Cantonments and "Over There" in the War Zone
A Few, Very Few Refused to Contribute
Something has happened. A simple
and thrilling thing that brings Home-
thing of real greatness into our lives,
humble as they may be.
It is the observance of our first Red
Cross Christmas. One cannot have even
the thought of its appropriateness and
its significance in this world of an-
guish witnout having touched the high
est thoughts of nil the world—that
which was given on the birthday we
celebrate—"Behold I bring you good
tidings of groat joy which shall be to
all people"; ami that which was ex-
pressed in the Rod Cross Treaty made
by nations, which established that in
warfare, the sick and wounded of the
enemy snould be sacred to the Red
This is a Christmas when we cannot
sec our new young soldiers, strong
and straight of back, without vision
ing those others whom war has made
helpless. We cannot see the happiness
of our cnildren without thinking of
those little ones in Europe who have
starved to death. Perhaps we cannot
deck our children's Christmas trees
without remembering that 11c in whose
honor they are was a "man of sor
rows and acquainted with grief."
In the Red Cross campaign for 10,
000,000 new members during the week
preceding Christmas there is scope for
all our tenderness, all our richest im
aginings, nil our new-born power of
simplicity of heart, all our posibili
tics of service.
The Hod Cross Chapters have asked
all members of the American Red
Cross to take part in a simple cere
mouy on Christmas Kve the placing
of a lighted candle hi the window,
shining through n Red Cross service
Hag on the window pane. This flag is
a piece of white, transparent paper,
blue-bordered, with the si^n of the
Red Cross, five inches square in the
center, and smaller crosses to be ad-
ded for each of the household who is
a member of the lied Cross. It is an
expression of scr\ ice in Tin-, unexftm
pled time—a symbol so instinctive
that the Red Cross will glow from the
windows of our homes over the length
and breadth ot the lend, sending out
the Christmas message to the world,
and telling not only the passer-by,
but our own hearts, that just as our
boys and men nre finding new strength
in their new sacrifices, so rnav we.
through our new service.
About the Thrift and War Stamps-
Are Now On Sale at the
Local Postofflce
The sale of "thrift" and "war
savings stamps at the local postof
fice, started Inst week and the de
maud promises to increase steadily.
The "thrift" stamp costs 25 cents,
a card containing hi spaces goin
with first stamp purchase. When filled
out, the cost is $4.00. For an added
IJ cents, in December or •lanunrv, after
card is duly filled out, you can so
cure a "war-savings" stamp. With
the first of these stamps von get a
war-savings certificate, which holds
20 stamps. If filled out with the 20
stamps, the certificate in five vears
from January I, 1918, can be cashed
ill for $100. It costs you only $K2.40,
it the war savings stamps are bought
at $4.12 each. This brings interest at
the rate of 4 per cent, compounded
quarterly. In February these stamps
will cost $4.1.'I, and they will increase
in cost one cent each month through
One should keep war savings stamps
for five years to do Cade Sam tlx
most good, but if one must cash them
sooner, one will be paid interest at the
rate of about 3 per cent a year on
what he bought. If he does not buv
twenty $"> stamps by January I, 1911),
lie will receive the same interest on
what he does buy. No one can buv
more than $100 worth at one time.

tree's home at (luthrie has been un

With the canvass still uncompleted, there is every indication that Hen-
nessey will complete its quota without difficulty. Those ^rho have been
overlooked in the drive by the various committees can make their contri-
bution to Chairman K. K. Watson, at the Kd. Hoekaday Hardware Store,
at any time. Others who have promised donations to canvassers may do
likewise, if more convenient.

refuse to contribute. Those returns are yet incomplete. The committee
is contemplating also the publication of the list after all committees have
completed their work.

ACT I.—Bessanio loves Portia,
whose father has died, leaving a will
stipulating that who weds his daugh-
ter must choose from three caskets, in
which are placed Virgil, Ciscero and
Caesar examinations, respectively;
and in that examination which lie
draws, must pass and make an aver-
age of 95 per cent.
As Bassanio is a football fiend and
not a Latin shark, he realizes his dif-
ficulty. But his friend, Antonio, helps
him by arranging to rent a pony from
Shvlock, the stipulation being only
that if it is not returned. Antonio
shall forfeit a pound of his hair.
ACT II.—Portia and Nerrisca dis-
cuss Portia's suitors. Portia at length
admits that she hopes that Bassanio
will be he successful one. Bassanio
takes the examination in the presence
of Miss Thrudiee. (Also the ponv)
ACT III.—Shvlock seeks the hand
of his rich ward, Jessica. He is refus-
ed with gusto. Antonio, assisted by
Launcelot Gobbo, elopes with Jessica.
ACT IV.—Bassanio learns that he
has passed the examination. Launcelot
tells of Antonio's elopement and the
impending danger to his hair.
ACT V.—At the football game. An-
tonio is disabled and arrested by the
policeman whom Shyloek brings. An
tonio is taken to trial, and the younp
lawyer (Portia) from Bellario, by a
clever turn of the law, saves Anton
io'fl hair and thus the success of the
great Thanksgiving game is assured.
