MISS MABEL MOORE, Greene County Demonstration Agt. THE CARNIVAL. As the citizens of Greeneville are aware, we have' in our midst again this week another carnival, carrying some several different attractions. Coming so soon after the Murphy shows, there is not quite so much in terest being manifested in these at tractions this week, v However the company here this week have appar ently a very creditable list of shows. They did not come claiming to be the "biggest on earth," therefore they are going after business in their us ual manner and no doubt will receive a very liberal patronage the closing days of the week. TOTAL SOLAR ECLIPSE On the afternoon of Saturday, June 8, 1918, the wonderful spectacle of a total solar eclipse will be visible weather permitting, over a track ex tending from the Pacific (Washing ton) to the Atlantic (Florida). This track of the moon's shadow is 70 miles wide at the western coast, nar rowing to 40 miles in Florida. ' For about an hour the moon will gradually . encroach upon the sun's disk, the daylight will fade, then the narrowing crescent of thesun will sud denly appear, and around the jet black ball of the moon, hanging in the northwestern sky among the brighter stars, will be seen the pearly radiance of the mysterious solar cor one. The remarkable spectacle may be enjoyed for 122 seconds at the western coast, and for half that time in Florida. Then the crescent of the sun will appear on the " other (wesfc ern) side of the moon, and after an other hour the full disk of the sun will shine as usual. This event happens attany one place, on the average, only tree times in a thousand years. TELL HIM HOW. If .with pleasure you are viewing any work a man is doing, If you like him or you love him, tell him now. Don't withhold your approbation till the person makes oration, And he lies with snowy lilies o'er his brow; , For, no matter how you shout it, he won't really care about it; He won't know how many tear drops you have shed. If you think some praise is due him, now's the time to slip it to him, For he cannot read the tombstone when he's dead. More than fame and more than mon ey, is the comment kind and sunny, And the hearty, warm approval of a friend. For it gives to life a savor, and it makes you stronger, braver, And it gives you heart and spirit to the end. $ If he yearns for praise bestow it if you like him, let him know it; Let the words of true encourag ment be said. Do not wait till life is over, and he's underneath the clover, Fore he cannot read his tombstone when he's dead, Anonymous.

The Dostors have shut little Marjorie Coz something's the matter that's , making her thin, And they say she must patiently stay in bed And be a good girl and just eat when she's fed. And she can't go out in the sunshine to pay Or race with the children for many a day. Now, her bed's by the window, an' what do you think? She's teaching the robins that come there, to wink I Ma cried when the doctoris said "keep her in bed." "How will we amuse her?" she fre quently said, "She's always been eager to romji an' to play, A regular torn boy, the neighbors wouldsay;- . ' - ' ". An' now she must lie all the time on her cot, An' never get out, coz her fever is hot." An' pa kissed her cheeks, an' patted her head An promised to get her some toys for her bed. Ma says she's the best little patient she knows, She never complains of her troubles an' woes, An' she's figured out games she. can play all alone, ' An' forget that she's sick. All the birds are her own, , She says, an' when breakfast an din nertime comes An' we take up her tray, she just tosses out crumbs . To the robins that live in the elm tree, out there, An' they're learnin' to wink an' to talk back to her. She's given them all names. There 4 is Bobbie an Jack, An' she talks to them all an' they chirp right back. An' last night she told me that one ,of them said v They like little girls who must stay up in bed, So they come just as much as they can to her sill An' sing all their songs, coz they know ahe is ill. An' there isn't a doubt, bo the doc tors all tell, That the birds will help Marjorie soon to get well. ' ... PISGAH I was reading the card of L. L. Neas, published in the Sun, a few days ago, and was no little surprised. I have known him quite a few years, and have never before heard of his loyalty and patriotism being im pugned. In this instance it is per haps the work of slackers or slickers. You remember the story of the rogue, being pursued, wa3 the loudest in cry ing "stop, thief!" It is to be regret ted that Mr. Neas dignified the mat ter by noticing it. - Farmers in this neighborhood are going over their corn the first time. They" are also making preparations for their tobacco crcp, quite an acre- the actual condition of said bank as V POWER DAM ,, The health of this community ia not very good at present. There are quite a number of cases of measles. Mr. Sam Humphreys and Marion Lowry dined with Allen Payne and family at Allen's Stand Saturday. We sure do enjoy reading the sol diers letters in the Sun, especially from those who are in the trenches. We have a brother "over there" and I would be glad to hear from there every day. We also have another brother who is still in the' United States, but don't know how long it will be until he is on his road to France, as he is expecting to go very soon. If it is God's will and he lives to get over there, I hope the first sne he sees will be George. It would be a happy meeting, indeed. Ml; Lee Moss, a soldier boy, is in on an eight days furlough, visiting his mother, Mary Moss, near Greene ville. Miss Laura Humphreys spent Sat urday night with Mr. and Mrs. Mar ion Holt. . ? Mr. William Cannon spent Satur day and Sunday with Mr. and Mrs. Banks. Misses Cecil and Vergie Cannon were calling on Miss Eliza Humph reys Friday. Mrs. W. E. Payne and Miss Eliza Humphreys have measles. Esq. M. F. Humphreys has pur chased a fine horse recently. Mr. John Seaton has been on th sick list for some time, but we are glad to know he is improving. Mr. C. L. Humphreys, who has been living in South Carolina, will move his family back in about three weeks. His old friends will be glad to welcome him. Miss Laura Humphreys attended the decoration at Cedar Hill Satur day afternoon. Wishing the Sun and its many read en much success. Tonsv. age of which will likely be put in; though I have heard some complaint that the plant beds are not up to the standard. I- note that in publishing my last communication, your compositor made me say that the "cold winter and east winds had played the mis chief with the wheat," which should have been fruit instead. Mr. Gray and Miss Lucy HartselL of near Rivera-Hill, were married Thursday evening, the 16th. The will leave for Detroit, their futum home, on Tuesday next, the 21st. Mrs. John Gray is still sick. If she takes on any strength at all it is very slowly. Many friends have vis ited her, and contdibuted to her com- port, and others have made solicitous inquiries by phone and otherwise. Mrs. B. II. Shepherd has been af flicted for quite a while with Roneo- la, but she was reported as some bet ter at last accounts. Since they are straining- every nerve to "win the war," why would it not be well to round up the idlers? We have at lat one young chap in the 24th District, who is said not to have performed a day's labor in at leant three years. If this le true, something might be found for him to do "over there."
