LYON, Editor and Proprietor.,, Subscription Rattss .Daily Subscription- By carrier, 15c a week; 40c a month. By mail outside of Greeneville, 40c a month; 756 for 3 months; $1.50 for 6 months; $3.00 for the year. Any erroneous rejection upon the character, standing or - repuatiort of any person, firm or corporation which may appear in the columns of this paper will be glady cor rected if brought to the attention of the editor. Only one accident at the Depot and Irish street crossing to report today. Greeneville, like most all small towns, has a number of citizens who, are not as important as they appear to be. If you see the colored man with his Sunday clothes on today don't ask any questions this is the day he cele bratesi and he has a perfect right to do so. ' Youth and age have too little sympathy- with each other. If the young would remember that they may be ld, and the old remember that they have been young, the. world would be happier. If you have been selected by the chairman of the Red ' Cross- committee to fill an appointment - Sunday after ' noon, don't-shirk. Show a willingness to do your best f and that is all that can be expected of you. We are informed that the Sunday laws are to be strictly ,?enforced here at an early date. Just how far-reaching they will be, we cannot say, but we are informed that their enforcement will bring about a number of changes. The renewal membership drive Is now on by our Red Cross chapters. Have your dollars ready for the com mittee, and if there is a single member' of the family that has not joined, see that they are listed in this big drive. It was demonstrated again yesterday evening just what our fire truck can da for the city when it is needed. The truck made a record run yesterday evening, saving the property of one of our poor families, which if lost would ' have meant everything t6 ' them. - A couple "were recently married. The ceremony over, ' the wife began to weep copiously. "What'g the matter?" asked the new husband. "I never told you that I don't know how to cook," sobbed the bride. 'Don't fret," said he, "111 not have anything to cook; I'm an editor." " The poorest girls in the world are those not taught to work. "There are thousands of them. " Rich parents have petted them, and they have been taught to despise labor and to depend upon others for a living, and are perfectly helpless. The most forlorn women belong to this Class. It Is the duty of parents to protect their daughters from this deplorable condition. One 'of the most dangerous habits people can indulge in Is that of lying in. bed. " Nine-tenths o fall the deaths occur in bed. Nearly one-half of all those-who are mur dered are -murdered in bed.' It is while you are in bed that the house is robbed and all your chickens stolen. It is while you are in bed that the bugs bite you and bad dreams haunt you. . Therefore,; dear reader, never, go to .bed. Whe nthe country youth proposed to the city girl, he received the conventional assurance that, she- would be 'his sister. It happened that this youth had sisters at home Vnd knew exactly his privileges. So he kissed her. At this juncture she availed herself: of the sisterly right , to call out to her father that "brother" was teasing her. Father -responded in good, muscular earnest. Then the new "brother" and "sister" relation was dissolved by mutual consent. f Morristown and Newport are beginning to let the out t side world know about their county fairs next month. It -is to be hoped that Greene eounty may decide to organize her old county fair , again before another year rolls i around. Our people made one great mistake in allowing 1 the old fair property to pass into other hands. These annual gatherings are good for the community, te say nothing about the. benefits that are to be derived from , the spirited competition they bring about. Let's reor ganize the old county fair. " The Weekly Sun- now contains more reading matter . than ever before the publication of a daily newspaper enables us to give our weekly patrons about twice, as reradv choice ' reading matter, as-we-have been, able to 3rry for several years. Another feature- about - the Weekly Sun is the fact that you get the late war news tsp ta the day of publication." If you are satisfied or ton tent to allow the weekly paper to furnish you with the important happenings coming in now almost every hour of the day, then you should not overlook the Weekly . Sun only $1.50 a year; same price as all Greeneville weekly newspapers, .. "AFTER-THE-WAR FALLACIES." .The discussion of after-the-war problems by British and German "writers is of considerable interest to Ameri cans, although it is just as w,ell to iear in mind the im possibility of forecasting with any assurance the condi tion and surroundings of any nation after the war. Every nation is affected by the war.and it. does not know even now how deeply it is affected. Perhaps several years of peace - must elapse before? the nations twill know how and to what extent the war has affected their commercial or industrial life. ; It is notable that both German and ' British writers and speakers dwell upon what they deem to be the -car-dinal necessity 6f securing-an adequate 'supply of raw materials, not by treaty with nations controlling such materials, .but by actual ownership." "The German writers hold that the war will be insvain if Germany does not emerge from it with her flag flying over regions furnish ing essential raw materials, go that the empire will be self-contained and self-supporting. " Many V British pub licists seem to hold the same view with respect to the British empire. Is not this an unconscious admission by these indi viduals that they expect .? another warv and are anxious to be better prepared for it? If this war is to end by the defeat 'of German militarism and if peace is to be based upon the fundamental rule of government by consent of. the governed, backed by an agreement in which the nations constitute themselves a league to enforce -peace, why should any , nation concern itself with securing all the raw materials necessary for making successful- war? ' The question .answers' itself. It exposes the purblind