The influenza put the circuses out

Will we permit this ruse to be a suc

If you want to ''salt down" some

After being homeless for more
than four years, it seems that King
Alfred of Belgium can soon return
to his own, his native land. But not
to his throne. Xo more thrones in

Many wells in this section are as
empty of water as are many of Ger

It has been said that the Kaiser

While Pershing is pounding tlu
fleeing Huns, let the people at home
pound them with a six-billion-dollar

be disappointed if the bond issue is
not fully subscribed. It can be easily
raised if every person will DO HIS
PART. Have you done yours?
That threat of the government to
fix the price seems to have parallized
the cotton market, dealing a blow
from which it is not easy to recover.
Sit steady in the boat, however, as
continued holding will finally bring
an increase in the price. Thirty- cents
cotton is cheap cotton, considering
the price of everything which has to
be purchased with cotton money.
Ruin in Wake of Retreating Huns.
Being unable to take with them
the coal in the mines around Lens,
France, the Germans devastated
the surrounding country so that it
will be probably two years after the
war closes before any coal can be
mined. It will be at least five years
before the usual before-the-war quan
tityof coal can be taken from these
valuable mines. This is only one of
the hundreds of instances where the
Huns have left untold damage, and
in some cases absolute ruin, in their
wake. And yet these despicable peo
ple seem to expect peace with honor.
Stamp Out The Influenza.
It has been a long time since such
a scourge as the Spanish influenza
visited this country, and while the
crisis has been reached in some sec
tions let us not relax in our efforts
to check the spread of the disease.
Fresh air is said to be one of the
best means of fighting the disease.
Keep yourself as strong as possible
with nourishing food and then stay
away from other people, crowds, as
much as possible. See that every part
of the home has all of the fresh air
possible. By a strong, concerted eff
ort the laity can assist the physicians
in stamping out the disease which is
now dreaded by everybody, as com
plications seem to be not easily
avoided after the disease is contract
ed. Use every pound-not ounce
of prevention possible.
Card From Mr. Norris.
I have bought the Fire Insurance
business and expirations of of Mr.
J. T. Harling and will renew all the
policies as they expire on his records.
I have carefully looked after the in
terest of our people and trust they
will feel that their Fire Insurance
is in good hands.
I have obligated to pay $1,000.00
for the said business and hope by
renewal of all the policies to come
out in two years and will greatly ap
preciate the full continuance of the
Harling policies as they expire.

Watering Horses and Mules.
There have been many plans adopt

something to cat,

good hearted countryman.
"Can't you tell?" answered the
man. "Lock at the holes worn in the

The farmer's wife promptly
brought out the food, and the tramp
turned to go.
"Well! Well!" exclaimed the far
mer. "What made those noise in the
back of your pants?"
"Back-sliding," replied the tramp
as he hurried on.-Christian Herald.
"Mamma," said little Marion, "do
men ever go to heaven?"
"Why. of course, my dear. What

money to replace the building and

And such occurrences are not a

Most farmers are willing to help
an unfortunate neighbor, but they
expect a measure of co-operation in
return. When a farmer has refused
to join a fire insurance association,
he has refused to help, through the
organization, any unfortunate bro

the farmers he has turned down?
It pays to join a mutual fire insur

Farmer, join one as soon as you can.
