THE BEST LESSON ON WAR
The socialism and anarchism of
pre-war days, which the middle
class labored so earnestly to suppress
were indeed a menace to property..
How crave a menace they were is
shown clearly bv their exploits in
Russia. But the militarism which the
middle class accepted complacently
was a far greater menao to prop
erty and life. Where Bolshevism de
stroyed its billions, militarism de
stroyed its tens of billions. Where
bolshevism killed ithousands, militar
ism hundreds of thousands. Bolshe
vism is still a menace, no doubt, but
the middle class is mobilized to com
bat it. Militarism, is by no mean3
dead. If the middle class is as com
placent about it through the next
generation as it was through the last
we may look forward in twenty-live
or thirty years, to another world
war, coming to complete the destruc
tion of the last.
But will the middle class be so
blind? There is a ' missionary of
peace that will preach to every mem
ber of the class, every year, thru a
generation. That is the income tax.
And the propaganda of the income
tax will not be confined to America;
where it is perhaps least needed, but
will be conducted with even greater
vigor in England, France, Germany,
Italy. The war makers will find it
hard to arouse enthusiasm for an
other adventure in world domina

- , solved the problem of manufacturing
diamonds cheaply. -
Now the word is passed through
the diamond trade that it costs more
to produce the real ones from the
clay blowpipes of extinct volcanoes.
Sir William Crookes succeeded in
making artificial diamonds by crys-
small worthless as gems.
So the value of your diamonds is
safe for the present. Some day chem
ists will produce diamonds and gold
artificially, cheaply. That will be an
interesting period to live through
more interesting for the spectator
than the participant.
Appropos of your diamonds, have
you planned to mention them to the
assessor this year?
