A June dispatch says: "Denver

of our most easily amused cities,
ranking along with Toledo.
There are times when one wond
ers why Uncle Sam is not made to
pay a war tax on his own govern
ment, which frequently assumes the
proportions of a very costly luxury.
A Nebraska City man whose wife
worked exclusively for the K-l
Cross during the war says darned
socks feel like such a luxury now
that he id surprised there is no fed
eral tax on them.
IT ISN'T YOUR TOWN IT'S YOU
George Creel is going to launch
Into the promotion of memory de
veloping system. t5eorg is not sel
fish. .If he wished to benefit him
self, he would try to teach the- pub
lic to forget a number of things.
The more the farmer learns about
the town man's affection for the
daylight saving law, the more stren
uously he opposes it. Perhaps if he
finds out that its repeal will mean
more ftlec-p for the town man, lie
will consider the law- more favor
"Leaders of the Chines studi-nts

Shantung decision. signed their
names with their own blood." Th
plan may be a little antiquated, but
it is better aTter all than the P.ol
sbevik process of using somebody
else's blood for the purpose."
The sight of Chicago University
girls lolling about in the park
smoking cigarettes is not one to in
spire the commendation of the old
fashioned majority, who believe the
clearette woman's place is in the
home, or at least in the back seat
of a motor car with the top up.
"Twelve Democrats Injured in

Improbable, indeed, but not wo im-

Perhaps this particular man may
be pardoned if he declines to serve
as best man at any more of his
relatives weddings. "When my sis
ter was married," he tells us "the
bridegroom asked me the day be
fore the wedding to be in the pro
cession. I had to quit work in the
afternoon to rehearse with them.
There was no time to buy the fall
suit I had Intended to get later, ih
I had to rush In and get a hand-me-

Americans would try to beat the

shortly after July 1.
However, it appears that women
can vote in the democratic primar

les, the general elections don t

The sudden appearance of a hortc

t brews the motor driver into much
the same sort of a panic a., the early
motor cars did the horse drivers.
What is more natural than that

normal prices, tires and motor cars

rents and other necessities?
You might as well spare your
self the pain and consequences of

The German national assembly
proposes to set up a court to inquire
into who started the war. Per
haps the court will find a helpful
hint in the declaration ju.-t made
by General Von Bernhardt that the
only fault attaching to the ex
kaiser is that he didn't start the
war soon enough.
My dear friend, it is -only about
three weeks till we will be fadfe to
face with the glorious Fourth of
July. And while taking a glimpse
of the future, just remember that it
will be only about eight weeks
thereafter until you will be build
ing a fire in your furnace for the
winter. Gee, how swiftly the sum

of their best.

education to disabled men in his
army. It's a line thing. So are
most of the other countries.

Uncle Sam has not yet authority
for educating cripples though that
is coining. Legally these returned
soldiers are civilians. The KIks
have stepped to the front and vol
unteered the money necessary to J
provide vocational training for
these men along side the boys who

Bolshevism's economic .and po
litical failure cannot be too strong
ly emphasized. Had Lenine suc
ceeded in establishing his system
upon a firm basis it would take
more than a handful of Finns and
'sthonians to endanger Petrograd

Lenine has been absolute dictator

half. lie has had evwry opportunity
for trying out his rxpivinicnt. He
has tried it and failed. That is the
most important thing to consider.
Had he succeeded tho terrorism and
the outrages might -have counted
loss heavily against him. Ctrtainly
it would have taken large armies
a long time to .dislodge him. even
if the European governments had
decided upon a real campaign
against the bol-heviki.

quaintance. "Tollable, ' replied
Gabe Gosncll of Grudge, "but noth

there, if you meet a respectable"
looking man after 4 o'clock in the
afternoon, anywhere the least bit
off to one side, he's a hold-up and
robs you. And If you meet that one
that don't look respectable he's a
plain clothes policeman, and pounds
you because he thinks you're a hold
up. So I was practically on the
