They may not be as good show sol soldiers

I am as usual in the very best of
health and spirits. Give my regards

With best of wishes. Sincerely,

(Associated
Chautauqua, N. Y., July 6. Wom Women
en Women were urged by Mrs. Percy V. Pen-
nybacker, of Austin, Texas, formerly
president of the American Federation
of Women's Clubs, in an address she
delivered today at the Speakers'
Training Camp for Education in Pat Patriotic
riotic Patriotic Service, to aid in the war hy
conserving food.
"If we do our duty by our allies
and the neutral countries over the
seas, there will be this fall a serious
lack of meat, potatoes and white
flour," said Mrs. Pennybacker. "In
this dilemma the government makes
a direct appeal to women. f ;
"First, it asks that we help the men
to produce more.
: "Second, that we eliminate waste."
"Third, the government asks that
women substitute the cheaper foods
for those that have grown costly.
"Fourth, we are asked to conserve
all fruits and vegetables that are
produced this summer for we. shall
not feel the full brunt of war prices
until cold weather comes.
"There is a concrete contribution
that each of us can make, beginning
today, toward the elimination of
waste. A 'war portion' should be our
watch word at each meal. This does
not mean hunger, it means taking on
the plate only what we will consume,
wasting nothing.
"It becomes the solemn duty of
every woman to keep before her the
fact that this food campaign is not
one of short duration. -As long as tht
war lasts, we must 'stand by our
guns'; we must remember that for
every man who goes to the front five
people at horn are needed to sustain
him. .Above all things, we must let it
be known that no woman has the
right to buy in large quantities and
hoard food for her family. Some one
has well said that 'such a woman is at
heart a traitor.'
"There was never greater need for
women to be sane than at this hour.
There is no excuse for excitement or
for hysteria. Let there be no weep weeping,
ing, weeping, no complaining, no lamentation,
when our loved ones answer the call
of duty." v

A friend sends us the article, head headed
ed headed "South Blamed for the Negro Ex Exodus,"
odus," Exodus," reproduced elsewhere from the
New York Times, and asks us to an answer
swer answer it. There is no use in answering
such stuff. It is written by people who
prefer to lie about the South even
when they know they are lying. The
time has passed when the South needs
to try to answer such charges. The
New York Times is owned and, we
suppose, managed, by Adolph S.
Ochs, who-gained his start in the
Southern city of Chattanooga. We
knew him at a time when he was less
tolerant of negroes than his southern southern-born
born southern-born neighbors. He knows, if his edi editors,
tors, editors, do not that such signs as "Ne "Negroes
groes "Negroes and Dogs not Admitted" do not
appear in the South, and if he had
proper regard for the reputation of
his paper he would not allow such
statements to appear in it. "Anyone
who really wants to know the status
of the southern negro should visit
this typical southern town, where the
negroes have their own bank, stores
and theater, where they have all the
work they will do at fair wages, and
where hundreds of them own their
home's; rwhere the white people pay
most of the taxes that educate their
children, and where there is little or
no trouble between the races. Rot
such as apepars in the article in the
Times is written by negroes who are
discontented with their own race.
They want to force themselves on
white people, to mingle with them so socially,
cially, socially, to pay attentions to white
women and neglect their own. Such
negroes can't live in the Southland
they will only have to show their
hands to make it impossible for them
to live in the north. In yiew of the.
recent occurrences in East St. Louis,
the article in the Times is ridiculous
as well as untruthful.

And then go o'er!
One sight and then the librant morn
Of perfect day
When my free spirit, newiy born,
Will soar away!
Onepang and I shall rend the thrall
Where grief abides,
And generous Death will show me
all
That now he hides;
And, lucid in that second birth,
I shall discern
What all the sages of the earth
Have died to learn.
One motion and the stream is crost,
So dark, so deep!.
And I shall triumph, or be lost
In endless sleep.
Then, onward! Whatsoe'er my fate,
I shall not care!
Nor Sin, nor Sorrow, Love nor Hate
Can touch me there.

