PATRIOTIC RALLY WILL BE
HELD HERE MARCH 30TH
Tazewell Military Company, In Connection
With Military Band, Will Drill on Main
Street, and Act as Escort to Con?
gressman Slemp, the Speaker.
Tazewell is planning to have a pa?
triotic celebration on the 30th, in be?
half of the many war activities now
engaging the attention of the coun?
try. Congresman C. B. Slemp, of the
Ninth District, has been secured as
the orator of the day and will make
an address in the Court He"?? at 1
An effort is being made to get a
band, and those in charge, are confi?
dent that one can be secured. It is
possible that a military band can be
gotten, announcement of which will
be made later.
A feature of the day's program's
will be the exhibition drill of the Taze
well Rifles, the home-guard organiza?
tion. It is the purpose of the com?
pany to march to the station and
meet the sneaker and the band, and
return to Tazewell and give an ex?
hibition drill on the street. The com?
pany is now fully equipped, ready for/
service, and each man will be at his
best on the 30th. Tazewell county
people are proud of the organization,
composed entirely of young men of
the county, most of whom are resi?
dents of the town of Tazewell or live
near by. With the band leading,
with the company fifty-odd strong,
with rifles, bayonets, belts, etc., the
parade will be down main street and
it is Imped will be as good a showing
as the spectacular celebration here on
last fourth of July.
Mr. Slemp will arrive in the morn?
ing from Washington and will have a
message that every man, woman and
child in the county should hear. He
has been loyal to President Wilson
and the administration in the war
measures that have come up in con?
gress, and the people generally feel
grateful to him for this service. He
is not coming to Tazewell as the Re?
publican candidate for Congress, but
as an American citizen, willing to do
all possible to win the war for free?
An effort will be made to have the
stores observe holiday at least part of
the day Saturday.
Make your arrangements to come
to the meeting on the 30th and help
in arousing the people to the serious?
ness of the situation we arc now fac?
ing in respect to the prosecution of

Does your alfalfa get killed in the

Of course the war is occupying
much space, but we all must still eat.
if your alfulfa kills in winter plant

SUGGESTED CHANGES IN TUE
COUNTY FARM POLICY.
Editor th News:
For more than twenty years I have
felt that s<Ame changes should be
made in the policy of managing and
conducting the County Farm. After
consulting with Mr. McGrnw ns to
what changes he would suggest, bas?
ed on his long experience as mana?
ger of the farm, I have decided to
call attention of those in charge to
these changes, some of which have
been suggested by the retiring Su?
1st. The purpose of the purchase
and equipment of the County farm is
to furnish a home for the Worthy
and the Unworthy, who have no other
means of support.
2nd. No surplus revenue arising
from the County Farm should bo paid
into the County Treasury for other
purposes until the needy on the farm
are provided for.
3rd. There is imperative need for
the erection of sucli other buildings
on the farm as will enable the Su?
perintendent to keep victims of tu?
berculosis and other contagious dis?
eases entirely separated from others;
that will provide quiet and comfort
for the old people, restrictions for the
immoral and bettpr sanitary condi?
tions for all.
In order that these suggestions and
other necessary measures may be in?
telligently presented to the Hoard of
Supervisors I suggest that said board
at its neet meeting, appoint a com?
mittee to examine and report to the
Board its recommendations for the
guidance of the Board in any chang?
es and improvements that ought to be
made. 1 further suggest that at least
three men and two women should be
named on that committee, and that
one of the male members be a phy?
While we are looking faithfully to
the interests of our present soldiers
and their dependents., let us not for?
get the worthy old veterans in the
battle of life who frequently find a
home on the County Farm, who thru
misfortune have been deprived of the
means of support.

