AVOCA RIGHT 'IN IT'
IN HELPING OUT RED
From Wednesday's laily.
One of the most enthusiastic Red
Cross meetings that has yet been held
in Cass county took place last even
ing at Avoca, when a car of the Red
Cross representatives from this city
visited at Avoca and laid the appeal
for funds for the aid of the army and
navy sick and wounded before the pat
riotic people of that community. J. P.
Falter, chairman of the boosting com
mittee, and W. A. Robertson and J.
M. Robertson, of this city, were
among those in the party. The meet
ing was addressed briefly by C. E.
Tefft. of Weeping Water, who laid
before his auditors the situation as it
was &t present and the great need for
immediate response on the part of
the American people to protect Amer
ican lives in the great world war. As
a result of the meeting there was a
splendid boost given the work when
in twenty minutes there was raised
$750 of the $1,220 which Avoca pre
cinct is expected to raise for the Red
Cross. This $750 came from those
who were in attendance at the meet
ing and the great majority of the resi
dents of the precinct are yet to be so
licited for their contributions. From
this showing Avoca will more than
reach the amount assigned them as
the workers there are heart and soul
in the boosting of the Red Cross cam-
naitrn. The showing made so far is
one that every resident of that com
munity can feel proud of and Avoca
is setting a great example for the rest
of the county to follow.

Copenhagen (Via London), June 10.
Throughout Germany, according to
reports here, all valuable grain crops
are burning up as they did in 1915 in
an unprecedented heat wave.
The prolonged drouth has not been
broken since early in May.
Berlin on Sunday experienced the
hottest June 17 on record in the
seventy years experience of the weath
Tropical temperatures were also re
ported everywhere west of the Oder
river. Many horses were scratched
on the opening day of the Hamburg
Derby week, because the trade, built
on a marshy corner moor, was baked
too hard for safety.
The effect of the drouth on grain
crops around Berlin, where only eight
millimetres of rain have fallen since
May 1, is described by a neutral who
arrived here on Friday as almost
The Sunday sermon writer in the
Berlin Kreuz Zeitung, who recently in
dulged in a startling blending of re
ligion and politics, declared on Sun
day that the drouth was sent as a
punishment for the sins of the people
for listening to the editors of irre
ligious newspapers, and asked how
long it would be before this divine
chastisement would bring the people
to a sense of their iniquities.
Venerable jokes about cabbage or
hay cigars have become a sad and
