VOLUME XLIX. Hie Secret of a Superlative Tire The whole question of a super-tire is a matter of principles. For there is nothing exclusive in the industry. No patents, no secret formulas prevent a conscientious maker from build ing the best. , But cc‘ rnd competition modify ideals. The Brunswick idea is to p: v pauecUon’s price and get it. That ha s- b, i the Brunswick policy since 1845. And it ac counts for ti e growing preierence for Brunswick Tires. Motorists expect the utmost from a tire bearing the name of Brunswick and get it. You, too, will be convinced by your first Brunswick, that here is an extraordinary tire, and that more money cannot buy a belter. Better tires of their type are impossible —or better tubes.

Rigorous Mourning. “Germany's week of mourning over the harshness of our pence terms was rigorously observed —nit,” said Major Frederick Palmer, the famous war cor respondent. “There’s a story about the week of mourning from Berlin. A Berllnese assistant theater manager said to the manager: “ ‘ls our burlesque going to observe the week of mourning, boss?’ “‘Rigorously, sir, rigorously,’ the boss replied. “ ‘Close down—is that the Idea?’ said the assistant. “'Close down nothing!’ said the boss. ‘V'e’ll put all the chorus girls In black silk stockings.'"

A veteran of Belleau wood colled upon the board. His left leg gone, he appeared listless and without hope. He sat talking to the adviser, now and then slowly turning a ring on his finger. The adviser, to get the man's confidence, asked to see the ring. The man suddenly became animated. “I made that,” he said. “Hammered It out of silver mvself, and engraved those figures on the outside. Nothing but some playing of mine,” he added. The adviser looked at the ring, noted the engraving, and said: “How would you like to learn en graving?” “Doing this?” said the soldier, fin gering his ring. “Say. Otis ain’t work —lt’s Just play.”’ "Let’s have a try at It,” replied the adviser. The federal board sent the man to learn engraving, and In a few months he qualified for a good Job in a Jew elry store.

What The War Cost. Tacoma, Wash., Sept. 13. —Presi- dent Wilson in his speech here pre sented the following startling figures of the cost of the world war: I teatlis on the field of battle, 7,- 150,200, divided among the principal belligerents as follows: Russia, 1,700,000; (Jermany, 1,- (100,000; France, 1,385,000; Great llritian, 000,000; Austria, 800,000; Italy, 3(11,80U; United States, 50, 300. These losses compare with fewer than 0,000,000 suffered in all the wars in the world from 1703 to 1914. The total cost of the war in dollars was $186,000,000,000. The En tente Allies and the United States spent $123,000,000,000 and Central Powers $63,000,000,000. Pope’s Choir In U. S. The Sistine Choir of the Vatican, possibly the oldest organization of its kind in the world, arrived in New York Tuesday of this week, and thus broke a precedent which has lasted for 1600 years. The American tour of the choir will be the first time since its formation in the fourtli cen tury that the famous body of singers ever has left the precincts of the Vat ican. The singers are 70 in number and range in age from boys of eight years old to men of three score and ten years. They will tour the Unit ed States and Canada. I Out Of Business. Mr. C. W.

