Perhaps you havo gotten tho idea that tho Red Cross is peculiarly a town fad, nnd conducted chiefly by tonder-henrted old maids and gos. slpy matrons. Nothing is farther from tho truth. Tho Red Cross is a nation-wide movement to provide for tho comfort of our soldior boys In tho camps and trenches. Perhaps tho old maids' hearts aro touched by tho marrlagable chances going Europe ward and tho matrons movd by feel ing of their own dear boys moving fluidward, but all ot us havo a duty to perform In this laudable move ment. Tho humblest citizen who Is enjoying tho comforts of home and family, should give at least his dol lar as a contribution to the comfort of all who aro risking their lives for his country.
