Damage by Fire The residence of N. A. Vaden, North Ury street, was damaged by fire last Friday night. Defective wir ing is said to bo the cause. The family were all abed or about to re tire when fire broke out in the kitch en, and but for some noise in the back yard might have destroyed the building. Mr. Vaden started out to locate-lhe noise and when he opened the kitchen dcor the umake cameJ booming in the hall. The depart ment was notified and soon had the fire under control. The damage wa3 principally to the furniture, which was not insured. Mr. Vaden had a considerable loss altogether.

Colo rado Springs Telegraph. POWER OF STATES GRADUAL TRANSFER Henning Quotes Borah and BuUon on Problem. Washington, Nov. 18. la our un ion of free and independent States in danger of being swamped by a rising tide of materialism? . The tendency to Jet Uncle Sam do what the framera of tm American constitution intended tho States should do, without interference, Is increasing admittedly, arid whether this is a beneficial '4 or an evil tenden cy is becoming one of the great is sues of the hour. CENTURY-OLD ISSUE. The century-old controversy over State sovereignty, which our fathers and grandfathers thought settled by a war in which the nation was born again, now reappears to trouble the present generation. But the old bat tle lines have given way to new ones our forebears .would not recognize. Now Northerners call to Southern ers to rise again in defense of .State rights from federal encroachments, while Southerners join with Notf'h erners in justifying a greater cLk tralization of government tn the name of progress. Party lines have gone down com pletely before the issue in its new guise. There are Republicans who stand forth ss more rampant State righters than any Democrats nur tured in the tradition of John C. Calhoun. There are Democrats whe, in consigning State rights to the ob livion of outworn theories, yiell nothing to Republicans reared in the school of Daniel Webster. Some-there are who think the is sue destined to figuro prominently in the 1924 Presidential election, while others conjure forth a vision of the new State rights question splitting the old parties and -forming new ones. Looking backward they note the prohibition, negro enfranchisement and and woman suffrage amendments to the constitution, the Mann White Slave, public health,, anti-lottery, pure food, anti-narcotic drug, trade commission, oleomargarine, meat in spection, packing house control, farm loan, grain exchange regulation and Adamson railway labor acts, and de clare that we already havo gone far along the road leading away from the division of authority between the National and Stato governments con ccived by the fathers. . INDIRECT ENCROACHMENT. They see indirect, but insidious Federal encroachment in laws pro viding for national participation in the construction of highways, for protection of children, for co-opera tive vocational education and re habilitation of persons disabled in ndustry, for aids to agriculture, for maternity and infancy care, for pro motion of social hygiene, for protec tion of women in industry, and for other local purposes. They perceive with apprehension, efforts to obtain national legislation to suppress child labor, to promote education, to compel local enforce ment of anti-lynching laws, to regu late marriage and divorce, to censor moving pictures, books and new3- apers, to suppresc gun-toting, to en force observance of the Sabbath day, to suppress gambling and to achieve numerous other purposes, falling within the province of State regula tion. How far, they ask, do we intend to go in the direction of the central ization of government. If we keep on, the fundamental principle of the constitution will be destroyed, . the distinction between Federal and State powers will be wiped out, the State governments will grow weak and flabby through disuso of their powers and r.t last tho States will "fade from the picture." "A government from Washington, by commission," says Senator Borah (Idaho), "reduced to its last analy sis, is no different from a government by satrapies from Rome. And simply because the people of the States do not see fit at any particular time . to exercise the powers reserved for them, that is in itsejf no justification for the general government to exer-cise-theso powera." You want to bo careful what temp tations you fall for and what ones you resist ... .'' sometimes a temptation doesn't come again. Don Marquis. Red Cross Week. .... ' Washington. Upon the quick charity of America largely depends the fate of a million Christians driv en from Asia Minor by Turkish mil iary success, it is declared at Na tional Headquarters of the American Red Cross. Greece either will be a sepulchre or a place of rebirth for these stricken Pwple, whose desper ate Vteht 13 further depicted in a cablegram received by the Red Cross from Vice Chairman A. Ross Hill who is directing relief workjfrom Athens. w King1 George, of Greece, throufjS Dr. Hill, sent thanks to the Red Cross r its aid and expressed the an , ation of this nation to the American people. The Red Cross is rapidly perfecting its organization in Greece, said Dr. Hill's message, which went on to state: "Hundreds of thousands of refu gees are filling tho Greek cities and islands. Those consist largely of mothers with children who, with old people, ,are sole remnants of once flourishing populations driven into sea by the Turks. These miserable women, cold, hungry, desairing, shelterless, walk the streets with babes clinging to their skirts. In many refugee centers women who lost sons and husbands gazq from leaden eyes, over. Their little children are only hostages for the future of that element of Greek peo plo who first established themselves in Asia Minor three thousand years ago. In many tarraeks children and old peoplo lie day and night, flies eating at sores on their bodies an! faces, their jkft'.re black. "King GoiMjo thanks the Amori- Ican Red Cross for its help and ex tends tho appreciation of his nation to the American people. "Smallpox is spreading from one concentration camp to another. Meanwhile. Greece is awaiting now floods cf refugees. The race is on between American Red CrOES sup plies and these fresh shiploads of people. Tho Greek government has telegraphed its representatives in all countries asking the utmost help from every nation immediately." WINTEE FEEDING OF THE LAYING STOCK Tho winter laying flock should be put on a good laying ration to bring them into production as soon as pos sible, says Kate M. Wells, specialist in poultry, Extension Service, Uni versity of Tennessee. The ration should contain tho very necessary feeds that will give a good egg yield, and must also be those feeds that are raised iir tho community or can be obtained in the nearby markets. One of the very necessary feeds is ihat which takes the place of bugs and worms of the spring. Milk is the one most commonly produced on the fj.rm and with all of this that the flock will take, tho problem of the meat feed is solved. If milk cannot be had then meat in some form should be furnished. Meat scrap, put out by th- packing houses, or the best grade of tankage from the same source arc on the market. Semi solid buttermilk is also a good com mercial protein food at a fair tost. A well belanced ration is this: Mash: 16 pounds corn meal, 6V2 pounds meat scrap or tankage, 1 pound bran; 1 pound middlings. Scratch mixtures: 1 pound crackel corn, 1 pound wheat, 1 pound oats. The cost of this mixture may be reduced by using 4 pounds of meat scrap or tankage and 2y2 pounds "of cottonseed meal. Plenty of fresh wa ter and some grain is also necessary for best results.
