The Ford is my car,
I shall not. want another.
It maketh me to lie down in wet
It soileth my soul,
It leadeth me into deep waters,
It leadeth me into paths of riducule
for its name's sake.
It prepareth a breakdown for me in
the presence of mine enemies.
Yea, though I run through the val
leys, I am towed up the hill.
I fear great evil when it is with me.
Its rods and its engines discomfort
It anoineth my face with oil,
Its tank runneth over,
Surely to goodness if this thing fol
low me all the days of my life, I shall
dwell in the house of the insane for
ever.-- Sussez Herald.

NO SLACKERS WANTED.
During the campaign next week,
for United War Work, there must be
no slackers. The people at home will
look askance at them, the boys at
the front will despise .them and their
names will be anathama. There is no
place in this country for the man or
woman who refuses to stand behind
the boys over there. They are Ger
man sympathizers to say the least,
and should be in Germany. Our boys
will find out the name of every one
who fails to help them now when
they return and such a person will
have no recognition. They will be
treated with contempt and scorn as
they should he. Therefore, let me
warn the people of their danger in
the future 'and urge them stand be

the last call for help for the boys,
and if we fail, woe be unto' him who
causes the failure.
