Let's go over the top with this as we
have with everything else.
How much are you going to give to
the Polk County Fair, to help defray
the expense of it? We need $350.00
Are there not seventy citizens of the
county who think enough of the en
terprise to donate $5.00 each? Only
four have done so yet. Come, let s

Down in Mississippi an old ex-Confederate
soldier has mortgaged his
home to donate funds to the , Red
Cross. If that isn't an example
which is worthy of emulation, we
miss our guess. This old veteran
knows what wonderful feats of char

The tobacco fund oes not grow
very rapidly just now, yet every let

American tobacco. One Dollar keeps

So far the American people have
GIVEN but little to help win the war.
that is in the way of finance. The
money paid out for Liberty Bonds
and War Savings Stamps is not
GIVEN, but MERELY LOANED,
and that AT GOOD INTEREST. So
loosen up and donate enough to hold
a fair in Polk .county next October.

By the sinking of vessels bound fo
American ports from Cuba, laden
with sugar, 24,000,000 pounds of su
gar have been sent to the bottom of
the Atlantic by the Hun U-boats.
This means that we will have to be a
little more saving in the use of sugar.
But whv should we worry in Western

able to raise as much sorghum as we
do, and the sweetest and best in

The last German - offensive has
slowed up, apparently having failed
to accomplish the object for which it
was intended. However we must not
congratulate ourselves that the Ger

attemptd by them. But we are pin

New Orleans has a colored boot
black called "Shorty," and for real,
pure, undefiled Americanism, "Shor

each month he installs a white nurse
from the Red Cross at his cash regis
ter, and no one pIso ic n
near it but her, and the entire day'sr
proceeas go to the Ked Cross. So far
it has ranged from $16.00 to $19.00
every month. Don't you think
bhorty is doing his best? He has
5een manned fourteen years, and has
had' fifteen births in his family in
that time, ten of whom are living. He

Saturday, June 29: Meeting of township and ward chairmen to tabu
late results of drive.
Pursuant to the Proclamation of the President of the United States and
of the Governor of North Carolina, I, F. H. Fries, North Carolina Director of
War Savings, acting under the authority of the United States Treasury
Department, have asked the ministers of the Gospel and the superintendents
of Sunday Schools to have a, War Savings message presented in every church
in North Carolina on Sunday, June 23, have called upon every township or
ward War Savings chairman to conduct a house-to-house canvass for War
Savings pledges during the week following, and have summoned citizens of
North Carolina to meet at their respective schoolhouses on Friday, June 28,
1918, the hour of the meeting to he fixed by the local chairman.
Local citizens will be named to conduct the schoolhouse meetings, who
will keep a record of the proceedings xnd report the names of all persons
present and pledging, and the names of all persons present and refusing or
neglecting to pledge, with their reasons for so doing.
War Savigs Stamps (which are United States Government Bonds, the
tame as Liberty Bonds) can be paid for during any month in the year of 1918,
but it is intended that subscriptions for them will be signed during the week
beginning June 23, and, if any deficit exists at the end of the house-to-house
canvass, at the schoolhouse meeting on June 28.
The price of each War Savings Stamp depends upon the month during
which it is bought. During June each Stamp will cost $4.17. During July
each Stamp will cost $4.18, and so on, om cent mora each month during
1918. On January 1, 1923, the Government of the United States will redeem
all War Savings Stamps at $5.00 each, no matter during which month in 1911
they were bought. They cost less during the early months of 1918 than during
the later months because the person who buys earlier has loaned his money
to the Government for a longer time than the one who buys later. . ,
