Mrs. Jehnson Urses Clubs to Form War Sav
in Secieties. Governor Seeds faase.
Mrs. Kate Burr Johnson bl
Raleigh, piesident of the North
Carolina Federation of Woman's
Clubs, writes the club women of
the State to offer their services to
. the State and to the goverument
particularly in the work of organizing-
war savings societies.
Beware of spring's temptations,
purchase only those things which
are absolutely necessary and buy
war savings stamps instead, is
the timelj7 advice Mrs. Johnson
is giving the 8,000 club women
represented in the federation.
Her letter to them reads:
'I am r calling upon the club
women of North Carolina to de
vote themselves to the work of
the war saving stamps campaign
with the same enthusiasm and
patriotic eagerness to serve that
has marked their interest in ali
war work of theTpast; The tirsi
thing for any ciub woman to do
is to buy war sayings and thrift
stamps for you cannot convince
others of the necessity of buying,
nor of the siucerety of your pur
pose until you, yourself, are the
o vners of stamps. Spring with
its many temptations, which
every woman knows of which
every shop widow will soon be
full, is here. Purchase 6ny those
things which are absolutely nec
essary and buy thrift stamps in
stead, remembering that while
we are making personal sacrifice
and doing without the unessen
tial things of life, our men and
boys are giving up their lives in
ka foreign land that the women
and children of America may be
saf .
"Every federated club in the
S ate is urged to appoint a war
savings society . committee at
once, and offer its services to the
towngor city cJhariman to atist in
war savings society work in every
possible way. Make your fifteen
years of trainidg and efficiency
stand the test " of the present
crisis and feel that all you hive
done in the past has been but a
.preparation for the present and
the future.
'Through me, the Governor o f
North Carolina, T W Bicett,
. feeling that the war will not be
brought to a successful conclu
sion until our goverment is effec
tively supported by its women in
every line of patriotic effort,
sends the following message to
the women of our State:
'The allies are fighting for the
sanctity of the person of woman,
which sanctity is unknown to. the
'The allies are fighting that
motherhood may enter into its

'The allies are fighting that
the ideals of woman may live and
brighten and bless the erth.
Prussianism is the ihcarnaiion
of brute force. A gun is its god,
and its boast is that it rules with
blood and iron.
'The might of woman is her
gentleness. Love ' is her im
perial sceptre, and she would be
without power and without place
in a civilization moulded by force
and colored by fear.
I have Abrahamic faith in the
courage, the devotion and the
sacrificial spirit of the women of
North Carolina. With them to
see their duty is to do it.

A G33 j L'jgumv PrafiiaMs and an Excellent
Food For the Table. ' -
West Raleigh, Feb25. One
of the best paying crops that
can be grown this year through
out the State on every farm, in
a small way, is soybeans. Last
year many farmers learned to
appreciate the value of this crop.
In speaking of the growth of
soybeans inUnion County,
County Agent T J W Brown, in
a recent letter to C B Williams
of the Agronomy Division,
siates: 'i agree witn you m
every statement you made. Soy
1- -T
oeans are, l consider, tne very
best summer legume we can
grow. We saved quite a lot of
seed in my county, but not
enough to supply the demand.
Many farmers have remarked to
me recently ;that it is strange
that we did not learn of their
value before now.
Soybeans are well adapted to
the conditions prevailing
throughout the State. The crop
fits in well in rotations and will
usually give more material to
turn back into the soil than any
other summer growing legume.
The only reason why this crop
has n,ot been . more generally
grown heretofore is because of
the fact that it was not ' well
known. It is believed that any
one who will encourage its
growth will be doing' a public
service. Of course, soybeans
like any other crop, will not
grow satisfactorily unless the
land is well prepared, the crop
properly cultivated and the nec
essary fertilizer added on soils
that areln need of plant food.
Mr Williams states that "in a
general way, where soybeans
are grown in rows, that it will
cost from thirteen to fifteen dol
lars per acre to produce this
crop. This cost -includes the
seed, rental of land, breaking
disking, harrowing, running
rows, planting, cultivation,, and
fertilizer. The yields from this
crop under good average condi
tions should run from 20 to 6CH
bushels per' acre. Putting the
average yield to 20 bushels,
which is certainly conservative
where the crop is properly in
oculated, such a crop - will add
to the soil when plowed in, some
thing like twenty dollars worth
of nitrogen gathered from the
air. This in itself would more
than pay all expenses of produc
ing .and harvesting the seed.
During the pa,st two years . the
price of beans has varied from
two and a half to five dollars per
bushel Assuming the price of
beans to be two and va, half per
bushel they would bring to the
the farmer fifty dollars in addi
tion to the twenty dollars worth
of nitrogen which was added in
the vines that went back into
the soil. Assuming, a price of
three dollars and a half per bu
shel, whicti is about as low as
they can be bought at the pres
ent time, twenty bushels would
sell for seventy dollars in addi
tion to the twejity dollars worth
of nitrogen added to the soil.
It should be kept in mind, too,
that where,a crop of this tdnd is
grown on the soil and turned
back after harvesting the seed
there is added a large amount of
organic matter which would be
worth a great deal to many

