The following is an extract from
the appeal sent out by the American
Red Cross:
"It is useless to lend a garment
which is not made of the strongest
and most durable materials, as the
clothes are subjected to the hard
est kind of use. But this does not
mean that all garments must be in
perfect repair. There are upwards
of a hundred thousand women in
Belgium and Northern France who
will do anything for a little work,
and who were mobilized and train
ed into a marvelously efficient or
ganisation for the making of new
clothing-while there were still raw
materials-or the repairing, ripping
up and remaking of old clothing."
"These women are happiest when
at work. having less time to dwell
upon their misery, and they look
forward with dread to the day when
their material is exhausted, they
must lay down their work and await
their turn to receive the next sup
We feel sure that this appeal will
meet with ready response from the
people of our district, who have al
ways lead in all great movements
for a worthy coase.

Notice that a vigorous campaign
would be instituted immediately to
force the tearing down of all cis

of Monday sustaining the order is
sued in 1916 by the board requiring
the removal of all cisterns and water
The notice reads:
"This is a very important matter
at this time, as the warm weather is

"We have already filed more than
2000 affifdavits in the First and Sec

sume that an of these cases will
now go to trial at an early date."
It is regarded as quite certain
there will be a rush to tear down
cisterns this week. The Supreme
Court decision leaves the property
owner who refuses to tear down his
cistern subject to a heavy fine as
well as the loss of the cistern.
