RESULTS OF THE EULGAR DEBACLE.
The world is now 'witnessing, the beginning of
the final break-up of the Central Alliance as a
How rapidly the Austro-German collapse will
come no man can tell, but the period of ascend
encj' now reached by the allies will continue to
the end. ' sff
This summarizes the British official view of the
greatest week of the war.
For the first time since 1914, Germany finds
her front and rear caving in at the same time.
Events even more momentous than those of
the last few days lie just ahead.
Some predict that Rumania will rejoin the al
lies as a fighting nation. Constantinople will be
;aken, the Dardanelles opened, and the Black Sea,
for years known as "a German lake," will be con
quered. Austria will in all probability be invaded, and
an Austrian collapse will result.
Then will come the big smash into Germany,
svith American troops forming a. large part of
Marshal Foch's battering-ram. ,
Germany will doubtless make veritable host
ages of the Austrian people, keeping them in
subjection as long as possible.
A final and desperate peace offensive by Ger
many was certain to follow the Bulgar debacle.
Unrest is growing in Germany, but despite the
certainty of the kaiser's defeat most officials are
skeptical of any revolutionary movement in the
central empire succeeding. A splurge of democ
ratization of German governmental systems and
important changes in the government was to be
expected. The resignation of Hertling and Von
Payer are significant demonstrations of the po
litical upheaval that is to come in Hunland.. The
depression and hopelessness prevalent in Ger
many become more evident every day.
It will be increased by the answer which Pres
ident Wilson is certain to give the German chan
cellor. The allies are dubious of the sincerity of the
peace proposals. They recall Germany's lack of
faith in the past and they are convinced that
world safety can be only assured through un
conditional surrender by the central powers.
Meanwhile, they will continue pounding the
Hun on all sides until he is forced to follow the
course of Bulgaria.
The war may not end for a long time. But
visions of a German defeat are brighter than at
any time since August, 1914.
HOLD TO THE FACTS.
Since the entrance of the ; United States into
the world war, the cry has been to those at home
to give their encouragement to those who fight
to do their part in keeping up the morale of the
men at the front.
Today the people of Pensacola are on the fir
ing line. They need courage. They need faith, j
They need the fighting spirit. Unless the morale
of the fighting forces is maintained, we can not
win out over the conditions which we are facing.
There is not a man, woman or child in this
city who cannot help in this fight.
arp sirV and are unable to vet as-
.L41UUW AAV J V -- . C3
sistance, can do their part by reporting at once
to their district chairman, in-order that the dis
ease may be taken in hand at once. Those who
are well can do their part by giving their support
to the work that is eing done in Pensacola.
And everybody can help by refraining from
exaggeration of any kind. During the past few
days a number of reports of deaths of well-known
people have swept through the city, carried from
one to another and causing alarm where there
was no occasion.
The situation in Pensacola is bad enough at its
best. But if people .allow themselves to be swept,
into a frame of mindthat makes a fact of every
falsehood, the morale of the fighting forces will
be entirely disintegrated.
There is no one in Pensacola today who does
not realize the gravity of the situation we are
facing. There is no one who will not admit that
ie situation is bad at its best. But there is no
one who , can deny that the people are , aroused
to their civic responsibilities, and are making
every effort to check the spfead of influenza in
this section. ,
Going about and relating stories of the deaths
of people who are walking the streets of the city,
or who, having been ill, are on the road to recov
ery, does not help matters.
Fear is negative. Courage is positive. We
need all the courageous people who are willing, to
get into this fight and FIGHT. Anybody can go
out and talk. Anybody can stand on street cor
ners and detail horrors.
Let the man or the woman wh ois busy circu
lating false reports as to deaths and conditions,
spend their time helping to remedy conditions.
The place to report tragedies is to headquarters.
The place to tell harrowing stories is to your dis
trict chairman or to the central committee. The
thing to do is help work out this problem, and
build up the morale of the people of this city.
There was never a time when Pensacola so
needed men and women to work, to have faith, to
have courage, to have consecration to serviced
If you think conditions are bad in Pensacola,
don't spend your time talking about it, but do
something to correct it.
What is needed is work not talk. Nurses are
wanted. Help of all kinds is wanted. Get busy
and help. Don't stand idle and hinder by relat
ing sad stories and exaggerating things which
are bad enough at the best
'- A suggestion to Escambia county farmers : Do
you believe in dragging the road and your neigh
bors do not? Begin dragging your part right
now, keep it up faithfully, and your neighbors
will be won over by the example of your industry
and the good road it builds.
One of the curious facts brought to light in the
war is that only Tmwounded men suffer from shell
shock. Eminent surgeons say that a wound neu
tralizes the psychic sense in other words, that
nerves do not affect a wounded man in the same
way as an unwounded one.
The late Czar of Russia, before his deposition,
possessed a single etsate covering over 100,000,
000 acres that is, about three times the entire
area of England. ' "

Co-operation today is the most significant word
known to mankind. The principle has never had
such a demonstration in practice like that which
i3 represented in the League of Nations to de
stroy the vicious system represented in Kaiser
ism. Without co-operation by the civilized Na
tions, the world could not have hoped to escape
enslavement by Prussian autocracy.
The splendid examples of loyalty to country set
before us every day are lessons that will bear
fruit in the years to come. Loyalty demands co
operation of the people with one another and
with the government.
The loyalty given so freely to the Nation is in
a measure also due the State and community in
which we live. We should co-operate .with each
other and with our leaders in advancing the wel
fare of community, State and country.
The gunpowder of community interest lies
within each of us." The thing is to get the spark
to it. .

Watch the Little Pimples;
They are Nature's Warning
Unsightly and Disfiguring Sig
nals of Bad Blood.
Don't close your eyes to the warn
ing which nature gives when unsight
ly pimples appear on your face and
other parts of the body.
Not only are these pimples and
splotches disfiguring, but they lead to
serious skin diseases that spread and
cause the most discomforting irrita
tion and pain. Sometimes they fore
tell eczema, boils, blisters, scaly erup
tions and other annoyances that burn
like flames of fire, and make you feel
that your skin is ablaze.
When these symptoms appear on
any part of the body, take prompt
steps to rid the blood of these disor
ders. And the one remedy whic!
has no equal as a purifier is S. S. S.,
the purely vegetable blood medii
clhe, which has been on the market!
for more " than fifty years. It is soli
by druggists' everywhere.
If you are afflicted with any form
of skin disease do not expect to ba
cured by ; lotions, ointments, salve?,
and other, local remedies, as theyi
cannot possibly reach the source o(J
