Arthur Griffith, Siutt Fein leader and
editor of their paper. Nationality, de-!
dares no home rule should be acccp- ;
table which did not give Ireland the \
' right to raiso and maintain its own
army and navy. Ho declares Norway
and Sweden, on less taxation, are able
to do this.
A member of the Nationalist party, j
believing In home rule but not In an
Irish republic, answered:
"Norway and Sweden support tbelr
own navies by their own taxation, ana
as a result are so pitifully weak '.hey
have had to endure the loss of nearly
half their 'merchant marine through
German submarines. I question wheth
er there would be any comfort for ireland
in Independence of that kind!"
America's vast aviation plans have
brought especial joy to Ireland. It
takes 180 yards of the finest cambric
to make the wings of a single one of
the thousands of airplanes America
| plans to build. "And this cloth can
! come only from Ireland," say the on
thusiasts. "Irish linen, made from
Irish Ilax, can have practically monopoly
prices henceforth.'
Flax is Ireland's prime Industrial
crop. This year it covers 107.000 or
Erin's acres?an increase over last
year of 15,900 acres.
Said one authority, "America's huge
military aviation scheme alone will
call for over nine million yards of
Irish linen, a s'rip of cambric over
5,000 miles Ions! In one airplane, 'he
monster ship's wings would span 'he
whole Atlantic from New York to
Queenstown!"
Ireland expects also to be the terminus
of the trans-Atlantic aerial service,
which aviation experts are predicting
after the war.
While the Irish farmer is prosperous
as never before, the industrial north,
especially the Belfast shipbuilding district,
has had its war prosperity. And
to Dublin the Irish convention has
brought not only crowds and money,
but the dawn of a new hope for a se'fgovcrned
and prosperous Ireland.
It's a r-ie.v Noise.
"I Just told you. Tommy, to stop

BE CAREFUL HOW YOU
USE THE JD CROSS
Emblem Is Hedged About
With Some Very Impressive
Regulations.
Because ot the growing misuse ol
the Red Cross emblem commercially,
the American Red Cross has just issued
a new warning to those who may
be violating the law regarding it.
While much of this misuse of the emblem
is unintentional and through excessive
zeal, the National Red Cross
can no longer acquiesce in these violations,
many of which have been and
are of a serious nature.
Under the statute, the Red f'rnss ?mblem
can only be used h ity. it
cannot be used in the , ,-e or
sale of Red Cross butto. as except
upon such authorize!.o.t. Many
novelty manufacturing houses and
stores, taking advantage of the great
increase of popular interest In the Red
Cross, as well as the growth in membership
to nearly four millions, have
put on sale large quantities of Red
Cross pins, postcards, and devices. An
equally common abuse lias been on the
cviciB ui yauiuuu BUllgB ailu popular
magazines.
It Is the feeling of Red Cross oft!
cials that the Red Cross emblem
should be regarded much as the ting
Is regarded. Under the law and the
Geneva International Agreement, the
emblem is set apart for the work of relief
and mercy. It should not be used
In any way to detract from that btgb
office. Its use to stimulate the s>le
of magazines, songs, post cards, or rather
articles under the guise of patfhilism,
therefore, should not be regarded
as proper.
Provisions of the law are as follows:
"It shall be unlawful for any person,
corporation, or. association other than
The American National Red Cross and ,
Its duly authorized employes and
agents and tbe Arcy and Navy sanitary

Somethin gNew In
Accident Law
(By Associated Press)
CHARLESTON, W. Va, Sept. 7.?
An accident which recently occurre.1
at Huntington has called tor an opinion
by the state road commission on
a novel point of law.
In the accident, a street car motorman
who had stopped his car and
crossed the street to throw a switch,
was struck by an automobile which
was traveling In the same direction
the car was bound. The commission
ruled that the driver of the automobile
was amenable to the law for his act in
passing the car regardless of the tact
that the law only specifies that automobiles
In such circumstances shall
stop so as to avoid striking passengers
who may be boarding or leaving the
car. Local authorities held the chauffeur
blameless because the man hurt
was not a passenger. The commission,
however, held that this factor did not
alter the driver's liability.

Evening Chat
The use of the term "Sammies" to
describe our troops is almost unknown
In France, according to dispatches
received from the United Stakes
Marines in the oversea expidition
of the"ilrst to light". How the term
came into use is explained in this wise
When the "first to fight" continent
steamed into port the people on the
|wharf shouted "Vivent les amis!"?
| pronounced "Veev lays ahmee!"
;\Vhat this means is "long live the
! (our) friends," hut "les amis"may
I sound a good deal like "les Sammies"
and the newspaper men so interpretated
it. Immediately the folks "hack
home" began calling our troops "Sammies,"
but thp French have yet to acquire
the habit.
Situated in between hills with open
country all about, where fresh air
straight from fragrant green earth
comes untainted, is tho ideal place
for a factory. And in such a location
lies the Owen Bottle Works. A wide
well-kept lawn across the front make
the place especially attractive. A
charming house more like one's home,
contains the ofiices, and we como to
this first. Permission being granted
to visit, we go across a narrow bridge
and directly into the hottest part of
tho factory. The first thing that
meets our eye is a sign which reads:
"There are thousands to tell you it
cannot be done. There are thousands
to prophecy failure. There are thousands
to point to you one by one, the
dangers that wait to assail you. But
Just buckle In with a bit of a grin.
Then take off your coat and go to it.
Just start in to sing as you tackle
the thing that cannot be done and
you'll dot It."
It has certainly been done and we
think with admiration of the master
mind who conceived the Idea of the
twelve monster machines, all in a
row, which for 24 hours unceasing
turn out each machine from 30 to 50
bottles a minute. Methodically, un
tiringly, they turn around and around
being fed at one side with the molten
liquid which is shaped by the giant
monsters into bottles?bottles?bottles?all
kinds, all shapes and all
sites. Each bottle is dropped into an
open receptacle which passes it
through the floor to a waiting platform
filled with grooves?a groove for
each bottle. The platform carries the
bottles, 30 in a row, automatically to
another part of the factory where
awaits men to look them over.
It is interesting to see how quickly
they are tested?all bottles having
defects or flaws being thrown aside.
The men pick up four at a time, clash
