DEBTS OF HONOR.
Goldsboro News. I
We hare been told by several ofl
our continental friends that the war
debts they incurred were not com
mercial transactions. / It is quite
trua; they were not. As a matter
of business our government would
have lent them nothing; individuals
would have lent them a few hundred
| millions, but nothing like the sum J
1 they borrowed. The money was loaned j
to save fee lives of the borrowers, i
without security and with the cer
tainty that if Germany won the debts
would never be paid, and if the allies
won it was not certain that repay
ment would be possible.
These war debts are not commer
cial loans, but debts of honor, and be
tween gentlemen a debt of honor is
paid whether commercial obligations
can be settled or not. We should expect
nations that incurred debts of honor
to us, who could not have survived MSe
war but for our financial as well as
military assistance, to strain every
nerve to pay as much as they could.
We should have expected them to
make offers to pay without waiting
to be dunned.
We should not have expected them
to set up claims that they owed us
nothing because the debts were debts
of honor instead of commercial obli
gations. We should not have ex
pected them to beg that the principal •
be shaved and the interest made very
low —lower than the interest our gov
ernment is paying on the money bor
rowed for them —and payments of any
sort be deferred for decade. Ap
parently our debtors, unofficially, did
not wish to pay and were determined
to pay as little as possible, and there
were some indications that they paid
only because they wanted to borrow
money here and they could hardly ex
pect to get more money if they re
pudiated what they had already bor
Well, perhaps nations are not gen
tlemen and do not know anything
about debts of honor, but it is rather
disconcerting to have this view of the
matter pressed upon us. At any rate,
England and some of the smaller na
tions hjive funded their obligations
to ns, and now Belgium settles on the
basis of the terms of the Versailles
treaty, which this country did not rati
fy! Our government felt fee obli
gations of honor where there was no
contract. It was- a debt of honor an

The Slow Mills and the Markets, i
Charlotte Observer. ,
The textile people in the piedmont
belt are more interested just now iu
the state of electric power than they
are in the state of the market, for,
if the current becomes much weaker, i
market conditions will have but small
interest for them. Nevertheless, it
is well to know how the market is
faring in this season of enforced cur- i
tailment of production in the South.!
Trading seems quiet, as well as pro
duction. The Textile World reports
that an improved tone in many classes
of finished goods for fall is well main
tained. Leading commission house
merchants look forward to a steady
fall business with slow but consistent I
improvement in general business. The
government cotton report of August
15th showing a condition of 82 per I
cent of normal and an indicated yield |
of 18.900,000 bales, was in line with ]
general expectations in the trade. It
has made no difference one way or
the other in the goods market, and
very slight reductions have taken place
in fee raw material.
The Textile World considers i.t safe
to predict that this year’s cotton crop
will be in excess of 14,000,000 bales,
inasmuch as the government has con
sistently underestimated during recent
years. Confidence is growing, how
ever, in the relative stability of raw
material prices at approximately pres
ent levels. There seems no likeli
hood of radical fluctuations in either

Boys and girls need heartier breakfasts
now—especially if they carry a cold
lunch. Hot cereal, eggs or bacon, stew
ed fruit with graham bread toast, and
milk or cocoa is none too much. If the
children come home for luncheon, don’t
neglect to prepare at least one warm dish
—soup or a vegetable or baked dish hot
from the oven.
Provide good light for evening les
sons. Gas light is mellowest and most
• restful of all. If you burn gas, equip
the lights with new mantles. A study
lamp is also a good investment.

Hwith hot water and soap the minute the
