D. I. Emsa, ewe . pr o hit. BRINGING THE FIGHT HOME TO AMERICA. To-day everything seems favorable to putting th' Kaiser out of busi ness. Italy is chasing the Hun out of that country and France has halt ed the vaunted drive the Kaiser called the world to witness. On the Western front the American soldier is shedding glory on America. His heart is big and brave and his body is strong-and the IHun is afraid of him. HOW ABOUT THE AMERICAN SOLDIER AT HOME--IS THE HUN AFRAID OF HIM? June 28 is the day set by President Wilson for one of the greatest battles that has been fought during the whole war. EVERY MAN, WOMAN AND CHILD IN AMERICA IS IN THIS BATTLE, and the morale of our army at the front will be affected by it. The Kaiser is watching this battle more than any we have fought at home, BECAUSE IT IS MORE INDICATIVE OF THE STRENGTH OF THE PEOPLE. President Wilson has called upon every citizen of America to invest $20.00 in its war fund. This investment will not only show the financial pre paredness of each individual to stand the adversities of the war, but it will show the extent of the patriotism of the masses of the people who may not have been able to take advantage of larger investment in Liberty Bonds. It is the real test of ALL THE PEOPLE in their loyalty and fidelity to their country. IT SHOWS BOTH WHAT THEY ARE WILL ING and WHAT THEY ARE ABLE TO DO. Louisiana is proud of her part in the war thus far. She has not been found wanting, either in material or spiritual aid, and no part of the state is doing more than St. Tammany parish. We are furnishing sol diers and we are building ships to carry them to the battle front. But we are also reaping the benefit of the greatest industrial prosperity we have ever had, due to this war. We owe it to the Government to put some of this money into war service, and we will be watched to see if our patriot ism will stand the test. One of the greatest things that could happen to St. Tammany at this time would be to go over the top in this War Sav ings Stamp drive. LET'S DO IT! THE WAR OUTIAOK IS GOOD. Things are looking good at the front. The Austrian drive on the Italian front has turned into a fiasco. The Austrians are routed and still being pursued, the reported GermaPreserves to be sent to their relief not yet having put in an appearance. Two hundredcthousand Austrians were cap tured, killed or wounded and large quantities of guns, munitions and sup plies fell into the hands of the Italians. On -top of this, strikes and riot ing is reported in Vienna and the Austrian morale generally is very bad. The people are crying for food and Germany admits she is not able to send them supplies. On the Western front the Germans have failed in their drive and are now at a stand-still. American troops are constantly arriving and prob ably a million are now on the front or held as reserves. The Allies are in the best of spirits and are confident of winning. American ships are being turned out rapidly and more of those American troops that the Ger man prisoners say "fight like demons" will soon be marching on French soil. The American soldier has proved a wonderful fighter, and he is full of that "pep" that astonishes those abroad. Wherever he is lined up there is always something doing, and he never quits until he is shot down. Altogether the war out-look is good for the Allies. -- - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - - TIKES (C'F DANDRUFF HAIR STOPS FALLING Save Your Hair!

IT SHOULD MAKE A MILLION FOR HIM Cincinnati Man Discovers Drug That Loosens Corns So They Lift Out. Good news spreads rapidly and druggists here are kept ,busy dis pensing freezone, the recent discov ery of a Cincinnati man, which is said to loosen any corn so it lifts out with the fingers. A quarter of an ounce costs very little at any drug store which handles drugs, but this is said to be sufficient to rid one's feet of every hard or soft corn or callus. You apply just a few drops on the tender, aching corn or toughen ed callus and instantly the soreness is relieved, and soon the corn or callus is so shriveled that it lifts out without pain. It is a stick substance which dries when applied and never inflames or even irritates the sur rounding skin. This discovery will prevent thou: ands of death annually from lockja' and infection heretofore resultin from the suicidal habit of cu'tinf corns. -Adv. STOMACH TROUBIE AND CON STIPATION.

Our Army and Navy are staniing between you and the Hun. Show that you appreciate what that means by saving to the utmost of your abili ty and by buying War Saving Stamps that there may be more money, labor and materials to support this Army and this n1avy. "The duty of patriotism lies equal ly on young and old, rich ani poor, on clergy and laymen. There is no reason in creation for selecting our soldiers among men between 21 and 31, except that they are better able to do the physical wortj of the war than the rest of us. But the work of war must be done in homes, in churches, in schools, and in factories, as well as upon the battle fieid.s of the world. And the worst form of slacker-because he has not even the poor, silly reason of fear to ;. cuse him-is the slacker who is call ed upon to make only the minr sacrifice of money and has not the heart to make it." Secretary McAdoo says: "Let no one who genuinely loves America and wants to serve fail to enlist in the great army of War Savers dur ing the period ending June 28." Help fight the war. Pay your way with War Savings Stamps if you can not go to the front. Never fgrget the investment fea tures of War Savings Stamps. When you buy them you become a stock holder in the United States, the best corporation in the world. Help the terrified civilian popula tion now under the heel of the Hun.

