A Massachusetts woman suggests that one way to con serve coal next winter is for the women to wear warmer clothing. And maybe she is right. , . . President Wilson has sent to the president of Switzer land a message of greetings an the occasion of the Swiss national holiday and to the president of Honduras a mes sage expressing the gratification of the people of the United States that Honduras has -joined the war against Germany "to fight for the freedom -of mankind." George Ehret, the New York brewer, whose property recently was taken, over by the, government because , of his residence in Germany since the .United States entered the war, is now reported to be in Denmark. He is re turning to America to seek the return of his estate, which the government estimates is valued at $40,000,000. Trench warfafe is interfering with picturesqueness. General Pershing has. decided against the cowboy hat for the soldier, and over there' our boys are wearing brim less caps. The reason is that the hat. brim interferes with , sighting through the periscopes. Well,' we hope the boys will 'save their hats and wear them through Berlin and then home. Berlin says i that r the German army has fallen back "after fulfilling its task," and has done so without the knowledge .the allies. , There once was a little dog which, when it was kicked out of the house, would run down the road barking as though it had intended running out to bark at something. ,, But, really, the fellow who kicked him. out knew all about it We appreciate all support given this newspaper. Es pecially are we grateful to the few local advertisers who have oatronized the Daily Sun the first five months. If we have anything good to offef at any time, these gen tlemen will come first on our list We don't say it boast- ingly,- but -there are not many newspaper ventures that would have had nerve enough to continue in the face of the small amountof support we have received locally What little success we have achieved has been made pos sible by the patronage, of advertisers outside of Greene ville, and the hearty support and encouragement received from , our country friends. The semi-annual report of the chief of ther division of sanitation yesterday to the surgeon-general of the army 6hows that, despite the severe epidemics of pneumonia, measles and, meningitis in January, February and March, the health of the troops in the United has been very good. The annuaMeath rata- per .thousand for disease, for this period was -8.08.-r On n average 45 men out of every 1,000 were carried on sick report, although a great many of. these were not confined -to the hospitals.. These in eluded rail leases -of social -diseases, , the greatest single cause of disability in the army. In the majority of these cases thft disease was contracted before the patient en tered the Army. , We regret that the very cheap rate we have had in force on the Daily Sun for the past five months has wor ried our weekly contemporaries. We admit that it is ex ceedingly hard to realize $1.50 a year for a weekly news oaoer while your competitor continues to publish a daily for only fifty cents more on the year.! However,, if we feel that we can afftffd to do this, who should worry? Our sole -object in making this exceptionally low yearly rate ott th-Dally Sun the past five months has been to get our subscription list built up to a point where we could command foreign advertising. Having . done this, now we have placed the subscription price at $3 by mail, to -everyone- , Even with, this little advance, people gen erallv wUl take it in preference to paying $1.50 for a newscauer published only ONCE a week and does not pretend to publish war news or other general news until t u i, mnr than a week old. The first five months WUVU V " - - have naturally been the hardest with' us, as is alwayi lie case in establishing a newspaper, no matter how often it is published.. Now that we have gone over the hill with our aubscriction lit our next move will be to give our people a larger , and . better daily newspaper. If local advertisers cannot see the advantage -to be gamely using the columns of the Daily Sun, then -we are in a position now to go after and secure sufficient foreign fsdvertising t? insure success, THE TWO KINDS OF WAR. The month of July, 1918, will be forever memorable because of the demonstration that the allied powers had reached the point where they could take any blows which the enemy might deliver and return them with such stag gering effect as to drive him back toward his own fron tiers. Considering the accumulation of German forces and the imperious need on the emperor's part for a vic tory, it was a wonderful triumph when the allies turned the enemy -offensive into a retreat If the victory has not been overwhelming,- it i& because the allies have not yet - reached th degree - of strength: which ? Germany reached when it began the offensive in March.- But now that the allied superiority is becoming more patent daily, there.need.be uo'fear-lhab the victoryof July will be offset by . a German victory. German .-superiority over the allies on the "western field of battle has become a thing of the past i This fact, however, does not mean that the war is brought to point where the. termination can be fore seen;: i This s? is the most uncertain , of all wars, and all wars are uncertain. The hostilities are not confined to one or five fronts; they are universal in extent and mani fold in method. Germany may be "winning in one place while losing in another, and the allies may lose battles and yet "win the waT. ; The two great battle .fronts are in the west and in Russia. One is a clean-cut struggle f of armed forces, where political factors are subordinated to brute force. The other is a complicated situation, in which brute force is "subordinate to political, strategy,- The-allies have ?ained the uppers hand in the exercise f of brute force, but it cannot be truthfully said that they have been the equals; of Germany in the exercise of political strategy is a war weapon. If they had been equals, they .would not have stood by impotently while .Germany disinte grated their great ally in the east They would not now be wasting precious time negotiating details among them- ?elves while Germany is preparing to maie' the conquest of Russia permanent ' The allies agree ithat it is not a colossal army that is leeded to reclaim Russia. It is another agency entirely; omething more impalpable than bullets and requiring a 'ugher degree of fckill than the turning of a machine gun crank.? If the allies had ;it to do over again, would they insist ipon concentrating all their mental and physical power m the western front while Germany .was-disabling Rus dat Would they not make earnest endeavors to organize i political war council, or its equivalent, and command t to evolve a plan for preventing the collapse of Russia? The danger-of over-concentration upon the western front 's as great now as it was when Germany was left unhin- lered in the work of amputating the left arm of the allies. The allies should beware of political feints and false operations in the field, designed to keep them absorbed on the western front .... Germany's salvation now depends upon success in Russia. The German conspirators know Lhis. They are in a position to apply political and mili tary strategems to the situation, for the purpose of gain ing time in which to execute their plans in Russia. If the allies permit this summer to pass without hav ing undertaken to execute definite and well-prepared plans to save Russia, they. must expect to see the war pro- 'onged and the difficulty of defeating Germany increased by at least 50 pen cent . If Germany is permitted-to utilize Russian resources, whic hshe will surely 'do unless checked in Russia itself, the United States must be prepared to face the necessity of maintaining millions of men in Europe indefinitely, with - prospects of (victory -not as "Unclouded as they mould . be. The . allies are doing nobly in the domain of brute force. But what are they doing in the domain of political strategy I Can theyr point to any great ally torn away from their enemy by skillful political strategy? - Or can they even point to a great ally of their own, recovered and rehabilitated after -having? been -stricken by 'the -enemy? Washington Pest WELL, THINGS HAVE CHANGED. Awhile age we were finding excuses for the allies giv :ng back; before .the Huns, saying that any commander of great forces could make .headway if he had the troops to hurl en masse against his foe's weak points, and we were rejoicing over the fact that the Germans hadn't reached either Paris or the channel. But down in our 'learts we .were sore because the Germans, at every drive, nade hadway and held-the ground they took. On March 21 they started and before they paused they had swept through thirty-five miles of France; then, after a breaki ng spell they swept on thirty miles farther, and we were Prepared for another advance when: again, they started i drive. But this time they were unable to advance and low they aregiving up the ground they gained formerly, ind they are giving it up at tremendous cost The Ger naiw high r command claims that they are giving it up Villingly, but they do not explain how tt Is that they are 'eaving behind vast quantities of munitions of war in their hurry to get out Thngs Jhave changed and we have faith to believe that wfr are. seeing, the beginning of the only possible end. : That end will not be reached for uany months perhaps- years,, but from now on . we be- 'ieve it -will be for the Hoa to explain why his forces ire giving back and cannot recover lost ground.

