Shopping bugs, und work bags hnve
become indispensable now that women
nre busying themselves about so many
things, and especially since they are
making it a rule to carry small par
cels for themselves. Already the shops
are beginning to place new ones on
display, anticipating the holidays that
always bring a tremendous demand
for bags of all kinds. This year's
business is expecting a demand for
bags and for the materials of which
they are made, Ihat will exceed all
previous records. For the mood of
the public favors useful gifts at in -11-day
time and the bag holds first place
It is in new mountings and trim
mings that tie new bags differ from
those of last year. Metal and
celluloid divide honors in frames and
mountings for both shopping and work
hags. Work bags are a trifle smaller
than they were or those made of rib
bon and silk are. Many very practi
cal bags are made of cretonne and
lined with sateen and those intended
for daily service in all kinds of weath

shades. The bag is finished in the

taurants and barbershops by the po
lice, during which 20 negro loafers
were taken in tow and told that they
must either become acquainted with
some essential work at Camp Greene
or elsewhere at once or have warrants
sworn out for their arrest, apparently
has had its effect on the "loafers" in
that section of the city.
E. N. Farris, chairman of the com
munity labor board, and V. J. Braw
ley. chief of the local United States
labor and employment service bureau,
were both strong in their denuncia
tions of the "slacking loafers" of Char
lotte, and stated thaht the raid was
only the beginning of the fight to
make, with force if necessary, this
class of citizens do their share toward
the winning of the war.
Mr. Farris said: "There is an im
mediate and imperative demand for
laborers at both Camp Greene and
Camp Bragg, at Fayetteville, and it is
the patriotic duty of all men. knowing
themselves to be at work in non-essential
industries, to offer their services-
to Uncle Sam for government
"Ample warning has been given
both employers and employes of non
essential industries and the lime has
come when action must be 4.aken to
awaken the 'loafers' to the fnct that
they must go to work as the war in

the lack of labor.

Durham. Adoption of a "cash and
carry" plan by city market men in
Durham has resulted in a net decrease
of 10 per cent in the price of all f .er-h
meats, according to N. T. Lunsford,
inspector for this distri.2 working
under the food administration. Mr.
Lunsford was in the city yesterday
and made thorough investigat'on into
the price of meats owing to a report
from several housewives to the ef
fect that no decrease was noticeable
with the adoption of the new sy.-tem.
It is also reported that cafes have
gone up on their menu cards, in the
face of a decrease in prices quoted by
market men. The new system, ac
cording to Mr. Lunsford, has released
28 boys and six horses from the mar
ket. This means that this many boys
and horses can be turned to occupa
tions more useful to the government.
Buying Texas Cattle.
Charlotte. About 30 business man
and farmers attended a meeting in the
chamber of commerce a day or so ago
for the purpose of purchasing cattle
which the government is shipping ai.
reduced rates from the drought strick
en Texas cattle lands.
As a result of the meeting, several
Mecklenburg farmers made arrange
ments to have 164 head of cattle ship
ped here as soon rs possible. Ti. C.
Curtis was the unanimous choice of
the buyers to act as purchasing agent
and make the trip to Fort Worth,
Texas, end choose the cattle from the
herds according to specifications made
by the different buyers.
The cattle wanted are mostly of the
"beef" variety, although several regis
tered cattle were ordered. The buy
ers will pay the expenses of Mr. Cur

Among those from out of town who
attended the meeting were: T. F.

