THE WAR. '
President Wilson's appeal to the

fall fruitage, if we are to jndge by
tbe editorial ntteranoes of Eantern
newspapers, Tbe Obioago Tribune

Hapsburg may add to its millions of
unwilling subjects, and that tbe boose
of fJohenzollern may be buttressed in
itatule of Oermany by a strong and
grateful uelgbbor to tbe eootn. Tbe
oonlliot brewed in Europe is a King's

Its Despotic Sway, For Instance, In the
Matter of Dress.
Tbe tyranny of majorities is not con

Men and women ore bound too much
by others' opinions. Society, of course,
is built on conventions. But conven

One should know when to follow their
dictates and wben to ignore them. In
tbe matter of dress, for instance, why
should any one endure a stylo be de
tests merely becnuse tbe majority at
the moment is wearing it? Why should
not a long necked man wear a tall
collar, if he prefers, it, even though It
does cause pain to the chins ot all
Frankly the question is without an
answer. Perhaps people tolerate ma
jority tyranny in such matters merely
because they are accustomed to it A
