Scolding is a middle-aged vice. Look out for it Seclusion is hardly ever a pose. The secluded like it for itself. Revolutionists are people who want things too much thoir own way. People who hate their work, but must do it, often do the most work. A rich man carries one burder the less. He isn't wor ried about money. Undertaking to "live your life" means that it is lik 'y to be a lonely one. Anyone who knows how to write a good letter doesn't dislike to write letters. The foolishest things of all are said just as the com pany is bidding good-by. It is unpleasant to boss anyone, even when there are only two in the family. One can help his town by wearing good clothes. That impresses the visitor, too. Portuguese paused from revolution long enough to wel come the trans-Atlantic airplane. Near beer will always keep up its affinity for near Swiss cheese and near frankfurters. Try, try again in certain directions and you can annoy a tremendous number of people. Always talk to people about the novels they have r ad not the novels they haven't read. The peace conference has been interesting, hut the trial of the kaiser will fetch more thrills. Texas went dry by the skin of its teeth, but the ma jority is enough to plug up the bunghole. It serves the same end getting a vacation whether one visits around a summer hotel or goes to a convention There can be no brotherhood of man so long as anyonr is so indifferent as to drop a banana skin on the sidewalk Two miles above the earth the air is icy cold. A utili tarian scientist owes the world a plan to tap it in July and August. Weather, like everything else in nature, goes on n spree occasionally. Human nature also has outbursts of various kinds. Being the only islands in the mid-Atlantic, it was fore ordained that the Azores should be the scene of many famous events. When you look at hats that are "$3 and up," the one that exactly suits your taste is always the uppest which shows your taste is good. Excellenz, Count Brockdorff-Rantzau : Get a daisy and pull out the petals I will sign, I won't, I will, I won't, I whatever depends on the last petal. In every city there is talk of subways, but we believe the most popular subways, and not so expensive, would be at the street intersections where motor cars are the thickest. Hard liquor, when it goes if it ever does will take all its slang designations with it scores of them. Of them all, "hootch" was we speak already in past tense the funniest Gone are the bad old days when stern and too par ticular editors cast most of the poetic contributions into the waste basket Colyum conductors have arisen since, and they are kinder. With hard cider unmolested and his trusty little silo working in the stilly watches of the night the distilly watches Silas Corntassel has the inebriatory future of the country in his hands. Another victory of rus over urbs. GERMANY AND THE LEAGUE OF NATIONS. Berlin advices state that Germany is willing to accept the military and economic portions of the peace treaty if she is admitted into equal membership of the league of nations, with reciprocal commercial rights from the be ginning. The details ana quauncauons oi in is oner are not given, but it is to be supposed that Germany would expect the league of nations to take over the execution of the treaty, thus doing away with the allied reparations commission and giving Germany herself a share in the decisions affecting the enforcement of the treaty. This proposed arrangement would be nothing less than a surrender to Germany. It is a shining example of the mixture of cunning and false reasoning habitual to the Huns. They seize upon the league of nations project and succeed in making a prima facie argument in favor of the admission of Germany; that is, they assert that Germany has shaken off autocracy, abandoned militarism, established a popular government and put aside the indi viduals who were responsible for the war. Therefore Germany urges that she is entitled to membership in a league of nations formedof free governments having for its purpose the maintenance of peace. These statements are lies, and . hence the . allies will make short work of Germany's proposal. Even if they were true, however, the allies could not safely admit Germany into the league. The Huns would do all the things required to qualify them for-membership in the league of nations, if by so doing they could hoodwink the allies into creating such a league and making Ger many an equal member. Once this condition had been reached, the Huns could then make mischief to their hearts' content by betraying their neighbors within the league. The free nations could not make any move with out Germany's consent, since Germany would, of course, insist upon being one of the permanent members of the coancil. Germany would have the secrets of all other nations and would have abundant material with which to betray them. If there is one feature of the league of nations project that cannot possibly work unjuriously to the principle of freedom, it is the exclusion of the Hun nation from membership. The free nations are now fastening upon Germany the terms which she must accept sooner or later. It is not a negotiation between equals, but the imposition of the victor's terms upon the vanquished, to compel Ger many to do all in her power to repair the damage she has done. Therefore it is a bad time to talk "league of nations" and to propose a general scheme of universal peace based upon the eventual indissoluble joining to gether of all the nations. The allied peoples do not want any joining with the Huns, now or hereafter. They will never trust the Germans again, never. If a league of nations should be formed and an attempt should be made to admil the Germans, there would be a peremptory com mand from allied peoples to quit such an attempt The free nations are already a league, and they arc now putting into effect the only program which any league of nations could put into effect for the cause of peace; that is, the shackling of the peace disturber. Ger many is at the bottom of all the deviltry of this war. including Russian bolshevism. The free nations are banded against Germany and are trying to fasten a peace upon Germany that will make the world safe. The at tempt to distract the nations from this plan and simple duty by drawing them into a universal perpetual experi mental peace league on a plan scrambled hastily togethei in Paris is extremely dangerous, because it may breed dissension among the nations that must stick together ii Germany is to be conquered. Germany's plea for ad mission into the league is best dealt with by abrupt re fusal on the proved ground of inherent Germany perfidy. That perfidy is not temporary, but permanent The league of nations would be up against German perfidy fifty years hence as much as now. There cannot be any league of nations which embraces allied peoples and Ger mans. Hence, if there should be an experimental uni versal league, it would always have Germany and the Germans to fight in one way or another. Washington Post.

