Some of the amendments already agreed upon are excel lent, if we are to accept the meager hearsay reports which leak out from Taris. Other amendments necessarily will be made if the President has finally abandoned the idea that the United States should accept any league, even of questionable constitutionality, for the sake of sharing in the upbuilding of a safe world. Of course, the easiest and quickest method of obtain ing the cooperation of the United States in the upbuild ing of the world through a league is to avoid a clash with the Constitution; and he most untrodden fields of steward Being a preacher is not the cinch that some folks imagine. No matter what he is or. does, he is sure to dis please somebody usually several nmAhnrfies. The tastes and opin ions of different people are contra dictory. How is one poor human to accommodate himself to these anti podal predilections? Whichever al ternative he chooses he is bound to incur unfavorable comment. If his sermons have length, they are too elaborate or too repetitious; he dives deeper, stays under longer, and comes up dryer than anybody If they have brevity, they are else. c,;i inarlommtA merelv nice - SUpCl IILlOl, ,iMwMvw, ship of backward people, far outside' the scope of the Mon- Uttle taiks; and it is a well known j Win ik.

We quote from Article XIX: Certain communities formerly belonging to the Turkish empire have reached a stage of development where their existence as independent nations can be provisionally recognized, subject to rendering of ad ministrative advice and assistance by a mandatory power until such time as they are able to stand alone. The wishes of these communities must be a princi pal consideration in the selection of the mandatory power.

Unto the maiden of his choice he sought to sell himself. And he was glib and smooth of speech, yet frank and honest, too, And all the art of salesmanship he understood and knew, Against te competition of the world he had to stand, For there were many seekers for the favor of her hand. "My dear," said he, "I offer you not handsome looks or wealth: The line I respresent on earth is noted for its health; It has had better men than I to carry on its name, And they have built for character instead of fleeting fame. As one of them I offer you my future, with the vow , That I shall make it just as fair and good as I know how. Others may promise more than I, much more may other give, I can but offer unto you my best the while I live. You'll pay a greater price for me than some one else may ask, But do not judge the' liquor by the labels on the cask. High hopes and youn ambition now, and drames of joys to be, Are all I have to sell you, but love I guarantee. I will not fail you in the test, I will not wound your pride, I will not bring you down to shame, if you become my bride. When trials come I'll bear the load. I may not bring you fame, Nor wealth, nor friend's or high degree, but if your love I claim mi t n hrW vou hanDiness. whatever else may be." And here the maiden blushed and said: "You're sold yourself to me." t PROFESSIONAL T W. T. MITCHELL Justice of The Peace Office, Basement Matoa Hoate, Greeneville, Tenn. J. S.
