L'0 years ago, is the only conclusion
that can be drawn.
If this is true either -railroads are
a failure or railroad methods are a

railroads is ;i failure. How different
is such a trend as this from the func
tion the railroad ought to perform.
Mankind has thought the world
was growing smaller and that all men
are growing closer together, geo
graphically. The old days when the
man in one county never saw the peo
ple of another county and did not
even know their language are gone,
men have said. The railroad and the
telegraph, with the travel they make
possible ar.d with the diffusion of
knowledge through such mediums as
ncw.papt-rs which they minister to,
jire destroying space and provincial
ities, has been our vision.
P.ut it is true that people do not

something to preside over a court for
as long as Judge Van J.'leet presided
over the superior court of this city,
and be able to retire with the full re
spect and confidence of the lawyers
that have practiced before him. It is
even more to be able to quit with the
full respect and confidence of tho
litigants whose differences he has ad
justed. Judge Van Fleet gives way to
George W. Ford, elected last fall. It
is not the only one of the changes
about the county building to take

it is Sheriff Charles Bailey and Clerk

new faces to inhabit county offices,
while Sheriff Edw. Swanson and Clerk
Frank Chistoph, appropriate an "Fx."
Treasurer Fred W. .Martin succeeds
himself, while Auditor Clarence Sedg
wick and Recorder Noah Lehman
hold onto their jobs for another year.
It is only in the case of Judge Van
Fleet, however, that there was any
thing formal about his departure, due
mainly, no doubt to the dignity of the
office, and, to the fact that there was
an organization to take the matter in
hand. We believe that the bar be

WASHINGTON, Jan. 2. This Eu
ropean war would be a great deal
worse in its local aspects if it were
not for Eddie Savoy.
Eddie is the little old colored man
who has been doortender at the oltice
of the secretary of state since as far
back as anybody can remember.
As a rule his duties are compara
tively simple, even though part of his
work consists of mothering the for
eign ambassadors and other diplo
mats who call to see the secretary of
state.
Just now, however, the handling of
foreign ambassadors is a delicate
tUk, for one must be constantly on
the alert to prevent a meeting between
any two representatives of the na
tions now at war. If two ambassa
dors from the warring countries were
to meet face to face they would not
speak, but would look off into spaco
with the abstracted air of a man
trying to make himself think he is
somewhere else.
This is that custom and precedent
may bo fulfilled. The ambassadors
are all friendlv enough with one an
other persona!.' but if they were to
nod or speak, U would only be an
other step to passing tho time of day.
And if they did that they might ex
change small talk. From small talk
they might go to war talk, and that
would not'do at all. Thus It happens
that although Ambassador Jusserand
of France, dean of the corps, and Am
bassador von Bernstorff of Germany
aro good friends and much seen to
gether in time of peace, either one
would be horrified to be ushered into
the room with the other one just now.
To prevent such a scene is part of the
task of Eddie Savoy, and he teems
with pride over the fact that so far
he has been successful. It is no small
job, either. Ambassador Spring-Rice
of Great Britain does not like to b
shown into the diplomatic waiting
room at all, even though none of the
representatives of the nations at war
are there. He prefers to avoid con
tact with the diplomats of all other
nations whatsoever, lest somebody
should accidentally start up an un
pleasant conversation.
o that makes one less room in
which to put the British ambassador,
and adds to the responsibilities of
Eddie i-'avoy. As a rule Ambassador
Spring-Bice is ushered directly into
the privato office of Mr. Bryan.
When his visit is over Eddie Savoy
must make certain that no other am
bassador is lurking about the hallway
or anterooms.
Occasionally Eddie has to shift an
ambassador from one room to another
to clear a path, and he does so in a
quiet, motherly fashion that is dis
tinctive. An ambassador always feels
that he is amply protected from em
barrassing situations so long a.s Eddio
Savoy ha-s him in charge.
Only once In his long career has
Eddie allowed two ambassadors to
meet while their nations were at war,
and that was during the Japo-Russian
war. The Japanese ambassador was
walking thoughtfully along the cor
ridor Just outside the ottice of tho
secretary of state when he chanced to
look up and found himself staring into
the face of the Russian ambassador.
Before he stopped to think of prece
dents the Japanese man nodded.
"I did not nod to the man, but to
his position as dean of the corps,"
insisted the Japanese.
So strong is the aversion to a
chance meeting among tho diplomats
of that warring nations that none of