UtifiE SENATE 13 ■ HM PEACE Leaders w Forty States, Re* flardiess of Party, b.yn Kinging Appeal TREATY WITIiJU 1 AMENDMENT Sty Every Day Of Delay Puts World In Imminent Herll Of New-War. Point To National Unrest. New York. —(Special.)—Two hundred knd fifty ieau.ag Americans, Repub licans and Ds.iijci'ats representing for ty different slates and every prominent activity have joined m a uon-parlisan effort to bring abo.it Hie a'alilicaUon of tue Peace Treaty "Without amend meat and w.u-.om delay.” Their names are attached to an address to the United States Senate, which was made public today, through the League to Enforce Pe-ce, ui.cr it had been sent to every member ol the Senate. The signers, almost without excep tion, are men and women of national reputation. They include ai.ch promi nent citizens as ex-President Taft, George W. Wickersham, Attorney Gen eral in the lest P.epubiicaii administra tion; A. Lawrence Lowell, president of Harvard; Charles C. Moore, of San Francisco, president of the Panama Exposition; Judge George Gray, ol Wilmington, Del.; President Samuel Gompers, ot the American Fetation of Labor; Harry A. Wheeler, of C'hica go, retiring president of the Chamber of Commerce of ihe United States; Mrs. Carrie Chapman Call, president of the National American Woman Suf frage Association; Cyrus H. K. Curtis, Hie Philadelphia publisher; President Berber J. Grunt, of the Mormon Church, and Spargo. leader of Hie So cialists. who supported the war. The signers declare that every day of delay in ratifying the treaty puls Hie world in “imminent peril of new war.” Their statement follows; In the Senate at Washington, now that the committee on foreign rein tions has reported the treaty, the lines are sharply drawn between the imme diate ratification of the treaty of peace with Germany, and Its amendment with a reassembling of the conference and • reopening of negotiations that would bring great delay and prolonged un certainty in settling the great issues ot the peace. No partisan plea can be made. Party lines are already broken. Standing at a distance from the conflict in the Senate chamber, we plead for immediate ratification with out delay. Our land requires it. A state of nervous strain, tension and nnrest exists manifesting itself in dis turbancea. which in some cases have no self evident connection with the war, but which are, in fact, its after math. The world is put In imminent peril of new wars by the lapse of each •Jay. Dis elisions between us and out former allies are being sown. We firmly believe and solemnly declare that the States and cities in which we dwell desire immediate peace. The waging of war steadied and united the American people. Peace will bring prosperity, and prosperity ooute.it. Delay in the Senate post zoning ratification In this uncertain p-r-iod of nether peace nor war has resulted in Indecision and doubt bred strife and quickened the cupidity ot those who sell the dally necessities -jf life and the fears of those whose daily wage no longer fills the daily market basket. We beseech the Senate to give the (and peace and ceitainty by a ratifies Mon which will not keep ur longer ! n the shadows of possible wars, but give he whole world the light of peace. Reservations in the nature of clarifi ations in the meaning of the treaty, cot inconsistent with its terms, will not require the reopening of the ne gotiations with Germany and with our associates in the war, which we all and e cii united to win. But there is no possibility of doubt that amendment of the treaty, as is now proposed in the Senate Commit tee Ga Foreign Relations, would re quire negotiation and a reopening of all the questions decided at Paris. Months of delay would follow. The perils of the present would become the d idly dangers of the near future. All the doubt engendered would aid the plots for violent revolution in this and other lands, The issues here and elsewhere between capital and labor, the conspiracy of speculator and prof iteer, would all grow and become more perilous. This cannot be. The American peo pie cannot, after a victorious war. permit its government to petition Ger many, which has accepted the treaty, for its consent to changes In the treaty. Yet If the United States should amend .he treaty for its own purpose and policy. Germany would have full right co ask for concessions. Germany has agreed to make no claim in regard tc enemy property seized in this country to an amount ot seven hundred mi! lion dollars. Our recent foe could ask for a reopening of this issue and of the Lusitania claims. It could rals> every question ope. before hoeUl.tles Terms SI.OO in Advance. In regard to submarine warfare and the treatment of its nationals in this coun try. All the provision for our trade In Germany raised by the economic clauses of the treaty, many of them vital to our industries and our (arms, as in dye patents, dye supplies and fertilizers, the working of the Repn'vi tion Commission, which superintends the trade of all with Germany, couid all be brought up by Berlin for read justment by our negotiators, actinu for the United States alone and > longer associated with other victor o '- powers or supported by a victorlpr. American army on the German border Peace* itself, the peace of the world is delayed until ratilicatiou com s And any amendment postpones peuc r . Germany and England aiore of the principal powers have ratified. The other principals necessarily await our action, influential and powerful as we ar* today in the world's cff,,;rs. The ravages of war on more than a scon of fighting fronts are continued by an;, needless delay. Let the Senate give the world peace by ratification without amendment. Even the amendment for which most can be said, the provision in regard to Shantung, will secure nothing winch cannot be gained if China, backed by the powerful advocacy of the United States, addresses itself to the m chin ery for righting international wrongs and meeting just claims creat' d by the league between nations. China, after eighty years of oppressive trea ties and despoiled rights, by which oil the great powers have profited direct ly or indirectly, has for the first time. In his covenant and treaty, the men as and method to secure Justice and to'-' removal of the oppressive economic in terference of stronger nations v.: ■> citizens are within her gates, prelect ed by a long succession of interna tional agreements. Moreover, it should be remembered that the clause regard ing Shantung was made upon the state ment by Japan that she will return the territory to China and therefore, upon that condition, compliance with which promise the league cm require. The peace of the present and the righteousness of the future can be b t secured by the ratification of the cove nant and treaty without amendment. Let the Senate take no action that will give any party to the treaty, and espe cially Germany, ground for maintain ing that the ratification of the United States is not complete and that changes requiring a resumption of conference and negotiations have been made in it.

OWED MUCH TO STEREOSCOPE How Commanders During the Great War Got Information of Vital Importance. The old-fashioned stereoscope played an Important part in the world war. It supplied an angle to photographs, snapped from airplanes, tlint could not he obtained from the ordinary camera lens. Before Us use the pictures all seemed flat, hut the stereoscope added height, and thus steep slopes, that appeared in pic tures like flat ground, were shown in their true characteristics, and the lives of men who would have to cover (he ground in attack were saved. The airplane camera looks directly down on the spot to be photographed, making a picture ns a one-eyed man would see it. A stereoscopic camera, in which the lenses are two and three-quarters Inches apart, would not produce the stereoscopic effect. Pho tographers decided to take pictures 100 yards apart to give a view. Just as a giant, with eyes 100 yards apart, would see It. Those pictures were put on cardboard, and viewed through (he stereoscope. At first a cottage looked like a tower, a bucket like a well, a trench like a canyon, etc. The officers soon learned to translate these eccentricities, and the problem was solved. True pictures, giving just (he exact information desired, were then obtained by the airplane photogra phers. - NO. 28
