A LINCOLN STORY "One day his generals had brought case after case to him, each deserving death and'each sentence he had man pged, by one argument or another, to commute. At length they brought him the final case—a most flagrant one. The boy had been proved a coward in battle he had been con victed of stealing from his comrades he had no relatives dependent upon him. The arguments were all gone over they waited for him to sign But Lincoln turned to thejn: 'I know he deserves it,' he said, 'but I guess I'll put him in my "leg cases." They are the cases that you call by that long name "Cowardice in the face of the nemy," but I call them, for short, my "leg cases." If Almighty God has given a man a cowardly pair of legs, how can he help running away with them?"'

MEMffiRS BIG CHRISTMAS DRIVE NETTED 21,049 MEMBERSHIPS OVER QUOTA ASSIGNED Complete figures on the Christmas membership drive announced from the Northern Division headquarters this morning show that the division exceeded its quota by more than 200, 000 members. State by state the results of the drive show that Minnesota enlisted 314,651 new members as against a quota of 23(5,000 fixed by Washing ton. Old members in Minnesota numbered 115,000. During the'drive the state, outside the cities of Min neapolis, St. Paul and Duluth, muster ed 167,772 new members. The three cities enrolled 146,879, MinneaP°hs raising 71,879, St. Paul 45,000 and Duluth 30,000. In the percentage of Hew, members obtained as compared with the total population Olmsted county led all other counties in the state with 7,200 new members, or 37 7-8 per cent of the county population. Murray county was second in the per centage list with a flat 32 per cent of the population in the new member ship list. Mower, Wrigftt and Wash ington counties also won honors. In Montana, 70,000 new members were obtained during the drive. The quota for the state was fixed at 40,000 members and there were 20,000 mem bers in the state when the drive be gan. No reports have yet been re ceived from Montana as to which county led the procession in that state. North Dakota, with a quot-i of 02, 000 members, raised 83,04S new mem bers. Golden Valley county, in the western part of the state, achieved the highest percentage of new mem bers of any county in the state, its final figures showing that 35 per cent of the county's population had enroll ed with the Red Cross during the Christmas drive. South Dakota just doubled its quota of 50,000 members. In addi tion the state had' 43,000 old mem bers. In Todd county the most re markable record of any county in the division was achieved during the drive. With a population of 20,403 persons the county enrolled a Christ mas membership of 2,132. Another circumstance that makes the Todd county record even more remarkable is the fact that more than 50 per cent of the persons in the county are full blood Sioux Indians. SOLDIER AND SAILOR INSURANCE In a short time a million checks a month will be issued from the Bureau of War-Risk Insurance to the fam ilies of the men constituting Amer ica's fighting force. There had been up to January 18, 1918, 473,116 applications for total insurance of $4,011,391,000. The aver age amount applied for still keeps near the maximum of $10,000. A steady effort is being made to make our fighting forces "100 per cent in sured," and there are many military units in which every member is in sured and in some of them every man insured for the maximum of $10,000. The automatic insurance granted by the law ceases on February 12, but by that time it is hoped that our whole military and naval forces will be "100 per centf insured." with the result that the family or dependents of everyone having a family or any one dependent on him will be pro vided with a monthly allowance, and insurance in case of his death, and the member himself, if disabled will receive a monthly allowance, and if totally disabled, will receive in addi tion rehabilitation and special edu cation and training to fit him for some work. The efforts of the Treasury Depart ment to have every member of the military and naval forces insured under this law can be greatly assist ed by the people at home of the sol- I diers and sailors if they will join in urging them to take out the insur ance offered. "OLD GRAY BONNET." TUNE FOR NEW SONG OF 344TH INFANTRY Adopting regimental marching songs seems to be quite the style at Camp Grant. The song adopted by Chicago's "Melting Pot" regiment, the Three Hundred and Forty-third, and the one chosen by the boys of the Three Hundred and Eleventh Divis ional Trains, have both been heard. Now comes the choice of the boys of the Three Hundred and Forty-fourth Infantry under Colonel Simmons' command, honior men. The words have a swing, and, sung to the tune of "Old Gray Bonnet," it is catchy." The words are as follows: When the oak leafs turning, And the bonfire's burning, And the night steals upon the day, We'll be drill, drill, drilling For the fight, God willing, That will end in freedom's sway. When the wild flower's blooming, There'll be big guns booming, And we'll lend a hand in the play, We will teach Bill Kaiser It's a damn sight wiser To keep out of freedom's way. So cheer up, my girlie, We'll be home bright and early Wearing medals won in the fray, We'll come swing, swing, swinging Up the old road singing, In the dawn of freedom's day. rami *Gii Hill MIKES REPORT GIVES SUMMARY OF WORK DONE DURING THE PAST YEAR IX WILLIAMS COUNTY E.
