A great drive to Indue every school chrtd In America to buy at least one 25-cent Thrift Stamp is now being launched for the month of January war savings campaign. In opening th campaign, the first of December, Secretary of th Treas ury McAdoo appealed to "Young Amer ica," asking their co-opsratlon In the Thrift Stamp and War Savings Stamp and Certificate campaign, by which It la planned to rats 12,000,000.000 with in the next year. Becretsry McAdoi appeal to tho boys and girls to earn this money and make personal sacri fice by saving their spending money and earning money by beating carpet, waning floors, sifting sihes, helping parrnts, clcsnlng celtnrs, washing win dows, cleaning sliver, cutting worn), vnrnlshlng chairs, tearing down old chicken coop and cutting up for fire wood, caring for nolghbor'i baby, net' tng n messenger for drug stores, sell Inn msgszlnes, workln In stores Sat urdars and waiting on table. Secretary McAdoo's message to "Voung America" salds "Nations have their childhood and their days of hard lessons Just as chil dren do. One hundred nnd forty year aito, when the first American army msrchtd to battle, our nation was younger among nations thsn ynij are among your fathers, your mother and their friends. "Our army had drummer boy In thosi days, real boy of 10 and 12, who marched as bravely and as proudly into cannon flro ns theli great chief, Oen.

"The nation needs that sort of boy and girls today. Not to beat our drums, nor to load our muskets, but to start a great work which must be done. It Is the part of boya and girls today to give an exumple of self denial and sacrifices to teach fathers and mothers, to teach the grown peoplo of the nation that we still Lave In every young heart the spirit of 'ft, when boys led our soldiers Into battle and girls fought beside their fathers at. the cabin wall. The lesson Is thrifty sav ing, to the point of sacrifice self- denial of everything unnecessary. "If every boy and girl says at home tonight, 'I will fight In thlswsr; I will save every penny and loan It to my government to help save the lives of the big brothers of America; I will try to teach every American I see to do the same.' then 20,000,000 homes, the homes of all America, will be filled with the splr i of '76, the spirit of the drummer-boys, of the brave girls of those days. x "America will win the war again; as It always has won, through the splen did strength, courage and aaerlfie la the- hearts of youth, that today will teach the nation the lessons of saving an4 serving which It must and wlU learn, uraugn ine message wnicb lta school children will carry horns.

It was a portrait nt tils father, Colonel Slmpklns. who lind four times been promoted for valor during the Civil Unr and had tiled bravely on the field of action, sir. Slmpklns' throat ached now for two reason: First, he reverenced and adored the 'r.emorjr of his father; secondly, his nge and h.s eyes snd hi game leg wouldn't let him ISO to irtr himself. And as he observed the martial bearing and unrninriromta Ing gate of Colonel Slmpklns he saw, In Imagination, the khaki lm! lit is of the new generation marching forth and crossing three thousand miles of sea to fight, maybe die. for liberty. Mr. Slmpklns peered arndnd to make sure that neither Hess nor John (who were at the tensing ages of sixteen and seventeen) were whero they could see him, then he straightened nnd threw his right arm up for u salute. Hut his gouty shoulder twinged, and he groaned. He couldn't even s.ilute. "Dnuint" snld Mr. Slmpklns, and with his other lintid fiercely twirled his white inustnehlos.

"He only paya $20," co- mcnted Mr. Slmpklns, not quite so angrily this tlmo; and then 'a thought struck him and he sat up rigidly In his chair. Judge Wllloughby'a son had been drowned on th Tuaeanla when It waa submarined 'with the loss of two hun dred soldiers. . "Judge Wllloughby gave hi son to America," muttered Mr. Slmpklns. He leaned forward suddenly and put his face In his hands. For a long time Mr. Slmpklns aai very still In that position. There was no sound In the library except the ticking of the. tall clock and an occa sions! trill o? laughter from the chil dren skylarking upstairs. .The square of light on the carpet gradually with drew Itself through the window, and first twilight and then darkness ssttled In about the quiet, white haired, some times Irascible old man.
