YOU [TAKE NO MISTAKE WHEN YOU VOTE FOR JAMES K. VARDAMAN FOR U. S. SENATE V \ BAY ST. LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY, JUNE 29, 1918. STANDING BACK OF THE GOV ERNMENT. • Next to dishonor, war is the great est calamity that can befall a nation. We are now beginning to realize how far-reaching its effects are. It is not too much to affirm that the war ef fects to some degree the condition of life for every man. woman and child in the country. From the loss of life itself the sacrifice runs all the way down the scale to a slight de privation of comfort or luxury. But for every widespread disaster there is usually a small modicum of good to place in the other side of the balance. it may not apparently make a hair’s weight of difference against the ill, but it is there and per ceptible if we look for it. What have we of good to set against the evils of war? Our answer would be. Greater na tional unity. A year ago we were for the most part a country of individ uals, individual communitids, indi vidual States. Men were pursuing their own object, communities were not looking beyond their own im- j provement. State were caring for, their own people. Now .all horizon are broadened when a man sees his on or his neigh hor’s son going forth to war. his thought involuntarily goes out to the i environment of that boy, the condi tions he .will meet, and the govern ment which provides or regulates them. He realizes that the govern ment will have to provide these boys with the simple necessities, food, clothing and shelter. It will also have tp provide them with training, transportation, weapons, artillery and aircraft for their protectioTi, me dical services and hosrvtals for their care, and a hundred other essentials. <r, d •*be man begins to realize that is on to him in his individual card' I’tv 1 ’tv to stand back of the govern ment, to take his mart in providing these absolutely necessary things in his own rightful proportion, either from his abundance or from his bare sufficiency. And we need onlyto see the ban ners of the Th rd Liberty Loan in the windows of homes throughout the land to understand how magnifi cently the individuals have risen to their duty and opportunity. Every where in the homes of the rich and the homes of the noor alike the ban ners signal proudly: “I have given rs I can to the call of the nation. It is my nation and I am with it heart and soul in the hour of its need.” i We cannot estimate + he aggregate r.r-v flees which this splendid show ing has reouired. In mar.v cases it meant the giving op of comforts, per hars of oherishmi pMns. But each man who have subscribed for his bond or bonds feels, that he is a compote:’ rart of bis country, that he stands or falls with it, and that it is a country worthy of his sacrifice. He is in har mony of feeling with his neighbor, his dommunity, his State and his Nation. pm/ pij Dfrc ;i\pnp buV. pilDu 0 LMCim THE STATE OF MISSISSIPPI. EXECUTIVE DEPARTMENT, CITY OF JACKSON.

D. 191^ “GERMAN EFFICIENCY.” * Occasionally we still hear refer ence to the much vaunted “German efficiency.” These references come mostly from either positive pro-Qer man sympathizers or from timorous souls who throw a fit whenever “this dreadful war” is mentioned. : People of intelligence have long ago 1 learned to estimate this efficiency at its true value, and have ceased to stand in awe of it. The efficiency of Germany is pure ly an efficiency of constant applica tions. Her present militant condition is the result of a life time of unre mitting attention to every conceiva ble angle of the gam e of war. While the other nations of the war were quietly pursuing the paths of peace, Germany was straining every nerve and devoting all her accumulations of men and means to the task*of cre ating an army of armament before which the world would find it im- 1 possible to stand. During most of this time shp was hypocritically participating is the Hague confer-; cnees and proposing the total disar mament of all nations, but in the e of recent developments know sat during all this discussion her war reparations were never slackened. Even Germany’s efficiency in the arts and sciences has been made to serve the dread Moloch of War. In | extending her influence among the j nations of the earth in these branch-1 es, she has been for years building j “spheres of influence” in other t words, nests and spies and potential l traitors against the day when their, servicss should be needed by the fath-i erland. Yes, Germany has efficiency. Kiri• , I -Pi o:• (I ' i sinatlon, evidenced,by the brutal des truction of vessels by her sea vipers, ■v.ien even women and children at tempting