AN APPEAL FOR CLOTH
ING FOR BELGIUM RELIEF
THE DESTITUTE OF BELGIUM
AND NORTHERN FRANCE
NEED YOUR SPARE
Back of the German wall that has
hemmed in JJelgium and part of
Northern France, ton million human
beings look to us for clothing, as
well as food. We, who are well
clothed, can hardly appreciate in
what dire need these people are for
lack of necessities. Stocks o'f cloth
ing and raw material are long since
exhausted. There are no imports
other than those the Commission for
Relief in Belgium has been permit
ted to make, and these never have
been sufficient. T!i3 world is now
short of both clothing and raw ma
terial, so the Commission can no
longer purchase what is needed. But
YOU can GIVE it.
Every household in the land ha--some
spare clothing, worn or out
grown, of little i:e here, but des
perately needed by the destitute
there. This extract frcm a letter
if a well-to-do lady of Brussels
shows the conditions exactly:
"Perhaps y?m will laugh when
vou hear that I wear a cloak made
frcm my husband's garde civique
overcoat, a waist made from his
football shirt, aud a skirt made o!
i dyed bed sheet.
Mother has a suit made of the
table-cloth, J. and M. have cloakf
made of woolen blankets, and S. '
Iress made cf burlip. But all thi;
:s only amusing in comparison witb
be wretchedness of the population.
After ail, v.e remain calm and con
fident of victory."
A recent Brussels advertisemnei
ays: "I will give up to 125 francs
($25.00) for now or worn beC
sheets." There is an immediate
need for every sort of garment,
blankets, sheets, and shoes.
The verj wonderful results oi
tho clothing campaign of Marcl
assisted in helping to meet the de
mands; but when we realize that
here are ten million inhabitants in
the occupied regions, most of whom
must look to the outside world foi
protection against the rigors of
winter, it is seen that we cannot
end too much. As long as the wat
lasts Belgium and occupied France
mist deprmd chiefly on America
for aid. To insure the steady sup
ply of garments which are so much
needed, we appeal again to the gei
erosity of the American public to
give, and give largely.
THE EELGLiN RELIEF CALL.
The Cass County quoto for the
Belgian Relief Call will amount to
IS SO pounds, and the Plattsmouth
mare of this quoto will be twenty

that its profits ran as high S 1,500

Literature Among the Doctors.
The New York Medical Journal
deigns to enter the field of literary
criticism via the "Nine Humorous
Tales" of Anton Checkov. In review
ing this volume the medical authority
"For many years France led the
way in short story writing, though
many of them resembled delicate wa
ter color sketches having an unanalyt

American authors, who have equaled
the French, but in a different way.
Their short stories are like powerful
sketches in black and white. . .
The inspiration of these profundities
lies in the fact that Checkov was once
a doctor. This explains Checkov's pe
