The amazlr.fr victory over Hülsa na, was largely the vork of tho erbian., whuv country Uulsaria had verrun and devastated an 1 who. e population th Hul- i,'arians and Austro-I lun'urians had done thtir leht to exterminate. An army without a country has re Lon;jered and reconstituted its fatherland. We can ;magino the Joy with which every Serbian in that ralLant little army pursued the retreating foe and ddd mile after mile to the territory redeemed by his iAjonet. No sooner had we besrun to appreciate the tremen dous Halkan drama than it proceeded to repeat itself in Hels?Ium. The litt! Helffirn army struck, and in three tlayn nearly doubled th area of Helian territory clung" to po tenaciously for the past four years. These chum pions of a conquered nation .advanced mile after mile, steadily and irresistibly. They smashed the. strongest German defens-s. They beat Germany' bet. They took thousands upon thousands of Hun prisoners. Still their victorious advance poes on. That Helffian army is hav ing th'i time of its life-. "Revenge H mine; I will repay, s,ith th Lord.

More surprising than the discovery of a gasoline shortage is the announcement of a threatenrT famino in kerosene. Nearly everybody has suppose thaj there was plenty of kerosene In the country, and would con tinue to be plenty.

There is a rapidly growing demand for kerosene ns fuel to save coal and gas. More people than ever before are counting on kvriono stoves for emergency heating this winter.

She seems to have proved her point. lier conclusion, she says, was based on otücial figures for French military mortality in the second half of irl". and on New York City's infant mortality reports for 1317. In the half-year of fighting referred to, the total los.-cs of the French army, including missing and pris eners as well as killed, wa only a little more than one percent of the men engaged. That period included the great Somme drie, the fall drive of the Germans ! gainst Verdun and other big military operations.

I iin cinnr or Tin: oimin of thi: pi:hl Gitin ass. (Fort Wayne Jcumal-Gazette.) Whenever the public wantg to know what John Pier pont Morgan thinks it reads what George Harvey, his vassal, writes in the North American Review and then it knows. Fvery enemy of the profiteer in the realms of Big Business has beep constantly maligned and lied about by this supercilious intellectual snob. Every sin gle one of the great war leaders who have made possi ble the miracle of our achievements has been perse cuted by his poisoned pen. Because Pres't Wilson had too much respect for public opinion to place him in the cabinet, he has assailed the president, directly and in directly when he was not damning with faint praise. He it was who first discovered that Daniels is a "nincapoop," a "country editor," and incompetent, a sissy, and the shameful fusillade of misrepresentath es and falsehoods which for a time colored public opinion were of his make. Mr. Daniels was net popular with the element on which the colonel thrives. Mr. Daniels scoHrged the big grafters from his department, saved to the people mil lions of dollars that were thereby lost to the crooks, and that was In bad taste. Now the public knows and concedes that everything that Harvey wrote about Daniels was a lie. A year and more ago Harvey beean his silly attacks on Sec'y Baker, following the line laid down in his assaults on Daniels, and inspired by the same sinister motives. When Baker promised 500,000 men in France before the year was out, the colonel ridiculed, lambasted, and denounced. Now we have almost 2.000,000 men in France with the practical certainty that before the year is out we shall have live times the number of soldiers across that Baker promised. Mr. Harvey was as poor a prophet as patriot. When Baker went to Fra nce the first time the colonel wrote that he had served his country by going away. It has since developed that the colonel sometimes writes words of wisdom by mistake. For Baker ar ranged for the brigading of our troops with those of our allies, and Baker submitted on behalf of the unifi cation of command the document pronounced by Lloyd George the most "remarkable military document of the war." And on the strength of that document we have a unified command. Now Baker is again in France. In his so-called "war weekly," Harvey has something characteristically inane to say upon the subject. Take this; "An unconfirmed rumor comes by grapevine telegraph (probably Mr. Morgan's private wire) that when he was witnessing the beginning of the great American drive at St. Mihiel, one of the very ablest public olficials that the president has ever known began to realize that the war is not r.,0 00 miles away." And in another place: "We must not forget that the great victory at St. Mihiel was won in spite of tho fact that the secretary of war was present. Had he not been there, there is no telling what might have hap pened." And in another place: "Thank goodness the pacifist secretary of war was three thousand mil's away. We do not say that if he had been here the president would not have taken the stand he did against the Bridge port strikers." Such twaddle might have been expected half a cen tury a:ro from some coarse, ignorant editor of the for est, but in the North American Review it is a revela tion. Such trashy contributions to the literature of the war are beneath reply. They can only make an impression upon the man who is as great an ass as the. colonel. Ar.d now we have an indication of how the colonel's fuiminations against the war administration of the president is received in army circles in the following letter: "Sir: Sor.ie time ago I wrote asking you for a nmiVt r of copies of the War Weekly to be used on reading tables of our Y. M. C A. buildings at the r.axal training station. You very kindly replied of fering to send r.s 11 copies each week and during all these weeks they have been coming regularly. I war.? to thank you for your courtesy and gen erosity in sending these copies. "At the same time, however. I nm going to ask ycu to discontinue them. My reason I may state (,uite frankly. We have no objection to any paper that dif:ers with the administration politically, but when a paper assumes the attitude toward our government policy that the War Weekly is assum ing, especially in a critical time like the present, it seems to me very ui wise for us to put that pa l r into the hards of the sailors in Fncle Sam's service; and. therefore, while we appreciate your kmdness we shall not be able to use this paper on our reading tables any longer.

