NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS. The U. S. War Industries Board has issued an order forbidding publishers continuing subscriptions after date of expiration, unless subscriptions are renewed and paid for.

These subscriptions will now have to be discontinued under the new law. If you want the paper continued to you, send in your renewal subscription before your time expires. If Bill Hohenzollern is not clear gone, he is now busily reading "Kings That Made Good Get-aways." The mobs, before the reichstag howling for a republic think they are demanding a new kind of sausage. If a republican congress is elected on next Tuesday, the president will have no on,e to blame but himself. The, new passenger trains go on next Sunday. This will give Greeneville four trains each way every day in the week. Greeneville business men can increase their business to fen extent that will be surprising to them by using the columns of The Daily Sun. ' Everyone Is interested in an item of local news. If you know of any local happening that is not generally known, communicate the fact to this office. It's all right, we suppose, for you to use the columns of The Daily Sun in giving publicity each day to the . , work connected with the different patriotic drives, but it does seem funny. to have the same folks pay for a card of thanks in the weekly papers after the daily has donated its space ( in making the drive successful. If you will watch the columns of The Daily Sun closely you Can tell just what Greeneville merchants want your holiday business. Ours advice to you would be to steer clear of the merchant that is too stingy to spend a little money-with his local newspaper. He will "sting" you every time he gets a chance. v There is no reason why Greeneville merchants should (not enjoy the biggestholiday trade in the history of the town. The time has come, however, when people expect you to let them know what you have to offer. They trade with merchants that appreciate, their business suf ficient to ask for it through the columns of their local newspapers. GIRLS AS STATE PROPERTY. Girls of eighteen must register publicly in , certain bolshevik Russian districts and must register themselves as "state property at a,government bureau of free love." That statement is made in a dispatch sent out by the British wireless service. It shows the rottenest spotin the so-called "Russian republic," or international scheme, or whatever the bolshevik persons call themselves. Russia might recoVer from her horrible murders, con demnation of education, treachery to the alliesselling out to German autocracy in secret. " But Russia and the bolsheviki won't survive such rot tenness of mind as is displayed in that telegram about the girls of eighteen. It means that vicious immorality is the moving force in the human gutter-sweepings that temporarily Nrule Russia. Lack q respect for women is a disease that no govern ment will survive. It has made the Turks and other Asiatic nations what they are. Man has become partly civilized by his mother, and through his respect for his mother; The bolsheviki ver min that talk of liberty and register girls as public prop erty, disregarding in advance the mothers of the future, putting the Russian social system below that of the Af rican bushman, tell all that anybody needs to know about the future of Russia. There will be found among these young girls thus reg istered by force, and among young men who have been taught to respect women, plenty of energy to take care of the bolshevik leaders that do not know the difference e between a Russian girl and a Holstein heifer. The ludicrous Russian rule that "permits any girl to select any man she chooses between the ages of nineteen and fifty as her partner, with or without his consent," adds the finishing touch to bolshevik insanity. Wash ington Times. A FINISH FiGHT INEVITABLE. As the defeat of the enemy draws near it is high time that the allied governments should vmeet in close con ference to agree upon the terms of peace to be imposed upon Germany, Austria-Hungary, Bulgaria and Turkey. Although President Wilson has refrained from commit ting the administration to the proposition that the United States is an ally of the other governments fighting Ger many, he has made it clear that the United States gov ernment will take part in the allied conferences. Col. E. M. House is now In Paris, and it is expected that he will represent the President in the conferences that are to begm tomorrow at Versailles. The enemy governments are endeavoring to find a way to extricate their armies from positions which threaten to bring about complete defeat. Their diplomatic de partments are framing proposals which they hope will be accepted by the allied governments. The junta that controls Germany is rushing bills through the reichstag which pretend to make profound alterations in the im perial constitution, all in the direction of "democracy. Since the reichstag has no power to alter the imperial Constitution, these bills have--no more value than 'any promises or treaties made by Germany. They are mere scraps of paper intended to fool the