ALL THE WORLD DEAD
The development of human powet
through the .inventions and discover-
ies in recent years has been bewild-
eringly rapid. The wholly new meth-
ods of the present war vividly illus- cities, and aftPr conference they for
(The Presbyterian Standard.)
Selfishness has been here ever
since Adam laid the! blame on Eve.
Tlie-war found it here. It did not have
to create it. Perhaps it has done noth-
ing to enlarge or strengthen it. But
il has furnished the opportunity for it
lo show its hideous features. In all
sections of the country and among all
classes, it is lifting the mask and cal-
ling atlention to its ugliness. Con
gress is wrestling with it, and trying
to keep it from bankrupting the na-
tion. The President and his agents"
are wrestling with it and trying to
keep it from freezing and starving the
We have been especially moved at
recent behavior of some of the farm-
ers. Out West they are foaming at
the omuth because the President fixed
the price of wheat at $2.20 per bushel.
This is twice as much as they ever
got for their wheat before. It allows
them $1.41 a bushel clear profit. Yet
they are loud in their complaints.
They insist that big business is mak-
ing billions of profit, while the poor
farmers are constrained to sell their
wheal at whatever price the govern-
ment sees fit lo set. They demand a
lice hand. They believe they can
force wheat to $3 per bushel, and
claim that this would not give them
more profit than they are entitled to.
In the South, many loyal subjects
of King Cotton are equally clamorous
that their profits shall be on a scale
of unexampled magnificence. Only a
little while ago, they were happy at
the pro . t of 25e a pound. But they
' ■ . r'-nvnssed the situation more

3. I teach my pupils that there is
one thing in the wofld worse than a
German enemy and that is an Ameri-
can traitor, an American eowanh an
American slacker, an American paci-
fist. I-teach them that treasonable ut-
terances, spoken or written, are as
dangerous to this Republic as armed
attack and must be punished by law
and by the force of outraged public
4. I teach my pupils that prema-
ture peaap would be a world disaster;
that we are fighting a war for liberty
against German tyranny, and that
having drawn the sword in a just
cause, we must never sheathe it until
Germany has been conquered, punish-
ed and made pay for her crimes.

my pupils that
must defend w’ith all their strength
our precious heritage of American lib-
erty, and must be ready and glad to

6. I teach my pupils that this war
has ceased to be, a fight and has be-
come a great world religion, a religion
of democracy, that we must be ready
to die for, if need be, so that our chil-
dren may live and be free. I inculcate
in my pupils faith that the American
people will dedicate their lives and
substance to these great ends, invok-
ing the spirit of our fathers and the
blessing of the God who never for-
sakes a righteous cause.

Chicago, 111.,, Jtm. 9.—Two thousand
workmen have begun a mammoth gov-

to consist of three one story buildings,
each a quarter of a mile in length and
96 feet wide. The men are after a

divided into sections by tile fire walls
at intervals of 175 feet. They are to
be lighted by overhead sky lights, and
heal, water and electric current will
be supplied by the power plant of the
central manufacturing district. This
plant is being built under the super-

Advertising is merely talking to one’s cus-
tomers through the medium of the newspaper.
National advertisers, in placing their ads
before the public, first consider the number
of people to be reached in a given territory
and place their advertising accordingly.
The Daily Herald is read by 3,(H)0 people
in Weatherford every day. Mr. Merchant,
can you talk to that many people for a dollar
a day? We don’t believe you can, but the
Herald will run an ad every day that will at-
tract the attention of the buyers for even less
money than that.
And when it comes to talking to your coun-
try customers, you could not circularize

goes for less than three times the cost of ’ad-
