Should Keep Out C
Sacrifice of AI
Confidential Address at Gri

Principle of Human Lit
Washington, Feb. 27.?President t'vYil\
son told members and guests at a Gridi
iron clul) dinner last night that America
I ought to keep out of the European war
A "at the sacrifice of everything except
A this single tiling upon which her character
and her history are founded?her
sense of humanity and justice."
The address was confidential, since
the speeches at the dinners of the Gridiron
club, composed of newspaper cor
respondents, are not reported. It was
inade public tonight, however, with the
consent of the president and the club,
because many of those who heard it
urged that it should go to the country.
The president spoke of the nation's
affairs with unusual gravity. His hearers,
including several hundrd members
of congress, government officials, business
men and correspondents, were
brought to their feet cheering when he
concluded with these words:
"I would be just as much ashamed to
be rash as I would to be a coward. Valor
is self-respecting. Valor is circumspect.
Valor strikes when it is right to

In his address he said:
SILENT UNLESS SOMETHING IS
"I have very little to say tonight except
to express my warm appreciation
of the invariable courtesy of this club
and of the reception you have so gen
erouslv accorded me. I find that I am
seldom tempted to sy anything nowadays
unless somebody starts something
and tonight nobody has started anything.
"Your talk. Mr. Toastmaster, lias been
a great deal about candidacy for the
presidency. It is not a new feeling on
my part, but one which I entertain with
a greater intensity .than formerly, that
a man who seeks the presidency of the
United States for anything that it will
bring him is an audacious fool. The responsibilities
of the ofFce ought to sober
a. man even before he approaches it.
One of the difficulties of the office seltlom
appreciated, I dare say. is that it is
verv difficult to think while so manv
people are talking; particularly while
so many people are talking in a way that
obscures counsel and is entirely off the
PRINCIPLE OF LIBERTY AND
"The Doint in national affairs, eren
tlemen, never lies along the lines of expediency.
It always tests in the field
of principle. The United 'States was not
founded upon any principle of expediency;
it was founded upon a profound
principle of human liberty and of humanity.
and whenever it bases its policy
upon any other foundations than those
it builds on the sand and not upon solid
rock. It seems to me that the most enlightening
thing a man can do is suggested
by somethHT which the vice president
said tonight He complained that
he found men who, when their attention
was called to the signs of spring,
clid not see the blue heaven, did not see
the movement of tree clouds, did not
think of the great spaces of the quiet
continent, but thought only of some immediate
and pressing piece of business.
"It seems to me that if vou do not
think of the things that lie beyond and
away from and disconnected from this
scene in which we attempt to think and
conclude you will inevitably be led
astray. I would a great deal rather
k?ow what they are talking about
around quiet firesides all over this country
than what they are talking about in

INDICATE CHANGE OF SE\TIMENT
FOR LAW ENFORCEMENT
Columbia, Feb. 28.?That the sentiment
of the people of the State has undergone
a great change in favor of the
^ntorcement or law is clearly Shown by
an examination of the reports of the
solicitors, as contained in the report of
the attorney general to the general assembly.
During 1914. 2,59 r cases were reported.
Of this number there was a total
of 1.634 convictions, or 63 per cent. During
1915 a total of 3,210 cases were reported,
with 2.121 convictions, or 66 per
cent. The increase in cases brought to
trial in 1915 over 1914 is 619, or 24 per
cent. This increase in the number o?
cases brought to trial is accounted for

