Tho sweetest word of tongue of pen, It's sounding o'er and o'er again more sweet each clay to draft-age-men "Exemption!" It's the Httlo things of llfo that count. It takes little drops to make up the mighty ocean, and little bonds to buy tho mighty lmpllments of war. "The melancholy days are come, ' with their prophetic winds sighing of winter heaps of snow, red noses, bad colds, cold bills, doctor bills and all kindred ills and bills. The man who six months ago bragged nbout whnt he would do If ho were In the draft age, is bavins a lawyer fill out his questiouaire for fear he will let some claim that might get him exempted slip by. The Library War Servlco of tho Army has been compelled to pur chase 000,000 books on mechani cal and technical subjects to supply the soldier's insatiate demand for more and hotter reading matter.

Newsprint has taken another jump, and the consequence will bo more expense on the publishers of newspapers. This will Increase Tho' Herald's running expenses and It will bo necessary for us to have all "back subscriptions or cut tho delinquent off of our list, after November, 1. No paper is allowed to 'carry a subscriber more than three months In arrears. So if you want The Herald longer, pay up. This is a time of meditation and of prayer. If ever our people should bo In a reverent attlturo whou frlvolites nnd shams Should bo' cast aside, it Is now. This is no day for frolic and fun, no timo for the trivial things that used to bo our soul's delight. Rather, wo should take a moro earnest view of things and pay the greatest heed.to tho mighty questions that lio before us, as wo launch out Into the future's uncharted sea. When Napoleon stood besido tho pyramids of Egypt ho Inspired his troops to battlo with these words, "Soldiers of Franco, tho centuries look down upon you!" Today tho American people, whoso freedom has been purchased with life blood of countless heroes, may truly say, tho centuries aro looking down up on them. Shall wo forfeit tho llhorty they have bequeathed to us? Shall we mako It null and void, and brand ourselves as a nation of money-grabbing profiteers?
