YKSandihe bumper wheal crop in America is something else that wjII “bump tiie kaiser.” “WoKK or fight” is the alterna- live presented to us. Yes that is the call to the unterriHed. Henry Ford running on the American ticket, has the poliiions of Michigan running around in circles. According to reports our marines learned a little German, limiting it 10 ” 'Haus mii ’em” or words to that effect. Before the war the (iermans made the hesi maps, but we won't have the maps ihey are irying lo make noa. HvI:RY time the hungry German soldier makes a gain of 100 yards — lie asks. ”is this Paris?” where he was promised a meal.

THOiiBLi-is always brewing in Germany and Austria, but the brewers thereof do not seem to know how lo place the product. A naval critic seems to attach importance to the Austrian fleet. There can’t be much left of it. The little Italian torpedo boats have cleaned up the big dreadnoughts. A man has to die to settle the question as to whether or not he is an indispensable man, and very few men can stand the “tombstone test.” It’s the fashion in some quarters 10 snear at “dandy soldiers” but the truth is that sort of man is al most always found in the front rank ofHghters. In response to the request of General Pershing his men will furnished w’hh safety razors, soap, hair brushes, comb, towels and tooth brushes. Some of these fine days the Kaiser will simultaneously discover (hat both the United States army and the w'ell known ocean are much larger than he expected.

Unfortunately for Charles he has become so stuck, like Brer Rabbit was to the tar baby, that the time for getting free has passed. If our dark skin boys don’t hur ry up they will not be able to claim the name of “Black Devils." The Italian Arditi are becoming known as “Black Fiends” and “Red Fiends” according to their fancy in color. Thh Kaiser must have been reading Wall Whitman on “loafing and inviting his soul,” when he was writing from “amid iny armies. ” He could take the lines of Walt as a kind of mono: “I celebrate Myself I chant the chant of dilation or pride.” iill»b1lebs MUSIAjT^QUIGKLf Thoss Who Do Not Make Ststsmsnti to Pood AdminlMretlon by July II Will Bt Cut Off From Sugar Cu^ |illss.» Hotsls, ■•ardlng Houses sni Irtetltutions Are Inotuded.—tpeoial Provision For Wholesalers and Jobbers.

RED CROSS NEWS. ************ One of the loveliest gifis received by the Weldon Red Cross recently was a box of baby's woolens (little Charlotte Ann’s)—the contribution of Mrs. C. R. Emry. Surely some little sick, thinly clad Belgian baby will be made more comfortable and happy by the receipt of these warm doihes, and the WeJdon Red Cross wishes to express its appre ciation for this valuable contribu tion. It may be that there are others who can make a similar contribu tion, and if so, the Red Cross will be so £lad to forward the same to the Belgian Relief Commission. The Red Cross workers in Bel gium say: "In Belgium the most touching things were Ihe affection and confldence of the children in everything American. The chil dren could not get near enough to the American Red Cross unirorm. They reached out to us, and were never so happy as when they could touch us or cling to us with their tiny hands.” So, when we buy nice, new warm clothes for our little ones, let's not forget those in Belgium who will be needing warm clothing, and who will be so grateful to receive wbai we hive 10 spare. Meat Most Be Sold Frwh BMAt it perishable, h ■Mwt be sold within about two w«ek»for whatever it will bring. A certain amount of beef is frozen for foreign shipment, but domestic markets demand fresh, ctulled, unfrozen beef. Swift & Company can not increase prices by withholding meat, be cause it will not keep fresh and salable for more than a few days after it reaches the market. Swift at Company cannot tell at the time of purchasing cattle, what price fresh meat will bring wtien put on sale. If between purchase and sale, market con ditions change, the price of meat must also change. The Food Administration Hmits our profit to 9 per cent on capital invested in the meat departments. This is about 3 cants per dollar of sales. No profit is guaranteed, and the risk of loss is not eliminated. Am a matter of fact, meat is oMen sold at a loss because of tba need of selling it before it Spoila. Swift & Company, U.S. A.