best, so the committee decided,
and it is here given:
"To help kill 'Kultur' and

About Constipation.
Certain articles of diet tend to
check the movement of the bow
els. The most common of these
are cheese, tea and boiled milk.
On the other hand, raw fruits,

also' graham bread and who e
wheat bread promote a move
ment of the bowels. When the

however, the sure way is to take

How Protestants ars fieloi CrosHei MUst
Mr Religions Bacte.
' In a very luminous- ariicle in
which he tejls why Romanists,
today, are so free to deny eyery
matter of histbry, or of certain'
fact which was being accepted
byjthem in silence fifty years ajro.
Rev. Juan Orts Goaxales, in the
Guatemala News, for December,;
1917, shows that one reason is
Rome's gro.wing confidence in her
strength and power and the fact
that Protestants are entirely too
conservative and considerate to
be consistent.
Along this line he says:
"I ask any candid reader who
is famijiar with the writingsof
Luther, Calvin and Knox whether
he believes that those reformers
would be granted -a hearing to
day from the most influential
American Protestanf pulpits.
The writer himself, who has
raveled long and far in the
Souih and in part of the North,
ias often heard words like these;
vVhat you have tq say is true,
out you cannot say it here. Ob,
m my congregation there are so
many intermarried with Catho
lics. Oh, many of the members
of my church have Catholic cus
tomers or Catholic partners, and:
they will resent the issue and?
you will get me in trouble.' Oh
it is pitiful to have to say it, but
it is true: In many Protestant,
American puipiis- juuiner; cpuh
not preach today, because ne. wa
too plain spoken about the abuse
of Romanism: Galvinwouldlje
tiau uiptLo, ucuuusc ae was ioov
radical; Knox would be shocking,
because he was too bitter against'
relics and purgatory; even Paul;
would be warned by many of our
easy going sessions and pastors
to soften his language and, his- .
Can you imagine Luther's
reformation without his preach
ing against the abuses of Roman
ism? Can you imagine Calvin's
work without noticing his expos
ures of Romanism? Can you
imagine Knox preaching without
attacking indulgences, relics and ..
me liKer rvnu yei, American
Protestants expect to save Prot-
estism and be silent about the-:
vital issues of Protestantism. ,
Amercan Protestants call them- .
selves followers of Luther, Calvin
and Knox and sons of the Reform
ation, when they are afraid to .
speak out upon the principles of
Reformation. That inconsistent
attitude distresses me more than
the real, power of Romanism.
.t That word publici
ty' used so frequently and wisely
by President Wilson as the Only
remedy to save the country from
trusts, bribery and tyranny of
millions, is not only the best
remedy for social evils, it is 'also
the best and most efficacious..
remedy for saving the country
from the religious evils of Ro
manism. Awake! and stand for
publicity. Expose fearlessly any.
machination of Romanism wheth
er that will please or displease ,
your people. Do not forget, my
brethren, '(and I speak particu
larly to ministers) that you have
not been called to be at peace
with your congregation but to
teach them the truth as it is in
Christ Jesus." ,
No better summary of condi- '
tions has been offered of late in
so few words In the first part
of the quotation given we, find,
the reason for Rome's . , bold
and arrogant front and in the last
portion we find the advice that, ,
if followed, will as surely .breaik
the power of Rome as did Luther
when he faced death for principles
without which life would have
been a burden to him and gengtar
tions that have, followed. -
