C. E WRIGHT, Hditor and Proprietor Published Kwrjr Friday Montpelier, Friday, June 27, 1919 GERMANY ACCEPTS For the first time In something like five years the German nation announces its determination to do a deed of which the whole world will It Is about to perform an approve. act much more to Its credit than any thing that la recorder In its recent infinitely more sensible history, than the series of monstrous thlugs by which In the summer of 1914 It set the earth to reeling and loosed the deluge of devastation and blood. It accepts unconditionally the terms prescribed for the punishment of its crimes. It may not be entirely con vinced of the justice of the verdict and the extent of the penalty, but it at least knows that It stands con victed and Is powerless to escape the consequences. It bows to the Inev itable—at last It has been overtaken by Its fate. At no time could there be any reasonable doubt that when the time came the Germans would have to sign the treaty, no matter how severe Its conditions were. They have made the utmost possible use of the op portunities to beg for modifications and to voice their protest. They have not been unduly hurried. They have based some hopes on the pos sibility of sowing discord among their conquerors, and have naturally rejoiced in every attack made upon the trbaty by those who should be Its friends. AU such attacks they have Inevitably construed as favor able to them—as the equivalent, in fact, of advice to tlem not to sign the treaty as prepared. But these were found upon examination to be futile hopes and false deductions. Whatever parllments, congress, or politicians may later have to say about the pact, the delegates at Paris are the parties with whom the Ger mans have to deal at present. There was nothing else to do but accept the terms as laid down before them at Versailles. They ought to be glad the long agony Is over. Now they can go to work, if they will, and rebuild their country on better and broader lines, and become a decent member of the family of nations. They cannot too soon begin beating their swords into plowshares, and forget all they ever knew about war and the making thereof. It has proved a deadly game for them, and their children will still be paying its costs for gen erations to come. But they need not be a nation wholly without hope. There Is forgiveness even for such as they. If they but truly repent, make restitution and bring forth the fruits that justify their entrance Into the brotherhood of the honorable and the free.—Deseret News. FRANK NEUERER GETS GOOD FEDERAI.

Battery manufactuers estimate that the average ■ car owner gets about two thirds of the service and life of ■ which his battery is capable," says Mr. 0. D. Anderson, J .local Willard Service Station Dealer. One of the reasons for this, according to Mr. An r derson is that the owner does not form regular habits J with regard to battery care. He will, for instance, add I water every week just as direciont say as long as his car ■ is new. But after he has been driving his car a while, he r begins to slip and adds it only every two weeks or every J three weeks, or perhaps even lets the battery go a month without attention. Fortunately a battery will stand an enormous lot of this neglect before the effects begin to shown, but they are sure to become apparent after a while. The only way to keep any battery in shape to give all the service it is capable of, is to add water at regular intervals just as long as youown your car. Then if you make hydrometer tests regularly, be sure that you are keeping the charge up where it ought to be. If you go to the battery service station the minute anything seems to be wrong, you can be fairly sure that your battery won't do the unexpected thing and go back on you just when you need it most. Moreover you can be certain that you are giving it the sort of treatment necessary to prolong j ■ 14fa ' r * i R : 1 J << JI r R *: ■ ■ R R ■ ■ " _ 5 R R R R R R ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Z Z pi r r r r r R I , • r! ■ ! 5 R !■ * Idaho Electric Co. r R * ■ Montpelier, Idaho Butter Wappers Printed on Short Notice s Perfection in Munsingwear Munsingwear suits for women and children in all sizes.