to escape in open boats have been shelled, mangled and sunk; evidenced by her wanton destruction of civilian life by her air planes and Zeppelins; evidenced by the deliberate murder of prioners of war who, by* all the laws o fthe nations, should have received honorable and humane treatment. r-'p as wirr'PSßPfi in in her rap P of Belgium, for no other reason than that she stood between a brutal tyrant and his intended vic tim; evidenced by attempt to array other nations against our own coun try, at the same tim P her represen tative to .our capital was shedding crocodile tears over his forced depar ture and separation fom his “dear friends in America” —doubtless hp took with him for the perusal of his butcher master full proofs of his treachery while enjoying our hos pitality and esteem. The Germany o; other days was noted for efficiency, but that effi ciency has peen prostituted to most ignoble ends. God save us from such efficiency! BUY YOUR COAL NOW FOR WIN TER. | I Fuel Administrator R. W. Webb says too much stress cannot be laid on the fact that you must buy your coal now or freeze next winter. This < ome ni'-’ht tid 1 1 a joxe but} it is far from being one. The following is a list of people who should not put in their supply of fuel for next winter now. There may be some others. The gentleman who has been in- \ formed by the court that he is to be nm ' v ?rngfd on the 2,-ird of Sepl. j The householder who knows that j his house is going to burn down be-, 1 fore Oct. 1. i The fellow who hrw ensured j by his doctor and minister that he will soon be where the heat is free. The man who will have his resi dence astridp of the equator from •September to June, to June. The party who had 12 tons of coal or 20 cords of wood left over from last winter. The husband who has arranged to spend the winter with his wife’s relat ions. The man who belongs to a nice ' warm club and had decided not to go j home at all hereafter. Editors who advertise that they are in market for spring poetry. Hardy mariners in training to ac- j company Peary on his next dash for the pole. . | Persons going to the front and leav ing no one to the rear. Pessimists desiring something that j will take their mnds otf their own | troubles. Wife’s relations who have arranged i to spend the winter with the husband. Malefactors of great wealth who ex pect by that time to huv P gotten what is coming to them. t Cigarette smokers who smoke a round munition plants. Persons who are going to spend the winter in Florida and will, there fore, have nothing else to spend. Automobile drivers who do not stop to look up and down the track to see if there is a train coming. Manufacturers operating brewries. But persons other than these we urgently advise to lay in their supply j of fuel, because winter has never yet! missed a 'date with the world, and it is always much colder in the winter than in the summer.

PIZATTI IN MATTER OF WILL. Chancery Court Gives Her Posses sion. of_ Mississippi- Property As the Heir of Captain Piz zati, Her Late Husband. GULFPORT, Miss., June 27.—The case of Mrs. Frances Pizzati against Robert Woodville and John Alonzo *. oouvilie was decided in favor of Mrs. Francies Pizzati, widow of the late Captain Salvator Pizzati, giving ner tna Mississippi property us the heir of Captain Pizzati. The suit was a contest over a will, on the ground that Capt. Pizzati was an old man, in feeble health, at the time he executed said will, and was influenced by John Woodville to the extent that said John Alonzo Wood ! ville induced him to make a will de vising ail of his disposable property to Robert Woodville of Utilla, Spanish 1 Honduras father of John Alonzo Woodville. Mrs. Pizzati brought suit to set aside this will on the grounds or uxulu. influence on the uari of said John Alonzo Woodville, who was nam ed as executor in said will. The evidence went to show that Capt. Pizzati, at the time he executed said will 23 days before his death, was 76 years old, in feeble health, suffering from a number of diseases, and that John Alonzo Woodville was his constant companion and confiden tial friend as well as his attorney. Mr. Woodville denied the charges, saying that Capt. Pizzatti made the will in gratitude to Robert Woodville for saving his life'some forty years ago on the rocky shore of Spanish Honduras. The jury after hearing the evi dence decided that undue influence had been practiced on Capt. Pizzatti by Mr. W r ooville and set aside the will. This is the third case in the courts of this county growing out of the said will brought by Mrs. Pizzati against the Woodvilles, each of which Mrs. Pizzati has won. SEVENTEEN WHITE SELECT MEN LEAVE.

