Postofflice at Mason City Iowa as Second Class Matter Abstinence Is whereby a man reframeth from anything which he may lawfully NOT A WEAPON OF WAR who have visioned the dirigible such as L the Zeppelin as a mighty Instrument of war are nore optimistic and a good deal less lugo Eckener himself He regards its field of pos ilbllities in combat as definitely circumscribed be tause of the inherent difficulty of defending it against Ittack by the speedier airplane I In a day when the world is showing a definite de ore to think in terms of ending war it is probably of i Beater importance anyway that the assured value of lighter than air vehicle Is to be found In com finerce Let us read what Mr Eckener foresees along i this lino We made the roundtheworld trip to con vince the most skeptical that the airship has a future And now for the first time we have found a definite and serious interest among bankers in the establishment of transAtlantic air lines It will cost about 515000000 to establish a fourship air line between Europe and the United States with double hangars provided oa both sides of the water These ships an improvement on the Graf Zeppelin will be able to make the westward crossing in festween sixtyfive and seventy hours i and the crossing In fortyfive hours I Cost to the passengers which it I fla contemplated the airships will carry would be around In addition about ten tons of mail would be carried as well as a load of freight which would vary with the seasons Referring to the new dirigible now under course C construction and 40 per cent larger than the Graf i ferr Eckener explained that Its passengers cabins ibuld be In the hull of the dirigible Power is to be jupplled by eight enginestwo In each car alongside the body of tha airship He predicted that the English 5 tould find that they were proceeding along some fuu 9 America however he added may rival Ger becRusa many of the worlds best technicians have been attracted to the Industry here AFRICA IN MINNESOTA SPEAKER at the program given In connection with the opening of 90 miles of paving below bes jVToines referred to Freeborn county Minn as the flarkest Africa of the Jefferson highway A few years ago that would have been several brands of treason Darkest Africa right under the Aose of the mighty Charles M Babcock commissioner jf highways for Minnesota Absurd J And yet today not many will criticize the meta phor There has been a procrastination in the con struction of this 25 or 30 mile stretch of paving that can have no justification I The extremely heavy traffic on this Primary Nol Constituted the first unanswerable argument for the paving The promise of Mr Babcock that lowans vould find Minnesotas paving waiting for them when fiiey reached the Iowa state line was another With a deliberation that might be admirable In Ither pursuits Mr Babcock ia getting around to the yreeborn stretch In the meantime motorists on this nost heavily used north and south road in Minnesota Are forced to bump along on the worn out gravel with the certainty that the road will be impassable for a period next spring if not this fall Freeborn county has been cast into the role of Africa an unenviable part by Minnesotas hrlncipal road Impresario TO THE COLLEGE FRESHMAN jUNDREDS of young men and women are now en tering college Some are going for the first time others are starting on their final year Many are worried and a little at sea because they have not been able to make up their minds just what field they want to enter when they are thru school iFhey do not seem to have a strong natural bent for one thing They are not sure which line work will them happiest All of this is just waste worry Their full effort should not be given to the finding a suitable line Majors may or may not be im iiportant Their full effort should go to the development of the habit of study of concentration The beginning of a lifelong habit of selfeducation is vastly more Important than the quick determination of the job one is going to hunt for and accept I The principal thing one can learn in school es pecially la college is to learn to study to learn to think to

rest of the world slow To hear some boasters you I think America held all the speed records on Irth Take note that the Great Western railway Eng 4 has cut the running time of one of its trains be Paddington and Swindon to 70 minutes The ftance Is seventyseven and onequarter miles The 1 erage of this train thru that section of the country 66 miles an hour American trains are considered it when their average is not much better than 50 les f DATES TO REMEMBER TT is useless to carry around the remembrance of too many historical dates Many dates which teachers try to pound into boys and girls are not really important To have a workable knowledge of history some dates ought to have a permanent place In the be taken out and used and put back For example remember the year 1541 Two vital things happened The Mississippi river was discovered by the Spanish explorer DeSoto Also it was in 1541 that the name America was first applied to the west ern world The name was originally applied to

who deals in hides and furs by the arrival of a mink fully clothed with a good winter coat at the hen coop of Mr Hirsch awaiting to be caught but n the meantime keeping his coat glossy and sleek by dining on sundry hens and cockerels For some time the minks depredations were noticed without divining the cause till the genius of Dick Brownell came to the rescue Three traps were Bet for the wily animal but he had succeeded in avoiding them each time and every morning one or more of the choice fowls were Jound with their throats cut The visits of the mink to the hennery were the signal for a general commo Lion first in the home of the hens and then in the neigh borhood which called forth Mr Hirsch and his near neighbors armed with clubs and pitchforks for the attack but each time only fleeting glimpses were re ceived of what was thot to be a weasel The climax came on Friday when an extra large hen had been N EW YORKS most versatile salesman Is the gentle man with the placid

