Free France By October?
Expulsion of the Hun from
France in October, ssy in six weeks
from now, is cautiously predicted.
It shows great confidence ia the
possibilities of the near future, bin
coi as much as a prediction six
weeks ago that the Allies by this
time would have crossed the Hinden
burg line mid would have destroyed
60 much of i he enemy forces, th--ch'.et
objective of till the war,
And with Fiance uiishackled in
October, it is to much to hope that,
given favorable fall weather, we will
have the Hun out of the greater
patt of Belgium by Christmas, when
we cocsider the great number of
men Marshal Foch has not yet
utilized in the drive?"
The Allies huve won limited suit
ceses in the past, when they hardly
deserved to win. Often they have
losf when they deserved to win, or
have attained only partial victories,
when they deserved to win more de
cisively. But thej tre winning now
because they deserve to win and are
winning on a tremendous scale be
cause they deserve that, likewise.
Onf mystery about which the woild
will be very curious, until explana
tions come in is how they manage to
fet their heavy guns forward at
such speed, often keeping up with
infantry advancing a mile an hour
end moving forward over new and
broktn ground more rapidly the
Get man guns can be moved back to
the rear over long-occupied ground.
This was a problem that entered
into many bit ter allied disappoint
me nis in the past, but evidently it
tias been solved
We btve reached the stage of
swift, decisive, terrific movements
in the war. With the splendid in
crease in Allied efficiency, on the
one band, and the clockwork me
chanism of German war making
el.cueted e.r.d disarranged, on the
other almost anything is possible.

Any young man of 18 or nearly
18 years of age. who has completed
a High scl ool course and who fails
to tiike advantage 'jf the offer of the
government made thru the State
University and a number of colleges
of tlje state, is very foolish. The
government offers to pay board,
lodging, tuition and provide uni
form and to give the boy $30 per
month while he attends such school
or coll-gp provide he takes the
military course provided by the U.
S government. As these youths
are in the draft any how and will
likelj be called to service nex' sum
mer if the war-continues, they are
very foolish not to accept this

A pioneer in Pike County, 81 years
old, boasts that he never took a
drink of whiskey, never used tobacco
never pleyed cards, never played
checkers, never played dominoes,
never was slaved or had his hair
cut by a baiber, and never had a
tooth pulled by a dentist or doctor
It is a remarkable record, partic
ularly for Pike County, where the
folks generally pride themselves
mostly on what they do rather than
on what they don't.

Wearing Old Clothes.
We shall have much greater need
to economize in food and in fuel
this coming winter than last win
ter. Everywhere in the world
Iheie is a great scarcity of wool and
while for the sake of health we
should dress comfortably in winter,
it should be made disgraceful to
dress extravagantly. There will be
nothing so vulgar ar.d so far from
good form as to pay undue atten
tion to alleged "fashions" as regards
costume. In every other country
on earth, all, people, whether rich
or poor, are thankful if they pos
sess a supply of old clothes, and
they regard it as patriotic to bring
to light discarded things and leave
the entire new wool crop for army
use. This is no minor affr ir, but a
deedlv serious one. Last year hun
dreds of our boys died in the camps
because cold wedt her overtook them
belore the Quartermaster's Depart
ment had got their winter uniforms
end overcoats ready. Civilians will
have to buy many articles of dress;
but it will help all trades, including
the clothing tude itseif, if eveiy
man, womuin and child gets as
much wear as possible out of gar
ments already in hand.
