The rolling up, on schedule time, of the enormous sum of more than six billion dollars, is the most won? derful achievement of any nr.tion in history. And this, too, during the prevalence and sweep of the most dreadful and demoralizing epidemic and scourge ever experienced in this country. On top of this, as an added hindrance, was the rumor and fat-j reaching talk of peace and the early ending of the war. Notwithstanding all this, the people rolled up the un? thinkable amount of more than six billion dollars?bow much over is not known at this writing. It was a won? derful achievement. The effect pro? duced abroad cannot hut he a blow to whatever of lingering hope tile tier-' mans may have entertained of win? ning the war and an encouragement and assurance unmistakable to our troops in France and others going daily, that the homcfolks are with them, heart, soul and resource.-, to the limit. "It was a wonderful victory." YOUR SEED CORN FOR 1919. Remember what a hard time was had last spring in getting seed corn.' At this stage of the game : elect seed corn when shucking is recommended a-, the only safe, plan. Select the best ears and keep them from freezing this winter, if possible. Freezing injures well dried corn hut little, hut when not well dried freezing will injure the germinating quality of the grains. Get the liest seed possible this fall for next spring planting. A MESSAGE TO TDK BOYS IN FRANCE. It must be very gratifying to the Tazewell boys in France to note that their home county has been weighed \in the balances and not found want? ing. The Fourth Liberty Loan cam? paign, which dosed Sntuvt'.ay night, wti oversubscribed more than a hun? dred thousand dollars and the cam? paign for the sale of War Stamps has resulted in the sale anil pledge- to buy of over half a million dollars. This makes nearly a million and a quarter dollars loaned the government by the people of Tazewell county within the past few weeks. Tazewell county is so thoroughly inoculated with the "Wlin-theWnr" idea that about all the Government need do now is to tell us the amount desired and it will be forthcoming. Tazewell County has made a won? derful record in the sale of War Stamps and pledges to buy. Director McAdama official figures show that Tazewell is the second county in the Ninth district, and in per capita pur? chases Outdistances all of the rich counties in the Eastern pal of the Slate. It is interesting (to us) to com? pare the per capita sales of Tazewell with some of the Eastern Virginia' counties, who have in years past re? gal,led the inhabitants of the South? west as a separate and distinct race' from their own. Hats olf to Tazewell County, and the entire Southwest, the home of the mountaineer and the clansman, ,and the pure-blood Anglo Saxon, un? hyphenated, courageous and patriot? ic to the last degree! The grippe epidemic which swept the county more than twenty years ago was just about the same, say the doctors, as this Spanish influen? za. Dr. Witten, of Graham, says the epidemic then was worse than this. The epidemic then was widespread, but our recollection is that it was not nearly so fatal. A great many old people died then, whereas, the large fatalities now are among the younger peojde. The fatalities in ar? my camps in this country are great? er than the fatalities, all told, in General Pershing's army in Prance, The cpdidemic of influenza is jusi getting a good start in Tazewell, and we may see and will see a spread of the disease unless rigid precautions arc taken. Remember, the germ? are spread by coughing, sneezing and spitting. Avoid crowds and particu? larly badly ventilated rooms. Wo3t Virginia's quota of the 4th Liberty Loan was "over the top" to the amount of $5,572,850, according to the B'.uefield Telegraph. The quo ,ta for the State was $33,880,000. Good for the little Mountain Stato. "Many people wonder what is the inyotci inns power continually pulling back the Uermun armies Ihn they meant to go forward.'