present autocracy instead of democracy; the rule of
the classes for their own aggrandizement instead of the
masses for the general betterment of the condition of all;
might rather than right; and world domination through
war conducted on the most barbarous principles rather
than the respecting of the rights of other nations and of
other peoples. Is it any wonder the flags of countries
holding such views as to the rights of others, should be
denied a place in decent company?

WHEN TO CHANGE THE CLOCKS.
There' seems to be a general opinion that in -the
changing of the clocks back to correct time, the date for
doing it is October first. This is a mistake. The act of
congress passed March 19, providing for the change is
printed at the' suggestion of the weather bureau for the
puipose of correcting this error. The act provides that
"cn the last Sunday of March of each year the standard
time shall be advanced one hour, the change being made
at 2 o'clock in the morning, and that on the last Sunday
of October of each year at 2 o'clock a. m. the standard
time by the retarding of one hour shall be returned to
the mean astronomical time." -This settles all differences
of opinion on the matter, of which there are many, and
fixes the time for the change the last Sunday of October
instead of the- first dav thereof. At the time the change
was made there, was considerable poking of fun at the i case,
measure, but it proved a really practical ana vaiuame one.
It gave an hour longer in the evening for garden and
such work, and not only this but giving the longer time
in a body made the hour that otherwise would have in
most cases been wasted, of real benefit. It helped many
a war garden, and while it is true the same result could
have been reached by getting up an nour earner man one
was accustomed to doing, that getting up would not nave
been done. By a bit of camouflage a hundred million Am
ericans were made to get up ai hour earlier than usual,
and this without grumbling. Who wouia nave imagi.i

TAKING THE GAMBLER'S CHANCE.
' Mason, the war expert, considers Hindenburg's stand
along his present line of defense is caused by the kaiser,
who he says, is a desperate gambler, and who despite
lik dpfpflt. 'in his submarine warfare and in this year's
bloody offensives, has returned to the tables for another
bout with the Goddess ot unance. ne interpret me
vhange in Hindenburg's plans of retreat, which Mason
says were intended not to be halted until far back of the
present lines, is that the kaiser is taking the gambler's
chance that Austria may be able to secure some kind of
a peace conference, he cares not what, before winter sets
in. Mason points out that the present line is doomed if
the war continues, and only the Central Powers have any
idea that it may not continue. However the kaiser is
gambling that the conference will be secured, for any
ether hypothesis will not justify the stand Hindenburg
The Spanish influenza, whatever it may be, has se

that the documents are not necessrry to prove the case,
being simply cumulative evidence. Anything in the way

That the German war lords are not pleased with con
ditions at home is shown by their offering, or pretended
offering of parliamentary reform, cabinet changes and
some sort of control by representatives of the people. It
is all for the purpose of quieting th3 masses, and the pro
mises of reform and of giving the people a share in the
affairs of government have always heretofore proved a
sufficient sop to quiet all clamor and uneasiness. While
this plan has been successful several times, and as on
no occasion have the changes or reforms promised mater
ialized, it is fair to presume that even the German people
will at last realize they are being deliberately deceived

, Vacation time has ended in Colorado's hills; the tour

other years they wandered, regardless of the cost, and
lavishly they squandered, and cared not what they lost:
You'd think, to see them throwing their banknotes to the
breeze, that stuff like that was growing upon the old
home trees. This year they skimped and hoarded, they
missed no saving points; and men of money boarded at
humble chili joints. I often heard them saying, the tourist
girl and gent, "We'll do the kind of playing that doesn't
cost a cent. I'd like to hire a buVro to ciimb yon beetling
crag, but that would plow a furrow in ray small roll of
swag. I'd like to drive you, honey, to Long's Peak's fa

tramp; the rental of an auto would buy us many a stamp."
