He was at work at a shingle machine, and a splinter caught on the saw. He reached to pick it off, when his right hand was caught, and two of his fingers, were amputated. A physician was called, chloroform was administered, and while his hand was being dressed, he died It is supposed that he had heart trouble, and that the chloroform superinduced his death. No blame is attached to the physician. Mr. Gowens' death was a shock to the whole community, as he was liked Toy every body.

Secretary McAdoo has definitely announced that the Fourth Liberty Loan will bear Interest at the rate of 4 per cent. Men who deal In financial matters know that this is a good rate of interest when the value and strength of the security are taken into consideration. 'Wise lenders always look to the strength of the security first, and then to the amount of returns the investment will pay. Back of every government bond stands the whole resources of the nation. All the coal in the ground hacks your $100 or your $500 bond. All the wheat that will grow on the fields of America for a generation is hack of the paper the government gives you with "Fourth Liberty Loan" across its face. The very soil on which that wheat grows is security for the bond. The whole property of the United States and its people so long as the government endures is pledged to the buyer that the bond and its interest will be paid exactly as stipulated. The United States has never repudiated a dollar of its debts. It started right when it became a nation. After the Revolution there were a good many Americans who thought that the debts of that war should be denied and forgotten, so that the new nation might have a start free from debt. But the wiser men who framed the government saw into the future. They knew that "honesty is the best policy" for governments as well as men. So they assumed the load of Revolutionary debt and paid it off. People may give money to certain war work and war funds, but they are not giving one single dollar so far as the Liberty Loan is concerned. They are loaning money to" their government, which Is themselves, and they are supporting it with their dollars Just as they do with their ballots and their bayonets. And unless that government is supported by their dollars It will perish from the earth, in spite of all that can be done with ballots and bayonets. Modern war requires money in greater sums than were ever known before in the earth's history. When the United States declared war against Spain Congress voted a credit of $50,000,000 to back that war declaration. That sum will not pay the present war expenses for more than a day. Bt every dollar that is spent In' beating the Kaiser makes the security that is back of every Liberty Loan just that much greater. The necessity of backing up the government is teaching every American to save money. He sees better what money can buy now he understands its value better, since he understands that his money is behind the rifles that are driving back the Hun on the west front He thinks more of a dollar when he realizes that it Is dollars that keep the big battleships on the seas and that it is these same battleships that keep the Hun from crossing the sea and carrying the war into America. No man who buys a Liberty Bond with his savings will feel like a Liberty Bonds are exempt from taxation. Taxes cannot touch it so long as it is loaned to the United States government. There 13 no one in the country too poor to buy a Liberty Bond. Thousands of people in cities and country are buying on the Installment plan, paying so much a month or so much at stated Intervals. In the cities a tremendous amount of every loan Is taken by people who are paid weekly or The American people are learning to buy bonds as Investments as well as a patriotic duty. tax-dodgsemi-monthl- YlislKEGOOD "nucPTHCRCimr " FROM THE OLD TOWN; " " RETURN SCMEffiiT OUR BOYS ARE PRESERVING AMERICA'S TRADITIONS ON.

That somehow there is a difference when you go down the street? That the old places are more subdued and quiet; less busy and noisy? That so where you will, the club, tho bowling ally, the billiard parlor, anywhere, there is the same subtle sense of change! The old voices no longer hall you with such eager challenge, such royal welcome, such whole souled the old smiles no longer greet you so warmly and the old hand claps on the shoulder no longer bring you the same old sense of comradeship and friendly interest Something seems to have slipped silently out of life. For scores of the old faces are missing: faces that you knew and loved the best. They are "over there" in the khaki-cla- d ranks that are slowly pushing the gray Hun line backward toward the Rhine. They are taking up the burden of civilization, of democracy and freedom; the liberation of a half world threatened with enslavement; the perpetuation of our own national liberty and safety. The overthrow of Kaiserdom. And some of them are never to come back! None of us will ever forget these missing faces; the faces of our friends, our brothers, and sweethearts, our husbands and fathers. All of us will hope to welcome them home again, triumphant from the firing line, the jaws of death, the literal mouth of the inferno. Not mu3t any of us forget them in the coming Fourth Liberty Loan drive. For it is to strengthen them and their fight, to hurry their ultimate victory and to speed their return, that these bonds are to be offered. That and that alone. Remember these missing faces; these faces that we love. And begin at once your saving for the Fourth loan. good-fellowshi- p; TRENCHES. THEY DESERVE OUR SUPPORT Back Them Up With our Dollars When The Fourth Liberty Loan Campaign Opens Septem- ber 28. Every day the newspapers tell of some one or another of the Yanks having been awarded the cross of war for conspicuous hravery in action. Every day these same dispatches carry the story of some intrepid charge against the enemy trenches, the storming of some machine gun nest, the taking of another town of two in desperate hand to hand fighting. And our hearts swell with pride that it is so. Equally appreciative of their prowess are the allied leaders. "You have shown yourselves to be worthy sons of your great country and have gained the admiration of your brothers in arms," declared General Man-gi-n y in an official orthe other der thanking the Yanks for their part in the last great thrust against the Huns. General Mangin voiced the sentiments of the entire membership of the allied general staff. For the Yanks have made good with a vengeance. We are wholly justified In being proud of them. We can look the whole world in the eye, knowing they rank with the finest. We can justly feel again that the traditions of American arms have been upheld; that in the eyes of the world America no longer stands accused of pacifism at the cost of honor; of meek submission to the ruthless arrogance of any people drunk with power. Once more we may hold up our heads, square our shoulders, take a reef In our trousers and intimate to the world at large that It's a dangerous pastime to tread upon the tail of our coat.

