" I ^hat People Say ? I and Some Side Remarks ' ! The farmers are doing their share to win the war. according to J. M. Downs, president of the Marion County Farm Bureau, whose advices from i the seven magisterial districts indicate that there is more planting than last spring in spite of the shortage of farm labor. He says: "One of the groat problems of this spring he.: been to obtain good seed. Ka said. "This was more particularly true in regard to corn. Tl-3 farmers have secured gcod seed without regard to trouble or expense. Cold, wet ! weather is the only thing to be j feared yet this spring. If weather conditions are favorable throughout t'1" - car the Marion county f c.ight to harvest sc..or:! I' -t' r; crops. "The indie. V: ;. u to a good apple r rcy in ul3 section. Most of the eacneo in thi ssection have been killed." ' Tbs farmers may not all wear buttons." he cqncluded, "but vou can mark it down that. most of them have Liberty Bonds and will contribute to the Red Cross. The farmers are patriotic alright although this thing of wearing buttons has not yet been adopted by tillers of the soil who are slo wto adopt fashions of outward show." Ira L. Smith is of a very serious turn of mind but occasionally he tests. He may have been jesting at Hickman's Run the other night when in his address he claimed by way of emphasiing how his family stood regarding the Red Cross: "My wife has given my last pair of socks to the Red Cross and they are on their way 'over there.'" ?-? ? Some New Names of U. S, Marines PARIS, May II.?U. S. Marines in France are rapidly acquiring new sobriquets. The Germans, terrorized by their maniacal fighting, have dubbed these Americans, "Devil Dogs." But the French who have come in contact with the Marines refer to them as "the millionaire soldiers,' due to the fact that Marines are constantly dividing their pay with the French women and children who need help. In'many instances Marines have been known to give up their entire month's , pay to purchase food for destitute j French families. And the Marines are proud of both titles.
