that fully 100,000 of them went o\

They wore thrown in as an intern

This pitiful remnant returned

work immediately to organize the r(
of the Jugo-Slavs in Russia. Th
heeame the nucleus of two more cor

was sent from Siberia to commai
them.
Rut by this time the Russian re
olution had taken place and ever
moved so rapidly that within a brl
interval the whole Russian army h
ceased to exist and the Rolshevl
were in control of affairs. The n?
Jugo-Slav divisions were given i
opportunity to fight In Russia. R
they were determined to find t
chance somewhere. In small marc

It was thought at that time that i
theJugo-Slav fighters in Russia h,
rejoined the Allies. Not so. Only a f<
months ago a brief cable dispatch

officers had suddenly appeared in t
Sues Canal on their way to battle
Macedonia. No explanation was gi

As a matter of fact the flghtli
Jugo-Slavs In Macedonia have bei
drawn from the four corners of tl

from South America. The United States
is well represented. All these scat- ^

on j
as The people of the .United States ?
ar have been wholly unconscious of the r
,rg rapidity with which they have ad>ct
vanccd from comparative poverty to
en unequalled affluence, says the Ameri- t
can Review of Reviews. Most people v
in all countries, and through all ages. f
,aj haw lived close to the border lands {
a of famine and epidemic. No great {
n_ i>opuL'ition in all history was ever so ?
ln luxurious as the j>eople of the United
1)C States have been in recent years. s
.j_ There has been an amazing advance ^
j,r in the standards of living: and we j.
should aim to have both town dwell- t
ers and country people live still more j
decently and agreeably in years to j
,rs come. But a high standard of living (
,ai is compatible with simplicity and
he thrift. There are now men living in M

>at was a common thing to sec cabinet
ev ministers, senators and members of
n_ the supreme court going to market In t
the morning, with their baskets, and (
nJ carrying home the supplies that they ^
had frugally purchased. It is not. j
v_ however, a question of returning to v
