Gladwin, director of the Bureau of Nursftag, to every nurse in the Divis ion. Chapter members can help by im pressing on all nurses they know, the great need of personal effort on the part of every nurse, if the Division is to meet its quota for overseas duty. In the Lake Division only 43 per cent, of the nurses, 1,295 in all, have 1,543 have yet to come forward. In Ohio alone there are 5,300 reg istered nurses, and in France ,men are dying for want of care. Encouraging News. A cablegram has been received from Harvey D. Gibson, Red Cross Commissioner to France, advising that theFrench War Department has officially -adopted for the use in all Franch hospitals American Red Cross standard; surgical dressings. One of the factors entering into this decision was the excellent condi tion in which Red Cross surgical dressings arrive in France. This information will be a source of great satisfaction to the loyal army of American women who have so painstakingly manufactured mil lions)f surgical dressings. 0 - 4 Important Notice.

Never, so much as now, has the in dividual counted for so little. Individual rights, individual priv-j lieges, individual responsibilities have given way to the greater con sideration, the welfare of the people as a whole. For nations, not peoples or races, have taken in hand the destinies of the world. The individual has been pre-emptorily put aside. Whether liberty shall live or perish from the earth is for determination in the aggregate. It is not for any one iman to say. The Kaiser soon is to realize this. But there is one way in which you can. count. One way in which you may still make yourself felt throughout this storm-tossed world. You can make your little individ ual contribution to the cause of free dom, of world democracy, of perma nent peace. You can buy a Liberty Bond. You may otherwise be subordinat ed, effaced, shunted into compara tive oblivion and, made to feel that you no longer- count. But here you can take your little place in the sun. It's a chance of a lifetime; the chance of yours. D-bjmissiatv, 5 C ' i- avenue, to Miss Gertrude Herrington In the readjustment of affairs of the firm of Messick & Clarke, real estate men, of Lexington, Mr. Lacey J. Clarke, formerly of Paris, has sev ered his connection with the firm, and will continue in the business with offices in the old Lexington Leader office building on "Upper street. Col. George D. Speakes, of Paris, will be associated in the bus iness with Mr. Clarke as 'auctioneer, still retaining his business connec tion with Harris & Speakes, of Paris. fe isa fcs DOMESTIC SERVICE FOR THE PHYSICALLY DISQUALIFIED. About 15 per cent, of the men sent' to Louisville by local boards to be inducted into limited service for duty as clerks to the boards were re tained by the army service, Maj. Henry Rhodes said, on his return from Louisville, where he took com mand of his new force. Domestic service men grade pttys ically between general and limited service, and do not come within the purview of local boards. The fact, that so many men classi bed by local boards for military ser vice were taken over by the army caused considerable comment, as it was thought they were found physi cally fit for overseas duty and held. The Marchmont Oil Co., composed, chiefly of Paris capitalists, received news Saturday that a big producing well had been "brought in" on their holdings in the oil district. The offi cials were greatly elated when the news came, as it justified former pre dictions of a paying lease in the oil field. The Station Camp Oil Co., in which many Paris and Bourbon county peo ple are interested, "brought in" well No. 6, on their Frank Callahan lease, on Ross Creek, in Estill county, Fri day. The well was pronounced good for seventy-five barrel production daily, and was being pumped at the time the message was sent here. The same copipany has started drilling in a new well on the Frances Bingham lease, in the same county. A telegram was received here Sat urday by a local stockholder in the McCombs Producing and Refining Company, telling of Well No. 10 be ing "brought in" on the Adams lease in Wolfe county. The new producer is rated at one hundred barrels per day capacity. WASTING PRINT PAPER (Chicago Tribune.) While newspapers and magazines are asked to cut down their con sumption of paper, the Government printing presses are busily turning out tons of literature" much of which, it is safe to say, never serves a high er purpose than to clutter up the waste basket. An attempt is being made, we believe, to check this flood of printed matter, but thus far noth ing has been done about the Con gressional Record. The subject has come up in the House, and that old abuse, "the extension of remarks," is naturally the center of attack. It is hardly necessary to explain that a member of Congress, by obtaining "leave," can have anything from the poetical effusions of a small town bard to a campaign speech printed in the Record. And then he can re print it and frank it all over the United States. To abolish the "ex tension of remarks" would, of course, be a sad blow to those Rep resentatives and Senators who, for one reason or another, can't make speeches, but who find this a conven ient device for giving their constit uents the impression that they are causing the halls of Congress to re sound with their oratory. Perhaps a better scheme would be to put a heavy war tax on this use of the Record. BOOTLEGGERS ARRESTED Jacob Brown and Robert Wood, both colored, claiming Whitley coun ty as their home, were fined $25 and costs each, and sentenced to thirty days at hard labor by Judge Batter ton, on a charge of "bootlegging." The men were placed under arrest by Chief of Police Link, who found them with about ten gallons of whisky in their possession. The liquor was con fiscated by the court and held for possible presentation to the medical supply department of the Massie Me morial Hospital. s B-4 FIRE Insure with W.O. HINTON &SON,Agts j RECORD YEAR FOR CANNING IN DICATED. Reports from manufacturers of canning supplies who have conform ed to recommendation of the United States Department of, Agriculture in making of equipment indicate that the interest in home canning is in creasing rapidly. There is a wide spread demand for more equipment that will save labor and time in can ning. It is estimated that there has been during the year a 50 per cent, increase in the number of firms man ufacturing hojme canning supplies, an average increase of 25 per cent, in the quantity of equipment sold, and an increase of 300 per cent in the demand for rubbers of standard quality. Some of the department's canning instructions have been pub lished by outside parties in 10 differ ent languages and more than 100 business concerns have reprinted the directions for free distribution to their employees and customers.
