THE
LOCAL SHIPY
HOT AFFECTED BY
SHIP
There has been considerable com
ment in Pensacola regarding the ac
tion taken by the government to check
shipbuilding, especially the construc
tion of wooden ships. Many, have
feared that this section might be a
loser by the curtailment.
A recent dispatch from Washington
presents an optimistic-view of the pro
posed cancellation of contracts.' It
points out that every yard now pre
pared to build ships or barges can be
profitably employed in the work of re
replacing shipping which has been de
stroyed since the beginning of the
war.
The article says: "Instead of being a
blow at the wooden shipbuilding in
dustry, officials see in .the failure of
the government to make contracts past
1919 an opportunity for the yards re
leased from government orders to be
gin the work of private shipbuilding.
It may be possible to obtain more ad
vantageous agreements for these
"It is probable, too, that American
yards, with their facilities created to
meet the war needs of the country,
will be able to build ships for for
eign nations. Wooden yards will be
in demand for creating coastwise ves
sels or ships for the West Indies and
Sn-Amerfca
While none of the local yards is
building under government contract,
all have en operating to capacity for
private account and it Is predicted
that the demand for ships will keen
them busy for many years.

-Meat forms uric acid.
We are a nation of meat eaters and
our blood is filled with uric acid, says
a well-known authority, who warns
us to be constantly on guard against
kidney trouble.
The kidneys do their utmost to free
the blood of this irritating acid, but
become weak from the overwork; they
get sluggish; the eliminative tissues
clog and thus the waste is retained in
the blood to poison the entire system.
When your kidneys ache and feel
Uke lumps of lead, and you have sting
ing pains in the back or the urine is
cloudy, full of sediment, or the blad
der is irritable, obliging you to seek
relief during the night; when you
have severe headaches, nervous and
dizzy spells, sleeplessness, acid stom
ach or rheumatism in bad weather, get
from your pharmacist about four
ounces of Jad Salts: take a tablespoon
ful in a glass of water before breakfast
each morning and in a few days your
kidneys will act fine. This famous
salts is made from the acid of grapes
and lemon juice, combined with lithia,
and has been used for generations to
flush and stimulate clogged kidneys.
to neutralize the acids in urine so it is
no longer a source of irritation, thus
ending urinary and bladder disorders.
Jad Salts is inexpensive and cannot
injure: makes a delightful elferves
cent lithia-water drink, and nobody
can make a mistake by taking a little
occasionally to keep the kidneys clean
and active. Adv,

"If we curse and rave about them,

w,tn a wonderful gift of speech an.1
a voice that has marvelous carrying
power, Mr. Skeyhul is easily one or
the most compelling speakers ever
heard here, and his story of the seige
of Gallipoli, at which he was wounded,-
was one of the most graphic of
descriptions, : and thrilled his hearers
with its story of heroism.
His whimsical humor, his strong de
nunciation of the evil of the war and
his faith in the good that is to come
out of it, were - compelling in their
power and held the audience for more
than half an hour, silent and thrilled
except for frequent laughter and applause.-
At the Baptist Church in the even
ing, Mr. Skeyhill spoke to a large au
dience again under the auspices of the
United War Work camp campaign
committee. '
At the church in the evening Mr,
Skeyhill spoke particularly of the
Poets who had given their lives in the
Great Cause, and of the drama of the
war. At the First Methodist Church
in the morning he spoke to a great au-
dience and again at the Naval Air Sta-
tion in the afternoon
Mr. Skeyhill, who won the British
Literary Prize, has given The Jour
nal the following beautiful poem, for
publication:

Train in So'ith Carolina;
b" me, like the pictures on the
screen, '
1- -.wer brooks and fields of wav

Whilst in the far flung distance, lona
and bare,
The mountains peer from out their
, clouded lair. '
The Cyprus and the maple, of their
verdure, shed,
Stand, stark and still, and silent as the
dead,
A mat of multi-colored flowers below.
Soft drapes the field where fabled
fairies go .
Each night, to serenade beneath thu
trees.
And drink, from silver cups, the in
censed breeze,
Or, mayhap, who can tell what fairies
do,
To wait the morn and suck the pearl
ing dew
Of flowers rich. The sun, a ruby red.
Glows in the west, where colors gar
landed, .
Steal out through, space to fondle and
caress
The lone clouds, , In their virgin love
liness.
High, on the wing, in richest notes,
'id rare.
A wild bird fills the cool autumnal
air
With melody divine. Across the way
A mother watches as her children play.
And down the winding pike, soft-eyerl
and glad
A maiden walks to meet her southern
lad.
And as I sit here In this southbound
train,"
It seems as though the loneliness and
pain'. -
Of blasted hopes, and youthful prom
ises slain - T
Soften since earth was earth, the eyes
of man " -
Have ne'er beheld a more delightful
span . ; y
Than these soft skies and colored hills
so grand.
Oh Lord,' it Is, it is thy promised land.

six months I suffered with a painful weak

remedies failed to reach ray case. I was
induced to try Foley Kidney Fills. Relief

JENKINS TO FACE
MURDER CHARGES
Ceola Jenkins, the colored woman,
who was shot by Julius Jenkins early
last Monday morning died at 7 o'clock
yesterday morning at her home In
MillView as a result of the wounds in
flicted upon her by. the colored man.
This brings the case into more seri
ous consequences for Jenkins and it
is likely that a verdict of manslaugh
ter or murder will be returned by the
coroner s jury which is to meet this
morning at 10 o'clock, and which wa3
empanneled by Coroner W. L. Johnson
and Deputy Sheriff Marble. ;
Jenkins secured entry to. the colored
woman's house through a window and
shot her during the early hours of
the morning. The sheriff's office was
called and the assailant was caught by
Deputy Marble before, noon. It is
charged that the weapon with which
Jenkins is said to have done the shoot
ing was afterward thrown into a small
lake near Millview.

poultry list, only four strains are men

be entered, and all will have equal
chances for premiums. Also turkeys
and ducks may be entered, and will
come under the same head.
In live stock, instead of the entry.
four sows and .boar make a herd, it

Mr. Hardy is very anxious to have

YAXKS TOO IMPETUOUS
FRENCH SOLDIER SAYS
(N. E. A. Special)
Paris, Nov. 10. When debate and
politics lag in the French Chamber of
Deputies the chief diversion is pass
ing complimentary comment on the
valorous deeds of the Yanks. One
deputy, returned from a visit to the
front, said he asked a French soldier
who had seen four years fighting what
he thought of the Americans. The
poilu, he told the deputies, answered :
"Ah, , monsieur, they are marvelous!
But they are not careful enough. Be
hind each one of them is needed an
old fighter who at the right moment
will catch hold of their shoulders and
say: 'Not so quickly, my friend, not so
quickly'!' '
