From the way some well meaning'
people speak of the soldier boys they
appear to regard them as a lot of
mollycoddles who need the nipptb
and the milk bottle wherever they go.

Notwithstanding the fact thatj^
there are more cattle in the country
than ever before, yet meat is higher.
.^hoes are higher in spite of the quan-j
tity of hides. Hides are cheap now -
as compared to a year or more ago,
yet shoes are out of sight. But pos
ribly some of the cattle are hideless.
The speech of Senator John Sharp
. Williams made in the United States
Senate October 14, was thc deliver
- ance of a man who has a vision. We
especially commend the speeech to
. those, who now that the war has been
brought to a successful issue and who
have not even smelled the smoke of
powder, would eat up the Germans—
all of them—blood and bones.
FOR HEAVEN'S SAKE DON'T.
We note from the daily press that
the state board of health is endeavor-'
ing to get a puiic health day program
arranged for the schools of the state. :
For Heaven's sake and for the sake
of the children, we say don't. There
are alrady two many "days." Again
during the past two years our schools
have been almost in a constant state
anticipation about first one spectac
ular thing and then another, and it is
time now that they were being allow
ed to devote themselves to real study

THE DEATH OF GORDON
The supreme sacrifice made by
Gordon Gillespie in France on Oct
. t<Aer 18, while leading his company
in.a charge against the Huns, was
keenly felt by the newspaper frater
nity of Mississippi. He was a son of
the J. L. Gillespie, owner and editor
of the Greenwood Daily Common
■wealth, who is one of the best known.

associated with our Government in
the pro.sec.ution of the war could be
relied on to meet out the proper pun
ishment to Germany. The terms of
th armistice show that every necessa

document to penalize the Hun.
right thinking citizens of the United
States know that the German people
did some things in this war that dis
qualify them for hell because it is too
good for them. But now that we have
whipped Germany, and we are pro
ceeding to tie that nation hand and
foot, we should not forget the prin

the doctrine of hate belongs to Ger-,
many and not to the United States.

per, and one of the best in the whole
country, only a few "days ago paid
President Wilson a great tribute.
The editorial is too long for us to
reproduce, but it is refreshing, after
the political strimagc of November
and the unwarranted attacks of such
Republicans as omsiverous Teddy,
.spineless Taft and force-bill Lodge,
that there is a great Rebublican
journul who puts the President upon
an eminence in statesmanship that
should thrill every true American
with pride. The Globe-Democrat
does itself great credit and while
placing the President on an eminence
justly earns one for itself.
The people of the United States
take great pride in the fact that the
Aftnistice was arranged on Aerms as j
outlined by our President and feel j

are still prouder that the allies have
