"After Germany has won, the Unit?

For every loan to the Allies, for ev?

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

triotism on the part of our people,

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
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.
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
"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.

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.
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.

There comes a call,
From France to me,
1 hear the tender, mutlled BOUIld
Of children's voices underground,
Bereft of every childish thine;,
'flic rigth to love, to play, to sing,
Hear little ones,
I hear thy plea,

And play with thee.
From over there
I here the call
Of France in prayer;
Of women weeping for her mate,
Torn from her by the Huns of Hate;
Of homeless brides who, all alone,
Sit brooding by the piles of stone,
Heroic souls,
I come to share
Your bitter grief,
Your dumb despair.
From over so-.
There come sad Bounds
From France to me;
The mournful peal of broken bells,
Mot shattered by Satanic shells;
The war-sick wind that wails anil
Through battered walls of sacred
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
Dumb agonies from No Man's Land.
O, stricken land,
Where evils reign,
Thy call to me
Is not in v:\in.

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
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.

You used to see him swing gaily down the street, radiant with the vigor of his sturdy
young manhood. One day he came home in khaki; then his father told you, with min?
gled pride and foreboding, that he had "gone across" with his regiment.
Yesterday his name was on the casualty list?"slightly wounded"?and your face
grew grave as you thought of the sorrow and suspense of his father and mother.
Prom every city, street, every village, every community, the boy next door has gone
to war.
Think of these thousands of splendid young Americans, reared in comfort, peace and
security, now suddenly plunged into that-roaring inferno of battle, with the hardened
hordes of a desperately determined foe.
What Are You Doing To Help Them?
What are you doing to arm and protect theim. and bring them home in safety? Have
you bought Liberty Bonds? Have you bought all you possibly can?
Has it occurred to you that one more Bond, bought with a little additional olTort, may
save the life of the boy from next door?
