. New York man named .Murray
iVhen has married a New York Rirl
named Hella K. liernays. Anybody who
jumps to the conclusion that they are
now A!r. and Mis. Murray Cohen will
Ik mistaken. Their names are Mr. and
Mrs. Murray C Pcrnays.
Possibly this form isn't quite uccu-
r ite either. I'mlrr the circumstances
very likely we oueht to write it Mrs.
and Mr. Murray C. liernays although
the :egal pri-ers by which the nomen-
i lature of the pair was established give
the prectnlince to the bridegroom.
Anyhow tn.1 i"int is plain enough.
Htc is a h.iiifi example of the ulti-
mate In feminism. Old-fashioned Amer-
icans were shocked a few years ago.
wUf n certain modern young women in
New York insisted on keeping their
own names after marriage including
the dubious title 'Miss." Hut when the
woman not only keeps her own name
but makes the man adopt it too. wo-
man has surely triumphed.
Maybe this practice will become com-
mon in time. Maybe it will be the reg-
uhir thing in every city and hamlet in
America for a man to "marry into" a
woman's family and liubmerge his own
It'a a fearsome prospect for tho men.
And -yet. women can't be blamed. If
all the talk we have heard in late years
i-epurdlnK "absolute democracy" and
"equality of the sexes" is taken literally
why shouldn't it be as proper for a
man to take a woman's name as for
the woman to take the man's? Here-
tofore man had had it all his own way
in naming the family. What is more
nut ii ml than that as the pendulum
swings woman should demand this pre-
rogative? We hope however that the process
will not go no far as it has in ultra-
progressive Thiliet. where the "matri-
archal" system prevails in all Its glory.
There a woman not only does the pro-
posing and names and rules the family.
but usually has several contcmporo- i
II -oils husbands.

for one man to stand up and draw the
enemy's tire. A soldier volunteered and
fortunately not one of the bullets
struck him. When the charge was over
the captain said to the brave fellow:
"Where did you get the wonderful nerve

The other smiled.

MONKY COST OF WAR.
Kansas City Journni: l-'nr nearly
threo years and a half the greatest ua
In all history has bren going on. and
the mounting costs of military opera
tion: among the nations Involved are
such thnt human Imagination cannot
grasp them. There is something fan
tastic about the statistics of this war
because there are no Htandards of com
parlson adequate to express the finan
clal outlay. The human mind has not
been trained to think In terms of the
values upon which military calculations
are made. We know for instance that
the money already expended by the na
tloiiH Involved for purely war purposes
amounts to more than a hundred thou
Rand million dollars and that each
month it costs five thousand millions
more. When the war started it cost
about 140.000.000 a day. Now it is
costing $160000000 a day. llascd upon
administrative statements tho present
rate of expenditure by the United States
is higher than that of any other na
tion engaged. Kvery day the direct
military cost to us is j:9.40000t) and
in addition loans to our allies are at a
rate that makea the total daily war
cost for the United States more than
$40000000. Cireat Britain has a daily
war cost of $39.0liO.OOO. Germany is
spending nbout $30000000 a day - and
France about $ J 1.000 000.
The total dally expenses of all the
entente allies are about $11. 'i.OOO.OOO
as compared with $43000000 for the
central powers. The difference is large-
Iv represented in the different condi
tions confronting the two groups by
the need of spending vast sums for
naval operations by the higher pay in
the allied armies hy cost of manufac-
ture and transportation. The war is
costing an average of $3 a day for each
soldier enlisted fireat Iiritaln has the
heaviest individual burden for the war
Ik costing her a little more than 74
cents a day for each inhabitant. It
costs France 50 cents. Germany 40 cents
and the United States 28 cents. The
daily Income per capita in Great I.rit
ain is "0 cents France 51 cents Ger
manv 40 cents and the L'nited States
105 cents. Should the war last until
