Tin: cotton racmijrM a;.i.. The cotton situation is In-ginning to worry the south aain. when it hasn't got through worrying ahout the lis Iosal of last year's crop, i-'ajs the Augusta. Chronicle: The sohmn fact is that if the Hritish mhark'o is nt lifted lo foro another cotton crop in thrown on thf market, the south will he in i worso fix than it has be-n fiimo the Civil war. I'ntil recently there ?rpmcj no se- riourf catisii for alarm. The pro.-tra- tiou of the -tton-rwinic industry anil tho rcsultint; business paralysis of the south, hrmiuht on ),y tho cloning of the foreign market in the t-arly months of the war. had been largely overcome. During the winter and goring the cotton moved to Kurope in it steady volume, risirm' far ahove tlie average in some months a.s event ually to brin the total sales almost up to normal. The hugo crop of l;,ouo, 000 hales has by no means nil been Fold yet, but there has been no uch disaster as the pessimists antici pated. Tho new crop is expected to total ".GOO.OOu bales less than last year. The o ernment's advice to reduce the cot ton area and raise more variegated crops has been largely followed. Tho acreage, has been reduced from last year's :; 7 . i ;, u 0 to moo. The estimated crop would be near the .iv rrage for recent years, and if the for eign cotton market were not chaiminj; so ominously it would presumably bring about the average income. Hut (I re at Britain's action Ls making the remunerative disposal of this year's cotton, a crop second in importance only to our wheat, a very doubtful matter. Britain, without putting cotton on the contraband list, has been holding tip cargoes destined for enemy and neutral countries until the foreign market is demoralized. It is feared that the recent decision of the (ler man governi!ient to take control of all tho raw cotton in Germany may result in Britain declaring the product absolute contraband. which would leave us w ithout legal recourse. Mean while, our government is bound to use every possible means to induce Great Britain to stop interfering with our customary exportation of cotton, at least to the neutral countries with which we have an inalienable right to carry on our trade. "Uokst form or ami:iucax- ISM." There was an echo oi the Thaw case in London the othvr day, of a sort that isn't nattering to the bench and bar of the United States. A prisoner was on trial charged with having drowned three "wives in a bathtub (consecutively) for the sake of col- itctin? their life insurance. Two phy sicians were called in by the prosecu tion to testify to the prisoner's mental condition. That seems to have been a novelty in English court procedure. The attorney for the defense, in his address to the jury, declared: "Such medical evidence opens the door to the worst form of American ism In the administration of justice. Suppose the prisoner had not been a pauper, as he is, but was possessed of unlimited means, like many recent American prisoners-. lie could have secured experts to say that the cause of death was other than the one given by the experts for the crown." At that very moment the long drawn battlo of the experts over the sanity of Harry Thaw was at its height again, with no hope of immediate or conclusive' decision. It is nearly ten years since Stanford White was shot, nnj yet the court.s don't seem toknow whether his slave- was sane at that time, or has been sane since, or is sane now, and are still uncertain what should be done with him. The case of tho London murderer was definite ly disposed of within a month of the commission of the crime that led to his arrest. An even more flagrant example of the "Americanism" sneered at by the British barrister, though in a slightly different form, is seen in the case of Lieut. Becker of the New York police force. He is still alive and strhing to escape the penalty for hij crime, al though the four moneyless ami friend less gunmen who acted as his accom plices and were convicted on the same basio evidence were years ago sent with short shrift beyond the nach of bought testimony and reprieving tech nicalities. Till: MOTin.K-IN-LAU. Fur countless ages the mother-in- law has l'ccn the ictim of decayed jestF. until it has become one of the most melancholy subjects in existence. And yet many a good man has deep affection and profound respect for his mother-in-law, and is not ashamed of It. Lauirh at him too. if you will. He knows that the one girl w hom in tho sweet freshness of otith he chose, from among all others to bkss his life owe.s her loel Hlities to the woman who is now his mother-in-law, but was first and 5s ahvas lur moth er.

