Chairman Cass County.
We cannot too strongly impress upon
you and your people the fact that there
must be no slackening of effort in the
Liberty Loan campaign on account of
the publication of the news of Germany's
acceptance of peace terms. It would be
nothing short of a tragedy in American
historv if the loan should fail. Our task
is not by any means finished and Ger
many is watching the results of our loan
just as closely as ever. . The facts are
that the money which is being subscrib-kr0;x
ed to this loan has already been con
tracted and actually spent by the Gov
ernment. Furthermore our Govern
ment has enormous outstanding obliga
tions yet to be met and unless every unit
in the loan organization of the tenth dis
trict meets its full obligations we may
properly be classed quitters.
Give this telegram widest possible pub
licity and wire us immediately to the ef
fect that there are no quitters in your

while it was doubted whether the
crowd would all come back, for the
roar of the guns, was like the battle
of "Hull Hun." It is reported that
they had a full truck load of squir
rels. some of which were killed when
alive and some dead ones were
slaughtered. Paul Sitzman was the
nilot of the boat which took the
party to the hunting grounds, and
hrouiiht them home again. There
was a calf in the woods, which had
and both Paul and
ho faw it while
running, thought it a jack rabbit,
and tried to get its scalp, but were
not able. A squirrel climbed high
into a tree, and Tony Koubek, think
ing maybe he could coax the animal
down with some acorns, held them
:.hft and kept saying, come pretty
squirrel, but he would not come.
Just then Harry Kuhney getting a
bead on his sruirrelhip. touched the
trigger, and the squirrel with its
feet spread out, came sailing through
the air. Frank Sitzman thought it
a flying squirrel, and after it had
lit on the ground, ran and fired a
shot into it. decL.ring he had killed
it. lie evidently thought it was
trying to fly away, for after it had
hit the ground and he had shot
another charge; in the dead carcass,
he kept shouting "I killed it! I killed
it." Everyone gave Frank the horse
laugh, telling him it was dead be
fore it hit the ground.

was one of the finest ever served
anywhere, everything possible was
conked and served just to a turn,
which was sure enjoyed by the
crow dof hungry hunters. After the
dinner the men went in for pitch,
and as Mr. Peil is the champion
pitch player of that section the town
boys had but little show. On the
way home the truck came to a hill,
and as Frank Sitzman was changing
gears, on the truck, they come up
with a jerk, which nearly threw the
crowd out of the car. Paul Sitzman
thinking the cor was going to run
away wanted to jump out, and said
he had been in one run-a-wsy in the
'obi country and did not want any
more experience. Harry Kuhney
said "Fxcept you abide in the ship
you cannot be saved". So assured
Paul, that is Paul Sitzman, remain
ed aboard. They arrived safely
home in the evening and were well
satisfied with their day's pleasure.
Those to enjoy the occasion were:
Paul Sitzman. Harry Kuhney, Kay

daughters, Dorothy and Violet, Fred

IN THESE DAYS OF INFLUENZA.
- Among the golden rules for the
days of influenza one of the most
important is to avoid constipation
and keep the bowels active. A daily
hoewi movement increases our re
sisting powers and lends us the most
substantial aid in combating the
disease. Triner's American Elixir
of Bitter Wine is the most reliable
remedy for this purpose. It is not
onl very efficient, but also very
palatable, which makes it much su
perior to the common laxatives. You
will get it at all drug stores, Price
$1.10. Other remedies which should
be always at hand in your home are
Triner's Cough Sedative for colds
and coughs( prices 25 and 50 cents
at drug stores, by mail 35 and CO
cents), because a cold may esily de
velop into pneumonia, and Triner's
Liniment (prices 35 and 65 cents at
drug stores, by mail 45 and 75 cents)
which relieves the pains of rheuma
tism, neuralgia, lumbago, etc. Joseph
