If you should see a French child a tiny girl sitting by the
roadside, sobbing quietly because she Is too weak from hunger to
cry very loud, you would sell your watch to buy her breakfast.
If you should hear somewhere In the restless wards the low
moan of an American soldier, you would gladly sit by Dim all night,
If that would save his life.
You are not there, but luere, where these sights and sounds are
not brought home to you! But the Red Cross Is there and you can
make It YOl'lt representative!
Over there the Prussians are crucifying the incarnate Liberty of
Man, and they are making the world black for little children!
The money you give to the Red Cross now will give you the
right, when (ho Beast Is beaten down, to think. "Theie are happy

Owing to the foot that the war has brought
about many changes in the huHinH world, we are
compelled to adjust our buwutw accordingly.
The government is regulating the prices on many
articles which we have to sell, these prices lire fig
ured on a chnIi basis, therefore, the manufacturer
is holding the jobber to a cash Off a ten day term,
likewise the jobber is demtunding cash from the re
tail merchant, now it is down to the point where
the retail merchant moat get the cash for his
goods or go broke, Therefore from this date we
will confine our term of. credit to strictly thirty
days, tioods ar hard to get, help is scarce, ex
penses leaping upward, and we are forced to this
very much ugainst our desire. We hope our
friends will look at this a am. unavoidable circum
stance over which we have-no control.
