CHURCHES TO BE RESTORED
A committee has been appointed to inagurate a cam
paign in this country for funds to aid in the restoration
of wrecked churches in France and Belgium. The project
is under churchly supervision, and the name of Henry
Van Dyke as associate chairman of the committee is a

It is hoped to raise over $:5,000,000. It should be a
cause appealing to Americans whether they are church
imp rs or not.
It will be years, of course, before the marvelous crea-
il 1 if 11
lions of stone which were me big catneurais can ue re
stored, and in spite of cunning workmanship it may be
impossible ever to replace some of the beauty which had
lasted for ages only to be obliterated by Prussian mili
The restoration funds will be devoted not only to
large building but to the little, homey churches in small
towns. It is safe to say that no way which American
friendship and kindness can be shown will be more ap
preciated, for the people concerned are Godly folk, and
thev need all the comfort which their religion can bring
them as they set about their work of reconstruction.
UNCLE SAM, ARCHITECT
verized and sold again as cheap pipe mixture,
It was quite a thriving industry in France until the
war came, and tobacco grew scarce, when there was a
shortage of butts that all but put the collectors out of
business. And then, presto! In poured the American
Army with its "fags," it sigars, its mak n's, and business
boomed as never before in the history of the trade.
And now, justas one figures that a few months more
would see francs enough accumulated to start the tiny
shop of one's own, pouf ! Lake that, away go the Amer
icans and most of the business with them.
Such is life. It is the war!

Former Senator John C. Spooner, of Wisconsin, died
in New York yesterday at the age of YG years. Once he
was regarded as the ablest constitutional lawyer in Con
gress and for sixteen years was a leader in the upper
house. Then Spooner found that he had lived up to the
limit of his salary, was growing old and was a poor man,
so he retired from the senate and attempted to build
up a law practice in New York City in order to gain a
competence for his family. Spooner s career was typical
of the honest, sincere man in politics in that he was fre
quently berated as a tool of the "plutocrats" because he
refused to be a demagogue, and yet remained poor because
he would accept no compensation beyond his salary from
any source, and in his old age was forced to work hard
to support himself and dependents. .

I do nut like J. Milton, and Shakespeare makes me
fud; and Byron's frenzied liltin' strikes Vne is pretty
lad. Most all the grand old masters who tread the
heights of song bore me like mustard plasters; with me
they get in wrong. They talk of kingly ermine, of gods
and fairy queens; and I prefer a sermon on hay or pork
and beans. The common things around me engage my
dome of thought; the chiggers that confound me, the
flies I hav toe swought. The housewife calm and stately
who makes a htppy home appeals to me more greatly
titan Venus in the foam. About that guy, Apollo, a hun
dred bards have spieled; but I would rather follow the
f.trmer to his field. I'd rather watch the missus on
kitchen labors bent, than read about Ulysses or any fa
bled gent. 1 do not care a hoot for the knights of olden
days; and I would never root for King Arthur's armored
jays. The knights who now are earning the bucks for
.4u!!ful toil, who keep the forges burning, and make the
l ittle boil to knights like these I'm partial, I sing their
lives with glee; but steel clad knights and martial can
make no hit with me. I would not scale, if able, the shin
l.ing peaks of song; I haunt the byre and stable, and
there I show up strong.
Not another city in the Pacific Northwest has Sa

fact, a large amount of building and improvement is al

the packing plant and 6tockyards and the paper mill. Sa
