Potatoes a few months ago potatoes were almost Worth their weight in Platinum. With their Rise in Price came a new appreciation of their intrinsic value. We began to look upon the homely vegetable As a luxury. Every tuber was treasured it was pared thin or baked and the skin eaten or boiled in the jacket and that garment removed with scrupulous ceremony. How precious every dish of potatoes looked whether mashed boiled baked or Fried and How Good they tasted we have never realized How delicious Mere potato could be. And now we re in danger of slipping Hack into our old indifference again. We re coining to feel once More that potatoes Are unimportant we can take them or let them alone. We can eat other things just As Well. We can Peel them As carelessly As we please. We can let them rot if we like. It does t matter much. Because once More potatoes Are plentiful and coming to la cheap. We have been blessed with a huge crop. To Lieble estimates place the country s total yield at More than 467,000,000 bushels. Last year it was Only 285,000,000, and the year Lief re 800,000,000. We have about a Bushel More than usual for every Man woman and child. Wherefore we should eat potatoes not scorn them. There is no More wholesome food. And this plenty comes providentially at a time when we want to save All the non perishable foodstuffs we can to keep our european allies and comrades from starving. This Bountiful crop wisely used will make our cereals go much further without imposing any privation on us. Remember How Good those potatoes were last Spring fill up the empty bins and have them on tile table the potatoes not the bins with unfailing regularity. A a Good by Nicholas poor Czar Nicholas the sympathies of a sentimental world go with him on his weary journey to Siberia. Nobody gloats Over his Fate. Nobody feels of inv personal hatred of the illustrious exile. Hatred is too Strong a passion to lie applied to such a futile personality. The russians themselves do not hate him. There Are no derisive shouts at his train moves toward the silurian wilderness. It is not a Man that Russia is sending along that hard Road that so Many thousands of her Best aft noblest sons have journeyed. Nicholas Romanoff puny in body and mind the eaglet that could Only cling feebly to his lofty Perch instead of soaring the very incarnation of the Type of soul that a Means Avell but Means Well feebly a the Sovereign Avo sought to lie russian but submitted to a prussian wife Trio pacifist who drifted into War the Friend of Liberty who acquiesced in the continued shackling of the russian soul tin pious Christian who tolerated the most unchristian cruelty the Imperial Patriot who betrayed his is really no More pitiful a spectacle now than he was in the Days of his Power. He did not count then in the big scheme of things. He does not count now. It was Tho ancient autocratic system not Nicholas that held the scepter and committed the crimes. It is the system that is timing cast into outer and icy darkness. As Long As die Little human rubber stamp that expressed that system remained in Petrograd the new ship of state was troubled. His presence disturb red the Compass. Now that he has gone the Needle will Point truer to the pole of democracy., poor Little Nicholas Lake care of yourself. And done to forget your Muffler and foot warmer.

Quot be i suppose so Isnit very Well but i think she s inclined to to rather spleen. She thinks an awful lot about her health. I think shed he better Oft if shed a kludge up a bit and not think so much about so i heard one woman characterize another the other Lay. The woman characterized had been visiting the other and had had the misfortune to have an attack of a chronic malady during the visit. She i one of those terribly healthy people the woman who did the characterizing is one of those people who Are born of Hardy Stock have abundant vitality j and think it Quot ail nonsense for other people not to be As about Dinghy healthy As themselves. This trick of fancying that the other fellow is spleen when he does not feel up to the Mark is one of the commonest human frailties. We know he Isnit Well but we can t help feeling that of we had the same ailment we would stand up under it better would throw it off More bravely would not act so depressed and depressing. Why we can Remer Bere perfectly Well times when we Felt just As bad As he does and give in to it. Maybe he bearing up wonderfully and there s the rub. How do we know we Felt just As bad. How do we know just How he does feel. Maybe to do even As much As he does to Bear up even As Well As he is bearing up is performing prodigies of self Conquest. How on the face of the Earth can we know i once had a great lesson in this which has helped me Ever since. Home years ago a relatives of mine with whom i was living had a had attack of tonsillitis a disease with which neither of us had had any experience until then. The was completely floored by it. For awhile i nursed her willingly and did her share of the work and then i began to wonder if she weren to a Little bit spleen because she did no to seem to have More ambition to get Well did no to try to make herself eat did no to push herself a Little harder. Yes. In a not proud of it but to Tell the truth such were my hidden feelings. I found myself in her place and then the germ reached me and i also succumbed i also Felt that deadly lethargy that miserable inertia i hat hangs like a weight upon one s every movement almost on one s every thought.

