Supply abundant food for tor our armies ana our nly, but also for a large part of the nations with whom we have now made common cause, in whose support and by whose side we shall be fighting. "We must supply shins bv the him. dreds out of our ship yards to-carry to me owier siae 01 me sea, submarines or no submarines, what will every day be needed there, and abundant materials out of our fields and our mines and our factories with which not only to clothe and equip our own forces on land and sea, but also to clothe and support our people for whom the gallant fellows under arms can no longer work to help clothe and equip the armies with which we are cooperating in Europe and to keep looms and manufactories there in raw material; coal to keep the fires going in ships at sea and in the furnaces of hundreds of factories across the sea; steel out of which to make arms and ammunition both here and there; rails for worn-out railways back of the fighting fronts; locomotives and rolling stock to take the place of those every day going to pieces; mules, horses, cattle, for labor and for military service; everything with which the people of England and Trance and Italy and Russia have usually supplied themselves but can not now afford the men, the materials or the machinery to make. "It is evident to every thinking man that our industries, on the farms, in the ship yards, in the mines, in the factories must be made more prolific and more efficient than ever, and that they must be more eco nomically .managed and better adapt ed to the particular requirements of our task than they have been and what I want to say is that the men and women who devote their thought and their energy to these things will be serving the country and conduct ing the fight for peace and freedom just as truly and just as effectively as the men on the battlefield or in the trenches. The industrial forces of the country, men and women alike, will be a great national, a great in ternational service army a notable and honored host engaged in the ser vice of the nation and the world, the efficient friends and saviors of free men everywhere. Thousands, nay, hundreds of thousands of men other wise liable to military service will of right- and of necessity be excused from that service and assigned to the fundamental, sustaining work of the fields and factories and the mines, and they will be as much a part of the great patriotic forces of the na tion as the men under fire. "I take the liberty, therefore, of addressing the word to the farmers of the country arid to all who work on the farms: n iaughton, Druggist.

Come in auU ails w about boll Supplies of All Kinds Needed. "The supreme need of our own na tion and of the nations with which we are co-operating is an abundance ot supplies and especially of food stuffs. The importance of an ade quate food supply, especially for the i weni, year, is superlative. With out abundant food, alike for the ar mies and the peoples now at war, the whole great enterprise upon which we have embarked will break down and fail. The world's food reserves are low. Not only during the pres ent emergency but for some time af ter peace shall have come both our own people and a large proportion of the people of Europe must rely up on the harvest in America. Upon the farmers of this country, therefore, in large measure rests the fate of the war and the fate of the nations. May the nation not count upon them to omit no step that will increase the production of their land or that will bring about the most effectual co operation in the sale and distribu tion of their products. The time is short. It is of the most imperative importance that everything possible be done and done immediately to make sure of large harvests. I call upon young men and old alike and upon the able-bodied boys of the land to accept and act upon this dutv to turn in hosts to the farms and make certain that no pains and no labor is lacking in this great matter. "I particularly appeal to the farm ers of the South to plant abundant food-stuffs as well as cotton. They can show their patriotism in no better or more convincing way than by re sisting the great temptation of the present price of cotton and helping, helping upon a great scale, to feed the nation and the peoples everywhere who are fighting for their liberties and for our own. The variety of their crops will be the visible meas ure of their comprehension of their national duty. "The government of the United States and the governments of the several States stand ready to co-operate. They will do everything possi ble to assist farmers in securing an adequate supply of seed, and adequate force of laborers when they are moat needed, at harvest time, and the means of expediting shipments of fer tilizers and farm machinery as well as of the crops themselves when har vested. The course of trade shall be as unhampered as it is possible to make it and there shall be no unwar ranted manipulation of the nation's food supply by those who handle it on its way to the consumer. This is our opprtunity to demonstrate the efficiency of a great democracy and we shall not fall short of it. Warning to Middlemen "This let me say to the middlemen of every .' Ji t, whether they are hand ling our foodstuffs or our raw mate rials of manufacture or the products of our mills and factories: Tie eyes of the com. us will be especially up on you. This is your opportunity for signal service, efficient and disin terested. The country expects you, as it expects all others, to forego unu sual profits, to organize and expedite shipments of supplies of every kind, but especially of food with an eye to the