They were ex aggerating:. The spirit was not dead. It was only wirepin. Now it is wak ing up. We are having a revival of tii- spirit here in the fall of l'Jl4, somewhat similar to that religious re vival that Billy Sunday visited upon us in the spring of l'jl'l, but incident ally it has been noticeable in some f the city churches lately that many of the women are forfttintf to re moe their hats during the service, which might be taken or not taken to nit'an, that Mr. Sunday's influence is losing its grip. However, it isn't. And what the Chamber of Commerce is doing now is th mere application of a similar psychological principle to the civic affairs of the city. Do not be afraid that things will drop back into the old rut as soon as the civic evangelism stops. It won't. A few may grow careless, and tired, anil forget to re move their hats sometimes when the Chamber of Commerce proposes some thing for th city's good, hut like the good women in the churches a little Kcolding from the pastor will bring them back to their senses. We feel safe to predict right now that South Betid will never again revert to that rendition of civic comatose from which it was suffering when the !iiamber of Commerce campaign be gan. When such men as J. D. Oliver and .1. .M. Studebaker, et cetera, take hold f tilings they movt. J. D.

South Bend is yetting together in other words; her men are going to get better ac quainted, and. in consequence there will be 1ss prejudice of the poo I" against the middle-class and the rich, and of the middle-class against the rich and the poor, with more sympa thy and regard for right and justice, as a return quality.

LLT IT Bi: PLAIN. An eastern writer thinks that the old-time standpatters show strong signs of revived confidence and may tackle the future under a flag of re- aetion undisguised. Hut. he asks where will they find a standard bearer. It is to be strongly hoped that the issues in the next presidential cam paign will be clearly defined, and this paper, for one, urges the standpatters not only to unequivocally stand for standpatism but to nominate a ticket that will be standpat beyond all dis pute. The line between reaction and progressiveism should be sharply drawn and squarely toed by the com batants. One lig curse of campaigns has been that the folks didn't clearly understand what they were lighting for or against. Nor will it be very difficult for the standpatters to find a standard bearer. There are Aldrich, Penrose, Koraker, Guggenheim, Rockefeller, jr., Joe Can non and a lot of others who would do. It doesn't make much difference about the age, size or experience. All that's needed is a standard bearer who is big enough to shoot at and who can't pass off his standard as something that it really is not. With the issue between dollars and men. the details about the standpat standard bearer will not be worth worrying about. Tin; iwiiii or antwi:ki The fall of Antwerp may mean little or it may mean much. One thing at least is indicated by it. Germany admits that she failed in her deter mination to take Paris, and probably, failed permanently. She is punishing innocent Delgium on her return trip lis she did in the course of her ad vance. Antwerp may, however, mean much to the kaiser in the way of forestalling an invasion from (Treat Dritain by way of Delgium. Kngland in control of the North sea may bo able to pre vent an attack from Cermany. but liermany lure i in a position to stop the landing of troops from Hritain. It is a stategic move and perhaps not without its compensations. lint the main point is that Uelgium h;s again been made the "gat." Whib a few radical chauvinists are crying out that Germany cares nothing for world opinion though the Ger man government is energetically en deavoring t win the sympathy of neu tral peoples. the fact remains that this sympathy is all the while running more to lielgium. as the "under dog," in preference to any other of the war ring powers. And Germany is largely responsible. Very, naturally as people sympathize with Delgium. they sym pathize against her cnief aggressor, first, and secondly, against the allies whom she has shielded with but very little if any aid. Germany might have made her way into France without violating the neu trality of little iielgiurp had she wish ed. She did it in 1870 and probably n'o'jld have made her close approach to Paris much quicker had she fol lowed the Fame course in 1914. She fa. led to appreciate her host when she eniered Belgium, and the world can not fail to admire the plucky fight that has been put up by King Albert's small handfull of subjects. The last of the important cities of Delgium is now in the hands of the enemy. Her government is shattered a fihifting. dodging, moving caravan, anxiously awaiting a safe place to lo cate. but for their gallant defense of their country, against overwhelming odds, to preserve their independence, the Helgiums stand honored before all mankind. aotiii-:k g. o. i hixwdkil And now it turns out that the state depository law that requires all public officials In every county, town, or township in Indiana, as well as state officers to deposit money in certain banks and turn the interest over to the public treasury, is not a regularly passed law. It is another of those half-breed bills that were signed in 1907 by the speaker of the house, by Hugh Th. Miller, president of the senate, and now republican candidate for United States senator; and. by Gov. Hanly. The bill was signed all right but the journals do not show that it was reg ularly passed. Now will the republican state com mittee be called together again to discuss the advisability of taking Hugh Th. Miller off the ticket because he signed a bill that was not regularly passed by the legislature? It is not likely that Mr. Miller will he taken off the ticket. He made the same mistake that other presiding of ficers have made; or rather he is the victim of mistakes of minor officers in the legislature. and, intelligent j voters will not hold these mistakes against him but republicans should stop prating about the mistakes of others until they are ready to practice TL-tint tVia- Tironfh nn1 nut foru'a r 1 n i clean slate of their own. It is almost paradoxical to think of a Jew in connection with war. As Rabbi Cronbach says, the Jews are ; men of peace, but one in Llurope has demonstrated that in war as well as in peace his people are efficient. He captured a German armored auto, seized a supply train and rendered ex cellent service as a spy. j The Fort Wayne Sentinel hopes that ' citv will emulate .South Hcnd's exam- I ; pie and have a disease prevention pa rade. If so it will be found to the ad vantace of the cause. The parade i made the occasion one of general in- i terest. The republican campaign publicity consists largely at present of reflec tions upon Pres't Wilson, and if con- tinned the democrats will have an easy time. Every knock on Pres't Wilson is a boost for him. t J It was Just like crossing their fin i gors in a game of tag for those 000 I Hritish soldiers to cross the line into ! Holland. They are perfectly safe, but i as soldiers the act denatured them, j They cannot fight again. It will help some for street car pa trons to remember the new regula- I tion which requires cars to stop on the near side. The new order is a safety measure and will be found as con- ' venienl as the old. Mishawaka is so pleased over the success of the country fair that six days will be given to it next year. The biggest Utile city in Indiana seems to have struck a rich lead in promotion. Ostend and the sea is the German ! goal. It means that much nearer Fng i land and more even terms in either ! war or peace competition. The fight , for Ostend will be worth reading about. Dropping bombs on Paris may be in ! accordance with the laws of civilized warfare, but there is nothing in the code of humanity to justify It. It should not be understood that business is being neglected to watch the scoreboards. The fans are work ing in relays. Those Mexicans are mighty care less shooters, and it's going to get them into trouble if they don't watch out. It is a healthful sign that money rates are growing easier, more normal circulation.

