Slides will be shown in the moving picture theaters of the state which will show graphically the danger of careleeiness in thle respect and literature dealing with this subject will be distributed in the towns thrruoghout the state. All the towns along the C. & 0. and the N. & W. railways will be Inspected and another Inspection will follow this one some time later to inears that the Instructions and orders given now will be obeyed. Later all of the towna and cities will be inspected and the same procedure carried out.

That man is John Dee Moss .a photographer who has ! his studio in the Latstetter building at Clarksburg, and he is a member of the Quaker church. De Moss had previously filed a claim for exemption on the ground that he is a married man with dependant wife, but fearing, evidently, that his claim on that score would not be recognized he recently filed the other. Judge Thomas A. Null, of Huntington, stated recently that he is going Into the northern panhandle of the state and buy a carload of peaches as soon bb they are ripe, ship them to Huntington and eell them to the housewives of that town at cost. Samuel B. Montgomery, commissioner of labor, very heartily approved the plan when it was brought to his attention and is advising other citizens of the state to take this practical means of showing their patriotism and loyalty. The scheme, while not a money making one, is not a money loosing proposition if properly con ducted .since there are hosts ot housewives all over the state who would Jump at the opportunity,to get high grade peaches at cost, and any one with the necessary capital for the initial investment can be of real service in this way, says Mr. Montgomery That the production of honey in West Va. will increase $1,000,000 within the ne*t year is the opinion of T. K. Massey, of Athens, W. Va., who is one of the best bee authorities in the state and a member,of the division of the agricultural commission which was recently organized for the purpose of furthering the honey producing industry in this state. Mr. Massey has invented a hive which incorporates a number of remarkable features and is said to be very popular with the fifty thousand bee keepers of West Virginia, as well as with those in other states where the hive has been introduced. 1 i "A Guide for the Buying Public" is t the title of a booklet recently issued i by Samuel B. Montgomery, state com- 1 missloner of weights and measures. 1 The slogan which Mr. Montgomery ] quoted when issuing the booklet Is i ftlrnn frnm TCiticr Snlnmon. "A falae I balance is an abomination to the Lord; but Just weight is his delight," and the purpose of the publication is to assist the housewives of the state in securing full weight and measures of household necessities. This Is part of a systematic campaign which the department is carrying on to protect the purchasing public from dishonest or careless merchants and this little booklet will be distributed among the housewives of the state. "That's about a sixteen shoe you are wearing, isn't' it?" asked George Bell, a negro from Atlanta, Ga., when he appeared on the street of Beckley, Raleigh county, recently. "Naw, suh. man, nothln' like dat. Dat's a small size twlhty-three." was the reply, as the huge mass of black padded off, bearing a striking resemblance tp the modern "tanks" which are being used so succetsfully on the battle fields across the waters.

Some samplgs of corn grown on the farm of Senator Faulkner at Boydvillo ware sent last year to Jacob Kline, Cozad, Neebraska, by T. R. Kline, who resides near Boydville, and the samples were planted. Some of the crop from this corn was this year sent to the state department for analysis, with a result that was very flattering to the West Virginia corn since it passed a very high test, germination alone being 100 per cent. The test wns made by H. Feme Peck, seed analysist of the Nebraska Food, Drug, Dairy and Oil Commission. According to computations made by the state department of agriculture, West Virginia farmers, truck men and gardeners can save two and a half million dollars on next spring's planting by taking the precaution to save seed this year's crop. Commissioner Stewart of the department gives the people of the state credit for raising about 250,000 gardens and truck patches, basing his estimate on personal observation. Most authorities on the subject would estimate twenty-five dollars as the amount needed to purchase seeds for a good, big garden, but as some of the truck patches are rather small, Mr. Stews art malces his calculations on an averago of ten dollars to the garden, which is a very conservattce estimate. Editorial Comment on Current Subjects STRATEGY AND FATE. Prom the Pittsburgh Gazette Times. That the German armies cannot