If you are in sympathy with America and the cause for which we are at war, you will make it known by the Red Cross Service Flag hinging in a conspicious place in your home. The announcement of Judge W. K. Settle as a candidate for reelection to his present position as .lodge of the Court of Appeals, appears in this issue of the News. Judge Settle needs no introduction to the Democratic voters of this Judicial district. The election does not come off until the first Monday in August next, when the Democratic primary will be held to make nomination in the party for this position. At present there are two candidates seeking the honor at the hands of the party, the present incumbent Judge Settle and Judge Hanosn, of Henderson. Moth are capable men, but Judge Settle lays claims to the office because of his long experience on the Court of Appeals bench, having had twelve years experience with that tribunal and being the present Chit f Justice. Judge Settle was at Hardinsburg a few months ago mingling with his constituents, and promises to visit Clovorport and vicinity in the near future. The News feels that this election will pass off quietly and that the Democtats will choose the man they want to fill this important place. it CHRISTMAS ISSUED EVERY WEDNESDAY CLOVERPORT, KY BANKING CLUB AND YOU GET JOIN IT V WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 19, 1917 A BANK BOOK .

Differing altogether from recent patriotic campaigns, the Christmas Membership Drive Is a campaign for Alpeople rather than for money. though the principal memberships to be sought are the $1 and 2 clashes, the real purpose behind the drive Is to enroll a huge civilian army to spur the morale of our soldiers by pledging to the cause the hearts and minds of 15,000,000 Americans back home.

To every member will go a Red Cross service flag. The flag has a blue border and a white field. In the center Is a Red Cross, indicating that one member of the household, where the flag hangs, belongs to the Red Cross. For each additional member in the household a Red Cross sticker will be given to be fastened in the flag's white field. If every member of the household joins, a white star will be furnished for pasting upon the flag's central cross. "The legion of workers required to enlist this great civilian army will exceed any similar force," says Drive Director Rose. "The amount of publicity of various types used will surpass that of any previous campaign. The purposes of the drive are more comprehensive and than those of the earlier campaigns since the inception of the war. "Success means driving home to Germany the fact that the American people are standing firmly behind the American government in the present situation. It means inspiration to our soldiers. It means practical aid on It means uniting the the battlefield. spirit of Christmas with the Red Cross. It means a tremendous drive toward victory." SUPPLYING ARMS AND LEGS. French mutiles (wounded soldiers who have lost either arms or legs) in France, Red Cross headquarters seeking assistance in securing artificial arms or legs.

Upon recommendation of this commission, medicines, surgical instruments, hospital supplies, bandages, bed linen, collodion, wax paper and iodine were shipped to Roumania by the American Red Cross. Later puttering became so acute in this unfortunate country that the American Red Cross War Council appropriated $1,518,000 for further relief. ALWAYS READY FOR ACTION. With all it war relief work, the American Red Cross is never caught unprepared for disaster or civilian relief work. This is illustrated by the fact that relief has been furnished in sixty-fou- r disasters thus far in 1917, exclusive of the help now being given to the sufferers In the Halifax calamity. A, notable example was that of the month of October when help and $125,000 was supplied by the American Red Cross to the 400,000 flood people made destitute In the flood at Tien-tain- , China. selection 1 Doll That Will Go To Dear old I Sleep.
