The following delayed Associated Press Dispatch, appearing on the 20th. is interesting to Noi th and South Carolinians: .uu ncauqudi is in d ranee, ed the croix de guerre. They are the son aleradv nrs American onicers to be honored. Bothof th- officers viewed the last Frencn offensive at Verrun. Instead of remaining in the rear, both of the American officers took up their station in an advanced observation post where' they were under heavy shell fire. A shell fragment struck the helmet worn bv Brigadier General Duncan, but he was not hurt. The American is keep ing the head piece as a memento of the occasion.

This road cost about $40,000. The whole of this in vestment was swept away in the flood of July, 1916, but the public had been given a demonstration of the value o such a highway and . Dr. Morse -.was ncouraeed to rebuild it. This he did ) early in the spring ana he did not - stop there. .He.carriea oui ms u I sign and extended the road from its former terminus at the toot 01 nocit : tb the summit. It Is the most pictur ' esque road in the entine .country, and it is a revelation of which only a I smail part of the tourist travel is ! aware. From the foot of Chimney I Rock to the pinnacle or the rock, it self, thp road winds a distance of three miles, new vistas of wonderwul beau ty being opened at each turn. This is said in the guide books of all tourist routes but it applies with eloquent truth to the trip up Chimney Rock. S'inc the pinnacle has been made ac cessible by motor vehicle, the .tourisi talk in Asheville has been almost monopolized by the celebrated rock, I whose beauties the tourist pubile has hppti sn far content with by observa tion from afar. Ever since Dr. Morse j has completed the road to the top I hundreds of automobilists spin by the "forks" of the road heedless of what the side road leads to, and unaware that they are missing a trip that bj" next season will be the talk of the tourist world. The North Carolina pjublic has been content with the long distance view of Chimney Rock for so many jears that it had quit thinking of the Dossibilities of a trip to its summit, but the opening of this road way is going to make a big diversion in the old-time tourist routes next sea son. There is now established on the Charlotte-Ashevile Highway a stop ping place over which all visitors ar bringing the most enthusiastic ac counts. There is . so large a propor tion of the traveling public that has never had access to the Rock that the i opening of this highway will mean Sxeat things for that particular sec tion of North Carolina. New attrac tion is going to figure prominently ii the new guide books for the Appalach- to have new material for joth pen and brush, for Chiney Rock with all its hitherto unrevealed beau.ies, is open ed to the world. For this great ser vice Dr. Morse will have the thanks Dusmess and now he owns it entnrely. ' of the State, as he will some day have ur. Wilson is well pleased with the a monument.

Men of this type appear to treat lightly the outrages perpetrated upon civilization by the German autocracy in the de struction of American lives and com merce upon the high seas; the murder, rape, and arson which characterized the conduct of the German army fore ing its way through poor helDlesd Belgium; the continued destruction of life and liberty by German submarines after promise after promise had been made that the practice of sinkine American ships-carrying innocent wo men and helpless children would cease had been made; the placing of German spies in every section of this Country to undermine the safety of our people and create prejudice against the Gov ernment.

But n is suggested everywhere, and no one seems to fall for the suggestion, that if the women of the country would organize nationally, and pull off aoout thirty meatless days say, two a week for a few months that prices would go down. And it sees reason able. Pull off enough meatless days to stop the slaughter houses for a time. Insist that every loyal woman join the order and on certain days all over America have no meat to eat. The people could stand for it. and to stop the supply of meat in a nation like this for thirty days would mean that there would be an accumulation o2 live stock that would surprise every mathematician on earth.

But what difference about -the cost if conserva tion of food is the end sought? The money will not be wasted, but; certainly the meat would be saved.

Ruined in body and estate by her gigantic and tyranicaly yoke-fellwo, made to rub shoulders with the Turk and to help pull German chestnuts from a terribly hot fire, Austria may well come out of this miserable struggle hating Ger many almost as sincerely as does Bel- PRIVATE GILDEX LEAVES. 0f International Plot T?pinvorfora ff yVrsi.! - the American army, have been award- Private Robert Gilden. a member of the local coast artillery company sta tioned at Fort Caswell has left his command without leave.
