We may not rest satisfied with this verdict of history. We may de mand more credit for our military enterprises and economic assistance. But there it is.

THE VERDICT HISTORY IS PREPARING. The verdict of history, as to how the World War was won, and to whom and what agencies credit should be awarded, is rapidly pre paring. And it is becoming more evident daily that this verdict will not be entirely to our liking. It will have been noted by read ers of public addresses and docu ments that our former too boastful claims have been greatly tempered. There is rarely heard today the once familiar boast that "we won the war." We are beginning to al low some credit to French genius which really guided, perhaps creat ed, victory and to the vast efforts put forth by the allied European na tions. But European students of and ac tors in the great conflict have al ready arrived at pretty definite and harmonious views on the subject. While these students of war do not throw our claims out of court, they no longer attempt to soothe us or flatter us by graciously accepting our contribution to victory at our own high valuation. Stephens Lauzanne, himself a close student of the war, has an article in The Outlook of September 7, which is entitled "Germany Was De feated When America Declared War, Says General Buat." Lauzanne ie editor of "Le Martin," one of the greatest of the French newspapers. This title is itself misleading, for Lauranne seems to have two inter pretations of the words of the fa mous French military expert. He seems to take the following language f the General's "It was not in No vember, 1918, when Armistice was signed, that Germany was defeated; it was in April, 1917, when America declared war" as giving us credit for the decisive coup, even if no blow, save a moral one, had been struck by us up to that time. But this is hardly what Buat means, and Lau zanne is aware of this, later on. We quote a passage from his article: jj. ay people have asked this ques ts -r .. Wat would have happened in the spr! ; of 1918 to Hindenburg if, in sist .i of wearing out the German foircu in the exhaustible attacks, he had -raited quietly behind his for ntid: lie lines of defense satisfying hin.M !f in warding off the blows?" To this Hindenburg has replied in his "Mmmories:" "The German army would have died of exhaustion before the ene my," to which General Buat, in his be ok, replies as follows: "The German army would have been beaten all the same, because during the series of attacks which we 1 ad foreseen, and whose execu tion was to have been extremely rapii', nothing could have saved the Gern :.n reserve. . . Our job would perh; ps have been harder, but the American army, which was there, numerous, ardent, admirably equip ped would have enabled us to accom plish it successfully. . . The suc- cps- of the "war would most probably only have been decided in the spring of 1,119. But it would not have been changed, and the German army would have suffered the same disaster it su (Tired in the summer of 1918." History is beginning to record our part in the winning of the war a; not the work of the armies in France, not the vast supplies of food and munitions of war, great as these contributions were but as the moral shoe': to Germany of President Wil son's enunciation of the great prin c:rt' ? for wTiich humanity was con t4i!:ng. Those principles were and remain invincible. What was needed was their proclamation by some present-day high authority, and their prompt recognition by the masses of mankind. The proclaiming of these principles, along with the ideal that peace should be merciful to the peo ples misled by Prussionism, sattered the morale of Germany and Austria. That is our great contribution to ward the winning of the war. And it is because this contribution was mode by and through Wood row Wilst a that all the miserable dicker dig assl evasions and betrayals of Some men are born poor, and some monkey with stock exchange. Still, this coo clucks organization has a harmless, barn-yard sound. If you can't lick him, flatter him. It amounts to the same thing in the end. The tired business man probably gets that way reading advice about how to get back to normal. A Congressman informs us that every great business man has his hobby. Doesn't he mean lobby? "Tariff tinkerers are not satisfied with their work." That appearently, makes it unanimous. The book salesman can get almost every man's signature on the dotted line if he will say that he is offering the work to intellectuals only. What did ships do for a living in the old clays before they began to bring immigrants to America? As people grow older they lose faith in Santa Claus and begin to look to the Federal treasury. Every once in a while you see a honlUno that, rlnesn't sav anvthine about anybody getting killed. A man may forgive you if you ridicule his children, but not if you ridicule his home-brew formula. To the lay mand, about the only difference between golf and old fashioned "shinny" is plaid stockings. When a negotiator says his pa tience is exhausted, he probably means that his epithets are exhausted. Most of the light touring cars are designed to hold five passengers or twelve girls. Man is never raved over by the ladies except when he is three months old and when he becomes a movie star. The best nearly always get through introducing all of the scene shifters before the first rele is exhausted. If it accomplished nothing else, the war imyproved the average Ameri can's batting average in the matter of geography. A Congressman remarks that man is no greater than his convictions. Neither, for that matter, is a sys tem of jurisprudence. You can judge of a man's richness by the size of his kennel, and judge of his poverty by the number of hounds about his yard. One reason why Germany is lead ing the way back to normal is be cause she doesn' thave to waste any energy to preserve her sphere of influence. BURGLARS ROB STORE OF P. J. MANUCY Burglars entered the home of P. J. Manuucy sometime between Satur day midnight and Sunday morning and robbed Mr. Manucy of $120 in cash and checks. Up to a late hour last night no clues could be found of the perpetrators of the deed. ..Entrance was gained through a aeceendoor in the back cf the house, and the burglars or burglar came through the house and into Mr. Manucy's bedroom where he was sleeping, and within three feet of him and took the money from his trousers pocket, and from a small sack on the dresser. The money was the cash receipts of his sales for the latter part of the week. Mr. Manucy states that there were checks among the stolen articles, and that none of them have been endors ed and that payment has been or dered stopped at the banks. Mer chants in the city are warned to be on the lookout for these checks and not to cash them but to report the person presenting them. One check was signed by J. Waterman for $25 another was signed by P. C. O'Haver for $3, another for $2.50 by William Be bout and another for $1.68 by W. R. M in ton. Merchants are requested to be on the lookout for these and to report them to the po lice authorities at once.

