Keep your eye peeled for the price-boosting hog. He
isn't dead, but sleepeth.
Quit wondering where the war will end, and decide
when YOU are going to help start it.
Looking for a safe bank for your war-price savings,
neighbor? What's the matter with Uncle Sam's gregt
Kaiser Bill may have gone to Constantinople to give
the the Turks a course in "kultur," with a few lessons in
frightfulness as incidentals.
Tha bunch of Congressmen who propose to visit the
battle front in Frahce should be careful. The fireworks
over there are entirely different from those they are used
to in Washington.
An exchange wants to know "why it takes a woman so
long to put on the little she wears to evening functions."
Why, she has to be very particular as to location. . A
mistake would be embarrassing.
The Germans profess to regard the American army as
a 'negligible force." If they will continue to act on that
theory after Pershing and his. Sammies get into action
they will greatly hasten the end.
It is a historical truth that no industry is destroyed
without pulling down some other in its fall. The District
of Columbia goes "dry" and now watch the withering of
those choice congressional mint beds.
The effort to add a yellow stripe to the'national flag
is meeting with a mighty cool reception. It can't be made
to harmonize with the present colors. Fact is, yellow
isn't in the American col.pr scheme.
Three-cent postage is all right, and we will pay it with
a grin if it will hell) win the war. Still we can't hell) think
ing, there should be some way to extract a few dollars
from the tons of matter carried out of Washington under
the franking system.

"Pals First" which comes to the
Sumter Opera House Wednesday,
November 14 has already been hail
ed as a comedy t'riumph. It is from
the prolific mind of Francis Perry
Elliott that "Pals First" emanated,
and it hais been prepared for the
stage by Lee Wilson Dodd, also the
author of "Bunker Bean." Its New
York run of 200 performances andl
Chicago run of 135 lperformances
proved it to be chock full of good
wholesome fun, with scarcely a line
or situation that does not bring forth
a hearty laugh, not to mentionth
'ro the theatregoer who reveals in
tears, sobs and heart throbs, "Pals
First" promises little, but to the
average auditor, who finds sufficiency
of the satdder things of life, in life
itself, ."Pals First" will prove a wvel
come andl otherwise dlelightful oasis
in the dlesert of depressing nmelo-.
dIrama and light headed musical
Mr. Tim Murphy pre-eminent fav
orite in the theatre, will be seen in
the leading part of "Pals First," and
he will be assisted by a fitting coterie
of players in unfolding the story of
the play, a story which is purely and
