Sudden Rise In Prices
The sudden and alarming rise in the price of
food, following a steady rise for many months
past, bears on its face evidence of manipulation.
There is no such shortage of production, no such
excessive exportation, as to justify the violent
increases. Many commodities are increasing in
price which are not affected directly or indirectly
by European war conditions. Commodities
which are not exported at all are increasing in
price at a rate more rapid than other commod
ities which arc shipped to Europe in enormous
The retailers now charge that wholesalers
have begun a widespread movement for boost
ing nrkes. havina discovered that the fiction "on
account of the war" is accepted by many people
11 I valid excuse for increased costs. The re
tailer receives the first kick from the ultimate
consumer, and. of course, he passes it along.
But there is evidently much truth in what the
retailer says.- He cannot mislead the public very,
long, for wholesale prices are accessible. The
wholesaler must clear his skirts, too. if he can.
In many cases it will be impossible for hint to
give a reasonable excuse for some of the out
rageous increases. -
It is well-nigh impossible to establish the fact
of conspiracy in price raising when the practice
covers the continent. Dealers may not conspire
at all. but merely ensaie in the same of follow
your leader, without knowing who the leader may
lie. Spontaneous price raising seems to be a
phenomenon of business as mysterious as spon
taneous combustion. No one is personally guilty,
and yet all combined are guilty. .
,., Nevertheless, the government .cannot fail to
make the most rigid inquiry into price raisins:.
The dealers in most cases are engaged in inter
state commerce, and if tbey are in a conspiracy
they are criminals, for whom a penalty is pro
vided. If they are merely common victims of the
hard workings of the law of supply and demand.
the fact can be ascertained. The Department of
justice is fully equipped for an investigation into
this situation, and no work can be performed
which is of more importance to the people. Let
the lacts be ascertained at once.
Nebraska Goes Dry.
Out of complicated snd delayed returns the
one thing that stands out unquestioned is that
Nebraska has gone dry by adopting the prohibi
tion amendment to the state constitution.
For many the result on wet and dry has had
a more intense interest than the result on the
presidency and the campaign has been waged
on both sides with an energy and vehemence
even greater than the political contest between
We have had a great deal of speculation and
prediction as to what would happen if the
amendment carried and we will soon have the
actual demonstration which- we take it -will fall
short of what was promised by either wets or

War Debts snd Dear Money.
Prof. Irving Fisher of Yale university, writing
in The Annals of the American Academy of Politi
cal and Social Science, discusses the probable ef
fects of huge war debts on the world cost of
money when peace comes. The daily war bill of
Great Britain, France and Germany now approxi
mates, $60,000,000, equal to three-fourths of the
daily revenues of these nations in the year preced
ing the war. This is exclusive of the destruction
of property and loss of productivity. By the end
of the current year the five great powers of
Eurooe will have contracted debts asn-reKatinn
$88,000,000,000, four rffd one-half times greater
than the total of debts in 1913, and the end of
debt building is not in sight.
When war ends European financiers will be
confronted with the problem of converting short
time loans into long time bonds. At the same
time the rebuilders of shattered Europe will be
in the market for money. The demands of busi
ness checked or suspended by war will absorb
vast sums of borrowed money, and the prospect
of big returns from revived enterprise insure high
rates for quick accommodations. These, together
with mountainous taxes. Prof. Fisher regards as
forces which make for high interest rates in Eu
rope. To some extent, he points out, money cost
in the United States will be advanced, but not
as pronouncedly as In Europe.
Prof. Fisher emphasizes what other American
observers have heretofore pointed out the rea
sonable certainty of an exodus of tax-burdened
people to the United States. "If the war con
tinues much longer," he writes, "the government
bondholders will be virtual owners of Europe
for years to come. The income tax for the rich
may reach 50 per cent. The taxes on the poor
may be equally oppressive. Rather than pay
tribute for a lifetime to the-bondholders, the
taxpayers may, by the wholesale, emigrate to the
United States. Wealthy people, of more fore
sight than patriotism, after taking good care to
sell out any holdings of government bonds, may
change their residence to where taxes may not
seem to be confiscation, ; The fate of European
nations would then he similar to that so common
to 'assessment' insurance companies, which, after
gaily loading up with Obligations, lose their pays
ing membership and go into bankruptcy." -

AgricuHurs in the Future.
Nations now at war will 'not forever engage
in fighting, and even with the armies in the field,
economists and politicians at home are planning
against the day when the noise and the gas and
all the elements of destruction will be hushed and
done away with. In Canada a genuine boom in
agriculture is anticipated after the war, and the
government of the Dominion, as well as of the
several provinces, is making plans against the
time. In New Brunswick, for example, the lands
that will be available for settlement are being
surveyed and diyided on an established plan, with
an eye to the needs of the farmers and the farm
communities of .the future. The general scheme
is one that will be found attractive, especially
by men of small means, who are seeking in agri
culture an opportunity for employment, and the
future of Canadian farming may be ki some way
affected by it.
Of more-immediate interest to the American
farmer, perhaps, is the future of Russia. The
wheat fields of lower Russia have long been the
principal rivals of the United States, even with
the restrictions forced on Russian commerce by
England and Germany, It is not improbable that
the more oppressive of these restrictions will be
removed as one result of the war. This, with
modern methods of farming, will bring Russia
into the European field on better terms than ever.
Still more significant is the fact that for at
least a decade western Siberia has been under
going a transformation that is not generally
understood1 by the world outside. For ten years
at least immigration to Siberia has been around
300,000 a year, the settlers for the most part tak
ing up agriculture. The Russian government has
quietly encouraged this movement, as well as
the establishing of the farmers on a basis of con
tent. Great expansion in this region is looked
for when peace comes. . . '
These and other similar movements affect
the American farmer in that, as production in-1
creases elsewhere, his market is cut off. In
general, the progress of agriculture in the remote
regions of the world is interesting, because it
meets the proposition that consumption has been
overtaking production at a rate that boded ill
for the future. It will be a long time before
the world' goes hungry because it cannot produce
enough to feed all. -
In recent years public indignation and strong
arm threats greeted the anthracite coal barons
on every side. Their' alleged cruelties to the in
dependent miner startled the country and pro
voked measures of defense, lest the big monop
oly strangle competition, throttle the tittle fellow
and gouge the consumer. In the light of pres
ent day conditions in the coal markets of New
York, Philadelphia and other Coast cities, the
sobs of yesteryear appear quite humorous. Offi
cial statements show that the trust has not
changed wholesale prices, while the independents,
the little fellows, have canceled contracts, boosted
prices and are taking all the traffic -will bear.
A modest fortune of $58,000 survives the good
deeds of a practical champion of down-and-out-
ers, the late Ben Hogan of Chicago. How much
of it originated in the prize ring cannot be stated,
Probably the greater part. In that comfortable
pile no doubt are some of the huge stock of dol
lars with which Omaha's bygone sports backed
Hogan in his bout with Allen at Hamburg, la.,
forty-five years ago. Tradition has it that the
event for twelve hours reduced the population of
Omaha to women and children.

