He was a bachelor and lived alone in his own home with farm attached. He was missed and friends visiting the 'dwelling found him with his head and body, lying on his bed and his feet stretched on the floor. Dr. C. M. Russell, who is the coroner of the county, went to the scene, in company with Mr. Walker Bryant, and the doctor decided that he died from natural causes. The deceased was a very quiet citizen and was liked by all who knew him. Quite a number of neighbors, relatives and friends attended the burying. son-in-la- well-know- James-townth- Death of an Estimable woman. Monday night of last week Mrs. Mary Willis, who was the beloved companion of H. P. Willis, died at her home hear Joppa, this county. She was sick about one month, and was seventy-on- e or two years old when the end came. She was a daughter of Mr. and Mrs T. P. Jeffries, who proceeded her to the grave a number of years ago. The deceased was a fine Christian woman and had been a devoted member of the 'ZIon Baptist Church for many years. She was a kind and obliging woman and will be greatly missed, not only by the husband and children, but by the entire neighborhood. It is hard to part from a devoted wife and loving mother, but the surviving members of the family should console themselves, as she was prepared to enter a better world. The funeral services were held at the home Wednesday morning at 10 o'clock, conducted by her pastor, Rev. O. P. Bush, assisted by her life long friend, Eld. Z. T. Williams, both ministers paying high tribute to her Christian character and the influence she wielded among her neighbors and friends. Besides her husband, she leaves, to our knowledge, two daughters, Mrs. Theodore Powell and Miss Estelle Willis, the "latter being a one teacher in the LIndsey-Wilsoson,Mr. C. E. Willis. She was also an aunt of Messrs. Horace and T. E. Jeffries, Mr. C. G. Jeffries Miss Mol-ll- e Jeffries and Mrs. Pinkie Davis, of this place, all of whom held her in affectionate esteem.

Cam- - e. to-day- 's - - Nation-wid- e Food Conservation Campaign Under Direction of Food Administrator, October 28th, November 4th, 1917. The work of organizing Adair county is proceeding nicely. The teacher are cooperating with the County Chairman and all signs point to a successful campaign. We want to urge that every housekeeper sign the pledge card at her earliest opportunity and thus become a member of the United States Food Administration. President Wilson has said that the one important factor in the winning-othe war, is, "use our food with com- -i monse'nse." This war will be wont not on the battle-field- s of Europe but on the farms and in the homes of the people of America. To this end we ask that each housekeeper sign the pledge card which is only a promise to assist in the economical conservation of food as far as circumstances of each will permit. The Teachers of the County are asked to send the signed cards to the County Chairman by November 1st. if possible but in no event later than November 4oh. Mrs. A. H.