SOUTH' BLAMED FOR
THE NEGRO EXODUS

(New York Times)
A mass meeting of New York ne ne-grose
grose ne-grose to discuss the problems created
by the wholesale negro migration from
the South in the last year, held yes yesterday
terday yesterday afternoon in the Abyssinian
Baptist church, 240 West Fortieth
street, showed plainly that Northern
negroes are watching "the exodu3 of
their people with deep interest and
approval, and that they believe the
reason for it is not higher wages in
the North, but treatment in the South
to which they object. The church was
packed to the doors, and the speakers
were freely applauded.
Several of the speakers alluded to
the extent ,of negro migration from
the South in the last year. Mr. Powell
estimated that 350,000 negroes had
left Georgia, Alabama, Florida and
other Southern states within ten
months, and he placed the economic
loss to that region, due to their de departure,
parture, departure, at $200,000,000. In Ocala,
Fla., he said, the Rev. A. L. James, a
negro clergyman found his flock so
depleted that he gave up his parish
and came to New York. Arriving in
Harlem, within two days he found
twelve families from his flock, and
was busy re-establishing his church
here.
"This migration," said the Rev.
Clayton Powell, pastor of the church,
"differs from all others in that it has
no visible leader. To say that the ne negro
gro negro is coming North for higher wages
is grossly to misinterpret the spirit
of the exodus. The negroes are leav leaving
ing leaving the South because'life to them has
been made miserable and unbearable.
"They are tired of being kept out
of public parks and libraries, of be being
ing being deprived of equal educational op opportunities
portunities opportunities for their children, for
which they are taxed, of reading
signs, 'Negroes and dogs not admit admitted';
ted'; admitted'; the men are tired of disfran disfranchisement
chisement disfranchisement the women are tired of
the insults of white hoodlums, and the
whole race is sick of seeing mobs
mutilate and burn unconvicted negro
men. AH the people coming here are
not poor. If the 350,000 negroes who
have recently left the South were of offered
fered offered $5 a day and free transportation
back, not 10 per cent would return in
a whole year. If they were assured
that these horrible injustices would be
removed, especially the hellish insti institution
tution institution of lynching, 80 per cent of them
would return almost as quickly as
they came away."
Fred Mofere, editor of the New
York Age,, the negroes' organ, point pointed
ed pointed out that in New York you could see
white and negro children going home
from school side by side, under the
piotection of the same policeman.
"There is no race friction- in the
North," he said. ."Who is responsible
for race f rictiorr-In the South? How
can white people in the South expect
the black people to respect them when
they are always drawing the color
line? Can the white. South expect the
black South to stay there forever un under
der under these conditions?
"We have been, patriotic, we have
been faithful, we wanted to fight for
our country, but the man in the
White House drew the color line on
us. The South is in the saddle in
Washington. But unless the New York
Times and other Northern papers that
have spoken for us cry out now to the
South and tell them where they are
heading, it will be too late for them
to save themselves. We have been
patient. We have never taught our
children to hate the white man, but
right now the Southern white child
is taught in his own home to hate, not
only the negro, X but the Northern
white man who wants to give the ne
gro the square deal. The only peo people
ple people who can stop this emigration are
the white people of the Southl and
they can only stop it in one way; by
putting an end to lynching and injus injustice
tice injustice to our race."

TEMPERANCE NOTES
(By the National Woman's Chris Christian
tian Christian Temperance Union.)

