RUB-MY TISM --- Antiseptic Relieves Rheumatism, Sprains, Neuralgia, etc. I Sffiff 5 ************************* The Long Arm of Mercy By DR. FRANK CRANE The Red Cross is the Long Arm of Mercy. It is the Kindness of Mankind—organized. In Man is an Angel and a Devil, a Dr. Jekyll and Mr Hyde. The Red Cross is the Good, aroused, energized tc thwart the Bud. It is the best antidote we know to the bane of war. There are other Charities, more or less helpful. The Red Cross is the mightiest of all Charities, the Love and Pity of all men made supremely efficient. If, as Emerson said, "sensible men and conscientious men all over the world are of one religion," this is the ex pression ofthat religion. The Red Cross is Humanity united in Service. It asks no man's opinion; only his need. Black or White, Friend or Foe, to the Red Cross there is no difference; it only asks: " Who is Suffering?" And to him it goes. The Red Cross is so Efficient that Governments recog nize it; so Pure in its purpose that whdever wishes well his fellow men, desires to help it; so Clean in its administration that the most suspicious can find no fault in it. The Red Cross not only seeks to alleviate the cruelties of War; it is the expression of those human sentiments that some day will put an end to War. It is the impulse of Love, striving tö overcome tKe im pulse of Hate. It is Mercy's co-operation struggling against War's ri valries. It is the one Society in which every Man, Woman and Child should be enrolled; for it knows no sects, no preju dices, no protesting opinion; the human"being does not live ^hat does not feel that the starving should be fed, the sick ftnded and the wounded healed. Majestic and divine is this Long Arm of Mercy; it finds t*e fallen on the battlefield, it brings the nurse and the physician to the victim in the hospital; it leads the weeping orphan to a home; it feeds the starving, cares for the pest switt^VM^oU others abandon, and pours the oil of Help and bitter wounds of the World. Where avmcano has wrought desolation in Japan, or a Flood in China, or a Hurricane in Cuba, or a Famine in Ind t. or a P ague in Italy, or ravaging Armies in Poland, Serna or Belgium, there flies the Red Cross, the Angel of God whom tha fury of men cannot banish from the Earth; and to the Ends of the Earth, over all the ways of the Seven Seas, wherever is Human Misery, there is extended, to bless and to heal, its Long Arm of Mercy. The Crescent Drug Company is if* the Red Cross work, too. The Methodist ladies will give a bazaar Wednesday 22nd in ti e J. S. Singley store. Dinner and supper will be served at nominal snm.

ABOUT RHEUMATISM Rheumatism causes more pain and suffering than any other dis ease, for the reason that it is the most common of all ills, and it is certainly gratifying to sufferers to know that there is a remedy that will afford relief, and make rest and sleep possible. It is call ed Chamberlain's Liniment. j ! e AN ATROCIOUS CRIME Last Friday in the McNan quarters west of mili no. 2, F Garcia, a mexican employed on the plant, brutally murdered 1 is wife. Some of the workmen saw them tussling in the yard and on the run toward the mill but j thought they were playing; but ! when some of them got nearer they saw a most gruesom ? sight in the stabbed and mutilated wo man. When Garcia and Ills wife reached the lumber run he threw her down and jut her thront from eaa to e.ir; before that be had stabbed her in the arms; sho uiders and other parts of the body. The.motive for the. crime is va riously stated: by some, that Garcia said he was going to war and he did not want any other man to have libr as he loved her so well: by others it is alleged that she was unfaithful. What ever the motive the murder was most brutal. After slaying bis wife Garcia came to Clenmora and surrender ed to mayor A G. Pi high 1 and he was taken to Alexandria and pi aced in jail that night. As the jury is in session again this week, his case, no doubt will receive immediate attention at the hands of the authorities and he will receive such punishment as his foul murder merits. STATE ASSEMBLY MEETS The general assembly of Louis iana convened Monday the 13th inst. This session is of great in terest to the stateas important legislation under war conditions will be considered, and as we hope, with such thoroughness that we will, at least, be found on the side of the forces that uplift and press forward. Our government through its proper spokesmens has asked the state to pass such laws as will protect our soldiers in the camps in our bounds and thus addtotheir health and efficiency. Our state has been most liber al in considering the needs of our country and in responding to the same; we look for our lead ers in the assembly to maintain this high regard for the nation al interest over the interest of the few or local and 'passing things of the state. W r o trust that thèy will not dissapoint us. The reason our honor flag on the third Liberty Loan drive has not been awarded is bEeause we doubled our quota and the star which goes with the flag for dou bling quota has not arrived. We are assured that we will have the flag with the star in a few days. DO YOU ENJOY LIFE? A man in good physical condi tion is almost certain to enjoy life while the bilious and dysqeptic are despondent, do not enjoy their meals and feel miserable a good share of the time. This ill feeling is nearly always unneces sary. A few doses of Chamber lain's Tablets to tone up the stom ach, improve the digestion and regulate the bowels is all that is needed. Try it. RED CROSS MEETING Last Sunday afternoon, pur suant to a call by the chairman the Glenmora Branch, A. R. C., met at the Methodist church. The attendance was gbod, and the interest encouraging. We have collected from all sources over #500 and spent more than §200 which leaves us a bal ance of something like $300 with which to work. Plans were made for future work and we are sure we will meet our part of the #30,000 as signed to Rapides parish. We feel proud of our work and feel sure that we will grow in mind and service as we better un der stand the work. a to T illion Dollars Busiest Budget in Ail the World Is a Red Cross War Fund—Every Dollar Spent Alleviates Misery. List summer the public subscribed a hundred million dollars to the Red Cross. At the latest statement over! eighty-five millions of it had beeu ap proprlated. Where has it gone? you ask. For! runny months the world libs boen! spending over a hundred million dol lars a day for the destruction of life, j liinh and means of subsistence. Call j up what you hove read about the war's j devastation. The American Red Cross' enormous Job Is to do whatever it can to alleviate that—not after the war, not after governments have deliber-i ated and resolved; but right now, at! the minute, on the spot. It's amazing that It has done so much with 60 little money. Last autumn the Italian army fell| back precipitately. On your war map that inoairt rubbing out one line and drawing another half an Inch further south. Over there In Italy It meant thousands of poor families fleeing from their homes. Major Murphy, Red Cross Commissioner in Europe, rushed to the scene and wired: "Indescribably | pathetic conditions exist, involving separation of mothers and children, ! cold, hunger, disease, death." In No vember and December the American; Red Cross appropriated three million dollars for relief there—a large sum, j yet small in comparison with the need.; Condensed Milk for Children. j Soldiers are only a part of the Red Cross' work—probably the pfnaiier part. Every Instant, somewhere in the vast flood of destruction, a hand ranches up !n appeal. It i3 pretty apt: (o be a child's hand or a woman's. When the Red Cross commission reached Petrograd it asked the gov ernment, "What is the most urgent This Red Cross Statementspace is provided for by The Glenmora Drug Company and A, G Pringle's Feed Store. THAT 22 RIFLE Not a great while ago one of our neighbors lost a good brood sow. She bid not fall dead but failed to eat andstarved to death: the reason of it was that she had been shot through the neck with a 22 rifle ball. Last Sunday another one of our neighbors lost a good cow which had been shot with a 22 rifle bul let. Now we do not know who own these rifles, but we do know that such malicious use of them is un lawful and destructive and if it can be proven who is thus guilty, they should be taught the better use of fire arms and to respect the rights of other peoples prop erty. W r e feel that any one that would shoot an unoffending hog or cow would not mind trying his gun from ambush on a man. We trust these offenders will desist from any more crimes of the kink men tioned above. The C. A. Carruth Motor Com pany has found it neeessary to enlarge their mechanical depart ment to accommodate thei r grow ing trade and has built an addi tion thereto of 25 feet. Hon. J. W.