Every druggist in town-your druggist and everybody's druggist has noticed a great falling off in the sale of calomel. They all give the same reason. Dodson's Liver Tone is taking its place. "Calomel is dangerous and people know it, Dodson's Liver Tone is per tectly safe and gives better results,' said a prominent local druggist. Dodson's Liver Tone is personally guaranteed by every druggist who sells it. A large bottle costs but a few cents, and if it fails to give easy relief in every case of liver sluggish ness and constipation, you have only to ask for your money back. Dodson's Liver Tone is a pleasant tasting, purely vegetable remedy, harmless to both children and adults. Take a spoonful at night and #wake up feeling fine; no biliousness, sick headache, acid stomach or constipat ed bowels.' It doesn't gripe or cause inconvenience all the next day like violent calomel. Take a dose of calomel today and tomorrow you feel weak, sick and nauseated. Don't lose a day's work! Take Dodson's Liver Tone and feel fine, full of vigor and ambition. -Adv. CONSTIPATION AND INDIGES TION. These are twin evils. Persons suffering from indigestion are often troubled with constipation. Mrs. Robert Allison, Mattoon, IIl., writes that when she first moved to Mat toon she was a great sufferer from indigestion and constipation. Food distressed her and there was a feel ing like a heavy weight pressing on her stomach and chest. She did not rest well at night, and felt worn out a good part of the time. One bottle of Chamberlain's Tablets corrected this trouble so that she has since felt like a different person. Adv. LEMONS MAKE SKIN WHITE, SOFT, CLEAR Make This Beauty Lotion For a Few Cents and See for Yourself What girl or woman hasn't heard of lemon juice to remove complexion blemishes; to whiten the sknI and to bring out the roses, the freshness and the hidden beauty? But lemon juice alone is acid, therefore irritat ing, and should be mixed with orch ard white this way. Strain through a fine cloth the juice of two fresh lemons into a bottle coptaining about three ounces of orchard white, then shake well and you have a whole quarter pint of skin and complexion lotion at about the cost one usually pays for a small jar of ordinary cold cream. Be sure to strain the lemon juice so no pulp gets into the bottle, then this lotion will remain pure and fresh for months. When applied to the face, neck, arms and hands it Should help to bleach, clear, smooth en and beautify the skin. Any druggist will supply three ounces of orchard white at very little cost and the grocer has the 1 mons. --Adv. THE LOUISIANA FARMERS NEF. D LABOR. The most tremendous issue of all human history will be determined on the Western front in France-and in Covington,. Louisiana. That issue is whether or not civilization and freedom as we know them shall con tinue to exist; whether the people of Covington shall be free or whether they shall 'be the slaves of Prussia; whether your property shall be con fiscated to help pay the German war debt; whether your family shall be subjected to the infamies of the Hun. The soldiers on the Western front are giving their answer. What is our answer? The war cannot 'be won unless we produce more food. More food can not 'be produced unless farmers se cure labor. Sufficient farm labor cannot be secured unless town people qualified for such service volunteer for farm work in their communities during the rush seasons of cultiva tion and harvest; unless all idlers are forced to work; unless high school boys are utilized when pos sible; unless every man now engaged in non-essential work helps to pro duce food in his parish. This will be hard, prosaic. unro mantic work-but without sufficient farm labor Louisiana will fail of maximum food production. Farmers would prefer to have plenty of permanent, well-trained help. Town people would prefer to keep out 'of the sun and avoid the backache. And both prefer to keep their families and their property out of the clutch of the Hun. Hard work in France and hard work at home will hold off the Hun. Nothing else will. The boys at the front are working! What about St. Tammapy parish? SOIDIER BOYS HAVE TO BE ElN TERTAINED. New Orleans, June 2$th.-"Come on. I'll e eat you at a game of checkers..' That's a challenge you don't hear as often as you should at canton ments in Alabama, Louisiana and Mississippi. There's a scarcity of checker boards, playing cards and dominoes at four cantonments in this division of the Red Cross. Many a soldier who has longed to beat somebody at cards has had to stifle his ambition because he could not get a chance at a deck of cards. It's the same way about dominoes and checkers. So, the Red Cross is asking people to send in gamed for the soldiers. Hunt up all of those checkerboards, dominoes and decks of cards that are lying idle around the house and send them in. They'll make some sol diers happy, as sure as anything. Mail the package direct to Harry T. Howard, Director of the Bureau of Military Relief, Gulf Division of the Red Cross, Postoffice Building, New Orleans, La. And much obliged!

Read what an American correspondent writes about one of our boys who had been doing his duty: "In a little field hospital west of Montdidier I stopped at the bedside of an American boy, one of those victims of the German mustard gas, with whipkte Huns are making all their present gains. His eyes were matteed with yellow pus and he could not see. His face was terribly burned. His lips were swollen and purple. His whole body had been turned the color of an Indian, and portions of it looked like melted flush. is thcugh it had been li'4jt.'d. "The fighting had been renewed all along the American lines, and Ger man wounded had begun coming in to our hospitals. I said to tais sol dier: " 'The boys are getting their re venge for you fellows to-night." He smiled through his seared lips, and in a voice so faint that I had to bend down to listen, he gasped, 'God! I wish I was back there with 'em!'
