The success of the vaudeville pro duction given Tuesday night by the men of Camp Greenleaf in honor of the visiting medical experts was so pronounced that It has been decided to a-ive Chattanooga an opportunity to see the rare talent of the enlisted men of the nearby cantonments. In the cast are many who have seen serv ice before the glare of the real foot lights, including the delectable Mrs. Gregory, who was herself recently a grand opera star. So the Lyric the ater has heen secured for Monday matinee and night and a, fourteen-act vaudeville show is to make a ripple in Chattanooga's somnolent season. The program which has been com pleted Included fourteen acts, all, with the exception of a solo by the colonel's wife, by soldier actors. In fact, one of the striking features of the evening is that it is to be entirely a soldier affair. Soldiers will sell tickets, sol diers will usher, they will supply the orchestra and even shift scenes and pull the curtain up and down in re sponse to the "thunderous applause." Matinee prices have been set at 10, 25 and 85 cents, and evening at 15, 25, 9K and a fnur at 7K rnnt KJld thf TirO- ceeds are to be utilized to endow a bed in a military nospuai in rance. The seat sale Is to Start Friday. Thnnirh Tuesday nleht's Droararn was expected to be Interesting that Is, from trie appeal or ail amateur ; plays, and especially enjoyed by those . mhn lnonr th rtn ri Ir.lnn n t th A Rur.

When the pro ducers began to get their material to gether they were surprised to find how many real ex-profesnlonal aotors there were who have enlisted In the medi cal service. So the show, though ama teur, has a real smack of the finished professional production. The program is to open with a con cert bv a specially selected band from Camp Greenleaf. This will play while the audience is neing seniea. An or chestra of twenty-five pieces, directed hv T lout A. M Pnrhnrt. takes its rilace. however, when the curtain rises. Act one is billed ns "The Georgia Cotton ricers." This offers some es peclally tuneful negro selections by MRS. SNYDER RECOhlMEIIDS LUI1G-VITA Says She Had an Awful Cough and Had Tried a Number of Thing's Without Belief. "I suffered with an awful cough for about two years and I had three doc tors treating me at different times but none of them did me any good." says Mrs. W. Q. Snyder, who lives at 817 East Hth Street, Chattanooga, Tenn., In a statement given a short time ago. "I had almost given up hope that I would find relief. Finally i-ung-Vlta was recommended and I decided to try it. I begsn taking the medicine and It helped me at once. I do not cough now as I did and I sloop better and my ap petite Is also much better. I used to have a fever every evening, but I do not have It any more, and I think that Lung-Vita stopped it. Lung-Vita is a good medicine for bronchial troubles and I recommend it to people suffering with this trouble." Have you a cough hanging on from last winter? .If so you should break it up. Just a bottle of Lung-Vita and lake a few doses. This harmless com pound will give a, relief and do it quickly. Lung-Vita la sold by druggists and dealers. (Adv.) ragtime musicians, led by Sergt. Nun ell, soloist. Act two Is to be J. F. Frost in his Impersonation of the side-severing Bert Williams. Fro, was one of the hits of the show Tuesday night. He Is himself a former vaudevillian and an actor of ability. ' Frost is followed by a demonstra tion in fancy skating said to rival the feats of fair Charlotte, who startled New York last winter. S. L. Lover is on wheels rather than ice, however, buv his whirling contortions are said lose nothing by the change of yenue. Fourth comes the boy who startled Greenleaf with a demonstration of rope throwing. L. D. Foster is his name and he halls from the wild ana neecy, He has even been with Jess Wlllard s hrnncho-hiiBtlnar show and has flung out a challenge to ride any nag, -witn out pulling leather," in Tennessee or Georgia. Act five is George Parks, a baritone soloist who has an exceptionally sweet volee. Whitney Yeatle holds the spot next with an impersonation of the Scotch character actor, Harry Lauder, and those who saw Tuesday night's show say that if Harry can do it half as well himself he is "some boy!" Another professional is Walter E. Wilklns, who has danced in the famous Russian dancer I'avlowa's company, and who will be seen in a whirlwind interpretation of a bolshevikl retreat, Eva. Tanauay is not to be overlooked, Gilbert Squires Is said to "more than impersonate" the lady who made "I don't care" go down In history as a classic. In a star position in the center of the bill comes Mrs. Gregory, who ines. In tha same oleo are K. A, Winfree, who plays the violin; Private Frayne at the piano, and a name oo blieato by Keece Kilgore. All are ex ceptlonal artists and the act is said to be one of real merit Lang and Himler, real vaudeville performers of long standing, are to offer a bit of humorous nonsense and a Spanish fandango. Then comes James Bendfeldt, doing the cobra dance, which served as a vehicle to squirm Ruth St. Denis into a position as a top-notcher