"sight" proved "inspiring and significant" to "cap tai dwellers," but a first reading of that quoted sentence inspired us with a swift consciousness ^ wg were j n no immediate need of an emetic, and the "sight" it referred to signified the gov ernor's consciousness of the fact that overalls are peculiarly suited to his style of beauty.—Madsion County Herald. PAYING FOR THE WAR. M M M M Paying for this war is costly, but, as one mag azine says, "those who would call the time must oay the piper " During the next twelve months the war will ost us $3,800,000,000. Two billions of this amount ire to be raised by the great Liberty Loan and the rest by new taxation. This means that more than $33 must be spent or each living human being in the United States, .fet it isn't much, Great Britain is asking her peo le for $60 per captia. To raise a loan of $2,000,000,000 requires in ensive work by bankers and business men of ev •ry section. The bonds, to be sold, must be put m sale at every available place where people gath ir. Above all, two primary inducements must be mphasized—a call to patriotic support and the the offer of a sound and sure investement. People must be taught to link profit with patriotism. The response of the bond issue should be such is to convince both our allies and our enemy of vhat our participation in the war really means. M M M h M M M PENSION FOR THE WAR OF 1917. The first claims for pensions, due to deaths •esulting from the War of 1917, as Washington tubs this struggle, have been entered in a book "or the purpose. One was filed by a widow of a gunner who lost his life on a ship sunk by à sub- marine and the other was by the mother of a Guardsman who was killed while on duty at a rail- •oad trestle. We do not object to the state paying the de oendent of a man killed in the service of the country, but if the pensions for the present war iver amount to the grab game of the present sys tem it will be hard on the honest man. Some thing should be done to safeguard an enormous expense after the war- Interest on the debt will be enough by itself. to Mi Mb ta te Mb Mi DUMPING THE DRONES. M M M M West Virginia has set the pace—in at least one direction. Thl small-mountain commonwealth has passed a law that all males lacking an occu pation and refusing to work must leave the state or be subject to forced labor. The law includes the rich who have money enough to retire from active participation in the workaday world. Like the bees in the beehive, every male in West Virginia will have to work during the war. All between 16 and 60 are affected. The law will probably result in rich loafers leav ing the state and the poor ones doing the same— on box cars Ml M Mi M M M IM The senate and house doesn't agree on war "axes. The senate thinks there should be heavier taxes on wealth and lesser taxes on the poor. There used to be a time when the senate was the rich man's paradise, but those happy days, it ap oears, are no more. Now it's the lower house that is charged with being easier on riches. Yes, Hor ace, the world is pretty much upset since the war started. Ml ft IM Ml M IM Ml The most important thing to a good army is a good general. Well, there's Pershing, for in stance, in spite of the fact that he doesn't want any newspaper correspondents around when he takes his vacation abroad. MMMMMMM 1 The way the British welcome our destroyers across the pond leads to the assumption that the British navy is leaning upon us, instead of, as charged, we have been leaning on John Bull's bat tlers.