John was rough Guy a real rough Guy it. Wayne ind. Aug. 19. Quot i you so hard your head will Fly across the Street and you never will be Able to find it again a these words were attributed to John Quandt by his wife Bertha in her petition for a divorce. The got her divorce. Our versatile off in pus. A before this w a is Over we shall probably hive two million men in Europe writes Mary i lobe Rte Rinehart who has been visiting tin army training Camps the country Over and reports her findings in the saturday evening Post. A and every thirty two men of that two million will have to have a platen Leader. That Means 62,500 men who will be responsible for their platoons who must know not Only How to Drill and train them but How when once they have reached France to take their platoons Forward dispose them properly in the trenches according to the new and complicated Laws governing Trench warfare and having placed them there How to keep them fed clothed and warmed give them proper hours of rest and of labor and teach them to repair trenches and to dig new ones. In addition these platoon leaders must supervise the care of the wounded and whop the moment comes must Lead their men to the charge. A to do All this these 62,500 officers to be must be not Only soldiers but Book keepers trained nurses Cooks diplomats sanitarians carpenters Aud now these of course. Ire male activities. But sow How that last paragraph sounds strangely like the requirements for the successful wife and Mother. And perhaps when these Fine Young officers come Back from the War As 99 per cent or them according to the latest figures Are going to do they May add to the Long and varied list of their attainments a High degree of sympathy and understanding for the work of those Oiler a Book keepers trained nurses Cooks diplomats sanitarians carpenters and engineers a whose place is in tile Home. A a a ambassador Gerard a analysing arid interpreting the Kaiser a Telegram of August by 1914, to president Wilson Points out that the German pro the Peon is a Bright subject of the mexican government whose principal occupation consists in raising fourteen distinct varieties of continuous and explosive hell not All of the mexican peons follow this occupation the year around but there Are enough of them who prefer the War path to blowing Corn to keep your Uncle Samuel awake nights. The Only Man in Mexico who was Ever Able to keep the Peon in a subdued and docile state was the late Porfirio Diaz. Or. Diaz was a Stem Man with a jaw shaped like a Cement Block and he always got in the first lick As Macaulay would say. Whenever Diaz heard that a Bunch of Long haired peons had become fired with patriotism and american whisky and were about to uprise he did not wait to confirm the report by letter. He started for the scene of the uprising before Daylight and when he had finished what he had to say the still forms of his enemies could be Heen draped Over the neighbors fences for a distance of six Miles. Nobody Ever tried to Spring a revolution on p. Diaz without being taken Home to his family in a Gunny sack. O for a Diaz in Mexico at the present writing. The mexican Peon lacks a great Many things in order to make him a desirable companion and household pet. Two of the things he lacks most Are education and Hoap and it to hard to say which would do the Moat Good. Opinion is divided. Americans who have lived in Mexico for any time say that compulsory bathing introduced at the Point of the Bayonet would do More to civilize the Peon than a Campaign for consolidated schools. Many peons Are i peaceful and willing to work occasionally if left alone but j they Are overawed by their warlike Brethren who would rather shed heir alcoholic breath on the Field of Battle than i Plant one acre of Early Ohio potatoes. The Only difference Between the Peon and the filipino i is that the latter has quit erupting for the time being. Both would be better citizens if a Tew of their leaders could be led out shortly before Sunrise and completely filled with a i Low Grade of Lead Ore. We should sympathize with the Peon in his ignorance and Lack of underwear but civilization would a advanced several feet of More of the colonels i and generals if the Peon army could be removed from a i live pursuits by the neck. United states marines have been great factors in Mili Tating toward perpetual peace among the defenceless people of Haiti mud Santo Domingo who were worn out by yearn of internal strife. These Advance agents of american civilization wanted Pence so badly that they were willing to tight for it. A a the marines have literally taught the haitians How to live decently Quot said the right Rev. Charles Blayney Colmore Bishop of Porto Rico and Haiti during a recent visit to the United states.