Ames and waspard’s regular program on Monday night, July Ist, one of the interesting war pictures authorized by the United States and French Governments and released ex clusively through the American Red Cross. The film is entitled “Field Service on Uie Western Front,” in which are given a number of interesting and thrilling pictures of the American Volunteer Ambulance Gorps in action. In one the life-savers are seen tak ing their first lessons in military train ing; in another tney are being review ■■ l by General Pershing; another shows them starting on a perilous mis sion, and later they are found taking the wounded soldiers from the field and trenches and returning with their loads of shatteded humanity. In a never-ending stream the wagons oi mercy are seen to rush back and inrtJi, shielded bv a comuflage screen that keeps them out of view of the enemy. In the thousand feet of film of never-varying views lied Cross Vv ord ers occupy prominent places in the scenes enacted. LOS ANGELES IN PLAY. Tom Mix’s Picture Shows Thriving California City. Everybody who is interested in mo tion pictures—which means about everybody, every-where—is anxious to know aooul Los Angeles, tor it is there that many of the great films are made. The William Fox picture '•Western Blood,” in which Tom Mix is the star has a large part of its ac tion laid right in the city of Los An geles and so when the picture was created the scenes for it were made in the actual place where they were supposed to have occured. This is one of the very few pictures that was acturally taken at the place where thev are suppored to have occurred. The scene of this drama just nat urally led to the city of Los Angeles The place in real life has its exciting sides and one of them is the visiting of the men from the ranches of New Mexico and Arizona. Most of these visitors are actual friends of Tom Mix apd it is natural that He should writs a story about them. So beyond the interest that comes in this picture from the cleverness of seeing Los Angeles as it really is and to appreciate that is is a big thriving city situated in a beautiful land. “Western Blood” will be shown at the A. & G. Theatre next week. Role of a Trapper From the Canadian North Wood* Said to Fit Geo. Behan, Paramount Star, Like the Proverbial Glove. As Jules Lemaire, a laughing, sing ing, high-spirted and wnole-souied trapper from the great forests of the Canadian wilds, George Beban in his latest Paramount picture, “Jules of the Strong Heart,” hasfound a role that is absolutely suited to his talents and one of which he finds opportunity for the exercise of all his faculties of character delineation. That combination of nrimitive kind ness, robust spirits, and rollicking dis position, coupled with a gustly temper and bravery of the highest order make up a character of the sort that few besides Mr. Baben can adequate- Iv portray and it is his ability in this respect that has made him so wonderfully successful in his Para mount photoplays. “Jules of the Strong Heart” was a powerful and vital short story which appeared in Colliers, and from it Frank X. Finnegan and Harvey F. Thew have written a scenario that is said to be virile, thrilling, full of the milk of*human kindness, replete with romance and the odor of the pine forests. The story is one of the high-hearted d-U~ —< 1- I THE ECHO’S | Job Printing Department * U Complete mad Up-to-Dete , POWER EQUIPPED TWENTY-SEVENTH YEAR. NO. 25. Jules to uphold the honor of his sweet heart’s father and to save his friend’s baby from privation. Misjudged and even tortured on these counts Jules finally makes good. This picture, which was filmed largely at Hoquiam, Washington, at the Lasky Lumber Camp, where a complete studio was erected, fully sus tains the reputation already possessed by Mr. Beban for unusual and wholly satiffying character creations. The star is supported bv a powerful cast and the direction of Donold Crisp as sures technical perfection down to the last detail. “Jules of the Strong iieart'* wdl appear next week at the A. & G. Theatre. See advertisement elsewhere in The Echo. Mary Pickford at the A. & G. Theatre Next Week. Comedy holds full sway in “Amar illy of Clothes Line Alley,” the next Artcraft following “Stella Maris,” which starts Mary Pickford, and which will be exhibited at the A. & G. theatre, Thursday night of next week. While in every picture presenting Miss Mary Pickford there has been more or less comedy and the star has time and again proven herself a comedinne of rar* 1 ability as w as an actress capable of any height of emotional acting, it is said that there has never before been a Pick ford photoplay wherein humor pre dominated to such an extent as in this new story of the slum. There are many moments of genu ine pathos and any number of thrills in the course of the picture, but laughter will hold away, overcoming momentary predisposition to tears. Throughout the story “Our Mary,” winsome, dainty withal, presents a convincing figure of the little tene ment girl staying far afield into the realms of the idle rich, lured by the blandishments of a scion of wealth, but returns at last to her natural en vironments, where she finds happiness.
