Last Monday, 'March 17,) was tho
festival of St. Patrick, tho patron
mint of Ireland. 'Uieio ve e little
or no celebration here or anywhere
in this western country, as the peo
ple were deprived of tho imiit-pens-able
and much needed fnciliii. to
make the celebration a success, and
instill life into the proceedings.
Ltisfrcfleek I noticed a treatise in
Capper Weekly on St. Patrick
wliiih 1 did not relish and made me Hot. The writer slated that
M. Patrick was born to.'ltf year. ago,
.'i the little village of Neniphlhur,
r.-.u- Glastonburry, England. I infer
f'"in that tle treatise wn.s written
I'v an KfiVgllshmnn who is prouo to
' c ive, monopolize and grab on to
. honors. &r every thing. It is al-
.:r si natural nd customary that
vlitu'vr a poison Is born their wish

i there (if at all possible.) So if
i. Patrick was English he probably

1 admit thut St. Patrick was in
England as tho great and noted
apo-tlc accompanied by four or five
prominent Irishmen went over thero
sometime in tho fourtll century (I
di".renicmber the year or month they
left witli the great object of conver
ting them to Christianity.) Their
tak was no smnll one, abounding in
complications and instead of accom
p'ixhing their object in the specified
or scheduled time it took them
double the time anil then some most
of it all being rough sailing, but St
Patrick and the other gentlemen he
had along were characteristic of
perseverance and self determination
they did not leave until they were
satisfied they made a good job of
them. Owing to their indcfntagablo
exertions as well as self sacrifice,
tl.cir health gave way and soon
alter arriving in Ireland. In con
elusion I wish to impress it on any
one in doubt, that St. Patrick was
Irish to the back bono and was proud
of it too, and so am I.

Red Cross Knitters Attcnt(onTrf
The task of knitting articles fo4'.
our soldiers and sailors has been well
done and finished. Hut tho Hctl
Cross is now fuced with another
need, that of the destitute war suf
fering women and children. A re
cent cablegram says "the need is
great to a degree Hint few if any of
those at home could possibly realize.
1'itablo stories have been Hashed
across the ocean of the thousands
upon thousands of little children who
arc barefooted and barelegged whi'e
snow and ice are upon the ground.
To meet this emergency it lias been
determined by tho National Hod
Cross authorities in Washington to
have knitted up as soon as possible
for these little folks the yarn in the
hands of the government belli for
the use of the Ked Cross. Enough
yarn to complete 170 childrcns
sweaters, 75 chlidrens, stockings, and
7(5 children mulllers has been shipped
75 childrcns mufllcrs has been ship
ped to Webster County Chapter. In
structions also have been sent, but
these instructions are in no way ob
ligatory, any good direction may be
used for the articles required. Also
any color yarn may be used. Chap
ters are also instructed to accept all
knitted articles from wool donated
by knitters themselves, even if such
articles vary in color and weight.
This is an appeal to the women
and children of America to again
assist the women and children of tho
less fortunate countries. And we
trust our knitters wil take up this
new task with enthusiasm.

The state of Nebraska may spurn
two or three cool millions. The fed
eral government has offered four and
one-half millions for road building
with the provision that the state raise
uu equal amount. Nine million dol
lars would build a considerable
slretch of better roads but the Neb
raska legislature may Jcci'dc the
smaller melon has a sijYcetcr flavor
tian the larger one, says the Stato
Journal. Altho four and one-half
millions are to be stacked in front of
Nebraska, there is no need of calling
the entile bet unless tho people fear
that the government is to get out of
tho road building game before anoth
er biennium rolls along. Tho state
has declared that it is playing tabic
stakes. It may call with whatever
a in the stack thai the legislature
puts in tho game. From present ia-1
dications, that stack will maintain
something more than a million but
considerably under :t million and a
Members of the house committee
on roads who have, labored , day and
night for weeks in the coun'trffction
of tho state highway bill, a'r'ci.not of
their own olilion to inject' 'amend
ments that will increase the amount
of tho sale's table stakes. Tho bill
calls for a one mill levy. Chairman
McLaughlin figures that this should
raise approximately $1,080,000 for
tho biennium. And unless tho meas
ure is amended, the government will
bo required to take back something
like $3,120,000. The impression has
gained some cii dilation that the state
is compelled to make a four mill levy
to meet the government apprecia
tion and that unless it meets the
whole, it will bo loft to hold the sack.
The government makes the provision
that the stato may accept all or any
pail of tho appropriation. Tho one
condition being that the state raise
within its boundaries, an amount ex
actly equal to the federal gift.

