NO COMPROMISE THERE CAN BE BUT ONE ISSUE ; THE SETTLEMENT MUST BE FINAL. THERE CAN BE NO COMPROMISE. NO HALFWAY DECISION WOULD BE TOLERABLE. NO HALF WAY DECISION IS CONCEIVABLE From President Wilson's Mount Vernon address. M Mtt M M A TIMELY PETITION I've come, Lord, to apologize Upon my bended knees, And humbly ask thct you'll shut off Them heavenly faucets please! I know it's what we prayed fer, but We didn't calkilate That you was goin' to send it down So hard and fast and straight. You see, it looked as if a drought Had really come to stay. It scared us so from north to south We jest flopped down to pray. We knew thet you was workin'. Lord For all thet you was worth. And feared thet mebbe you'd forgot Our portion o' the earth. So when I begged fer rain, dear Lord I didn't mean no harm ; I never thought, to punish me, Thet you would nxd the farm. The levee's nigh to bustin now ; There'll be no sign o' crop; I'll never raise the mortgage, Lord, If this here rain don't stop. The pasture's under water. Lord; The stock is swimmin' 'round, And not an acre on the ranch Can show a patch of ground. The country road is all caved in ; The creek's too high to ford---We'll roost in treetops if you don't Shut off them faucets, Lord! We oughtn't to have interfered ; We needed this rebuff; But don't you think by this time, Lord, Thet we have had enough? Oh, chase them clouds from out the sky ! Let loose the sun, and then Jest run this earth to suit yourself Forevermore. Amen !

We are going at top speed now airplanes, ammunition, food, transport, man-power and men-of-war. We muxt keep going at this speed until our drive overwhelms the enemy, breaks down his resistance, destroys his armies and ex tirpates his military despotism. The more speed the sooner the end will be reached. To keep up this speed we must provide the sinews of war .fG,000.()(0,000 for endurance. Have you given to the limit ? Have you proved your patriotism. SPANISH INFLUENZA With cases of Spanish influenza reported not very distant and the possibility that it might break out anywhere, every precaution should be taken to prevent it. or at least stamp it out. in its in cimencv. The disease is not otten tatal. 1 he chiet danger is that unless nromntlv and rierhtlv treated it mav develop pneumonia. That is the danger to be guarded against. The svmntoms of the disease are like those of an ordinary cold in the head, accompanied by a tickling sensation in the throat, sneez ing, chills and fever. Anv one having those svmptoms should at once go home, go to bed and send for a doctor, lie should go home so as to avoid spread ing the micro-organism of the inriuenza. by coughing or spitting in public places, lie should go to bed so as to keep himself warm and restful, lie should send for a doctor so as to get expert advice as to treatment and cure. In the east special warning is given to be care ful during convalescence. There is no occasion for alarm or anxiety; but there are abun dant reasons for carefulness. Eastern authorities give us advice founded upon their experience. If we follow it we will profit by it and suffer little from the pandemic. If Ave do not follow it we will have to learn from experience ourselves. Candidate for JUSTICE OF THE PEACE Ormsby County, Nev- t W. P. HARRINGTON (Incumbent) Democratic candidate for ?

HUNTING PROMPTLY CALLED DOWN The German kaiser's threat to execute all American soldiers captured with shotguns was very promptly called by Secretary of State Lansing, who stated in his reply that for every prisoner shot or killed, reprisals would be demanded, and with the holding of probably twenty Germans for every American that is confined within Teutonic prison camps we have undoubtedly got much the best of the situation. The retaliation threatened is of course repulsive to the Ameri can code, and outside the pale of the Hague articles, but if it is fol lowed it must be remembered that the Central Powers have set the pace and if they are beaten at their own game, as they will be in every instance, the results are ot their own making Non-Partisan candidate for STATE SUPERINTENDENT OF SCHOOLS General Election, November 5, 1918 General llorne was the first British commander to butt a hole in the Ilindcnburg line.

New York Chronicle. fpp GEORGE BRODIGAN ''DEMOCRAT, FOR SECRETARY OF STATE CHARLES L. DEADY Democratic candidate for SURVEYOR GENERAL General Election, November 5, 1918 Vote for Him 'Vote for Him The protest of the German government, submitted through the j J- Swiss charge ad interim, is as follows: . The German government protests against the use of shotguns by the American army and calls attention to the fact that according to law of war (Kriegsrecht) every prisoner of war found to have in bis possession such guns or ammunition belonging thereto, forfeits his life. This pro test is based upon Article 23 (E) of The Hague convention respecting laws arid customs of war on land. Reply by cable is required before October 1, 1918. Secretary Lansing's reply to the German note on the subject is as follows: In reply to the German protest, the government of the United States has to say that the provision of The Hague convention, cited in the pro test, does not, in its opinion, forbid the use of this kind of weapon. j Moreover, in view of the history of the shotgun as a weapon of war fare, and in view of the well known effect of its present use, and in the light of a comparison of it with other weapons approved in warfare, the shotgun now in use by the American army cannot be the subject of legitimate or reasonable protest. - The government of the United States notes the threat of the Ger man government to execute every prisoner of war found to have in his possession shotguns or shotgun ammunition. Notwithstanding this threat inasmuch as the weapon is lawful and may be rightfully used, its use will not be abandoned by the American army. Moreover, if the German government should carry out its threat in a single instance, it will be the right and duty of the government of the United States to make such reprisals as will best protect the American forces, and notice is hereby given of the intention of the government of the United States to make such reprisals. oo EVERY DOLLAR IN THIS LOAN MEANS SAVING OF TIME AND LIVES BY SHORTENING THE WAR WILLIAM A.

On the Western and Eastern fronts the Allies are driving the Ger mans today- The Germans are not driving us. On the home front if we put as much vim and vigor into our drive for money as the boys at the Western and Eastern fronts are putting into theirs it will not be long before our victorious armies march into lierlin. Our part is to provide the funds. War is not all simply a matter of men, or of courage, or even of loyal devotion. There's money back of every gun, and without money not one flying machine can be built to go over there and drop bombs upon the Germans who are killing our boys. We're the richest nation in the world today, and therefore we have of all nations the most at stake. If we win, we win enormously; were we to fail it would be incalculably disastrous- If the need comes, we'll pour out our money again and again and again, till every cent we ever had or ever hope to have has gone to work to fight for the flag we love and idolize.
