A ND comes tomorrow, All Fool's Day, and the peculiar brand of American humor will be displayed all over this broad land by tho revival of two classic All Fool's Day Jokes. On a thousand sidewalks will rest a thousand appar ently fat wallets, presumably dropped by some fussy old gentlemen in taking out his handkerchief. But If one stoops to gather It In', It will move off with a Jerk as a thing of life. Perhaps a crpwd of boys behind a fence or ledge will laugh and shout as they re^et their trap for another victim. On a thousand sidewalks, too, on this eventful day, some Innocent-looking paper boxes will recline. Just In the way of passing pedestrians. But when they (there Is an inborn desire to kick a box) rest their toes against the paper shell, backed by the force of a violent kick. Oh. who would have thought that there was a brick of regulation size concealed by the pasteboard I That is American humor as It Is. Critics may make the most of It. Of coui there will be April Fool parties, where button molds will be covered with chocolate, pill boxes filled with salt and teed as small cakes, marshmallows dipped In quinine and candles loaded with red pepper, to say nothing of the thousands of explosive cigars that will be generously distributed on that day. In France All Fool's Day Is called 'Poisson d'Avrll," meaning "fish of April," signifying that one Is easily caught. And It must be said that probably there are as many fish In tho sea a* ever were caught, and the first of the month will prove It. FOR WAR PURPOSES. N the map of the world Is a speck about the size of a dime called Greece. It's a lovely Utile country on • the whole; It has contributed some mighty lino sons lo Delaware; but, politically—well, you had- belter paint that speck black. They who rule Greece are fixing up the government finances for another fiscal year. The expenditures as they ligure them will be something like three hundred and ten millions of dollars for the twelve months, which Is about one-third the total ex penditures of the big United States Government before the war. o The said Greek rulers expect to be able to raise much less than one hundred millions hy taxation. Consequently they Intend to borrow the remaining two hundred and twenty-five millions or thereabouts. Why borrow? Why not bring the expenditures down to the sum they can raise by taxation? Oh, because that would spoil the military plans of the aforesaid rulers. They propose that two-thirds of tho expenditures, or about two hundred millions, shall be spent on the Greek army and navy I It Is more than vexatious. The world went through a war that was to put an end lo all war In this world, and here Is a little speck of a nation borrowing tons of money to keep up a big army and navy. Tho Greek plans bode no good for the Balkans, the cockpit of Europe. If Greece Is doing this thing, so Is Serbian Jugo-Slavla, so is Rumania and so Is Bulgaria. And pretty soon there'll ■be a eiop of thunder—then the deluge again. CLEAN-UP. T HESE are the days when as Individuals and com munities work should be begun to make "tho homo town" from an appearance standpoint a better place In which to live. The field Is large enough, both in Wil mington and the smaller Delaware communities lo merit rather close attention. If all whuld begin the clean up movement on the home premises much would be accomplished. Clear out the litter of winter. Glean up the yards of rubbish. Empty the cans. Assemble all of that stuff In one spot from which It can be easily removed. Agitate against the unsightly MU board. It has little real reason for Us existence as an advertising medium. Man can shout as loud, and much more effectively, in the columns of his home town newspaper and at less expense. usually cover up dirt and Utter and rubbish on vacant property. There arc sanitary reasons, too, why It should be abandoned. One should do what one can to assist In cleaning up and clearing up the waste places. The vacant lot Is a sanitary menace lo the community. So are low places.» They are mosquito breeders. They should be tilled. ' Use a Utile paint on the house, barn or fence. It works wonders In appearance and It In creases by many fold the cost of the paint In value if you desire lo sell. Rake the lawn at the first opportunity. New grass does belter after such a tickling. Clean streets, clean homes, clean yards, trimmed frees —all add to the impression a visitor gets of a town. Li-Ts hope that visitors to our town sec It at Us best this spring. Bill boai Trim the trees. SHE IS JOY. C ORPULENT women are truly tho "fat of the land." Macklyn Arbuokle, an actor, made famous ' nobody loves a fat man." But they do. And more than ever docs everybody love a fat woman. She Is Joy, and Laughter, and Cheerfulness and Optimism all rolled up Into a mountainous mass of happily undulating flesh. One of them had recently attended a movie comic in which "Fatty" Arbuckle portrayed the part of a fireman. No doubt she enjoyed the show. And It was better than a movie treat to hear her describe the fun after she reached home. She hoo-hooed and ha-hahed, and bent and twisted and shook with unconflned mirth, her chair the meanwhile creaking as if ready to give up the ghost because of the weight thrust upon It. Perspiration rolled down her face. Her Joy and her laughter were contagious. Why, the first thing that known the whole audience at her house was visualizing what the fat woman saw at tho picture show, and with her was laughing until it wag holding its sides. A fat woman Is always the life of the party. As good as gold, as solid as Gibraltar, as joyous as Peter Pan, she : sure enjoys life.

