and the KaiBer 1b wiring to the Presi
dent of the United States that he will
accept an honorable peace, he has his
men on high seas sinking ships, mur
dering men, wemen and-chlldren. No
mun can be made to believe that Ger
many wants an honorable peace so
report may cme out that the Kaiser
has abdicated but the American sol
dier has to know for himself.
It may be one, two, or three years
before the Khaki boys eai a Christmas
dinner at home (but I think one will
be the limit) with their friends but
every one is willing to remain In or

Germany has been flirting for many
years, is still flirting with Japan and
probably others, but when the Khaki
boys be^n to sing " where do wc go
from here, boys?" on the other side
of the Rhine there will be uo more
flirting with the Kaiser, and he cannot
look back and say "I have fought a
good fight." but he can say. "i have
r wished my course."
Message from London. Oct. 14th,
reads: No tmeporary armistice ,nor
i'.ry armistice at nil. unless accompan
ied by Germany's unconditional sur
render. This is the dominant note
from the commeuts of Wilson and Lan
sing. The leaders of all peace loving
people, can see in Germany's endeav
ors to open peace negotiations merely
an attempt to avoid disaster and to
save her military reputations.
Wilson understands the people "with
whom he is dealing. Germany is try
ing to plead now that the Allied lead
orrf and Wilson does not understand
them In their conditions, but Wilson
says you do not want to be under
stood when you are pleading with me
for peace and that you hare war
enough, then in, the meantime compel
your men, against thtfir will, to de
stroy cargo, burn homes, sink ships,
I and murder innocent women and chil

buildings ad hospitals the like of whicli
' no other nation ever did before in

some hiding place and then with a cr>

til they are satisfied of war, then lei
every Khaki boy have ttvree more
rounds each. Then the boys will beglt
to sing "pack up your troubles ir

It is with much satisfactioik that we are able to announEe
to you that the health authorities of the the State have deemed
the influenza situation sufficiently decreasing and under control
to.allow the tobacco markets to rasume their resular sales on
Monday, November 11, 1918. Therefore on that date I will re
open the Union Warehouse for youi accommodation and hope
to have the pleasure of selling a load'of tobacco for you. When
we closed clown for the epidemic of influenza, the prices were
good, some of which we give below.
Baker and Hall, 592 lbs. $265.74, average $44.88.

market is not too badly crowded at once. Again we will call
your attention to the fact that you can't afford to sell your to
hacco at home, the priees are so high and advancing so fast that
yon can't help but lose. Strip it and bring it to us. We have