GETS HER FIRST PAIR OF NEW
SHOES.
"Gee, but I'm glad the town went
dry I hope it will never be wet
again."
Thus spoke a little girl, thirteen
years old, to the superintendent of
settlement work in Waukegan, 111.
This girl Is wearing her first pair of
new shoes purchased by her father.
During all her life she had worn the
cast-off shoes of others.
The superintendent stated that" a
domestic tranquillity had settled, down
upon the foreign quarter that was
truly delightful. When the town was
under the old saloon order of things
there was scarcely a night that the
settlement workers were not called
upon to settle some family row caused
by drink. Now the men stay at home
and romp with their children or play
the concertina. On half-holidays you
see them improving their property,
painting the house, repairing the
fence, or working In the garden.
While the city was under rum rule
many a boy was sent away to the re reform
form reform school, but not one boy has gone
down the line since the saloon has
been dethroned.
The people are buying more and bet better
ter better food and clothing. The groceries
and furniture stores report an increase
of 50 per cent more trade since booze
was eliminated. The factories report
very few men not able to be on the
job on Monday. The men are more
efficient and turn out more products.
The wire mill has raised the wages of
Its employees twice since the saloons
went. on the junk pile.
The president of one bank states
that bank deposits have Increased over
a million dollars since the city
climbed on the water chariot. The
Illinois Issue.
THE ECONOMIC SIDE.
Insurance statistics show that alco alcohol
hol alcohol takes 13 years from the life of the
moderate drinker. If two-thirds of
adult males drink even moderately
leaving out all hard drinkers, all wom women,
en, women, and all children under eighteen
alcohol will take from the lives of
American men now living 260,000,000
years, from ; fifty-one to sixty-four
years when business and professional
men earn most. At $500 a year, which
is far too low an estimate of the earn earning
ing earning power, this means a money loss to
the nation of $130,000,000,000 (one hun hundred
dred hundred and thirty billions).
Nation-wide prohibition, it. has been
pointed out, would be equivalent to
the doubling of all products that come
from mother earth. It would be the
equivalent of the wealth of another
continent as big and rich as this one.

As to Its practicability, the Inventor

In the event of a big order, the parts
could be standardized and made In
wholesale lots, so that the output
could1 be greatly increased."

HIGH COST OF A SOLDIER

It Requires $1,C00 a Year to Keep Him,
and Much More to Kill
Him.
Measured by their debts. It ha3 cost
England, France and Germany about
$1,000 a year for every soldier and sail
or on duty during the war, "Girard"
writes in the Philadelphia Ledger.
French writers say that Russia has
still 6,000,000 good soldiers to equip.
The United States could equip and
maintain In the field half that force.
or 3,000,000 Russian troops, for a year
at an expense of $3,000,000,000.
And that $3,000,000,000 would not
more than equal the sum which the
United States has already made out of
this war.
Lincoln called for 75,000 troops to
suppress what was then thought to
be a modest Civil war, and 300,000 vol volunteered
unteered volunteered In a day.
That rate of volunteering now would
bring a million and a half men under
the flag immediately.
A few years ago a French military
critic said it cost $20,000 to kill one
soldier In war.
It has cost the allies about $23,00
to kill one of their foes in the pres present
ent present war.
These estimates take no account of
the wounded and prisoners who go into

HIS HOME IN STATE OF WAR
No Peace for a Teuton Whose House
Was Divided Against
Itself.
A policeman found a man leaning
weakly against a lamp post the other
night. He was carrying a lopsided load
of alcohol. Fearing he would overflow
and freeze, the cop gave him a gentle
nudge with his night stick.
"Get out of here and go home," he
ordered.
"I can't," wept the man with a
strong Teutonic flavor, "I wish was
dead. I come from Bavaria, my wife
she is French, and her mother, who
lives by us, is Swiss. My eldest girl
got married to an Italian, and my oth other
er other one to a Dane, and now since this
country looks like it goes to war, my
three sons say they are Americans.
What do I want to go home for to
get killed?"
The cop rubbed a thoughtful finger
across his face.
v"Well," he said, "It's agin, regula regulations,
tions, regulations, but you got to go somewhere,"
and he eased him gently Into the
back entrance of a saloon and put him
in a chair.
The iwoe-begone Teuton wept loud loudly
ly loudly as the policeman went away.
