Those German soldiers hunting for iha Ameriran sector in France doubt less had the aurcess of the boy bunting for a horneta' nest. They found It. The Colonel has been discharged frcm theh)spital, pronounced cured. Ills enemies are wondering If the cure In cludes certain opinions and inclinations. Many a man who loudly proclaims himself In favor of measures that will work the greatest good to the greenest number, is also firmly convinced that No. 1 Is the greatest. The American Indian is the greatest real cstnto promoter among us. Every tract of lund the Government assigns tu him is at once so enhanced in value that everybody wants it. The profiteers who attempted to rob the Government and the officers of the army in the price of uniforms thould be given a chance to wear uriform, only it should be different from the product of their factories.

Criticism comes of the American sol di"" in France that they are too anxious to fight. What else' could one expect when they were raised on a diet com posed of three-fourths Jesse James and one-fourth Dob r'ltzsimmons? And there'll come a time lefure long when not even their officers 'csn hold them back. The American people are perfectly willing to live on "substitutes," if only those substitutes are made available. As corn, however, as a substitute is suggested, the price of that article emulates the airship. When fixing a price on wheat the government might give great relief by also fixing prices on the substitutes. Far many years now we have laid great stress on the rights and privileges of the American citizen, forgetting or ignoring the fact that with every right or privilege there Is also a duty. The time has come when we must put our full attention to these duties, and we should be as conscientious in their dis charge as we nave been insistent in de manding our rights and privileges.

"MAPLES" Beautiful Country Home Destroyed By Fire Last Saturday morning about eleven o'clock the beautiful country home of Mr. George D. Robinson was destroyed by fire, together with its contents, only a small portion of the latter being saved. No one except the servant, Jennie Withers, was at the house at the time, Mr. Robinson being out on his fsrm some distance away, Mrs. Robinson and children being in Danville. The screams of the servant brought in some of the near neighbors and those pass ing on the road, put the fire had gain ed such a headway, little progress could be made toward saving any of the contents, which conjisted of very ebaborate and expensive furniture. Mr. Robinson had spent quite a great deal of money on the place since he purchased it about two years ago. the hard wood floors alone costing him about $1,000. He had only $2,500 insurance on the house and contents and his loss is es timated at three times that amount. He haa made no definite plans, but it is thought that he will rebuild at once. The fire is supposed to have started from a grate or a defective flue In an upper room. Safety First. There's no better pro tection against fire, than a policy with Gaines, the Insurance man.
