NUMBER 3 . - - DOVE OF PEACE LIT, THE WAR ENDED THE ARMISTICE HAS BEEN SIGNED, AND THE WAR IS OVER. LARGE CITIES AND ALL TOWNS CELEBRATED BY THE RINGING OF BELLS, BLOWING OF WHITTLES AND THE FIRING OF GUNS, THE ALLIED .COUNTRIES WILL SOON BE A HAPPY AND UNITED PEOPLE. THE NEWS IS GLORIOUS AND EVERY BODY IS REJOICING. The news of the glorious acceptance of the peace proposals reached Louisville at 2 o'clock Monday morning, and in a short time every town m Kentucky was notified and celebrating commenced. It has been a long, bloody war and millions of men have been killed and thousands upon thousands have died of disease. While the price for peace has been great, our hearts bleeding for our boys who fell upon foreign fields, honor demanded that our country should be protected, and America and those countries allied with her, were determined'to bring about peace, not counting the cost. DrafKalL Suspension Cousidered. WASHINGTON", Nov, 8. Provost Marshal General Crowder called Into conference today the heads of all sections of his office to discuss possible suspension of the November draft calls, under which more than 300.0(50 men havebeen ordered to army camps. While Gen. Crowder would nob discuss what recommendations he might make to the general staff, it is known that his advisers will advocate warmly withdrawal of the November call, at least if the Germans accept the American and allied armistice terms before the movement to camps begins. With 4,000,000 men already under arms overseas and at home, the feeling is growing that no more will be needed, even though it may be a long time before American forces can be recalled from France and some additional men may be sent over.

It was intended originally to ask the nation for $170,500,000 from the people to carry on this great work through another year. Kentucky's quota was placed at 1,770,800. However, it has been found that, on account of the amazing increase in the size of our army and navy and the enlarged demands of our Allies, the national amount must be increased 50 per cent, and this calls "for a corresponding Increase from every state. As the problem has been presented to the various states of the Union by the officials in charge of the United War Work Campaign drive, the leaders In every state have rallied quickly around the standard of the 50 per cent increase, believing that the needs of the men in the army and navy should take precedence over everything else. At a recent meeting in Louisville, representatives from all seven organizations from all parts of the state discussed this 50 per cent increase very thoroughly. At the close of the discussion a resolution was introduced by From R. P.

While wandering alone in the Jungle he comes across a dead man in a hut outside of which a little girl is playing. When he is rescued, he takes the girl to the hospital and announces his intention of adopting her. CHAPTER II His commanding officer, Major Howard, tells him that the dead man was Hampton, a traitor who sold war department secrets to an international gang in Washington, and was detected by himself and Kellerman while they were working in the same oflxce with him. Howard pleads to be allowed to send the child home to his wife and they agree that she shall never know her father's shame.

She declares that when she is eighteen she intends to marry Wallace. n cnair. tie neard the storming voice of the Brigadier a long distance away. Howard was expostulating. They were going through the papers again. A' clerk had been called in. Mark heard something about searching the streets. Somebody was telephoning. And, above all, he was conscious of Kellerman in the next room, long before he opened the glass door and entered. He was alone, and struggling" back into the realization of his situation. Kellerman's threat and his refusal to consider it, the visit of Hartley, began to link themselves into the chain of the devilish conspiracy. He rose unsteadily to his feet, wiping the sweat from his forehead. Colonel Howard was coming through the open doorway from Kellerman's rpom. "Sit down, Wallace," he said gravely. "I've been talking to the Brigadier, or, rather, he has been talking to me. You must consider yourself under arrest In your quarters. Now, how did this damned tiling happen?" Mark explained as lamely as one who had heard excuses of all kinds from soldiers brought before him for various offenses during his term of service, and waved them aside. "You know what this means, Wallace?" asked the Colonel in a kindly, serious tone. "New plans." "Yes, but to you?" "I guess so, Colonel Howard. And Td like to hurry it through. Of course I shall want It over. Til go home now, In any sense your guardian now, ana Ken-- I so, Eleanor, if you want me to be this maelstrom," continued Mrs. son.

