The New Use of Wealth
It is all in getting used to it. This country
within the last two years has got used to spending
motley in a big way. Once we got started, we spent
more money than there was in the whole country and
then lent a lot to people in Europe. Altogether we
handled and got rid o more real money than there
was in the whole world. That may seem strange
but it is true. We shall not attempt to explain it
but those who do not bcleive it have only to find
out as they may, how much actual money there was
in the world a couple of years ago, (that is easy to
find out from year books.) and subtract from it
i be aggregate of all our Liberty and Victory loans,
Hie other billions we appropriated for governmental
purposes, the millions that were given to the Red
Cross, the Y. M. C. A., and all the various forms of
war work.
That a good many millions were absolutely
wasted, so far as concerns the attainment of the ob
jects, for which the money was appropriated, has
nothing to do with the matter. They were still a
!art of the money we raised and spent.
Before the war we were accustomed to think that
there was nothing but money. We did not take into
iccount other forms of wealth which money only
inadequately represents. We had been making no use
ol' that at all. We were paying taxes on that wealth
when we were not agile enough to dodge the t;c
gatherer and we were gathering from it only sudti
pitiful increment as we could in the way of rent.
We were making little other use of it. For the most
oart though, it lay inert.
The war liquefied the mass and wealth of all
kinds went Into circulation. It came to represent
itself instead of being represented only inadequately
by money.
And we accomplished things that we thought
were impossible. It showed to us, to every progress
ive community to states and municipalities and to
ndividuals what could be done with wealth that even
he future could be made to take part in the great
accomplishments. Hence we have f;reat expenditures
'or good roads. 'for state roads, country roads and
ity streets, for needed public buildings, for business
structures for commercial and industrial tnterprises.
We are now spending more for improvements
than we would have dared to spend but for the war.
We have learned that not only money but wealth in
its primary form must be made to add to wealth; we
see nof that the more paved streets we have the
more good hotels we have, the more handsome busi
ness and residence structures, the more valuable all
these things will become.
If the lives of all the millions who were slain
could be restored, if all the human suffering could
have been averted, the lesson we have learned from
the war would have gone a-great way toward offset
ting the financial cost of it. ' We have learned a betlet
use of wealth.
What we learned was not new. The captains
of industry knew it already; that was what made them
captains of industry. Nearly all men who had thriven
by the exercise of foresight understood something
of the art of making wealth earn its salt, though
they frequently set it at sordid tasks. But now the
secret is out; the whole public knows it and that is
why we are having a new Phoenix.
"You're the second bravest man the war has pro
duced," said General McHale, addressing Private
Gaffney as he was pinning a Congressional Medal of
Honor on his breast. The first, in the opinion of the
general was Sergeant Alvin C. Yorke, Private Guff nay
wounded and single handed, after killing several Ger
mans captured 80 and took them back to the Ameri
can lines. Sergeant Yorke under slightly distressful
circumstances captured 132 Germans. Is this differ
ence of 52 in the number of prisoners a difference in
degrees of bravery of the two captors'.'
Both these men proved their bravery. Each ac
complished all that was set before him to do andt
neither could do more. If Private Gaffney was less
brave than Sergeant Y'orke and to be the second
bravest man he must have been less brave, it was
the fault of the Germans in not having as many men
opposing Private Gaffney as the number with which
they had favored Sergeant Yorke.
It was an unhappy speech of General McHale's.
t was probably not what he meant at all. What he
meant was that the exploit of Private Gaffney so far
is the number of prisoners taken was concerned was
of less volume than that of Sergeant Yorke, a fact
w hich affords no basis for comparison between these
two brave men. And there were deeds, thousands
of them In the war, performed by men who may have
been as brave as either the first or the second bravest
man, as rated by General McHale. Men set out
alone, into the face of almost certain death. There
was none of that excitement of conflict,- that as
sociation of numbers, that gang spirit which makes
men who are not really very brave, forget dangers.
There is a cold bravery the best and purest kind of
bravery. It is upheld by no supporting emotion.
Many a man who is suddenly rushed into great
danger carries himself w ith the Utmost bravery and
performs heroic deeds. After it is all over he won
ders at the things he did and feels that he had acted
under some outward influence. He does not share the
i.;;n!ar opinion of his wn braverv.