Up to this writing the third quota of about 60 of our boys has been sent to the training camp at Louisville. We extend to those that have gone and the ones to follow, our heartiest best wishes, both for their safe return and their heroic deeds at the front if ever they go. The world's annals has not and perhaps never will again furnish a greater parallel than will America in this great war whose only mission is to blot out forever those bitter pools in which "justice perishes and divine "reason" is overthrown. In making this statement, we have no bricks to cast at Grant's veterans at the Wilderness of Gettysburg, nor at "Old Pap" Thomas at Ghickamauga, nor Sherman from sea to sea. They stamped out a wrong, but we have yet to make the world safe for liberty to make the world's people be in spirit and truth a band of brothers, the wrongs of one the concern of all. We .have reached a time in the history of the world, when we must go forward, or we will go backward we must press on to grander heights, to greater glories, or see the laurels already won turn to ashes on our brow. There may be months of mourning and days of agony, but however dark the night, hope a poising eagle will ever burn above the unrisen morrow- - Trials we will have and tribulations sore, but while God reigns and the human race endures, this Nation, born of our father's blood and sanctified by our mother's tears, shall not pass away. Most of the farmers are done sowing wheat and are now engaged in making good sweet sister, Mrs. S. B. Collins, and ,her old friend, Mrs. Martitia Carter, who have passed their 69th and were 75th also present to add to the farther exercises of the occasion. As the November election is drawing near and there seems to be dissatisfaction in the ranks of some of the parties, it is up to g man'to look every more to the sobriety, character and qualification of the man, than to the political party. It matters not whether a candidate is Republican, Democrat, Progressive, Prohibitionist etc., so he is worthy of the office which he seeks at the. hands of the voters. In tHe State and National affairs, we consider the party, but in the county it is a different proposition. Men that will stick up their hands and swea'r by Almighty God that they will not use money or any illegal means, then break their oath and are not worthy to be at the head of the county government. Now we are not accusing any one, for we don't honestly believe there is a man in Russell county possessing that low a character, but the like has and will be done, until the better element of people put their feet on snrVi nnrl sav nnf Mrs. Dora Barger and little son, Roy, who spent a month visiting in Louisville, have returned home. The school at this place is pronicely. The misses gressing Humble are fine teachers. Work on the road between this place and Jamestown is progressing nicely. It will be a good section of road when completed. At about 4 o'clock on the afternoon of the 8th, fire broke out at Jamestown, destroying the hardware store owned by B. D. McFarland, gasoline engine, grist mill and planing mill, owned by J. H. Phelps. Mr. McFarland was away from home, but the citizens and school boys opened the doors and carried the entire stock of goods to the mileposfe-respectivel- y, right-thinkinf camp unhesitatingly and as ono man, prated the site, the town and tlm people. All join in saying they a re, sure we will be delighted with new surroundings and environments. The site of Camp Shelby, home of Ky., W. Ya , and Ind., National Guards, is situated on or near high ridge, 325 feet above sea level, the location being characterized by army experts as unsurpassed. The soil is of a sandy nature and drilling and maneuvering under the best conditions can continue very soon after the hardest of rain. The ground is rolling, beautiful from scenic standpoint and perfect for practical purpose from a military stand point Army men have stated that the typograph is ideal for target ranges. The site is touched by three railroads lines and gravel roads to it afford excellent transportation facilities for soldiers and visitors. The site is large enough to accommadate 1,000,000. Water supply is from, artesian wells, pure and cold. Mosquitoes are few and there is nothing to indicate the presence of malaria. is the geographical and trade center of the Yellow pine district of south Mississippi. The combined output of the many lumber manufacturing plants within a radius of thirty miles of the city is greater than from any similar areas in the world. The 'cut over" land of this district is rapidly being developed agriculturally and .have shown great fertility and capacity for diversification of crops. The climate is ideal for raising cattle all the year The city has a population of 15,000, an abundance of pure artesian water, well paved streets, electric lights, electric cars, a modern Y. M. C. A. building, good hotels, large banking houses, and a happy and prosperous citizenship and invites progressives intelligent and energetic people to share her opportunities The State has a total land surface of acres. In cultivation 20,000,-0044 Agricultural High schools, 5 State institutions for higher education, several supporting hospitals. Annual exports $200,000 shrimp and oysters, $50,000,000 of lumber, 883,000,-00- 0 cattle, syrup 32,000,000 and oats. The growing corn crop is estimated at 30,000,000 bushels more than the record of the past. She ranks third in the lumber production of the U. S. On the authority of the Commissioner of Agriculture this year's cotton crop bids fair to exceed the government estimate 1,200,000 bales. At the prevailing prices the cotton and seed will readily bring approximately $200,000,000. Should this not fall by the wayside, perhaps 1 will write again. Yours truly, Clarence Marshall.'

Commerce favoring the Constitutional Amendment relating to the purchase of telephone lines are meeting with favor throughout the state. Among other papers which have endorsed this action editorially is the Frankfort State Journal, which recently published the following editorial: "Amend The Constitution "The action of the Chamber of Commerce, in pledging its efforts to the adoption of the Constitutional Amendment relating to the purchase of telephone lines, and in calling upon other commercial' bodies to support it, is both wise and timely. "Two telephone lines in the same community, each contending for subscribers, is a nuisance an expensive nuisance to the public, and has been too long tolerated. "When the busy merchant, farmer or professional man takes up his telephone, he wants to talk and talk quickly; and to be told that the party sought has "the other line" naturally stirs his resentment Two exchanges in the same town mean that the business and professional man must maintain both, and this he should not be required to do.

