BUY LIBERTY BONDS! BUY LIBERTY BONDS! BUY LIBERTY BONDS! BUY LIBERTY BONDS! ESTABLISHED 1845. Sidney M. B. Coulling and Wm. E. Peery, Jr., Answered the Call ? Pneumonia Claims Many Tazewell Boys. The community of Tazewell has experienced its first casualty in the great war. Last Sunday afternoon the remains of Sidney Mathias Bax? ter Coulling, Jr., were laid to rest in the Jeffersonvillc cemetery?a Taze? well contribution and sacrifice to the cause of world freedom. As stated in this paper last week, young Coulling was taken ill at Fort Sloeum, New York, where he had been in training. He was ill only a few days. His parents, Judge and Mrs. S M. B. Coulling, of Tazewell went to New York last week and accom? panied the body home. The deceased was born in Tazewell on the ISth of July, 1890. Before en? listing in the service he was a prac? ticing attorney in Wyoming County, West Virginia, a member of the law firm of Bailey and Coulling. Mr. Bailey is prosecuting attorney of Wyoming county, and Mr. Coulling Lad been his assistant. Sidney Coulling graduated from Tazewell High School when he was 15 years old. In 1912 he graduated from Humpden Sidney, taking the I debater's medal and orator's medal, one in the junior end one in the se? nior year. In 191ti he graduated from Wash-1 ington and Lee, taking the first law j prize. The summer of his graduation j lie spent as law clerk for Judge Mar? tin Burks, who was then revising the Code of Virginia. As soon as he ac? quired a residence which would enable him to obtain a certificate to practice law in West Virginia, he commenced practice with Mr. Bail? ey and continued until he went to Fort Sloeum. His vacation.'-, and time between schools were spent as a stenographer, first in the law office of Messrs. Chapman and Cillcspie at Tazewell .and last in the office of Cook, Litz .raid Harmon at Welch. The deceased, attho physically dis? qualified for general military service, was determined to bear a man's part in making the world free, and enter? ed the limited service at .Fort Slo? eum, New York, where he had been only two weeks when was seized by the fatal malady. . Before leav? ing Fort Sloeum the usual funeral honors were paid him by the mili? tary, and Mr. Paul Mnrkman, a mem? ber of bis company, was detailed to accompany '.he remains to Tazewell. Funeral services were held in the Methodist church Sunday afternoon. The services were in charge of the Rev. IL E. Kelso, pastor of the M. E. church, assisted by Rev. C. R. Brown and Dr. Long, of Martha Washington College. As a token of the esteem in which the deceased and the surviving members of his family are held, the church was crowded to the doors. A profusion of flowers, of many and beautiful de? signs, were sent by friends of the family. Lieutenant Louis R. Coulling, the only brother of the deceased, came to Tazewell from Camp Cordon to be present at the funeral and remained here several days. In addition to his parents, Judge and Mrs. S. M. B. Coulling the deceased is survived by two sisters, Misses Martha and Mary Coulling. Wm. E. Peery, Jr., Dead. Mr. Wm. E. Peery, of North Taze? well, was advised last Sunday of the death of his son, Wm. E. Peery, jr., at Camp Mott, Pa. The remains were expected here last night, the interment to bo near the old home east of town this morning. He enter? ed the service of bis country several months ago, going to the University of Virginia for mechanical training. He was later transferred to the camp in Pennsylvania. His brother, Thomas A. Peery, who I has been ill at Camp Humohrey, was granted a ten days' furlough and is recuperating at Ins home near Five Oaks; He lias bad Spanish influenza at Camp Humphreys. The remains of Sergeant Estil Hurt, Graham boy, who died at Camp Mendc Monday night of influenza, will bo brought to his former home at Sword's Creek for burial this week. Corporal Newman Back. i Corporal John Newman, son of B. 1 M. Newman, Esq., of Graham, who has been in France with the Amer? ican Expeditionary Forces, has re? turned to the United States and is now in a hospital in Washington. ASLEEP ON THE FIELD OF HON? OR. Two gold stars?one for Sidney : B.-.xter Coulliag, who died at Fort Slocutn, New York, October 4th; the o'.her for William Edward Peery the Third, who died at Camp Dix Octo? ber 5th, testify with mute eloquence that two of Tazewell's gallant lads are asleep on the field of honor. Upon two homes a cloud hns descended, through which the light filters. And this community has laid its first su? preme offering on an altar that rep? resents not only local and national sentiments of patriotism, but the ! common good of all mankind. It was not the fate of these brave young men that they should fall in battle, but that will not diminish the honor that will forever attach to their names; it will but lend to hallow their memories in the hearts of the Taze well people. With the surge of high adventure in their blood and with the desire of the unafraid to strike for the things their country held dearer than life and peace, they were de? nied the privilege of contact with the foe. Thoy were eager to go across; they were eager to meet the Hun. They could have claimed exemption. Indeed, had their physical condition been known by the authorities, they would not have been accepted. But they scorned even the implication of slackers. Tl.oy would not be de? nied. This record will stand to their credit as long as the history of our participation in the war shall endure. Their chivalrous dust sleeps in na? tive earth, each fair young body wrapped in its country's flag of stars. Wh? youth was yet weaving the fabric of their dreams, with faith unspoiled and hope flashing the way, ihoy started on the Beautiful Adven? ture. ?