Twenty millions rf men ere
underarms, in Europe, All of
them have been withdrawn
from productive industry. Most
of them are engaged in the de
struction of life and pioperty.
No matter how great the sup
plies of the nations they repre
sent, stocks are decreasing, and
soon in many lines there must
be exhaustion.
We have considerably more
than 20,000,000 men engaged in
gainful pursuits. We h a v e

have a government that is re

Nation on earth that is not at
Although the sudden appear
ance of hostilities, disarranged
our finances and inteirupttd
our commerce, it was p 1 a i n
from the first that the trouble
need be only temporary. Our
own ingenuity, no leys than the
necessities of the whole world,
made that much ceitain. The
pressing needs of the belieger
rsnts were not alone to be con
sidered. Rich markets in every
clime had been abandoned to us.
Toward the Eolation "of the
problems rising out of this situ
ation the Administration at
Washington h a s contributed
sagacity and confidence. It
has refused to be stampeded. It
has co-operated powerfully with
men of courage and patiiotism.
It has been patient under the
clamor of those who hope to
thrive in business and politics
on calamity and panics
Time lias been needed to clear
up the cotton situation, but how
well it has been done is now
seen in Great Britain's agree
ment that this staple in neutral
ships, whether consigned to bel
ligerents or not, shall not ha
contraband. An undertaking
so formidable as the establish
ment of a new banking and
currencey system cannot he cai
lied to success in a day, but al
ready, in all parts of thecoutry,
confidence and credit are re
sponding to the p r o in i s e of
strong financial leadership.
Meantime, while a chorus of
detraction and despair proceeds
from croakers and partisans,
there are record exports at New
York; there aro tales of food
stuffs at Chicago amounting in
to the 'cm of millions; there are
orders in various places running
into like sums for clot hing, blan
kets and shoes; there are prodig
ious demands for motors and
other vehicles; there are day
and night shifts at many factor
ies, an J there is not a mine or
an oil well in the country that
is not preparing to respond to
the world in need.
Practically everything that
we grow, or make or possess is
wanted abroad. Every month
that devastation is prolonged
will increase the urgency of
purchasers. A protracted war
in Europe will mean occupation
for every American worker and
every American dollar. We
mut feed and clothe and per
haps in time mpply with muni
tions most of the peoples now in
conflict. The- markets the y
have deserted look to us with
t he same eagerness.
Thes-i are the fortunes nf war.
Tho United States has suH'eied
greatly from a conflict in which
it has no part. Like all tha rest
of the civilized world, it is yet to
f( el keenly, no doubt, the con
sequences of this colossal strug
gle. But there aro fortunes of
peace as well as of war, and
nothing but timidity and folly
can prevent us from making the
best of a bad situation. Ex,

The Petrograd correspondent
of the London Seandard quotes
a Petrograd paper as saying:
"The discord between the
Germans and Austrians, if we
can credit the reports of the
piisoners, is increasing after
each defeat. The Germans
blame the Austr.ans for their
mi-foi tune, while the latter
blamed their allies.
' On askings German Major
his opinion of the Austrian
army, lie replied: - 'They ate
not soldiers, but a fiuck of sheep.
All they can do is to retreat.'

Suggests the Inspection
of Chimneys and
With the approach of winter,
a suggestion to look after our
chimneys and flues should not
come a miss, As is very natur
al, the great majority of fires,
and especially those destroying
private homes, come in the
winter time. v And again, the
majority of these fires are caus
ed from defective chimneys or
flues. Because it is no easy
task to examine them, wo let
them go with the assumption
that they are alright then a
fire of ''unknown" origin comes.
' Only thii we-ek wo h id a little

our home or business is gone in
a few minutes, when possibly
we could have saved it by un

fire if we get to it when just
started, but it" is much easier
and by far the safer and more
sensible plan to use every , pre
caution to prevent the fire.
The fiie loss in the United
States is appalling. An official
statement recently issued said:
Imagine one long and continu
ous street reaching from New
York to Chicago; imagine this
lined on both sides with fine bus
iness houses and then amagine
a fire starting at one end and
sweeping everything in its path
to the other. The loss would
not eqi-al that ocasioned by ac
cidental fires in the United
States every year.
It is really our duty to take
such precautions as we can, and
ay mni nine nnr i-liimnuva at fhia
time of year is a big precaution.
If you havent already made
the necessary examination, do
so at once and see that your
flues and chimneys are absolute
ly safe. If you live up to the
requirements of the insurance
companies there will be hut very
few fires.
The Eggman In Philadelphia.
A young farmer from Clementon, N.
J., was selling 6gs at the corner of
Fourth and South Btreeta when a bar
tender walked up to him and asked
him the price of a dozen eggs. Tha
farmer answered: "Forty cents a
dozen," and as there was an extra egg
In the dozer he wanted three cents
extra, but ie bartender wanted It
'thrown In with the bargain."
"Well," said the one who sells the
liquor, "X will take the egg and treat
you to a drink."
"All right." said the farmer. When
they came to the tavern he was asked
wnai ne would tirink, to which be re-
"Well, I alius drink sherry with aa
egg in it."
And they say farmers buy Ka'd
bricks. PhlladeljhUi Time.
