TAZEWELL, VA., OCT. 1 1912.
Thos. R. Marshall
For Congress?9th District:
Gen. R. A. Ayers,
of Wise County.
A THING OP THE PAST
If a pupil dosen't behave himself
should the teacher thrash him? This
is an old question, and opinions differ.
It was not a question at all when we
older ones were hoys. The birch was
a COnspicioUS piece of furniture of
every country school house?one of
the chief and moHt frequcnly used
toolR of the school master of the past.
Boys, and girls, too, were the victims
of this, often cruel form of correct?
ion. Some pretty good men and women
were turned out from these schools,
none the worse, perhaps better men
and women, because of this rigid, if
painful, discipline. Times have
changed. It is no longer considered
the thing to do. In few, it any schools
now, except in isolated communities,
is'the practice followed.
The legal right to whip anothers
child, has not so far as we know,
been conferred upon a teacher by the
Courts, and no school Board has the
authority to confer the right. Other
and better means of correction, are
available.. Several cases have occur
cd in Tazowell county recently,
which have given tiouble, and make
tho consideration of the question
Last year on Bluestone, a school
was greatly disturbed by a teacher
whipping a little a girl, severely her
parents said. A warrant was issued
for the t eacher and a suit in Court
threatened. Recently a similar thing
occurred at North Tazewell, where
the Principal of the school, a lady
was charged with whipping a boy
very severely. The irate father tried
to have the teacher arrested, but fin?
ally appeal was made to the school
Board, for redress. The Board we un?
derstand, sustained the teacher.
As a general proposition we have
always been uncompromisingly oppos?
ed to the switch in the school room.
In an experience of more than six
years as a teacher of Public und
High schools, no child was ever struck
a lick. And we kept good successful
schools, too, so all interested de?
clared. A teacher who cannot get on
without fighting with swithes and
strapes etc., should either quit
school or have the refectory pupil
quit. No man has thu right to slash
another man's child withuut permis?
sion from the other man. The child
can be dismissed and should be. The
schooi law gives the privilege. On
the other hand, some of the most suc?
cessful teachers follow the advice of
Solomon, and use the rod, to good
effect. The whipping, we think,
should be done by the parents, but
muny parents have so little control
over their children, that they cannot
be managed except by brute force.
Parents seldom believe their children
deserve to bo punished, and never
correct them at home or permit any
one else to do so, and there's the rub.
A teacher should not be censured for
doing her best to help the child and
maintain discipline in the school. If
she is forced to use the birch she
should do so rensonably and merci?
fully, and the parents should approve,
and 'perhaps give the boy one more
when he gets home, as some of our
parents used to do. We do not be
lieve, however, that a teacher regrets
in after years, having omitted this
form of punishment.
ARE THE WOMEN IMMODEST ?
There has been a great deal of talk
and some severe criticism of the man?
ner in which the young women dress,
theac days, .That many of the dresses
are extreme is putting it mildly, end
must strain wornaly modosty to tlie
breaking point. .\ woman without
modesty Is a monstrosity, u crying
menace. Opinions differ, however, iis
to what is und is not modest, in mat- :
tcrs of dress. To draw tho line be- .
tween comfortable and immodest
clothes may not be an easy matter.
What is considered entirly modest and
correct by the young women of today
would have been considered horrible a
few years ago. Darne fashion must
be placated at all hazards, nnd under
the guise nf comfort gets in much of
her worst and most dmoraiizing work.
Ask the men. The woman would be
surprised and perhaps astonished, if
they knew just what the men think
of the clinging abbreviated skirt.
The following clippings are taken
from a leading Pennsylvania paper:
"No woman who dresses modestly
and carries herself in seemly manner
need fear being annoyed by mashers
in the street," declares the Rev.
Norman It. Harr, pastor of the Olivet
Memorial church, in Chicago.
"The average masher will not ap?
proach a woman unless enncouraged,
either by her extreme dressing or her
actions. No woman who wears a dress
which exhibits every line of her fig?
ure can be called a modest woman."
"Condemnation of the immmodsel
dress of woman is a feature of the
report of Atlanta's vice commission.
For two months the commission has
been investigating the subject of
vice and all citizens were given mi
opportunity to appear and present
their views. The clinging skirt, the
low-cut waist and short sleeves are
among the things comdemncd. The
present mode of dress is blamed for
much of the "freshness" of men.
THOSE'* MA?ICAL SEVEN"
Mr. J. N. Herman, in a political
speech at Gate t'ity a few days ago,
gave his audience seven reasons why
a Progressive can consistently vote
for Mr. Slemp. .lust why "seven"
reasons we are not informed. Either
one of the seven, if true, would be
[sufficient. As a matter of fact
scarcely a single one of the seven is
strictly true all the way through.
Briefly stated here are the seven
First?"He was nominated by Pro?
gressive delegates whom we sent to
t he Bristol convention." The names
of thu list of delegates sent from
Tazewell includes many earnest Taft
supporters, not known as Progress?
Second?-"Mr. Slemp is a Pro?
gressive." At Chicago when the line
was clearly drawn between Mr.
