30 July A Patriotic Township - Washington township, Pike county, has a credit of 110 men on former calls for troops. As her quota under the present call is but 42 men she will still, after filling it, have 68 men to her credit. There are not many townships that can make a better showing than this.
There is another entry on 18 July - rather special I feel:
We have heard of numerous instances of female heroism in the harvest field which do credit to woman s heart. The male population, in great numbers, are off to the war. And the noble women at home are garnering the grain for them. Everywhere the neighborly system of exchange of labor, (in which women and children have been largely engaged to their infinite credit,) has been adopted, and the wheat crop, one of the largest ever produced, will be havested and saved.
Now, if I had just found out exactly what the goose ordinance was.