You can't ask much more of placid nature than has been expended on the gulf littoral between New Orleans and Pensacola. There are pine woods, forests, of live oaks, all moss hung and mysterious, long stretches of winding, shaded roads woodland paths, quainfcsouthern hamlets and modern resorts teeming with gayety and active life; lovely retreats where you can swing in a hammock all day and drowse in the narcotic air. And there is the sparkling water, the beach, the surf, boating, fishing anything and everything that calls from the salt waterside. Going south on the Louisville & Nashville Railroad, after you leave Mobile, it is impossible to escape the infection of joyous living, even if you wanted to do that At every stop throngs of people are going and coming youth and age alike, getting on or off the trains. Laughter and breezy, sunny, fragrant air greet you. It is moreover a place of sane, natural outdoor joys in surroundings of homely comfort or of luxurious ease, whichever you prefer. It is a locality of ancient and honorable traditions and the natives are descended from holders of the soil since the first days of the white settler. They make you welcome with a stately, southern hospitality, and have put at your disposal the best their home land affords. Every reancestral oaks and grown sort and every old plantation home is shaded by age-ol- d with trailing vines, roses and perennials; and they all look out over the gulf over waters, at the dancing waves, the scudding sails, the beach and the surf. If you can't find happiness down there in the golden sunshine and among the countless diversions and attractions of that playground, don't go south in the winter expecting to find your "Promised land," for you'll have only your troable for your pains. No choicer spot exhists and greater comfort is not to be found. The winter climate is ideal, not uncomfortably warm, but moderate and bracing, putting snap and ginger into the system. Touring along the Gulf Coast is one of the ways travelers take to find their own particular choice and for this purpose the train service of the Louisville & Nashville Railroad is convenient. You can stop everywhere, beginning at Mobile, and stay a few hour, a few days or as long as you wish. It is a fascinating vagabondage that will bring you eventually to the place of your ultimate desire. You can, also, if you choose, ship your motor car to Mobile and go in for regular touring along the gulf the roads are all good and the country is fascinating In the ex- tria's Oct. 15, Auslosses in killed, wounded Take Notice: Do you wish to enjoy the satisfaction of knowing that the Tombstone or Monument you erect as a final tribute to the one you loved, and whose memory you wish to pass down to posterity, will not only be a fitting and beautiful memorial, but will also endure through ages to come?

Then, too, they had to borrow money for their planting. Now their crops are in, and at the present high price of foodstuffs they Bhould have a large sum of money in their hands.

It Is so clear that the farmer, of all persons, should make himself the greatest buying class In the world. If all the other classes in the United States should lie down and refuse to buy, the fanners should rally to the flag and huy, huy, buy these bonds as long as they had a cent to invest I do not wish to appeal to farmers to buy bonds because they are good investments. They are good investments, as any good business man can see. They are safety itself. Nothing can ever throw doubt on them as investments. Many farmers are holding lands which do not pay them more than-to 3 per cent after the rents, are collected, the repairs kept up, insurance paid and taxes settled. If all the actual- - and retired farmers in the United States would put in Liberty Bonds the money they could get for lands which pay them less than the Liberty Bonds will pay, they alone could buy all the bonds to be Issued. Liberty Bonds pay 4 per cent They are the best security for loans at the banks when the owner wants a loan. They are cheaper to carry than the land. A man may buy Liberty Bonds and forget about them except to collect the Interest every sis months. But that is not the main reason why we should buy, and buy, and keep on buying as long as any are offered. The farmer should buy Liberty Bonds because the value of his farm, the chance to make a peaceful American living, the very right to an independent life is staked on this war. The German empire threatens the world. It seeks to take from us the very thing that makes our farms valuable. "What is the value of a farm, anyhow, except the privilege of living a free American life on a particular piece of land? Take that away, and your farm becomes a thing which Is worthless. Germany is out to conquer the world. Germany still has the chance to crush Russia, France, Italy and Great Britain. If she crushes them, she crushes us; for we are in the war until the finish. If Germany wins, our lands will at once be mortgaged for all the terrible struggle which will then be upon us to save ourselves from invasion. She will demand of lis that we pay her indemnities running into the tens and perhaps hundreds of billions of dollars. All these indemnities, if Germany could defeat us, and the fight against them in case we alone are able to defeat her, will be a mortgage on every acre of farm land in the United States. Germany is half licked now. We have fighting with us the mightiest nations of the world. If Tve cannot whip her with their help what will a farm be worth in the United States when we face her alone? Buy honds, farmers, and help make the world afe for our kind of life the life of democracy. Let us strike for freedom as did ther fanners of New England at Lexington and Concord, and the farmers of the South at King's Mountain. Let us finish Germany now, while we have help. Let it never he said that the farmers of the United States refused their money while our. young men are giving their lives for the holiest cause ever fought for. Let us strike for our altars and our fires and forthefarms we love. All these are at stake in this the greatest of all wars. Don't let your dollars be slackers. -2 The Women's Liberty Loan committee of the Eighth Federal Reserve District held its first meeting in its headquarters on the fourteenth floor of the Boatman's Bank Building in St Louis. Miss Florence J. Wade, chairman of the Eighth Federal Reserve District, presided. Miss Wade and Mrs. Philip N. Moore, chairman of the Women's Committee of Missouri, attended a conference of the National Women's Liberty Loan Organization Committee, Washington, D. C. Mrs. William G. McAdoo is chairman of this committee. With the approval of this conference, Dr. Anna Howard Shaw Bent out a letter to every Red Cross organization, Council of Defense, and Food Conservation Committee, urging them that they have their members devote the entire month of October to the disposing of the Liberty Loan. Dr. Shaw argued that It was essential that the war be financed above all other activities and urged that all women engaged in patriotic, civic, religious, educational and social work devote all of their energy and time to this great and essential Move- 1" PV Jx?lL j?r w$tj?pSi jBPSiiinMp "J SLAVE OR FREEMAN, CHOOSE Secretary Wilson Points That With Democracy's Downfall Common.

