Th U. S. War Industries Board, has issued an order forbidding publishers continuing subscription after date of aspiration, unless subscriptions ara renewed and paid for.

These subscriptions will now have to be discontinued under the new law. If you want the paper continued to you, send in your renewal subscription before your time expires. Any er jneous reflection upon the character, standing or repuation of any person, firm or corporation which may appear In the columns of this paper will be glady cor rected if brought to the attention of the editor. The more "German intrigue in thia country is studied, the easier it is to understand why Germany committed Buicide. Tough old Major Half-and-Half enjoys his annual bout with the house appropriations committee. It keeps him J i a ni i That long-advertised terrorist outbreak in Berlin is long in coming, but we still have hopes that the Germans will decide that it is best to kill one another off. The Dutch ministers of state need Wt bother about the disposal of the Hohenzollerns. If they keep Wilhelmina's crown on straight, they will be doing well. France and England have a bill of $100,000,000,000 against Germany. If this is not enough to keep the boche at work for the rest of his life, a dozen other allies will put in their little claims. Interesting things will be heard from the Presidenl who has sailed away, violently criticised because he crosses the ocean to look after United States business more important than any here at home. His most in teresting utterance will concern the fate that the kaiser deserves. The allies are waiting to hear what Woodrow Wilson will say should be done to the German emperor ALLIES MUST AID RUSSIA. With the exception of sending a few companies from Canada there is apparently no move on the part of the allied governments to increase the forces that are bat tling for the salvation of Russia. Possibly the allies are perfecting plans which have not yet been revealed; but the public can judge only by what is known, and the situation as it appears on the surface is grave indeed. Calls for assistance have been sent out by the Czecho slovak military leaders who control the Transsiberian railroad, but these calls seem to be unheeded. Presum ably President Masaryk, of Bohemia, who has just ar rived in Paris from Washington, will lay before France and England the desperate straits of the pro-ally forces in Russia and the necessity of immediate assistance if jthe bolsheviki are to be prevented from destroying Rus sia an dthe Russians. The small force of Americans in Siberia is worth little or nothing. The United States might as well have kept out. It is not contributing to the pacification of Russia, but rather to the prolongation of disorder, by sending an insufficient and "contemptible army." The bolsheviki will impress upon the Russian peasants the apparent fact that the United States is merely pretending to befriefSd them, while in reality deserting them; and the peasants will be forced to believe what they see, not what they hope. The Czecho-Slovak forces have made fast at Chelia binsk, at the eastern foot of the Urals, for the winter. This is the point long ago agreed upon by the allied staffs as a suitable stronghold from which to operate in defend jng the Transsiberian railroad and eventually to thrust the bolsheviki out of central and northern Russia. Gen. Dietrichs, the Czecho-Slovak chief of staff, reminds the allies that they can accomplish this task if they will send reinforcements, but that the Czecho-Slovak forces alone cannot hope to do the work. The allies cannot afford to neglect Russia while they go forward with peace plans. Russia and peace are in extricably intermingled. Unless Russia is restored to order and good government there will be no world peace, The bolsheviki are fast driving Russia into a bog of famine and anarchy, from which may arise a miasma that will poison the whole world. It is absurd to at tempt to ignore a nation of 200,000,000 liberty-loving people inhabiting a territory comprising one-seventh of the earth. That tremendous force will work either foi evil or for good on a vast scale, affecting the population of all other countries. The allies, for their own safety's sake and for the sake of civilization, should immediately send forces to Russia to co-operate with the people in throwing off bolshevism and setting up a free and stable government. Washington Post. Major Shelton Writes Home The schools in the country districts will only close where in the judgment of the teacher and patrons of the school it is thought necessary. In some communities there may be found members of some families suffering from influenza who have no one in school. It would therefore be foolish to close the school of that district on that account There will be but few of the rural schools affected by the order of the board of health, we are informed today. That he has "not renounced anything;" that he would like a job in a factory; that he was convinced in 1914 that Germany was beaten and tried to impress the need of peace upon the Staff; that he thought the Verdur attack a mistake; that he "never desired war," and thai he was always opposed to lawless outrages by sea and aii are statements by the German ex-crown prince which display more intelligence than has commonly been as cribed to him. YANKS WILL LACK TURKEY. The American army in France will not have the usual turkey, cranberry and mince pie menu for Christmas dinner. The war department announced recently that owing to the difficulties of distribution and the length of time required to send special shipments of holiday food, it had been decided not to forward turkeys and Christmas dinner accessories. To the quartermasters of the expeditionary force will be left