** ATTENDED FODD CONFERENCE AT STAUNTON. Geo. C. Peery, local food adminis? trator, returned Sunday from a con? ference of the food administrators of the State, held at Staunten last week. "Mr. Hoover, was present and ad? dressed the conference. His ad? dress," said Air. Peery, "impressed his hearers with, his intense earnest? ness, his absolute mastery of ouu food situation and his desire to do impartial justice as between the many conflicting interests involved. "Our food problem for the year ending July 1, 1919, is to ship over? seas 17,050,000 tons of food as against 11,820,000 tons last year.! This necessitates the most thorough conservation all along the line. The gospel of the clean plate must be practiced in every home. The prime duty of every Ameri? can is to help win the war. Food for our soldiers and our allies is in? dispensable to the winning of the war. America must furnish 50 per cent more food than she did last year. "Let every American save food ev? ery day to the utmost, so that it may be sent to our soldiers nnd our al? lies overseas." U. S. COURT FOR OCTOBER POST? PONED. " Mr. T. A. Gillespie, United States Commissioner, has been notified that Judge McDowell's court for October at Big Stone Gap has been postponed to May 19th. All parties concerned have been notified to this effect. The postponement was made on account of the prevailing epidemic. FOR VICTO Send Pershing Berlin!

IN FLANDERS FIELDS By LIcut.-Coloncl John McRao, of tlu< Canadian Expeditionary Forces. 1? Flanders Holds, the poppies grow Between the crosses, row on row, That mark our place; and in the sky The larks, still bravely sinning, fly, Scarce heard amid the guns below. We are the dead. Short days ago We lived, felt dawn, saw sunset glow. Loved and were loved; and now we lie In Flanders fields. Take up our quarrel with the foe! To you, from failing hands, we throw The torch. Be yours to lift it high! If ye break faith with usiXo die We shall not sleep, though poppies blow In Flanders Melds, (AN ANSWER.) By C. B. GALBREATH. In Flanders fields the cannon boom And fitful flashes light the gloom. While up above, like eagles, fly The fierce destroyers of the sky; With stains the earth wherein you lie Is redder than the poppy bloom, In Flanders fields. Sleep on, ye brave. The shrieking shell, The quaking trench, the startled veil, The fury of the battle hell Shall wake you not, for all is well. Sleep peacefully for all is well. Your flaming torch aloft we bear, With burning heart an oath we swear To keep the faith, to fight it through. To crush the foe or sleep with yon. In Flanders fields. Keep Ye the Faith?

Germany, addressed to President Wilson, ashing for an armistice on land, on water and in the air: "The German government requests the President of the United States of America to take steps for resto? ration of peace, to notify all belliger? ents of this request, and to invite them to delegate plenipotentiaries for the purpose of taking up negotiations The German government accepts as a basis for peace negotiations, the program laid down by the President of the United States in bis message to Congress of January 8, li>18, and in his subsequent pronouncement, particularly in his address of Septem? ber 27, 1018. In order to avoid fur? ther bloodshed, the German govern? ment requests to bring about imme? diate conclusion of a general armis? tice on laud, on water and in the air. Wilson's Reply. Sil-: I have the honor to acknowl? edge, on behalf of the President, your note of October 8th, enclosing the communication from German gov? ernment to the President: And I am instructed by the President to re request you to make the follow? ing communication to the Imperial German Chancellor: "Before making reply to the re? quest of the imperial German gov? ernment and in order that the reply shall be as candid and straightfor? ward as the momentous interests in? volved require the President of the United Slates deems it necessary to assure himself of the exact meaning of the note of the Imperial Chancel? lor. Does the Imperial Chancellor mean that the Imperial German gov? ernment accept the terms laid down the President in his address to the Congress of the United Slates on the Hth of January last, and in subsepu |ent addresses, and that its object in entering into discussions would only I be to agree upon the practical de I tails ?

