SUBSCRIBERS uro earnestly re?
quested to observe the date
pnntod on their address slips,
which will keep them nt all
times posted ns to the date
of the oxpirntion of their sub?
scription. Prompt nnd timely
attention to this roiptoBt will
stive all parties a great doaljof
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?
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?
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?
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
Thanking you in advance for
the publication of this,!, remain.
Truly yours,
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

-VIu l?v-Jng roroembruuoo of
our dear friend, aimer, and co
worker, Mrs. W. D. McNiol,
whose death occurred October
Little did we think that the
Angel of death was hovering so
near her, and that we were so
soon to loso sight of her dear
smiling face, which always
wore tho impress of her noble
and lovely character. Truly
death loves n shining mark. We
will greatly miss horfrom-our
social and religicus circles.
The whole community sulTors
the Iobb of one of its best friends,
her home tho tenderest, gent
lest, most loving mother. Her
place will bo hard lo fill by one
so kind and good. A pearl of
precious womanhood. Our sor?
row is deep, but not us those
without hope, feeling our loss is
lior gain. Her fnco is lost from
our vision, yet through faith we
look upward and behold her
glorified spirit basking in tho
sunlight of eternal bliss. .Earth
know no lovelier soul, Beavcu
contains no brighter gem.
Therefore, bo it resolved by
the Ladies' Aid Society anil the
Woman's Missionary Society of
Wise Hupiist church,
First:?That we bow rover
ently and submissively to the
mighty hand of Und while it
smites, believing that He, who
is too wise to err, too merciful
to be unkind, doelll all things
Second:?That we testify to
bur fuilhful leadership as presi?
dent of our Aid Society for sev?
eral years. Her loyalty and
ECnl will ho an incentive to our
future wotk. lior life U sweet
Third:?That in our future
meetings wo will miss her sun
uy smiles, her cheerful disposi?
tion, which sweetened the at?
mosphere around her as the
flowers make fragrant the air
about them. Her sun went
down while il was, yet day, but
the glory of the sunset will
long linger around her mem?
Fourth:?That a copy of !
these resolutions be placed on j
record, and a copy he sent to ,
Hig Stone Gap l'ost, Coalfield
Progress and Leo County Sun |
for publication, and a copy sent
to her bereaved husband and
children, as a token of our sin?
