some great outstanding facts are un
mistakable and constitute in a sense
part of the public business with which
it is our duty to deal. To state them
is to set the stage for the legislative
and executive action which must grow
out of them and which wehave yet to
shape and determine.

(Associated Press)
London. Dec. Z A demand for the
surrender of the former German em

erlands Netherlands government in the name of
all the allied cabinets, according to
the Express. The views of France
and Italy have been fully communi

President Wilson has also made sug

The opinion is held that Holland
will not put obstacles in the way. She

We are about to give order and or organization

will suffer us to serve them. It is in international

have dwelt of late upon Europe, upon
Asia, upon the .near and far east,
very little upon the acts of peace and
accommodations that wait to be per performed

are adjusting our relations with the

Do Not Wait to Be Coached
So far as our domestic affairs are

which haVe suffered the disarrange

not wait to be coached and led. They
know their own business, are quick

we might seek to put them in would
speedily become hopelessly tangled,

CATTS TRIES TO PASS THE BUCK
And Lay Blame for the Marianna
- School on the Members of
His Cabinet
(J. E. Worthington in Tampa Times)
Tallahassee, Dec. 2 "The Marianna
school isn't the only state institution
that hasn't been run as it should be,"
said the governor to the Times cor
respondent.
"When the legislature is over and I
have a little time I shall have some something
thing something to say to the people of the state
unless there are some changes made,"
he went on to say.
He would not say at this time just
what institution or branch of the
state affairs he meant, but asserted
strongly that he would be able to take
the lid off when the time came if he
thought it the right thing to do.
He reiterated what he has said at
other times, that he has known of
conditions at Marianna for some time.
He even went so far as to secure some
affidavits at one time, but the rest of
the board would not believe that Su Superintendent
perintendent Superintendent Boone was not handling
things to the best advantage, accord according
ing according to the governor and, as he states,
would not stand with him in his ef
forts to remove Boone some time ago.
"One member of the board used to
go shooting with his brother," said the
governor, "and this influence was
brought to bear on the board. I was
but one member and could do noth
ing.
"Yes, it is true that perhaps I ought
to have given the matter publicity but
didn't and things went on until
there was a very bad condition there.
I didn't know the boys were starving
but I did feel for a long time that the
superintendents wasn't the right man
for the place. He was not able to
control the boys in any t way."
The governor went on to point out
that he could do nothing in the way
of removing members of the board.
They are state officers, the same as
he, and subject to impeachment for
crime, but not to removal by him.

nothing did me any good or relieved me
until I took Cardui ... )
I was not able to do any of my work
for jone year and I got worse all the time,
was confined to my bed off and on. I got
so bad with my back that when I stooped
down I was not able to straighten up
again ... 1 decided I would try Cardui

I was feeling pretty good and could
straighten up and my pains were nearly
all gone.

them were great men In the full sense

of these four, and are not agreed to today;

one feels now that Washington was
great. He Is a world figure.
In mere intellectual power he was
not superior to the other four. He
had less originality and a less wide
range of capacity than Franklin, less
versatile activity of mind than Jef Jefferson,
ferson, Jefferson, less brilliant gifts for a con constructive
structive constructive policy and the exposition
thereof than Hamilton ; less logical
grasp and penetration of thought than
Marshall ; but he rose superior to them
all in a certain massive strength of
character, In a stately dignity, in a
calm firmness of purpose that neither
the smiles nor frowns of fortune could
divert from the course his judgment
had approved. So his primacy was
undisputed then and has remained un undisputed

The request, though a singular one,
is not without precedent. In 1909
Lord Burton made a similar request,
and nine years earlier the Marquess
of Bute ordered that his heart should
be conveyed 'to the Mount of Olives
for burial. This was done by his
widow. Robert Bruce enjoined a sim similar

who may or 'may not have acceded
