GERMAN'S UlTIMATim TO POR-
TUGAL. As The Post had anticipated Germany has
no intention of tamely submitting to the re-
quisitioning by Portugal of those of her ships
that sought refuge In tbe ports of that
A Reuter dispatch from Madrid conveys
the information that Germany has sent an
ultimatum to Portugal demanding the
restoration within forty-eight hours of these
It will be remembered that Premier Costa
of Portugal upon the occasion of the first
neixure on February 23 appeared before the
assembly and stated that the requisitioning
of these ships had' been prompted by the
necessities of tbe situation and that Por-
tugal was fully prepared to stand the conse-
quences. This may hare been an idle boast
or it may ean that she Is prepared to go
to war with Germany.
Portugal is neither a strong military or
naval power. It has a popualtion of ap-
proximately 6000000 people with three-
fifths of the population engaged in agricul-
ture. The army law passed in 1911 by the
national assembly provided for active re-
perve and territorial forces organized on a
militia basis with every citizen liable' for
military service from his sixteenth to his
forty-fifth year. At twenty years of age
there was liability to compulsory service;
which in the infantry waa made four months
and for the mountain troops eight months.
The republic was divided into eight large
recruiting areas each of which supports an
active division and two reserve infantry
brigades as well as a necessary formation
for the territorial forces.
In case tbe two countries should go to
'war Portugal could probably raise an army
of BOO. 000 men to resist German Invasion
but except by sea under present conditions
it would be impossible for Germany to get
at her and as her coasts are entirely on
the Atlantic and German naval power is
conspicuous for its absence in those waters.
It is reasonable to suppose that Premier
Costa meant what he said when he asserted
that Portugal was ready to stand the conse-
quences of her set.
BETTER EGGS FOB THE COffSTT-MERS.
The department of agriculture has taken
an important step to improve the quality of
eggs which the American consumers have to
buy and eat. It has made a ruling barring from
interstate commerce eggs that are not 95
per cent good. Shippers packing more than
5 per cent bad eggs will be regarded as vio-
lating the food and drugs act by adultera-
tion. The department holds that through proper
candling shippers may eliminate all but 5
per cent of bad eggs. Under the depart-
ment ruling decomposed eggs to be used
for tanning or Buch purposes must be re-
moved from the shell before shipment to
render them incapable of being sold for
The development of the storage system
has been of great value to the producers
and handlers of eggs but there has been so
much manipulation of the market that eggs
are permitted to become stale and unfit for
food rather than sold promptly at prices un
satisfactory for the egg merchants.
As a result purchasers are at times com
pelted to buy a large percentage of eggs
unlit for food in order to obtain a few edible
eggs. Since there is a mechanical use for
bad eggs there Is no reason why the con
sumer should pay for them at all. The
proper candling before putting them on sale
to consumers would not be unjust and the
compulsory separation of the bad from the
. good might lead to more satisfactory price
levels from the consumer's point of view.
If there be a way to distinguish a bad
egg from a good egg there is no reason why
.a consumer sbould purchase a bad egg
HIGH COST OF GIVING.
; . The Post is inclined to wonder after all
If the Houston Foundation Is scientifically
V organized in the matter of its ad minis tra-
tlon. There 4s no doubt that the old plan had
faults and It lacked efficiency In some re-
- ipects and It was hoped when the Founda-
tlon itself was Instituted duplication of ef
-.fort would be avoided and greater efficiency
. .Besides It was believed that as a munlcl
' j;; pat department it would serve to relieve so
many charitable organization's of the neces-
slty of constantly begging for funds
There Is no questioning the motiyes of the
"people who wanted the city to take hold
jnt . a more concrete organisation for
-tht relief of distress and the dispensing of
' -charity and aid to the) unfortunate. Aad the
only purpose of this comment Is to hare

