Appeal For a Memorial To
Almost n year 1ms passed since the
light faded in Wiley Meal's eyes in
that smoked-veiled, thunder-rocked
field, near Sedan; since a Hun toi
pedo sent the Mt. Vernon, with Paul
Crockett on board, to the bottom of
the Atlantic; since David Harris,
smiling and debonair, found glory
waiting in the Argonne Korest; since
Harntan Harris, the brave colored
lad, fell face to the foe; and since

We sent them away with a fine
show of sentimental enthusiasm. We
cheered, waved flags and sang "Keep
the Home K'res Burning" nnd "The
Star Spangled Banner." We made
speeches, promising loyalty and
eternal remembrance. They went
away cheerfully and bravely. They
fought and died heroically, believing
we meant what we said. Did we?
It would seem that we did not?
that on the contrary we were selfish?
ly Indulging in a cheap and sobby
sentimentalism. For the question of
building a memorial of some kind
commensurate with the sacrifice made
by our boys has been brought to the
attention of the public in the columns
of this paper more than once and
there has been no response no show of
interest. As if there had been no war
and no sundering deaths as if the
boys were all back in their accus?
tomed places, we are ging our sev?
eral ways, each of us "chasing his
favorite phantom,, as before, with no
outward sign of appreciation anil
gratitude. We are disgraced as a
people, and we should be damned,
if we let this matter rest here.
It is an appalling thought that we
have coal and land magnates here
in Tazewell, whose coffers have been
filled to over flowing by the acci?
dent of war, who are literally sifting
the ashes of our dead for gold, ami
who apparently are as obliviou? to
the high call of building a memorial
to our boys as a Sandy hog with his
grubbing snout buried in a bed of
But the sacrifice made by the
Tazewell boys who lost their lives in
the 'war imposes an obligation thai,
cannot be escaped by any one. The
building of a great Memorial Monu?
ment of some kind is a holy and im?
perative duty, binding all the people
of this county, rich and poor, white
and black, aristocat and "just folks,''
in the sanctity of a mutual obliga?
tion. It is a cause to which evcrj
man, woman and child should con?
tribute to the limit of ability, with?
out solicitation. We should, we can,
we must honor in some mngnifieent
way the boys who gave "the last
full measure of devotion" in camp,
on the ocean and in France.
And it should he done now. An or?
ganization of influential men and
women should be effected at once
and this noble task finished before
another year has passed that our
lieroes may not only live in hearts
they left behind but that out of their
sacrifice shall have grown good mul?
tiplying itself from day to day and
thus forming in grateful hearts
through 'generation after generation
a living and enduring monument.

The Flying Squadron at Glenwood.
All Day Picnic.
A detachment of the Flying Squad?
ron invaded lower Thompson Valley
last Sunday, and bad a great time.
The occasion was the meeting of
the District Convention of the Coun?
ty S. S. Association. These meetings
are held at intervals during the year
in each district of the county, at
some church contiguous to the lar?
gest number of schools.
Glenwood, in lower Thompson Val?
ley, is a Methodist church, beauti?
fully located in a grove of ancestral
oaks?the "church in the wildwood."
There was a large crowd on this,
one of the most beautiful and pleas?
ant Sabalh days that ever dawned
on this old earth.
The "detachment" on this occasion,
consisted of F. 11. Forbes, County sec
rotary, Mrs. W. G. O'Brien, County
Superintendent of primary work, and
this scribe. Mr. J. N. Rhudy is super?
intendent of the district. We reached
the scene of action about 11::'.'), new

The Editor opened with "a few '
feeble remarks" on some of the dan- j
gers, discouragements, rcspons-hili ? j
ties and encouragements confronting;
the schools and churches at this j
time. Mrs. O'Brien made a fine ad-|
dress on the primary work of the!
In my remarks I said something
about the enforcement of the prohi?
bition laws of the State, etc. This
gave Mrs. O'Brien an opening, and
she turned lose, und what she (lid to
bootleggers and moon.sh'ners general?
ly was a caution. The speech was one
of her best, both on the primary.
work and prohibition.
In the afternoon, the secretary
made a good talk on organization,
and Mrs. O'Brien spoke for a short
time on Sunday School supplies. |
The Dinner And The Folks.
_ To say that the dinner served was
fine is unnecessary: It was charac?
teristic of the whole-souled, hospit?
able people of that community.
i had my lunch with several par?
ties. I began with .lohn Higginbot
ham. He bad a two-bushel basket
sitting in the church, in the amen
corner when I got in church. When
I saw it I said "Amen," and kept my
eye on that basket It took two men
almost to carry it, but not so many;
to tote going home. John and one]
of his sisters?I don't know which
one, it was one thats not yet marri?
ed?passed around the contents of
that 2-bushel basket to hungry peo?
ple that knew they were welcome. I
There were other fine lunches spread
besides Johns, Sam Puckett, J. S.
Puckett, J. S. Buchanan, Lindsey
Stephenson, John Herald, R. R. Hep
install, Mrs. Moses Humphrey, ami
perhaps others, had tables or spreads,
on the grass, and everybody had a
fine time. \
The foundation stones of the pic?
nic structure were well and broadly
and deply inbeded, viz, ham, beet
pickles and apple pies, around and
on these as a beginninfi a splendid
structure can be erected. There was
