Washington Oct. 1. ? Subscriptions to the Fourth Liberty Loan have been more numerous and larger than at this stage of any of previous loan campaigns. This was indicated today in telegrams receive! from all sec? tions of the country. Actual totals in the campaign to raise $0,000,000, 000 in three weeks were not available but Treasury officials belicv that a report could be obtained from every district by tomorrow night. "From the reports now at hand," said a statement issued at loan head? quarters tonight, "it can safely be as? serted that sales arc moving much: faster in the early days of this cam? paign than they did duping the third Liberty loan drive.'' Trains Are Moving. The twenty-four war exhibit trains moving through the country are given much of the credit for the enthusiasm of first days. Thousands of people daily are passing through these trains, reports say, and staying after the trains have gone to hear speeches and enter their subscriptions. From many districts today reports that the throngs were so great they could not pass through the cars during the stay of the trains. In the New York district, more than $2,000,000 of bonds were sold from the two trains on yesterday. Subscriptions in New England for the first two days were (07,000,000 of which (45,000,000 came from Massa chusette. The Pacific coast had sold $50,000,. 000 of bonds at the close of business last night, reports from San Francisco said. Subscriptions in Hawaii on the opening day were (3,401,000. The Richmond and Atlanta dis? tricts report more subscriptions than could be tabulated. Negroes through? out the South are reported to be sub? scribing geneerously. In this county the Liberty Loan campaign is moving along One. The committees all over the county are getting busy, and will put Tazcwell in line with the other progressive counties of the Slate. The campaign was given a great, boost in the county Sunday by many speakers. A large amount in bond sales has been reported at the diff? erent speaking places. To the Citizens of Tazewell County: When will the war end? The strength and unity of the effort put forth is the answer. Germany is nearer defeat than ev? er before but the task remains great. It cant be accomplished by the mil? lions of soldiers in France. It re? quires the combined efforts of free? men everywhere. The army must be supported to the limit by every man and woman in the United Stales. The chance is at hand. It came with the opening of the Fourth iberty Loan. Each one who can must buy, buy now and buy to the limit. Any fail? ure to support this loan to an ex? treme effort borders on disloyalty. It's a failure to support the boy who is fighting your battle in France. There are moro than two million rea? sons why you should buy bonds. Ev? ery soldier and sailor is a reason. If the boy at the front gives his blood, how dare a man withhhold his gold ? The boys at the front are writing for you a deed to perpetuate your peaceful possession of property ami your right to live in the land of the free. They are writing it with their own blood. Your purchnse of bonds is the expression of gratitude. Are you fit to live? Prove it, or do like Judas and go to your own place. Tnzcwcll County's allotment is $550,000. It must be raised by the 19th inst. Why not raise it by the 12th and join the whole country in celebrating the discovery of Ameri? ca on that date. The strongest ap? peal I can make to you is Duty and: Service. The response will be the measure of your manhood. C. R. BROWN, County Chairman. NOTICE TO THE AVOMEN. To avoid confusion, it is urged that the Womans Committee in this Liber? ty Loan solicit only the women for bonds, nnd leave the men to be so? licited by their own committee. How? ever, should the men voluntarily of? fer any good bonds to the Womans' Committee they should, of course, be accepted. MRS. J. W. II ARM AN, District Chairman. FINE FARM FOR SALE.

This is an appeal to the women of Tnsewcll to come to the help of tho Red Cross organization of the town. The Red Cross here, in trying to meet the requirements of the organization in Washington, is overwhelmed with work and we cannot meet our obli? gations unless the women of the town who have never rendered any assist? ance come lo our help and discharge the duly that devolves upon them as patriotic citizens of the community. The membership of the Red Cross: ] la Inrge, hut the faithful women uro few indeed. The great, majority of our people seem to he of the opinion that when they pay their annual dues of one dollar each, they have dischnrg cd their full duty to the Red Cross. The average number of workers In the surgical dressing deportment is about ten. The average daily num? ber in the work room is about twelve! The Red Cross here has been organ? ized since July, 11117; tin- amount of work done bv the organization und shipped to Washington und thence to our sioldiers is wonderful! But this | work husdiccn done by the few faith? ful women of the town who seem to I have some appreciation of the Ingbert] things of life. Women who have been willing to sacrifice their personal | pleasure ami home duties in order to serve our soldiers at the front, and they deserve great praise and cred? it for the work they have done und '.he sacrifices they have made. There are a large majority of the women of the town, however, who have no lot or parcel in the matter! As more sol? diers enter the service, the demand Upon the Red Cross grows heavier sind these faithful women who have been doing this work now have upon them a burden heavier than they can hear. The Red Cross has been rath? er severely criticised recently because some soldiers were permitted to-go to I camp last week without being fur? nished with sweaters by the Red Cross! This is not the lir?! contin? gent of soldiers that hail to leave without sweaters, but it was the larg? est number that has so far gone at j any one lime. Tho reason they were not furnish? ed sweaters is that we did not have them, and it was impossible to fur? nish them. The ladies who do the knitting have worked nobly but the demand upon them was greater than they could meet. That's the reason. If the critics had been doing their duty for the last year in faithfully assisting in Red Cross work, this con? dition may not have arisen. It is not I much help to say you will knit sweat? ers and send them to these boys. The question for you to answer is "Why havn't you done it before this?" If you are working in Red Cross work then you have the right to criticise, but if you are unwilling to help with this work you have no right to crit? icise the good women who are work? ing. . Plense boar this in mind. There must be ns many as fifty women in this town who have never done any work at the Red Cross work rooms; who never even enter these rooms, and never offer their service. Your services arc needed and need? ed badly and the ladies who have borne the burden of this work would welcome your assistance. You have no idea of the satisfaction you will have from the consciousness of hnv ing rendered some service and having] done something useful for others. Try it, if only as an experiment! J. W.
