Another official suggestion from

is to transfer the small boy into it,

SCRIPTURE FOR THE KAISER.
The kaiser, in his speech to the
Krupp . workers, showed himself
Komethintr of a student of the
Scriptures. Has he happened lately
to turn to Ezekiel vil, 25 and 27?
He might learn something to his ad
vantage by doing so:
Destruction cometh; and they
shall seek peace, and there shall be
The king shall mourn, and the
prince shall be clothed with desola
tion and the hands of the people of
the land shall be troubled: I will
do unto them after their way, and
according to their deserts will I
judge them; and they shall know
that I am the Lord.
A new brand of the disease for
merly known as la grippe, and first
attributed to France a quarter of a
century ago, is back in America
again with a Spanish trademark.
Spanish influenza is no joke, and
there is no inclination on our part
to make lis:ht of it. When the chief
medical men of civil and military
life advise that all places of public
gathering be closed and all camp::
and cantonments quarantined until
the germ is effaced, the humor of
the situation ceases to exist.
The "flu" would seem to be the
only bright spot on the kaiser's
horizon, so it is America's duty to
stamp it out, immediately.
Already it has stopped the call of
drafted men for the early October
contingent, and this is real help for
the Hohenzollerns. The war pro
gram must be put before everything,
so we are awaiting further orders
from the sanitary and medical
But there should be no hysteria
in the matter. A cold in the nose.
a headache or a fever does not neces
sarily imply the Spanish "flu." Let
us not wish this disease upon our
selves for the sake of notoriety
which is far from desirable.
We recall in the dim past the
kissing bug" scaie. Some girl was
bitten on the lip by an insect per
haps a wasp. The press picked up
the story, and in a short time every
harmless beetle that buzzed through
the ambient caused woeful shudders
was suspected of being a kissing

"Uncle" Henry Ford announces
that he will wear no party fetters,
lie believes in a chainless drive to
ward the Senate. No binding plat
form for him, no "specific obliga
tions" of any kind. No definite
principles. No political Ideas ex
cept such as may happen to occur
to him. Just Henry Ford. Those
who vote for him must take him
just like that and because a Voice
from Washington told them to.
But there is a tragic sadness in
his further assertion that he "hasn't
spent a cent, and won't," to aid lib

ably it. does not matter, as there is
another candidate in the field, run

CANADA'S WHEAT CROP.

ier estimates that the wheat crop
will be about one-fourth smaller
than last year's, and lhat there will

this result is in spite of a really
increased acreage, and most ener
getic effort in what Is naturally the
best wheat country in the world.
The cause is simply phenomenally

THE REPUBLICAN YARDMAN.

Nebraska, who was a candidate for
renominat ion to the seriate. Having
nominated Norris, however, the re
