There is a demand from all parts of the United States !
for Belgians. Here is another case of the supply and de-'
mand both being large but unable to get together. No ;
doubt there are hundreds of thousands of Belgians who;
would like to come over and be of us but who have not the ;
price, and we under the law, cannot send it to them.

A false patriotism, which always has prevailed, is the
real basis of the present great war, as it has been of most
What we call patriotism, and which we are accustom
ed to idealize as one cf the noblest qualities, began in the
patriarchal family, extended to the tribe, and broadened
to the nation; and this is as far as it has gone.
The patriotism which is bounded by national border
lines, while often calling forth almost godlike devotion,
is in reality one of the narrowest and cruellest forces in
the world. It is the cause not only of most wars, but of
constant jealousies and enmities; and it is one of the
greatest obstacles to broader human progress.
' Patriotism, as fostered by governments, is a monster
that must now and then -be fed with human blood lest he
perish from lack of sustenance, and must be kept drunk
on hates lest he come to his senses.
The youngest, the bravest, the best, dying by countless
thousands for what? They do not know. They have
only the shibboleth, "Patriotism."
Such patriotism is worse than a failure. Civilization
is having a hard time these days trying to appear consis
tent and logical and to read (Sod's mind. Each nation
reads His mind and interprets His will in a different way,
according to the different nations' selfish desires and
Who knows whether Cod is laughing at the maddened
millions of insane murderers, or weeping with the wives
and children at home? In any event, He knows that such
patriotism is a mockery and a delusion and a snare.
This great war will not have been in vain, if it results
in broadening patriotism beyond national border lines
and making it stand for high principle instead of the self
ish interests of communities. Many believe that this will
lie the last great war. If so, it will be by reason of a tre
mendous change in the character of patriotism.
The department of agriculture says skunks are the foe I
of catrpillars. This indicates that the lowly caterpillar j
has the sense of smell somewhat developed. At the same 1
time it is hardly worth one's while to put up with the :
skunks in order to get rid of the crawlers, as the latter are
anyway and every way preferable.
The paymaster general of the navy has suggested to
j letter writers that they should never write letters unless
: they have something to say. Very good advice, but if f ol-:
owed generally there would be a tremendous falling off ,
' in the sale of fancy stationery and a big deficit in the pes-1
;al department.
When the war started there was talk of trying to lo-'-
calize it. Now it has spread to Asia, Africa and the
j oceans, and the only place where it is not going on, or
liable to at any time, is the western continent. Even here ;
it is only three miles off shore, and according to some re-
lorts, not that far.
In Mexico there are so many revolutions going on at
once that it is difficult to distinguish them. If there is
any real government there and some one would point it
out and identify it, it would be a boon not only to Presi-'
dent Wilson but to innumerable American editors.
In eliminating the expenses of congressmen and diplo
mats visiting the Panama canal at the formal opening the
difference of six cents is made in the allowance for the!
latter. Nobody has yet explained the why of the differ
ence, but someone suggests it is to pay for grape juice.
All of us are striving for happiness; but
happiness, comfort, even good work and

Villa certainly keeps everybody guessing, as he de
velops some new trait of character, every day. Classed
a bandit he is also said to be a warm personal friend
of Major General Scott. Called illiterate, lie proposes to
educate all the orphans made by the Mexican war. Des
ignated as a scheming politician, he offers to eliminate
himself and stand aside for any president the Mexicans
may agree on. So far Villa seems to be the straightest
man prominent in Mexican affairs in some years. He has
been given a bad reputation by the Mexicans, but this, by !;(;;;;.,
