President Wilson Says Ratifica?
tion by Senate Will Settle the
Questions Puzzling Slates
men of United States.
St. Paul, Minn., Sept. 9.?Readjust,
meat of the cost of living, President
Wilson declared tonight, must await
the establishment of a complete pence
basis which would put labor and capi?
tal on their feet.
In two addresses the president, as?
serted that the connection between
the acceptance of thepeace treaty and
ameliurat'on of living conditions was
a direct one, and that the world was
looking to America to take the lead
in restoring theworld to a sound eco?
nomic basis.
Mr. Wilson spoke in the morning at
a special session of the Minnesota
legislature and in the evening at a
public meeting at the St. Paul audi?
torium. During the afternoon he also
addressed a meeting in Minneapolis.
Opening bis speech, Mr. Wilson said
there were no political considerations
in his ppecch-making tr'p for the
treat. It was an American issue, be
declared, and he had come out to the
people rather to "hold counsel" than
to make a fight against anybody.
Despite the varied national origins
of the America, the president declar?
ed a "hyphen" the "most un-Ameri?
can" trait to be found in the coun?
Because of its mixed derivations,
the president asserted, America was
destined Id be the mediator of the
world. It was the only nation, he con?
tinued, that can sympathetically or?
ganize the world for peace. Of the
many delegations from foreign lands
who appealed to him for a hearing in
Paris, all were able to point out that
they had relatives in America.
Just as the soldier of tile Civil War
had saved the country, Mr. Wilson
said, the American soldier "in this
war had saved the world;" and just
uas a great nation had really been
born from the civil war, so "a great
er thing" would result from the sac?
rifices of the last few years.
Saying that, of course, the league
would not be an absolute guarantee
against war, Mr. Wilson asked wheth?
er it would not be worth while if it
reduced the probability of war even
by ten per cent. There were many
cries "Yes! Yes!" over the hall, and
a burst of cheers. The crowd cheered
again when the president added:
"And I think it reduces it about
ninety-nine per cent."
The president said it was a duty
of the United Suites to lead the way
in "peaceful production," and that
could be done best under the labor
section of the treaty. Under that sec?
tion, he said, a great international
labor conference would be held in
Washington in October, whether the
treaty had been ratified or not.
"The only question is," said be,
"whether we shall have a seat in the
conference or one on the outside."
An "absolute unclouded confidence"
that the treaty would be ratified was
expressed by the president, and be
asked the people to assert their in
"1 know what you want," be said,
"say it and get it. Tell me you don't
want to do what I'm urging and I'll
go homo."
There were erics of "No!" and "Go
to it!" and the crowd rose and cheer?
Shortly before the president con?
cluded, he was interrupted for a mo?
ment while a large bouquet of flowers
for Mrs. Wilson, who sat near the
president, was carried to her.
Treatment Por Smut in Wheat and
Oats Before Planting
Pour equal parts of 40 per cent
formaldehydde and witter together
and apply the mixture with any or?
dinary hand atomizer producing a
fbie mist at the rate of one quart of
the mixture to fifty bushels of seed.
One man should make the treatment
while another shovels the grain back
and forth. After making the treat?
ment shovel the grain back and forth
to insure uniform mixing and cover
with old bags for four hours, abso?
lutely no longer. Then spread seed
out thinly and air and sow at once.
Treat no more seed than will be sown
within twenty four hours. This treat?
ment will be thoroughly successful and
you will have no trouble if directions
are followed.
You can get the hand atomizer with
quart fruit jar at any hadware store
for 50 to 75ccnts and the formalde?
hyde at drug stores for about 50c.
per pint. This atomizer must not drip
or sprinkle the seed but. produce a
fine mist or vapor on the seed. Do not
leave seed covered over night or more
than four hours. For 26 bushels use
only one pint mixture, for 12 bu. ulje
1-2 pint mixture.
This is a cheap, simple, thoroughly
effective and snfe method of preven?
ting smut provided it is done prop?
erly and thoroughly. If you do not
follow directions and use too much or
leave seed covered too long the ger?
mination of seed is likely to be in?
I have found a great deal of wheat
in Tazewell has smut in it. It re?
duces yields and quality of wheat as
the farmers know from experience,
often reducing the value of the crop
50 per cent. Because your wheat has
no smut this year is no reason it will
not hnve it next year. The disease is
spread in so many ways, frequently
by the threshing machine. The only
safe way is to treat your seed. If your
wheat has trash or smut in it, it
should first be elcuned in a fanning
mill before trenting. Por further in?
formation write me. R. R. WALL,
County Agent.

It has spacious halls, fine lecture

fact, would be an honor to any town.
There are spacious grounds nil

fast time, an hour for dinner, and
two hour session in afternoon.
The writer of these lines was the
first speaker. Of his "few feeble re?
marks nothing need be said. Some of
the sisters got a little "bet up" by
something he said about woman suf?
frage, and an assertion that the old
proverb that "the hand that rocks
the cradle and does the spaukin' rules
the world' was not true in loto, or
words to Unit effect, but the rather,
(hat the little cherub that squalled
ami kicked in the cradle did the rub
t ing, but not always as his nut taught
him to rule, which is nearly if not
quite correct, when you CO me to think
of it. How would il sound to hear
the menwho are running things say,
"this is the way my mother brought
me up?" The other remark which
excited some comment was, the chief
objection to woman suffrage is the
suffragette, having in mind certain
"broad minded" totnboyinh women
who made themselves eonspicious ami
obnoxious in Washington and other
places, some time bach. Us better?
more satisfactory to have somebody
"kick" (hau for nobody lo say any?
thing. However, the people were good
enough to day that the speech was
allright, after nil.
