There is no royal road before this country. We cannot legislate our difficulties away. We cannot have without creating. It we repu diate our moral obligations to the world we will more thoroughly discredit ourselves than did Bsssia when it repudiated its financial obligations. ; President Wilson is entirely right in point ing out the danger of losing at the polls every thing for which we fought and sacrificed dur ing the .war,' and the esteem of the World and our own self respect along with it. Our duty should be too obvious for any party to dare to ignore it. Patriots everywhere ought to get together, not for a party victory, but for an American victory. That is the only sure way to head off the demagogue, who never was more persuasive and more dangerous than now. .- from The Areas ot March 21. 130 The Arc ua henceforth will be conducted a an Independent newepaper, anbiiued by partuun tiea. er free and reauiy to ftlaie Ua bonret cunveuons tn Uu interest of the couunua weuare. The Dav of the Demagogue. ... President Wilson insists that the Demo ; cratic party shall stand unequivocally for rati fication of the League of Nations. As he sees It the supreme test in the coming presidential campaign is whether the American people shall keep faith with the world and with themselves, That they will do so if the Issue is clearly drawn, with a reasonable certainty that their Will, after being expressed, shall be carried out, hardly admits of doubt. They have not yet as a body parted with their common sense or surrendered their htfnor. The trouble is that the two great political parties, both recognizing in a general way the thing that should be done and that the people wanted done, have failed to make a common cause and do that thing. Instead they have split hairs in trying to create partisan capital. With the greatest piece of constructive work ever undertaken between nations before them for approval members of t!ie United States senate have tried to serve party before serving the public. They conceived that credit lor putting the thing over was the paramount thing. The Democrats developed one plan, the .'Republicans another, both to gain the same general ends and each stuck to its program to the bitter end. The will of the people, ex pressed clearly enough in a general way by the manner in which they backed the war, was disregarded. There is no present assurance that the same thing will not be done again. especially if party lines are drawn so fine upon unimportant reservations as to admit of doubt as to the meaning even after the votes are f. counted. In the confusion and doubt that arose out of the long.debate in the senate the demagogue saw his opportunity. He, at least, could frame up something that seemed concrete and un derstandable, and he did. He proposed to kick the whole thing to pieces and turn the hair- splitters out, incidentally turning himself in. The longer the senate talked the greater his following grew and now it is a serious factor, indeed. It is taking form in the backing .of w w Senator Johnson in the nation generally. It is coming to the surface in various states. Illi nois has the spectacle of Mayor Thompson of i Chicago forcing the Republicans to consider liig platform of glittering generalities, impos sible of fulfillment, including a demand for absolute withdrawal from participation in in ternational affairs. , Never was demagoguery so rampant as it I Is today. Never did it offer more with less chance of being able to deliver anything hut trouble. In general it denounces nroHtepHn - ,,. , as the sole cause of high costs, proposes that the war debt shall be paid by the rich alone and demands immediate withdrawal hv ih0 United States from international affairs. Its Selling to the Government. Manufacturers and dealers may have seen the time they were very glad to have a chance to bid on government work, and to furnish government supplies, but they're not so anx ious about it now. An officer in the ordnance department re cently wanted to buy something for Uncle Sam. He sent out notices inviting bids from 1,306 concerns. Two replies were received, both Im possible. To find the reason for the poor re sponse he wrote to all the 1,300 firms asking why they had not submitted bids and this, in substance, - is the answer he got from those who saw fit to take notice of his letter: "The government owes us too much money and won't pay it. We can't collect. We can't afford in these times of high-priced money to do work without getting the pay for it promptly. To tell the truth, we can't afTord to take your government's contracts. It is merely lending money to the government, and we are not in the money lending business." The government is good pay, but it is slow, and that is one of the reasons it has to put up a premium for many of the things it buys.

