"Germany Will Never While We Have Bundesrath Senator, in Cannibalistic Speech, Declares Eating of Prisoners Thoroughly Justifiable if Black Wolf of Starvation Faces Empire. Berne, Switzerland, (Delayed)' June 25.In one of the most barbaric speeches ever uttered in the high chambers of Bundesrath, Baron Wil helm von der Keilhofer, of Bavaria, with typical Teutonic cruelty, declar ed it was useless for the enemy to presuppose that Germany could be Btarved out, because of the added harvest their conquest of Russia en tailed and tha fact that the Father land already holds 1,000,000 Ameri can, French, . British and Belgian prisoners. He said in part: "Survival, of the fittest and self preservation has always been the pre dominent features of existence. Were Germany to face the black wolf of starvation, it would be our sheer and bounden duty to our brave soldiers, wives and children, to slaughter such prisoners as God may have granted us in the Bame manner as we would any other swine, and thus releive the hunger of our noble race. I might take you back through the history of 'the ages and show you how, when forced to this" point of extremity, all nations have subsided on the carcas ses of their prisoners. "Fortunately, however, Germany will never be forced to such an ex tremity; for God, in his righteous an ger, has smitten the enemy and given Russia with her thousands upon thousands of grain fields unto us in our hour of need, and while our mili tary genius has been turning out sci entific monsters of destruction, our wizards of chemistry have been de veloping equally startling discoveries of life conservation. . "Today we possess a marvelous product, which ranks as the greatest single achievement in the annals of modern chemistry one five-grain tablet or which, when added to the ordinary vegetarian meal, serves as a full equavalent to a half-pound of the best porterhouse steak or to one and one half pounds of sausage. There fore, Germany need , never resort to the necessity . of the admittedly un pleasant thought of eating her prison ers; although it is well known that hu CEDAR LANE Our Sunday school is doing nicely. , The wheat harvest is about over in this section. Wheat is fairly good We were the happy recipients of a much needed ruin last Friday. - A wedding of much interest was solemnized in the Baptist church, at Van Hill, Hawkins County, Wednes day night, when Miss Nancy McLain became the bride of Mr. O. E. Jones, Mr. Hugh McLain acting as best man end Miss Sallie Dawson, of Jeralds town, as bride's maid. The cere mony was performed by Rev. Knowl ing, of Jeraldstown. The bride is the accomplished daughter of Mrs Renda McLain, of Van Hill, and the groom is the son of Landon Jones, who died at Johnson City some years ago, The groom leaves today (Mon day) for Camp Gordon, where he will receive military training. We wish for him a speedy return, and for them a long and prosperous life. ' Mr. Loyd Dawson and family were visitors at the home of Rev. .W. P. Knowling Saturday night and Sun day. Mr. J. F.

Naturally, this formula is a military secret, and great care will be taken to prevent any of this product falling into the enemy's hands, for fear they might possibly be able to analyze it and then reproduce it themselves." .' Just what this alleged marvelous product contains is of course still a mystery to the scientists of this coun try, although it is a well known fact that many of the organic sulphates, when taken in conjunction with other food, will greatly increase the blood, tissues and weight of the individual. It has long been a recognized fact that a purely organic, assimable and digestible iron would greatly enhance the general health of mankind, but the only known chemical irons ruined the teeth, upset the digestion, and were just about as absorbable in the human anatomy as a ten-cent piece would be. The4 only known product in this country similar to that described by Baron von der Keilhofer is Acid Iron Mineral, which, like the iron found in beef, mutton, celery, and a few other foodstuffs, is fully organic and digestible. Acid, Iron Mineral not only thins the blood, but strengthens and invig orates it. For those who suffer from the effects of thickened, heavy blood, coagulated and polluted with the waste matter of the winter's accu mulation, A-I-M stands without a peer; for it not only thins and purifies the blood, but carries' the various im purities out of the system naturally and effectively. As a general spring tonic and as a prompt relief for that "tirectteeling" and run down condi tio nso prevalent at this season it remains the only natural, rior-corros-ive, fully assimilable and digestible iron known to -medical science. Therefore, reject all spurious imi tations, which profit-seeking drug gists try to thrust upon you, and de mand the original Acid Iron Mine ral. Acid Iron Mineral is on sale by all progressive druggists in the United Statse, Canada and Great Britain. The Central Drug Co., wholesale dis tributors for Greeneville and vicinity. Adv.

