The Greeneville Daily Sun, Tuesday, July 30, 1918. "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)' July 29. 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 starved out, because of the added harvest their conquest of Russia en tailed and the 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 same 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 jrenius has been turning out sci entific monsters of destruction, our wizards of chemistry have been de veloping equally startling discoveries of fife conservation. "Today we possess a marvelous product, which ranks as the greatest single achievement in the annals of modern chemistry one five-grain tablet of 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 man flesh is very tasty. Naturally, Government Sends An Urgent Call The President of the Civil Service Commission recently wired: "Need for stenographers and typ ist at Washington grows more acute daily. Increase effort all possible." The Government and business con cerns are short five hundred thousand bookkeepers and stenographers, and are offering beginners salaries never before heard of. The Government drafted our civil service bookkeeping set, and about EIGHTY-FIVE per cent of the Gov ernment's stenographers write the Shorthand system that we teach THE BEST evidence that our courses are THE BEST. , Take, BY MAIL, our eight weeks' Civil Service-Mercantile-Bookkeeping Course or our Simplified Shorthand Course, the latter course consisting of THIRTY LESSONS, and we guar antee you from $85 to $125 a month as soon as you qualify.

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. The only known product in this country similar to tjiat 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 "tired feeling" and run down condi tio nso prevalent at this season it remains the only natural, nor-corros-ive, fully assimilable and digestible iron known t6 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 s,ale by all progressive druggists in the .

There is a more serious stage of Catarrh than the annoyance caused by the stopped-up air passages,- and the hawking and spitting and other distasteful features. The real danger comes from. the tendency of the disease to continue its course downward until the lungs become affected, and then dreaded consumption is on your path. Your own experience has taught you that the disease cannot be cured ll s In an4Kinf,Ntw and MtdUal Author mm.

THACKER'S CARD I regret to say that while it has been impossible for me to canvass the County in my behalf for Register, owing to the .fact that I have no one who understands the work in my ab sence, as many of you know, and of course the office must be kept open. The stamp act, relating to deeds and other instruments demands close at tention, and I am held responsible should anything go wrong. Yet I have seen many voters and expect to see more however, I ask the support and influence of all those whom 1 have not seen just the same, and as sure you it will be very much appre ciated by me. Of course many of you know me and know how I have conducted the office and the inter est I have taken in the work, giving it my personal attention, pointing out any errors which sometimes ex ist in acknowledgments to deeds and other instruments, before receiving same for record, giving the owners a chance to have these errors correct ed, as sometimes certain errors ren der these instruments fatally defec tive. Then seeing when spread of tecord they read exactly as the origi nal, and too, keeping the records where they belong, in this way, al ways trying to avoid any question and possibility of future litigation for all. When this war is over, the breatest conflict the world has ever known, there will probably be more searching of records than usual, to find out who under certain conditions is the right ful owners of different property, from the fact that there will perhaps be some of our noble boys who may nev er return, which thought we all de plore. Yet we all hope that it will be possible for each one to get back home safe, who has gone, and are now so gallantly fighting; and the same can be truthfully said of ttnse who are yet to go and help fight the battles for maintenance of Lilcrty, Peace, and for their homes, and our homes, and to protect the American Flag, always keeping it floating in the gentle breeze, the staff of which is planted on the possessions of the United States of America, in many places, upon whose domains it is said the sun never ceases to shine. In conclusion, I wish to say that I am aware of the fact, that; as an of ficial I have gained the admiration of many warm personal and influential friends, regardless ot politice, of which I am justly proud, and that when on August 1st you cast your ballot, I ask each and all to give me vour support. If elected, I promise to give to all the same courteou treatment in the future as in the past. Having had the experience I have, not only qualifies me to give as good ser vice, but enables me in a great mea sure to give perhaps better service, which I promise if possible.

It is Usually brought on by eating too rapidly or two much, or of food not suited to your digestive organs. If you will eat slowly, masticate your food thoroughly, eat but little meat and none at all for supper, you will more than likely avoid the sour stom ach without taking any medicine whatever.
