We quote the following words from
[ the President's speech to the Senate
! on the occasion of breaking off nego'
tiations with the German government.
"Notwithstanding this unexpected
action of the German government,
this sudden and deeply deplorable re
ui us assurances, given
this government at one of the most
critical moments of tension in the
relations of the two governments, I
refuse to believe that it is the intention
of the German government to do
what they have warned us they
will feel at liberty to do, I can not
bring myself to believe that theywill
indeed pay no regard to the ancient
friendship between their people and
our own or to the solemn obligations,
which have been exchanged between
them and destroy American ships
and take the lives of American citizens
in the wilful prosecution of the
ruthless naval programme they have
announced their intention to adopt.
Only actual overt acts on their part
can make me believe it even now.
"If this inveterate confidence on
my part in the sobriety and prudent
foresight of their purpose should unhappily
prove unfounded; if Ameri
can snips and American lives should
in fact be sacrificed by their naval
commanders in heedless contravention
of the just and reasonable understanding
of international law, and
the obvious dictates of humanity I
shall take the liberty of coming again
before the congress to ask that authority
be given me to use any means
that may be necessary for the protection
of our seamen and our people
in the prosecution of their peaceful
and legitimate errands on the high
seas. I can do nothing less. I take
it for granted that all neutral governments
will take the same course.
"We do not desire a hostile conflict
with the imperial German government.
We are the sincere friends
of the German people and earnestly
desire to remain at peace with the
government which speaks for them.
We shall not believe that they are
hostile to us unless and until we are
obliged to believe it; and we purpose
nothing more than the reasonable
defense of the undoubted rights of
our peopl" "vve wish to serve no
selfish ends. We seek merelv t#i
I stand true alike in thought and in ac.
-tion to the immemorial principles of
our .people which I have sought to
I express in my address to the senate
J only two weeks ago?seek merely to
? vindicate our rights to liberty and
i justice and an unmolested life. These
J are the bases of peace, not war. God
? grant that we may not be challenged
I to defend them by acts of wilful inJ
justice on the part of the government
l of Germany."
{ It is doubtful if the principles upon
J which the American civilization rests
I have ever been better stated. It is inJ
conceivable that there should in all

The b?>U weevil has actually gotten
into Congress and would be a blessing
to the country if it were confined
there. Hon. Thomas Heflin, of Alabama,
made an enlightening speech in
Congress recently in which he asked
justice for the cotton planter in legislation
and in which he referred to the
boll weevil menace. Mr. Heflin said
the cotton crop would be small this
year and next on account of the boll
Some of the Eastern members were
favoring an embargo upon cotton, not
permitting the shipping of cotton out
of the country. Of course that would
be fine for the Eastern cotton mills.
Mr. Heflin reminded his hearers that
in 1914 when Southern Congressmen
were pleading for relief for cotton
planters on account of conditions created
by the war, Eastern Congressmen
said it was a situation over which
they had no control and that we
would have to grin and bear it.
HI- TT /! ?
mr. ileum explained that so far
nothing has been discovered that distroys
the boll weevil, but the Department
of Agriculture has found that
by certain cultural methods you can
produce some cotton under boll
weevil conditions. This is done by using
an early variety, planting early
and cultivating rapidly. If we have
wet weather in the cotton belt during
the months of July and August, it is
exceedingly difficult to produce any
cotton in the boll weevil section.
The boll weevil is spreading rapidly
and he will be in new territory this
year, and the farmer who produced
cotton last year may not be able to
produce any this year, but there is
one thing certain, if he will hold on
to the cotton that he now has he will
get a good price for it. 1 ite trouble
about that suggestion is, however,
that the cotton to a very large extent,
has passed out of the hands of the
planter and the higher price, to use a
slang expression, "cuts no ice with

Girl Writes
Mr. Editor:
Will you allow me apace in your
valuable paper to express my
thoughts on a subject in which I am
greatly interested?
It is my desire to assist in making
our land and country a better place
to live in every year. In last week's
paper I saw where our demonstration
agent, Miss Mims, is coming back
soon to begin with her year's work
among the girls and women of the
cuuniy. i was giau mueeu 10 near 01
her coming. I feel that by her instruction
we shall do greater things
in the year ahead than we did the
past year in our tomato club work.
I wish I could urge every girl in
our county to join us in our great
work this year, and demonstrate to
ourselves what we can do by raising

this college have decided that on account
of the lack of finances they
would not be in position to locate an
experimental station in Chesterfield
county at this time, but when they did
decide to locate it they would adver
tise the fact so that any and all
might make propositions who desire
to do so. We want the people of
Courthouse Township to keep this
matter in mind, as we intend to keep
after it until this station is located
somewhere in this county.

Ouch !?!?!! This kind of rough

people troubled with corns will follow
the simple advice of this Cincinnati
author, y, who claims that a few
drops of a drug called freezone when
applied to a tender, aching corn or
hardened callus stops soreness at
once, and soon the com or callus
dries up and lifts right off without
He says freezone dries immediately
and never inflames or even irritates
the surrounding skin. A small bottle
of frezonc will cost very little at any
drug store, but will positively remove
every hard or soft com or callus from
one's feet. Millions of American
women will welcome this announcement
since the inauguration of high
heels. If your druggist dosn't have
freezone tell him to order a small bot- ^
