Cannon handles the best of meat
It's tender, juicy, nice and sweetr
Cnnnon's name is guarantee,
And Cannon's meats look good to me.
I've almost made myself a glutton, .
About "Tom" Cannon's nice choice mutton,
And my very soul seems to find relief,
In Cannon's pork and Cannon's beef.
That steak he sells, as sure's you're born,
Ain-'t reputed as coming from around the horn.
Sensible folks there always flops,
To get their fill of nice pork chops.
Poultry, too, he has on hand,
And I buy them there whenever I can.
Those oystes there are fat and nice,
And certainly worth two timej the price.
Don't chew the rag but chew some meat;
Cannon keeps a line complete.
Since bread alone, you cannot eat,
Let Thomas Cannon sell "ou that meat.

United States Now Imports
Argentina Cheese; Exports
Have Greatly Increased.
In August of this year exactly 99
pounds of European cheese were im
ported by the United States, coming
from Italy. During 1914, before the
war, 36,900 tons were bought in Eu
rope. Argentina has turned to cheese
making on a large scale, and is now
placing large quantities in the United
States, although more cheese is now
being exported than imported, in
September 1,000 tons were sold
abroad, being distributed to 50 coun
tries. War's Demand for Men
With Scientific Training
Will Steadily Increase.
Secretary of War Newton D- Bak
er urges men in scientific institutions
to continue their training.
"The Government service will de
mand more and more scientifically
trained men," said he, "and I hope
those who are in charge of scientific
institutions will impress upon the
young men the importance of con
tinuing their studies,, except to the
extent that they are necessarily in
terrupted by a mandatory call under
the visions of the selective-service
law" , x - a

Editors of Belgian Paper
Find Safe Office in
"A Cellar on Wheels."
La Liber Belgique, the publication
issued "somewhere in Belgium" which
the Germans have been unable to sup
press, thus defines its office location:
"The editorial establishment being
no place of repose, a cellar on wheels
has been found more convenient.
"Business being at a standstill un
der German domination," it says, "we
have suppressed the page of adver
tisements and advise our readers to
save their money for better times."
Secretary of Agriculture
(o Issue Permits for
Importation of Ticky Cattle.
To incerase the "meat supply of the
country bars have been lowered for
the importation of cattle from the
tick-infested CeiiUal and South Am
erican countries.
Such animal must be slaughtered
immediately at ports of entry. For
the protection of domestic cattle and
to make sure that only wholesome
meat snail be produced from this
source, regulations, governing the

ment of cattte offered for importation.
20,000 Graduate Nurses
Will be Required
in Army Hospitals.
With a continuance of the war, in
the next year at least 20,000 nurses

uate nurses of the country only 3,500
have so far been assigned to duty in
Army service, and of this number
1,500 are in France.
An Armv nurse must be a graduate
of a training school for nurses and
must have served two years in a hos
pital. They are assigned to duty in
the United States or abroad, and pre
ferences are granted when conditions
permit. Nurses who prefer not to
have service abroad will have their

Decrease in Demand for
Manufactured Articles
Releases Labor for War Work.
Weavers laid, off by carpet facto
ries because the war has caused a
sharp decline in the purchase of floor
coverings are demanded by. woolen
and cotton-duck factories because war
orders have so increased their busi
nesses. Factories making gears and
other articles for pleasure automobiles
are lavine off help, while makers oi
trucks and service cars are caning ior
more labor.
Other industries suffering losses in
commercial business which result in
freeing a large part of their working
force for war work are manufacturers
of fine kid gloves, fancy sweaters,
btooms and brushes, typewriters, and
high-grade woodwork.

were ordered bv the officer in com
mand of the regiment to shoot all the
male inhabitants of Nomeny, because
the nonulation was foolishly attemp
ting to stay the advance of the Ger

broke into the houses, and seized all
who resisted, in order to execute them
according to martial law. The houses
which had not been already destroyed
by the French artillery and our own
were set on fire by us, so that nearly
the whole town was reduced to ashes.
It is a terrible sight when helpless

Little Luxuries Which .
Make Camp Life Pleasant.
Men at the cantonment buy many
articles at the post exchanges for less
money than they would have to pay
in their home-town stores. And the
post exchange manager is authority
for the statement that 40,000 men
make a tremendous demand for 5-cent
packages of candy. About 4 o'clock
in the afternoon there is. a general
!rush for apples, sweet crcakers, and
'coffee or milk, despite the fact that
i big dinners will be ready a couple of
hours later.

