FRIDAY, NOVEMBER I. MM8.
A BOMB IN THE CAMP.
President Wilson's appeal to the
Democrats for their undivided sup?
port Avas "a bomb in Hie camp" of
Republicans and Democrats alike, in
this section. At First, it was fell that
a mistake had been made by the
President and naturally, for in this
section at least, there has been no
intimation or insinuation or hint of
politics in any of our war activities,
at any time since the war began, or
certainly not since the Democrats de?
cided not to oppose Mr. Slcmp's re?
election to Congress. Democrats ami
Republicans have worked in harmony
and effectively in this section, put?
ting aside all personal differences,
political, social and religious, bend?
ing all their energies?time, money
and brains, to tin- winning of the war,
and as said, -Mr. Wilson's "appeal"
for party support, came as an un?
pleasant surprise to many of the
people of this .section.
As to the wisdom of the Presi?
dent's course few of us are perhaps
sufficiently informed as to conditions
in Washington to justify an opin?
ion as against Mr. Wilson's course,
lie knows, as few men can know,
how matters stand anil have stood
during the past strenuous year ami
a half. He knows who has fought,
with him and against him?hindered
and helped in carrying a load, the
weight of which never rested upon
the shoulders of any other man, liv?
ing or dead, in all history, lie knows
as all of us ere beginning now to
see, what is the drift among certain
leading Republican politicians, who
are now, and have been for some?
time, obstructionists in Washington
and in other parts of the country.
Mr. Wilson's appeal for Democratic
support is based upon his positive
knowledge of opposing forces inside
and outside id' Congress, which op?
position he fears will frustrate plan
well laid for a successful closing ul
the great war. That the President
can carry to a more successful and
satisfactory termination his irreal
plans for the future peace of the
world with a harmonious party at bis
back, than with a party ever ready,
at every opportunity to oppose him,
goes without saying. And what more
natural than he should nsk and also
expect the support of his friends in
the impending crisis?
The next congress of the United
States will be confronted with graver
questions and problems than .have
yet confronted it by far, and, there
should be no obstructionists of either
party when ibis august body of men
of America meet next year.
WILSON AND ROOSEVELT.
Roosevelt is a man of w.u. lie be?
lieves in the gospel of tic- "Dig
Stick." Mr. Wilson is a man oi
Peace. He has been a peace man all
the time?tried to keep the peace
from the first, and only drew the
sword when there seemed no other
alternative. He saw finally that
the only way to insure peace was to
go to war, and our war is one, not of
conquest, but of peace. .Mr. Roose?
velt cannot understand. He is not
built that way. The new federation
of nations must not be, cannot be,
founded upon hale. No peace at?
tained through a spirit of hate, couhi
stand. Mr. Roosevelt is "a bully."
(He is proverbially fond of the use
of the word.) He believes in lighting
for its own sake. He is never hap?
pier than when in the ring. Like
JJon Quixote, he lights not infre?
quently wind mills and imaginary
foes, and like the celebrated Don,
makes an ass of himself and a laugh?
ing stock for the public. He has
great talents of a certain order, per?
verted and misguided. Mr. Wilson,
of whom he is insanely jealous, and
fit whom he has never had a word
of commendation, is a statesman?
u world-wide leader of a world?
wide peace, a conception far above
and incapable of being grasped by a
man whose sole weapon is the "Rig
Stick," or a pair of brass knacks.
Such characters have their place and
mission but certain it is, their place
and mission is not such an one as is
mow occupied by Woodrow Wilson?
a place which he seeks to occupy,
.which is only another striking prool
of the truth of an old adage which
speaks of certain characters who
"rush in" where certain other char?
acters "fear to trend."

