In consequence, when the expected blow comes they will be that much better prepared to meet if. The American troops have made all preparations and the (Hermans will get an exceeding jv warm reception if they try what the situation today incli •cates they have in mind.

ROWE CUSHING IN ON RE1 CROSS BADGE. Shrewd Old Gamesters Play the Red Cross it Get Dollars for Popery. The Menace—Jesuitical Rome goes to extremes in tin attempt to take credit, for tin Red Cross. She wou'd lik< for the people to become im bued with the idea that slit founded it. Of course she offers no reasou for her long period of lax activity between the time she authorized a red cross as a badge and time tin Red Cross oruanization came into being. Nor does she saj anything about her continued opposition to that organiza tion throughout itJ existence until the world war made is the most popular organization before the people and forced her onto the baud wagon. It is since that time thai she has been printing articles about the “Origin of the Red Cross.” One of these articles was recently printed in the Youngstown Daily Vindica tor and was used by a Kuighi. of Columbus in tl.e K of ( drive for war funds in his en deavor to persuade those who did not wish to contribute that Rome had a corner on everything good and that one man’s statement that Rome at one time opposed Red Cross was false. We are goiug to reprint tbs | article just to show you how these Jesuits go about their work. Note that 1 here is not a word iu it which claims that Rome organized the Red Cross. It merely claims that Rome is the originator of a papal badge for a certain Romish order and this badge is a led cross. There is no thing peculiar about a cross as a papal badge and neither is there any significance or connection between the non - Romanized Red (boss and Rome’s adoption of a cross colored red to distinguish one certain order. It lias noth ing whatever to do with the Red Cross organization and the Jesuitical attempts to so apply it should te exposed for just what they are. Here is how Rome seeks to cash in on the popularity of the Red Cross organization: The red cross as i badge of service for suffering human' ity dates back more than three hundred years, write? a correspondent to the livening Post, and its origin must, tie of interest at this time when it has expanded as a society into a multitude that minis ters to the physical needs of our army and navy here and abroad Camillas de LeHis was horn in the kingdom of Naples m 1550. After eeiving in the Venetian army, he went to the hospital of S in (income, iu Rome with an alt cti n of the leg. There iie was s. much impressed 1-y tin* ini rors aud filth of what was lit tle better than a pMhouse that he resolved to devote his life to suffering humanity, “to care for the piaguestriek en aud to nurse the shkin itheirowu homes.” At thir ty-two he was ordained a prieet, aud set about found ing a religious order “to serve the sick. "They shall wear a red cross neon h eir breasts,” said Camillas, “to remind them of lire suffering of our Lord Christ. This will give them stlvngThand encouragement.’ Pope Sixtus V confirmed the congregation in 1586, grant ing them in the brief a spe cial permission to wear “the li d (Voss.” This same red cot-sis the badge of service to 'ay, worn by every Catho lic religious order that takes cate of the sick, in every part of tiie world. This red cross lias hi‘r-ii bjergt'd in the leper sell cnents of Molokai and vt c la go car. in the cholera hospitals of India and the pestilence sfjickeu lands of the Far Fast, as well as on the battlefields of France. In lb - calendar St Camillus’ day fal's upon the 18th of July,'and at his eprcia' mass Uie.-e words aie chanted: ‘(Treater love hath no man than this that a man lav dow n his life for his friends*” i KEEP THE WORK GOING. War Savings Campaign Will Continue Until Amount is Subscribed. That, the War Savings drive will be continued thru July fourth in those counties — and townships which have not raised their quotas is the u-der of Slate director of War •Savings Col F II Fries, and Federal director Mr Otto Marx, in a telegram issued to ill county chairmen. The telegram reads: ‘Tf quota of my tc wn-'hip or county is not -ubscrib'd, continue drive unabated through July 4th to secure quota of each town ship cr county as a whole, ftifiniq ly better to drive on 10w hi in to start a new drive ia*er. Use Fourth of July celebration for taking pled> res.” The plan of continuing the Var Savings drive i'll every jounty, township and ward !as rai-od its individual quo* i in pledges i-: in keeping /ith i he principle of this pop* l ir loan earn ly, that every ndividual shall have a part i wiuumg tiie war by saving mil lending hU money to the A )v* rnment and receiving for he loan 4 per cent compound interest. Unless every indi vidual, township and county bears its j art of the loan, vvhicli is$20 to every iudivid <al, ihe real purpose of the " campaigu is defeated. That a State pledges its quota does not relieve each of its conn lies and fownships from the iv spous:biiity of pledging its quota, therefore, iv quest is made that counties which have already raised their sub scriptions see that each towns ship raise its subscription by July 4th. i urther orders have been issued from State headquar ters to tbs effect that county cha:rmen hold their organi zations intact and continue die War Saviugs diive with unabated v>g< r and effort. It is the opinion of Colonel Frits aiid his co-workere that more effective results can be had from continuing t lie work f the drive now rathei tbau disbanding the workers to be re-orgatrzed at a later date.
