The Kansas City Star editorially refers to what the soldier boys will know and what they will do when Ihey come home, after winning the war, as follows; "Brrry hard rain isolates Kansas Oily by road from all the surrounding territory that Is not reached by hard surface highways. The motor truck or the automobile is left wallowing In the mud. The same thing is true of virtually every town in Missouri or Kansas. Until the roads are dried out the farmer starts at his peril for 1.1' berty or Warrenshurg or Sedatla ol> Sallna or' Hutchinson. < 'When the men get- home from Franco, nfler their experience with the splendid macadam highways there, what will they do about the roads, of their homo states?" Germany really needs metals for wnr uses so murh that she Is melting hc 'i »*flla lues, made of copper and bronze. From one side of the empire lo the other, In Berlin itself am! In Munich and other large elites, everything possible Is being done lo get metals the Huns must have to continue the fighting. It is evidence that Germany, (hough not whipped, Is In a precarious state and only waiting for the last big punch to make sure and certain Hun defeat. Some newspaper hinted that the kaiser was fearful that some of his six sons might fall over the west bank of the Rhine into that stream in their hurry to gel back lo Berlin. It's mistake; the sous are already on the east slile of that stream and probably not close enough to be in danger of gelling their feet wet In its waters. The American soldiers are protected from the aircraft of the enemy, is the latest report from France. We have enough fliers of fjur own and enough machines to make the boche hustle like everything to keep out of the "way. Nearly all- of the air fighting these days is done behind the enemy's lines. ^ The Canal du Nord didn't prove to be much of a barrier for the protection of the German, armies, hurried across it to escape the armies of Marshal Foch. It takes more than a canal to stop the advance of the Allied legions these days. So many American soldiers are spending their pay in France that the rate of exchange has grown to be exceedingly favorable to America. It takes a lot of mony to conduct a first class war. GERMANY'S FAILURES. Germany has tried everything she could think of in the war, to win.- And up to this lime everything has fulled to bring the decision she de^- Elrcd. Her most conspicuous failure, atler monliiK nml months of trial, is the submarine. It hasn't delivered the goods. It Is much more than a year and a half ago that the Germans said by July 1, ian, Groat Britain would hu brought to her knees in supplication, praying fur peace lo ti^ve her people from slarvatlon, because the • • submarine would sink all of the ships bringing food to the. Kngllsh. Tlint ditto passed and Hie time limit was also changed to a later, dale, Just to keep the Germans at homo satisfied. This Inter dale has also gone by and the Knglish people have more food than they have had tor two years, more than a million and a hull American soldiers have gone across (ho AilainU- (o light the Hun at his own game, and the days of the efliei- uney of Ihe submarine are numbered. Germany planned a great many things for the war, all for winning. Hut sho has utterly failed iu one thing, and that Is fur defeat. She had no arrangements made for being whipped. And when she finds sho Is whipped and thai her future is far •worse than Just "uncerliiln" she will know what it menus tij force the world into a war, < The two big nations that will bo Jower down in the ranks of ihe "powers" that the world hus previously, known, when this war is over, wJU bo Germany and Austria. They staked everything on winning the,war by hootf" or crook and the whole BOiicme. J H rcaellng on them. Ucrtuuny hus died everything 1 B I IO could think of lo win thij war? lnclud- iins the illegitimate use of the subuia- j'jue, and hus lulled. Now Is the time to get ready to en- 'Joy life In Kansas, for those of us who are not in the war work. The autumn days In this climate are 'the finest of the fine. Nothing can surpass them.

