Probably there is no one in the world more miserable than William von Hohenzollern, one time emperor of Germany, king of Prussia and self appointed partner of the Almighty. poor manded) that Holland, the country where he is an "unbidden and unwel tome guest" give him "better pro tection." An air William is seeing things, plane has been seen repeatedly hover ing over the castle where he sought ■belter when he fled from Germany and Bill has visions of bombs dropped from the sky upon his hiding place, just as his airplanes and Zeppelins Mropped bombs upon hospitals, school.? and private homes, killing and maim ing innocent non-combatants. "Mysterious strangers" have been eeen "prowling around" the castle at Amerongon, where he is in hiding and he fears to go outside the castle walls. He sent to Berlin for two large bags of gold which he had "held out" when his subjects were buying "liberty bonds' to finance the war of de struction, and has employed more guards to keep these "mysterious strangers" from kidnapping him and taking him back to Germany for trial and execution. He was wont to take long walks through the woods of the castle es tate but is afraid to do that now. Ho needs exercise and is getting this by sawing and splitting wood but has to do this inside the castle and a room within the walls has been fitted up for him as a wood yard. Here the. once proud monarch, who planned to rule the world and claimed partner ship with God, saws wood alone and in silence. - He seldom speaks to those around him and they seldom speak to j The whole wosld has desired to have I him.

Your grocer sells Postum. you the former kaiser punished and the world has its wish. He is suffering the tortures of the damned in his soli tude and isolation, in constant fear that the fate he meted out to others shall be meted out to him. Waking or sleeping he is obsessed with the terrible dread of assassination by a bomb from the air, or that the Bol sheviki will storm his castle and take him and his wife back to Germany for trial and execution. No murderer condemned to death in the electric chair or on the gallows could suffer more mental torture than he suffers. But he deserves it pll, and more. Ra B* R» HELP A HOME INDUSTRY. Creekmur's business college is a home industry. It has been estab lished in Moscow for many years and has given a business education to many persons who have since become successful in the business world. The school has been injured by the quar antine and the publication of the statement that a student had the in fluenza many weeks ago. People who planned to come here from other states and make their homes, tempo rarily in Moscow to attend this school, have gone elsewhere. Something ought to be done to counteract this bad influence and let the surrounding country know that people who attend this school are safe from the disease and that they will do well to come to Moscow and take a business course here. Senator Porter, of Latah county, is apt to "get in Dutch" with the school teachers of Idaho because of the word ing of his very meritorious bill pro viding for mileage and per diem pay for teachers attending institute. The bill refers to teachers in every case as "he" and uses the same pronoun in mentioning county school super intendents. As 90 per cent of the teachers are women and most of the superintendents are also of the "gentler sex" is seems that the word ing should have been "he or she." Our able senator is liable to hear a protest ^om the female members of the teaching profession because of the wording of his bill. to n Gifford Pinchot, who was "discov ered" by the late Colonel Roosevelt who permitted Pinchot to establish forest reserves throughout the west, taking the homes from many bonafide homesteaders in this and others states, has issued an open letter to Boise Penrose, the big senator and political .boss of Pennsylvania, ask ing Penrose to not accept the chair manship of the committee on finance. We are a long distance from Wash ington and Pennsylvania, but we are willing to bet a reasonable amount that Pinchot's letter will not stop Penrose from accepting the chair manship if he can get it. Ba is» BB When Woodrow Wilson was an in structor in Princeton university we wonder if he ever dreamed that he would receive an invitation to visit and dine with a king and would be able to reply that he would accept the invitation but the king must await his convenience. Yet this very thing has happened to a former school teacher, which shows just how 'demo cratic we are and what wonderful opportunities there are before Ameri ca's young manhood. Woodrow Wil son had not as bright prospects 35 years ago as tens of thousands of American young men have today. «• m ta Don Manuel, ex-king of Portugal, has been offered the throne from which he was deposed several years ago, if the royalists win the present revolution. But Don Manuel and his English wife say they are pretty well satisfied with their home in England and he will probably decline to accept the crown. In that case the husband of an American girl will become king and the daughter of amAmerican citi zen will be the first woman from this country to become queen of an European country. isa te te In Belfast, Ireland, 100,000 workers have struck for a "40-hour week." Of course they want a full week's pay although this is only five days of eight hours each, or less than a seven hour day for the full six work days. If their request is granted they will next be asking for a six and then a five hour day. The labor agitators want to get the highest possible wages for the least possible amount of work. Pe te When Sinn Fein Ireland declares its independence and proclaims the Irish republic—as it may within a few weeks—Sir Horace Plunkett's assertion will be vindicated that, al though Ireland cannot get into the peace conference, the Irish question cannot be kept out of it. It is safe to predict a storm in Ireland before this year ends; at least the storm signals are flying.—Springfield Re publican. Labor unions are demanding short er hours and the suggestion has been made that their demands be granted and that instead of working eight hours a day the men be employed but four hours each day and let an other shift take the other four hours, each to get half a day's pay. 'J'his is one solution of the labor problem to permit all who want work to have at least half a day's work each day. Seattle strikers are losing more than $200,000 per day in wages alone, yet their living expenses have not been decreased since they quit work. It will not take them long to live up the surplus saved from their high wages and if they win their demands for increased wages the increase will not equal the loss of time during the strike. ■ "Boot-legging" is becoming harder and more dangerous as prohibition becomes more popular, but there are yet many persons who are willing to risk a term in jail or the peniten tiary or a heavy fine for'the sake of dealing in illicit liquor. ♦ ♦♦♦♦ + ♦ + + *♦♦ + ♦♦ MARKETS * + ** 4 >******** + 4 >* * 4* The following market quotations are the prices paid to the producer by the dealer and are changed daily, thus giving the public the accurate quotations in all classes of grain, produce and meats.