?licrlin Tage blat. Well, ain't they going "for? ward" now? Some folks are mighty hard to please. AMERICA'S ANSWER. Just what reply President Wilson will make to this last camouflage, so (ailed "peace note" of the Germans, wo know not. If lie replies the reply will be all right. The people 01 America have replied in unmistaka? ble language. Within three weeks time more than six billion dollars have been gladly and willingly pro? vided for the victory campaign. This is the peoples' eloquent, suggestive reply, and we've got more left if wanted. "We have just begun to tight." "Shipyard Athletics Abandoned."? Headline. A wise move. Some of us at home have never been quite able to understand why men working In shipyards should be encouraged in u great waste of time playing football and baseball. As a diversion, when opportunity is afforded, a little play is all right, but to take valuable time from ship-building to play baseball :>s a means of exercise, has always had the appearance of a foolish waste of time and energy. If the young men in the shipyards have surplus energy to spare, spend it in the trenches in France. 15-YEAR OLDS TO RR CALLED IIY MARCH I. Washington, October Hi.?The g0V-| eminent army draft program contem? plates reaching into the group of reg- I istiants between thirty-seven and for? ty-live years and under nintocn years by the beginning of March. This wn? the testimony of Provost Marshal Gen. Crowder in explaining the pn gramme to the House Appropriations I Committee as shown in hearings held | here. Prom those registered on Sept. 12 the Government expects to draw l, 8-10,000 actual lighting men by the | end of next. June. This does not in? clude special and limited service men I numbering 550,000. Acording to Ceil. | Crowder, a little more than 50 per cent of the lighting men will come from the ninctce-twenty group nnd| the thirty-tow-thirty-six group. Hi said the eighteen year old class is to| he called lo a limited extent for c leginte and military training but that| the number so called is almost negli? gible. KO Divisions by June .'111. In the same connection Gen March| Chief of Stall', outlined more in detail | than heretofore bis programme for putting a force of men in France that will "walk through" (he German line anywhere they please. A scheme has been worked out so that by June 30, 1010, a total of eighty divisions will be ah: oad and eighteen at home. "Our estimate of eighty divisions,"| said Cen. March, "provides for live divisions in Octolrer, four in Novem? ber, l our in December, four in JniiU-1 ary, four in February and then, dur? ing the months between that anil June 30, there is to be an average of four divisions a month. We will or. IganhtC so as to arrive at that point with ninety-eight divisions by June ,'iu. 1010." The program looks forward to keep? ing at home for every emergency a I reservoirs of approximately 1,500,0001 men, Cen. March continued. 1,708,437 Have Sailed.

GERMANY'S ANSWER. (Roanoke Times.) ' Is Germany sincere? That is '.ho question uppermost in the mind of the country today. The German chancel? lor's reply to the President's inter? rogations is fair enough o-i its face - hut can the governments that uro lighting Germany afford to take the word of a German Chancellor? One of two things is evident: Cither n 'tremendous change has been effected in the German government, a change which has resulted in making the Kaiser little more than a figurehead, oi the Chancellor's plausibly worded reply is B trap into which i1 is hoped to ensnare the allies. I; is for Wood row Wilson to decide which, of I best two theories is the right one. TUESDAY I' WHEATLESS MEATLESS OME nuL D. 8. Food Admlnlitratton. Arc you shocked to see the lady drinking ships?