| "I would a great deal rather know '
what the men on the trains and by the j
wayside and in the shops and on thi i
; farms are thinking about and yearning '
for than hear any of the vociferou:*
proclamations of policy which it is s<j
easy to hear and so easy to read by j
I picking up any scraps of printed paper, j
i There is only one way to hear these j
| things, and that is constantly to go j
; back to the fountains of American i
j "Senator Harding was saying just
! now that we ought to try when we are
a hundred million strong to act in the
I same simplicity of principle that our
i forefathers acted in when we were 3>~
| 000,000 strong. I heard somebody say
I that the present population of the United
! States is 103.000,000. If there are 3.-j
; 000,000 thinking the same thing that that
I 3,000.000 thought, the 100,000.000 would
[ be saved for an illustrous future. They
were ready to stake everything for an
idea, and that idea was not expediency,
l but iustice. And the infinite difficulty |
of public affairs, gentlemen, is to square
i the things you do by the not simple, hut
complicated, standards of justice. Justice
has nothing to do with any
temporary standard whatever. It is
roited and groundel in the fundamental
instincts of humanity.
SHOULD KEEP OUT OF WAR.
"America ought to keep out of this
| war. She ought to keep out of this war
J at the sacrifice of everything except
this single thing upon which her character
and history are founded, her sense
of humanity and justice. If she sacrifices
that, she has ceased to be America
: she has ceased to entertain and to
love the traditions which have made us
proud to be Americans, and when we go
1 about seeking safety at the expense of
i humanity, then I for one will believe
that I have been mistaken in what I
have conceived to be the spirit of
American history. ,
"You never can tell your direction
except by long measurements. You
cannot establish a line by two posts;
you have got to have three at least to
know whether they are straight with
| anything, and the longer your line the
more certain your measurement. There
is only one way in which to determine
how the future of the United States
ic o-nincr tr> hp nroiertfrl and that is bv
I t J -
looking back and seeing which way the
lines ran which led up to the present
moment of power and of opportunity.
'.AMERICAN ROLL OF HONOR.
The American roll of honor, the president
said, consists only of the names
of men who have "squared their conduct
by ideals of duty."
"And I wish," he added, "that whenever
an impulse to settle a thing some
short ways tempts us we might close
the door and take down some old stories
of what American idealists and statesmen
did in the past and not let any counsel
in that does not sound in the auI
thentic voice of American tradition.
I Then we shall be certain what the lines
[ of the future are because we shall know
we are steering by the lines of the past.
We shall know that no temporary convenience.
no temporary expediency, will
j lead us either to be rash or to be cow!
ardly. I would be just as much
I ashamed to be rash as I would to be
; a coward. Valor is self-respecting. Valor
j is circumspect. Valor strikes only when
[ it is right to strike. Valor withholds
; itself from all small implications and

dred pounds of fertilizer. Or if they
read the guarantee and see the per cent, j
of nitrogen it contains, many do not |
know what it means. They would not
buy two pigs and pay $20 for them
when they could buy three pigs of the
same size and quality for considerably
less than $30; but they will pay $20 for
a fertilizer when they could buy one
containing a half more plant foods for I
much less than $30. Many are confused
because they cannot understand why
they should buy a ton of 2-8-2 fertilizer
for instance, and only get 240 pounds of
plant foods. They know that when
they buy a pig that weighs 200 pounds
they do not get 200 pounds of meat
they can eat. L'hey cannot eat the bones,
hair and many other parts which go to
make up the 200 pounds of the pig
when alive. We know we cannot get
good lean pork to eat without taking
the parts which cannot be eaten, because
pigs do not grow that way. Likewise
we cannot buy nitrogen, phosphoric acid
and potash without taking along with
t-hes plant foods other materiale that are
useless. The fault is no more in the
fertilizer manufacturer than in the man
who sells the live pig. It is simply
that nitrogen, phosphoric acid and potash
do not exist in salable form in the
pure state, and therefore cannot be
bought without buying the useless materials
mixed with them. When fillers
are used it is not usually the fault of
the manufacturer, but because the buyers
demand a low grade, cheap product.
That is, they are not willing to buy
three pigs for $26, but insist on ^ying
two pigs, instead, for $20.

obtain and study their publications.

HIGH SCHOOL SUSPENDS
EXERCISES FOR TWO WEEKS
On account of three cases of scarlet
fever among the children of the high
school the board of health on Thursday
morning orderd that the school suspend
for two weeks. And the board requests
that the parents of the children
who have been in the school keep the
children at home so as to prevent the

that the first case devloped about a
week ago, but the board of health did
not know of it until Thursday, though
the health officer had the case quaran