When I hear some folks complainin' 'Bout th' burdens they must bar Just to keep our soldiers fightin' In th' trenches "over there," Then I want to show a picture, One I saw th' other day, Of a little Belgian young'un An' her granny, old an' gray. In each face wuz fears an' terror, Born of Teuton greed an' lust, An' I pledged my all to Freedom, If to give my all I must Then a new song woke wtlhin me, A refrain I can't forget; "We'll all go broke if we haf t'- But there's none of us busted yet!" None of us is facin' hunger, None need fear to seek his bed Lest a demon in a Gotha Hurl a bomb from overhead. Here we go along a-singin', Only now an' then we sigh. An' we never see a soldier 'Cept; our own a-marchinby. Folks, we'd ought to be so grateful To each fightin' Yankee boy , That th' sacrifice of givin' Should be measured as a joy. So let's do our part full-hearted! Smile an' say without regret, 'We'll all go broke if we haf t' But there's none of us busted yet!" William Herschell, in the Indian apolis News.

Waddle, is justly indebted to the plaintiff, and is a non-resident of the state, so that the ordinary process of law cannotjbe served on her, and an original attachment having been levied on her property and returned to me, it is therefore ordered that publication be made in the Greene ville Sun, a newspaper published in the town of Greeneville, Tenn., for four consecutive weeks, commanding the said Mrs. J.

Yours truly, (Name) (Address) ...... ,, ,lllt i M ... U : If you have followed a business for 50 years and don't understand It, would it not be good sense to quit it and go at something that you can learn? This is true of even plowing. I have been in the Sewing Machine business for 60 years, have sold and repaired almost all kinds. Surely I ought to know,a good machine, and I DO . I can, and will sell you just as good a Sewing Machine as is made for much less than you can buy such a machine for anywhere else. Why not save money? You haven't it to throw away I don't suppose. Why pay peddlers $20 to $30 for bringing a machine to you, when you can save that by coming after it or having it shipped to your nearest depot This is no joke; come, and see and be convinced, or send for Illustrated Price Lists. Shuttles and parts for all machines. All kinds of Sewing Machines Thoroughly Repaired. My shop Is now near Mohawk, Tenn. Any ma chines sent to me to repair should bs lent to Mohawk, prepaid.
