Some day The Star is going to look up the amount that la.w 'fees have cost this county. At the present rate it is go- to make good reading. ia ||h rth in Humnnity , says Professor Kenneth g. Latourette of ; ,,V Yale, may be on the verge of a new "dark ages." Within a ;</few years, or even a few months, he says, society may col- > lapse and its fragments may be drawn into a whirlpool of ,, ^misery and chaos unparalleled in modern history. S • What makes his prediction so ominous is the fact fhat 't^lis schqlar is not alone in his pessimism. Some of the wisest of our "time, looking tp the future, can see nothing but 1 ?r, Any thinking man must have moments in which hing ahead seems exceedingly gloomy. The only comfort is that things are hardly ever quite as afc they seem. Human beings, somehow, have a' way of WWg destruction lying \i\ wait just around the corner. They •ajisg, without realizing it, have a may of muddling through, a ^yryiving when survival seems highly improbable, And o.ne reason why the darkest prophecies so seldom e true is probably that most of us, deep in our hearts, do not really believe in them. Deeply embedded in man's con. Wousness, ilJpgical but enduring, is the unspoken conviction that he is on eajth, a s the phrase used to go, for a purpose ; that Jbe ia slowly and painfully moving upward, and will continue to dp so, not because he is wise and far-seeing but aimply because he is riding a current that wells up from the very fountajnhead O f the universe. We seldom talk about that feeling. It is seldom ex- prejised ijipubjic speeches, in newspaper articles, in books or in magazines^-rranfl, when it is, the intellectuals promptly fruph it to scorn. Yet the feeling persists. No age has entirely lack/ad it. We are confident of oiu- destiny. th'' ccpfid^nce. in Jts turn, breeds courage; the ''rage which enables th£ race to live through its world wars, Its financial breakdowns, its disillusionmentt; and its bajck «atas- "c-hcs. The -aby.es may Jie just uhc-ud, but beypnd it ther* id ^ new slppg to surmount, on which th light will be ctearer. That,- or something like it, is what most of us believe. We J may be wrong-^~but the belief at least keeps us from panic, i Rent It! Find It! Buy It! Sell It!

No More Dirigibles LONDON.—Drastic economy measures have caused England to abandon all hopes of constructing more dirigibles and to announce that the R-100, its largest, will be disposed of in the interests of economy. This is the ship which made the successful flight to Canada and back. ground at this place Sunday was enjoyed by a large crowd. Mr. and Mrs., Luther Sutton, children, ohd Mrs. J. H.
