Apparently he was ; in deep thought; but he really was he K lining to heeoine very angry. With | ? little start he turned to. the girl on ne sofa calmly humming a popular "Peggy Starr. I wouldn't believe you would he so unaccommodating with out sa.vin? a word from the patriotic point of view, it certainly wouldn't j ! "Ur* you to ,,e'P me out by just doing I su><> , a '"tie thing as that." ? I ve told you, 1 wouldn't be In that i ! parade and I mean It. Why. Ed. do I I you think for a minute I would go - riding all about the streets of tills , j'ity mounted on an old wagon, and j Imvlng every eye on the street cor ners looking me In the face. Well, 1 guess not." she ended with finality. "Well, there's a good many girls that are going to be In It that are In even better society than you are. and they don t see anylhing the matter with it." "It doesn't make the- slightest differ ence to me what anybody else does. Ed, so please let the matter drop. Ami if you would go nlong now It would be very nice of you. as I have a good many things to do fhls evening." Ld noticed the chill note In her voice and took his hat without another word The moment he had left the room. Peggy jumped up to go after him. With great effort she held herself hack, but she continued to think of what she had said. She knew she had hurt Ed's feelings and It bothered her more than she cared to admit. Still think ing how mean she had acted, she was Imerrupted by the ringing of the tele phone. Hello, said the voice of her churn. Helen Whitman. "Peggy,, have you been asked to be In the parade next Monday?" "Yes, but I'm not going to do It." replied Peggy slowly. "You're not? Why. Peg. I thought of course you were. Why, the idea, everybody is going to do something for that." "Well, I for one. will he the laugh ing stock for nobody. If you want to he dressed up like a wax doll and set in a chariot for everyone to gaze at, jou can. but I'm not going to.". 'Nome people give the hoys a hearty welcome when they come hom?,\" came fioni Helen sarcastically as she re- I placed the receiver on the hook. After j shutting off. Peggy got up with tears ! in her eyes. She had beep looking at i the celebration from her own stand- ! point, never giving a thought to whom It was really for. Quickly she took up the telephone and got the chairman of the committee on the line. "Mr. Wood? Well, this is Margaret Starr on Wood stead street. I understand you uecd somebody for a role In the parade. If it is convenient for you I will stop at your office on my way downtown." The next day Peggy Starr started on a little visit to a neighboring city and when Ed called that evening he was told Miss Starr would return Monday. Of course. Ed firmly believed she had gone away in order not to be asked about the parade. With a little shrug of the shoulders he turned and went to his office. Twice between Friday eve ning and Monday morning he called | her np via telephone, only to hear she 1 had not returned and there was no message. At last Monday came, the day of the great parade. The sun rose over the New England hjlls in the distance with alarming rapidity, and by ten o'clock the parade had formed In line. The floats were many and elaborate, but one in particular attracted much attention. The automobile was made Into a modern chariot, with American flags covering the whole outside. In side. the chariot was pure white, and on one end a high platform. One fig ure stood on this platform, "Columbia" by name, and at her feet sat two bravo lf<ds, one in liltie and one iy khaki. As the float moved slowly about tho i streets and ''Columbia" stood holding , her torch majestically above her head, I e\ eryon'e was thrilled. At la?t tho route was covered and scores of poo- : l?le were crowding about the beautiful I float. "Columbia" stepped from her j platform where the radiant Ed was ' awaiting her. "Peggy, is. it really you doing this?" I "Why, of course, It is I. Iion't I ' look natural?" "Hut where have you been these last I three days?" , "Ed, you made me feel so ashamed > (he other day, I had to go somewhere, i so I went down to Lancaster. I I thought you'd be glad." "(Jlad ! Why I'm so glad I could cry, Peggy. You certainly are one of j those Victory Girls." . "But. Ed, the greatest victory I've ' had Is the one over myself. I have ' learned a good lesson and my pride ' will be better for It." With a happy ? sigh she laid her hand in Ed's. f' (Copyright. 1919. by tlie MrClure News paper Syndicate.) j| Florid Language in Treaty.

