I'bono Main 82. DESTRUCTIVENESS OF WAR. A WARNING to the world as to the destructiveness pf modern weapons of warfare is furnished by the re port of the International Commission to investigate the Balkan atrocities. There were about 1,000,000 men in the armies of all the rations engaged in the two Balkan. wars, and of these one-third, or about 500,000 men, were killed or wounded, although both ware were included in the space of a single year. This was more than twice the number killed and wound ed in the war between Russia and Japan, which also lasted only about a year. And the testimony of the commission is that the wounds of those who survived were largely of a ghastly and horrifying character, entailing upon the sufferers lives of anguish and helplessness, and upon the nations to which they belonged an age-long burden of sympathy and simnort. When thev rushed so hastily into these wars the na- limis involved did not realize the vast advance in the de structiveness which the last few years have added to the weanons of warfare. But it will be the fault of any na tion contemplating making war hereafter if it does not learn the lesson of the Balkan wars, and consider care fullv the cost of coine: into a war in which it has now be come possible for a few men, by the scientific use of ex plosives, to annihilate the enemy by regiments. Napoleon's dictum that victory is on the side of the heaviest battalions is no longer true. Governments are much like men, some are ready to scrap any old time and some always wait until the fellow they want to lick has a boil, or a sore arm, or is not feeling well generally. Austria seems to be of the latter variety. S're had nothing to say to little Servia about the murder of her crown prince until labor troubles required Russia's atiention. With Russia not in condition to back her little allv, Austria knows she can slap her with impunity, and immediately proceeds to do so. If Servia resents this and stands pat, all Europe may be drawn into the row. Rus sia will help Servia, Germany will aid Austria, France and England will take Russia's side of the muss, and Italy will stand with Germany. Sweden, Norway and Denmark would do anything to help Russia get thoroughly licked, and the smaller fry would get in as their interests demanded. William Williams, of Dexter, has gone to Portland in his automobile to purchase a new thresher. Eugene Register.

The Teleeram savs: "Whatever may be thought of the outcome of prohibition the weather has certainly gone dry." This is true, but it might he added that outside oi the prohibition issue it will probably be' decidedly wet in November. The Albany newspapers are having a red-hot scrap over a mighty small thing.

The Oregonian's wild man is now in hi'Voods and it is hoped so far in them that nothingwill be heard of or from him for several months, or .Vtter yet, years.

In the interest of the effete east andtrie bean diet, it is hoped that his ex periment may t;6ve a success.

T A judge in Elizabeth, New Jersey, sentenced Dennis Boyle to get married inside of thirty days, and for no other reason than as he explained to the victim, "you drink too much." At the same time he compelled the young man to take the pledge not to drink for a year. This may prove beneficial to Dennis, but how does it size up for the woman who becomes Mrs. Dennis? Has a judge a right to wish that kind of a man on any woman and to punish her for another's shortcomings?

The Weekly Saving Plan. "The principal of fhrifAs the foun dation of character." John A. Dix. A movement 1ms been started to get people to promise themselves to save and deposit something in the bank every week. The pledge or covenant they make with themselves is us follows: I WILL become a " WEEKLY NA KR," and will deposit $ every week for nt least !)2 weeks to my credit in a savings account at the bank. bigned This seems like a very good idea. I'he object of the plan is three-fold 1. To demonstrate to depositors that in a year tliey can mane a- regular weekly deposits of nt least a certain sum no mutter now smiiii. !. To show them that by adhering lo their resolution tor wens niey form a habit, through which it will be easier tor tliem to Keep on saving mini to stop. 3. To acquire n cash capital with which to grasp opportunity, realize an ambition or be ready for sudden and unusual necessity. The advantages of such a method of building up a reserve fund are brought out. by implication, in these words of n banker in the Lompoc valley of Cali fornia, who says: "The past two years, particularly the last one, have been what we call short' years in this valley. The rain fall was below the average niul con sequently the crops were short, tor several years previous to LT- our etops weie exceptionally good, and everyone seemed to feel that he was making monev and that this condition would continue indefinitely. Instead of pay ing off their mortgages and other in debtedness, a great many added to their land holdings, bought automobiles. etc. o, when the short years came they were unprepared." A systematic method of saving is of benefit not only to farmers, wage earners and salaried persons, hut busi ness men would do well to consider it seriously as a plan to build up re serve capital. Those who have "arrived are as likely to need an emergency or oppor tunity fund as are their employes. Any business mna, personally, niny have need of a little extra private cap ital some day, available in cash, cut side of his business, unknown to oth ers and ready for any call. Build a personal reserve. Have o business reserve, too. Don't argue that you can use your money to better ad Vantage in your business. A reserve may be your financial salvation some day.
