other effort to bring about peace in
the Ii(listry will be made.
B3oth sides accepted the Invitation.

Dare to Turn Back.
It ofteni requilres courage to turn back
when we ha.ive taloi a wrong step,
but it is enir to turn back after the
first step than after the second or
third, and much safer and pleasanter.
