NOT YET A PASSENGER ROUTE.
The demonstration of the prac
ticability of the trans-Atlantic air
passage furnished by t lie American
naval fliers has leJ many prophets
to conclude that this will present
ly bo the every day method of pas
senger carriage between this conti
nent and Europe.
It L permissible to have doubts
of it. There probably will be no
great rush to cross by the air route,
either for business or pleasure, un
til the chances, of getting there
without accident have been very
considerably increased. It may be
good sport to take the present
chances, but few would call it
pleasure and nobody would call it
business. Man now has few affairs
important enough to justify him in
flying across the Atlantic on a
mere point of time saving. Kven
men of the greatest affairs, whose
time we hear reported to be worth
fabulous sums in money, generally
prefer to do their hurrying in the
safest manner possible. After all.
their main object when they titart
anywhere is to get there. They
may have other business of a press
ing nature when they arrive, but
the more pressing it is the more
necessary it is that they should ar
rive In a' condition to attend to it.
When the motor car came into use
it occurred to many men in a hurry
that by taking all the Corners on
two wneeis tney could get sonie
whero a little quicker than by using
all four. But this did not prove to
be the case in all Instances. Some
got there that way, but others were
carried home in slower four-wheeled
vehicles. Gradually it came to be
recognized that the motor car's use
fulness was not confined to time
saving. Comfort, convenience and
safety were elements, and these
must be elements of the airplane's
usefulness before it can be Brought
into service as a passenger carrying
vehicle. It must be admitted that
those elements have not yet been
demonstrated, certainly not in sea
planes. Nor does it seem probable
that they soon will be.
It is now possible to cross from
New York to Liverpool in comfort
and reasonable safety in five days
On a great liner there is compan
ionship, sociability, restfulness and
the enjoyment and mental benefit
that most persons derive from travel
and change. A great many travel
ers even take slower boats by
Dreference. in order to make the
most of these opportunities. It
does. not seem probable, even when
the seaplane shall offer some mea
sure of safety, that it can offer much
in the way of comfort and the oth
er inducements that attract travel
ers to the big, liters. Not many
persons would find their accustomed
travel pleasures in goin at ninety
miles an hour, wrapped la furs and
wearing blinders. One might as
well go by pneumatic tube. On
the whole, it seems a ,ool guess
that the Atlantic aerial route will
be reserved for some time to come
to sportsmen who like the big game
and the danger tang, and perhaps
to the fast mail. The rest of us
will still go plugging along in
ships. K. C. Times.
GERMANY IN A RECEIVERSHIP.
The same elements of this country
that favored peace without victory
in the winter of 1916. are now loud
in condemnation of the severity of
the peace terms. It seems their
idea that Germany should go scot
.free and be taken at once into asso
ciation with other nations.
It happens, however, that there
are several things to be done be
fore there can be any such outcome.
Germany started on a hideous and,
cruel adventure that pretty nearly
ruined Belgium and Franco and that
inflicted terrible losses on Britain,
to say nothing of the fnited States.
Our first care must be to rehabili
tate these countries and see to it
that Germany is in a position not
to plunge the world into destruction
If the "poor, innocent Gorman
people" followed their leaders into
war without thinking, they will
have to keep right on following
their leaders in settling up with,
or without thinking, just as they
Apparently Germany had an iLea
fhe could go through bankruptcy
and set up in business again at the
old sta.ld. lWead fhc is under an
indeterminate receivership. It was
appointed with the idea of running
the property so as to meet the obli
gations. Germany must help to re
rtore the ruin she wrought in Bel
gium and France. She must put
back the shipping she destroyed. All
this involves a tremendous burden.
But otherwise the burden would fall
on those who were not responsible
for creating it. The burden must
bo borne so far as possible by the
guilty, not by the innocent. Ger
many delibertcly took this risk when
she began the adventure.
True, the nation is virtually put
under a long guardianship. She has
earned it by her conduct. She has
shown her inability to get along
with her neighbors as an independ
ent state. Now she will have the
opportunity to learn to get on with
others without pulling a gun on
every occasion. She will loam that
she can trust her neighbors by be
ing at her neighbors' mercy.
It is a bitter lesson. But it is
one that. Germany seemed unable to
learn In any less bitter way. As
F. P. A. puts it in the New York
Tribune: "Those who believe the
treaty is too severe, forget, perhaps,
that the war also was too severe."

Horse Sense About Tobacco
Good tobacco ought to be like a well
bred hoss all th' kick taken out but
all th' sperit left in.
You see, half the secret of makin' a good hoss is
in the breedin' an', half in the breakin'. Selectin'
tobacco that's grown right is only half of makin'
Velvet. The agein' is the other half.
Thar's only one kind of agein' that gets th' right
results Nature's own. Nature's no clock
watcher. She does a job right whether it takes
two years or two thousand.
So when she gets through with the fine Kentucky
Burley that we put awav in wooden hogsheads
for two years, it's just right.
It ain't been hurried none,

LOOKING TO TIIE FUTURE.
The constitutional convention,
which is to be held during the pres
ent years is of much importance in
the fact that the action of the con
vention will have much to do with
the future prosperity of the state,
in as much this convention should
do things which will make the acts
of the legislatures in the future be
more perfect in their workings. Dur
ing the first, portion of the bysj
tive assembly there are recesses,
when thero is but little done except
by a few committees. There is much

to be the only way of handling tlie
large number of bills which ac
cumulate during the session. Some
one with a bill which is really
harmful introduces the measure, and
then when the time comes at the
close it cannot be looked after with
the carefulness which should mark
the working of every member of
the legislature, and thereby goes
through. I. A. Harrows lieutenant
governor in his challenging the at
tention of the people to the matter
of a careful selection of the personal
of this commission, is doing a wise
act, and all should consider well the
duties which will devolve on this
commission in its selection.
WILL BE KEPT BUSY.
Former Congressman Connelly
was elected president of the Colby
Commercial Club. In addition he
has taken on himself the defense of
Postmaster General Burleson. His
two assignments are likely to make

fact he will be as busy for the next

and said to a native. "Show me the

he is winding his watch." Jack
