Merle Odle editor. Review established 1891. Republican Quot 1844. And expediency demand this and without it there can be no National Success. If president Wilson Hopes for the furtherance of the High ends of civilization through the action of the United states he will be obliged to accede to the reconstruction of his Cabinet on these Richmond Marsh in economic world.

Or. Kennedy con Wise though this feature of the leg trusts the actual condition of affairs isolation was not in mentioned by the a with the ridiculous statement in the Wilson Campaign managers when i democratic platform of last year they were seeking votes last fall. Wise or otherwise farm labor is scarcer and costlier. Obviously machinery must be used most of it horse drawn. It follows that the increase in our horse population is merely a sociological phenomenon. Nor is it Likely that even in the near future will the horse be displaced by the motor. There Are More than six million farms in the country which Means that there Are but four horses to the average farm. Unless the motor truck can take the place of More than four draught animals it is not a profitable investment. Paradoxical As it May seem the faster the horse population increases the better for the general introduction of the motor truck. Not until the average number of horses for each farm exceeds four will it pay to substitute motors for Muscles. In cities it is otherwise. Dray horses Are disappearing from the streets of Chicago at the rate of 3500 a year. The records of the Chicago Bureau of licenses reveal that the number of horse drawn vehicles decreased from 58,115 in 1910-11 to 49,582 in 1915-16, and that motor vehicles increased from 11,088�&Quot to 43,129 during the same five year period. In Twenty years horses will no longer be seen on the streets of new York Philadelphia Boston an insulted Fla according to several statements by West Lebanon citizens denied considerable excitement was stirred up in West Lebanon recently by i insulting remarks alleged to have been made about the u. S. Flag and j soldiers by Fred Boesche who con-1 ducts a store in that place. It is said that for some time irresponsible youths of that place have i teased and tormented Boesche until he made numerous remarks slurring old glory and our soldiers and which was then taken up by the older citizens who we understand made things rather Lively for him. A Strong feeling developed in the Vicinity against him and sheriff Mcferren was called and the matter settled. Boesche last week pub shed a statement in no Uncertain language in a county paper denying the charges in Toto. That 10,000 new routes s Maga-2,500,000 additional people have Quot me. G. A. R.
