We have no mind to make a bargain twice, No larger gain to make, But this we buy across the sword's red blade We swear shall justify the price we paid. Not with small counters did we seek this thing, But with blood Of youth, men's might and human suffering And stricken womanhood, These to the market of your wrath we brought And we shall have in full the Teace we bought. Tricksters and swindlers in the wide world's mart, Not yours to say, Nor, cringing, still withhold one little part For which we pay. Our dearest treasure in the scale is cast, Think you. we shall be cheated at the last? The first copy of the Caledonian's extra Monday morning was presented to Rev. George A. Martin", whose pub lic utterances throughout , the great war hav-3 been an inspiration to all his hears rj. No man in., St. Johns bury has had a wider visiosjfi or a more eloquent manner of presenting the vital issues of the conflict and it was a real pleasure to hand him the first copy of the paper that announced that it was all over. The governments that have been fighting the Allies in the great war have fallen to pieces like houses of cards-, and great problems of recon struction now face the world. The last chapter of the book of kings has been oper.ed and it is ' quite likely that monarchies are in the discard. The people will rule after this war and the despots have fled, or will be replaced by others more liberal and democratic. Monday's celebration -in, St. Johns bury was ctuickly planned by the offi cers of the Commercial Club, Presi dent Jame- Cosgrove and Vice-President Peck, Manager P. C. Brooks of the scale company, Roy Calderwood for the patriotic lodge of the Elks, and many others who quickly joined in to help make the affair the success that it was. Everyone ,who partici pated in the affair may rest assured that they had a part in making the jollification one of the events of the year. PRESS COMMENT Our Soldiers' Letters Somone said that the history of this war would be contained in the letters written home by the boys at the front. These are being widely published and as widely read. No other feature of this newspaper, we arc sure, retracts the attention that our soldiers' letter column does. And justly. These letters are writ ten most! within sound of the guns, with the scenes of this greatest of Avorld tragedies right before the au thors. They are written by our boys, whom we know and" whose faces are still fiesh to us. Not all cf them are literary gems, or flawless in spelling or diction, for they reflect the thoughts, of all classes and ranks of our citizen sol diers. Most of them were not in tended f oi publication, probably, and contain facti that might have been set down otherwise but facts, never theless. Some are surprising com mentaries disclosing a degree of acu men in the authors not suspected. One and all, they picture "the life" as it is the day-by-day experiences and impressions ot our brave boys over there. We seaivh them in vain for any sign of 'yellow." Their words, sim ple and straightforward without blus ter or boasting, ring with courage and confidence, while many strike a dis tinctly high note, reflecting a spirit of the most supreme type. Reader, don't miss a single one of these soldiers' letters. Randolph Herald. Optimistic Thought Terse sentences, briefly expressed, have great weight in leading to a happy life. .

Bell, chairman of the United War Work campaign of the town, Mrs. Bell, Miss Annette Bell and J. J. Maillett of South Lun enburg, Mrs. Willard G. King, Mrs. A.'W. Sugg, Mrs. Flora Balch, Rev G. W. Douglas and Lawrence Dodge attended the meeting of the Essex county workers of the drive at Guild hall in the Benton library. About 50 of the representative people of the county gathered there and listened with great interest to the addresses of Mr. Hurd of Burlington, Miss Rice and Mr. O'Brien of New York and Miss Southwick of Burlington. Miss Rice spoke of the work of the Y. M. C. A. in America telling of their care for.the girls who are working at the various camps as clerks, in the laun dries, in munition factories and other war industries, of the work among colored and foreign speaking girls, of the hostess houses and of the Red Cross nurses and workers of all kinds in France, of the work in Russia and the families aided in those war worn countries, emphasizing the fact that when the peace terms are signed, the work for both boys and girls will be more than ever needed, when mili tary discipline is somewhat relaxed, when the excitement of the fighting is over, and the" boy and girl are homesick but, unable to come back to their homes in America, then the seven societies must step to the front and care for the morale of all, pro viding them all the homelike comforts posible. Mr. O'Brien's