The certifi cate is not part of the contract of insurance; it is merely evidence that this week by O. K. Holladay, chair man. The campaign will be launch ed officially Novell and continue to Not. 18, inclusive. The purpose is to raise by subscription in the Unit ed States $170,500,000 with which the war welfare work of seven pow1 erful organizations, embracing every creed and denomination, will main tain their activities for the care and comort of American fighting men. Mr. Holladay is chairman of the Putnam county executive committee. Other men on the commit lee are: W. W. Jared, Buffalo Valley; J. E. Oliver, Baxter; R. N. Browder, Mon terey; J. T. Moore, Algood; J. N. Cox, Cooke ville; C. D. Daniel, Cooke ville. District chairmen are: " 1st, Bob Lee Maddux, Cookevflle; 2d, Millard .

In the pulpits of all churches next Sunday the preachers are asked to deliver a sermon or talk explaining the activities of the seven war wel fore organizations and what they Save done to cheer and comfort the American sailor, soldiers and ma rines in the world war. They include the Young Men's Crhistian Associa tion, the Young Women's Christian Association, the National Catholic War Council (Knights of Columbus), the War Camp Community Service, the American Library Association, the Jewish Welfare Board, and the Salvation Army. This wonderful or ganization was welded by the Presi dent of the United States and is working hand in hand in a big, broad conception of real duty, real service to the-Americans enlisted in our ar mies and navies and air squadrons. - As in the case of the fourth liber ty loan campaign, so Is this united war work campaign in the matter of immense importance. If peace should come tomorrow, there wquld be an even greater need that the work now In progress by these seven organiza tions be maintained. It will require from one to two years,, even after peace is agreed upon, before Ameri can troops can be fully withdrawn Tom Europe. " Then will come the vast work of rehabilitating and re constructing war torn France. The Putnam county organization down to the civil district, town and neighborhood is to be completed at a convention next week at which a large and representative attendance 1a anticipated. The organization will be carried Into every community n Putnam, with well laid plans for put ting this county over the top. The bureau of war risk insurance of the treasury department is mnil ing insurance certificates as rapidly as possible. To date more than two and half million certificates have been sent forward and the daily out put Is constantly increasing. The bureau of war risk insurance now has on its books more than thirty-five billion dollars of insurance, and is receiving approximately one billion dollars of new insurance ev ery week. It is sot" necessary to write to Washington for your certificate. It will come In due course. You do not need the certificate to prove that you have taken out the insurance or ;o prove that you are the beneficiary named by a soldier or a sailor. ... Every officer and man in the mili tary and naval service of the nation has the privilege and the opportunity of buying up to $10,000 of Uncle Sam's insurance'. This insurance is protection for him and for those that are dear to him both for the pres ent and for the future. If you are hte relative of a man with the colors, it is your duty to see to it that he avail3 himself of this government protection, and that when he has obtained it, he holds on to it. Don't drop Uncle Sam's insurance THE BONOS WERE BOUGHT The six billion dollar bond issue was bought by the American people, according to reports. Nearly one half was taken during the last three Idys. Putnam county citizens bought about 1185,000 worth or 120,000 more than their allotment, for which much credit is due Col. S. B. Anderson as chairman and the splendid assistance given him by zone aind district work ers. Col. Anderson asks the Herald to thank everybody for the fine show ing made in the county. He has re ceived the following telegram: Atlanta, Ga., Oct. 22, 1918. Anderson, Cookeville, Tenn.: Thank and congratulate " you and each member of your committee and your subscribers for their generous response to the country's call. Each, state in the district has gone over. WARDLAW Chairman. LADIES' AID SOCIETY Those members who attended the September meeting of the Ladies' Aid Society were splendidly enter tained at the beautiful country home of Mrs. S. B. Anderson. The next meeting which will be an important one, will be held at the home of Mrs C. S. Jenkins next Monday afternoon at 3 o clock, Mrs. James Shirley be ing hostess. All members are urged tp be nresent. . WAR RISK INSURANCE S,ome soldiers and sailors are drop ping their war risk insurance be cause the relatives they named a3 beneficiaries have . failed to receive Insurance certificates from Washing ton. - Such action is entirely unwarrant ed and detrimental to the best inter ests of the fighting men and their loved ones. Because of delay in receiving in surance certificates, many soldiers believe that they, are paying for in surance protection which they are not receiving. This is incorrect. Government insurance is effective regardless of the receipt of the in- 1 Why you should use Cardui, the woman's tonic, for your troubles, have been shown in thousands of letters from actual users of this medi cine, who speak from Sersonal experience.

Many days have passed since I re quested any space in the columns of your paper. I have -wondered many times since 1 saw many of the Ten nessee friends. We (us children) are scattered a it were to the 'four winds of the earth. Only two of U3 together, Orpha and myself live here in Boswell, and the others are one in a place. Susie and her family live at Commerce, Texas. They were up to see -us a short time back. Orpha has one boy in training camp at Ft Sill, Okla. He has been there only a short time. First he went to Ft Sam Houston, Texas; later on was sent to Camp Bowie, Ft. Worth, and from there to Ft. Sill. His name is Newell L. Phy. The Influenza is certainly raging over thi3 country and many people are dying. Some of them only live a very few hours after 'tis known they have the disease. This is a timbered country and more like where I roamed the wood lands in Tennessee while growing up to manhood. In my Imagination can see the old log church houses as plain as when I used to visit them every Sunday. Jeff Greenwood and family live here. He is -a very prominent- farm' er in this country and has a fine farm of 200 acresNof Dlack land. I guess war is all the talk back there, for everywhere I go that is the whole, of the conversation. Even the traveling men hardly have time to sell their good3 for talking war, and many of the ones who were trav eling here 'Selling goods of various kinds are today traveling with their gun3 at the request of a different commander.

BROWN PASSES AWAY On Oct. 12, 1918, the Lord saw fit in his goodness and wisdom to call Elder J. B.Brown of Mannsville, Ok- lahoma, to come where the dead in Christ shall live throughout the ceaseless ages " of a never ending eternity, where God shall wipe away all tears and where heartaches are unknown, where troubles and tribu lations never come, where we say no' more goodbyes. , !" Bro. Brown was born at Blooming ton, Putnam 'Co., Tenn., Feb. 10, 1857. Was married to Vernella E. Jackson of Clenny, Jackson Co., on Nov. 30, 1882. To this union has been born ten children, eight of whom yet survive and were present upon this occasion. Six ot this num ber are fatihful children of our Lord and Savior Jesus Chri3t. ' j Bro. Brown on Dec. 25, 1888, be came a member of the Church of (Christ under the peacrntng of Elder Hiram Pharris at Antioch on Flynn's Creek. Besides being a, faithful Christian since his obedience to tne gospel of Jesus Christ, which is tne power of God to save those who be lieve, he had for about twenty year been a faithful preacher of the Bible. - Fourteen years ago he moved from" Bloomington to Tyler, then In Indian Territory, now Oklahoma, where he has lived for several years and has a vast-acquaintance nd a host of strong friends. Elder Hollinsworth, of Mannsville, who was among the flrst of . Bro. Brown's acquaintances when h came west, was very atten tive with many others during the ill ness and then spoke words of conso lation at the cemetery on the after noon of the 13ih inst. when and where we laid Bro. Brown to rest to await the coming of our Savior to reveive his own. In hope of a better world than this, M. S. JAQUESS.
