The urgent demand for workers at
headquarters to make garments and
surgical dressings is very apparent.
Every letter from Division Headquart-
ers is stamped ‘“Surgical Dressings
Greatly Needed.” It is only necessary
to call attention of the good women to
this fact to make them rally to the
cause and make Red Cross Headquart-
ers the most popular place in town.
It is a privilege to say "I a* working

This is our own column. The Rock-
dale Renorter never does anything Ky

ful space as long as we will keep it
up. Let’s get busy!

We are very grateful to thtf Carr
Coal Company for donating a load of
coal to the surgical dressing room.
Heretofore, through the kindness of
Messrs. E. B. Phillips and Preston
Perry the rooms have been heated.
A telephone has been installed at
Red Cross Headquarters over the "Loe-
wenstein store. Anyone desiring in-
formation on the work, or to speak to
any of the workers, will please phone
J8. The surgical dressing room will
also have a telephone this week.
Last Monday—the 1st Monday—
found the Christian church ladies with
Christian spirit, plying the needle and
doing their bit. The Methodist ladies
have the second Monday, and it is
needless to say that expert work is
packed away on their day.
Saturdays have been reserved for
Junior work. They will begin active

Chapters are asked to be patient
and not complain because methods
and directions are often change. This
is never done capriciously, but al-
ways is the result of experience or
brought about by changing conditions.
If we could only know the reasons un-
derlying these changes our common
sense and judgment would always ap-
prove them. If, therefore, you are
informed that certain kinds of dress-
ing or supplies that have been in de-
mand are no longer wanted you must
understand that the reason is a good
one and that the men who are calling
for the changes from the front know
best. Trust them, obey orders and
In the surgical dressing rooms are
now 1451 finished dressings, and as
soon as they are inspected a box will
be shipped. The night class will open

working during the day who would
like to do their bit at night, as well,
may phone Mrs. C. M. Sessions.
School teachers, clerks and business
men are urged to come and work in
the night class. We would like to an-
nounce that it is not true, as has been
reported, that only a few can make
these dressings, and that there are
charges made to those who work. It
is absolutely free, and everyone is
urged to come and work for the *de-'
mand for these supplies is so great

During the Christmas Membership
Drive it was the proper thing to1 fly
the Red Cross flag, but now that the
drive is over it is not permitted to
fly the flag on automobiles or else-
where. The privilege of flying the
Red Cross flag is confined to member-
ship drives and other special occa-
sions, duly designated by the authori-
ties at Washington.

being called “Captain,” or any similar
title. He claimed only to have been
a private soldier, carrying a musket.
He was proud of his war record, and
no old Johnny Reb ever lived who
took more pride in the Lost Cause or
loved it better.
He was severely wounded at Sharps-
burg on Sept. 17, 1862, and was there
taken prisoner, being held at Camp
Chase awhile, and later being trans-
ferred to Johnson Island, where he
remained until late in 1863, when he
was exchanged, paroled and discharg-
ed on account of his wound.
Ir. 1864 he re-enlisted in Hargrove's
Battalion Mounted Infantry, and serv-
ed with that command until the cfose !
of the war.
Mr. Arnold was for many years a
regular attendant upon the annual re-
unions of the Hood’s Brigade, and two
years ago iast June, he had the honor j
and satisfaction of serving that com-
mand as its president at its annual re- j
union held in Rockdale, having been
elected president at the previous
year’s meeting at Floresville. The j
sessions of the reunion over which he
presided will no doubt linger to the
last in the memory of every old sol-
dier who attended that meeting.
Mr. Arnold moved to Texas in 1887,
settling at Milano in this county. Sev-
enteen years ago he moved to Rock-
dale. His wife and several grown
children survive him, as well as sev-
eral small grandchildren, whom in
his declining years and straightened
circumstances he took to his heart and
home to raise. ,
He was a life-lon» member of the
Methodist church, and the funeral ser-
vices were conducted Monday after-
noon by Rev. M. N. Terrell, his pastor.
The remains were laid to rest in the
Sandy Creek cemetery’’.
Thus passes one of Rockdale’s most
interesting characters. B. V. Arnold
was a finr* typo of the Southern gen-
tleman. With a heart naturally as
gentle as that nf a r>hi]8 vot with con-
victions which when aroused brought
forth all the old ante-bellum fighting
blood, he was a type of the Old South
which is rapidly passing to the Great
Beyond. He was as true as steel to
his friends. He was faithful to any
trust imposed. Peace to his ashes.

Mr. Gunn is preparing to make a crop

Mrs. G. P.Cartwright, of

THICK, GLOSSY HAIR
FREE FROM DANDRUFF
Girle! Try Itl Hair gets soft, fluffy and
beautiful—Get a small bottle
If you care for heavy hair that glis-
tens with beauty and is radiant with
life; has an incomparable softness and
is fluffy and lustrous, try Danderine.
Just one application doubles the
beauty of your hair, besides it imme-
diately dissolves every particle of
dandruff. Y’ou can not have nice heavy,
healthy hair if you have dandruff. This
destructive scurf robs the hair of it*
lustre, its strength and its very life,
and if not overcome it produces a fever-
! ishness and itching of the scalp; the
J hair roots famish, loosen and die; then
'the hair fall* out fast. Surely get a
small bottle of Knowlton’s Danderine
from any drug store and just try fy.

You can feel safe in giv-

mild, vegetable, medici-
nal ingredients, recog-
nized by standard medi-
cal books for many years,
as being of great value in
the troubles from which
only womeqstfffer. The
• enthusiastic praise of the
thousands of women who
have been helped by
Cardui in its past 40 years
of successful use should
assure you of its genuine
merit, and convince you
that it would be worth
your while to try this
medicine for your trou-
bles. Af! druggists sell it.
