My ears are often sore and aching,
my heart is on the edge of breaking, I
lioar so much of woe; the men I know
are all complaining, their briny tears
forever raining, wherever I may go.
In gome poor chaps grief la abiding
because the cars in which they're rid
ing are made of tin and rust; it makes
Ihem sore when costly wagons whiz up
the road like fiery dragons, and cover
them with dust. Of course to swallow
dust is hutcful; but It were better to
be grateful that they have cars at nil,
thut they have boats In which to travel
at any speed, upon the gravel, and by
the junkyard wall, The man on foot
Is feeling bitter because his neighbor,
pompous critter, rides In a boat of tin;
upon his triblys he goes toiling, and In
his veins the blood is boiling, he scorns
the eher-un grin. Green envy, reader,
is the answer; ifagnawing-like a dead-J
ly cancer, in Hurry, Tom and Dick; it
takes the bloom from human pleasures
it turns to dross the old world's treas
ures,; and makes the .spirit sick.
r ENERAL LUDENDORFF in his commentaries on the
v war admits that the one problem German efficiency
could not solve was the war profiteer. All the other big
problems, armies, transport, munitions, commissary,
strategy and countless others were satisf actnrilv master
ed, but the profiteer, like the cootie, continued in business
despite the effort to eradicate him. Says Ludendorff :
Profiteering wag the deadliest sin, and our inability to eradicate it was
a matter of the greatest regret to me from the point of view of morale
at home and in the field. Many times I made an effort to get to the bot
tom of it. The war profiteer is a loathsome phenomenon, and he and the
corruption of his influence have do ne us Incalculable harm.
r Not only did the profiteer flourish during the war
in Germany, but in other countries, including our own
United States. Every war millionaire is a profiteer who
coined the agony of humanity into dollars, who placed
self ish greed above patriotic service.
The profiteering, unfortunately, did not end with
the war, but with the removal of federal restrictions, be
came universal in a world suffering the evils of recon
struction.' Peace profiteerinsr is not under the same
stigma as war profiteering, but its effect is likely to be
as disastrous. We see it on every hand, in the high cost
vi living, in me nign cost oi labor, in the diminished pro
duction, in the industrial unrest.
And we are as far from solving the profiteering prob
lem as was ijuaenaom wnen master of imperial Germany,
Strict law enforcement and a public realization of the con
sequences and the patriotic co-operation of all the people

I Editor The Daily Capital Journal:
I have just read your editorial headed
"Newspaper and Merchant" and ac
cording to my opinion, you just hit
the nail on the head when vou say,
"Its columns of store news should be
as interesting reading to the buyer as
its news columns and its classified
pages secure work for the idle. The
newspaper is really the mirror which
reflects the community."
I feel sure that you will have the
support to make the Capital Journal"
(if it Is not already so) one of the
leading newspapers of the state.
Very truly yours,

thing in meir power to prevent an appeal to the people and
used their secret political machine to coerce legislators
Most of the people believe in home rule on this ques
tion, and while voting their own states dry, are unwilling
to dictate to other states. Ohio which voted for state
prohibition in 1918, in 1919 refused to ratify the national
dry amendment. . .
; . ; The election showed the resentment of voters of Ken
tucky, Maryland and New Jersey, and presages a hard
tune for federal officers in enforcing dry laws without co
operation of state officials in districts opposed to pro
hibition. The result cannot be otherwise than to create a
contempt for the law in the minds of many peopleas any
effort at sumptuary legislation against public sentiment
does. Even in dry states, prohibition was voted to elim

but all the laws in creation will not prevent people from

who understood, while I was making

subjected to very critical analysis, i
remember John said, when he got

we lived la the house with Madame

annoyance and humiliations for me. I
I learned most thoroughly that it Is true
; that no house Is big enough for two
I Although Madame (Iordun knew
I had graciously insisted upon
her retaining her place us head of the'
household, never while she lived with
us did she consult my comfort or in
clinations in any way. I was made to
feel that I was an interloper always.
I never knew just what John had
said to her but he is absolutely hon
est, even though brutally frank, and
I am sure that he told her that he
wanted me to run the house and that
I, through consideration of her feel
ings, did not wish to do so.
One of the "reasons I had for think
ing this Is that late In the morning,
when John and I had finished our
breakfast, Madame (lordon sent for me
to come to her room.

Road Building on 9 Desert.
There is now nearing completion a
17-mile tangent of Lincoln Highway
which outs across the Salt Lake Desert,
shortening the highway by some fifty
miles. The desert surface is broken
up by means of gang plows and shaped
by means of road graders hauled by
caterpillar tractors. Owing to the
nature of the soil difficulty was ex
perienced in moist weather, due to the
weight of the tractors which sank into
the mud despite their broad bearing
surfaces. The difficulty was solved by
bolting timbers to the caterpillar belts
so as to broaden the tread of the ma
chines. As the road bed is completed
the gravel is hauled and dumped over
it by means of motor trucks mounted
on broad steel-tired wheels which
serve to pack the road material.
