George Bernard Shaw says that all the nations of modern Europe
have at one time or other beaten Austria in war, but that Austria is al-
ways ready for another war when the war comes. The words convey
high praise. Admiral Coiignl said that he himself was the greatest sol-
dier of history, not because he had won battles, because he never won
any, but because he was able to fight again and again after a aerie® ofde
feats that would have broken the spirit* of any other military leader.—
Aa rumors of the probable appointments of Governor-elect Williams
to important positions In the new administration are circulated, there Is
the usual discussion of the fitness of the men for the offices. It may
safely be considered, however, that Judge Williams before making any
appointments will weigh his men carefully, and the men who have rec-
ords of efficiency,—men who have accomplished things,—will be selected
rather than those who have in some other way gained popularity and po-
litical standing. The Indications are that "pull," political or otherwise,
will have less to do with Judge Williams' appointments than those of any
other chieC executive of the state. *
DISEASE FKEVEM105 DAY.
Shawnee schools should observe "disease prevention" day, Nov. 30.
"An ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure" 1b a trite expression
long In use, but only in recent years has the "prevention" idea really
taken hold. "Prevent injury" was first adopted aB the slogan of the
great industrial Institutions, influenced perhaps largely by selfish mo-
tives of self-protection. As a great mine owner once remarked when
approached on the subject of establishing a rescue system in his mines
remarked "rescue be d * Prevent accidents!",—so the modern idea
Is prevention instead of cure for disease.
A number of the greatest plagues to which flesh 1b heir have been
proved to be preventable in large measure. It haB been demonstrated
that the American people, while profligate with wealth have been even
more profligate with human life. The campaign is now on, however, and
Oklahoma as usual is In the forefront with a "disease prevention" day
for the public schools, where the propoganda may be instilled in the re-
ceptive minds of the young. Shawneo should Join in the movement.
A 44WORLD WAR."
With the addition of Turkey and Portugal to the ranks of the bel-
ligerents, the area of hostilities has been extended to approximately 53
per cent of the land surface of the globe, and about 56 per cent of the
total population of the earth must be classed as technically belligerent.
In round numbers, out of a total land surface of 51,500,000 square
miles (estflullng tin- uninhabitable r--ti.•: - in tlio Ar< r ■ and Ant i:
SO,000.000 square miles is occupied by the 11 belligerent powers, and
about 1,000,000,000 of the 1,800,000,000 human beings on earth are direct-
ly involved in the great war.
Apportioning the area and population between the two opposing
groups, it will be found that there is a vast preponderance of both on
the side of Britain and her Allies, which own 27,500,000 square miles and
have about 840,000,000 people under their rule, against the 2.000,000
squaro miles and 160,000,000 people to the credit of Germany, Austra-
Hungary and Turkey.
If the affected areas are analyzed by continents, it will be found that
In Europe 3,040,OoO square miles out of a total ar.-a of S^SO.""11 and 38m,-
000,000 people out of 475,000,000—or nearly S') per cent in both eases—
are at war.
In Asia the belligerent area amounts to 9,300.000 Bquare miles (leav-
ing out of account the interior of Arabia—a political no man's land, of
about a million square miles), the total area of the coutln< nt being about
16,500,000 square miles. Hence over 56 per cent is at war. Of the popu-
lation of Asia 475,000,000 out of 980,000,000—Bay 40,/i per cent—must ba
classed as belligerent. J '
Africa Is, proportionately, even more effected than Europe. About
10,500.000 square miles out of 11,70"."00—nearly !♦*> per cent—and 125,-
000,000 of the 137,000,000 inhabitants—-over r,0 per cent—are at war. The
only neutral regions are the Italian and Spanish colonies, and the native
states of Abyssinia and Liberia.
Curiously enough, Australasia and Oceanic, although the most remote
from the primary zone of hostilities, haw the highest percentage of bel-
ligerency of any of the continental divisions of the earth, over 95 per
cent in area, and 04 per cent In population.
South America occupies the happiest position of all. Out of an area
of over 7,500,000 square inlles and a population of about 52,500,000 only
128,500 square miles of territory and 350,000 human beings are subject to
any of the combatants.
The percentage of area Ib less than 2 and of population less than 1.
Thus the continent whose very name was formerly regarded as de-
noting the most favorable soil on earth for the germination of wars has,
strangely enough, the distinction of being almost entirely at peaca, while
more than half of the world Is at war.