Pccry's letter, publish? ed in this issue, reminds us?just 2-1 years ago, to he exact, on the 17th day of October, IKiM, a party of us callimr ourselves by the euphonious and high-sounding name, The Pur and Feather Club, left Tazewell for a ten day hunt and outing in Hear Town and other deep and (lark woods in the upper end of Poor Valley. The mem? bers of that club, participating in tins ncver-to-uc-forgoltcn hunt, were E. V. and .1. W. Spotts, Lewis and John Briltuiu Charles i". (Hayseed) Peery, Frank W.U. a, J. A. Leslie, Ceo. W. (Jordon) Yost, T. B. Warren, the bar? ber, Charles Dempscy and Charles Puxton, cooks, and Bill Moore, Com? mander of the "transportation" de? partment, consisting of n one-horse wagon, containing tent, stove, dishes, and supplies and no small quantity of "artillery." All the members of this club are alive except the lamented .lohn and Lewis Brittain, two as tine boys and genial companions as ever lived. The club was gotten together by Ed. Spotts and .lohn Brittain, who purchased the camp outfit and made all arrangements. At the close of the outing, about ten days, the expenses >f the trip were footed up and divided prn-ratn among us. We left Tazewell on the morning of October 17th in groups of two or three headed for Poor Valley each group choosing its own course across the mountains. The wagon in charge of "Bill" Moore went around the road of course. The writer of these lines ?hall never forget the trip across. The day developed summer heat. The big pasture field leading up to the moun? tain seemed interminable. There was no water and we had nothing to cat, except chestnuts. There was no game. We lost our way and to make a long story slant, about sunset my contin? gent straggled into camp at the foot of lb" mountain in Poor Valley, Lu? ther Peery, his brother, H. E., .lohn Grccver and others whoso names 1 do not recall, bad been out .sometime, and had just finished supper. On u big log lire the big put still contain? ed what was left of a fat coon, caught the night before. There was also coffee, corn bread and sorghum mo? lasses We were invited to "fall to," ai.d we did. If the campers had re? fused to feed us, there would have been war right there. We were ready to sacrifice life for food. Prom that day to this never has a men! tasted quite so good, or reached the spot quite so effectively, as did that meal of hot coon, black coffee and corn bread. We went into camp about a mile further down the valley, in a vacanl acre where once a bouse had stood, the remaining logs of which furnish? ed our tabb;. There, in the deep woods, we spent two weeks?hunting during the day. telling stories and singing songs around a roaring fire al night. No attempt will be made here to describe this, to us, memora? ble, never-lo-be-duplicaled vacation, i: the deep, silent, woods of Poor Valley, nearly a quarter century :.go. The boys are scattered now, but it is a safe guess that not one of them living has forgotten or will for? get, October. 1804. AMARILLO OVER TUP. TOP. Amarillo, Texas, Oct. 23. Fditor the News: Your letter received, also the News for which I am very thankful and I take pleasure in enclosing check for $1.60 to pay subscription for one year. I will suggest that you change the street address on the paper to 1504 Harrison street, this city. The paper will then be delivered at my residence which I think is better than sending it to my P. O.

I enjoyed your paper very much, as I could read about the doings of friends and acquaintances of years past, also see how you good people were getting along with bond issue.; etc. Little old Amarillo, Tex., has pul on" over you on the last Liberty Bond Issue. Our quota was $750,000 and we raised it in one day and bad sev? eral thousand to spare; on the third loan we went over our quota consid? erably more than a quarter ef a mil? lion. We never have failed tj go over the top on anything relative to the war and the needs of the U. S.

Steclsburg, Va., Oct. 21.?Mrs. Jane Griflltts, wife of Albei t Griflitts, died bete last Thursday, tbe J7tb.

