The Democrats of Alauianee county are called to meet in uiam convention on Saturday, August 3, 1918, at 12 o'clock noon, at the Court House in Graham, for the' purpose of nominating candidates for legislative and county offices. All persons who intend to affili ate with the Democratic party in the elections of 1918, are invited to participate in this Convention. Ily order of the Executive Com mittee of Alamance county. E. S. I'AKKKK, Jit., Chtn'n County Dem. Kx. Com. Save a billion dollars ? It is not an impossible undertaking. One hundred million of people— the population of tho United States In round numbers—can save this stupendous sum in a single year with no appreciable self-denial. How?—is the natural inquiry. To do it means that each individual, old or young, must save $lO. See how small the sav ing for each day is—less than two and three-fourths cents —less than the postage stamp you place on your letter. Save it from what and how?—in and from the food you consume; by taking caro of everything, permitting no waste, using substitutes that are cheaper and plentiful and that are just as wholesome, nourishing and satis fyiog. _ You can do this "bit" to help wiu the war. The wheat crop in reduced by 40,000,0W> bushels its sliowu by the Government forecast for July a» compared wiili the June fore cast. The July forecast places the production at 931,000,000 buHhela, which is largely ahead of the average production of 809,- 000,000 bushels for the past. live years. The estimated corn crop for this year is 3,100,000,000. From these figures on (he two leading staple crops it appears there will be plenty to bread the folks at home, our soldiers and sailors and Allies. Late war new* indicates further successes of allied armies on West and Italian front*, the most active theatre the last day or two being on the Italian front. The French, English.

This im mense preparation no doubt strikes terror to the hearts of Prussian war lords. Washington Is, it la Indlevi d, arranging to help Husaia, .but the policy of the Ooveruinent haa not ■ yet been made public. It appears now that Russia haa had enough of "German made peace." The Kaiser must have been reading Walt Whitman on "loaf ing and Inviting his soul," when be was writing from "amid my armies." He could take the lines of Walt as a kind of motto: "I celebrate Myself .... I chant tho chant of dilation or pride." The L W. W. according to testi mony at the trial, waa planning an enormous strike in the steel industry. The time seems to be approaching as the evidence piles np, when the government will feel justified in doing some striking.

Al Fair brother says in his Greensboro Record: "And .so it comes quickly. A week a*o we wrote that, Wilson woultjrrun, be forced to run for a third term, because he is the war president and tho American peo ple were not going to swap horses while crossing a stream. And this woek Vice-President Marshall presented his name to a demo cratic convention in Indiana, and the cheers were teirilic. It goes without saying that the Wilson boom for 1920 has been launched, and it further goes without saying that he will bo tho democratic nominee and tho next president. .No other man in America has proven as big as Wilson. Kight now h« has more on his hands than any other man, aud by divine assistance lie takes care of his stu pendous job with apparent ease. The war will not bo over by 1920, tho Germans aro largely whipped, but there is so much to do, that Wilson should continue. "Roosevelt is tlio only republi can who will ruu, anil he wilt not be elected. The American people are uot juat now caring much about politics. They want to win the war and they are not golug to allow politicians to mix things up. For President in 1920, Wood row Wilson, of New Jersey."

ITALIANS' STEADY ADVANCE Operations In Lowlands Nsar Mouth of Plavo Are Progressing and Line Has Been Extended. The British front east of Amiens, on each side of the Avre and along the Somme river, seems to be the storm center of the battle front In France. Here the Australians, assisted by American detachments, surged for ward on July 4 and drove the Germans out of the village of Hamel and the Valro and Hamel woods, to the south, at the same time launching a second ary attack on the German positions north of the Somme. Since that time the lines before Amiens have been very active. The Germans have been rspulsed In attempt to retake the village of Hamel and the wooded positions of the Aus tralians further south. The British official report says that the enemy was stopped easily but the Germans claim to have checked the British forces east of Hamel and to have thrown them back to their original lines at Vlllers-Brotonneux. With the exception of aerial com bats the American front has bean calm. The German official statement tells of British attack In the Ypres region, adding that these assaults were re pulsed. Heavy artillery fire In this neighborhood reported from London, don. In the meantlfne tho French liavo been content to hold and consolidate their new positions near Moulln-Sous- Totent and Autreches, northwest of Soissons, whero In two recent French attacks the Germans suffered sever# casualties and lost many prisoners. The French war office says that dar ing the past day there has been heavy artillery firing In the neigh borhoods of Outry and Mont Qobert, which is on the front southwest of Soissons, where the French won ground by a dashing attack last week. Italian forces operating In the low lands near the mouth of the Plave are making steady progress, accord lag to the statement issued by the war office today. In the mountain section of the front the statement says that the Italians have extended their lines at the head of Calclno val ley and havj held tho ground thus gained In spite of heavy counter-at tacks by the Austro-Hungarlans.

