ENGLAND IN THE WAR A great deal of sarcasm has been In dulged in ut the expense of England, because the colonies have rallied to her support and because Canadian and Australian troops in Flanders and in the Dardanelles have seemingly borne the brunt of the fighting. Concede that England has allowed her colonies to do most of her fighting a propo sition that is easily refuted it is greatly to the credit of the mother country that the colonies are so loyal that they fire willing to sacrifice their j-oung me.i for the common good. The colonies might declare their indepen dence, and gain it. No one would be careless enough with the facts to assert that the Brit ish government has not made mis- tak. . we can think of quite a few off- har-1 but on the other hand no one wo ;M be l-o careless as to claim that the i ;r.;vli-h have not been a blessing to lunrinity. Wherever the English flag has gone, there have followed good government, religious freedom human liberty and protection to life and property. This accounts for the loyalty of the Canadians, the Austral- ian- the South Africans who twelve r; ago were fighting for indepen ye dence and for- the West Indians, who have formed a regimental unit for service at the front, as related in an Associated Press dispatch yesterdav. General Bernhardi in his book, "Ger many and the Next War," expected England to use only her fleet. He did not .'roam that Kitchener or anybody tlsv! v.-ould organize huge armies, nor did tlio French leaders expect more than an expeditionary force. Britain simply did not possess an army, in the continental sense, and how could any thing be expected of her ? Well, Eng land hurled ,the home army into France and it bore a part of the drive towards Paris. The Germans were smazed at the stubborness of this small band, which was more than de cimated during the first few weeks, and which is now practically anni hilated. England swept the seas at the outbreak of the war, sent a small force to the continent, and has since organized armies believed to number between 2,000,000 and 3,000,000 men. It iJ. not recorded that the British ever turned loose once a hold was seized. The American colonies were given up dimply because the French were making it more interesting for them in Europe. It was one of- the isolated cases in all history in which ihe British bull dog lost his hold. The Germans may overwhelm the Russian armies in the region of Vilna, may even place Russia horse de com bat, and eliminate the colossus from the' accounting, but there is not the slightest prospect that hostilities will be over soon. The French and English tire holding a long line in France and Belgium, and more resources are be ing thrown into the field. The best Germany can hope to get out of the war is a draw and, despite tremendous successions in Russia, has yet to crush France, which is more power ful, despite the smaller numbers, than the Russian bear. The British ministry has contended with a great many adverse conditions unprepardness, lack of men and strikes but it has gone steadily ahead lanning for a long fight. Great Brit fin has been very much in the war, but :he part that government will play in future will be even greater. T': :5 ineeed is a secret war. The sto; oT the last German raid over Lon.lon Las just been told for the first time, and it discloses damage un dreamed of by persons remote from the place of action. It was rather surprising that the Zeppeline seemed unable to deliver effective blows, and if the public could read an uncensor ed report of their other activities, there probably would be yet more surprise. Great is wireless! Only one life was lost on the steamer Athenia, which was abandoned in the ocean becauso of fire. If it had not been foi Mar coni or some other genius, the pasn kers aad crew would have been lost in all probability and the world would rever havo known their fate. As it is, a vessel must sink hurriedly to carry her passengers with her to the bottom. was NOT A JOKE. The Record has heard of seventeen punctures near Wesley's chapel camp meeting grounds as the result of plac ing tacks on the main highways, but there probably were more. The fel lows who scattered the tacks along the roads no doubt imagined they were having some fun we should hate to think they were placed wixn m but it was the sort of -fun that is not rplished bv anybody. The good peo ple living in that community felt out raged even as much as the owners of automobiles, because tney a stigma on the community. The Rec- . 1 . 1 . l-.il IT ord is not given to lectuiing, it were, it would be inclined to deliver itself forcefully in the hope that the miscreants would see it. There are too many automobiles in Catawba and neighboring counties owned both by townspeople and farmers for a thing like that of Sunday to be re peated. It is to be hoped that the community will keep a close lookout in the future. About the most accommodating in dividuals in the city of Hickory, where everybody is accommodating, rre Postmaster Aiken and Assistant Postmaster Hefner. They are prompt too, and expedite business in a manner that is winning them friends. The service of the Hickory postoffice is unusually good. The Columbia State is agitating a creamery for Columbia, and if the business men of that city and the far mers of Richland county are wise, they will not need much urging. The Ca tawba County Creamery is a big in stitution, and it has been a blessing to this section in many ways. It was Kitchener, we believe, who remarked the other day that Germans had shot their last bolt. But wasn't it a strong bolt! SPEAKING OF THE Record H Varntr s juevier.

