'Responsible leadership which can not translate such a bulging economy Into assured prosperity Is destitute of capacity. But pom lions statesmen, looking over the estate, solemnly declare that the methods of which It was created are all wrong, ought to be abandoned, must be discarded, that the time has come to substitute political management for individual initiative and supervision.

Proof Of The Japanese Pudding In the crisis precipitated in the relations of the United States and Japan by the outrageous conduct of the Japanese armed forces in China, the Japanese Government has complied with the demands o£ the United States for complete apology, has promised such compensation as money can, effect to the families of the citizens-whose lives were wantonly destroyed and has given promise that hereafter its army and navy will comply -with the elementary precepts of civilized conflict in the undeclared war It is waging on China. The United States is perforce obliged to accept apology, promise of compensation A Job For A Giant Newton D. Baker, who died a few days ago and who was Secretary of War under President Wilson, undertook one of the most gigantic Jobs ever tackled by a human being. It was up to him during the World war, to take hold of a nation that was imbued with peaceful habits, and make it fighting country, and put nearly 4,000,000 of Its soldiers in the field ready for battle. It will always be the glory attaching to Mr. Baker's memory, that his mighty job was performed without any scandal, and that ho got a great army into Europe in n time so short as to amaze those slow moving nations. He must have consuriied a vast amount of vital energy in this superhuman task, which may have perhaps led to his death at the somewhat early age of 66. The country parts from him with deep regret. i *•• A"VlHW . ^x FO* HEAVENS ^ 5AKe TOY TO PASS SQMSTWlNCi* , -&A YMttt^ and. pledge of good behavior at their apparent value. The test • of the sincerity of Japan's fair words is in the future. One of the objects of its campaign In China Is to eradicate the prestige of western .nations among the peoples of Asia. This .purpose It has already largely accomplished. That It will sacrifice the advantages It: has thus gained Is an assump- tlonifew,will readily embrace. Con- iy, the conduct of the Japanese In China will hereafter be scrutinized' even more closely than It has been in the past. The proof of the pudding the Japanese have cooked lies not. in its looks but In the eating. Foolishness? That's Put', • ting It Mildly There are times when we need •ornepne outside the family to size us upland tell us where we get off; someone who doesn't love us and isn't '.afraid of hurting our feel- Ings;: who will inform us in plain words when and how we are. making fools of ourselves. /Whether we like It or not—and generally we don't like it—it's good ior us now and then to have our sjelf-complacenee jarred by an outsider's honest opinion. This is true pf Individuals and perhaps it by the London Sphere: .With this in mind we invite careful reading of this unimpassioned view expressed in a recent issue zy the London Sphere: "The United States contains C per cent, of the world's area and 7 per cent of its population. It normally, consumes 48 per cent of the world's coffee, 53 per cent of its tin, 56 per cent o£ Its rubber, 21 per cent of Its sugar, 72 per cent of its'silk, SG'per cent of its coal, 42 per cent of its pig iron, 47. per centofjls. copper, and. 69 per cent of .Itc. crudeMjetroieum. "The United "States operates per cent of 'the world's., telephone and telegraph facilities, ow'ris per cent of tho motor cars In use, operates 33 per cent of the ra.'I- It produces 70 per cent of the oil, 60 per cent of the wheat and cotton, 50 per cent of the copper .and p!g Iron, and 40 per cent of the. lead and coal output of the globe: "The United States possesses al- mo»t ^11,000,000,000 In gold, or Maily half'of tho world's monetary metal. It nan two-iiilrds of civilization's banking resources. The pur- American Heroes High honors will be paid to the men who have survived the cruel attack made on the United States warship Panay in the Yangtze river of China. As one reads how these men fired back at the brutal airplanes tbat threatened every minute to sink this doomed crnft, and how they took care of the wounded and got them safely away under threat of attack, It is seen as one more story of American heroism. When pur soldiers and sailors are put In any such tight place, they show they are descended from men who have fought for liberty and freedom in many lands. The best defense of the United States is not in the powerful warships that stand guard over our coasts and harbors, but in the hearts of steel inside them, that are ready to defend with