Very few people realize that probably one-half of the doctors will be tal.en to the war during the next year and that the teaching of methods that will prevent disease is a matter th.it is a timely one. With the doctors i,one it will be more important than ever that diseases be prevented. Prof. W. P. Coker, who is a well* known lecturer, was the ohicial deleg ,.c to the Health Institute in Colu.v.b: i lecently and he will carry to the people at these meetings the i message that' he has been taught by leading experts. Th Food Conservation and Preservation port of this campaign will be in charge of Major \V. J. Tiller and Misses Stella Mims and Rosa ' II Poguos, the Home Demonstration Agents. Practical demonstrations in c inning and preserving will be given by these experts. Major Tiller will discuss seed wheat and other phases of farm work, including; the shortage of labor the next year. Many more will be taken for the army nnd yet the farms must be run?the remedy will be more intensive cultivation. In connection with the Food and Health campaign a patriotic address will be delivered at each of these meetings by a representative of the County Council of Defense. The people of their respective communities are urged to attend these meetings. Basket dinners will be served, but the ladies are requsted to prepare no , sweets. The meetings will open each day at 11 o'clock in the morning and there will be both morning and afternoon sessions. The schedule is as follows: Macedonia, Tuesday, Aug. 20th. Five Forks, Wednesday, Aug 21st. White Oak, Thursday, Aug 22d. Wexford, Friday, Aug 23d. Marburg, Monday, Aug 26th. Bear Creek, Tuesday, Aug. 27th. Stafford, Wednesday, Aug. 28th.

' the purchases of Wur Savings Stanips, and the per capita sales have now <] * reached $3.06. For the wee'v ending .August 3, sales amounting to $271,513.50 were reported, bringing the total sales since the beginning of the campaign up to $5,030,846.75? ^ only about one-sixth of the State's Pp 1 quota for the year, and while the * sales now are regarded as fair in comparison with what they were before June, it is obvious that the men, women, and children of the Palmetto State must buy more W. S. S. in the same enthusiastic spirit which characterizes the splendid fighting the Sammies are* now doing on the battlefields of France. Charleston, with sales almost of $6.00 per capita, still maintains its lead in total sales, followed in order by Spartanburg, York, Beaufort, Anderson, (Ireenville, Florence, and Marion, each of which counties has sold more than $4.00 worth of W. S. S. per capita. For the week ending August 3, Dillon county led in sales amounting to 51 cents per capita, followed by Florence which purchased 49 cents per capita, for that week. Chesterfield county is 37th in the list of counties, or 9th from the bottom. This county has bought stamps at the hate of $1.58 per capita. W. 3.8.

C. fcv CHANGE EFFECTED ON THE WESTERN FRONT RARELY EQUALLED IN HISTORY I With the French Army in France, ' Auk- 13.?After the battle of the ' Avre, the situation of the belligerants presents a change which for rapidity and extent has rarely been approached in military history. Marshal Foch's strategy and the masterly | I tactics of the generals commanding 1 the armies under him have in three-5 weeks wrested from the Germans what required four months for them j o obtain at a cost variously estimated j it from 700,000 to 1,000,000 men. The immediate resuits of the counter-offensive which will have the ' reatest bearing on subsequent oper- ' itions are the clearing of the Cha- 1 tcau-Thierry pocket, ending the men- ' ice to Epernay and Paris; the liber- ( ation of Montdidicr, ending thp men- ' ice to Amiens; the freeing of the 1 uportant eastern railroad line from * 'aris to Chalons, and the equally im- 1 wrtant northern line from Paris to \miens, restoring to the allies means ' communication which give them normously greater ease in future ! novcments of troops. These successes render impossible ;ny rupture of the line which would ' separate the French armies of the :enter from those of the east, or a upture of the junction between the l French and British. The most disistrous consequences to the Germans, iside from the heavy losses they sus- ' aincd in men and material, is the ^ ollapse of their plan to drive wedges nto the allied lines and the substurial widening and joining which have hreatened general dislocation. Marshal Foch's strategy in redue- * ng the salient wedges wrested the intiative in operations from the Gernans, at once obliging them either .0 order a general retreat to a strong ine such as the Somme, or to engage eserves. The enemy adopted the >econd alternative, which having fa 'd, makes eventual retirement 11.1lensely more difficult. The lirst phase of the battle of the \vre finds the French with a footing ipon Ihiescourt plateau, west of Joyon, which has vital importance in 'uture operations. The Germans must ither recapture the position, at high os*t, if he can, or abandon Noyon, /hich means the fall of Roye and !,assigny, which already are under nminent menace of capture. 1NLISTMENTS IN NAVY TEMPORARILY STOPPED The Navy Department, working in injunction with the War Dcpnrtnent, in the carrying out of the new Iraft law of 18 to 45 years that is now >efore Congress, has discontinued nlistments in all branches of Naval Service for the present. This order which has stopped all eeruiting in the country does not lecessarily mean that no more men /ill be accepted for the Navy, but /as made in order to stop indiscrimilate enlistments of men who will be ccepted by the new law and keep hem in useful occupations that must\' e carried on until the government c ;ees fit to place them elscwher. * Enlistments in the navy now total 180,000 men, according to Rear Ad- 11 liral Palmer, of the bureau of navigation, who appeared before the sen ite military committee this week. Ad- 11 niral Palmer further stated that he ! lid not believe t,o furnish the requir d number of men for the navy, that ny changes needed be made in the rmy draft law, and that the navy ? . ould depend upon volunteers to cary on the great work that it is doing, f As soon as any changes are made ' n regdrd to navy enlistments the <eople of the State \frill be notified i < iiiuuKii nit- newspapers, ami u m" !ers are received to continue enlhtnjr for this branch of the service, iroper publicity will be tfivon it.

The County Fair officials each fear have stressed the agricultural ;ide of the Fair and other features jave been allowed mainly in order hat expenses might be met. This year the Chesterfb|ld County "air will be the best eveiflReld. Five >ther fairs have been successively itaged but this year's exhibition will sxceed all previous efforts. The Fair Association is going to turchase one thousand dollars worth if war savings and thrift stamps and hese will be given as premiums in ieu of cash, the intention of the Fair Association being to help in the vinning of the war in every manner ossible. And the winner of the vaious prizes will be the proud posessors of Government securities hat are as good as gold itself. The County Fair this year will be icld on the new Fair grounds, on the luby-Mt. Croghan-Pngcland highway, there the Fair Association owns, duo o the foresight of its eleven teres of level land. The Fair site is n ideal one and is easily reached and L is believed by those in a position to now that the annual County Fairs an be pulled olf better outside the aroporate limits than inside the town. Tactically all Fair grounds every/here are outside the limits of towns, n moving to a new site?to land nvned by the Fair Association a tint- liiuvf nn? iii-fii 11wini1 one mat fill meet with the approval of the] leoplc of Chesterfield County, the I eople for whom the annual agriculural Chesterfield County Kair is held.

As the loan succeeds our nemies will sorrow; as it falls short hey will rejoice. Every dollar subiribcd will help and encourage the imerican soldiers and hurt and dere ss the enemies of America.
