Indications early in the week art: that the .Salvation Army Home Ser? vice Fund Campaign in Tazewell has been subscribed. The amount asked was only $2,000. A number or the towns of the county oversubscribed the amount, allolcd. The ladies in the county played an important part in the collection of the fund. The ladies of the Town of Tazewell collected about half of the town's quota, and tin' ladies of the 9ther parts of the county were en? thusiastic in the work. A majority of the people of the county are fa? miliar with (he good works of (he Salvation Army, and it was not n, cessary to beg them to contribute.

F. Newspaper, the following good ad? vice is given tin- returning soldier.-: "We want lo say just a few word.-, to your soldiers who will soon go home and be soldiers no more, at least not soliders of war but soldiers of industry. "There is a certain amount of un? rest at home in the States and varlou? organizations here and there are be? ginning to strike. Under the cover of these strikes the Bolsheviks and I. W. W.'s are coming forth from their holes where they have originally skulked during the war, and in the name uf labor are committing ex? cesses. "Certain sections of labor are rank? ing demands ami rejecting the Gov? ernment's mediation. Certain sections of capital are sitting pat and when the moment presents itself lowering wages. This union is demanding and conferring. That union is conferring anil threatening. They filially threat? en drastic action and strike. "Therefore a committee from Con? gress?a committee from the Cham? ber of commerce?in fact, commit? tees Until you can't rest appeal lo all labor and capital for 'order' and for 'calm.' tine wants a four-hour day and triple pay, the other sixteen hour day and cut wages. 1 let ween the two what are we --you-?to do? "This! When you get home line up with the law and order crowd. Remember that you have served your counttry as a soldier and preserved it from harm. Then get busy and pre? serve it again. Frown on the labor which asks too much?do not listen to capital who would lake too much. And the ntake the Bolshevik and kick him into an oblivion from which he cannot rise. After you have put yourself in the position stall to thinking out a safe and sane policy by which all these disc-orders may? be restrained and of a Supreme ('our; ?of Mediation as well as a Supreme Court of Justice before which both unreasonable capital and recalcitrant labor must bow the knee and receive their fair yerdict. "But in the meantime, while you are striving for these ends, men of the A. E. F., constitute yourselves the guardians of your Nation's in? ternal peace as faithfully as you have constituted yourselves her guar? dians abroad. Do these things and you have indeed served your country." PUTTING ON THE ECONOMIC SCREWS (Richmond Evening Journal.) How to put into effect the pro? posed economic blockade of Germany, in case the Ebcrt government re? fuses to sign the peace treaty, 13 rapidly taking form. It is proposed that all contiguous neutrals shall bind themselves not to trade with Germany either by re-exporting im? portations from tin- allied countries or by importing anything from Ger? many. It will he recalled that under the old guarantees by the neutrals re-export was forbidden, but the latt? er were allowed to import from Ger? many coal and other necesities, which the allies, because of the short? age of s'lipp'-ig, were unable to furnish to these countries. As a re? sult, Scandivania, Holend and Swit? zerland did a thriving business with Germany, particularly in coal. Since the armistice, this trade has been greatly augmented. If the neutrals .consent to seal their herders to the Germans, the allies argrec to supply the coal mil all other commodities they now get from Germany. Hol? land, probably, will "buck" on the proposed arrangement, owing to the strong pro-German sentiment in the government, but it will avail little, since the allies are well able to main? tain a strong enough patrol of the borders of Germany to effect a vigo? rous blockade. Of course, that would mean occupation of Germany, n course so depressing to the country that to avoid it, the treaty will, without doubt, receive the official sig 1 nature. If not in Paris, then at Ber? lin. H begins to look as if the allies will be forced to march Merlinward, at least, before the Kbert ministry will yield "under pressure" ami so "save its face." .Meanwhile, the effort ! to gain an amelioration of the terms proceeds. Hut the bluff put up by i the Germans is deceiving nobody and i the allies will yield nothing. Possibly, I it is too severe, in spots, but whose I the fault'.' It is fairly certain that ? if the treaty framers had been of tin- Potsdam brand, France, Italy Great Britain and America would I have felt the screws turn until the |natioiis writhed in agony. By com? parison, we dare say, the Versailles j affair is a mild document. SELECTED POEMS. CH IHREN OF BREAM.

You're kinder out of luck, follow? I'll say you are. When you hit the bay at midnight, as tired as you can ho, Just to rise again at daybreak af the solid of reveille, When you drill from early morning till the sun is going down. Then got assigned to K. P. whan you crave a pass lo town, And you spend your leisure moments scrubbing kettles, pans and pots. It's not the kind cf life you hoped for ? I'll says it's not. But you are ploying a position in l he world's great game of ball, And you wouldn't miss the chance to sei' the biggest game of all; So when they call strikes on you, grit your teeth and show your steam, And remember that, you've signed up with the pennant winning loam; And all tie knocks you're getting? nrmy show, fatigue and drill, Will make a man of you old fellow.