N'E nnrt a quarter million women In the British Isles are expected to leave the homeland to go to the British colonies. The Salvation Army Is aiding the move ment. There 1» a great excess of women over men In Britain. This has been accentuated by the war. Spinster hood or emigration Is the choice these women have. A great many of thenj are choosing emigration. They are not going—like the women In the early days of American colonization—to be put up at auction as brides for the settlers. They are not going—like the Japanese picture brides of today—to meet men already their husbands^ Not many of them are going for the conscious reason that they want husbands. But that Is the real underlying reason. It Is the funda mental urge for mating that will take these women over seas. And the Salvation Army Is proud of Its job. "We offer no apology for active propaganda designed to pro cure a better distribution of the sexes," says the com missioner of the army engaged In this work. "One of the biggest afler-the-war tasks assigned the Salvation Army In Britain Is to stimulate emigration of women and direct it to those colonies In the British Emplrertvhere there are more men than women." \ For the exceptional woman, a career may take the place of wife-hood and motherhood; for the great ma jority of women, thanks to the primal urge of evolu tionary tendencies, to want and seek a mate Is as neces sary to her own nature as It Is to the welfare of the race. q MOVIES IN HISTORY. VERY moving picture Is a contribution, for the benefit of posterity, to the history of our time. Its manners, Its customs, Its thoughts, Its virtues and Its follies. To tho Wilmington schoolboy of the year 1905 history will not bo merely something to be memorized out of books. History will be visualized and made real for him by the moving pictures that are being made now. The people of our lime will not be mere history book ghosts to this boy, but living creatures who smile at him and walk and play and love and hate and work and eat. If only wo had tpday moving pictures of the times of Washington and Lincoln I Imagine a Fourth of July celebration with moving pictures of the signing of the E Declaration I The historical value of moving picture plays will be The 1020 ■-os great as that of movies of current events, photoplay exhibited In the year 1295 will servo as an exposition of the social life and manners of this period. And. despite Us faults, the present generation will make a fairly good showing when It appears In the movies before posterity In 1985 and thereabouts. The schoolboys of that time may laugh at some of the of their ancestors, but. In tho main, they will agree ways that they were a pretty good sort at that. TALK IN YOUR SLEEP. « fedn'T worry any more about your habit of con JN versing with yourself after you have drifted on Into slumberland, Mr. Delaware Man. What the wife hears may bother her some, but—ac cording to Judge George Fred Rush, of Chicago—you should worry I *Sk For what tho wife hears of your sleep talk cannot be used as evidence In court. "What a person may say while dreaming may be the exact opposite of what he may say or think In actual consciousness," ruled Judge Rush In Striking out the She had testified her evidence of Mrs. W. H. Valias, husband had talked of his stenographer while he was asleep. Also, there Is something of a suggestion for wives In the Judge's ruling»— Don't bellcvé all you hear, even though it Is your hus band talking in his sleep. It may not bo true after all. HUSBAND WANTED. ä NB of the reasons, perhaps, why Congress does so little for Delaware and the other States 1^ because It Is asked to do so many things. A congressman Is elected to pass laws for the nation. That Is theory. In fad he is elected to do something else, If you'belleve the mountains of letters he gets. Just recently Congressman Dave O'Connell, of Brooklyn. N. Y., got this In his morning mall: "Dear Congressman—Don't forget X am a widow and If there Is any single man now on your list don't forget me." Now how in the world Is a congressman going to keep his mind on taxes and bonuses, and tariffs. If he has to be substituting for Dan Cupid? MINORITY WINS. T HE South Dakota primaries gave to Wood (approxi mately) 28,000 votes. His Republican competitors, Johnson and Lowden, re ceived more than 45,000 votes. Thus Wood, at best, Is only a 37 per cent, choice. Nothing to crow about, Is there? Excepting that Wood gets the delegates. Dutch advices announce that the former Kaiser of Germany Is peeved by the guard that Is kept over him. There are millions of Europeans vvho.Mn the dark days of the war, were peeved by the guards which the Kaiser placed over them. Turn about Is fair play, even In the of a dethroned Hun autocrat I case Doubtless you have noticed that there have been no In formal meetings of the cabinet lately.

