On the first page of tbe paper will be
found an address on Philippine inde
pendence delivered by Congressman Gar
rett io the House of Representatives. It
will be seen from this that Mr. Garrett,
a man of very sound opinion and con
viction, is in line with the policy of the
National Administration on this question.-
He seems to be following tbe
footsteps of tbe late lamented Senator
Carmack, who led the fight in the Sen
ate some years ago for the independence
of the Philippines in one of the most
aggressive and brilliant records ever
made in the Senate. Mr. Garrett dis
poses of the Republican theory that the
United States cannot honorably retire
from the inlands in a very clear and con
vincing way, and bis remarks seem to
have caught tbe ear of tbe House with
lome deep-rooted thought. He studies
bis subjects and is generally on firm
ground when be gets up to speak. Tbe
Ninth District takes considerable pride
n Mr. Garrett's work.

Virginia Goes Dry.
What is this startling news they print?

You've Got It
When you're all choked up and your

And a thousand cures you re told to
When your head feels like it's all stove
And you only cry when you try to grin.
When you long to take a gun and blow
Your brains out don't care where you
When your throat is sore and your eyes
are dim
Ana your neau aotu roar ana you ve
got no vim.
hen you feel the daises soon must
So sadly o'er your new made grave.
WThen ev'ry time you heave a cough
It nearly takes your blamed bead off,
When lifo looks black and those you
Eye you with pity on the street.
When the war in Europe can go hang
And the world series has no more tang.
When you cling to a jug of whiskey like
A beginner clings to his wabbling bike.
When you bate to die, yet foar to live,
And drug stores you your money give.
When you .feel like Fate has mashed
you flat,
Till you don't know where on earth
you're at
