WHEN THE GREAT WAR OLOSES
' (Goodwin's Weekly)
Mr. Dolond G. Usher, professor of history in the Washington,
St. Louis University, has put out a learned Raper in which ho do
clares that with the settlement of the war in Europe, the United
States will be speedily Involved with the victor, be It Germany or
Great Brittain; that the victor will turn to the western hemisphere
for trade expansion if not political expansion, and thinks the
United States must decide at once whether it will undertake to
maintain or surrender the Monroe doctrine. Dr. Usher gives
many stropg reasons for his belief, but seems to assume that the
victor will come out of the war in a condition to be saucy and to
maintain any position it may assume. Our belief is that both Ger
many and Great Britain will be willing to take a rest when peace
shall be declared; that the conditions on this continent will add to
that desire for a rest. There are some millions of men of German
descent on this side; their sympathies are all now with the father
land, but were Germany victorious in the present war and were
she to undertake to seize territory to help make up her losses, she
would not retain that sympathy on this side for a holy minute.
And were the allies to be victors and then were Great Britain.
to become offensive, the first notice she would receive would be
from the Dominion, which In effect would be, if she precipitated
a war upon the United States, the Dominion would in a' day bo
declared an independent state.
And still there will be danger in case the allies are victors.
That danger will come from Asia and it will be the more serious
because it will have the secret backing of both Great Britain and
Japan is determined to dominate the Pacific Ocean trade and
wants large areas of China. If China is not already divided on
paper between Great Britain, Russia, France and Japan, then
there is nothing in symptoms. And if our country Is not quietly
preparing to meet a crises of that kind, then those in charge of the
government are as blind as moles.
In many places children aro not allowed to loiter In the stores,
toy. shops, etc., unaccompanied by parents or guardians. It Is not
prudent to nllow oven tiro most carefully trained child to remain
under temptation long nt a time; then too, if nllowod in those
places they are often In groups and their inlluenco ovor each
Other Is not restraining. Onej?ln a weak moment, may slip some
thing out of sight, and It ho gets away with It unnoticed, all aro
injured to a greater or less extent. If detected and the parent In
formed, he all too often gets'angry, denies the possibility of his
child having done anything of the kind, and quits trading whero
they will accuse his child of such things.. For this reason the mer-
chant many times lets things pass as if unnoticed hoping to avoid
trouble. The child, feeling sure of his parents protection, con
tinues till he Is caught then the parent has time to ponder on the
matter and sec the troublo that might have been saved had he
taken the merchant's efforts to save his child In a kindly manner.
et the child feel that it is the offense, and not the discovery of it,
that brings sorrow; that those who call attention to It would save
him or her from tho disgrace and misery that would follow as the
result of continued offenses. The errors of children, though re
gretted by tiieir parents and friends, aro not remembered against
the young people as the years roll around and efforts aro made to
Ive right. Every person in a community should use his Influence
to help othere and especially the young to lead useful and
moral lives. Florence West.

CO-OPERATiVE MARKETING OF FARM PRODUCTS
"Numerous agencies have done excellent work in placing
farming upon a scientific basis," said C. E. Bassett, office of Mar
kets,. S. Department of Agriculture, "especially that which has
been.accomplished by the State agricultural colleges and experi
ment station and the U. S. Department of Agriculture toward in
creasing the production of agricultural products and making
farm life better.
However, we have now reached a point where farming must
be placed upon a business as well as a scientific footing. The
problem confronting us today is not so much that of increasing
our production as that we shall be able to dispose of that which
we do produce at an equitable price. Both producer and con
