I was conceived, in passion, hatred, envy, and greed, born in the morning of antiquity, and have a genealogy whose every page drips with the red blood of murdered innocence. I respect neither the feebleness of gray hairs, the helplessness of infancy, nor the sacredness of virtue, and walk, iron shod, ruthlessly and impartially over tie form of the weakling or the form of the giant. I paint the midnight skieB a lurid glow from the burning homes I have ravaged, and I turn peaceful scenes of rural beauty, where God’s own crea tures dwell together in amity, into a raging hell. I set neighbor against neighbor in deadly combat, and I incite brother to slay his brother. I make puppets of kings, princes of paupers, courtiers of courtesans, and thieves of respected subjects; and em pires melt before my breath as does mist before the morning sunlight. I make of religion fanaticism, the heathen a fiend incarnate, and of all men I make playthings devoid of rea son and justice. Through intrigue I make the intelligent powerful, the un scrupulous wax fat on the spoils of blood-won victories gained by others, and the less learned suffer for their own ignorance. Famine, want and misery follow in my path; I lay waste green fields, and still the hand of industry. I pillage the land of its resources, but contribute nothing to the benefit of mankind, leaving pestilence to stalk ghostlike in my wake and complete the work of de struction. I lay heavy tribute upon my most loyal subjects for the main tenance of my establishment; I squan der the vitality and lives of those who serve me faithfully, yet return to the world nothing but. ruin and ashes. The baubles of fame I confer on Borne are empty shells of false standards wherein the license to commit murder and ra pine is held to be the insignia of glory by a mistaken civilization. I can offer no excuse for mv having come into existence, nor can I give one plausible reason why I should not cease to be, other than that so long as men who wield influence ore permitted to gratify their selfish desires and am bitions at the expense of the many who mu9t carry the burdens and endure the sufferings, that long will I continue to exact my toll of sorrow, devastation and death. For I am pitiless—devoid of all feeling; I fear neither man nor God; I am amenable to no law, and I am in myself the law and the last re sort. I AM WAR! At Planting Time Next Spring. Albany Herald. If the war in Europe should still be in progress next spring, when seed- dropping time comes in the South, it is probable that there will be little need of legislation to limit the acreage to be planted in cotton. For there will still remain undisposed of approximately half, and possibly a good deal more than half, the crop of 1014. Some of this cotton will be stored in warehouses, a good deal v/ill still be on the farms where it was raised, and a not inconsiderable part will be in the hands of those who have made purchases either from philan thropic or selfish motives. The mills in the Uuited States may have also ac cumulated a considerable stock, taking advantage of the low prices prevailing. Knowing these things to be true, the farmer who deliberately plants any thing like the average annual acreage of the last ten yearn courts not only disaster, but destruction. It will be the wildest sort of folly for the South to plant more cotton than can be con veniently carried through the winter of 1915-16 and the succeeding spring. Prudence and safety demand that the farmer produce at home everything his family, his laborers and his beasts re quire, for the problem of the South is but the aggregate of the individual problems of the cotton-growers. The farmers have been accused of many follies, and they have often been guilty, but we believe they are too H»ne to plant more than half a crop of cotton in 1915.

If some of our delinquents do not come to our aid The Vindicator will be compelled to suspend publication be fore long. It costs at least $150 per month to run the paper. We have over one thousand sub scribers who owe us each from one to three dollars for subscription. We recently mailed a statement to each debtor and have received to date less than $100 us returns. In many instances the failure to re spond is mere thoughtlessness. We want to ask you to think. It’s only a dollar that you owe each year for subscription, and it is a trifle to each individual. In the aggregate it is a large sum to us. Wo cannot continue to run the paper if all debtors continue to owe us. We have done the best we could to give you a readable and newsy paper. We have cheered you in trouble and comforted you in sorrow. We have praised the newly weds and sent the dead to glory. We have been the opti mist amid hard times, but may join the rank of the pessimists unless our de linquents save us from that doom. Even in hard times you will have to read something. Type refuse to print without ink, and ink and paper won’t come without pay. No joke about it. Quit forgetting, and think. Every time you see the editor it is a reminder, and, if you are notj think ing, he is. He remembers that you owe, and trieH by mental power of sug gestion to lead your mind in the chan nel of payment. We had rattier write an obituary than a dun. Tilings are Bqually at The Vindicator office. if you owed a great big amount we wouldn’t expect it now; but you can come across with the price of sub scription. Positively Masters Croup. Foley’s Honey and Tar Compound cuts the thick, choking mucous, and clears away the phlegm. Opens up the air passages and stops the hoarse cough. The gasping, strangling fight for breath gives way to quiet breathing and peace ful sleep. Harold Berg, Mass, Mich., writes: "We give Foley's Honey and Tar to our children for croup and it al ways acts quickly.” For sale by all dealers. A Contrast. Reno Laidlaw, in JiippincoLL’tt. A contrast- and its chief cause-is shown by the cases of Preston, Pa., and Wellsville, Kan. The Pennsylvania town h said to be the "wickedest in America.” Four hundred and twenty five of its five hundred inhabitants drink whiskey, and 415 of the 425 are said to get drunk regularly. Wellsville, the Kansas town, 48 miles from Kan sas City, is 44 years old, has a popu lation of 750, and has never had a saloon in its history. It has never had a case of rape or murder; a pauper, a thief, or a lawyer. Of course, its in habitants are not all saints, but they have no pool rooms and Ho bawdy houses. There is a $2,500 school-houS?/ sot down on a 60-acre playground. There are brick and cement Bidewalks, and brilliant street lights at all cross ings. Everbody in town workB hard except the town marshal. Once an agent for a mail order liquor house visited Wellsville, but before he had booked any orders fifteen feminists, armed with horsewhips, marched to his hotel —and the salesman departed minus his sample case. Would you rather buy real estate ia Preston, i'a., or in Wellsville? Would you rather bring up a family in the “wickedest town in America,” or in the Kansas community? Mrs. Benton tasted the savory mor sel she had carefully compounded ia the chaffing dish and looked at her hus band somewhat apprehensively. Then she said: “Somehow it don’t taste just as Mrs. Mink’s did the other night. Yet I thought I remembered the recipe all right. I suppose I must have left something out. ” Mr. Benton tasted reflectively. “I don’t think so.” he remarked. Mrs. Benton’s face brightened vis ibly. Then her husband continued: “There’s nothing you could leave out,” he said, “that would make ft tu«te |ii- e this. It’s something you've putin!” Keep Your Stomach and Liver Healthy.
