THE TRUTH IDEALIZED.
Woodrow Wilson recently said: “The
only thing that ever set any man free,
the only thing that ever set any nation
free, is the truth. A man that is afraid
of the truth is afraid of life. A man who
does not love the truth is in the way of
decay and of failure. I have such an
inveterate confidence in the ultimate
triumph of the truth that I feel, with old
Dr. Oliver Wendell Holmes, that the
truth is no invalid and you need not mind
how roughly you handle her. She has
got a splendid constitution and she will
survive every trial and every labor.”
Just to show how roughly our Presi
dent can handle the truth, we modestly as
sert that every well informed reader of the
news of the day knows that President Wil
son has been doing everything in his power
to muzzle the press. The espionage bill,
so-called, was an administration measure.
In this bill was a drastic censorship clause
which if passed would enable the Presi
dent to keep the people in ignorance of
what was going on either in preparedness
or in war How does the President ex
pect the truth to “set any nation free”
if that nation is not allowed to know
what the truth is. “Consistency, thou
art a jewel.” Woodrow Wilson when he
theorises is as far'removed from President
Wilson when he practices as Jerusalem is
from Constantinople. We believe, how
ever, that President Wilson is a good man.
We believe he is an able man earnestly
endeavoring to carry this country safely
through the present crisis. We know
what a tremendous responsibility he is
carrying for himself and for us. We
know also how heavily he is handicapped
by politicians, obstructionists, grafters
and incompetents. But the public through
the press, is demanding that the adminis
tration should be consistent with the high
ideals of the President. The public
clamors for more soundness and less
sound; for more achieved results and less
rhetoric; for more decisive action and less
vacillation; for the control of speculation,
for the punishment of grafters, and for
the removal of incompetents, whether in
the cabinet or elsewhere.
ADVERTISING.
No retail merchant who is a “live wire”
will venture to assert that advertising
does not pay. Large business houses like
Hovey’s, Filene’s and Houghton & Dut
ton’s are persistent advertisers because
results have proved to them that money
put out for advertising is money profit
ably expended. That advertising is pro
fitable only to large businesses cannot be
maintained because we know of scores of
small businesses which would not live
six months if the advertisements disap
peared from the newspapers. There have
been hundreds of businesses which never
could have begun their short lives if it
were not for advertising. But in order to
be profitable it must be done sensibly,
persistently and well. Truthfulness is
the all important element in an advertise
ment. If a merchant attempts to de
ceive the public he will very soon be pun
ished by a loss of customers. We have
personal knowledge of a store which has
advertised three separate closing out sales
within one year. The last one is now go
ing on but sales are slow, so slow that
only one clerk is needed and he is not a
very busy man. We know of another
dealer who started about three years ago
in a small way. He advertised regularly
in the local papers. He put the goods be
hind the advertisements. Gradually-peo
ple found that his advertisements meant
what they said. He prospered and has
built up a thriving business. Honest ad
vertising did the work, and without it he
could never have attracted customers.

HOOD’S SARSAPARILLA
AND PEPTIROri PILLS
Conditions that are both scrofulous
and anemic are very common. Many
persons whose faces are “broken
out, ’ ’ cheeks are pale, and nerves are
weak, suffer from them.
There is an effective, economical
remedy in the combination of Hood's
Sarsaparilla and Peptiron Pills, one
taken before eating, the other aft."
In these medicines taken in V.
way the best substances for the bloua
and nerves are brought together.
But his success was not entirely due to
the truthfulness of the advertisements.
He put his best thought into their prepara
tion. They not only read well but they
looked well. Good advertising has be
come an art, and good, Hbnest, timely
advertising will promote business.
RECOGNITION.
Not long ago the writer read in a New
England paper that a farmer subscriber
had laid an egg on the editor’s desk. It
was an egg of prodigious size, but we have
forgotten its dimensions. For more than
fifty years we have from time to time
been reading of similar instances when
people had used the editor’s desk as a nest
where big eggs were deposited. We have
wondered whether such bestowal of a big
egg was a form of public recognition of
an editor. We have also wondered if an
application for admission to the Maine
Press Association could be received unless
the applicant had received a big egg.