and enabled her to open a skyscraper studio where wealthy ladles go to learn "grace" and have their photos taken in scanty clothing "for art's sake. Six soldiers, directed by Sergt. C. A, Masse, who has seen service as a the atrical producer, do the sextet from "Lucia," and then tnirteentn, nui onus ing no 111 luck, is Harry Wonbrldge, the Cornish tenor, who sings war songs in a way that makes the audience Join with him. The program closes with an effective tableau showing the now famous "Stricken Belgium." The en tertalnment Is snid to be one of the most elaborate amateur ventures ever produced here. ROBBERS BLOW SAFE OF RINGGOLD BANK Somnolence of Little Town Not Disturbed and the Yeggmen Make Off With $4,000. Yegamsn entered the vault of the Bank of Ringgold at Ringgold, Ga., Wednesday night, blew open the safe and secured approximstely $4,000 in eurrenoy and silver. They did the "job" so quietly that the slumber of the town was not even dieturbed, and the; robbery was not discovered until the, bank was opened Thursday morning.! N. P. Manning II the cashier of the bank and E. O. Reed Is teller. Mr. Manning stated, when called over long distance telephone Thursday, that the vault combination Vas knocked off and the safe blown open. He did not know whether any papers were, taken, but said all the money was secured. He explained that the laVs was covered by Insurance. According to Mr. Man ning, no one henrd.the report of the blowing of the safe A stranger is said to have been seen In Ringgold for tufo days. Sheriff Harris, of the Georgia town, notified the local police department of the robbery by means of long distance telephone. I Hlootfhounds of iPerry Phlpps were railed for and have been sent to the scene. A theory Is that the person or per sons who left a bundle of tools, several sticks of dynamite, some nitroglycer ine, many feet of fuse and some boxes of caps in Chattanooga recently had something to do with the Ringgold robbery. The explosives left here were found Sundsy sfternoon, and the pre sumplion Is that they were Intended for a big Job in this city. ' No Time Filed ..

There was once a Philanthropist, before the time when helpful folk wore that big; name, who went about among the people serving them. Al though the wisest man in the world, He was not a theorist writing books about philanthropy in a detached study. He kept close to the unwashed, sweaty, bad-mannered, ungrateful, common people, who sometimes whined kbout their diseases and their hard ships, and were not always worthy of the labor He bestowed upon them. Yet day and night, caring not for the .cost of himself, this Friend healed and helped and comforted. He was the ideal social worker. ' The Passion for People., As He moved among them, this Philanthropist was stirred to His heart's depth by the needs of His neighbors for He liked to call people His neighbors. An ancient report ,of His experiences says, "When He saw the multitude, He was moved with compassion for them, because they were distressed and scattered as sheep not having a shepherd." Another in terpretation of the same account is even more moving "He saw them as sheep with the fleece torn off, bleeding, and unable to rise up." Compassion for pebple was the first mark of this Friend. He was the merciful minister. Although Ho never took a course in any school of philan thropy, He himself was a .Teacher in the school of love. He had a rare capacity for affection. He loved men In the mass, and yet with a realization of their individuality without any limit This passion for people has become contagious. Since exemplified by the Master it has grown to be the domi nant note of our time. There is a new hymn that is being much sung in Oreat Britain and is making its way in America, which embodies this modern sense of the claims of multitude. It Is called "God Save the People," and is sung to the tune of "Commonwealth." "When wilt Thou save the people T O God of mercy, when? Not kings and lords, but nations! Not thrones and crowns, but men! Flow'rs of Thy heart, O God, are they; Let them not pass, like weeds, away, Their heritage a sunless day God save the people! "Shall crime bring crime forever. Strength aiding still the strong? Is it Thy will. O Father, That man shall toll for wrongt No! Say Thy mountains; No! Thy skies; Man's clouded sun shall brightly rise And songs ascend instead of sighs, God save the people! "When wilt Thou save the people? O God of mery, when? The people, Lord, the people; Not thrones and crowns, but men! God save the people; Thine they are. Thy children, as Thine angels fair From vice, oppression and despair God save the people! Where Are ths Workers? As this Frrend tolled amid the masses, He wondered at the lack of helpers. It seemed to Him that this business of serving people was the most beautiful work In the world, and the one bast woHth while verily, a man's J b! As for Himself, He asked no other lot, and help no other ambi tion than to work for and to give His life for the help of the people. This condition which, as our lesson story shows, obtained in ancient Gall lee, is still true