THE GOLDEN RULE.
Remember that we are brothers, so let's be good and kind to others,
acknowledging their rights; why make Jones hotter than a hornet,
by playing on your flute or cornet, when he would sleep o' nights !
Why keep a swarm of hungry chickens, which cause more trouble than
the dickens, as golden spring days pass, committing crimes no man
• can pardon, bv scratching in the neighbor's garden, destroying garden
sass? Why keep a dog that is so batty it thinks it is outclassing Patti,
or even Annie Case, when it spends all the evening howlihg. and pour
ing diabolic yowling, ih torrents through its face? While of our
goodly deeds we're 'spieling, we're stirring up much bitter feeling by
little, thoughtless sins; *we keep a cow that makes Brown maddish,
because it eats his early radish—#hy bark that neighbor's shins?
pious works our jseal is splendid; to see all vice and sorrow' ended we
go down in our jeans; and then we keep a rooster nutty that crows
until it jars the putty from neighbors' window panes.

HIGH MEAT PRICES.
The United States department of agriculture's report
on the condition of meat prices prevailing on March 15
shows an increase in the price of meat animals—hogs,
cattle, sheep and chickens—of 16.4 per cent over the price
a year ago this time, and an increase of 12.7 per cent over
the average price for the last six years on March 15.
That this jump in price was sudden is shown by the state
ment from the same source thaï between February 15 and
March 15 this year the price paid to producers for meat
animals increased 8.4 per cent, while the increase for the
same period during the last six years averaged 3.1 per
An-increase is to be expected at this time of year.
Supplies of feed laid in to carry meat animals over thé
winter are becoming exhausted, and as yet there is not
enough pasture, even in southern states, to keep animals
in condition. And this condition has passed the stage
where the producer finds it more profitable to sell animals
than*to buy feed. Most of the animals brought to market
now have during the last few weeks been subsisting on
They were, of course, held for the
pretty expensive food,
early spring rise in price. The large increase this spring
is, therefore, to be accounted for on the theory that at
tractive prices earlier in the winter induced selling which
in normal times would have been deferred until the pres
There must, however, be a reason for early advanced
prices. The war has something to do with it, for large
quantities of tinned and cured meats are being exported
at prices with which the packers have publicly found no
fault. The belligerent powers need food badly enough to
pay well for it. and whether they like it or not domestic
consumers have to pay as much. Thus the strong foreign
demaud reduces the supply and forces upward the do
mestic prices. This condition, however, is one of the by
products of the war, one of the ways in which the Ameri
can pays a tax on the traffic in munitions. But in the
department of agriculture's report there is missing a vital
factor. How does the increase paid by the consumer com
pare with the increase received by the producer?
LAUNDRIES AND DYES.
Inasmuch as we have laundries everywhere, and the
fondness'for colors is general, a statement which was re
cently issued by the Laundryrneri 's National Association
of America is of more or less local application. Careful
investigation convinces the laundrymen's association
"that the wash goods in which the colors are most ques
tionable at present are red tablecloths and napkins and
towels with red borders; blacks in cotton ginghams, which
are apt to wash lighter and in some cases to 'crock' when
the damp goods are folded. Black stockings will probably
'bleed' and turn lighter. Light goods with blue, red or
black trimmings are apt to cause trouble.
The troubles of the laundryman are not hard to un
derstand. They had their counterpart a few years ago
among the cleaners. The latter, after many expensive
trials, decided not to guarantee colors in silks and other
fabrics. This dispute between cleaners and weavers led
to the disclosure that the silk mills—or some of them—
adulterated their cheaper silks. For the summer and fall
goods few "fast" colors have been obtainable. Hence the
laundrymen's ala mi. But if the laund'rymen fear to
guarantee fabrics as now dyed, what have they to do?
The answer is easy—recommend the wear of goods con
taining no coloring material at all. "In view of the sit
uation," continues the statement already referred to, "\ve
strongly urge our customers to use as much white goods
as possible until such time as the permanent dyes will
again be available."
For months an active campaign has been conducted.
More recently it lias been discovered that some laundry
price lists have been revised. The laundry price for men's
starched collars, which has long been 2i/o cents, is hence
forth to be 3 cents.
THE DISTURBING MOVIES.
The fickleness of the moving picture heroes and
heroines is amazing. It 1ms been just 22 minutes by the
clock in the corner since that young man was convicted of
murder, which he had doue for the love of a certain smil
ing blonde, and here he is eloping in an aeroplane with
tall dark lady. It is a relief, of eourse^to know that after
all he was pot hanged, but he migjit have waited until to
morrow before changing his sweetheart or at least moved
with her to the next show. It used to trouble us not
little to see our>favorite stars made love to by a different
young man each season and now it is nothing to see them
falling in love and marrying and divorcing at least three
young men in a week, and very likely two in one after
noon. Of course, it may be that we should take some of
the responsibility upon ourselves, and go to see each one
of our heroes or heroines only once in so often, but as long
as we know they are there, going through the fickle per
formance, we might as well see it and be done with it
to be wondering which young man is making love to which
young woman this time.
1 The movie is a disturbing thing at best. It, develops
a unique sense of romance in us so rapidly that we can
scarcely see a big automobile rounding a comer without
expecting to see another one in close pursuit. Every time
we look up at a ten-story building we are a little disap
pointed that there are not two or three people crawling
down the front of it. We learn to judge the types in the
performances on the screens and label everybody we
in the street cars as a hero or a villain or a detective in
Most disturbing of all, however, are these endless love
affairs with their infinite variety of changing partners.
The peculiar part of it is that each new arrangement
seems perfectly satisfactory,
should be .most unhappy if the certain young man did not
marry the certain young*"woman, no matter if we were just
as anxious for him to marry a very different young woman
just 22 minutes ago by the clock in the corner. Twenty
two minutes ago? The fact is that the young nlan may be
making love to a different young woman—perhaps two
three different young women—in every town in the coun
try, at this identical moment.

doctor turned toward them as he

worried wrinkle between Olive's eyes
as she spoke.
"Oh, she evidently planned on get

knew that a thorough search would be
made all over the adjacent roads and
that there was no chance of getting
away with a buggy. She knew she
would be able to get rides to help her

"Who could do such a thing?" asked
Olive sadly. There was no answer
from either of her companions.
