THE AMERICAN'S CREED.
I believe in the United Slates of Amerka
as a government .of the people, by
the people, for the people, whose just
HSS? powers are derived from the consent of
the governed; a democracy in a repubI
lie, a sovereign Nation of many sovereign
Bpl?y- ? States; a perfect Union, one and insepHI'jI&Me.
established upon those principles of freedom, equal'
it$,< justice, and humanity for which American patriots
P; sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is
1 my July to my country to love it; to support its Constitution;
to obey its laws; to respect lis flag; and to defend it
||p<r|atnit all enemies.

, the course of remodeling. A typical little incident thi
would, in peace tines, male the muckraker chortle wit
glee at the chance for vicious comment.
Preparations in army and navy were made for a fiv<
years' combat. Supplies were bought on that scale an
stored away, many of them perishable supplies, bought t
the top of a sky-high market This, of course, booste
prices, removed supplies and foods and equipment froi
public use, but it also inculcated in millions of men an
women the contempt for the dollar. The public's mone
came so easily, and in such vast quantities, that all ordir
ary business sense was lost; and it remains lost, as a glanc
at the proposed budgets of the government will indicate.
The world mortgaged its future for fifty years an
squandered with reckless abandon for four years. Nc
in months, or six years will this spirit of squandering b
excised, nor the desire to suddenly acquire riches throug
great profits be stifled in the hearts of the nations.
SAFETY FIRST FOR CHILDREN.
IN these days of swift,moving traffic it is a wonder ther
are not more tragedies like that on Morgantown avenu
in which a little boy was fatally injured under the wheel
of a trolley car. Parents cannot be continually on th
watch. Even the rich who are able to employ persona
attendants can never be sure that their little ones ar
secure from harm. The death of the little McClean bo'

Therefore the best possible safeguard is to teach childrei
early to-take care of themselves; to keep out of the street
when they play and never to cross a Tiighway except at ;
crossing and thin only after they have stopped to see i
the road is clear.
It can be done; it is done by thousands of mothers. Bu
it cannot be done merely by ordering them not to do thi
or that thing and then tongue lashing them if they an
caught disobeying. They must be made to understam
why they should be careful of their personal safety.
: o
Tonight the committee appointed by the chamber o
Commerce to inquire into the merits of the propose<
increase in rate3 for telephone service will make a re
port at a special meeting of the body. It is understoo(
that the committee made a very thorough study of thi
telephone situation in Fairmont, and there ought to b<
a large attendance of members to hear It and take actioi
upon it.
o?
Rather unexpectedly the Foreign Relations committei
decided yesterday that it had completed its work witt
the peace treaty and that document with the committee
amendments written into it will be reported out lat<
next week. Under ordinary circumstances there woulc
be weeks and weeks of debate on the floor of the senate
ahead, but the country is beginning to get restless aboul
this treaty matter and It is a pretty safe guess that the
senate too will decide to quit talking and fungo hittinj
at a rather early date.
Mexico has formally expressed regrets that Americai
army planes were fired upon by Mexican soldiers and the
acute Mexican situation is less acute as a result. One
of these fine days something will happen that an apolog)
cannot square and then the world will find out some'
thing of what is running In the back of the heads of ole
Carranza and his gang.
George A. Zabriskle, president cf lha Sugar Equalization
board, -'ays that the country cannot be relieved
for some time to come of the sugar shortage. This is
most unfortunate and It shows th&lMhe trade when left
to Its own devices is not nearly as efficient as it was
last year when It. was under the thumb of tho Food administration.
Last year during the heighth of the
canning and preserving season it was possible for any
housewife to get sugar in 25 pound lots. The best that
can be done now Is tw.o pounds at a time, and there is
more than a suspicion that some dealers are deliberately
refusing to handle sugar because they are not permitted
to charge their own price for it. That is a condition
which should have the serious attention of the whole
grocery trade, for such actions are certain to bring the
matter of food distribution under public control. It
can be done, although there may be men in business
whq think that it cannot. People dealing in food ought
to be warned by what happened to those in the liquor
business who felt, so secure that they got into a publicbe-damned
frame of mind. When they woke up and
attempted to reform i,t was too late. The wholesalers
and the manufacturers who had millions.invested and
were respectable business men had to go along with the
corner saloon which was an offense to the public.

Something like fifty years ago,
it was not an uncommon diver'
sion among deacons to swap
horses
After the oral battle of wits was
over, one man found he had a
horse with a wall-eye and the
other perhaps, waited some time,
like David Harum in the rainstorm,
before his horse showed
any inclination of starting foi
home and the hay strewn stall.
Those little "weaknesses'' ot
horseflesh were not mentioned in
the bargaining, but that was "gosh
durned smart" business fifty years
ago.
The day for that kind of shrewdness
has gone by, both for deacons
and business houses, alike.
No establishment grows, like
Courtneys' for instance, if its business
dealings savor of those in
which the above-mentioned deacons
took part.
Dependability and Honest Values
Are Courtneys' Standards.
