He said that when the Kaiser went to hell he would be willing to be sent there to shovel coal around him. He was lustily cheered throughout the discourse.

BILL BRADSHAW CALLED HER --FAMILY TO 22 Million Families in the United States 4 CUPS OF WHEAT FLOUR TO THE POUND would be 22 million pounds or 112,244 barrels every week. The greatest help housekeepers can give to win the war is to make this saving and it can be done by using this recipe in place of white flour bread. THRO LIBERTY BONDS By ANNA STOKES. HR F0P1F If each family used 4 cups of flour less per week,' the saving The little town of Qedarville was not wealthy. Just an ordinary country town, but with lots of patriotism, which bubbled forth with energy at the approaching sale of Liberty Bonds, which marked the entrance of the United States Into the world war. Bill Bradshaw looked at all the preparations with a smile. He did not intend to buy Liberty Bonds. That $4,000 lying so snugly in the hank should not be disturbed. He guessed he was loyal enough without buyin bonds. Six Years Ago, Thinking She Might Die, Say3 Texas Lady, Bai 3Bns She a Well, Strong Woman and Praises Cardui Foe. h Her Recovery. Royse City, Tex.

Wheat Savings. ; ARGENTINE ARRIVALS SHORT, Meat Supply Here Considerably Etv Food Administration, , larged However, Warns Against Waste. The allies have made further and increased demands for breadstuffs, these enlarged demands being caused to some degree by shortage In arrivals from the Argentine. It Is, therefore, necessary for the U. S. Food Administration to urge a still further reduction In the consumption of bread and bread-stuffgenerally If we are to meet our export necessities. The Food Administration has Issued a statement explaining the situation in detail, particularly the reasons which lead It, for the. purpose of centering effort for the time being upon the cereal situation to relax temporarily the restrictions on meat consumption. Experience shows, this statement past says, that the consumption of bread-stuffis intimately associated with the consumption of meat. For various IBANK DEPOSITS reasons our supplies of meat for the next two or three months are consid erably enlarged, and we can supply the ' OCPLETED allies with all of the meat products s s I I The response of the public to our quests for reduced consumption of meat during the past few months has been most gratifying, and this service alone has enabled the government, during this period to provide such sup-plies as transportation to the allies permitted. The Administration also suggests that in those pjarts of the country where the old fashioned home preservation of pork is still the custom, this practice should be extended at the present time, as It will relieve the burden upon transportation to and from the packing houses and Is economically sound as saving the cost of packing operations and at the same time will provide home supplies of pork to last over the months of decreased supplies. The Food Administration desires to repeat that it does not want to give the impression that these are times when simplicity and moderation of living are not critically necessary, but that its sole desire Is to secure an adjustment between our different food supplies and meet changing conditions from time to time and to keep the public fully and frankly advised of Its position with the full confidence and reliance that whenever it becomes necessary renewed appeals for saving will met the same loyal response as 1b the re- interested and and each must, for the time, forget self and stand shoulder to shoulder in helping the government in this crisis. A war cannot be conducted without money. Less than 10,000,000 people subscribed to the first two Liberty Loans. There ought to be 30,000,000 subscribers to the Third Liberty Loan. Let us all put up a solid front of complete and determined and see to it that the present Liberty Loan Is fully and promptly subscribed.

There was some criticism at the time of the second Liberty Loan to the effect that farmers were not buying bonds as liberally as they should. Most of this criticism was unjustified, though there is here and there a slacker in the country as well as elsewhere. We are in better shape to subscribe to this Loan for it comes at a time when we have more of the year's products turned into cash. Let us subscribe with a willingness that will make criticism impossible, that will show Uncle Sam the farmers of America are behind him with their money as well as with their plows.

