The Potsdam maniac is debit?
ed with both the foregoing items
in his account. The former
looks the more portentous, but
there is a special significance in
the luttor. As a contribution
to war activity lace ranks at
zero. The villagers who made
it will probably be employed in
munition shops at present, and.
if anything, the allied cause
will gain a little thereby. But
only a little. Economically,the
whole incident i- unimportant.
And therein lies its real Im?
portance. I lost ruction is by
this lime an instinct with the
Prussian command, to com
maud, to be practised even
when no military advantage

ly? a 1 m o s t unconsciously.
These wantoll cruellies cause
grief to the owners of the ma.

allied armies.

character, but only a little fur

There will only be two names
on tin- ticket. For Bonetor

So fui as we have heard any
expression from both democrats
und republicans the ticket will
be voted solid without change,
recognizing the meti who have
sbod squarely by the president
in the projection of the war.
The people who love to pay
over $12,00 for their shoes will
have that privileg until after the

better take tin- advantage of
their opportunity.
And now sutlragists are pick

Wilson doubtless offers the sen?
ators his heartfelt condolences.
The destiny of Germany is
either one thing or the other.
She will certainly be in peace
or in p'eces soon.
Tho saying "few die and none

be the favorite occupation, in

To the Big Stone Gap Chapter, Its Branches and Auxiliaries of the American Red Cross:
You are hereby notified that Rev. J. M. Smith of Big Stone Gap, Virginia, has been

of the Executive Committee of the Chapter, the Chairman and Secretary of each Branch or
each Auxilliat y. including Committee in charge of Junior School Organizations, and such oth?
er members as the Chairman may from time to time enlist in the cause, subject to the ap?
proval of the Chapter Chairman. ,
The rules and regulations of the Board of Health prevent any public gatherings on account
of prevalence of influenza at the present time, and our efforts will have to be confined to or?
ganization of sub committees and laving out the work preparatory to inaugurating the drive
as soon as the health restrictions are removed.
The same Cause having prevented <>iir holding meetings and electing officers ol the Chap?
ters, Branches and Auxiliaries at the date fixed, Oct; -3rd, this work will be done in connec?
tion with (lie Christinas Roll Call.
Public meetings will be called is so ?11 as the Han is removed, and in the meantime I urge
Red Cross members and workers to use their utmost endeavor to lay the foundation, not on?
ly for a successful Christmas Roll Call, but a very successful re organization largely increas?
ing our membership.

Seed Corn For
Hlncksmirgs, Vd., ??ct. 20.
(VII farmers interested in plant?
ing good Boed oorii m xt year
will remember the critical situ
ation as to good Bced corn last
Owing to tin- large ucrdgo of
corn that has been frost bitten
:his fall, there will undoubted:
ly be a large amount of soft ami
immattire eorn cribbed with the
Bound grain ibis winter. This
makes it absolutely necessary
that farmers should save out
their host seed corn when shuck
big and store it where it will
dr> out well before freezing
If eorn that is not well dried
out is exposed to freezing tein |
perutures, the germ is damaged
very greatly and if planted will
result in a poor stand.
There are several good meth?
ods of storing seed corn, such
as the seed corn tacks, the wire
and I he twisted siring methods
(Any or all of these methods
will he explained in detail on
nppication to the Agronomist of
the (extension Division).
Tbc main point in curing seed
corn is to arrange the individ?
ual oars in such a way that the
air will have free circulation
about them.
The beet place to select seed
corn is from the standing stalk,
but that chance has gone for
this year, so the next best op?
portunity is at shucking time

save you time and lnhor next