to look in th situation and see If the or
ganizaUon effected Is sufficient" or it a plan
may not be substituted without sacrificing
the salient principles of the Foundation by
which the ratio of expense to disbursements
may be materially diminished.
The municipal budget seta apart we be
lieve the sum of $2Q00 for the purposes
of the Foundation and the salary expense
totals 19300. That Is to say it costs $9300
for the city to disburse for relief 116700.
Stated otherwise' it costs the city 35.7 cents
to spend $4.3 cents.
The Post does not now assume to say that
this Is not the most economical plan that caa
be devised hut it seems to The Post that
S5.7 per cent of the total budget for salaries
is excessive unless y be deemed charitable
to expend a large portion of the budget for
MORE LOANS. IN PROSPECT.
It is reported in New York financial cir
cles that both Great Britain and France will
soon be in the American markets for addi-
The $500000000 loan of last autumn has
been exhausted with the exception of 15
per cent which is soon to be called for.
Now it is said France will want $:00000.000
and Great Britain probably another $500-
C 00 000.
These loans will be made if made at all
upon a basis different from tnat iioatea Dy
the Anglo-French commission. That loan
was made upon the joint notes of the British
and French governments. Future loans will
be secured by collateral which French and
British financiers propose in the form of
American railroad and industrial bonds and
stocks Japanese government obligations
South American securities and securities of
the French government.
For the present at least it is believed
the American bankers will insist upon stand-J
ard American securities. There Is still a
large aggregate of these in the hands of
British; German and French investors and
Mnce the United States is compelled by ex-
isting circumstances to share Its capital with
the rest of the world there is no reason
why it should not liquidate the debts we owo
Of course there are investors glad enough
to take over choice South American and
other foreign securities but Europe Is com
pelled to part with its securities to pay
war expenses and there Is no reason why
we should accept other than American se-
curities so long as American securities are
Both Great Britain and France have been
mobilizing their foreign securities with a
view to raising money for war expenses
and as the only lendable money in the
orld outside of the belligerent countries
Is here we have the right to choose such
collateral as we desire.
There will be political opposition to these
loans as there was opposition to the Anglo-
French loans but they are necessary to the
orderly operation of our foreign commerce.
Our cotton grain foodstuffs and munitions
must be sold and paid for and cash pay-
ment is feasible only through tha flotation
of credit loans. All the proceeds of these
loans remain in this country and besides we
are thus guarding against the over-importation
of gold and at the same time liquidating
our European debts.
VThile there are obstacles at present
against our absorption of Germany's Ameri-
can holdings when the war ends Germany's

FOLLY OF INCREASING THE COTTOY
Reports of Federal reserve agents made
public Wednesday night by the Federal re-
serve board reflect generally good business
conditions throughout the country though a
growing scarcity of raw materials used in
many American industries is noted.
A feature of the statement that is dis-
appointing Is that Southern agents predict
an increase in tbe cotton acreage this year
unless steps are taken to prevent it. There
are other indications coming within the ob-
servation of State authorities whose duty
it is to Veep a line on the situation as well
as others interested in the welfare of the
cotton farmers of the South that the con-
clusions of these reserve agents as to the
prospective acreage Increase are soundly
In this connection The Post quotes tbe
following from the-Greenville Evening Ban-
ner: It is out of the ordinary to vr farmer or-
ganizations urging that cotton k l hut that
i tbe ta.se today. What is the cause of (his ?
Nothing but the prospects of a heavy crop.
If the farmers plant as much cotton as llie
indications now seem to assure colton will be
at a rainou price next fall h i ilarming to
those who have at heart the well being of the
South to see the trend of the situation this
time. The cotton raisers have lot sight that
is many of them the certain results of a large
crop. There is every prospect that the acredge
will be large very large apd the man who is
yet- holding appears to be facing a price far
below what can he had now. What shall we
do about it ? It is a problem .for the agricul-
tural people and business men to solve. There
is one way to do it and that is the right way.
It surely would be a misfortune to the
farmers of the South for them to raise a big
crop thlB year by reason of Increasing the
acreage above that of the past year. The
temptation to increase the acreage find's Its
inspiration of course In the present favor
able prices for the staple in spite of the
depressive influences caused by the restric-
tion of demand and delivery on account of
the war in Europe and the evident assump-
tion on the part of growers that the demand
will be enlarged and present restrictions re;
moved as the results of future deveolpments
n the war.
There Is absolutely no assurance that we
will Sot have a less insistent demand and a
mors restricted market when the next crop

