"The Kind That Lasts"
The so-called Federation of So
viets is a superimposed class rule en
a people in Russia who want to Be
democratic. It was put into power
by a small group of fanatically ex
treme social democrats, the reaJ
the conscious bolsheviki, under tfi
leadership of "Lenine, and has nev&r
at any time eipressed the will of t&e
people. The Soviets, beginning wih
the bigger cities, spread over Rus
sia in a very few weeks, following;
the original revolution. They were
socialists in character in the cities
and in the army, where the socialists
propaganda had been spread, but in
the villages, where s- the great
"masses" of the Eussian people live,
there was not much political educa
tion, and the soviet was simply the
expression of popular will of all
kinds. It was the town meeting.
THE FLOWER SHOW.
"I must tell you about a flower show
which was held early in the spring.
Flowers had been sent from all over
and most of the flowers had come from
greenhouses, for of course there were
only a few of the spring flowers out
Daddy paused for a moment and
then said : "The pussy willow families
were there. Some had been found
which had not opened and which were
still in their warm little furry beds.
They were so sleepy and they loved so
to dream and nap at this time of year.
"Many ofthe pussy willows too had
opened and were now lovely little
feathery flowers. And when all was
quiet the fairies came here and played
and this was what they heard:
u 'Hello fairies,' said the rambler
roses. Some were pink and some were
"Hello, ramblers,' said the fairies.
"Hello, fairies,' said some very big
red roses, and the fairies said, 'Hello,
big red roses.'
"'Hello fairies, look at-us. Aren't
we funny? But aren't we fine? What
a pity it Is we cannot neigh.'
Then the fairies burst out laughing,
for what should they see but make-believe
horses! They had been made on

a cobbler's shop, make-believe ones, but
just the same size as real ones.
"And these horses were covered with
vines of ivy that was all you could
see, and it looked as though they were
" 'Hello Ivy horses,' said the fairies.
You are certainly very fine, Indeed. It
Is a pity though that you cannot neigh.
Never mind, you look just as though
you could, at any moment!
"Hello, fairies,' called the flowers
in the sample gardens which had been
made for the flower show. There were
sample cottages and gardens around
them, there were hedges of all sorts,
beautiful Japanese hedges.
"There were lovely acacia flowers
the beautiful yellow shrubs or small
bushes, you know. There were fine,
expensive flowers, too, which were used
to living in hot houses, such as the
"'Sometimes fairies,' said the or
chids, 'we wish we grew out of doors
and were picked by children and
weren't so rare and costly.
"'Hello, fairies,' called the spring
flowers, some of which had been sent
from a section of the country which
was fairly near, but was a little warm
er than the other sections. There were
beds of tulips, two yellow beds, or
rather two beds of yellow tulips, there
were beds of pink tulips and beds of
tulips of all colors.
"There were hyacinths of blue and
hyacinths of white and hyacinths of
purple. And all these flowers had
come from warmer parts and told the
other flowers that It was going to be
warm for them soon, for the warm
winds and the sun and the old weather
man had told1 them so.

chat with them.

we'd like you to see us, for we're try

are wearing our best clothes.'
"And then the fafrfes laughed and
said, " 'We're glad yew wore your best
clothes, all of you1-'
"Then there was- a windmill which
was quiet now. And" there were bulbs
of many sorts, andf tfny pine trees.

Record Rye Crop.
Rye, along with barley and buck
wheat, has increased much in produc
tion to add to the war food supply.
About 30,000,000 bushels, the limit of
the crop before 1910, was followed by
gains to 43,000,000 bushels in 1914, 63,
OOO.OCO bushels in 1917, and 89,000,000
bushels in 1918 by far the largest rye

UNCLE SAM'S LAST
CALL TO SERVICE
Bring the Boys Home To F nish the
Job Another and Final Appeal
to Patriotism to be Made
YEAR IN AMERICA
There is no limit to the willingness
bf some men to sacrifice for the com
mon good, and such were overworked
during the great war for Democracy.
Elizabeth City has its quota of "such
men, and it is no exaggeration to say
they probably served the country bet
ter at home than they could have done
had they gone to the front.
Among the self-sacrificing patriots in
our midst is one man who gave the
government the best part of his time
for over six months, in managing the
War Saving Stamps Campaign in this
and several adjoining counties. He
was a tireless worker, and his district
made an enviable record.
In siite of the long service he gave
the erovernment during the stress of the
war, he has consented to act as County
Chairman of the Victory Loan. It was
not an honor he sought, but one that
came to him in such a way that he
felt that he could not refuse it. And
the community surely owes a debt of
gratitude to W. P. Duff, and every citi
zen called upon to assist him should
respond promptly and willingly.
Mr. Duff has named the following

Recipe for Happiness.
This gospel of happiness is one
which every one should lay to heart.
Set out with the invincible determina
tion that you will , bear burdens and
not impose them. Whether the sun
shines or the rain falls, show a glad
face to your neighbor. If you must
fall in life's battle, you can at least
fall with a smile on your face. Well

this city and vicinity are doing. It
would be interesting to know all the
trades, industries, profession and com
mercial enterprises they have engaged
in; how many own farms; how many
have acquired their own homes; how
they live, what they think and what
they aspire to.
