In spite of all this, hegetsmuoh joy ont of life, and keeps himself well informed on tho current topics of the day, and is an unusually interesting conversationist. His optimism may in a measure, be attributed to the tender care he has always received at the hands of his family, and to the thoughtfulness of his many friends who are now hooinit that his recent misfortune will prove of a a minor nature and that he will be up and about again." James Faulkenberry, County Sur veyor and acting Highway Engineer, accompanied by Mr. Ellis, of the State Highway Departmeut, inspected the survey of the proposed State High way from Glover to Centerville Mon day and part of Tuesday, meeting with the County Court, which was in session transacting business in regards the locating of the prison labor camp between Lesterville and the county line and such other road business that needed attention. Mr. Ellis, on be half of the State, approved the sur vey and location of the Centerville Glover road, and etated that as the court had made all necessary orders and arrangements it Would probably not be more than ten days or two weeks from that date . until the con vict labor contracted for would be at work on, the road. A site for the camp of the convicts was secured from Mrs. Medlin on Mill UreeK. Thirty convicts will be used to start with in clearing right of way. Mr. Ellis was well pleased with tho man ner in which the Court was handling road matters in this county, alid stal ed that considering everything our country was making splendid progress in setting to work on the roads, as there was always a lot of details to he arranged which necessarily teqmred time. Mr. Ellis and Mr. Faulkenberry went from here to Ellington, return ing next day via Redford, but did not definitely decide on the location of that road. As soon as the Survey - or can find the time the extension of the State Highway from the Raytield farm to Black will be located and sur veyed. Reynolds County Outlook Last Monday fifty-four entrained young men left Ironton on tram No, 32 for Jefferson Barracks. AH the business houses of the town were closed from one till three 3 o'clock and virtually the whole population o our little city attended the departur of the boys who go to aid in uphold ing the holy cause of freedom and flnmnrncv. Brother Kanouse's Fife and Drum Corps formed in the- cour house grounds and marched thens to the railroad station, leading an as semblage of at least five hundred citi zens, a score or more of nutos lengtn enlng the lfne. The sun shone fierce ly down, but cool breezes from tue south and west tempered the heat and made endurable the half mile march. At tho station there wn an hour's wait. The train was behind time these days the rulo, not the exception and every available inch of shade was utilized by the perspiring throng. But there were no fretful complaints; light laugh and flippant speech were absent; sober determination was on every face. The young men about to bid good-by.e to home ana Kinarea were the cheeriest of the crowd. Mother were there; fathers and sis ters were there; sweethearts were there; friends were there-there to send them away with cheer in their hearts, prayers for their welfare ana hone for a happy return, in me in torval of waiting ladles and gentlemen enlivened the occasion with patriotic UI.M omraailva of the spirit pre vailing.

In the great battle or battles now going on in France that is turniug tbe part the allies have played on the de fensive to one of offensive, our boys are now taking a part. We know it by the casualty lists that are being printed, though in most cases the casualties noted are a month old. By reading the paper carefully we have also seen that the 89 th Division and the 35th Division have been put into the Second Army Corps and that is in the fight. Many of our boys are in those two Divisions, and we are hour ly praying for them in their homes that God will make them brave and courageous in battle, and in their suf ferings which they must endure, and also morally brave that they may show the enemy and our allies what it means for earnest Christian men to battle for the right. May the God of right go with them, and may we work and pray here at home without ceas ing, while they fight on the front lines, and together we will make the world better. Louis Robinson, Co.

"Baby" Marie Osborne, the charm ing little Pathe star, is more capti vating than ever in "Dolly Does Her Bit'" a timely story with a Red Cross side light, which will be shown at the Academy Theatre, Saturday, July 27. 'Baby" Marie is ideally suited for the role of '-Dolly," which she plays in this attractive and youthful drama. Her supporting cst is in thorough harmony with the little star and the results achieved are exceptionally good from every standpoint. The story deals with the adventures , of Dolly and a mechanical doll, which is to be auctioned at a Red Cross ben fit. The doll comes to grief, through no fault of Dolly's, who decides to take its place to keep the Red Crots from losing through the doll tragedy. Her subsequent adventures are de lightfully startling. . The picture is full of ehildisn inge nuity, thrills, comedy, with an under onrrent of sterling patriotism which give It an added appeal.
