THE RED CROSS CAMPAIGN.
From Wednesday's Dailr.
We desire to commend those who
are so unselfishly working for the
Red Cross in this campaign as well
as have continuously striven to do
what they could in this direction all
along. Yesterday at their room a
large number of the membership
were eagerly working, doing" what
they could in making, arranging and
packirg thing3 for the shipments
which ere to go forward soon. Along
the streets we noticed the ladies
working, and the streets themselves
shows of their having been there.
Most every business house told of
their presence, some cards telling of
the advertising, urging to join the
society, which is good, while others
which have small crosses on, indica
tion how many have already joined
these are more affective in their solicitation.
Do your Xmas shopping
early - in the day.
It's much easier.
