Face the Truth. By force of habit, doubtless, the theory seems to survive among many Republican spokes men that President Wilson's ad ministration can be discredited by misrepresentation. One evi dence lies in the effort being made to arouse sentiment in the business community by dwelling in every advertising medium they can reach upon the in creases of imports under the Underwood Tariff Law, notwith standing the European War. The effort is bound tofail for a very simple reason the facts riddle it. In their "tariff publicity," the Republican partisans ignore the enormous increases of exports because these show the unpre cedented prosperity of the coun try. Also, they do not analyze the imports. If they did both, they would discover the increase of imports is wholly due to the fact that the U. S. is drawing upon all parts of the earth to se cure the materials from which to manufacture the vast -quantities of supplies of all sorts which oth er nations, both belligerents and neutrals, need at this time. Huge though it be, the domestic sup ply of many of these raw mater ials is not adequate to supply the demand, and hence foreign raw materials are being brought in to augment the domestic supply. That such is the situation clear ly appears from new statistics on the subject just issued by the Department of Commerce. By reducing or removing entirely the tariffs on many essential raw materials tae Underwood Tariff Act greatly aided American man ufacturers in meeting the new foreign demands upon them. Thus millions upon millions of dollars have been drawn into this country in payment of the service rendered by American labor and capital in manufactur ing these imported raw mater ials into articles desperately needed by the outside world. mi rne conclusion ousmess men will draw is obvious: The tariff should not be changed unless conditions change, and then should be readjusted only upon the advice of experts. The lat ter contingency is provided against by President Wilson's recommendation for the creation of a tariff commission. I keep on hands a full stock of coffins, caskets, and robes.

Columbia,, Ey Rates 50-75-1.00 How Justice is Perverted. ''It's a d-d good thing I played crazy for I saved my life by do ing it," were the first words spoken since May 11 by David Edwards' who was tried and found guilty of the murder of Willis Combs last week by a Perry county jury and sentenced to life imprisonment. The killing took place May 10. The next day Edward's wife visited him in the jail and from that day to the hour the jury found him guilty Edwards had not spoken a word either to fel low prisoners in jail or to any of the officers in charge of him. His attorneys pleaded insanity and several physicians pro nounced him insane and declar ed that his organs of speech were paralyzed. When the ver dict was returned his voice sud denly was restored he gave ut terance to the remark above quoted. A Doctor's Remedy for Coughs.

A mob of 2,500 angry men and women in the Italian quarter of Denver, Col., surrounded the Methodist Italian mission and threatened to lynch the Rev. Francesco P. Sulmonetti, who is alleged to have stated that the inhabitants of the Italian quarter of Denver live in sdualor equal to that of the Eastsiders of New York. For four hours the pas tor was barricaded in his church while the angry crowd circulated outside, armed with clubs, and provided with a rope with which they threatened to hang the di vine. The Rev. Mr. Sulmonetti was finally rescued by a squad of po liceman and a committee of Ital ians. The women in the crowd are said to have been more rabid than the men. They were more outspoken and were all armed with clubs and rocks. Taking Big Chances.

The making of the first nation al flag was under the personal di rection of Congress. Mrs. Bet tie Ross was carrying on an up holstering business in Philadel phia, and to her went Washing ton and the committee. They asked her if she could make a flag according to a pencil draw ing made by Gen. Washington. She answered that she was will ing to try. The stars in the drawing made by Washington had six points, after the English fashion. Mrs. Ross suggested that stars with five points would be more symmetrical and more pleasing to the eye, and she showed the committee how such a star could be made by folding a piece of paper and making the pattern by a single cut of the shears. Her suggestion was ac cepted and the flag was finished the next day. From that time to the present the stars on all American flags have been five pointed stars, while the stars on the United States coins have six points. Will Sloan's Liniment Relieve Pain?
