THE COST OF WAR
(Dedicated to the European Wat t
It seems almost beyond the conccp
tion of tho human mind that the cost
of maintaining tho European war is
fifty million dollars a duy;
It seems hardly believable that such
a fabulous expense can be sustained;
und that to maintain this stagireriny
outlay to-maintain such an outlay,
The nations involved in the drama of
courage and bloodshed are living up
on their accumulated savings, and
spending them at a rate unprece
dented in the annals of history, or
e'er will be, never has it been in the
wide-world of history;
How they can anihilate one another
and call it Brotherhood and Christ
ianity, and How they starve millions
of souls by spending the coin that
rightfully belongs to those souls, and
call it Civilization is a mystery.
The war bills for tho powers for tho
European war is two million dollars
That would go good for starving soum
if it were spent for clothes, victuals'
and many sacks of flour.

No distinguished visitor to the great
Exposition aroused a more friendlj
ntcrcst than Edison, the inventor.
Crowds thronged about him and h
party everywhere they appeared and
with no other were the curious more
frankly desirous of coming in contact.
This wonder worker was about tho r.x
position grounds most of last week
and on Edison day at the great Festi
val Hall he was given an ovhtion not
before accorded anybody or anything.
The building was crowded to the limit
and ten thousand waited outside
catch a glimpse of the noted man. His
appearance on the inside was a signal
for more noise and friendly expres
sions than had ever been heard there
before. At night, the Exposition fire
works were more elaborate than at uny
other time, and Edison, in the center
of the activity, enjoyed it to the limit.
He caw himself in tremendous n.ovic
pictures there, and then in a large set
piece of fire works. Tho enonr.ou
scintillator projected vari colored
streams of light over everything at
tho exposition, and specially colored
lights played upon the palace
Fine Arts. It was a great demonstra
tion for Edison, wizzard of electricity,
a hero of peace rather than of battlc:
militar or political. One of the re
markable incidents in connection with
liia visit was his talking over the tele
phone for the first time. Edison
who was quite deaf for a long time, nl
ways had an aversion to tho telephone
and positively refused to uso one

There was dneo a principality called
Idlewild, the prince of which died,
leaving only one daughter. Narclssa.
She became the sovereign. Narclssa
from her earliest youth had been a
Tho principality of Idlewild was very
like those of Italy during that period
when great poets and artists nourished
nnd tho practical gave place to the sen
timental. Shortly after the coronntlon of the
now sovereign tho prime minister was
replaced by a poet whoso verses were
setting the Idlewlldeans crazy. This
change was followed by the replace
nient of the secretary of war by a lady
who had made a great reputation as it
reproducer of Greek festal dances.
Then was the portfolio of finance giv
en to a man whose performances on
the violin had often moved audiences
to tears. The minister of the interior
was replaced by a woman whose reel'
tatlous were considered marvelous.
Thus did Princess Narclssa replace a
practical cabinet by an artistic one.
Many of the peopi wore delighted
with the now managers of affairs ot
state, but a fow shook their heads and
prophesied Umt tho new departure
would not be successful.
Tho new cabinet bad hardly been
formed when King Wolfgang IV. of
Tesseblnnca sent a deputation to Idle
wild asking for the repnyment of a
long standing debt due him by the
principality. The prime minister re
ceived the diplomats, addressing Uiom
In hexameters, lauding their sovereign
and welcoming them to Idlewild, then
turned them over to the minister of
llnnnce, who poured forth such melo
dies on his violin that they were In
raptures, forgetting all about the debt l
they had been sent to collect
They were nhout to return to Mis
king of Tesseblanca when ono of their
number remembered that the king
would probably ask for the funds. Ho
ventured to reopen the subject nnd
was Informed that the matter proper
ly belonged to the Interior department
mid the head of that bureau would ad
dress them. Having been Introduced
to. her, she gave them one of Demos
thenes' orations In the original Greek,
transporting them with admiration.
The. embassy departed, too full of
emotion for utterance, and made their
way back to Tesseblanca. Beforw
reaching home tho spell under whlcb
they had boon brought had been dis
solved under the heat nnd dust of the
Journey, and they knew not what re
port Mtey should make to the king as
to the results of their mission. Aft el
a conference they decided to tell his
majesty that the government of Idle-
wild had refused to discuss the ques
tion of tho debt due Tesseblanca and
hud sent them nway with many com
pliments for his majesty, but tio
Now, the king was a rigidly prac
tical sovereign. Ho scoffed at the
compliments pnld him In hexameters
und forthwith declared war agnlnst
Idlewild, sending there n hundred
goutlcnioii on horseback with twenty
trumpeters to proclaim a state of hos
tility between Tesseblanca and Idle
wild. When Micso gouMcmcu renched ue
borders of Idlewild they sent word to I
Uie princess, Inviting her to come out
and listen to what was In store for her
on account of their sovereign's wrath.
The princess sent for the minister of
war, and the two were closeted to
gether for an' hour. A messenger was
then sent to the war proclalmers that
the princess would listen to the proc
lamation the next morning. There
upon the deputation, at Uie Invitation
of n country gentleman, wont In camp
on his lawn, that was level and green
as the surface of a billiard table.
They had scarcely breakfasted the
next morning when, hearing music,
they looked up and saw a company of
dancers headed by the war minister of
Idlewild dancing exquisitely. For
two hours, with Intermissions for rest
these ladles danced before tho pro
clalmers of war, thou Invited them to
listen to a fantasia on tho violin by
tho minister f finance. These exer
cises wero follow ed by others from dif
ferent members of tho cabinet, and Mie
program was continued thu next day.
Ono of the proclalmers, with a soul
o small that It could bo stuffed Into a
hazelnut, left the festivities and, gal
loping to his KoNcridgn, informed lilin
of what was ti.UIn place. Ills majes
