nor teach able. He never learned to write the English language correctly. In an age of bad spellers he achieved dis tinction from the number of ways in which he could spell a word within the space of a single page. Of the great body of sciewice. literature, history and the arts he knew next to nothing." This was the intellectual equipment of the seventh president of the United States. But we and the teachcr continue telling Willie to study and be good so he can be president. Albert Beyer. one year old. Brooklyn. N.
