" "i THE QUESTION OF THE HOUR, j What is our country? Not catar acts thundering down the canyons; not rivers rushing to the sea; not lakes with shreens of silver; not forests bending with emerald plumes to the breeze; not prairies affluent with yellow harvests; not mines of metal or coal; not cities busy with the hum of industry; not stalwart man and beautiful women and bright children; not temples of religion and science and art; All these are Its physical material symbols; but our country is something more than all these. It is a living presence that throbs in our hearts and inspires us to labor and sacrifice and fight, and, if need be, die for a cause and a flag. Where is the American citizen with red blood in his veins who does not look upon his country with the pride and affection that a child feels for his parents? Our great past is our father. “A man,” said Starr King, “endowed with millions and with boundless square leagues of real estate, but with civilization that he Inherits all cancelled, is poorer than the poorest citizen surrounded by, and partaking in. our civiliza tion." The American people have deter mined —the poltroons and pacifists to the contrary notwithstanding—that Germany shall not win our destruc tion from the want of wit of La Fol lette and Works and Vardaman. Better for us to expend billions and mortgage the future of our children and our children’s children; better to send our young manhood forth to battle; better all the cruel sacrifices of war than a base surrender to Ger man kultur. In one case we part with the evidences and immediate instruments of our power, which may be replenished; in the other w r e part with the forces that we have inherit ed for ages. Back to your kennels, you traitor ous dogs who would make of our flag a footmat for the crazy kaiser. He shall not place one of his soldiers —not one —on American soil. Our republic, which is the incarnation of freedom, the embodiment of the power and majesty of the people, shall, in spite of Germany and Aus tria and Turkey and all hell com bined, live “the colossus of the na tions—its feet upon a continent, its scepter over the seas, its forehead among the stars."—Los Angeles Times.

Sept. 29. —Proclaim- ing a Monroe doctrine of the far east Viscount Ishii, head of the Japanese mission of the United States, warned the nations of the world tonight that his country will not tolerate aggres sions against the territory or inde pendence of China. At the same time he pledged Japan not to attempt similar aggressions on her part. Speaking at a formal dinner in honor of the imperial envoy’s visit to New York the ambassador outlined publicly for the first time since he set foot on American soil the policy of his government in relation to China. “Circumstances for which we were in no wise responsible gave us cer tain rights to Chinese territory.” Viscount Ishii said, “but at no time in the past and at no time in the fu ture do we or will we seek to take territory from China or despoil China of her rights.” Then with dramatic eranestness he expounded the “hands off” policy of his government. THE MANTEAU COMES BACK. “If there is one mode more strik ing than another for the coining winter," says Madame Paquln in an exclusive article cabled from Paris especially for the October issue of Harper’s Bazar, “It Is the use of the dress with the manteau —the long, separate coat of many purposes, which by its very simplicity carries with it a certain sober distinction significant of the pretty French phrase, “le Manteau Royal.” With rare exceptions this manteau has re placed the tailored suit The great courtiers of Paris in this have thought alike, and nave made charm ing not only the manteau itself, but the frocks to be worn under it.” In these days of high prices, and when clothes especially are so expen sive, it is well to be sure that the clothes you buy .ire in very latest fashion. We have noticed in our office copy of Harper’s Bazar that Miss E. M. A. Rteinmetz, the well known American fashion artist., and Soulie and Erte, the famous Parisian designers, are contributing their ex clusive creations to this magazine In the Same Class. Weary Wiggles—De.v sa.v dat sum of dem poet fellers git er dollar er word. Fussy Feathers —Dat’s nuttin’; I got two dollars er word wunst. Weary Wiggles—Fer wrltiiv poetry? Fussy Feathers —Now.

In After Years. “Your blushes are like the rosea red,” He whispered to the maiden sweet, : Hut after marriage he simply said: “Liz, your face is as red as a beet!” Peace at Any Price. Mrs. Enpeck—lt Is a deplorable fact that too many people marry for money ; nowadays. Enpeck—Well, if 1 were single again, j no amount of filthy lucre could Induce me to go up against the game again. How It Happened. “How did you happen to let this headline, ‘The Bottleshlp Kentucky' go through?” asked the editor. “The oversight must have been due '• the association of Ideas,” explained the proofreader. - Natural Deduction.