THE superstitious and pessimist
will find common cause for apprehen
sion in the beginning of 1915 on Fri
day, an evil omen greatly augmented
by the fact that the year will end on
Friday. April and July also end on
Friday and October begins on that
day. But the optimistic and non
superstitious will welcome the test
that after all Friday will be only tho
unusual usual this year.

"Bill's In Trouble."
(By Request.)
I've got a letter, parson, from my son
'way out west.
An my ol heart is heavy as an anvil
in my breast.
To thnk the boy whose fut.ur I had
once so proudly planned
Should wander from the path o right
an come to sich an end!
I told him when he leffus, only three
short years ago.
He'd find himself a-ploln' in a
mighty crooked row
He'd miss his father's counsel, an his
mother's prayer, too;
But he said the farm was hateful, an
he guessed he'd have to go.
I know that's big temptation for a
youngster in the west.
But I believed our Billy had the cour
age to resist;
An' when he left I warned him o the
evcrwaitin' snares.
That you find like hidden sarpints in
life's pathway e very whe res.
But Bill he promised faithful to be
koerful an' allowed
He'd build a reputation that'd make
us mighty proud;
But it "oems as if my counsel sort o'
faded from his mind.
An' now the boy's in trouble of th-
very wustest kind.
His letters come so seldom that
somehow sort o' knowed
That Billy was a-trampin' on a mighty
rocky road,
But never once imagined ho would
bow my head in shame,
An in tho dust'd waller his ol' daddy's
honored name.
He writes from out in Denver, an the
story's mighty short,
I Just can't tell his mother, it'll cruch
her poor ol heart;
An so I reckon, parson, jou might
break the news to her
Bill's in the leglslatur, but he doesn't
say what fur. Unidentified.

