Lieut. Col. It. 1). (inrrolt Mays:
"In my experience overseas
observed that thu unlet imaHMUin
ing men were the best and
bravest lighter. Not many
noblo deed were credited to the
bully typo of men. but tin men
who had little tossy were always
ready to volunteer for tho most
dangerous work. We should
bo thankful (hut most of the
American soldiers were not of
tho bully typo, or olso tho end
ing of the war might have been
diilVrent. I saw many of these
quiet, uiiasmiming American
boys rush machine guns nosts,
curry wounded to safety under
extreme shell tiro, and do other
norU of noble deed that only
men with Imivo hourU would do.
They went into action with
mailt on thoir factw. Many of
thum died in the struggle, but
they vor gaiuo to the last."
If thu government oporatiou
waa to be made tho lever to
iruW government ownership of
railroads possible, it has result
cd in u farce. That is a mild
term for it, iu it is more than
likely to prove a tragedy, or at
boat 1 agio coinody. with the
pub. cut last. Co i) gross, jg asked
to provide 1200 millions to carry
on tho farce tho current year,
the deficit the lirst four months
being greater than the tlelicit
for tho past year, A tots! of
$1,700,000,000 bus been necos
sary from the taxpayers under
government control a sum be
yond tho grasp of tho ordinary
citizen, and he can only gasp
for wind, and faco tho taxes.
It is now expected that the rail
roads will be returned to private
management by thu lint of
October, and so there are no
extensions planned for this year
by the big systems. Railroad
development has practically boon
ut n standstill for two years,
and thu only big direct effect of
government operation has been
nrtiticial stimulation of payrolls.
The railroad properties faco

reduce operating expense
to their incomes, or to ask re
ceivership and raise rates nil

To the Tunc of a Perfect Day
To know the thrill of a Perfect Day, you must
have a Girl and a Chevrolet,
(The wonder car of this day and age) the leading
light on the Motor Stage.
With fishing rod and the latest book, you stop and
fish by the sparkling brook,
And then proceed to the countless falls, whose
Beauty lures as Nature calls,
And never once does she seem afraid (I mean the
Car and not the Maid),
As up the mountainside it steps, full of speed and
Power and Pep;
Never a stop, never repair; with a car like that
you haven't a care.
When you hear the Call of The Great Highway,
come in and purchase a Chevrolet.

I think that many people who entertain make the
mistake of not having their-extra furniture LIGHT. It is
so much easier to move around. And then willow chairs
areso"cumfy." Then they can be used all tho year around.
Mrs. Y was so mortified yesterday. While visit
ing her I snagged my pretty blue silk dress irrepairably on
an old chair. My dress was worth half a dozen new chairs.
It was hard for me to smile and impossible for her.
Amiably notwithstanding- -HELEN.
