A Personal Part. '
A certain young actress had ft small
prtrt iu a "war" drama a very smull
part, and she was not matisfied. So one
uioruing, after rehearsal, she set out to
interview the boss.
"I have only one line iu the first
net," she pouted, "and but ono in the
ccod. Couldu 't you give ine a line for
the third act alsot"
The actor-niauuger thought for a mo
ment. ' Well, yes," lie replied. ' ' When the
b'xnbhrdinvnt scene is on, and tho hero
is irnwhing in his dugout, you may en

"Oh thanks!" she exclaimed. "And
do I bring i-.n unexuloded shell on the

THE world unrest, which culminates in revolutionary
strikes, mob violence and riotous scenes, not only in
America, but all over the globe, is part of the reaction
caused by the world war, which aroused the passions and
criminal instincts and, interrupting the even tenor tof
eVents, left humanity seething with discontent.
For five years some thirty million of men were with
drawn from the useful production of life necessities in a
campaign of slaughter, destruction and depletionmak
ing a gap in the ranks of labor and in the supplies of the
world that years of patient production cannot fill.
The multitudes who sacrificed and stinted through
out the war cannot expect to secure everything they had
before the conflict and fail to comprehend the dearth in
supplies and that the only way to restore the normal is by
hard work, economy and maintaining a good morale. Ex
travagance, discontent, mutiny and sabotage only make
conditions worse. Knocking and crabbing accomplish
nothing. , , ,
As a matter of fact, there is little to justify discon
tent, especially in America. Wages are high and work
plentiful, crops are abundant, and ell products, whether
of farm or factory, find ready market at profitable
Cheerfulness, confidence and enthusiasm should re
place pessimism, despondency and discontent. Our ills
are imaginary rather than real. The probems we have
to grapple with are easily solved if w eapproach them with
hope, faith and good will. . ,
It is up to all of us to banish the grouch, keep cheer
ful and industrious in this hour'of world unrest and thus
help make life worth while. There would be less unrest
if so many were not seeking too much rest.
POLITICS ABOVE PEACE.
WAR TAX UPON FAIR
Prominent Indiana Farmer
Cured Of Rheumatism By
Taking No. 40 For the Blood
HERBERT HOOVER, the best authority on political,
economic and industrial conditions in Europe, knows
whereof he speaks, when he describes the dangers that
confront the world as follows:
"What the future has a right to demand from us in
further economic support is not yet clear; but it is at
least certain that if the world cannot quickly secure the
settlement of peace and safeguards for the future through
the League, the whole of our two great interventions in
Europe will have gone for nothing and the menace of re
action will again return against us upon the wings of
; haos." ;,,; '
Partisanship and politics however are of much great
er consequence in the opinion of the senate than the fate
of the worlds What difference if chaos returns to Europe
and the A. E. F.'s work be nullified, if the votes of the
hyphens can be secured in the 1920 election?
- The senate is the principal obstacle to peace and the
restoration of normal conditions. . If it rejects the treaty,
imperialism will return to Europe and the kaiser again
reign in Berlin. , , .
The Oregon sta.te fair helped pay the
expenses of the United States in the
late war to the extent of a'bout $3,UUO.
for it wa this amount that the vari
ous shows and restaurants were obliged
to pay, just the same as any ordinary
business or house of entertainment.
The Alamo shows were the largest
contributors, for from every ten cents
they took in at the various shows, one
cent was laid aside for the internal
revenue collector, ho was on the job
working for Uncle Sam .
The ferris wheel contributed its
share on the same basis and the dev
ils' den and the whip and the riding
ponies each laid aside ono cent out 0
every ten in receipts, to help in pay
ing the war debt,
Jewelry dealers with their phoney
wares contributed 5 per cent of their
total receipts, the uuul war tax. Soft
drink stands paid and even those folks,
from the country, who set up stand3 to

sions were surprised to learn that the
revenue department was reaching out
for part of their receipts to help in
paying off the war debt.
Several farmers who had heard noth
ing of licenses for internal . revenue,
were given some first instruction by
revenue officers to the effect that $10
was the customary license fee for
those who would run an auto for hire.
Ono thing escaped, and that was
tickets sold for admission to the
grounds. In framing the new revenue
laws, it was provided that all horticul

Products that Packers Sell
Their Number Grossly Exaggerated
The Federal Trade Commission has
published a list of some 640 articles said
to be sold by the packers.
This list is ridiculously padded in
order to scare people into the belief that
the packers are getting control of the
food supply of the nation.
For example, the list includes not only "beef
' sides" and "beef cuts," ,but also over 60 other items of
beef products and by-products.
Over 90 articles listed are not sold to the outside
trade but are raw materials and supplies, such as
brick, cement, etc., used by Swift & Company in
carrying on its business.
Glaring duplications appear, such as "sardines"
and "canned sardines"; "butterine" and "oleomar
garine"; "dried sausages" and "drysausage, " etc.
The list includes 37 kinds of sausage; 4 dif
ferent kinds or preparations of beef tongue, etc., eta
Simmered down, Swift & Company handles in
addition to meats and meat by-products, only butter,
eggs, cheese, poultry, canned goods, lard substitutes,
and to a very small extent, dried and salt. fish. And
the proportion which we handle of the total supply
of any one of these is absurdly small.