that as the burden of sacrifice in

Short Talks on Advertising
BY R. S. NEWMAN.
It is continuous effo. t that pays in advertising as in
everything; else. A business man doesn't keep his
store open one day in the week or one week in the
month, or three months in the year. If he advertises
in such a way, that is the impression people will get.
It is continuousness that has made the "oak leaf
popular in a local furniture store's advertising. Peo
ple are very forgetful. They have to think Pretty
hard to remember the vice presidential candidate two
campaigns back, and yet he was pretty well adver
tised at the time. It has been pretty truly said that the
time to advertise is all the time, in business there is
no such thing as standing still. A business man will
either go forward or backward. Hven if you do just
as much business the coming year as you did during
the one just closed, some other fellow is doing more
business and is getting ahead of you.
Each day's efforts should be to exceed the sales for
the corresponding day a year ago. The only sure way
to do it is to advertise. Advertise in busy times be
cause the iron must be struck while it is hot. Adver
tise in dull times to heat the iron. It can be done.
EDINBURGH, Scotland, Jan. 1.
A letter has just been received here
from a French woman whose home
is In SoLssons, long one of the hotly
contested points on the French bat
tlefield. She describes to her Scotch
friend the misery of the inhabitants
of the city. The Germans, it seems,
were driven out, but not beyond the
range of thf.r big guns. The
French woman did not desert her
home. She says:
"We have to remain in our house,
for we really could not bring our
selves to leave it, and all our posses
sions, although most of the inhabi
tants have left the town.
"For three months the bombard
ment of the town has continued,
sometimes for days and nights with
out ceasing, and then we hide in the
cellar you may guess how happy we
are. We simply live in dread of the
shrapnel which is going to fall on our
house and set it on lire and bury us
in the ruins.
"You have no idea what terrible
engines of war the Germans have.
Seeing everything around us burn and
fall to pieces, we live in a sort of
nightmare. The house of Dubois
(next to us) is in ruins, and St. Jean
des Vignes is practically a heap of
stones indeed, everything in our
quarter is demolished. You will be
heartbroken to see it when you next
come. Fortunately our huse has so
far escaped, though all the tiles are
smashed and the windows broken by
the force of the detonations. It is not
worth replacing them, but you may
imagine how comfortable we are in
this cold weather, and the terrible
thing is that no one can say how
long it will last.
Germans Take Quarries.
"On their way back from the
Marne the Germans took possession
of all the quarries along the hills to
the north, which they had carefully
prepared on their way south with
concrete and iron, making of them
veritable forts. They are terribly
clever, and now they are shelling
Soissons from the quarries of Pasley,
Clamecy and Crouy, from which they
can also dominate all the main roads
from the town. There is absolutely
no chance of taking them by sur
prise, because from there they see
everything that happens. They have
got the light railway to Coucy, which
enables them to revictual from the
rear. From Coucy and Chauny they
have the main lines right to Germany,
so that they can bring up reinforce
ments as they require them.
"They have driven away all in
habitants, and they take everything
movable they come across., We had
samples of this in Soissons, where
they remained for two full days. We
had 18 billeted on us. Every unoc
cupied house they broke open and
took away everything in thaJr wagons
and automobiles. Nothing that could
be lifted did they spare furniture,
linens, bedding, contents of the cel
lars, everything went, and from the
farms and flour mills they took . all
corn of every kind, flour and all live
stock absolutely a clean sweep.
"It is not a war of soldiers, but of
robbery" and destruction, such as I
suppose the world has never seen,
and which should not be allowed.
Why bombard open, unfortified towns
and villages? But they have said
they will ravish all France. I do not
know what the future has in store for
us, but if we, who have right on our
side, and who have your soldiers and
the Russians with us, lose there is no
more justice in heaven.
Must Walt, Say Soldiers.
"Our troops can only keep them
from advancing and they will tell us
we must wait, but for how long? For
all the winter, perhaps. But we shall j
be dead before it Is over. Quite a t
lot of English soldiers have been j
here fine men and splendid horses
(we have not a horse left in the dis
trict), but now they have left this
quarter and are in the north. They
did well, too, and I am sorry for them
where they are, for with the severe
weather they are going to be very un
comfortable. "We also had some of our own men
from the south, and they were shiver
ing with the cold, for now it is freez
ing hard. I forget to tell you that
Crouy, Cutfies, Vailly and all these
villages you know so well are all
razed to the ground- churches,
houses, everything nothing remains.
"As I write the bombardment
commences afresh and I must run.
The room is shaking and the table
dances. Who knows? It is perhaps
our turn now, for, as I have told you,
we await the shrapnel that is to fin
ish us off. I cannot do housework,
sewing or indeed anything. We take
our meals as rapidly as possible, and
wait for the whiz of the shell which
is to tell us that it is time 1o dash to
the cellar. And to think that it has
been like this since the beginning of
September. We are almost at the
end of our endurance."

these will accept any invitation what
ever, even to a private home, until
they know just what guests will bo
present. And it is extremely rare for
one to accept even then. The chances
of the war being discussed at tho
dinner table are too great.
When this war began Sen. Kern
made up his mind to preserve his
neutrality at any cost.
A day or two ago tho senator sat
eating his dinner at a table with one
or two pro-Germans, and as many
anti-Germans. A pompous person
came along and said:
"I'll make this prediction: Within
30 days the German army will reach
Paris, and within 60 days the Irish will
take London. What do you think
about that, senator?"
Desiring to preserve his neutrality.
Kern, without looking up from his
rice pudding, made this thoroughly
non-committal reply:
"It beats the devil, doesn't it?"