I At the Grand House Peters Today . j House Peters has always been a favorite in Palatka, having first won his way to the hearts of local movie patrons by his splendid work in Henry Miller's great success, "The Great Divide." He will be seen at the Grand today in a picture that is de scribed by all of the trade journals of moviedom as the greatest piece of acting he has ever done, in "The Great Redemption." The story was written with a keen eye to drama. Interest is caught at once in the hero bandit who holds up a train, and escapes from the pur suit of the sheriff through the aid of the girl. Though vowing to go straight he weakens and is captured after his pal has been killed. Sen tenced to serve ten years he vows to "get" thesheriff for the killing of his pal. Across the corridor of a cell holds a condemned murderer, a blasphem ous individual, who refusing to ac cept the copy of the Bible handed hom by the chaplain hurls the offering into Dan Malloy's cell. Malloy, whil ing away his time by sketching on the prison walls, turns over the cov er of the Bible, exposing the figure of Christ on the cross. He rubs out the sketch of a figure of the pugilist and begins to draw the figure of Christ on thecross. Here the dramatic values of the incident are skillfully worked up. The sketch is finished. In the stream of moonlight flooding through the bar red windows appears Christ in life moving from the sketch on the wall. Reverently the condemned man and Malloy fall to their knees. The guards come running, they too kneel in awe. And then the vision fades and the murderer cries out of his en lightened soul': "I have seen God." It is an anticlimax of rare power and impressiveness. During the show ing at the Rivoli theatre the picture was stopped at this point, the house darkened, and the hymnal number sung off stage. The effect was tremendous. NEW BOOKS AT THE LIBRARY Among the new books of fiction at the Palatka Library there is one for you. hatever may be your taste. -Do you like realism without sordid ness? Then try Booth Tarkington's latest piece of fiction, "Alice Adams." Ellen Glasgow wrote to the publish ers of this novel, ""Alice Adams is the art that is a joy forever a move ment of ordinary life impressed in crystal." Or how would you like a Western story ? Here is a tale by everybody's favorite, Peter B. Kine. If you have made the acquaintance of "Kindred of the Dust,' you will want to read this story of golden California, "The Pride of Palomar." If your taste -runs to stories of English life, perhaps you would like "A Man of Property," by John Gals worty. This is the first in the series that is brought up-to-date by "To Let." (Which by the way, you can laso find at the library.) Perhaps, though, you would prefer a romance with the hero and heroine living happily ever after. Then fol low the adventures of Tabs and re joice with him when he finds his "Kingdom round the Corner."" His story is chronicled by Coningsby Dawson. Not fiction, but as entertaining, is "Margaret Asquith," the autobiog raphy of Mrs. Asquith, the wife of England's former prime minister. "SCHOOL DAYS, SCHOOL DAYS" Do you remember the old song about school days being golden rule days ? It is wrong to send a coughing, sneezing, spitting child to school to spread germs -among -other little ones. Common colds are infectious, Protect your own and other little ones with Foley's Honey and Tar. This safe family remedy checks coughs and colds, loosens phlegm and mucuous and coats raw, irritating membranes with a healing, soothing medicine. We are proud of the confidence doc tors, drugfiats and the public have ia 666 Chill and Fever Tonic. Record Settlement Made by Lawson E. W.
