WHAT IS AMERICANISM?
It is hard to pick up a newspaper tins.
days wit h reading of a general strike" thai
is threatened for some city, either here of
abroad. Thai which has centered the Inter

the OUtbuni in Seattle.
What does this all mean I Is the ttmv

sober-minded citizens are asking them
Out here in the oen of mi auricult lira I

Bolshevism Is class movement, an
anarchist movement, it is socialism carried
to its logical conclusion, the annihilatoii of
government by law. The tanner who toda.i
denounces the acts of the Seattle Bolshevist
lead by Rikowskv who threaten to take over
industries of that great city, are merely o
trig U) step farther than that proposed llj
Twonley and his Ndii Part i an leaders. The

permitted eonsienceless politicann to run the
affairs of state had better awaken to the fa.i
thai such conditions an- responsible in par;
for the troubles that are now disturbing the
peaee and prosperity of this country.
This is representative government. The
essence of Americanism Is a square deal, and
an e(iial opportunity before the law fo
every man to achieve our basic ideal of Life,
Liberty and the pursuit of Happiness.
If this ideal is worth anything, it i
worth protecting, And if it is worth pr ,
tecting it is worthy of the unwavering sup
port of every citizen.
THE ONTARIO CADETS.
The members of the High School lade!
company received generous praise from the
Colonel John Leader following his review of
their maneuvers last Friday afternoon. Tht
hoys will undoubtedly iheerish his words of
approbation, and strive to merit further ap
proval in years to come.
Among the other sentiments which tin
Colonel admirably expressed was this, on
which even citisen ma well pender: "With

""ALK about smokes. Prince Albert

in P. A. That's because P. A. has the quality.'
You can't any more make Prince Albert bite your
tongue or parch your throat than you can make a horse
drink when he's off the water I Bite and parch are cut
out by our exclusive patented process !
You just lay back like a regular fellow and puff to beat

How Gould He Do It?
A certain well-to-do YOUDjJ business BMUI
tailed ut a bank the other dav and asked fol
a loan of $500.00. Thr hanker prouipth
ti-ok his personal note for the amount.
Why could he do tins i- Simply because
SS a young man he coiiunenced doing hu
mess thru the hank. He had learned earlv
in life that the hank could help him in nianv
ways and the hanker learned that this
young man was a sticker and could be de
pended upon. In fact each had learned to
stay by the other. Young men, there is a
lesson n this for you. Start now doing row
husiness thru a good bank like ours. Stav
by us and we will stav by v.,u.
