HELPING TO WIN THE WAR.
While it is true that the war wurk
aud the promotion of Liberty Loan,
Bed Cross and other campaigns direct
ly connected with rais'-ig and equip
piug our armie« and supplying them
ami our allies with the necessaries of
food, clothing, care and medical sup-
plies is the outstanding duty aud pur-
pose of all patriotic people and that
the success of these various activities
should engage our thoughts to the
exclusion of all selfish and abstract
purposes aud activities, it is also true
that we have many routine duties to
ourselves and to the state and uation
that in their way have a most impor-
tant bearing on the patriotic purpose
of winning the war.
It ia popular right uow to denounce
polities ami political activity as an
unnecessary and frivolous waste of time
and energy that ought to be devoted
to crop growing ami other industries
that have a direct bearing on the out-
come of the war, aud the kind of
politics that will divide our citizen-
ship into rival ami contending factious
and destroy united action for the great
cause in which our nation is so loyally
unlisted ought to be tabooed and pro-
hibited, but to conduct our various
branches of Government along the line,
that will make it the most efficient
agency through which to express the
peoples will it is necessary that county,
state and congressional elections shall
be held and thut new officers shall
be chosen and elected.
Time should not be wasted on poli-
tics,—or anything else for that mat-
ter—but time to make a wise selection
of nominees for public office and to
see that only patriotic, efficient and
honest men are nominated aud elected
to public office is the highest type of
patriotic work and a most excellent
use of the time taken to make these
investigations and perform the func-
tions of organisation, registration and
There is no better way to help “win
the war” than to see that men in
sympathy with Amercan ideals, men
of ability and sound convictions who
believe iu our laws and cur institutions
and who are whole hearted in their sup-
port of the Government iu this hour
of crisis, are nominated aud elected.
The war may continue for some
years. It must continue until the na
nations allied with ours are freed from
the menace of a blood-mad militarism
and until the great battle for liberty
for all forever has been won, and we
want men in official positions in Ok-
lahoma ami in Congress who eau be
relied upon to work loyally aud ef-
ficiently, harmoniously and unselfishly
to carry out the peoples' will to win
this war and establish the democratic
liberty that is due the allied aim, at
home and abroad.
That kind of political activity is
real war work and our people will find
the time ami take the trouble to choose
their candidates anil elect them and in
so doiug will most sensibly help by
striking a most effective blow to “Win

We meet him on every corner. He

The appalling death-rate from kidney
disease is due largely to the fact that
the little kidney troubles are usually
ueglectied until they become serious.
The slight symptoms ofteu give place
to chronic disorders and the sufferer
may slip gradually into some serious
form of kidney complaint.
If you suffer from backache, head-
aches, dizzy spells; if the kidneyB are ir-
regular of passage and, do not delay.
Help the kidueys at once.
Doan’s Kidney Pills are especially
for kidney disorders—they act where
others fail. Over one hundred thousand
people have recommended them. Here's
a case at home:
Mrs. A. A. Kellogg, Main St., Tecum-
seh, says: “I have used Doan's Kidney
Pills with good success and others of
my family have taken them also.
Doan's have always been a great help
to me when I have had backache and
they have always corrected my kidneys
when they have not acted right.’'
Price 60c at all dealers. Don't simp,

Kidney- Pills—the same that Mrs. Kel-
logg use*. Foster-Milburn Co., Props..
