Telephone, all departments. Main IS. The Only Way Out Two perfectly practical things the government can do to put an end to the present food situation. The American railroad system having broken down and gone to pot, the government can exercise its emergency powers, take possession of What is left of the system and operate it for the Common Jood instead of the profits of cormorant fortune grabbers.
It can, for the time being, commandeer food supplies and sell them to the public at coat. But this time if tho same as war tinio —a war hotwoon groody profit grabber! It is useless to expect the least relief from private sources.
Railroad companies exist to make dividends for stockholders, not to transport food for the public. Retailers aro at the mercy of wholesalers, wholesalers at the mercy of manufacturers and shippers, manufacturers and shippers at the mercy of huge combinations, trusts and corporations impersonal, impenetrable, organised tosqueese the utmost of profits out of each situation but Utterly incapable of meeting any such situation as this.
It is no time for theories, no time for more investigations and no tinio for the trilobites of legislation that kuow nothing about Lonely 28 Tacoma Washington side 28 world this side of the Lower Silurian. With a superabundance of food, frith wealth inconceivable, with money piled up here until all mankind is aghast, millions of people are forced to go [With empty bellies.
We ought to know what that moans, and if wo don't we can find out easily enough if we will read a little history. Also wo can find out in another way and at a vastly higher price if we Stand dawdling about telling people to keep quiet and put up with starvation in the sight of abundant food. Now is the time to get busy! Take the railro and start the cars running. Commandeer food supplies, and bust the corners, lost a worse thing come upon us! Darn women, anyhow!
We always swore we'd never have one In the office, when Wo got to running a newspaper.

In ininutes the trees had become newspapers. Think of sending our navy out witli shells which will not stand the test and which the enemy knows will not stand the test: vj s like furnishing our army with Mour instead of powder for its guns.

Of inch shells for our vaunted great dreadnaught guns submitted by the Hethelehem Steel Co. Of the C-uclble Sleel Co. Of the shells submitted by the Hadfields of England all passed. When the Hadfields underbid the American shell makers by something like 20 per cent and Daniels favored going abroad for our shells, the American makers set up a great howl.
It would "hurt business. Daniels was an idiot. All the old-fashioned whining and threatening usual when a graft cinch upon easy old Cncle Sam was threatened came forth. But Daniels stands by his guns. We repeat that for the sort of rascality tltat Daniels has exposed there ought to be some hotter puulshment than mere lost of business.

It said: 'My dear Miss Lonely 28 Tacoma Washington side 28 old friend, Jeff Perrygreen, who is also a friend and classmate of mine, is in town and both he and I want you to dine with ub this evening. I want to tell you how wonderfully the bed of old-fashioned pinks In your mother's garden is blooming under my mother's care.
I could distinctly smell the spicy odor of the homely posies. I will, darling,' and quickly I put as many of tho pinks into her hands as they would hold. She looked like an angel over the rosy blossoms and confidently she pursed up her mouth for a kiss. Earnest Lawton and this Is Earnestine. Lawton inquired.
Lawton, but she seemed to dismiss her annoying thoughts immediately. Ruth's sister and Earnest's wife seemed absurdly young to have even a threeyear-old. I could not help thinking that probably her love story with Earnest Lawton was much like my own. Also, I know now why I got my chance at tho part of Elga. Lawton, but when the play was ready for rehearsal the break had come between them and chance had flung me In the breach. Come along, baby child,' said Earnestlne's mother.

I am unmarried.
The father of my baby promised to do everything for mer but since tho death of the child has done nothing, and when I call htm up, he hangs up the receiver. If 1 write, I get no answer. He is married and his wife knows about me, but seems to glory in my unhnpplness. If I ever chance to meet her she makes a special effort to tell me what a fine husband she has and how good he Is to her.
Don't you think, Miss Grey, in tlie face of everything I would be justified in my revenge? And that you aro paying many times for both yours uud the man's mistake is evident; but oven so, two wrongs never made one right. The satisfaction you contemplate from such a course would never be yours.
