GERMANY'S QUILT ESTABLISHED.
(Extracts from Prince Karl Llchnowsky's "My London Mission,
1912-1914," a copy of which has just reached this country. Price t
Lichnowsky, who was German Ambassador to England when th war
broke out, says that he wrote the document for his family archives,
but It was made public in Germany and created a great stir, the
Kaiser's government hastening to repudiate and suppress it)
"On Aug. 2 (1914), when I saw Asquith in order to make a final
. attempt, he was completely broken, and, although quite calm, tears
ran down his face." ,
"Of course it would only have needed a hint from Berlin to make
Count Bercatold (Austrian Foreign Minister In August, 1914) satisfy
himself with a diplomatic success and put up with the Serbian reply."
"The impression became ever stronger that we (Germany) desired
war fn all circumstances."
"Tjhus ended my London mission. It was wrecked not by the
perfidy of the British, but by the perfidy of our policy."
"t had to support in London a policy which I knew to be fallacious.
I was punished for it, for it was a sin against the Holy Ghost"

Already this month two shipments
of knitted goods have gone to South

pairs of socks made up the first lot,
they have been received and classed
as standard. The second shipment
consisted of thirty pairs of socks, fif
teen pairs of wristlets and ix trench
caps and has' not yet been . ack
The following suggestions are cop
ied from "Red Cross Briefs" the of
ficial bulletin of the Southern Divis
ion, and is quoted that all knijtters
may be aided in keeping Polk county
socks up to the standard. Mrs. Lind
sey will be glad to give directions
and lessons in making toes and in

ly but we want socks our boys can
Quite fift per cent of the socks
that are sent in to the Bureau of Sup
plies have to be made over or have
something done to. them. The most
of them have to be re-toed. Many of
the otherwise standard socks have. a
toe so pointed that it would make a
big lump in the toe of a man's shoe,
and he could not walk for very lQhg
with a pair of this kind on his feet.
"Again, frequently there are knots
on the inside of the foot. This will
not do, and can be overcome by splic-
ing me mreaas togetner wnen it is
necessary to piece them. It is im
possible for a soldier to wear a socjfc
with knots inside.
Remember the proper dimensions
for the socks and be sure to see that
they are correct before handing your
socks to th chapter for shipment.

FORD CARS AND WEBER WAGOK
Everything made of Wood and iron is Retting
higher in price all the time. We were fortunate
enough to place an order about nine months ojto for
a car load of the celebrated Weber Wagon, all sizes,
made by the International Harvester Co., at old
prices, and can today sell you cheaper than we can
now buy, even if we could get them at all.
We can save you money, while they last, and will
sell on easy terms.
We are also getting a few Ford Cars. Every
farmer that has lots of hauling should have one of
the new Ford Trucks.
Call and talk it over with us.
