THE SEJUOTG AM) 3OSSION OF The formation of a Loyalty League in Connellsviile is indicative ol two things having a very imjjortant relation to the altitude of our community toward the prosecution of the -war. The fact that the call for a meeting lor this, purpose was answered by a fairly lar^e nomber of citizens representing all wal£s of life, evidences the growth of a more vigorous public sentiment on all that pertains to America's part in the war. The fact that an organization of this character has been affected serves is notice that the practice of disloyahy ia any of its many forms will henceforth be unpopular, if not also dangerous to be indulged. The conviction is being more and more forced upon tht public mind that wirmmg the war must be made the chief business of the United Slates. Every Aher activity, interest or concern must be subordinated to this end, Every hindrance to «a speedy and efficient prosecution of it must be removed. The prime purpose and object of the insidious pro-Oerman, anti-American propaganda has beeji to retard every activity connected with our war preparation aid to divei t the thoughts of the people from the real issues involved in the great struggle. Disloyal utterances, "sly innuendo, untruthful rumors, bold^lies, scurrilous or malicious statements about the government, Army or Navy; refusal to promote the sale 'of Liberty Bonds, War Savings Stamp;, or to support the Red Cross, Navy League, Y. JL C. A., Knights of Columbus, or other war auxiliaries, aro but forma of that pro-Germanism which seeks to bring about in this ttuntry tho same demoralization as was accomplished in Russia and in the ranks of the Italian army preceding its disastrous retreat. Every person who gives voice to such seatnaenta, or who does any of these things, oi 1 approves such sentiments or acts in others, is consciously or un consciously, placing obstacles in the way oi this country in performing its sacred task of helping to shake loose, the grip Pmssaanism has fastened upon the throat of Christian civilization. It therefore becomes the very urgent, as well as the solemn, duty of every country-loving citizen, not only to make his or her loyalty an active, militant force in the nation's behalf, but to prevent or reader-harmless every effort that is intended, di- rec4y or indirectly, to make uncertain the issue, or to delay the day, when, by the grace of a Just God, the united power and ri^teous wrath of the United States ajwl the Allied nations at war against the brutal Huns and their blasphemous ruler, shall and will prevail. That Connellsvflle may do well her part in this great undertaking, and make it impossible for the disloyal In our midst to do tiieirs, is the reason for the existence of such an organization as the Loyalty League, Those persons who have proven, or are proving, their patriotism to ring true and their loyalty to the nation to be sincere, will find nothing in tiie activities of -the league to molest them or make them afraid. Those who have not stood, or will not stand, four square on the proposition tliat everything humanly possible must and will be done to help America win, are warned, by the formation of this patriotic organization, that their pernicious activities will not be tolerated. That is the meaning and mission the Loyalty League. The anti-American, pro-German sympathizers who Interpret it differently will do so at their own peril- »0"T PIA^T TOO EAKLT. The last three days of March weather ·which has been belated in its coming should be a warning to those zealous, and often inexperienced, gardeners who would rush into the "business oE planting in advance of the proper season. Such haste cannot but result disappointingly. Until the earth has been permanently warmed early planted seeds will not germinate and the labor expended^ in planting them is another waste. Seed is scarce this year and there is use for every ounce of it. The supply should be utilized to the very best advantage, otherwise there will bo a shortage in garden crops. If gardeners will bear in mind that garden crops are divided into four groups, with respect to planting the seeds or setting out the plants, they ·will be much less likely to suffer loss. In this climate the last killing frost usually comes late in April or early in May. Two weeks preceding is early enough to plant cabbage plants from hotbed or seed boi, onion sets, radishes, early smooth peas, early potatoes and turnips. About the date of the last killing frost beets, parsnips, carrots, lettuce, salsify, spinach, wrinkled peas, cauliflower plants, celery seed, onion seed, parIey and sweet corn may be planted. SnaR beans, okra and tomato plants should not be planted until two "weeks after tae last frost. Lima beans, pepper plants, egg plant, cucumbers and melons will not thrive properly until the ground is well warmed up, or about a month after the last hard Ercsts. "We cannot induce nature to change her order, hence efforts to grow plants out of their proper season are almost certain to result in failure. If plantings are made when conditions are favorable to early germination, the growth will be quicker and maturity come quite as early as if the coming of a few warm days tempt gardeners to advance the season beyond its" normal time. Make haste slowly is a good maxim in gardening as well as other activities. HDTV TO HEACH OUR The completeness with which the details of the local Liberty Loan Committee has been organized, tie choice of the most efficient workers of the city on its mer.ibersb.ip and the spirit oi enthusiasm .vhich has marked the preparatory work of the undertaking, give promise that the rather large quota of $818,000 to be sold here will be reached. It will not be reached through tho efforts of the committee alone, however well directed trey may be. To make it such a success as will reflect credit upon the city, as an exemplar of patriotism, will require the fullest cooperation upon, the part of the citi- eens of the contmuni .y. This can be best given through Lberal subscrip- tions, willingly ana cheerfully given, coupled with, a consistent and persistent boosting of the whole proposition. Every encouragement given the members of the soliciting teams will have a-stimulating effect'upon every worker in, 1 the campaign. Given ttte impetus of a good start, and we will be sure to have the inspiring record of a fine finish. WANTED -- TOUR BAJR.BERING businebs. REND INK'S, tf "WANTED--FIVE.

