Germany’s Attitude One of Defiance.
Wnahinirton Cor. Philadelphia Record.
Germany will defy the United States
and refuse to discontinue her present
methods of indiscriminate submarine
warfare. The tone of the answer of the
Kaiser’s government to the repn menta
tions formulated by President Wilson
has been mBde known. It will b»- a po
lite and suave refusal to desist from
that policy which resulted in torpedoing
the "Gulflight,” flying the American
flag, and sinking the ••Lusitania,” a
belligerent ship, with scores of Ameri
can citizens aboard.

Department of Agriculture Doing a
Great Work for the Farmer.
Atlanta, May 1R. — The Georgia De
partment of Agriculture considers none
of its recent efforts more valuable or
important to the individual and to the
State than that of seeking to induce the
Georgia farmer to raise his own food
supplies at homo.
The establishment of its market de
partment and the selling of nitrogen
forming bacteria to the farmers at cost
are two of the agencies the department
has made use of to encourage the home-
growing of food supplies. The efforts
of the veterinary department and other
agencies have already been turned in

keep out of the European war,” said
Commissioner J. D. Price in a state
ment issued to-day, "hut we cannot

neglected to prepare for it will be de

ference between living at home and
buying abroad, as there is between in
dependence and dependence; —it is a
question of taking your choice.
“On the other hand, if we keep out
of the war, as we all hope, there is just
as much reason for making at home
what ia needed in the way of food for
the family and for the stock. European
demand is going to keep prices way up,
and even though we should not make
one dollar’s worth to sell, we'll find at
the end of the year that the man who
has grown his food crops along with his
cotton is independent, and the man who
has not is dependent on somebody else
”1 don’t care how much cotton a far
mer raises, if he only takes care of the
food situation first. Make enough corn

Owing to tHe trouble the veterinary
division of the State Department of
Agriculture has had in dealing with
shipment of hogs, either infected or ex
posed to infection, into Georgia, it has
been found necessary to issue a special
order (No. 18) to govern the shipment
of swine, both from points outside and
within the State, to Georgia points.
This rule has been made solely with a
view to the protection of the Georgia
farmer against the introduction of hog
cholera and other infectious diseases.
Not only is the shipment of diseased or
exposed swine prohibited, but all public
stockyards are listed as infectious, and
shipments from them must be made
under the direction of the State Veter
inarian or one of his agents. In all
cases of exposure prescribed treatment
is required before the shipment can be
made. All shipments not made in ac
cordance with the rules will be subject
to quarantine. A copy of the new or

learn as we live, and the learning that
makes life worth while ia the sort that

misinterpret that word.
As a matter of fact, to live spiritually
should be the ultimate aim of every
person who lives. After one has come

Yes, that is one of the really big

Of course, we complain about it, and

In other words, the crisis is not far
distant. As has already been an
nounced, President Wilson’s note holds
Germany to a "strict accountability”
and demands assurances that she will
immediately change her policy, so that
no more Americans will follow those
who went to the bottom on the “Lusi

Despite the grave possibilities in the
present situation there appears to be
no apparent desire on the part of the
diplomats who are familiar with Ber
lin’s viewpoint to avoid the issue. If
statements made in diplomatic circles
can be credited, Germany is not at all
worried by prospects of war with the
It is suggested in responsible quar
ters that she is looking for an excuse
to break off relations, because she is
prepared to send a flotilla of two hun
dred submarines on the high seas to de
stroy every munition or food-carrying
vessel that leaves the United States
for British and French ports. The
greatest single desire on the part of
Germany, according to these diploma
tists, is to block the allies' supplies of
American-made guns and cartridges.
To carry out this plan she would wel
come an open rupture with the United
The American army is not taken se
riously in Germany, and the American
navy would be of negligible value in the
present conflict, according to the Ger
man military leaders, and the hostility
of the United States would be more
than balanced by the lessened quantity
of war munitions being shipped from
this country. German diplomats insist
that Russia will be helpless whenever
the American supply of guns and am
munition is cut off, and that her only
hope lies in a continuance of importa
tions from America.
The Administration will not alter its
policy in the slightest degree. The
President has reached a final conclu
sion. His cabinet has approved his po
sition. He is satisfied that the Ameri
can people will approve. The Adminis
tration will await Germany’s formal
reply, and it is believed that prepara
tions will immediately be started to
support the President’s determination
that Germany shall be held to a "strict
accountability.’’ Germany’s failure to
accept the President's demands will be
met with n withdrawal of diplomatic
representatives. When this action is
taken the situation will depend alto
gether upon Germany.
War to the Bitter End.
The sinking of the "Lusitania” haB
convicted the Prussianism of Germany
of everything charged against it, be- |
cause the "Lusitania" has proven that j
they are eagerly capable — and this
brings us to the Germany of the mor
row. Frederick Palmer, the most I
conservative but the most authoritative
of the war correspondents, writing in
Collier’s, says that the English are g<-
ingon with it to the end, until Germany
drinks the cup of bitterness and defeat
to the very lees, and he is right. Talk
of peace until Germany is so prostrated
that the victors can strike from the
seats of power and influence in Ger
many the Hohenzollernism which has
wrecked it so—spiritually long since,
and physically very soon —is untenable.
This thing must be done for the good of
the world, for the safety of mankind,
for the very maintenance of the color
of civilization. YeB, even if the Eng
lish and French have to batter their
way to Berlin and down Unter den
Linden to Potsdam and bring back the
arch-slayer to the courts of England to
answer to the charge of murder which
now stands against his name and house.
This thing must be done, even if we
have to help do it. There is little
doubt that England and France will
have it done before the winter sets in
again, for once the German line breaks
it will break for good. They have al
ready lost around a million and three-
quarters of their finest troops, accord
ing to their own bulletins—and the
lovely land across the Rhine will see in
steel-shod armies sweeping across its
fertile, prosperous countryside the tan
gible proof of the downfall of the policy

Resolutions of Respect.
We, members of the Turin Bible
Study Class, express our deep sorrow
in the death of one of our charter
members, Mrs. G. O. Scroggin, whose
spirit took it flight heavenward on
Wednesday evening, April 21. Since
the organization of this class by and at
the home of Mrs. A. S. Carmichael five
years ago, of the first seven members
no one has been more faithful than she.
Always meeting with Mrs. Carmi
chael, she had her place and chair.
Whereas, o’ershadowed by the sad
ness of this vacancy, and feeling our
loss so keenly, we desire to put on our
record our love and appreciation of her
whose life was Bucb a beautiful exem
plification of the religion of the Lord
Jesus Christ and a benediction to us.
Therefore, be it resolved—
1. That we bow submissively to the
will of our Father, and offer a prayer
of thanksgiving to Him for being per
mitted to have had her with us and the
influence of such a noble, consecrated
2. That while we have sustained a
great loss, yet let us profit by her ex
ample of faithfulness and constancy,
and strive to help the cause she loved.
3. That we tender to the bereaved
ones our Christian sympathy, and com
mend them to the care of Him whose
service was her chief delight.
4. That these resolutions be published
in our home paper and a copy furnished
her family. Bible Study Class.

There are going to be more field peas

shown by the fact that they are order
ing supplies of these bacteria as fast or
faster than the laboratory of the State

repaid for its efforts in arranging to sup