Listen, dear littlest children, and
you shall hear about the very first
Christmas day.
It was in a country across the sea,
far away from. here, that some shep
herds were watching their flocks one
night. The sheep were resting on
the grass, the little animals were fast
asleep beside their mothers, but the
kind shepherds were not asleep.
They were watching that no harm
should happen to tne sneep.
Perhaps they were looKing up at,
the stars and the beautiful moon
above them when suddenly there ap-
neared a wonderful light in the sky,
brighter than the moon or stars, as
if the sky had opened and they saw
the florv within. .
While the shenherds were looKing
lin, wondering wnaii was ine emise
of that strange light, a beautiful
shining angel came near to them and
"Fear not. T bnn you good t'd-
iner which shall De to an peopie.
This dav is born a Saviour, and ye
shall find the babe lying in a man
ger." And suddenlv the angel was 10m-
ed bv a multitude of the heavpnlv
host sineine nraises to God. This
was their soner:
GWv to God in the highest, and on
pnvth Peace, eood will toward men.
When the anpels had eone back to
heaven the shepherds said thev would
fa to Bethlehem and see this Sa
viour for whom the anecls sang.
They went, found him, a little baby,
in a stable with no cradle to lie in.
onlv n manerer for his bed. That
little babv was Jesus, who when he
grew up said:
"Let. the little children come unto
me and forbid them not, for of. such
i the kindom of heaven." His
hirthdav was the first Christmas
dav, and ever since that time we
keep that dav as a joyful and happy

Stomach Trouble and Constipation.
Those who are afflicted with stom
ach trouble and constipation should
read the following: "I have never
found anything so good for stomach
trouble and constipation as Chamber
lain's Tablets. I have used them off
and on now for the past two years.

the bowels but stimulate the liver and

Santa Claus being about to desert

In several American cities has been
revived the beautiful old custom of
the "waits" going about from house
to house singing the familiar old
songs. Light the Christmas candles
in your window if you want them to
stop before your home!
God rest you merry, gentlemen; let
nothing you dismay
they will surely sing that, perhaps
the ' best known of all old English
carols. And this too:
Hark! The herald angels sing,

And, of course, "O Little Town of
Perhaps, too, they will sing what is
said to be the earliest known Christ
mas carol, dating from the Anglo-
Norman days of the thirteenth cen
tury, which begins:
Lordlings. listen to our lay
We have come from far away
To seek Christmas.
In this mansion we are told
He his vearlv feast doth hold;
Tis today!
May joy come from God above
To all those who Christmas love.
This carol ends with the toast of
those days:
"Here, then, I bid you all wassail,
cursed be he who will not say drink-
hail. "Wassail meanine your
health and "drinkhail" being the usual
and courteous acknowledgment.

and is called the "Song of the An

While shenherds watched their flocks
by night,
All seated on the ground,
The angel of the Lord came down
And glory shone around.
Many are the. carols in which Brit

drink to the holly berry," pledges one
writer of songs, while another in "Un
der the Holly Bough" summons CA11
ye who have scorned each other or
injured friend or brother, come gath
er here."
And then there's that grand old
hymn. "Adeste Fideles," sung in ev
ery church in this land and in others,
at this Christmas season:
Oh, come, all ye faithful,
Joyful and triumphant!
Come ye, oh, come ye to Bethlehem!
Christmas would not be Christmas,
of course, if the "waits" were to neg
lect one other of the most beautiful
of old carols:
Holy night, peaceful night!
Through the darkness beams a light.
Holy night, peaceful night!
Yonder, where they sweet vigile
O'er the babe who, in silent sleep.
Rests in heavenly peace,
Rests in heavenly peace.
If there are any of you who have
in mind an after Christmas dinner
evening of gone to the accompani
ment of a harpsichord, a spinet, a lute
or a piano or even the modern and
much advertised disk machine, it
might be well to try this on the com
panv: , "Hark the Herald Angels Sing."
Hark! The herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn king;
Peace on earth and mercy mild,
God and sinners reconciled!- "
Joyful, all ye nations, rise,
Join "the triumph of the skies,
With the angelic host proclaim
Christ is born in Bethlehem.
Hark! The herald angels sing,
Glory to the newborn king!