UNION TEMPLE Methuselah lived seven hundred years, and no doubt in that time at least fourteen hunder women tried to remodel him, never realizing that no woman ever succeeded in chang ing any man from his eyebrows up. There are "born bachelors" just as there are "born poets," and "born mechanics." Sometimes you may succeed in turning a "born bache lor" into t husband, but the results are just as expensive and unconvinc ing as turning a - brunette into a blonde. They-are -always the same at the-roots. Income: A small green island, covered with taxes and entirely sur rounded by profiteers. It is now safe to go into Mexico if Villa says so. Every farmer who provides himself with as lovely a residence as his means will permit surrounded with a neat lawn and a well cultivated farm, is a blessing to any community. This county may consider itself lucky indeed to have so many industrious farmers of this stamp. This year should be a time for a grand clean up or our home town. For two years our thoughts have been on the war. Many local conditions have been neglected. There are eyesores that need to be removed. Shade trees should be planted, walks trimmed, buildings repainted, flowers planted and our town made as attractive as possible. There are still-a few old fashion ed husbands who fondly fancy that a woman's idea of athletics is mix ing a salad or beating a cake batter and that her noticn of entertain ment consists of watching some man read the newspaper evenir.gs. If June 1 is Father's Day, why not make July 1 "Husband's Day?" Or are you- afraid that the Govern ment will put a luxury tax on them if we notice thorn too much? After a while a man guts so that he ean - look -right through his wife without seeing her, and she gets so that she can see right through him without looking at him. No man is a hero to his caddy! 4 4 Little Benny's Note Book J By LEE PAPE, 4 4,444,4,4444,4,44,44' A story is printed that if a jug is filled with meal and a little' water, then buried and left in the ground for a year it will become a jug of whiskey. This jug is a com panion piece of crockery to the pot that reposes at the terminus of a rainbow. Animal students say that when cats wash behind their ears it is a sure sign of rain. That's an outrage, isn't it? Imagine not being able to wash behind your ears unless it's going to rain. John H. Raftery. When boys wash ... .... nina their ears 11 is a sure sign tney re growing up. We can all find strength to carry our burden in one day; to be knid, and sweet, and true, and firm, just till night falls. This is all life ever asks of us. To fight one day's temptation, do one day's duties; check angry and fretful humors; hold our tongues in subjection, and, if we can say nothing kind, say nothing at all, for just one day. There are fathers who grandly struggle against the tides of fate, and never lisp the secret of their despair, whose young dreams have all faded, but who patiently bear their allotted burden with what tries to be resigna tion. There ar enoble women whose domestic afflictions would crush them if they were not heroines, who silently suffer and make the most of their disappointed years. They sing and so the world thinks them happy, when they are only brave. Yestidday we was eating suppir, being roast beef and mashed pota toes and peez and loose gravey and a bran new cleen table cloth, me thinking, G, if cny of this grcvey gets on eny of this table cloth, it will show, all rite. Wich I hadent hard ly got thru thinking it wen I bumped a peece of roast beef with gome mash potatoes on my fork and the peece of roast beef slid off my plate and left a big gravey stane on the table cloth, me thinking, Gosh, G, jest wen I was going to ask for a nickel to go to the movies. And I quick moved the bred tray over the stane and kepp on eating, and after a wile ma sed, Benny, pass me the bred, please. G, I thawt. And I started to eat faster like sumbody