In home, in xtral, and Unlit
What means this celibration
Joined in by great mill smnU?
mil all this bunting floating
And uhy these banners gay?
What arc these things denoting?
It's I nde pendeiiee Day.
What menus the gay bells ringing?
Why d our hunts rejoice?
What means the children's singing,
Each one n ith heart and voice?
Win all this glorious spouting
And. nil litis grand display.'
Why arc the people shouting,
Hurrah! Hurrah! Hurrah!
Wlmt mean the liorsis' praiwing
With riders bold astride f
While urchins, smiling, glauci.ig
(!o tripping 'tony beside?
This yearly contribution,
Which ne'er shall knoir decay,
Tells of the I'erol ut ion
It's I ndepi iideiice Day.
Fraternal thonyhts engender
A country's lore that sticks,
That's iihy ire all remember
The War of 'ScrentySi.r."
And so ire come displaying
(hir national lore this ivay,
The Slurs and SI ripen are tuiyiugn
"It's Independence Day."
Frank It. Williams, in Orit.
JLOYD (iEOUCE, in a recent speech, de
clared: "(ireat Hritain, having mobilized
Noun-tiling like i,u0.000 men for war, was
entitled to have something to say wheu peace
was established. Neither Britain nor the
world is yet out of danger."
The world will allow Britain's right to
be heard ; but it also recognizes the fac
that other nations participated in the af
fair and have rights -that should be consid
ered. The United States mobilized a great
army and furnished money and food as wel
as the nurses and medicine, and it too should
have a voice as well as Britain; but we do
not care to speak in tones so loud as to
drown every other nation. We want a square
deal in every conference where we are con
cerned, and it is our desire, as a nation,
that every oilier nation and people upon the
face of the earth shall enjoy the liberties of.
constitutional government and the advan
tages of the highest possible civilifation ; and
the United States will lend its aid to any
and all progressive movements; but we must
be assured of the honest of purpose in every
such project, it u.l that they be not undertak
en for the purpose of obtaining political or
commercial supremacy by any nations that
may be concerned.
There are hundreds of millions of people
still in deep savagery, and other hundreds of
millions in all stages of evolution; from the
savage to the civilized and highly educated
types that rule the world.
Even the savage welcomes the help of
those who would assist him to rise out of
his ignorance and misery, provided that aid
conies willi an honesty of purpose. But when
the savage, or any other, semi barbarous or
emjized. race realizes Ihat the objective is
predatory, and that their so-called aid is
given with a view of exploitation they na
turally become suspicious, rebellous. and re
vengeful. Tin' nations of Europe, in holding the
leash of bondage over weaker peoples or the
savage or semi savage races of Africa and
Asia are sowing seeds of discord. That pol
icy means nothing less than jealousies among
themselves the nieanace of war as long us
that system shall last.
The greed of Europe for the oil, gold,
silver, diamonds, metals, minerals, timber
and other natural resources of certain coun
tries, as well as a pre emptory right of Kpoil
ation is a direct cause of much of the world's
misery, ami the war clouds will gather and
cast their shadows until all nations agree
to recognize and establish an international
constitution based upon the fundamental
principles of liberty and justice.
We've also reached a point in history
where iliere isn't as much money in raising
healthy hogs as there is in running "blind"
It used to be wine, women and song
that made the young men leave home. Now
its white male. Mapper and jazz.
It begins to look as if the only one that
can make both ends meet is the fishing worm.
AM Eli WAX LOYALTY
Y'' rarely hear an American speaking dis
paragingly of his country, lie is the
most loyal man in the world. America is
good enough for him, and regardless of what
may be said of the other countries, with
him it is America, the beautiful and the
free, lie loves every features of its diver
sified topography and its cosmopolitan peo
ple. America is his home land and he will
stand up for it against any and all malign
ers, and woe be it to the man who speaks
with disrespect for the United States or the
flag. Captious foreigners who endeavor to be
little the United States' are apt to be hand
The American in Europe lauds his
country to the skies, and well lie may for
it is the grandest country on earth and the
savior of the world. It was America that
turned the tide of battle and sent the Ger
man invaders of Sunny France on the hot
foot for the fatherland. The American sol
dier won a reputation in Europe that is
worth more to this country than a great
navy or a vast standing army. Ue proved to
t he nations of Europe that he could fight
fearlessly and furiously, regardless of the
fact that America has no great standing
army of well drilled troops, lie proved that
the valor of the American soldier offset
years of training. He proved his worth at
Chateau Thierry, the Argoiine and at St.
Mihicl, the latter being considered impreg
nable, yet. Hie American soldiers went thru
the (iernian defenses like a cyclone in a Tex
as town. Europe was filled with surprise
and awe at the feat; but it was quick work.
Uuce the American legions received the order
to go forward they never turned back, and
the world war was won thru the help of
America at a time when all hope seemed
lost. The American soldier as simply doing
his duty, and in that he takes a just pride.
He is full of valor iu whatever he undertakes,
lie loves America and his flag, and the
European who takes a contrary view and
expresses himself in words will find him
self opposed with a vehemence that means
retraction or trouble.
Of such is lite spirit of America, and
thus it manifests itself in the presence of
Not only are Americans loyal to their
country, but to their state, and their city.
The American may travel the country over.
He will be pleased and entertained with all
he sees. He may settle in a state far remov
ed from his native abode; he may become
a resident for years, but the memory and
the love for the home land never dies, and
whatever may be great iu his new location
there are things equally as great in his na
No good American runs down his home
town, his state or his nation. He is proud
of it all and the achievements of its people.
The old fashioned night shirt is said to
be coining back. Now if a man wants to make
a fortune lei him invent some way to keep
it from rolling up under the arms.
If the bootlegging business .is good to
day it is a sure sigij the undertaking busi
ness will flourish tomorrow.
Of course the modern girl' knows more
than her mother, but it sort of gets on our
nerves to hear her tell her mother so.

THE CHOICE OF THE PICK
How Fast Can
You Pump Gas ?
yilEN a motorist stops for gasoline he usu
ally wants it in a hurry. If you have a
Milwaukee you can give him fifteen gallons
a minute. This is just one of the handy feat
ures of the Milwaukee. There is, for instance,
a little valve that drains the hose when the
pumping stops and saves you much waste.
If you want the gasoline business in your
district get a Milwaukee.
