Nestled a my rural country and district are, safely inland, where the real results of the war are and will be last and least felt, where resultant high prices and ''money getting" seem to somewhat overshadow the seriousness of the world wide situation and our duties, I am impressed th it there should be greater willingness to volunteer and less effort to escape the draft, by our citizenship and more active and earnest with the government. I think it is, by far, wiser and safer for us to promptly aid our allies, possibly preventing their assault upon or invasion and a subsequent of our own country, which is now and will continue a most prize to a bankrupt and hungry world. At least, I believe our country and every citizen should throw full weight into the struggle thereby finally securing and supporting real "Peace for All," founded on "Punishment of Wrong and Eternal Right" not ''German Might, "and France and Belgium will be indemnified. War to us has heretofore largely meant oppression, invasion, violence to our persons and homes and real contact with the enemy. The United States of today is too big for this. As with the individual, so is the nation; the smaller units make and characterize the greatest one, and increase with position, accomplishments and possessions. Today, in our national grandeur, we are charged with corresponding responsibilities to our strength, enlightenment and blessings, and we undoubtedly lead the world; and, in a way, are largely able to secure its ultimate preservation or to permit continued chaotic struggle. As for me, rather than chance or wait, 1 am willing to meet the "selfmade" enemies of all uunkind on their own grounds, those brutal invaders of Belgium and France, the assailants and liendish persecutors of defenseless women and children, the desecrators of homes and happy places, men with orders from a military genius, but without pity or personal honor and thirsting for human blood. All through time, virile men have offered their lives in defense of their countries, but now is an opportunity to tight offensively for the preservation of our do-fe- newly-aligne- d g The Y. W. C.

I Your Xk Country Needs Your Help! 1 Louisville Comes Out By It Knapp. Peesident Baby Knit For the Soldiers I J for the eternal principles of riht of America and freedom; and, not least, and ultimate triumph to pay debt of honor to K twice. To what extent I have labored and succeeded, and to what extent I am useful and needed, at home, you know. I have spent much time and energy in attaining my present profes sional and business status. What there is for me to do elsewhere, now, to best serve my country, I know not; hut, I am willing to go anvwhere, at any time, and in any capacity, because feel that no ablebodied man is entitled to live in our country who will not tight for it, unless clearly and honestly exempted. I have so advised all within the draft who have appealed to me, and they are many. Further, you honored me when a youth of 25 with the highest office in your county, and have since twice elected me Commonwealth's Attorney, and I have repeatedly and continuously been the recipient of confidence and honors at your hands, and you have denied me nothing for which I have asked. If I should not encourage Therefore, though I action and be an example, who should have four years to serve, appreciate your kindness, am successful professionally and in business, and love the society of friends, enjoy the comforts of home, and duly appreciate the horrors and discomforts of modem warfare and service, I feel that I owe it to you, to myself, to discharge this paramount and plain duty. While not exactly "physically fit," I am with no dependants; and, notwithstanding I am over and have personal ties and duties which strongly apthe age peal otherwise, and real friends who so advise, I cun reach but one conclusion. If old women and men, children and maimed soldiers can, do and should run things at home, in Germany, when I believe their government and principles are wrong, where is raj excuse or justification for "slacking," when I believe my government in right i Personal sacrifice shall begin with me and must continue with all, in reality, if duty is done and success is ours. When the death lists begin to come home, remember! I do not complain of a real lack of patriotism, but we are not alive to the demands of the hour, as are the coast and city dwellers, nor are we prepared for realizations that to me seem past due. When a youth I followed the recruiting officers six weeks to become old enough to volunteer. While I knew not when I joined what would happen, and though the service in the War was but a pleasant outing compared to real war, I propose to respond every time m country calls me, regardless of results or consequences to my personal welfare. If I desired money or so called honor, I would stay at home and continue to get some of both. But, if there is any man or boy who deserves honor and reward at the hands of his feilows, it is those who defend their principles, persons and property. Every person who, has furnished a boy should feel that it is to be a soldier, honorable to be a soldier's parent, it is as circumstances dictate. Those contribuprivate or officer, ting no boys or who arc unwilling to take a chance with their own lives, should at least, contribute honest home service and liberally in money. Even offering your all, which is the limit of individual human possibility, is but little when weighed against the mighty issues and numbers involved in this monumental and epoch making conflict. Generals and military force cannot win this war, even with plenty of men and munitions, unless they have the united support and cooperation of our great producing and creative citizenship in their business affairs and all make sacrifices and offer support in every day life. Therefore, having been identified with the State Militia, Naval Reserve Cruise and the Confederate Veterans Association in an honorary capacity; and, entertaining the convictions expressed, I follow the dictates of mv conscience and judgment and trust to your fidelity and knowledge of my purposes and record to appreciate ray action. The Commonwealth Attorneys of Kentucky recently elected me their .President. Knowing that I was going to leave, I tendered my resignation. They declined to accept it, expressing the purpose that 1, as the head of their organization should follow our flag. This touched me deeply; and, my mother, speaking of my brother having volunteered and gone over, in a letter from Frankfort today, said: "Of course I hate just as bad to see you go, and had intended writing you in regard to" same; but, since reading your letter and seeing how you feel, will only say, may God bless you and help you to do what you feel is right and your duty although it breaks my heart to think of giving you both up." I am satisfied with my course, regardless of anything that may hereafter befall me. I have offered to go directly to France, in any capacity; and, if this cannot be done, I am ready to serve anywhere assigned. Assuring you that my official, professional and business affairs will be in safe and efficient hands, I remain, Very sincerely, curity, homes and the-worl- Strong For Tanlac When Helps Him. the International Chick Association. For sheer modesty the baby chick producers of lhi country surely have any other class of businessmen backed off the map. The extreme timidity of these fellows is only exceeded by their desire to ste the chick linisness come to the top on its 011 recommendation. The discovery of chick shipping possibilities was not heralded abroad and advertised to the general public as a cpiick secret at so much per, as have been many so called poultry discoveries in recent years; in fact, the real discoverer of day old chick shipping did not realize that lie had discovered anything, at least he did not see, at the time, its great commercial possibilities and it remained for others todevelope baby chick shipping into a real industry The progress of the business from a small begining a few years ago is now marked by Ihe millions, in fact one of the largest of the hatcheries reports the shipment of a million and a quarter of baby chicks last year several are shipping from a quarter to half a mi lion chicks each ill a season, and scores of smaller hatcheries are producing and distributing numbers that vary from twenty five to fifty thousand in the months of April, May and June. Still there arc thousands upon thousands of people who do not know chicks can be purchased and shipped from a distance with safety. To bring about more efficient among baby chick men the International Baby Chick Association was organized, and the results have been most pleasing, as it has brought together the operators of hatwheries, both large and small. In meeting at the sessions of the American Poultry Association, the baby chick or hatchery men have come in contact with fanciers, poultry journal men, incubator and supply manufacturers, and this is bringing shout a bet ter mid rstanding among all interests as sociateil with Standardised p mltry. so that better CO operation for the benefit of the poultry industry as a whole mayr The w ide awake be effected has ceased to cov.plain that the hatchery hurts his business and he will this season offer baby chicks as well as hatching eggs.

