COON, - Editor and Publisher Subscription - $1.50 Per Year , FRIDAY. MARCH 21, 1919. Some people say they won’t adver tise, as everyone knows where their stores are. Also everybody knows where the cemetery is, but they don’t feel inclined to go there. It was Corporal Manning who re ceived the distinguished service medal of the Rainbow division, conferred by Gen. Pershing as the highest award for American bravery, when over fifty dec orations were conferred in a recent re view of the division who are coming home April Ist. Ex-President Taft has performed a good service for his country in pointing ouit needed amendments to the propos ed league of nations constitution. Mr. Taft has been, and now is, a strong supporter of the proposed league, so anxious to see it accomplished that he has been slow in pointing out the de fects in the constitution as it now stands—defects with great possibilities of future harm, or even probabilities of laying the foundation of another great war.—Superior Telegram. The military terms decided upon for Germany by the Big Five Powers at the peace table will humble the great est single military power the world has ever known. They are as follows: Army shall consist of 100,000 volunteer men of the rank and file and a limited number of officers. All military air craft shall be surrendered or destroyed. The army shall not be equipped with artillery above the caliber of held guns; all artillery of greater bore shall be surrendered or destroyed. An allied mission will supervise the munitions plants to see that ammunition is not manufactured secrefcely. German forts along the Rhine must be destroyed, and the imperial general army staff abol ished. The world war is estimated to have killed 7,534,000 individuals. The world influenza epidemic is estimated to have killed 6,000,000. That is something remarkable. The horrors of war have been upon every tongue; the influenza, except to those families that were stricken, has been almost as much a subject of jest as of fear. The war has been spectular; advertised on every hand as a horror. The plague has been silent, unseen. Some 375,000 persons died of it in continental United States within sixty days. This is by estimate of the United States census bureau. In times past the world has stood aghast at the ravages of cholera, yellow fever, the bubonic plague, yet it is doubtful if in a thousand years ail these com bined had a ghastly harvest equaling in extent that of our present-day influ enza in a single twelvemonth!—Madi son Democrat. —Fancy weinere 4b. 18c. Pringle Bros. Cos. To the American who has sojourned on the other side it is apparent that all of Europe is economically dependent upon the United States. Without American food Great Britain would starve. Without American food Ger many did starve. Because of the em bargo on American food Norway and Sweden were compelled to join the allies in the blockade of Germany. France can eke out a bare existence without American food, but she must import both coal and iron. Italy must have coal and iron and food from America. Japan must import food and also steel. It was by an embargo on steel plates to Japan that Japan was compelled to turn shipping over to the allies in the last stages of the war. Russia contains all the resources need ed for her own industrial life and has an abundance for export, but Russia is in bloody revolution from which civili zation is not likely to emerge for one hundred years. During that time the United States of America is the only country which is entirely self-support ing, and it is the only country to which all the other great nations of the earth must look for some necessity. If this nation enters a league of nations it should enter with a consciousness of its decisive strength and with preserva tion of its necessary rights of self determination. If it does not do this it is Samson submitting to the shears. Later, blinded, it may have to push the pillars down; but why submit to the shearer and to the national tragedy?— Chicago Tribune. The war has been over, in effect, for four months. Governmental expendi tures attributed to war are greater to day than on the day the armistice was signed. The army of federal office holders has not begun to demobilize. Congress has continued to vote out bil lions of the people’s money as if money grew on trees. A national administra tion which teaches thrift to the people practices waste on such a scale as was never before imagined in history. New political schemes, involving vast addi tional appropriations, are sprouted. They are proposed in the names of so cial betterment, but they involve the impoverishment of the people and the bankruptcy of their government unless they are halted—a prospect made more remote by the postponement of the date of assembling a congress elected by the people partly in protest against the present administration’s program of expropriation and appropiiation. The greatest material, the greatest moral, the greatest patriotic issue of today is political extravagance and waste, reflected in abnormal living costs, taxes under which business en terprise is staggering, a currency de preciated in purchasing power, and a fear of the future which halts business enterprise. An effort is being made to divert the attention of the people from the situation, first, by the theory that ' everybody is going to be supported by the government under the new free dom, and, second, that a scheme of world reconstruction is under way which will bring peace and prosperity to man kind through the phrases of anew world constitution. Wanted— Four or five tons of good straw.—H. E. Peters. 18 Right now is the time to choose your new Rugs or Linoleums. The selec tions are at their best and the prices as cheap as they will be during the season. W e carry a big stock of room size Rugs. The prices range as follows: 9x12 Brussels Rugs - $19.75 up 9x12 Velvet Rugs - $24.50 up 9x12 Wool and Fibre Rugs $ 8.50 up § The Madison Journal very properly says: A jurist who on the bench has demonstrated his judicial fitness, and who came to the bench with proven worth as a lawyer, ought not at every lapse of term be compelled to go out and wage a political battle over the state for the maintenance of his job. Justice M. B. Rosenberry was a man of recognized ability as a lawyer when he came to the Supreme Court by ap pointment. He’s the kind that has built the prideful reputation of Wiscon sin’s highest court. He deserves to be re-elected without contest. A’FtHELYRIC They say that every family has its hidden skeleton—its something that is never spoken of, save with bated berath, but in Charles Ray’s family, or rather in liis picture, "‘The Family Skeleton,” showing at the Lyric tonight (Thursday,) this fam ily skeleton is only imaginary. The queer part of it all is that the hero suffers far more than if this trouble had been real. How the skeleton is laid by his sweetheart—played by Sylvia Bremer, is interestingly shown. Whac is described as the quaint est play of a quaint actress, “Sun shine Alley,” starring Mae Marsh, is the third Goldwyn Picture to be shown at the Lyric on Saturday. This, is a fine comedy drama, and should interest and amuse all, while teaching a great lesion of human kindness. Mitchell Lewis, who distinguished himself in “The Barrier” and sever al other pictures will, be seen on Monday in “The Code of the Yukon.” The story contains plenty of action and should please picture patrons who admire the French Canadian at mosphere and stories of the great Northwest. Mary Miles Min ter in “The Ghost of Ray Taylor” wall be the attract tion for Tuesday. A nationwide campaign is being conducted by the Red Cross for the purpose of collecting used clothing. The clothing is to be distributed among the people of Europe not in cluding those of the central powers. Locally the Red Cross rooms will be open on the afternoons of Tuesday, March 25th, and Thursday, March 27th. Someone will at that time be in charge of the rooms to care for the clothing which may be brought. Edgerton is urged to be as liberal as is usual in meeting her allotment in this campaign. —I have a client who would like to loan from ten to thirteen thousand dol lars on a good first farm mortar see. — i D. W. North. “Willson’s Our Grocer” Does This Mean Anything to You? ATTRACTIVE GROCERIES ntaintained in my store the same as in your kitchen.
