Commenting very optimistically, on the spiritual element in the economic world, Commerce and Finance, has this to say: "By faith Columbus voyaged across the un known waters of the western ocean to discover the continent that we have inherited by faith our forefathers developed it and established here-a government conceived in liberty and dedicated to the proposition that all rtien are created equal by faith we undertook and are successfully prosecut ing a great war to secure a world-wide acceptance of that proposition,, and by faith the seemingly impossible has been accomplished in mobilizing the men and raising the money necessary for that war. "And now as we seem measurably near the end of the struggle there are to be heard the voices of those who predict that a long period of economic depression will follow its successful termination. "They say that wages and prices must decline, that great overproduction will ensue, that want and distress will be general and that the costs of the war of which the present excitement has made us almost oblivious will have to be finally met amidst great travail." How can peace possibly bring upon us such dis asters as low wages and great overproduction? It is true that we will be paying the cost of this war for a good many years to come, but peace will find practically all the foreign civilized world short of everything, with the United States, the great producer and provider, equipped as no other nation, with ships. This, to say nothing of the fact that this country, as the great creditor nation, will be drawing interest on billions of loaned money, directly or indirectly. During our war period investment in new en terprises of ordinary character is almost at a standstill. Tens of thousands of factories and other industries have been altered for and de voted to production of war material. Peace means that these businesses must be changed back to pro Suction of peace necessaries, at a time when the whole world will be demanding such as never before in all human history. How is overproduc tion possible? What possible grounds for reduc tion in wages? Moreover, while the purchasing power of the American dollar is now low and may further de cline, the whole American people is learning to r:ake that dollar go farther. The folks are con scientiously studying their dollar, at the dinner table, at the shop counter, everywhere.^ However, scratch a pessimist deep enough and you'll always find a materialist. Nothing save faith, hope and spiritual inspiration has lifted us from the landing of Columbus' starving, mutinous crew to our position as the greatest of nations, materially, and a people so glorious, spiritually, that it gives its lives and its wealth without stint that- people all over the earth may be free, be fed and have a chance to be happy and prosperous as God Almighty intended. We bleed, we sacrifice, we mourn, in this war, but the nation's peace vision is aglow with all the colors of the Almighty's beneficience, and the pes simists, the materialists who groan over depres sion in the future, over low wages and too much of food and clothes, are but as the grasshopper, the moth and the gnat. REFORMING LANDLORDS. New York landlords, who have shown an almost Hunnish dislike of babies, forbidding them the shelter of apartment-house roofs, are about to be reformed. In future the landlord may be required to show as much enthusiasm over the little dears as if he were a political candidate. Any public display of aversion to children—any tendency to deny children bed and board in the1 most exclusive apartments may cost him $500 or five days in jail! Aldermna Clarence Palitz of the New York city council has presented a resolution which, if adopted, would have the law on every apartment house owner who bprs tenants because the family includes children. But the well merited public scorn which has been visited upon'landlords must be extended to the nmi'source of the "no children" rule for apart- Editor CHICAGO, Marqwtto B,uu 14.00 It .... 2.00 .... 1.00 .95.00 2.50 1.25 16.00 8.00 «°l 50 I If 1 ment houses—the "exclusive" tenants who prefer large incomes to large families. Personally, the average landlord has no particu lar objection to children—he may even indulge in a few of his own, wisely established in a subur ban residence. But he gets his living by renting his apartment house—and if he wishes it to be tenanted by persons who can pay high rent with pleasing regularity he must cater to the taste of such tenants. Exclusive tenants are dead set against children. They won't be bothered with them themselves and certainly they will not en dure the presence of the neighbor's children. The child hating landlord is but the agent of the "exclusive" tenant. When babies become fash ionable it may be discovered that landlords are as human as anybody! won't be a Santaless Christmas if we get an earlv start on ourselves.

That's certainly putting them on an equal basis with men. Some folks feel about this bell-ringing, whistle blowing part of the loan campaign as they do about organ grinders. They buy another bond to hush 'em up quicker. I WITH THE EDITORS YEA BO!

