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, ed. 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 i tO eJilOIVG pcuco.

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 DISCUSSION 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 n::: ling tTic only terms upon which lheir enemies are willing to lay down i heir arms. :;<) REAL CHANGE TV GERMANY, DESPITE MAXIMILL1AN Officials, who informally say tfcoy find no reason fort hinking peace will he brought appreciably nearer by the latest developments, point to the pre* cut situation in Germany and at ihe battle fronts.

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.

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.

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.

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.