Y Ii A US OF DISCRETION.
j When a man has reached the age
j of sixty years lie lias been a poor,
(dull student if he has not learned
I discretion. Most men learn it ear?
lier. Up about Oyster Ray lives a
, man who has passed the 60-year mile
post but has learned nothing along
this important line. Rather, as the
years have come and gone, and pil?
ed upon him honors, sorrows and
< responsibilities, which should have
' tempered the wildest and softened
the most obdurate, he has become
' more reckless and less temperate in
\ speech und feeling and inward ve
i num. The poison of the asp distills
; from his lips and the braying of an
1 ass proceeds still out of his mouth.
"The Etheopian cannot change his
skin nor the Leopard his spots/' says
the Good liook.
Sixty years is not the "age of dis?
cretion" up around Oyster Ray.
"POLITICS ADJOURNED."
When the President said that poli
I tics should be adjourned until after
the war, he had about concluded a
bitter contest for the passage of a
war measure in which several leading
Republicans and a prominent Demo
erat had opposed Iiis measure. Ev?
erybody except Ike Republican poli?
ticians referred to endorsed and ap?
proved the statement. Now, Mr.
Wilson says, virtually, the same
thing?adjourn the politicians. I low
is it possible to adjourn politics un?
less you adjourn the politicians? "No
ipolitics in the Congress and Senate
of the United States during the war,'
says Mr. Wilson. The only way on
earth lo "adjourn" politics "is to
'adjourn the politicians, and Mr. Wil?
son points the way.
1 As the New York Times says, "Un
I til partisan obstruction raised its
I head there was no visible occasion for
the President to appeal in his own
name to the people to elect a Con?
gress 1 * ' in sympathy with the at
titudc and action of the Administra?
tion." Thi' President was forced by
hostile leaders lo take the stops he
'.did.
WHAT ROOSEVELT SAID IN IK'Jtf.
(Rluclicld Telegraph.)
I Ai the conclusion of the Spanish
American war, 18118, Colonel Roose?
velt said: *
"Remember, that whether you will
it or not, your voles this year will
he viewed by the nations of Europe
from one standpoint only. They will
draw no tine distinction. A refusal
to sustain the President this year
will in theis eyes b rend as a re?
fusal to sustain our peace commis?
sion to secure the fruits of the war.
Such a refusal may not inconceivably
bring about a rupture of peace ne?
gotiations. It will give heart to our
defeated antagonist s..'
If this statement was true then
how much more so is it today, when
practically all the free peoples of
the earth are looking to the Presi?
dent as their spokesman?
HOW TO VOTE.
Voters are warned against depos
Ring their ballots next Tuesday with?
out marking off the name of Mr.
Dale. If you do not mark oil' the
name of Dale, the ballot will be de?
stroyed and will be thrown out.
These are the candidates:
For United States Senate:
THOMAS S. MARTIN.
For Congress, ilth Virginia District:
C. II. SLEMP.
j Scratch the last name?that's all.
THE GERMAN MAXIM.
I Thi' Germans have this maxim:
("Wherever Germany puts her foot is
Germun territory."
Harry Spratl, the lawyer, said
when he rend the above maxim, that
"the Germans had been covering a
lot of territory of late, but had not
held it long enough t'o entitle them
to a shadow of a title thereto."
PROPHECY.
i -
Maximillinn Harden, the only man
in Germany, who has had the privi?
lege <-f free speech since the war be?
gan, said in his newspaper a few
? days ago:
j "I have always had uneasy pre?
sentments concerning the ruler who
on his accession thirty years ago.
said: 'I will lead yau into glorious
1 days.' We know the glorious day.;
now. Wilhelm has changed into
; Filmhell,' and Germany into a poor
moving-picture theatre. Now we are
sitting on the ruins of the policies of
these last thirty years."
Ne>.l Tuesday is election day. Go
lo (lie polls and vote. Mr. Slemp has
..opposition in the person of one It. I).
Dale, or "somewhere in the Ninth j
District," and failure of the people
(o vole might jeopardize Slemp's
chances of election. Inasmuch as
the Democrats have no candidate for
Congress, yen should vote for Slemp
who has stood by tho Democratic ad?
ministration in helping to win the
war.
Senator Thomas S. Martin, Vir?
ginia's Senior Senator, is a candidate
for re-eleotion in next Tuesday's bal?
loting. Democrats and Republicans
alike will go to the polls Tuesday and
vote for him.