that dident heer very good, and ma sed louder, Ben ny, bred, are you deff? Yes mam, no mam, I sed. And I picked a slice of bred off of the bred tray and handed it to her, ma say- ng, I asked you to pass the bred, is that passing the bred? Yes mam, its passing one slice of it, I sed. Benny Potts, are you trying to be impewdent? sed ma. No mam, gosh, no mam, I sed. Well then eat that slice yourself and pass me the .bread, sed ma, and I sed, Yes mam, would it be all' rite if I put one peece on a plate .and then passed the plate? It would not, and meanwile Im still waiting for the bred, sed mt. Yes mam, I sed. And I started to lift up the bred tray to pass it, say ing, Well would it be all rite if I' put about 3 peeces on a plate and then passed the plate? Pass that bred and be quick about it, sed ma. Wich I did, aad the -result being that I dident ask. for a nickel for the movies and nobody offered me one.

CHATTER BOX. The Gift of God. Sleep Is the' gift of God. We think we lay our heads upon our pillows and compose our bodies In a peaceful pos ture, and that therefore we naturally and necessarily fall asleep. But it Is not so. Sleep is the gift of God, and not a man would close his eyes did not God put his fingers on his eyelids ; did not the Almighty send n soft and balmy Influence over his frame which lulled his thoughts Into quiescence, making him enter Into that blissful state of rest which we call sleep. Charles H. Spurgcon. : professional: HAPPY I'm happy as a pumpkin, I'm hap py as a tree, so let no grouchy bump kin attempt to queer my glee. The sky is blue as thunder, the sun is bright as gold, and all the landscape under is gorgeous to behold. The bee all blithely bumbles, the birds sing n the trees, and any man who grum bles I size up as a cheese. I'm hap py in the gloaming, I'm happy at the dawn, I'm happy when I combing the dead cats from the lawn; I'm happy when I'm eating, I'm happy when I aint, my grins I keep repeating, and I'm fresh as paint. I am an ancient chappie, I've reached five score and ten, but I'm always happy, so I grow young again.. I'm happy as an oys ter, I'm happy as an eel; I dance and sing and royster, and tell how good I feel. And other gents who see me kick up my howdydo, cut out the teardrops streamy, and they are hap py too. I'm happy as a pony, I'm happy as a squash, I say that grief is nhoney, and shoo it to Oshkosh. And all the sorehead slouches, and all the cranks dadblamed, and all the grumps and grouches see me and are ashamed. This life is brisk and snappy, worth all of its expense, and I'm so doggone happy you'd think I had no sense. W. T. MITCHELL ' Justice of The Peace Office, Basement Mason Hons, Greeneville, Tenn. O.

BLISSFUL IGNORANCE "The opera was just a darling, Mrs. Smith," declared Mrs. James Orphington Rex, as she felt of her diamond earrings to make sure they were at the proper angle. "I know I would have enjoyed it," answered Mrs. Smith. "You would have had fits over it, Mrs. Smith. Calf was so cute and they all sung in Latin." A sneeze saved a snicker, after which Mrs. Smith asked, "What ope ra did you hear, Mrs. Rex?" "I have written it down on a card here in my bag. I wanted to get it just right. You see the name was on the curtain and I copied from that It was 'Asbestos.." THE USUAL ADVICE Senator Borah was talking at a dinner about the danger of Bolshev ism. "We lawmakers," he said "are of fered a lot of advice. As usual, the trouble is not that we are unwilling to accept advice, but the advice isn't worth accepting. "Most advice reminds me of that giver by the gambler's wife. Anoth er day said to her: " 'How much better men would be if they'd only accept their wives' advice.' "'That's too true,' the gambler's wife agreed. 'If you only knew how, in season and out of season, I advise my husband never to bet on losing horses, but the crack-brained fool will do it just the same.' " L ROAD SCHEDULES NEWJON C.
