SHALL GERMANY FORECLOSE?
Of course it is everybody busi
ness now to win the war. Every
body is talking the war and most
everybody who can fumble aheet
of poper and pencil is trying to
write about tha war. We have writ
ers and we have thiirker-writers. All
are writing but. Bad to aay it, there
is so much leas thinking than writing.
Herbert Quick, a thinker-writer,
had a strong article on the war re
cently which appeared in a iournal
of almost, if not quite, national cir
culation. In this article ho penal
izes upon the farmers going to war
and delivers himself in this manner:
"The farmers of this country could
carry the war to a victorioua conclu
sion even if all the rest of the nation
- should quit The rest will aot ouiL
but we could win it without them if
we had to do it
"The farmers of the United States
can whip Germany. We can whip
them with guns. We can whip them
wun our products. We can whip
them with our money.
"Every fanner in the United States
must remember that the war has a
first mortgage on every cent be has.
I ne last spare cent in the pockete of
every farmer In America should bo
devoted to the war.
"The Kaiser began foreclosing his
mortgagee on our farma when ho de
clared ruthless submarine warfare.

YOUR RED CROSS
An Army Without a Gun
By MEREDITH NICHOLSON
Of the Vigilantes.
THE Red Cross is the greatest instrument of
x mercy the world has ever seen. Noble as the
service of mercy and helpfulness was in Civil War
days, the Red Cross surpasses it immeasurably not
only in the rane and variety of its effort, but in
efficiency and effectiveness.
The Red Cross is, we may say, the arms of the
mothers of the world reached out to their sons to
bind up their wounds and comfort them. The Red
Cross is an army without a gun that wajres war Saf
only upon suffering and heartache. Where the

THE RED CROSS MAN
By AMELIA JOSEPHINE BURR.
Of the Vigilantes.
Broken with pain and weariness
And tapped with vile disease,
Back to tha land of ruined towna,
Of murdered men and trees,
Through Switzerland from Germany
Tha tralna of wreckage ran,
And on the French frontier they found
I A Red Cross Mao.
And when to what had one been homo
Thoae haggard exilea came,
Younff wheat waa green abovo tho scan
Of ateel and blood and flame
Round now built houaea whero onco mora
Tho work of life began.
And atill they found to welcome them
tK. A Red Croat Man,
Thero tho huaband clasped again
Tha wife ho mourned aa dead
The child waa on ita mother breaj.
Tho old wero comforted. " -
What wonder If they hope to find
