Every-' thing in our country has been upon so large a scale and op portunities for comparison with other nations-have been so imperfect that we have fallen into a habit of brag. But if we have the big head, it is a comfort to believe that we: also have the big heart. Bad as an ignoble pride is. it would be wicked not to be a little bit set up at remembering the response we are mak ing to the appeals for help that fall upon our ears from every quarter of the globe. We have been spending mil lions of dollars in gifts to the victims of injustice and mis fortune in Poland, Belgium, France and Armenia. \v e have been lending billions to our allies in the war. We have raised a mighty army and consecrated a mighty navy to avenge what we call a mighty colossal wrong to our neighbors across the sea and now we are submitting to a tax of twenty billion dollars to carry on this crusade, with out a murmur. Twentv billion dollars! No human mind can form an adequate conception of such a sum of money. It is an ab solutely staggering amount. And yet nobody complains and nobody refuses. We read of our National Congress voting away mighty appropriations every day as to make imagination dizzy, and yet we applaud the deeds. We are not trying to establish the doctrine that ‘‘might makes right,” for that would be to open an abyss beneath our feet, but we are saving the world, by our actions from this abyss. We must, as a nation and a people, go the limit, holding back nothing. When Ananias and Sappnira sold their field and “held back part of the price,” their economy proved futile and fatal. For us to imitate their example will he to suffer their penalty. Let us “have a heart!” Let us furnish the world the greatest example of magnanimity of all the ages. Everybody can assist in this and one of the smallest ways is to purchase a Liberty Loan Bond. -A___ \ SYMPATHETIC STRIKES To quit an ordinary job out of sympathy for a fellow worker who may or may not he getting a square deal, is a common occurrence these days when half the workers Out side appear to be on strike. Rut when a man resigns a po sition such as that of collector of customs for the port of The Chesterfield blend has in it the highest-grade Turkish tobacco that grows.

It is going too far when government officials—headliners at that take1 up the fad. If federal officials at Washington take up the hobby, we need not be surprised to hear, some line day, that the secretary of the treasury has gone on strike because con gress refused to re-kalsomnie his office and install a new heating system. The secretary of state may walk out in sympathy for the man who runs the elevator at the capi tol, and the secretary of agriculture may walk out because the government refuses to make “Coming through the Rye” the national anthem. But getting back to Malone. We can t imagine any thing that yvould make us quit a remunerative4 job like that of collector of the port unless they stopped our pay. Given a salary such as his, yve yvould fret about ‘ \ otes for women/—(Fairbanks Times.) Gee, fellahs, they are on the big diamond today in Chi cago and “what's the score?” ■ •Just as if Kerensky didn’t have enough troubles—and now it is reported he has gone and got married.