IT Is the provlnre of mankind to make odious comparisons concerning the weather and that of the records to give us the correct dope. The com mon verdict is that we never had such an October. The records show a dif ference of only three degrees between October of this year and October of 1913. How soon the months are for gotten when they're past!

The Italian band is the admiration of all, and during the soft, Tsweet strains like the shadowing maze of a summer morn, the music-loving listener is wafted or enveloped in the mystic beyond, beyond the serious, sober in clination of daily cares into the mu sical realms of a divine attitude.

The significance of the Maine elec tion in not that the democrats have apparently elected their governor, captured the legislature and reelected their one congressman. The import ant thing is that nearly two-thirds of the bull moose vote has evaporated, and that the Wilson administration receives unexpectedly strong endorse ment. The simple fact is that a state only a few years ago republican by some 4 0,00 3 is now more strongly ' democratic than it was In the presi dential election two years ago. Then the combined Taft and Roosevelt vote was 7 5,033. This year it is apparently somewhat less than that, while the democratic vote shows a gain of lb per cent. In the 18 per cent democratic in crease there mut have been a consid erable accession from real progres sive. Maine, it is also to be remembered, is a state where attack was particu larly strong? on the democratic tariff policy for free food-stuffs and where large shipbuilding interests for the coastwise trade were ugly, on account of the Panama tolls question. Repub lican campaigning made the utmost of these factors, and, of course, of the business dullness. Rut they found that the voters were not to be fooled. -Worcester (Mass.) Post. Tin: m i :sii i:ts tkumimi. Any policy is entitled to be Judged by its results: and by that test the president's Mexican policy is splen didly vindicated.

