Davison, chairman of the War Council of the Red Cross, has eaid that if the government should offer him a check for $500,000,000.00 'or a check for only $100,000,000.00 and the work of the women of the Country, he would not even look at the larger check! He knew what he was saying, too, as the magnificent re sponse of the women of America has shown. Never before did woman shine as now; never before did she bo show that but for her aid the worst would have occurred. And the end Is not yet. The calls aro endless. Refugees have no underclothes, no stockings, little to protect themselves against the coming winter winds. The women of America are going to furnish these clothes, these stockings, are going to see to it that no French, no Belgian, no Italian child, or mother, shivers into a bitter grave before next spring. The Surgeon General of the Unit ed States is asking for thousands of sweaters, for hundreds of thousands of socks, and for hundreds of thous ands of articles of all kinds! Eng lish calls ring over the water and the American women remember what the English fleet did for us they do not forget! French women, whose soula are bowed with grief, are listening for those sweetest of all sounds, the click of needles that mean warmth, and the snipping of scissors that me am clothes for the children. - No babies in the history of the world have been better guarded than the American. Now all the skill, all the tenderness, all the love of Amer ican mothers finds limitless oppor tunities to help babies who but for them would have nothing at all! New England alone has three mil lion dollars worth of material wait ing to be made up and sent! Now is the time for a hearty pull together, to show the world that we really under stand! Klenzo Dental Creme Is as perfect as Dental Science and human skill can make it. The wonderful cool, clean feeling " Klenzo gives to the mouth is like a tonic. Even the children brush their teeth regularly if you give them Klenzo. At Rexall stores only. 25c a Tube J. V. THURSTON, Island Pond, Vermont ft; St. Johnsbury, Nov. 29.

We don't mean the miser he is one of the worst sufferers in the spirit. The sensible, prudent man who lives within his income and regularly lays by a little of his earnings, can defy war times. The best way to get the "saving habit" is to start a savings account with the Island Pond Nation al Bank. You'll take pride in watching it grow to pro portions where it will work for you.
