A Feathered Army. Ever since tne great war started a feathered army has been lighting day and night, summer and winter, to help the Allies win. Without the help of these feathered soldiers, our lighting men would not have had sufficient lood Our Allies would have oeen facing starvation ami we ourselves would have been little bei er off. The margin between srflicient food for absolute necessities and lamme has been and st 11 is uncomfortably narrow hence the food restrictions with which we have become so familiar. The margin is narrow, hal it is sufficient. Haoe you ever realiz'd that bvl for the biads, the leathered soldiers, that margin might not f arm probably would not exist today? Jt is an indisputable fact. Had a great disaster destroyed all insect eating and vermin destroying birds two years, or even a year ago, we would, today, be facing such a food shortage as, in all probability would have meant the loss of the war. Even as it is, the loss from insects and from such vermin as rats and mice totals a sum so vast as to be almost unbelievable. What it would be without the aid of bird-s m keeping the pests in check fairly staggers the imagination. But it is not only in France that these featnered soldiers are waging a victorious war. Ii is in the United Stales, in Oktibbeha county the same as every wheie. And since we have come to know their worth this fall and winter should see that they receive greater care and protection than they have in any former season. Fulgham-Palmer.

If yon believe lit. reader, go out to-morrow and try to (borrow a thousand on yours; you will find that your character is worth about thirty cents in I lie open market. The next glaring example is found in jour social life. The alarming increase lof divorce is due primarily to the fact that a large percentage of the choices were not based upon character, but were made amid the glittering lights ol the ballroom. Marriage is a sacred In stltutlon, and if if Is to receive divine sanction must be built upon more than i a passing whim or liking. Our choices i should he based upon computability of ! character rather than the kind ol houses we live in and the clothes we wear. The trouble in the past has been that an evening suit, isinglass pumps and a washboard shirt were more necessary as a card of admittance to our sociability and fellowship than character. I,et us learn to choose our friends because of their inner attributes j instead of the outer fixings. The fallacy of our present day social ! life can be summed up in a liitle ad vertisement that recently appeared in our papers. “Clothes make a man.” (They don’t: you might Just as well buy a quart of varnish and call it a piano, Wc need to return again to the type of fellowship shown by Jonathan and David, recognizing all humankind as our brothers, looking beyond the shel lac and varnish to the real hardwood of life. A return to this kind of fellow ship will eradicate forever the strife of capital and labor and will also remove a large percentage- of distress and suf ierlug from the world. Trustee Sale.
