Sad Death of Little Girl A very sad death occurred about eight miles south of Greenevilie Sunday evening:. The little four-year-old daughter of Mr. and Mrs. John Devoti got hold of a box con taining stricnine tablets about 4 o'clock Sunday afternoon in some manner,' and had swallowed a num ber of them before the parents discovered the fact. Medical as sistance was called immediately and everything possible was done to relieve or save the little child's life, but death relieved it of its sufferings at 7 o'clock. Funeral services will be conducted this afternoon (Monday) at Cedar Hill, near the home of the parents. Patriotic Meeting Stieday Afteraeeo Citizens from all sections of the county were here Sunday after noon to attend the patriotic meet ing at the court house. The large court room was filled with people who had come for miles to give the young men a farewell recep tion. The principal . address of the afternoon was delivered by Capt. Trent. He spoke for ajmost one hour and his talk was greatly enjoyed. Music was furnished by a local (juartette. It is estimated that more than two thousand peo ple attended this farewell serviee. Greek Restaurant Changes Hands The Greek restaurant, on Depot street, has changed hands. The new proprietors are Messrs. T. C. Vann and Doud Kerbaugh. These gentlemen tell us that the cafe will be closed during the present week, while some improvements are being made. They are as yet undecided as to when it will be reopened or just what disposition they will make of the property. In this connection it will not be out of place to state that Greene vilie is in need of a first-class res taurant or cafe. Other towns smaller than Greenevilie support good restaurants, and there is no reason why Greenevilie should not. It is to be hoped that the ''Busy Bee" will be reopened at an early date and conflucted in first-class style, which we feel sure it will be if the present own ers decide to have the business continued. I AT THE PRINCESS 1 o o MONDAY Eddie Polo in "The Bulb, Eye," No. 2. TUESDAY Clara Kimball Young in "The House of Glass." WEDNESDAY Pauline Frederick in "Resurrection." WIiatHas IlarmonDcne? TO THE REPUBLICANS OF GREENE COUNTY I want to ask you, in answer to a letter Judge Harmon has written, and sent out broadcast to the republi cans of Greene county, what he has done for you, and for the republican party; and what the Hon. Sam R. Sells has done for the republican par xy? Now, Judge Harmon, be franl , and be honest with with your people your home people as you call them in your appeal for their support to save you from the inevitable , de feat now confronting you, and, in substance admitted in your letter. We will ask you, Judge Harmon, what have you done for the republi can party of this county, or for the State? You, according to your own admission, have been holding of fic i for the last twenty-four years. You have drawn' an amount of money equal to $60,000, for this service. You have never made a republican speech, nor have you contributed a dollar toward, the cause of the party in Greene county, except when yo have been a candidate yourself. You now in the last ditch of yvur present struggle for a continuation in office, are appealing to ths repub licans of the county, and saying, "you know me, and I feel that my own peo ple should stand by me; and I feel confident they will." Now be hon est, and be truthful with your people, as you call them, what have you done for "my people?" Who have you assisted in politics, and what have you really done for the republican party and its advancement? When the court house was full of demo crats, holding the most, if not all the offices in the county, what did you do and what were you doing at that time? Now, Mr. Harmon, you have not given a single reason in your let ter for asking the republican voters of this county for their support, oth er than that you want to go to Con gress and that they are "my peo ple." You have not been frank enough to say that the Hon. gam R. Sells was the father of the election laws which has made it possible to rehabilitate the court house with re publicans. While Mr. Sells was working in the interest of honert elections and ' Setter" government, what were you 'doing?1 And why are you now 'issuing 'your Saily letters and circulars ' vilifying and' abusing him and trying to make the' republi cans believe he has been a blank as a public official? "if you will be honest in whatyou say' in your let ter; if you will telf the people that Mr Sells has supported every move toward good government in" Tennes see during the past fifteen years. If you will tell the people that Mr. Sells has secured for the people of this district $225,000 in the building of roads; if you will tell the people of this district that Mr. Sells has se cured purchases, of land in connec tion with the forest Reserve more than $500,000; if you will tell the people of this district that Mr. Sails has secured since he has been in Con gress hundreds of pensions for the Civil war and Spanish-American war soldiers; and