FRIDAY EVENING, MARCH 25, 1»21. BG9R6DOU/6 CASE AGAIN. The Bergdoll case comes to the front again through $ dlepa.tchea indicating that it is being given careful study by the war department at Washington. Complicated as it is, it appears that there may be a possibility of its solu etion in a. manner consistent with plain right and justice. Bergdoll, convicted of evading the draft, and een |ten:ed and imprisoned in spite of the expenditure of vast sums of money in his defense, escaped under circum stances which have never been satisfactorily explained, made his way to Canada, and. by means of falsified I: passports, made his way to Germany, where he is said to shave bccome naturalized as a citizen of that country. An unsuccessful effort by unauthorized Americans to ab duct him resulted in the imprisonment of his would-be abductors. What the situation would have been had the abductors succeeded in their attempt we do not know, ®but, while meriting censure just in proportion an their j, methods were illegal, they are entitled to hearty coromen datlon for their excellent intentions. Now a new angle of the case appears. The United States is still at war with Germany, and can enter into ono ordinary negotiations with her. But Bergdoll made 8 his way into Germany by the use of a forged British j,' passport. Britain is not at war with Germany, and she can require an accounting for the improper use of her passport. It may be that Bergdoll may yet be demanded l„' 1 from Germany for this offenoe, and that, once in poso 't j. si on of the British authorities, he may be surrendered to jithe United States. For all of which let us pray. IN THE LONG AGO. A paragraph in the ''Thirty-five Tears Ago" column makes mention of the fact that as long ago as 1886 a co-operative purchasing society was organized by farm era living in the vicinity of Ardoch. and among the names of the organisers appears that of J. W. Scott, ot Gllby. Because of several articles which he has written for The Herald recently Mr. Scott has been subjected to con siderable hammering, and he has bees charged with the commission of ma.ny sins. Scott himself will admit that hebas been a sinner, but he rather resents the sugges tion that he has not been a farmer, or thst he has been opposed to co-operation among the farmers. He was farming in Grand Forks county thirty-five yoars ago, and at that time was interesting himself in co operative work. He has continued both forms of activity until the present day, his farming, on the whole, having proven more successful than most of his co-operative ventures. He is still farming, and this year he intends to crop, every acre that he can get seeded, less what he needs for pasture and other purposes. IS IT ME? Tbe Herald's chance reference the other day to tbe tact that on one occasion President Wilson used the ex pression, "It is me," has brought forth interesting com ment from two correspondents, Messrs. Baker and Pugh, the former citing illustrations of the use of this form by eminent writers, and the latter citing scholastic authority in its defense. The Herald's reference was merely to the tact that even presidents occasionally make verbal slips, and other While they are all interesting, some of Mr. Early's examples scarcely apply, as they represent, not the writer himself, but the creatures of his imagination! some "of whom were not supposed to speak grammatically. Neither is the fact that a writer has used a given form onee, or occasionally, evidence that he approved it. The example, may be merely one of carelessness. We must take our derivations, too, with some dis cretion. Time and custom work strange things with lan guage. Some w/rds have become obsolete, and others are used in a sense exactly contrary to the original one but it is the modern, and not the ancient usage that governs. The King James translation of the Bible was the product of the finest scholarship of its day, but we have departed from many of its forms of expression, and these are no longer accepted as correct. However,'The Herald hopes that it will not be un derstood to have been trying to pick flaws in presidential English. Whatever the weight of authority may be with reference to the forms mentioned, the thought was merely to point out that presidents, like the rest of us, are only human, which is a very comforting thought. "SIMMER FAM/OW AND FIGHT." "Bummer fallow and fight" is the slogan now csrrlsd }by many of the Nonpartisan League papers. AltlUBgh the spirit In which it originated is not commendable it is a pretty good slogan. The theory of the originators seems to be that the farmers of North Dakota should cut down their srop acre •age, or cat out the crops altogether, let their land lis fal low. and devote their time to flgbtlng the political battles of Townley. Lemke, et al. The Implication is that It thay raise just a little wheat they will get as much for it as they would for a lot. if they raised a lot, hsncs they .might just as well raise the little. The prospect of as much money for a small crop as for a big one la held out by the same people who urged .the tanners to refuse $2.60 a bushel for their wheat last tall and hold it for $S.00. A good many farmers were simple enough to take that advice. Some of them are still holding their wheat. Some have sold it tor $1.50. of the Socialist statisticians have been fond ot figuring oat tbe loss to the farmers of North Dakota eaus -ad by the machinations ot the grain exchanges. By mak ing an aoroprlate allowance for manure, lust to round out figures. tbM experts have arrived at a total ot tifty tlve million dollars and some odd cents. That is quite a lot- But it may he interesting tq estimate loss of another [character.

