BLOCKADES CUT BOTH WAYS
One of our exchanges calls attention to the exagger
ated ideas which prevail as to the value of a policy in
tended to seal the ports of a country against commercial
intercourse with other nations. More than once in its
earlier history the United States resorted to an embargo
against foreign trade. Japan by choice was long a hermit
nation and built up a remarkable civilization of its own
peculiar type. Japan continued its self-blockade until
other countries ended it by force- The blockade of the
Southern States in rebellion did not starve them, but
taught them many new lessons in economic production.
Under such circumstances the ingenuity of a people is
vigorously exercised, and practical substitutes are found
for what had been supposed to be necessities. In the days
of the civil war high prices compelled the people of the
North also to resort to some makeshifts in such standard
articles of food as coffee.
According to a late German trade review some re
markable benefits have resulted from the suspension of
German foreign commerce. It is stated that German
science has found ways to replace raw materials now
lacking, and that the progress made will be of great
future advantage. Nitrogen is extracted from the air by
a new process, and the fodder value of straw largely in
creased. The Institute for Yeast Industries in Berlin is
making food yeast with over 50 per cent albumen from a
simple treatment of sugar and ammonium sulphate.
A TRENCH IN WARFARE
The trench which has become the chief feature of the
present war and is commonly regarded as a strictly mod

really one of the oldest of inventions of war in ancient

The town of Waycross down in Georgia has a new'
ordinance which requires the registration of all washer-:
women and the inspection of the premises where washing
is done. In all this riot of demand here in the West for
inspection of one sort and another, for examination and
issue of diploma or permit, the real object being not so
much the protection of the public against incompetency;
and errors as to provide jobs for lame ducks, it appears!
that the Waycross plan has been overlooked. The profes
sion of the washerwoman so far goes untaxed for regis
tration and certificate or license, though in instances it is
taxed by lazy husbands who lie around and eat up the
profits. Their contention that the world owes them a liv
ing is no stronger, though, than that of the politicians
who sit around waiting to fill the new jobs created at the
expense of the taxpayers and real workingman.
