A Liberty Bond was presented to many Tune
brides as a wedding gift which leads an Eastern
paper to remark that the act is of unusual merit
inasmuch as it finances two wars at the same time.

It is true that we are facing more than a night
mare. We may be up against it proper, especially
if Russia lays down. But whether we are or not
whether Russia sticks or gets cold feet, we can
not help matters by getting excited and running
around in circles.
The movement to recruit farm labor from the
ranks of the idlers or other branches of the Sons
of Rest is ridiculous. A small injection of this
class of men into the farm labor supply might be
profitably assimilated, but to depend upon ' them
to any great extent would be foil'. Brains and
experience must be mixed with brawn and energy
to accomplish anything on a farm.
President Wilson's draft proclamation contains
this sentence: It is in no sense a conscription of
the unwilling." This statement is so broad in
character as to leave many to believe that those
who have conscientious objections to being forced
into the army will be excused, altho the an-
nounced plans of those having the draft in charge
do not in any way confirm it.
A certain gentleman, living in Washington by
the name of Woodrow Wilson, can add further
laurels and fame by insisting upon government
control of prices as soon as possible. With Mr.
Wilson s power for making drives" so effective,
it is time for rejoicing and the giving of thanks
that he has so forcibly notified Congress of his
desires in the matter. More grease to his elbow.
According to government officials, the country
will have a tremendous crop this year which will
be needed if we must feed several nations of
Europe. Even if the war should stop tomorrow,
a portion of Europe would starve next winter if it
wasn t for America. Peculiar, too, but prices in
England are cheaper than they are in America
today, rood speculators are not allowed to trraft

In recent months so many have wished to ioin
the Quaker church that this sect has had to bar
its doors and refuse to admit to membership any
more "converts" until after the war is over. It is
suspected that these late "conversions" are not
genuine, but are made for the purpose of escap
ing the draft, Quakers being exempt from active
military service. The Quakers have only taken
the firm stand that should have been taken by all
other churches years ago. If all other sects had
been as zealous tor peace as the Quakers, all war
would be eliminated.