WHAT SHALL THE ANSWER HE?
America is made up of 100,000,000
units of individual men and women.
It has been well said that God does
not know Almerica as America, ex?
cept as He knows you and me and
every individual who in the aggregate
You are America to the extent of
your individuality. Your responsibil?
ity in this world crisis is exactly the
saVnc as that, of America as a whole.
America must put forth every
ounce of its strength to save itself,
but America will fail to do this to the
extent, that any single individual lails
to do his or her part fully.
Viewed from this angle, are you
truly an American or are you merely
a hanger-on, shouting perhaps with
the crowd, but doing no real effective
service in this, the greatest crisis
since man's creation.
Go deep down into your soul to up?
hold the government, to equip and
sustain our soldiers and to enlighten
What sacrifice am I making to
match the sacrifice of the soldiers who
give up borne and endure untold hard?
ships and offer their lives to protect
What am I doing to increase the
output of the things needed for war ot?
to sustain the nation in its stupen?
Am I seeking personal gain of
higher wages, or shorter hours, or
larger profits merely for my own in?
Am I consecrating every ounce of
my strength, every power of my bo
ing toward arousing the nation, to?
ward quickening latent patriotism in?
to a living flame, toward increasing
food protluction, or lessening food
consumption and waste, or towards
the building of ships, the increased
output of steel and iron and coal and
chemicals and machinery, the expan?
sion and at the same time the conser?
vation of transportation facilities by
rail, water and highway?
Am I adjusting my family expenses
by cutting out every unnecessary
thing that money thus saved may
be dedicated to the nation's use
through Liberty Bonds, Red Cross or
Y. M. C. A. work or religious activi?
Am I merely a casual looker-on, an
unthinking benst, with no realization
of my individual responsibility to God
and man, or am I consecrating all
that is in me, all my powers of mind
and body, to this great task, the most
momentous to which intankind has
ever been cnlled?
Am I a shirker or a slacker, a phy?
sical, mental or a financial coward, or
am I a man or a woman into whom

PLANTING SMALL POTATOES.
In answer to an inquiry: It is
safest to plant potatoes of good,
smoothe marketable size. However,
small potatoes of a large stock or va?
riety, may produce a good crop. A
sire from a large breed, although a
little undersized, may produce large
off spring "true to the blood." So with
grain and vegetables, etc. Plant the
small potatoes if you can't get large
ones. Cut about two eyes to ti.e piece,
leaving each piece as large as possi?
ble, for this piece is food for the plant
until it makes leaves above the
Planting Potato Peelings.
One man says: "I made a fine
crop of Irish potatoes one season
from potato peelings. What do you
think of this plan?" In very rich,
well prepared soil it is entirely possi?
ble to grow potatoes from tho peel.
We never tried it, but see no good
rehson, under favorable conditions,
why the plan would not work. Try a
row this senson and see what will
happen. Should seed potatoes be very
scarce nnd high (which is not the
case this year), it might be economy
to plant the peel, and eat the pota?

ple of this section:
Camp Lee, Va., Feb. 12, 1918.
Jty Dear Brother:
You asked me to write you some?
thing about what the Bed Cross is
doing here in Camp Lec. I have visit?
ed sick friends at the hospital here
frequently and have had a good op?
portunity of seeing the Red Cross at
To one who has stood as 1 have
and watched one of those nurses go?
ing down long rows of cots filled with
stricken and helpless boys, dressing ?
ugly surgical wounds, propping up
the head of some poor fellow who is-'
n't breathing easily, or smoothing .
out a bed that has become uncomforl- I
able, and doing it as carefully and j
tenderly as his mother or sister pos-!
sibly could, it is inconceivable that
any one could be so ignorant or ma?
licious as to propagate such lies as
you mention being circulated. A man
from your county who has undergone
a severe illness at the hospital here
said that it would not be healthy for
anybody to make a disrespectful re?
mark about a Red Cross nurse in his
But the Red Cross work does not
stop with caring for the sick. It
maintains a field manager and stall'
of workers here, as in all the other
camps. Through this organization a
soldier may secure expert assistance
in practically any problem that may
arise. For instance he may make an
allotment to his folks nt home und it
is slow in reaching them. He can
take it up with these Red Cross work?
ers and have it attended to at once,
and if the homcfolks must have mon?
ey before the allotment can reach
them they will see that they get it.
Or perhaps his family is about to be]
thrown out because the rent has not
been paid. I have been told of a num?
ber of cases where the van had al?
ready driven up to haul the furniture
away, when a Red Cross worker ap?
peared and hung up a sign: "This is
a home of a soldier," and ordered the
Driver away. Or again, perhaps the
soldier (rets a telegram that his child
is dying "come at once." Possibly he
hasn't a cent, (this is the normal con?
dition of a soldier.) The Red Cross
organization in his camp will see that
he gets the money to go home on.
These are only a few of the things
that the Red Cross does for the sol?
dier at home and in the camp. To us
it is a comforting thought that when
we go out to moet the great test
"over there," behind the soldier of
death and pitilessness will advance
the soldier of life and mercy, loving
and tender still.
