Not fully realizing the time of morning and thinking the church bells were ringing the new year in and the old year out a good many of the iLhabi-tanof Cloverport were not as quick to rise on Tuesday morning at the fir.---t tap of a fire alarm, as they would have been at ony ether time. Tusedatf New nVlnoV. AKm.i Year's morning, Mr. and Mrs Ernest Wedding and their little son, Erneit C. Wedding, were awakened by the heavy smoke which was in their sleeping room and upon rising they discovered their entire cottage was fi'led with smokf. sounded immediately Mr. Wedding alarrr in the neighborhood and when people were fully aware that there was a fire, they rushed to the scene and soon found the fire was in the basemeut where the furnace was. But on ac count of the dense smoke, the only way mjf fight the fire was by tearing up the 11 ers In the dicing room and kitchen and by doing this and with the use of the patept fire extinguishers, the house WW saved as well as the other houses on the block, all of them being frutn --. structures and close to one another It is generally surmised that the ciuse of the fire was due to the naturul gas which was left burning in the furnace and during the night the pressure became very powerful. Six ears ago this same cottage, then occupied by Mr. and Mrs. Courtney Babbage, caught fire in the kitchen and was saved with ts i,0 ngnlnst wheatless nnd meatless dnys ns unnecessary sacrifices by the American public, are either mailctotis or emanate from personal Interest. dnys hnve, The results from mentle for the first time, given us sufficient reserves of ment to allow as to only partially comply with the quantities reqnested by the allies for shipments. This should be a matter of satisfaction to the entire American people, that their devotion In this matter now enables us to at least partially fulfill our duties to the allies in this rcRpect. As to wheat, we hnve already exported the whole of the surplus of the 1017 harvest, over nnd above the normal demands of our own population. It Is necesssry, therefore, for the food administration to restrict the export of wheat, so as to retain In the United States sufficient supplies to carry our own people until the next harvest Therefore all exports of wheat from now forward are limited entirely to volume of saving made by the Ameriof can people in their consumption wheat and wheat products. We are contlnnlng wheat shipments as far as our situation nllows hut even with all the conservation made we are still unable to load over 400,000 tons of foodstuffs urgently required by the allies. Statements of the character referred to given out for personal Interest are in little accord with the spirit being shown by millions of homes In the United States In an endeavor to aid the food administration In Its task.

Mr. Pierce is very sorry that he cannot tell auv more regarding the life at sea and the wonderful part the Navy is playing in the worlds war as he would like fully for his friends and comrades to know of the interesting side of navy life and of the great protection it is now rendering the American and allied people The sailor boy also puts the Red Cross work in this war as being a great stimulant for the boys at sea and says it is one of the many ways the boys use to judge the real patriotism of those who stay at home to keep the old ship a shore in running order and he says the opening of Xtnas boxes from the Red Cross would have been a great sight if the good people could have seen the boys opening them and exchanging their appreciation of same. Mr. Pierce says Cloverport sure looks good to him excitement is alright for the boys and they like it pretty well, but the old melody "There is no place like borne" is always ringing in theit ears. nt ess Was Sold, but Made the Journey Back to Old Master.

We wish our friends and patrons all the joy, sunshine and prosperity that the Divine Being will shower upon them, and may the last hours of 1918 melt away as peaceful as an innocent babe.

Many persons who live In the neighborhood of the crossing believe that Mrs. Stackman earns her monthly salary every day In heart ease for the mother, whose children must cross the railroad to and from school. The little watch house provides the children place between with a sort of hulf-wahome and school, and already this year they have taken advantage of the opportunity to stop and wurin themselves.

