There is no finer sight in this old world than perfect blood loyalty fam ilies bound by the ties ot blood, cemen ted into one compact band to promote and defend the interest of the whole. The hour has struck when this call is ringing dear and. loud above all others in the ears of Hi? American people. Every city, every town, every hamlet and every community in the land has given of its best beloved blood to swell the expeditionary forces on the battle fields of France. These men have gone to fight OUR battles. They have of fered their all in our service. The blood tie holds them firmly to the task which they are dedicated to. We have the word of the commanders that their sacrifice is complete that the blood loyalty is perfect. But is theirs to be the only demon stration ot the power of blood loyalty? What power worthy the name, if he has a friend fighting his battles, will not back him up and support him to the limit of his power? Is the sacrifice to be out of all proporticn to the gratitude of the beneficiary? These thousands, these hundreds of thousands, who have gone, are going, and who are yet to go flesh of our flesh and blood of our blood are ap pealing to us through every affection of the human heart fpr SUPPORT, for SUSTENANCE, for COOPERATION. forPOWEIt. These we must furnish or their sacrifice will have besn in vain. liut we Americans need to be told lht the very essence of blood loyalty Is sacrifice. Not only a professed will ingness to sacrifice "if necessary," but real sacrifice the tctal subordinating ot our interest to theirs. Coming down to grim realities, the success or failure of our sons "over yonder" will depend on whether or not we at homo will sacrifice to the tunc of twenty billions of dollaia year It, There is absolutely no other way, This Is the amount that Congress has allotted to the task, and it must all come from the people, and that over and above their own necessary expen ditures. Armies are not fed and clothed and armed and equipped with amunitlon simply by proclamation or by "appropriations." These can only authorize the necessary expenditures, the concrete supplies must come from our labors and our savings and our sacrifices. Mothers, fathers, litters, brothers, friends of our soldier boys, are we heeding the blood call? Are we not only "willing," but no we respond to every tbrob of our heart's blood to every call? Or aru we by our lethargy and Indifference and selfishness, manu In the working out of the farm prob lems the coming season the country is up against some stubborn facts. It is useless to blind our eyes to the situation we are short of farm workers, and that at a time when even more are needed than at any time heretofore. The working of the selective draft may give some relief, hut cannot entirely remedy natters. Even without the loss of the thousands of young men recently called, the farms have been short-handed for several years. In this connection we would call at tention to some facts that should in terest us. It has been noted for some time that many farmers, after years of effective work on their farms, haye left them aru moved to the towns, leaving their lands In the care of ten ants. This has been bad for the farms in many ways, pat ticularly In that it deprived the lands of the care of men L .j !..J .. both so vitally nece&aarv at this time. These men are still in the towns. hundreds of them, thousands of them. While they may be a substantial factor of the town force, their presence is at this time most urgently demanded on the farms. Every farm in the land is crying out for the guiding hand and brain of its owner the one person who should have the deepest interest in iU success. In this crisis of the nation's life. every owner of a farm who has left it wherever possible without too great sacrifice should return to the soil and give to it his best tabor and thought. It is not merely the matter of hit daily labors, though these would count large ly in results. These is the. more im portant fact of his experience and broader knowledge of farm problems. His hand at the helm would be an in spiration to the entire f Am force and would count powerfully in the final results. There could be ro finer exhibition of patriotism than for the ex-farmers of the country, wherever and however situated, to return to the soil at least through the period of the war, when they could be of such untold aid to their country. What a great old world this would be if all the expressed sentiments of hu manity were real, genuine, sure-enough what they profess to be. liut Satan originated the art of deception back there in the infancy of the race, and he and his minions have industriously per petuated it. His amazing success is due to Ills ability to, as the small boy Would put It "appear what it ain't." We now call it camouflage. Of all the various brands of human counterfeit, the demagogue camouflaged as a patriot is the most contemptible.'' Patriotism is a fine thing, a sacied thing, but it counterfeit patriotism Is Unspeakably disgusting. Yet we see it all about us. It mistakes noise fur ac tion'and words for sentiment. Its om niscience Is equal to solving the most knotty problems of the war. Its self sacrifice is capable of any devotion if the salary Is sufficient. Its renuncia tion is beautiful until it is discovered that there Is nothing to renounce. Its devotion to duty is sublime until It is known that the person stands to gain much and lose not at all. In the old American game of poker there is one practice known as bluffing which returns good results if success fully put over. There is, however, i counter practice of "calling the bluff' that sometimes give amazing teturns. When you meet with 'one of these blatsnt patriots who only wants an opJ nortuuitv to und the war, "call his band." SENATOR HARLAN Demands Icquiry Into Slump of Hemp Prices. Frankfort, Ky March 11. -An in- qnl.-y into the cause of the slump of the Kentucky hemp market just at the time when the farmers are ready to sell the biggest crop in years and b de mand that the Attorney General instit ute proceedings, should the inquiry to be conducted by the Commissioner of Agriculture develop evidences of con piracy In restraint of trade, 1s provid ed for in a ioint resolution passed by the Senate this afternoon on motion of Senator Harlan, of Hoyle county. Senator Harlan said that in response to demands of the Government for fibers lor use in equiping ships and other purposes. Kentucky farmers raised a record crop of hemp in 1917. The 191C crop brought 15 and 16 cents, and the needs of the trade are just as great or greater now than then but the highest bids made this year, with little intiArent Interest on the part of the buyers, was 11 cents. It is an expen sive crop to raise and requires much labor. It was explained that there is a shortage of cars, but information has been received from Director General McAdoo that plenty of cars are avail able. Senator Harlan said he was not ac cusing anyone of being deliberately responsible for the slump, but declared the condition warrant" investigation. NEXT DRAFT TO BEGIN MARCH 29TH.
