So we must work to the utmost in our respective lines that the normal production may be maintained and our material needs may be met fully and promptly. We must save, economize, curtail, that home consumption may be reduced and our Individual resources be kept to their normal standard. For in doing both we will have more to offer our government, directly and indirectly; through personal sacrifice and Investment in war securities.

Remember that story which flashed across the cables some weeks ago about an American sentry having been killed by a German night patrol? Evidently they surprised and overpowered him. They might Just as easily have taken him prisoner. But they didn't. They cut his throat from ear to ear! Not a pretty story; not a story commending the much vaunted German kultur; not a story calculated to inspire confidence in the kaiser's closely following peace proposals. But Intensely illuminating! It was notice, served in the German way, or wnat our ooys in anaai may expect. It waa an early intimation of what Hun may be exthe pected to do if he ever puts his nailed heel and his mailed fist upon American shores. And in the usual Prussian way it was done In the dark!

By saving just a little less than a quarter of what we ate last year we can support those who are fighting our battles. And we can do it without stinting ourselves. We have only to substitute another food just as good. The Ccm of Plenty Corn is that food. There's a surplus of it. Providence has been generous in the hour of our need It has given us corn in such bounty as v.as never known before. Tons of corn. Train-load- s and of corn.