the task of providing such a holiday repast as can be made up from the regular commissary supplies. Troops at home will get their turkey as usual. Camp and post commanders already have given the necessary . orders. An appreciation of the local newspaper and of what its editor does for the community is well expressed in an article we have noticed in some of the exchange; credited to ex-Governor Francis, of Missouri. It follows , Ex-Governor Francis once said the- following of news papers: "Each year the local paper gives from $500 to $1,000 in free lines to the community in which it is lo cated. No other agency can or will do this. The editor In proportion to his means, does more for his town than any other ten men, and in all fairness he ought to be supported, not because you like him or admire his writ ings, but because the local paper is the best investment a community can make. It may not be brilliantly edited or crowded with thought, but financially it is more benefit to the community than the preacher or teacher. Under stand me, I do not mean mentally and yet on moral ques tions you will find most of the papers on the right side. Today the editor of the local papers do the most for the Jeast money of any people on earth." HOLLAND AND HOHENZOLLERN. The chances that William Hohenzollern will have to answer for his crimes before an international tribunal are daily increasing. So are the evidences of his per sonal guilt. Herr Kurt Eisner, the head of the Bavarian republic, promises revelations of the most sensational description, backed up by documentary evidence in the kaiser's own handwriting. The feeling in entente coun tries that William II should appear at the bar of out raged humanity has so gained in force as to be practically unanimous. Holland, which must be regarding her self-invited and most unwelcome guest as a sort of "white elephant," will surely make no opposition to his extradition. The Dutch government even proposes a solution of the kaiser prob lem that has much to recommend it. It is that Holland should intern the imperial criminal for life in one of the Dutch colonies, either in the East or West Indies. this plan were accepted by the allies, the kaiser would be disposed of without getting into the limelight of a spectacular trial before an international tribunal. There is always the danger that he will pose as a martyr and receive the sympathies of maudlin sentimentalists. If the Dutch proposal should be accepted, he could be promptly hustled off the stage on which he has strut ted and attitudinized for over a quarter of a century and passed into oblivion,- the worst possible punishment for a "poseur" of his caliber. Of course, there is always the fear that a Dutch colony might prove not a St. Helena but an Elba. But the same would hold good of any other place of internment which the allies might select. The only place of exile that would meet with popular approval is probably Devils Island, where the unfortunate Captain Dreyfus spent nearly ten years of his life. From the point of view of poetic justice Devils Island has much to recommend it. A wind-swept spit of sand lost in the ocean, the kaiser would there be alone with his thoughts and would have time to meditate on the horrors his mad ambition let loose on humanity. Than that no greater punishment could be imagined. In com parison with it the blank wall and the firing squad would be a merciful end. Washington Post Tobacco men tell us that prices will be good on all grades of tobacco when the warehouses open the first of the year. Farmers should hold their tobacco and sell it over the warehouse floors. If you kaow of a family afflicted with influenza or sickness of any kind that are in need of. assistance, make it known to the civilian relief committee. They are prepared to render, assistance to those in distress. The boys on the farm are far better off if they only knew it than thousands of the boys who are at large wandering hither and thither, searching and looking for "rich bonanzas" to turn up. There i3 nothing like be ing practical and there is but one way to be so. Acquire business habits and train yourself to do good, honest hard work. Don't waste your time learning to tie cravat. You can buy cravats already tied. A. E. F., St. Nazaire, France. My Dear Grandfather: Although I am many miles away, I am thinking of you, for I have not forgotten that today is your birth day, and I want you to accept my heartiest congratulations, and I hope you will live to enjoy many more years of good health and prosperity. Yesterday and today have been great days of celebrating in France, for Germany has signed the armistice dictated by the allies and the kaiser has left Berlin and gone to Holland. One year from now on your birth day I hope to be at your celebration in person. At 11 o'clock a. m. yesterday when we learned of the good news every whistle and church bell began ring ing and did not stop until night All work ceased and the American and French soldiers went arm in arm about the town. The old gray-haired folks became young again, and cele brated like a child with a new toy. It was a wonderfu lsight and one never to be forgotten. I can imagine how you and all the home folks were thankful when you heard the good news, for many an one is thankful that it is only a matter of a short time before peace will be signed. As soon as peace is signed I will begin to count the days before I will be on my way to see you and all the folks, for I am under an impression that we boys who were wounded at the front will be among the first to leave. This is a nice country in some parts. I would like to be with the regulars once more. The weather is fine and I am in the best of health. Has mother received my Liberty bond yet. I will close.
