THE RED C ROSS WORK
One of the noblest work* ever en
gaged in is that of relieving suffering
as carried on by the Red Cross work
ers. Unselfish and sacrificing these
worker* go on the battlefields and in
to the field hospitals ami wherever
their services are needed. Theirs is a
missvn of mercy.
There are three Red Cross Chapters
in Johnrton County. Their member
ship is made up of the good and sym
, pathetic women of the county who feel
keenly the sufferings nnd hardships
of their brothers who are called to
the front. They are working daily
to make bandages and needed supplies
for the Red Cross workers in the fied
and hospitals. They are giving their
time and their work to this service.
They are calling on those who are able
to give, to give of their means that
this noble work may go forward. All
honor to the noble women of the
county who are working so diligently
to support the needs at this time.

ONE IN ONE HUNDRED.
One in one hundred. That is the
way it stands numerically, but when
it comes to power and influence one
to one hundred will not express it.
There are one hundred counties .in
North Carolina and one hundred food
administrators have been appointed.
Of these one hundred, ninety-nine are
men and one is n woman. Down in
Scotland County Miss Emily Walker,
of Laurinburg, has been chosen as
food administrator. She is assistant
county superintendent and is regarded
as a very efficient young woman.
These one hundred persons who
have been appointed by State Food
Administrator Henry F. Page to have
charge of the administration of the
food problems of the several counties
of the State compose an army whose
power and influence will go far be
yond their numerical strength. These
officials who are a part of the great
food administration organization of
the National Government are asked to
organize their counties through the
school committeemen and thus get in
touch with the remotest corners of the
nation. The work entrusted to their
care and atention is of the greatest
importune*?. They are to plan to con
serve and save our food supplies and
do all in their, power to help place the
nation in the best position to strength
en our allies across the seas. We can
help them by Bending them money and
men; we can do more than that. We
can help to feed them.
And in helping to feed the allies we
are not asked to do without ourselves.
We are only asked to save. We are
asked to substitute for meats and
wheat bread. We are asked to save
everything and waste nothing. In this
every one may have a part. We are
all in the army. Some are gOM to
fight the battles. Some are building
ships and manufacturing ammunitions
of war. Others are making crops and
helping to feed the folks. The non
produccrs may have a part in the
great work by saving. -All may be in
the grea': army for the freedom of the
Liberty Bonds are now on sale and
every person who car) buy one bond
e can do that much toward crushing the
^Military power of Germany. All can
Hpt go to Franc.- to fiirh; the enemy.
but all may have some part in the
Efreat war. Buying a Liberty Bond is
, one way to ' !p fight th 1 war. It is
Hfept onl> a way to fight Germany, but
is- an investment at the same time.

two Community Fairs, you may ex
pect the Johnston County l air to be
held at Kmithfield, November 7th, 8th
and 9th, to be indeed an agricultural
Fair. A greater effort has been made
this year to obtain exhibits of all
kinds than has heretofore been made.

satisfied. The Midway will b? snap

day and will be something entirely
new at a County Fair. The free at
tractions are of a high order and will
be much enjoyed. The exhibits of
manufactured articles displayed by
Johnston County manufacturers will
indeed be worth a trip to the Fair.

making some investigations in regard
to price of loaf bread, ..nd has found
that the price ranges from six cents
to fifteen cents for a sixteen-ounce
loaf. A 12-OUnce loaf sells for 5 cents

The venerable old axiom that "all

serious danger of being contradicted
in the cr.se of food prices.