He placed his hands on Mark's shoulders and swung him round, looking straight Into his eyes. "Thank God for that, Mark!" he cried. "I fought the Brigadier over you, and I'll fight him to the end of time. I told him it was a damned lie. I'll swear to it." "What do you mean, sir?" "That you are a frequenter of gambling houses, Wallace. That's the story that they have been putting over on him. You know whom I mean by they.' Washington's swimming with that crooked gang, and that story well, they managed to start that in circulation and saw that it reached the Brigadier's ears. He heard that you were in a fight outside Mrs. Kenson's place in the small hours this morning. Mark, I'll see you through this. Impulsively the kindly old man started toward the door. He had almost reached it when Wallace found his "Thank you. That's quite enough, Captain Wallace. My conduct in intruding on such a busy man has been quite inexcusable. Good day, Captain Wallace!" She made a mocking little bow and went toward her cab. She stopped and looked back. The brief anger was ended. But Mark was already free from that Intolerable interview and stumbling homeward. He let himself in, wrote out his resignation, and mailed it As he paced' his room, pondering over the situation, it seemed to him that the key to the mystery lay with Hartley. Even yet he had not allowed himself to believe Kellerman a traitor. But it was essential that he should find Hartley, and Insist upon a confession, both of his motives in watching the Colonel's house, and of those that had brought him to the war department. Suddenly the telephone Interrupted his meditations. ,A woman's voice at the other end was asking for him. "Are you quite sure you are Captain Mark Wallace?" it inquired, when he had stated his identity. "I am as sure as I have ever been," answered Mark. "Ah, now I recognize you," said the strange "voice in a merry ripple of laughter. "And you don't know who I am?" "If you will state your name " began Mark patiently. "Someone who knows that you are in trouble and wants to help you. I'm afraid you won't let me. You seemed to be prejudiced against me when we met before. Well, I am Ada Kenson." Mark uttered an angry exclamation, which he instantly checked. This might prove the key that he was seeking.

You see, when you adopted Hampton's daughter you unconsciously put a sort of noose about your neck. There was the possibility of your coming into contact with Hampton's friends. The system is widespread, you know, and quite twenty years old. So you had to go west. "Now, Captain Wallace, I'm a frank woman, and I'll put my proposition to you. You don't want to see Major Kellerman walk off with that prettj ward of yours, do you? And you can't marry her without a little money Well, you could be very useful to us in many ways. Would you, without sacrificing your patriotism or revealing any secrets, become a salaried workei of our organization?" Mark stood up, trembling. "I don't quite understand," he said huskily; and the picture of Eleanor in Kellerman's arms at the dance swam before his eyes. "What is it you want me tc do?" "That's what they meant to 'o.

He believed his assailant to be Kel lerman, and, half unconscious as he was, he fought madly. But the man Kellerman or not, was more than a match for him.

"The powers conferred on Marshal Foch only concern the conclusion of an armistice." said the dispatch. ''The modifictions which he is qualified to grant are strictly limited. Any snspension of arms even if it is asked for on philanthropic grounds is out of the question. "It is stated that there should be no doubt that the armistice and the peace considerations are two distinct questions and while Marshal Foch is duly qualified to negotiate the armistice, the jesce negotiations are concerns a The Influenza epidemic has somewhat abated in this community.

County Court Day in 30 counties in Kentucky falls on Monday, November; 11, the first day of the United War Work Campaign drive, the day which because wille called "Pershing-Day,-" the great American general has so heartily endorsed each and all of the seven 'Organizations united in the campaignthe Y. M. C. A,, the Y. W. C. A., the National Catholic War Council, the Jewish Welfare' Board, the War Camp Community Service, the American Library Association and the Salvation Army. County Court Day, even in times of peace, is an occasion for much activity in the gathering together of the farmers of the district, but on "Pershing Day," with the word of the war on the lips of everybody, great zest and patriotism will be added to the usual buzz and hum of Court Day by hundreds of speakers who will lift their voices in the interest of the United War Work Campaign while the rural residents are'gathered together around the county court houses or in other sections of the towns. It is a mighty opportunity to bring the importance of the work of the seven agencies before the farmers, to pass the endorsement of Gen. Pershing right along, and to bring home the imperative necessity for not only continuing the war welfare work, but of extending the scope of the activities of the seven organizations. Speakers will be supplied for each of the thirty counties which hold court on "Pershing Day," no less than six speakers being assigned to each town. No farmer who comes to town to trade will escape hearing the wonderful story of the good being wrought by the war work agencies and so enthused that he will carry the word back to his own fireside to share it with his family. It is. a marvelous story, growing in greatness all the time, and it bears the stamp of the white seal of truth and high ideals, splendidly carried out in the United States and Overseas.

Oddly enough, such battles are almost always .fought on land, for no matter how great the victory at sea, it does not seem as efficacious in ending war as. does such a victory on land.