Considering hh official position in the community and. the bright future he has before him in the business world, one would not think it hard for him to tind numerous reasons for not going to war but his unbounded patriotism and his love of country have proven the stronger and as he told a friend "he could not conscientiously tind a .single reason for not goiug'' hence he deserves the more credit.

Not until after several vain attempts, both in the United States and in Canada, did he MCCMd in netting himself straightened out on the lir:-- t quarter of the course wlile!' lie expects to lead to the of his desire for revenge. At the time of the murder of his cousin lie wni only eighteen and MMH for his vnrs. His father had been in business in Chicago since he had transplanted the family from the native heath In the county of Kent, ngtand, some yean before. Kent was also the ill fated nurse's home, mid :is a very smiill boy young Cnvell had an admiration and affection for his cousin, some ten or fifteen years his senior, that bordered almost on adoration. Rejected by Canada. Inexpressibly shocked by the news of his cousin's atrocious death, the boy immediately presented himself to the agents of the Canadian recruiting forces in Chicago for enlistment in the overseas service, but he was rejected on account of his age and size he was many pounds underweight. He even went to Canada and brought all the political Influence he could compass to hear In order to carry out his purpose, bet Rgaifl was turned down. No one could have hailed the en trance of America into the war with IPOra real joy than he. It would give him his long awaited opportunity to gain some KCMipCBM for the murder of his cousin, he thought. He was again doomed to disappointment. A ting officer told him that he was too small. Nothing daunted, he nir-rie- d his ease to Washington in person and the ma ter was placed before the war department through an influential army officer in Chicago. Permission was given him to volunteer in the signal corps, and this he did in Chicago last June. He has just been transferred to Camp Gordon us a member of the outpost company of the 317th signal battalion under Major Hemphill. Eagerly devoting himself to bis duties and apt to learn, he has been scheduled for the rank of top sergeant In his company. He also has developed his physique until now he is as hardy as the best soldier In the army. He hopes for a transfer to the nviutlon section, as it is the goal of his ambition to hurl bombs on the Bodies from the air. A visitor to Camp Gordon this week to see his son, Cavell's father called on Captain Allen of the outpost company and recited the story of Lawrence's long baffled determination of revenge, a thing the boy himself had been too modest to do. Like Older Sister to Him. The father said the lad had been brought up in the same house in Kent with Miss Cavell, and that her relationship to him was rather that of a devoted elder sister than of a cousin. "It matters not what branch of service I urn in," the boy told his father. "I shall Ha satisfied only when I have drawn blood for blood, and I pray God to live to see that day. I expect to. He will answer my prayer. "Kdlth was murdered without a hearing in cold blood by the kaiser. She was an English girl, and they sung the hate song over her dead body. I expect to sing the song of hate over the dead bodies of Germans. No sacrifice Is too greut, Ba punishment too severe, no hardship too trying; death Itself u coveted reward, Just so I am permitted to put bullets Into German hearts as that firing squad under or- tiers put them Into my cousin's heart T ...,r,u.uo I am in the war for shall accomplish it." Deeply grained as his hatred of the Teuton race had grown, Mr. Cavell said thut his son bad no quarrel with Individual (iermuns. Scores of them In Chicago, he added, had expressed to his family their horrified resentment of the execution of Miss Cavell.

