WOMAN'S DRESS OF THE DAT.
What about women's dress?
Shall the law step in and lay
down rules in a field that properly
belongs to modesty alone?
Women themselves are raising
these questions, and women are
answering them. Some of them, not-
ably the Lincoln (Neb.) Women's
club, have appealed to the legisla
ture of the state to enact laws that
shall oblige women to do under pen
alty what their sense of propriety
should lead them to do of their own
motion. The Lincoln women declare
that many of their sisters girls
and matrons are going to an inde

bodices, fore and aft, in the brevity
of their skirts, in transparency of

"We are welcoming the soldiers
who have returned from the rain of
shot and shell. Shall we face them
with a greater danger here? Every
woman who leaves her home in a
half-nude state to attend a dance or
dinner represents such danger."
Mrs. Wentz's question is more
pertinent than Impertinent. Her
choice of the adjective "half nude"
is not mathematically irreproach
able, but from the standpoint of her
purpose it is well within the bounds.

WOMEN AS FARMERS.
There are 273,000 women farm
ers in the United States, according
to the annual report of Mrs. W. II.
Hubert national director of the
woman's land army. The largest
percentage of women engaged in
permanent agricultural pursuits fol
lows poultry raising; there are oth
ers who have undertaken- orchard
ing or the management of alfalfa
ranches in Oregon, Colorado, etc.;
truck gardening is followed to a cer
tain extent. Mrs. Hubert speaks of
a "remarkable movement of women"
toward the farms and away from
the factories.' But it would seem
hardly fair to rank as "farmers"
those women and girls who volun
teered for farm service during the
war and who returned to their occu
pation, if such they had, when the
season was over.
There is nothing on the surface
which leads to the hope that Ameri
can women arc going in for farming,
but it must also be remembered that
the majority are used to city life
and have no 'leaning toward the
country save as a place to visit occa
sionally. It requires courage and
confidence to start out in an untried
direction, especially if lacking in
both knowledge and capital. No
doubt these city women would be an
asset to a country community. They
would bring new ways and new
ideas, and might easily be a develop

SOLD BY DRUGGISTS EVERYWHERE
THE mPRACTICALS AT WORK.
The country has had much oppor
tunity of late to observe what may
be called the impractical mind in
operation. What we mean is, the
man who used to protest against the
United States taking part in the war
on the ground that force could never
be cured by force. It Is the woman
who insists that critics of the pro
posed League of Nations are the ad
vocates of war.
These impractical minds are us
ually exceedingly idealistic. The
trouble is they don't know what
practical measures to adopt to make
their ideals come true. They will
stray away after all sorts of un
workable propositions because some
how the instinct ofr reality seems
to be left out.
When Henry Ford set sail on his
fantastic peace expedition he gave
a perfect example of the impractical
mind in operation. He wanted to
get the boys out of the trenches by
Christmas. He was so naive as to
believe that all that was necessary
was to get the leaders to discuss the
matter and reason would at once
prevail. His aim to get the boys
out of the trenches was fine, his
The case of Mr. Ford is especial
ly interesting because it proves that
a mind may be built In water tight
compartments. His is practical
enough in automobile manufacture.
It slips in the realm of social rela
tions. In general, however, the im
practical mind reaches its finest
flower when it develops in a more
or less artificial world. Tolstoy was
a conspicuous instance. In Ilus-sia
he was out of touch with the main
currents of progress and his genius
developed on eccentric lines.
College teachers, clergymen, Chau
tauqua lecturers arc under a pecul
iar temptation, for they naturally
deal with theories many of which
cannot be tested by actual exper
ience. In addition they are in con
tact with immature mind.4, or with
uncritical minds, and so fail to get
the wholesome corrective of keen
criticism. Some of these men, of
course, keep their feet on the ground
and grow into that exceptional and
wonderfully useful combination of
the practical man who is at the
same time an idealist. Many, how
ever, fail to gain the experience
with which to check up theories,
and so go off on curious tangents.
The minister may preach a ser
mon on abolishing war, and if he is
eloquent his congregation will go
away saying, "What a splendid ser
mon." The few dissenters rarely ex
press criticism. It Is so much pleas
anter to be agreeable. The profes
sor may tell his class that hereafter
We are to substitute a just concert
of the powers for the old, bad bal
ance of power, and so are going to
avoid war. And there may be no
body In the classroom with sufficient
experience and detailed knowledge
of European history to point out
how the concert of thepowers al
ways has brokn down into a balance
of power. '
In the campaign of 189fi we had
a classic illustration of how the
theorists plumped on free coinage
of silver. The issue, however, was
so presented that it attracted only
the most undiscriminating of the
impracticals. The issues of pacifism
and of the League of Nations in its
extreme form got the higher circles.
With some notable exceptions tho.se
who were strongest against the
United States entering the war have
been the most ardent supporters of
the next patent remedy for war.
The world situation of the last
four years has been a fertile field
for all sorts of theorists to exercise
themselves in. A flood of ideas has
resulted, which call for cold and
perhaps unsympathetic scrutiny
from the realists who "understand
something of the nature of this
striving, passionate, unreasoning
world we live in. K. C. Star.

thing Definite Done.
from Wednesday's Dally
What about that night school,
anyhow? !Vnd it was to teach Ameri
canism, at that. Has it gone the
way of the world? We should have
the school in operation and doing
good work by this time. Committees
were appointed to look after the
various phases incident to its estab
lishment, but nothing has as yet
been' heard from them. The library
was suggested as a place for hold
ing the school. As the publicity com
mittee, we will have to keep hump
ing if we get the others awake. Per
haps we had better get a "Big Ben"
alarm clock anyway we had better
get a move on ourselves. The mat
ter of getting this thing moving is
up to somebody. Will they make
the proper move?

The Masonic Order of this city
have been very prosperous, in the
past and have been getting a num
ber of members as also have other
orders, for instance the Elks had to
obtain a special dispensation in ord
er to be allowed to Initiate the class
which applies for admission. Last
evening at the Masonic temple there
was some work in the advanced de
grees, and two candidates were giv
en the mysteries of the Royal Arch
Mason degree, they being Harris
Cook and C. C. liespain. With t he
renewed building, which should
commence, now the war is practical
ly over, this Mason business should
be profitable, t hat a good mason
should be in great demand. Anyway
these two estimable gentlemen have
been advanced to places of responsi
bility in the order of which they
are members and acquainted with
