Gold is still the basis, actual or prospective, of the world's inflated currencies, and the demand for the yellow metal was never more urgent than now High authorities also predict that in time the copper metal also will come into its own. The Engineering and Mining Journal says: A decade or more may produce a condition in the copper market similar to that now existing in the petroleum industry. "We appear to have now a suftVient number of copper mines to supply the demand, but some will be worked out and disappear and it is problematical whether new mines can be brought to produc tion fast enough to cope with the per capita increase in the consump tion of copper. "AVhen we look at the ever-growing electrical power develop ment, the ever increasing market for electrical appliances, we can visualize a greater and greater per capita consumption ot copper It is so with many other metals and with minerals. Mining is in evitable. "Mineral discovery is not as easy as it once was. Metal. and mineral prices may be expected to increase materially as a conse qnCTifce. Just as the porphyry coppers, once thought to be too lowcrade to work, have been improved and new methods become profitable, so will other metalliferous deposits, under the stimulus of high prices, become workable." POLAND FALLS AGAIN AS SHE HAS MANY TIMES BEFORE The country having decided not to put Mitch Palmer at work running for the presidency, he has some time these days to spin a few yarns about his experiences while campaigning for the nomina tion which he did not get. On one occasion when Palmer was speaking from a depot plat form he saw his train approaching: ' "My friends, he said, "my tram is approaching. I shall have to leave you now." "Go on! Go on! the crowd shouted. Palmer still is pondering as to whether his auditors meant for him to continue with his speech or to cat eh the train and go on out of town. He caught the train. NURSERY RHYME TO FIGHT FOREST FIRES This new adaptation of the old nursery rhyme has been put into use by the American Forestry association: This is the man That struck the match , That burned the trees That furnished the logs That fed the mill . i That sawed the boards Arrest this man. "When the Germans, seeing that defeat was inevitable, sued to the allies for armistice their prayer was granted and the war was dismissed at the eleventh hour and day of the eleventh month, just as American troops had scored a touchdown at Sedan and if let go would directly have kicked goal. Had the allies deferred the conclusion of the armistice but a little longer, the rout of the retreating Germans would have been complete, and they would not have been permitted to march back into their own country with their banners flying and proudly pro claiming themselves unbeaten. Russia, looking on from tnc gallery of nations took heed of this, and has since remarked the keen regrets of the allies that they were so precipitate in suspending the war when it was going to advantage. So when Poland sent her envoys to compose an armis tice, the invading Russians repulsed them and pressed on to the conquest of Warsaw. Today it is evident that Poland is crushed in the coils of her powerful antagonist. She is completely at Russia's mercy. And this day (August .r) is the anniversary of the first partition of Poland in 1772 when Russia, Prussia and Austria, her three inveterate en emies, cut slices from that unfortunate country and parceled them out among themselves. Poland's history is a thousand years long and all of them have been years of fighting. Her struggles to be free, her ambitions to become an independent nation, and her aspirations to live at peace with her neighbors have gone for naught. In 1793 another struggle for national life ensued when the Poles were shamefully betrayed, and Prussia seized Danzig, Russia snatched Warsaw and the Aus trian clutched Cracow. Each episode in Polish history has been distinguished by its heores, generals in war and scholars in diplomacy Kosciuszko, Paderewski and Pilsudski but Poland has been unfortunate in being surrounded by neighbors who are filled with racial and religious hatred of the Poles. It may also be said that Poland is unfortunate in her friends those nations which encourage and instigate her to attack Russia, yet when Russia turns and regains the upper hand leave the poor Polish people to their fate. Los Angeles Herald. EUROPE'S DEPLORABLECONDITION Colonel E. M. House, former emissary of President Wilson, is again visting the countries of Europe and in writing of the condi tions that exist over there, has the following to say: "Never has the outlook in Europe seemed darker than now, not even during the worst periods of the war. The calmness one meets is only that of despair. During the last six years there has been so much mental and physical suffering that sensibilities have become numbed. "One crisis follows another so swiftly that it is not possible to obtain a normal reaction. Great Britain not only has grave world difficulties, but she has as well such troubles as Ireland, India, Egypt, Mespotamia and domestic problems that seem almost insolu ble. "France and Italy have as many or more difficult problems facing them, and so have Germany and Russia. It is only the smaller countries that seem measurably exempt and they too feel the strain for what happens to the powers must seriously affect them. "The feeling is general that America has shirked her responsi bilities and has descried the world at a critical time and for selfish reasons. Some feel a grim satisfaction in the conviction that if Europe does go down America will go with her, no matter how hard she tries to hold aloof. On Wednesday of last week at the unveil ing of the statute of the great, human and universally beloved Lin coln, Premier Lloyd Gorge gave voice to the feeling lying deep in the hearts of all when he said: 'This torn and bleeding earth is calling today for the America of Abraham Lincoln.'
