I wish he would leave It behind.” *T have a good idea,” said the hus band. *T will give him a great deal of myoga.” The Innkeeper carried out his plan and gave myoga, a spicy vegetable supposed to produce forgetfulness, In abundance to the guest with soup and. with vegetables, and soon after the guest had departed he hopefully in spected the room, there was no trace of the coveted baggage. The landlady began to scoff at the InefHcacy of myoga as an oblivion pro ducer, but lier husband admonished her not to lose faith so easily. “The myoga has had its effect,” he declared.

A number of young men were there. While I was waiting for the ice cream cones I raised my hand to my hair and my money (a dime, which was all I had), dropped down my back, and you can imagine my embarrassment when I was compelled to ask the pro prietor to charge the .cones. —Ex- change.

STRIKE END IS IN SIGHT WASHINGTON OFFICIALS FIRM IN BELIEF THAT END NEAR. * MINERS DISSATISFIED NOTHING TANGIBLE, BUT OUT LOOK IS OPTIMISTIC, IS REPORT. WMltro Newspaper Union News Berv lea. Washington, Nov. 4. —Official Wash ington Ik flnn in the belief that the end of the coal strike ia near. There was nothing definite or tan gible in the way of actual develop ments to Justify this hopeful view of the situation, but everywhere the feel ing prevailed that influences were being brought to bear to have the strikers, numbering more than 400,000, return to work. Confidential reports to the Depart ment of Justice from its agents in the coal fields were said to show mauy defections from the ranks of the strikers. Some of the reports said that large numbers of idle miners had declared they wanted to return to work, but were afraid. In this connection, officials reiter ated that adequate protection would be given. There was. no speelf.c statements as to how tills would be provided, but it was explained that troops would be- available at the call of any governor who believed it nec essary to preserve order or protect workers. Scattered reports from the fields, reaching into twenty-eight states, showed the first breaks in the ranks of organized labor in West Virginia and Colorado. Advices to Washing ton headquarters of the operators said that all nonunion miners were work ing to full capacity and turning out considerably more coal than on Sat urday. Some of the opera tors* reports said that union men had gone to work in nonunion mines ami that there was a growing sentiment that the men themselves should have had the right to vote on the strike before it .was ordered. This information, to a large extent, was in line with that received by the government,' especially ns to defec tions. Officials said the strikers re alized public sentiment was against them, ami some labor leaders also were taking tills view. Wlille It had been the government’s first reported intention to let the strike wear itself out, hope of settling It put all agencies to work and some direct steps were taken, hut tlielr nature was not disclosed. The sweeping powers of tile federal eoprt injunction in cutting off all strike benefits is being relied upon by the government to bring the strike to a speedy cjul. Local representa tives of the United Mine Workers of America were notified today that checks to cover expenses for the last half of October could not be sent at this time beenhse of the court's order. Idleness of the miners, with no funds available for tlielr support, makes it doubtful if they cun hold out for any extended period, accord ing to the view of men familiar with ■trike conditions.

Bouie comparative figures which force a realization of the magnitude of the world war are given In Henry Ford's Dearborn Independent, * from which Ik quoted: j “There were 19 major wars fought ? In the world in the 117 years from 1793 : 4o 19fo. The late war cost 50 per cent more in lives and cost 700 per cent more in money spent than the whole 19 other wars put together. “The most costly in lives of the pre vious wars was that between England and France, 1793-1815. a total of 1,900,- 000 men having perished. “Next came the w*ar of 1854-’56, In which England, France, Sardinia, Tur key, Austria and Russia fought; 009,- 797 men were killed. : The more recent war between Rus sia and Japan came third, claiming the lives of 555,900 men. “In our own Civil war both sides together lost 494.400 men, ranking fourth In loss of life in the great wars previous to the late one. “In the struggle between France and Germany, so disastrous to France and which played a very Important part In the recent i>eace settlement, 311,000 lives were lost. “We Americans who remember or have read of the Civil war, of Gettys burg. of Pickett'S) charge, of Sher man's march to the sea, of Anderson „vllle. have been wont to look on it as one of terrible slaughter—and it was. “But Russia alone lost more than three times as many men In the late war as were lost by both the North and the South In the Civil war. Germany lost more than three times as many. "France lost nearly three times as many. “Great Britain lost nearly twice as many. “Austria lost nearly twice as many. “So great has been the development In the engines of death that it is al most impossible to conceive the in crease of fatalities in the late war as compared with previous wars. “There were 09 years of war among the various nations in the 117 years prior to 1910. “As nearly as raa be learned. 5.098,- 097 men lost their lives in those wars. “That would mean 73,885 lives lost a year, or about 200 u day. “In the late war there were 200 men kilted an hour, about 4.800 for every day of the war; a total of 7.450.200, according to the best available fig ures. That would be about 1,750,000 a year. “In money cost of previous wars the French-English war, 1793-1815, comes first with its tax of $0,250,* 0001000." Alaskan Fur Seats.
