Champ Clark, of Mis siouri, Speaker oi the House of Congress, lectured at the Graded School au'ditjrium on Thursday night on Picturesque Public Men which was very interesting Mr. Clark having been in congress for the last generation gaining a .personal knowledge of such great I men as Tom Reed, J. G. Blaine. Chas. F. crisp, Sam J. Randall, Jno. T. Carlisle, Wm, F. Vilas, and all thecongressional lights of this age. His tribute to Claude Kitchin was splendid Mr. Clark is decidedly the biggest man who has ever visited Williamston and he has left impressions to bear upon the minds of our citizens for some time to come. In Memoriam Dead, our dear one dead! Why should our eyes grow dim? Choke back the tears, we will Be proud and glad. No black upon our service flag for him Our country called We gave all we had. Now that this brave young spirit paid the prhe,, ® Now that he has made the last great sacrifice, In Gods' celestial legions now enrolled Change we the azure star to gleaming gold. T So may his spirit shining thru the night Over our land of freedom far and wide Enkindle in all hearts an equal light » For love and truth, for which he fought and died, He left his home in perfect health He looked so young We little thought how soon he'd be Hfkin a soldiers grave. Out Beneath the Lillies of France he is lying The silent stars in love look down and see What a glory was his in dying For Liberty, Country and God. Clyde Mizelle.

Friends: How very very much I would like to write to each of you and tell each personally how much I appreciate your thoughts of one who is quite a far way from you. But should I undertake such a task, (for task it would be as I have so many who are my friends in old Martin County), I am a fraid that 1 would not have time for any other duties. You will please take this mess age, each one of yon, as* a per sonal letter from me and know that although 1 have not written to you, 1 am constantly thinking of all and I am only waiting for that glorious day when 1 shall be back with you once again. Since leaving the States, July 23rd., 1917, 1 have had many varied experiences which would interest all to a certain extent, 1 am sure, but especially those who know something about the aviation gam\ Some day 1 hope to he able to relate them to you. I am very glad to be able to say that I am well, happy and getting al«ng very well in every respect. The only thing 1 would have you do to give me mure pleasure is for each one of you to write me a long letter telling me all the news, Do not think that you do not know anything to tell me for I would be so very interested in anything at alkFor instance, how did the crops turn out? Were the prices good? Im provements going on, And Oh! just ANYTHING.

Profiteering and speculation will be punished ruthlessly. Vol untary, contributions to the Red Cross will no longer be accepted in lieu of more drastic actions Merchants who are found to be willfully disregarding food rules and regulations, especially those relating to margins of profit, will be put out of business until normal times come again. In line with this policy the Food Administsation has fixed specific margins upon an increas ed number of food products. Their margins are absolute and any merchant who exceeds them will be subject to discipline by the Food Administrator The pro ducts upon which margins have been fixed and the margins there on are as follows: Cash r 1 Creitit >' Carry Delivery }*r. bbl Flour (wheat, barley, rye, corn) 1.00 120 Corji meal " 3-4 clc Hominy & grits 21 2c 3c Sugar lc 1 Oatmeal - bulk 1 l-2c 2c Lard & lard substi tutes - bulk 5 fie Break fast bacon ( ic per lb may be added for slicing) *>• Heavy bacon - r >c "> c Ham (4c par lb may be added for slicing) »'»c 7c Cheese 7c 8c Butter " fic 7c Butter substitutes 5c fic Hggs 7c 8e Potatoes lc Onions 3c 34 per ct per ct Evaporated milk 25 30 Oatmeal pk'gs 25 30 Rice "•> Beans > «^0 Edible starch 25 30 Corn syrup 2.) 30 Canned corn, peas, tomatoes 33' 40 Canned salmon, chums pink and red.

People Do Not Get In flue ma From The Sick | It is established on good au tority since September Ist up to ((ate we- have had 350,000 eases ot' intiuenza in North Car olina, and mat 250.000 of these cases were contracted from well people, This is more than twice a? many as were contracted from sick people. We all know that out'is much more liable to be | bitten by a snake in the grass tban by one in the open where it can be yeen The same reason ing is true with many diseases One is not so liable to Ret influ enza, scarlet fever, whooping cough, measles, diptheria, and nuwiv other diseases from aick people as from well people who carry the disease germs in their mouths. When the news gets circulat ed around in a community that some a contagious di sease most people get afraid and stay from him. The few people who do go to see him usually wash their hands and use other precautions before leaving the sick room. Sick people are con fined to a very limited area and come in contact with very few people, and therfore they can't spread disease very widely Hut listen! the fellow who gets the disease is infected from one to several days before He comes down. Between the time he gets the disease germs in his mouth and the time he gets sick is the most dangeeous period. During this time the infected person, not suspecting how dangerous he is, goes into crowds at theat ers, dances, moving picture shows, on railroad cars, and in other public places, and there he scatters the disease germs. People should know these facts, and they should also know that many persons carry the disease germs in their mouths who never have the disease. Peo ple must always be on guard if they hope to prevent getting and spreading diseases They should always use separate drinking cups, dishes, and tow els, or have them boiled before using them after another, and they should hold a handkerchief aver the mouth and noSte when coughing or sneezing When an Epidemic Disease is Present in The Community, Stay Away From Public Meetings. In analyzing the requirements for the prevention of diseases, the methods narrow themselves down to individual effort, and the sooner the people, individu ally realize their responsibility in disease prevention, the better it will be for the people, collec tively. Report all case of whooping cough, measles, diphtheria, and scarlet fever promptly, and vou will be instructed how to prevent their spread Wni G, Warren Asst. (Collaborating Epidemiolo gist.

There is as much plant food in a ton of leaves as in a ton of good stable manure. DON'T use your best timber for llrewood because it is near or easy to split Use op laps, down logs and defective and inferior trees In this way you improve your woodland, reduce the fire danger, utilize waste material and save the good trees for other uses.
