The old year didn't die because it was drowned in liquor; nor did th new year swim in through oceans of the same stuff. New York thereby experienced a new sensation. ."We will keep our sword sharp," the statement ascribed to the head of the (iorman army means nothing it' it does not mean thai (iermany already is making preparations for another war.

The state weights and measures de partment is constantly reeemng vom plaints of the delivery vt short meas ure of wood, the latest complaint hav ing been submitted by a Barre nun who alleged snort mpaurp in n iui of wood he bought for fifteen dollars. No doubt some of the mistake of those who handle wood are due to no ntcnt on the part of those per-ons ; mt even allowing that sonm of "hi- hort weight is due to ignorance or arelcss measurement, there U no rea son why the public should be mad' to suffer longer in this operation. P -in sistent case of short weight in sell ing wood following the first warning ami instruction from the state weight and measure department ought to lie followed by prosecution, for the con tinued defrauding of the public would indicate nothing ele than a criminal intent. The public is at preent more or less at the mercy of the large num ber of dealers in fuel, cither thoe dealer whoe sole occupation it is r those who merely ell wood as a ve I line to farminsr or lumlierine. Tt is not fair, of course, to impute dishon-j est methoo. lo all of tiiem. tor twr are honeft men in that line of busi ness as well as in others. To elimi nate the dishonest ones should be '.tie purpose of the weights and meaues department, with the co-operation of the state's prosecuting agencies. CURRENT COMMENT The Coat of News Print Paper. A contract for news print paper for Ifil for the printing of this paper hat recently been entered into and the price for the first quarter is the highest price ever paid for similar paper, a price more than three times that paid for better paper in 1914. What the second quarter's price will be, and the price thereafter, nu one knows, but there ia hopes that by the end of the year the hope that by the end of the year the wood, which has been bringing a very hicli prii-c for soeral years, is made into paper and found in newspaper otliees before the middle of the summer or early fall. In the meantime fuel and transportation, two large item in the production of paper, are the hgliet ever with no immediate prospect of their Wing cheaper. The day of the cheaper newspaper is therefore appar ently some distance away. A factor in the price of paper not generally con sidered is the great increase in the use of paper products of every kind in the past few years. Hundred of millions of paper dihes of every kind are u-ed to-clay for serving ice cream, for drink ing cups and for hundred of other Uses. Many japer shipping carton are ued to-dav where other materials were Used a few vears and the inere in the ue of every kind ami Quality of paper is phenomenal.
