Pcwtoffice as Mail Matter o the
Independent of German Potash
Close upon the heels of the partic
ulars concerning the achievements
ef America chepiists in putting our
own. national dyes "over the top,"
comes frequent official assurances
.tEaX "the' United States does not
need German potash." Secretary of
the Interior, Franklin K. Iiane, says
that when the war started, this
country having had nearly a quarter
of a million tons of potash from Ger
jmajty each year, found herself sud
denly cut off from this important
fertilizer material. American scien
tists got busy and if was not long
before potash was being obtained
from the brine lakes of California,
Nebraska and other State; from
kelp, and ,from the seaweed of the
Pacific Coast, and frojm various min
erals. The scarcity of potash has
boosted the price; and this new in
dustry has been profitable.
Strangely enough, in the very
hour when so much is being looked
for from the Government, and at
the very moment when so many nimble-minded
political gentlemen are
forecasting the Utopia that is to
come with a socialistic form of gov
ernment, we find that the two great
needs of American industry, najmely
dyes and potash, have recorded their
industial achievement by the route
of private initiative. Just as the
great transcontinental railroads were
built by American capitalists, to meet
the needs of a rapidly expanding pop
ulation, and just as electric power
and waterways, and ten thousand
first-class miracles in industry and
business were brought about by the
initiative of human beings seeking
fame and fortune, so has the great
problem with reference to potash
been solved by American genius and
A Blind Man Could Tell!
We wonder how many of our
readers have noticed the difference
between the man who has been mar
ried but a short time and one who
has been (married several years.
You can always tell a young hus
band from an old one. When aman
has been married a few months you
will generally see him working in
the garden or fixing up about the
house and while he works he whis
tles, or sings, or occasionally looks
up toward the window to see if any
one is watching him. A year later
he is still working in the garden,
but the smile has been exchanged
for a frown and he occasionally
looks up toward the house wondering
why in thunder breakfast is not
ready . Another year rolls by and his
looks would sour milk, but he is still
at wrork, stopping occasionally to
kick the dog or throw a brick at the
cat. The next year, we find him sit
ting on the porch smoking a pipe
while his wife does the digging in
the garden. Now just watch our
young men, as one by one they are
caught in Cupid's net and see if this
rule does not work out the problem
