Farm Demonstrator for Wise
County
Wo have received from the
Federated Oivio L 6 a g u d
the communication published
bolow. Wo heartily concur in
the movement to employ u com?
petent Farm Demonstrator for
tho county. Indeed wo canuot
enncoivo how the Hoard of Su
porvisoi'8,after experiencing the
bonelit- which lollowed from
Mr. Styles' administration, ever
permitted the county to he
without such valuable service.
Let the Hoard employ a man
at once, it will he the best mon?
ey that can be expended for all
the people:
The Federated Civic League
of Wise County, realizing the
nerioiiR food situation confront
ing Wise county, issue this call
to every progressive citizen in
the county to join in tho big
drive to secure u farm demon
strutor organizer for our conn
ty, und join in a movement that
will insure the greatest ofllciou
cy of every citizen. Every pro
i gressive citizen is called upon
f to write the county supervisors
urging immediate action, and
pledging the Supervisors the
fullest co-operation in this, our
couutry's greatest crisis. The
assurance that next year the
food problem will be more ser?
ious than this year, and it is
highly important that some?
thing lie done to organize our
forces on a war basis, and in?
sure the greatest possible re
suits from the soil in Wise
county.
Mr. R, L. McLemore, Presi?
dent.of tho Wise County Fair
Association, states that it. is ab?
solutely essential that Wise
county have a farm domonstra
lor, one who can organize and
mobilize hor greatest co-opera?
tion. Mr. McLemore also states
that if every progressive citir.cn
in the county would join in
backing Up the Supervisors that
it would insure tho county's
having a farm demonstrator
organizer immediately and gut
well organized for next years
work.
Tho Wiso County Fair Assoc?
iation has agreed io put up lift n
dollars for publicity and agita?
tion purposes to wake up the
progressive citizens to tho ser?
ious footl situation.
The Federated League hopes
that every linn in 'the county
will donate to the publicity und
educational fund.
Every mail woman and child is
vitally interested in the success
of the Liberty Bond sales. Tho
saving of tho lives of thousands
of our soldiers hy tho speedy
eliding of the war is ouo of tho
results hotud for, in which wo
will all rejoice. Tho Germans
are watching closely what we
are doiug. Wo have quickly
mobilized a large army and
cent several hundred thousand
mou to Franco?have over sub
scribed the lirst loan called for,
much to their surprise and dis?
may, and when we largely over
subscribe the largest loan over
called for hy any nation in tho
world wo will complete their d:s
comforlure, which will soon be
followed by their raising
tho white ilng of peace, prob?
ably before our armies become
actively engaged in tho war.
Behind these bonds stand tho
?tuire wealth of the United
States and they uro hotter than
u iiiition.il bunk note. Nearly
evoryouc can subsoribo for the
bonds, as tbo banks of tbo coun?
ty, after the payment of the
first two iiiBtnllmonts will carry
the bondB for you ns long as
you want thorn to do so, pro?
vision having been made to that
effect by all the buuke of tho
County, State and National.
To buy u $r>0 bond will require
you to pay on subscription 2
per cont. or $1.00. After thut
$(J.no, and then you can carry
tho balance as a loan. Hvory
man and woman should sub
scribe to the loan and lake part
in the great movement to pro?
vide for our soldiers and shutter
the German hope that we would
prosecute the war in u half
heartod way. Let us all work,
work incessantly until the loan
is greatly over subscribed.
