To the men who run the railways of the
country, whether they be managers or
operative employees, let me say that the
railways are the arteries of the nation’s
life and that upon them rests the im

those arteries oiler no obstruction of any
kind, no inefficiency or slackened power.
To the merchant let me suggest the mot
to, “Small profits and quick service,” and
to the shipbuilder the thought that the
life of the war depends upon him. The
food and the war supplies must be carried
across the seas, no matter how many
ships are sent to the bottom. The places
of those that go down must be supplied,
and supplied at once. To the miner let
me say that he stands where the farmer
does—the work of the world waits on
him. If he slackens or fails, armies and
statesmen are helpless. He also, is en
listed in the great service army. The
manufacturer does not need to be told, 1
hope, that the nation looks to him to
speed and perfect every process; and 1
want only to remind his employees that
their service is absolutely indispensible
and is counted on by every man who loves
the country and its liberties.
Let me suggest also that everyone who
creates or cultivates a garden helps, and
helps greatly, to solve the problem of the
feeding of the nations: and that every
housewife who practices strict economy
puts herself in the ranks of those who
serve the nation. This is the time for

that they would perhaps render a very
substantial and timely service to the
country if they would give it widespread

[ the corn or callous dries up and lifts right off
without pain.
He says freezone dries immediately and
never if flames or even irritates the surround

very little at any drug store, but will positive

from one's feet. Millions of American women
will welcome this announcement since the in

“We cannot avoid our place and part in
the conflict and are in honor bound to re
sist the aggressive autocracy that tears
up treaties as mere scraps of paper; that
tramples on the weak, casts the helpless
into bondage and inflicts upon innocent
neighbors the fearful miseries of wanton
invasion and devasation. Let us not
hesitate to affirm that this is our religious
as well as our patriotic duty.
‘ ‘Christianity is not altogether a religion
of gentle submission. It is more that all
else a religion of duty, and duty calls us
not merely to patience and long suffering,
but also to conffictto the redress of wrong
and to the substantiation of justice.
“American citizenship is an ancient
and formative passion for freedom, a love
of fair play and a tolerance which keeps
the realm of opinion as free as the reaim
of action. These are the principles that,
realized politically, make a democracy.
Realized religiously, they make a church
of the free spirit.

ter of great guns and big battalions, but

three years ago there was the keenest
competition for every contract offering,

nothing short of phenomenal when you

Who says eating corn is a hardship?
Corn comes to your table in twenty
different unif irms and every one of them
a perfect fit.
American corn is the biggest and best
crop of any kind grown in any country
of the world.
Search the earth around and you will
find no other product of the field so beau
tiful as corn in midsummer, standing in
long, straight rows like soldiers, with I
green banners streaming. In autumn
these rows turn to myriads of tents,
which fill with their yellow ears ten
thousand thousand cribs with food too
good for any king.
Corn alone saved John Smith’s colony
at Jamestown, and so gave our continent
its first English settlement.
Corn kept from starvation the Pilgrims
in Massachusetts and led very properly
to the first Thanksgiving Day.
The American Indian placed the white
races under an unpayable debt when he
introduced our ancestors to corn.
Whether you eat “roasting ears” or
hot corn muffins, golden cakes just off
the griddle or a warm, thick bread, you
cannot go wrong.
! And our farmers this year will raise
about thirty bushels of this heaven-born
food for every mother’s son of us.
I tell you, if Homer had not died a
couple of thousand years ago he would
write us a liner epic on corn than he did
about the siege of Trov.
No Substitutes this Year.
! Evidently the draft in 1017 is going to
be different, from that of the Civil War
days in an important respect. There will be
j no sending of substitutes, fn those days a
man, who was drafted and did not want
to go had the privilege of sending a substi
tute. Very few men of weath actually
, served as drafted men. Substitutes cost
them, according to the local supply of
able-bodied men, from $300 to $1000.
j The substitute, actually in the service,
often turned out to be a man who had to
, be watched, for his spirit, of patriotism
generally did not rank high. But he was
never as had as the bounty jumper. The
bounty jumper was a man who enlisted,
got his bounty, entered the service, de
serted, and then enlisted somewhere else
and got another bounty. The eagerness
of certain towns to fill their quota was so
great that they often made no inquiry into
the identity of the men whom they fur
; nished, and the business of bounty-.jump
| ing was regularly organized.
I As things look now, we are going to
j have an honest draft and an honest en
i forcement of it, which shows that the

! No New Regulations About Children En
tering Maine.
I It is stated by the secretary of the State
I Board of Health that very frequently in
quiries have been coming from prospective
visitors to Maine whether there is some
some new or whether rules and regulations
are to be made restricting the bringing of
children into the State this season, or in
some way limiting the movement and the
convenience and pleasure of such visitors.
The answers to these inquiries have been
very emphatically to the effect that there
is no foundation whatever for such rumor;
that there is nothing in any new legisla
tion enactment or in the regulations of
the State Board of Health which indicate
that there is to be a more rigid control of
children entering the State; and that if
any change whatever is made in this State
or in other states, it will be likely to be in
the direction of the mitigation of the
severity of some of the outside rules and
regulations which made unnecessary
trouble for summer visitors last season.
One of the Most Important Animals for
the General Farmer to Raise, Both for
Meat and for Money.
No branch of live-stock farming is
more productive of satisfactory results
than the raising of well-bred swine, if
conducted with reasonable care. Hogs fit
into the modern scheme of farming on
nearly every farm, and are the most
important animals ',o raise both for
meat and for money. They require less
labor, less equipment and less capital,
make greater gains per hundred pounds
of concentrates fed, reproduce themselves
faster and in greater numbers, and give
a quicker "turnover” of money than any
other animal except poultry. Farmers
of the South and West particularly have
awakefied to the merits of the hog and
are rapidly increasing their output of
pork and their bank accounts.

no need for people to get hysterical over
the food situation. Even though the
food purchasing power of the dollar has
dropped to thirty-three cents or less; even
though sixty-six cents or more of that
same dollar is finding its way into the