The president and the secretary of state were rather lonesome in adher ing to the policy that has issued in this bloodless fashion; but when they look across at Furope they are en titled to deep satisfaction. This country is horrilied by the Eu ropean slaughter. Everybody is hor rified by war after it begins; yet only a few months ago we heard a great deal about the merits of taking a Ftrong stand with Mexico, asserting our national dignity and the rest of the rigmarole that meant rows of a trivial cause. Saturday Evening Post. Till; ANTI-TRUST LEGISLATION. Yesterday the house of representa tives, by a vote of 244 to 5 4, adopted the conference report on the Clayton i anti-trust bill. As the senate nas ai ; readv acted favorably, the bill only needs the signature of the president to make it a law. Twenty-two repub licans and six progressives voted with the democrats in favor of the confer ence report. There have been so m.'inv rh.i mres in the measure that it i has been dittk ..It to keep track of them. There is no uouot tnai me oiu. as n emerged from the conference commit tee, is less drastic than it was in its original form. We do not think that this is to be regretted.

There U necessarily a good leal of experiment in it. If we tind ! that it N not adequate we can easily ; enough strengthen it. Put a begin- ning has been made und a promising one.

The confidence reposed in him by ; the nation when it elected him cnief magistrate has grown since he has ' been in otiice. The public has found that he has justified, and more than justitied, its contidence and he is to day stronger with the public than ever before, notwithstanding the fact that I he has been through some ditticult and trying experiences as president. The success of his Mexican policy ak ne. :a policy followed in spite of criticism, calumny and ridicule, has given him the support of hundreds of thousands of oters.

With every other mab citizen and every female a poet, hearts are continually united and the call of the printed word is loud. As, for in stance, in the present mighty cam paign against the five "D's" dust, dirt, dampness, darkness, drink. Dis ease Prevention day, it was. last Fri day, and all Indiana turned out to march in aid of the cause. Floats ; and banners, schoolgirls dressed in I white carrying mottoes, trumpets, bands, made a great day already m?m- , orable through these orders issued by : the state board of health: "Let every home, each front yard and back yaid, the rears of stores, and all streets and alleys be made special ly clean for Disease Prevention day. Let each person wear clean clothen on that day, take a bath, put on a clean shirt, clean socks and clean collar, and get his shoes shined. Get a hair cut and a shave, wash your hands and face, clean your finger nails, and don't sit on the sidewalk. Let everybodv be clean and talk cleanliness and health." In short, all Indiana took a bath. Nor did progress rest her wearied limbs here. After the scrubbing and polishing and parading came (dura tion, when such pithy little thoughts as these were inculcated upon the Indiana mind: "The only good fly isthe dead fly." "Well kept alleys pay better divi dends than well kept cemeteries." "Public health is public wealth." "Pat the rat and swat the fly." "Don't take patent medicines." "All the time is clean-up time." "Dut, dirt. dampness, darkness, drink, will always kill." We envy Indiana, far more than all her thousar.d novelists, her faith in ideas and her ability to make them work. New York T tribune. KEEP YOUR HOME FREE FROM DUST Dust is the great carrier of disease germs. The smallest amount of dust carries millions of germs. Every time you sweep you raise great quan tities of dust and distribute it to all parts of the house. It settles on the furniture then your dust rag scatters the same germs again, thus transferring from place to place instead of dis posing of them. The only sanitary means of sweeping is w'ith a vacuum sweeper. An ELECTRIC vacuum cleaner, on account of the great suction, will draw the dust and germs into a tank or bag and these are then emptied and DESTROYED. With an Electric Cleaner you not only rid yourself of the dust but do away with hard back-breaking labor no need to take up and beat carpets, or remove furniture. In following the lessons learned, from the disease prevention exhibition, think over care fully the wonderful opportunity afforded by Electricity, for cleanliness and purity. Remember for already built houses we furnish the necessary wiring FREE of cost with every job of fixtures we supply.
