GUINN & JOHNSON, Science Hill, Ky. With your concealed torpedoes, Which came rushing on unseen From some hidden submarine, 'Neath th' surface of th' Bea To blow up humanity, Then "Uncle Sam" gave a shout, "Cut th' cruel submarine out," That the entire world could hear, An he made the world rejoice With his earnest, hopeful voice; For th' world, so full of grief, Looked for "Sam to give relief. But you heard not, O, Kaiser! Or, hearing, thought it wiser To ignore his warning cry And cause millions more to die, Without warning, premature, To appease your lust for gore: Drench the earth with human blood An' precipitate a flood Of righteous indignation From all who love this nation, Which all who love freedom do, An' will take no bluff from you, Which in time, Bill, you'll find out, When you go th' Czar Nick route. "Uncle Sam" is very strong An' it does not take him long When a bully wants to fight, Ev'ry one there is in sight, And a Brother pleads for help, Fearing you will get his scalp, To step in an' take his part With no vengeance in his heart; With no other thought in mind Save th' welfare of mankind; An' to save those yet unborn From your future wrath an' scorn, With a sad an' solemn face Promptly warned you in this case That your actions he'd resent. Warned you through our President. "Do not strike," he did insist, "Helpless Man, with your mailed fist" "Do not, 'Bill,' wantonly ram The fine ships of "Uncle Sam," With your monsters of th' deep Which, like thieves, in silence creep On their victims, from behind. Do not, Kaiser, strike mankind, Having plunged the world in gloom, Don't continue man to doom To cold an' watery graves Or to battle with th' waves." Or words, "Bill," to this effect, That his rights you must respect, An' rights of other nations Or with you he'd lose patience. An' yet, without compassion, In autocratic fashion, All his warnings, scorn an' shun, An' sink commerce by th' ton: Drench th' earth with blood of man An' cause all the pain you can; With poison gas, shot an' shell Try to' make of earth a hell; Without mercy, deaf to pleas, On th' land an' on th' seas, Plunge th' helpless ev'rywhere In an abyss of despair. You cause sorrow an' distress, You clog th' wheels of progress; Civilization you retard. Rights of others disregard; Nations great an' nations small, You would rule or ruin them all; Rid of th' Czar's brutal yoke, Russia's freedom you would choke, An' with your blood-dripping lance Pierce th' aching heart of France; An' make light, in a manner Of "Th' Star-Spangled Banner," Which has set th' hearts afire, Of mankind, with a desire, To prevent that fatal hour That'd give to you all power To make day as blacR as night, An' make justice bow to might. Thus it is that "Uncle Sam" Seems a lion, not a lamb. Fearing not autocracy, But loving democracy; An' determined to defend "Grand Old Glory" to th' end, That, when his work completed, An' your cruel plans defeated, All mankind, your subjects, too, Will love "Th Red, White and Blue." "Th Stars an' Stripes Forever" Make ties you cannot sever, Ties of friendship, stronger'n steel Destined, "Bill," your doom to seal. So "Th' Stars an' Stripes," our flag! Must not tarry, will not lag, But make haste to proudly wave O'er th' land you would enslave, That humanity may see Lasting peace an' Liberty. "To Hell With The Kaiser" "To Hell With the Kaiser," the great seven-act Screen Classics, Inc., patriotic production, will be screened at the Princess and Gem theaters on Saturday afternoon and night, Sept. 28th. "To Hell With the Kaiser"; is the most vital of all the pictures dealing with the world war. It strips bare the , vile soul of Wjlhelm of Hohen gollern, and show the plot by which he and his Potsdam gang hoped to get possession not only of Europe, but of America. "To Hell With the Kaiser" shows the final destination of this mad monarch, as well as re lating his cruel deeds on earth. A great cast has been chosen to interpret this magnificent picture, which has been directed by George Irving from the scenario by June Mathis, and photographed by George K. Hollister, a war-photographer and former war correspondent. George Irving also directed the Metro fea ture patriotic screen drama, "Her Boy." Lawrence Grant plays the Kaiser, Olive Tell, a beautiful star of both stage and screen, plays the leading feminine part of Alice Mon roe. Betty Howe does a wonderful bit of work as her sister, Ruth, who meets a tragic fate in a Belgian con vent at the hands of the Crown Prince. Frank Currier plays Prof. Monroe, and John Sunderland, him self an aviator, plays Winslow Dodge, who is seen in spectacular airplane flights which have a strong bearing on the story.' "To Hell With the Kaiser" has some of the most unusual features ever seen in a photodrama. The closing scenes contain a genuine sur prise, combining beauty and force fulness, and the Kaiser is shown in those accursed regions to which his base record has destined him.

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 50 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 Sewine 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. AH kinds of Sewing Machines Thoroughly Repaired. My shop is now near Mohawk.
