The passing of our merchant
marine was not entirely due to the
civil war. The change from wooden
to iron ships and the attempt of the
United States to better the condition
of American sailors by statutory
regulations had much to do with it.
.Most of the countries engaged in
the war of examination are classed
as Christian nations; and yet the

j The governor of Kansas is urging
j the farmers of his state to donate a
miliion bushels of wheat and a quar
ter of a million bushels of corn to the
Belgians who are suffering- on ac
count of the invasion of their country
by the Oerman army. This would
mesn a donation valued at more than
a million dollars, and this amount of
: grain would provide bread for a large
number of people during the winter
months. It would be a most generous
act for the farmers of Kansas to do,
and it would no doubt be generously
appreciated by the Uelgian people.
And it would also be appreciated by
the nations of Europe that are at
war, and that are responsible for the
deplorable conditions of the Belgians.
It would gie these nations more
mo. ley with which to buy more guns,
and would ghe them more time to
kill each other and produce still
greater suffering. It is so distract
ing, you know, to have to stop light-
. ing to feed the babies and to see that

It is encouraging to learn that,
despite the high cost of living and
other hardships, the percentage of
almshouse pauperism in this land of
the free has been steadily reduced
since 1880, according to the census
figures. Which indicates that, re
gardless of increasing extravagance,
automobiles and tariff changes, one's
chances of landing in the poor hou.-.e
are reduced from year to year, and
this should convince people, that this
is a great country. It will also
please the women to learn that their
chances of landing in that humiliating
though comfortable institution are
considerably less than that of the
men. Doubtless tne women will con-
ten' that their advantage in this re
spect is due to their greater economy
and business acumen. Which the men
will contend is flap-doodle and will
offer their life insurance as exhibit

It is two years till another election
of county and state officials, and then
the whole business b, do over again,
with the addition of president and
vice president. The democrats were
very successful, taking the country
over, and there is nothing sure how
the country is to go at that time. If
the democrats had not have gotten
too sanguine as to the result of the
recent election they could have had at
lea.-.t -10 or 50 more majority in the
house, but too much dependence was
placed in the personal popularity of
President Wilson to carry them
through. While l'resident Wilson is
one of the greatest and most popular
presidents this country has ever host
ed of, the candidates should be so
much ir.tcre.-ted in being re-elected

week in his own behalf. This i.eglcct
has not only defeated one or two
democratic congress;-men, but at least
fifty have been thusly defeated. It is
hoped that this defeat will not occur
soon again, and that two years hence
the democrats will regain most of
what they have lost this year.

years he has battled grimly to unite
his party and make it popular by its
very achievements. The party is r.n

party, with a leader equaled by none