Washington. lndefinite postpone ment of the strike of telegraphers em ployed by the Western Union 1"el8- graph Company was announced by Secretary of Labor Wilson. Sceretary Wilson said that Mr. Konenkamp, who Is In Chicago, bad given him every assurance that the strike order would not be put Into effect and that any walkout woudl be postponed Indefinitely. It was under stood that the union president agreed to this course because Congress now Is considering a new resolution au thorizing the President to take over and operate during the war all tele graph, telephone, cable and radio sys tems. In a final (ffort to avert tfle strike, Mr. Wilson sent Mr. Konenkamp a tel egram urging delay and later called In Samuel Oompers, president of tho American Federation of Labor. Mr. Wilson's telegram to Mr. Konen kamp said: "I earnestly request, In rlew of the general situation and the Imperative neceftslty of avoiding Interference with the prompt transmission of communi cations which may be of vital import ance in the prosecution of the war, that steps to prevent any strife be taken until I can have a conference with you and others. The Congreß3 Is now dealing with the subject and undoubtedly exact Justice will be done all the parties at Interest. This re quest Is made in the interest of our country. I feel sure it will be heeded by you." Mr. Oompers' telegram follows: "Secretary Wilson, of the depart ment of labor, invited me to confer with him In regard to the threatened telegraphic situation and' he showed me the telegram he sent you. A strike of the telegraphers at this time and while therp Is a fair chance of an early, fair and honorable adjust ment, would be most unfortunate, and generally held to be unjustifiable and perhaps defeat Its very objects. To avoid any hindrance to our govern ment's war program even in the slightest Is my warrant to urge you to at once exercise your every power to postpone the strike for a time." S. J. Konenkamp sent the follow ing reply to Secretary of Labor Wil son: » > . , "Your telegram has been received and would flay that the commercial telegraphers have been most anxious at aH times to do everything within their power to avert a strike and your request under the circumstances you have mentioned will be cheerfully complied with."

Foster- Milburn Co., Prop*,, Buffalo, N. Y, FRENCH GAM NEW FRONT OF 8 HUES BY A SUDDEN ATTACK ENEMY WAS DRIVEN BACK ALMOST TWO MILES. HAVE STRAIGHTENED OUT ANGLE Australian* Drive the German* and Straighten an Awkward Angle * In Thalr Llna. Continuing their aggressive defense In the face of the Impending Ger man offensive along the western bat tle front, the French have once more attacked the enemy southwest of Solssons. Launching their blow from the eastern side of the Rets forest, north of Longpont, the French have advanced over a front .of approxi mately two mllea, taking Chavlgny farm and the slopes to the north and south of It Several hundred prison ers were captured by the French In their sudden attack. The assault may ybe linked up closely with the recent offensive op erations at St. Pierre Aigle and gives the French a new front line from Longpont north as far as the southern limits of Ambleny, a distance of al most eight miless. Australian troops holding positions astride the Somme river east of Ami ens and north of Hamel have swept the Germans back over a front of more than a mile and straightened out an awkward angle held by the Ger mans. Italian forces operating on the ex treme left wing of the allied line In Albania, have struck hard at Austrian positions along the Voyusa (Vojutza) river, which flows Into the Adriatic about 20 miles north of the town*of Avlona, one of the most Important places In southern Albania. Vienna admits that the Austrian "advanced posts have been withdrawn to their main positions." This report from Austrian headquarters probably re fers to the action mentioned in the French official statement on Sunday night. It was said by the war office at Paris that French and Italian forces had seized heights In western Albania and had held them against counter-attacks. Germany seems on the eve of rele gating the Brest-Lltovsk peace treaty Into the "scrap of paper" category, for there are indications that German troops may be sent to Moscow in the near future. There are large Teutonic forces within 800 miles of Moscow and It Is reported that they are being heavily reinforced. REDUCTION IN PRICE OF COTTON PRODUCTB Washington.—Prices for cotton products showing reductions of from 20 to 30 per cent as compared with market prices were approved by President Wilson. The prices were agreed upon at conferences between the price-fixing committee of the war Industries board and a committee rep resenting cotton goods manufacturers. The new prices afreet chiefly cotton place goods of which the government Is a heavy purchaser. They apply, however, to civilian as well as gov ernment purchases. The price-fixing oommlttee's actlofi with regard to fin ished cotton Is believed to be the forerunner of price-fixing on virtually all other commodities of which the government is a large purchaser.