Roosevelt and Mr. Taft, Mr. Slemp
joined the forces with the Taft people
who, Mr. Roosevelt says fraudulently
nominated Taft. Who, but this polit?
ical philosopher, says that "Slemp
is a Progressive." Mr. Slemp has
never said so. No one else except
Mr. Harman, so far as we know.
Third "Mr. Slemp's high moral
character. Everybody will be glad
to agree with this statement, but in
itself does not furnish sufficient
grounds fur sending Mr. Slemp to I
Congress. And this is the strong
reason of the "magical seven."'
Fourth?"By holding anti-Demo?
cratic forces together on Mr. Slemp,
we can save the district from falling
under Democratic control. Thus we
shall lay a true foundation for sue
cess in the State campaign next year
in this district at least.''
There is the milk in the cocoanut.
No principle after all in the inspii
ation of tho spell-binders in tins cam?
paign. To heat the Democrats, that's
enough. That's all.
Fifth?In this paragraph, too long
to be copied here, the old rag is
chewed - the constitutional convention
a nd the poll tax requirement for vot?
ing. .While this is not a state cam?
paign, this Btate question is dragged
in. It all goes to show what the Re?
publicans would do if th'jy had the
Sitxh?"We are for Slemp because
the Democrats didn't want us to
nominate him." That is a magnifi?
cent reason for sending a man to Con?
Seventh?"We are for Slemp be?
cause he stands for the great princi?
ple of the protection of American
labor and home industry," etc. This,
in the face of thousands and thous?
ands of mill-hands, men, women and
children working nt starvation wage.-?,
or no work nt all. They nre protect
ed, "all right". The big trusts and
corporations are protected, all right.
"American labor." Great Scott!
Tho Republican trusts and thieving
combines have filled the country with
paupor labor from Europe for years.
Hut what's the use. Add this 8th
reason," We are for Slemp because
Slemp is for us.''

NOTHING ELSE TO DO
Brother Witten, of tin? Sandy Val?
ley News as an honest man, virtually
declares himself for the Progressive
candidate, Walter Graham. What
es I e could he do? What other course
can tho honest Progressives in the
district take? To pose as a Progress?
ive and vote for Mr. Slemp, a stand?
patter -a man who aided in stealing
the nomination from the Progressive
candidate for the Presidency at Chi?
cago, according to Mr. Roosevelt's
Statement, ? a candidate who has not
uttoned a word that would indicate
that he eve.i sympathizes with the
Progressives In the least particular,
is on its very face so clearly a purely
political trick, to put upon those
who advocate it forever the stamp of
insincerity. It is political trimminig.
pure and simple. Mr. Witten has
clearly and unmistakably pointed out
the only course which can command
the respect of thinking people now
and hereafter. It is none of our fun?
eral, however, hut we make tiaste to
commend the sound judgment, hon?
esty anil consistency of the editor ol
the Sandy Valley News..
This paper called upon Mr. Slemp
last week to say whether lie expected
to vote for Mr. Roosevelt, or Mr.
Tafl. The Sandy Valley News sup?
plements this request by demanding
of Mr. Slemp that he come out anil
say clearly where he stands lie can?
not hope to be elected wit hout tin
Progressive veto. We predict that
Mr. Slemp will say nothing.He is be?
tween Iiis satanie majesty and the
briny deep I f he says he is foi
Roosevelt the Taft men will "cuss".
If he says its Taft the Roosevelt
crowd will shout. lie wiP, in ail
probability, adhere to his policy of
silence, and let the voter draw his
own conclusions, which will necessar?
ily be, that us Mr. Slemp has not
publicly repudiated Taft or his Chi?
cago record that he is still nn old
line-standpatter from Standpatters
Cen. Ayera is a Progressive Demo?
crat with a clear record. Mr. Slemp
is a stndpatter, high protective tariff
man with a record as such. Mr. Gra?
ham, bull-moose, is a Progressive?
neither Democrat or Republican?
neither Hah nor loul. Take your
choice. The issue is clean-cut now.

Dcntli of Captain Yost
On my return home from it week's
absence I learned, of the death of my
old friend, Captain John Yost, of
Baptist Valley, who died September
28th, an was laid to rest in the Dai
ley Cemetery wth the many old and
worthy citizens of that community,
who had preceeded him to the dream?
less tliiHt. Brother Yost was one of
the few "Grand Old Men" of this
generation. He did not wear n titular
miltary title, but was a real Captain
in tho Confederate army, who gal?
lantly led his men in the real service
of war. He fought at Gettysburg in
the immortal cavalry rhurge on that
bloody field. He frequently told of
his promise to his Lord that if he
would spare him through the dangers
of battle, that when he returned
home ho would assume a position o'
a soldier of the cross. True to hil
promise he enlisted in that cause and
fought a gallant tight till he received
his discharge on the 2Slh of Septem?
ber, 1912. Or rather, he was trans?
ferred from the Lord's militant army
here below to the trumphant host!
The influence of this noble Chris?
tian life will continue to be felt by
the ri-ing generation of his neighbor?
May his friends and loved one;
walk in his foot-steps, emulate his
virtues, and when the last clear col
to them is made, may they *iee thcii
