Some newspapers would have pub
lished false and sensational reports
from Gary, no doubt. But even were
all the newspapers sensationally ly
ing, their lies would do no more
harm than the wild rumors which
will be generated in the darkness of
the Gary censorship.
There ought to be a way to check
irresponsible newspaper reporting
A resort to the medieval darkness of
no free news at all is not the way. It
makes a bad matter worse. General
Wood, a professional soldier, has
dealt with the problem in the accus
tomed military way. But this isn't
a military country. Secretary Baker
at least should realize the peril in
what has been done. State Journal.
General Wood went from Omaha,
where he held sensational and mal
icious journalism largely responsible
for a murderous mob. into the strike
field at Gary. Indiana. Doubtless he
found irresponsible news reporting
going on there, also. These experi
ences presumably account for hU
unprecedented action, an act of
doubtful constitutionality, in set
ting up a press censorship in the
Gary district.
A tree is' known by its fruits.
Leave out, for a moment, all abstract
questions of constitutional liberties,
of fundamental human rights, of
American tradition. Consider them
as dead. Then judge this act by
its probable practical consequences.
No news can come oftt of Gary
now save what the military authori
ties give out. That means, no one
knows what is going on at Gary.
Maybe the military authorities give
out all the truth, maybe part of the
truth, maybe absolute lies. There
were all these grades under the mil
itary censorship in Europe. The pub
lic can only guess as to which they
get from Gary.
The result? Every manner of talc
will get afloat and will be believed.
Djdn't we have them in war, one dis
turbing nightmare after another?
And since only the censor could tell
and no ono knew whether he was
allowed to tell the truth or not, there
was no way to check these tales.
Books are now being written devot
ed to the correction of the flocks of
wild fables generated under the
war censorship.
General Wood drops the curtain
upon a strike at Gary. America con
tains an element bent upon generat
ing disrespect for law an abhor
rence of government. This censor
ship gives this element its chance.
They can and will spread tales of
slaughter and of oppression at Gary
and there will be no way of proving
the tales false. Secrecy is the pro
tector of lies. Mystery is the source
of superstition. The dropping oi the
veil at Gary will increase the coun
try'a unrest. All experience In such
matters proves as much. That is the
It might be considered that a
rural district stretching over into
the borders of two or three adjoin
ing counties, with farm houses far
apart and their occupants people .f
fourteen different religious denom
nations, might offer a fairly good
excuse for abandoning divine wor
ship in public.
'One such district, however, has
settled the matter by starting a
community church, which has been
r. teting at the most centrally locate
cd school house. The creed of the
church is simple: "In essentials.
Unity; In non-oesntials. Liberty
In diversity. Charity; la all things
Mirist first." Not a bad creed for
every-day living! The pastor is v.
The church has been in successful
and harmonious operation for two
years, and its membership has
grown to such dimensions that the
congregation now plans a church
edifice. The community idea is to
be extended to the general work and
play of thp church. There are to
be play grounds, gymnasium and
tennis courts as part of the equip
ment. To help finance the building the
woman of the church chose a loca
tion on one of the main traveled
automobile roads, and at a stand
well back under the big oak trees,

The Japanese beetle seems never
to have been included in the gentle

The Japanese beetle ' is an im
rartial creature and practices Its

Naturallly the department of ag

foliage has been established around

which harbor the beetle are being
cleaned out, soil in which the

of handpicking and destroying is

Influenza epidemics are a biennial
evil. The epidemic of 1890 was
followed by a milder form of 1891.
The return of the "flu" seems there
fore unavoidable this fall and wint

maladies were observed as precur

importance of such a reliable remedy
as every family has in Triner's
American Elixir of Bitter Wine.
This remedy acts remarkably in all
intestinal disorders. It cleans- out
the intestines and keeps them clean.
It stimulates the bowels to normal
funqtion and invigorates the di