Take them to your country banker and have him give you certificates of deposit for the bonds. Your banker can take these bonds to a Federal Reserve bank and borrow money for your use in case you suddenly find yourself in need of funds. Hiding a bond in your stocking at this time is just as bad as hoarding money. Keep the bonds and the money in circulation and the country will pull through this crisis all right. Just before the sale of bonds for the Third Liberty Loan started Miss Ames, the compositor in the little country print shop, said to Bill, "They'll make you buy some bonds this time, won't they, Bill?" "Not me; I won't invest a dollar." "Bet you $2 that you buy at least one bond before this sale is over," said the editor, rubbing a grimy finger reflectively over his long nose. "Take the bet!" snapped Bill. Bill left the office, and Mr. Rich, the editor, got in communication with the head of the selling committee. As they talked low, the young lady in the bank could not hear the conversation. A week after the campaign opened Bill Bradshaw had bought no bonds. It was well on into the third week when Mr. Rich met Mr. McNamara coming to his office. y "Hello, Mac! Any news from friend Bill?" "Yes and no. Fact is I called on him last night, and I told him I understood that he had repeatedly refused to buy bonds. Now I was required by the government to fill out this card. Then I pulled my yellow card on him and began to ask ques tions." McNamara paused. Rich waited, then asked: "What then?" "His wife said: 'Bill, you'd better buy bonds than to let that go to the government' " "Did he?" asked Rich. "No, not then, but he asked me not to send the card until tonight,' which, of course, I agreed to. I think he'll see the light" McNamara went down the street, while Rich went into his office with a smile on. Late that afternoon, as Rich went by the bank to the Mr. McNamara called him in. "Bill bought a thousand dollars' worth of bonds," he said with a broad grin. "Scared, was he?" asked Rich. "Pretty badly rattled." It was fully two weeks before Bradshaw called at the Criterion office, and when he did he walked up to the desk and, laying down $2, said: "I am a man of my word. I bought bonds, for I considered them a good Investment One does not lose anything by such an investment', and he has the satisfaction of helping his government." This was said in a very patriotic way, but Miss Ames, who was sharp of tongue and not at all particular about people's feelings, said: "Bill Bradshaw, I bet they pulled a yellow card on you." "I don't know what color the pesky thing was," admitted Bill. "But if one of them cards would' go to Uncle Sam, with them questions filled out like Mac wanted to, I'd be arrested for a The whole trouble is Mac knows to a cent just how much money I have, and there's no gettin' 'round it" Bill remained and was unmercifully roasted by the young jWoman, but for all that Bill Bradshaw was the only man In Cedarvllle who had a yellow card pulled on him. After he left Miss Ames turned upon her boss. "Mr. Rich, did you tell McNamara to go after Bradshaw?" "No; I told McNamara what he said about not buying bonds, and that 1 had a bet with him on the result, but no stakes were up it was just a verbal bet but a yellow card would bring him quicker than anything." And so it came about that Bill Bradshaw displays in his window a "Flag of Honor" and tells all his neighbors what a good investment he considers Liberty Bonds. a, three months and Buffered such agony that I was just drawn up in a knot. . .

Forces Aggregate 75,000 and Other Branches Constitute Veritable Army. A veritable army, comparable in thoroughness of organization and ef-- " fectiveness of operation with those now in the battle zones of France, is working at top speed in the Eighth Federal Reserve District for the success of the Third Liberty Loan. Reduced to the basis of army divisions 12,000 to a division there are practically eight divisions in the field, as many Liberty Loan workers in the states composing this reserve district as there were American soldiers in France Just before the recent big German drives. This army of Liberty Loan workers is being directed by a central organization 'comparable to an army's general staff. On two floors of the Railway Exchange Building, St. Louis, the largest office building In the world, occupying enough space to accommodate all the business houses of an ordinary town, are the high commanders of this army. From this nerve center of direction go out the directions, the orders, the advice to 363 counties of the district. Each smaller unit in each state and county has its Individual heads and leaders. While these messages go and come by telephone and telegraph, the central headquarters is launching a veritable avalanche of printed matter over ItB territory. These tons of literature, destined to reach the 7,885,-60- 0 population in the district, have been mailed at the rate of 150,000 sheets a day. Nineteen hundred and thirty-nin- e newspapers are reached. One thousand ministers of as many churches are supplied with Christian and religious argument for the success of the loan. Working directly under central headquarters are 5,455 Bales directors, 16 to a county. Working under each director is a staff of between 10 and 15 salesmen. Even estimating the sales force under each director at 10 men, this would make a total of 55,450 salesmen. It 1b believed the total is AGED DWELLEHS IN Automobile Line.

