Science prostituted to wholesale, murder is the diabolical scheme with which Germany has sought to destroy civilization in order that on the ruins it might build a world-controlling, autocratic, atheistic power. All that German scientists have been able to achieve has been, by the German government and the German people, prostituted to the killing and the maiming of millions in order that Germany might conquer and loot the world. In the air, on the land and under the sea every device which the chemis. and the engineer have been able to devise for bringing Buffering and sor? row upon the world has been put into ?Hoot by German experts. All that the whole German nation has accom? plished in the past in the development of science has been prostituted to the destruction of moral forces at homo and to the murder of millions of peo? ple on the battlefield. It has been said that this is a war of science, but, broadly speaking, wo are not cngagud in war, for the fight to which this nation ami our allies have dedicated their lives is not a war such as the world has ever known. This a campaign by Germany of deliberately, definitely-planned, long-gloriftcd-in murder. This is a campaign of frightfulness which finds expression in ruthless de? struction of every country over which the rotten-souled armies of Germany have inarched. This is a campaign in which Ger? many has glorified in its power to in? dict suffering untold upon women and children, in which it has ruthlessly shot the agud and infirm, in which it has destroyed churches and cathe? drals with the same gloating glee of the demon with which Germans have destroyed womanhood and childhood. This is not, therefore, a war of science; it is a light in which science as expressed through chemistory and engineering, is being used to the ut? most power of human ingenuity, aid? ed by every influence which the devil himself can put into effect to enublc Germany to make more frightful its hell-devised and hell-begotten plan of mil rder. We have been compelled to meet German science with greater science. We have been forced to find a way to master its work in the air, on the land and under the sea; and the science of Americans and of our allies will yet prove as far superior to the sci? ence of Germany in its campaign of murder as American honor exceeds thw block dishonor of Germany. As every telegraphic click across the Atlantic brings a new toll of death and of suffering our hearts should be .Heeled to an unbending and unbend able determination that Germany ami che German people shall pay to the utmost extent of human power the penalty of their crimes, not only be? cause they deserve punishment us the blackest criminals in human history, but in order that civilization may be safeguarded for the future. Every word of peace spoken in I America or in the countries of our allies is uttered by some one who is a pro-German at heart, whatever may be the disguise under which he seeks clothed in the livery of Heaven, to do the devil's work. False to the teachings of God him? self, false to the history of all human? ity, fnlsc to every man who has died and to every man who has been wounded on the battlefields in defense VIRGINIA: In the C ork's Office of the Circuit Court of Tazewell coun? ty, in vacation, the 25th day of September, 1U18.

Keesee, Grat ton Keesee nnd Lena Keesee, the last two of whom are Infants un? der the age of twenty-one lcars, Defendants. Tho object of the above styled suit is to obtain a decree for the sale of the interest of Grntton Keesee in al of that certain piece or parcel oi jam! situate in Baptist Valley, in Tazewell County, Virginin, on tho North side of the public rond, upon which the said Gratton Keesee nnc bis mother, Sallie Margaret Keesee now reside, which contains about 15( acre*, and which was conveyed to thi said Sallie Margaret Keesee for he: life, and the remainder nfter hei death to the asid Grntton Keesee, hj deed bearing date the 7th day of July, 1917, and which deed is of rec ord in the office of (be Clerk of th< Circuit Court of Tazewell County Virginia, in Deed Book 83. page 80.

C. W. GREEVER, Clerk. IGrecver, Gillespie and Divine, p. q. Sept.27-?? of civilization, false to the honor of womanhood and the snfoty of child? hood, is every man or woman who utters; one word suggestivo of peace without punishment. False is every man who even for on? moment thinks that an unbeaten, unrepentant, unpunished Germany, would not for all the centuries to come be a blot upon civilization ami an exerlnsting disgrace to those who profess to believe in that righteous wrath, which every honest-heurted man and woman should have as we contemplate the boundless woe and unvoicabls sorrow with which Ger? many has tilled the world, merely that its people might become the murder? ers, the outragers, the looters of all mankind for personal and national aggrandizement. It should seem that even Almighty God would to such spineless moral degenrates or cow? ards as those who favor peace without punishment say, "Because you are neither hot or cold I will spew you out of my mouth." ON TO BERLIN, AND DEATH TO GERMANISM.?Manufacturer's Rec? ord. THE FORDSON AT WORK. A number of people went out on Wednesday to see the Fordson Trac? tor perform on or.e of the I'eery farms. The tractor was drawing .'7 disks in corn stubble, and, us some? one put it, "tearing the ground all lo pieces." Being two sets of disks- - one behind the other, it was double disking, doing double the necessary work of, say, six horses, and doing it well, with only one man?the driver, in this instance, Mr. Dribble. Under reasonably favorable conditions, such as prevailed at this demonstration, tho tractor would cover some 25 acres n day, it was claimed. And then, too, a harrow can be attached, and both operations?disking and harrowing?be performed at the same time. The Fordson seems no longer an experiment in its field. On lands, reasonably smoothe and not too steep the machine is a great labor saver and time saver. Mr. A. J. Higgin bothnm, said to be one of tho very best farmers in the county, was pres? ent and much pleased with the per? formance of the Fordson. SIDNEY C. HARM AN DEAD. Sidney C.
