Patriotism is a noble emotion, but it is often put
to an ignoble use. The patriotism of the British was
inflamed because Cecil' Rhodes .wanted the diamond
fields that belonged by right to the Boers. The pat
riotism of the Japanese and the Russians was in
\. flamed because a Japanese group ] and a Russian
['croup* of financiers wanted Korea, which didn't be
long to either. .f^ ': .- :.::'' y:'.- :v.;' ■ "4% '■. 'l:-' ■'-' '■• ■-
Let's be patriotic by all means. But before we get
hot under the collar, let's be sure what we're getting
mad about. Is it because a stray bullet has killed
an American on the Mexican border? Or is it be
cause a few Wall street gentlemen want something
that doesn't belong to them? ••: ■'■"■ .-'.'••'.■;'*?■ :°

.wages (the average being $518) of 8,000,000 Ameri
can workmen, -or of 3,300,000 Americans who work
for salaries (average being $1,118). The results of
the ; life work of ten average men will pay for about
one minute of the military expenditure of the world."
The above has been said, written, whispered time
and again by Dr. Jordan, president of the Stanford
university, bitter, enemy of war."
And on top of all this when: we consider the total
number of h yes . lost, and the number of homes made
destitute, the phrase "War Is Hell" is entirely with
in the pounds of consistency.

The Times Daily Short Story
By Stimri B. Klone.
Farmer Ephraim Brown perch
ed upon the rail fence of his horse
■i.'s.stiire and bewailed the two
sorrows of his life. In the
distance, plodding leisurely down
the lane, attached to a rope held
by Squire Jefferson Ramsey, waa
a cow that gave unbelievable
quantities of the richest, cream
iest milk. Brown longed and
yearned for 'her as a man longs
and yearns but once In life.
The other crowning sorrow of
his life stood nearer. It was the
sorrel filly he had bought the
week before from Elder Hezekia*
Tilford. She looked like a win
ner all through. But on each oc
casion as Farmer Brown had
hitched her to a ve>hle!<9, she had
kicked the dashboard Into the
next magisterial district.
Squire Ramsey and the famous
Jersey at the end of an extraordi
narily long rope, and he walked
so carefully and skittishly that
Farmer Bro^n wondered.
"Mornin", Bphralm," saluted
the owner of the cow. "Are you
as plum set on my Jersey as you
useter be?"
Farmer Brown thoughtfully
combed out his patriarchal whisk
era. "Oh, I dunno,"he said, non
The Jersey cavorted aroun-d
and Squire Ramsey cried out with
unnecessary vigor, "Sough —
sough there, I say!" As the cow
quieted he looked shamefacedly
at hla neighbor. "Betsy 'lowed
as how we bad too many cow crit
ters," he explained. "Thought

Municipal Farm For Those
Unemployed Pays a City
City Forester of San Diego, Cal.
The work which San Diego is
tioing is the development of 7,000
iicres of land by the establishment
of a municipal forest and In all
other ways that will develop this
tract so as to Increase its future
value. For this reason It is im
possible to figure the work accom
plished in actual dollars and cents,
as the benefit derived will not lie
received for a number of years.
The work consists of planting
trees, clearing and breaking land,
building roads and making Im
provements, such as the laying of
water mains and erecting build
ings. The unemployed (they can
all be classed as such, as it was
simply a matter of whether they
happened to be arrested or not),
had a hand In all this work. Dur
ing the winter, when the greatest
number of men were in the camp,
the work consisted of clearing
land and planting trees. A good
many acres of heavy brush land
was cleared and about one hun
dred and fifty thousand trees
planted within a period of three
months. The work accomplished
was necessary work and as a
whole was entirely satisfactory.
At. least 90 per cent of the men
were good faithful workers and
responded heartily to the oppor
tunity which the camp afforded
them. Many of the men worked as
hard as if they had been receiv
ing a full wage, although they
were told that the amount they
rceived was not as a wage, but
simply as something which would
place them in the position to once
more earn a full wage. Whenever
there was an opening for a man

Farmer Brown strove to con
ceal his wild joy. He spat leis
urely at the grazing sorrel and
plaited his s.heik-like beard. "I
got a mighty good 'hoss there,''
he observed.
Squire Ramsey proceeded to
examine the grazing sorrel. As
he passed behind the animal Far
mer Brown cried out. "Stop, you
ding-dumbed tool! Don't go back
there!" Then as the squire show
ed his surprise Farmer Brown
made a diversion. '"Let's have a
look at the Jersey."
He began to pat and poke the
sleek cow; the cow fidgeted about

The only question as to wheth

development of this land pays or
not, over which there can be no
question, because the men accom

With both owners somewhat
suspicious, yet eager, the trade
was quickly consummated, and
Farmer Brown, suddenly gener

offered the loan of a buckboard.

''Great worm-eaten hoss col

The squire, still grinning, clam
bered into the buckboard. In
stantly the sorrel mare released
her hind j feet as If shot from a
catapult,* hurling the dashboard
into the clover field. The sorrel
began to back and pluage about.
"Rustling fodder stacks!" cried
the squire in terror. "Keep that
volcano o-f a horse away from that
cow." He was too late. With a
final triumphant effort, the sorrel
plumped her hind feet into the
fat sides of the blue ribbon won
der. There was a roar, a puff
and a soft thud and splatter.
Farmer Brown, hurled backward
