Do you think that's so, Uncle Dan?" Uncle Dan replied: "I have a friend who employs hundreds of young men. He always gives boys having had military training the preference; he says It pays to do so. He finds they are more alert more prompt, more courteous; they know how to carry out orders; they are quicker to think and to act than those without training.

As evidence tho, of our need of a warehouse and loose leaf market here, the tobacco sold by the farmers of this county by private sale has brought them from 84 to 86 less per hundred than on the warehouse floor. Our people are losing very heav-il- y by not having a home market.

That one was that Austrian court should come down into Servia and try the murderer of that Prince. Servia offered to leave it with The Hague or to try the man and punish him according as she saw fit.

Germany and Austria would, have you so. But this was not the cause of this great conflict. It was only an excuse. Germany for years had been planning and preparing for this struggle which you see now being enacted upon the battle fields of the world. You who have studied history know it to be a fact, that during n the war, the German fleet was not very friendly toward the American Armada. And in connection with Admiral Dewey later, the German Admiral said within about fifteen years Germany will begin a great war. He also said Germany would be fighting America. That Admiral must have known something of the affairs of Germany. He must have known something of the plans and intentions of -- Germany since, heumissed the beginning of be-lie- ve out a cause, this is the war. I do M. Tutt G. R.

The government pays him a salary of $7,500 a year. He would be just as well pleased to have no salary at all. As a fireman and engineer he toiled for many years over the hot furnace and boiler of a C. B. & Q. railroad engine. Small wages were paid in those days. One Saturday afternoon a boy in uniform came up to Chicago from Camp Grant, on leave. It may be that he was your boy I do not know. He was a stranger in Chicago. He went to a movie show and then he walked the streets searching, for something, for anything to relieve the gnawing ache of the homesickness In his heart. He could not enter a saloon and to drink if he had so desired, for he was in uniform; but there were other, more alluring, deadlier forms of vice that were not denied him. They offered him human companionship and a substitute for love however sordid and mercenary a substitute it might be. was'a handsome, He stood on a street corner and watched thousands pass, and never in all his life before had he felt so alone and lonely. Then a woman accosted him.

It is a magnificent record, and exactly what one would have expected from a country which sent Its fishing ships to help In the destruction of the great armada. It was in 1583 that Sir Humphrey Gilbert took possession of the Island in the name of his "most gracious lady, Queen Elizabeth;" it was only five years later that La Feliclsslma Armada left Corunna for English waters, so that Newfoundland had an early opportunity of establishing a tradition for gallantry which Newfoundlanders are so splendidly vindicating in the present war.

The boy thought it quite the most beautiful place he had ever seen. The woman called a young girl down from an upper floor. "This is my daughter," she said, as she introduced the boy, "and I want you to come in here now and meet my husband. Our only son is in France. Thera is nothing that we can do that we would not do for any boy who wears that uniform. The French mothers have been good to my boy, so, if for no other reason, I could not do less than be good to the boys of my own country." They kept him for dinner that night, and all night and all day Sunday until his train left for Rockford. He went to the movies with them, and to church, and for an automobile ride, and now he goes there whenever he is on leave. . Suppose another sort of woman had accosted him? and may be he was your boy. You can do the same for some other boy in uniform. You can open your home to him. You can save him for his country as surely as that other woman saved the boy in Chicago. And you can send him on to France with a realization, based on your actions rather than upon words, that all America honors "the sacred cloth" in which he marches forth to battle, and perhaps to die, for you and yours and for me and mine. Association with these boys will elevate you and your daughters as much as it will the boys, for while itkeeps them from evil, it will inspire you with the high ideals which dominate the men of the National army. If you place the tip of your finger on a map of the world and run it along the equator, writes "An Australian Officer" in the "Wide "World, you will discover the Island of Nauru. This pinpoint of an island is perhaps the richest spot on earth, being composed almost entirely of phosphate, of which it is said there is $930,000,000 worth actually In sight. Prior to the ar the Germans had wireerected an Immense less station on this island, the lofty mast of which Is visible a couple of hours before one sights the land from a steamer. Very soon after the struggle commenced the British authorities "rushed" the place In order to silence the voice of the great station. On the near approach of our warships the Huns in charge tried to render the station useless to us by hiding all the essential parts in a big cave, the existence of which was a secret. When the station had been thoroughly dismantled and all parts stowed away in their subterranean hiding place the mouth of the cave was closed and hidden with rubbish. Alas for the Germans ! An old black dog had been an interested onlooker. When the British looked for the wireless the dog joined the side of the victorious party and led our boys to the concealed mouth of the cave, where she commenced to dig. There were cute fellows looking on, and the excited animal was soon assisted by a band of helpers who were missing nothing. They soon made the earth and rocks fly, uncovered the cave big enough to hold a platoon and, to their huge delight, located the missing parts. As a result In a few hours the British were in communication with their warships. high-power Asphalt, Gravel, Rubber, Galvanized and Painted. lso Ellwoud and American Fenced HOOFING Steel Fence Posts OEHLEP BROS. s CO.
