Sale of War Stamps in County Has Been Most Gratifying, anil Allot? ment Believed to Have Been Sold. The War Savings Stamp drive in [Tazewell County, according to infor? mation yesterday afternoon, is pro? gressing satisfactorily, and will no doubt be over the top, when one or two precincts in the county hove re? ported.

These lists will show who have bought tht stamps and who have not. have you had your bonds converted yet? The Tazcwell banks call especial attention to the fact that the time limit for the conversion of bonds of the first and second Liberty Loans will, soon expire. The Bank of Clinch Valley and the Tazewell National Banks have carried an advertisement in this paper for the past month call? ing the attention of the people to the fact that bonds should be pre? sented to them for conversion. If you fail to do this you lose the in? creased interest rate. Attend to this matter at once. USE YOUR CARS NEXT SUNDAY.

If necessary to use your cars in order to reach the speaking place in your community, do not hesitate to do so. A Liberty Loan meeting will be held within reach of everybody next Sunday, and every man, woman and child should attend, whether they expect to buy bonds or not. Use your car next Sunday. north Tazewell "over the top.' The Town Council of North Taze? well, at a recent meeting, found that there was a balance in the treasury of $1,000. The question came up, "What shall we do with it?' Some? body said, 'Buy War Savings Cer? tificates," and without discussion, or at least very little, it was so ordered. So far as known here, North Taze? well is the only town in this county or in this section to do such a thing. The municipality of North Tazewell has set. a good example, and in this action put their town clear over the top. BRITISH TAKE NAZARETH; 18,000 PRISONERS, 129 GUNS. The ancient city of Galilee, where Joseph plied his humble trade as a carponter and where Christ spent His childhood, was delivered from the ter? rible Turk on Friday, when Irish, En? glish and Austrailian horsemen dash? ed into it and past it in one of the most far-flung and brilliant encircling operations of all military history. Eighteen thousand Turnks were trapped like so many rats. One hun? dred and twenty guns were captured. What remains of the Turkish Nab? lus army has been cut off from all av? enues of escape save for a narrow stretch along the Jordan east of Bei san, which city also is in British hands. Many thousands of Ottomans were mowed down as they fled in panic be? fore General Sir Edmund Allanby's cavalry. Many thousands more feli as they fled straight into the mount? ed columns closing in on them. Occupation of Nazareth marks a British advance of seventy-five miles since the fall of Jerusalem. The op? eration culminating in the glorious victory which more than settles the British account with the Turks for the Kut-ol-Amura defeat, were enr ried out along a total of fully 150 miles. "Traversing the field of Armaged? don," says Allenby's report of Fri? day, received here today, "wo occupied Nazareth, Afule and Beisar, collect? ing tho disorganized masses of the enemy troops and transport from the south. I "All of the enemy's avenues of es? cape save tho Jordon fords between Beeisan and Jisrel-Damieh have been closed." And on the following day, Allanby the model crusader was able to tele? graph to the war office: "We hold Nazareth and the passag? es of the Jordon. Eighteen thousand prisoners, 120 guns counted." have you sent clothing for belgium and france?

Tazewell County's allotment has not been mndc at this writing. The amount will be about twice that of the Third Loan. This means that the man who bought a one hundred dollar bond last time must buy two one hundred dollar bonds this time, or find a buyer for the other 100-dol lar bond. You can pay in instalments if you choose, but pay cash if possible, even if you have to borrow the money, in order to save the banks extra trouble and expense. estmei EtGINIA, FRIDAY, SEPTEMBI lorrow.

IST CHURCH. Dr. Clullin, the representative of the Anti-Saloon League of America, made a strong address in thu Mthod ist church last Sunday night. There was n large audience. The speaker presentod his cause in an unique and striking manner by comparing thu war in Kurope and the "war" in this country against liq? uors. Pint, ns to the cost in money. The cost of the war to America, for the next year, he said, if it continues, will be between thirty and forty billion dollars; not "millions," mind you, but billions, nn inconceivable amount. The cost of liquor in America for the last 25 years, interest nt 0 per cent com? pounded, amounts to more than 150 billion dollars. Second, as to cost in human life. If the American army numbers as many as two million men next year, the number of fatalities, he said, will he about. 111,000 men. The number of deaths, nccrding to the best authorities, due to liquor, reaches the enormous amount of 500, 000 a year. That is to nay, about fivb limes as many men are slain by booze yearly as arc slain in battle in the greatest war of history. These loll? ing facts made a deep impression on the audience. At the close pledges were asked for the work and the sum of $150.00 was pledged, to be paid in monthly instalments. At I'oeahontns, $257.00 was given. At Riehlands on Mondnv night, $510.00.

