We call particular attention to the curfew oi der published else where in this issue. The order has our unqualified support and we consider it one of the best things that could be done. It is not an uncommon thing for boys and girls of fourteen and fifteen years Lo stay out walking about our streets or to be out joyriding until midnight and often until af terwards. It is time that such practices were at an end. It is altogether too common for boys and girls of tender years to stay out at dancing parties until mid night and after and then to go joy riding till morning hours. It is time that the practice was ended. ' The order in and of itself will not do what it is intended to do unless the sheriff and' his de puties, the constables and proba tion officers are out on jduty at nights to see that it is enforced. They now have an excellent op portunity to accomplish a real good to the young people, to the homes, to the schools and the general good standing oi our county. Everyone in the county knows that the juvenile court will do its share in enforcing the order if the peace officers are alert in doing their part.

Many young men contemplat ing enlisting for the European war wonder what the chances are of returning. According to the French Government's report, the deaths for the three years past haye averaged seven in. a hun dred. This includes their defence when the Germans were perfect ly armed in every respect and the French comparatively unarmed, but all this is now changed. The Allies are far better armed than tne ijermans and witn tneir m- trenchments have cut their death rate to less than six to the hun dred. As all soldiers are vaccin ated against typhoid fever, small pox, typhus, and etc., this cuts the death rate to only half of that of the civil war which was twelve to each hundred men. In fact the danger is comparatively so slight that our insurance companies are only charging 5 cents extra on the dollar of premium on soldiers going to Europe, all oi wnicn shows plainly that the danger is actually very small.
