A dust bath aids the bens in keeping lice in check and therefore adds to their comfort. Usually the lice are not present on the birds in sufficient number to prove particularly harmful. However, it is better to kep the hens as free as possible from this pest, and if they are not able to keep them in check by dusting themselves, other measures can be undertaken. To rid the, hens of lice, each one can be treated by placing small pinches of idium flnorid, a material which can obtained at most large drug stores, among .the feathers next .to the skin one pinch on the head, one on the neck, two on the back, one on the breast, one below the vent, one at the base of the tail, one on either thigh, and one scattered on the underside of each wing when spread. Another method is to use a small quantity of blue ointment, a piece about as large as a pea on the skin one inch below the vent. If mercurial ointment la used instead of blue ointment, it should be diluted with an equal quantity of vaseline. Any of these methods will be found very effective in ridding the hens of lice and should be employed whenever the lice become troublesome. Two or three applications a year usually prove sufficient Mites are more troublesome and more harmful than lice. They do not live upon the birds like the lice, but during the day hide in the cracks and crevices of the roosts and walls of the house, and at night they come out and 'get upon the fowls. They suck the hen's blood, and if allowed to become 'plentiful as they certainly will if not destroyed will seriously affect her health, and consequently her ability to lay eggs. They may be eradicated, by a few thorough applications of kerosene or some of the coal-ta- r products which are sold for this purpose, or crude petroleum, to the Interior of the poultry house. The commercial coal-tproducts are more expensive but retain their killing power longer, and they may be cheapened by reducing with an equal part of kerosene. Crude petroleum will spray better if thinned with one part of' kerosene to four parts of the crude oil. Both the crude petroleum and the coal-ta- r products often contain foreign particles, so should be strained before attempting to spray. One must be sure that the spray reaches all of the cracks and crevices, giving especial attention to the roosts, dropping boards and nests. ar If the best results are to be expected from the flock, the hens must not be allowed to become overrun vrith .y leAmericanRed Cross : &.

Hubbuch Bros. 522-5- 24 & Wellendorff, Inc., St., TERRORIZATION PLANNED. In seeking the motive for the raid officials can reach no other conclusion than that the Berlin authorities planned to extend their general theory of terroriza-tio- n to these waters, hoping to create a panic which would force withdrawal of submarine chasers abroad or the suspension of troop movements. It was pointed out that should it be the purpose of the German Admiralty to attempt to blockade American ports and Bend many submarines, the pressure abroad would be released and ships from British positions could move with increased freedom. On the other hand the great extent of the American coast line, the connection between ports by means of canals and sounds and many other conditions would tend to make impossible a successful blockading operation, i These are some of the reasons that incline officials to believe that it is only a sea foray with which they have to deal. It may be repeated. It is not possible to prevent its repetition nor can enough additional boats be turned out in some months to make It That the invasion of American waters had been expected for some time and that the realization'will only serve to increase if possible the already immense naval and military efforts of America, is the view commonly expressed in the press here. The morning newspapers give the news of the submarine operations prominence second only to the operations on the western front, and comment on it as a matter not calling for alarm. The Daily Chronicle says it is a challenge which the people of the United States will not take lying down, adding: "It will make them indignant, but certainly not afraid.