OF PRESIDENTS UTTERANCE 1 Editor The News-Times: Your editorial anent the latest presidential message to the world was. indeed, timely. It emphatically called attention both to the publicity and the thought that Pres't Wilson's utterances merited, the publicity and thought, or rather the lack of these, that they actually received. Like yourself I deeply deplore that par tisanship and indifference should prevent great masses of the Amer ican people from becoming intimate with the workings of the president's J conscience. j I deplore this all the more in vie?; of the fact that the blessing of Wil son's leadership that otherwise might accrue to the American peo ple are through sheer indifference, sloth, and wilfulness lost. .In the heat of the fight and in our eager ness to win we often appeal to hatred, prejudice, falsehood and ig norance. These dim our visions, dwarf our souls, and becloud the sacred aims for which the blood of thousands of Americans will make the fields of France fertile. Thus blinded we often speak most glibly of revenge ami extermination, and thoughtlessly condone cruelty and inhumanity. Needles to say that thereby we ourselves become Prus sianized and Inflict lasting harm upon our nation. But if the American people would commune more frequently and more earnestly with their peerless leader they would never he in danger of wallowing in the gutter of Prussian- TO CHRISTMAS IU VERS. f..

Send all packages through the mails before December 5th in order that there may be no competition with the more es- sential malls. The same applies to express packages. 5. Avoid shipping or mailing bulky articles. 6. Carry home your pur- chases, avoid special deleries. pay cash and do not ask for approvals. ism. For the president is above the vulgar, the low passions, and the ultimately-self-degrading. Hene)ver appeals to the primitive in us in or der to render us fit and willing to make sacrifices. . With firm faith in the power of the noble and the ideal to stir the American people to heroism and self-immolation, he ever imparts to our purpose a sublime and humanitarian content. For he knows that it is "Righteousness that exalts a nation." And he wishes us to be exalted and not dwarfed. Our president has emphasized this in nearly all of his unexcelled mes sages. An appreciative nation would have long ago committed thes- to memory and daily recited their quin tessence ns a religious creed. They would have done this particularly with his last public utterance. In it our president attains a loftiness of expression, the like of which no other statesman has ever reached. He spurns the old manner in which congrsres of nations made treaties. No professional diplomats says he what the revolutionary thought! but the various peoples through their democratically elected representa tives should make their will articu late; not self interest, but impartial justice must permeate international contracts; not retaliation, hut recon ciliation with the erstwhile foe. and honest reconstruction for the rene fit of nil, should be tho only price of peace. Such thoughts, when car ried out, must inevitably usher In a millenial era. The American people will be called upon, nay, is being called upon, to usher hi that era. Why" then should it be held, through indifference and wilfullne, lr ig norance of these epoch making thoughts? In order that all of us here might he intelligently informed with re gard to the advanced thoughts of our chosen leader I would suggest that the following steps be taken: 1. Mass meeting should be ar ranged, at which the president's ideas and Ideals should be classified commented on, and discussed. 2. The last as well as the pre eeding and following messages jf our president should be brought be fore the attention of high school and college students in a manner that will elicit general interest. 3. Ali ministers should be asked to discuss, with deference and re- cpect, the president's messages from their pulpit. The public in particular should make the spreading of the presi eient's visions its sacred task. From it the voice of truth and progress has ever rung out most clearly, and Pres't Wilson's voice is, as the whole globe knows, the peculiar Instrument of truth ami progress. From it the accents of the justice-Intoxicated prophets have ever been reechoed and Pres't Wilson in his passion for justice and humanity deserves a prominent place among the greatest cf prophets. Ar.d witft the public forum, school and pulrit ail united to carry aloft the torch of progress kindled by our president, the light of his new visions will fill the whole earth, bringing good cheer, warmth, and strengt'-, to the people of the new and the old world.
