Aside from the great victory achieved by the allies for spread of popular government, the finest feature of the new peace that has dawned upon the world is the sur cease of the expenditure of lives by the nations leagued together to beat down autocracy and prevent the passing of the world under a cruel, war mad monarch and his brutalized minions. Some losses may yet be expected in the quell ing of disturbances incident to the reestablishment of order, but the wholesale sacrifices are over. Sec ond in importance, the destruction of cities and farms is stopped, and third, the vast expenditures of treasure for destructive weapons and munitions can be diverted hack to the arts of peace that make for human happiness. Gradually, as thé months and years roll by, the vast armies will be absorbed hack into the pursuits of peace, and as the work of rehabilitation and reconstruction proceeds the visible ravages of four and a q iarter years of the mightiest war of all history will be blotted from sight by the handiwork of Nature and of man. That partisan appeal of the president to the people to elect only democrats to congress evi dently had the opposite effect, as many expected it would, and as is now admitted by some leading democrats.

The closing events of the great war consisteu of a continuance of the allied drive on the western front up to the hour when the armistice took effect Nov. 11 While the British, French and Belgians pressed back the Germans with great vigor along the front extending south through Belgium into France, the American armies one advancing northward along the Meuse and the other north from the Argonne forest, took Sedan and cut the railway line which sup plied half the German army and by which half the German army was seeking to escape. Thus cut off. and thrown upon the inadequate facilities of but one remaining railway through Belgium, a large part of the German army of about 2 , 000,000 tnen faced annihilation. This crisis in the military situation, intensified by the downfall of the war party Id Germany and the spreading revolt against the Hobenzollern dynasty, caused the un conditional surrender of Germany by submitting to the terms laid down by the allies and signed by the German delegates at Spa, Nov. 11 . Oa Nov. 9 the kaiser, Wilhelm II, had abdicated the throne of the Prussian kingdom and the German empire and had tied to Holland with members of his family and suite. His example was followed on the 13th by Emperor Charles or Austria form ally abdicating his throne. Both empires are now torn with dissention while efforts are being made to estab lish popular rule on the ruins of the overthrown monarchies. Experts estimate that the war has cost 10,000,000 lives. British casualties reported for the week ended Nov. including 6145 killed wounds. Australia's total losses In the war, up to Nov. 8 , showed 54,890 dead and 158,199 wounded, population of only five million people.

He was corporal In company C of the 301st regiment, 91st dl visioD, and was in charge of the first contingent , which left Wallace, Idaho, for Camp Lewis i Septernher 5, 1917, and was in train- 1 in# there until July 5, when he was ordered to France.

Wiih your tawny hills, your splashing rills, your wood land aisles where supheams filter through! I've wandered far lrom where you are—I've chas'd around a lot; but there is no place with the charm and grace that yi u, my Love, have got! Where the Salmon glides and the Lemhi slides my heart with rapture thrills; when I stroll along and absorb their song my joy swells up and spills! Where the Tetons tower in the evening hour and the rose tints fluod each peak, 1 gaze in awe, while my gum I chaw, and 1 darned if I can speak! Where the Old Snake roars over chasm floors and Shoshone makes her jump, I just gasp for breath on that brink of death while I feel my gizztrd thump! Where the Sawtooth- climb to heights sublime and O.d Hyndfoan lifts his head I stand and stare at the marvels there till you'd think that I was dead! Where the Payettes glint and these v brown eyes squint at the sun gems on their breast I just d earn away through night and day and rest and rest and rest! Where the St. Joe curls and softly purls as she slips out to the sea, I drift and drift through the forest rift while fancy ranges free! Where the Cœur d'Alene spreads her liquid plain in the twi light afterglow there's a call 1 hear 'bout twice a year and you bet boots I go— Oh. Idaho, dear Idaho, with your laurel green, your golden sheen over fields and camps, you're as fair, my Love, as the stars above— but why don't you buy those Stamps? —Earl Wayland Bowman your Adolph Pleger Dies In France.