UP TO THE FARMERS Will the farmers of this state who openly avow that they pay eighty percent of the taxes vote for the constitution to remove the debt limit and saddle their farms with state bonds grievious to be borne? Read those amendments over in quiet moments before you vote for them.—Hannah Moon. sj« PACIFIST DEBS REAPS WHAT HE SOWED. The case of Debs, foremost socialist of this country and a one time candidate for the presi dency, sentenced to ten years in the penitentiary as a war obstructionist, emphasizes this country is in deadly earnest in prosecuting the war and will stand for no monkeying by any person or per sons. Debs is an intelligent man and deserves all he got for prostituting his efforts and talents in Germany's behalf, for that is the net result of pacifism of any description. The American who isn't for war to the knife and knife to the hilt is absolutely open to the suspicion of pro-Germanism in his heart.—Parshall Leader. RADICAL AND TORY. The New York Evening Post contributes an apt sentence that completely describes a vast field: "There is a folly of impatient radicalism, just as there is a stupidity of dogmatic negatives on all innovations." That epitomizes the whole field of political, social and economic thought. John Stuart Mill put the same thought in these words "The future of mankind will be gravely imperiled if ^reat questions are left to be fought out between ignorant change and ignorant oppo sition to change." In that sentence there is a world of good advice applying to the I. W. W., the Townley Nonpartisan league, Roosevelt, Lodge, Jhe Socialists, Bolshevists everywhere and all Tories and Bourbons—but it is advice of especial significance to all the res.t of us because the point of it is to beware of those who champion "ignorant change" and those who represent "ignorant oppo sition to change." Impatient radicalism wants to fix everything up over night, ignoring the fact, which all history teaches, that human progress is always a thing of slow and painful experiment and patient growth, little by little. Dogmatic toryism wants nothing changed, now or ever. Russia has furnished vivid examples of both.J and its examples on both sides have their faithful] parallels in this and all countries. I The czardom resisted all changes, so it collapsed and fell into the N murk of* oblivion, its passing marked by fire and smoke and ruin. Bolshevism wanted everything on earth changed at once and it accomplished only the ruin of Russia. Dogmatic toryism gains strength when Bol shevism becomes menacing, because the timid fly to its standard. Bolshevism gains strength- when toryism is in power, because the excesses of conservatism drive thousands to radicalism. The Bolsheviki, the I. W. W., the Townleyites, represent the one and toryism, representing the other, is the best friend of Bolshevism every where, in all places and in all times, because its tyranny breeds radicalism. The ordinary citizen, hopeful of progress, hating tyranny but of no mind to burn down the house to kill the rats, will do well to beware both im patient radicalism and dogmatic toryism.—Duluth Herald.

Gil more is now, in happy possession of one of the street posters. originally used in recruiting the-79th Cameron Highlanders of Canada, one of the regiments of the "Ladies of Hell" who have taught the Germans one lesson in manners. It is said that although Germans -'have always shown con tempt for women, yet they have learn ed' to make way for "the l^adies of Hell" and have a wholesome respect for them. For this reason the poster is of considerable interest, as well as from the fact that it is printed in Gaelic, the first language of culture in Britain. In that beautifully ex pressive language there was written a great body of prose and poetic liter ature while still the Anges and Sax one and the Northmen were unlet tered barbarian pagans making their piratical forays on the east coast of Britain. And this strong, persistent,, courageous and progressive race, the aelic, is still in the forefront in the struggle" for civilization and culture iind all the fine things in the world. So this Cameron pcfster is of inter est to all who hold dear the impond erable but precious things of human ity, as well as of special interset to the "Camaronaich Ghaidhealach na \Pan-Rhiginn." It is wreathed with a long list pi the famous .battles and campaigns in which the Camerons have fought from the time of the Na poleonic wars to the time when it was issued at the beginning of the Ger man war. Since that time, during the Itist four years, the* Camerons have added many more well fought battles and campaigns. The poster has been framed and hangs on the wall of the museum of the State Historical society. BUY W. 8. LanUmi Caum a Large Number »f Fires on Farm* Never Set Them on the Floor But Hang Them on Strong Hooka or Wirea. By P. Q. HOLDEN. VEItTURNED lanterns cause more farm fires than any other one thing, according to the stn sties of underwriting associations. The days are now getting shorter, the evenlng9 longer, and the danger of, fires from' lanterns will be in creased. Those of us who depend upon a* Inn tern to furnish us light while we are at work* in barn, cow shed, or other outbuilding, should take a little time right now to provide ourselves with a •few safeguards which will dftninish, if not entirely remove, all danger of fire from this source. In every pai-t of the barn where we need a light \Ve should place strong hooks upon which we can hang the lantern while we are at work. We should not trust old or rusty noils, many of them perhaps slanting the wrong way. These nails often break or pull out, or tjie ball slips off. As a result, the lantern falls to the floor, upsets, the oil runs out, catches fire. Perhaps there Is straw or hay scatter ed about, and before we can dp any thingN to prevent a bad. blaze, the en tire building is on fire. A convenient and safe way to light the various stalls in the cow barn is to stretch a good strong wire, family fastened, at the right height Wehlnd the stalls upon which the lantern may be slid from stall to stall. Whitewash, liberally applied to the stalls, inside walls and ceiling, will greatly brighten the interior of the barn and we will not need to handle the lantern as much as we otherwise would. Whitewash also will sweeten the atmosphere, will destroy vermin, is sanitary. Never set a lantern on the floor. It is sure to be overturned, sooner or later. Never take a lantern into the hay loft. Never trust a small child or unusually awkward person to carry a lighted lantern into a building. Nev er fill a lantern in a barn or shed and never fill it whll^ it is lit. Of course we should always light a lantern out side the barn if possible. If we can't do that, we should be very careful. what we do with the match. Be sure it is not burning when we cast It aside and, even though it is out, do not throw it into hay, straw, or any inflammable material. And always have fire extinguishers handy—both In the house and In the barn. BUY W. 5. Cheerful Man Always in Demand.' Give us, O give us, the man who elngs at his work!