over the season ' may prove so propitious
that there' will be a big crop produced on an
acreage no greater than last year and of
course at much leu expense tha? .would be
incurred in the production and gathering of
a crop on a larger acreage - ''!--"':!'.
The low prices for the' crop of ill! forced
the farmers to tee the wisdom of crop diver
sification which was in a measure responsi-
ble for the reduction of the 1918 acreage and
ot the favorable prices for the crop of' that
year which In the total of mossy paid for
it was In excess of that paid for the record-
breaking crop of 1914.
The Post believes that the farmers of the
South would make a grave mistake to aban-
don the plans that have been talked tor a
still larger diversification and return to the
folly of any increase in the cotton acreage
over lhat of the past year. They have' sound
the way to prosperity in spite of the world-
wide war now hampering trade and they
should continue in that way. "
EDUCATION AND CITIZENSHIP.
The Galveston plan to institute classes in
the public schools designed to teach immi-
grants to be better citiiens Is not new. Many
cities have adopted the system. -The plan
by which the objective Is reached or sought
to be reached is through classes In English
and the teaching of the principles of the
As a rule immigrants take kindly to this
special Instruction because those who
neither speak nor understand English are
conscious of a decided disadvantage in the
struggle for a livelihood. Likewise there
Is usually an eagerness on their part to
acquire knowledge of the American system
of government and the principles .underly-
Sometimes when we behold the Inadequate
comprehension on the part of our' natives
of the principles underlying our form of
government we wonder if it would not be a
good plan tn specialise Instruction for Ameri-
can chlld. to a greater extent than we do.
We have evidence every day and every-
where In this country of men and women
who do not comprehend such principles and
unfortunately the number Is large. The
fads that are frequently advanced by men
supposed to be educated In the principles of
our system the persistent drifting away
from the ancient landmarks of our political
leaders the waning of Individual rights and
tbe respect therefor and the eager accept-
ance of any expedient thing In dealing with
problems all go to show that native Ameri-
cans are coming to respect the principles of
our government less else they have no com-
prehension of them. '

taught-in the schools perhaps our leader
ship would not be so quick to surrender for
political expediency's sake such principles
as tbe founders regarded as absolutely vital
to the perpetuity of the Republic.

snd that is one's own state of mind. .
The(best judge of all is love. II you detest a
person if you feel an msttncUve antipathy do
not undertake to form any opinion of him what
ever for any notion you may conceive of him is
pretty sure to be wrong. Your love tnay not
necessarily be- ardent but at least you must wish
him well and be'kindlj disposed before you can
gauge him at all. Set that down- acknowledge
fairly that it is impossible to be just and to hate.
Secondly you must be honest If you are

MOST every daily
paper sprints a cot .
"o two ef beauty hints ;
and stUl we" meet' the
human quince upon the v
street - The feuqw with y !
the misfit face we meet
him hearty every place.; v
Why dont he read ;
hints and chase oa aanvf-'
ions feet to buy the
tooted beauty dope the
powder shampoo or the- .
soap and then go home- p'
ward at S lope and rub .
it in:- and that way make hi face more fair
tone down his nose shampoo his hair-and save
from grieving and despair hi kith and km? Why
don't he with some putty and sandpaper and some
paint in hand go and before the mirror stand .
and putty all the wrinkle he ha in his map
some acid on his freckles slap and throw1 bis
warts into the scrap and. a they fall aandpaper
chin and ears and nose' and cheeks and neck
and when all those and each of -them improve- i
ment shows slap on the paint and give his cheeks
a glory tint like in the daily fashion hint which
nearly all the papers print and look less quaint?
It's such an easy thing to do to spend each week
a day or two. remodeling a snoot that you should
never halt while beauty hints are in your reach
the way to pulchritude to teach. If you are not
blooming peach h's your own fault
The buildin's is- so tall
That they seem to reach tbe skies
And I can not hear the call
Of the fieldlarks and my eyes
Sort of aches for madders wide
Winter-touched and sear and brown
The big medders 'way outside
And 'way out of sight of town.
And the hills and the trees.
They keep sendin' word to me
Send me word by every breeie
Of the ways that used to be ;
Roads I used to love to go
Windin' up tht hills and down ;
Of the creek I used to know
Fur away from every town.
But the old home ain't no more-
Father's passed away and gone! (
Never standin in the door
Never lookin' at the dawn
Lightin' up the eastern sky
Lovin' sky and road and hill
And at day-ead by-and-by
Listenin' to the whippoorwill.
So there ain't no place to go
Empty is the house and still I
And there are no cows to low
Wendin' homeward "round the hill;
And there ain't no home for me
And no lev when night cornea down
Round the home that used to be
I am 'prisoned in the. town.

The limit kiss

How long they are
I ne'er have found
But I just love to
Have them 'round.
