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
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
Wouldn’t it be great if the alleged

Excellent suggestion; but it will have

I-ast Christmas a certain minister

The lady of the house was placed

goose he remarked:

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.
