THE ADAIR COUNTY NEWS E "r :- From Illinois. Onarga, May 12, 1916. " Editor News: .' Thinking perhaps a few lines . v. . . from this part of the world would ', l be interesting, I will endeavor to ' ?.." write. Well, oats are looking , fine and most every farmer is ready to plant corn. We have had a nice spring, Not much rain. , - We are farming two hundred acres. We will have sixty acres in oats and one hundred and five, acres in corn. You can have all the time you want-to do wokr in from 14 to 16 hours a day. Corn is sixty-five cents per bushel, oats 40 cents, and thai is pretty good. I came out the 14th .of. r March and went to'-workthe 20th, at $30.00 per month, and . if corn is good will make , 3,000 bushels. I put up 2,900 bushels in 29 days last fall. If President . Wilson will keep us boys out of Mexico. President Wilson's won derful opportunity with the ac r ceptance of Germany's reply to his note on the submarine ques tion, honorable and effective 1 . . mediation between the warring . powers, opens before Mr. Wilson. We are bound to believe that trie r resident is as anxious as , any other sensible and human . American to see the dreadful ,, devastation and slaughter in ( Europe speedily ended. -We can x ' -.see no other method of speedily "lending this dreadful slaughter and devastation except by the meditatory officer . of the Gov eminent of the United States. We believe that Germany i3 willing to negotiate upon the terms of returning to the Status of July, 1915. If the frequent , , declaration of cabinets and chancellors mean anything, neither France, England, Ger many, Austria nor iurKey are fighting to obtain spoils or con quest. England and France de clare they are fighting to drive ' the Germans out of France and r. Belgium. Germany and Aus- i ., . tna and Turkey declare that -: 'V they are fighting to prevent m vasion and to keep their terri ; tories intact. A return to the V pi Status of 1914 would thus fulfill the open and frequent negotition of peace of these Great Powers or to its object in keeping on with the war. Setting aside the brags of both sides, meant only for the con sumption of the ill-informed and feeble thinking at home and abroad, we may confidently as sume that both sides have dis covered the practical impossibil ity of either achieving a deci sive victory without the victor being as hopelessly bankrupt and as irreparably weakened as the vanquished. They know this a? well in Berlin as in Lon don, as well in Vienna as in Paris and as well in Rome as in Constantinople. The only pos sible jesult of prolonging the war to a decision in Europe would be to establish, combine Russia and Japan as the irresistible dicta tors of Europe and Asia and that is a prospect fully as repellant to Batata's present allies as to -Iwr present enemies. Perhaps rati more repellent This be ing the open aspect of the mili- itary situation, it is not hard to find many little significant bub bles on the surface of events to show the probable submarine operations of diplomacy. We think that this economic con gress of the Allies at Paris a few days ago,was in reality an ex change of views as to irreduci able terms of peace acceptable to those powers. We think the secret conclave at Vienna was the Qerman, attended by Aus trian, Bulgarians and Turkish representatives for the same.pur pose. We think that the decla ration of Germany's willingness .to discuss peape. terms made in the reply to President Wilson's note was meant as a veiled 'invi tation to the President to extend mediatory office. We think that the message from the Pope to President Wilson was another invitation of the same tenor. We know that the . Scandinavian kingdoms, Holland,. Switzerland and Spain, together with Brazil and Argentina are all anxious to join the United States in neutral representation to the warring powers and we most certainly know that the whole body of the American people are most ar dently willing and desirous that our Government at least, make an honest and honorable attempt to end this horrid war" before it has completely sapped, and de? stroyed the strength of, the. na tions across the Atlantic. . We" have not been at all. dispqsed to. see Mr. Wilson re-elected yet cause which we now suggest to Mr. Wilson would be, if he car ried it through, almost make his election sure. We do not care the snap of a finger for any possible candidate of party politics or of party or personal feelings in the race of their honorable cateclysm which is engulping our race. God for bid that any such consideation should weigh even so much as one poor grain of dust in the balance in which hangs the lives and deaths of millions of our fel Iowmen and the happiness and the anguish of millions of our sister women. We speak from our heart's sin cere emotions when we most ear nestly urge the President to make essay of the Nation's powerful influence to bring truce rnd peace to destressed and agonized Eu rope. It i3, we do most sincere ly believe, a noble and wonder ful opportunity to serve God and mankind, and to secure for our own country the gratitude and the respect of the Nations of the earth and long years of security and peace and happiness through out the world. May we not all pray that the Almighty Provi dence will guide the President and the Nations in their supreme ly decisive hour to be the Mes sengers of Peace on Earth and Good Will to Mankind, We had but just completed this article when the news of another Mexican raid, about which you have already, read, came over the wires. It seems to me that this raid with the usual 'accompaniments of arsons, robbry and assassinations is an LOST 5 YEARS FROM HIS LIFE Remarkable Story Is Told by Ohio Man Who Has Been Restored by Tanlac. "I have been able to work only about six months each year for the past ten years. "But I haven't lost a day's work since I began to take Tanlac." This is the statement of David :R Uase,.of Mt. Healthy, Ohio, near Cin cinnati. '. Tiiese two short sentences contain as high a tribute as can be paid to a medicine.. ..Tanlac is literally putting money into David E. Case's pocket every day. He can count its value to him in dollars and cents. "Six months a year for ten years." To.the average man, this means thou sands of dollars It may mean the difference between want and plenty, lb means Ave years out of a man's life. Mr. Case's story will strike home to, thousands. "I suffered from a stomach trouble so serious that I could not work more than six months out of a year for the past, ten years," he said. "There would be dull, constant pains in ray stomach and shooting pains -in my breast, back and arms. "Everything! ate seemed to. dis agree with me. I discontinued drink ing coffee' for a year, but that made no difference in my condition. 1 sim plo could not get anything that bene fitted me. "I saw. the remarkable praise Tan lac was winning,, and more in desper ation tlian anything else, I decided to t try it I believe that I would be shirking a real duty if ,1 failed to tell my story, remarkable as it may" seem. "I have now used two" Bottles of Tanlac. My appetite has returned, and I sleep well The pains are rare now, and, best of all,-1 can -work all the time. I feel stronger than I have in years. "Taulac has done worlds forme. It has doubled my income. It is human nature for Mr. Case to believe that he is the exception and not the rule but his story really is not a great deal different from the statements of many thousands. There is no remedy that acts as favorably on ailments of the stomach, liver and kidneys and on catarrhal affections "as does Tanlac, which is now being introduced in Columbia: at the Page & Hamilton drug store. T. C Moore & Co., Gresham; C. H Jarvis & Son, Coburg; L. G. Wilcox, Exie; J F. Miller & Son, Crocus. Adv. additional reason why European peace should be hastened if Mr. Wilson can do so. We must stop these Mexican outrages. We must end. their anarchy and ruin in. Mexico that is not a proposi tion of war upon any neighbor ing governments. That is sim ply a police job in country which has no government and in- which every libel element is running amuck. But it is a long and tedeous and big police job and well will it be if we, have no other danger and risk to face while we are ridding Mexico of Brigandage and making that unhappy coun try safe for Mexicans and Ameri cans alike.