Mrs." Flora Beles, of Knoxville, was here a few days visiting her father and mother, Mr. and Mrs. G. D. Har mon, also other friends and relatives. She returned Sunday afternoon. . Rev. Harr came up from Knoxville last week to his farm, and also re turned home after a short stay. There was preaching at Hopkins' Chapel Sunday, as we learn. Quite a number from a distance were here at church Sunday. Farm crops were damaged in the lowlands in some sections by the swol len streams of the late heavy rains, but the growing crops were greatly revived. Mrs. Martha White's grandson, John Roberts, was up from Knoxville tb see her recently. Uncle Sam conies after us again this week and the only way out is to come up with the goods. J. K.

G. & COMPANY Stores of Grain In Germany Only For Her Soldiers AMSTERDAM, June 24. Gen. Ludendorff's decision to lend to Aus tria 5,000 tons of grain out of the i food reserves of the Germany Army reveals significantly the fact that there are no grain reserves whatev er for the civilian population of Ger many. This action, coupled with the de mand for a speedy repayment of the loan, strengthens the recent admis sions by conservative members in the Prussian Parliament of the unsatis factory outlook of Germany's food supply. 614,000 Tons Sunk In May, Says Berlin AMSTERDAM, June 24. Ship tonnage sunk by German submarines in the month of May aggregated 614,000 gross tons, according to an official statement issued at Berlin. ; The claim also was made that in addition badly damaged ships with la tonnage of 56,000 were taken to ports of the Entente Allies in April besides the losses already announced for that month. Cabinet Members Sharply Divided On Prohibition Washington, June 25. (By United Press.) Cabinet members were sharply divided on the prohibition question at a hearing of the Senate Agricultural Committee today, with Secretary Daniels espousing and Postmaster General Burleson on the side of the "wets." "We cannot af ford to experiment with the nation's destiny," was the answer of Edward M. Hurley, chairman of the shipping board, to those" advocating war time prohibition. "There would be more risk in wartime prohibition' than in the counscription of labor," Hurely declared;1' ... 'i ' FOOD ADMINISTRATION - This Column will be eidted every day by C. W.

All new food regulations will be published the same day they come out- ' ' FARMERS' EXCHANGE MILLING REGULATIONS, 1918 WHEAT CROP To County Food Administrators: The following tlegram is this day received from Herbert Hoover, U. S. Food Administrator, Washington: ' "As to Farmers' wheat next year we wish to support the whole idea of farmers raising their own supply of flour. Unitil the National wheat sup ply is definitely determined and the allied necessities are likewise arrived at, we cannot lay down a National program. As a temporary basis we believe the folldwing is the best co ordination of all views in Southern States. Farmers may draw supply of flour from the milling exchange or exchange their own wheat for the three months to "October 1st. They should not draw this from mills in ex cess of 12 pounds of flour per person per month for use by their household and tenants, and they should continue in respect to substitute on the present basis until we change general substi tute program for the entire country." This simply means 1. Farmers, in exchange for 1918 wheat grown on land owned, leased or cultivated by them, may draw from mills a three months supply of flour to October 1st at the rate not to ex ceed twelve pounds per person per month for use by their households and tenants. , 2. All persons other than farmers as defined in paragraph 1, are limited to a thirty days supply of flour either by purchase of by exchange grinding at the rate of 12 pounds per person per month. 3. This does not release retailers, farmers or any other consumers from the gO-50 substitute regulation. 4. This does not effect bakers' sub stitute regulations. Yours vary truly, H. A. MORGAN. Catarrh is a Real Enemy and Requires Vigorous Treatment Do Not Neglect It. When you use medicated sprays, atomizers and douches for your Ca tarrh, you may succeed in unstopping the choked-up air passages for the time being, but this annoying condi tion returns, and you have to do the same thing over and over again. Catarrh has never yet been cured by these local applications. Have yo-j ever experienced any real benefit from such treatment? Drinkless Days May Be Instituted Here "Drinkless Days" may be the next innovation introduced to Greenevil lians by the food administration. This is being contemplated as a means of further sugar conservation. , , The sugar situation is described at Washington as being more critical than at any time this year. This ,is partly due to the fact that more thai) 20,000 tons, or 40,000,000 pounds of sugar was sunk off the Atlantic coast jn the recent -boat raid. The con dition was also aggravated by the acute shortage in this country at the time of the submarine activities. The drinkless day edict would re sult in soda fountains and soft drinks stands suspending the sale of all drings one day each week. Practi cally all of the so called soft drinks are composed largely of sugar or su gar solutions. This regulation is in effect in many other places and is recommended fy the national food administration as an effective means of saving large quantities of sugar.
