Are you energetic? Are you
patriotic? Have you the wel

If so, here is an opportunity for
you to do something for your
self and your neighbors.
The Clarion wants to put be
fore its readers a paper that is

sell to you-that commodity con
sists in news. In its mission as
a news-gatherer The Clarion
strives be absolutely impar

But, in order to get out a big
ger, better newspaper we need
the co-operation of our readers
in every section of the parish.
We want you to send us local
news and personals-something
that will help to keep your town
or your village before the eyes
of the thousands of people who
eagerly look forward to receiving

A good deal of adverse com
mentary has been evoked on the
~rt of Republican, Progressive
and half-baked Democratic pa.
pers at the Columbian treaty.
We admit the Columbians 4rove
a hard bargain, but the penalty
for the infraction of the political
as of the moral law is justly fol
lowed by the punishment.
Uncle Sam, the author, promul
gator and keeper of the Monroe
Doctrine, by virtue of that doe
,tr e, has been placed in the po
sition of locus parentis of the
Western Hemisphere. Now,
Uncle Sam wanted the strip of
territory known as the Canal
Zone. The political drafters of
Columbia, knowing that the un
speakable Teddy, through trans
continental railroad influences, I
would never agree to the Nicar
auguan route, the sanest, health
iest and best of the trans-Isth
mian routes, saw their opportu
nity and kept raising their price. 1
Teddy, who, it will be remem-I E
bored, with the musk of Booker
T. still clingirg to his right arm, l
branded the South's greatest
statesman as a traitor because C
he led the constitutional rights 1
of the South to secede. Yet,
hardly was the ink dry on his in- i
famous utterances when he a
aided and abetted Panamians in a
their revolt against their mother
country at a time when we were
at perfect peace with that coun
try, and it is known to all men h
that, without the influence of i
our government, the Columbians ei
would have squelched the seces
sionists. The course of the
United States still more embit- I
tered the entire Latin-America
against us, and jeopardized the
spirit and usefulness of the Mon
roe Doctrine, already badly jar
red by our colonial policy in the
Philippines; it was, therefore,
meet and proper that the mo
ment that Democracy came into
power they should make an earn
eut effort to win back the friend
sidp of Columbia and allay the
hatred and suspicion which our
aets evoked in all of South
and Central America; the price
may be high, but in the end it
wilt be cheap, measured by ma
t;ite Interests. In a moral sense p
we had to pay the penalty to R
ieswve our reputation for hon- w
4wail. and fair dealing. M

One of the first
things you will
hear about the
is that the operators like it. The MONARCH operators are always i:s
strongest advocates. Of course, there is a reason. The mainreason
is the lightness of the MONARCH Touch.' But there is more even
than this to the touch of the MONARCH. The Monarch Touch can be
instantly adjiested to t4 e touch of any operator." And any operator can
make this adjustment-simply by the turning of one screw.
Think of that! The exact touch that y;u: prefer on a typewriter,
the exact touch that suits you best, the exact touch that enables you I
to do the most and best work-you can get i: ac; instant. Naturally,
the operator of any other machine can break in on th'e MONARCH
instantly. And once they know it, the MONARCH is always the
machine they want.
No wonder the operators,like the MONARCH. And, of course,
the employer gets the benefit. .For the satisfaction of the operator
is bound to mean better work and more of it.