Last Stand of the Bolshevists
We have probably witnessed the last stand of
the bolshevists in the northwest. They made one at
Seattle and it failed dismally. They collected their
forces at Winnipeg and had behind them the good
wishes of the "reds" everywhere, those of Phoenix as
well. They had more substantial support from the
supposed headquarters of uolshevism in New York.
The very radical labor element, that element
which labors with jaw and pen professed to regard
the affair as an industrial uprising, knowing at
the same time that it was an I. W. W. "revolution"
engineered and directed by pronounced bolshevists.
just as the Seattle affair had beer..
When the city of Winnipeg was tied up the lead
ers were fools enough to think the "strike" might suc
ceed, and they impudently predicted a soviet govern
ment in that part of the world to be extended all over
the continent. But once the forces of law and order
w ere aroused, the movement was crushed expeditious
ly and the leaders are in the penitentiary facing de
portation or long imprisonment.
Laboringmen who were drawn into it in the be
ginning, thinking it was an industrial movement, got
out of it as quickly as they could. The soldiers who
had come back with a distaste for most things they
had seen and heard in Europe, ranged themselves
on the side of law and order as they bad done at
the outberak, more than a year ago at Vancouver
an more recently at Seattle.
The bolshevists and the I. W. W. haven't much
sense, but they must have a little and must per
ceive the hopelessness of establishing a Russian
regime anywhere in North America.
If the crown prince is possessed of all the in
aninity with which he has been credited, it doesn't
make much difference where he is. But it beats the
Dutch how he got away.
By the simple process of finding no citizen willing
to sign the peace treaty and being unable to con
script anybody for that uncongenial task, the Ger
man government can impose a further delay of the
peace proceedings.
There is one thing in which the supposedly in
harmonious democratic factions of this state are in
beautiful and perfect accord the desirability o be
ing in control of the party.

The Sub-Sea Navy
There is one decision of the peace council that
we may safely predict will never go beyond its pro
nouncement to demand reparation of Germany for
the sinking of the German navy. The navy was
not under the control of the present German gov
ernment. The government had no authority over the
officers and crews w-hich had been left in charge
of the vessels as they lay in British waters. The
British had assumed full responsibility for the safety
of the captured vessels. They were supposed to be
under British guardianship. And then we have not
forgotten that the British wanted to do to the ves
sels the very thing that was done to them to sink
It is now said that the surrender of the ships
had never taken place; that the'vessels were merely
interned. When a ship is interned its restoration
to its owners is always contemplated. But it was never
intended that the German navy would be restored
to Germany. Such a thing was never discussed any
where. Consideration was given to only two even
tualities in connection with the German navy, the
sinking of the ships and their division among the
allies, and it was reported that the representatives
of Great Britain and the United States had agreed
' upon the former.
If reparation is to be made by any nation for
the loss of the ships, it should be made by Great
Britain which entirely on its own motion took charge .
of them, assumed responsibility for them.
Tommy Stalks His Prey And I Follow
Him Into New Adventures
My uniform didn't fit me at all it
hung on me and except for my height,
I did not have the figure of Jane
Lorimer. 1 remembered this with joy as
Tony Cerleis approached me. I pulled
my cap over my ears, and it made my
wig stick out like a mop. I puckered
my lipe into a whistle, added a swagger
to my steps and gave my attention to
my signature book.
"Over there! Over there!" came
sweetly from my rounded lips, tiiought
goodness knows where I got my breath
to make a sound.
And then after all my careful prep
aration my enemy passed me without
bastowing a single glance upon me!
Dr. Hamilton Certeis showed his char
acteristic indifference to an ordinary
girl! And I smiled as 1 thought:
"For once, old dear, you've made n
mistake you'll regret."
I gave Certeis time to turn into the I
alley back of his house, then I hurried
into the drug store and stood at the
window and , watched Certeis slip
through the gate with the secret lock.
"It certainly is a great comfort to
know wh?re you are," 1 remarked to
myself as lie disappeared. "Now, if I
an only locate Tommy, and hang onto
him until his wrath cools, it will be
mighty lucky for both of you."
Syke's window looked down the
alley. I watched the traffic ebb and
flow with vehicles in bunches, as they
were released by the traffic policeman
at the alley's farther end.
Certeis had entered the alley from
Syke's end at a time when it v;i's al
most empty, but hardly had be gone
into the tunnel when a group of deliv
ery wagons whirled into the nta.ow
road from the farther end. And out
from among them stepped Tommy!
Evidently he had "spotted" Certeis and
had followed him home.
And Tommy knew about the secret
nail which opened the tunnel door! I
had told him! And thus it happened
that without an instant's hesitation.
Tommy had disappeared, under the
fountain in pursuit of th'man he had
vowed to kill!
"Murder!" Pbit my lips to keep the
word back; then I started to phone the
oolice: then a new fear seized me.
Even at the moment, Tommy might
have killed his man! And it was not
for me to hand iiim over to the au
thorities. Doubtless after he had disposed of
Certeis, Tommy would deliver himself
up: probablv lie would be acquitted
and yet if "i were called to testify, I
would have to admit that Tommy had
rushed away from the hotel with the
intention of taking Certeis' life and
that it was a deliberate crime and
not an accident.
And Tommy's reputation would be
stained forever as well as his soul!
I dashed down the alley the door
yielded to pressure on the magic nail,
and once more I stood in the blackness
of the cavern and among the pipes of
the fountain. To my left lay the long
tunnel leading to the labyrinth and
the room containing the machine guns,
and the shaft of the secret ladder. To
my right was the short tunnel which
ended in the bolshevik meeting place.
I turned to the left and rushed on
in the dark. I had outlined the plan
of the place to Tommy. In his cold
wrath, he would trail Certeis even to
the top of the ladder. I could imagine
a great puddle of blood spoiling the
gold and blue of the rugs in Certeis'
In frantic haste, and bending slightly
forward, I rushed down the passage.
Suddenly my forehead hit something
with a grand bump. I recoiled, very
much hurt and half dazed.
The passage was blocked by a slid
ing door! I had failed to discover it
the day of my escape from the place.
But it was a barricade to be expected.
U cut off pursuit
My senses cleared and I realized
that since I had not come upon Tommy
in the passage, he must be on the
other side of that door with Certeis!
I no longer feared for Tommy's repu
tation. His life the other side of that door
wasn't worth a penny!
(To Be Continued1!
In March last a case which attracted wide attention came before Justice
Darling, one of the high court judges of England, on appeal
A soldier, on going to the war. had turnedf over to his wife's care $3500,
his life's savings. While the husband was fighting for his country the wife
became infatuated with another man, made presents out of the money to him,
then went to live with her paramour and was posing as his wife when the
husband returned from the war.
The lower court had sentenced the woman to prison for 13 months on a
charge of larceny and the paramour for 12 months for receiving stolen prop
erty. Justice Darling overruled the sentences holding that at the time she dis
posed of the money the legal presumption was that she was "living with" her
husband and therefore she committed no crime.
The other day in Cambridge, England, Lieutenant Francis Wright, M. C,
and his brother took sub-Lieutenant Desmond B. Kinham out into the woods
stripped him, chained him to a tree, tarred and feathered him in what the
British term "American fashion" and then turned him loose.
Lieutent Wright has been summoned before a military court to answei
for his conduct.
He says if Kinahan had been a full sized man he would have thrashed hin
and then shot him but as he is a runt and a coward he and his brother, whe
lost a leg in the war, determined to take the law into their own hands.
A judge who strains the law and defeats the spirit of it brings the lav
into contempt. Who can blame Lieutenant Wright? for taking the law intt
his own hands when one of the leading jurists of the empire determined u
woman and her paramour guiltless on the practically irrelevant fact of the
date of her open blazoning of her unfaithfulness?
All England rang with the echoes of Justice Darling's decision. Now
comes an injured husband a soldier who tars and feathers the destroyer of
his home and for that act he may go to prison or be cashiered.
The law is not justice when a jurist, through a technicality, works in
justice. The judge who decides as did Justice Darling promotes lawlessness
by bringing the law into contempt.
Incidentally, while the British ar eaghast at the method the rights em
ployed to punish Kinahan and they characterize tarring and feathering a
American it is no such thing. It is English and was English centuries befort

