Wilson'*# Statement.  PARIS. April 15. The text of Presidfnt Wilson’s statement fol-| lows:  "In view of the fact that the questions    which must be    settled in  the    peace    with    Germany    have    been  I:' ought so near a complete solution that they can now quickly be put through the final process of drafting, those w’ho have been most constantly in conference about them have decided to advise that the German plenipotentiaries he invited to meet the representatives of the associated belligerent nations at Versailles on the twenty-fifth of April.  "This does not mean that the many other questions connected with the general peace settlement will be interrupted or that their consideration which has long been under way will be retarded. On the contrary, it is expected that rapid progress will now be made with these questions so that they may also presently ne expected to be ready for final settlement.  "It is hoped that the questions most directly affecting Italy, especially the Adriatic questions, can be brought to a speedy agreement. The Adriatic question will lie given for the time precedence over other questions, and pressed by continual studv, to its final stage.  "The settlements that belong especially v<t th#* treaty with Germany will in this way bv got out of the way at the same time that all other settlements are being brought to a complete formulation.

I Special. > The State Bank of Stratford was robbed early this morning by three bier who succeeded in making their escape with about $8,000 in cash anti $14,000 of Liberty Bonds. No trace of    the    robbers    had    been  found up to 3 o’clock this afternoon.  About 7:30 or H:00 o’clock this morning the three highwaymen drove into Stratford in a Dodge car. Two tit them remained in the auto while the third entered the bank by a side door, the bank not yet being open for business. Allen Suoddy, the cashier, was the only man in the bank ;.i the time. The robber forced    hun    to    open the    safe    and  after rifling    it    of its    contents,  locked    him    in    the vault,    throwing  the combination    and cutting    the  wires to the telephone ill the vault. It wa# nearly an hour later when others    coming    into the    bank    dis  covered the state of affairs and the imprisoned cashier released.  Persoi s on the street who saw the machine    in    front of    the    bank  stated    that    the two robbers    were  not masked, hence they attracted no attention. Mr. Snoddy stated that the one who held him up wore a mask and it is supposed he slipped this on as he entered the building.  MATTEK DE DIVIDING APTED DK GERMANY TD SETTLE.  SI M KAUAHI)  lly the Ass#Miat*d Press  PARIS, April 15. The reparations settlement problem still has hard times before it in connection with the question of distribution of the indemnity to be paid by Germany. The smaller powers are still to be heard relative to their share of this fund. Under the plan advanced by Great Britain and France approximately eighty-five per cent of the sumrealieed would go to the three big powers leaving fifteen per cent to be divided among Belgium. Serbia, Italy. Ruma. lia. Russia and others. A share of the reparations fund will under present plans go to Russia but will probably be turned over to France and Great Britain to' apply o n advances made to the old Russian government during the war.

Death indeed loves a shining mark and spares neither the youth ful nor aged, and even the chief treasure of the family may not escape his shaft. In this case the circumstances are unusually sad. Three or four years ago deceased was accidentally shot and for a time his life was despaired of. Although he partially recovered, he never regained his former health and his untimely death was no doubt du#^ largely to this.  wilson sails roo  HOME NEH WEEK  FA RIS,    April lo.

One follows a big dinner with a hearty dessert, too tempting to refuse. And that is often the final straw  Jiffy-Jell supplies a dessert which is healthful and enticing, yet it does not tax the stomach. The body of the dessert is formed by a little gelatine, sweetened and acidulated, dissolved in a pint of water. The flavor is a fruit-juice essence made from the fruit itself.  A few years ago a large wholesale grocery house in New York discontinued the sale of all so-called fruit flavors save lemon and orange. The reason given was that other fruit flavors could not be manufactured, so synthetic ethers, etc., had to be substituted.  But the makers of Jiffy-Jell have found a way to supply these true-fruit flavors. They make them by condensing fruit juice. Then they seal them in glass vials—a bottle in each package- so they keep.  Thus Jiffy-Jell is bringing to millions a true-fruit dinner-ender. It supplies the delights and the healthfulness of fruit. And, like fruit, it does not tax an overloaded stomach.  Mr. McCann says that J Lf fy-Jell has done more to put Waukesha on the map than all the Waukesha Spring Water that has been bottled for a century.—Adv.    *,  COMM!

A large shell exploding near him blew him up into a tree where he was caught by his cartridge belt on a limb and hung four hours before being rescued by hfs companions. One hip was badly injured.

Why We Are Working to Sell Victory Liberty Loan Bonds  We sold bonds the first time to get money for the government to mobilize the army and navy.  We sold bonds the second time to get money for the government to send the army to France.  We sold bonds the third and fourth times to get money for the government to purchase materials to enable these men to give the knockout blow.  We are now selling bonds to get money for the government to bring the men back home.  To buy bonds the first, second, third and fourth times was a duty. To buy them this time is not only a duty but a positive pleasure.  R. W. SIMPSON,  County Chairman.  LUTHER HARRISON,  Chairman Speakers’ Bureau.  W. D. LITTLE,  Director of Publicity.
