"However, let us hearken to good advice.'and  something may be done for us; Clod helps Ihem  that help themselves, as poor Richard says."  Franklin died 130 years ago but his words apply as much today as they did in Ihc Limes of our  grandfathers.  The followingJrom "Chalmers Gomes Back.',  by W. J. Dawson, is the latest contribution to aj  question which has hccn widely discussed andi  "has been the cause of not a little ill-feeling: j  "I am an American, so don't think lam cap-;  able  of  disparaging America.

Where Secrets Are Kept  The marquis of Marlinglon tells an episode  from llie war days when the spy scare? was al ils  heigh I according lo a writer in the Halifax  Chronicle.    Certain confidential information  Ihnf  Llie military authorities wantecMo keep absolutely secret was se.nl around bv trusted couriers in  locked   dispatch   boxes,   wilh   elaborate  'prccau  held il splendidly. Thej" did'greal things in the  Argonne. Bul do you know lhat up to'thc very  end of the war hardly an American airplane was  in the air? They weren't ready. The American  aviators flew in French and 13rilish machines.  Sometimes they had refilled them with American  engines, but lhal was all. '  "Thc fact is���������������������������and it's a splendid fact���������������������������lhal  America had laid her plans for a long war. She  built railways right a'cross France lo supply her  Iroops wilh food and munitions. She had organized wilh tremendous eflicicncy for at least i'ourj  years of war. Obviously il follows that when!  Lhe Avar ended suddenly.-.she had not puL forth  her strength. It v.-as there but il wasn't mobilized. Therefore it is nonsense to say lhal America won the war. She helped immensely by her  wealth and her unsuspected military efficiency  and thc eli"ec,t these tilings had in destroying the  morale of Germany.