V« * * <?.*<?'$•*•<«>•?> <$> ***** «> Somo weekB ago 1 asked my readers to tell me what had been the happiest years of their life. ' ^ The most interesting thing about Iho letters 1 received, was that not one claimed youth as the happiest period. It is impossible to print all the' letters, but 1 must give you extracts from two thai carry' a message o£ courage and comfort to anyone who thinks thai, with Ihe passing of youth, hap- pluoss also must pass. "1 am well Into Uio forties, have lived in several different places and have hail experience as teacher, wife and mother, and It is iiicoinprehen slble to me how one who has had children can Bay tliat any time of life previous to their coming was I lie happiest, i'hud a happy childhood, my school dayB wore precious, and many happy memories clustor around my years of teaching. Today, settled down In my pleasant farm homo, I find myself happier than ever. When one has reached the age of forty, If one has profited by mistakes and kept the mind open and sympathetic, one has so much better sense of values and proportion than one can possibly have In ones youth. Your quotation (rom Drowning Is one my favorites and 1 believe, whatever comes, the best of life is now and yet to be." The other letter is such a brayc, bountiful pic-lure of tho sunshine and shadow of a humble life, that I Itnow It must touch many hearts. •'One of the happiest years of my life was (ho year before I was married. Kveryihlug looked wonderful lo mo. then came my realization of life with all Its worries. The next time J thought 1 had Heaven on earth, was when my lltljo girl was born, after having four boys. I was young ami Birong enough to gather Ihem around me and enjoy, picnics and fishing and flowergathertog, then caino sickness and death and trouble, but 1 was able to stand It as I always hud A childish habit ot Jumping on my two feet and feeling alive, and knowing that the time would coitie when wo could look back and thank the I-ord Cur Iho strength to overcome." ^ "It was heaven, again, when my two qldoet were through Bcboollug an^t had- trades, each, and were able to bring home surprises In sandy and flowers and WHSM I USS mi Uiinim J Garnelt Is another of the eastern' Kansas cities that are bragging a good bit about the big rairig recently. 1 Kismet had a three-inch rain this weffk which'puts that pari of the state a long way In the lead In the crop line. Haven is to have a community service flag tor the large number of young men from that section that have gone to war. y There are days now and then when Garden City, with all of her big crowds of automobiles, needs a traffic officer on several corners. If you turn around in the wrong place in the streets of Wacksville you stand a good chance of having a con­ stable.airesl you for it. Burrton is to spend some money graveling her ptrcets and the roads approaching the city from tho country in the hope of improving conditions. A girl in Burrton knitted two sweaters in less than eight days. She won't have any trouble finding a perfectly good soldier for a husband when the war js over.: One of the best looking of the Junior cities of Kansas is Hays, which has the up-to-date appearance o/ a city several times as large. Hays Is filled with good people. Atchison county has a service flag with a thousand stars in it, showing that many in the army from that one county. After awhile we'll begin to know we're in the war. / Tho farmers of Pratt county are holding a meetlug today to talk over Ihe matter of seed wheat for some farmers further west rfnd other matters in connection with the crop. The standard price for wheat is causing it to he shipped out of the slate as rapidly as cars can bo found to carry it. There is some fear that it will leave too little for seed and for the use of the millers, . ~ wonnds, 6; wounded, degree nndctrr- •mined, 31 j woiittdcd, slightly,-.. 1,^ Total, 148.

The Light period covers the moonlit halt ot the month. Should It bo attended by lino weather, great aerial activity prevails. l'ructlcnlly any raid thnt la possible by day can be carried out equally well at night during this period, for although certain details are not clearly visible, the essential features of the tjiound stand out clearly and can' easily bo followed. The ease with which targols can be found depends very largely on their geographical position.. Water Is the great guide lor night flylns, and op/iLtcIvnr moonlight ni ^H it can be seen from a great distance. Hence targets situated near a river, canal or lake present no difficulty whatever as regards their being found. • Hallways, too, if they are in use, prove guides, for thel rails shine clearly in I lie moonlight and can easily be followed. Woods, especially If they.'ttre of peculiar shape, make good landmarks, for the black mass, which shows up werL in the moonlight, can be quickly Identified on ihe map. During the Light period most ot the long raids of tbe squadron are carried out. The Dark period, the moonless nighla, is a much less active time. Flying is then done chiefly by the aid of a compass, but on clear starlit nights raids on targets such as factories with chimneys or ..blast furnaces whose glow lights up the sky for miles, may be carried out satisfactorily. On a still night/a compass course can be glown quite accurately, but unfortunately there are comparatively few nights on which the wind remains constant, it either changes in velocity 'or direction, and in the air lt _8 difficult to distinguish these changes. A machine is very likely to bo blown out of Its course several miles without the pilot's knowledge. Therefore only short raids are undertaken, and thus the risk of pilots completely losing their bearings Is minimized. Often two or throe short raids are carried out in one night.