The"re are 5,000 publicity directors In the district, with staffs of assist- ants. There are 2,000 speakers and several thousand workers in miscel7 laneous fields. A perfect system of checking up on all persons able to buy bonds has been evolved. V. L. Price, director of sales forces, can put Mb finger immediately upon weak spots. Each salesman 1b supplied with "prospect" cards. These show a man's financial ability as regards buying Liberty Bonds. If the "prospect" refuses to buy a card containing his refusal is sent by the salesman to the sales director of his district. The saleB director, in turn, forwards the card to Sales Director Price. Thus failure to subscribe Is definitely fixed. It does not end here, however. The man whose reason for declining to buy 1b not considered good Is entered upon one of the yellow "slacker" cards which are forwarded to national headquarters In Washington, D. C. There he is classified with the "slackers" from every reserve district in the Union. When the grand total of much more than $3,000,000,000 of Liberty Bond sales is cast up sometime after May 4 no one bond among them probably will represent so much sacrifice so much scrimping bo much real "giving till it hurts" as three ?50 bonds sold in the St. Louis Poor House. Those three bonds, to be paid for at ?1 a week, will represent many little luxuries given up a bag of candy here, a pocket knife for whittling there by three old men alone in the world but still partners In the great Ameri can nation and ready and willing to do their humble "bit" to help bring victory home. These men are, John Crane, Joseph Walsh and Charles Helmholt, all on the shady side of 70 years. They have for years been inmates of the St. Louis City Infirmary, the large Institution topping, a hill on Arsenal street, in sight of Potters' Field. A dollar probably looms larger In that structure than anywhere else In the large city. Even nickels and dimes are treasured there. Crane has for a long time been messenger at the institution and receives $5 every 80 dayB for his services. When Dr. Charles E. Baur, superintendent, placarded the reception room of the Infirmary with Third Liberty Loan posters more in a spirit of patriotism than in the expectation of making sales Crane was deeply Interested. He Inquired if cash was required to buy a bond, and when Dr. Baur informed him he might buy a ?50 one for $1 a week he was over-Joyed. INSURANCE "The Service Agency.