SAGE TEA AXD SULPHUR DARK-

Almost everyone knows that Sage
Tea and Sulphur, properly compound
ed, brings back the natural color and
lustre to the hair when faded, sterak

ing scalp and stops falling hair.
Years ago the only way to get this
mixture was to make It at home,
which is mussy and troubleeme
Nowdays, by asking at any drug
store for "Wyeth's Sage and Sulphur
Compound," you will get a large bot-

about 50 cents.
Don't stay gray! Try It! No one
can possibly tell that you darkened
your hair, as it does it bo naturally
and evenly. You dampen a sponge
or soft brush with It and draw this
through your hair, taking one small
strand at a time; by morning the
gray hair disappears, and after be-

' The church, the press and the school;
form a triple alliance of progress thsi

civilization would wither and die and

their uplifting influence^ and on behal:,
of the American plowmen I want U
thank those engaged in these high
callings for their able and efficient
service, and I shall offer to th£ press

The Farmers Are Great Church Build-
The American farmer is the greatest
church builder the world has ever
known. He is the custodian of the
nation's morality; upon his shoulders
rests the "ark of the covenant" and
he is more responsive to religious in-
fluences than any other class of cit-
The farmers of this nation have
built 120,000 churches at a cost of
$750,000,000, and the annual contribu-
tion of the nation toward all church
institutions approximates $200,000,000
per annum. The farmers of the Uni-
ted States build 22 churches per day.
There are 20,000^)00 rural church com-
municants on the farm, and 54 per
eent of the total membership of all
churches reside In the country.
The farm is the power-house of all
progress and the birthplace of all that
is noble. The Garden of Eden was
in the country and the man who would
get close to God must first get close
The Functions of a Rural Church.
If the rural churches today are go-
ing to render a service which this age
demands, there must be co-operation
between the religious, social and eco-
nomic life of the community.
The church to attain its fullest meas-
ure of success must enrich the lives
of the people in the community it
serves; it must build character; devel-
op thought and increase the efficiency
of human life. It must serve the so-
cial, business and intellectual, as well
as the spiritual and moral side of life.
If religion does not make a man more
capable, more useful and more just,
what good is it? We want a practical
religion, one we can live by and farm
by, as well as die by.
Fewer and Better Churches.
Blessed is that rural community
which has but one place of worship.
While competition is the life of trade.
It is death to the rural church and
moral starvation to the community.
Petty sectarianism is a scourge that
blights the life, and the church preju-
dice saps the vitality, of many com-
munities. An over-churched commun-
ity is a crime against religion, a seri-
ous handicap to society and a useless
tax upon agriculture.
While denominations are essential
and church pride commendable, the
high teaching of universal Christianity
must prevail if the rural church is to
fulfill its mission to agriculture.
We frequently have three or four
churches in a community which is not
able to adequately support one Small
congregations attend services once a
I month and all fail to perform the re-
ligious functions of the community.
The division of religious forces and
the breaking into fragments of moral
efforts is ofttimes little less than a
calamity and defeats the very purpose
they seek to promote.
The evils of too many churches can
be minimized by co-operation. The
social and economic life of a rural
community are respective units and
cannot be successfully divided by de-
nominational lines, and the churches
can only occupy this important field
by co-operation and co-ordination
The efficient country church will
definitely serve its community by lead-
ing in all worthy efforts at community
building. In uniting the people in all
co-operative endeavors for the gen-
eral welfare of the community and In
arousing a real love for country life
and loyalty to the country home and
these results can only be successfully
accomplished by the united effort of
the press, the school, the church and
