Science prostituted to wholesale,
murder is the diabolical scheme with
which Germany has sought to destroy
civilization in order that on the ruins
it might build a world-controlling,
autocratic, atheistic power.
All that German scientists have
been able to achieve has been, by the
German government and the German
people, prostituted to the killing and
the maiming of millions in order that
Germany might conquer and loot the
In the air, on the land and under the
sea every device which the chemis.
and the engineer have been able to
devise for bringing Buffering and sor?
row upon the world has been put into
?Hoot by German experts. All that
the whole German nation has accom?
plished in the past in the development
of science has been prostituted to the
destruction of moral forces at homo
and to the murder of millions of peo?
ple on the battlefield.
It has been said that this is a war
of science, but, broadly speaking, wo
are not cngagud in war, for the fight
to which this nation ami our allies
have dedicated their lives is not a
war such as the world has ever
This a campaign by Germany
of deliberately, definitely-planned,
long-gloriftcd-in murder.
This is a campaign of frightfulness
which finds expression in ruthless de?
struction of every country over which
the rotten-souled armies of Germany
have inarched.
This is a campaign in which Ger?
many has glorified in its power to in?
dict suffering untold upon women and
children, in which it has ruthlessly
shot the agud and infirm, in which it
has destroyed churches and cathe?
drals with the same gloating glee of
the demon with which Germans have
destroyed womanhood and childhood.
This is not, therefore, a war of
science; it is a light in which science
as expressed through chemistory and
engineering, is being used to the ut?
most power of human ingenuity, aid?
ed by every influence which the devil
himself can put into effect to enublc
Germany to make more frightful its
hell-devised and hell-begotten plan of
mil rder.
We have been compelled to meet
German science with greater science.
We have been forced to find a way to
master its work in the air, on the land
and under the sea; and the science
of Americans and of our allies will
yet prove as far superior to the sci?
ence of Germany in its campaign of
murder as American honor exceeds
thw block dishonor of Germany.
As every telegraphic click across
the Atlantic brings a new toll of death
and of suffering our hearts should be
.Heeled to an unbending and unbend
able determination that Germany ami
che German people shall pay to the
utmost extent of human power the
penalty of their crimes, not only be?
cause they deserve punishment us the
blackest criminals in human history,
but in order that civilization may be
safeguarded for the future.
Every word of peace spoken in I
America or in the countries of our
allies is uttered by some one who is
a pro-German at heart, whatever may
be the disguise under which he seeks
clothed in the livery of Heaven, to do
the devil's work.

of civilization, false to the honor of

utters; one word suggestivo of peace
without punishment.
False is every man who even for
on? moment thinks that an unbeaten,
unrepentant, unpunished Germany,
would not for all the centuries to
come be a blot upon civilization ami
an exerlnsting disgrace to those who
profess to believe in that righteous
wrath, which every honest-heurted
man and woman should have as we
contemplate the boundless woe and
unvoicabls sorrow with which Ger?
many has tilled the world, merely that
its people might become the murder?
ers, the outragers, the looters of all
mankind for personal and national
aggrandizement. It should seem that
even Almighty God would to such
spineless moral degenrates or cow?

punishment say, "Because you are
neither hot or cold I will spew you

A number of people went out on
Wednesday to see the Fordson Trac?
tor perform on or.e of the I'eery
farms. The tractor was drawing .'7
disks in corn stubble, and, us some?
one put it, "tearing the ground all lo
pieces." Being two sets of disks- -
one behind the other, it was double
disking, doing double the necessary
work of, say, six horses, and doing it
well, with only one man?the driver,
in this instance, Mr. Dribble. Under
reasonably favorable conditions, such
as prevailed at this demonstration,
tho tractor would cover some 25 acres
n day, it was claimed. And then,
too, a harrow can be attached,
and both operations?disking and
harrowing?be performed at the same
time. The Fordson seems no longer
an experiment in its field. On lands,
reasonably smoothe and not too steep
the machine is a great labor saver
and time saver. Mr. A. J. Higgin
bothnm, said to be one of tho very
best farmers in the county, was pres?
ent and much pleased with the per?
formance of the Fordson.