allies. The enemy governments are doing their best to find in President Wilson's notes to Germany and Austria- Hungary some loophole for further correspondence ,and - . i ; ? . one Deginning 01 peace negotiations. uerman news papers, taking orders from the military autocrats, refrain from attacking President Wilson. They pretend to find in his note some vague opening for negotiation. In the meantime the military leaders are straining every nerve to get the army into a safe position where it can have some hope of making a stand against the invasion that is surely coming. ' There is intense curiosity at Berlin and Vienna regard- ing the terms which will be proposed by Marshal Eoch to cover an armistice, if the allied supreme war council should decide that an armistice is expedient. It goes without saying that any terms proposed by Marshal Foch will be adopted by the allied war council. The terms will necessarily tie the hands of the enemy and transfer the control of evacuation everywhere to the allies, under con ditions which would make it impossible for Germany or its allies to deceive or interfere with the allies' repre sentatiyes. The simplest and safest method of effecting this would hi the disarming of the enemy forces where they stand, and their transport under allied guard to their own country. But this is surrender of such a far-reach ing character that Germany will certainly balk at it while she has an army intact. One great question hitherto little discussed is bound to' come to the front When tne enemy begins to sift out the tolerable fr,om the intolerable in the allies' terms, as he views them. It is the question of Poland. Ger masy can give up alkterritory that she has invaded, but she will not find it possible to make trading material of the Polish parts of East and West Prussia, Posen and Silesia. These eastern parts are deemed by Germans to be part of the very body of the fatherland, and there is no profit in shutting one's eyes to the fact that Ger many will fight to preserve those territories as long as she has any fight left. Yet one of the peace terms laid down by President Wilson calls for an independent Poland comprising within its boundaries the veritable Polish regions, and having an independent outlet to the sea. The allies will surely insist upon this point, both for the sake of Poland and for the sake of future peace in Eu rope. A free Poland isa necessity of a safe world. A finish fight, therefore, is the unavoidable method of ending the war, armistice or no armistice. If Ger many, with jntent to play false, accepts an armistice which ties her hands and disarms her troops as a prelim inary to wresting the Polish provinces from her, she will do so momentarily only as a strategem, and the fighting will be renewed as soon as her duplicity is revealed. Bet ter straightforward fighting: now, while the enemy is on the run, than a false armistice which might yield some advantage to the enemy. Marshal Foch and the supreme war council see this point, of course, and there" is Tib danger that they will be maneuvered or driven into any relaxation of the strangle hold which they have fastened V upon the enemy's throat. Washington Post. Conference Goes To Johnson City h Yes, there are any number of Greeneville citizens who still take the Knoxville paperssn preference to their little home Daily. But they don't hesitate to bring around all the FREE advertising they can get their hands on in order to help to fill up and they are usually most per sistent in their requests that it all appear on our first page with big headlines. . - If you have the least doubt about the circulation of The Daily Sun throughout the county, ask every man that comes into your store what Greeneville newspaper hi takes now, and if nine out of ten of them don't tell you they take The Daily Sun, we will make" no charge for any advertisement you may, run. The latest invention to hang in the family dining room is the gum board. It is a neat little circular board, plain or decorated, fastened to the wall. The name of each member of the family is painted on the circumference, and marks the spot where the gum is left until wanted. This savescarrying the gum to the bed and getting it in one's hair or swallowing it in the night It is obvious that the gum board supplies a long felt want and he who invented the new fad will have the best wishes of the young ladies. . The Holston conference of the M. E. church, South, wh'ch was to have c." Tvered in Knoxv"ilftnn ci.w in Knoxville Wednesday, October 30th, will be held in Johnson City, because Knoxville's epidemic of influenza shows no signs of "letting up" suffi cient for public meeting to be re sumed by the date set for tie con ference. Johnson City, where the -confer-ence was first scheduled to meet, had to give it up because of the1 severity of its influenzaepidemlc, and Knox ville was chosen for a meeting place for the postponed session. Johnson City, which is now sufficiently recov ered from the epidemic to resume public meetings, on learning that the epidemic in Knoxville is still serious, asked Sunday that the session of con ference be held here.

