LARGEST CIRCULA IlON IN THE COUNTY! THE WAK CRIMINALS It must be plain to everybody that the German courts will not mete out adequate punishment to those Ger man army officers who were accus ed of brutal and unwarranted meth ods during the world war. A score or more of officers have been tried, ranging in rank from major down to sergeant. There have been only two or three convictions,and in the-e cases only nominal sentences have been imposed. Coming at this time, when the world has been wanting to believe that Germany would act in good faith in carrying out the paece term this is more than ever unfortunate. It will delay for a longer period of time the feeling of forgiveness if one of forgetfulness which is so bad ly needed. The world will always believe that German officials caused the war, hut there has been a general hope that the German people will suffer from it for generations to come,. It is a pit/ that this is true bu*. it is A NEW MONEY CKOl The potato bids lair to soon be come an important money crop for the south. Modern warehouses en able the farmers to keep their pota toes in prime condition long aftei they ni\e nren taken from the giound, while the co-cperative mar keting associations assure stable maikets at fair prices. Sweet potatoes are grown to a lim ited extent only ir the north and west and east, and even where it h growl, the qua'ity is inferior. The sweet potato only reaches per lection in tne south, and people o^ other sections of the country as a rule know little or nothing of it. That sweet potatoes grow :n pop* ularity wherever they have been in troduced has been proven time and again. The supply never exceeds the dema"'* Ali i that i:- needed ’-o make tin nj.rMt p.»i iw ofifc >r ‘he '•rwipat £££»* ,■ ,f.- sot> ' V. -CT^.aknwftpr or education, no to ; ak, in order to acqua. . .people w olner parti* of the country with its many merits as an article of food, and then the establishment of an adequate sj stem of marketing and distribution. These things can be" done, and they will be done. Southern farm ers are beginning to Realize their possibilties. They can do with their sweet po tatoes just what the people of Cali fornia have done with their oranges1 and lemons, and what the people of Oregon have done with their apples. And they won’t be long about It, either. THE I)EV1L Modern people have taken their conception of a personal Satan not from The Book but from a book, “Dante’s Inferno,” says Rev. W. L. Munhall, the noted Bible scholar. It was the thirteenth century poet who created a personage dressed in red, with horns, hoofs, a forked tail and a pitchfork—“a comic opera devil which the world has never takci serioua%'.” And to the same source the scho lar attributes the idea of Hell as a place of fiery lakes and hissing cal drons in the midst of which lost souls tossed in torment while demons leap ed and shouted in the horred glare. Both these ideas are designated as crude conception emanating from these only then emerging from the Dark ages. But this does not mean that Dr. Munhall does not believe in a per sonal Devil. On the contrary he says one exists "as certainly as there is a personal God. There is as much reason for believing in one as in the ether. The Bible always speaks of the Devil as a person. One cannot read the account of the tem ptation of our first patent's and rea sonably describe it to evil natures K. 1 was not then .n tne world, a iy thi evil one.’ As for Hell, says the writer, “A certain as there is a Heaven for good people, there, is a Hell for bad people. If there is no future account ing an punishment for the deed done in the body, then the deserving least punishment will suffer most, whi'c the one deserving of most punish ment will suffer least, if at all." It i* a good plan to believe in a personal Devil, a* well as in a per sonal (iod. Fear of the one may help us toward right living <|uite as much as love of the other, f’eopie who believe in the Devil, and live j up to their belief, are apt to feel ra | ther safe as to the future. THK WAV OF IT The United States won the war within about eighteen months after getting into it. We have piddled and meddled a Kng ever since, trying to make ! peace, and have not yet succeeded. ; Does anybody doubt that better progress would be made if the poli ticians at Washington would thivw up the job ami turn it over to the soldiers ? A HOY FARMER’S RECORD Don Milley, a Florida fanner boy, won the corn contest in that state in 1920. He sue eded in producing 101.7 bushels of com on one acre at eo.-t of 20 cents ner bushel. Some of the eld fellows, who com plain that they have to sell farm products below the cost jf produc tion wou'd do well to go see this Florida boy and get his secret as to beep expenses down. I!'
