Apart from the losses of cam paign and battlefield it liaa plunged a MjOJlt of the provinces Into iovcrty and famine, it has stopped all com-i.i- n and trade, crippled agriculture anJ Industry, and diverted practically ev.ry penny of tax revenue from the purpose- of peace.

WHAT MR. YOUNG DID. According to Washington advices, itep H. i M in Young Of Ishpetnlng, w ho ha BOOB io i le the subject of a bitter attack by Secretary Martin of the Am- . ni Anti-Trust league, appear not greatly perturbed. Mr. Young, regarded as the steel ex port on the Stanley cvomrnlttec, has Mod with Littleton In his contention that the Stanley commute) ha no right to inquire further, because the government has brought suit against the steel company. This called forth Martin's attack on ti e upper peninsula member. Including 0M charge that both Idttle-tnn and Young were the servants of the steel trust. Friends of Mr. Young Insist he has taken a clean-cut stand of absolute impartiality, seeing to it that the hear ings were conducted with equal Jus tice. What Mr. Young rcnlly did was to put an effectual stop to the rushing of mre tips from the steel hearings to men seeking to profit by slumps they mlgH aiise In steel stock. BUT CANADA STILL BUYS. A most striking feature of our re-!-,t OBB with Canada Is observable In the fact that, while th Canadians have r.J ct. d reciprocity, they still buy Immense and Increasing quantities of our product. A bit. r port from the U. S. consi t In Kingston record the following con ditions in connection with the demand of our northern neighbr for articles we nave to sell: Locomotive, castings for the flnirid Trunk raMrnad are made? In Pennsyl vania; ties for the .im system are bought In the States. Immense quanti ties of coal are lmorted acrosj tht bonier fr. in our slle. Practically all the cke uei In Canadian foundries ship-building yarda and le.Hemoti shorn la from our country.

STEEL CARS SAVED THEM. Ye-;, rday the St. Paul railway s overland limited train, ' 'Olympian,' vus derailed In a deep cut near Java Junction, S. I). The entire train left the track and three sleeping car turn ed over. Although several hundred people were aboard, only one person, the conductor, was Injured. The (Ml that it was a solid ateel train prevent ed the loss of life. Su h train, taking a crossover switch In New Jersey last week nt fif ty miles un hour ulo was complete!. deruib-d. The engineer and fireman were killed but not a passenger was In jured The cars stood the shock with out serious damage and their occu pants were unharmed. Tim all steel train certainly is doing much to reduce the perils of railroad I r ,t .:. In the old day of wooden cars such accidents would probably have meant scene of carnage. The heavy Pull man cars at the rear of the train would probably have ploughed their way through the car Immediately in front, telescoping them and crushing to death their occupants. Then fire might have broken out and burned to death those still living. Such thing-- ha occurred before. Hut there was no such result with the steel cars. They were non collapsible. Their strength was sui-h as to resist the shock. There was no Splintered Wood, no telesc oping. There was no flre, for the cars were unburn nble. A Pittsburgh news Item tells of big t b rs for steel cars being turned In and this Is an encouraging sign. Rail road travel has been put on a safe bn s s. It has always been easy to over estimate the perils Of trains. Accidents have. In view of the number of trains run, been comparatively rare, but sci entific appliances are lessening what dangers have existed and the steel car Is one of the factors in lhn. INSULAR AFFAIRS PROSPEROUS. The annual report of the chief of the BJBfOgMi of Insular Affairs Is a story of unusual progress In the Philippines and Porto Rico for the past twelve months. HusineH' e nterprise has grown, the soil has yielded big crops; financial affairs have reflected a feeling of op timism, and the constabulary and 00f die-is have done a great deal toward the wiping out of the rnnuradlng bam'e that have caused So much trouble to the planters in the Inland towns. Roportg e...-ring the operations of the pOOtOl savings Ismk for the fiscal year ending June 30, 1910, show con tinued increase In the number of de positors. In the- field of education the same story of progress is told. In July, 1910. there were twenty-eight government students pursuing studies in different parts of the United States. Suae that time eighteen of these student! have returned because of the ..mpl.- tlon of their work. f these returned three have received degrees in medi cine, seven In civil engineering, one In Otsj trical engineering. There are now In the 1'nited States eleven students, four of whom are re ceiving no assistance from the govern ment Nearly Jill of these' students will ' ipletc their Weirk next year. The notable progress, commercial and industrial, made in Porto Rico during the fiscal year ef 1910, not only continued but increased during the vear Just passed. The- geverner ef Por to MOO save of this period In his an nual report: "At its clone, a greater degree of prctoperlty existed among the people than at any previous time; ev ery Industry was aetlve and prosper ous, furnishing employment for all who Fought it."

CHE NORMAL LIFE IS THE COUNTRY LIFE. THE MAN WHO MAKE8 HIS HOME IN THE COUNTRY MAY ENJOY THE NATURAL PHYSICAL BENEFITS OF GOOD AIR, GOOD FOOD AND GOOD WATER. FURTHERMORE, HE WILL REAP THE SPIRITUAL BENEFITS OF BEAUTIFUL 8URR0UN DINGS AND NEIGHBORLY COMPANIONSHIP. As for tho so called tdrantagM of the city, there is no ronson why all Umm should not bo TRANSPLANTED BODUY INTO TIIK country:. No man, woman or child should livo in any place whore it is im pnnnili to ftmm INDIVIDUAL PLOT OF EARTH. A garden is one of tho natural and inalionablo rights of every uman being. It is all very well to have a city house or apartment for a few months in the year, but you are greatly to be pitied if you must spend all your time in it. I do not mean that the cities should go out of existence altogether. They have a legitimate function as centers of exchange, for banks and clearing houses and shops. Rut they are NOT SUITED TO THE LOCATION OF THE PRODUCTIVE INDUSTRIES, with thuir thousands of employees who mu;t livo near the places where they work. I hope to seo tho passing of ordinances by all tho great cities for bidding the location of all manufacturing plants within their borders. T!m n the various firms would be compelled to MOVE INTO THE COUNTRY, and the workingmen and workingwomen could follow them. If tho manufacturers only realized it they would profit by snfh a move, and they would make it without being compelled to do so. RENTS ARE LOWER IN THE COUNTRY.