reasoning of the foreign pub licists who are utterly unable to picture a state of affairs afte rthe war different from that which prevailed before the war. The tendency is to revert to an imaginary and obsolete status quo. "Would it not be better for all nations if the discussions of after-the-war conditions were suspended? Nothing can be settled now. Nothing can even be foreseen.. Every effort to restore ante-bellum - conditions is a-drag upon war efficiency. For n great part of the world it can be said most positively that -there ' cannot be a- returns to ante-bellum conditions. The world cannot turn back to 1914. Much has ' been ' learned which cannot be un. learned. One lesson taught by the war is that the na tions dare not risk their lives again; by neglecting to league together i for mutual protection. They must and will meet in council, 'No great nation' will be missing from the-council table; for its absence would be equiv alent to a notice that its hand was raised against all the others. Another-fact .taught by. this war Is that men can no longer be ruled by self-appointed autocrats. "Nations are emerging from the masses-of peoples-long held in op pression by rapacious dynasties. The war's great object now is to complete this process of liberation of nations. Assuming that the allied powers will be victorious, it must be assumed that there will not remain under the flag of any enemy , government any submerged nation. That is the first point in any peace treaty that will be written. ' Therefore; if i the nations are to league together for the preservation of their separate -identities, and if all nations are to be -enabled- to establish government upon consent of the governed, there is no necessity-whatever for gathering under one flag all "the materials for war. The league of nations, being strong enough to preserve the world's peace, will be strong : enough to procure a friendly interchange of raw materials among the nations. It is a fallacy to advocate national self-sufficiency in war materials, industrial materials, or transportation fa cilities. . Has not this war driven home the eternal truth that nations do not live; to themselves alone?-i-Washing- ton Post Mill Men Are Given Warning v Although the government, through the Cereal Division of the United States Food Administration, now al lows the mills to pay whatever they desire for wheat, the price of flour and mill feed being absolutely fixed, the Federal Food Administration in Tennessee is determined that the mills shall not by reason of this fact beat down the price of wheat and make unreasonable and excessive profits in the sale of their products. The following statement has been issued by the Federal Food Adminis tration of Tennessee: 'Under,the present plan of mill control, which has been in effect since July 1st, the mills are no longer re stricted in the price which they can pay for wheat or in the territory in which they may purchase it. They must, however, sell their flour and wheat mill feed at not exceeding ar bitrary prices that have been fixed by the Food Administration. These prices are based upon the guaranteed price of St. Louis wheat with the freight charges therefrom to the Tennessee mills added, less, of course the cost of inspection, the carrying charges and service performed in handling the wheat. The prices at which mills are permitted to sell their products, based on these wheat prices, will .return them a fair and reason able profit. More than that they are not entitled to receive, and will not i obtain if the Food Administration must call into service all of its pow ers to prevent it "It has come to the knowledge of the Food Administration that in cer tain sections some mills have used their advantage to 'beat down' the price of wheat; that is, they have not paid the fair wheat price established by the government, but on the other hand have sold their products at the full prices fixed by the Food Admin istration. This will not be toler ated. Such a course will return to the mills following it unfair and ex cessive profits'. We are now sending out to every wheat mill in the state questionnaire in which they are asked to state the price at which they have purchased No. 2 wheat since July 1, an dthe prices at which they have been selling flour and wheat mill feed. When these questionnaires are returned, the Food Administration wilh then know just what the mills have been doing and where we find mills that have made unfair profits, due to unreasonably low prices paid for wheat, they will be forced to dis gorge the excessive profits."

The alarm was turned in and the fire truck respond ed promptly, climbing the high hill in record-breaking time. Fortunate ly, the fire had been gotten under control by the time the engine ar rived on the scene, and but slight damage was done.

' The schools, the churches, the amusements, .the business, pleasures, the picnics, the celebrations in fact everything should be looked on by our own people as just as good as can be gotten up elsewhere, always succeed. .The town that says "we can" will " If there were no- women;-men would have- no object in life f their mustaches would cease to interest them; they would not care a Chinaman whether their, collars were ironed or not; they would have nobody to nurse them when they had the toothache, or to keep them from believing they were going to die when an old-fashioned stomach-ache had the grip upon them. '" There -would be nobody to take for ice eream and no small edition of flesh and blood to hug." There would be nobody to fight against being kissed and then take to it as natural as the cat does to cream. God intended that there should be tine day each week as an especial day for the culture of home ties. A- day when .the father would .be;, home, from . work,, and the children home fem school, and "the mother have less ef household care,-when all could put on their best clothes, sing their sweetest songs, and enjoy a day of love. " The Sabbath should never be made a day of labor in the home. The work of each home should be so arranged that it. can be done almost entirely in six. days and as evenly 'as possible in each day.
