When Wilson sailed away for
Paris to settle the sffalrs of Uie
world, no doubt he was daziled by a
vision of the splendid role of- the
peacemaker. But the actuality is be
coming more and more clouded. Of
the heads of that conference not one
retains the credit he had when he
went Into it. Orlando Is out of power,
the confidence . Britain reposed in
Lloyd George for the purpose of mak
ing peace Is dwindling rapidly.
Clemenceau must fight to hold . his
place and Wilson does Wilson him
self think now, that he .is the great
figure he was when tlio war closed?

Your Fair, the Columbia County
Fair, is a paying proposition. Not so
much as to gate receipts or as to its
being self-sustaining, but as to its
wholesome influence on the people
of the county, which Is the big assei
of your fair.
Take for instance the stock exhi
bit. Five years ago few thorough
bred cattle were exhibited. There
were comparatively few in the coun
ty. Later there was an exhibit of
thoroughbreds by stock raisers and
dairymen who had seen the light of
1 production of better cattle. What was
the consequence? Other stock rais
ers became interested and now Col
umbia's intelligent farmers are rais
ing and breeding thoroughbred cat
tle. They found out that the good
cow, while more expensive from the
initial cost standpoint, was the
Cheapest cow because the expected re
sults were obtained. The Mist be
lieves that the initial exhibit of
, thoroughbred cattle at the fair Is
partly, if not wholly, responsible for
the interest now taken In raising or
possessing good cattle.
And the ! farm exhibits what
about them? Several years ago
scrubby apples were on exhibit. At
the recent fair, the specimens of
fruit were the finest and most perfect
yet shown. All farm products were
par excellent, and any resident of
the county felt proud of the splendid
exhibits. The annual county fair
demonstrates to the "doubting
Thomas" that things can be done and
that diversified and Intelligent farm
ing pays. The exhibits Instruct and
educate him and he leaves the fair
grounds with a resolve to have a good
exhibit at the fair next year. When
he makes this resolve and carries it
out, Columbia county is further de
veloped. Yes. the fair pays, and will
continue to pay just as long as peo
ple interested in Columbia county are
interested in the development of the
On June 14, 1917, President Wil
son said, "It Is plain enough how we
were forced Into the war. The extra
ordinary insults and aggression of
the Rnierial eovernment left in no
( self respecting choice but to take up
arms in aerense of our rights as a
free people." In his speech in Port
land recently, the president said we
went into the war to save the world,
or something to that effect. The
president makes so many speeches
and so many different statements
that it is impossible for htm to al
ways give the same reasons for war
or peace or the League of Nations.
George Hotchiss Street was on the

He was billed to make an address.

to make an address. Several hundred
people were in the auditorium when
George began his address. When he
