Uncle Sam pushed the clock ahead one hour to give more light. Take advantage of it. You owe it to yourself and your country to make every minute count. Use your car passenger or com mercial to the limit. Samuel P. Colt, president of the United States Rubber Company, helped awaken the country to the economic value of the automobile last fall. He said " Everything on wheels must be used and mobilized. "The automobile is second to the railroads as an adjunct and supple mentary to them in collecting and distributing merchandise. "Owners should use their cars, both passenger and commercial, mors and more." Make the most of your car by using the tires that will extend its usefulness to the utmost. , - ' Use good tires United States Tires.

Cresw-ell, a well known music com poser; Once in the south a commercial traveler came into a hotel office near midnight asking for a bed. "Not a vacant room in the house" .was the reply. "But I must have a room! I haven't been in bed for three nights. I must pull, out of this town before daylight tomorrow morning. Give me a cot! The reply was, "Our' cots are all engaged! There is one man has a double bed by himself "." Why didn't you say so at once? . IH take the other half of that bed!" "Not so fast, the man in possession is a' colored man!" The traveling man went up into the air with language that ' would have to be printed in red ink, but presently his imperative need of sleep won the battle and he crawled into bed with the negro. During the dead sleep into which he immediately fell some wag who had witnessed the scene in the hotel office took a bottle of liquid shoe polish and blackened the face and hands of the traveling man. Wakened at 2:30 a. m., he grab bed his luggage and made his train. As' he handed his ticket to the con ductor the latter said, "My man you are in the wrong, car! The next car forward for you!" "What do you mean?" cried 'the traveler. "I mean that the Jim Crow car is the next for ward, and I want you to get a move on you in that direction!" replied the conductor with a sharp edge to his voice. "But I am no nigger!" shouted the traveling man. "Sure you are and a mighty black one at. that," was the rtply. The passenger turned to the mirror in the pannel and threw up his hands, "My God, they've wakened the wrong man." Beloifc Gazette. A Madison man recently went to a military training camp to see his son who was on the verge of depart ing for "over there." His son had in vested in Liberty Loans and taken out soldiers insurance until he received only $8 per month out of his $30 pay, after the amounts are deducted. The man offered his son $20 to have for spending money on his way over there, but the boy refused the money saying, "If you have $20 you want to1 give away, give it to the Red Cross or some other organization engaged in war work, where it will do some good. I can get along alright. 'And the man said he found lots of the soldiers with the same sprit. You men with .money who have not subscribed to the Y. M. C. A., Red. Cross or for any Lib erty Bonds, think this over. This boy ii offering his life and money too. Madison News. Are you complaining of the high cost of living ? Well, Abigail Adams complained of the same thing. Per haps after you have read the follow ing prices quoted from her letter to her husband, the second president of the United States, you 'will count yourself lucky, however, to be living now instead of in Abigail's time. This was Abigail's price list in 1776: Meat $1 to $2 per pound. Corn $25 per bushel. Rye $30 per bushel. Potatoes $10 per bushel. Molasses $12 per gallon. Flour $5 per cwt. Cider $40 per barrel. Cheese $2 per pound. Butterin $2 per pound. . Sugar $3 per pound. v 'r In 1779 sugar-rose to $4 per pound and tea the same. . In 1780 butter sold for $12 a pound and tea for $40. Such were the prices in Revolutionary vines when we were only trying to carry on a war and feed ourselves at the same time.

THE KAISER AND THE UNDER WORLD STRIKE The workmen of old Satan's gang have all gone a strike. They say -the men up here on earth did something they don't like. They don't seem loath at all to tell, just what has raised the fuss, For inquiry has led them to state things like this to us. ' We all have struct and will stand pat, , , until you play us square. This game of yours will never work that you planned up there. You have worked thing3 out very nice with superhuman skill In trying to consign to as that scoun- dril Kaiser Bill. "Now we don't want him back down here (we had him for a spell.) Because he is so vile and mean, this didn't seem like hell. You seem to -think we just delight in scorching things like Bill; It might be true if he would burn, but he's too hard a pill. Our loyal old commander-in-chief, (old Satan is hi3 name.) Could never rest at all in peace, since first the Kaisar came. So we expelled old Kaiser Bill and he ' ' . landed up there. - -And since that time this thing we've run has had the best of care. .. "When he came here we pounched on ' him and thought we'd., treat him - i - bad; . We branded him with every iron that Satan ever had We forked him in and gouged up . in ' every furnace place, And thought a dose of brimstone then would end him in disgrace. "But he is simply just so stale and such a hardened pill. That, don't you know, all fires here wouldn't scorch that Kaisar Bill. So we knew then the only thing that . we could ever do, Would be to send him back up there and let him deal with you. "We've heard a lot of Uncle Sam and of those men of his. But we have always failed to meet i- - those fellows in our burg. We know indeed, they must be great, to tackle Bill and those Because he could have chased us all from hell if he had chose. "Ther's one thing now that we must say."to Uncle Sam up there. And that is just to play the game, but always treat us fair, And don't you consign Kaiser Bill to i us again for Well! - - We have ' too . much -self respect . to I f nuoie iua m neu. - -.- r -s- -:.

THE JOY OF LIVING A Paolo girl, who by the way was born on the plains of Kansas, and now is in her first year at college, recently prepared a class paper entitled: My Autobiography: "When we lived at Wa-Keeney my days were happy, I might say, the happiest, for it was there that I grew old enough to apprecite the joy of liv ing. There I had, the measles, chicken pox, whooping cough, pink eye and therel took my first kindergarten les son at the school, and also my first lesson in barn climbing. And there too I remember the pasture through which we cut across to school, the pasture with its daisies." Western Spirit A MESSAGE TO YOUNG MEN Young man, life is before yon. Two voices are calling you one coming from the swamps of selfishness and death, where success means death, and the other from the hilltops of justice and progress, where even failure brings glory... Two lights are seen: in your., horizon one the fast fading marsh light of power and the other the slowly rising'sun of human broth erhood. The ways lie open before you one leading to an- ever lower and lower plain, -where are heard the cries of despair and the curses of the poor, where-manhood shrivels and posses sions rots down the possessor; and the other leading off to the highlands of the morning where are heard the glad shouts -of humanity and, where, honest, effort"-isjewarded with' Immortality.
