"Peace, peace, there is no peace"

' President Wilson is sick, Lloyd

if the entire world is becoming so.
The bickerines and secrecv of the
peace conference going on in Paris

- The , Philippine Islands are now
v asking Uncle Sam for independence.
Seems to us that they have had in
dependence ever since the United
States liberated them of Spanish rule.
But lots of people never know when
they are well off.
If the peace conference in Paris
don't hurry up and. agree on some
kind of peace terms .it may have to
make a hurried exit to keep from be
ing captured by the Bolshevki. That
seems to be growing faster than any
thing else just now.
With Marse Henry Watterson, Joe
Bailey , and a few other Democrats
jumping all over Woodrow; with
Taft on one side, Lodge and Root on
another, and Borah and Sherman still
on another in the Republican party,
things are looking up in a political
way, and the campaign of 1920
promises to be a "humdinger."
Frank W. Woolworth, proprietor
of a great chain of five and ten cent
stores - is dead. He started in busi
ness in Utica, N. Y., forty years ago,
on a capital of $50.00, and died worth
$8,000,000,000. We know of some
others who started" about the same
time worth thousands of dollars that
could not now cash in-' for the $50.00.

A bill to allow women to sit in the
French chamber of deputies has been
defeated by that : body. To bad.
Seems to us after all that the women
of the world . have just passed
through, and the magnificent spirit
displayed and the many hardships
endured without a murmur, during
the great world war, that the women
are entitled to an equality - in all
things with men. They have certain

not already theirs. -
It is rumored that Governor Allen,
of Kansas, wants the cotton growers
stopped from holding cotton fori bet
ter prices. Don't worry, Governor,
these fellows have been holding cot
ton for better prices for many
months, and the price has steadily de
clined. And they;, are the same fel
lows, who wanted a price limit set on
Kansas wheat, but mercy how; they
did howl when the Kansas , wheat
grower wanted ' a prjee limit set . on
cotton. Result : . the . Kansas wheat
erower will receive $2.16 per bushel

Mr. Burleson has raised telegraph
rates about twenty per cent. Thus
we have another example of the great
benefits to be derived from govern
ment ownership. The railroads have
cost the' people of the United State
over two hundred millions of dollars
under government control. It is
evident ' that .' government control
comes entirely 4too high to suit the
average American, and we believe
that at least seventy-five per cent of
the people of the rural communities
are opposed to the government, fur

AWES MARi.. WITH MOTOR
Circus Performer Acting as Instruc
tor Makes Tricks Look Simple.
Many a marine rookie has stripped
his gears trying to do "setting up" ex
ercises under an instructor who was
formerly a professional contortionist.
Sergeant Joe Mader, who is Instruc
tor and motor vehicle expert of the
Third company of the signal battalion
of marines at Philadelphia, vwas out
on the parade grounds recently giving
a raw class a few tips on now to ride
a motorcycle. For a while he content
ed himself with riding across the area
with his machine listing at an angle
of 50 degrees. Then he raised the
front wheel off the ground and rode
that way. Turning his machine with
an acuteness that skidded hjni allthe
way around he started on the return
trip. As he approached the awe
stricken class he stood up on the seat
of the motorcycle and, waving his
arms In the semaphore code, signaled
"That's all there is to it." .
But later they found out that he
used to ride around the walls of a
tank in a circus sideshow.
