NO MEN TO MARRY.

The young women of England, at an age when they
would be most likely to be marrying outnumber the men

truly a terrible situation as regards human happiness and
the continuance of the race in England and r ranee.
A national suggestion has been that these girls im
migrate in great numbers to the United States and Can
ada where the war has not taken such a heavy toll of the
men. This suggestion has met with some opposition on
both sides of the water, the girls of America apparently
dreading lest their chances for happy matrimony be less
with an influx of willing brides frob abroad.
But, after all, why not welcome these girls? Mar
riage is largely a matter of selection; and if American
Henry wants American Elizabeth, not all the Marys in
Britain or Maries in France can stop him.
Perhaps sharing the marriageable men of America
with the bereft women of Europe is only part of the burden-bearing
which has fallen to America's lot.

cited that Mr. Wison's message was the most adroit pol-
meat mannesto ne nas yet issued, and that he stole much
of the opposition's thunder, going so far as even to recom
mend a revision of the tariff, even if that revision tended
to increase duties. Almost anything that congress might
do, or is likely to do, now could be pointed out as following
the suggestions made by the chief executive. The game
of diplomacy in which the president has been engaged so
strenuously for several months may have had the effect
of transforming him into a more adroit politician than
The great Red Cross centers in America are closing,
one by one, though the activities of the society will be ex
tended in peace no less actively than in war. The knitting
needles are being packed away in the attic along with the
winter underwear, and American women are turning to
other employments for the fingers once so busy with
needles and yarn.
But in the meantime the inhabitants of the devastated
villages of Belgium and France are taking up their knit
ting needles, as one by one they iind a doorway to sit
beside or a bit of roof to shelter them.
In order that every refugee woman who desires to
knit may have supplies, the Red Cross societies abroad
will distribute over $2,000,000 worth of knitting mater
ials including 1)00,000 pounds of yarns. It is pleasant
iiugury of better times to come, when the peasant women
of Europe once more turn to their knitting.
The Prussians are finding those Fourteen Poh's

An Irishman who calls himself "Envoy of the Provis

lic will welcome the aid of "the freeman of th; Russian
Socialist Federal Soviet Republic." Untangling all these
words, we seem to find a bid for an alliance between
Sinn Fein and the Bolsheviki. Do the Sinn Feiners im

An Armenian friend, a good citizen and a good Ameri

wrong, since the eastern question is one that has puzzled
the sages and statesmen of all ages. The more we West
erners dabble in the muddle the more trouble we accumulate.
