S. R. Simpson, a verbal j howitzer from Paragould, who paint-1 ed a lurid picture of what this coun-1 try would look like if the Kaiser had ! carried out his dastard!> plans to | humble France and England and | then iH>unce on the United States while this nation was in a state of military unpreparedness. Mr. Simp son declared we would be bowing and scraping to German snobs with names as long as a clothes line and with morals as corrupt as the imps of perdition. Mr. Simpson came to Marianna upon invitation of the committee in charge of the Second Liberty Bond sale the purpose of the rally being t resB upon the people here the in ance of investing their money in the bond issue. The speaker de clared America had done nobly by the allies, that American money, food supplies and munitions hud carried the war during the past eight months, that American aid had put new cour age in the exhausted French soldiers, had strengthened their faltering spirits and planted a new hope in their hearts, and now that Pershing and his army are preparing for active participation in the big drive next spring, Mr. Simpson predicted there wouldn’t be anything but Teuton smoke in hades for the next hundred years. He made a powerful plea for the brave boys who are giving up busi ness opportunities, home comforts and all that is near and dear to them, to defend the flag and vindi cate the honor and uphold the tra ditions of this country, declaring no sacrifice upon the part of the people would be commensurate with the cor\rir*oa tho hnvc in (ha a rm tr orn rendering. He pictured the unpre cedented prosperity of this country, and especially in Lee county, stating he had been informed by represent ative citizens that the present cotton though short would yield approxi mately five million dollars, and that the total expense of making the crop would not exceed three million, concluding that out of the profit of two million dollars the people certain, ly ought to invest ten per cent, o: $200,000 in government bonds that bear four per cent interest. Throughout his vigorous and stir ring address Mr. Simpson was re peatedly applauded and when he had finished, upon suggestion of W. B. Mann, chairman of the Lee County Liberty Loan Committee, the audi ence gave a rising vote of thanks to Mr. Simpson. The allotment of bonds for Lee county is $165,000. So far more than one hundred thousand dollars has been subscribed. Those in charge of the campaign want Lee county people to take $200,000 worth of the bonds, and to that end committees will begin work within the next two or three days. -o—— Dr. W. H. Deaderick, formerly of this city, now of Hot Springs, was called to Marianna yesterday to see Jessamine Daggett, little daughter of Mr. and Mrs. J. B. Daggett, who is seriously ill.