their lives the people who have committed the national safety to their hands. TODAY'S TALK By GEORGE MATTHEW ADAMS Author of "You Can;" "Just Among Friends" Protecting Our Rights Relief will be lelt that the Japanese government has made somewhat humble apologies for the brutal and lawless attack on the American gunboat Panay, and that these apologies have been accepted and the "incident" closed. The American people are in no mood to go to war, much as they Those Greek Shadows Human nature does not change throughout the centuries I have an interesting set of Plutarch's Lives in my library The introduction to the first volume is by Ralph Waldo Emei son. In it he tells of the custom in those days as regard entertaining. Guests were 1 invited, but usually each gues brought along several of 'his friends, which were known a "shadows." Plutarch, commenting upon such a custom, said: "There fore, when I make an invitation, since it is hard to break th custom of a place, I give my-guests leave to bring shadows but when I myself am invited as a shadow, I assure you I re fuse to go." Which proves that so many hundreds of years ago there lived a man who had a deal of self-respect, who preferred be a guest and not a shadow of one. Such folks today wo sometimes call "gate crashers," anc to use a word quite as realistic, were "spongers." Too many people travel all through life as mere shadow, to 'someone else, taggers to someone learned or famed, 01 merely to those notorious. It is a suggestion to us all to go where we go, as a Somebody, or not at all. In other words, to be a modern Plutarch upon our own, for what we are, or have done. There is a note of grandeur to the innately proud human being, who chooses to be something in his own riijht. notable in sincerity and character. Not just a "shadow" among others, mixing just to mix, or to grab at the foam of temporary acclaim, leaving with none of the substance. In government there is an endless stream of Lords, Congressmen, Senators, or whatnot—hut how mierhty few are the Statesmen among the lot! These latter are the fruests of the world, and of history. They shine like Moons and Suns. The Horoscope (Copyright, 1938, by the McClure Newspaper Syndicate) deplore and condemn this brutal! according to astrology .There nv attack.

If he does so, he is likely, to spend some \yeeks in a hospital. Even if he recovers dam ages, this will not compensate him for suffering and loss of time. Fatal Christmas Five hundred people lost their lives at Christmas because of violent death In some form. Traffic accidents were the leading cause. Therfe are a good many people who can't seem to celebrate without passing the bounds of prudence. Still, with over 100,000,000 people observing the holiday In some way, that proportion Is not large. Our excitable people kill more than that number every week in automobile accidents. The maxims ot caution, such as "Better be safe thnn be sorry," and "Look before you leap," etc, are considered out of date now.

CLOTHE the ENTIRE FAMILY at a SAVING it tho R. & G. Dep't Store Temp/e Ba/'/ey COPYKlCHTi RELEASED BY CENTRAL PRESS ASSOCIATION CHAPTER 46 I WENT to work In earnest : .fter my lawyer wrote of inade- juate finances. I bent over my 3sk for hours. I left the house- '.vork, largely, to Mimi and to rtmothy Hayes. Timothy had en- :ered upon the domestic scene as i substitute for Sally. He had .lelped his mother, he could help Mimi. He would have adored doing It for nothing. But I insisted on a .vage. He was not an expert, but he wag industrious. He could wield a broom and wash dishes, and save Mimi a thousand steps. It was at this time that Jason, :iic collie, and young Timothy be- •jan to be Mimi's constant com- :t.nions. I could see them from my window as 1 wrote, making their way to the lower level— Jason keeping well ahead with his rteady trot—Timothy, his face up- :urned to Mimi. She told them :tories. That was the great bond ^twecn them—Orson, the Little >ay Mouse, Good Little Henry. They would come back up the ill with fresh eggs in n basket, vith Vegetables from the garden, 3r with fruit from the orchards. Mimi was taking her housekeeping seriously, there were things to be canned, things to be preserved, and things to be pickled. Mrs. Hayes Initiated her into all of the mysteries. After one day's orgy of preserving 1 , Mimi dragged me into the kitchen. "Look, Jerry, aren't they wonderful?" She displayed row upon row ot. jars and glasses- amber and ruby and deep amethyst .