She was laid to rest by the side of her little daughter, who preceded several years ago. The sympnth yof the community is extended to the husband and children. THE ANSWER. (New York Sun.) Perhaps no document proceeding from the president's capable intel? lectuals has ever gone so swiftly to the heart of the question Ol disposed with such candid und yet subtle dia lestic skill of a dangerously plan-ible .trick of the enemy's diplomacy as his 'reply yesterday, through Mr. Lan? sing, to Prince Muximillian's peace j proposals. Ten thousands words of amplifica? tion could add naught to this Incom Iparably effective repsonse. It argues 'nothing, it promises nothing, but se Ircnely and without the least bluster I of rhetorical phrase it hamstrings I the Kaiser's stalking horse, i "We are ready to accept your well known terms of peace as the basis of negotiations," said Prince Maximil? ian. "Do you mean that you accept those well known terms?" replies the j president. I "We propose an armistice while the negotiations are going on," said the Prince. "There can be no armistice," replies the president, 'while your troops are in the territory you have invaded." "We arc ready for parley with a view to peace," said Prince Maximil? ian. "Of whom are you B-eakin?*T" replies the president. "It is vital that we .should know whether we are parleying with the German people or with the criminals who involved the civilized world in this awful war. i With them, devoid of honor, as I have remarked before, we have no I common language and can have no thought in common." i That is all, but it is enough; and it is as incontrovertible in its ma? jestic simplicity as the law govern inc the movements of the heavenly bodies, ami as beautiful as the Amer? ican flag. .GERMANS NOTHING SHORT OF I BRUTES, SAYS BALFOUR. London?A. J. Ralfour, the British ' Foreign Secretary, speaking at a 'luncheon given to a party of Ameri? can editors said: "We have to make a right peace ami I do not think a light pence is a very easy thing to make. Our ene? mies are attempting to change their constitution, hut appear to have no notion that what we call a change is not so much a change in the formal j purpose of the Government as a change of hearts whereby that Gov? ernment is to be directed and animat 1 cd." I Mr. Balfour said that the Ger \ mans had shown no material im? provement in their disposition durin<* I the four years of the war. 1 "Unites they were when they be? gan the war," he exclaimed. "As fas as I can judge, brutes they re main at the present moment. The foreign secjetary said that perhaps he spoke with a warmth and indignation unbefitting bis position, but with the news of the Leinster outrage he found it difficult to meas ! uro his epithet I "One would have thought," contin? ued Mr. Halfour, "that those who brought in America to their own un? doing by crimes of this sort would have shrunk a little from repeating them at the moment when their fate is to be decided by America, perhaps even more than by any other of the co-belligerents." Mr. Balfour said lie wished he could think that crimes of this kind ware those of a small dominant mil? itary caste, but it war- incredible that they could be repeated through four : year., of embittered warfare if they 'did ic-t commend themselves to the i population which committed them. JlS IT POSSIBLE TO BELIVE IT? I There me 1,890,000 people, of nil I ages, in Virginia, who did not buy I a bond of the Second, c- Third L.b ertv Loan. j There are 2,202,000 in North Caro? lina. There are 1,369,000 in South Cnro I Una. j There are 1,065,000 in West Vir jginia (in the 5th dictrict.) j There are 1,050,000 in Maryland. This, too, is upon the ::S3umptioni on the side of liberality, that none i of the people who subscribed to the I Second Loan subscribed to the Third. ;This we know, of course, is not the case. What can these people who are able to buy say in extenuation? How can they ever look a returned soldier boy in the eye? What will their relation to those who have dono their part when we show an honor roll of deeds done after the War? Redeem your W. S. S. Pledge. U. S. GETS READY TO BOMB GERMAN CITIES. Washington, October 12.?Bombs, air bombs, of high explosives from liftv to live hundred pounds, penetrat? ing bombs, incendiary bombs, shrap? nel bombs, incendiary bombs that will pierce as well as scatter continuing, ilame at surface, contact?America i has them, in thosaunds, in such num-l hers that there arc not airplanes sufll-1 dent to drop them as rapidly as they | an- produced and the ordnance de? partment is waiting on the airplane program now to begin the hail of explosives over Germany for the final pyrotechnics of the war. The manufacturers who make these bombs, at least seventy-five per cent of them, from the bomb manufac? turers association, in company with ordnance and aviation officers of the United States and Great Britain, saw just how their message to the kaiser were proof read