enthusiastic concerning It It trends In the right direction he agrees but does not progress far enough How asis can its present We suggest armament reduction to the British at least are willing to accept limitation We both are full of peace pro testations Yet we plan to retain the worlds two strongest navies Not very convincing objection raised to Senator Frazlers antiwar constltutlona amendment would be easy enough to zuess if one had not heart it expressed at the time the amend ment originality was offered from all corners of the constitutional for how can we make it unconstitution al for others to attack us The senator The fact that it so obviously would be an attack Is the crux of he proposition No people ever admits to itself or to the world that It fights offen sively It invariably takes it for ranted or Is misled into believing that it fights in selfdefense Both sides give the same excuse and al ways have done so as long as there las been history Such a pretense would be Impos sible If wa were disarmed and had outlawed war insofar as we were concerned under any circumstances A resort to arms would be an act of aggresslpn against to everyone so Individuals occasionally commit acts of aggression against perfectly peaceful inoffen sive for plunder If Individuals why not govern after all nre groups of Individuals It might bo pure bur what good would It do us to know we were help less to prevent It A government might attempt it rejoined the senator but its own peopls would not follow it ASSUMING that all armaments were there not still be

to wars would be re moved at any rate They breed war They lead to armament races whlcli presently become so expensive that it Is cheaper to stop them by fighting than to continue racing Besides they

THIRTEEN 3IONTH YEAR New York World The Chamber of Commerce of the United Stares rvcling on a favorable report by a special committee has sent out pro posals to its member bodies asking opinions upon calendar reform Coupled with what has been dona abroad to prepare the way for a change this action indicates a con slaught upon its moneysaving competently administered city gov ernment under Colonel Sherrill ai city manager The republican ma chine wants to get back into pow er So instead of trying to do with the manager charter as thn machine crowd lately tried vainly to do In Cleveland the Cincinnati gang is moving to get control of the skiernble advance for the proposal city council which elects the city manager It figures it can run things in the old profitable inordinately expensive to taxpayers and productive of poor city service it can run the city thru a man ager of its own choosing The friends of the manager form are arming against the machine and hope to save the day next No vember at the polls And Colonel Sherrill has announced he will Im mediately resign if the council be comes partisan as he cannot take orders from each a political groun ably your heart would show fat

uptodate com petent physician Mr 1 Write me again telling1 me how much better you are after reducing in the Hy Y following The continuing resistance to day lightsaving time shows how diffi cult it is to modify almanac habits but a strong case can be made for a new calendar The change most favored by bus inses adherents is the establishment by international action of a year of 13 months each of 28 days That would take care of 364 days In mid summer of every year an extra day two days in leap years would make up the required number Sunday vould always fall on the s ame days the month Labor clay would ill ways be Sept 2 the Fourth of July would always fall on Wednesday With the change might approprlate y go arrangements for a uniform date for Easter Sunday A slight disadvantage of the plan would bo that the number of months would no longer be divisible by four a quarter would be three months and a week The advan tages are fairly obvious All statis tical comparisons with portions of other years would be facilitntfiil the vcorresponding dates would be no longer approximate but exact The calendar could be carried in the head We are a long way from the adoption of such a calendar Yet the change could be more easily brot about than was that from the Ju lian to the Gregorian system when mobs went about demanding Give us back our eleven days head half cut off and the large animal vainly trying to pull the carcass thru a knothole in the coop That vision was sufficient for the versatile Dick Collecting the dozen or more traps he set them along the edge of the coop at a feather edge sprinkled over them some straw to allay suspicion in the mind of the mink placed some choice tidtits of the slaughtered hen then went home to await developments An hour later in stead of the cackling of hens there was a clanking of chains The catch proved to be an unusually large sized mink whose pelt is worth according to Mr Hirsch Mr Hirsch said that when he advertised for fur in the GlobeGazette he did not think they would walk right up to his domicile The great annual race between King Corn and Jack Frost Is on It commenced on the morning of Sept 2 when some of the tender garden truck in the extreme northern part of the state was nipped It will continue until the corn is thoroly matured or until a heavy frost occurs which will put an end o the race right here and then It Is a race for life and death on the part of King Corn and with the aid of old Sol he may be able to go over the line in advance of his dead ly opponent Up to the present time he has received little aid by the warm rays of the latter so is badly hi need of a few days from now until the climax is reached which will be sometime during the first or second week in October for Jack Frost is always on hand by
