Maladden, 14ch. 25.-The pretty sun
shiny days, fif'' (ackling of hens and
the farniers out in shirt-sleeves re
pairing lot fences tell uts more plain'
ly than words, that the husy spring
days are with us. The farincrs of the
United :'tates face a stpetndous, as
well as nonentous task. I ct. the call
of our own soldiers, the call of our
allies, the call of the starved little
ones of war-cursed l' urope cause each
'tf uts to work a little harder, practic
a little ;elf-de(nial while we answer
their call heartily and cheerily, "Yes,
yes, he of good leart, Wjh shall f'eed
you, God willing."
