A yearago he might have claimed Necessity is also the mother of a league of nations. Congress comes to bai full of ginger and the determination to hit out a home run. SriLL It was not intended that Germany should accept the peace terms with applause. The world will never be as bad as some people think it is or as they think it ought to be. Alas the college graduate will not arrive in time to solve the world’s most serious problem, If Foch ever announce a lunch eon engagement in Berlin he may be relied on to keep it to the min ute. Lots of men who have traces of greatness in their make up spoil everything by kicking over the traces. Denmark will not object to re ceiving more territory provided that territory is not ail cluttered up with Germans. Austria is to take one of the heads off its eagle That two headed bird never knew where it was going anyway. Mandate or no mandate, the Turk may as well recognize the fact that his days for organizing massacre parties are over. Herr Scheidmann proclaims that "the world has again lost an an illusion"—the illusion that Ger many was to rule the world.

Geh.MAN^ is strong now for the fourteen points—well by ihe time we hnish riiiiiniing them di»wn her throat It became necessary to add a few mure. Another thing that should diS' pose Congress to favor the league of nations is (hat the league will provide a few snug harbors for lame ducks. Congress is now giving a life hke imitation of a lot of gentlemen trying to make believe that woman suffrage was always their heart’ greatest desire. It may comfort certain United States Senators to know that Pres identhbert, of Germany,also hopes that the American Senate will re ject the peace treaty in its present form. With the rest of the world gone dry and Germany putting out the "old familiar juice” Germany should worry about its war debt, It can get rich on the growler trade alone. Some returned soldiers are solv ing the problem of displacing man workers by marrying the wo men and taking over the jobs This is not forcible annexation, but benevolent assimilation. With the end of the war the postman’s bag contains fewer black bordered letters, but it bears heavier lot of missives that the postman knows are wedding invi tations, and that he smiles to de liver. To hear Senator Penrose urging retrenchment in governmental ex penses gives one a sensation akin to that of flying wrong side up an airplane. Still, the Senator may prove a wonder in the re trenchment line. For the coward there is neith er glory nor peace. ” We don’t know who said it but in the lan guage of the day, he said a mouth full. Opponents of the league of nations might try the sentiment on their consciences. Each of the nations represent ed at the peace conference seems to to think it expedient at one time or another to arise in the majesty of outraged dignity or something and walkout.

A recent report indicates that overwhelming majority of the 12,000,000 farmers of the coun try favor, not only the idea of i League, but the League Covenant as it now stands. More than two hundred agricultural organizations national, State and local—have adopted resolutions favoring the entrance of the United States into a League. Ninety per cent, of these resolutions were adopted since the publication of the Cove nant, Copies were sent to Pres ident Wilson and to the Senators representing the States in which these organizations are located. The list includes most of the leading national agricultural bodies among them the American Agri cultural Association, Farmers' Ed ucational and Co-operative Union of America, Farmers’ Equity Un ion, Farmers' National Council, Farmers' National Reconstruction Conference, National Board of Farm Organizations, National Reconstruction Conference, Na tional Board of Farm Or ganizations, National Federation of Gleaners, National Grange, and the Non-Partisan League.—The League Bulletin. Have You?—Every ambitious girl has in view some ideal work, and if they do not reach the point of perfection in that work they will be dissatisfied. Do not think be cause they do all the work set be fore them willingly, that they are satisfied. Don’t you know that they are working to be promoted higher? Do not think that a pro fession will make your girl less womanly, no, never. Every wo- manly woman'likes to be indepen dent. Parents, do you realize that your girls will soon be women and have to HI! women’s places? Have you done your duty by trying to fit them for their position? If so. God blets you. IF noi, God help I you (0 do so. 1 « 4t them to do anything had, but it may be on your account they have not. Perhaps if it had not been for your kind care they might have disgraced themselves a long time ago. Therefore do not relax any etfort to keep them where they ought to be. Never mind your own business—that will take care of itself—he is looking over the fence—be suspicious of him; per haps he contemplates stealing, some of these dark nights, there is no knowing what queer fancies he may have got into his head. If you find i>ny symptoms of any one passing out of the path of duty, tell every one else what you see, and be particular and see a great many. It ib j good way lo circu late such things, it may not benefit yourself or any one else particu larly. Do keep something going —silence is a dreadful thing; though it is said there was silence in heav en for the space of half an hour, do not let such a thing occur on earth; it would he too mu:h for this nuind.ine spcrc. It, alter all your watchful carc you cannot see that they have done anything bad, throw out hints that they are no better than ihey should be—that you should not wonder if the people found out what they were after a while, then they may not carry their heads so high. Keep it going, and some may take the hint and begin help it along after awhile—then there will be music and everything will work lik< charm. Follow the above directions and you will be pretty sure to make plenty of mischief. For Jt'ST Oni; Day,—We c,in all find strength to carry our bur den in one day; lo be kind and sweet, and true, and firm, just till night falls. This is all life ever asks of us. To fight one day's temptation, do one day's duties; check angry and fretful humors; hold our tongues in subjection,and, if we can say nothing kind, say nothing, nothing at all, for just one day.

ASK YOUR BANKER A successful business man never hesitates to call on his banker for advice His banker might hesitate to ad- vise the purchase of an automobile because it is a source of expense but when you mention your haul ing needs and the necessity for a truck, you at once enlist a bank er’s interest, T4ie earnings from a good truck will soon pay the original cost of the truck. Your banker does not think of truck buying as an expense. He knows that it is an industrial econ omy—an asset in your business which you will quickly recognize in your bank account. Every progressive bank in the State is glad to lend money to any substantial farmer or business man to buy a truck Your banker will want to know, however, what sort of a truck you intend to buy, what record it has, the kind of service behind it, and the financial responsibility of the manufacturer. The splendid performance of In diana Trucks running in all other sections of the State is not equalled by any other. It is built at Marion, Ind , by the Indiana Truck Cor poration, a concern which enjoys the highest possible financial rating. The State distributor is the Caro- hna .Motor Co., of Statesville,N.C., a firm that is well known in truck circles, and one not unknown to your banker. With such evidence of responji- bihty behind it, the Indiana Farm Truck is commanding very favora ble attention among the farmet^s of this county. Every Indiana Farm Truck car ries the Porta Power Uniu which turns it into a portable power plani. It makes use of every idle second of the iruck more than ever a real investment.
