FAIR PROFIT ONLY
Under the new licensing sys
tem of the Food Administration
speculation in food stuffs and
profiteering by wholesalers will
be made practically impossible.
Each wholesaler or jobber must
operate under a federal license,
and the number of this license
must be stamped on every or
der, contract and other paper
concerning the purchase or sale
or food stuffs. Coupled with
this is a federal inventory sys
tem, under which frequent re
ports of stock on hand must be
made, and any wholesaler or
jobber failing to fully comply
with the requirements is sub
ject to a fine of $5,000 or two
years imprisonment. j
Only a fair profit above the!
cost price will be allowed whole
salers, who are also forbidden
to sell to any retailer who takes
more than a fair margin of pro
fit. Through this system, any
consignment .of foodstuffs may
be readily traced to the source
of production. Wholesaler and
retailer will automatically
check each other, and profits
may be taken only twice be
tween the consumer and the
producer, these being allowed
to the wholesaler and the retail
er, who are each limited to a
fair margin, the same to be de
termined according to changing
conditions, by federal authori
ties. THE WAR IS HERE
The citizens of the United
States are beginning to realize
that this country is now at war.
Increasing war revenues have
begun to .be levied against many
things. Beginning the second
of the month of November post
al rates increased, and hereafter
during the war at least postage
of three cents will be required
to carry a letter that formerly
went for two cents. The levy
on tobacco has already been felt
and there is a special levy on
other commodities and trades.
But the people have rallied
to the support of the Govern
ment in a way to discourage the
enemy. The second liberty loan
was greatly oversubscribed, prac
tlcaliy every locality coming
forth with more than its quota
in this second "drive" for the
support of the liberty boys. This
should be an indication to the
Kalsqr that Americans are a
wake; that they believe in giv
ing 'suport to. the boys thy.are
sending to the'front.
m2$fan,' tyo, in tJie past week
many oikthe soldiers of Amer-j
ica who wero sent to Franco ;
have been pushed into active
service and are now along the
front with tho French troops,
These stationed at tho verlous
cantonments aro expecting ev
ery day to be moved forward on
their journey to the front.
The appeal of tho administra
tion to conserve the food supply
of the country by declaring a
meatless day has been general
ly observed, many of the larg
er eating places, absolutely elim
inating beef, pork and mutton
from their menu on those days
And there has been very little
complaint from the customers
The American spirit has been
aroused and the American cour
age is predominant and Amer
ica is now prepared and ready
to do things and the world at
large will soon know that Amer
ica is ready. Redondo Reilex.

THE "ER0ICA" SYMPHONY.
A Musical Portrait of Napoleon aa Bee
tboven Idaallztd Him.
The most notable example of a mas
terworl; with a political origin Is
Heethoven's "Erolca" symphony. Gen
eral '.eriiiidotte during Ills residence
In Icnua In 1708 us ambassador from
the French nation suggested to Met,
thoven the composition of a symphony
lu honor of Napoleon. At that time
Naixileon was looked upon as the
champion of freedom, the savior of
his country, the embodiment of re
publican Ideals, with which Hcethoveii
was lu thorough sympathy, ami he
willingly accepted the proposal.
Ilefore the symphony was published
Napoleon became emperor, and when
the news readied Vienna Heethoveu
was violently angered. "After all,
then, ho Is nothing but an ordinary
mortal! He will trample alt the rights
fof men iiudor foot to Indulge bis ambl.
lion and become a greater tyrant than
With these words he seized tho mu
sic, tore the title page lu half and
threw It on the ground. He never
again referred to the connection be
tween bis work and Napoleon until
news of the tatter's death reached him.
Then he said. "I have ulready com
posed the proper music for that cat as.
tropbe." meaning, of course, the fu
neral march. Hut the whole symphony,
with Its essentially revolutionary char
acter. Is n musical portrait of Napo
leon as Beethoven Idealized him.
Why 1831 Was Chosen.
In 1881 n so called prophecy of Moth
er Shlpton's was In every one's mouth:
The world then to an end shall come
In I'lchteen hundred and elghty-onu.
A traveling tailor denied Inspiration
to this prognostic, nor, as now appears,
was it remarkable for accuracy. But
he went further. He (lemons t rated lu
the dust of the road why that exact
dote was chosen. Not only was It ca
balistic, n multiple of nine, etc., but
It was the only date available to Moth
er Shlpton which In Arabic numerals
wus the sumo backward, forward mid
upside down. Eleven hundred and
eleven was past, und not till 18M would
the coincidence recur. The next Moth
er Shlpton will select 600S, which Is
not tomorrow or next day. London
An English scientist weighed a small
ant und a dead grasshopper which II
wus dragging to Its nest. The weight
of the grasshopper wus found to be
sixty times greater than that of the
ant. Tho force exerted by the nut In
dragging tho grasshopper along tho
road was therefore proportionately
ttpinl to that of a man weighing 150
pounds pulling a loud of four and one
half tons or a horse of 1.200 pounds u
load of Ihlrty-slx tons.
The Noblest Public Virtue.
That patriotism which, catching Its
Inspirations from the Immortal God'and
leaving at an Immeasurable distance
below nil lesser, groveling, personal In
terests und feelings, uiilmates and
prompts to deeds of self sacrifice, of
valor, of devotion and of death Itself
that Is public virtue; that Is the noblest,
the sublimest of all public virtues.
Ho Know Better.
