FRIDAY, AUGUST 3, 1917. HONORING OUR BOYS. In entertaining the men of his district who are members of Company I, or who are subject to draft, Commissioner Hardy has set a worthy example. When, on June 5, the nation stepped i '-ward and volunteered for the great cause, the occasion was virtually made a national holiday. It was celebrated as the great offering of democracy. Xow that the actual heroes are being chosen, is not the cause for jubilation many times in creased? Our own Company I is ordered into active service Sunday: it will probably Itave for the training camp at Black Point nday, so only a few hours remain in which wc can fulfill at once our duty and ot.r privilege in extending proper recogni tion of their service. A public demonstration the day they en train has been suggested and the idea is p. good one; but, privately, our people ilnuld do everything they can in th meantime to show they appreciate what a fine and noble thing these volunteers are doing. The next proudest thing to going to the front is knowing somebody who is. And those who are waiting for the draft are just as entitled to honr,-. If indi vidual volunteering is, splendid, think how magnificent collective volunteering is. And it is these who have given our nation that glory! Add to this the distinction of being chosen, one in fifteen, for the great task abroad! The men who arc drawn and the men who have volunteered, are well known; Irt Iheir friends honor them individually: let their communities honor them publicly. CHIPLEY AND THE WAR. Chipley, small in size, is big in accom plishment. Chipley has already formed :nr theme more than once Chipley is one of those towns that supply texts to grate fid editorial writers . Pariotism is the spirit of the day, and where can one find a more vigorous devel opment than in Chipley? Even before war was declared Chipley's company was almost ready: it didn't take long to have it ready for the muster-in. And. besides, there is hardly a home in the little city that is not represented in some arm of the service. And Chipley's ladies have responded they inspired enlistments, they feted the boys who heard the honor call they de voted themselves to Red Cross work and in one day raised SoOO for the fund. Those who stay are fighting the food 1 attic. Chipley itself is one conglomera tion of vegetable gardens; outside, where cotton once was. are now vast fields of corn, peanuts, potatoes, sugarcane and truck. Herds of cattle browse on the meadow lands: sleek porkers are growing visiblv iatter as they rest in the shade, after pon derous meals. Every woman has become a domestic policeman to enforce the laws oi conservation, and even when thev are off duty and meet for a social chat, the topic is canning and preserving. Chipley, first in peace, is naturally first in war. THE SCRATCH PAD By THOMAS EWING DABNEY. THE RUSSIAN FRONT FOR DEMOCRACY Nothing makes a man feel to old' as to be the father of a boy. ! Follow planting directions care-; fully, and you are sure to have luck j with your garden good or bad. ; One hundred and one deaths from j the heat in New York City in one day. No German airplane raid over j London ever made a record like this. ; Admiral Capps told us what we; may expect from the shipping board j when he said that work and not talk 1 will build ships. Soon there won't be enough base ball players left for public exhibi-; tions, and the bleacher athletes will j have to play their own games. j The number of marriage up North i proves that there are still a lot of; men who prefer to do their fighting i t home. i If it is true that the Crown Prince's: continued attacks on Verdun are dic-! tated by a desire to become a popular" j hero, he is still a long way from i fven having a five cent cigar named j after him- I Sometimes we think there is some-j thing in a name, sometimes we don't. ; The Nogales man with number 2")8 was Will Fite, but the second man i called in a Missouri district was Will B. Slacker. i AMERICA'S AWAKENING. How great has been the development of. America's understanding within the past year is evident to anybody who compares the reception of "Womanhood," the movie spectacle that closed a two-day run here yesterday, with that accorded "The B-.ule Cry ofj.'cace" some months ago. Both carry the same message pre paredness; the two stories are practically identical; the treatment is similar. From a standpoint of technique, there is little to choose. "The Battic Cry of Peace" unwound its lesson to a quiet and unresponsive house. -Many, of course, realized the truth of the doctrine stated and illustrated, but the great majority was not touched. But "Womanhood!" People gripped the chair arms as they saw the horrors of paciriism worked out to their logical re sult they cried as they saw our untrained "overnight" armv sacrificed to a