U'roy Trihunt-, j The above is just a faint glimpse of j the expense heaped upon the people jof thiri country to maintain the war spirit in a time of profound peace. The country is awakening to the utter folly of maintaining a great standing army and navy, the building of more battle ships. Rev. Hartwell’s last Sunday morning sermon at Viroqua Congrega tional church dealth with this particular phase of official waste. He quoted figures which indicate that the stand ing army and navy expenses of the United States would go far toward supporting universal education in this nation. The waste in foreign coun tries is still more stupendous. Mr. Hartwell said the war spirit is to be deplored He declared that the name of President William H. Taft will stand out boldly in history because of his strong efforts for world peace. He thought this season of “peace on earth good will to men,” was an appropriate time to give expression on this subject. CHANGES ARE TOO FREQUENT No sooner do the deople of Wisconsin become accustomed to one form of bal lot than some faddist commands that they shall have a change, and of course the legislature straightway complies with the command. The latest method is given below by the Galesville Re publican : A bit of politics that was put through the last legislature very quietly and j mysteriously is just coming to light. It is claimed that few members of the legislature knew at the time that such a bill passed. The new law makes a I radical change in the manner of voting ' for president of the United States. The | presidential electors will now be on a I separate ballot. This would seem to j make .he already cumbersome method :if voting all the more confusing. Just ; why it was necessary to provide a sep i urate ballot is not yet plain, but it is quite apparent that it was another piece of political juggling for which Wiscon sin has become famous —or infamous. Dr. Belfield, the sociologist, tells us that the government ought to prevent every married man from having child ren beyond his means to care for them well. That it a fair sample of slush talk that these sociologists load the air with nowadays. Suppose someone should say that the government should compel every man to have as many children as his means will per mit? One would-be as sensible as the other and both are beyond the power of government to prevent or order. Be sides, not a word is said about the wives, and we would like to see the government that could boss the women on either side of this question.—Gover nor Hoard. Wouldn’t it be great if the alleged statesmen of this country would turn in and show that they ARE statesmen instead of acting as wet nurses to the economic ar.d political fads, foibles and follies that promise party or personal advantages?—Hillsboro Sentry. Excellent suggestion; but it will have no impression with the “wet nurses” who make screeching a profession. With enormously increasing expen. c of government in nation and state the people still appear to desire that pro fessional claekers shall furnish them in tellectual and political substance and ideas. Judge liigbee has summoned a grand jury to assemble in La Crosse to take notice of official misconduct and alleged grafting among city officials, the police department in particular. It is the first time a like court of inquiry has ever been convened in that county. The republican national nominating convention for president and vice-pres ident is slated for Chicago, to open June 18. The national committee so decreed at a late meeting in Washing ton. People have cause for rejoicing! Con gress is taking its holiday vacation and there will be no session of Wisconsin’s legislature the present winter. —Horns, tops, flying tops, engines, electric toys, tool chests, sad irons, stoves, dishes, games, post card pro jectors. moving picture machine and nobby horses at 0.

At the dinner table he was placed opposite a goose. The lady of the house was placed on the minister's left. Seeing the goose he remarked: “Shall 1 sit so close to the goose?” f mding his words a bit equivocal, he turned round to the lady, and .-:ud.

Brown was boasting of the fine tur key he had bought for Christmas. “Biggest bird I ever saw; cost me seven-fifty.'’ “That’s nothing to the turkey I had last Christmas." said his friend Jones. “It cost me $150.” “One hundred and fifty dollars’” positively shrieked Brown, in his in credulity. “Yes.” said Jones, bitterly. ‘Turkeys,” said Brown, looking him straight in the eye, “are generally to be bought for a quarter a pound Say yours was a quarter, then it must hare weighed about 630 pounds!” “It only weighed twenty pounds.” said Jones, sadly; "but I bought it alive and triad to kill it myself. It flew all over the house first and did $l5O worth of damage.” THE FIRST PRESENTS. The giving of Christ-. ' mas presents was L \ first introduced by I the early Romans. They exchanged gifts freely, but in compli- Ciy^——An/ a,lce with a sumptu- Ny V ary law they were never allowed to give anything very elaborate. The re ceiver of a present which was judged too expensive had to offer it up for auction, when it was knocked down to the highest bidder, and the money appropriated by the national treasurer of the period Consequently, sltho-'gh the Romans continued to distribute their presents in great numbers, they had to contine their offerings to such trifles as jars of olives, napkins, jel lied fishes, boxes of toothpicks, can dies, cloaks and sweetmeats.
