to crder their groceries. requiring

anything harsh about these people
Nvho delay in such matters, for we
know it is thotightlessless lore thn1
anything else, but we do remind the
good house-wives that the grocery
clerks like to have the cool evenings
off as well as anybody else and we
suggest that their plea be ileeded.

This is the last week of the cotton
marketing campaign. A large number
of Latirens farmers have failed to join
the association. With such men

Gray, .the You ngs and Workmans, of
Clinton, Sen. C, odwin, lle resentative
Nance, W. L. Gray, 1.. P. .Minter and
others of'such calibre on the list, we
believe that the contract warrants the
careful study of every farmer in the
county. This is 'the last week. If

OUT1,AWING OF W.UtR
Judge Florence E. Allen of Cleveland
Would PuniSh its Crime.
Hot Springs, Ark., April 23.-A world f
law making war a crime and providing
suitable punishment for It was advo
cated today by Judge Florence 'l-. Allen
of Cleveland in all address before the
national convention of the Young
Women's Chistian association, in
which she declared that "America
should call a meeting of the world for
the express pur-pose of outlawing war."
"Whlen there is no law against aar
we can not even begin to enforce the'
gr'eatest ,rule of' equtity between na
tions, tile lawv of tile sacredness of
life," saidl Judge Allen, who was the]
first woman judge of a common pleas
cou1rt in the United States..
"Those who rely completely uPonl a
worldl eourt for achilevinlg peace forget
that stuch a court can not a s~pwar
until there is a lai.v fr tNr
It Is so in our ordinary edkr t.' If I
have before me the most hettni1ur
derer, I can not try him, m'deh l'ess
sentence him, unless there is a law
defining and sproviding for the punish
ment of the murdler. "Any fighlting,
'unless In self-defense between1 indi
viduals is criminal; any killing unfless
in self-defense, is mutrder. We have
to make the world agr'ee that Inter
national fighting, unless In .self-de
fense, Is criminal -and Is murder."
Judge Allen would ada'pt the modern
code from the ancient and . make
"Thou shalt not war" the basic prin
ciple of the International law. She I
exhorted American women to take adl
vantage of the vote for not only local
and national, but world good.
"Shall we American women, Invest
ed Iwithl new 'power In government, be
inaticulate and nervless?" she asked.
"Now is tile crutilal time, and1 If the
peoples of the wVC-lds fr --....-..'
opportunilty, we shall stagger' on, phys
Ically -andi moral cri-pples, to the sering
of new str'ifes. W: c: -- - '-'r
liability. We have a . ..
outselves articulate, of demanding
thlat the 'peace on earth' spiritenr
into world 'politics."ene
Judge Allen advised subordinating
local affairs to International' questionsI
stating that it was "more vit-al to any
one citign to know who is secretary.
of state than who Is mayor of one's
own tervn or governor of One's state."
"We have to kn w what the govern
ment Is doing an demand that right
be done," she con tnoted. "But most of
all we must conc ntr'ate intelligently
for the abolition of war as a means of
settling international disputes. We1

Perhaps they had Zeke's address in
letters up in the garret, maybe a chest
full of 'em, but then it was easier to
let Ben hunt Zeke. Today people are
addressing letters to John Smith, New

Uncle Sam can locate him, which Is
just as Incomplete as was Zeke's ad
