Cross A solitaire diamond ring, brought from France by Lieutenant Joseph Dobelle, was recently put up at auc tion in St. Paul, Minn., for the bene fit of the Red Cross. There are 17 knitting nachines in stalled in the Minneapolis, Minn., Chapter headquarters and 40 others in operation in other parts of the city. All of these machines have been do noted by organizations or individuals for the use of the Red Cros3. Machine knitting for soldiers and sailors was begun in Minneapolis last October. Until April, sweaters were made exclusively. Since then the sock industry has been developed. For two months, the minimum production was 500 pairs a week, but in June, July and August the quota was 7,000 pairs a month. A skilled knitter produces a pair of socks in 20 minutes. Hand work necessary to finishing them is done in about the same time. The hand finishing is all volunteer work. One man has knitted 50 pairs of socks a week while doing his regular work. The following cablegram from James H. Perkins, American Red Cross com missioner to Europe, was received at national headquarters recently: The situation is much less acute now.

Petain, Commander-in-Chief of the French Armies in France, has writ ten a letter to James H. Perkins, American Red Cross Commissioner of Europe, expressing his sentiments on the occasion of American nldepen dence Day. He says: "Conforming to the decision of the authorities of the American Red Cross you have devoted the sum of 10,000,000 francs to the relief of the needy families of French soldiers. You are about to begin the distribu tion of this fund, and I desire to ex press my very warm gratitude to the American Red Cross and tell you how much its generous intervention will favorably influence the moral situa tion of families in this country and of the troops under my command. "By coming to the aid of those our brave soldiers left behind four years ago, you are banishing many cares which I have often noticed. All the French generals have expressed to me the gratitude of their men and have asked me to transmit to you their warm thanks.

"The American Red Cross, repre senting today more than 25,000,000 citizens of the United States, has un derstood how to play the great role which has been intrusted to it by our allied nations. I have read with in terest accounts of its activities in France. In the interior/ as well as with the army, it has not been indif ferent to need. Orphans, tuberculosis patients, refugees, repatriates, sick, wounded and cripple have all receiv ed its aid. All are grateful and have learned, thanks to the Red Cross, to love the American people, whose bounty is without limit. Thousands of soldiers whose parents, numerous children, and sick or homeless wives you have helped know, too, that along side the glorious American fighters there stands a generous people, al ways seeking to ameliorate the mis fortunes of its friends. "On this Fourth of July, 1918, when we all unite to celebrate the national festival of the United States, I feel myself called upon to convey to you the expression of profound gratitude of the French Armies. I ask you to please transmit to the authorities and all members of the American Red Cross my personal thanks and those of the Armies of France." During the closing day of the Chau tauqua held in Medicine Lake, Mont., recently, the large tent was turned over for several hours to auctioneers who were selling articles for the ben efit of the Red Cross. After the auc tion, women workers served a chicken supper at one of the large hotels in the town. The proceeds realized for the Red Cross from these two sources amounted to $1698. 1 LIBRARY NOTES Don't forget that the library has a copy of Mary Shipman Andrews' Three Things" on which the play The Unbeliever" is founded.

Leave your "want" at the library, by telephone if you wish, and you will be notified when either book is in.

Everyone, whether ailing, sick or well, should, each morning, before breakfast, drink a glass of real not water with a teaspoonful of limestone phosphate In it to wash from too 3tomach, liver, kidneys and bowels ,the previous day's indigestible waste, Bour bile and poisonous toxins thus cleansing, sweetening and purifying the entire alimentary canal before putting more food into the stomach. The action of hot water and limestone phosphate on an empty stomach is wonderfully invigorating. It cleans out all the sour fermentations, gases, waste and acidity and gives one a splendid appetite for breakfast. While you are enjoying your breakfast the water and phosphate is quietly ex tracting a large volume of water from the blood and getting ready for a thorough flushing of all the inside organs. The millions of people who are bothered with constipation, bilious spells, stomach trouble, rheumatism others who have sallow skins, blood disorders and sickly complexions are urged to get a quarter pound of lime stone phosphate from the drug store which will cost very little, but is sufficient to make anyone a pro nounced crank on the subject of internal sanitation.
