The Allied armistice conference has been in session at Versailles, France, for a week, and may make its terms public at any time. Whatever the terms are Germany will probably agree to them. Until an armistice is' declared the fighting will continue in France. lailinilKS, ., ((Klr(gTr I 2v 1 1 1 ill vrfRflm ra What is more comfortable on a cold day than the even distribution of heat given by A GOOD NEW HEATER? t We have heaters that are suitable for every need.

Not quite 18 years old, Fowler Elrod, son of Mr. and Mrs. R. A. Elrod, volunteered his services from Murfreesboro in July, 1917, and was enlisted with hi3 brother Hubert, two years his sen ior. Into the 113th machine gun regi ment of the 30th division. For ten months he was stationed at Camp Severe, when he waa sent to France with his company and there placed Inschool where he was trained as an instructor. Although but a beardless boy, yet in his teens, Fowler heard the call of humanity and his enthus iasm and optimism won the admira tion of all who knew mm and inspir ed his fellow soldiers with patriotic love and a desire for action. To those who saw him leave home, the baby boy of a large and devoted fam ily, his death seems most untimely, but he knew and understood the sac rifice that might be demanded of him, and went gladly to lay down his life if necessary, writing his mother in his last message that though he might not see her again he would meet her in Heaven. Pt Is when we read of such lives and deaths as had thi3 boy that we realize more fully the hand of God In the world's war and feel that from the fiery furnace true gold Is being found. To die for one's country is glorious and we know thalt a heavenly glory awaits the khaki clad youth who has heard the cry of his fellow man and re sponded. If we push ajar the gates of Life, And step within and all God's work ing see We could understand this doubt and strife And for each mystery find a key. But not today. So be content, dear heart. God's plana like Ulle3 pure and white unfold. We must not tear the close shut leaves apart Time will reveal the chalices of gold. Fowler Elrod, who moved to Mur freeaboro from Cookeville with hi3 parents four years ago, was a broth er of Mrs. C. S. Jeskins, Mrs. James Shirley and C. N. Elrod of this city.
