On May 30, uniting In a splendid spirit of brotherhood, the allied na tions will pay reverence to the heroes of the world's war. America's Decor ation Day has been chosen by the In terallied Veterans as the day to pay homage to the dead. The cemeteries in France will bo thronged by u reverend multitude of men, women and child ren, these little French children who remember our hoys. There will he »national demonstra tion on that day In honor of the men to whom wo all owe ho much. Mrs. AlfredBudge, Idaho Chairman, for the day's observance, requests that on May 30 everyone wear the Poppy which the American Legion adopted at Its last national convention as Us mem orial flower, "tbo poppy of Flanders fields—the little red poppy of France that groWH wild everywhere in France." "Through the cooperation of the American Lesion, replica,a of the real popples will Tie offered for sale to be worn on Memorial and Poppy Duy," says Mrs. Budge. "The real popples are too fragile to be transported, but the American and French Children's League has arranged the best substi tute for the real, flower, which Is the poppy mnde by the women of France who know our boys, by the children whe loved them, by the people who now live In the very places where America's best fought and won and where so many sleep. The profits from the sale of the opples will go to the relief of Children In devastated France, Memorial Day popples will be offered at 10 cents each, or mote as one feels generously Inclined." The State Chairman's appeal for the day's observance continue»: "We cannot go to Flanders fields, but wo cnn all wear an outward sign In memory of our men ho that, the citl sens of our Hlate will take full part In the 'national demonstration of rev erenoo and admiration' for the men who served in 1917-18, bringing glory to the flag and honor to the country." "Every true American, man, woman ami child, should consider It n sacred obligation to wear the bright rod poppy on that day. The American Le glon in choosing the poppy of Eland ers fields as the memorial flower to be worn on May 30 1ms requested that the emblem be not commercialized I therefore the flowers wore made In I the very places where the boye| bought." "Lot the school children hear of the deeds of heroism of our soldiers nnd ask them, ns future citizens, to pay homage to the gold star heroes. Tlmy crossed the sens, they went to Franco, to fight, to die, so tlmt we of America would never know the horrors of war at home. Untainted liy love of gain, solely for the love of liberty and hu inanity, they kept up the noblest tra ditions of American history." "Let us all therefore, on May 30 pay our tribute of respect and admiration for America's soldiers who served In the lato war, not forgottttng Of course our heroe of former conflicts. And let the emtdcMii o fthnt respect he u re plica of the real poppy that was made In France." f T GENUINE èfc Bull DURHAM tobacco makes 50 fl ood ciflarettes for 10c "AM) K.VJOY THE SPIRIT .. . Whatever douhts the layman may entertain regarding the history and conception of the Church of Jesus Christ, Latter Day Saints he cannot, doubt the sincerity and simplicity of its creed. It has a certain appeal that welds Its people together and com mands the roBpect o (the wold. It can be called a religion for today, because Its prophets and saints are living be ings, its precepts are daily practiced. The following words quoted from a Mormon in last week's Dress must strike a responsive chord in the heart of every human who tolerates reli gion in any form: "It Beems to e a part of, the hu man make up to love a dead hero or a dead prophet. He Is only without hon or In his own country and In his own time. Wé May as we have atways said 'O that we would have lived In the days of our fathers, we would not have stoned the prophets as they did,' but the while we are building monuments to the memory of the 'dead ones we are stoning the living. "Before the clos» «I the earthly mis sion of Christ, it was a social disgrace to be seen in his presence. Those of the higherups who believed in his word, would come sneaking around in the night to confer with him. It was only the humble, the meek and the poor who received his word gladly, it has ever been so, when living at the time of the prophets their message croates so Utile emotion in our hearts that we dismiss it with scarcely a thought." The semi-annual stake conference ut Rockland today and tomorrow should add leaven to the spirtual life of the community and the presence of President Orant of the I,. D. S. should add materially to the zeal of those in terested in the religious life of the community. It is to Do hoped Unit the gospel will he widely preached and that many Indeed will enjoy the spirit thereof. KEEPING THE BOV ON THE FARM.

LEST WE FORGET THE BLUE AND THE GRAY. to I In commemorating National Poppy Day In honor of those recent heroes who made their sacrifice on Flanders Field and other battle grounds of France, let us not forget those veteran heroes whose service for their country has long since been their religion. We speak of the boys of "61 and the men of San Juan Hill." It Is a stirring sight to see young America on parade with the scars of battle «tin fresh from a world con cllct. It is a reverent moment when the hoys of the G. A. It. come witli hulling step down the avenuo nobly carrying on to a fife and drum. And the men who fought on the Spanish Maine, to them is honor due.

M Dear Mrs. Ellsbury: I have just re ceiver a birth announcement. Is it customary to send a present in ac knowledgment of a card of this kind? MRS A. A. Persons who are close friends of either parent usually send a small gift for the baby on receipt of a birth announcement. Others merely send a note of congratulation. put road Dear Mrs. Ellsbury: What is Stehu mann-Helnk's name In private life? A. Madame name Is the same in public and pri vate life. She was diverced from Win. Raff, Jr. (her third husbad), in 1914. Dear Mrs. Ellsbury: I am a young man very fond of dancing. Whe nl go to dances is it all right to dance with girls I don't know? I often see girls I would like to get acquainted with, and I always treat them respectfully. Schuman n-Helnk's K. A. It Is not proper for you ta ask to dance with a girl whom you have not met in a conventional way. Girls who have been carefully reared will not accopt an invitation from you if they do not know you. And if you in sist upon asking them, they may not respect you or want, you as a friend. If you wish to know a certain girl, find comeone who knows both of you and ask to be introduced. Dear Mrs. Ellsbury: I have been going out often with young man for a year. A few weeks ago I hurt his feelings. He said then that he was through with me, but he still comes to see mo when I invite him. Do you j think he still cares for me, or shall I give up trying to win him back? B. A. Evidently the young man valqes your friendship or he would not con tinue to accept your invitations. If you have not already done so, you should apologize to him for hurting his feelings. Then you should let any further advances come from him. If he really cares for you he will ask if he may call. It will not be necessary for you to invite him each time.

I have tried to talk to her about it, but she says +jthat she doesn't want to regard any one seriously just now. Shouldn't she go out with older rather than younger *|rnen? MOTHER. A. If your daughter wore thinking of marriage, she shou'd, of course, consider this difference in age and weigh its possible disadvantages. Your letter implies that she has been accepting the invitations of only this young man, to whom you object because of his age. Since she does not wish to "regard anyone seriously" now, she certainly should not confine her men friends to this one. She should accept occasional invitations from others. Perhaps you have not made this suggestion to her. You might explain that it is not that you object to the attentions of the younger boy but that it is better for her to have many friends. It is not wise for a girl to give her whole time to any man unless she is engaged to him. We wonder if the new council will put In a new crossing across the rail road In American Falls.
