Some people, mostly politicians,

Did you notice that about" all of
that "little bunch of wilful men,"
whom the president with the full ap approval

nounced denounced two years ago, are lined up
against the league of nations.
. There -are many friends of the
league of nations who think Mr. Wil Wilson
son Wilson did not take the wisest course
in presenting the idea. The Tampa
Times,' which is as good a democratic
paper as is, says:
"The discouragement which, we
spoke of at the outset comes from the
very evident attempt of President
Wilson and other advocates of the
league to sweep the nation off its feet
in ,a great wave of sentimental en enthusiasm.

his cause. The people Have become ac accustomed

sailed away that he should inform
the conference that the people of Am America

league of nations was unwarranted
and unwise. Nobody knows yet wheth whether
er whether the people are for the league or
against it, and nobody can know un until
til until they have had a chance to express
themselves. Even at that moment
enough members of the Senate had
committed themselves against the
league to defeat. its ratification in its
present form."
We do not know how much strength
the Sinn Fein has in America, but its
adherents are talking just like the
pro-German element talked before our
government declared war, when
threats were made of a German upris uprising
ing uprising to help the Huns across the water
by open rebellion as well as conspir

acy. The dispatch elsewhere telling!
of the remarks of the delegate of the
Irish "republic" at Paris illustrates
their position. He openly threatens
our government unless it will aid his
faction. We can't understand how
any American can conscientiously aid
the Sinn Fein. It openly sympathized
with the Germans, and had no .rebuke
for their outrages in Belgium nor
their unjustifiable assault on France,
altho France has spent more blood
and treasure to help Ireland than all
the rest of the world put together.
During the war, the Sinn Fein aided
the Huns in every way possible, even
to the extent of an armed rebellion
against the British government. Of
A f 1 1 a V t
course, America nas naa to neip pay
for everything that weakened Brit-
am and prolonged the war had to
pay for it in American lives and Am American
erican American money. When our naval base
was established in an Irish city, the
Sinn Fein did all- it could to annoy
and injure our sailors. Justice Coha-
Llan of the New York supreme court,
who was righteously snubbed by Wil Wilson
son Wilson the night before the president
sailed for France, is not only an
"Irish-American," but was a friend of
the snake in the grass Bernstorff. A
year' ago, it lpoked like the hyphe hyphenated

hasn't, and he will probably keep on

. At the risk. of seeming insistent
and tedious, we must repeat that no
delay can be permitted in taking ac
tion to injure the beginning of work
on the Oklawaha above Silver
Springs. This is not a discrimina
tion against the lower portion of the
river, for which improvement was
provided equally with that above, be
cause, it is common sense that if the
super part is improved the lower
part must be. The converse may not
be true. The original project, approv approved
ed approved by the United States engineers
and upon "which this compromise we
have secured through Senator Flet Fletcher
cher Fletcher is based, -as evidenced, by the
provision for a lock sixty feet wide
and with six fet depth, provided for
the start to be made on the upper
reach of the river.- In no other way
can we hope to secure any real benefit
for the Oklawaha frofii the bill that
has been passed. It would be the
easiest' matter in the world to use up
that appropriation of $95,000 long
before Silver Springs is reached if
the work starts at'Welaka. Leesbur&
Leesburg has always been more
wideawake than Ocala to Oklawaha

shows that its policy has not changed.

The wise shopper keeps in touch with the advertisement of her
favorite stores. When she sees annoucements of goods in
which she is interested, she knows right where to go to find
them. She knows when they are put on sale.
No time lost in aimless looking and asking. Reading the ad ad-vertisements
vertisements ad-vertisements saves her time for other duties or pleasures.
When parents decide to send a boy or girl away to school,
they cannot take the time to go and inspect a great number
of schools from which to choose. They study advertisements
of schools and to the ones that seem to offer right conditions
they write for catalogs.
When a man decides to buy an automobile, he reads carefully
the advertisement which tell about the different makes of cars
and then he calls to see only those in which he is interested.
He does not start out by hunting up the salesrooms and look looking
ing looking at all the cars sold.
These are only a few ways in in which reading advertisments
saves the time of readers. There are many others.
Your daily newspaper is full of advertisements which not only
interesting but have some special message of benefit to you.
Make a practice of reading them. You wilL find your time
