Entered at the poutoffice at Greeneville, Tenn., as second- class matter.. Some of the best novels have had no scandal in them at all. No one has yet thought of the gas mask in peeling on ions. Congress comes to an end March 4; and the lame due1 . a are tnorougniy resigned. Corn can't be worth too much money in the" opinion of anybody who has husked it. Saving money is something that ought to be accomplish ed without self-punishment. A peculiarity of living in a foreign land is that one doesn't have to have so many opinions. Half the people do not know how the other half live or there would be more trouble than there is. , Something ominous. The boys are NOT playing mar bles, although there are plenty of dry spots. Let the league of nations start out, somehow; it can also accumulate eighteen amendments if needed. One of the miseries of life in the Old World is that mil lions of people there scarcely know what ice cream is. Max Harden says the kajeer stimulated hatred of the allies. Very true, but his big stimulation stunt was hatred of the kaiser. , Will Hays speaks of the political self-determinatidn of the South, but he does not commit himself to the policy of not annexations. That league of nations proposal takes on a different as pect when they begin to talk about internationalizing the Panama Canal. The two-fisted manner in which Lord Robert Cecil fought Germany makes him persona gratissima to Ameri cans. You're all right, Ambassador Bob! Carter Glass can count on the unbrideled patriotism of the people in pushing the loan over the top if he wil only put up some enemy that they can hit. The spirt of reciprocity between man and the mechanic, tradesma nand laborer, farmer and manufacturer, results every time in making the otwn a perfect one to do business in. The trouble with the average wile is that her husband is much more prodigal with his protestations of affection than he is with his money, and that he does not waste much of either unless he wants a button sewed on.

If you go away on a visit or friends come to visit you, see that the fact reaches this office before publication day. We have seen little children while running at play, oi perhaps on an errand for their parents, get a fall ami bump a head of skin a finger, and when they would go to their parents for a kind word of comfort they would say: "Well, next time look where you are going and don't be so awkward, go along now and hush." That child will certainly find out sooner or later that its parents have no love or sympathy for it, and it will grow up without any kind feeling toward that parent. But, on the other hand, let the child come to the parents for advice, and if kirid words are spoken the child will never forget it, an will always look with respect on that parent. .Mrs. Chas. W. Allen has been appointed By Governor A. H. Roberts as a member of the State Historical com mission whose duty it is to collect and preserve data rela tive to Tennessee's part in the world war. Appointment of this commission of twenty-five members was authori sed by joint resolution No. 12 recently adopted by the general assembly and will be composed of persons from the different parts of the state. Mrs. Alen's commission is dated February 7th, and she as notified the governor that she will accept. Mrs. Allen has always taken much interest in work of this caracter and the fact that she has kept in close touch with matters historical will be of much assistance to the State Historical commission in the work they have undertaken just now. Her appointment will be hailed with delight by her acquaintances and friends DANGEROUS DELAY IN MAKING PEACE. The delay in making formal peace is exertemely harm ful in many ways. It works to the disadvantage and peril of the allies and to. the advantage of the enemy. Every one recognizes the fact that far-reaching and complicated problems confront the peace conference, and there is a disposition to be patient while the conference is carefully considering these problems with a view of settling them properly and once for all. The populations of allied na tions are becoming restive, nevertheless, because they are convinced that secure peace with Germany is not being made as speedily as it might be. The peoples believe that this delay, which seems to be unnecessarily prolonged, is working hardship and loss to individuals, perplexity to communities and irritation to armies and nations. In the single matter of demobilization the delay in making peace is piling up trouble for each of the allied governments. The soldier boys are loyal to the core, and so long as there is fighting to be done there will be no grumbling. But when they are held in camp week after week while the Paris conference labors with questions which are not strictly a part of the program of settling this present war, the boys become impatient and their re latives are likely to become troublesome. Not an American soldier should be brought back from France while this nation is at war against Germany and while hte peace terms are undecided, for there is danger of disputes end Hun treachery which would surely lead to hostilities if the Huns discovered that the allies had un duly weakened their-forces. The strong hand of brute force must be held over the sulking Huns until peace terms have been imposed upon them. When Germany has been brought to terms the American soldiers must be brought home, every one of them. If an American army should be kept in Europe pending the debate on the league of nations ,after it is clearly seen that peace can 5nd should be made with Germany, a situation will be created which migh well alarm the government, for its position would not be supported by the American people. Already there is a rapid drift of sentiment toward bring ing the boys home without further waiting for peace adjustments. The twilight zone in which Americans are now living is most unwholesome. They know it is a state of technical war and practical peace. Technicality rules to the exclu sion of common sense in many matters. There is a clamp upon free speech which does not harmonize with peace, and yet there are traitors and enemies who are misusing free speech to make war on the flag. This is a dangerous condition, tending to split Americans apart when they are t heart ardently desirous of the same thing, namely, true liberty. Some honest Americans have been made indig ent by the suppression of ree speech, while other have been made jurious by enemy propagandists masquerading ts martyrs to free speech. In the business world the no-peace-no-war conditions ire bad. The government has relaxed its grip in some luartcrs and holds it in others. War prices pcrvail with out war activity. Peace demands cannot be met because peace conditions have not been established. All indus tries and all communities are more or less firmly linked together. No one industry can "go alone," however opti mistic it may be or however habdly its products may be needed. The only relif that the home government can jive is the creation of a medium for aiding industry and labor to ascertain what prices should prevail. That will lo some good; but while the home government is doing this the Paris peace conference is delaying peace in this and every country and thereby adversely affecting indus try and commerce throughout the world. So far as this situation is unavoidable all Americans are willing and able to accept the delays but it is difficult to convince them that it is unavoidable when the only matter actuajly agreed upon by the peace conference is the preliminary text of the proposed league of nations to preserve a peace that has not yet been made, and regarding which there must be considerable doubt if the making of it is so te dious and so difficult. Washington Post. It's might comfortable to feel that if a problem is too tough for solution it can slide over to the next Congress. THE RETURN An eight-hour job is usually long enough, especially if it is the kind that keeps you thinking about it eight more hours. Golden through the golden morning Who is this that comes, With the pride of banners lifted, With the roll of drums? With the self-same triumph shining In the ardent glance, That divine, bright fate-defiance That you bore to France. Youl But o'er your grave in Flanders Blow the winter gales; Still for sorrow your going All life's laughter fails. Borne on. flutes of dawn the answer: "O'er the foam's white track, God's work done, so to our homeland "Comes her hosting back. "Come the dead men with the live men From the marshes far, From the mounds of no-man's-valley, Lit by cross nor star. "Come'to bland with hers the essence Of their strength and pride, All the radiance of the dreaming For whose truth they died." So the dead men with the live men Pass an hosting fair, And the stone is rolled forever From the soul's despair.

It does not pay to advertise say some merchants who have done but little of it and that without keeping it up. The incident of the boy and the pump illustrates the mat ter very well. The boy was sent after a pail of water He pored in the priming; poured out as much as he pour ed in. Then he stopped to rest and the priming ran down. After some time of alternate pumping and resting he concluded it did not pay to pump and quit in disgust. The merchant who does not believe in advertising does it like the boy did the pumping. He advertised again and then concluded advertising didn't pay. throughout tt'W tc1i -in, sr-i ey facially in Greene county. : V V f-fiVT m conn.. miry?, . .. ( will r. "j f. I , mjL.
