War rand, I wee assured we would cornel eel victorious la our effort! to raise a quota ef 11600. The reeulta from thee* townahips wa? the great ?at auiptlso of all for everything seaamd eo diaeouraging in each at Ufa beginning. But after thaoe Mad people had beau aomewhat In hiimad ia to what their duty waa they determined to "go over the top" aad to be aatisfled with noth ing leas than a decisive victory. TWf are entitled to special mention a* they got a late start. The figures given on this page by the treaaurer riiosr that something ever $2*00 has been subscribed for the fond. This result shows up very well for the County, but is not a dollar more than should hare ben given, in fact, not as much. Our people were thoroughly uninformed at the beginning of the campaign H aa to the nature, scope, ane possi bilities of the Y. M. C. A. work in ear own army and eavy aad these ad ear allies. And quite a greet aaaibw of them are still uninform ed. Could our entire constituency bare been iaatrueted we would have reached the $6,000 mark. I was somewhat doubtful myself about obtaining the $1800 asked from the County. But after I knew 'more thoroughly what waa being aecom pHshed by the work for which this dent ear people would far exceed the quote, if only we could present the awtter to them la an intelligent way. We have attempted to do that vary thing and the citizenship of the County, and a good people thv are, have measured up to eve ry expectation. I accepted the chairmanship with great trepida tion, but all my doubts and feats vanished after I had bean In the campaign a few days. Bat please tot honor be bestowed whan it is doe. The results would have been unobtainable with out the most loyal and active 'co operation of the township chairmen and their ?istsnts. They have been an faithful; and I know that esvenri of them have made sacrifl aas both as to themselves and their time. To eaeh and ail of them ? wieh to sipi?i my most grateful thanka. And, I most not forget to mention and thank the preachers of the County both colored and white of all denominations, for their as sistance. In fact I wish to include la the Hat each individual who has been of any service at ail In the campaign. Bat, avovs all' things much credit Is due our aolored friends for their unfeigned liberali ty. They have Riven more than their proportionate share of the ' aum raised In my own township almost half of the amount reported waa given by the colored people.

SfSKkt* ? / * TWO STORES ROBBED Robber* Entered Two Ahoekie Bu iness Houses Snadsy Ni<ht? Several Articles Stolen. A robber! entered the atorea of Z- V. Bellamy and Carter Broa. and Co. on Monday night and appro* priated about two or three hundred dollara worth of merchandise. En trance in both inataneee was made through the rear window; Ihe ro guish visitor waa evidently a person adept at valuea, for in each case he was painstaking enough to secure articles of immediate personal Tom. rather than taking anything that came into sight. The windows in the store of Z. V. Bellamy, beaidea being locked, were barred, but the burglar prised it up and broke the bare in making his entrance. Hd alao prised open the window in the store of Carter Bros, ft Co., thus making an easy entrance. Almost fifteen dollar* in cash waa taken from Bellamy's caah register, the money being the amount taken in on Sunday. Not a penny did he overlook, and Iras so discriminating as to sort ont and leave the soda checks which Were alao in the regis ter with the money. Other arti cles taken from this store included cigars, knives, a cheap razor, and a highly prised shot gun and hunting coat, the latter articles being the personal belongings of Mr. Bellamy. A Red Croat gift box waa likewise robbed of Ita contents and the bro ken box cast into the street The total value of merchandise taken My a hundred dollars. From the store of Carter Broa. ft Co. the "gentleman" secured four suits of clothes, an overcoat, two paira of shoes, several suits of un derwear, and an expensive suit caae in which to transport his supply of merchandise. He, however, failed to take the pants to three of the stolen suits, and also dropped the fifth suit at the window before get ting away. Ha was ..evidently an gered at finding nothing in the m> ney drawer, which be tore open and cast on the floor under the store counter. No trace was left behind, bqt the local authorities are on a lookout for a glimpse" of any or pait of the stolen goods. A report from Cofield received hefe Tuesday morning, stated that Britten's store was also burglariz ed Monday night, and about thirty dollars in cash and several articles of merchandise stolen.

WHAT MOTHERS CAN 00 Mother* An Asked to Ce-Operate With Quarantine Officer to Coa trol Contagions Diseases. Winton, Dee. 8-?Nobody know* what it meona to have a sick child like the mother, therefore, I am asking the mothers of this County, especially, to co-operate with me, their county quarantine officer, and by all working- together, to keep down those preventable diseases like whooping cough, measles, scar let fever and diptherta, as far as is possible. Some old fashioned mothera used to believe that whooping cough and measles were like taxes, just hA to come, and the sooner "it came and went" the better. But now moth ers know different TJhey know that even should children have the diseases when they grow up it goes less hard with them then, and they are more likely to recover without defects and impairments. Why, when a mother's baby, has measles if it is leas than five yeara old, she never knows whether it is going to be left blind, lame, or with weak ened heart or kidneys, for Hfe. Tip safest plan is to take no chances with any of these so-called children's diseased. Children don't have to have them, and why not protect them? Some of these things mothers can do to keen down whooping cough, measles, scarlet fever, infantile pa arlyais and (fiptheria in their homes and communities are, first, to sus pect the disease and keep home the children having the first symptona, such as sore throat tw heed eolds, particularly if any contagious-dis ease is in the community. Second, in case no physician ia called to at-; tend the child, the mother should ' see that the disease is reported at once to the county quarantine offi cer who will thai tell her what to do and how to treat the case. The law reqaires her to do this. Third, every mother should reapect the Quarantine Law. It may inconven ience her a little but what will a few days of inconvenience mean if it saves a child's life or even if it saves him from a lifelong defect, like blindness which is often one of the after effects of measles. The moth er who disregards the Quarantine Law is not only an undesirable citi len to hare in the community but is an enemy of little children. The number of cases of conta gious diseases in this County last month reported to me were: Mary Louise Deans, Ahoskie, R. F. D. diptheria; Bertha Lasslter, Aulan der. R. F. D/> diptheria. W. B.
