AMERICAN AND GERMAN
The searchlight of war has brought
out many interesting facts, and one
of these is that the vaunted German
ef-iciency will not always stand the
test of colapnricon with American ef
The Germans boasted of being the
greatest farmers on earth. Investi
gation shows that in efficiency in ag
riculture, measured by the produce
per acre, America being. graded 100,'
Belgium leads the world, at 205;
Great Britain com'es second, at 164;
and Germany third, at 155; America
But the better test is the man test
rather than the acre test, and here
America leads the weord by over 2 to
1. Again, grading America at 100 per
farm worker, Great Britain produces
43 and Germany 41. The American
farmer cultivates 27 acres, the Ger
man farmer but 7. With the aid of
vast quantities of fertilizer the Ger
man produces more per acre, but he
produces at a much greatr cost per
bushel and he produces much less than
half as much per man.
THE PEOPLE ARE SAVING
Evidences are accumulating that
,the habit of saving among the Ameri
can people, especially among the pa
trons of savings banks and postal
savings, is outstripping the financial
demands made upon them by the Gov
While no exact figures are available
at present, it is known that postal
savings deposits have steadily gained
during the year 1917, and notably
since the 1st of .July of that year,
which was after the first issue of the
The reports from savings banks al
so show a steady gain, and the same
is true of cooperative building and
Nor have the people of small means
been the only savers. It is estimated
that the savings of the whole people
of the United States, ordinarily $5,
000,000,000 to $6,000,000,000 annual
ly, were increased to $14,000,000,000
to $15,000,000,000 in 1917.
The response of the people to the
national need of economy and saving
has been general and generous.
Director General McAdoo has an
nounced that while the railroads are
under the control of the Government
it is futile to impose fines upon them
for violations of the law and of the
orders of the Interstate Commerce
Commission, and it therefore becomes
the duty of the Director General in
the enforcement of the law and said
orders to impose punishment for will
ful and. inexcusable violations thereof
upon the person or persons responsi
It is also announced that when the
prompt public transportation service
requires it, employees will be required
to work a reasonable amount of over
time, but excessive hours of employ
ment will not be required.

tion of wages and hours, all requests
of employees involving revisions of
schedules or general changes affect
ing wages and hours will be held in
abeyance. The question of wages
when determined will be made retro
active to January 1, 1918.
The Director General states that if
he is notified of the location of spe
cific supplies for transport to Europe
and the port or ports in the United
States to which such supplies should
be sent he will guarantee the neces
sary transportation subject alone to
interruptions from blizzards and
All officers and employees of the
railroads, says the Director Geenral,
now serve the Government and the
public interests only. He asks them
to get the spirit of this new era-a
supreme devotion to country and an
invincible determination to perform
the imperative duties of the hour, Co..
operation, not antagonism; confidence,
not suspicion; mutual helpfulness,
not grudging performance; just con
sideration, not arbitrary disregard of
each other's rights and feelings; and
an earnest desire to serve the great
public faithfully and efficiently. To
save America, to save the world from
despotism, we must work together.
,A JUST AND LASTING'PEACE
The essential principles that must
underlie peace, as stated by President
Wilson, should be constantly kept in
mind. They show the greatness and
unselfishness and justice of Ameri
ca's war aims. Briefly they are:
(1) The final settlement of this war
must be based upon essential justice
and each particular case so adjusted
as will most likely bring a permanent
(2) Peoples and Provinces are not
to be bartered about as if they were
mere chattels and pawns in a game.
(3) Every territorial settlement
must be made !n the interest of and
for the benefit cf the populations con
cerned and not by way of compromis
ing claims of rival States.
(4) National aspirations must be
accorded all the satisfaction' pCsS ible,
with-.ut introducing new or p'rpetu
ating old element sof discord.
GONE TO REST
Died Feb. 19, 1918 in dopewell, Va.,
Mrs. Eltelia Brunson Black, ond who
was liked by everybody who knew
her. She was only 22 years and nine
months old. On the 3rd of July 1917
she became the bride of Mr. M. O.
Black, of Hopewell, Va., and made
this place her home. She was a great
sufferer, but she was asked a few
days before her death if she was
ready and willin gto go. She smiled
and said: "Yes, I only hate to leave
you all." The remains were brought
to Summerton to her father's resi
dence, where the funeral services were
held and several of her favorite
hymns were sung, one being "Face to
Face." After the services the re
mains were taken to St. Paul's for
burial . She leaves a husband, Mr. MI.

APPEAL TO THE FARMERS
To Put Savings Into Government War
Washington, Mar. 3.-In an appeal
to the farmers to put their savings
into government war savings certifi
cates Secretary of Agriculture Hous
ton today said:
"It is the patriotic duty of every
citizen who is in a position to do so
to invest in war saving and thrift
stamps and thereby help the nation
to win this war. The purchase of even
a twenty-five cent thrift stamp is a
definite contribution to this end. I am
confident that the farmers of the land
will not permit any other class to
take the leadership in supporting the
government in this crisis financially