All of the county chairmen of Illinois also met in St Louis Saturday afternoon and received instructions from their State Chairman, Mrs. Howard T. Willson, and District Chairman, Miss Florence J.

Moore, HELP SOUND THE TOCSIN OF LIBERTY AROUND THE WORLD I reaus and societies are and good results are expected. Albert R. Mann, dean of the New Fork College of Agriculture, is one of those who have been active in this work. Speaking of the loan and the farmers' share in it, he said: "When liberty came to America the farmer helped to brings it He bore the gun, he contributed unsparingly of his substance, he fed the armies., In the present struggle for universal, liberty, I am sure that he will do no less. He has already made splendid .response to the demand for greater food production. I look with confidence on his generous contribution to the Liberty Loan. "The first loan largely overlooked the farmer the efforts were concentrated in the cities. The second campaign should give every opportunity for farmers as individuals and in their organizations to support the government in its financial program. It is the highest expression of Americanism that all the people should help carry the common load in this critical hour." ILLINOIS WOMAN STARTS WITH $60,000 BOND SALE The first subscription secured by the Woman's Liberty Loan Organization of the Eighth Federal Reserve District was through Mrs. Howard T. Willson of Virden, state chairman of Illinois, for $60,000. Mrs. Willson has organized Southern Illinois thoroughly and is doing effective work. f Mrs. E. E. Schnepp is chairman of the Liberty Loan Organization of the Twenty-seconCongressional District of Illinois. She has organized her district into teams of five each and is securing effective results. Mrs. Willson compiled data for a folder which her workers are distributing broadcast among the men of Illinois. The cover of the folder bears the following: d Liberty Loan Bends What They Are and How Obtained The bonds of the second issue of the Liberty Loan are to be issued under the act of Congress approved by the president September 24, 1917. ORGANIZED FORCES JOIN LIBERTY BOND CAMPAIGN The all women's organizations doing war relief work. Mrs. B. F. Bush, state president of the Women's National Council of Defense, who has organized 106 of the 114 counties in Missouri effectively, and has a live working organization In each one of these counties and 375 towns through the state, placed this working force at the disposal of the Liberty Loan Organization. Mrs. Ernest Stix of the St Louis Equal Suffrage League repudiated the statement recently made by Mrs. O. H. Havemeyer at a meetine of the Woman's Party at Baltimore, and de clared that the Woman's Party did not represent the National Woman's Suffrage League, that suffragists were working for Liberty Loan Bonds and doing other war relief work. The Equal Suffrage Leasue of St Louis has an organization in each of tne 20 wares ana 500 precincts with an efficient chairman in each ward and precinct. This force is now at work in disposing of the Liberty Loan Bonds in St Louis. women speakers will Join forces with the men and speak in tht motion picture houses and other places for four mjn-ute- s on the Liberty Bond during ho rest of the campaign. "Four-Minute" of the Liberty Loan Organization is working under the able direction of Mrs, John H. Holliday as chairman. Mrs. Holliday has the of St Louis women's committee "Fotfr-Minut- e" will be ?3,000,000.000 or more; the right Is reserved to allot bonds f of the oversubextent of is subscribed the right is reserved to issue $1,000,000,000 more than the $3,000,000,000. The bonds will be offered for sale on October 1, 1917, and subscriptions will be received until the close of the' business day of October 27. The bonds will bear date N ember 15. ,1917, and will mature 'November 15, 1942. But the Gove.ment reserves the right to call in and pay the bonds in full, with accrued Interest, any time after 10 years after their date. It is believed that the second Liberty Loan, like the first issue of Liberty Loan Bonds, will Jbe heavily oversubscribed, but no matter how largely oversubscribed, the policy of distributing, these bonds as widely as possible among the people of the country will be followed, and every subscriber to an amount not greater than $1,000 is sure to receive the bond or bonds subscribed for. Subscribers to larger amounts will receive an allotment based on the amount of the bond issue' and its proportion to the amount of subscription. What proportion- of their subscription they will obtain will not be known until all subscriptions are in. The main differences