CANVASSERS AIM TO DOUBLE LOCAL QUOTA BY MONDAY Continued from Par* On*, to a canvassing team, appeared at the Red Cross headquarters this morning and paid $20 cash. Reports from the country districts are that there is some misunderstanding as to the use of the 25 per cent of the contributions which is retained by the county chapter for its work here. Three-fourths of the money collected goes to the boys over there and tho remaining fourth is retained in tie district from which it is solicited. The money is not used for the payment of any official salaries but goes for the purchase of material for gowns, bed clothes, surgical bandages, wipes, yarn for' sweaters, helmets and socks and the many other things which are made by free labor contributed to the Red Cross by its memlers. The finished articles are then sent overseas for use. A donation of J25 was yesterday made to the Red Cross by the Pi Eta Phi club, formed of girls of the^city. The money had originally been earned for financing a war garden but the club decided it would be put to better use in the Red Cross.

One cent :i wor*. · ANCIENT AND MODERN WAR Idle to Make Comparivon. a* to tho Courage Required by the Soldiers of the Period. Much IB written of the terrors of modern war. Little is written of the terrors of the wars of old. Yet It doubtful If war today makes greater demand* on human 'courage than war In the time of Grant, of Washington, of Turenne, of Caesar, of Alexander. Consider a stand-up infantry fight In the days of tbe revolution. After the preliminary cannonade and long- distance musketry practice, the two regiments marched toward each, other Jn close ranks. At a given distance, frequently at thirty yards, there was a halt, a smashing volley, and then a bayonet charge through, the smoke. Bullets those dayis were large and of soft lead, and the man who was hit went down. Orer him tramped his comrades or tbe enumy. shooting and ·tabbing. That was the type of Infantry battles for 150 years. To minimize the courage needed to make a good soldier under such circumstances Is to fly in the face of common sense. Modern war requires a different type of courage from that needed, of old. The old touch of elbows la lack- Ing. The old feeling of companionship IB gone. The modern soldier must be more alert, bettor taught, keener wilted than the olden soldier of equal value. But It does not follow that tbe modern soldier Is the braver man. The nan who fought at the "blood- anglee" of Chlckamauga and Spottsyl- vanla, at Bunker Hill and Ortskany, at Rlvolt, Zorndorf and Mflplaqnet, bad no need to learn heroism In any modern school. U was there already. HELPLESS WITHOUT THE DOG ·evmingly Owner of COWB Had Not Thought That He Himself Might Go After Them. An Atlanta man tells of an amusing experience be had In a mountainous region In a aouthwectern state, where the inhabitant* are notoriously shift- lees. Arriving at a dilapidated shanty at the noon hour, he inquired as to the prospect for getting dinner. The head of the family, who had been "resting" on a fallen tree in front of his dwelling, made reply to the effect that he "guessed ma'd hev snthln' onto the table putty Boon." With this encouragement the traveler dismounted. To his chagrin, however, he soon discovered that the food set before him was such that he could not possibly "make a meal." He made such excuses as ho could for his lack of appetite, and finally bethought himself of a kind of nourishment which he might venture to take and which was sure to be found fn any locality. He asked for some milk. "Don't have milk no more," said the head of the pluce. "The dawg's dead." "The dog!" cried tbe etrnnger. "What on earth has the dog to do with itr "Well," explained his host medita- -ively, "them cows don't seem to know nough to come up an' be milked their elves. The dog, he used to go fc :m an' fetch 'em up."--Lippincott's. MOOSE 3EEWORIAL SERVICES. Lodpc Has Arranged Program for Tomorrow.

We had a. fire drill today and every man was out of quarters and on the top deck in 10 minutes. "I saw one o£ the biggest fish, it was a whalo. We are all having a I flaa time. The band plays and we enjoy ourselves on board ship. Am traveling second class and on a very fast boat, but there is nothing to sec but sky and water. The second day.--Had a good night's sleep, having gone to bed at 10 o'clocK and never know a thing until I was called tile nest day. The sea is getting rough today but I am sUH well. We passed three strips today but could not tell tbe names of them so far away. They were- going towards horn*. "We had another fire drill and the gun crew had target practice.. It would almost lift your hat when fc they fired those guns. I was put on guard, relieving a. man at 5 o'clock in the morning, keeping everyone off the deck except the crew. Third day.--"Had another good night's sleep. Today the sea is very rough, the boat is rocking too much for some of the men. There are lots of them seasick and I am slowly falling myself. Jt is also raining, so I am staving In quarters today. "This fourth day I went to mass and communion. The boat is stiil rocking on the same rough sea but we are just about used to it now. · Another snip went bailing towards home today but the name could not be distinguished. We all signed the payroll but I don't Jmow when we are going to get paid. Chicken for dinner today. "Five days and all's well with the ship, but the sea is on a rampage. The boys are a HUle blue today; I wonder why; I am still 'on top,' bat I think I will come down to see the other boys pretty soon. Passed another homeward bound ship but. can't tell you the name .of it. "Sil days out and the sea is bettor and so are the boys. No one has been 'able to see land as yet but they say we aren't far trom it The band played tor ua in the afternoon. We are still enjoying ourselves, although we are tired of looking at nothing but water. "On the seventh day we were near land. We passed lots of ships anil two airplanes, band came in sight at 5 o'clock. I met Jimmie LaPort the next morning and we talked about Connellsville till 10 o'clock. We bit dock at 7 P. M. and embarked at 7 tile next morning. This is my whole trip. I enjoyed it very -much. "NICK F. POCKSTALbERS, "Battery D, 56th Coast Artillery."

It is the new Brunswick--i I the most important achievement in the phonograph art in recent years. Now old ideas must be discarded. No one will be content with a one-record instrument with all its limitations. No one will be content with attachments and makeshifts for playing all records, but which hinder tone. The new Brunswick Method of Reproduction brings new tonal values, due to The Ultona and The Brunswick Amplifier. No one will be satisfied now -s ith the old tonal standards--once they hear The Brunswick. We want to say emphatically that until the coming of this remarkable new instrument, real reproduction was never attained. You cannot afford now to evsn think of buy lag a phonograph without first hearing this remarkable instrument. .It "is made by The Brunswick-Balke-Collender Co. Whether you are ready to buy now or not, come in and hear the latest and best instrument of them all. PFTFR R WFIMFR 1 ij i JL-sSA £\» »¥ JCjal»jlS_it\ 127-129 E. Crawford Ave., Conaeiisville, Pa.
