Prompt nnd timely attention to this roiptoBt will stive all parties a great doaljof annoyance. LETTER TO THE EDITOR: 1 hope you will allow me a little space in your paper to of? fer some suggestions in regard to our returning soldiers, as I feel that wo owe them a debt of gratitude we will never he able to pay, but we ought to show them some appreciation in some appropriate manner as best we can. So I suggest thai Lee, Scott and Wise counties join in a general celebration in honor of all their returning soldiers, July I, 1910. This day was made a national holiday on the signature of the Declaration o( our Independence, and I think this day is the most appropriate til this time as our soldiers have not only retained our freedom, and independence, hut has practically buried Autocracy, and freedom and liberty set upon earth. Our brave hoys have so nobly defended the stars and stripes lllld brought honor to us all that 1 cannot lind words sutli cient to express my gratitude. (,>ttr Mag has never been torn down in malice by any nation on earth, and the way our American boys display them? selves, by the help of Q6d, no nation will ever pull il down, so we can feel safe when our boys are at the front in our de? fense. By the Ith of July next the boys will all be hack among us and I think we all can well af? ford to celebrate in honor of them und leave ofE- all other en? tertainments, We could have the soldiers come in uniform and have some good speakers to address the boys, and 1 think we could get some American dags, and per baps some captured German cannon and guns and perhaps some Hying machines and have a sham battle in tin- air. 1 only mentioned Loo, Scott und Wise as participants, but if there are other counties thut would like to join us we would meet and greet them with out stretched arms. .So 1 suggest thai wo have our celebration at Hig Stone Gap on the day above mention? ed. 1 would like to hear from all the counties in regard to this suggestion and if it meets with their approval I would ask all to put their shoulders to the wheel and let us have the greatest feat that was ever pulled off in Southwest Virgin ia. Thanking you in advance for the publication of this,!, remain. Truly yours, W. S. COLDIRON, Olinger, Va., Nov. 39, 1?1S. Tho Post fully endorses the suggestions made by Mr. Cold iron, nnd believe that this would bo an excellent way of showing our appreciation of tho boys, the majority of whom will doubtless have returned home by July 4th, and giving them a genuine homecoming welcome. Let us hear from others on tho eubjuct. Killed in Action. " ? Mr. und MVb.
