"After Germany has won, the Unit? ed Stales will find herself confront? ed with an indemnity, which will about equal the entire amount ex? pended by Germany in the whole war. For every loan to the Allies, for ev? ery bullet, shell, every Kim. every conceivable item of war material shipped by America to the Allies, (here will be an accounting in gold." The above statement from the Ger? man Chancellor shows what we nar? rowly escaped. Would you rather lend your dol? lars to America, or give them to the Hun? TAZEWELL LAGGING. It Is inconceivable and unbelievable that the Fourth Liberty Loan shall fail to go over the top. All other Joans and subscriptions have measur? ed up fully and as said above, it is unthinkable that this Fourth Loan should fail. No doubt the inlluen/.a j epidemic has diverted the minds of. the people for tin- moment awa> I from every other consideration. Now,I that the worst seems about over, this) hindrance, if it was a hindrance,! should hinder no longer. Alone; with; other sections Tazewell has slowed' down, subscriptions are slow, and | the amount subscribed so far is away i below what it should be. There is no scarcity of money in this county.) This is the lime of the year that, money pours in, anil there is no good reason in the world why 4%A per cent' Government bonds should not seit j like hot cakes, particularly at this stage of war conditions in France1 and other parts of li.e world. To fail, or even lag, now, will be to dis? courage our boys who are offering their lives on the one hand, and en-! courage and strengthen the Germans! on the other hand. | Up to this gond hour we have not measured up, due to no lack of pa? triotism on the part of our people, <d" course, but whatever the cause may he Ihn people should wake up mid go at it with a determination to put the issue over the top at once. Tazewell will not be recreat or prove] truant in this crisis. Up to this good hour we have not measured up, due to no lack of pa? triotism on the part of our people, of course, but whatever the cause may be the people should wake up and go at it with a determination to' put the issue over the top at once.1 Tazewell will not be recreant, or prove truant in this crisis. j II?Y LIBERTY BONDS. I'll E WAR BROUGHT TO Oi l; H'iOlts. in the beginning of Hie war and up to recent date, we thought of it as being overseas, thousands of miles away. For this reason, perhaps, we had not realized that we were in tile war at all. Even when the boys marched away convictions were vague they were actually going to war. Now, in an unexpected way the war has been brought home to us in this dreadful epidemic, as deadly as Gei? lnau bullets. The dreadful pall of death has hung, dark and dreadful, over the homes of the United States for a mouth or more. The percen? tage of deaths in the army camps in the United Stales is greater, ac? cording to reliable authority, than is the percentage of deaths in battlu in General Pershing's army. While the rest of the world has been pi.ic? ed i:i the melting pot, it is not strange that the United Stales should bear her share of Borrow in order to win the share of glory that, shall follow. We accept the situation?we drink the cup placed to our lips, gladly, and suffer heroically in the grein struggle for world freedom and the reign of universal peace on earth. BUY LIBERTY BONDS. SOWED WHEAT FOR THEIR EN? EMIES. The French) armies have captured a largo territory in Northern France which the Germans had sown in wheat, expecting to send thousands of bushels across the Rhine. The. French harvesting battallions have already gathered a million and a half A SOLDIER'S POSTSCRIPT? "P. S.?Please id! mother Hint. I am reading a little every day from the Bible she cave me. It's a whole lot easier than 1 thought it'll he when I promised her I would. Somehow religion is a differ? ent soit of thing over here. Or, maybe, the difference is with me." THAT is how this war has gripped the hearts and souls of our boys in battle. This is more than a war for democracy. It is a war for righteousness?a war of right f$ against wrong, of good against bad. A war waged by an army of clean-hearted, thoughtful men. No wonder they are willing to sacrifice as they do? Buy your bonds the way they fight. Lend thoughtfully? Consult your conscience and buy to the point of actual sacrifice. Ath LIBERTY LOAN * U. S.

Would you call this "the irony of fate," or just a piece of "good luck." liUY LIBERTY BONDS. Many reputable people of this sec? tion believe that the influenza that is playing havoc in the army camps and among the civilian population of the United States was started in this country by the Germans, who sent the germs ashore from the subma? rines that operated oil' our Atlantic coast. Buy Liberty Bonds and as? sist in giving these murderers the worst licking any nation on earth has ever received. BUY LIBERTY BONDS. Speaking of Liberty Loan bonds, il has been a sort of mystery all the while why men should have to be urged and persuaded to buy them. There would, it seems, be a rush for them. It is one evidence of the pel vcrsity of human nature perhaps that men must he urged and begg? ed to accept free gifts for their own good and benefit. BUY LIBERTY BONDS.

O, House of Prayer, With wreck-strewed grounds, I'll help to heal Thy wicked wounds. Beyond the Seine, I hear the cry Of Prance in pain, I The shrieks from shell hole, trench I and wire, ; Men crazed by gas and liquid tire; Low groans beneath the surgeon's hand, Dumb agonies from No Man's Land.

SHIPYARDS MAKE RECORD. Great Tonnage Has Been Pul Out by Americans Within Past Year. American ship production again has broken all records. The output of Amercon .shipyards for the twelve month.- ending October 1 waj 70 per cent of the entire world's greatest annual pre-war output, according to figures given out in Washington. Compared with this it has been re? vealed that Germany and Austria lost :t'J per cent of their tonnage since America became a belligerent. Thru seizure the Teutonic Alliance lost: 3,700,000 deadweight tons. The greatest annual pre-war output of the world was in 1913 when approx? imately 4,750,000 deadweight tons of shipping were built. America's out? put in the last twelve months aggre? gated close to 2,000,000 deadweight tons. Although Germany has surrounded her merchant fleet with the utmost ? secrecy, compilations of nynilub'e facts dislose tho German and Aus? trian combined merchant tonnage to lie approximately 10,000,000. This hgurc, of course, includes all of their coastwise bottoms, many of which are too small for trans-atluntic trade, 'the net loss, through seizure, there? fore, is much more severe than the figures indicate. Since ruthless sub? marine warfare began, the total loss of ships flying the American flag to Ull 300,000 deadowight tons. This represents about A of 1 per cent of loss sustained by the central powers through seizure alone. No figures have leaked out of Ger? many os to her losses through sink-1 ings. Losses reported from time to' time, as allide or American naval men were able to gain contact with' German or Austriun vessels, would indicate that less than half of their former fleet remains. Officials here believe also that ships of the central powers may be of little value because of the lack of repairs. Shortage of steel und other materials used ia, shipbuilding must necessarily have forced the shipyards to discontinue the work on merchant ships which are bottled up, it is argued. In this connection, many officials sold, the German ships will have to be com pletely rebuilt before they can engage in ocean traffic after peace times. THE VANGUARD.
