after iny sickness Is purely a matter of nourishment, whether the attack was an ordinary cold or severe illness; the -weakened forces cannot repulse disease perms, and this is why a relapse is so often fatal or why chronic weakness often iollows sickness. Restoring strength to millions of people for forty years has proven the real need for taking Scott's Emulsion after any sickness; nothing equals it nothing compares with it. Its pure, medicinal nourishment, free from alcohol or opiates, promptly creates rich blood, strengthens the nerves and lungs to avert tuberculosis. Corinne Brasneld Wheeler. Once again, and in His infinite wis dom, He Las seen fit to gather unto Himself one of the best and purest of our members in the death of our dear sister and co-worker, Mrs. Corinne Bras field Wheeler. She was born July 4, 1894. Died July 10, 1914, about 8 o'clock p. m. She was united in mar riage to Mr. Frank Wheeler January 4, 1914. Death has taken from earth one who was ever faithful in the discharge ol her duties jn all branches of church work. She joined the Christian Church at Mount Hermon when a small child and lived a beautiful Christian life until tLo cad. We believe when she met th King of Glory she feared no evil, for she leaned on His everlasting arm, and be piloted her safelyito the shore of the beautiful beyond where sorrows and good-byes are unknown. As we look out upon the receding sun we think how typical is the going out of this precious, sweet girl's life gone to shine in another world, yet casting back its golden rays of a shining influence. She was conscious until the end came and there was never witnessed a grander display of simple trusting faith than that exhibited by her, in the trying time of her translation. She, who had walked so close to her Saviour in life, was not forsaken by Him as she "walked through the valley of the shadow of death," and however dark the shadows, and however bitter the cup of sorrow may be, it is mollified by the remembrance of her noble life, her unwavering faith in the hour of death and her triumphant entrance in the rest that remains for the people of God. The beautiful and impressive cere mony was conducted at Mount Hermon church by Elder J. E. Stuart, of Union City, Tenn., after, which the remains were conveyed to the Hickman Ceme tery where a large concourse of sorrow ing friends and relatives had met to pay the last sad tribute to a good woman gone. , For the sorrowing, heart broken bus- band, father, mother, brother and sisters ur prayers go up in tender sympathy, and may they ever remember that "earth has no sorrows that Heaven can not heal.

With England and France command ing the main news sources it will be decidedly unwise to take what they issue without critical examination or to suppose that they are not conceal ing matters of greater moment than they disclose. The communication is sued Saturday from Paris wore an air of refreshing candor. The plain ob ject was declared to be to hold the French people patient and steady dur ing a period of eight days during hich no decisive news was to be expected. During this time, it was given out, a battle between millions of men might be fought along the entire Franco-German, Franco-Luxemburg and Belgian front, extending from Maastricht in Holland to Basel in Switzerland, a dis tance of about 266 miles or 400 kilo meters. The intimation was that there would be almost simultaneous attacks by both parties and that partial sue cesses were to be expected for the arms of each; that the line would be extend ed in other words both into Germauy and the territory of the allies. As result of the ensuing concentrations one side or the other would be in a po sition to hurl a superior column against a vulnerable part of the .enemy's lines to break them in two and to form plans for the second stage of the war. It is possible that the concentration of troops has proceeded to a point wber( such apparent candor and straightfor wardness is possible without disclosing 'any information that the enemy does not already possess. It is also possible that the communication is designed more for German than for French con sumption and that, instead of an en gagement along the whole front the FrAnnh arn nrenarinsr an overpowering - force to operate at a single point. A battle line of 266 miles, long as it seem, is a logical development of war with all the available forces of great nations. The Kuss-Japanese war, with far smaller numbers, developed battle lines of 90 to 110 miles toward the end of the struggle In a sense the present war has brought out a little larger conception. Lord Curzon taught England to con ceive of the Indian empire as a mon strnim fortress with fortifications and extended glacis beyond the surround ing high mountains of the north. The war against Germany and Aus tria ia assuming the character of a siege of those two countries. ak They are surrounded by the Adriatic, North and Baltic seas and countries that are either hostile or neutral. The outer seas are closed to their naval squadrons. On land there are indications of con certed action by Kussia, Servia and the western allies. It is possible that the latter have deferred and will still further defer a general attack until Russia will be able to swarm over the German and Austrian frontiers. Germany has a complete and Austria a fair system of strategic railways which enable them to throw troops from one frontier to another. Jt would be to the advantage of the western allies to be as sured that Germany and Austria are completely occupied ic the east at the same time that the battle rages in the west. The London-Paris information that Germany has all its first line reg ular forces concentrated in the west and only reservists mobilized to protect the RussoGerman frontier may afford the clue to the delay in the beginning of operations on a large scale. It is pos sible that they are waiting for word from Russia. The situation in the west, at the time the French have set for the beginning of the great 266 mile long battle, has been thus summarized in the dispatches from England, Belgium and France: The Germans continue to threaten Brussels and Antwerp from the direction of Liege and Maastricht and appear to hold a line approaching Dinant, on the Meuse, twenty miles south of Namur; ipproaching if not including Huy on the Meuse, between Liege and Namur; and extending northward at least to Hasselt, twenty miles west of Maastricht. The Germans seem to control the great er part of Belgian Luxemburg, a rug ged and not very fertile country, and the whoi$ of the Grand Duchy of Luxem burg. From Esch iu the latter country they have possessed themselves, it seems, of the strong and supposedly fortified position of Longwy, in France. South of this place the French seem to have taken the initiative and to have pos sessed themselves of several gateways into Germany. They have maintained their first gain, the road from Belfort into Unner Alsace, which the French say they control as far as Thann and a line from that city southeastward to the environs of Muhlhausen. One of the most important French successes seems to have been the occupa tion of Saales, an important pass and railhead, commanding a river and a rail-j way hading to Strassburg. The latest French bulletins claim possession of Schirmeck ten miles further northeast ward on this line. Saales is near the most eastern projection of the French frontier. Another place against which the French are said to have been operating with success is Markirch. The French line at this point reaches St. Croix and threatens Scblestadt- on the main road from Colmar to Strassburg. The French'plans thus seem to be to go around Metz, the nearest of the great German fortresses, to the French front ier, and to embrace concerted actions between the army in Upper Alsace and an army to be thrown across the line at points between Strassburg and Colmar. The fortresses of Colmar and Neu Breisacbf in Upper Alsace would be passed and neutralized, if not besieged. If the French should then gain the from Luneville - Avricourt t Rixingen, they would have Strassburg also between two armies. ' In short, if the French bulletins are correct," we can only suppose that their plans embrace a systematic reduction of Alsace while holding the Germans in check in Lorraine and in the north. If their communication is really as candid as it seems, they may even anticipate successes of German arms in the region about Metz and Longwy. The French have, however, also penetrated Lor raine by the Seille river, operating from Nancy. The line at this point extends five miles inland to Marsal. Knoxville Sentinel. . The City Schools.

This five-reel film by the World Film Co. was shown at the Francis Airdome Monday night. It is one of the finest achievements in the moving-picture line. The entire company is constituted of the best acting talent, and the title part of Protea, an adventuress, is taken by one of the most versatile and accomplished actresses. The Eel is no less an artist. It is a matter of intrigue and the spy ing of Protea and her accomplice, the Eel, to get a copy of thetreaty rela tions between Slavonia and another na tion, ana the way these people get through with their many character dis guises is seemidgly marvelous, while the scenic and mechanical equipment are ingenious and wonderful. Protea and the Eel are not only actors but acro bats and steeple chasers and most dar ing of all the venturesome picture peo ple. It is a great production. Martin Man Takes Drug.
