We overheard the following remark
on the street the other day: "If one
of our boys hesitated as long in go
ing over the top as some people do in
buying Liberty bonds or War Savings
Stamps, he would be courtmartialed
and shot for cowardice and if the
same punishment were meted out to
non-combatants for financial coward
ice, an awful lot of people would be
shot every morning at sunrise." Say,
there was something to that little re
mark that made us think and we
finally thought we'd put it in print
so if we have any financial slackers
here, it would get to them and maybe
wcrk in under their hides.

All subscribers should be sure they
are paid in advance. It is only a
question of time when all papers will
be compelled to again increase their
subscription price if paper continues
to increase in price. It is a qnestion
of remaining in business or suspend
ing publication. If you are in ar
rears it will be a great favor to the
publisher if you call at the office and
pay up. It will also insure against
the loss of the local paper by suspension.
The Soldier's Chances.
Great as the danger and large as
the losses in the aggregate, the indi
vidual soldier has plenty of chances
of coming cut of the war unscathed,
or at least not badly injured.
Based on the mortality statistics of
the allied armies, a soldier's chances
are as follows:
Twenty-nine chances of coming
home to one chance of being killed.
Forty-nine chances of recovering
frcm wounds to one chance of dying
from them.
One chance in 60 of losing a limb.
Will live five years longer because
of physical training, is freer from dis
ease in the army than in civil life,
and has better medical care at the
front than at home.
In other wars from 10 to 15 men
died from disease to one from bullets;
in this war one man dies from disease
to every 10 from bullets.
For most of our fighting men who
do not escape scatheless, the govern
ment under the soldier and sailor in
surance laws gives protection to the
wounded and their dependents and to
the families and dependents of those
who make the supreme sacrifice for
their country. - - .

Finished with Whits Pine Barn Boards and Battens
Putting Farming-On a War Basis
FEW of us realize the importance of good farm buildings to
farm production to bigger crops and more pork and eggs
and milk. Yet we all realize the necessity of increasing produc
tion to the very limit in order that the war may be brought to a
more rapid and a successful conclusion.
A good barn properly ventilated and insulated saves feed.
Feed which might otherwise go to produce animal heat goes to
produce beef and milk.
Hog houses can be so designed and constructed as to make it possible to
get two litters a year instead of one and bigger, more healthy pigs.
Implement sheds are war measures because they conserve the nation's
steel they prolong the life of farm machinery and by keeping the N
parts from rusting and weathering, they eliminate breakage and save
the time spent in repair for productive tasks.
Poultry houses can be so built as to double the production of eggs on a
farm. And poultry raising is war work because it turns the waste
materials of the farm into foodstuffs.
And with every thought of grain crops comes the consideration of proper
and safe grain storage buildings.
Lumber is not high in comparison wilh other things. A 250-pound hog
or a bushel of wheat buys nearly twice as much lumber as it did three
years ago.
Lumbcrpriccs later on may find their level with other commodities.
Plan your buildings now. And see our plans for farm buildings
cf various types.
White Pine is the most economical of all woods for the outside of farm
buildings. It always stays where you put it and holds tight joints. No
warping or splitting or rotting and the easiest wood of all to work. .
Put your farm on a business as well as a war basis by building
now. Let us help you. v

cradled up on top of the woodshed
and were attempting to gain entrance
through a window when discovered
and chased away.

There are now more than 6600 Maxwell trucks in
use. And we cannot find a single business that
Maxwell isn't adapted to.
Up to this time we have listed over 300 kinds of
businesses in which Maxwell trucks ars employed.
They will do everything a 5-ton truck will do
except haul 5-tons at one load. 5-ton trucks .
aren't better. They're merely bigger.
Big trucks spend more gas hauling themselves
than the Maxwell uses at peak load.
How well those Maxwells have done their work
is shown by a service record of 99.6 per cent per
fectthe greatest record ever made by a motor
driven vehicle.