t HER REWARD !!
Bv MARGUERITE HAGGERTY
Situated on a lofty height, nestling
amid a grove of nature's luxuriant
pines and elms, stood an old-fashioned
country mansLon. On the shady veran
da of this ideal beauty spot was seat
ed a sweet-faced girl of seventeen.
Her thoughts were not -all sunshiny
ones, for every once in a while there
would flash across her fair coun
tenance a mirthful smile, which, how
ever, would soon become enveloped by
a more serious expression. Julia Cav
erly was loved both home and abroad.
Julia had one pet grievance. Ev
ery year she eagerly looked forward
to spending her summer at River
view, but the only obstacle to mar
her blissful reveries was the f orbid-
ding remembrance that her father
could spend but one week each sum
mer with them, as his business was
such that he could not remain away
for any longer period of time.
Suddenly Julia ran In from the
porch, ns she spied the postman.
"Mamma, you know daddy promised
to try and spend two weeks with us
this summer. I feel sure that I will
receive some welcome news from dear
old dad today." She leaped lu front
of the good-natured letter carrier who,
however, was not in the least sur
prised, for he had become accustomed
to the young girl's impulsive manners.
With a roguish smile she snatched the
letter from his hand, and headed to
ward her mother with all possible
speed. She hastily tore open the en
velope and devoured the contents. All
her joy had fled, as she threw the let
ter to the floor. "Oh, mamma, I can
not read it aloud. J think the very
words would choke me. I don't see
how business could be so pressing
that daddy could not spare us at least
one measly, little week."
j "Try to forget your troubles for the
present, dear," replied her mother,
"and run along and prepare for lunch
eon." After lunch a bevy of her dearest
girl friends arrived, and announced
that their yacht was rep.dy to start for
a long trip down the river. "The
party will start tomorrow," said one
of the girls, "so Julia, I thought we
would run over to remind you to be
readv on time, so we can launch forth
early in the morning." "How long
do you intend to be away?" asked
Julia. "It will be fully two weeks, my
bonny lass," was the answer of the
spokesman of the group, "so pack up
a well-stocked wardrobe."
I When the girls had departed Julia'
Informed her mother that she Intend
ed to visit Mrs. -Jackson, a dear old
lady who had been an Invalid for a
number of years.
j The pitiful eyes of the sick woman
'dilated with joy when she beheld in
the doorway the face of her generous
little benefactor. A soothing word and
' a gentle caress from Julia lightened
. the heart , of many a lonely soul, but
no love was ever more reciprocal than
j that which sprang up between Mrs.
! Jackson and Julia Caverly. A basket
of tastlV prepared dainties was la,ld
I on the table, and after a confidential
chat of an hour or so, Mrs. Jackson
reluctantly bade good-by to her little
The next, morning, Julia, in high
spirits, sat waiting with her baggage
to join the merry band of sixteen that
were due to arrive in a few minutes.
i Hearing the sound of running steps,
she turned around quickly just as a
i little fellow bobbed up in front of her.
j "Miss Caverly, do please come in a
I hurry ; Mrs. Jackson is very sick."
Julia did not storp to think of her own
enjoyment for an Instant. The mes
: sage was unfolded to her mother, and
she expressed her Intention of leav
ing immediately to see the sick old
; lady. Mrs. Caverly protested with her
daughter in vain, arguing that she,
herself, would tend to the invalid's
wants, and not to sacrifice her trip for
the sake of being obstinate. Finally
Julia overruled all her mother's ob
jections. That evening as Julia was returning
home, after spending the day nursing
her loved patient, her heart felt rath
er heavy, but as soon as she felt any
pangs of regret she would begin to
hum a popular air and hasten her
steps homeward. Mrs. Caverly felt
exceedingly proud of her generous
hearted daughter that evening as she
listened to her relating how Mrs. Jack
son was resting very comfortably now,
and that she would never forgive her
self if she had neglected to respond
to her pitiable appeal. Feeling quite
fatigued, Julia sank into a lounging
chair and soon fell fast asleep.
Creeping cautiously behind her chair,
her father placed his hands gently
over her eyes, while her mother, near
by, laughingly said : "Wake up. Julia,
dear, and guess who your bllndf older
Is." "None other than my own dear
daddy." exclained the excited glrL
"Are you glad to. see me, Julia, dear?"
coaxingly asked her father. To . re?
assure him of her sincere affection,
Julia gave him a hug and a kiss. Her
father chuckled with delight as he con
tinued: "That was certainly a huge
joke to send yon that . letter yester
day, but I wanted to completely , sur
prise you by paying a full week's tls
tt." "Daddy, you surely,, are "a, fine
roguf. You can thank Mrs. Jackson,
however, for seeing, me here today.
Why, I would be sailing far out on the
water ;by, this time, only her tempor
ary sick spell "detained me. But oh! '"
Daddy; you old -dear, I .would gladly .'
cjwmuse nay pleasure ,inp just to.. DC
with you." . ''
