The Rep? artition of relief work in Bel? gium from that in France was determined on by the War Council owing to the difllcul tics of communication and transportation in France. By establishing a now department at Nave, the present seal of the tlulginn Government, the Red Cross program of relief in that part of Belgium still outside the Herman grip, will be well under way before winter begins. In? cluded in the appropriation, also, in money to supplement the alroady over-taxed hospital re Hources of the Belgian Govern? ment. Oct. 12.?To aorvo the Ameri? can troops uttd the hundreds of war hospitals behind t he French tiring line, and to reach the thousands of French refugees, the Red Cross Commission to Franco has established a system of thirteen largo warehouses throughout Franco. Six of those have been located in Paris, which serves as the center of the distribution system. Ap? proximately 16,000 tons of ma? terial are now being distributed monthly from these warehouses by the Red Cross Commission. A large proportion of these sup plies is received directly from U. S.; but, owing to the great shortage of ocean tonnage, large supplies have been pur? chased iu France. The ware? houses in Paris alone have a capacity of :j.5ou,ooo cubic feet and can take care of 00,000 tons of supplies ut a time. These supplies are handled iu true American fashion, and ut one of t h e warehouses, railway freight ears are run into the building for unloading. Ameri? can college, French and Belgian soldiers no longer lit for mili? tary duty are directing the work. Oct. 14.?The Allies must pro? vide living necessities for their soldiers who are captured, be? cause tho Central Powers are not providing prisoners of war with sufficient food to keep them in good health. I'.y ar rangment with Germany and Austria, prisoners are permitted to receive extra rations and clothing from their home gov? ernments. The Red Cross has just shipped 6,000 hags of Hour for Serbians in Austrian prison camps. To follow this ship? ment, consignments of food stuffs aud clothing for Serbians are now being ut>sumtiled by the American Red Cross. The rav? ages of war iu Serbia are said to have been even worse than in Belgium und Roumaniu and many Serbians have been en tiroly depend.-ut upon America for relief.

FOOD ADMINISTRATION Wise County National Pledge Campaign Having been appointed Pub? licity Manager of tiid campaign which opens Sunday, October 28tb, 1917, and (dosen Sntur. flay, November 3ru\ the follow? ing appeal is mude to every man and woman iu Wise cottli t> : You have a part to play iu the great drama nf the war. You are enrolled as a volunteer in the "army behind the army." Your duties consist in so con? ducting your daily affairs thai not one of our boys who have been called upon to surrender home, comfort, ambition, and possibly life itself, shall softer I more than these hardships which must be expected upon the liehi of battle. Millions of our people do not yet realize that they must help win the war by sympathetic self-sacrifice. Our country needs, more than anything else, a national consciousness of re? sponsibility, and in order that every man, woman and child may have an honorable share ini prosecuting a successful war, this call for enrollment in the I conservation army is issued. Our country can only remain a land of plenty during the period of war, if each of us will? ingly and faithfully carries out. in daily practice, economy iu tho use of tood, especially ; wheat, meat and sugar. Wo i are now called on to feed an ! enormous army of American i soldiers abroad, as well as the i armies of our Allies as a means of self protection. Unless each person in the United .States helps in the great work of con? serving our food supply, so thai not only our armies and our l seives shall have food, but also, our Allies in the canst; of civiti-l Izution, we may Buffer hot only I disaster and defeat in the war, but serious food shortage at home. This is the problem to be solved in American homes. It is the desire of the Food Administration to pledge our whole population so far as may be to food conservation. The persons to ho pledged fall rough ly into three clusses: First, the homes, pledges for which shall be signed by the householder. Second, men and women not presiding over the llUOSOltold. Third, venders of food. You are not asked to reduce your footl consumption but you are asked to substitute foods so as to use as small a quantity of the food which we will be com? pelled to send to our boys in the trenches and the allies as you can get along with using other food in their stead. Wheat, meat, sugar and dairy products will have to be sent and you arc asked to cut down consumption of these articles as much as you can. Following is tin; pledge to be signed: "To the Food Administrator: 1 am glad to join you in the service of food conservation for our nation and I hereby accept membership in t h o United States Fooil Administration, pledging myself to carry out the directions and advice of the Food Administrator in my home ?in so far as my circumstances I permit. Signature." ' There are no fees or dues to I be paid. The Food Adminis? tration wishes to havens mem? bers all of those actually hand ling food in the home. Any one may have the home card of instructions, but only those signing pledges are en? titled to Membership Window Card, which will bo delivered on receipt of the signed pledge. Remember that whatever you do is voluntary. You only pledge yourself to economist! in tho use of articles that must be sent abroad.

Stiller remained unconscious throughout t h e night, but was able to return to his homo at Oretou the next morning. It was found that Mr. Dooley was severely in? jured, suffering from concussion of the brain, and for a time it look as though his injures would prove fatal. Sunday at noon he was brought to his home in thu Uup und hin con dition has improved and the physicians nay he will recover. The accident was due to the blowing out of a front tire, which caused the car to sudden? ly swerve and turn complsti ly over, lauding against a barb wire fence.