From a War Corre
spondent's Notebook
Pigeons also helped to play an active
pnrt in tho war, Thoy wtro used as
messengers and in many Imtiiticea
they proved helpful. In one mo a
hnttnllon ot troops was surrounded by
the enemy for five days. Important
messages were fastened to tho birds
and they were turned loose, and they
carried their messages In safety thus
keeping headquarters posted upon con
ditions. Of course, relief came, and
tho Germans were driven away.
A case is on record whero a pigeon
from tho lort at Lucy nindo hotter
time than an nerophinc. Both depart
ed nt tlio same time, but the bird nr
rived at the objective point three min
utes abend of the aeroplane.
In many cases where troops were
cut off from communication because
they had advanced so rapidly, pigeons
wore used with marked success.
The pigeons hnd rings on their legs
hearing the U. S. mark. They were
kept cooped up in a cage that hnd n
rod, blue, or some other colored glass
window In It. When let loose they
would fly high in the air and continue
until they discovered tho same color
they hnd left. They flow from live to
twenty miles on an average. The ac
tivity of those birds was on the In
crease as the war progressed.
It would bo pretty hard to estimate
the number of candles that were used
throughout Franco during tho war, but
one tiling Is certain and that Is nearly
evory man, woman, nnd child put tho
candle to good uso nearly every night,
especially during the last year. Those
living In Paris or some other city or
town near tho front would light their
candles as soon as tho electric llhtB
went out when an nlr raid alarm was
sounded nt night. Of eourso tho'so
who could afford tho electric flashers
had them. But there was so much
trouble about getting batteries, and
having batteries that would work, thnt
tho little old caudle was tho one thlnp
counted upon for n light In an emer
gency. But lights of no kind could b
used at the front only In dugouts or
under cover. But when thoy cculd be
used candles were the things wanted
and they were wanted badly and for-
tunntcly the American army was well
supplied with them.
It was a- most Interesting sight see
ing searchlights flashing signals at
night to pilots in aoroplnnos. These
electric flashers were located right out
in tho open so tho aviators would
have no trouble In getting tho silent
messages that were Hashed through
tho night.
Thoy are operated llko a tc-legrnph
Instrument nnd words nro spoiled with
dots and dashes. A strong light nnd a
powerful lens nuilco It easy for the
nipssngo to bo read at a distance cf
several miles.
Up in the Tool sector, where the
Ighly-nlnth, or the Nubraskn. division
fwis located so long. I first saw these
'-lletit messengers at work. Two sig
nal stations weio located at a tow
miles hark of tho lines. ' As soon as
Jho sun went down tho Germans be
gan sending tip rocVcts. Then our
boys bcnan to nend up star shells and
ilxnal mckcts. On or two. big guns
Jienan to boom, and then tho powerful
'lights began to wink and blink out
messages to tho American aviators
who wero on duty Mk up In the nlr.
With tho rorkcts pjlnt'ng the heavens,
tho star shells bursting, and tho silent
oloctrlc niepfcftges being flashed In
rapid succession It nindo an Impres
sive acono,
Tho American horse played a most
important pnrt In tho European war,
and ns a result forty-five thousand ot
them were killed upon the battlefields.
I hnvo seen bnttlefie'ds where (lend
horses were lying about In scores,
mo3t of them having been killed from
shrapnel or high explosives. And In
variably tho roads lending to tho
trenches wero strewn with theso dead
nnlmals. Whenever there wns tlmo to
bury tho dead horses tho soldiers
would get busy nnd do It as quickly
as possible, but in most cases tho ani
mals wore qulto badly decayed before
thoy wero planted, because It was nec
essary to earo for the dead seldlers
It wns a common sight to seo a
squad of soldiers wcnrlng gas mnsks
ns they burled horses, so strong nnd
foul was the stench thnt It would have
been almost impossible to handle them
any other wny.
nut there must hnvo been noarly ns
many horses and mules killed from
gns as there -wero killed from artillery
It Is truo thnt thero wero gns masks
for horses and mules nt tho front, hut
there wore times when theso masks
could not bo put on soon enough. In
ulfovcnt tho hostlers and the "mule
Bkhjners" headed tlio animals away
from tho gas and turned them loose.
Some would ranke a' good "get-away"
and would he gathered up tho next day,
while others would linger in the gas
zona only to wander oft and die.
