A CALL TO DUTY.
From tho battlefields In Franco
thoro conies an unspoken call that
Bhould find on answer In every Amer
ican's heart. Tho recent great events
in HureneiUhcjauoofcases of American
Arms on tho fields of Franco should
npur overy Amorlcan to greater ef
fort Our peoplo at homo should not rest
on tho laurels of our soldiers In
France. Every death on tho field of
honor In tho lino of duty and for our
country's causo should bo a call to
us for overy sacrlflco and overy exor
ilon to aid the cause for which our
soldlora aro fighting, for which our
soldiers havo died.
Increase production, decrcaso con
sumption, save, and lend to tho gov
crnmont. Every cent lent to tho
United States Is used to support,
strengthen and aid our soldiers In
THE HARTRANFT PETITION.
Tho charges brought against Food
Administrator Hartranft In tho peti
tion reported In Tho Bulletin yester
day aro of a very general nature. Wo
doubt if tho officials to whom tho
petition is addressed will consider it
without moro detailed speclflcat oiu
of dereliction of duty, and Mr. Hart
ran ft Is entitled to know in detail tho
charges against him. Tho general
public, if it Is to be asked to form an
opinion In tho matter, is also entitled
to know tho facts so that It can
make up Its mind.
As tho matter stands now no facts
aro alleged. There aro simply gen
eral charges of discrimination and
partiality. If any of theso can bo
proved, Mr. Hartranft ought to be
removed; if they cannot be proved
bo ought to stay on the Job and be
given the assistance of every citizen
In tho county. In the meantime,
until the facts are brought out it is
duo him that Judgment be suspended.

Wonl Among Them but "Can"
Easy to Set It Allro If You
Aro Not Watching.
Ono of tho first things to bo dis
closed by the recent Introduction of I
tho sugar card was the fact that
-various people wero moro Interested
In trying to get a good supply for
themselves than In co-operating with
tho food administration, and denying
themselves in order that our soldiers
and our allies might bo cared for.
The sugar rules, liko all the other
food regulations, are designed to
treat overyono alike. The individ
uals who break them, or who try to
get an advantage over their fellows,
aro slackers of the worst sort. They
deserve tho most severe penalties
that can bo given them.
MAILING YOURSELF MONEY.
Every time you stick a thrift or
war savings stamp on your card you
aro mailing money to yourself to be
received later with Interest. Cashing
in theso stamps Is going to bo better
than "getting money from home,"
for with tho money comes the re
minder that you contributed to the
great victory which then will havo
been completely won.
HOW CAN I SERVE?
How pan I best servo my country,
is tho question that recurs, again
and again, to the patriotic young man
below the draft age.
Tho war department, through Sec
retary Uaker, has undertaken to
answer this question through tho or
ganization of the new Students'
Army Training corps, a branch of
tho United States army, which will
bo installed In all universities and
colleges having more than ono hun
dred malo students, in September,
Tho department is asking that the
young men below draft age enter
collego or contlnuo their work there,
join tho new corps, and fit themselves
as thoroughly as possible for the
Jiighest typo of service for which thoy
Danger of depletion of the supply
of trained men In arts and sciences,
nooded both in war nnd peace, has
nppoaled strongly to the secretary of
war. In common with tho President
of tho United States, the secretary
liolds It to bo a patriotic duty for
tho young men to contlnuo their

NAME THE SLACKERS.
Wo do not know Just what form
of action or inaction first drew down
on an Individual the opproblouB namo
of slacker, but It could not have
been much worse than tho business
of signing pledges for Red Cross sub
scriptions and then failing to pay
them. It Is easy to sign a pledge to
pay, and fine to see your namo In
tho paper and have your neighbor sco
It and think what a generous fellow
you are. It is also easy to forget
about it right away and to pay no
attontion to notices. And since tho
names of the ones who do not pay
are nover published you may rest
secure in tho publicity you gained
when your namo was first published.
Publish tho names of thoso who
do not pay, wo say. When a man Is
a slacker ho ought to be branded as
one, and especially ho ought not to
havo such credit as may havo come
from having his name In a list of
Namo the slackers.
PRETTY LEGEND OF NIAGARA

they left their lodge nnd leaped nnd

floated beneath the filer, or rushed pnst

shouting with glee. At lust they enmo

So over tho steep they sprung nnd
floated down on their pnlnted wings.
They leaped and they sang like happy

"Let us up and down tho steep ugnln I"
And up and down tho five maids'