The campaign for the Fourth Liberty Loan will begin September 28 and close October 19. The result of the loan will be watched with keen Interest In Europe, not only by our associates in the war against the Teutonic powers but by our enemies. It will be regarded by them as a measure of the American people's support of the war. The Germans know full well the tremendous weight and significance of popular support of the war, of the people at home backing up the Army In the field. As the loan succeeeds our enemies will sorrow; as it falls short they will rejoice. Every dollar subscribed will help and encomS age the American soldiers and hurt and deprc33 the enemies of America. The loan will be a test of' the loyalty and willingness of the people of .the United States to make sacrifices compared with the willingness of our soldiers to do their part. There must be and will be no failure by the people to measure up to the courage and devotion of our men in Europe. Many of them have given up their Uvea; shall we at home withhold our money? Shall we spare our dollars while they spare not their very lives? t. ' For the Fourth Liberty Loan is very close at hand. The campaign will open Sept 28 and continue for three weeks.

This decorative paper for walls seems to have first appeared in Europe .toward the end of the seventeenth century. It was brought to France by overseas traders, and the French immediately perceived the possibilities thus offered. The paper did not come in rolls, as we have it today, but in sheets about three and one-hafeet wide by ten feet in length. Some-o- f the finest grades were printed by hand and the cheaper grades from wooden blocks. The patterns represented animals, temples, warriors and all the other familiar figures of Chinese art. The French called these new wall coverings "pagoda papers," and It soon became the fashion to have at least one or two rooms in every home of any pretensions finished with "pagoda papers." Throughout the eighteenth century the custom gradually spread. Both in France and England there were adaptations of the Chinese idea. There is a record of wall paper in England as far back as the time of Henry vm, when the inventory of a monastery Included "chamber hangings of painted papers." There are now In existence examples of English wall paper from the reign of Charles H. Some of the early attempts in the manufacture of wall paper are highly interesting. Tapestries were the elegant wall coverings through the renaissance, as they have been during the middle ages. But tapestries were expensive and beyond the reach of ordinary persons. So a good citizen of Rouen named Le Francois hit upon the idea of imitating tapestries. He Bad fanciful drawings made in the tapestry style on large pieces of paper pasted together In about the size of a tapestry. Upon these drawings Le Francois spread a kind of mucilage and then sprinkled the mucilage with powdered wool In different colors. "Papier volute," as It was called, then ' came Into general usage. lf The Louisville Trust Cft : M LOTJISVELLE, KENTUCKY.