Madams Schumann-Helnk- , famous opera singer, who, because of her untiring work in behalf of the soldiers in the cantonments, has become affectionately known as "mother" to them, 'has Just enlisted as a Liberty Loan campaigner. "I surely am at your service for our country and government," she wired the National Speakers' Bureau. "Just command me. On April 8 I bought for myself again Liberty Bonds to the amount of $20,000. I am heart and soul for the United States and for the army and navy boys forever." Editor, Successful Farming. There are about 2,000,000 men now under arms, training to fight, and it takes a lot of money to feed, clothe, transport and equip such a force of consumers who previously were iJncle Sam cannot at once reach into the pockets of those who stay at home and draw? out by taxation enough money to pay the bills of such an army and navy. The only possible source of ready cash Is to borrow from those who have It. The farmers have shown their energy in producing the largest crops and have endured hardships due to a shortage of help, and I believe they will loan to Uncle Sam every dollar they can spare, thus giving full support' to the farmers' sons who are ready to make the supreme sacrifice, that we may not be conquered by such a foe as Germany. Just as your few bushels of grain and pounds of meat will, when put with the products of all the farms, save a world from starvation, so the amount of your money, put with all the money which may be loaned to the government for Liberty bonds, will prevent this great war from ending In favor of the foe. Liberty bonds are receipt for the money you lend Uncle Sam, and they bear 4 per cent interest. g. FOODS TO FEED THE BOYS Every farmer knows how his boys like to eat. Mother's fried chicken and apple dumplings and pumpkin pies haven't a chance in the world when the boys sit down at table. Lots of farmers' boys are in France and the farmer doesn't want them to go hungry over there. Liberty Bonds tuy food for them. article recently published In Bome papers of the Central West gave an erroneous impression as to the part the farmer should play In financing the great struggle for liberty and world freedom. It suggested that the fanner should not borrow money with which to buy Liberty Bonds that he should not "inconvenience himself" in lending financial support at this critical time in the history of the nation. This is no time to think of Inconvenience at home. If inconvenience is to be the basis of thought, let the American farmer consider first the inconvenience of the boys on the firing line in FranceT At this particular time it is up to all Americans to make sacrifices. This is no time to think of comfortable financial circumstances and freedom from inconveniences. The government is at a great deal of inconvenience. If the boys at the blaz-in- , thunderous front are standing in .muddy trenches dodging shell splinters and Hun bullets and facing the terrible gas attacks, there is no reason why the farmer at home should not extend himself to help out Don't think of inconvenience.. Think of the inconvenience and danger of your son, or your neighbor's 'son, at the front, and buy Liberty Bonds to the limit Stretch your financial system to the breaking point, if need be, to support your government and the boys who are actually engaged In the business of fighting your fight. If you haven't the money at hand to do your full duty toward the great cause, go out and borrow it from your bank borrow so that you may buy bonds "until It hurts." Your financial support may be a measure of your practical patriotism and the nation needs practical patriots at this critical period. Don't think of inconvenience think only of success,. "I am an American,,' he said, "and I would like to help my country. I believe i could finish paying for one." So Dr. Baur put him down and he is going to give ?4 every month out of his salary of $5. Crane told his crony, Helmholt, night attendant at the telephone, about It. Helmholt gets ?5 a month for his services and he very shortly convinced himself that he, too, could afford to buy a bond. He signed up for a 950 one on the payment plan. Walch outranks his fellows by far in the matter of wages. As the sexton of that cheerlesB place Potters' Field he receives 10 a month. He is an inmate of the Infirmary and Boon figured that he could well afford a $50 bond if hlB two $5 friends could and, besides, the government needed tho money. So he, too, became a bond owner at ?1 a week. Mrs. Clara Kerstlng, another inmate of the institution, is keenly patriotic and is doing her share in helping to finance the war for human liberty. Although paralyzed on one side, she is an expert with the knitting or crocheting needles. She has crocheted yardsof fancy laces and knitted numerous garments. The'knitted articles go to the soldiers and sailors and war sufferers even more unfortunate than herself. The laces she sells to Interested visitors. She manages to handle her knitting needles by sticking one of them Into the sleeve of her paralyzed arm. She makes up for the handicap of the useless member through the dexterity of her useful one. She Is saving the money from the sale of her articles to buy Liberty Bonds. Mrs. Bessie Lackey is another patriotic inmate of the Institution. She is now employed in making a patchwork "crazy" quilt which she hopes to sell in order to buy thrift stamps and, perhaps, a Liberty Bond. Another woman, mother of 20 children, is one of the busiest knitters in the institution. Seventeen of her children are dead. Two of the three living are in the national service one in the army and one in the navy. She is buying thrift stamps and hopes to buy Mrs. Harry Lee Wyatt of 4 Park-- . land place probably has the most novel assignment within the gift of the American Red Cross. She has been detailed to instruct classes In knitting among the Inmates, of the City Hospital, City Infirmary and Insane Asylum. ' She declares that "the work is being taken up enthusiastically by these unfortunates. In the Sanitarium the occupation of knitting Is said by officers of the institution to have had a marked soothing effect upon the minds of the workers. Their first concern upon awakening in the morning is about their knitting materials. Mrs. Wyatt has a regular visiting day at, each Institution. The St. Louis chapter of the Red Cross supplies the materials and the finished garments are sent to men in service or to war sufferers. $1.00 and Up Rooms Without Both.