today at the great proving grounds of the ordancc de? partment at Aberdeen, Md., near llarve de Grace. Here, with .'1,1)00 acres of old farm laud to shoot around in some ten thousand men to shift the scenes the air full of planes to drop the bombs and watch the projectiles flight from cannon, howitzers and trench mor? tars, all decked in camouflage, the day was one long assortment of vieing noises, from the swish of the flying pig out of the Stokes-Newton mor tars to the growling of the large shrapnel shells through the outraged air to the point of the burst. Most of it was technical, to show to the manufacturers how defects were dscovercd by the tests, just what the tests were and why, when an occasional failure occurred, the pro? jectile or bomb was defective. There was no dramatization of the demon? stration?it was just a routine day in this vast camp whose day-to-day is pust one round after another of shot and shell. i But almost everything on the west front was there, just about as it is on the battle line, for the conditions of test are battle conditions and worse. There are more than twenty types of heavy ordnance there, in addition to the drop bombs and artillery is tested as well as explosives and pro? jectiles. Observation of the high explosive shells ami the aerial bombing with various types of bombs, were made from a tower about sixty feet high and the one big thrill of ibe day came when, after almost getting used to seeing the huge black misles come wobbling down from a point appar? ently over the top itself, one started directly overhead and burst with high explosive within a hundred and fifty yards. The tower shuddered. So did the hundred or so persons on it. Even at that distance and at that height, caps were lifted by the concussion and one staggered against it. Such tremendous force had shattered the earth in a deep, wide crater that finely pulver? ized dirt sifted down two minutes or more afterward. This was the high explosive, bui only a little one of fifty pounds of T N T, not to be compared with the five hundred pounds aerial bombs, whose charge is half the weight. Ami there others, shrapnel and the spec? tacular incendiary bombs of ther? mite, whose heat is such that a table spoonful of it eats a hole in the armor plate as an ember would eat through butter. This is the kind that is used for buildings. The demonstration had all the in? terest and confusion of a three ring circus. Everything was going at once. There was the bare of the incendiary bombs, still burning from their deep holes, the brown upheavals from the banging six-inch mortar battery high explosives, the graceful pahn trco of whirling gases, formed in the vor? tices from the penetrating TNT aer? ial bomb, the wallowing flying pigs in comparatively lazy arcs and, al? ways overhead, far out of shell range, the glinting planes soaring with new missies. DEATHS IN DICKENSON COUN? TY. !?'reeling",' Oct. Hi.?Grover Cleve? land MulTins, a merchant and post? master at Baden, died on Tuesday 01 Spanish influenza. He leaves a fami? ly of a wife and several children. Mrs. Cora Dotson, nee Trivett, for? merly of this place, but late of Jenk? ins, Ky., is dead of the influenza. The remains will be brought to the Trivett cemetery near here for burial. She leaves a husband and one child. . Harrison Dutton, of Blowingbrook, while working in a mine at Hellicr, Ky., according to reports received fro mthcre. He leaves a family. The body was brought back to his home for burial. Nelson Mullins, of Ramsey, died a day or two since of pneumonia. He had been at Camp Lee training, and was home on furlough. WHAT IT TAKES. ft must finally dawn on the kaiser that it is not Essen and the Krupp workmen, it is not guns alone, that makes a war and win it. It is the spirit of the people, of the men be? hind the guns, that is most, impor? tant. Our people arc inspired by an unselfish puprposc to rescue civiliza? tion. Under chivalrous command, our men are fighting in the spirit of true crusaders. They are not out for ma tcrial gain. No, they left their home shores and all that is dear to them to fight for righteousness, for the free? dom of men, for democracy. It was a long way to Metz, but our guns are bombarding its forts and its peo? ple are fleeing for safety, while Hin denburg rages as he conducts "trium? phantly his pre-arranged retreat."! Why doesn't the K:\iser leave all, thing-i of war to Hindehburg, the man! he has no love for? Because he! knows that Hindonburg cannot be. surpassed by anyone in Hun cpuali ties. There is not a trace of the "milk t f human kindness" in his soulless composition. To him, literally, all th'nga are fair in war, however re voting or inhuman. But the day of. reckoning is near. Our long-range, guns are just as powerful and effec-j t've as the German guns that kept' Paris- shuddering. But we may be sure they will not be aimed at Red Cross hospitals?a favorite target of Hindenburg's gunners.?N. Y. Times.