"Soldiers who fought against Spain in 1H!>8 lost in weight on an average of 22 pounds each; the average sol? dier of America at the end of the fighting in 1018 weighed 12 poundl more than he did when the selective service act or his own volition brought him into the army." Thus the success won by the army'.' subsistence branch in the great wai is epitomized in chapters of official war "material" history made public by* the War Department. The food problem of an army of 3,700,000 Americans is visualized in the history by considering the force as a single man and the entire waj period as one dinner hour. Articles comprised in the army ration assumed these tremendous totals: Roast beef, 800,000,000 pounds; ba con, lf>(),000,000 pounds; flour (bread) 1,000,000,000 pounds; butter, 17,f>000 000; oleomargarine, 11,000,000; bak ed beans, 150,000,000 pounds; pota toees, 487,000,000 pounds; onions, 40 .100,000 pounds; corn, beans and 150 O'JO.OOO cans; tomatoes, 100,000 000 cans; prunes and peaches ipples for dessert, 107,000,000 cans Uigar, 350,000,000 pounds; coffee, 7f 000,000 pounds; evaporated 200,000,000 cans. The bill for this meal amounted $727,000,000 to December l, 1018, the per capita cost having rhu n from 1 cents in 1897 to 43 cents in 1U18. At the time of til armistice, Amer? ican soldiers in France were consum? ing 9,000,000 pounds <>f food duiiy. Moving this stupendous quantity ov? er the fl.ooo mile line of communica? tion was the principle obstcaie to be overcome. This anil tin- necessity for conserving cargo -pace led directly in the later months to the shipment of dehyrdnted vegetables to the American Expeditionary force. "The problems were solved only by the assistance of the American food industry," the report says, and while instances were found of food speci? fications being violated, these are de? clared to have been very few and in most instances not intentional. The emergency ration of the Amer? ican soldier, designed to be used on? ly in cases of extremity, was perfect? ed during the war to consist of three cakes of beef, prepared with a bread compound of ground cooked wheat, each cake weighting three ounces; three one-ounce cakes of chocolate, three-fourth ounces line salt, and one dram black pepper. A special ration was designed for the use of invalid soldiers, including potted chicken, dired gges, puddings, etc. Importance attached to the supply of fresh coffee for the men is evi? denced by the decision to ship the bean in the green form and have it roasted near the front. This led to the invention of portable roasters, capable of handling several tons a day. "Noting that tobacco has establish? ed its claim to a recognised place in the soldier's life," the report says probably 95 per cent of the American Expeditionary Force used the weed in one form of another. Monthly ship? ments averaged 20,000,(1(111 cigars, ?120,000,000 cigarettes. The soldier's sweet tooth was satis? fied by a monthly shipment of 300,000 pounds of candy during the early part of the war, but this was increas? ed in November, 1918. lo 1,373,000 pounds, anil in the following month the War Department made candy a part of the regulation issue to each man every month. A close compan? ion in popularity was chewing gum, more than 3,000,000 packages a month being consumed. More than half of the Fifth Lib? erty Loan would be required to pay for the clothing and uniform equipage of the American Army. One chapter of the report gives a shcrl hi.i. iry of the events which led the Government finally to take over the domestic wool clip and to commandeer the ouptu practically of every factory. Interesting statistics are given of economies effected by changes in de? sign. For instance, elimination of lacings and eyelets in trousers saved * 17,0(111.(100 and the redesigning of the coat cut the rots of this garment $5,000,000. Expert cutting reduced the consumption of cloth 23-100 of a yard, and saved 2,300,000 yards on the total order. Cotton lextiles pro? duced for the army would furnish a strip 3 feet wide and of sufficient length to wrap eighteen layers around the equator. Innovations resulting from the shortages in material included the substitution of American dyes for the German product and the use of vegetable "ivory" in button making. The activities of the Quartermaster Corps (afterwards taken over large? ly by the bureau of Purchase, Stor? age ami Supply), included also the furnishing of hats, shoes, boots, fuel, oil, paints, tools, harness, and har? ness equipment and even music. The prominent composers volunteered for I he work of selecting a ''balanced ra? tion" of jazz and more restrained orchestrations for the army bands. To give the American aviator the surest fuel possible, the department tooK every drop of "25.7 degree fight? ing unptha" and confined its use to the service planes actually on the front. Conservation of shipping space re? sulted in the revolutionizing of the packing methods. Clothink was com? pressed into bales, shoes shipped in bags, and trucks were dissasembied and crated. The New York Haling Plant, according to the report, saved the Government ?56,000,000 jn ton? nage expenditures. SOMETIMES. Somet'ines when g.iing a weary mile We wonder, if we should rest awhile And seek o.d friends whom we used to know Away back liiere in the long ago. And seek a stream where wo used to wade, And ri It awhile in the grateful shade And hark a while to a wiidbird's BOIIg? Would all of the world we're in go wrong? If we should slop for a chat and a smile, With friends who once made the world worth while, If we should go for a day out far Where htc meadows bloom ami the children are, Where trees are tall and the skies arc fair, And drop all worry and drop all care, Would all we're working to win and do, Go whirling wrong and he ::11 askew?
