FOOD IN GERMANY.
A German specialist writing in
the Cologne Gazette admits that
Germany has plenty of food on hand
if it is all used for food. He points
out that the' sugar harvest was very
large, but that much sugar had been
used as raw material for munitions
The same thing is true of the enor
mous potato crop; much of it was
used tc make spirits needed in war
factories. The question arises:
When they asked us for food, did
they plan to go on .turning their
potatoes into munitions?

These are the industrial condi

symmetrical record which the apost

KINGS THAT ARE HARMLESS.
Of ''the kings that arc left those
fit and most firmly who have least
power. Even in essentially demo
cratic countries like Belgium, Hol
land, Denmark, Norway and Great
Britain, there survives a consider
able royalist spirit partly tradition
al, partly based on the reasoned be
lief that royalty has value as a sym
bol, even after it has ceased to rule.
The more radical, who are contempt
nous of historic continuity, do not
find it worth while to quarrel with
a harmless vestige of mediaevalism.
as they consider the survival of
royalty In a democratic country, and
their efforts are apt to be directed to
more substantial reforms the need
of which would be quite as great
under a republic. In England this
half contemptuous, half tolerant at
titude has been expressed during
the war by the iconoclast II. G.
Wells, who was but mildly rebuk
ed for sentiments which in the days
of the earlier Georges would have
been likely to land him in jail. It is
possible that in some of the coun
tries where king and subjects have
got on harmoniously the revolution
may bring a wave of republicanism,
hut in general those monarchs who
have been content to serve as a sym
bol of national unity and a rallying
point for loyalty have least reason
to fear revolution. Springfield Re
LEND A HAND."
The outlook for prosperity was
never better in Nebraska than it is
today. The soil is in better condi
tion than it has been in for five
years, all the farmers coming to
Omaha say. The whole state has
been thoroughly wet down and a
very large part of it covered with a
blanket of wet snow. The contin
uance of the wheat prices and the
ccorts of the government to prevent
sudden fluctalion in prices, which
no doubt Will be generally success
ful, will make the next year one of
unusual prosperity for farmers In
all this region and that means the
ability to buy large quantities of
good3, making the cities also pros
perous. Practically tho same conditions
exist all over the country, making
the transition from a war basis to
one or peace comparatively easy.
The best statistical authorities say
that a rough estimate of $20,000,-
this year, including live stock
would be conservative. In the first
year of the European war the total
was under $10,000,000,000. A good
many people would be much hap
pier if they ceased to dwell upon
past calamities and suffering caused
by the war, and cast a glance Into
the prosperous future which seems
near at hand. It would be a good
time for the whole country to take
the advice of Edward Everett Hale,
given many years ago, and
"Look forward not backward,
and lend a hand." World-Herald
When the French returned after
forty-seven years into Lorraine they
found a state of things which we in
America, with our experience of the
pro-Germans, gained in the past
few years, can appreciate. The hulk
of the common people showed de
lirious joy at being restored to their
rightful country. A fraction large
ly made up of the rich and the
functionaries betrayed in their non
committal silence a German lean
Fortunately for the redeemed
provinces the German Gesslers had
confined themselves largely to the
walks of life where the patronage
of the late Imperial Government
would profit them. They may have
driven out the upper class of the
native element, but the rank and
tile of that element still are there.
How much of a bluff these immi
grant aristocrats could have thrown
in case of the referendum that Ger
many wanted to impose on the
provinces we can easily guess. Did
not a few hundred Teuton experts
in deception raise such a din
throughout the United States in
191 ti as to drown the voice of the
rest of the population?
The chief interest attaches not tj
the pro-German exceptions but to
the majority with its sense of French
nationality undiminished by half a
century of cruel captivity. The prov
inces that France lost have indeed
been found again.
CHECK ON FOOD PROFITEERING.
All retail stores dealing in food.
beginning tomorrow, are reqiurcn
by the Federal Food Board to dis
play "fair price" schedules. These
placards, which are to be furnished
by the board, will show the fair
maximum price to the retailer, the
maximum margin of profit allowed
to the retailer, and the fair maxi
mum price that should be charged
to the customer.
These schedules are to ho dis
tributed weekly by the food hoard.
and the asking or exacting of any
margin of profit in excess of that
prescribed will be regarded as prima
facie evidence of profiteering. Im
mediate prosecution will follow the
filing of a complaint.
That this plan of the food board
to stop profiteering has advantages
both for the customer and the re
tailer Is apparent. The storekeep
er is protected against any exorbi
tant demands from the wholesaler.
and as long as he keeps within the
limit of prices to the customer he is
free from criticism. The consumer,
on the other hand, is protected
against profiteering, and Is able at
all times to keep advised of the
fair wholesale and retail prices of
whatever he buys.
In order to assure the complete
effectiveness of the food board's
scheme the public must cooperate by
reporting any dealer who does not
keep within the scheduled limit.

they desire to visit with Grand

they take the part of the year when

enjoyable, a very good idea.
There are few indeed who escape

through with it quickly and with

observe the directions with each
