IF PEACE SHOULD COME
Althougkit may be premature
to speculate on the possibility of
peace being consumated anyways
soou, still the action of Russia, and
added to this the utterances of Pre-
meir Loyd-George aud President
Wilson, ..have set many people to
wouderiug what would be the effect
on this, country should peace be'
This is a contingency we should
be always ready to -welcome. It
can work only good to s, and not
any harm. Those who pessimis
tically refer to "war profits" are
shortsighted indeed. Thebusinese
of the United States is in no sense
dependent on war profits. True
much of the uatiouaKeuergy is be
ing ppfe into war preparation, but

will welcome the opportunity to
transfer to the arts of peace,' TheBe.

We could stand a falbg off in
prices of all commodities jand be
the better off. We could also ben

have been swallowed up, an eleven
with the world at peace, it would
require years to reach the point
where the surpluses would mate
rially affect prices. This fact is
our guarantee that for a long time
to come the needs of the world will
call for our utmost exertions, and
at high prices.
The United Slates is-not 'only
the great creditor nation of the
world, it is also the supply depot
of the earth. All nations are now
looking to us for the implements
of peace as well as war. The war
has greatly enlarged the field of
our custom, because we have taken
the trade of many of the warring
countries, whose every energy is
being expended on war activities.
Our production and manufactures
in the arts of peace are far greater
today than ever before. .
Peace, if it can be had with hon
or, will be welcomed by every soul
in this country, because it will re
lease for the beueficient service of
mankind, prices that now are em
ployed in the arts of destruction.
It will take a generation' for our
greatest efforts to place us back
where where we were in 1914, as
far as concerns the available supply
of all the necessaries of life.

The kaiser is at the parting of

President Wilson's historic
words, warm with sympathy for
the democratic aims of Russia,
seem to be bolstering, up and in

that the virus of German intrigue

body politic of Russia.

PERSHING PRAISES MEN
In a recent communication to
Secretary of War Raker, the com
mander of the American expedi
tionary forces said:
"There has never been a similar
body of men to lead as clean lives
as our soldiers in France. . They
have entered this war with the
highest devotion to duty and with
no other, idea, than to perform
these, duties in most efficieut mau

The State of Tennessee is just
entering upon one of . the biggest
programs of 'road building in its
history. The many counties of
the. State are issuing, bonds for
new construction, the State has
funds available and the United
States Government has made ap
propriations which must be used
in the immediate future. Within
the next two years over three mil
lion dollars will be expended in
new construction and reconstruc
tion. A great many country newspa
pers have been forced to raise their
advertising and also job printing
rates in order to stay in busiuess.
Many others have raised their sub
scription price from a dollar and a
half to two dollars a year. It looks
now as though all country weeklies
would have to come to the two

Fuel Promoter Garfield urges
business men to economize by re
