Commissioner Sanders retrenchment plan, as outlined in yesterday's Journal, met, with instant public approval and was the subject of much favorable comment. While details were not elaborated upon, the fact was made clear that the city will save upwards of $30,000 a year in payrolls without decreasing the efficiency of any department. Commissioner Sanders has given careful thought and study to his plan and is con fident it will do much to relieve the city government of the financial pressure under which it has operated for several years. He also believes the schedule as tentatively ar ranged will enable each of the department to render better service. Economy and efficiency are vatchwords throughout the country just now and that the city commissioners have adopted them should be welcome news to every citizen and taxpayer. While the Sanders' plan will probably be altered in some respects before it is adopt ed, both Mayor Johnson and Commission er Hinrichs have expressed themselves as favoring reduction of the city's operating expenses and it seems certain that an econ omy program will become effective with out delay. of raw material necessary for their manu facture. In this connection it would not be inap propriate to urge that farm utensils be with greater care. A plow left in the grrand all winter is not very good after wards. A mowing machine housed under a tree deteriotates fifty percent, in a season. A baling machine will soon go to pieces if proper care is not taken of it. What a wealth in rusting iron a short drive down an average country road does reveal! If factories had a scrap heap as large in pro portion, it would tower mountain over-shadowing the business. Press reports tell occasionally of .farm ers who are resurrecting machinery from the junk pile there's a fertile suggestion in that! Thus is the war teaching us more pro duction and less waste. THE SCRATCH PAD ny THOMAS EWING DABWEY. BING ! high, RAISE RABBITS TO INCREASE MEAT SUPPLY. Raise rabbits and help relieve the meal shortage, is the advice of the United States Department of Agriculture. And it's a suggestion worth following. Rabbits breed rapidly, mature quickly and produce a palatable and highly nutriti on is meat at even a lower production cost than poultry. They can be raised almost anywhere in back yards of cities and towns as well as on farms. Thev eat mtv, grass, lawn clippings, and many kinds of green vegetables. Xo special skill or ex perience is required in caring for them and the highly profitable business of rabb.t growing can be carried on by children and ..dults not engaged in national service or regular industrial employment. A pair of Belgian hares or Flemish giant rabbits the best stock for meat produc tion can be bought for from SI to S3 each and should produce about twenty-four young during the year. The Department of Agriculture has pre pared an interesting bulletin on rabbit raising which will prove helpful to those who contemplate engaging in this pursuit. THE SENTIMENTAL SAVAGE. Recently there was published in some of the newspapers a personal narrative by one of the German aviators wy ton.l part in the murderous game of dropping bombs upon civilians in the city of London. He told about his departure with the rest of the aviators, when "the sun seemed" to be laughing at the world" and when their commander, addressing a few words to them, ended softlv with "God bless vou, lads." Picture it this sentimental delight in the bright blue sky and the shining sun, and this soft calling of the blessing of God upon the aviators. The ordinary student of human nature would say that here were men about to de part upon some errand of mercy, some mission of love and charity. And within very few hours they were engaged in the hellish work of dropping bombs upon a quiet school house, blowing the tender and innocent bodies of little boys and girls into bleeding fragments, catching men and women in the peaceful pursuits of their home lives and mangling and blinding them. All this done in the name of Fatherland, of glory, of honorable warfare! What is one to make of such a people? How fathom the mental processes of as sassins who mouth about sunlight and God before they commit their foul murders? It is this that makes them the grave danger to th world. They are war-crazy. They must be curbed and restrained and confined just as any other maniacs with murderous tendencies are. There is no room for such sentimental savages and there can be no peace so long as they have tree range. Uncle Sam must be one of th: policemen who will place the Prussian in a straight-jacket and render him impotent to follow the bent to which his' mania drives him. Crstview, July 10. You mustn't! think that the Blackwells are the only i attraction in Crestview. The place is simpiy swarming and buzzing with pretty girls. Far be it from me to iiian.e comparisons wmcn are oaious i in general and idiotic in particular! where the ladies are concerned. But the country lasses have a charm which the city misses lack entirety. Their cheeks are ruddy and it is the natural tint that comes from exercise too many of our city-breds vege- j tate in automobiles and have to gt their health-looks out of porcelaTn jars. Their eyes are fearless, direct, and far-looking as they are with all people who live in the open country; they have a supple erace. the erace of strength that is very pleasant to j see as they go swinging along in their awning-striped skirts and cool waists and floppy hats. And they are just as interested the girls, not the hats in the trial, as anybody. The trial of the Roberts boys was probably a greater t-tiain, because it lasted a great del longer than this one has; but never, probably, has Judge Campbell held court under such difficulties. The heat, the restricted accommodations of the little Congre gational Church, which has been im provised as a court room, the hun dreds of people who pack the build ing; the noises that are so noticeable, on a ground floor, roar of automo bile engines starting, the squeal of pigs that have lost their watermelon rinds, the shriek of railroad trains, the sound of talking outside. Judtre Campbell established a zone within which automobiles may not venture, and he has stopped all noise possible, but the weather, of course, is well, uncontrollable. That's not what I expected to say when I began the sentence, forgetting that ladies were present, but uncontrollable is ft good word, and it fits the locality I had in mind besides. A visitation of gnats adds to the difficulties, and people are constant ly making violent facial assaults vi themselves rseemingly determined To bludgeon themselves to death with their hands for reasons which you are unable to understand until vou get two or three gnats in your eye and breathe a flock of them into yo ir nostril ! delegates report to the mtuuis Trial of the Blackwells Has Cost the State Over $6,000 By Thomas Eing Dabney I Added to which the prorata of the Crestview, Julv 10 Six thousand ! institutional charges will bring the dollars is a conservative estimate 0f i total up to $6,000 Inspirations and impresions gath-! ered at the recent international con- j vention were related to the Fensacola !

II. Lee Eell ?r.d J. T- Teele also ad- ! dressed the club on phases ot the rent convention and urijeri all local members to attend the international gathering next year. Capt.

To offset the shortage in man-power on our farms machine power must be develop ed. If the wai lasts many years, we may indeed see agricultural life revolutionized with farms laid out with a view to public instead of private working that is, plow ing seeding and harvesting done by com munity machinery or custom work, and the farmers simply attending to the finish ing details, like manufacturers who handle partly developed raw material. But that's going too fast. For the pres ent, to supply the augmented demand next year is sufficient. Agriculture is the greatest factor in this war it is therefore evident that factories in which agricultural implements are made should not have output curtailed: it is als" evident tha there should be no shut-down THIS IS IMPORTANT NEWS. Those who study prisons and trv to find out men get there will be interested in this news from Xew York City. Out of 1600 men of military age regis tered on June 5 in penal institutions of that city less than five per cent were physicallv fit for service. In Rlackwell's island prison not one was fit for the Army. Everyone was a physical discard. A great many persons who have studied such things much will say that perhaps the physical condition of these young men imy be the chief reason for their presence ;n prison. And most of us feel quite sure that fine, healthy bodies and normal minds are most likely to keep their owners out of prison. It is with some satisfaction that we re flect upon the fact that this war will do a QTeat deal to make human bodies sfonsrer ;:nd healthier and to that extent make, prisons useless. QUIi RESIGNS OH MHR I. W. W. slackers are sentenced to a year at hard labor by Judge Landis. The sen tence could only be made more ruthless by imposing a weekly bath. First Lieutenant I- E.
