Q AND WAS GLAD TO GOME BACK HOME John Thoni and Emil Spoihe left New York on July 8th. with the intention of spending several months in Europe, bat on the 1st of August we wore in Zurich, Switzerland, and the war broke out, so nil the Swiss soldiers had to go on the border between Franco, Germany and Switzer- land, and at times we could see them march by, while thero was a Heavy rain fall lasting severa' hours, but the Swiss soldiers did not seem to mind it and all ap peared to bo in the best of spintp, so on August the Gtli, we went to see the American Consul at Zu rich to see if we could get somo passports, for I did not have my American papers, so he fixed us up with several hundred more Americans and I felt greatly re lieved, so we found out there were some steamers sailing from Geneva Italy, and thought we would try tlifit route, but before gaft).g far wo found out pussugo on steamers coBt from $500 up, and wejkne.wthat wo could not do business with them, so after waiting in Zurich about 15 days the. French and Swiss government arranged1 for a special train con sisting of 2 eugines and eighteen conches and 800 passengers which took us via. Geuevn, Lyon and Paris and from 'there to Harve, France, where wo boarded the French stoamer Roobambenu and sailed on same Aug. 80, for New York, under the American flag,- " thiswas steerage passage and thero were 800 of us Americans down iu the hole and the other 800 that came oh the special train wout to Liverpool, Englaud, While wo were at Rouen, France, letting some of the soldier trains pass, w.o could see the wounded soldiers in through the windows, some had their hands and arms shot' off, and think, they were taking them to Paris, France, for medical attention. We also saw there at Roneu, Franco, muster ing in young boys appearing to be between the ages of 17 and 20 years old. We'were also talkiiig to some of the English soldiers : Don't .

Ou the night of the 7th of September-We arrived in New York, and when I saw the beautiful statue of liberty on the ittle island in New York Bay, 1 thought it was the grandest of things seen ou tho entire trip, and did not fail to salute. So wo all felt grateful to the Swiss and French government and our offi cials in Washington for the assis tance rendered, but protriised them we would never give them any more trouble in Europe, as America was good enough for us. was talking to a good many on our steamer that were given fin ancial aid by the American con sul at Zurich audall toll me they all received what they needed.

From all over the land comes a mighty protest against the high price of foodstuffs.' Thonatioual government, state authorities and. municipalities areseeking the cause, but with out appreciable result. The government says it is hot, the fault of the retailer, and un- questiouably the goverumeut is is right. But there the govern raeut rests. And when the federal govern meut, with. all the power and re sources at its command, cannot solve the problem or jcheqk the robbery it is time fqr the bumble citizen to.pause audthink. The time may ovon'come when it will become necessary for him to act. And that action should take the course of devisidgsomo meth od whereby the foodstuffs may travel from the producer to the consumer without passing thru too many hands. Under the pres ent, system many hands handle them' and many mouths are fed from the profits before they trav el the distance from field to con sumer, or even to the totaiier. And the consumer pays the bills. There 'is no question but that the fault lies with the middle man, wholesalers, cold storage men and speculators, each one of whom must extract the largest possible margin of profit before he passes it on 'to the next leech. And with half a dozen human Vultures fastening their talons upon every article of diot, it is uot to be wondered at that tho public finds itse(f plucked to the bones. The retailer and the producer and the consumer should join bauds in a determined effort, to eradicate the vultures, and re duce the,cost of living to eomet thing within the. founds of rea son. , . r The fact that a wave of pros perity, seems to ffealjead Of ua is no rgason "wjiy the consuming public should calmly subrai to being gouged in the matter of its foodstuffs. Oan anyone in this community suggest a reasonable solution to the problem? ' Yet mi chuM o tin tkla, f-orskU rm. M Ml 4f-4 . at STOP HEADACHE OR NEURALGIA AT ONCE Don't Suffer!

One hears nowadays much com plaint of modern school meth ods. Much of this censure is no doubt just. Yet two many par ents criticise' without tiaviug made any personal observation of the schools. The public do,es not compre hend the strain of school work. The parent can barely maintain stable goyernmetit through vaca tion. Yet she feels that" the teachfer can easily subjugate the fqrty or nny children that,, are unloaded on her in the great majority of towns. She does not realize how much diplomacy and . . . enthusiasm it takes to organize these little anarchists into a workfng body. ' For these quali ties, iteu dollars a week ib com monly considered fair compensa tion, and seven of this 6um goes for board. -The average teacher has to handle too many children. In a crowded room", discipline alone is a big propositions Then in' a five hours session there, is only about minutes per pupil for in struction. The public school child gets his educatf ou largely by "hearing the others recite. But the others may not ask the questions that.bother your boy. Better-work is doiie in some private schools, but not because people with more money can buy braius for their, children.' A pet ted child is. a little loafer. The private school teacher has fewer children to look after, conse quently she can lead them as in dividuals, doss not have to drive them as a herd. Tax payers every where-say the schools have reached the limit of expense. More teachers could not ba afforded. Yet somehow mafay towns afford buff brick and, stone buildings, where once wood waapoiuted at with pride as au ornament. The teacher drills her over grown flock through the machine as bestehe can, grinding them out often on a dead level. But let this de better realized, that more teadiers and more time for iudwidual attentiou would do far more'for the boys und girls than the haudsoraest brick, grauite or raarblo.

Scy. HOPKINS COUNTY INVADED By Night Aiders The Little Town of Dawson Scene1 of Much Excitement Saturday Night . THREE MEN GIV EN WHIPPING An apparently sporadic out burst of lawlessness in the south ern part of Hopkfns Co., whlcfe occured last Thursday a"nd Satur day nights, has just comotoligHt and was heard of here and at the county 6eat today for the first time. It is learned that a com pany of nightriders visited Dawr son Springs on Saturday night and whipped three men who are residents of that place. The names given are William Hamby, a farmer who is Baid to have been interested in a loose leaf tobacco proposition, Henry Jordon, who is reported to be an unlicensed holiness preacher, and Jordoris son. Reliable reports state that the marauders took charge of the electric ligh.t plant about mid night and forced the enginees to shutdown, giving him orders at the revolver's point not to start the lights burning until after four o'clock in the morning. "jThe engineer thought it a joke until .a-rider-.'stnek ..pistol -into. his- ribs. The town was dark for the rest of the night. Reports say there were seventy-five men m the party. It is ateo reported that two men named Johnson were whipped last Thursday night in the' neighborhood of Hamby Station in the same sec tion of the county. No reason is suggested for these latter whip pings. , Hopkins County hna gen erally escaped any such inamfes- tation of outlawry and citizens generally feel outraged and are , denouncing these lawless raiders.
