He was denied exemption after passing the physical examination Nothing daunted, he appealed from the decision of the county board, claiming physical disqualification. The District Appeal Hoard at the cus tum house did not think his claim jus tified. Then '. MM applied for exemp tion on the grounds that the crops he produced on a farm were augmenting the food supply of the country. "Nothing doing again," the board aid. Finally in desperation, he filed a claim with the same board for exemp tion for industrial reasons. The parti cular industry he cited was that of a school teacher. After the board deni ed this claim the members shook their heads wearily and gave thanks that there was no other claim Zeno might file with them. The president is the only appeal source remaining.

The Lexington Red Cross Convention. The first State Convention of the Red Cross was held iu Lexington, Kentuckv August 22nd and 23rd and was attended by more than 5OO delegates from various Chapters iu the State. Kvery section was represented. All of the sessions were characterized by great enthusiasm and the deepest interest At the begin ing of the war Kentucky did not have a single Red Cross Chapter, It has I31 Chapters now and every single one of them are enthusiastic working organiza tion. Iu the reports from the Chapters many of the rural counties reported that as the result of a weeks membership campaign more than 1,0m joined. In Shelby county 2, loo members were se cured 111 the county in a week. The Red Cross is confronted by the laigest undertakings, not Mat to allevi ate the suffering and wounded on the battle front, but to administer to the comfort of our own soldies and to help the stricken in Belgium, Prance and Servia. It is proposed to have five labor atory cars iu this county so located that one of them can be at any cantonment iu twenty-four hours in caseof an epidemic of any kind of disease among the soldi ers. Canteens will be established iu Franca iu the second line trenches, one for every division of 37,000 men. There hot coffee, tea ami lemonade w ill be served the fighters in the first line tren ches, iu place of the stale water they now have to drink. Iu France there are 601), OoO cases of tuberculosis The Red CrOM will put an army of physicians ami sani tnry experts in that country not only to save Prance from the white plague, but to protect our own troops there from the disease In Franca in I916 the mortal ity among infants was very gn at Twen I) four children under one year old iu every I.OoOdied while the birth rate was only eight in every thousand. This hot rible condition is due to the lack of care of the mothers iu this stress of war and to improper food and improper attention. The Ainericiati Red Cross will devote its best efforts to save the babies and the mothers as well. The organization for home service will not only look after the boys iu the cantonments, but will look after the families of all soldiers whether in France or in this country. Word was brought from Washington that there would be great suffering iu France this coming winter unless the Red Cross met the .onditions w ith 1,50!), OIK) woolen sweaters and other woolen garments The great things that the Red Cross can do to make it possible to win the war, created a profound impression up on the delegates. The Red Cross has grown from 2o0,(loo members when the I'nited States went into the war to more than 4,0oU,oo(). This however is only four members to every hundred of our popu lation. Stress was laitl upon the fact that there should be at least twenty-five per cent enrolled as members of the Red Cross. Hardin county has less than two per cent membership. The major iiy of men ami women iu this country have 110 other way to express their pat riotism ami devotion to tu. ien who will light our battles iu France than to become members of the Red Cross, aud for every woman w ho can sew or k nil to it so. It was in. ule plain that ( Ulls not only a pieasuie an. I an honor to we. 11 a Re. I Croat but a duty to belong There should be no slakers in this won derful oiganiatioii, this "Goad Sania tarisiu" of the war. We should all be w illing to sacrifice and serve our coun try and nothing else should be consider ed until every one has done all that is possible Fai.ahethtowu News.

"porta from ail eouwaa indicate an augmented car supply. The credit lor this is, not altogether due the railroads the shippers are doing their part io Dandling equipment promptly and in loading it to full capacity. With the people behind them the railroads are able to show results never before obtained. The railroads must within the next N dan move 67,000 men of the regu I ir army and M0,0U0 men of the Nation al Guard to their various training ramps. Some idea of this task may be had when it is understood that to move merely one field army of .SO.OIK) men, cars madi up into .'166 traius with 366 locomotives and train crews, are required. While these troops are being moved the trans-portation of commer cial freight, war supplies and passen gers must be performed. At Louisville cantonment alone the raiboads have delivered from June 26th to August 23rd, 1,477 cars lumber and 512 cars miscellaneous freight, a total of 1,100, This 2,475 acres ot farm lands have within something over two months beeL transformed into a city nf comfor table buildings, sewerage, electric lights, telephone exchanges and splendid roads that will shortly house 41,5(10 soldiers. Kvery possible effort is being made to increase the movement of coal. In Juue the railroads were able to handle 26 percent more than in June laU year. This was done with an increase of only percent in cars and less than one half of one percent iu locomotives. Thank You Mr. Black. The Breckinridge News, Cloverport, Ky.
