ENTHUSIASTIC Y. M. C. A.
MEETING AT LOUISVILLE
From Wednesday's Daily.
Last evening with the big seven
passenger car Henry McMaken, took
Mr. C. A. Rawls Mr. and Mrs. E. II.
Wescott, Mesdanies W. Baird, Lillian
Caldwell and Don, York to Louisville,
where they were . working for the
Y. M. C. A. War Work fund. Louis
ville willing to more than meet the
crowd from here half way, had ar
'vx ranged to close the business houses,
and turned out en masse to do their
bit for the boys at the front. The
meeting was called to order, by Mr.
Rawls, and a Very nice program was
first rendered, Mr. Don York being
the first for a solo, after which Mrs.
Lillian Caldwell gave a violin solo,
and this was followed by a reading
by Mrs. P3ird and concluded "by a
solo by Mrs. E. H. Wescott. The en
tire program was of such excellence,
that it would be difficult to select
one as better than another, or they
were all the best. This 'program
put the audience in good humor, and
the house was crowded, with the
people of the citj', the school child
ren and the adjacent farming com
munity. After the program had
been concluded. Mr. rtawls spoke on
the objects of the meeting and of
what success he was meeting at
other places, arid asked for contri
butions to the fund which was re
sponded in a most generous manner.
The amount for Louisville precinct
and city being $295.00 of this -there
,were $225.00 subscribed ' last even
ing, and the remainder they feel will
be secured today. After the meet
ing had been concluded, a large
number of small 1 boys came up.anfl
asked if they could not give fifty
cents each for lb.eV.fund and i this
neeting with the spirit of the. occa-
fion, they affixed their names to the
roll, and thus increased the amount,
both in funds and patriotic enthus
iasm. C. E. Noyles is the chairman
for that precinct, and Paul Fitzger
aid was selected for the secre
tary of the meeting. It is felt that
the amount will be over subscribed
at Louisville as they are feeling
very patriotic and are desirous of
giving to a good cause.

Dr. G. II. Gilmore, was in the city

incidents which are constantly oc

some and disloyalty of others, we
were more than pleased, when he
expressed himself, that there are
some who, will have to face some
stern eventualities, for disloyal atti

tingency that when it has determined
that one is disloyal to the country
which has made him a home and
raff guarded it as well as him, mak

the almost abject slavery in the old
country, and then to have the per

means a traitor, as stern treatment
should be meted out as the military

VAMPIRES LOOT HIS AUTO.
From Monday's Daily.
Last Friday evening Lee Fickler
was driving along near Mynard,
when something went wrong with
his 6ar, and he was not able to run
it any farther.
Relying on an implicit faith in
the human race, he left the car
where it was, thinking it was as safe
as any politicians good name, he
went home with the firm conscious
ness that the car would not be mo
lested. Guess at his surprise when
he returned the next morning, to
find, some vampire in human shape
had skinned the car, taking three
of the tires from the car, and prob
ably would have taken the fourth
one had not some one came along
and frightened them away.
The man who would do that, is
unsafe for a neighbor, and if we
knew of a man like that in our
neighborhood, we would always want
a lock on our chicken coop door.
This characteristic, in a man is
what makes criminals, and the man
who" would do a trick like that
would take your life blood, as read
ily if he thought he could get by
with it. You have got to be honest,
if you expect to have the respect of
jour neighbors, and unless you are
honest with yourselves, the civiliza
tion is in danger of being lost.

Small gains have been reported

On the Asiago plateau, the enemy
has wgft with several severe revers

forces crossed the stream and es
