The Red Cross Work.
At the theatre on the occasion of
a recent date made hero by a troupe
of Hawallans, Dr. Turner Informs us
that the proceeds, altho the troupe
failed to appear, were donated in
full to the Union City Red Cross
chapter. Quite a large audience was
present in anticipation of a musical
treat, and tho disappointed they re
fused to accept a refund of the ad
mission. The Hawallans, it seems,
were suspected of being German
Wagon and Blacksmith Shop.
Mr. John O'Donnell sold his wagon
and blacksmith shop a few days ago
to T. R. Reynolds, the president of

accounts. He has been one of our
most popular business men and citi
zens, and his retirement from busi
ness here is uiversally .regretted,
Mr. Reynold will no doubt continue
the business with the prospects of
the best success. He will give the
business his personal attention.

The American Red Cross has been
granted a license by the War Trade
Board to "trade with tho enemy."
This is h w It came about: the
privilege of sending letters, food, and
money to American prisoners of war
in Germany - has been granted ex
clusively to the Red Cross by the
German government.
Germany demands a return for
this privilege. She asks the Red
Cross to act as the medium thru
which German fathers and mothers
can send a "word from home" or a
remembrance to sons confined In
American prison camps, and to a
minor extent . to her prisoners In
French and British camps.
This, In a sense, constitutes "trad-.

Will Give Relatives Details of Can-
altiet at the Front
To give relatives of American sol
diers details of casualties at the
front, the American Red Cross has
organized at national headquarters a
Bureau of Communication, of which
William R. Castle, Jr.,- formerly As
sistant Dean of Harvard College and
Editor of the Harvard Graduates'
Magazine, is director. This Bureau
supplements In a personal and hu
manitarian way the reports of the
Statistical Division of the War De
partment which gives to relatives
official notice when a soldier is re
ported killed, wounded or missing.
The anxiety which naturally re
sults from the official report to rela
tives that a soldier has been "wound
ed" or is "missing" will as far as
possible be dispelled by the Bureau
which will advise in detail the na
ture and extent of the wound, and
will gather evidence from comrades
in arms at the hospitals and rest
camps regarding thoso reported
"missing." "
Any information of interest or
consolation to relatives thus obtain
ed will be transmitted to them thru
personal letters, while messages from
the wounded will bo conveyed thru
this same agency.
The Information on which the
Bureau will base its reports is gath
ered thru a central office in Paris,
under the direction of E. Gerry
Chadwlck, of New York, aided by
the Rev. Robert Davis, nt Engle
wood, N. J., and thirty assistants
stationed at the base hospitals and
rest camps to which soldiers are gen
erally returned following important
With the increase of the American
forces and participation in the war,
this number will have to be greatly
Increased. Tho information will for
the most part be forwarded from the
Paris office to this country by mail.
For tho present the Bureau is re
porting on all cases that come to its
attention. However, it is probable
that with tho increase of reports
from the front, information will be
sent only to relatives requesting it,
except in cases of those imprisoned
or reported "missing."
There is a Red Cros3 service in
Great Britain, France, Italy, Ger
many and Austria. In the London
office of the British Red Cross, more
than two hundred women are con
stantly employed in communicating
with relatives of soldiers and their
card Index already covers more than
three million cases reported on.

The Bureau will recolve thru the
International Red Cross office at
Geneva, Switzerland, the list of
American prisoners supplied officially
by the German government. la
cases of imprisonment, the Bureau
reports to relatives, after which the
case is referred to the Rod Cross Bu

which Franklin Abbott is director.
The American Red Cross Commit
tee in Berne sends each American
prisoner, every two Weeks, throe ten
pound food packages. These sub
sistctit stores are provided by the
Government and tho American Red
Cross. A sufficient quantity of sup
plies is now on the way to Switzer
land to care for 10,000 American
prisoners for a period of six months.
This Bureau is also the sole agency
licensed by the War Trade Board to
transmit money to American and
allied prisoners in Germany.
Buy at Home.
Our Government has been, and is
now, advocating the buy-at-home
plan, and evory county and State to
raise all they eat and save a lot to
send our soldiers at the front and to
our allies..
That's our policy. We believe
that, and are practicing the thing,
too. We want you to know that we
are now ready to supply our mer
chant customers with fresh and salt
ed meats, also pure country made
lard, fresh sausage and souse.
After March 20 we will have
