We trust that you can get your

charge of this matter. Meetings
should be arranged wherever large
audiences can be obtained. The
best and most patriotic speakers of
your county should be engaged for
these meetings. The State Council
of D?fense will furnish speakers
wherever possible if requested. The
meetings should have a dignified
and even religious character rather
than a character of jollification, and
the aim should be to thoroughly
awaken the spirit of patriotism
among the people and direct their
thoughts to national service. The
solid facts of the war situation
should be strongly presented and
the people thoroughly impressed
with the importance of unanimous
and hearty support of the govern
ment to the end that our national
ideals may be promptly vindicated
against that unscrupulous imperial
ism to which might and nothing
else makes right.

bounty organization. Please get to
work at once, and have your report

based upon the standard of truth,
honesty and virtue. He stood fori
his church and loved its doctrine.
But Lewis V. Claxton is dead.
Every home in the Phillipi section
mourns and every heart is sad, but
he has fought his fight. His armor
has been laid aside; his warfare has
ended; .the victory has been won
and his memory blessed.