Sunday for tfce week by carrier lp Pallr. alnpl copy Suo(Ttr, single op7 ...3c through it, and turned away, with flooding eyes, and fainting heart, to we p in heartache and loneliness. ' Very funny-eh? Well, there fare men weak enough to rt member such things and so blind to humor as not to see- at all that the mother-in-law is nothing but a contin uous farce. Yes, yes, there are men strong men, wholesome-minded men who realize that in sickness, misfortune, distress, the mother-in-law is the first to come and the lust to go, ever the readiest to .orve and to sacrifice, ever the most loyal, the most untiring and the most sympathetic. For she brings her heart with her. and her heart is love. And, too. many a man lias known her to linger, white-faced hut calm eyed, to speak words of courage to him beside their dead hers and his; and then, hiding her heartbreak, take the mother's place with the mother less children, and, forgetting that she is a farce, become a ministering and sustaining angel. Let those who can. laugh at the mother-in-law: let them perpetually bandy back and forth the stale jokes and gihes in ridicule of her. l or there are some men who can't laugh at the mother-in-law. In the innermost secret place of their soul, there is a shrine sacred to her, where love and gratitude give worship. iiklp! iii:li: Prof. William D. Amies proclaims that western American literature is i;one forever, writers of today attempt ing to depict the western life being mero imitators. I'rof. Amies is associate professor of American literature at university of California, and he should be one of the last to yell about western liter ature's sinking to the fishes. Ho ought to throw out a life-prererver, a rope, or an anchor. How can the ordinary man be expected to dive in and rescue literature, when the professors merely sit oir the dock and wail? SICK CATS. Says a self-stvled "Heartbroken Lady" in a letter to" a Xcw York newspaper: Do you think it is fair to bring a pet cat to a hospital and after paying $2 for treatment not to get any, but next day to find said cat lying in a dirty, wet, cold cage, in a dying condition, with not even a drink of water? Yet there arc pet de who talk so much about what is done for the prevention of cruelty to animals! My cat died without treatment, the assistant doctor not being man enough to say he could not handle the case, and only caring for the two-dollar hill. I thrnk it is a shame. Please put this in your paper, so that no body else's pot will have to suffer the same way. It's a beastly shame, there no doubt of it: A person can't help wonder ing, however, what would bo thought of such a letter if it appeared in a London, Paris. Berlin, or Petrograd newspaper. The civilized world has got pretty much past grieving for cats. There are sterner things to think about. Any normal mart or woman called upon to weep for "a cat lying in a dirty, wet, cold cage in a dying con dition" is apt to think involuntarily of the tens of thousands of men lying in worse plight than that between the tiring lines where there is no respite either to relieve the wounded or bury the dead. iS DO Pi: IIAPPINKSS? One Dr. Arthur I. Blunt of Chicago was charged with aiding drug users in violating the Harrison anti-narcotic law. His attorneys, seeking a writ of habeas corpus, argued before Judge Kenesaw Mountain Imdis of the Unit ed States court that the Harrison law is unconstitutional in that it denies to drug users the pursuit of happiness. This opens an interesting Held of speculation. Is hitting the pipe really the pursuit of happiness guaranteed to all American citizens under their constitution? After they have hit it do they get happiness? Is not all indulgence in crime and vice open to the same argument? If you think it will make you happy to kill your neighbor, doesn't the con stitution guarantee you the right to pursue your joy? Haven't you a right. j by the same august document, to drown your sorrows in drink, to burn your own house or your neighbor's in order to roast your pig, to steal, riot and make a nuisance of yourself gen erally, if thereby you think you can attain your heart's desire? What is happiness, anyhow? Is it the mere sensual pleasure of the mo- j ment. followed, as all such pleasure.- are. by more than proportionate pain? Or is it the satisfaction which comes to a self-reliant but sclf-con- j trolled being, doing his work in free-. uom and tempering hus own rights to his neighbor's comfort? The pursuit, of h.ippiness is our right. Hut what is happiness? Judye Landis denied the writ, and Dr. Blunt was at last accounts pur suing his in jail. Ai ms roit ui ral Mail. The all conquering automotilo is now replacing the horse in the. rural mail service. On July 1 i'Ao pioneer auto delivery started on two routes radiating from Quarryville, Pa. Other motor routes have been planned, to ;errin next month. The postmaster general has already signed orders for more than 100 machines, to cover nearly 6,000 miles of post routes. The service will be