Offenses covered by the "sabotage law" can be committed by the individual alone and unaided anywhere In factory and shop, storehouse, grain elevator, village garage, blacksmith shop, railroad yard, at a country railroad crossing or on the farm, as well as in shipyard or munition plant. Hence the need of many eyes to watch for them. The seriousness of these offenses is Indicated by the penalties : A fine up to 10,000, Imprisonment up to 30 years, or both. They are of two general classes: 1. Wilfully injuring or destroying, or attempting to Injure or destroy, any war material, war premises or war utilities. 2. Wilfully making or causing to be made in a defective manner, or attempting to make or cause to be made in a defective manner, any war material, or any tool, implement, machine, utensil or receptacle used In making, producing, manufacturing or repairing war material. To get an Idea of the widespread possibilities of "sabotage," note the definitions of "war materials," "war premises," and "war utilities," damage ;to which is "sabotage:" "War material" .includes: Arms, armament, ammunition, live stock, 'clothing, food, foodstuffs and fuel; also supplies, munitions and all other articles, or any part or ingredient thereof, Intended for, adapted to, or suitable for use In the conduct of the war. "War premises" includes: All buildings, grounds, mines, or other places where war material is. produced, manufactured, repaired, stored, mined, extracted, distributed, loaded, unloaded or transported, together with all machinery and appliances therein contained; also all boats, arsenals, navy yards, camps, prisons, or military and naval stations. ' "War utilities" includes: All railways, electric lines, roads of every description, railway fixtures, canals, locks, dams, wharfs, piers, docks, bridges, buildings, structures, engines, machines, mechanical contrivances, cars, vehicles, boats, air craft or any. other means of transportation ; all dams, reservoirs, aqueducts, water and gas pipes, storehouses, and buildings used In connection with water and gas works, all electric light and power, steam or pneumatic power, telephone and telegraph plants and poles, wires, fixtures, buildings or structures connected with them.

Even in towns and villages where there is plenty of space, this green feed can be provided in abundance for the poultry. It is, however, on the farms, both large and small, and where large flocks of fowls are kept, that this green feed should be provided. As the fowls are, or should be, excluded from the gardens and truck patches at all seasons, some other spot must be used for providing the green feed. The two crops to sow periodically are rape and oats. Many poultry breeders provide these, but make only one sowing and that about April and May. Repeated sowings for a regular succession of fresh, tender stuff is recommended. As the early sowing of both oats and rape is now growing scarce and getting tough replow the ground and resow again in August. The larger the young chickens get, the more they 'will eat of such tender green feed and as it is both cheap and healthful, the more expensive feeds are saved. The Idea is to produce mature poultry and an abundance of eggs at the minimum of expense, and the work of providing green feed must be begun early and continued all through the growing season.

He swung his cultivator around, lifted the shovels so the wet earth would not rust their glittering surfaces and unhitched his team. The next day he was on hlB way to Camp Taylor and the next day he was in khaki. His younger brother was In the field carrying on his work. It was sundown a few days later when Raymond Brown's father spoke of the war, war gifts and government loans as he saw them. There was maybe a dozen men in front of the blacksmith shop as he talked. "Yes, Raymond's gone," he said. "It makes .things look a lot different. Last winter I gave a dollar to the Red Cross and I helped out a little a while back when the Y. M. C. A. wanted help, and that money was a gift. I bought some war stamps mind you, bought them and was glad I could. "But let me tell you that when the next Liberty Loan comes around I'll buy two dollars' worth where I bought one before. That boy's going to be in France one of these dayB and It Is a far country. I am not going to fail him when he gets over there. And every dollar I put in bonds is Just that much protection for him. ' It backs him up and makes his fight easier. The man who goes deserves all we can do for him and for the country that Is sending him across. And, after all, we are buying something that is as good and better than the money we pay for it when we buy a bond. But you have to feel this war come close to know just why you ought to buy a bond." There are more Raymond Browns In the army now than there were last June, and more fathers and kinfolks are thinking about the lad who stepped away from the home fires to the hell fires that never die down on the west front. There will be a vim and a determination in the Fourth Liberty Loan subscriptions that will be greater than before. Then, too, the man who has no relatives in the army, who is just a plain American citizen, is feeling the thing a little.harder. His love of country may not be a thing that he talks about very much, but he feels it. He may not be able to drive a bayonet through a Hun, but he can make his weight felt when it comes to a war loan and he proposes to do it. The man who thinks sees very clearly that when he puts his money into a Liberty Loan he Is putting it into something that will come back as surely as his government lives. Only the says that the fool or the Liberty Loans are a poor investment. The American knows that his government will do just what it says it will. He gives his money for a bond that Ib a solemn promise to pay his money back at the end of a certain number of years. He knows that the interest will be paid just as surely as anything can be In the world. No I. W. W., no American Bolshevik with a foreign name and a foreign twist to his tongue, is going to shatter the American's confidence in the government he is helping to maintain. "We simply lend, and the money comes back with interest. The bond is as good as American gold and is backed by every acre of land, every piece of property and by the blood of every man in America. The more money we raise the sooner we finish the Job of smashing the Kaiser. That is about "the sum and the substance" of the whole matter. America is in the war with every man and gun and dollar, and proposes to make a clean and quick job of it. It is everybody's war. It is no rich man's war, no poor man's war, but It Is everybody's fight The rich man is buying his bonds and fighting In the army and the poor man is buying what he can and fighting in the same army.
