TRENCH FOOT SLIPPERS To the Women of Bourbon County :- In our quota for September 1, in Red Cross work, is a request for 500' trench foot slippers (250 pairs.) These slippers should be made of velvet, velveteene, corduroy or heavy cloth. They are then lined with out ing flannel.' It is irpossible for us to buy "the necessary material and we are asking the patriotic women of the county to send us any garments or pieces they have no use for, to be used in this way. An old pair of cloth trousersy of a coat, can be- cut into several parts, as the slippers can 'be pieced. We published an appeal some days ago, but the response was so small we have less than 50 slippers madev Are we to fail in this, as we have done' in nothing else? We have been proud of our Tecord up to this time. May it always remain untarnished. If any friend desires to buy a remnant or piece of newmaterial to send in, it requires two-thirds of a yard of 27 incH goods to make one pair. Send all material to the Red Cross rooms, at the Court House, in Paris. If it is more convenient for. ladies out in the country, materials maybe sent to Mrs. Annabelle Wallace, or Mrs. D. C. Lisle, at Leesburg; Miss Florence Hopkins, at Little Rock; Mrs. Letcher Weathers, at Clinton-ville,- and Mrs. Jno. Collins, at North. Middletown.
