BLOODY BILL. WHY does a picture of die Tyrasnosauros at once suggest to mrnd Kaiser Bill? Hare you ever seen a Tyrannosurus? His Tyraimodiip became frtmct 3.000,000 years ago. That, coupled with your abstemious habits, perhaps eplains why you never gazed upon X. Saurus or his kin. Science has reconstructed a skeleton which was unearthed in Montana. The rascal stands 19 feet, has six-inch teeth and jaws in which a man's body would crunch pleasantly. Like Chanticleer, our rooster friend who crows about it at this late day. Tyrarmo wears wicked claws that prove he "won his spurs" 7,000,000 years ago. which we're told is when he first swaggered up to the polls. . With mouth and head like a hippo, die most cavernous and massive; short fore-arms and hideous, scaly legs on which rears a mammoth, armor-plated body dragging a spike-tipped tail? Isn't he a perfect likeness of all that is represented" by his inhuman cousin, Kaiser Bill? Can't you see this fearful scourge sweeping down on a J harmless little beast like our Modem Monster swooped upon Belgium? / Doesn't he reek with the savagery that rips flesh from bone as Bloody Bill brutalized Serbia and ravaged Rumania? Well, since Tyrannosaurus, Rex. long of tyrant beasts. Tyrarmosanrus Wilhelm. Tyrant-beast of kings, are so similar in tactics and temperamdts, and have so much so many ways in common, let's do this: ^ i- -c T iruz ft wax repiica 01 * yidHnwnuiw ? ?-rr we can get the real thing?beside the Montana specimen ni die American Museum, and placard Bloody Bill's boney parts "A Modem Reincarnation of the Vilest Beast. Tyrranosanrus Rex!" o According to a dispatch to The Times telling of the. proceedings of the "War convention held In Charleston I j yesterday, "coordination of -war work was the trend of | ! the talk at the round table session" and "combining ( j of war activities either under the Council of Defense or under a war activifes committee along the same lines was advocated." The employment of the card index system of keeping records of the part being played by the people here at home also was "advocated strongly." West Virginals a long time getting around to that view point Almost a year ago this newspaper got a meeting of representative Marion county citizens to agree that this is the proper plan, but it never succeeded in get| ting any actual action along that line. We have wasted a year In Marion county and a lot of work that might j have been done permanently will have to be done all > over again. But it is not too late to make a proper | start even now, and when our delegates to the Charlesj ton meeting get home we hope to see the war work put i upon a -business basis without another day's unnecesi sary delay. o The war has flared up again on the Italian front and Austrian forces have been forced to retreat at many points. As compared with the fighting on the west front this is not a very important anair. out it. ?ui >= to increase the uneasiness in Austria. The East front may be gone, but there are other fronts -which are sufficiently vulnerable to make it impossible for the Germans to draw any great amount of aid from her allies. The activity in Italy and Macedonia is another illustration of the value of unity of command. o Much more interesting and convincing to the recipients even than the curt note of rejection sent by the American government in reply to t?e Burian peace proposal will be the reports sent by the German spies in this country regarding the way the American public received the Austrian proposition. There may have been a time when there was^a division of sympathy in this country, but that time is past, and all but an inconsiderable minority, which* dares not show how it feels, is for the instant rejection of any peace overtures which do not comply fully with the known peace terms of the American government. Unless the German agents in this country persist in the policy of misrepresentation, which was responsible for making the German.rulers , provoke the United States into a declaration of war, what they will have to say about the way the public reacted to the Burian note ought to put a stop to all further efforts to secure peace by negotiation. An investigation into the cost of living is to be made at Pittsburgh, according to dispatches from Washington. Except that a lot of good money will be spent nothing will come of this. What is needed is' not investigations, but a few long term jail sentences based upon the facts already known. pportunity for the About the middle of April the Tents south to stand by were pretty certain the earth and the fullness thereof was their own. ?

Briscoe at- Ripley, in 1875, | is worth recording. Br. Briscoe was i in a community where the Baptists ! were holding a meeting and frequently attended. The Baptists'stood up or i sat up in their pews doing prayer and Br. Briscoe considered this irrevelent. He was called upon to pray on this particular evening and his utterances were a; follows: "We bow in Thy presence, O. Lord! We kneel before Thee because Thy servant. Bavid. said "O come let us bow down, let us kneel before the Lord, our Maker." We kneel before Thee because Thy servant, the wise Solomon, when be dedictated the grandest temple ever built for Thee, kneeled down and prayed; We kneel, O God! because we want to follow the Blessed Jesus, who went out -on the mountain and kneled down and prayed ?~ His Father. We kneel because Jesus, when in the garden and the weight of the world's woes was upon Him and His soul was sorrowful even unto death went away a little from the disciples and knelt down and prayed. | sayinTi * ^"amer, u 11 oc yomuue, m this en ppass: nevertheless, not my will bnt Thine be done.'