PART OF GENERAL'S Never BRAINS Good Artillery and Good Staff Officcrt Art Two Most Important Elementa of Succttt in Modern Fighting General Public Knowa Little About Plact the Staff and Its In Army. It is Important thnt America should understand from the beginning the role of the staff olllcer in the present wur. This role, though has been, and is, obscure to the general public. Yet, given u sufficient Infantry, the two BMvt Important elements of success in modern fighting are good artillery and good stuff officers. Fruuce lost many brave lead ers In the first mouths of the wur, nnd It wus consequently only after a greut effort tbut the vurlous units were uble to develop In certain sion, wll demand from hit stnff. In writing, a statement of the exact situation ef hit own nnd the enemy's forces. This statement will be bated not only on documents, but on an examination by ttnff officers of tb ground llself. After hearing the opinion of his chief of stuff mid of the head of the department of operations, the general will take bis decision, for w hich he alone Is responsible. He will then assemble bis staff, and explain to the entire body his general plan, thus avoiding repetition, misapprehensions nnd the loss of time. Each officer knows what Is expected of him. He is rendy to do his part without further delny. And what. Anally, are the personal qualities which are to he expected of a good staff olllcer? In the first place, he must be nble to nnderstnnel not only his general but the troops. His own personality must be abdicated. He must put nil his strength, both physical nnd moral, nt the service of othto learn ers. At all timet should animate him ; the least carelessness or Ignorance on his part would be a crime which might cost the lives of a great many of his com- rades. He should be modest nnd discreet, speedy, enlm nnd methodical, keeping the same anonymity in the little circle of the staff thnt the private keeps In the hnrd-worklnelenr-hende- ranks. Mutt Efface Himself. In his relations with his Immediate superiors he should be deferential, frank, sincere and loyal. After having contributed nil he enn to the study of any question, after having expressed his personal opinion with perfect freedom, but with modesty and measure nnd never except when It Is asked for then he must loyally accept the decision made, nnd work with nil his heart to give It success, even though It be contrary to his personal Judgment. He must endeavor nt all times to he cheerful nnd confident, contributing thus to thnt mental relaxation so Indispensable nt certain times, which Is only possible In an atmosphere of gnyety nnd faith. In his relations with subordinate commnnders he must be deferential nnd sincere, seeking to win their confidence by showing them respect and devotion. Ho will at no time nnd under no circumstances seek to put himself ahead of his general or behave 's in a way which might injure the authority. When he feels that an order Is being badly Interpreted he should point out tba mistake to tho officer who Is responsible, but ho should never seek to correct It hini-fjHis reports should be unflinchingly honest, confining themselves to what is Important, nnd so justly couched that they might be read even by the person I hoy concerned, frank anel open, stating facts, not Impressions, always affirming, never insinuating. Bravery and Coolness. During battle the stuff officer should at all times be bruve, without hesiAlways tation, but without boldness. keeping a cool head, nnd using it, if necessary, to order. und to carry out his general's will, of which he Is iu some sort the iucur-natloHe may be called upon to sacrifice his life.

These men should be absolutely hupregnuted They with their general's mutuality. should be able to replace him lu un emergency without disconcerting results. To the chief of stuff Is permanently delegated the general's own signature, to be affixed by him at discretion to all pupera containing neither prulse nor blame, decisions nor principles. The work of the stuff Is divided between four depart incut s : One charged with keeping for the geuerul uu account of all means In men, guus, etc., ut his disposition, uud with seeing to the various ueeda of the troops.

Everything In Writing. It la the geuerul, then, wbo takes the decision, but it Is the staff which presents to him, after careful examination und study, the facta of the situation, uud It Is the staff which attends to the carrying out of the general's orders. There are certain axioms to be followed by staff officers In this work, which are the result of Always put evpainful experience.

And in the obscure bnt essential work of bis office he should work ceaselessly to grasp the mind and will of his general, uniting his own will with that of his comrades, nnd aigor-ousl- y excluding all temptations to become envious, or to push himself forward. The officers of one staff are like the cells of a single brain, and the part which each ono plays In the elaboration of the single Idea may not be defined. Above everything else, the staff officer must be Immutably confident In the final victory. It is an old military saying that those who do not believe In the victory ure not capable of organizing it.

EMPEROR WICKEDLY DECEIVED YOU. Comrades In war, you have taken an oath of allegiance to your Hag. Put the emperor, too, took an oath at ihe beginning of his niin, an oath of allegiance to the German constitution. The confederation which forms the German empire wns established according to tids constitution, "TO proTHE UNITED PROVINCES AND THE LEGAL RIGHTS THEREOF, AMD TO PROMOTE THE WELFARE OF THE GERMAN PEOPLE." To guard It is the foremost, Imb ed the only, duty of tin Germnn emperor, If this purpose cannot he accomplished without war, then the eOJTV ror may declare war, bur not until then. But the emperor wickedly, wantonly, by deceiving the German people, by misrepresenting facto and by forging official documents, by breaking sacred treaties which he a3 the defender of justice should have observed, has overthrown Belgium, declared war on Russia, France and Serbia, and has thereby violated the laws of justice and tha constitution; has hurled the German empire dow-- i to ruin and has wrecked the welfare of th; Gerrtan people. The oath which you have taken means allegiance merely to an emperor who is the protector of the Oar man people, the guardian of th- Ir constitution, the true preserver of their welfare; It does not mean allegiance to burglars, murderers, rascally dimnineri for greedy cannon makers. Pat.you took no oath against the German people whom it was this emperor! duty to protect; whom you must BOW protect without him and againsl him, a miserable wretch who betrays his country In the hour of greatest danger, who either from stupidity or from cowardice works ugiilnst the good of his people.

For they know very well that the hour of reckoning has struck for them when they can no longer suppress the truth beneath their martial law, and trample freedom in the dust.
