Low Mortality.
The fiftieth anniversary reunion of the old soldiers at Gettys-
‘burg of the North and the South was a great idea—great in con-
“ception and great in execution, it is one of the wonders of the cen-
tury, but the most marvelous thing in connection with that great
event is the low mortality of the old soldiers. The heat was almos§
intolerable for the best, change in manner of life, a tedious rail-
‘road journey, and with all that, less than one dozen deaths, nine
seems the number, who died at Gettysburg. This is a record that
. can hardly be paralleled in history and speaks well for the vigor
of the old soldiers and the care exercised in their behalf while on
their reunion.

The Balkan States Warring.
The Balkan states by uniting humbled Turkey, but since then
fighting desperately for the
they have turned against each other,
spoils of war.
The sympathy of the world was with them when they united
against Turkey. Now the world feels that they deserve a good
spanking. Before they were engaged in a righteous war, now they
are engaged in a selfish war, greedy with land hunger.
There are still wars and rumors of wars, but the peace propa-
ganda is at work and will ultimately win the greatest victory.
A Safe and Sane Fourth.
For a number of years prior to the Fourth of July the slogan
has gone out from the press to observe a safe and sane fourth.
The country is already reaping the benefit of that teaching in hav-
ing fewer fires, fewer accidents and fewer nerve-racking experi-
ences on the glorious fourth. The reports are that the fourth was
observed in a sane and safe way generally. Philadelphia says
there has been no improvement in this respect, but the New York
people say Philadelphia is slow. Perhaps in a few years Philadel-
phia also have a safe and sane fourth.
