WHAT WE MUST DO!
"* I A farmer boy once went to town. In time he graduated from a business college and finally became a bank clerk. And in due time he became cashier and finally pre-i<lent of this bank.

At this answer, which was deliv ered with the most complete sim plicity of manner, the spectators tittered, and the little Judge smiled, and Serjeant Bu;fuz looked partic ularly foolish. After a short con sultation with Itodson and Fog*, the learned Serjeant again turned towards Sam, and said, with a painful effort to conceal his vex atlon, "Nov, Mr. Weller. 11l ask you a question on another point. If you please." "If you please, sir." rejoined Sam. with the utmost good-humor. "Do you remember going up to Mrs Rardell'i house, one night In November last?"

Mr. Weller?" said Serjeant Ruzfuz, looking know ingly at the Jury. "I went up to pay the rent; but we did get a talkln' about the trial," replied Sam. "Oh. yoti did get a-talklng about the trial." said Serjeant ltuzfuz, brightening up with the anticipa tion of some Important discovery. "Now, what passed about the trial: will you have the goodness to tell us. Mr. Weller?" "Vlth all the pleasure In life, sir." replied Sam. "Arter a few unimportant observations from the two wlrtuous females as has been examined here today, the ladles gets Into a very great state o' ad miration at the honourable conduct of Mr Dodson and Fogg—them two genTrnen as 1s settln' near you now." This, of course, drew gen eral attention to Dodson and Fogg, who looked as virtuous as possible. "The attorneys for the plaintiff," said Mr. Serjeant Bazfuz. "Well! They spoke In high praise of the honourable conduct of Messrs Dodson and Fogg, the attorneys for the plaintiff, did they?" "Yes," said Sam. "they said what a wery gen'rous thing It was o' them to have taken up the case on spec, and to charge nothing at all for costs, unless they got 'em out of Mr. I'lckwick." At this very unexpected reply, the spectators tittered again, and Jtodson and Fogg, turning very red. leant over to Serjeant Buzfuz. and In a hurried manner whispered something in his ear.

An anxious quarter of an hour elapsed; the Jury came back; the Judge was fetched In. "Gentlemen," said the Individual In black. "ar<- you all agreed upon your verdict?"

Then came Bevo — a cereal beverage, not a "near-beer," but offered purely for what it is — a delightful, wholesome and nutritious drink. Bevo met with instant and complete success. A whirlwind success. Owing to Bevo's popularity, some beverages are now being offered in a way to make the appearance of the package look as much like the Bevo bottle as possible. The intention is obvious. But you don't taste the shape of a bottle —it's the flavor of the contents of the bottle that you must depend upon for enjoyment. Then beware of impersonators — don't be satisfied to try to identify Bevo by the shape of the bottle alone — There are these certain identification marks that are your protection against imitations. Not just imitations of the product, remember—but those more insinuating imitations which try to deceive you by putting . an old failure into a bottle similar to a new success. So look for these unmistakable marks of the genuine Bevo—demand that the bottle be opened in front of you, then— yf Look for the Seal — |n& \ yFV * See that it is unbroken covering the Crown Top mSkMM YJft M Look at the Crown Top, and tea that it bears the Fox Be sure the Bottle bears this Ml Bevo is a pure drink.

We will have a hard surface military highway, wiffc motor trucks and armored cars, that will enable troops quick ly to be massed from San Diego to Seattle. That doubtless means universal jnilitary service, a million men kept in training, and two million more kept iri reserve. It means that we will do what Holland does today with her 600,000 men under arms on her s<ant borders; what Switzerland does on her short boundaries. It means that we atr to wake up to the fact that we have moved from the farm to the city, arid that in the city they have bank* and policemen; jewelry store# and burglars; treasure vaults and burglar alarm systems; sewers and septic tanks and motorcycle cops; and that hogs and chickens do not live with the family. Maybe the country is the ideal place to reside, but the Pacific coast is no longer a suburb, it is a strategic spot, the last one left, when this war is over, in the world. So, seeing these thinps in the future, and knowing that this nation, and especially its Western commonwealths, f»s forever departed from the pastoral aj<e. THh STAR I'EELS THAT THE HK. JOB IS TO M.I THAT THIS CITIZEN ARMY BE AN ARMY OP DKMOf RACY, WHERE EACH MAN* <JETS A SQUARE DEAL. AN EQUAL CHANCE OF ADVANCEMENT, AND PAIR PLAY. It is highly important that our millions be sj*ut wisely; that political pull and private tfreed have no voice in the al lotment of contracts. » It is highly important that ALL the people of the West understand the world w«>rk ahead, and that /very last high private in the rear rank know that lie is doing his hit for his country, and that no man on earth is going to be allowed to use him for private gain. And to bring this program into effectiveness there must be at the head of things executives of the people; democratic not party democrats- leaders who feel with the people, who understand world problems, AND WHO CAN TRANSLAT K THEIR KNOWLEDGE TO THEIR FELLOW CITIZENS. For their brief hour let the earnest and ignorant Pacific pacifist play their little play; meantime let true patriots pre pare for the program that ahead, and see to it that greed, graft and political prostitutes do not ensnare the bird of free dom. Throw out the patriots for profit and install the men who understand the job that must be done, and who intend, with all their minds and might, to do it well.
