He said: "I have no personal feeling in this matter against Carranza. This country should not again be under military government. The armies by our constitution arc secondary to the constituted government and tis now time that the country should be governed by the people, for the people and not as heretoore, governed by a military clique, whose only object is personal welfare and not the welfare of the masses. "I desire the moral help of the American people in this political fight I am now waging. I consid er myself the moral champion to procure by all honorable means for the down-trodden countrymen justice and at the same time showing them their obligations towards law and order. "There need be no alarm what ever regarding my standing in this matter. I desire the Ameri can people to understand once and for all, that I shall now take the part of silent moral pressure on any government they may emanate; this pressure is not menacing by any means. I de sire morality, the strictest moral ity in government. "I desire that my country in view of its past sufferings by mil itary dictators, should in this auspicious occasion inaugurate her government under civil auth or! titics." LECfURESlN" TEMPERANCE A Very Large Crowd Hears Gifted Woman at the Court House Monday Night. Mrs. Mary Harris Armor, known as the "Georgia Whirl wind" and President of thc W. C. T. U., of that State, spoke here Monday evening at the Court House in behalf of the cause of temperance. She has a strong voice, well suited for public speaking, is highly edu cated and cultured and for about two hours held the undivided attention of her audience which filled the court room, aisle ways and gallery and many were un able to get in. That she made a fine impression and accom plished much for her cause is admitted by all. A number of German-American societies have adopted resolutions calling upon the American press to print the news of the European war fairly and therefore, without prejudice. It is needless to say that the newspapers wilL do that very thing without urging. If there is any one thing in the pres ent crisis that thc press is trying to do it is to print thc news just as nearly correct as possible. With all of thc belligerants cen soring- the dispatches forwarded by correspondents it is almost im possible to known whether the news received in this county is correct.

TIME FOR WEED CUTTING The State Road Commissioner is calling the attention of road engineers and county officials to a law passed at the last session of the Legislature which requires the cutting of weeds along the right-of-way of county roads. This law provides that county engineers "shall cause noxious weeds growing by the bounds of the public roads to be cut down in the month of August." Most weeds mature in August and if they are cut and burned during that month the next year's weed crop will be smaller. The cut ting of weeds along the county try, and the weeds are not by any means confined to the country. Drouth which destroy field and garden crops have Httle effect on weeds. Mt. Sterling has many flourishing patches of this useless vegetat:on and would have less of it next year if the sickle and hoe were used to good effect. Let those who have weeds to cut in town or in country go valiantly and willingly to the work. m HAS NARROW ESCAPE Paul, the 16-year-old son of Mr. and Mrs. J. F. Mason, of De Sota, Kan., formerly of this city, had a narrow escape from death August 15th, when the false work of a bridge upon which he was working collapsed, carrying hun with eight other workmen, thirty five feet to the ground below. One of the workmen was killed out-right and several others in jured, but fortunate young Mason escaped without a scratch. This is the second narrow escape Mr Mason has had on the same job. Good, honest faithful endeavor will nose out in thc end, al though sometimes compelled to go a few extra innings. THE FRENCH. ARMY laud fighters la new shown at hla field