The good I faith of any discussion would mani? festly depend upon the consent of the Central Powers immediately to withdraw their forces everywhere from invaded territory, i "The President also feels that, he is justified in asking whether the I Imperial Chancellor is speaking mere i ly for the constituted authorities of the Empire who have so far conducted ithe war. lie deems the answer to j these questions vital from every point of view.

Because of the great sorrow throughout the nation on ac? count of the deaths of so large a number of line boys in the training camps, the enthusiasm for the success of the Fourth Liberty Loan lias been greatly diminished, as a consequence of which the greatest calamity pos? sible threatens?the failure of the. loan to go over the top. In view of this distressing and critical condition it is up to ev? ery man and woman in Tazewell County to double their efforts and sec that the great County of Tazewell can answer here when the roll is called at the close of the campaign. In spite of the misfortunes that may befall us tit home, we must not overlook the boys in the mud and trenches in France who are fighting our battles for us, and who are keeping the bloody hands of the German brutes from the throats of our line young girls. One of the Tro? phy train speakers said Monday afternoon that we have sent our boys to France with the promise to stand by them, and that if we fail in the least to give them every possible means of pro? tection we are nothing less than I murderers. ; Don't forsake the boy in his [dilema. If you do you had bet? ter hide your face when the I "boys come marching home." j The Hun's on the run; we've igot him begging; let's all strike I now while the iron's hot and get 1 it over with. ! SELL BONDS! BUY BONDS. A telegram from the " Liberty Loan" office in Richmond of this date urges that all committccmen put In? creased energy into the campaign. Success of the Eourth Liberty Lonn is as essential to war success as it was when the first campaign was launched. The hoys at the front are pulling up the man power; it is up lo us at home to put up the money power?both are absolutely essential. The boys are not only ready to drive on to victory, but anxious to do so. Our willingness and ability lo buy Bonds is the measuro of our fidelity to them in this the greatest crisis in our history. The fact that Germany cried for peace, only emphasizes the impor? tance of hitting a harder blow. ' The world cried for peace in 1914, but Germany would not hear. The blood of millions of innocent persons, including the blood of our own boys, cries out from the ground, declaring that the ? inhuman slayers shall be shackeld before peace is made with them. NOW, white the enemy begins to feint and ask for peace, NOW is the time for liberty to drive home the blade that will make a long and lasting peace. After the war there will bo three classes of men among us: those who went, those who supported them loy? ally, and the slacker. Make your choice. Buy bonds lo your limit. C. R. BROWN, Chairman. BUY LIBERTY BONDS. BUSINESS MEN ENDORSE LOAN Tazewell Citizens Toll Why You. Should and Must Subscribe to The Greatest Security and Protection on Earth. 1 he following expression!) of opin? ion have been obtained from the bus? iness men and nuancier* of Tazewell by Mr. Will Kd. 1'.y, chairman of the JofTorsonvillc precinct Liberty Lonn Committee: ''We Cannot Afford to Fail in Thin." In just eight days, lo wit. on the IDth day of October, I be campaign for the Fourth Liliei'ty Loan is to elose. Tazc well's quota of $.r(rit;,0(i(i. aa I Utldcrslanil, i.< not more than Olio-third subscribe.;. As every ap? peal lo Tazewell County has been fully met, we cannot afford to fail in this (be most important call. While nil are expected to aid in this drive, the appeal is specially to men of financial ability. Let iih nil do our best to "go over the lop." A. ST. GLAIR. ''The People Realise Hie Importance.'' I believe that the people of Taze? well county realize the importance of the Fourth Liberty Loan being fully subscribed, and I feed sure that Ibis issue will be over subscribed in the same loyal manner and tri tint same extent that the other three loans were. "A Solemn Duly to liny Honda." 