THE Win PH0P04iA\DA.
The article published on the first page of this Issue, taken from a
speech lu congress by Congressman Clyde H. Tavenner of Illinois, con-
tains much food for serious thought In short, Mr. Tavenner favors the
taking oTer by the government of the manufacture of all munitions of
war, and thus removing the motive of the war propogandi that has I
been so assiduously pressed In the United States in recent years.
Remove the chance of profit from the manufacture of war materials,
and you silence the only real war agitators^. And at 0 MUM time the
expense of the national defense will be lessened by millions a year.
TilK PAKCEL POST.
Those who expected the parcel post "fad" to soon wear itself out
have been disappointed. The parcel post has already become a factor in
the every-day life of the people that will yearly grow in importance.
Elsewhere we publish the parcel post figures of the local postoffice. The
figures on outgoing parcels indicate the growth of the business locall},
while the figures on incoming parcels, of course, indicate the growth of
the business generally. In neither, case is it a remarkable increase, but
it shows a steady, healthful growth,—one that indicates that it is not of
the mushroom variety, but is the natural increase.
ISN'T IT ASKING A LITTLE TOO MICII!
The people of the United States rushed to the relief of Belgium with
perfect unanimity, and are pouring ship-load after ship-loud of provisions
into that unfortunate country. The case of Belgium was unique,—the
entire country was overrun with an enemy without any fault or provo-
cation on her part. Fate put her in the way of Germany's advance
against France, and the result was inevitable. Hence the strength of
the appeal for help for gel glum.
But now comes a long appeal from the "American Relief Clearing
House Committee, Paris, Franco," asking contributions for Northern
France, Serbia and Russian Poland. Of Northern France the circular
"The area overrun by the presont war in France almost equals that
devastated In Belgium. Vast numbers of her people have been driven
from their homes and .must be cared for by the already burdened
French nation Not only is southern and western France trying to
house these refugee women and children driven from their*homes in the
northeast but she is also finding homes for the Belgian refugees who
fled into France. France is the battlefield and the hospital of Western
It quotes the following concerning Serbia:
"Today one million Serbians, one-third of the population, are suffer-
ing every possible sorrow. They are destitute of everything. Since the
beginning of the war, when their lands were turned into batt^fields,
they have endured terrible privations, and their sufferings have been
still greater during the war because the first invasion took away a
great proportion of the, peasants, who remained behind to provide food
for the families of those who were fighting.
• Women* tlie mothers, wiws .m.l sister* aml th.• rhillp-i of a mil-
lion Serbians are suffering now because of the second invasion, which
must last much longer and more Serbians etill are being driven from
their homes. In six of the most fertile districts no less than fifty per
cent of the children are dying from lack of nourishment and medicine,
from cold and exposure, in the invaded villages everything has bee$
pillaged and destroyed, and when the unfortunate refugees who are com-
pelled to flee return to their homes they will In a majority of case
find nothing either in the shape of houses or food.
"I have seen the refugees. The children are pitiable sights, llttl
spectres of emaciation, not comprehending the misery in which they find
themselves, with wide staring eyes, hungry and ill, with no food but
dry bread, and milk an impossibility.
"Many mothers are too worn out with care and suffering and the
memories of pathetic little graves with wooden crosses to seek for
further aid for those who survive."
And of Russian Poland:

armies of Germany and Russia back and forth have devastated this un-
fortunate country beyond description. The non combatants, fonf< cblS*

Mention of Budd Doble, that auiet
little blue-eyed man who has held
the reins of some of the greatest
harness horses in the world, awakens
memories of the past in the minds
of those who do not belong to the
latter day aggregation of reinsmen.
Doble's name is inseparably linked
with the names of three champion
and crossed the plains to California
in the early fifties, leaving behind a
fiancee who he told he would return
and make her his bride when he had
"made Ins stake" in the lai^i of gold.

plighted her troth to him. Attend-
