At the election held in Maine on

amendment was defeated.
The American Bible Society has
undertaken to raise a fund of $400,000
to supply men in the army and

President has heartily endorsed thi
undertaking as one which all Chris

letter addressed to the farmers of
the State calling attention to the
meeting in Columbia. September
27, at 4 p. in., at which the vital
question of holding cotton for a better
price will be considered.
It begins to look as though
John Edgar Hrunson, Jr., were the

brother, when we read the news in
the Journal that American destroyers
had sunk six U-boats we thought
it wasn't so. Now it turns out from
reading other newspapers that probably
one submarine was sunk. The

The New i'crk World speaking of
the governmental plan needed by
Russia says: "The plan of federated
states which we adopted after much
delay is peculiarly adapted to Russia.
It should solve the problem of
Finland, of the Ukrain, of Bessarabia,
of other sections which for reasons
of race, or climate or trade conditions,
or religion are hotly demanding
particularist treatment or
absolute independence. A constituent
assembly with a finished con.
stitution as its work is Russia's vital
need. If Kerensky aDd his associates
can bring this about Russia's
future is bright indeed. Ten thousand
squabbling Assuring "groups"
would invite a German Napoleon."

Miss Edith L. Parrott, State!
agent for home demonstration |
work, states that this work under
' Winthrop College and the United '
'states Department of Agriculture, is!
J established in every county in the
| State. Miss Parrott states: "The
, following lines of work are being
stressed at the present time: Kail '
gardens, fall poultry, the preserving1
land canning of fall fruits such as
pears, grapes, etc., wheat substitutes,
meat substitutes, economy in
the selection, combination and use
of foods, community, county and
I State fairs, and marketing of sur
: plus canned products." j'
The Information is that most Ger-.
man newspapers are wrathy over
1 resident Wilson's reply to the
Pope's peace proposal, but all the
same the leaven is working. The
German people yearn for peace,
their suffering is great, and the
spirit of democracy is growing. (
The underswell will overthrow the ,
autocratic and militaj'istic reign of (
the Hohenzollern, unless peace is (
soon brought about. The situation ,
will no doubt induce the German
government to give rather favorable ,
, response to the Pope's mediation, ,
, but how will the German people ^
. guarantee the good faith of any j
peace agreement unless they take I.
the powers of government into their
j own hands?
j The criticisms we read about con- i
' coining the high charges of the nier-jj
' i chants, restaurants and property I
' owners in Columbia do not seem to
be well founded Judging bif 'ho v#rv
reasonable explanation of those who
are the objects of criticism. It must
not be forgotten that every factor'
that goes to make the thing sold has 1
greatly advanced in cost and the 1
i selling price is most probably not 1
(out of proportion to the cost nrice '
and everybody is entitled a rpas- '
onable profit. It is very easy and i
natural for the critic to compare his (
present expenditures with former
expenditures for the same article or
service without proper comparison
between present and former costs of
production, and hence the danger of
being unfair to the other fellow
without really meaning to he so.
Of course there are some people in
every community that take a grossly
selfish advantage of every situation,
hut we imagine that this is
merely an exception to the general
rule of fair dealing whit h prevails in
