confidence m die ministry, which can be taken at almost
any time; is all that is needed to tnxn die government m

In die United States it takes time to torn die nuu liinciy

during the year just preceding oar entrance into die great
war have thrown us into helplessness political confusion.
There is die utmost harmony in the peace aims of die
leaders of all die nations associated in the war upon Germany.
bat die Britdi government has never accepted as a
whole Mr. W3soo"s fourteen specific terms and it is quite
possible that a majority of die people of Great Britain
would not approve of diem as a whole.. Indeed, while
die-American people are a unit behind Mr. Wilson in his
coodnct of die war. even they are not prepared to say that
they are as unitedly behind Iris peace-terms until they know
exactly what he means when in his third demand he calls
for the "removal of all economic values and die establishment
of equality of trade conditons among the nations consenting
to die peace and associating for its maintenace."

puefiation of every one of the economic principle* which have
made America the richest and die greatest as well as die
best nation the world ever saw.
Yet here are some unofficial representatives of an American
class soberly proposing to a great British political
party that it adopt the Wilson program in to to. Well,
to say die least, it ought to set lots of people in both countries
to thinking rather seriously. In the meantime some
light ought to be thrown upon the actions of these Americans.
Who axe they acting for. and who asked them to
set up shop as arbiters of international policy?
o
MONEY AND HAPPINESS.
THE city editor of die New York Evening World
murdered his wife the-other day and when he later
gave himself up to the police be said amply that he had
been driven to die deed by desperation over die demands
of his creditors. He had intended to take his own life,
but had been prevented. Yet it was one of the theories
of the late Joseph Pulitzer that in order to get the best
work out of men they most be paid liberally enough to be
beyond die necesity of worrying about their personal financial
affairs. And the employes of the Pulitzer newspapers
if not die best paid in the United States are certainly liberally
compensated.
The melancholy incident proves that you cannot make j
a theory that will fit the cases of all men and women. J
Pulitzer himself did not care for the things money is most {
commonly used to purchase, although he loved the power |
which it gives when used wisely as he could use it In the
position of this employe of one of his great papers half die
salary would have enabled him to satisfy every want and,
make him supremely happy. It is probable that twice die;
amount would not have had that effect in the case of die j
uxoricide.
It is a queer old world, and it treats some of the people '
who live in it extremely rough- It is a wise man or woman
who is able to keep both feet on the ground and look the
realities straight in the face. It is pretty easy to fool oth
ers. but danger is right ahead it we try to tool ourselves
and one of die things we ought all to learn early b that
there b no happiness in money. I

"Military success," said Secretary Daniels yesterday
in an address to a class of young naval officers being
graduated at Annapolis, "is the only argument German
militarists can understand." Quite true, but in spite
of their fondness for talking about Germ aula's shining
sword they are not going to be over scrupulous about
the methods they employ to prevent military success. !
Any trickery that can win will be employed by the !
German government and the gentlemen at Washington
will have to be on their guard.
o
There probably will be no need to resort to drafts j
to fill the navy and the Marine Corps as was provided
for in the orders announced by Provost Marshal General
Crowder yesterday. As a matter of fact there is likely
to be a rash for both services as soon as the announcement
is made that voluntary inductions will be accepted.
Men who have a preference for either of these
branches will do well to apply early.
o .
France has joined Italy and Portugal in protesting
against the intention of the American government to '
put an embargo upon the importation of wine. It is a .
rather embarrassing situation at a time like the present!
when we are extremely anxious not to do anything to
hurt the nations we are associated with in the war, and
it shows how closely we are getting linked up with the
rest of the world. Bnt in the end the protesting governments
probably will have to acquiesce ir. the policy
this government has adopted because it is going to increase
our ability to help them.
o
Director General McAdoo has been compelled to withdraw
most of his order forbidding railroad men to participate
in politics. That sort of thing can not be done
in a country organized as this one is without depriving
a large portion of the population of rights which have
always been regarded as inalienable. The only way
in which to keep the railroads from becoming a troublesome
political problem is to turn them back to private
ownership after the war is over.

Yesterday was a quiet day on the west front, out tne
British managed to take twelve towns, all of them quite
close to St. Qnentin, from the Germans. Apparently It
is a quiet day when the German line is not Mag literally

man tram Italy who knows t treat
deal about the art of shoe-making and {
repairing, and who Is located in an
npttdat* shop on Madison street,
owns two pairs of shoes Just a wee
bit different from the usual ran of
foot-wear and which can be seen on
display In Coogje's window on Main
1 street. One pair of these shoes comes
I from Holland and the other pair from

with a small amount ot earring. Bow
Hollanders to wear these
shoes comfortably remains a mystery
to as though it is not difficult. to imagine
that should we adopt the custom
at the present time, oar-shoe bills
would he cat does greatly. Surely .
one pair of wooden shoes would last
sometime!
The small shoes from Switzerland
which stand beside the bigger ones
from Holland In Coogie's window are
made of pure leather, much better,
much heavier and much more substantial
than any the majority of as own.
These small shoes bare been worn
three years and still they stand on
exhibition for all to see?seemingly in
as good condition as ever. I should
like to have yon look particularly at
the soles, filled with large head nails.
Such a clump-clump as they would
make coming down our Main street
pavement. Surely no boy could ever
wear through those nan heads to the I
sole beneath! These shoes are laced j j

I asked Hike Ttmnfno bow much;
those small shoes est In Switzerland
and he replied that their were worth i
some few years ago about four dollars. I
Notj they would be higher. Shoes I
there, he says, are'not particularly j
cheap, bat they are made of mnch bet-.
ter leather than we have here. Shoes j
in Fairmont at the present time run in .
price anywhere from eight to fifteen!
dollars. A cheaper shoe can bebought
but it is not a very good or a J
very beautiful shoe. The main difference
between a good and a bad shoe!
now lies in the fact that the five or!
six dollar shoe now is the same shoe
[ we formerly paid two or three dollars .
: for?a shoe which is rather shapeless,J
i of cheap leather and which has very
poor wearing qualities. It becomes a
question under war time regulations:
whether we pay the price asked in the '
city for a perfect fitting, fine quality
shoe?a price which is truly excep-!
tionaliy high though perhaps not very j
much higher in proportion to all things
?or whether we insist on paying just
what we did two years ago and not get
at all what we got then, but instead
