EDITORIAL PARAGRAPHS Cynthia Gray of the Star is on her vaca tion. We wonder if its at Mrs. Beals' expense. Six billion dollars is a whole lot of money, but Uncle Sam will raise it before you can say Jack Robinson. From the description of the ''fresh air gowns" now on exhibition in Eastern cities, Moth Eve's fig leaf costume must have been elaborate in comparison. The meeting next Sunday afternoon at Tutl 's shop is an open one and you are invited lo lie present. The capture of forty or more thousand Turks means that Turkey will be short of turkeys for years yet to come. While the Germans are still fighting on French soil, yet the homo Germans must begin to feel awfully uncomfortable. The only reason John L.

One ton of the average city garbage will yield enough glycerin for fourteen shells, enough fafs for seventy-five pounds of soap, and sufficient fertilizer to grow eight bush els of wheat. For the three months ending September 30, 1017, the number of killed and wounded on American railroads was 48,601. This is at the rate of 5,712 killed and 188.692 wounded per annum on our railroads alone. The trenches are not the only danger zones. Tax returns indicate that for the month * of May, 1918, the American public spent $45,000,000 on theaters, concerts and cab arets. A well-known Russian prince, an exile of the revolution, has opened a restaurant in London, and is doing the cooking him self. Former ladies of the czar's court are waitresses.

WHAT IS OUR RATIO? (From New York Age.) Wo have before us the twenty-second annual report of the United Jewish Char ities. In looking it through we came across a paragraph in the introduction to the re port, written by Mr. Max Ilirsch, the pres ident of the association. This paragraph caused us to take out our lead pencil and do ;i little figuring. In closing his intro duction. President Ilirsch said: "I cannot praise too highly the efficient work of our staff; to thorn no effort has been too great, no detail too small. Thanks is ;ils<i due the ladies of the Social Serv ice Bureau for their assistance in the sur vey of undernourished children, to the members of the Efficiency Committee for their intelligent criticism as well as con st mi-live RUggestions; but most of all is thanks due the big-hearted, generous Jews of Cincinnati, who responded so nobly to Hie cull recently made upon them.

ages, all of which she greatly enjoyed, and they made a wonderful imprssion on her. Mr. Massachusetts was there for the open ing day of school and greeted his pupils, one and all with almost pathetic tenderness. He mentally noted the wonderful improve ment in Molly and almost stammered when he shook hands with her. Everybdoy loved Mr. Massachusetts and he seemed to love everybody, especially the children and played no favorites. I's jest come to get your vize, Mistah Massatusets, bout Molly. I got a letter from some 'sity in de Nof wantin to edicate her, widout it costin me nuffin. I don't want to giv up my Molly, but I do want her to be a fin lady. Would you vize me to let her go." It was a happy moment for the teacher, but he concealed his happiness and looked puzzled. "Molly is an unusually bright pupil, and if she could go North she would make a mighty fine lady. I believe I would let her go. It, however, is quite dangerous for young girls to travel alone, but my mother and sist...

If a black cat runs across the road in front of you, turn back. A screeching owl at nijjht on your house top means a death in the family.

upon him or her in a couple of days and its an advertisement to be hauled before tlie courts and be fined. Soak it to the law-breakers and soak it to them good and hard and it will put the fear of God into their hearts and they will not be so ready to break the law. Even law breakers will cease to break the law when they under stand it is not profitable to break the law. Bootlegging should be no less heinous a crime than is burglary and as those who coimnite the latter offense are punished so should those who commit the former be punished just as severely. And now comes the statement from one who claims to know that Siberia is a second Alaska. In other words that vast expanse of the world so long looked upon as a vertiable ice field is a sleeping store house prepared by nature, and though it has been there perhaps since the founda tion of the world, yet circumstances have been against the aggressive part of the human family taking advantage of it.

He urged the mothers and fathers to send their children to school regularly and to clothe them corn- fortably. Mistah Young, who, by this time had ceased to be Marse John, interested him self in the quality of teachers sent to that school and went so far as to get a worthless colored teacher dismissed and a first class young native white man appointed instead, who laid a foundation in many of the minds of that eighty odd bunch of black boys and girls that has enabled them to hold their own after maturity among the best informed white citizens of the North. Despite the fact that lynching colored folk became quite a fad and even pastime all over the South Mistah Young raised his voice loud and long against it, which caused him to be severely cri...

HOW TO FIGHT SPANISH INFLUENZA An old enemy is with us again, although under a new name, say various editorial ob servers in noting the epidemic of Spanish influenza and recalling at the same time the "grippe" that was new a generation ago. Whether it was brought over in German submarines or not is lightly considered com pared to the more practical interest of the press in spreading information from the state and city health departments through out the country as to means of combating the disease. In nearly all sections of the United States this so-called Spanish influenza is prevalent, we learn from Washington dis patches which relate that twenty-three states, from New England in the East to California in the Southeast to Washington in the Northwest, are experiencing the mys terious malady. It is especially severe along the Atlantic seaboard and in military and naval camps. More than fourteen thousand new cases in the camps were reported to the office of the Surgeon-General within ...

EDITORIAL PARAGRAPHS Better late than never, runs an old adage, and applying it to the editor hereof, though sixty, lie is boasting of his first grand child, which is a daughter. Mrs. Ruth Cayton Wright presented her husband with a bouncing baby girl last Wednesday after noon and il was a drag and a draw between the father and the grandfather, which felt the better over the arrival of the young miss. It's really amusing to watch the local Democratic campaign committee search for victims with whom to make up a Demo cratic ticket for tin; coming fall election. Despite the fact there is a Democratic presi dent of oiii 1 country and a Democratic gov ernor of the state of Washington, yet Dem ocratic voters are as scarce this year as the proverbial hen's tooth. Segregation, so far as the colored citizens of this country are concerned, shows up so often that it's enough to discourage the strongest minds, but getting discouraged does not help the situation. It is the duty of vwvy man and wo...

EDITORIAL PARAGRAPHS Of course you do not read Cayton's Weekly; first because you do not have time to do so, and; secondly, because there is "nothing in it." Once upon a time a col ored man purchased a razor. He sat him self down, when he pot home, to have a shave and the razor being of excellent qual ity took liis rough beard off without a sound, which did not wholly satisfy the shaver and he called to his wife to bring to him liis boot, on which to strop the new razor, "it don't talk a bit." The blade was given a dressing on his raw hide boot, whirl) soon made of it a jack knife instead of ;i razor, and then he began again to shave himself. As the haggled blade half cui and pulled the hairs out of his face by the toots with a crash like unto a circular saw running through a keg of nails, in joy ful glee he exclaimed, "now she's talkin'."