today. Social service of many sorts Is calling for men. The church wants workers, the Sunday school wants workers and teaching a class of boys and Rlrls the right Ideals of life Is about the highest form of social service. The old cry for helpers still rings throughout the world. Every Christian leader enn tell of the hours he spends in trying to argue men Into doing helpful service which should be their privilege and Joy. . "The harvest truly is plenteous, but the laborers are few." 8tirting an Endless Chain. Most of us have had experience with the pernicious chain lotters which are designed to go on endlessly making their begging appeal. There are other endless chains far worthier. One was started when this great man-Lover found Himself confronted by the claimant needs of the people, and so organised a scheme of perpetual ser vice. He called twelve big men Into Ills fellowship and trained them In service. TheL In turn, were to select and school otbers. That method has gftne on to the present time. Through all the centuries the goodly company or the apostles has been growing. w noever Is doing apostolic work of ministry Is In the apostolic succession. All servants of Christ are links in the endless ehaln which He established when on earth. There are many points of difference between this organizations and other societies. One Is that real authority was Klvon unto the friends of Christ The final word In nil things of char acter and conduct is with the right iood Is the master of evil; salntllness has the right to rebuke sin; goodness prevails over badness. There is more grass than weeds In the earth, and more ngnt than darkness. Kouehlv counting up some of the achievements or tne apostles and their successors, we find thnt permanent victory is with the Christ crowd. Ths Powsr of the Avsrage Man. All over Christendom we see statues i nd pictures of the apostles. Com monly they are shown with bales iround their heads. Sometimes chil dren think that the apostles wore these when they were alive. The tendency is to conventionalize the reality out of those everyday peasants in the com mon clothes of their neighborhood, and with t usled hair and hands calloused and soilcj with honest labor. That Is the sort of men Jesus chose to carry on this greatest work of the world. He did not ko to the Snnhrdrln or to the palare for Mis cabinet, but He went out where ten ordinary everyday fol were to be met. If this leon aivompllshr anything I It shou'.d dirahiiKe some minds of the I Idea that the coming of the Kingdom' of Heaven depends upon the rare and exceptional men. Let it be said over and over again, with all possible em. phasia, that the best friend of God is the comi on man. Lincoln's homely saying contained ' a profound truth, that "the Lord Almighty must love the common people, because He made so many of them." The churches are comprised in overwhelming prepon derance of plain folk. The "one man" church is always a failure. Straight from the apostles comes this message of the indispensibillty of ordinary people. The success of, evangellrm, missions, reform, and all other Christ causes, is to come by the union of the many in the service of the will "of Christ. ' , The Marching Orders. . ".Travel light" is good counsel for those who fare forth from home. Jesus sent His apostles out to their ministry with instructions to go about In the simplest fashion, and with the most meagre equipment Goods always encumber. When religion grows highly organized Its tendenscy la to become too cumbersome for efficiency. Thus the great office . buildings which de nominations are erecting, and the huge endowments for city churches, are by no means an unmixed blessing. Out of the war will come new ' lessons of simplicity for religion.. The first con sideration is that ajl servants of Christ should be free and untrameled. Their business is primarily with the mes sage. In high dignity, and yet in ut most simplicity, they are to carry a story to the world. What if the world will not receive the almply told story? Shall we all impress them by the wealth and mag nificence and power of the church? Ah, that la a fallacy into which re ligion has eften fallen, to the dire hurt of religion and of the world. The twelve were to testify to the truth, but If the truth were not re ceived, then- judgment would lie against those who spurned it It is a terrible thing to know spiritual truth, for with the knowledge comes respon sibility. ' Yet we are answerable for all the truth we can by. any means learn, as well as for that truth which we cannot escape. One last word the lesson contains for the disciple. "He that recelveth you recelveth Me, and he that receive eth Me recelveth Him that sent Me." Christ identifies His representatives with Himself. He goes into all the world through ,them. The world's treatment of them in their sacred mis sion is a treatment" of Himself. That Is a "high calling" indeed. No earthly ambassadorship can equal .in dignity and in power this mission of . working in the name and at the command of Christ. f "The. Best Place to Buy Your Shoes After AUM ease 816 MARKET ST.