Q. What percentage of the human
body is fat? K. L. M.
A. About twenty per cent of a nor
mal body is fat.
Q. Is the question of excessive flesh
a disease. D. Y. G.
A. Only in rare cases. In lower
animals and in savage races nature
stores up food for time of famine by
converting it into fat. This provision
of nature still operates, despite the
lack of the necessity of it, among civ
ilized peoples, and the result is cor
pulence. By substituting fasts for the
famines of old, the flesh can be
brought to normal with no bad effects.

George Washington in 1759.
Q. Who is in charge of the Graves

The Garden of Dinosaurs
Undoubtedly the oddest collection of
statuary in the world is that of life
sized cement images of the dinosaurs,
which Carl Hagenbeck, the famous
collector of wild animal who supplies
most of the zoos and circuses in the
world, has made upon his estate at
As you probably know, the dinosaurs
were a strange race of animals who
inhabited the earth millions of years
ago, before man and the other animals
appeared. Some of them were much
larger than elephants. Some were
harmless, grazing creatures, but others
were terrible carnivorous beasts.
The appearance of the dinosaurs is
known from fossil remains which have
been found, and Mr. Hagenbeck has
had accurate likenesses made and
placed in life-like postures in a park
about the edges of a little lake. If a
man who knew nothing about it were
to come suddenly upon this place on a
moonlight night he would probably

not live in dry countries occasionally
Pink elephants and purple kanga
roos would be nothing to the image of
diplodocus, the largest creature that
ever walked the earth. Mr. Hagen
beck's cement likeness of this animal is
sixty-six feet long, and is seen quietly
grazing in a little glade. Near by a
triceratops. with three horns on its head
and weighing a couple of tons, is. just
emerging from the water, while a ty
rannosaurus a carnivorous brute big
ger than a buffalo is represented in
the act of devouring its prey. There
are thirty of the monsters and more
are to be made.
A statement isued by the democratic national committee asks the countrv
to compare the management of the present war with the way the republicans
managed the war with Spain. That "war" with Spain, in modern language,
would be called nothing-to-report-on-the-western-front.
When asked for interviews, the kaiser tells newspaper men that his atti
