"WINDJAMMERS RETIRED HE defense which Slate Tax Commissioner Haltanan made at the Parkersburg Chamber Commerce banquet recently a gals it the Charcot extravagance la state administration wu a ?Iy oiM> and right to the point ? [t lus lone been the custom tor the poUUcal party tat office f.0 castigate the controlling party with m&W" ^ extravagance and misapplication- ot 10s. It has always been peanut political pro ganda, and In the light ot the present day ithods of creating opinion, Is obsolete, (or the jjiUcysjtoo Intelligent to listen to mnch hot air thont solid -substantiation. Mr..Hallanan spoke of this and condemned isly "that kind ot politics," hoping tor a realita n ot tke time when the campaign Issues will be iSljjnpoh;broad principles of goTernment rather ia oppn the efforts ot one party to deceive, mls presont, ,and to prejudice. Mr. Ballanan said, "If I do not miss my gness come forth soon from a repudiation pettifogging political buncome." The people hare the discrimination to choose e best, and tbe time has gpne Into the past when Hfurty can gain by throwing mud at Its opponent, to political windjammer who mounts the stomp (I reviles the extravagance and shortcomings ot qfein office merely moves his audience to Im tlence. It there has been extravagance the peo 0 are as well aware ot It as is the man who ad cssesthem. What the people desire, to know, Is Mt the party seeking preference has to otter that lll tnake for a better, cleaner administration, iat is the information that win get votes, and jtisthe knowledge for which the Intelligence idlence ot today hangers. bum upon faith y FTER all, the Washington Conference will j^V jiave held Its twelve weeks Sessions in vain iless the powers wblch^ave here assembled keep ie faith. There iq no reasoa to question their in; ntlon-of doing so. The whole fabric ot the treaties Mch'hBVe been signed, sealed, and accepted, Is enti)ft;bat of lalth in each other, and belief la the sslra of all representatives to live up to the pacts MC&iiave been entered into. There Is real sacrifice typified In-the concessions l^ijome of the countries have made. Japan,, utlcularly, ha? given in to things that were hard jr $er to accept, bnt she has made her concessions ncfjtiUly, and there' can be no reasonable doabt r her sincerity In her part ot the conference, .yhe ten years to come will be a testing period, [any delicate situations will be bound to develope. ; ?tort 'Mi Wt? ? i? w ot i^ji' . .!$* 9?

This English publication thinks that the old name* for the different coins may be retained but that they will represent quite new values. None ot the countries concerned, observes the publication, lp apt nearly In a position to Issue Its new currency, because until private and public In come Is raised to the level of private ani public expenditure there can be no creator stability for the new than^pr the old currency. Financial stability must precede currency reform and not the other way about. Americans wbo have patiently learned some thing about' the value and names ot the coins of these countrlos will'have it all to do over again when prosperity returns and the usual procession resumes Its sightseeing In overseas countries. How ever attractive the new currency niay b\ In all Its artistic beauty and glittering freshness, It will have to speed up to look as good as the good old U. S. A. coins which have borne up amazingly during^ troublous days. A VALUABLE INVENTION THE latest announcement of thermos bottles j that will hold 8,600 gallons Is something whleh will make the public sit up. WJ#T though, wonld want a thermos bottle that would hold that much, will be the first question to smite the mind ot the readeT. As a hip pocket flask one could never get by, and.who wonld desire 2,600 gallons of Just average ordinary every day fluids? These fewest thermos bottles are not to be used by Individuals, however, they are enormous glass lined tanks, mounted upon railroad car trucks and they are to be tried out between West Farmlngton, Ohio, and Pittsburgh, a distance ot a hundred miles,.to transport milk. The glass tanks are of] wonderful construction In which the glass Is fused into the metal, according to the Literary Digest, and forms a tough smooth surface that will stand rough usage;-they are so perfectly Insulated that 'during th? hot spell of lsst summer the milk showed but one and one-halt degrees ot difference at the end of the run. _ Because of tie lining of the tanks thoy can be sterilised perfectly; they each have an agitator] which Is employed at the end of the run to stir the contents completely so that the milk will be of uniform richness throughout when It Is removed at the terminal. . y Glass lined tank trucks for shorter hauls are Illustrated. Probably no recent contrivance that' so affect*, the health of the people can be found to | ' exceed this If It proves to be the success which Initial experiments would lead us to expect. No doubt the Impossible has happened; one movie actor lp Los Angeles Is glad to step out ot the spot light ot public attention and allow others to take'his. place. ' The T. W. wants some more books for its library. Nothing heavy, probably. After eating one ot, those square meals at the cafeteria, nobody wishes to take on anything ot much weight. There has been some concern expressed about the front steps bearing np under the departing guests; It might be well to reinforce them with a little concrete before any accidents happen. I ?

Any head of the household? "Hope it does not get very cold, gas bills are high enough." Any wife to her hnsband?"Brush the snow off your feet before you come In the house this evening.