Madeleine Annunciata Davis
I've been here, the prettiest town in the world
Nevers, Nierre four hours from Paris, since
June 14 and now we are having a lull and I can
return to civil life for a day or two. However,
it may interest you my struggles in Paris.
Came down here 7une 14, again a victim of
errors.. They had not been informed by the
medicine chief of the place td expect me. Once
in I am well in. For a while I worked eighteen
hours every third day and twelve hours the other
days. I wrote to Paris headquarters. Now ex
pect few heart sobs. I began in Ware) L Salle
des Gravement Blesses. No man admitted who
has two legs, two arms and a head unless he is
as full of holes as a colander. Sounds sad? I
never laughed so much nor so often."- I begsn
by calling them "embusque's" and they demanded
what then was I if with two legs, two arms and
a head and not working on the firing line I
must be "la plus grande embusque'e." The Ger
mans can shoot away everything every or any
part of a man, but always there remains his
courage and his sense of humor if he be French.
A droll poilu a Parisian whom I called M. le
Comte de Paris and who addressed me as Mme.
la Marquise de Californe made his toilet with
only a tuny tin wash basin and always sang
Paris street songs. "Figure you, Madame le
Marquise, how idotic are those boches. Tiens!
They shoot off one of my legs I already had
two neither particularly symmetrical. France
will give me another latest style, perfect shape
but figure you what a catastrophe if those
awful Germans had shot away my beautiful
falsetto voice. Not even France would give me
A huge Cdrsican told me to call him when
I went off duty at midnight he had a purge to
take. I called him and he said: "I only wanted
to be called to wish you goodnight for it is
sad for a lady to be out in the night alone." Can
you beat that for politeness?
Wrote a letter to New York Herald Paris
edition asking for things. I got a phonograph
and several associations are sending me bandages.
Wish you would print a plea for me. Are there
any doctors who would give us second-hand
instruments? I am now serving in the bandag
ing and operating room and our instruments are
so inadequate. For our poilus we need every
thing like shirts, night shirts, hose, dressing
gowns of canton flannel have not got the nerve
to ask for woolen. We need towels. The lads
need tobacco and cigarets checkers and any old
games, for the nights are so long and painful.
We can use anything, new or old. We are
not asking for diamonds nor automobiles. We
have what we call an automobile. I sent up a
cry for help and Mr, Williams, secretary of the
American Ambulance at Neuilly took up a collec
tion and bought me a wheel table to roll my
lads into the dressing room. I put an American
flag on it and call it Bill." Bill works overtime.
We had thirty-two German wounded. I was
called to care for them and assist Madame le
Comte Lufumiere .to do the dressings. They
don't stand pain like the French. A French lad
on the operating table is a scream. I have
learned all the slang ot the streets trom lads on
the table. They like me because I am what is
called "rigoleuse" (lover of laughter).
We may move out of our present quarters,
the normal school, into the old Hotel de France.
Hone we do. for there are little stoves here and
there is steam heat there. As to the war, you
probably know more than I do. French papers
are not filling, but it looks like another year. :
There was one wounded German prisoner
rather more intelligent than the rest, who, in
speaking 'of the captured towns, related that
immediately boarding schools are opened up to
which German children over 4 are sent, with
short vacations. These children even at play
must speak German. The idea is to make good
ucrman citizens 91 ,tnem ana to alienate tnem
from their parents. He could see nothing cruel
in this. i
Took a half day's vacation Sunday and
worked at the railway station at the Cantone. I
don't know how many soldiers from passing
trains we fed soup, stew, salad and cider. Some
of us took up collections from civilians on the
train. The German wounded were fed exactly
as our own wounded, coffee and bread in the
morning, soun. meat, vegetable, and one-half liter
fit wine at noon, the same at night, with the ad
dition ot salad. 1 he best surgeons operated on
them. When necessary they were sent over to
another hospital for radiographs of their
wounds. They had a beautiful garden to' walk
1 hey were allowed to write home twice a
month letters sent through the Swiss consul,
of course. There were ten sentinels at the door.
They were a peaceful lot, not anxious to leave.

A clip of a girl in Philadelphia, tomboy by
inclination and only 15, led juvenile court officers

hunters, and shinned up and down rain spouts,
occasionally turning handsprings. Reinforce

would fill a movie artist's soul with joy.
