One would think that the east, where ships and shipping are at hand in the coast cities, would develop the greatest liking to the sea serivce of the government—naval and ma rines. But the middle west provides most of the If it were not for the fact that mid-west vol unteers for the army also exceed that of the east one would think it were due to the curiosity of mid-westerners for the sea; that young fellows like to go somewhere it is "different." | But the liking for the sea in the west cannot he explained on these grounds. It appears that! the boys just naturally volunteer most to all possi ble services. recruits for both. ■ ■a ta Mi B> * » ta THE FOOD BILL. m m n ip It has been surprising to the nation that a fight wag ma( j e j n 3ena t e against the food control bill. If it is true that the nation cannot fight effec lively with the present chaotic conditions in the food marts hanging about its neck, it seems patant to any reasonable person that it is imperative that the food situation be controlled. The food law will be of vast public benefit, and will make it tremendously difficult for brazen food pirates to swell fat and opulent. These reasons are all-sufficient why the bill should be law. And there are others—such as winning the war. ta 4M ta ta ta to to-™ THE HARVEST. n ta im to There are two sorts of harvests, the kind they have in the country and the sort they have in the city—among the food gamblers' fraternity. Herbert Hoover tells us that somebody has pil fered $5 a barrel on every barrel of flour sold in the last five months, and that during that period $250,000,000 of the people's money went into pri vate pockets. This is probably true. It is common knowledge that foodstuffs are much too high in spite of the shortage. Nothing but the unbridled pocket-picking of unscrupulous speculators explains it. ta ta ta ta ta ta ta ONE HUNDRED THOUSAND AIRPLANES. ta ta ta ta The government is to have airplanes built and sent to France as quickly as they can be construct ed. Our own men will pilot those planes. Many a fair young life will be sacrificed in the clouds, but for every one who falls to his death the lives of a hundred will be saved in the trenches. No saner or more far reaching plan was ever Revised by our government than the sending of these 100> ooo planes to the French front. With hundred thousand, or fifty thousand, additional planes in the air the eyes of the German army w jn be blinded while ours will still have light, a The rest will be a matter of time, strategy, and nerve. ta H ta ta ta ta Mi , THE PEOPLE HAVE SPOKEN. IM M Ml M The government asked a loan of the people of $2,000,000,000 for war purposes. The people re sponded by promptly offering nearly $3,000,000, <M>0, and this tremendous sum was subscribed in 8,1 walks of life, from the millionaire down to the laboring man with nothing but his weekly pay from which to draw. Every young working Kiris and the little Boy Scouts dug down when Uncle Sam asked for help. It is significant that our first loan of the war is also the greatest loan in the history of the world, and fifty per cent, over subscribed at that. The kaiser should worry! ta ta ta ta ta ta ta SLACKERS NOW WHINERS. for mercy. They are awaking to the painful fact that the government was not bluffing, and that in refusing to register they signed their own jail sen tences. IM IM IM IM Those valient young Willies who defied the gov ernment and refused to register are now whining They find no sympathy from the rest of the people, and when they have completed their terms behind the bars, and then taken by the nape of the neck and kicked into the trenches, loyal Americana will approve with a grin from ear to ear. As many able and prominent men in all lines are giving the government volunteer assistance, >t is surprising that none of the editors who are finding fault with the way the war is being con ducted have offered their services to get it going right. exemptions, Wilson will doubtless offend a few politicians, but he will please almost everybody else, to say nothing of adding to the popularity ta im im m a irettinir the wilt rubbed tiff his hero s getting tnc gilt TUDOea otr ms nero have promised a "made in Germany" In refusing to recognize political pull in draft of the war. to to to to , Some promisers—Admiral von Tirpitz, daddy of U-boat piracy, and Field Marshal von Hinden peace. ta Ä to to to Fine example of German "Kultur"— A Berlin lawyer telling * Magistrate in German-0«ttpied French territory that "tbt vrordi" humanity i*d pity berg, who' halo, who i PEUAGRA |-<é U guaranteed for one a bottle to benefit any ta.

Brick bouses grow old beauttfsOy. Brick, if it is good In color and texlurst takes on age becomingly. Brick tones Beach out and grow soft as years gn >y, giving that happy effect of fltnes» n prevalent In nature. "Brand-ne^ ses*" wears off quickly and a brick building soon sinks Into harmony with the trees and flowers surrounding Ü Brick is of every tone and hue, from light buff to purplish black. Soma Blades are beautiful and some are net so the same discriminating taste muss be displayed in selecting brick that la need In selecting any other house m» terial. In considering brick, remember, first, that there Is no auch thing a* "style" In architecture. That Is to say, style In the sense that this type or that type ie in style or ont of style and a» cordlngly should not be used. Brick houses can be built of any shape or size, but brickwork deserve» some consideration as to the former. Do not build your brick house the same shape you would a frame houses for brick Is a very different material from lumber. Generally speaking brick houses should be of simple ree> tangular form, wl'ii here and thera a pluln bay window or wing. It is dif ficult to build brickwork when the out* line of a building Is too complex; and for that reasoa the most practical do signs for brick bouses are somewhat simple In character. Brickwork is excellent when com bined with cement plaster. This Is a favorite type of design in England where country bouses are remarkably successful, and where the composi tions seem to harmonize so well wltb the beautiful landscape conditions. DONTS' FOR HOME BUILDERS Berloue Thought Should Bo Given ta Things That Should Bs Omitted From Now Building. If you are Intending to build a hornet as doubtless you ere, don't In planaiai devote all your energies to the thing» you need In the building, hit rathe» give serious thought to the thing* that can well be omitted, thereby savhsg you expense and future trouble and annoyance. Some of these are briefly outlined In the following "don't» Don't, when planning the home, ta> get that there is just one best lay-out tor the house on any plot, and that lay out can be determined only through long, patient and carefnl study of all the surrounding conditions. Don't forget that the unsightly radi ator may be successfully concealed by grilles. There are to be had special grille designs, suited to the vtrloue orders of decoration. * Don't, when laying out the lighting system of the new house, fall to plan fur adequate switch control. This la one of the most Important featnrea In the well-equipped modern home. Don't, If you wish to give an air of spaciousness to the rooms, fall to eliminate all unnecessary details. Don't plan your-new home without taking Into consideration tho possi bilities of the grounds. In these days of out-of-door living, the garden, tha pergola, the sun-room, the arbor and the tea-room are all really extensions of the house Itself. Civic-Industrial Clubs.
