of nations. We also believe that na
tions, like individuals, must be chas
tized, if they are to be kept in the
straight and narrow path, and we
further believe that the oft-quoted
statement "the way of the transgres
sor is hard, " applies to nations as well
as individuals. Believing these things,
we are constrained to believe that there
is a great unseen purpose back of this
war. Countless men, posing as seers,
endeavor in their small way to discern
or divine the why and wherefore of
this world-wide war, and some go so
so far as to try to stop it. One might
as wei! attempt to dam Niagara with
a stick of chewing gum as to try to
bring about a censsation of hostilities
before the end for which it was ordered
is accomplished. Therefore, abortive
efforts along the line of premature
peace proposals should cease." The fol
lowing from the Spartanburg Journal
is apropos in this connection:
"Some time ago the statement \V5s
made that Pope Benedict is considering
leaving Rome and Italy on a peace
mission and that he is confident he can
bring about some results. This report
has been generally credited in some
quarters and many think that the at
tempt will be made but most of these
are convinced that any second peace
offer the Pope might make would be
favorable to the central powers.
"In view of the fac? that the Pope's first
peace offer was such a fiasco, we think
that he might do well to devote his ef
forts to some other work. The Pope
will never be able to bring aboutpeace
and no other one living man will ever
)e able to do it. A world war can
hardly be ended by one man's words,
no matter what those words may be."
Although this war is unspeakably
horrible in its every phase, yet who
would have it close with the Belgians
and Serbians enslaved? Although the
destruction of life and property is im
measurable, yet who would have the
dove of peace again hover over Europe
before the Prussian tyrant is brought
to his knees? No-a thousand times,
no. There can be no peace until the
great purpose of the God of Battle is
accomplished, and individuals here and
there over the world had might as well
be hands oil". Peace will come in its
A Vicious Rvmor.
"Amont: the many absurd and
vicious rumors put into circulation
these days, probably through pro

United States proposes to confiscate
money on deposit in banks. Thc
absurdity of the statement is obvious
on its face. These rumors arc
wholly without foundation and pro
bably circulated for an evil purpose

"Tanlac proved a fine stomach
medicine for me, and I have told
quite a few people who complained
of stomach trouble to take it," said
Mrs, E. D. Duckworth, of Pelzer,
S. Oj in a statement endorsing
Tanlac. I suffered fror? iru??gtst?on
for many years-really ever since I
was a child-and I could not eat a
general diet, but I had to bo very
careful of what I did eat. I really
never did get hungry, either.
"The Tanlac certainly helped my
indigestion and soon had got
ten my stomach in a great deal bet
ter condition, and that I ate more
and soon I was getting hungry. It
made a quicK improvement in my
condition, too. I am g'ad to recom
mend Tanlac for troubles like those
I took Tanlac for."

Thing Vitona Is.
"For many years I have wonder

11 could sit down to a meal and eat
what I wanted, and all I wanted,"
said Mrs. W. L. Garvin, wife of a
prominent business man of 4Uth
East Hunter Street, Atlanta, Ga.
"No matter how careful I was
about dieting myself, just as soon as
I finished eating I was all upset and
sick, nothing seemed to agree with

'my awful run-down condition was
due to the fact that for many years
I had suffered something awful from
serious kidney trouble; then for
weeks I would be tortured with In

was so run-down and generally 'done
up' that I just about had nervous

can eat anything in the world that
my appetite calls for, and that is
just about everything on the menu
since I began taking Vitona. All
tho?e awful pains in my back and

"I don't know what it is to have
trouble with my kidneys any more.

When a representative of Vitona
asked Mrs. Garvin for a statement

I did, I will gladly tell them what