service you are rendering and in the spirit of those who enlist in the ranks, for their people, not for them selves. I shall confidently expect you to deserve and win the confidence of people of every sort and station. "To the men who run the railways of the country, whether they be man agers or operative employes, let me say that the railways are the arte ries of the nation's life and that up on them rests the immense responsi bility of seeing to it that those arte ries suffer no obstruction of any kind, no efficiency or slackened power. To the merchant let me suggest the mot to 'small profits and quick service,' and. to the ship builder the thought that the life of the war depends upon him. The food and the war supplies must be carried across the seas, no matter how many ships are sent to the bottom. The places of those that go down must be supplied and supplied at once. To the miner let me say that he stands where the far mer does: The work of the world waits on him. It he slackens or fails, armies and statesmen are helpless. He al so is enlisted in the great ser vice army. The manufacturer does not need to be told, I hope, that the nation looks to him to speed and per fect every process; and I want only to remind his employes that their service is absolutely indispensable and is counted on by every man who loves his country and its liberties. All Should Have Gardens. "Let me suggest also, that every one who creates or cultivates a gar den helps and helps greatly, to solve the problem of the feeding of the na tions; and that every housewife who practices strict economy puts herself in the ranks of those who serve the nation. This is the time for Ameri ca to correct her unpardonable fault of wastefulness and extravagance. Let every man and every woman as sume the duty of careful, provident use and expenditure as a public du--ty, as a dictate of patriotism which no one can now expect ever to be ex cused or forgiven for ignoring. "In the hope that this statement of the needs of the nation and oc the world in thi hour of supreme crisis may stimulate those to whom it comes and remind all who n a& re minder of the solemn dunes of a time such as the world h . never seen before, I beg that all editors and publishers everwhere will give as prominent publication and as wide circulation as possible to this appeal. I venture to suggest also to all ad vertising agencies they will perhaps be rendering a very substantial and timely service to the country if they would give it widespread repeti tion and I hope that clergymen will not think the theme of it an un worthy or impropriate subject of com ment and homily from their pulpits. "The supreme test of the nation has come. We must all speak, act, and serve together! "WOODROW WILSON." GROW SOME SWEET POTATOES It Is Not Too Late to Plant fhe Vines and Get a Crop. Safe Medicine for Children. "Is it safe?" is the first question to be considered when buying cough medicine for children. Chamberlain's Cough Remedy has long been a fa vorite with mothers of young chil dren as it contains no opium or other narcotic, and may be given to a child as confidently as to an adult. It is pleasant to take, too, which is of great importance when a medicine must be given to young children. This remedy is most effectual in re lieving coughs, colds and croup. Obtainable everywhere. Sweet potatoes are easily and cheaply grown in Florida. They are not expensive to plant, and require a minimum of cultivation. They are one of the main sources of food for many people in the State, and can be used for feeding livestock. Their production will fit in very nicely with the national program of planting ev ery acre to some food or feed crop, and because they are so easily grown, it would be a good policy for farm ers to increase the acreage planted to sweet potatoes, says J. M. Scott of the University of Florida experi ment station. Sweet potatoes do well on almost any class of well drained soil. To produce the maximum yield requires a liberal application of fertilizer. An application of 400 to 600 pounds per acre of a fertliizer analyzing 3 per cent ammonia, 6 per cent phosphoric acid, and 3 or 4 per cent potash, will give satisfactory results. hxperiments conducted by the Florida Station the last two years in dicate very plainly the need of pot ash in a fertilizer tq produce maxi mum yields. There are several varieties of sweet potatoes to choose from for planting. Among the best are Tri umph, Nancy Hall, Porto Rico Yam, and Providence. Sweet potato draws or slips may be planted at any time from March to July. If these are not available vines will be found very satisfac tory. For the late plantings, vines will give better results than the draws or slips. There is plenty of time to start the crop. Hundreds of acres of land in the State usually grow up in weeds. Why not make this land prudence a good marketable crop of sweet potatoes? Bankers Are Buying Pigs. The great need for money to fi nance farming operations has been re cognized by bankers throughout the state. In Baker, Holmes, Washing ton, Gadsden, and some other coun ties, the bankers have taken it upon themselves to buy pigs for boys who wish to enter the pig clubs of the State, that have been organized by the University of Florida extension division. Where the boys have the money, the bankers are helping them to lo cate desirable animals for purchase, but where the boys do not have the necessary funds, the bankers are buy ing pigs outright. Bankers have awakened to the need of increased production on the r lorida farms and they are ready to help the farmer who shows the abili ty to increase his operations. MRS.