HZiD ODD Now For the Big War Savings Stamp Drive, June 24 to June 28 State Headquarters of the War Savings Committee in Kentucky is very busy these days preparing for the big June drive for pledging the State's quota, or what remains of it on June 24 next, when the drive starts. The plans for the drive were outlined at a meeting of county chairmen with members of the National Committee at Lexington on Friday of last week, and the hundred county chairmen In attendance upon the meeting were shown how easily the plans can be carried into effect in the State of Kentucky. The eeneral outline has been fitted to the campaign in Kentucky, and printed forms are being rushed through in order to get them in the hands of county chairmen as speedily as possible. The whole thing depends upon organization in the several counties of the State, and the counties represented at the Lexington meeting and those whose chairmen were unavoidably absent on that occasion were pledged to the National Committee to make whatever organization is essential to the success of the Nebraska plan. Rather than to devote every week of the remaining months of the year 1918 to the work of the War Savings campaign, it was determined to make one big drive, June 24 to June 28 next, closing on National War Savings Day, during which time the rest of Kentucky's quota, that not already secured, will be pledged by its citizens, to be purchased during the six months following. This drive will not be for sales of stamps, but for pledges. When it is over, and Kentucky's quota has been pledged by her loyal citizens, the rest of the year will be mere "follow up" to see that the War Stamps are purchased as the months pass, to the end that when December 31 comes we can wire Chairman Vanderlip, of the National Committee, and our own Federal Director J. D. Lyon, that Kentucky has met her obligation as she always has done in the past, and this best Government security. The War Savings activity in Kentucky stood aside recently and helped "put over" the Third Liberty Loan campaign. Its organization has done its part in the other war activities of the year, and our county chairmen can now call upon those loyal men and women for assistance in our big June drive. Already scores of persons who have 'been engaged in the other activities have tendered their services to county chairmen for this drive, and in every instance their tender of service has been accepted. We should add every volunteer to the ranks of campaigners .for the June drive. The plan of winding up the big campaign with a public meeting in every schoolhouse in Kentucky in the afternoon of June 28, which is to be proclaimed National War Savings Day by President Wilson, by Governor Stanley and by the Mayor of every city, town and hamlet in the State, and at a time when all of the other States of the Union are holding such meetings, is a splendid one. The entire country will take an hour off on this day to pledge itself to Thrift and War Savings. Men and women of the entire country are not invited to attend, but are to be told that they are expected to be there to participate in the meeting of their community. The meetings are not to be adjourned until each community in each State of the Nation has pledged its quota, which will be announced in advance of the meeting. In order to start off each meeting in the State of Kentucky with the proper enthusiasm the four days preceding the holding of the meeting will be devoted by the organization in each school district to securing in advance of the meeting the pledges of as many of the people of each community as can be seen in that limited time. A record of those pledging in advance of the meeting will be read at the meeting to show that they have already signed up to save and serve their country. A record also will be kept of those of each community who do not answer present when the community roll is called. Our Uncle Sam wants to know if there are any in the community who are not in sympathy with him as well as he wants to know the names of those who answer the call of the President on that great June day. over-purchase- Automobile Line.

One is: "Be sure that there iB a definite invitation from the family or some responsible person competent to speak for them before entering the home in the name of the American Bed Cross." Another: "Be sure that the mem-be-r of the family in question is In some branch of the service." Casual reading of the instructions may lead to the Impressionthat Home Service Is a simple bit of work to be done in the odd moments of the members of-- chapter committee. It is not a simple work, nor is It an "odd moment" task. In addition to mastering a knowledge of government regulations on separation allowances and the War Risk Insurance Law, a Red Cross Home Service worker must either be naturally endowed with or be able to acquire the qualities of tact, patience and kindness, and must study the problems which beset home life. "With all its ramifications, Red Cross Home Service is the most exacting type of work now required by this "humanitarian institution within the boundaries of our "own country.

This was told by Clarence Ousley, assistant secretary of agriculture, in an address to the women's committee of the council of national defense, meeting in Washington. "I can imagine no finer thing," said Mr. Ousley, "for a city woman to do in this war emergency than to go to the farm for the harvest or for some other period of labor strain to help her country sister bear the burdens of kitchen and farm. "There are thousands of men in the towns and cities doing things that women" can do as well. There are men cooks, men waiters, men clerks, men bookkeepers, whose places might well be filled by women. "I will despise American manhood if the great body of our men permit our women to be drafted for the hard tasks of agriculture until we have sent d every creature in breeches to the trenches or driven him to the fields, out women are to be encouraged, so far as their physical condition will permit or the circumstances surrounding them will advise, to engage In the lighter tasks of the farm, particularly In dairy work, in vegetable cultivation and in fruit harvesting." Mr. Ousley praised the services of the 1,700 women agents who are spreading the teachings of the department of agriculture and state colleges, and paid tribute to the six or seven millions of the farmers' wives who "are doing a man's share of agricultural production and conservation." "I have seen them," he said, referring to the farmers' wives, "hoeing in the hot sun while their babies lay In the shade of near-b- y trees. They are truly, and to the limit of their strength and their marvelous patience, the helpmeets of their husbands." able-bodien TO THE LOCAL POSTMASTER: to me en .$5.

The problem before us is not primarily a financial problem but rather a problem of increased production of war essentials and the saving of the materials and the labor necessary for the support and equipment of our Army and Navy. Thoughtless expenditure of money for uses up the labor of men, the products of the farm, mines, and factories, and overburdens transportation, a!i of which must be used to the utmost and at their best for war purposes.