It will take more than a mild rebuke like that to make a good Indian of Mayor Bill. He'll never be a good one till he's a dead one and he won't be dead so long as he can keep his Chicago following in line. When Secretary Daniels gets through with Admiral Sims there won't be much more to be said on the subject. The fact that of the 11 high ranking naval officers in the navy Sims was the only one who did not approve of the way things were done and that the opinion of each of the other 10 was worth as much as his Is enough for the public to know about the controversy. It is a waste of time to go into further details. ADPT IT THE TRUTH! He carefully got off the car f And slowly limped away, .t., 1 His teeth clenched tight on his dtigar, f His features drawn and gray. Each time his left foot trod upon The brick's he grew more pale; But still he gamely struggled on This sore afflicted male. At last he reached his dwelling place And staggered through the door; Then, beads of sweat upon his face, He sank upon the floor. "Good heavens, John!" his wife intoned. Filled with a nameless dread, "What is it?" Poor John feebly moaned. "That darned soft corn," he said. At once his wife's concern and grief Gave place to deep disdain. She spoke with scorn (and some relief); "You men give me a pain! Just let a hammer hit your thumb , You've lost a hand, forsooth! In real pain a woman's dumbr" . L By hek, ain't it the truth?

It is stated that a Mexican woman at Montzuma recently gave birth to seven babes, and mother and the bunch are doing well. There were three girls and four boys, and the average weight was a little over two pounds. The mother is having a stren uous time and the father left home to become a soldier in Carranza's army.

It is strange how so few people acquire, prejudices against the natural or original food article and imagine it must have some mysterious "preparation" and be doled out in fancy packages be fore it Is fit to eat.

Billy had worked hard at the station, five minutes later than usual. Breathlessly, he walked down the aisle searching for the dainty brown-feather turbaned head. She was there! And the seat be side her was empty. Moreover, it was the only empty seat in that car. He hesitated a breathless second and then sat down beside her clutching at the chair arm as if for support For three, long min utes, he stared rigidly ahead, his uiuufiuii cnauic, nis Dram in a wnuii. Becoming calmer, he darpd a sidelong glance. His eyes met her serious brown ones and he blinked rapidly. A slow flush mounted to the roots of his hair and he quickly averted his eyes, seemingly becoming immense ly interested in his feet "Fares, please!" "Oh;" it was a startled gasp from the girl at Billy's side, "My tick ets! I'm afraid" "Can I p e r h a p s do o u think" Billy heard-himself fa'lter. "Thank you," she exclaimed with fervor. Billy passed two tickets to the Impatient conductor. "Thank you again, ever so much," murmured the fair damsel beside him. Billy nodded: he could not speak. For, at exactly the moment when the acquaintance should have be gun to develop when they should suddenly have discovered that they both adored the "movies" and hated lemon pie at exactly that preg nant moment, Billy remembered pad of paper and the metamor-' phis before mentioned took place. The girl saw him stiffen sudden ly and purse his lips in a determin ed line. He certainly did have a nice chin and nose. At that mo ment she discovered more about him than she had since she had first noticed him three months ago. She decided he was nice. But then her feminine perversity asserted itself, and she halted him furiously because he had obviously forgotten her existence. Billy at that moment was busy with ambition number one. The determination to tackle Sir Boss for his longed-for raise had at last oeen Dorn. The next day was Saturday. He would do it then! Back went pen cil and paper, and Billy indulged in rosy dreams. "Peculiar chap," speculated the bald-headed, elderly gentleman as he looked over the evening paper at the young man who covered in terminable sheets of paper with figures every evening. oaiuraay morning Billy ap proached the sacred precincts of the boss s office. "Well, Mason," said his boss. wnat s npT "Why-er," began Billy, conscious of the cold, calculating glance of the gray eyes. "I've worked here faithfully for five years.

