It is always a position. :o: The rain came in just the nick of time. The farmers were needing it. :o: There will be no saloon in Cedar Creek this year. That seems de cisive. :o: At least the Germans mustjc given credit for stalling off Italy to the last minute. Some men arc a "friend of the peo ple" because they make their living that way. :o: All the world loves a lover, but the maiden loves him best of all if his cash holds out. :o : An ad in the paper is as convinc ii g as a flea beneath your underskirt. It produces quick action. :o: Of course "he who laughs last laughs best." How about the fellow who never laughs at all? :o: When you hear a man denouncing kissing as vulgar, just write him down as one who has sought and found it not. ::- And now Mexico wants this country to kick Iluerta from her peaceful shores. What a handicap is neutral ity! :o: "Wheat far above the average" is the optimistic headline over news paper accounts of the crop conditions in Nebraska. :o:" This would be a rip-snorting old world if it would be. just as easy to malic a good thing better as it is to make a bad thing worse. :o: The boys are not worrying much about the low marks on their school reports, provided they can keep their error column in the ball .score blank. :o: Torpedoing the Lusitania, it was fcaid, was done for psychological effect on England. That sort of effect on this side of the water may have been effect. :o: The merchant who does not adver tise is like the fellow who throws a kiss to his sweetheart in the dark he knows what he is doing, but no pne else does. :o: A news item from Lincoln says: "Professors of English at the State University are enthusiislic in their praise of President Wilson's note to Germany as a masterpiece of rhetoric." TRUST THE PRESIDENT. "Thrice is he arm'd that hath his quarrel just. ine justice and righteousness of President Wilson's demand upon the German empire is so apparent, and so clearly stated, that every true American stands ready to offer the fullest measure of sacrifice in its support. There is no division of opinion and no thought of receding frcm a single contention. The presi dent spoke as the heart and the con science of the nation would have him speak, and his appeal was in behalf of that which the whole world must admit is right and just. Whatever reply Germany may make to the president's demands, humanity will bless America for raising her voice above the confusion of battle and de manding that there be a limitation placed upon the brutality of war. And feeling confident that their quar rel is just, the American people calm ly await the decision of the great na tion across the sea hoping that Ger many, too, may recognize the justice of cur demands and make amends, but firm in their determination to right the wrongs that have been committed The American people would a thou sand times rather remain on terms of friendship with Germany than break for a single day the good feeling that has always existed, but America must protect her citizens whatever may be the cost. Whenever the American flag ceases to be a protection to American rights and American citizens, on cither land or s;ea, then will America cease to merit the love or devotion of her peo ple or the respect of other nations. The future of America is at stake, and the president, and the people have undertaken to lead the nation in the paths of righteousness, and to lift it to a still higher level than it has been 'wont to travel. Not since the day of Lincoln have the American people evi denced such deep and abiding faith in a president to meet a great crisis, as they now have in the ability of Presi dent Wilson to rightly solve the problems that confront us. And this faith is founded upon the fact that the president is known to be a God fearing Christian man, and that he has the courage to always do what he believes to be right. His acknowledg ed belief in divine guidance in human s flairs inspires confidence in the hearts of the people, and his deep tenm of right and justice is a suf ficient guarantee that he. will deal fairly with all nations. And his love of pace and his abhorrence of war are guarantees that he will preserve peace so long as it may be done with out sacrificing the honor of the nation. What the next week or the next month may bring to the American people, no man can foretell, but this we know, that the near future is fraught with far-reaching possibili ties. Today's worship should be a supplication for divine directions and a preparation for the duties that shall fall upon us. The whole world is ex pecting America to acquit herself as a nation of high-minded, justice-loving, courageous men. :o: A little sunshine now and then is relished by the farmer men. :o : The Germans charge that the re sponsibility for the sinking of the Lusitania should be laid at the door cf Great Britain. And why not? It was owned by Iiritish capital, and the commander knew that his ship would pass through dangerous waters. It was not an American ship, and the passengers who risked their lives to get across the cean knew the danger in an cfTort to do so. England and Germany arc at war, and neither has any light to risk the lives of innocent people on their ships during warfare. "Wh?.t is sauce for the goose is sauce for the gander!'

The demo crats are abundantly able to select their. own candidates, without any as sistance from the State Journal gang. :o: There are so many people who would like to know just exactly what a kilowatt is and who would like to read their own electric light meters that a tired editor has spent his odd moments for many years figuring out best work unless he likes the work. and that liking one's work is in itself a large portion of success, there being so much of one kind and another to be done in this somewhat industrious sphere. One's life isn't entirely a suc cess unless there is enjoyment in liv ing it, and that can hardly be the case if the day's work is distasteful. :o : Now is the time for Plattsmouth citizens to "pull together" for Platts mouth and see her go to the front again this season. :o: Prosperity? The old girl is hitting the high places in her eagerness to envelop us in her golden arms. Money is plenty in banks, and you can have all you want if you can furnish the collateral. - :o: There are still a great number of young men who feel it is not worth while to stay at home and acquire a farm when they can go to the city and earn $9.00 a week and see all the pic ture shows. A large number of business men at tended the Commercial club meeting Thursday night, which denoted good for the welfare of the city, and was very encouraging to the new presi dent, E. II.

There is nothing uncommon in the visit of New York men here. They come and go by the dozens, doubtless, and nothing is said about them while they are here, or by them when they go away. But this particular man came here to scoff at a trade condi tion which he felt sure one of hi: business associates knew notning tbout anil lo, ne remained to pray that conditions might always continue to be as satisfactory as he found them then. The underwear salesman for such ic was learned to his surprise that this section of the country, particu- arly Nebraska, is prosperous.
