I believe in the United States of America as a government of the people, bp the people, for the pcoplci whose i just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; ^ democracy in a republic, a sovereign Nation of many | sovereign States; a perfect Union, one and inseparable, KgesUiEBshed upon those principles of freedom, equality, jusit dee, and humanity for winch American patriots sacrificed | that lives and fortunes.

It is clear that he has t die part he must play in the great human drama tdy out in advance and that he Knows what he to attain and will not permit himself to be swerved n? objective by the blandishments of the Berlin rets. There is to be no inconclusive peace. The j es that have been made in the name of humanity man liberty were not made in vain. When the States and the nations associated with us in the pan- German autocracy lay down their arms the will in full truth be safe for democracy. r long the war will continue now that the greatest 1 offensive of die foe has ended in Complete defeat In b> sent.

' The men who were drafted by Chairman Lively for this labor of patriotism, which for many of them Is performed at considerable personal sacrifice, probably bad taken all they can cany early. The best they can offer at this staggSt to cany die message of die need of the government to the men and women who have not yet grasped the real situation- Therefore all they call upon I should give diem a cordial reception. They are working for die common cause, in die interest of die highest possible efficiency of the spear head which-we have placed in France. That spear head is not paying any attention to die peace intrigues of the arch hypocrites at Berlin, and die time is going to come when the men over there will inquire why we at home did. It is die duty of the President and die government at Washington to pay cakeful attention to every diplomatic move that Germany makes. That is one of die most important details of the President's job. But it is no part of die job of the army or of die people back home. They must see to it that until the government gives the Word to quit not one bit of die pressure upoi$ the foe be relaxed. o A SLACKER CITY. NE hundred and fifty men are needed at the new! government plant which is to be built just below the city. Practically every industry here needs men. Empolyers who are familiar with local conditions say there are enough idle men in die city to make a wonderful improvement in the situation, if not fulfill every ^ demand, and that this would speedily be proved if a sincere effort were made to comb out the work slackers. / In the face of a situation like this the city authorities permit gambling dens to run wide open'all over the central part of the town and the loafers can be spotted in every block any nice afternoon. Isn't it about time that something be'done about this? Fairmont as a city is not "carrying on;" it is not doing its duty by the country in the most critical time in more than half a century. o GERMAN ARMY IN BAD WAY. A S late as the middle of last week Frank Simonds. * * Americas best miktary commentator, was or the opinion that a campaign next year would be necessary to end the war. but it was apparent that his deductions were made entirely upon the basis of the map. It is beginning to seem as if the really vital factor is the condition of the Geiman armies and to appear probable that if Marshal Foch continues to hammer away with die same brilliancy during the few weeks of campaigning weather that remain the German effort to quibble over peace terms will operate diametrically to their hopes and that what few military men would have dated to hope for a few weeks ago?a military disaster?will overtake them. Something is seriously wrong with the German military machine. It is making poor headway with the work of getting free firom the traps-that Foch has been preparing for it. It is maintaining its lines, to be sure, but it is losing vast quantities of material and it does not seem to be fighting with the vim that it ought to show. If the real trouble is that it has lost its heart, worse days are ahead for it, for when it becomes generally known on the German front what Herr Solf said in the reply to President Wilson something resembling demoralization is bound to occur. On top of all that there are signs that'whatever political scheme has been Datchcd un at Berlin will not hold. With disaster for a daily companion on the fighting front and the possibility of chaos at home Germany is in a bad way. President Wilson has 6et the stage for Honhenzollernism to go out in a blaze of glory. But it is perhaps too much to expect that Wilhelm would have the vision to step down willingly for himself and his family. Scarcely second in importance to the note to Germany was President Wilson's formal appeal to the American people to subscribe to the Fourth Liberty loan. It is important for its effect upon the minds of the German people almost as sure as for its effect as support of the army in France that this loan be oversubscribed. And yet It has barely passed the half way point and there are but a few more days'to go. o The suggestion that the process of evacuation and the conditions of an armistice must be left to the judgment and the advice or the military advisers of the government will strike the responsible commanders of the German armies with all the joy the receipt of a bow string must have inspired In the hearts of the favorites of the Sultains in the days of Turkish might. There is no place in all the world where a Prussian can hide from the just wrath of jm outraged world. o One of the most Interesting paragraphs in the reply Is that one In which it is indicated that there will be a separate reply to "the royal and imperial government of Austro-Hungary." It may be that Austro-Hungary will have shown to it a nice smooth road out of the whole muss which will free it from all former foes, including Prussia. o it is an very -well ror tne city to prepare to stana a siege of the Influenza, but the public mind should not permit itself to become depressed over the thought that there will be an epidemic of It here. Take every possible precaution to keep yourself fit and free from contact and then keep as busy as possible with useful work. -Everybody does not take influenza even when theer Is an epidemic and the number of deaths Is very small In proportion to- the number of cases.

As grandmother and grandfather first went to housekeeping in a small log-cabin many miles from anyone else. It had been more of a task of memory-love than anything else, which caused them to fashion much, in their first really * ?Trtsra mo a era aumc, uui vi which grandfather himself had carried and built into that first nest and which later he had taken down and carried, every piece to the new homfe. We don't use scraps nowadays, but instead we throw them away. After we throw them away, we pay some one to take them where we can't ever see hem again. We have long discarded the big attic full of old-fashioned finery and outgrown clothes?and hats | twenty years old! We haven't much i of the quaint old-fashioned furniture | left and many of us have even dis- j carded the odd, pretty spinning wheal which used to occupy a prominent place in the sitting-room This?until very recently?has not been the day for saving and u'J<2lng everything. Did you ever notice that ages live themselves over again? -Someone once said?"Save the dress you discard seven years and it will be in style again." which is literally ture in many cases. At present we are beginning to save many things which we find have a good use. We wouldn't have thought peach stones couid possibly have any use?a year ago. Now we know they can be made into a purifying carbon for gas masks. We have learned that old newspapers can be made into waxed tapers good for lighting fires or for warming cups of coffee or tea. We know that every scrap of food saved, means that much left over lor our soiaiers. we ?e icuuod the value o? wheat. We found out that corn-meal wasg ood. We got on speaking terms with rye and buckwheat and barley and rice flour. We even found out that com flour was not made for sinking purposes and after we had learn 11 the trick, could combine it with something else an<^ prepare a very good dish. Just now we have discovered that all the tin and platinum we discard mean3 a disloyality to the goernment. Did you know that in 1917 we used seventy-one million, and over, long tons of virgin tin? This is over hal the supply of the world. Tin is to be found in all parts of the world though most of it is found in the Straits Settlements. Eoliia has a great deal. Then comes the Dutch possessions in Java. Tin is also found In China, Australia, Cornwall and in South Africa. We could not have steamers or railroads if It wasn't for tin. Neither can we carry on the war without it. Our tin comes from across the ocean and now to avoid submarine difficulties it comes by way of the OUTBURSTS OF (BY C< frVHAX You GOT YOUR ~t> Tiex> u*9 "DO You Vo T?A ?

In this way J the tin will be recovered and the Red J Cross will also have an added income. s The Board of, War Industries says 1 we lack about five thousand tons of tin. 75 per cent of the tin used at _ present is used for military purposes, 1 directly or Indirectly. The other 25 a per cent is used for the most important civilian purposes.
