"IF GERMANY HAD WAITED." [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919
"IF GERMANY HAD WAITED." Speaking after the ceremony of the &nbsp; presentation of thc freedom of the city of Rome, President Wilson said that whatever time had swept away of the spirit of Rome, the Italian people re -mained, despite all changes, an Imper ial people. Now they gladly accepted the freedom of nations. The people who once conceived the idea of govern -ing the world would now participate in the liberal enterprise of offering the world its own Government. It was im -possible to see a finer or more impressive illustration of the indestructible hu -man spirit. If Germany had waited a single generation she would have held the commercial empire of the world, &nbsp; but, unwilling to conquer by skill, en &nbsp; -terprise, and commercial success, "she tried to conquer by arms; but it was impossible to conquer the world by arms. The only thing that would con &nbsp; -quer the world was service, rendered by &nbsp; one nation towards all.

The "Dusseldorf Machrichten" des cribes Mr. Lloyd George as a "hypo crite and a mass murderer," and adds : "England ia a vile bird of prey. The new House of Commons is the child of drunken Imperialism."
ANGLO-AMERICAN AGREEMENT. [Newspaper Article] — Advocate — 6 January 1919
ANGLO-AMERICAN AGREEMENT. &nbsp; &nbsp; The United Press Association's cor -respondent at Washington asserts that &nbsp; according to information reaching the &nbsp; State Department, Lord Reading (Brit- &nbsp; ish Ambassador) will return with Pre- &nbsp; sident Wilson to tho United States. This fact is regarded as evidence of Anglo-American agreement, since when Lord Reading returned to England sev -eral months ago it was reported that he and President Wilson disagreed vastly upon peace aims. Tho association's London correspon -dent interviewed Senator Owen, who said:-"If America's mission to Europe is unsuccessful, America will continue to build ships until her navy is the largest in the world, but we have shown all that America desires is dis -armament." The "New York Evening Sun's" Washineton correspondent states that Mr. Wilson is prepared to take a most drastic course to compel the acceptance of the principle of a League of Na -t...

POLICING RUSSIA INSISTENT ENGLISH DEMAND DETERMINED ACTION URCED. LONDON, Saturday. - Germnn troops have been forced to evacuate Reval, and have taken up positions outside the city. English newspapers continue to de -mand an Allied advance against the Bolsheviks towards Germany, empha -sising thc inability of the German for ces to stay their progress.

THIS INFLUENZA SCOURGE PLAIN NUT-SHELL FACTS Tho heart is a pump. It has, in main, two pipes, one up the other down, through which it pays out; two again, ono down the other up, through which it takes back. Pneumonia does more than attack the lungs. It attacks the circulating system. Let it get far enough and it will stop the heart dead. WAWN'S WONDER-WOOL (the Magic Wrap) restores the circulation. And &nbsp; even as pain indicated the danger so does its going show that this has been averted. But keep it in the house. It is essential. With respect to preventa -tives the best against this or any other inhalable germ is something that will kill it at "the gates." WAWN'S WONDEB-BALM (the Magic Salve) is put up in a sanitary collapsible metal tube and may be carried in the pocket. Put a little up the nostrils now and again, and a little on the tongue. It is equally good for catarrh. Wawn's Wonder-Wool, price 2/6 a packet, and Wawn's Wonder-Balm, prico 2/- a tube are on sale by a...
