AU the little societies are
getting ready to send com
mitteeato the legislature to
tell the people's representa
tives what their little handful
of members want done ' to
keep the masses straight. The
pity of it is the , legislature
seems to forget that laws
should only be made at the
behest of a majority of our
people and not to accommo
date a mere handful repre
Bented by irresponsible com
So Germany, she that was
bo anxious to get into a scrap,
now wants peace when there
is no peace. Facing utter
and ultimate, destruction she
calls for a cessation of the
hostilities she started crying
in the name of that humanity
that Bhe has ruthlessly and
deliberately trodden umler
foot, of which the little Bth
gians are a bleeding example.
All would like to see the war
stop, -but let Germany fiibt;
enjoy soma of that humanity
Bhe has shown others. There
will be no permanent peace
until this is done. We fenow
not that Germany mereW
wants time to recuperate aud
pick a betier opportunity to
strike again. Her overtures
seem more of a boast and
demand than a sincere wish.

When you notice that grippy, stuff ed-up feeling take
Dr. Kings New Discovery and stop its progress. The
pure balsams in this old reliable cough " and cold remedy
soothe the sore throat, the antiseptic qualities cut the

J udging by some stuff ap
pearing in print recently one
might imagine Salisbury boys
are in about the same condi
tion as the Belgians, or rather
that theit? not a church, a
school, or a single opportune
ty for any of them within
fifty miles othw plaee, and
worse, the parents of these
boys are1 a- set of molly
'coddles who haven't brain
enough or interest enough in
their offsprings to furnish
them with" a shoe string or a
drink of water. When par
ents fail to jive their children
those things necessary for
their welfare they had as well
decide on the child's failure,
. No one else is fit to take such
responsibility nor are they
any more virtuous or compe
tent to do 60, nor can they be
expected to bave anything
like the feeling and interest
in your child that you should
have. After many years of
community effort in London
a meeting was held la'st week
deploring the fact that such
efforts were a flat failure or
rather vice among the youth
of that place had reached its
flood tide. Parents look
after your boys " yourself ,
about all the men jn this
country worthy of . the name
"were raised by their parents.

Read this suggestion with care, it is to your advantage.
"Give something useful this X-mas." Think that over,
Does it not sound like a suggestion in many ways? First,
by doing so you save your friend money, bacause, if you
had not given him a hat, sweater, pair shoes, shirt, nsck
tie or something of that sort, he woufd have to buy it, "al
so your gift," in the old way making Christmas a heavy
expense and being no better off but worse when it is over.
Fecond, he will want what you give him and you will have
the satisfaction of knowing it because you will see him
we nr it. Just think it over.