Mr. Stephenson tells oi the curosity in the shop to see the new daily and of the satisfaction of all the "boys" in it. Mr. Varner's letter follows: "I have just had a look at' a copy of your paper of the 17th. It is a great credit to Hickory, or, for that matter, to a town double the size of Hickory. "To be frank with you, I never thought that you could get sufficient support in a town of that size to make an afternoon paper like that you have started to publish go, but your advertising columns look good, and show that you have a very pro gressive citizenship. I most sincerely hope, for your sake and for the sake of Hickory, that your paper will be a success. "The citizenship, of Hickory has al ways been progressive. They have great faith in their town, and I trust that they will stand by you as one mna, as they should do, in your efforts to give them an exceptionally good af ternoon paper that is worthy of a town of twenty-five thousand popu lation. "Your people could not do a better advertising stunt for the town and the community than to support the Hick ory Daily Record and make it a howl ing success." Guilty of That, Too. Columbia State. The first issue of Sam Farabee's Hickory Daily Record looks good to us, but then you can't keep an ex-Columbia boy from making a success of anything he tackles. From Mr. Stephenson. "The Hickory Record is a bean! "We never saw your first issue, but when, today, number 2 came all three departments editorial, business, and mechanical made a rush for it likt a pack of hungry dogs for a bone. 1 had seen it first, and therefore had a little start on the other guys; so I got first crack at it." Especially Creditable. Wilmington Star. The Hickory Daily Record is a new candidate for popular favor in the field of North Carolina journalism. It is edited by Mr. S. H. Farabee, until lecently editor of the Raleigh Times and a few years ago editor of the Winston-Salem Journal. Mr. Farabee is, a young newspaper man of sterling character, much and varied experience in the newspaper game,an alert and thorough-going news gatherer and fa cile and versatile writer. The first few numbers of the Record, which is an afternoon paper carrying the As sociated Press telegraphic service, have been especially creditable to the thrifty, enterprising and growing town of Hickory and the progressive people of Catawba and adjacent coun ties. Mr. Farabee and his associates and the people of Hickory are to be congratulated. The Star wishes for the new paper nothing better than the measure of success its editor deserves. Wood for Bread. Though sawdust and ground bark have been used in bread making in times of necessity, the actual food value of wood has not been determin ed. A new German investigation by Prof. Haberlandt has shown that the living wood the sapwood, twigs and branches, and not the heartwood of the trunk contains large quantities of suear. starch and oil. with snmo albumen. The soft woods have much oil, the hard woods much starch. The woods of most promise as food seem to be maple, poplar, elm, birch and lin den pine and spruce being too resin ous, and oak and willow having too much tannin. To ensure separation of the food material from the great quantity of indigestible matter, very fine grinding is necessary. It is hardly probable that wood can very material ly increase the food supply, but it can be used in small amount with other flour, and is a possible fodder for farm animals. War Plays Fail. Boston Transcript. A year ago on either side of the footlights the wiseacres of the thea tre propheside a flood of war plays. For aught tne ouxsiue won the flood may have been burst upon n.. j i, -e Viq mnnncrers and their readers of plays; but, if it did, very little of it has rolled beyond then pigeonholes upon the actual stage. There, equally in Europe and in Amer ica, the few war pieces produced have been cooly received and, with a rare exception or two, have quickly failed. The longest lived of such pieces m the English-speaking theatre will vanish from Boston tomorrow after two weeks of slender audiences. Another, American-made and and stringing to gether real and imaginary anecootes of the trenches, is hanging fire in New York. Scarcely a play about the war, however