A Typical American Mother.
Since so much has been said about
the war situation, we should -like to
iell you of an instance that recently
came to our notice. A mother a
plain farm woman was telling us
that her oldest son had been drafted.
He is a fine young fellow, barely
twenty-one, and her idol.
"He's always done the best he knew
how in everything," she said, "and if
.he's got to be a soldier I want him to
"fco on doing the best he can. It's
breaking my heart to give him up "
She caught her breath and turned,
fcway for a minute, then went on:
"I lie awake nights thinking about
IL, I wonder if he will have to suffer
from cold while we're warm at home.
I wonder if he'll ever come back "
She stopped at that and went back
to her sewing, and we thought she
vwould say no more. But in a minute
.she dropped her work in her lap and
"I'm glad he passed the physical
examination," she said, "though if
he hadn't he could stay at home with
us. I've tried to take care of his
Jiealth, and to teach him to do so,
from the time he was little. I meant
for him to be a strong, good man,
whatever he was called upon to do.
Of course I never thought of this.
But when he goes I shall know that
X have helped him to go as a man
ihould, and to be what a man ought
o be. It's no more than I ought to
o, or any other mother."
Again she was silent; and we could
&y nothing, though we tried to think
t some comfort.
"I Wonder," she went on quietly,
"'if this government knows just how
much it asks of us mothers. I won
der if it knows."
We want to tell you that there are
many women whose quiet heroism is
as deep as that of this mother who
felt that in giving her boy she was
really giving a part of herself, and
that her service had gone to make a
part of his efficiency. There was no
demonstrative heroism about it, just
plain sacrifice and pain and with it
all a pride in the fact that her son '

to selfish feeling. "If he's. got to be '
a soldier I want him to do the best
be can." That was the keynote, and
to us this plain, middle-aged woman
n her calico dress seemed to person
ify America's brave womanhood in all
walks of life.
A very earnest appeal has been
made for our women to limit their
use of knitting wool.
So acute has become the shoitage
cf khaki wool that hudreds of wo
men workers throughout the United
Slates are forced to sit idle, their
hands tied by lack of material with
which to help the men in France re
sist the cold winds of winter.
In an effort to combat these con
ditions a movement has been started
rimong the patriotic women of the
country to create a widespread inter
est and effect a reform.
The reason for the scarcity of
Ich&ki wool lies in the demand of wo
men throughout the country, are
making for colored wool with which
to make themselves and their families
sweaters, regardless of the great need
qt the soldiers. These women have
received the title of "pink patriots,"
and a campaign started to curtail the
use of wool for private purposes.
This campaign will consist in part
c an appeal to women to knit only
for soldiers. The War Department
has authorized the use of khaki col
ored, wool only, and an appeal will be
made to the department stores to send
Jjack to the factories the many color
ed wools they have on hand and have
.them dyed for patriotic use.
The campaign posters read, 'Wo
men Only Pink Patriots Wear Knit
ted. Garments. Our Sammies Need

r Enlisting the Children.
In uniting all the forces of the na
tion for the common purpose, the
pchools have not been forgotten.
President Wilson has issued an ap
peal to all school officers to "increase
materially the time and attention de
voted to instruction bearing directly
jdh the problems of community and
aational life." His plea is not mere
ly for a temporary enlargement of
the school program for the period of
the nvar, but "for a realization in
yublic education of the new emphasis
which the war has given to the ideals

The enlistment of tea.cb.ers and pu
pils in a course which will give
school children a 'deeper understand
ing of their country and government,
their organization purposes and
ideals, of the individual's duties and
obligations as a citizen of the repub
lic and of the world, must be highly
beneficial. It will make better men
and women of the boys and girls and
make a better country of the United
States when they become its guides.
The vision and foresight for which
President Wilson has become world
famous were never better exemplified
than in his purpose to enlist .Young

The country newspapers of Ken
tucky have contributed more in pro
portion to their ability and the means
of their owners than have any other
citizens or enterprises to assist in
the war. It costs money to furnish
paper, ink, linotype composition and
labor, editorial work, and other fea
tures connected with giving public
ity to the Red Cross, the army and
navy work, the Liberty Bond issues
and the numerous other enterprises
that never would have succeeded
without the help of the newspapers.
All this work .has been cheerfully

While no definite information has

has been annuonced in Washington
following the passage of the war rev

The interpretation of this bill is
that first-class mail matter, such as
letters, etc., will be raised to three
cents per ounce instead of two cents,
as at present. Therefore the cost of
sending letters under two ounces,
heretofore costing two cents, will be
laised to three cents, and postal
cards will be two cents instead of
More definite information is being
awaited at the Paris postoffice. The

Finding herself in an unaccustomed

she got off at one of the stations,