between the bonds of the first iBSUe and the bonds of the second issue of the Liberty Loan are (1) they run for only 25 years instead of 30, and may be redeemed by the Government in 10 years after date instead of 15; (2) they bear 4 per cent interest instead of 3 per cent; (3) they are liable to surtaxes (except as to the inand taxes and excess-profit- s terest on $5,000 in the hands of any holder); (4) allotment may be made to the extent of half of the oversubscription; and (5) the installment plan of payment is slightly different. The bonds are convertible gold bonds and bear 4 per cont annual interest, the interest being payable semiannually on May 15 and November 15 of each year. The bonds are exempt, botb as to principal and interest, from all taxation now or hereafter imposed by the United States, any state, or any other possessions of the United States or by any, local taxing authority, except (a) estate or Inheritance taxes, and (b) graduated additional income taxes, commonly known as surtaxes, and excess-profit- s taxes now or hereafter imposed. They and are not liable to the ordinary Federal income tax. The Interest on an amount of bonds the principal of which does not exceed $5,000, owned by any Individual, partnership, association or corporation, are exempted from the taxes provided for in clause of the issue will be offered, and in excess of that amount to the scription. That is, if $5,000,000,000 $3,000,000,000 The amount one-hal- - war-profi- ts "YOU ARE NOT EXEMPTED FROM SERVICE BECAUSE YOU CANNOT WEAR A UNIFORM. BUY A LIBERTY BOND. HELP EQUIP THE MAN WHO FIGHTS FOR YOU. BUY YOUR BONDS FROM YOUR LOCAL WOMAN'S LIBERTY LOAN COMMITTEE." The inside of the circular contains the following: "What equipment will you furnish your brother who has taken your place in the trenches? "A $50 bond will supply four months' sustenance in field for one man. "A $100 bond will supply 200 pounds smokeless powder. "A $200 bond will supply, complete war-profi- ts uniform and outfit for four navy men. "A $500 bond will supply 180 gas masks. "A $1,000 bond will supply gasoline enough to drive a submarine 2,000 miles. "A $2,000 bond will supply 520 Wilson points out that "the workers have more at stake in this great conflict than any others, because it is only in a democracy that the common people can come into their own." Secretary Wilson's statement is as follows: To the of the United States: The great European war in which we are now involved came to the people of the Western Hemisphere as a terrible shock, and to no portion of tho people did it come as a greater shock than to the wage earners of the United States. They believed in and wanted international peace, but they wanted it on a basis of international justice which would insure the right of our people to govern themselves. When the Imperial German Government undertook to destroy the lives of our people and to impose a rule of conduct upon us without our consent in places under the jurisdiction of the United States Government, there was no course left but to resist The workers have more at stake in this conflict than any others, because it is only in a democracy that the common people can come into their own. The great privilege is not given to all of us to serve our country on the battlefield or in the trenches, but there are other ways In which we can serve and assist those who are privileged to carry our flag on the battlefields of Europe. The Impulse of sacrifice for the common good is sending the youth of our country into the trenches in defense of liberty, humanity and democracy. To those of us who must of necessity remain at home to till thq soil, harvest the crops, man the factories, mines and mills, the way is open1 for additional service. We, too, must make sacrifices. The men who go forth to do battle in the field must be eoolpped and sustained. Funds must bo forthcoming to furnish the food, the firearms and other supplies for the fighting forces of the nation. I am reminded of the fable of a great drought when the crops were wasting for the want of water, and one little raindrop said to another in the clouds, "I would like to go down to the relief of the fanner and his perishing crops, but I am bo little it would be useless." And another little raindrop replied, "It would be useless for you to go .down alone, but let us all go down and our combined effort will bring the needed relief." And so it Is with the workers. The funds each has available Is but a drop, but all of the drops together can make a shower of funds that will furnish the needed supplies, bring joy to the hearts of the boys at the front and consternation to our enemies.

