POLK COUNTY RED CROSS..
The whole American people will be j
mviiea in the week preceding Christ
mas to enroll as members of Amer
ican: Red Crosse Polk county should
at least have a thousand members. If
the present four hundred and fifty
eight all renew their memberships we
will have to do some hustling to reach
that thousand mark. But we can
reach it and we must.
It is confidently believed that fhpvp
need be n& further campaigns for the
Kea cross runds, but, instead, the an
nual roll call will constitute the mon
ey foundation for the Red Cross.
The beneficent work of the Ameri
can Red Cross is to go forward on a
great scale not alone for purposes
of relief of war, but as an agency of
peace and permanent human service.
Remember all the Red Cross has done
for. you and your boys. Then see if
you cannot secure three new member
ships. Every one must help in the
campaign for loyal members.
Mrs. Lindsey asks that att knitted
articles be turned in by the end of the
campaign if possible.
The Southern division, comprising
North and South Carolina, Georgia,
Florida and Tennessee must furnish
forty thousand refugee garments in
the next six weeks. All sewers' are
asked to hold themselves in readiness
to work as soon as called upon.

fiUZES FOR 10 BEST
EARS OF CORN.
This Bible promise has been fulfill
ed in the life of our neighbor and
friend, Mrs. Charles Ferris.
Born to beauty, luxury and devo
tion, she swung the whole circle to
old age, suffering, and as far as the
ordinary ties of life are concerned to
absolute loneliness, but to the last
hour when she said "I am dying"
though she could not turn her body in
bed, she was giving thanks for the
power to work for others, in some
cases, to warn of sin, in others to
comfort under affliction in others to
give material relief.
Almost at the last she bethought
her of pieces of antique china, gold
and silver. These she promptly turn,
ed over to a friend to be sold for the
benefit of Missions.
A few days before she had parted i
with her beautiful piano for less than
half its value (Mr. Russell who had
just tuned it pronounces it worth as it
stands one thousand dollars), taking
great pleasure in what she could do
with the money, and in the thought
that her old friends in the Lanier
Club would enjoy its sweet tones.
Her taking leave of it partook of
the finality which in these latter days
marked all her actions. Saying to
Mr. Rowell, who was superintending
its transfer, "I shall not hear it again,
I wish you Would play for me."
While Edward Streadwick and his
force waited the notes of a selection
which she loved floated up to her.
At once she turned to other
-tbouchts and occupations.
We are apt to think in these days
of the newly developed business wo
men, the driving club woman, the au
tomobile driver that the type of the
remote saintly woman has ceased to
exist. Mrs. Ferris is a proof that she
will not fade from the earth, while
high thinking, noble living and vital
faith have their place here below.

If we were to listen to a large num
ber of Americans regarding the mak
ing of peace terms withGermany and
her allies we would lose all the fruits
of our victory. The great trouble
with the German nation is that it does
not yet acknowledge its defeat, or the
enormity of thg crime it has commit
ted against civilization. So well has
the German propogandist played his
hand in the past, and for that matter
is still busy, that a large number of
our people have become befuddled
over the situation and are allowing
sympathy to get the better of their
For a nation to act as Germany has,
and to escape punishment can hardly
be thought of by the allied powers.
The peace conference at Versailles
will soon be held, and the greatest
questions ever brought before civi
lized nations will confront thp allips.
It is time that our people should lav
aside all sentiment and look at the.
matter in its true light.
No one can blame Germany for
wanting to escape with as light pun
ishment as possible, still at the same
time the aliles should not allow that
une or talk to influence them in a
peace settlement. The hand of the
Hun Junker is plainly seen in everv
move that is made in Germany. All
this talk about revolution is bosh, for
we see at the head of the revolution
ists such men as Hindenburg and his
uk, patiently awaiting the time until
the people are divided into so many
groups as to make an agreement im
possible, then will the ex-Kaiser and
his crowd appear on the scene and
again take control of the situation.
There is only one way to prevent
this, and that "is to exact such terms
of Germany as to make her powerless
as aworid iactor for .hfe nextcen-
cury. j.hat js going to be the only
way to make her see herself as others
see her. Germany is money mad, and
the only penalty that she can under
stand and have the desired effect is to
assess such indemnities against her as
to keep her busy for the next century
paying off this burden. The burden
must be so heavy as not to be misun
derstood by the people of that be
nighted country. All signs of kind-
