THE FOURTH 0? JULY.
This may well be called the "Glor
ious Fourth" for sun rises upon
a world once more at peace.
True, tho peace is not all that
men hoped for. The treaty has
been signed by the Germans with
protests and grumblings which
promise little for their honest, ful
filment of its terms. But the deed
is done. The world stands free at
last from the immediate presence or
threat of war.

ways a time for signal rejoicing. In

marks the birth of new hope for the
America has justified once more
the courage and the foresight which
the workers have stacked the dishes
and joined the shirkers who have
been talking crochet. They discuss:
How to get rid of ants; the terrible
experience they once had with bed
bugs; the greed and iniquity of
landlords; the greed and destruct-
i veil ess of tenants; the-cost of food;
the narrow skirts; the suspicions of
Arabella that the laundress is mak
ing off with the handkerchiefs.
Xobody has a very good time. N'o
body says anything interesting,
helpful. worth saying or worth
listening to.- Everybody is relieved
when the party breaks up.
Yet, deep down, everyone has a
vague warming, a little outflow of
affection for. the family as a whole
and for its individuals. There is
something about the homely hos
pitality, something about the meet
ing of the clan that comforts that
curious object, the human heart.
Cannot somebody "reconstruct"
the family party? Cannot some
genius assume that relatives are
people, with real ideas, real inter
ests, real things to talk about, real
gifts to share?
So soon will childhood be youth,
youth maturity, old age silent!
WORLD WAR'S TOLL MORE
THAN 7,500,000 LIVES
The world war cost the lives of
","82, 300 soldiers of all countries;
the money cost, was between $185,
000,000.000 and $195,000,000,000;
in shipping, the toll was 23.005.383
tons of merchant vessels and 1,882,
125 tons of war vessels.
j These figures were compiled by
the war department at the request
of Senator McCumber, republican, of
Xorth Dakota, and were made pub
lic by him as the most telling rea
son why there should be a League

It will cost little in proportion to
the pleasure it will give. We econ

but the war is over, and this is vic

It is an excellent way to celebrate..
The value of music in the scheme of
life, its influence for good and
happiness and recreation, have
steadily advanced in people's under
standing during recent years. Com
