One'of.the cfrriousry interestine chases of
the" economic situation is disclosed bv the stale
,ment from the Department f Labor that'-the'
average weekly wage of the American worker jn
191$ would pay for oiily 77 per cent as much food
as in 1913r This and similar disturbance of '
value ratips has attracted the attention -of
economists and students generally, who are not
yet agreed as to whether the effect is (o be per
manent or not "It is,' however, generally as--iumed
thathe oldiretetions between commodi
tie and between commodities and effort wilt,'
never be entirely, restored 3 w '' '.'.'."
It is natural, perhaps, that, the most marked
change. should be noted in ioodf This is basic;
without a surplus of f,ood, man can hot givei
time or effort to anything else. For five years
the production ' of food was neglected as it
.iirvi rvaa ji. luc UISIUIJ' UI XI V UlzailUll. inC
whole world was engaged in war; food produc
ing countries were leader's "in the destructive
effort, put forth with utmost zeal and energy,
and surplus stores of eatables were exhausted",
while great areas were devastated jjy contend
ing, armies. The famine that ensued' is not a
remarkable manifestation in any sense." v'
The rise in foo'd values under these condi
tions is but the natural and unavoidable result
"6f lessened production and increased Consump
tion. Generally throughout tha, world, man is
striving to .restore -something like rfhe- normal
balance between supply and demand for food.
But the changed relation of food to other arti
cles for human -jjseris, not fully .appreciated. In
our own country (there has iiever been, a time
when a bushef of grain would purchase so much'
of the soil from which it grew, 'or could be ex
changed for as great a quantity of anything the
farmer has to buy. -
"Wages have .advanced, the, selling price of all
-hat is.-dealt in has been put up, until the arti
fttial quotations current fit 'the market have in
a considerable degree lost their meaning. Utter
lack of stability in prices, except those of food
, articles, has characterized dealings fqr many
months.' This can not last, however, and as
the selling .value of food takes on more fixed
and definite., form, so wijj the others come to
seek a level more nearly permanent than now
prevails," but in an entirely new proportion to
one another and to the stark necessities of lifeC
This is true because man must have food.
It is the one immutable guaranty to the farmer
that mi efforts -will be .rewarded. It may be
ont of the unexpected resuifts of thewar that
agriculture in all ts ramifications has been
brought to its proper-place aa.'the'top of ojir
industries, but the fact is noft'td "be e'scapett. '

i 'Mr. Cummings in Sad Plight.
We feel soiry for Mr 'Homer S. Cummings,
chairman of the democratic national con
mittee, and who has just ! been selected as
the keynoter for the San Francisco convention.
In a "world of Keauty, of spring sunshine and
full of the promise of summer's growth and
autumn ripening, he sees , no, , joy. ,' His way
ahead is throueh eloom.; and vthe 'future looks
black and tnurky to him.-. All because the repub

That ,.of course was bad, but Mr. Cummings
overlooks the fact that twenty-one of the demp-

profitably spend a few hours checking up, -oa
what actually has been done, always excepting
the doom pronounced on the democratic admin

Signs of Approaching Readjustment.
Shifts in the stock market are not always
indicative of the; trend of the deeper currents of
business, but Yornettring in the present sftua'tioti
suggests that brokers, bulls and bears alike,
descry the approach of the inevitable, readjust
ment. Spasmodic raids on ,the market are sup
plemented, at the moment by other signsof
greater import. The address. of Judge Gary to
the steel men is. quoted from in several partic
ulars. For the public it contained the comfort
ing information that the cost of steel is- beingl
held down that ifcmayavc some influence on
the general course of prices. Financial experts
point out an even more significant text inlhe.
remarks of the great industrial leader.
United Stated-Steel corporation's' vaults will
for the immediate future at least carry a greater
reserve' '.of-cash than ever. '.Profits are going
into1 reserve rather than dividends, in order
that, tVe-enormous' business of the giant con
cern may tVe" safely and economically financed.
This, had a reflex oii the price of its stock, as
speculators are looking for 'tire big dividend
-payers, rather tharMhose that offer, less returns
but greater safety.- The plan of the steel com-,
pany is being followed by' other important con
cerns, whose managers, are reported to be tak
ing care of day-to-day transactions from earn-
ings instead of by s"hort-time borrowing.-
Declaration by an important mercantile con-"
cern of a 40 per cent stock' dividend indicates
the magnitude as well as -the fecundity of its
business,' and ' i disposition tro fix in'permanent
employment a. considerable part of the enorm
ous surplus accumulated during the war period.

Another sign, that will bear watching is the
situation in Japan, where speculation as well a9
too rapid industriarexpansion has brought such
financial disruption as amounts toia veritable
panic. Counterbalance this by the recovery in
progress i England, and the belief that the end
of our "era' of post-war business expansion is
coming. This dpes not mean a panic, but that
industry and commerce are seeking a firmer