scientific foe; the- cheered as they saw the people gradually awakening to the pride of race: they recognized themselves in the picture; they shouted themselves hoarse when vie to y flung wide the stars and stripes again. It is not that we are at war now and were at peace then. The size of our task now might well be expected to make us silent yes, and the danger, too, because our awakening almost came too late; whereas, then. we. were still lull of the oombast that America could lick the world without preparation. But America cheers n-w, not because it thinks it will win. but because it knows how to win. Xor will the lesson be forgot ton when our boys finally come marching home with the world made safe for democracy. Americans have been delivered from a great peril and they know it every dav increases their knowledge, and they will not run snrh mnd rik nrrnin. but with a THE I. W. W. What is the I. W. W. that Bisbee has r, mi out of town, that is fighting American military plans? Let Bill Haywood, the sccretarv and treasurer of the organization, himself an swer. We quote an interview he gave out the other day: "They ran't stop us. "r matter n"at thv w will rn rn ami on until we -the rough-no r-ks nf this worlrt will take control of ail production and work when we plen.e and how much w please. The man who makes the wnpnn -will rifle in It himself. "Hell, what' the use of taikinp ahotit anything hut the man who works with his hands? "The I W. W. seeks only that kin. of men. The oll union lahor crowd, hearted hy (Jumpers and his Bilk hat lmncta. won't pet anywhere. They're in with the oppressors hilt of the time. We (hn't so after the skilled rnen. although they are weh -mo to our oryai.ization. -e nrf, nat looking for the hie!,;. rows. "Ours is a rough-neck pans. T'.iat's what tl.ey call up, but when ail of our crowd pet tills thing straight In our minds, we will be in a position to 'lie. tate terms to every industry in the world. How'.' By foldii e our arms and completely stopping ail work until our terms are met. "It will he easy. Wnge systems will he no more. The rough-necks, as the highbrows rail us. will he th ones running things. And the highbrows will have to pet onio our platform. We are not going up on theirs. Th only right solution of the problem of life in this world is bringing everybody down to our basis of living." Thsi is not the philosophy of labor, or ganized or unorganized. It is not even the philosophy of honest men who work only with their hands, for they are trying to raise themselves and develop their brains. It is the talk of men opposed to society, and. being opposed to society, they easily lend themselves to agitation intended to help Germany.

If perhaps he is younger than some of the others, he is even wiser, for he enlisted on January 28, before war was declared he realized the preparedness that each man owes his country, and did not wait for the blow to fall When war was declared and America began to pour her men into France, his mother, mother-like, asked if he could get a discharge and he could have gotten it, but he wrote back, telling what mothers, despite their fears, love best to hear from their sons that never could he consent to lay off his uniform so long as the country and what it stood for was in danger. He is a Pensacola boy his name is Fred P. McDaniel. of 508 East Chase street; and his mother has given a copy of his letter to The .Tournai for such sentiments, like the deeds that inspire them, are the nation's due. Fred writes: Fort Sill. Okla., July 23, 1917. Dear Mother: I received your most highly appreciated letter today, and was glad to hear from you, indeed, but I am sorry you are not feeling well. Mother, you ask me about getting a discharge. Now I wi'l tell you all Tf I take a discharge, some other mother's boy will have to tnke my place, and the way I look at it is this: Do you think that I could stand and see the flag of Germany fly above Old Glory? No. Now. America has done for me and it is war and time for me to do for my own lear country, and I will stand bv Old Glory' until tlie last rlroP of 21V hlood is gone. And mother, ! could not lay aside this dear old uniform, or let someon" else rviar it; no; I am for my loved ones at home, and mother, I am not stay ing for money, but for peace and freedom, and I will always be for it untij T die. "Mother, it is something to think about, this war is terrible, and for me to accept a discharge as healthy and as strong as I am no. no, not I! Never will T see Germany's old flag fly over Old Glory, and my loved ones and my sweetheart no, no, mother; T wil stay until the war is over; then I will come Borne to you when Old Glory flies over Germany, and there is peace once more. I remain as ever, your loving son. FRED r. McDANIF.L, Motor Truck Company No. 4, Fort SiH, Okla.