Lee Fohl, the boss of the Indians, declares Tris to be the best ,man absolutely that he ever worked with. Tris, according to Fohl, is there with everything brains, batting, fielding and all the rest of it. In addition, the famous outfielder has a disposition that fits the temperament of every ball player with the Indians. He's the friend of everybody. The kids who hang around the ball park and who, like kids ever since baseball became a great game, idolize the stars, know Speaker as their pal a good fellow and a cheery friend.

If any man has failed to see the reason why he should cut his plentiful apportionment of two spoonfuls of sugar to the one of war time, he can find it In a recent publication of the United States department of agriculshortture explaining the world-wid- e age especially the shortage among the allies in the supply of sweets. Not only has the supply of sugar in some parts of the United States been short, but there has been an actual shortage of more than 2,000,-00- 0 tons annually in the world since the war began, and the shortage is likely to continue, the publication says, primarily because of the destruction of a large number of sugar mills and the devastation of a considerable area of lands in Europe. Trior to the war practically all the belligerent countries, with the exception of the United Kingdom and Italy, exported sugar, the total amount being upward of 3,000,000 tons. War, hown ever, has changed the map and at the same time has shifted tire channels of trade. In 1918 it Is estimated that the allies must import a minimum of 1,200,000 tons of sugar. Formerly the United Kingdom and France depended to a considerable extent upon Germany, Austria-HungarBelgium and Russia for sugar. These sources were shut off by the war. The United Kingdom alone thus lost the source of more than half of her normal supply of sugar and has turned to new as well as other old sources for her supply. The changes thus brought about have been largely a diversion of the product of Mauritius to the United Kingdom instead of to India, and an expansion of the imports of unrefined sugar from Cuba, the Philippines and Peru. For refined sugar she drew upon the United States and Java. However; the allies cannot turn to such exporting countries as Java and Mauritius without being forced to go to a much longer distance and over a more perilous route than across the Atlantic. If the allies are compelled to go to these countries it will require an extra amount of shipping which is needed for transportation of American soldiers and supplies to France and England. Russia's exports practically ceased in 1914, and she is now reported as somewhat short of sugar. Italy's crop decreased last year and her imports have Increased largely since the war began. Italy's consumption, however. Is small and her deficit Is not serious. sugar-producin- ed g sugar-productio- y, Tris Speaker. wanted a photo of the famous outfielder, and he was requested to pose. "Pose nothing," he growled. "I'll stand right here just like I am, and if you want to shoot, why, fire ahead." And he wouldn't budge. The snapshot was pulled off with Speaker leaning against the wall of a hotel building. His hat was pulled down over his eyes. He was reading a letter, and he was Industriously puffing away at the short stub of a cigar. Little he cared whether he showed as a real star when the photographs gained circulation. fore urge that our people everywhere pledge themselves, as suggested by the Secretary of the Treasury, to the practice of thrift; to serve the Government to their utmost in increasing production in all fieids necessary to the winning of the war; to conserve food and fuel and useful materials of every kind; to devote their labor only to the most necessary tasks; and to buy only those things which are essential to individual health and efficiency; and that the people, as evidence of their loyalty, NSBKmb invest all that they can save in Liberty Bonds and War SavSEmMm8mA ing Stamps.

The man who buys Government securities transfers the purchasing power of his money to the United States Government until after this war, and to that same degree does not buy in competition with the Government. I earnestly appeal to every man, woman and child to pledge themselves on or before the 23th of June to save constantly and to buy as regularly as possible the securities of the Government; and to do this as far as possible through membership In War Savings Societies.

Until the inauguration of the "War Savings Stamps as a method of helping Uncle Sam and for teaching careless Americans how to save, there had never been any definite plan for reaching the people of this 'country how to save. Many people save on a 'hit and miss" plan, moBtly miss md as a consequence there were few real savers among the American people. The War Savings Stamps teach one to save systematically, many persons adopting the method of saving one tworpr more each week.

The lesson of Thrift will be so thoroughly learned by that time that it will have become a habit, and everyone will become members of the big thrift army of Uncle Sam's government. However, it was not with the view of teaching the lesson of thrift that Uncle Sam started this big "War Savings campaign.
