For What Did They Fight And Pay?
(Dearborn Independent.)
In tho battle of St. Mihiel, 550,00(
American soldiers fought, and man]
of them died. Kindly in civilian life
they proved themselves fierce fight?
ers when after the foe.
An idea of the size of the struggle
can be obtained by comparing it
with the Battle of Gettysburg, in
which 100,000 Northern soldiers
fought.
The Meuse-Argonne struggle lust?
ed 47 days, and 1,200,000 American
soldiers risked their lives, many of
them making the supreme sacrifice.
America had 2,080,000 soldies in
France, of whom 1,390,000 saw but?
tle service, more than 50,000 dying in
battle, a total of 122,500 overseas
having died.
There were 230,000 American sol?
diers and sailors wounded on the
western front.
No tribute i3 so great as to do jus?
tice to the gallantry shown by the
boys who turned the tide of battle
and helped our bleeding Allies to i,
victory, thoF rench soldiers who died
in the struggle having numbered 1,
385,000 and the British, 900,000.
The war cost America much more,
very much more, than $1,000,000 an
hour for two years.
The people hove paid and are pay?
ing taxes one nearly everything; if
not directly, then indirectly, on what
they wear and eat and in rent.
The nation's debt as a result of the
war is about $22,000,000,000, or about
$1,000 for every family, -which final?
ly must be paid by the toil of the
family, for no matter who pays it
directly, in the end it comes to the
consumer; and with interest added it
will amount to more than $2,0u>; near?
er 33,000 by the time it is paid.
What was the object of all thii
sacrifice of life and treasure?
What do we owe to the men who
went over and risked their all.

What do we owe to the dead on the
fields of Prance ?
What do we owe to those who came
back maimed for life?
What do we owe to those who
gave generously of wealth and time?
What do we owe humanity ?
Do we owe them an assured peace
for the future or do we owe them
endless bickering?
Those who sacrificed over there
cry out that such a sacrifice shull
never be forced on humanity again.
Theses who suffered in the tren?
ches would have themeslves, their
children and their children's children,
spared from such an ordeal again.
They know the fierceness of the
death-dealing instruments divised by
man: they know that nnother world
conflagration, carried on with the
knowledge gained in this, would all
but wipe out humanity.
GLAD TO TESTIFY

Watoga, W. Va.?Mrs. S. W. Glad wen,

My mother bought me a bottle o!
CarJui, and I began to improve after

Wo nil know that before this wa
we were told that great, arnmncnt
worked for peace, and we know nov
that that was not true; that the;
meant death to mankind.
We have learned that peace can b
maintained throughout the world onlj
through an intelligent understanding
among the nations.
And the voices of those who hnv<
gone and those who remain cry oui
for such an understanding.
That understanding, written intt
the League of Nations, is being ac?
cepted in Kurope.
Our Constitution gives the Unitei
States Senators the power to accept
or reject the understanding accept?
ed by other nations and before this
government for action.
There was no partinanship in thf
fight on the French front; there Wat
no partisanship in the buying of Lib?
erty bonds or giving to patriotic funds
there should be no partisanship in
the contest in the United States Sen
ale, but unfortunately there is.
Not Perfect Hut Good
(Dearborn Independent.)
Great and good as is the Covenant
of the League of Nations, this pa?
per does not attempt to tell its read?
ers that it is going to bung the mill?
ennium immediately.
We have bad our Declaration of
Independence 1-lti years and our Con?
stitution nearly as long. They are the
two greatest documents of human
liberty in effect on earth today, any
yet we are not entirely satisfied with
our government, beyond doubt the
best in existence.
We have amended our Constitution
many times, strengthening is where
we found it weak, making it over
where it did not fit into the needs of
our advancing civilization.
Hut always we have bad that docu?
ment as a bed rock for our liberties,
as a foundation on which to build
our prosperity, as a safeguard for the
very last of our citizens.
Wo nre a peace loving nation; WO
would work our our own destiny un?
molested ami we would grant to other
nations the same light,
The object of the League of Na?
tions is to keep the worid at peace
that each nation may wok out its
LEMONS MAKE SKIN
WHITE. SOFT, ('LEAK
Make This Beauty Lotion For a Few
Cents und See For Yourself.
What girl or Woman hasn't beard
of lemon juice to remove complexion
blemishes; to whiten the skin and to
briii? out ihe roses, the freshness and
the nidden beauty? Hut lemon juice
alone is acid, therefore irritating and
should be mixed with orchard wiiite
this way. Strain through a lino cloth
the juice of two flesh lemons into a
bottle containing about three ounces
of orcahrd white, then shake well and
you have a whole quarter pint of skin
and complexion lotion at about the
cost one usually pays for a small par
of ordinary cold cream. Bo sure to
strain the lemon juice so no pulp
gets into the bottle, then this lotion
will remain pure and fresh for many
months. When applied daily to the
face, neck arms and hands it should
help to bleach, clear smoothen and to
beautify the skin
Any druggist will supply three
ounces of orchard white at very little
cost and the grocer has the lemons.

On making the above comparison

out that in 1917, for instance, the

Aircraft Governing Factors In Next
War, Says Noted Bxpert.
London, Aug. 23.- What part win
aeroplanes play in the next war?
Agreeing with Sir Douglas ilaig
that there will be another war, for
which Pi itain must be prepared. G.
G. Gn y. one of the acknowledged
aviation experts of the country,
writes ill the magazine Aeroplane.
"It 'i evident that aircraft will
gffgems*' '?'-? j. j 1 ? iv m>-i-.ti. u. - u.1
play a similinr part to but more im?
portant that that played by the navy
in this war.
"la the first place our atiti craft
defenses which ought forthwith to
be established ns a permane.ua insti?
tution on u far larger scale than the
coast defenses under the army?will
have to assume the immunity of this
country from invasion by air.
"In the second place, our seagoing
aircraft will have to protect our trade
routes against attack by enemy sub?
marines anil surface ships.
"In the third place, our aircraft
with the army in the field will have
to do all lb.- air work required by the
expeditionary force.
Fourthly, another force of a'r
craft, bigger than all the othcrsJc
tious put together, will have to carry
war into the enemy's country. Thus
it is easy to see that the tasl; of the
flying service in the next war will be
far irrealer than that of any other
of the king's aimed forces.
"And today it is proposed by our
democratic government, not. only to
cut down our navy (which can be
spaied, if our air borce is built up to
proper strength), hut to cut down
our air force to a size which in the
next war will be in pretty well the
same proportion to our needs ns the
historic fist foor sipiadrons were i i
our needs in this war."
