SUBSCRIPTION RATES $2.00 THE YEAR IN ADVANCE Each of our subscribers will find the date to which his or her subscription is paid, as shown by our books, printed on the paper or wrapper, following the name of the subscriber. If there is an error in the date we would be pleased to have our attention called to the fact. OFFIC'LAL GIl~ AND COUNTY PAPF_2~ Adulation is all right in its place, but it is impossible to see merit in Mr. Josephus Daniel's enthusiastic assertion that Mr. Wilson's "fourtpen demands" rank with the historic utterances of Mr. Lincoln at Gettysburg. Some way we have never heard that Mr. Lincoln's address required amendment, amplification or inter- pretation.--New York Herald. Even if the partisans of the uresident should prevail and a Democartic committee of Reconstruction should bp appointed, there would be little danger of the enactmen of any unwise leg- islation such a committee might recommend. The Republicans will assume control ,f congress on March 4th and it is not likely that much reconstruction will be enacted before that time. Tracer Wanted Mrs. Bessie DaM of Herbst, in Howard county, is reported as deeply distressed because the body of her father, who died in a westprn city, has been iost in transit. Let us trust, however, that bet distress will be a measure relieved by the thought that the fault rests with our benevolent government rather than with a wicked and rapacious railroad corporation.--Fort Wayne News. Now the Saving Day ii i Thus far the cost of the war has been much less than expect- ed. For the present fiscal year $24,000,0o0,0(I0 were appropriated and $7,0o0,000,000 more for defi,,iencies. Thus far we have spent only about $7#00,0,0,000 of whkh $2,0i~0,0~'0,000 have been loan~d the allies. It is doubtful if we shall spend more than $15,- 000,000,000. We have now enough money in sight to carry us almost to the end of the calendar year. It seems unnecessary un- der such circumstances to ask for $8,000,000,000 in cash taxes. The burden will be too heavy for many industries to bear.--Phila- delphia Inquirer. Following Russia's Footsteps In spite of the awful war.lug of Russia, now gisen over to anarchy and starvation, the German insurgents set out upon the road that leads to the tyranny of one class oyez all others, that ends inevitebly in social disorganization, the horror ot indiscrimi- nate murder and ruin, until reason a.d law resume their sway. Russian ignorance has no counterpart in Germany, it is to be hoped that the sober sense of the people will set limits to the rav- ages of the red mob. The war organization of the countries united against Ger- many must evidently be maintained until the Germans have a re- sponsible government.~New York Times. Two Kinds of Men There are two kinds of men who run for public office--maybe more. One kind asks to be elected in order that he may perform certain stunts which he promis~s to perform if emoted, ~He will gu~ra, tee to vote this way or that on some question that folks are wrought up about and his promises sometimes souod good. That sort of man may do in drowsy times of peace, but he wop'~ do now. Y,u might as well write a letter to congress as to send him. The other sort is the fellow who has real brains and judg- ment, who promises very little except to do his best every day aud serve his country, tie will not go to congress ou a promise to pull wires and obtain any spevial legishtion to benefit farmers, la- borers or any other special class of people. He is just an honest man with brains to conceive and courage to act--that's all.- Orange Judd Farmer. i Food Prospects 1919 I "Famine is the mother of anarchy," declared Herbert Hoover in closing a remarkable address to the special conference of Federal t Food Administrators called to Washington recently. "From the inability of governments to secure food for their revolution and chaos. From an ability to supply their people I stability of government and the deieat , f anarchy," atid. the speaker. "Did we put it on higher plane than our interests in the protection of our institutions, we must bestir ourselves in the s01u. tion o~ this problem." Mr. Hcover was making what many of his hearers believed t be his farewell address to the Food Administrators. He is now in Europe conferring with others over the entire world food situa- tion. His summing up of the food situation indicates so plainly that for the next .~ear, at least, some comprehensive re~umtion of the world's stock of foods will be necessary that it may be found advisable to continue the Food Administration .in soma" capacity for that length of time, Hoover, do~s not fav~ govern- ment control of fooJ any Iovger dle the problem of supply and demand. "It is my ,i initiative. We secured its exec~on during the war as to the willing cooperation of 95per cent Of ths txades of the country, but under tions it would degvnerate into an harassing blue law." ! thus takes a stand quite different from that a l~rmaaeat t~tum of o.r national Jile.
