THE ART OF CHEERING.
It appears that France is learning to cheer. The un
rWr wave of annlause that swept through Paris
on President Wilson's arrival
Heretofore, it seems, the French people have had no
adequate means of expressing their emotions in public.
That may sound strange, in view of the common impres-
r.t f,0 T?,f.nf.rirrinn'R gift for ohvsical and vocal ex-
pression, but it is true, nevertheless. The French, like
most- Latins, are good talkers and eloquent public speak
ers, but somehow they never developed ah adequate vocal
system of letting loose their mass-emotions.
The coming of the Americans changed all that. At
baseball games and on all public occasions, they heard the
"rooting'7 and yelling of the vociferous Yankees, and it
made a hit with them. Little ay nine iney oegan w au
jnn fVmi nnrt-ppf. hut inarlemiate "vive" in favor of the
rotund American "hurray," and other signs of enthus
iasm that enable a full-grown man to emit, for prolonged
periods, all the noise he is capable or. jnow aimosi any
crowd of Frenchmen is said to be able to make a noise
like an American political convention. '
The British, too, have Caught the trick as the cheer
ing in London and Manchester during the president's
visit testified. No longer is the Englishman content with
a mild clapping of gloved hands and a mild ejaculation of
"Heah, Heahl" Those once self-contained Britishers are
learning to raise the roof and crack the welkin.
It is good for them, too all of them. It is good for
Europe in general. An old world that knows how to
cheer, and has the heart for cheering in the American
Rtvlfl. ia no longer old. All that rah-rahing and hurray
ing and hazzahing is a sign
and therefore, more democratic, irann, nonesi anu numau
A PRESIDENTIAL INDESCRETION.

The winter days are with us now, the winds are wild

Ignoring the temptation to make an obvious retort
regarding German "fairness," here we find another ex
emplification of the main thing that is wrong with Ger
many. It is the lack of the sporting spirit, failure to
give the other fellow the credit he deserves, envy of super

Governor Withycombe offers no solution for the fin
ancial difficulties of the state. He puts a deficiency of
$980,000 up to the legislature without a single suggestion
as to how it may be met. Further than this, the governor
pleads for the retention of the state police force which
has caused a large part of the deficiency, and would still
keep fifteen or twenty of these small fry political work
ers on the payroll at $90 a month and nothing to do. He
seems to be riding this state police hobby to death.
The Salem-Dallas road is very likely to be paved this
year, and this fact is commented upon by the Independ
ence Post, as follows: "A delegation of Dallas citizens
appeared before the state highway commission one day
this week and induced that august body to provide for the
paving of the Dallas-Salem road this year:' ' This is taken
by wiseheads to mean that Dallas is to give?up its chance
for a place on the West Side Highway and this, thorough
fare' will go from Rickreall via Monmouth to Independ
ence; that the commission to reconcile Dallas to its fate
gave it a paved road to Salem. ;.; '

ARTHUR MANDEL RENOUNCES

At t lie a ".mo timo Ruth was thiukin

When tho real estate agent asked:
"Not the wife of that lieutenant who

He had given her the refusal of the

that tho war would soon end. But he
also had said as had her aunt:
"They will keep a standing army ov

But someway Huth felt thtt Brian

in vain. . ,

would think for a moment of relating
to him all tho cases of sickness and

tails such as appear in the daily papersf
And yet, these papers go every day
into homes where there is sickness I. ml
with their grewsome accounts add to

of the country has
kept the minds of the pcoplo disturbed

the first duty of the city council should
have been the prohibiting 01 mo puu

Farmers Fire Relief
Association Holds Meeting
To the Editor of the Capital Journal:
An pisthnsiastic meeting of the Farm
ers' ilre Kolief association of Sublim
ity was held at that place on Saturday,
Jan. 4. There wca a largo attendance
o;n account of somo important measure
to bo voted on. .
The secretary's report showed that
there, were 48 new policies issuca mir
ing 191ff to the amount of $48,380.00,
rtj nrf January 7. 1919 there were 577
policies in force insuring 886 buildings
and eontents for $447,595.00.
The treasurer's report Bhowcd mo
losses paid during the year of 1918 in
tho sum of $1010.. ,
, Sunning expenses of the company for
tho year wero $185.65, leaving a cash
balance on hand of $948.48. '
Average fire losses for 23 years was
$1.95 per thousand per year.
The measure to increase tho limit of
fire risk from $1500 to $2000 was dis
cussed pro and con for some time and
when it came to a vote it carried unan
imously. The measuro to create an ad
equate reserve fund was also carried by
a large majority. When this measure
is in effect it will give tho Farmers'
Fire Kelicf association of Sublimity a
larger reserve than any other mutual
company in the stcto of Oregon. The
passing of this measure shows that the
members of tho company aro wide
awako and know a good thing when
they sco it.
The officers for the ensuing year are

(Capital Journal Special Service.)
Moiimouth, Or., r.Jn, 15. The influ
enza situation in Monmouth is worse
than it has been nt any other time. On
Monday morning thero were about 20
cases, though they wero all mild so far.
Most of the late victims are among
high school students. It is believed they
contracted tho disease from one of tho
teachers who was ill for a week aftor
the holidays, then came back to tho
school room before she was completely
recovered though the doctor affirmed
sho did not havo influenza. School was
dismissed on Wednesday when another
of the teachers cnnie down with it and
on Saturday the ban was again put on
nil public gatherings and Mayor Wol
verton renounced that there would be
no school at the 1 lgh or training soli ols
during the ween at least. Tho normal
school, however, opened again on Mon
day morning, the myor slating that he
had no authority to prevent on account
of it being rti tt institution.
