In at least one state (Ohio) the medical men have agreed to share fees with doctors who go to the front. Thus, if Dr. Brown goes to the front and Dr. Smith stays home, Smith forwards to Brown half of any i'oes ^'e rriay' get for treating Brown's patients in Brown's absence. The medical profession is filled with traditions of heroic and unself ish action, but there is nothing that quite matches this for broad gauge human goodness on such a large scale. We have to thank the war for show ing up in the human race an im measurable amount of lofty idealism and willingness to serve and sacri flee that ordinarily ,^e,yould not sus pect was there. We hope many Will follow where these doctors lead. Why is a potato bug? ers want to know. War garden FUNNELS TO THE ENEMY. The Germans, before America en tered the war, must often have laugh ed at England and France. Since we entered the war, they must often have laughed at us. For in Holland, Denmark, Norway, Sweden and Swlt zerland they have had perfect fun iji nels through which our products have poured into Germany* rendering of no avill"ftatt of the British sea blockade of German ports and discounting in part our newly declared hostility to the country of the kaiser. Some of the things Germany need ed most to keep it from starvation, to keep up its munitions supply and clothe its troops, have been obtained from this country. They have been secured through the neutral funnels. Even a casual study of the exports of this country to the neutrals close to Germany will reveal the facts with startling clearness. For instance, Denmark in 1913 took 415,479 bushels of our wheat and in 1915 took 2,754,746—nearly seven times as much. Holland took 14,832, 000 in 1913 and in 1915 took 31,551, 992—more than double. In 1913 Denmark took 108,515 bush els of our rye. In 1916 she took 2,047,562—nearly 20 times as much. In 1913 Holland took 6,788 pounds of brass in bars, plates and sheets. In 1916 it took 1,950,943—over 250 times as much. In 1913 Sweden took 9,080,914 pounds of our copper. In 1915 she took 34,545,501—nearly four times as much. In 1913 Switzerland tok 2,699 pounds of leather. In 1916 she took 1,553,936, and all other neutrals took similar large quantities. In 1913 Norway took $4,743 worth of miscellaneous chemicals. In 1916 she took $350,806 worth. The figures cited for the selected individual countries are typical of all the3e neutrals. Allowing for the fact that these countries were cut off from Russian and Argentine wheat, from Russian leather, from German chem icals and from European brass and copper supplies, allowing for the fact that they, therefore, turned to Amer ica to make up their deficit—there still remains so large an increase in 'ifaLX .-'•yl&M/.. -I their imports as to preclude the be lief that all they have bought within the past three years has been for home consumption. The conviction will not down that they have acted as purchasing agents for Germany. To that extent these neutrals were not neutral. They were assistants to Germany. They helped her cir cumvent the blockade. They sneaked to her products that were contraeand of war. They made use of the war by piling up their war profits. And that is where the new exports council appointed by President Wil son under the espionage bill will be of enormous service to the cause of America and her allies against Ger many. Its first job will be to stop the leak to the enemy. Lens means coal to the Allies and coal means life. CAN BE GENEROUS. In Columbus, O., the blind mother of a soldier with Pershing was brought before the city council for begging in defiance of a newly adopt ed ordinance. Blind mothers of soldiers should not be permitted to beg. The authorities should see that all such practices are stopped at once. Blind mothers of soldiers should be well cared for by the community, so they will not need to beg! This is a problem America must face at once. So far no adequate provision has been made for those the soldiers leave behind. Of course, in the new national ar my there will be few taken who have dependents, but there now are in ser vice many who have left dear ones behind who must bo cared for. America cannot afford to be other than justly generous with the moth ers and wives and children of sol diers. No soldier ought to have to face death in France knowing dear ones are in poverty at home. That is not what this great democracy wants. Let us hope the case of this blind mother in Columbus will arouse the nation to making proper arrange ments for such cases. 'Blind mothers of soldiers should bp ^jipt from begging by abolishing the/fiee^. for begging. Gi^e#& just naturally is slipping into the war now that the sand is off the track. WELLS HAS VISION. There TS.lid' moire' Intepfeindent writ er today than the Englishman, H. G. Wells. Every time he takes his pen in hand he writes something that stimulates to thought, if not. to bitter discussion: Just at present a novel of jjtfs is being issued in serial form tlWhs bound to provoke much argu mttjfcon both sides of the Atlantic. It. "will do so especially in ^England, Where, despite its essential democ racv, the -country still retains the gilded figurehead of kingship and where, despite religkus tolerance, the established church still retains its great power and privileges. For Wells is proclaiming in this new piece of fiction that out of this war will come an era of republics and an age of religion that will tran scend the narrow confines of creed. Wells tried to project himself into space and view this, our world, from afar. In this frame of mind he is optimist rather than pessimist. He sees an end to kings and thrones. No more will a few dynasts be able to say whether the world shall be plung ed into bloody war or remain in bless ed peace. The peoples will take unto themselves the power and the govern ment. In the same way, he has a vision of what is coming in the religious field. There will not be less belief in God, but more. However, he ad vances the theory that the new belief in God will not allow itself to be eon fined by sects and creeds. It will be something bigger, something broader, something more tolerant, something with more of the spirit of the Christ in it than anything we have known since Jesus ceased to preach in the Holy Land. Coming from a man who was once rated as an agnostic, coming from a man stirred to his deeps by the awful world-tragedy of which he is an un happy witness, this message is sure to be the theme of many an angry sermon. But Wells will be happy. He will have stirred men to think and that after all is the greatest duty of the writer who cares more about prog ress of the world than the size of his own bank account. What the governor of South Caro lina said to the governor of North Carolina will be nothing to what Per shing will say to the kaiser when he bags that old scalawag. BICYCLE ORDINANCE. City ordinances prohibit the use of sidewalks by cyclists. Those riding wheels must not use the sidewalks. Non-compliance with this notice will result in prosecution by the city.

The wonder of the thing, however, is not in mere numbers. Never before has any business ac quired such volume in such a com paratively short time. Twenty years ago the automobile was practically unknown. A few lit tle one cylinder cars, capable of trav eling about as fast as a horse were curiosities in seme cities then. Now automobiles go everywhere. They climb mountains pjVer rfkrrow trails, they fqrd streams and carry civilisation wi|h |tyem. different stations, as well as to travel between camps. These cars have made an enviable record for themselves in every way. They have been averaging about 21 miles to a gallon of gasoline and from 500 to COO miles on a gallon of oil.
