OUT OF THE FOG.
A survey of world conditions as the northern hemis
pheres plunge toward winter is sufficient to convince the
average man that humanity must hasten to regain its
senses and resume its labors quickly if uppalling catas
trophes are to b averted. There is a world shortage of
food and a world shortage of fuel. The nations that have
given most to the cause of humanity are the worst pros
pective sufferers. France, England, and Italy are in dire
straits already, and the pinch of winter is not yet here.
England no longer produces coal eonugh for her own
needs. France is not obtaining from Germany the coal
that is necessary to save life. Italy has no coal and no
means of obtaining coal.
Germany and Austria are in equally bad shape, so far
as food and fuel are concerned. They are in still worse
condition from a credit viewpoint, as no nation will lend
them money and their securities are scraps of paper, such
as Turkish, Bulgarian and Hungarian bonds. There is
no Turkey, Bulgaria is a liability and Hungary is feeling
the just retribution of the Roumanians, who had been
stripped and starved by the rapacious Magyars and Ger
mans. Everything that can sustain life has been extorted
fro mthe Magyars by the famished and desperate Rou
manians, and it is to the credit of France and Italy that
they have refused to look upon this reprisal as unjust.
Some idealists in the supreme council have afTected to
look with horror upon Roumania recouping her food sup
ply in Hungary, but they have nothing to say of the piti
less devastation wrought by Falkenhuyn and Mackensen
with their German-Magyar hordes throughout Roumanfa.
If there is no other justice to be had in this world it is
well that retribution should be had with the sword against
those who draw the sword.
The world is going through a twilight zone of fog and
error, in which strange idealistic notions are accepted by
deluded millions in mistake for truth. In its shell shock
and present economic distress the world accepts nonsense
for reason and is willing to abandon ti.sted truth in order
to follow glittering experimental schemes which seem to
open a good road out of the universal morass.
It is fondly supposed that nations tan somehow join
together to accomplish sudden wonders of force and re
form without in the least compromising national integrity.
The fact that the same nations have joined in mutual
efforts for eleven months with absolute freedom of action
and have failed to ascertain what ails the world does not
seem to have any weight with the rainbow chasers. There
is onw in actual sitting a supreme council of nations, and
yet, instend of smiting down the plans of the world's
enemies and lifting up the stricken among nations, the
supreme council is fast becoming an impotent debating
society, because it also is deluded and is following phan
toms. It is cowardly when it sees the truth and absurdly
arrogant when pursuing wrong. It dares not tackle
Russia, but it breathes slaughter against Roumania. It
is persistent in the delusion that political nostrums can
cure economic ills, and thus appears in the role of a
quack who administers medicine without the least idea
of cause or effect.
Are the peoples to be blamed for error vhen their gov
ernments blunder? It is not surprising that wage earners
are infected with poisonous doctrines, such as the belief
that restriction of output will increase wages or the notion
that a political revolution in the United States will mean
an economic millennium. Why do they mix politics with
economics? Because their leaders have taught them to
do so. If governments themselves are muddled, it is too
much to expect hard-working men, busy earning a living,
to avoid all pitfalls.
Since the world is short of food, it must produce more
or die. Since it is short of coal, it must produce more or
freeze to death. Since it has an enemy who is arming
for another attack, it must shackle him or have another
war. Since it has issued a lot of aper am: called it dol-
lot'. nr.IIVI.ln f... I' 1 .l I . ...
""n '"uuu.-, ji(ui, Hiiu ivN, ine r.nu runics, it must either
put value into this paper or use it by the- bushel to buy
a dozen eggs. Since it is formed by nature to live by
nationalities with distinct love and hates, ic must either
strive to live at pence by nationalities or violate nature
by trying to become one people. Since man cannot add
to his stature by wishing or increase the wheat crop by
voting' or double the coal output by creating a League
of Nations, it behovoes him to recover his senses as
quickly as possible and go to work. There is no sub
stitute for labor. Washington Post.

THE TREATY DEBATE.
It is unfortunate that all discussions of the peace treaty
and the League of Nations are not conducted with good
temper and avoidance of offensively personal remarks.
There is ample room, in this subject for the exercise of
all the wisdom that any American can muster, and he
cannot muster all of his wisdom if he strays from th
problems themselves. Any kind of argument that runs
into an exchange of epithets or disputes as to veracity is
a subtraction from the sum total of wisdom that could
be applied to the subject. For the time toeing, a man

is defrauding himself of the opportunity' to think of
something really worth while.
The questions involved in the peace treaty are of su
preme importance to the United States, and therefore to
every citizen of the United Suites. The amount of solid
information and enlightenment concerning the treaty is
not yet sufficient for the eople. They are not yet fully
acquainted with the responsibilities and consequences of
membership in the League of Nations. The best that any
individual senator can do is to study some particular
branch of the subject, muster it and give the results of
his study to the country, honestly and patriotically. Some
senators have done this faithfully. Others have been
unable to devote the required time to the task. Still
others have wasted their time in fruitless controversy
over immaterial points arising from the discussions. All
told, only a few valuable contributions to the stock of
public information have been made, and thus, at a time
when the country should be thoroughly posted upon the
subject and ready for a decision, there is wide diversity
of opinion upon questions that can be solved by con
scientious research and mental application.
The time is approaching when the Senate must decide,
ignorantly or prudently, what shall be done. Inasmuch
as the treaty covers a multitude of questions that have
not even been discussed by the senate, it seems reason
able to suggest that personal exchanges be eliminated

It makes me feel sober to know
that October is just about due at the
door; her curves all remind me of
long years behind me, and short ones
that stack up before. October is
ghostly, she's saddening, mostly, with
leaves falling down from the trees,
with nights that are chilly and rains
that ace silly, and farewells to robins
and bees. Oh, dreary October, in
sadness they robe her, her garments
are ashen and brown; the year's grow
ing wider and feebler and colder,
which reminds me my sun's going
down. October's the token of joys
that are broken ; the roses are wither
ed and gone; nasturtiums and asters
have met with disasters, they flourish
no more on the lawn.. It rains, but
the water would have to be hotter
before it could nourish the heath ; it's
raw and it's chilling and clammy and
killing and brings me a message of
death. The cool winds are sighing,
the wild geese or flying, and honking
like automobiles; their wide wings are
humming, they herald the coming of
weather that promptly congeals. The
summer's departed and Autumn's
well started, and winter will come
with a rush, the winter so yellow
then happy the fellow who's saved up
a package of cush.

ALL THAT LIFE CAN GIVE
When the gentle mother's singing,
and the children are at play,
And the home seems filled with laugh
ter atthe ending of the day,
I can settle down contented and dis
cover there and then
That I'm owning all the gladness that
life has to give to men.
When the little ones are healthy and
the mother wears a smile,
I don't need to sigh for riches for
I've everything worth while;
When the nights are calm and peace
ful and the daily tasks are o'er,
I find that I'm possessing all that men
are striving for.
When I'm free from all distraction
and my thoughts are running
When the sound of happy children is
the music that I hear,
Through the sham of earthly glory
and its golden lure I see,
Though I've neither fame nor fortune
all their joys belong to me.
He that finds his loved ones happy
when his daily tasks are through,
And has grought them to content
ment, has done all that man can
For the purpose of all struggle when
the cjash and clamor cease,
Be the toiler great or humble, is a
home that's rich with peace.

Sometimes drownding peeple make
more motions than any other kind,

to stay on top of the wattir as eny