Behind It There" Ai YOUR UNCLE SAM SHOWSjEM HOW Preparations For Taking the St. Alihicl Salient by Americans Surpasses All Powers of Imagination. The extensive preparations made by tliu American forces for tho battle of St. Mihicl salient, in which Pershing'a forces won such a signal victory, arc so stupendous that the mind ev.n hard? ly grasp it. Some idea of the immen? sity of the undertaking is gathered from the following facts. There was issued 100,000 detail maps covering in minutest detail thu character of the terrain of the St. Mihicl salient, including natural de? fenses and telling how each was maimed and by what enemy units. These niaps were corrected in some instances as Into as the day before the battle opened, and were supple? mented by 30,000 photographs. These wore for the guidance of the artillery nod infantry mid were scattered umoug the officers of thu whole army u few hours before tho zero hour. 6,000 Telephones at Work. Fivu thousand miles of wire was laid on the St. Mihicl salient nild on ita borders before the attack und Im mediutely after the Americans ud vanced 0,000 (elophoue instruments were connected with these wires throughout the battle zone. When the battle opened on the morning of Sept. 12 trucks Blurted northward at a speed of seven miles uu hour, unreeling wires across No Man's Land until they reached points where the reels had to he carried by signal Corps men afoot. Such work as this made it possible in the recent battle for American of? ficers whose troops bad Hanked the foe's trenches to telephone back, in forming the artillery of the exact lo? cation of the enemy trenches and in a few minutes bringing a deluge of metal on the buche. Telephone squads carried these lines up to the lighting front on Thursday morning and soon in the triangular battleground there was u telephone system in operation thai, would have been adequate to handle the telephone business of u city of 100,000, and it was going at lop ef? ficiency. The branch lines were con? nected with the mein axis, which was established through (he middle of the salient. Ten thousand men were bus? ily engaged in operating the system. Mnny of the phone exchanges were on wheels. Several thousand carrior pigeons supplemented the Signal Corps. We captured a tremendous quan? tity of German signal supplies, fitlo miles of German Wire, mnny switch? boards, one radio truck and numerous hatte l ies. In the midst of the battle other Signal Corps men look more than 10, 000 feel of moving film depicting war scenes and many thousands of pho? tographs. Extensive hospital facilities were arranged, including thirty-live hos? pital trains, 10,000 beds in tho ad? vanced areas, and 66,000 others fur? ther back. Happily, less than 10 pel cent of the hospital facilities were 1 needed, and therefore our surgeons and nurses were encablcd to give the I fi;.cst care to our wounded and sick, an I every attention to the German wounded. Used 1,500,000 Shells. In the course of the operation our guns fired approximately 1,500,000 shells. Forty-eight hundred trucks carried men and supplies into the lir.es. They were assisted by miles of American railroads of standard and narrow gauge and the cars were pulled by engines marked "U. S. A." In addition to restoring this big territory to rFance with an unprece? dented small force the Americans liberated two railroads and a canal from the menace of the bocho artil? lery. We took 15,IHR prisoners and the following spoils: One hundred and eleven guns, including twenty-five of large caliber and seventy-eight Austrian 77s; forty-two trei.cn inoi tara, two hundred machine guns, thir? teen trucks, including an ambulance; thirty box enrs, four locomotives, five caissons, forty wagons, and thirty-six narrow gauge errs. The quantity of captured munitions is still unestimuted, but one spot alonu yielded 4,000 shells for 77s and 860, 000 rounds of rille cartridges. Twelve thousand hand grenades were found in one dump. Four ammunition dumps were taken, but the quantity of mu? nitions in them is as yet uneslimated. Lnrge quantities of food, clothing, trinkets and many documents bring up a total which makes our first ven? ture us an individual unitl assume characteristic American proportions.

The parties alighting from the Street car walk? ed almost in front of an auto whi'dl was whizzing by the standing r.trccl car. In all cities and well regulated towns an ordinance forbids automo? biles to pass by a standing car. The auto must stop still and wait until the car starts and the track is clear, so as to avoid accidents. The Clinch Valley .Mows hns called attention to this matter more than once. The Town Council should take some notice of the danger and the possibility of injury referred to. The streets of this town are narrow and the wonder is that accidents have not already occurred. Whether the coun? cil ucts or not, let all auto drivers slack up or stop entirely when pass? ing a standing street car. CLEVELAND TRACTOR DEMON? STRATION.
