there is a woman candidate, and in
as much as there is a great shortage
of man power, or producers, at. this

be the patriotic thing to elect Mrs

with General Crowder that every
able bodied man should either work

it seems t; me that it would be good
policy to place .Mrs. Shannon in that

to Lester Dalton, who is in France,
was in the yard, and thinking to
get in shelter of the house from the
driving rain, backed up under the
back porch and chanced to step on
an outside cellar door, which gave
way, and lie was precipitated in the
cellar below. A few minutes later
Willis R. Holmes was going to the
Dalton home for something or other
and when he was nearing the cellar
entrance, he heard a noise, and
he knowing there was considerable
fruit in the cellar, thought it was
someone stealing the fruit, so he
picked up a club and down he v ent,
only to find the horse standing there,
as quiet and as gentle as could be.
He secured the neighbors and tempt
ed to get the animal out, but he re
fused, and made that his abiding
place until this morning, when the
sunshine and thoughts of green grass
brought him forth o. k. No damage