She had eluding our most exact writers, for there is probably no writer in whose pages there cannot be found departures from accepted forms if the search be made in a captious and critical spirit. DOWN ACRKAGE. The problem of ^acreage works itself out in the long run almost automatically. Organised effort to reduce acreage mar have some influence, but that influence is Ukely to be bat temporary. The reaction of the individual to tbe economic influence is much more potent. Down south there is a good deal of talk of restriction of cotton acreage. Probably the acreage devoted to this crop will be materially reduced. Bat whatever reduction there is will be more in response to business conditions surrounding the industry than to the adoption of resolu tions, or anything eleeof the sort. A great deal of cotton land ot the south has been worked in the most haphasard and slipshod manner, and literally cropped to death. On vast tracts which have been cropped wastefully and negligently tor years it 'has bo come impossible, by a continuance of these methods, to produce cotton at a profit even at such enormous prices as prevailed during the war. At present prices continuance of these methods would mean bankruptcy. Long before the war the result of the farming prac tices in vogue was apparent to those who have interested themselves in the subject, and there was. a decided move ment in the direction ot a change of methods. Rotation of crops, more intensive cultivation, and conservation of fertility were urged earnestly, and, there was evidence of a decided tendency to adopt more modern methods. The war period brought high prices, and doubtless Interrupted the development of real farming in the southern field. People raise cotton, just as they engage in other lines of business, for the purpose of making a living. When the time comes that they can no longer depend on cotton tor a living under the practices in vogue, they will change their methods or turn to something else. The chances are that this year there will be fewer acres than usual devoted to cotton. The natural result will be that the acres plant, ed will be better cultivated, and that the remaining acres will eithei* be devoted to ot^ier crops or so treated that when next cropped they will yield more abundantly and profitably. CARDINAL GIBBONS. The death of Cardinal Gibbons removes from the Catholic church one of its ablest and most devoted offi cers, and from participation in the labors of American citisenship a man thoroughly devoted to the principles on which this nation is founded, and unwearying In his labors for better government and better citisenship. Cardinal Gibbons had reached a great age, and could look back upon a long life devoted to the sen-ice of hu manity. His keenness of intellect and his statesmanlike vision had made him for years a potent- force in shaping the policy of the great church which had so conspicu ously honored him, and whether as a humble priest or as a prince among great ecclesiastics, he labored unceasingly for the welfare of the poor and humble. He shared with other great men the love for the sim ple life. Removed by but otie step from the highest posi tion in bis church, he was modest, unassuming and ap proachable. He was a constant worker in support of pop ular education, and in furtherance of every great cause calculated to better the lot and elevate the character of mankind. Loyal member that he was of his church and able defender of its doctrines, he won and held the esteem and love of men and women in every line of worthy hu man endeavor, and recognized in an unusually broad and tolerant spirit, the kinship of all mankind. PAT OR BE PENALIZED. No humane person wishes to see a debtor hounded to death, or to see an honest debtor who is doing his best refused every possible indulgence. But Germany is not an honest debtor, and she is not doing her best to discharge her obligations. She has never done her best. She has uniformly pursued a policy of procrastination and evasion, and has sought deliberately to fritter away time in useless discussion of things that ought to have been considered settled long ago. Uiere was a good deal of doubt as to what the course of the Allies would be when the German government re fused to accept the decision of the reparations commission and failed to make counter proposals which reasonable men could consider. The Allies have been very tolerant in the matter of these settlements. They have waited, and