the mortgage, for the simple reason
that there isn't any mortgage. The
facts are that for several years the
fair association had been in debt and
the banks; with great public spirit,
enabled it to carry the debt. A few
months ago, a bunch of our most public-spirited
citizens started out to
raise by popular subscription money
enough to pay off the mortgage. This
was done, the banks contributing lib liberally

now paid off, and the fair property
belongs to the people of the county,

fair the most successful of the series.

Let Us Stop and Think a Minute
Most casually I heard this remark,
which might set others as well as
myself to doing some serious think thinking:"
ing:" thinking:"
"To look at the tired business man
'over here' at the end of a business
day and then at the supplies and the
gifts his women folks send off to the
boys in. camp is to realize that it i&
really this almost unnoticed man who
pays for the time, the money and
materials which his household puts
into its charities and war relief work,
and for which its members may give
credit to themselves alone."
Now we as women, want most fully
to yield a large share of our money,
our time and the work of our hands
to the men "over there." But at the
same time, wouldn't it be more fair
to the men "over here" if we used
every effort to have better manage management

we justified the time spent in stimu stimulating

stimulating the men who support
them there ?
Women have by nature, I believe, a
more subtle intuition than men. We
know for a surety that the best way
to fight depression is to make a per person
son person laugh long and heartily. So as
home-makers might we not establish
relaxation and amusement as a fami family
ly family habit during war-time? How about
bringing back the old fashioned fam family

soothing habit, which we should fol follow