graphic, has long kept a place on the lionuon sLage, neither Paris nor Berlin has inclined to such pieces. What are called "patriotic plays" have fared better with France and German audiences, but almost invariably they have been dramas that recalled some glorious struggle or figure of the national past oi that heated with new fires of rhetoric, picture or memory, the en kindled spirit of national devotion and resistance. In turn the "reviews in the European music-halls have not lacked "patriotic episodes." Whether they were song, scene or spectacle, whether they mocked the enemy or acclaimed those that had gone out to meet him, the spectators have shown no lively appetite for them. Other turns have pleased them more. The probability is that these war plays and "war episodes" were no bet ter and no worse invented and writ ten than is ordinary journeyman work for the theatre. In all likelihood, they were acted according to the average histrionic standard of the stages upon which they were seen. To be topical and timely, even in such routine and ready-made fashion, passes for a de sirable virtue in the theatre. Theoreti cally, too, audiences should flock to see in living speech and action upon the stage that which engrosses them in the record of the printed page. Yet the public has been uninterested m war in the theatre, alike in the Europe that is fighting and in the America that is watching. As some say who would explain this mood m Europe, the anecodatage of the theatre seems out of the key with the stress that the warring peoples are enduring. As others have it, the play-houses and es pecially the music halls have stupidly cheapened and vulgarized nearly all that they would glorify. A few sug gest that war plays, to hold audiences intent, must be written by abler hands than have yet attempted them and with deeper insight to human passion and pain in war time than may now be possible. A simpler and readier ex planation seems the natural desire of the public to escape in the theatre by night from that which has pre occupied it by day. Americans do not lack their fill of "war news" and m Europe a considerable part of au diences are soldiers on leave. The Proposed Loan. Wilmington Dispatch. hp the ris-hteous pro test against making the Anglo-French half billion, the luau vj. m. - one just registered by Senator J . Ham Lewis is one oi them, it is not strange ,,ftor0i-!in(l whv Tieonle who do not favor the allies and whose money may be concerned can logically protesx against use of their money in making such a loan, but the reason advanced by Senator Lewis is that it would take fully half the available American money to cover such a loan. Evidently the senator fails to grasp the understanding that this money would not leave the country, but would be spent in the United States. The actual transfer of money would be nil. So it is hardly worth discussing it from that standpoint. The question narrows down to whether Great Brit ain and France should be given credit the same as if they purchased meat from the packers, war material from munition plants and the like, and the purchases were charged. The only difference is that by negotiating the loan longer credit could be obtained than otherwise would be possible and the credit would be practical in that a focus would be obtained. If differ ent, American sellers could not afford to wait for their money and it would be impracticable to open hundreds of accounts and keep them open. It is not so much a question of loaning money, but whether a charge account should be opened with Great Britain and France; will it be to our advantage to sell American goods that way, or can they be sold to better ad vantage and where? Mr nnl lateral is e-iven to sustain the credit account, but bonds are issued, j which, besides stipulating the terms ; of tho prm tract, e-ive a lien on the hon- ; V1J. W1V j O - or of a nation. That is all there is to the actual transaction. There is much personal feeling in volved, of course, as made up of whether a helping hand should be ex tended to the allies, but the only bus iness point is whether American goods could be sold to better advantage than t. to Great Britain and France. The government will hardly have7 ,,j-l-vi-. 