hope to win a victory on the west front is something more than a mere patriotic assumption; it is a belief founded on Fact. Indeed, if a study of the war in Prance/ compels any conclusion, it is that the Germans have not been In a position to defeat their enemy since the retreat from the Marne. The destruction of armies or parte of armies Is still necessary to a victory at arms, In spite of the changes in methods of tightlng to this end, the occupation ot territory is secondary. A deeper consideration of the case indicates that the German strategists put the occupation of land ahead of the destruction ot soldiers, but that Is beside the point; are may be satisfied, however, that the tactics of the Ally command aim at the wiping out of enemy units primarily. The military critic of the Berlin Tagcblatt was reported last week to nave warned the German leaders they nust tlnd some wsy of defeating Great Britain on land it they hoped to bring the war to an end honorable for tfle Empire. That was, of coarse, an ad* nisslon of two things; that no way had seen found to whip the British army tnd that the submarine warfare [which, we recall, was to starve Engand by July 1) Is a failure, Von Arlenne, the critic, goes on to hope that he strategists will find a way to force Ireat Britain, through a series ot nighty battles, to seek peace. But, he nsinuates, tactics different from those n vogue now will be necessary. vjivo me utrman macaiue creun ior ill It has accomplished aa a machine, a It sot apparent that it hat goat too ar In one direction to be saved by sudlenly turning In another? Is it not too ate for a saving tactical change? rhere may have been a time between he Battle of the Marne and now when , military genius could have handled he German armies in such a way at to ompel a series of battles favorable to lis cause. Nobody can name that time. Students and historians may delight ome day in trying to select the period if German opportunity; the present ;eneratton is satisfied' to know the leriod is gone. Fate?or better etttl, Providence? nterrened to prevent the military ring rom conquering turope, 11 we are to ollow tho thoughts suggested by Von trdenne's article to their logical contusion. Prussian strategy, as we all enow, was based upon force that Is, he war lords trusted to preparedness hall Its phases, speed and orsnrhslar li| amahem to defeat the eawty la a i few manthe. We know now tint It wist wrong because It did not conald- g erEngiand'e entry as probable and till- i oouatod bar power too much. The school ot thought that evolved this I vtr plot tailed to eontlder all the pot Ibllltlea. and even when It aaw its c cherished theories (ailing refused to dlacwrd them. It went blindly on with thli doctrine of force until it had not t only wasted the power of lie splendid t army against the fortresses of Verdun and the trench lines of the Aisne, but e bad made the dame of Germany abhor- < rent through (rightfulness on the seas and had brought in against It all the 1 great nations of the earth. Had Progl- 1 deuce permitted a ray of light to pene- 1 trate the Pruatlan brain, showing nim hit error and counseling a modifies- 1 tlon of hie beloved plan to meet unfore eeu events, Germany might have come 1 off undefeated. And that would have been a calamity. i| The wonder of tbla never-ceasing 1 battle In France and BelgltrtnUs that ' the German leaders do not see the futlllty of the atruggle. They keep send- ' ing in regiment after regiment in furious counter attacks against lost posltlons with the certain knowledge they are sending them down to death. Sacrifice of lives must always be in proportion to the value of the object to be . gained. That Is a principle not to be Ignored without disaster, as reference . to several battles of tbe Civil War . will show. By ignoring this principle the Germans are making It possible for the Allies to destroy their armies. One may argue that, setting store by 1 captured terrain, the Teutons revolt J from relinquishing it without & desperate struggle, but since the "Big Push" of July, 1916, which developed into the Bottle of the Somme, they have been forced to give up territory and lives by t the thousands, too. So there is little a of reason In their tactics. r If fate has so far been been onUhe t Bide of humanity, there 1b no reason to 1 suppose a mere change of method could bring a German victory. Provl- 1 dence Is benign. Tbe various forces r at work in the world have been bring- I Ing peace and safety through the de- r feat of miltCarla nearer since the war I began. We have not been able to see \ It always and there la an ever-dlminlsh- ( Ing number who still refuse to; but the triumph of the right Is Inevitable and a mere shifting of Teutonic armies cannot prevent it. f ?? .