The improvements consist of a hardwood floor throughout, ref rescoing of the walls and ceiling, installation of new lights and repainting of the outside front: The ungainly stairways lead ing to the balcony have been removed from the vestibule and a comfortable settee placed at each end of it. The church is now a thing of beauty, a credit to the congregation and an ornament to the town. The regular meetings for worship will be resumed, and from now on there will be services on Sunday nights. The evening discourses will not be regular sermons, but sermon- lectures in which the pastor will dis cuss the great problems of the hour. Arrangements have been made for the best music possible at all the ser vices. The regular quarterly communion will be celebrated on November 10th at the morning hour. The full pro gram will be published later. Germans beared Reckoning Day WITH THE BRITISH ARMY IN BELGIUM, Oct. 25. Anlnspection of numerous German posters in Bel gium discloses that wherever the death penalty for offenses of -civil ians was exacted no signature was attached. It is, therefore, concluded that no German commander was will ing to take an individual responsibil ity for such orders possibly fearing consequences in the future. This was especially the case of Bruges. In addition to the visible evidence it was testified to by M Echevin, one of the aldrrman, who attnded the execution of Captain Fryatt, the master of the British steamer Brussels, as the representa tive of the city. The alderman said Capt. Fryatt bravely looked straight at his firing squad. An hour after his execution, an order that he be hot shot arrived from Germany. The al derman said that between 15,000 am 20,000 marks monthly were collected from citizens of Bruges as fines. Food conditions, during the Ger man occupation, M. Echevin Contin ued, were" not bad because the dis trict is an agricultural one. There was no looting in the city before the Germans left. But there was no use for any looting, for everything de sired by the Germans previously had been requisitioned, even pianos, pic tures and frying pans. The last com pany leaving the town destroyed ev erything the men could reach. They even went down the streets breaking windows with their rifle butts. Feared Outbreaks. 0n October according to the al derman, the Germans apparently feared outbreaks, for, orders were posted all overtime town inviting the people to remain quiet, adding that the imalest demonstrations would be dealt with by artillery fire. All res idents were ordered Jto remain in doors from 6 o'clock at night until 8 o'clock in the morning. Those found in the streets between these times who were without authorization would be fired upon, the order added. An order issued about the same time provided the death penolty for even the possession of a telephone instru ment in homes. During the entira period W occupation no newspaper but German organs and the Nieuwe Rotterdam Courant were permitted to be sold. t The people of the city we're re quired to move all signs in the French language and to change the names of streets to German or Flemish. It is alleged that Admiral Schroeder whipped children Whose dogs barked at him. Two girls were imprisoned for eight months and given only mil dewed bread and course beans. They were accused of writing a letter to their brother. While in prison they were told that their brother had been arrested and would be shot. But la ter they learned he had been released after two months. Before the- Germans evacuated Bruges they issued circulars calling orf all men between the ages of 16 and 45 years to appear at the, office of ythe commandent. ported.. Only 240 re- STOP! CALOMEL IS QUICKSILVER It's Mercury 1 .Attacks the Bones, Salivates and Makes You Sick. There's no reason why a person should taks sickening, salivating cal- tfmel when a few cents buys a large bottle of Dodson's Liver Tone a perfect substitute for calomel. It is a pleasant, vegetable liquid which will start yaur liver just as surely as calomel, but it doesn't make you sick and can not salivate. Children and grown folks can talte Dodson's Liver Tone, because it is perfectly harmless. Calomel is a dangerous drug. It is mercury and attacks tne Dones. Take a dose of nasty calomel today and you will feel weak, sick and nau seated tomorrow. Don't lose a day's work. Take a spoonful of Dodson's Liver Tone instead and you will wake up ,feeling great. No more bilious ness, constipation, sluggishness, headache, coated tongue or , sour stomach. Your druggist says that if you don't find Dodson's Liver Tone acts better than horrible calomel your money is waiting for you. Then German cries went about the streets, saying that those who failed to report would be severe ly dealt with. Six hundred addition al men answered the call and all were carted away from the city in trucks like cattle. Censorship Severe. ' . The censorship was severe, accord ing, ot the alderman. Even a book of sermons by Bassent, who lived in Calvin's time, was sent back to the publishers with the demand that cer tain passages be modified by the au thor. The. people of Bruges are espec ially bitter 'against some people1 in Holland who, they say, held up let ters smuggled across the border and made known the contents to the Ger mans who punished the writers. The Germans removed all brass from the city, even t the hatracks from the famous cafe Millecolmes. Prince Adelbert, son of Emperor Wil liam, frequently dined here. Adel bert, finding the place crowded with German officers at one time is re ported to have said to. his compan ions in English, "let's go to some oth er place; this is crawded with bodi es." The German officers had gay par lies in Bruges and at other places in Belgium, having as their guests hun dreds of girl typists and clerks who had come to Belgium to take the places of men combed out for the ar my. . . .
