President Wilson has designated this wot k as Red Cross Week throughout the United States and an effort is being made to raise one hundred million dollars for the Soci ety and ilr work. The Red Cross is 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 po to the battle lines in France or Russia, hut every one can give to its support. So far Smithfield has had no part in this work. It is expccted that every town in the country (five something before the campaign closes Sunday night. Smithfield wants to have a part in this great work, and an op portunity will be given the people of the town and community on Sunday afternoon next at the Opera House at four o'clock.

This is right anil we can not win the war without it. Hut there are many people who do not feel like going hungry in practicing economy while the brewers and distillers of the United States are allowed to go ahead with their business using seventy million bushels of grain an nually.

Every man, woman and child in America can, and is in duty bound to, do something for the cause of coun try and civilization. Produce, save, give ? these are patriotic term*. ? ? ? "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. Prof. T. Winjjate Andrews has boon elected superintendent of the Salisbury city schools to succeed Prof. A. T. Allen who rocs to -the State Hoard of Institute holders. Prof. Andrews won the place over T>0 other applicants and the vote for him was unanimous. He has been su perintendent of the Reidsville schools for four years. ITK.MS FROM FOl'R OAKS.