FARMER TRAVELS 30 MILES TO GET DRECO FOR WIFE. Prominent North Carolinian Tells WhT He Came All the Wajr From Yadkinville to Winston , Salem For Medicine. O'Hanlon's Drug Store iu VViu ston-Salem was crowded with men and Komen early one moroing not many days ago when E. J. Eaton, r.he prominent and influential planter of Yadkinville, R. F. D. 2, came in and told an interesting story of bow his wife wan relieved from a sevens and particularly painfnl case of stomach trouble of years standing. \ "I came 30 miles this morning, all the way from Yadkinville," declared Mr. Eaton in answer to questions from a number of his friends who happened to be pres ent. "The reason for the trip was that my wife had just finished the first bottle of this wonderful medicine, Dreco, and wanted a fresh supply in a hurry. If you could see the difference thiß first bottle of Dreco has made in her you wouldn't wonder I was anxious to get her a fresh supply. "Why, for years she has been in declining health. Indigestion, pains in the back and limbs, heart flutterings and loss of rest seemed to drag her down and down. She is 54 years old and although she h;is tried many differeut remedies nothing seemed to help her until just lately when a friend told her about Dreco. She has only taken one bottle of this medicine and already we can see splendid re sults. If she keeps on improving at the rate she is going she will soon be a well woman." Both Mr. and Mrs. Eaton are members of the Missionary Bap tist church and are most highly thought of in Yadkinville. They also have a host of friends in other sections who will be delighted to hear of the wonderful results Mrs. Eaton is securing from this won derful herbal medicine, Dreco. Dreco is recommended and sold in Graham by GraliAni Drug Co. Conversion j>f Liberty Loan Bonds— Interest Rates. Lfberty bonds of the first and second issues and those obtained by converting bonds of the first ißsue into 4 percent bonds can be .ton verted into 4K per cent. Liberty bonds during the six months' pe riod beginning May 9, and ending September 9, 1918. The new bonds will be dated May 9, 1918. After November 9, 1918, no .fur ther rights of conversion will at tach to the 4 per cent, bonds, ei ther the original or the second loan or those obtained by conversion of bonds of the first loan. All of the 4 1-4 per cent, bonds are noncon vertible. Bonds for conversion may be sur rendered at any Federal Reserve Bank or at the Treasury Depart ment. Registered bonds must be assigned to the Secretary of the Treasury for conversion, but Stieh assignment need not ba witnessed. On conversion of registered bonds registered bonds only will be de livered, neither change of owner ship nor change into coupon bonds being permitted. Coupon bonds, Jiowever, may be converted into registered bonds upon request. Coupon bonds must May 15 or Juno 15, 1918, coupons detached and all subsequent cou pons attached. Coupon bonds, is sued from conversion will have only tour interest coupons attach ed, and later must be exchanged for new bonds with the full num ber of coupous attached. Secretary McAdoo officially cor rects a statement appearing in va rious newspapers that the Fourth Liberty Loan will bear interest at the rate of per cent. He states that no thought has been enter tained of issuing bonds of the 4th loan at a higher rate of interest than 4X per cent. It is interesting to recall here the Secretary's appeal in his third Liberty Loan speeches that the rate of interest for Government loans be stabilized at A'A per cent. He said then that as an intelligent people we should make a stand for the financing of our Govern ment during the period of the war at a stabilized rate of interest, naming 4K per cent as the proper figure, ao that all investments ana business might be adjusted on that basis. In his letter ta Majority Leader Kltchin he strongly urges stabilizing the rate at 4' per cent. The Secretary of the Treasury has also asserted that he did not think that the patriotism of the American people was measured by the rate of interest on a Govern ment bond and the support the people gave the Third Liberty Loan seems to have justified his be lief. ARB YOU ONE Of THEM? There are a great many people who would be very much ueneflt ed by taking Chamberlain's Tab lets for a weak disordered stom ach. Are you one of them? Mra. M: R. Searl, Baldwiusville, N.

Our rfrugglst advised me to take Chamberlain's Tablets. I took a bottle home and the first dose relieved me wonderfully, and I kept on taking them until cured." whese tablets do not relieve pain but after the pain has been reliev ed may prevent Its recurrence.