4- A iv itt-tV V or cirlia ri? -fine j question, as it is not the government's j money that is uivoiveu, tne actual money is not to be sent out of the country and the government is1 not guaranteeing to compel the flag to fol low the loan. TO WALTZ AGAIN. Philadelphia Dancing Teachers Art Authority for Statement. New York Tribune. The old-fashioned dance is coming back into its own, say members of the Philadelphia Dancing Masters' asso ciation, according to the Philadel phia Ledger. The tutors of smart dances are soon to hold their semi monthly conference in Atlantic City. It is probable the association will go on record in revising dance styles for the winter. The change is for the benefit of the beginner. No more will would-be dancers have to become students of gymnastics in order to dance the latest dances. The old-fashioned but popu lar two-step and waltz, for several seasons wallflowers of the terpsicho rean art, are coming back if the danc ing masters succeed in overruling de votees of the "canterwalk" "hesita tion," "maxime" and others. Preliminary bulletins of the asso ciation on the revision show that the standard dance of the winter will be a combination of the one-step and the two-step, with a few frills added to the waltz. The "hesitation" will be en couraged if the pupil is apt, but bann ed if clumsy. The dancing masters have hffn holding their meetings at seashore re sorts this summer in order to learn at first hand the favorites of the Hang ing public. HICKORY DAILY RECORD The South by Comparison. , Wilmington Star. Comparison, according to adage, is i- i oicn ? husmess. More- 1 (llOUS. JJU.li iv Oicv i- over, the odiousness of comparison appl es only to the party which t the comparison shows in the less if avor able light. In the case of a cpmpari auie v, with rich New son witn tne virus - T . England, it is good business. , sometimes well for us to have our measure taken so we may know our stature, and we so have to compare ourselves with others that we may be able to know who is who. In this instance, manufacturing ev land has been picked our for compar ison with the south. The Southern Newspaper Publish ers' association has done it, and therein the south gets a great boost. t . j.- nowsnarters com- LieauiiiK suumciii i.v..-r-r- , pose the association and they have advertised in the northern publications the desirability of the south for ad vertisers seeking business where they are most likely to get it. Printers Ink, a New York publication, carries the ad. of the Southern Newspaper Publishers' association and it is tott unique and startling. The wealth of New England is known everywhere, and, therefore, the advertising world is invited to a comparison of the south with New England, so it may be known that New England comes un der the wire at a considerable dis tance behind the south. Advertisers of the United States have their attention called to the tact .li.j. 4-t i, ia c hrnad and tallow I tnat tne wuui it w - -field in which to advertise for bus iness. The ad. in Printers in em nhasizes the fact that "whatever the commodity, the 30,000,000 of people of the south have the desire to buy it, and what is more important, the money." ... , Thereupon follow statistics from the United States bank report of June 24, 1915, showing that while demand deposits in New England footed up $484,854,630.90, those of the south amounted to $586,155,168.68 more than $101,000,000 in excess of those in New England. -In New England, time deposits amounting to ' 851,25 as against $149,486,705.82 m the south more than twice those oi New England. Emphasis also is laid on the fact that of the 12 Federal reserve banks in the entire United States three were allotted to the south, thus showing that in financial stan ding it ranks as one-fourth of the United States. Upon this showing, the advertise ment in Printers' Ink impresses on ad vertisers the fact that appeal to this vast field of wealth in the south lies through southern newspapers. They constitute a medium embracing a com bined circulation of 2,554,627, at $6.21 per line on a 10,000-line basis for ad vertising. Tf Maw TTWlnnrl is a Efood adver tising field, what is the south, pray, when the comparison shows what a great and promising field it is for business and manufacturing firms wb:, de.-iro to extend their interests it ri. va:t r ;g'on invivng and attrac tive for exploration ? The south is a great banking, bus iness, manufacturing and agricultural region. It is the great cotton, tobac co7 peanut and general crop region, unlimited in productive resources, nnd yet of its own cotton production the south's cotton milling industry is so vast that it consumes more cot ton than all the mills of the north and Canada. Even at that the south is just on the threshold of her destined pre miership. Good field for advertising ? We should say so! In fact, here in the south are the greatest opportu nities for capital and industries and homeseekers looking for the , chance of their lives. DAMAGE CASE CAMPROMISED Mr. D. L. Russell went to Gastonia yesterday, where he expected to ap pear in Gaston superior court in a damage suit, but Judge Webb was detained in Charlotte and the Gas ton term will not open until tomorrow. Mr. Russell was interested in the case of W. A. Stafford against the High Shoals Manufacturing Company, this being an action for damages alleged to have been sustained by Miss Dollie Stafford, a minor, in 1909, when her hand was injured. The suit was not instituted until a few months ago, and has been compromised. 1 Bowles Furniture Co. Have What The Home of BUSINESS DIRECTORY 1 saasnuuumniiiiiiMiimmtm ittxtttti Dr. Chas. L.