argued, until it began to be suspected that the Ger ms were to have their -way, after all, and were to escape the making ot reparations ot any kind or in any amount. There is no doubt that tbe Allies had difficulty in agreeing on a progran% France was the most immediately in* Itea the most at stake. Her government stood out for firm measures. The other governments were inclined to be more yielding. But the conferences at Paris and London developed a unanimity among the Allies, and it became apparent that the time had come wben Germany must, do some settling. Whether the German authorities were too dense to see this or were willing for reasons of their own to let events take their course does-not appear. At any rate they persisted in their refusal, and the Allies promptly applied the penalties which tftey had threatened. Their troops are now in charge of one'of Germany's most im portant industrial centers. Germany has again refused to meet, or to attempt to meet, a further condition which was laid down, and she has been informed that if she has not complied by the expiration of the time of grace, further penalties will be exacted! The Allies have-evidently set out to carry forward a program carefully prepared and unanimously agreed upon. Having started on this course, they must continue. To waver now would be to prejudice their entire case. It is more than likely that the Germans still hope that they will find a flaw in the Allied harmony which will enable them to render the entire program futile. The extra session of congress which will begin on, April 11 is likely to last right up to the time of the regu lar session in December. The members will earn their sal aries this year if they are capable of earning it at all. The fact that Lady Astor ran down a man who had threatened to kill her, and kept after him until he was captured, does not necessarily indicate her fitness for a legislative position, but it is a safe bet that it would win her votes If she had another election ahead of her. Representatives of railroad and labor interests at the Chicago hearing are having an animated debate, but they do not Mem to be getting anywhere in particular. Secretary Hoover is reported to be opposed to a trade deal with Soviet Russia. This tends to confirm our former opinion of Hoover's good sense. The independents are united in the opinion that the industrial commission ought to be recalled. Their only point of division is on the wisdom of particular methods. It begin* to look as though Germany must pay through tbe ofkse. it she will not pay any othar way. Although former Premier Vlviaal is merely dropping In tor a friendly call, he -will not be peevish if, he is slipped a tip on the attitude of the United States towards the League of Nations.

Had he really stirred her, warren Gregory wonder ed, as he watched, the thoiightful face under the bright, cherry-loaded hat. "Tou know how often there is neither cool reason nor any cause for laughter in my life Greg," she said, after, a moment. "As for love—I don't think I know what love is! I am an absolutely calculating woman, and my first, last, and only view of any thing is just how much it affects me and my comfort." '1 don't believe it!" said the doc tor. "It's true. And why shouldn't it be?" Rachael gave him a grave smile. "No one," sai^ she seriously, "ever —ever—eper suggested to me that there was anything amiss in that point, of view! Why is there?" "I'don't understand you," said the doctor simply. "One doesn't often talk this way. I suppose," she said, slowly. "But there is a. funny streak of"what shall I call it—conscience, or soul, or what ever you like, in me.

"There's some love for you," said Doctor Gregoryi glancing across the' room to the figures of Miss Leiu Buckney and Mr. Parker Hoyt, who were laughing over a eablnet full of ivories. "I wonder just what would happen there if Parker lost his money to morrow—if Aunt Frothy died and left it all to Magsle Clay?" Rachael suggesHH. smiling. The ™e foctor answeVed otaly with a shrug. "More than that." pursued Ra chael.

Do you suppose that the min ute he'd had his breakfast he would go straight over to Leila's hquse and make his dream a heavenly reality? Or would he decide that there was no harry about it. and that he might as well rather keep away from the Buekney house until he'd made un his mind?" ,, "p "I suppose he might convince him self that an hour or two's delay wouldn't matter!" said the doctor laughing.
