It is said that a net curtailment of Eleven or Twelve Billion Dollars a year in the total production for our country is probable. Since we have approximately 26,000,000 workers engaged in industry this is a cur tailment per worker or per average family of nearly $500 yearly. With such curtailment the purchasing power of the workers is reduced, they will buy less and Industries engaged in implying domestic needs must suffer. A possible way out ts to Increase our foreign trade, and unless we do this we shall incur a period of depression, perhaps more serious than any within our memory. In order to engage in tbrelgn commerce tion as a people to take foreign securities in settlement, foreign countries cannot settle in cash.

Some of the topics treated in the , hook are primary soils, drainage, design of surface drain age, gutters, drop inlets and catch basins, subdrainage, foundations, and specifications. T of CODDLING THE SLACKER Some grotesque things are hap pening in connection with the de mobilization of American soldiers. Take an everyday occurence at Camp Funsten as an instance. The loyal soldier who has fought •in France must buy his own civilian clothing when he comes out of the He can keep his uniform for army. a few months if he desires, but most men want to get back into a civil ian outfit. So he is discharged with out his old time clothing allowance and spends what he has saved with the clothier. At Camp Funsten they have a large number of "conscientious ob jectors," and mingled with these are others parading themselves as I.W. W., "International Socialists" and plain dtsloyaltists. Be it remem bered that the honest "conscientious objector" is a rare bird in these camps. These beings xvere drarted into the army. They wouldn't drill, they wouldn't wear a uniform, they wouldn't bathe and their unclean liness was nauseating. They were and are, disloyalists, traitors, many of them creatures of the^Fotsdam gang that is no more. Nevertheless, when these gentry are discharged from the army they are taken by a representative of the government and given a full outfit of clothing, hat, spit, shoes, socks, underwear, shirt, collar, gloves, and even a necktie! to a !'. They have been drawing tlieir $30 a month army pay. the same pay that a loyal American fighting man was. given. Furthermore, tnere is no record that any of these objec tors even objected to drawing that $30 per. Of course every man of them got a "dishonorable discharge, conduct had," when they were let go. That worries them not'at all. They managed to keep their prec ious hides out of shrapne, range, while the better men died, its! Our War Department uas done some strange things. Just what I strange force, working under cover in Washington, .has permitted these an things, no one seems to know. just : what jower it was that brought the ! summary discharge of a number of to Funsten officers because tney had attempted to make these creatures keep themselves clean and obey the simplest routine, has never oeen pur tiaily explained, by , u. subject of investigation, tlie delt ! cate and tender solicitude offered If Congress wants the disloyalist and conscientious ob to lector in the army camps offers something wo-th investigating.—St. !

Red ( mss representatives, conferred with tlie county commissioners last Monday regarding tlie payment ot Red Cross hospital claims. The board has been compelled by lack of necessary legal authority, to pay Red Cross hospital claims contract ed for prior to November 15th. The authority of the board of county commissioners establishing a tempo rary Red Cross hospital was ordered November 15. 1918. and all claims I prior to that date were necessarily disallowed by the board. The mem bers of the Red Cross explained the burden that would b" placed upon the organization were they compel led to collect and pay these disal lowed amounts. The board, being anxious to assist the Red Cross in this financial dilemma, agreed to take the matter up with the county attorney and, if possible, the legal authority to consider and allow claims contracted by the Red Cross emergency hospital prior November 15. 1918. arrance.. arrange - 1 ! : Prisoner Outruns Daggett.

There never was a epigram made than Thomas A. Edison's words on genius. "Gen ius," he said, "is not inspiration, but perspiration," and this may be applied to the mechanic, to the fi nancier, to the lawyer, doctor, artist or musician with equal force. truer One of the outstanding results of boys' agricultural club work in Ten essee has been its effect upon the parents of the members, sons of a Madison county farmer joined the com club last year. One son produced 144 bushels on his acre, another 139 bushels, and the third 120 bushels, the profit from the three acres being $464.64.
