BABIES HELP PAY FOR WAR
Even Talcum Powder Has Been Levied
Upon to Meet Expenditures Due
The postbellum H. C. L. has hit the
In the Home Sector William G. Shep-
herd says: “About $3,000,000 will go
into Uncle Sam’s coffers from the pock-
ets and purses of soda water drink-
ers in 1920. Folks who like bowling
or billiards or pool will give about a
million and a half to Uncle Sam. Peo-
ple who play cards will give him two }
and a quarter millions. Automobiles
and motorcycles will bring him in 50
cents a head from the whole 106,000,
000 of us. We'll give him about $55,-
000,000 for going to theaters and mov-
“Every one of the 106,000,000 of us,
indeed, will give Uncle Sam an aver-
age of two cents a day, directly, for
pleasure and conveniences, with baby
paying tribute for*his talcum powder,
mother and sister paying tribute for
their perfumes, father paying tribute
for his cigarettes and athletic club
dues, all the kids paying tribute for
the movies and their trips to the cor-
ner soda fountain.
“The war did it all, too. We're pay-
ing just ten times more to Uncle Sam
in internal revenue this year than we
did in 1914. We paid so little then—
one-tenth of 71% cents a day—and we
paid it so indirectly that few of us
realized that there really was such a
person in the world as Uncle
Sam. At last the old party has
found us. Since then a lot of us have
fought and died for him. And if he’s
worth dying for he’s worth support
MAY DEVELOP GUM MARKET
Opening of Mesopotamia to Civiliza-
tion Likely to Add Largely to the
As law and order come into the wild
and unsettled mountains of Mesopo-
tamia, especially when new roads and
the eventual railway connect the
northern Kurdish country around Mo-
sul with the rest of the world, many
a now useless tree and shrub will
doubtless be put to service as a con-
tributor of gum. The gums of Meso-
potamia have many commercial uses,
and the unsystematic tapping and
trading that now brings the product
on pack animals to Suleimanaya,
where merchants buy it from the
Kurds and sell it again to other mer-
chants in Bagdad, is a mere sugges-
tion of the industry that may be de-
veloped by enterprising promoters who |
may have observed the extent of this
ratural resource in Mesopotamia and
looked further afield than Aleppo and
Bagdad for markets. Now that Brit-
ish oecupation has opened the land to
western ideas, it wonld not be. sur
prising if the gum industry.grew to be
a source of considerable national
wealth. and an important factor in
creating a new Mesopotamia.
Lengthening Life of Silk Stocking.
“No economies are small,” says a
French proverb, and the professional
stocking mender’s job is evidence of
thrift as understood by the Parisienne.
“Here,” said one of the craft, “are 30
pairs of silk stockings which have
been through my hands more times
than 1 can count, and look at them.”
They were patched anti darned till
there was little of the original left,
but as Elise remarked, “with boots
they still make an effect!” Before the
war madame paid three half-pence per
pair to her mender and provided the
thread; now she gives fourpence or
fivepence and expects miracles of en-
durance from the fragile web. Where
the mender formerly spent ten min-
utes she now must devote an hour to
some of these stockings, and it is dif-
ficult to see how she gets a living.
“But madame’s motto is, “Throw noth-
ing away,” and she lives up to it.
Bold Chinese Bandits.
Bands of kidnapers recently have
caused much alarm in Tenchowfu,
Shantung, China. Operating in groups
of from 30 to 50 they have carried
away and held for ransom wealthy Chi-
nese for whom they have obtained as
much as $50,000 in some cases. Ten
citizens were kidnaped in October.
Promises to pay ransoms have been ex-
acted by torture. Troops have tried
to capture the bandits, but have
failed. It is believed the kidnapers
came from Dalny, crossing the Gulf
of Pechili in boats in which they es
caped with their captives.

Our idea of the Coal Market is that
while it may not go higher it will
surely not be any lower for a long
time to come. Therefor it would be
wise for you to lay in your winter coal
supply now and forestall the danger
of a rise in price when the regular fall
demand sets in. Besides, you can get
it free from ice and snow and now we
will have time to screen it and deliver
to you in the best condition.
Considering the uncertainties of the
coal market the coal in your cellar is
worth more than the money that
would pay for it is in your bank.
If you want coal let us know your
needs and we will do our best for you.
