LET FOCll ARRANCW ARMISTICE.
President Wilson's reply to the sec
ond German proposal for an armisticc
meets with the hearty approval of the
American people and their Allies. The
ublic was not so certain that it was
in accord with the president's first re
ply, for it appeared to be too mild for
a people who have been guilty of com
mitting the most horrible atrocities
the world has ever known. From the
President's first reply, one might have
construed him to mean that the armis
tice could he secured if the Germans
gave tluir consent to remove tlulr
armies from invaded territory. The
Iluns were ns quick aa lightning to
inclining and immediately
came b.vk with a reply that the Ger
man people were willing to accent
practically the same peace that Presi-

dent Wilson outlined in his address to
congress on Jan. 8, and asked for a
mixed commission to arrange for the
removal of the German troops back
onto German territory. This would
have been fine business for the Hum.
Their leaders see that their army is
being whipped unmercifully and if the
grout buttle goes on a few weeks
longer, the vast German army is apt
to be practically annihilated. Of
course thoy want a chance to get back
onto German territory where their
line will be shortened and where their
nion can get a breathing spell while
the Iluns arrange for another attack.
Germany has demonstrated that she
wants peace, but that she wants to
do the dictating. This is the first
time in history where a vanquished
'army hns had the audacity to ask to
assist in arranging the terms of
President Wilson was quick to per
ceive the hole the Kaiser was attempt
ing to lead the Allle3 into and ho came
back with a mighty plain statement
that even the Kaiser can not misun
derstand, The president told the
Kaiser that the United States and the
Allies would "dictate the terms of
peace lie rejected the German idea
of a mixed commission to arrange for
the evacuation of invaded territory,
lie informed Berlin that the conditions
of evacuation and the granting of an
armistice would be determined by
Marshal Foch and his associate gen
erals. There can be no armistice ex
cept on terms that .assure the United
States and the Allies of the mainten
ance of their present military suprem
acy over Germany, a supremacy
which must be relied upon to enforcee
the Allied terms of peace. In other
words, the Huns must surrender com
pletely and before any mercy can be
shown to them they must quit their
numerous atrocities, which are too
numerous to mention.
No wonder that Germany became
excited whan this note was received.
Little wonder that a panic broke out
in banking circles in Berlin and an
order given for the German supreme:
command to assemble in Berlin to de
liberate upon the mobilization, the!
concentration of the national strength]
and the raising of the military age.!
The war may have to be fought for
another year, but we had better keep
on fighting for ten years than to quit
before the right kind of peace for the
entire world is secured. When the
Allies give the Germans an armis
tice, it will be after the Kaiser has
stepped down and out, or after he has
been jerked off his thror.e bodily.
A FOURTH L1UERTY BOND.
No home should be without a Fourth
Liberty Bond. These bonds, during
and after the war, will bring inereas
ing joy and pride to their possessors.
When you purchase one of these
bonds, keep It. Do not part with it
for any reason.
These bonds will be prized by their
original purchasers and holders like
well tried battle swords and medals
A eitizen who saves and economizes
to pay for and possess one of these
"bonds. truly aids as does the soldier
opon the battlefield, to break the at
tack of the Hun upon the citadels of
Liberty and Freedom.

We don't faacy the nickname

they are the flour of our youth and
have good sticking qualities, are
doughty lads well able to batter the

still there's something soggy about

The pay of the Hun soldier has been

is skiddooing all right, all right.
Of the many benefits which will
come out of the horrors of war, will
be a greatly increased appreciation of
the national value of good health.
