the frfeatest humane society in ex
istence today and the work it has
done on a thousand battlefields can
never be measured. It is a work that
every one cannot do, hut every one
may have o part in it. All cannot

Russia, hut every one can give to its
So far Smithfield has had no part

this section come out to hear the ad
dresses and take part in this great
NOT GOING HUNGRY YKT.
The government is trying every
way to get the people to practice

or slightly above normal in the west
ern portions of the cotton region.
Light to moderate showers occurr
ed in Oklahoma, northern and east
ern Tennessee, and at a few stations
in extreme northwestern east Texas,

Every man, woman and child in
America can, and is in duty bound to,
do something for the cause of coun

"Cornbrtad for breakfast until the
end of thf war," is a slogan adopted
by the New York Produce Exchange.
With Southern cooks and recipes this
will be no privation ? but will help the
cause just at. mu< h.
? ? ?
Housewives should see that no fruit
jars are left en^pty this year. If you
can't fill them, have them filled. If
you can't have them filled, lend them
to someone who will use them.
? ? ?
Every breakfast at which corn muf
fins are substituted for wheat bread
releases a loaf of bread for the Al
lies?and i?. loaf of bread is as effec
tive as a bullet.
? ? ?
Waste is a crime u^ainst God, your
Country, world liberty, against your
self and those who come after you.
? ? ?
Chickens, a pig or a goat may bt
kept on what is inevitably wasted in
most households, with perhaps a lit
tle reinforcement at times.
? ? ?
A garden can be started almost
any month in the year. Don't neg
lect the < pportunity afforded by fall
and winter gardens. The more we
consume from gardens the more meat
and bread we can send to the Allies.
? ? ?
Hotels and restaurants would servo
more cornbrend, corn muffins, corn
ticks, grits and other corn products
instead of wheat products if their pa
trons requested them. t'ornbread for
breakfast for America would release
1 50,000,000 bushels of wheat for the
armies and needy civilian population
of Allied Countries.
* ? ?
Families who cannot keep a cow,
but who could keep a goat, could
get a fair supply of milk, to say
nothing of two or three kids a year,
from a "Nannie." Here is a neglect
ed opportunity. In some European
Countries goats are depended upon al
most entirely for the niilk supply.
? ? ?
People who keep pigs penned should
not neglect to provide them green
stuff as part of their ration. This can
often be gotten without cost and will
greatly reduce the amount of other
feed stuffs required.
? * ?
Use home products always in pref
erence to food and feed stuffs import
ed from other sections. The railways
are handicapped already in their ser
vice to their country and the less of
these products they have to haul the
better can they serve the Nation.
