be closely watched. The other men
will be kept in the open air as much
as possible and it is believed there
will be no danger of the disease

their' full quotas of the fourth Liberty
loan raised when work stops tonight.
That is the announcement made by the
committee which has worked so hard
and faithfully to save the city and county
from disgrace. The banks will be open
from 7 to 9 o'clock to help the "eleventh

been divided with certain members tak
ing certain districts, and these commit
teemen will see all of those who have not
subscribed or have taken less than their
quotas. They will have until 9 o'clock
tonight to get their names on the honor
If they fail they will be published next
week as "bond slackers," a term now
bearing almost as much stigma as a
deserter in time of war. The govern

names be made. The telegram follows :

$9,000 more for Liberty bonds, making
a grand total of $44,000 he has taken of
the fourth loan and $12,000 of other
loans, making his total of bonds taken
$56.000. Williamson, whose son Jack
is in France, said: "Jack and I are in
this war to win. We will stay until the
kaiser surrenders unconditionally. The
government can use this $9,000 to buy
buckshot for the shotguns the
Huns are howling about."
John Ratidall, a well-known farmer,,

"Now when Jesus
heard it, he withdrew from thençe in

The occasion of Jesus going to the
desert was the fact that John the
Baptist had been beheaded. This is
not the only time that Jesus went to
the desert or wilderness or some se
cluded spot either alone or with his
disciples. The New Testament record
would lead us to believe that it was
a regular habit with him. And that