extended Just as fast as the department's resources and the conditions of the highways per mits. Of these two considerations, the latter is the more important. It is a comparatively simple matter for the government to replace the present box-like rural carriage wagons with automobiles. The original cost is little more than the cost of horses and wagons. Their operation is no more expensive, and their elliciency is far greater. Horses, however, have the advantage of being able to set through almost any sort of roads if they have to, while the motor cars, though they are faster and can cover more ground in a day, cannot take chances on roads that are not kcri in good condition the year around. The adoption of autos for the country service will therefore be another powerful incen tive to further the good roads move ment. Farmers almost everywhere Should h0 Willing tO makC thC Im provements necessary to gain such postal facilities, especially since, bet ter highways will amply repay their cost in other ways. MFDICAGO SATIVA. T he virtues of alfalfa have long been trumpeted by the federal de partment of agriculture, but now the medical profession has taken to boost ing this particular brand of fodder. At a national convention in Chicago, Dr. Alexander Blackwood of that city announced that alfalfa is just as good for human beings as it is for -cattle. In fact, he declares it is not only a nu tritious food product, but has valua ble medicinal properties. He experimented with seventeen students at the Hahnemann Medical college, feeding them a compound la beled "Medicago Sativa" which is merely the Latin name for alfalfa ami they not only digested the stuff and throve on it, but had the:r appe tites for other provender so stimulated j that tney were impelled to eat five or six rr.cvls a day. Alfalfa may come in time to form an integral part of every family meal and restaurant menu, and there may be an alfalfa bed in every garden. But economically, the discovery doesn't seem to be an unqualified blessing. Even if it cures indigestion, as Dr. Blackwood says, we're not going to save much money by a hay diet that drives us to eat six square meals a day. "Why not discover something that will make one meal a day suf fice? BUSINESS AM) MILITIA ORGANI ZATIONS. It is a difficult matter to develop efficient militia and national guard organizations. One of the worst ob stacles is the trouble militia men com monly experience in getting away from their employments for military maneuvers. . The present critical diplomatic sit uation should have a lesson for busi ness men. They usually realize theo retically that a body of militia is a necessity. But when it conies to let ting this or that employe have a week's vacation to attend camp, they are apt to balk. Militia, men can not get much mili tary practice merely by drilling in halls and on the streets of their own town. They need to get out into tho country, practice the routine of war, and get an idea of what actual fight ing would be like. A couple of weeks a year would be none too much. When a man takes an oath to obey the orders of his superiors in case of war, he is making a patriotic contri bution greater than anything in mere money. The employer is not going half way in patriotism, unless he is willing to contribute by giving the recruit leave to attend camp. LONG SCHOOL VACATIONS. All over the country colleges are thronged with students for summer courses, business schools arc running about as. usual, music pupils are study ing music and private educational in stitutions of all kinds are continuing their work. And all over the country the public schools are closed for three or four months, great and costly edu cational plants are lying unproductive, the continuous progress of instruction is interrupted and millions of children are left in compulsory idleness to roam the streets or burden their dis tracted parents'. The long summer vacation is ration al enough in the country, where boys nd girls have to help with tho farm chores in the summer. In pioneer times nearly all school children had such duties. But that is not a suifl cient reason for turning present-day children out of school for a quarter of a year in the cities. Few of them have any vacation duties. Few of them need so long a rest. Most of them develop into a temporary nui sance to their families and community while the learning of the past year fades from their memories and the power of mental application ebba away. A month's summer vacation would probably be far better for city schools. KICKFD AGAIN. Xow the sultan has decreed the ex pulsion of the secretaries and attaches of the American embassy at Constan tinople as a mark of reprisal for the expulsion of Turkish officials from London. This kicking of Uncle Sam's dog around is getting to be quite a popu lar div. rsion in Furope. The soft answer may turn away wrath, as the Good Book says, but the neutral answer certainly makes a bel ligerent madder than ever. GALAXY Substituting for WANTS TO KKCIPKOCATi:.

