Other causes—the waste of war, under-pro duction, credit inflation—have added dollars to the cost of the necessities of life, while freight charges have added only cents. The average charge for hauling a ton of freight a mile is less than a cent. A suit of clothing that sold for $30 before the war was carried 2,265 miles by rail from Chicago to I>os Angeles for 16& cents. Now the freight charge is 22 cents and the suit sells for $50. The cost of the suit has increased 20 dollar». The freight on it has increased only 5j cents. Other transportation charges enter into the cost of the finished article—carrying the wool to the mills and the cloth to the tailors—but these other charges amount to but a few cents tnore. r' ■ The $10 pair of shoes that used to sell for $5 goes from the New Eng land factory to the Florida dealer for a freight charge of 5% cents—only one cent more than the pre-war rate.

Dudley Doolittle, who used to be In congress from Kansas, recently re turned from Europe, where he went on a secret mission for the United Stntes government. While in France, Mr. Doolittle had the unusual experience f roaming around several hundreds of battlefields with a seventy-six-pound suitcase clasped firmly ln bis arms. Shortly after Doolittle landed In Paris, and just before lie started for the battle- fields, the handle broke off his sult- case, which contained a number of valuable documents and papers which were almost as heavy as hardware samples. There w as no porter around to help Doolittle into his automobile, nor was there any" around during the ensuing ten days of Ills trip. There fore, there was nothing for him to do but to clasp the suitcase firmly to his chest and get the best view of the bat tlefields that lie could from behind the obstruction. Doolittle say-s that he got so used to viewing war scenes from behind the suitcase that in order to enjoy movies of the war now he has to take a min iature doghouse to the motion picture theaters with him and hold it on bis lap throughout the performance. Montaigne Had Idea of "Tanks." While the court nf inquiry Is so bus ily engaged in weighing the various claims to original authorship of tanks, and while discussion on the subject is going on in sundry capitals, a French writer, brushing aside YY'ells and bis "Anticipations," points to one of the fathers of literature, Michel de Mon taigne, ns the man to whom medals and kudos are really due. There is a prognostication In one of the Essays of the entry of combatants into battle inclosed in bastions "just like those which the ancients caused their ele phants to carry." There is the germ of the tank invention right enough, but that It should have taken so long to germinate may not inconceivably be regarded ns invalidating Mon taigne's claims to the Drolx de Guerre. Needed Coaching. Volumes have been written about the poor English of high school pupils, but an eighth grade teacher believes that another chapter should lie added to one of the volumes.

All that Is certain Is that the j former population of some 18.000 souls j are now for the most purl at I'aris t'lage and Blatikenberghe and that ! most of them are anxious to return ; "home." There are more than a thousand people living in Y pres today, hut those are mainly adventurers from Brussels mid elsewhere, who have been utlract I by the chance of making money out of visitors, says the Boudon Times. A Y pres Is rising among the ruins of the old. but It is a wooden Y pres, of a character altogether repulsive to all who realize that a quarter of a mil were given to defend the salient which takes its name from the town lie' Inn lives The new Ypres Is a place of cafes and restaurants, of mobs of picture postcard hawkers, of pleasure wagons and omnibuses, of souvenir hunters and noise. There Is a so-called "Brit ish lavera" In the grand palace Itself, and the road to the Menin gate Is lined with places of refreshment. In the town and Its vicinity there are 13!i cafes and restaurants, and everywhere among the tumbled heaps of brick and fillister, stone and girders men are ea gerly hammering and building to in crease the number. The Belgian government has shown Itself very willing to consider all rea sonable proposals In the way of con serving the ruins and of erecting me morials. It has declared that the re mains of the Cloth hall, cathedral and adjacent buildings will be left as they are. It has allotted to the Canadians certain sites by the Menin gate. It 1ms promised a site for the erection of an English church. There has been talk of preserving the whole of the remains of the town as a memorial.