His recitals and concerts given in addition to his opera engagements have endeared him to the music lovers of America. He says of the Weaver Piano. "The Weaver Piano with its distinguishing individuality meets every requirement of the piano virtuoso to a superlative degree It has fhat Doetic wealth of tone color, that honorable sonority and brilliant fnilnSs of clear accurate vibration, and the perfect balance of its regis ters which make it an aristocrat among the artistic pianos of the present day."

Glad well, of this lown, says: "When about 15 years of age, I suffered greatly . . . Sometimes would go a month or two, and I had terrible headache, backache, and bearing down pains, and would just drag and had no appetite. Then ... it would last . two weeks, and was so weakening, and my health was awful. My mother bought me a bottle 01 Cardui, and I began to improve after taking the first bottle, so kept it up till I took three ... I gained, and was well and strong, and I owe it all to Cardui. I am married now and have 3 children . . Have never had to have a doctor for female trouble, and just resort to Cardui if I need a tonic. I am glad to testify to what it has done for me, so as to help others." If you are nervous or weak, have head aches, backaches, or any of the other ailments so common to women, why not give Cardui a trial? Recommended by many physicians. In use over 40 years. Begin taking Cardui today. It may be the very medicine you need. NC-130 Christian Endeavor Work. As, unlike other Aprils just beforo the annual convention, the realization that for the writer this service "for Christ and the Church" is to cease in its official relationship to the State Union, it seems fitting to here give the last annual report in the Press, Sunshine and Introduction depart ments. Since April 1st, 1916, 750 press ar ticles have been mailed, more than in any other year of the about eleven years press C. E. work in our union. Faithful reporters in various sec tions of the union have aided all the way along. Friends and C. E. news quarters in other states have encour aged by country-wide items. About two days a week has been given for this work of culling locals from the exchange papers so kindly sent by some of the editors. This depart ment could not havtf been carried or without the continual co-operation of the Florida editors. We are grate ful to them. This has been our best-ever year for the Introduction Department, it taking about 100 letters to introduce Endeavorers coming here, leaving the state or moving about in it. Lacking chance at home for as much mimeograph sunshine writing or of birthday letters, the work has centered upon "proxy sermons" on the Sunday topics, about eight a week of these being distributed, mak ing a total of 297 in the year. It has been a great pleasure to write these letters. Except for press articles, usually more than one department has been presented in each letter mailed, this duplication saving postage. Of 289 letters mailed all come under the va ried work figures. Last year 1337 letters, 256 cards and 280 packages (usually of mark ed papers) were sent out. This year 1436 letters, 214 cards and 232 rolls of literature. At the beginning of the vear $50.00 was allowed for these departments, of which I have used $4(5.45. Of this amount $13.10 was spent for supplies, the rest for pos tage. As in past years this work has tak en most of my strength and time but has been a pleasure, because love was the controlling power. My work began April 1901, from which time every annual State meet ;na: has bnen attended. And although rot to attend the splendid conven tion this week, I will bo there in the way scattered comrades get-together, !' wireless-telegraphy of unison in spirit. Faithfully, GRACE A. TOWNSEND.