Well, what we started to say was this:
Mr. A. K. Wood of this city has present
ed us with an egg. It was a good egg.
We know' because it has been cooked and
eaten. The egg weighed more than three
quarters of a pound. To be exact about it
the egg weighed thirteen and one half
ounces. An old goose laid this egg in her
nest. Mr. Wood brought the egg to us in
a basket.
MEXICAN LABORERS.
It is proposed to employ large numbers
of Mexicans to work on the farms in our
southwestern States. There is a federal
law against importing foreign labor. But
labor is needed in several of these States
and if there are any Mexicans who are
willing to work there ought to be some
way found to give them an opportunity.
We could give them plenty of good food
and with plenty of cold water and plenty
of work they could sweat the pulque out
of their systems. Then, after the har
vest was over, we should be able to send
to their homes a large number of vastly
improved Mexican citizens.
The price of wheat continues to "drop
as it has been steadily doing since specu
lation was put under the ban.—Portland
Press.
Last Friday wheat was quoted at $1.82
for September delivery. As we predicted
two weeks ago the. dealing in “futures”
is going right along. The **jan” has re
duced the price of wheat about $1.00 a
bushel, but has not put a stop to specula
tion. The country will not be satisfied
with a “ban.” Gambling in a food pro
duct which is daily used in every fam
ily in the United States must be stopped.
Congress has stricken the censorship
clause from the espionage bill, but the
censors on the other side of the Atlantic
are working full time, and the War and
the Navy departments here at home will
do their bit. We must content ourselves
with such war news as is handed out to
us, and make the best guess we can as to
what news the censors have seen fit to
withhold.
Some people are serioulsy advising that
Uncle Sam should loan a large sum of
money to Mexico. The border line be
tween the U. S. and Mexico is 1200 miles
long. At a large expense we are patrol
ling that border to prevent the Mexicans
from stealing our portable property, burn
ing our towns and murdering our citizens.
What our little sister republic should
have is not candy but a spanking.
GOETHALS MAN OF THE HOUR.
Three million tons of steel steamships
in a year and a half is the pledge which
General Goethals has made to the com
mittee of Congress if the requisite money
and authority are guaranteed. This is an
ambitious program, but the General is a
man who does things, and with proper
co-operation he can put it through. He
has won the support of the American
Iron and Steel Institute, led by Judge El
bert H. Gary, chairman of the United
States Steel Corporation.
General Goethals’ speech before the
Institute showed clearly that he does not
look with favor on a large fleet of wooden
ships—as, indeed, nobody would if a re
quisite supply of steel tonnage were forth
coming. Until the steel manufacturers
were appealed to, the quick construction
of 3,000,000, or any considerable amount,
of steel shipping was impracticable, be
cause the yards now working were unable
to secure prompt delivery of materials for
vessels already under control. It was
this question of materials and also the
fact that present shipbuilding facilities
were overtaked that led the United States
Shipping Board to consider wood con
struction There need be no cont.roversv
between the advocates of steel and advo
cates of wood. The superiority of the
former, if it can be had, will be univer
sally acknowledged. And, on the other
hand, even 3,000,000 tons of additional
steel shipping will not be enough; all the
wooden vessels that can be had will be
needed also to break the German subma
rine blockade, that deadly menace to
Britain, France and Italy.
It is of the utmost importance that
President Farrell of the Steel Corporation
has pledged himself and all the powerful
resources at his command to support Gen
eral Goethals’ program. All the other
steel manufacturers of the country will
follow the lead of this great corporation.
