As long as any one is’ dissatisfied there is hope. Persons who violated the request not to use gasoline on Sunday and wound up in the hospitals are apt to make a wonderful hit with Sur geons, nurses, and orderlies. A lot of problems solve them selves if let alone.. Pity the grouch; it is his own punishment. I see that some German statesmen say we must have an honorable peace. It will be an honorable peace all right, because one of the principal reasons is that Germany will have no voice m it. The trouble with many iron wills is that they become rusty. Don’t try to obtain the best by get ting the best of a fellow. “There are just as good fish in the sea as has ever been caught.” Sure, but they are the wise guys. They have never been caught and perhaps never will be. It might help the Rhine towns some it they would kick over the traces and deal direct with the Allies. In Honolulu they make hay from sugar cane tops. Now if some of ou laboratory men would .reverse the situation, all would be well. | Stubbornness is often the inabil ity to know just how to act.

The Rhine must appear much nearer now that the boys are viewing it through Lens. Apparently a false impression pre vailed with reference to the motives that actuated the prisoner who walk ed away from his guards the ' other night, and later returned to the pen. Tis said that he diden’t object to stockade life but, but finding it a trafle monotonous, took a brief vaca tion. Someone suggests the kee^ng of a TYiPTiu book.

A LITTLE SCOTCH. Lemon juice it is said will remove freckles. After looking at some of the afflicted ones I guess freckles are the cheapest. Now they have it that Von Hinden- burg has committed suicide, which is really the most plausible story of his death, yet reaching us. Why shouldn-t he follow the example of his country? Two old Scotchmen sat by the road side, talking and puffing away merrily ^*"“Th«e^s^^no miickle pleasure in smokin’, Sandy,” said Donald. “Hoo dae ye mak that ott. ques tinned Sandy. “Week” said Donald, “ye_ see if ye’re smokin’ yer ain l>acca ye re think in’ o’ the awfu’ expense, an if youre smokin’ some ither ramm’t sae tight it winna draw. —Tit Bits.
