doesn't make it any less important that this loan should be
subscribed. It has to be, because we spent most of this
money before we asked for it."

WASHINGTON, D. C, Oct. 15.
The great Virginia apple crop is
coming to market, and Washington
war workers are making raids upon
the apple pie counter. A good many
of the girls from "the old home
town" remember the days when the
neighbors used to send in an apple
pie and thought no more of it than
do the heroic kittle stenogs who now
divide their chewing gum with their
chums.For chewing gum in Washing
ton is as common as chiggers in Mis
sissippi, and as respectable as grape
juice m Jjincom, .Nebraska, even
though it is six cents a package on
many snow cases. At tne restaur
ants where they still have a bill-of-
fare apple pies have attained the
commercial dignity of being listed at
ten cents per cut while in the more
magnificent establishments, where
"menus" tell the order of the day, the
prices are from fifteen to thirty
cents; thus raising the price of the
baker's product from sixty cents in
cheap places to one dollar and eighty
cents for one pie of six standardized
cuts in swell hotels.
Now, good juicy apple pies are sup
posedly made principa?ly of apples,
and it is a pretty mess when the
contents spread between the crusts
made of a few cents worth of white
flour, treated to a varnish of real
American lard, is put on the counter

pies have advanced several hundred
per cent since those days when you
could get a glorious golden-brown
piece of pie for a nickel aj; a swel,'

manently abandoned the five cent
zone a price left for only a' few
things that one has to purchase. The
sugar for apple pies used to sell at
twenty pounds for a dollar; but, even
though sugar is now so scarce that
everybody is economizing on it, it re
fuses to recognize the ancient nicke
a pound schedule. American white
flour, American lard, and American
spices have shot upwards in com
mercial scale, and have added their
own particular evidence to the claims
of the man at the bakery, and the
man at the pie counter against un

"This is the time for America to correct
her unpardonable fault of wastefulness
and extravagance." Woodrow Wilson.
Extravagant use of the telephone is wasteful.
It is wasteful of the man-power and woman-pow
er of the nation.
Women are taking the places of men called to
the colors and it is becoming increasingly difficult
to get a sufficient number of competent women to
handle the ever-increasing number of telephone
It is a situation for the telephone subscriber to
consider. They can help:
By refraining from making unneccessary calls;
By prohibiting younger people, clerks and ser
vants in their homes from using the telephone for
By reducing the length of conversations to not
over FIVE MINUTES; and
By always referring to the Telephone Directory
for the correct number.

MAKE DELTA VISIT
Emory Dale, a resident of the town
of Delta, who was in the city yester
day, said that a crowd of people af
flicted with Spanish Influenza were in
the depot there for several hours
The victims of the disease got off
the northbound Cotton Belt passen
ger train which arrives at Delta at
1 o'clock and went to the depot to
await other trains, he said. There
were 13 in all and some of them were
quite sick. The waiting room of the
depot is a small place and all were
crowded together, somelying on
floors and in other positions.
It is said that they were from
Campbell and other places on the
Cotton Belt. They were at work m
the cotton fields and other places' and
when the epidemic struck Campbell so
many became sick it was hardly pos
sible for all to receive attention,
They were trying to get home, where
they could be better cared for it is

exercise the privilege of conversion, but should do
so promptly. Delay will result in overburdening

Treasury Department by making it necessary to

result in the loss of the privilege of conversion al