The government replied : "We j must get condensed milk for the little children here." The commission got the milk. At one spot in France farm; work was stopped by lack of horses. I That meant more hunger. The Red Cross got in a big tractor and set it ! to plowing for the community. There are a million needs. Cold, 1 wet and the deadly physical strain of the trenches undermine men's consti-j tut ions. A frightful scourge of tuber-j culosis has developed In France. The; Red Cross has built sanatoria, pro tided over a thousand beds and nurses. J Thirty Millions for France. I have here a big sheaf of sheets filled with figures. One item is thirteen million and odd dollars—the amount which, up to that time, l.ad gone to the local chapters of the Red Cross in the United States for local relief. Twenty five per cent of the money subscribed through the chapters eventually goes that way. Over thirty millions have been ap propriated for work in France. Here is a million and n quarter—in round; numbers—for military hospitals and dispensaries; over a million and a half for canteen service, where French and American soldiers, relieved from the' trenches, can get good food, a cot, a j bath, and have their clothes disinfected ; —and so go on for their brief holiday | clean, rested, nourished. There are! over three millions for hospital supply! service: half a million for rest sta tions for American troops. Aid of refugees—eleven thousand ; families—accounts for nearly three[ million dollars; care and prevention of tuberculosis takes over two millions; care of helpless children over a mil lion ; relief work in six devastated dis CLASS ENTERTAINED On Friday evening, the 10th inst, Mr. and Mrs. H. Meyer cn the Junior and Senior classes of the Glenmora High School. The classes and their friends were present in full force and there was not a dull moment the en tire evening. % The host spared no pains for this social affair as was eviden ced by the thorough preparation made for the pleasure of our young people. Many games were played and Earl Calhoon won the booby prize while Clyde Phillips won the first. At the close of the games, re freshments of cake, icc cream and other sweets, were served in the most gracious manner. The whole evening was delight fully enjoyed by every one pres ent, and the classes shall remem ber the kindness of Mr. and Mrs. Meyer through the years to come with a teuder memory for their courtesy on that even ing. ! i For a Sprained Anklo As soon as possible after the injury is received get a bottle of Chamberlain's Liniment and fol low the plain printed directions which accompany the bottle.

These are ail large items; but tha Red < 'ross is grappling with human misery on an unparalleled scale—a world of it. The Item for relief of tho blind amounts to four hundred thou sand dollars. The dispensary service sends supplies to more than thirty-four hundred hospitals. The Red Cross re ceives and distributes more than tw<* hundred tons of supplies daily at ParlB. For this distribution and its other work it requires a big transportation s< i \ h e of motors and trucks. Thii transportation service tins cost a miR lion and a half, and Its operating tip ponses run to a million dollars. Every dollar it spends means miser alleviated.