Success in Business Failure in Wedlock, i
A remarkable wife has been made, the sub
ject of 'a glowing eulogy by her husband in
an eastern paper. . After describing her talents
as a housekeeper and cook, and disclotig hep
earning ability in. the management of atsmajt,
business to which she devotes five hours a day,
as $5,000 a year.ihe rapturously declares he, a
"perfect wife" on 'a .straight 50r50. basis as a
helpmate." 1
This couple lives on $3,600 a year, attend
theater or opera twice a week,' and spend two
months every summer m the Adirondacics. Each
year $1,400 of her salary and all her husband's
earnings are velvet. So they are .".getting pn",.
financially.' .f ,' ' -
But where are the children? None arc men
tioned by the husband, and presumably there
are none. If not, away goes the claim of per
fectiotvso far as wifehood is concerned. . A
perfect business 5 partnership it may be, or a
perfect corupanionship for utilitarian purposes,
but no married life which does not include
children Approximates perfection from either
the civil or religious standard. , Marriage is
'sadly perverted by many in these days.' It
came intc being for the sake of children. With
out thtem it is a dead husk of social convention.
This pair.'so exultant over their business suc
cess, havefprgotten their duty to the state and
their race: 'If. Outmarriages were conducted on
their plan the world would be depopulated in
a hundred years - V V
' The family is the foundation of society, the
"strength of the state, the sole hope of the fu
ture of humanity. There is no real family with
out children, and no matrimonial success only
a more or less agreeable association of two
people of opposite sex for convenience.
. , A Popular Proposal
J Senator Sraoof proposes a thorough reor-
ganization of alL.the .executive departments of
; the" governftient, the elimination' of scores of
. duplications, the speeding' up of public business
' by doing away with interminable red tape, and
in short the putting of national executive af
1 -fairs ""on a business basis approximating that
, of the great industrial corporations of the coun-
try. "IJis resolutioa profiaes, in a phrase, Jor
the abandonment ofwasteful and ridiculous- cfr- '
. eumlocutions 'in conducting s the affairs of the
government and the substitution therefor of

Secfetay Daniels said after the meeting
.that the president did a good deal of laughing
,'and told several -'funny stories. The" president
entered the meeting on one hour's leave from
his physician, presumably to consider grave
public matters of pressing importance. It was,
the first time he had met some of the mem

'But a time limit by the physician, and his

f . Of This and That
Sir: Friend Teachor (eighth grade), Hart
ford, Conn., writes: "When I remarked to the
class upon the courtesy shown in Wilson's and '
Lansing's . notes to each other, Levy Beizer
quickly replied, 'yes, they said that, but 1 thin If.
they both were thinking something else.' We
have the word 'scallop' to use in our spelling
lesson, and Sam Nesitat was so cock-sure 'he
knew the word that he did not troflble t.use
his dictionary, so his sentence appeared. 'The In
dians use to scallop their captive.' That reminds
me in another grade the word was 'symptoms.
The pupil wrote 'Symptoms means signs;' sen
tence 'The symptoms poiated to New York.'
My August Kosetzke announces k on a history
paper, which lies before me, that 'a great debate
broke out in Congress.' Dean Brown of Yale
spoke the other night, 'and he quoted the an-'
swer given by a high school pupil to the ques
tion, ,'Tell what you know about the Magna
Carta.' The answer .read; 'Magna Carta was a
great general in the armyv He was killed in
the Battleyof Gettysburgiand : his wife, Molly
Carta, seized his gun, pointed it at the enemy
and cried, "Shoot if you must this old. gray

How to Keep Well
By Dr. W. A. EVANS
Three men boarded the trttln at 10
o'clock p. m. about 100 miles out of
Omaha. .Passenger? for that city
were compelled to sit up until 1 a. m.
The conversation of the three men
related to building dams, bridges,
railroads, court houses and other
largo buildings. They were probably
engineers and contractors. Presently
one picked up The Bee -and read
aloud a dispatch tellingnhat General
Gorgas (he pronounced it Gorgess)
had been employed to. make Peru
healthy. He was hired by the Rocke
feller Foundation under an arrange
ment with the government of Peru.
The job was good for five years and
toe pay was $15,000 a year.
can ne ao it 7" asked the fat one.
"Sure he can," replied the one with
glasses. "Give him the money and
the power." "But what's there to
this talk about having the intelligent
support of an intelligent rank and
flle?" "Nothing to it." said the man
with glasses. "Didn't he clean up
Cuba? Where was the intelligent co
operation of the rank and file?
Didn't he make Panama healthy ? He
didn't, get any Intelligent co-operation
from the West Indian negroes
who make up the labor population
there. No, sir. What you need is
the money and the power, that's all.
See how he kept the death rate of
the army down because he had the
Tjioney and the power. Fifteen thou
sand dollars 'a year! That's pay
for that job, said the reader.
"Oh, air those health fellows are
cheap guys," put in the man with
specs, "u notice tnat John D. pays
the bill. Think of what John D.
would have charged as his rakeoff
for making Peru healthy." ' -
"But that is different," said the
fat man. "John p. was .he great
est merchant in the world. He
changed the methods of marketing
a commodity universally used. He
was entitled to big brokerage."
J'Right you are," ' said he of the
specs., .'But didn't 'Uorgess' maKe
the building of the Panama canal
possible? What did anybody ever
do that imade more change than
What 'Gorgess did- in . Cuba and
what grew out of it everywhere in
Central and South America?"
"Well, those health people do
make people change. . They do get
big results. Why 'don't they ask
more for what they do?" ,
Here the conversation shifted
slightly. Said one: .. "I wonder why
somebody don't try that army health
stuff on a civilian population? They"
had no flies in the army camps. I
wish somebody would make Omaha
flyless this .summer, said the fat
man. "They tell me there are no
flies in Havana. Maybe there are
none in that country."- "Don't you
think it," said the man with specs.
"Go into any little place 40 miles
from Havana where nothing t6 pre
sent flies is done and more flies will
light on your bald head than you
will find on a dead horse in South