AN HEPOir. -SACRIFICE
A PROTEST.
Editor Clinch Valley News:
I sec in your issue of last week
ll letter from a former Virginian, now
suffering exile in the wilds of North?
ern Texas, in which he refers to the
minutes of the old Hurke's Calden
Hunting Club, that unrivaled aggre?
gation of good sportsmen, good fel?
lows and warm friends, and in which
lie actually offers to send you these
minutes for publication,
1 protest! In the name of all the
proprieties and for the sake of the
public peace, I protest, and again pro
test! Such an act would he a be?
trayal of that confidence which alone
made possible the "tall yarns" that
enlivened the circle around the camp
lire. Not only that, hut this olfcr to
publish these intimate records of by?
gone days is nothing hut a thinly
veiled attack on the character and
standing of men who have almost suc?
ceeded in "living down" the reputa?
tions they then established.
Think of some of the things it
would reveal! A trial, held in the deep
darkness of a black night on upper
Roaring Fork, presided over by the
present Nestor of the Tazewell' Bar,
with another distinguished attorney,
(now in the Happy Hunting Ground)
as prosecutor, the culprit, a well
known citizen of this county, charged
with the heinous offense of leaving a
hear stand in pursuit of the tantaliz?
ing gobbler, whereby the hear was
nhlc lo pass thru unscathed, while
the jury was "packed'' for certain
conviction. Even the terrible penal?
ty inflicted would be given.
Again, it might be revealed how
sceptical of human nature was a cer?
tain prominent farmer (now a staid
grand-father), when, while on his
first "deer stand," lie refused the
kindly advice of a well-meaning old
hunter in those woods who happen?
ed to pass by, that he was not at just
the right place, that the "stand" was
a little further on. The deer had
been "started," the pack was in full
cry, sweeping along the "trend of
Clinch," and the potential grand-fa
Ithcr, thinking the stranger was try?
ing to "fool him otr the stand," ratn
er curtly said: "If you think that is
the stand, you go to it." This the old
hunter did?and killed the deer.
Then it would "come out" that.
I there was once a conspiracy against
the "deer killer," the one man who
was always in the right place to gel.
a shot, whereby he was sent far down
Lite valley (for a Committee always
assigned the stands), far away from
any probable course of the expected
buck; and it would further appear
that the aforesaid "deer killer" got
sore, disgruntled anil rebellious, but
rode on to the appointed place, and,
breaking all precedents, went to hunt?
ing squircls, in which petty past
tune he was rudely interrupted by
the deer, which apparently followed
him up SO that it might fall before
the right man.
In those minutes is also recorded
the hunter's tragedy of that prince of
WOOdsnfcn and among men, now "rest?
ing under the shade of the trees,"
"over there," who, for years and
years helped cook venison, with?
out ever having had even a shot
at a deer, and then, when the biggest
buck of all did conic bis way, early
one frosty morning and long before
it was expected, he was building a
lire, and the buck escaped with only
a hastily inflicted wound.
The "bread riot," even, would be
disclosed, and the near tragedy of
that dark morning on Hunting Camp
would again "loom up" in all its orig?
inal colors.
It would be shown how one envious
Nimrod (a man who is a "mighty
hunter" every winter in a sunnier
clime than this), asserted that the
shortest legged man in the Club could
stiel; a gobbler's beard on bis chin
and scratch for chestnuts with the
dock without causing one "tuck" of
alarm.
Perhaps worst of all, the passing
of an old bachelor's (lie is still a bach?
elor) carefully guarded reputation for
truth and veracity is chronicled in
those minutes?how he rushed into
camp, wild-eyed and garrulous, just
at day-break one morning, and de?
clared that his party of coon hum
eis (nightly contributors to the lard
[er), had "treed" a coon about a mule
from camp, that they bed ".aid by it"
[all night, th:-.t it was "the biggest
I'un that ever wuz," and that if war. in
the very tip-top of a tree 100 fee

"A PRESBYTERIAN PEACE."
The following, which appeared as
an editorial in the State of Colum?
bia, S. C, makes pleasant reading for
Presbyterians:
"A Presbyterian Peace."
"Secretary Lansing delivered an
address at the celebration of the one
hundredth anniversary of the Auburn
(N. Y.) Presbyterian Theological Se?
minary the other day in which he
said that the peace with Germany
was'not lo he written in terms ef an?
ger or revenge but in a Christian
spirit. Upon this the World of New
York comments that "there may be
misguided Germans who will lind in
this utterance reasons lo hope that
the United States government, com?
mitted to spiritual no less than carnal
welfare, may be made the victim of
a peace romantic if not altogether
illusory." Then the World observes
sapiently, "If, so, lei all concerned
recognize the fact, that Secretary Lan?
sing was speaking as a Presbyterian.
In that communion there are some
disagreements as to matters of faith
necessary to salvation, but in the
main there is adherence to the stern
theology of Hie Westminister Con?
fession. The (i.xl of Secretary Lan?
sing is a God of mercy, but first of
all lie is a God of justice." Finally
the World says:
"There can be no question of Sec?
retary Lansing's remarks at Auburn
Were approved at the White House in
all respects as regards politics, di?
plomacy and religion, for Germans
as well as Americans should never
forget that President Wilson also is
a Presbyterian."
In this there is for all people and
especially for the Germans food for
thought. We are to have a Presby?
terian peace, in the World's opininion.
Hearing the casual remarks of Meth?
odist, uBptist, Episcopalian, Roman
Catholic and Lutheran brethren I,
the street, we are convinced that
those of them who are troubled with
misgivings at this time may find
consolation in the prospect to which
the World points.
Lawyers in the habit of defending
criminals are traditionally chary
about juries permeated with Calvan
ism."
If any further word is necessary it
is found in President Wilson's lasu
response to Germany's appeal for
peace.
MADE THE CHAIN COMPLETE.
Attorney General Gregory tells this
piquant story of a prominent finan?
cier and a well-known physician:
The money juggler called at the
office of his family physician one
morning and told him with much con?
cern that his only son was Buffering
from diphtheria. The doctor was so?
licitous but assured the financial- thas
with the care given in the hospital to
which the hoy bad been taken he
would pull through nicely. "Of
course, saiil the medico, "no one is
safe when that lei rible <lisease is
aroound."
"Hut," said the father, "the boy
confessed to me that he is sure he
caught the disease from the parlor
maid whom he bad kissed."
"Well, young people are certainly
very thoughtless," mused the doctor,
"I'm sorry to hear that your son ha.-:
been so indiscreet."
"Yes, of course, doctor," said the
financier, nervously, "but don't you
sec, to be frank with you?I have
kissed the girl. Do you think I, too,
will have the disease'.'"
"Why, yes," said the doctor. "You
are probably already infected. In
fact, that would be tho very next
thing to expect."
"Oh, that's awful," gasped the fi?
nancier, "and I kiss my own dear
wife every morning and evening, so
she, too?"
"Good henvens!" cried the phy?
sician, jumping up excitedly, "then I
too, will have it!"?Ex.