J He Has Had His Day LEAGUE FULFILS AMERICAN IDEAL l ^ Herbert Hoover Says Democra cies Replaced Autocracies at Our Bidding. FOOD ADMINISTRATION CHIEF. Urges Ratification on Ground That Peace Treaty Will Collapse Without League of Nations. Herbert Hoover is so deeply con cerned over the opposition to the league of Nations in the United States that he has let himself he in terviewed at length on the League sit uation. In a talk with the New York Tinies correspondent in Paris, the Food Administration Chief asserts tlmt ! having caused the league Idea to- pre- j rail America cannot abandon It. We; '*nn not withdraw, he says, and leave (?-urope to chaos. "To abandon the League Covenant now means that the treaty itself will collapse." Mr. Iloover's wide acquaintance with conditions hoth here and abroad, his reputation as an administrator, a man of great affairs who deals with facts, not theories, make his state ment one of the most important con tributions to the recent League discus sions. ? "There are one or two1 points in con nection with the present treaty," said Mr. Hoover, "that need careful consid eration by the American public. We need to digest the fact that we have for a century and a half been advo cating democracy not only " as a remedy for the internal ills of all so ciety. but also as the only real safe guard against war. We have believedi and proclaimed. In season and o?t, that a world in which there was a free expression and enforcement of the win. of the majority was the real basis of government, was essential for the adrvancement of civilization, and that we have proved its enormous hu man benefits In our country. American Ideas Have Prevailed. "We went into the war to destroy autofracy as a menace to our own and' all other democracies. If we had not come Into the war every Inch of Euro pean soil today would be under uuto cratlc government. We have imposed our wlM on the world. Out of this victory has come the destruction of the four great awtoeracies in Ger many, Russia, Turkey and Austria and the little autocracy in Greece. New democracies have sprung into being in Poland, Finland, Letvla, Lithuania, Ksthonla, Czechoslovakia, Greater Serbia, Greece, Siberia, and even Ger many and Austria have established democratic governments. Beyond these a host of small republics, such as Armenia, Georgia, Azerbaijan and ??thers, have sprung up, and again as a result of this great world movement the constitutions of Spain, Rumania, and even Hnglaud, have made a final ascent to complete franchise and de mocracy, although they still maintain a symbol of royalty. "We have been the living spring for this last century and half from which these Ideas have sprung, and we have triumphed. The world today, except for a comparatively few reactionary and communistic autocracies, is dem ocratic, and we did It. "A man who takes n wife and blesses the world with several Infants cannot go away and leave them on the claim that there was no legal mar riage. "These Infant democracies all have political, social and economic prob lems Involving their neighbors that are fraught with the most Intense friction. There are no natural bound aries in Kurope. Races are not com pact; they blend at every border. They rteed railway communication and sea outlets through their neighbors' terri tory . "Many of these states must for the next few years struggle almost for bare bones to maintain their very existence. Kvcry one of (hem is go ing to do its l>c*t ; to protect Its own Interests, even to the prejudice of in neighbors, Govcrnmcntc Lack Experience. "We In Aiut'iku should rculizu that i democracy, ns a stable form of govern ment as we know it. Is possible only with highly educated populations and a large force of men who are capable of government. Few of the men who compose these governments have had any actual experience nt governing and their populations are woefully il literate. "They will require a generation of actual national life In peace to de velop free education and skill in gov ernment. "Unless these countries have a guid ing hand and referee in their quarrels, a court of appeals for their wrongs, this Europe will go back to chaos. If there Is such an institution, rep resenting the pub-He opinion of she ! *rorld, and able to exert its authority,, they will grow into stability. We can not turn back now. "There is another point which al'so> net?tN emphasis. Wwld treaties hith erto have always been based on the* theory of a balance of jwtwer. Strong er races have been set! up to dominate' the weaker, partly witli a view to m:tlc>tainlrig stability and to a greater degree with a view to maintaining oc cupations and positions for the re action; tries of the world. "The balance of power is born of ' armies and navies, aristocracies, autocracies, and reactionaries general ly, who can find employment and domination in these institutions, and treat i?s founded on this basis have established stability after?each great war for a shorter or longer time, but never more than a generation. "America came forward with a new Idea, und we Insisted upon its injec tion Into this peace conference. We claimed that it was possible to set up such a piece of machinery with such authority that the balance of power could be abandoned as a relic of the middle ages. We- compelled an entire const roction of this treaty and every word bud line in it to bend to tills idtea. "Outside of the League of Nations the treaty itself has many deficiencies. It represents compromises between many men and between* many selfish interests, and these very compromises and deficiencies are multiplied by the many new nations that have entered upon its signature, and the very safety of th* treaty Itself lies. In a court of nppeal for the remedy- of wrongs in the- treaty. Bsnefits of the League. "Oise thing is certain-. There is no body of human beings, so wise that a treaty could be made that would not develop injustice and' prove to have been# wrong In some- particulars. As the covenant stands today there is n pinco at winch redress can be found audi through which the goodwill of the world can be enforced. The very machinery by which the treaty is to. be- executed, and scores of points yet to be solved, which have been referred to the League of Nations as a method of securing more mature judgment In a less heated atmosphere, justifies the creation of the League. "To abandon the covenant bow means that the treaty itself will col lapse. "It would take the exposure of but a few documents at my hand to p'rove that I had been the most reluctant of Americuns to become Involved in this situation in EurojH*. Hut lining gone in with our eyes open and with a de termination to free ourselves and the rest of the world from the dangers that surrounded u?, we cannot now pull back from the Job. It Is no use to hold a creut revival nud then go away leaving k church t'ov continued services half done. "We have succeeded ii> a most ex traordinary d**;.Tee in Imposing upon Europe the complete conviction that we are absolutely disinterested. The consequence is that there is scarcely a nuin, woman or child who can read III Europe that does not look to the United States as the ultimate source from which they must receive assur ances and guardianship In the liberties which they have now secured after so many generations of struggle. "This is not a problem of protecting the big nations, for the few that re main can well look after themselves. What we have done is to set up a ?score of little democracies, and If the American people could visualize their handiwork they would Insist with the same determination that they did In IU17 that our government proceed,'' OFFICIAL DIRECTORY Of Greenbrier County.