( Ohio .State Journal.) The training of the youth of these days seems to be carried on upon the idea that the boy and girl have no inventive genius of their own, and even the opportunity to play must be provided or there won't be any play ing. Thu.s self-reliance is being dis couraged and dependence upon others is made a part of the outfit in life. The right training of youth must put self-reliance as the very first consider ation. Those boys of a former gener ation, who used to contrive all their playthings and originate their own devices for having exercises and fun, are today the captains of industry and the great leaders in the world's trade. Will the boys of today be the leaders of enterprise in the next generation? There are some reasons for doubting it. A boy's play is the best thing in his life, and nothing should stand in its way, but where older hands are su pervising it and telling him how it is to be done and providing the ways and means the very soul is, taken out of it. -V few years ago the boys used to do all the st tits that the colleges have appropriated and changed to somber art or classic tricks. In those days the boys jumped bars, skinned cats, threw big boulders, ran races, turned handsprings, just for the fun of it and never thought of getting their names in the papers or display ing athletic shins. Tin: ' mu;(;y" night. (Cleveland Plain Iealer.) Windows must be open, for other wise life and work are impossible. It is a heavy night, rather hot, very greasy, quite still and dead. The win dows must he left open. and. if ono would work, there must be lights. Around the lights dart and buzz and flutter a dense swarm of mites and bugs. There are little green fellows, and gray fellows and black fellows. They buzz and tlutter most abomin ably, and they alight on your wrists and your nose and your book. They are stupid fellows, too. They do not, like the canny mosquito or the agile 11 y, recognize the approach of an en emy. You may squash them by doz ens or by hundreds, without protest on their part and without ditticulty. They make no attempt to escape. But it really is not worth while to squash them. It is impossible to diminish their numbers. They come from nowhere, and tomorrow morn ing they will be dead: poor, aimless, sticky little bugs, born of the mug giness, and bound nowh'ther. There comes a blundering big beetle, and bumps his, head twice or thrice against the Incandescent globe; then is discouraged, a ral tumbles, sprawling, to the Moor, to kick for half an hour and expire. A dozen "Canada soldiers" flit into the light: transparent, evanescent, spirits of dis comfort. Their life, too. i the span of a single night: and it Us spent in nervous, aimless, tiresome exertion. They are striving after nothing at all, and striving mightily. Exhausted, moribund, scared able to w iggle their antennae, they drop at last. Everything squirms. The human squirms under countless entomological irritations. He prays for a thunder storm, or a cool breeze, or even a visitation of dry heat. Mugginess. to the human, is the most deplorable of atmospheric conditions. But it is in mugginess that the little fellows, who live but a night, find , their great delight. It needs muggi-j ness to bring them forth. From a hu man, utilitarian standpoint, there is no reason for things that i lit about the light and tickle one's neck. But frcm the standpoint of the Hitters there is no excuse for the mountainous hu man who sits in the light and is peevish. So, perhaps, it is a stand off, and the human and the bug are equally uncomprehending of the real reason. PLAYING. IN THE STKFITTS. (Dayton Xews. The Playgrounds association of New York recently arranged that the children might play in the streets of certain portions of the city, the streets being closed to traffic for a certain number of hours a day. It caused some inconvenience to tralfic. perhaps, but it brought a lot of happiness into the lives of many of the little people of the congested centers. Anxious to learn the effect upon the children of the new movement, a dele gation of interested persons visited one of the streets and watched the eliildren at plav. Thev were amazed at one thing that manv of the chil dren "associated guilt with play." That is, the children seemed to WHAT THE PAPERS SAY OF GRINS the Melting Pot sin: has, im:y?

