It was so diverted from military affairs in .1s-yria. Egypt, the c(ities
of Greece, and in lhorne; it was diverted from naval afftTairs in Holland

and devoted to the pleasures that made P'aris the mi-tress of fashion,
before the armies of France went down like tin ohltiers before the real
soldiers of Prussia in 1870.
The cause of the diverting of attention anti effort from military
things is not mental so much as moral; not folly so nlmuh as effeminacy.
It is beoause of a natural yielding to the pleasure. of the senses and
the appetites; to the p!iasures of soft beds, beautiful houses and gently
rolling automobiles; to physical indolen·mu, sweet itnt'. silk stockings an!
kid gloves; to fashionable society, golf and French nov(o; in a word
to luxury.
Yet it is at bottom the pursuit of luxury, and the re ult in; strife
for foreign trade, that has been the principal can,.e of lmd ern wars.
Conservation of the Country's Forests
Needed to Insure Adequate Paper Supply
By CARL VROOMAN.Aamita Secretary o Apiculre
At the present moment we are using daily 6,.000 tons of newspaper
and this is increasing at the rate of 10 per ce'nt a year. We need about
seven million cords of pulp a year for all our paper products, and at pres
.nt only two-thirds of this supply is grown in our own forests. We import
a third of our newsprint pulpwood from Canada, arwl between 15 and
20 per cent of the pulpwood used for our other paper products, from
Europe. Since the war this latter source has been cut off.
In order to render the United States independent of outside sources
for paper we must first of all eliminate as much as is feasible of the waste
in logging. Then we must re-use old paper, and develop woods hitherto
pnuaed to any considerable extent.
Both public and private enterprise must take the lead in the intelli
t reforestation of private lands. We must provide for the development
of privately owned timber lands by compelling fire protection and thus
checking annual losses amounting to millions of dollars. Moreover, the
public must recognize the benefits to the community afforded by the refor
atation of private lands and the burdens imposed on their owner in
deferring incomes from them. The community should substitute for all
other forms of taxation what is known as the yield of harvest tax on forest
lands, which are managed so as to meet their public obligations.
S There are plenty of "paper resources" in the United States. The
trouble is that they are undeveloped, unorganized and unnationalized.
Women Well Qualified to Aid Men In
Solving of Many Municipal Problems
j y LEWELLYN F. BAKER. Praoka ci M.&dicn Jum s J Hop~im U
Unhealthy housing conditions, bad sewage disposal, contaminated wa
ter supplies, impure foods, including bad milk, child labor, juvenile crime,
overcrowding, poor ventilation, dirty :streets, contagious diseases, smoke
nuisances, alcoholism and other drug habits, may be mentioned as among
some of the problems about which women should have a vote.
Formerly the woman in her home kept the house clean, saw that the
food was wholesome, made sure that the slops were emptied, took precau
tions against fire and tried to educate her children and to protect them
from contagious disease and immoral influences. Today this housekeeping
is no longer a matter of the home alone, but also one of the city, and in
this civic housekeeping women can do some of the work better than men.
In these municipal affairs of education, justice, charity, art, science
and hygiene, women should share the management with men. The work
will improve as soon as they do.
What has become of the old-fashioned man who used to worry about
how the country was bankrupting, itself buying automobiles?
Nevertheless, the toy-dog fad is ,,itter than the poodle fad for wpmen
who can't resist the temptation to kiss pet dogs on the nose.
Cabbage is now selling at such a high price in the market that thereWs
no longer any profit in making it into cigars.
England may turn her golf links into potato fields, says an excbmage.

In order that his work may live to
serve its full purpose, that he take con

insist upon a degree of quality mate

that he insists upon an architectural

The first of these two requirements
may Ibe fulfilled by his stating definite

careful selection of a contractor to do
the work, who has estallished a repu

architect, but he may he greatly aided
by his client if the latter has formed
a workable idea as to the general char

on the sidewalk. nsking for alms while
he plays a loud-voiced phonograph.
The other night he was in front of
the 3Ienx hotel. Just over him was
the window of the room of a Suisan
rancher, who was fighting insomnia
and the noises of the great city. "Say,
you," called the rancher, "how much