V These centers are near the canton Within six months after the United i 1 a "I have a place now to spend my evenings," said a telephone girl in Waukegan. Illinois, to the club leader, "I was so lonely before you came." Emergency housing for employed girls is closely connected with the more general welfare work. Cinters, selected on the basis of immediate I need, have been chosen as demonstra tion grounds to sbrw employers how I • irl employees should be housed..] Within six months after the United States entered the war, the Y. W. Ç. A. War Work Council had established girls' clubs near I more than forty I of the canton ■ ments, barracks, I and navy yards. A trained recrea tion leader was H placed in charge o f each club. ■| These workers : supplement the mjmi efforts of the lo HÉHi cal Associations. Ill* if those already «fi l exist. Where the idea M new the iti&JU workers form club centers, or ganize the girls, and arouse them to a sense of their responsibility In this time of great excitement and con fusion. No scolding of girls for unwise ac tions and no solemn finger-shaking oc curs in the clubs. Instead of dwelling on what not to do, these wise leaders urge real patriotism. All sorts of pro jects are suggested that are more in teresting than the dubious and danger ous pleasures which appeal to the ig norant and the thoughtless, parties, for Instance, these wily chaper ones, whom no one ever thinks of as supervisors, arrange that there shall always be twice as many soldiers gs girls. "Twosing" is utterly impossible where there are not enough girls to go around! Club leaders do not attempt to ban ish the gallant soldier entirely from the girls' world; they wish only to bring him down from glorified heights of glamour to take his place as an every-day hero, subject to the same scrutiny as other men. Instruction and relief work are not neglected. Among the activities of fered are dressmaking, cooking, knit ting, French, athletics, dancing, sing ing, Red Cross work. Belgian relief, and work for the fatherless children of France. The world contains a num ber of things besides soldiers for a girl's imagination to dwell upon. Hundreds of clubs for school and business girls all over the country are offering pleasanter recreation than the gaily lighted streets and the sha dowy parks. w C; Mrs. Davison At U. S Senator Nugent was elected by about 1000 majority over Frank R Gooding. In a public statement, Mr. Gooding says his main fight was to defeat the nonpartisan league and he is grateful to the voters fur the support they gave him on that issue.

The Bureau of Social Morality la « important feature of the War Work Council's program under the present abnormal conditions. That ignorance is no shield to a gtrl is well known to its members. Instead, it is her gravest peril. Any situation shrouded in my», tery is dangerous. Women can Heal only with what they understand. A true social morality must be bull't on a foundation of knowledge, and be inspired by high aims. Fourteen women physicians are talking to groupa of parents, school girls, and Industrial women. These lecturers bend their best efforts to spreading information on social ideals. Colored women at this time must meet all the problems confronting white women. Their situation is fur ther complicated by industrial and social conditions. Special clubs are being formed among colored girls In the neighborhood of cantonments. Workers are being placed in industrial centers like Louisville, Kentucky, and Hopewell, Virginia. Immigrant men who formerly la bored in mines, on farms, and in fac tories, and now serve in our army are, themselves, in need of assistance. Foreign men marry young and many, even of the young ones, have large families dependent upon them, cause of these helpless families, the War Work Council has translators who go Into the camps. ;• * I y The activities of the War Woyk Council could not be confined to oj}r own country. Our American nurses In France need the Y. W. C. A. social workers. Even the most self-reliant women must have help at the front where women's welfare is a matter Of minor Importance. A central club In Paris gives hard-worked, courageoas nurses a home in a strange land. Branch clubs at all of the base hospi tals provide relaxation and recreatloh for hours off. When the French women cabled to the War Work Council, pleading for experts to advise them In establish ing foyer-canteens for women workers in munitions and other war industries, experts were sent over to have over sight of the building and equipping of some of the canteens and act as ad viser to French committees. A professionally solemn-faced but ler in one of the beautiful home: where a drawing-room meeting was being held stood where he heard tbs stories of the War Work Council's plans and accomplishments. After the guests had gone he approached tbs speaker with two one-doliar t>Uls. "1 give them for my daughter." he said "I am subject to the next draft.