The uniformity In the mans kept oti a particular farm generally is not given much consideration. There is satisfaction and convenience in having mares similar enough in type and action so (hut one can readily fill the place of nnotiicr at any kind of farm work. Such mares are especially desirable when it is necessnry to work three or four .ibreast.

If the mares resemble aBCh other and nre bred to the same stallion it will often be possible to sell Hie young horses us pairs, In which form they nenrly alwuys sell at a premium. The market for horses bred in this manner will not be overcrowded very soon, as readily will be attested by any one who has been confronted with ths dillicult task of purchasing from farmers mated pulrs of a certain type. Breed characteristics in .;ne bred or grade mares signify impressive ancestry and prepotency. Femininity of expression and conformation Is an indication of good breeding qualities. wii-'o- ia The near marc in this team, be- saBSS doing flora than enough work to pay tor lor food, has produced eleven live foals. Her offBpring have sold for good prices. Style, good disposition, quality, clean, flat bone, concave, open feet, strong constitution, good proportions, deep, roomy barrel; width across the hips, denoting a large pelvic arch, and well developed vulva and teuts are qualities especially desired In breeding mares. An inspection of the colts the mare produces is the best evidence of her worth as a brood mure. The length of usefulness as producers varies greatly with different mnres. Some will produce excellent colts when twenty-fiv- e years of age, but If they produce until they ure fifteen years old they do very well. Much depends on the Individuals uud the way they ure handled. Shy breeding mures are generally unprolituble producers.

CARE OF THE HUNTING DOGS Little Washing and Much Brushing Is Regarded Best for the Health of Any Canlna. and consequently the less washing the better the coat will be. The dog, however, must be kept clean. A good stiff brush vigorously and regularly applied will keep u pointer clean as a whistle, and the bristles act as- a fine tonic, stimulating the growth of the hair and keeping the skin underneath clean and healthy. For the setter's long coat the old English recipe is eggs rubbed in, allowed to dry and then brushed out again. The best combination is to use the whites for cleaning and to feed the yellows raw mixed up with bread or biscuits. This is the most effective use, for the whites contain no oil and make the cleaning easier, while the yolks are most valuable food. If the price of eggs, however, is prohibitive, cormneal (white cornmeal very finely ground Is the better) will answer the same purpose. - In the matter of grooming, says Out ing, a cardinal principal is expressed in the bench show handler's apothegm "little washing and much brushing." Soup and water are bad for any dog's coat. They wash away the naturul oils, making the hair dry and brittle, Ladies wore bustles. Operations were rare. Nobody swatted the fly. Nobody had seen a silo. Nobody had appendicitis. Nobody wore white shoes. Nobody sprayed orchards. Cream was 5 cents a pint. Most young men had "livery bills." Cantaloupes were muskuielons. You never heard of a "tin Lizzie." Milk shake was a favorite drink. Advertisers did not tell the truth. Nobody cared for the price of gasoline. Farmers came to town for their mail.

The effort to find fodder for animals has started the professors on many Doctor Investigations and Inquiries. Degen, director of the seed testing station in Budapest, claims to have discovered two valuable articles of fodder. He writes: "The searush (Bolboschaenus was known, as regards the' part above ground, as a fodder equal In value to straw. Recent experiments have, however, shown that the tubers growing on the roots underground are far more valuuble. They come very near to the horse chestnut In the amount of raw protein, raw fat and starch contents, without the bitterness. If they are used for the manufacture of spirits the wash, either wet or dried, can also be used for fodder. "The pond bullrush (Schnenoplec-tu- s .Incustrls) also contains a valuable" underground organ. The horizontal roots, containing a great quantity of starch, form a good concentrated fodder. If used In distilleries the wash is not so valuable as that from the searush. But In a time of need It is a raw materlul that can be used for various purposes." Milk famine confronts all Europe. The situation has long been bud, and 1i grows steadily worse everywhere. There Is constunt and Increasing conflict between the various state and municipal authorities dealing with the food question throughout (lerrnany.