slogan was "Co-operation." Every one is a soldier, men, women and children at home who are doing all they can to help on the boys overseas. The boys in France are the front line defences and the citiz ens at home the second line. The sacrifice is all in the front line while those at home are doing their duty when they do all they can, not "do ing their bit," a phrase which Mr. O'Brien disapproves of. America has stood for 142 years of freedom and civilization and everyone on the face of the earth who believes in this war for democracy of America and the Allies should contribute to aid the work or not be worthy to be called American citizens, and should not call it "sacrifice" but "duty." Each of the seven organizations is trying to give the home influences to keep every mother's boy clean and decent and send him home to every mother, wife or sweetheart true and clean. The 20th century is to be one of civ ilization of the highest kind other wise thi.5 Vv'ui- is in vain. After peace comes there will be still more need of aid and no stone should be left un turned, no effort left undone, or all will be lost by deterioration. Miss Southwick spoke of the work to be done by the Victory Boys and Girls in the coming drive, telling how it is to be accomplished, and giving several pleasing stories in illustra tion of what the work means to the young people. At the close of the addresses an op portunity war given for questions, and posters and literature given to the various chairmen present, after which the speakers left for a drive to Orleans via Island Pond where they were to speak that evening and then on to St. Johnsbury for the final meeting of the week in the Armory on Friday afternoon. The drive starts on the 11th and the committees will be appointed at once. .Lunenburg has not lailea to go over the top in any of the drives so far and will not let this be the time to slack up but will do her level best to go over her quota of $1025 in this United War Work drive. Privates Clyde Luther, Irving Kim ball and Fred Holloway have been at home on short furloughs during the weel Mr. and Mrs. Earl Lewis of Lan caster spent a day with Mr. and Mrs, Charles" Lewis and other relatives in Lunenburg recently. Messrs. Willson and Baldwin of Providence, R. I., were in town last week looking after their interests in the U. S. Bobbin and Shuttle Co.'s mill in the north part of the town They went from here to their mill at Willoughby K. O. Balch was in St. Johnsbury on business connected with Camp Winneshewauka on Wednesday. C. C. Temple, Mrs. A. J. Newman with Philip Sugg, chauffeur, went to St. Johnsbury on Thursday bringing home with them Mrs. Frank Temple, who will be the guest "of her son, C C. Temple at the Heights House for a time. Mrs. Temple was a former resident of Lunenburg and her. old neighbors are glad to see her once again. F. W. Wheelock, who has been at the Heights House during the sum mer, has moved into the bungalow which he has just completed at Fitz dale where he is bookkeeper for the i Fitzdale Paner Comnnnv. Mrs. I WheeiocK, wno has been with iriends in Lawrence, Mass., for a fortnight, will return home soon. Little Doris Murtaugh, two years old, youngest child of Mr. and Mrs. John Murtaugh, who was so serious ly ill with pneumonia, following in fluenza, and who seemed to be safely convalescent, died very suddenly on Thursday from heart failure. She was brought to Lancaster on Friday morning and laid to rest in the Cath olic cemetery on Saturday morning. Mr. and Mrs. Murtaugh and daugh ter, Marion, and Miss Flora Houston of Barre hospital, who so faithfully cared for her little niece, came from their home in Bellows Falls with little Doris and are now in Lunenburg, the Murtaughs with the Felix Murtaugh's and Miss Houston with, her sister, Mrs. Ben Gee. Much sympathey is felt for the families in their sorrow by their many friends. i Mr. and Mrs.". Irving Bowker were with Lyndqnville friends during the week past. The fake bulletin announcing the signing of the armistice by Germany on Thursday was received with much enthusiasm in Lunenburg, tho it seemed too good to be true. "Whist les at the Lunenburg Mfg. Co. and the Fitzdale Paper Co's plants blew long and loud, while at the latter place a big bonfire, parade with burn ing the Kaiser was followed by a dance. On Pond Hill a bonfire in the Bell pasture on Warren Hill was seen at the village and it was thought at first that Camp Winneshewauka was on fire which was soon corrected from the central telephone. If the demonstration of Thursday night was a dress rehearsal, we may look for "some time" when peace terms are really accepted and hostilities cease. -. Mrs. Charles Rogers was called to Mountome on Thursday by the ill ness of her daughter, Mrs. Hazel Twitchell.