The plan of General Goethals involves
not only the supplying of materials in
abundance, but a prompt and great ex
tension of the shipbuilding equipment of
the United States. Not unless additional
yards are immediately created can a pro
gram of 3,000,000 tons of steel shipping
in eighteen months be fulfilled. It is
fortunate indeed for America that a man
with the record of achievement of the
famous builder of the Panama Canal is at
the head of the new ship construction
movement. Steel ships, as The Marine
Journal has often said, are the best ships
for the permanent welfare of the Ameri
can merchant marine. But there should
be no abandonment of the building of
wooden vessels already entered on. They,
too, will be needed and welcome.—Ma
rine Journal.

The Red Cross Auxiliary. The
recent battles on the western front in
France are filling the hospitals with
wounded. Our own troops will soon be
there. Letters from the Red Cross head
quarters in Boston state the urgent and
pressing need for hospital supplies of
every kind. The citizens of Belfast have
contributed generously of their money
and much work is ready, but at present
there are not workers enough to turn off
this work as rapidly as needed. It is
hoped that every woman in town will
| feel an individual responsibility and try
to devote one afternoon a week at least
to this work. Let us do our bit....The
Boston chapter of the American Red
Cross issues a warning that persons
without authority are using the name of
the organization in soliciting money.
Persons are accordingly requested to con
tribute no money, except to those whom
they know to be authorized to receive
such contributions....All who can are
asked to clip cotton materials for pillows,
keeping the white clippings which are
used for fracture pillows, separate from
the colored, which are used for comfort
pillows. They may be left at the rooms
or with Mrs. Chas. H. Walden, Court
street. A large quantity can be used....
The local Auxiliary has received a con
tribution of $10 from Alfred Johnson and
one of $5 from Trinity Reformed church
of East Belfast....Following are directions
for wristers: Knit eight inches long on
four steel needles or on two. For four
needles: cast on 20 stitches on each of
three needles; knit 2 and purl 2 for seven
inches. To make hole for thumb reverse
knitting, knit back and forth for inch
and a quarter, then join, closing hole and
knit an inch. Overcast edge of thumb
or crochet single stitch to strengthen
edge. For two needles: Cast on 80
stitches; knit 2 and purl 2 for 9 inches.
When sewing up, leave 1 1-4 inches for
thumb hole, top of hole being one inch
below top of wrister.
The regular monthly meeting of the
Belfast Board of Trade was held at the
Court House last Friday evening with a
good attendance. A number of matters
pertaining to Belfast’s interest were dis
cussed. President Slugg reported that
the plans and specifications made by the
government engineers on the proposed
ships have been received and were on file
at the Waldo Trust Company and that the
attention of both Lester Wilbur of Bangor
and O. E. Frost of this city had been
called to them, both having been inter
ested in the building of some ships in
this city. The present conditions indicat
ed a delay, however, on the grounds that
there was some dissension on the part of
the government officers as to the advisi
bility of building wooden ships on this
plan. Mr. I. L. Wilband, the head ship
builder for George A. Gilchrest at Thom
aston, had been in the city in the past
week and looked over the Frost yard and
found it well adapted to that class of
work. The withdrawal of the steamer
Islesboro, Capt. Bennett, from the Bel
fast, Camden and Islesboro service was
also reported, it being claimed that the
boat could not be made to pay and that
| the loss of the mail contracts also reduced
her earning capacity. There was some
I discussion on the moving and purchase of
■ the Dana Building and the matter is still
in the hands of the committee, who expect
a little later to be able to solve the prob
lem of a new location and the purchase of
the building. There was but a partial re
port on the matter of the Boys Club and
while nothing definite has been agreed
pon it is hoped that the next meeting
will bri g more encouraging news. The
committee appointed to confer with a
similar committee from John Cochran
Chapter, D. A. R., reported that a suitable
tablet had been made and was ^oon to be
properly set at the entrance to tljj old
: Read farm on Northport Avenue, which
i was the early home of John Cochran,
J settled in May 1770, one of the 32 pro
: prietors of Belfast, Lot 42, and a member
of the Boston Tea Party. This is of the
oldest and most historic places in the city.
There are a number of other important
places in the city which will also be mar
ked.
