Telegram that Congressman Drane
has refused to apportion to the h6me
guards in his district the rifles and
ammunition secured by him for the
state. His reason is that a dispute
broke out among the different coun counties
ties counties about the disposition of the guns.
Mr. Drane should have awarded the
guns to his home town, Lakeland, and
to Tampa, which has over 600 toler tolerably
ably tolerably trained guards but no guns to
arm them with. In the nature of
things, a company or a battalion of
home guards is more useful in a city
ike Tampa than in a smaller town;
also, it is more likely to be needed.
There shouldn't have been any dis
pute over the guns. As the Lakeland
Telegram says: "We would not ask
more than our share, but it is the nat

there is any favoritism at all, and it

THE WORLD-WIDE FOOD CRISIS
Essay by Miss Irene Henderly of the ;
Ocala High School, Which Won
First Prize in Contest for the Best
Paper on Food Conservation.
Never before in history has a na nation
tion nation received so sobering a summons
at the beginning of war. The wolf
is at the door of the world. We meet
it with the food control bill. Nemesis
is knocking at America's door and
famine is staring her in the face.
The supreme need of our nation
and of nations with which we are
allied 4s an abundance of supplies and
especially food stuffs. America is
facing a crop failure and once retreat
is under way it will be supremely dif
ficult to halt. The conserving of
food is the most important stroke de
livered in the battle of preparation;
mere fighting is useless. America
must be able to supply herself and
her allies with' food if the war
against Germany is to be won.
The importance of an adequate
food supply, especially for the pres
ent year, is superlative. The world's
fobd reserves are low. Without
abundant food, alike for the armies
and people now at war, the whole
great enterprise will break down and
fail. Not only during the present
emergency, 6ut for sometime after
peace has been declared, we, and a
large portion of Europe will be de dependent
pendent dependent on the harvests of America.
To make the world safe for dem democracy,
ocracy, democracy, we must win this war. The
food control act means that man, who
has harnessed the physical forces of
nature to serve nis ends, is now
trying to harness the economic forces
under the stress of war. The thre.
factors with which we shape and de determine
termine determine its issue are money, men and
food. Money and men can be ob
tained through organization, but food
must be conserved, and is the decid deciding
ing deciding factor. There are several ways
in which food may be conserved, and
personal responsibility to conserve
comes to everyone.
In the first place, let there be no
waste land. Every foot should be
placed under cultivation. Young men
and old alike turn in hosts to the
farms. All over the United States
there are recruiting stations for farm
helpers, as well as for men who wish
to join other branches of service, and,
if they are not able to join the na
tional army, they may join the army
of the plow. Raise all your home
vegetables and as many more as pos
sible. In doing so you will be doing
a patriotic deed for your country, for
on the wheat fields of America, war
will will be decided in our favor.
Not only will this keep you from buy buying
ing buying such a great quantity of food
stuffs, but it will save transportation
charges. The greater the caxe taken
in the production of food, the greater
the results.,. Use reliable fertilizers,
and destroy all insects that tend to
devastate plant life.
A good way to preserve perishable
fruits and vegetables is by canning
or drying them. Canning retains the

greater degree than do other means
of preserving. In addition, canned
fruits require less preparation before

to consider whether food shall be
canned or not. Drying furnishes a

waste of food by not using all skim

Copyright, 1917, by Edgar A. Guest.
Little woman, hourly sitting,
Something for a soldier knitting,
What in fancy do you see?
Many pictures comes to me.
Through the stitch that now you're
I behold a bullet breaking;
I can see some soldier lying
In that garment slowly dying,
And that very bit of thread
In your fingers, turns to red.
Gray today; perhaps tomorrow
Crimsoned by the blood of sorrow.
It may be some hero daring
Shall that very thing be wearing
When he ventures forth to give
Life that other men may live.
He may braver wield the sabre
As a tribute to your labor,
And for that, which you have knitted,
Better for his task be fitted.
When the thread has left your finger
Something of yourself may linger,
Something of your lovely beauty
May sustain him in his duty.
Someone's boy that was a baby
Soon shall wear it, and it may be
He shall write and tell his mother
Of the kindness of another
And her spirit shall caress you,
And her prayers at night shall bless
You may never know its story,
Cannot know the grief or glory
That are destined now and hover
Over him your wool shall cover,
Nor what spirits shall invade it
Once your gentle hands have made it.
Little woman, hourly sitting,
Something for a soldier knitting.
Tis no common garb you're making,
These no common pains you're taking,
Something lovely, holy lingers
O'er the needles in your fingers
And with every stitch you're weaving
Something of yourself you're leaving.
From your gentle hands and tender
There may come a nation's splendor
And from this, your simple duty,
Life may win a fairer duty.

This is the patriotic picture whose

R. M. C. says:
"It is to be hoped that you have no
pacifistic friends but should such a
calamity be, take them to the movies
to see 'The Man Without a Country'
and you will find their point of view
quite different afterwards. Founded
on Everett Hale's story, but a picture
of the present, it is a film that rings
with patriotism and a light to guide
from possible treason the misguided
individual who would have peace at
any price. The screen is able to bring
the war more vividly before us than
any other medium, so it is good to
have such pictures."
