The world is beginning to wake up to the reckless waste practiced for a half century and more in the production and use of its natural re sources. Two-thirds of every ton of coal has gone up into the air or into the dump. Enormous volumes of natural gas have been allowed ito escape to the limilts of an earth at mosphere. Hundreds of millions of barrels of petroleum have flowed over the ground to utter uselessness. And so all along the line. Everywhere you hear of steps be ing taken to correct this wasteful ness. Thus, if conservation becomes the rule hereafter with new discov eries below the surface, there will he less and less need of fear that the ■world will go shortt of coal and gas ollne in the not very distant future, Canada doesn't propose to be a squeezed-out orange like some sec tlons of the United States. During the last five years enormous coal fields and petroleum deposits have been discovered In Alberta, her northwest province, and already she is passing laws against wasteful handling of these resources. One of Canada's Investigators re ports that "if the coal measures of Aliberta be carefully conserved and scientifically utilized, and all the gas, oil and other by-iproduots be re covered to the best advantage, the whole world can be supplied with fuel and oil for a thousand years from ithe Alberta fields alone.'' The future of the coal mining in dustry in America contains some thing like this: great plants at the mines when the coal at Its arrival at the surface will he turned Into electricity (to be carried by wire to cities and towns) and into gas, coke and its other valuable parts, all of which c-an be shipped in small con tainers and cheaper than coal In the bulk. THE VANITY OF THIEVES. "Boddy's vanity came ouf in his eagerness to pose for pictures." Wc quote the foregoing from the account of the capture of a desperate young New York ithief who mur dered two detectives by gun play while under arrest. And there you have it. Young men—imoron. —with the education and brain development of boys of 1 0 or 12, go wring and l'hereafter fake pride in their misdeeds. The desperate in ! murderous they are the nv re .pride they take in the re putation they have gained for vi cious daring. This young man Baddy, «ged 19, was rauyhll with a bunch of news papers in i'is possession. They were all opened to the pages that contain ed his name a dozen times and which told of his hopeless badness. And then when they took him in he posed for his pia'ure willingly, knowing full well that he would see his own portrait the next day. We give too much publicity ito sudden j 111 ore in all the papers j Vhieves and murderers. Such pulb llclty panders to the degenerate «ml immature brain. If the story of a thief must lie told in l he newsipa- i Pits, he should be given a number, j and there should bo a law against | publishing his picture outside of a rogue's gallery O oo o©ooooooooooo© o o O WAPELLO . © Q O OQOQOQQQOQQQQOQQ - Quite a number of Wapello peo-I pie attende I the house party given at the home of Michael Jensen at Brest ',1 la; I Wednesday evening.

However Ithe thermometers were at different localities, being scattered over a radius of several ''»lies and a difference of two degrees i j | might easily he explained in this manner, also one may have been in a more exposed position than a moth er, which would cause some differ ence.