The entire plant of a Pennsylvania asphalt block manufacturing concern is mounted on freight cars, so that it can be taken wherever there is work for it to do. Throughout the world one-fourth of all children die before six years of age. one-half before they are sixteen and one person in 100 lives to see sixty five. A deficit in Italy's trade balance is accounted for in part by the loss of $130,000,000 a year formerly spent by travelers in that countrv and $20,000,- 000 usually sent home from the Fnit ed States by laborer think they were committing a crime to romp and laugh and shout. They had never been permitted to do so be fore, without being chased by tho olti cers. So they could not understand it, and were cowed when any one ap proached, lest they bo punished. This mental attitude upon the part of children is not peculiar to New York. It too frequently exists in the homes. They are "called down" so often for this or that, they are com pelled to move in such circumscribed limits, they are so hampered in their youthful buoyancy, that even in the houses where they abide there is sometimes the fear, the timidness that comes from feeling that they may be punished for playing. FEEDING THE WOULD. (Wheeling Register.) Ollicial figures of the department of commerce disprove the contention of some republican newspapers that ex portation of munitions of war are re sponsible for the unprecedented trade balance of a billion dollars in favor of the United States during the fiscal year ending June o0. They show, on the contrary, that our shipments of foodstuffs, which for the 11 months up to June 1, aggregated $72 4,000,000 in value, had more than anything else to do with the fine showing, the amount of such goods sent abroad during the preceding year having to taled only $ 443,000.000. Increases over the preceding year are shown in different foodstuffs as follows: Wheat, 164,000,000 bushels; oats, 86,000.000 bushels; Hour, 13,000,- 00 0 barrels: fresh beef. 116,0 00,0 00 pounds. Various, packing house prod uct increased in proportion. The fig ures indicate what an important role the Fnited States is playing at present that of the butcher, baker and farm er for belligerent Europe. Our ship ments off munitions, especially shrap nel and heavy shells, arc? said to have only fairly begun. There is every reason to believe that if the war con tinues the American trade balance for the present year will exceed that of last year. YOFK TAXES (JO FI AGAIN. (Kalamazoo Telegraph-Press) ".State tax will be 56 per cent high er!" .Michigan is growing. The common wealth cannot wear its swaddling clothes. Expenditures of state gov ernment will grow as the state itself grows: and no taxpayer begrudges the state whatever revenues mav be nec essary to keep it in the forefront. We want progress and we are prepared and willing to "pay the freight." Mich igan ha4 no desire to be penurious. But! Michigan also has no desire to pay a dollar for less than a dollar's elliciency and net results. Michigan has a right to be dissatisfied unless and until the public dollar approxi mates as much "value received" as the privato dollar. This latter happy result will never come so long as state appropriations are made in a veritable financial riot. (The wonder is that hard working and conscientious legislators do as well as they do with an antiquated system that wouldn't be tolerated five seconds in any private business in the state. ) This happy result will never come so long as the state utterly ignore. its unit purchasing power and splatters its disburse 4nents through scores of unrelated m. uncoordinated branch es and depar:ments. The key to the situation is a com prehensive "budget system" and some approximation of a system of "cen tral purchase and disbursement." These sound like tremendously un interesting and unsentimental propo sition?. Hence, when legislatures are in session, few are the citizens who can be roused to more than a. casual inter est in such self evidently righteous re forms. Citizens are "too busy" to "get busy." They have forgotten last year's tax: and noxt year's tax is months away. "o; why worry! And the leg islature, mistaking popular silence for popular lethargy, sits and resit. and never moves into "budget system" action. Hence: "State tax will be 56 per cent higher."' If a state tax could be levied and collected jut once while the state leg islature were in session. Mich-gan would have a "budget system," etc.. etc.. in SO days. Then cause" and "effect" would bo sufficiently cMse to gether to be entirely visible to the naked eye. Cumulative millions in state saving? are waiting -jpon these reforms. How many more times must these summer headlines roll round ' State tax will be 36 per cent V-jher" before the reforms arrive? 1 aae i mi a by are Electricity is safe, sanitary and convenient, as well as the coolest illuminant on the market.