The fine imposed upon the Uniontown school chPJren for removing the Kaiser's pictures from their geography books was not a punishment. It. -was reproof for destroying school property and a recognition of the same spirit of patriotism that Is sending al] Fayette county boys Over Theifc to keep the real Kaiser from appearing In-any more school books. · Th announcement, "Mora men to be added to the draft," is one that is very likely to be made witti Increasing fre- cruency. What "have you done today to prov your loyalty? By Wftlt ftfa*on. RUSSIA. I fear that Russia won't behave until her people learn to shave. We cannot Jook for grood horse sense in men whose shrubbery Is dense, whose lambrequins obstruct the view, and aften block the traffic, too. I hope to see sad Russia rise from that deep pit in which she IJes; I hope to see her Hue in time, and hew a destiny sublime, but first her men will have to hew th« ·whiskers that impede ttfb view. No nation can be truly great whose voters pack a hundredweiprht of spinach up and dfawn the street, so long it g-ct. beneath their feet. When poor old Russia spilled the beans, anl swapped her birthright for some greens, when ·windy demagogues arose and turned her over to her foes, when desolution o'er her crept, the allied nations looked and wept There was no harshness in their gaze: they sympathized 'with those poor jays, by fool ac'vlsvrs Jert afar from where the wreaths of jrl are. The allied nations wept and sighed, "She's hit the lonp tobojrsrin slide; such spectacles disgust. dect, bat what can any one expect from men ·whose ·whiskers seem .to grow c f f f h t inches every hour or so?" And thus 'twill ever, always he: no f u t u r e for the Russ we see. until, with motions strong 1 and blithe, he reaps his whiskers with a scythe. RBSOLTTTIONS OF IIE.SPJECT.

In rear of Gil West Crawford avenue. West Side, Conn el IH- viiie Pa. We believe that every man, ·woman and child in Connellsville should own a Liberty Bond--not merely one bond but as many bonds as they are able to buy. It is better to invest your* money with Uncle Sam NOW, than let Germany take it away from you later. THE LIBERTY BOND CLUB makes the buying of a bond a simple matter for everybody. We buy the bonds for you and you pay for them in easy weekly installments. $1 down and $1 for 49-weeks pays for a $50 Bond. $2 down and $2 for 49 weeks pays for a ' $100 Bond. $5 down and $5 for 49 weeks pays for a $250 Bond. $ I 0 down and $ 1 0 for 49 weeks pays for a $500 Bond. Under this plan, even if you haven't saved a cent you can buy a bond. All you need to do is to take a dollar out of your next pay for the first installment and a dollar a week thereafter until the bond is paid for. PATRIOTISM AND SELF PROTECTION Buying bonds just now is a patriotic duty. It is also a matter of self-protection. Uncle Sam needs our help. It is our battle he is fighting. If we do not furnish the money he cannot win the war. Isn't it better to lend to Uncle Sam, at good interest rates, than pay Germany a huge indemnity? fTouIdii't you rather icnct Uncle f^im your last dollar than pny the Kniser one cent?