1 consider it not only a high privi? lege, but a solemn duly lo buy Lib? erty Bonds. The reasons for this nie too numerous lo mention; but I Klio? gest that aside from Hie fast it will show you are behind the Govern? ment, by contributing to the great task of WINNING THE WAR, will be the satisfaction enjoyed in the thought of aiding in a work to be well mid thoroughly done. Arc you going to be iimong the number lo shirk your responsibility in this critical hour, when the Nation is calling so loudly for help? Tazewell County cannot afford not to go "over the top"?she bus nev .? failed to respond yet, and if you are a 100 per cent American you will subscribe to the very limit of your ability. The answer is up to you. HENRY PRESTON. "Shall If Be Said That We Failed to Back (he Boys to the Limit?" Shall it he said of us who consti? tute the "Home Army" that at least 75 per cent are not lending their dol? lars to their Government to back up their nous and brothers "over there" to the limit? Can we afford to have it said that a single man, woman or child places the dollar above our own flesh and blood? A man who buys a $100.00 Liberty Bond who can alford, with, n little sacrifice, to buy a $200.00 bond, is only 50 per cent, patriotic. Don't talk patriotism over here un? less your money is talking victory "over there." R. C. CHAPMAN. "Nothing Bui Absolute Victory." To the people of Tazewell County: The war is not over. The Imperial Chancellor's peace Uilk is, in our opinion, insincere. Our President's leply to the Chancellor will expose German hypocrisy. We want noth? ing but. absolute victory. Therefore, if we love America, if we love our Hag; if we love our homes; if we love our boys who are fighting und giving their lives for humanity and freedom, we must pur? chase Liberty Bonds to tho utmost. Yours for Victory, W. C. THOMPSON. ?People Must Take Bonds to the Ex? tent of Their Credit." My experience as a solicitor for ' Liberty bonds is very unpleasant and j disappoint ing, for two reasons: First, I am so often asked to see jthem again, though I had nothing else to do, and as though no obligation is on any one but the solicitor to make the loan a success, and second, the excuse that they have no money to spare, as though thi.s were a vol? untary decision that eifects only the subscriber. My experience, therefore, leans me to conclude that unless the people realize that they must take bonds to the extent of their credit instead of I BUY LIBERTY BONDS. their surplus, Tasewell Comity will run below her apportionment. J. N. HARM AN. "Success of Loan of Greater Import? ance Than Any Other Yet Made." 1 regard the success of the Fourth Liberty Loan of greater importance than any cull heretofore made by the [Government. The American and Al? lied forces could better afford to lose the great battle on the Western front I than for this loan to fail. The fail uro of this loan would oncourngo Ger? many and would lower thee morale of the Allied forces, ami in this way prolong the wnr ami result intho death of perhaps a million of our men. If this loan goes over the top with a hurrah and vim if will hasten the end of the war and save many of our men from death. It is the patriotic duty of every citizen of this county to subscribe to this loan to the utmost limit of his ability and to see that his neighbor does likewise. We are not giving hut lending our money, with the absolute assurance it will bo returned to us with interest, so we are not. muking much snerilico in subscribing. Hut even if we should never gel it back, ??hall we let that influence our ac? tion when the lives of our buys are at stako? Let us act, act promptly, act. nobly, act. fully in the matter, and sustain and save our boys, and end this war by crushing (iermuny and bringing a lusting peace to Hie world. .1. W. CHAPMAN. "A SURE Investment." Why should we buy bonds'.' Pa? triotism demands it. It is the safest investment, in the world. When the war is over these bonds are the ONF. thing sure to hold their own or go higher in the markets. W. T. G1LLESP1E. "It'? Not Duly Patriotism. Hut Good Business. R. t). CROCKETT: "It can not be successfully denied that every person should purchase Liberty Bonus for the following reasons: (1) The spirit of patriotism, inhe? rent in all the citizens of thi;. coun? ty, demands that, we support our government and the boys from our county who have ofTored t<> make, nnd are milking, the supreme SllCI'illco for us. (2) It is good business. After the war prices will be readjusted down? ward, anil property values will shrink. H is believed that tangible personal property, when the rend justmont has taken place, will have decreased in value about one-half, ami money invested in Liberty Bonds now will then purchase about, twice US much property ?i nt the present and in Hie meantime be drawing in? terest. For instance, Mr. Hoover bus said Hint wheat, which in now selling at $2.20, will then sell at $1.25." "II is Our Duty lo Do So." GEO. C PEERY, in answer lo the question, why should every American buy Liberty Honda, says: "We .should buy Liberty Bonds be? cause if is our duly to do so. The one task of supremo Importance that now confronts every American citizen is lo help win tho wnr and free the World once and for all from the men? ace of llunisiu. Every act of fivery American should now he gauged by the question: Will it help tawin the war? Money iB as oscntiltl as sol? diers. We have the soldiers. Their courage and vulor have already brought pride lo every American heart. We must not fail them in putting up the money necessary to victory. Every fellow must 'come across' with his part."
