•eedingly sorry to learn of th s
decia'on of Mr. Garland s as we
feel that it will be a detriment to
the farmer, whose local market
will be almost destroyed for this
part of his produce. When M
Garland took over the Market j
some two years ago, the farmer]
found it exceedingly dimcult to
dispose of the then small produc
tion ef pork and Mr. Garland,
seeing the need and baneuts ol a
packing establishment, entered
iito that branch of the but. her
business. The establishment of
a packiug plant hare cr a eJ a
greater demand for pork at high
!y advanced prices and the farm
ers, always ready to supply a
market, at once proceeded to
raise more pork- The establish
ment of tlio packiug plant
was the direct means ef treat in
a larger market and putting more
money into circulation- A pork
now days brings thp raisvr a
round $00.00 a head and ne i- -s
of this market will be keenly felt
by the producers. |

The need of prompt relief for the
inhabitants of towns along the coast
of the White Sea and on the Kola
peninsula, many of flffiom were facing
starvation, was found to be Impera
tive. Scurvy had broken out among
the people at these places, adding to
the general distress.
The towns to which the relief ex
pendition was sent are virtually iso
lated from the outside world because
.of the treacherous coast line, shifting
sand bars and uncharted waters. An
exceptionally early frost, even for that
part of the world, ruined the harvests,
which were expected to improve con

Following a tour of South England,
Secretary of War Baker made this
comment on the work done by the

Following his return from France, j a
Secretary Baker wrote this note to ; a
the American Red Cress in London: 1 a
"I left London so shortly after my i
drive to Winchester that I had no
early opportunity to thank you for
the courtesy of the touring car which
you placed at my disposal for the trip.
Oil this trip to Europe I have received
fresh and noteworthy evidence of the
'astonishing efficiency of the American
■Red Cross operations in France and
.England. 1 have been delighted to see
bow much the American Red Cross
has done to weld hearts of the allied
•people together."
Replacing the Orchards.
The American Red Cross has given
$10,000 to assist in the replanting of
trees in the orchards laid hare by the
Ormans. With this sum 40.000 fruit
trees will be replaced in the devas
tated orchards of Belgium and north
ern France.
American soldiers In camps and hos
pitals In Great Britain are now able to
keep in touch with affairs at home
through the medium of a daily bulletin
service which has been established by
tiie American Rod Cross.
Army officers say the service fills a
long-felt want, providing the men with
t- mrtlng and home uews they cannot
thaï in the English newspapers,
j The arrival of the bulletin is now
one of the big daily events. In this
connection a Red Cross worker iu
England sends the following message
to National Headquarters iu Wash
« A f ter tHiutog with tfcs boys «bout

The Red Cross* Ready for Peace
T HE following message ha3 been telegraphed by the
War Council of the American Red Cross to each one
of the 3,857 chapters:
"On February 10th, last year, fiêftrlÿ six weeks be
fore the United States declared war, National Red Cross
Headquarters advised its chapters to prepare for war.
That which has followed in the record of the Red Cross
in helping to win this war and to relieve the suffering
growing out of it, constitutes something of which every
American citizen has a right to be proud. Every Ameri
can Red Cross worker must feel a sense of gratitude in
having had a share in it all.
"The moment is now come to prepare for peace.
Until peace is really here and our soldiers home there
can be no relaxation in any Red Cross effort incident to
active hostilities.
"But even with peace, let no one suppose that the
work of the Red Cross is finished. Millions of American
boys are still under arms. Thousands of them are sick
and wounded. Owing to the shortage in »hipping, it may
take a year or more to bring our boys home from France.
But whatever tho time, our protecting arms must be about
them and their families over the whole period which
must elapse before the normal life of peace can be re
"Our soldiers and sailors are enlisted until the Com
mander-in-Chief tells them there Î3 no more work for
them to do in the war. Let every Red Cross member and
worker—and this means both men and women—show
our returning soldiers and sailors that to care for their
health, welfare and happiness we are enlisted for no less
period than they are.
"The cessation of war will reveal a picture of misery
such as the world has never seen before, especially in
the many countries which cannot help themselves. The
American people will expect the Red Cross to continue
to act as their- agent in repairing broken spirits and
broken bodies. Peace terms and peace conditions will
determine Ilow we rqay best minister to the vast stricken
areas which have been harrowed by war, and for this
great act cf mercy th£ heart and spirit of the Amerioan
people must continue to be mobilized through the Amer
ican Red Cross.
"G:} behalf cf the War Council, we accordingly ask
each member of our splendid body of workers through
out the land to bear in mind the solemn obligation which
rests upon each one to 'carry on.' We cannot abate one
instant in our efforts or in our spirits. There will be
abundance of work to do, and specific advices will be
given, but even at the moment of peace let no Red Cross
worker falter.
"Our spirits must now call us to show that not the
roar of cannon or the blood of our own alone directs our
activities, but that a great people will continue to respond
greatly and freely to its obligations and opportunity to
