It*8 the Next Step of a Losing Trader
Each Tlmr Coming Nearer to Meet
the Demands of IIis Adversary
WASHINGTON, Oct. 6.?German's
newest peace ofTer?propositi!; an arir.
iatlco while President Wilson consid
ers and conveys to the Allies a propo3
al on the basis of terms laid down by
the President himself?had not reach
ed Washington in official form tonight
and there was therefore no authorized
statement of how it was regarded by ,
the Unites States.
EFFORTS TO SAVE SOMETHING,
FROM THE WRECKAGE
Plainly, however it was recognized
as the next step in the continung ef
.forts of the German statesmefl to sav^
something from the wreckage of their j
dream of world domination, .the step :
which might he expected trtjm a los |
ing trade r who makes his proposition
has it rejectee and offers his next best
each time coming nearer to' the de j
mands of his adversary, meanwhile en
deavoring to hold out In the hopes of
getting the hest. terms he can.
NO COUNCIL TABLE QUIBBLING. I
It hardly is taking a position in ad ;
vcnce of the American government
to say that If the present proposition
^tenlfles Germany's unqualfled aceep I
Jlice of tho four principles of peace
laid down by Pres. Wilson in his |
Fourth of July speech at the tomb of |
Washington, it will be considered. If
It doesn't; if an acceptance "In prin |
ciplo" with savng diplomatic language j
p;r. npr the way for quibbling around i
a - . uncil table, it will not be consider,
IT IS NOT GERMANY'S DEAL
Those terras accepted by all the Al I
lies ah their own, the President com 1
pressed into a single sentence.
"Reign of law based upon the con I
sent of the governed and sustained
by the organized opinion of mankind."
They provided for the destruction
or reduction to virtual Impotence, or
any arbitrary power capable of dis
turbing the peace of the world; the
settlement of every question on the
basis of the interest of the people con
cerned, and in effect a league of na

WASHINGTON SCORNS SCGGIIS
T ION OP ARMISTICE
No 5m TVashinrtnn. even v* m'icb
gives a though? to any proposal
that the victorious troops of Great
Lritaln. France. It?'y and the United |
Siates should halt in an armistice |
while a "discussion" is conducted.:
There might be an armistice of the
same nature as .v..* given to Bulgaria.i
an armistice of unconditional sur.ren '
When Austria proposed a peace no
gotiation the official vie,v was sum
med up this way:
"Austria Is breaking; that is the
time to hit her hardest, not the time
to talk peace."
ALL PTHACIl OFFERS MUST STAND I
THE ACID TEST
There is nothing to indicate that 1
the view ha:j been changed. No one
here doubts that sooner or later Ger !
many is going to make a peace offer
that may be worth considering. (None 1
of the Allies wishes to ar-sirme the
responsibility erf"prolonging the w?r
a- day longer than is necessary to in
sure the future peace of the wori.:
Therefore, it is realize,i that offers of
peace .are not to be rejected "before
they are examined. Prince Maximi!
lian's offer with those said to be com
ing simultaneously from Austria and
Turkey will go under the sarao aci
test which has been applied to p.'l t',
others. If it fails to stand the test
it will go the way of all the others.
THE LAST TRY - AT DIPLOMATIC
Germany h?r-elf fr. nartlciprtine for
mally now for the first time ill an
open ?"d direct proposal of peace.
The move is believe^ to mark the be
Tinning of the last phrase of the effort
to substitute* diplomatic discussion for
military operations before the Allied
and American armies crojs the Rhine
and give German soil a taste of what
has happened to Belgium and North
cr:i trance The proposals even
may be a little more specific than of
ficials o? the American government
had expected as a sequel to President
Wilson's flat rojection of Austria's
request for secret and non binding
discussions, but apparently no one her<?
is ready to conclude that the Kaiser's
?ow rnv>ve;ii has reached Kthe point

Red Cross Contributions for Last
Again it becomes our privilege to
thank our farmer friends for their
lihoral contributions of tobacco. Your
gifts will help to win the war. and wc
must win it in a way that will enable
us to look our heroes in the eye when
they return, .and say, "we were T*r4th
you to the end."
When a Hun yellf^ "Kamerad" with
a grenade in one han<j and a gun Tn
the other, our boys stick him with a
beyonet. When he throws up his empty
hands, they accept his surrender. The
Kaiser Is yelling Kamerad while he
burns Camhrai and deports the French
inhabitant* of Metz.
A few weeks d<May will put hi ar
mies back in shape to kill more of our
boys. We must not give him a chance.
Don't fall for that 'Kamerad stuff.
Help while help counts. Give the way
our boys are fighting?to the limit.

Treatment for Seed Wheat
The following; bulletin has been is
sued by the United Stales -Food Ad
, ministration regarding the treatment
of seed wheat:
It is moat desirable that the farmers
be eauiioned against sowing wheat
that has any smut contamination, with
out treating it. The method is-simple
and inexpensive. Following is a ver
ihatim copy of a bulletin on the sub
ject by a College of^Agrlculture of
tiie State of Missouri:
Wheat heads affected with cohered
: nr.it show the jinnies <>r flight?
ly pushed apart with a dark colored
?grain between. T!ie grain is really a
smut ball, which on being crushed,
Ircaks up into a large number of min
nte dust liko particles, tho smut
t-po/es. These have a very disagree
al l? odrr. The pores, when the smut
ball Ishroken, get on the soun(t grain
sir.d produce infection when the latter
i-^ planted in th?i noil. To prevent
t -'.it lii-1?po <? ? <-'i ti* ? r! m be?

b Hv STINKING SMUT OF
A H K AT
Th<* solution of formaldehyde used
I for treating stinking smut of wheat is
; made by using one pint or one pound
I of commercial formalin (guaranteed
]40 per cent solution of formaldehyde)
j to forty gallons of water. Use either
the dippinp o?. sprinkling method. One
? gallon of solution is sufficient to treat
'one bushefl of grain by either method.
CAUTION?Do not put treated seed
on a smutted floor or in smutted sacks
.nor sow with a smutted drill. Smut
l*od s.irks should be soaked for thirty
j min ite? in a strong solution made by
| putting one pint of formalin in ten
gallons of water. Bins, floors and
[drills may be scrubbed with this
I strong solution.
1. DIPPING?Take two half barrels
or tubs with holes and plugs near tho
bottom. Place one tub on two saw
? horse* and fill two thirds full with the
solution of fi i maldehydt Pour slo?v
bushel of wheat seed, stirring tlior
oughly for five to ten minutes so that
the smut balls, trash, etc., will reach
the surface. Skim this "material off,
then drain the solution into the sec
ond tub. * Pour the seed into a pile on
tho floor. Kxchange position of tubs
and repeat the operation. Cover the
treated seed with sacks for four to
ten hours. Sow at once or spread
the seed out to dry.
2. SPRINKLING?Remove smut
balls, trash etc., from the see^ by
thorough fanning. Spread the seed
out on the floor or wagon bed in a lay
er four to six inohes deep. Sprinkle
the solution of -formaldehyde, using a
watering can, on the seed. 8W>vel the