no better proof of this latter statement can be had than the statementof the soldiers and the wid ows themselves. Let them rise up in the twelve counties and speak for themselves. If you will tell the peo ple that Mr. Sells has had an appro priation for two public building sites, cne for Hawkins county and one for Carter county. If you will tell the people that Mr.Sells is a member of two important committees of the the House, that of Roads and Pen sions.being the ranking member. on the Committee of Pensions, and by reason of his position oh this commit tee, will become chairman of same when the republicans of the House get control again. And it may be well to add that this committee, for i long time in the future, will be one of the most important committees oi the House; as nearly every family In the country will be more or less af fected in the war, and from this com mittee all pension legislation will originate. As above stated, Mr. Sells, by rea son of his being the ranking republi can member of this committee, will become chairman of same a chair manship that has never been given a member from this district In conclusion, I will say that it is my honest judgment that Mr. Sella has made an excellent showing since he has represented this district, and by reason of his length of service and knowledge of Congressional work. and the fact that he is in perfect harmony with the present war move ment, it would be unwise to late him out of congress and place a new member in his stead. This is the greatest crisis in the history of all the world; a time when everyone should think before they act. Surely our boys and their lives are at stake. We are til touched alike; our boys are "over there;" they are fighting for all of us; tliey are fighting for those of us left be hind; they are fighting to make he world sane and safe to live in, and we must not fail to do our duty and back them up with our best judgment and experience. Let the war be over then we will have time to make changes. Let the old adage stand in this case: "never chaige horse in the middle of the streaam." AN OBSERVER. Germans Honor Young Roosevelt Dead American Aviator Bur ied by Them With Military Honors Near Ch&mbray. AMSTERDAM, July 21. The death of Quentin Roosevelt is con firmed by a Wolff Bureau message from the froat. according to a Ber lin despatch received here. Tht message adds that young Roose velt was buried with military hon ors by the Germans. The story of the fatal encounter as told by the Wolff bureau correspondent, follows: . ., ' t . "On Sunday, July 14. an Amer ican squadron of 12 battle planes was trying to break through the German defense over the Marne. In the violent combat which en sued with seven German machines, one American aviator stubbornly made repeated attacks. This cul minated in a duel between him and a German non-commissioned officer, who, after a short fight, succeeded in getting good aim at his brave but unexperienced op ponent, whose machine fell after a few shots near the village of Cham bray, ten kilometres north of the Marne. . "His pocket case showed him to be Lieutenant Quentin Roose velt, of the aviation section of the United States army. The person al belongings of the fallen man are being carefully kept wtih a view to sending them later to his relatives. The earthly remains of the brave young airmen were buried with military honors by German airmen near Chambrayat the spot where he fell." Greene County Institute Convened Here To-day The annual Institute for the teach ers of Greene county was called to order at 10 o'clock in the Auditorium by Supt. Joel N.

Ely, in an inspiring man ner, conducted ' devotional exercises which were helpful to all. Supt. Pierce thenvntroduced Prof. Coggins, of Johnson City, and the hands which greeted him attested the love and esteem of our teachers for this helpful co-worker. He announc ed "How to Think" cs the subject of his lecture, and the beautiful Ful ton's steamboat showed us that he was past-master' in teaching lother folks how to think, and will not be forgotten soon. He wai followed by our own Prof. B. H. Burkhart, in an able jajer con taining helpful hints for teachers, and preachers, as he discussed the coun try church. Enrollment followed showing 135, the largest number for the first day of any prior Institute, and the jros pects good for grand work. . The Daily Sun is now four months old. During the past three months we have carried less than half a dozen advertisements for local merchants. During the past month we have not had a single advertisement from a Greenevilie merchant. This is not verjj encouraging to us in our efforts to g-'.ve Greenevilie a permanent daily newspaper, and we trust that some of onr live merchants will begin real soon to realize what they are missing in not using the columns of the Daily Sun the one Greenevilie" newspaper that goes into all sections of the coun ty every day, and we dare say is more eagerly read than all other .Greene vilie newspapers, 1 iiiillis Daily For 75c. w&mm Special Offer Until Aug. 1. .