He says he loves me and has asked me to marry him. I have not giv en him an answer because there is a young man of 20 whom I love more. He also wants me to marry him but wants me to wait two and a half years longer. I don't want to wait that long, and so which should I marry? DARK CURLS. If you marry for the sake of be ing married and not for love, you will regret it. Two and a half years is not too long to wait be cause yod are very young how. Dear Mrs. Thompson: I have been married two years. My hus band was a soldier boy at the time we were married and so I kept on with my work until the war was over. At that time we did not have enough money saved to buy furni ture. Anyway it seemed foolish to do so because bis mother had giv en up housekeeping and had ev erything we could possibly want and more too. We rented a little bouse and ev erything went line. His ' mother was rooming and so we had only each other to consider.' After a few mouths, though, his mother became dissatisfied and was so un happy that we said she might come into our home. She did this feladly. Now I can't do anything right She is afraid I will make a spot on the dining room table from hot dishes. I am really very careful and there - is no danger. She watches everything and if I put laundry in her old stocking bag she makes remarks about it I am made to feel all the time that the furniture is bers and I ought to show nncetsing gratitude for the privilege of using it I tm not grateful and I wish a thousand tmes a day that wo did not have one piece ot her furni ture. Aside from this 1 like her my ov.-n home. What 'an we do? HEURN H. There is nothing you can do ex cept to, buy the furniture from your mother-in-law or buy new furni ture ot your own. Doubtless this is out of the question. Expenses have been so high ever since the war that very few married couples una ii possible to save. You will have to learn to control your reelings and nerves. Accept your mother-in-law's remarks as you would a rainy day or a punc ture when you are out automobile riding. It is useless to rebel against the inevitable. Without a doubt you will find it easier to change yourself than to change her. You can be happy if you re gard her criticism as something un pleasant to be overlooked and for gotten. Dear Mrs. Thompson: I had the influenza for Jbe second time last winter and it left me thin and frail looking. Is there anything I can do to gain flesh? MRS. N. To gain flesh, take plenty ot olive oil, eat eggs, butter, cereals ana laity orotns, potatoes, peas, beans, torn, carrots and parsnips, figs, dates, nuts, bananas, under done beefsteak and roast beef. Drink plenty ot milk, cream and cocoa. Avoid food that will not digest easily, and be careful to masticate thoroughly what you do eat Give up pickles, vinegar and all acids. Exercise freely in the open air and take plenty of sleep. Don't fret or worry; this will keep one thin more than anything else.

Anril 4. visited Richmond. Anrii 9. returned to Wash ington. The country lawer in the White house, who never had set a squad ron in the field, turned at last the tide of battle when it had been run-! ning for two years against the Un ion. As Lee's army swept north ward, after smashing the federal forces at Chancellorsville, General Hooker, the union commander, pro posed to stay behind and take Richmond. Lincoln's common sense rejected that absurd plan and he ordered the army to fol low Lee. But after beating the confederates at Gettysburg, it let them retreat in safety, and the president impatiently exclaimed, "If I had gone there. I could have whipped them myself." The next day after Gettysburg, Grant took Vicksburg, and that was another victory which Lincoln made possible. He had stood by Grant, whom he never had seen, when that general had hardly an other supporter in Washington. "I cannot spare this man; he fights." The President expressed in these few words the great significance of the fall of Vicksburg: "The 'Fa ther of Waters' again goes unvexed to the sea." A few months after-1 ward he compressed the meaning of the whole mighty struggle into the few simple sentences of his noble Gettysburg address. After more victories by Grant pie was shaken in that summer of despair. He doubted if they would go on longer beneath the crushing' burden. A shudder ot horror ran through the laud at the frightful slaughter under Grant ia the Wilderness. "I cannot bear if the president said, as he turned his saddened face away from a long line of ambulances. Nevertheless he did not flinch in the midst of his campaign for reelection from malting the staggering demand for 500,000 more recruits. A confeder ate army bodily advanced within sight of The capital. A gold dol lar was worth in July 2.S5 in greenbacks. Under the thickening clonds In August, Lincoln sat down and wrote and sealed a forecast of his own defeat in the November elec tions and also his resolve to co operate with McCleilan, the Demo cratic candidate, as soon as the latter should have been elected. Equally certain that the president was in a losin? fight the Demo crats adopted a platform which de clared the war a failure and which called for peace by negotiation. But in two days more Sherman was in Atlanta and in two weeks more Sheridan won the battle of Winchester. The war was not a failure, and Lincoln was a success. Carryins all but three of the states that took part in the election, he could yet say in truth to the serenaders at the White house, "It is no pleasure to me to triumph over anyone." Victory in the war was to call, out the noblest qualities in the man. No sooner was he assured that the union was saved than peace and forgiveness became his ruling passion. In the hour of as sured victory he did not hesitate, for the sake of stopping the blood shed, to go ino the conference at Hampton Roads with the leaders of hte doomed confederacy. After his return frm.that fruitless pailey he wrote a message to congress, pro posing to pay the slaveholders $400,000,000 for their slaves if the south would only cease fighting. All the cabinet objecting, with a sigh he put the message in his drawer.
