The British government told the

National prohibition, no doubt,
will mean the creation of several

know several deserving patriots who
may be relied upon to accept the
position of Oflicial Taster.
An Iowa storekeeper became con

If you will just have a little

plant a flock of date palm trees
right now and sit around and wait.
The department of agriculture hands
us the following information:
"At the age of 100 years the tree
can bo tapped for an alcoholic bev
erage, a gallon of which can be
drawn off each day for a whole fort-
nigntafter which it ceases to be
palatable. The date palm is now
being successfully cultivated in the
United States." Cincinnati Enquir
THE COST OF REPARATION.
American engineers who have
made a survey of the dty. or what
was the city, of St. Quentin, report
that the Hun devastation has been
so complete that the cheapest and
quickest way to rebuild it will be to
raze the whole city and build an en
tirely new one. Before the war St
Quentin was the industrial capital
of the department of the Aisne. It
had numerous textile plans, print
ing establishments1, foundries, ma
cl'ine shops, agricultural implement
factories and other factories.
The American officer who reports
on the dstruction of the city
which Drevious to the war had a
population of over 50,000, says: "In
perhaps fifty houses that I examin-
ed there was not a stick of furniture
nor a picture on the wall, not an
ornament left. Even . the electric
wiring and the gas fixtures had
been carried off." That was not
due wholly to looting by private
soldiers. It was done by the orders
of the commanding officers. The
assessing of the cost of reparation
is not done by making "estimates."
it is the result of adding up the
losses found in oflicial reports made
by competent engineering oilicers.
IT'S THE SAME GERMANY.
Kurt Eisner. Bavarian, seems to
lie a human sort. It was Kurt who
said in an interview when he came
into power at Munich: "But I don't
want to be a statesman. I want to
tell the truth." While it was ob
vious hat a man with so quaint an
aniMtion could not hope to have a
future in Germany h!s wistful as
pirations won him a measure of
sympathetic interest from many per
sons. it recalled tne old hymn,
sung in the days before statesman
ship had attained its present per
fection. "I Want to Be an Angel and
With the Angels Stand
Mr. Eisner has agian shown his
human qualities by expressing dis
appointment at the result of the
derman elections. His own party
was badly beaten in Bavaria. We
assume pulpit and press must have
been for him, and that he was in
dorsed by all the civic bodies. The
fact that his party elected-only four
representatives out of a total of
156 seems to show that he must
have had the support of the reform

Mr. Eisner uses words which show

&ud how well he recognizes that it
must be borne. "Such a state of
affairs," he says, "is intolerable."
So, of course, it is a state of affairs
that will have to be tolerated.
But it gives us all occasion to re-
fleet that, despite all that has hap
pened in Germany, Germauy and
the German people are unchanged.

THE AIR ROUTE TO THE POLE.
Doubtless the proposed aeroplane
expedition to the North Pole is
feasible in these days of long voy
ages through the air. The plans of
the Aero club have been well work
ed out. but the purposes of the in
tended exploration are not so clear.
Henry Woodhouse, a member of the
board of governors, says that "from
a national standpoint it is abtolute-
ly necessary to explore and map all

Most of the islands and water
ways in the Arctic north ot tne
American continent are clarified as
British possessions, and Greenland
belongs to Denmark. It is only fur
ther west, between Beaufort sea and

expect to find new lands in the un
charted, waters north of Alaska that
would properly come under control
of the United States. Of course.

The easiest and quickest way to
get rid of a cold is to take Chamber
lain's Cough Remedy. This prepara
tion has been in use for many years
ami its value is fully proven. No mat
ter what remedy you. use, however,
care must be taken not to contract a
second cold before you have recover
ed from the first one, and there is
serious danger of this. A man of