WASHINGTON, March 31.—Although some degree of uncertainty still oh- • tains as to what will happen to the peace treaty Involving the league cove- | .... ..... nant, It has at last becomo entirely plain that this country Is not going to ! take upon Itself the vast obligmallonH j of Article 10 to protect the boundary I lines and political independence of [ other nations at the instance of the j league government. This much is fully assured as the re suit of the long and bitter contre versy In the Senate and the long and bitter controversy throughout the country. Nothing whlcb-will happen to | the treaty at the eleventh hour or the : last minute or later on will change this hlghly important fact. In the long months through which the treaty Hus been debuted in the Sen- i ate and discussed In the country it has been difficult at times to see what would come of it all. Many have been ; Iinpatient over the delay and have said i ne Criticism of the Senate for not acting quickly ha» been superabundant. ; But a great change has come over ! Ihlngs, lias oomc over the country, I since the treaty was first sent to the I Senate by the President, ami it was made known that he desired and ex pected Its ratification without tho crossing of a "l" or the dotting of an 'i" ai that time it was fn-iiv nre d oted in administrative quarters that the Senate would be driven to the early ralillcatlon of the treaty In the form the President wanted It. In fact, tills was considered so well settled In admin Islratlon Dlrcles that there was muoU | talk about who would nil this place league arrangement, and there was a small army of aspirants for such places, t The Idea that the Senate backed hy the preponderant sentiment of America j might revolt and might refuse to accept i the plan of Mr. Wilson to underwrite I the obligations of Article 10 was laughed at | Now, what Is the situation? Not i only Is there to be at this time no i ratification of Article Id with Its extra-| ordinary obligation In the form Mr. ! Wilson has Insisted It be ratified, but it Is as certain as anything can be In i legislative, political and diplomatic af- . fairs that It never will be ratified in As the Senate has gone ahead discussing the wearing and Im- | port of Article 10 along with other parts of the treaty, public feeling against that article has gradually mus »«reft in increasing force. The best evidence on this point la the vote In the Senate to adopt an Americanized reservation to Article Id. This vole was 56 to 26 In favor of the nservaùon or more than iwo to one.

The trend of the letters and newspaper comments which Senators are receiving has long made It plan that the country does not want to saddle Itself with Artcle 10 unchanged The President has In Effect declared his purpose to carry into the campaign the peace treaty Issue. Tt,ls meRn8 that, if he carries out his purpose he will urge the country to endorse Art! clc 10 and the position he has taken with respect to It. It means that he will ask the country in effect not to al low It to be written down in black and white in troops and ships shall not he sent to tight abroad unless Congress first says they shall be sent, The President may go to the coun try' on this question, but it is begin nlng now to be real zed here that If he does he will b< going to the country on an issue that has been settled. The Senalo has refused to enter Into the un restricted obligations of Article 10 and public feeling is growing less and less in favor of this country becoming en tangled in those obligations. If there is a b' 8 t vole on the matter next No vember, as the President seems to want, Article iO In the form he desires it win he left stranded higher even than It is now. There are unmistakable signs and symptoms that the country day by day is getting more and more away from the Idea of tyln ,nv obiigati.ui I : write the raly of Europe. One plain reason for this is the constantly increasing Indication that Europe, seething with unrest and turmoil. Is getting ready for new wars instead of preparing for the reign of peace. The American people percel/ve this and their common sense tells them to hold aloof. It * s n °t wthout reason that William Bryan tells Ms party It would be "suicidal" to go before the country on the issue of Article 10 unchanged advocating the underlying Idea of that article. Mr Bryan, whatever else may be said of him has had plenty of op portunlty to find out where the public stands when It Is proposed to send Amcrcan troops and warships .to fight ,lo Europe without the express authority of Congress given n advance.
