A. F. KING , Editor L. F. ABELL ...... Business Manager Entered at the Leonardtowo Postoffice as second class matter under the Act ot May, 1896. LEONARDTOWN. MD_ THURSDAY MORNING. MAY 23.19 U Notice to Correspondents: Our correspondents are requested to send in their communications in time for current issue. We are most anxious to publish all communications, but copy must be in this offiee by 4 p. m. Tuesday. j - - 1 J. - .'JU.'USI Siam. n ■ m ' iiiiwwwp'.- u The big Red Cross Rally in Leonardtown on Tuesday; May 21, proved a grand success and threatened to rival even the Liberty Loan meeting in point of attendance and enthusiasm. For an afternoon meeting during the busiest sea son of the year, it drew a remarkable crowd, filling every seat in the Court room and number ing among the audience the representative citi zenship of every district in the county. From the impression made upon our people by the able speakers who addressed the meet ing, it is safe to predict that St Mary’s will maintain her unblemished record and respond to the Red Cross appeal in a manner that will place her safely “over the top.” It is a pity that every Red Cross worker in the county was not present to hear the story of the Red Cross and its activities presented in some of the best and most effective addresses that have ever been made in St. Mary’s. If the message they brought could be carried into every home in the county, it is difficult to be lieve that any single individual would refuse to contribute to a fund that is being used to lessen the hardships of war and to give to every sol dier and sailor the touch of home life and its comforts and even of mother love, the absence of which is a greater hardship to our boys than all the shot and shell they will ever be called upon to face. Apropos of the spint of sacrifice and of the willingness to give to the Red Cross, which should be instilled in every heart that beats with patriotism and appreciates the wonderful work that this organization is doing and will continue to do until peace again settles over the world, we can imagine no stronger or more. touching appeal than the following appearing ini' the Baltimore Sun of Wednesday, May 22, contributed by some loyal friends and workers enrolled in the service of this great agency of mercy and relief: A year ago, we just entered the war. The horror of it had not been driven into our souls. Our boys were just starting for the training camps. We were even, some of us, hugging the pleasant delusion that it wouldn’t last long. And the drive for the first Red Cross War Fund came along. I We subscribed—liberally, it seemed at that/' time. Today, when our sons and brothers are pour ing into France to the relief of the Allied troops —when the casualty lists are beginning to grow longer and longer—we are called upon to sub scribe again-this time to the second Red Cross War Fund. The casualty lists are beginning to contain familar names. God only knows how soon we will be reading them with wet eyes. And the Red Cross Fund means more to us than it did a year ago. It is time to stop thinking in terms of money. It is time to stop having an adding-machine heart. And right now—in the midst of this Second ! Red Cross War Fund Campaign—is the time to start anew! I The time grows short. Don’t wait for solicitation—follow the promptings of your I heart and voluntarily give your contribution to - the Red Cross worker in your neighborhood* to ; the campaign chairman of your district, or send j it to Mr. L. J Sterling, cashier Red Cross; War Fund, Leonardtown, Md. Don’t wait until the last hours of the campaign. Give ! your donation now, or sign one of the pledge ; cards, with which all the workers are supplied, ' and help your district to raise its quota. Every i I one should give according to his means, and un- ‘ til he does this he has not done his full duty to- j wards the men who are fighting our battles. \ An Unequalled Record of Great Construc tive Work. This quotation is from a man who speaks with authority: . No other organization since the wOrld began has ever done such great constructive work with the efficiency, the dispatch, understand ing, often under adverse circum stances, that has been done In Prance by the American Red Cross in the last six months. That is claiming a great deal for the Red Cross. Yet those who have read of the variety and extent ef the work done can very well be lieve it. The hospitals eqnip|x*d and supported, the ill and the woundedx k t(pated and nursed, the food and drink furnished to men on the fighting line, the ambulances furnished and driven, the recreation centers established, the homeless children cared for, the refugees sup ported and made working mernbeis of society again, the artifical limbs furnished, the homes and convales cent hospitals maintained, the snr gical dressings and socks and sweat ers supplied, the re-education of mutilated soldiers, the fight against the scourge of tuberculosis, the building of warehouse and supply stations and canteens at the ports and at the front and in between—to organize work of this kind on a scale to meet the needs of millions of soldiers is certainly something stu|iendous. Very probably no other organisation since the world began has made such a record. We have said that the statement quoted above was made by a man who speak* with authority. He is a man who speaks with unequaled authority on this particular subject, one who has greater facilities than any other American for knowing ex actly what the Red Cross has ac complished, one who is ordinarily not prodigal of compliments, one who would have every reason to be critical if the work hail not been well done. That, in fact, is the testimony of General Pershing himself. Ought we all not be glad that we can take a hand in this work. Oughtn’t we I be proud to be connected with it? If so, let vs grab at the opportunity to subscribe to the Red Cross Fond. f Now Advertisements 1 FOR SALE -Chop, aiocly ground, *e 11- ml zed, % each wheat, corn and oat*: 11.50 cash per bushel LED M WATHKN. j 5-2*41.

' Catarrhal Deaf mm Ceaast Be Cured by local apolicatloos, as they cannot reach the diseased portion of the ear. There is only one way to eutecatan-b --al deafness, and that is by a constitu tional remedy. Catarrhal deafness is caused by an inflamed condition ot the mucous lining of the Eustachian tube. When this tube is Inflamed you have a rumbling sound or imperfect hear ing, and when it is entirely closed, deafness Is the result Unless the in flammation can be reduced and this tube restored to its normal condition, hearing will be destroyed forever. Many cases of deafness are caused by catarrh, which is an inflamed condi tion of the mucous surface*. Hall's Catarrh Medicine acts through the blood on the mucous surfaces of the system.

The Farmer’s 1 Share j Live stock is marketed from farmer to consumer at a lower cost than almost any other farm product. The United States Department of I reported in 1916 that the farmer gets for his cattle "approxi mately two-third* to three-fourths” of the final retail price paid by the con sumer for the resulting beef. Under normal conditions, the farmer's share of retail prices of various farm products Is approximately as follows; Butter 71 per cent CATTLE 88% to 75 per cent Ell* 65 per cent Potatoes 55 par cent Poultry 45 per cent Fruits 35 per cent The difference between farmer'* price and retail price represents the necessary expanses of packing, freight and whole sale and retail distribution. Swift 8t Company not only performs the manufacturing operations of pre paring cattle for market In its well equipped packing plants, but it pays the freight on meat to all parts of the United States, operates 500 branch distributing houses, and in most cases even delivers to the retail butcher. All ' H this is done at an expense of less than 2 cents per pound, and at a profit of only about l /4 of a cent per pound of beef. f Sjjf * Large volume of business end expert if' management, make possible this Indis pensable service to the live-stock raiser and to the consumer, and make possible the larger proportion of retail prices received by farmers.