-.'here the sun shone through. She was disheveled but tri umphant. She was tied up in a huge gingham apron, and there was a ..burn on her arm. I triec to be enthusiastic about her achievements, but I hated to sei her in the aspect of a kitchen maid. I wished that she migh look always as she did at the end of the day. She managed then to have Timothy or me put the finishing touches to the dinner while she had a quick bath, and slipped on one of her charming gowns She would come to the table fresh and fragrant, her hair carefully coiffed. transformed as it were in a moment from the kitchen slavey to the chatelaine of the castle. No matter how tired she W our dinners had always this effect of formality. She even taught Timothy to serve, so that he could change plates and pass the bread and vegetables. Hia ecstasy was complete. He was, I am sure, in imagination, cupbearer to a princess—a princess who wore gowns which revealed the loveliness of her white neck, and who was a: fragrant as a rose. He liked her best that way—as a princess. And I liked her best— as a princess. Well, who can blame a man for that? Yet, if I had thought of It then, as I think of it now, I would have remembered that my father's love for my mother had been stable and steady In spile of her plain hair, her print gowns, her lack of elegance. Things Jogged along with some effect of harmony and happiness through September and into October. I had finished a story and had sent it off. Mimi had organized, of all things, a dancing, class for the tribe of small Hayeses! They had their lessons out of doors, and she had contrived costumes of home-dyed cottons and of autumn leaves. Timothy was a faun, and the bacchante of small Suslo Hayes was nn amazing achievement. Her purple and russet draperies, the wreath of vines, fleeting memory of Theresa's grace and beauty. "Isn't she adorable?" Mimi asked, with her eyes on Susie. "She is so utterly in earnest and so oblivious of her freckles - " "You've worked a miracle, Mimi." "Well, it's interesting—. Doing things like this, Jerry. And they are such dears. Look at Timothy — ! Isn't he the spirit of youth? I am teaching him to be light on his feet, and fleet. He simply adores that word — 'fleet 1 . He makes me say it over and over." It was after dinner, and we were sitting on the porch. The children danced In an open space among the aspens. The golden leaves were tailing, blown about ay an autumn wind — . The music was provided by Timothy, for whom I had made n pipe of reeds — its thin notes seemed a part of the magic of the twilight—the purple shadows — the faint stars — . In the half-light, the children seemed transformed — Timothy, slender and beautiful, fluttered his fingers above his rustic Instrument — the weird notes came like the of Pan. If anyone had told me, when Mimi and I watched the dancing children, that 24 'hours later We vould face chaos, 1 would have aughed at them. I was in a mood Df quiet content. I had finished my story and felt it was good. Mimi's Imnd was In mine—God vas in His heaven—! I had planned to spend the next lay up on the mountain. There vas wood to be cut, and I was to ake two of my men with me to Icclde on tho trees which must be acrlficed. Mini! decided to stay ftt home. There arc tomatoes spoiling on he .vines," she told me, "and Mrs, laycs Is going to show mo how to inko catsup and chill." "Must you do It today?" "Why not? While you are get through early, and I'll rest, and be all ready for you. And you won't see me performing the dreadful rites." I put my finger under her chin. "Do you really feel that they arc dreadful rites?" "No, 1 rather like it all, Jerry. I feel so—useful—" she made a little face at me—. "Perhaps, underneath, I'm just French housewife. Who knows? But you don't like me tied np in gingham aprons." "I like you in anything," I protested violently. "Not so much when I'm not groomed and gorgeous. That's the man in you, Jerry. You men say you want us domestic and housewifely, but you don't know yourselves. The women that you really fall for are the Circes and Loreleis." I hotly denied it. 1 racked my mind for literary examples of domestic bliss. There was Ruth Pinch and her beefsteak pudding, and Bella Wilfer and her cookery book. But it wasn't Bella and her cookery book John Harmon fell in love with," Mimi reminded me, "it was Bella and her curls." She had me there. 1 murmured that someone had done an omelette — kidney omelette—in one of Arnold Bennett's novels, and that the picture was unforgettable. "But she was a Circe at heart, and did it to enslave him. She wasn't just housewifely and happy." ' With all her air of taking the argument easily, 1 felt a strain of earnestness in what she said. 1 wondered, as I rode along, If I had made her feel that 1 valued her :or her loveliness rather than for the finer and deeper things which might develop through sacrifice, i My father's words came back toi me, "When you hold the soul of » voman In your hand, Jerry." (To Be Continued) '. Do you really feel that they are dreadful rites? r