shipping space which can be set aside
for the transportation of these par?
cels will permit the sending of but
one parcel to each man.

Fach soldier overseas will be pro?
vided with one Christmas Parcel la?
bel. This label will be forwarded by
him to the person in the United
Stales from whom he wishes to re?

tody of the Red Cross until deliver?
ed to the postal authorities.
No Boxes Accepted Alter Nov. 20th.
No Christmas parcel will be ac?
cepted by the Red Cross for ship?

from abroad.
The following is an outline of the
procedure to be followed by persons
planning to send one of these parcels
abroad:
What to do when you receive label.
On receiving one of these Christ?
mas parcel labels, i; should be pre?
sented at the neare.it chapcr, branch
or auxiliary headquarters of (he Red
Cross, where t'.ie holder will receive
n carton. These labels, arc not ex?

ber of soldiers in service overseas
fron; that community.
These boxes may be filled with any
combination of articles except those
on the list barred by the Postal of
I Relais.
I Bear these Tacts in mind when pack?
ing your Christmas parcel.
Nothing should go in a Christmas
parcel that will not keep fresh from
the time of packing until Christmas.
Dried fruits and other food prod?
ucts should be packed in small tin
or wooden boxes, one-quarter to one
half pound size.
Hard candy, including chocolate,
would probably be safe in tin foil or
heiivy cardboard, but no soft choco?
lates nor anything that could possi?
bly be crushed should be used, as the
remaining contents of the package
might be spoiled thereby
Several dainties packed in oblong
tin boxes holding each a quarter of a
pound will provide a better variety
for a packet than a larger quantity
of a s.nglc confection.
No liquids nor articles packed in
glass should be placed in the pack?
age.
For wrapping the gifts use a kha
ki-colorcd handkerchief, twenty-sev?
en inches square.
When tide package has been pack?

HOW EASY TO WEITE A NOTE.
Editor News:
Heir Solf, who has aappeared at
least once before, has written a note
lo the President, which seems to baf
lle the wise-acres, but has failed of
its primary purpose?to slowup the
campaign and give the German ar?
mies time lo concentrate its whole
force as an exhibit to its credit at the
Conference. He speaks of a new gov
eminent which has not been promul- ,
gated, and mentions neither the Em?
peror under whom he serves, or any i
I of the central allies who are more or
less interested. He "thinks" that
in three months these troops can he
I removed on to German soil (with the
arms, equipment and supplies) aim
generally aims at a peace that will
leave the "Empire" in n fine condi?
tion lo recuperate.
Now, by Spring the United States
will have three million of men in BC
1 lion with twenty thousand batik
j planes and ships on all the high seas,
lit is only love for our armies that
urges peace in any heart and our
soldier hoys "demand" its continua?
tion to a finish. The longer the war
lasts the longer will last the peace
that is to follow. On to Berlin! The
offer has been made, however, and
the only advantage to be gained by
us if they accept is that the nation
will the sooner be aligned in the
great war of reconstruction which is
to follow.
This reaction will be tremendous?
the segregation of homogenious
people into States that will avenge
the cruelties of history and guaran
I tee the peace of the world. And yet
a fight to the finish might and would
make the new world map more just
j and more durable, and less likely to
be marred by the sinister force of
human ambition. On to Uerlin!