The registered bonds will be registered at the Treasury in the names of their owners and will be of the denominations of $50, ?100, $500, $1,000, $5,000, $10,000 and $100,000. Checks for the Interest on these bonds will be, mailed from the Treasury to the owners" each semlajmual-interes- t date. The coupon bonds will be payable to bearer and will have coupons attached f.or the interest They will be ia denominations of $50, $100, $500, $1,000, $5,000 and $10,000. The coupons can be cashed like a Government check at any bank. The coupon bonds of this loan will have only four coupons attached, representing the semiannual interest for two years. Between November 15, 1919, and May 15, 1920, the holders of coupon bon,ds must exchange their bonds for new bonds haying full sets of coupons-Thes- e temporary bonds are Issued because the work of engraving gp many bonds with so large a number of coupons attached cannot be completed within a reasonable time for delivery.

These applications must reach the Treasury Department, a Federal Reserve bank or branch thereof, or some incorporated or trust company in the United States, on or before the close of business October 27, 1917. Practically every bank in the United States will willingly receive these applications and handle the whole transaction of the purchase of bonds for any aibscriber. A purchaser may pay in full ior his bonds at the time of making his application or, if he' so preiers, he can take advantage of the installment plan and pay 2 per cent on application, 18 per cent on November 15, 1917, 40 per cent on December 15, 1917, and the remaining 40 per cent on January 15, 1918. Although so far as the Government 13 concerned the purchase price for the bends must he paid as above, nearly every bank in the country will make arrajagements by which Liberty Loan Bonds can be paid on an 'installment plan providing for weekly or monthly payments, and a groat many employers will make the same arrangements for their employes Payment can, be made to the Treasury Department or tetany one of tho Federal Reserve banks, but pnjjcSifcers are vtftei to i&ike their banks or' other agencies with whom they placed payments .to t their subscriptions. -- (b) above. shells to destroy submarines." WOMEN OF 7 STATES READY FOR BIG LIBERTY LOAN DRIVE "Carry the gospel of the Liberty Loan Bond to every woman of your state and have them In turn spread it broadcast," was the appeal made In St. Louis to the state chairmen of the Women's Liberty Loan Organization of the Eighth Federal Reserve District by W.

The meeting was held at the headquarters, 1419 Boatman's Bank building, and was presided over by Miss Florence Wade, chairman of the women's committee.

Bascom, secretary and treasurer of the Broderick & Bascom Rope Co., St Louis, whose company has bought $250,000 of the second series of the Liberty Loan, gives excellent reasons for investing in the bonds. Mr. Bascom is a successful business man, and while he urges investment in Liberty Bonds as a patriotic duty, he sees the advantage from a business standpoint of buying the bonds. Investing surplus earnings In Liberty Bonds, Mr. Bascom says, is better than paying dividends. The reat corporations are accumulating funds to meet Increased taxes and value depreciation. What better investment for these funds and other reserve funds than Government bonds the safest In the world? Individually Mr. Bascom Is setting a good example to small investors. He says that the Eastern capitalists are investing in Liberty Bonds and he has always found it wise to follow their example. The first rule for small investors is to follow the advice or example of those experts who know how to Invest money to best advantage. Men who have made and are making money are the beat guides in money Bavinj; and money making. Small investors cannot do better than follow the leadership of the big investors and the capable business men at the head of successful corporations. Buy Liberty Bonds.

It always pays to grade farm products carefully before marketing them. This year a great many small crops of potatoes were grown in the South and to a large extent local demands for potatoes will be supplied out of these crop3. In too many cases the sellers seem to feel that they must feel that they must put every potato, no matter how small and mean, in the basket. It is absolutely foolish to think that anythihg is gained by this practice. Invariable the well graded potatoes sell better than ungraded, and one might as well keep the little potatoes at home to feed. Products sell to a large degree, upon appearances, and certainly ungraded potatoes make about as poor an appearance as can be made. Potatoes do not have to be large to sell well, but these ought to be uniform in size. If you have ten baskets of potatoes to sell, make three or four grades of them, putting all the big ones together, all the medium sized together and all below average size to- The War Department has declined to include tobacco in the list of articles which are to make up the war rations of the fighting forces of America, on the ground that all of the men enlisted do not use tobacco. Strong pressure will be made to have the department change its ruling and issue tobacco with the food rations, as reports coming from the European battle fronts indicate that the men of the allied nations consider tobacco necessary for their comfort while engaged in a service which entails many hardships. .While there may be some reason for not issuing a tobacco ration to enlisted men who are not users of tobacco, it seems warfare causes that present-daa demand for something of the sort from a great majority of the fighting forces, and American soldiers should be supplied with that which when smoked exercises a cheering and comforting influence. y Holding Wheat.
