Although the interest of the entire country is tem porarily concentrated upon the political campaign, which has entered upon its last week with a display of partisan ship totally unexpected, it. must not be overlooked that the conduct of the war is, after all, the overshadowing issue before the American people. It matters little how the country happened to be aroused from its lethargy to engage in a political con test that has develcped a bitterness to be deplored at a time when the country is at war and the best energies of every citizen are demanded in the prosecution of that war. It is the natural result in a government where the people have the right to voice their views and take into account the stewardship of their public servants. And He Buys No Bonds Or War Stamps appear in the eolurans of this paper will be glady cor-when election day comes they may be counted upon to rected if brought to the attention of the editor. NOTICE TO SUBSCRIBERS. The U. S. War Industrie! Board hat issued an order forbidding publishers continuing subscriptions after date of expiration, unless subscriptions arc renewed and paid for. ' While it bat been the general rule of ibis newspaper lo stop all papers promptly, there are soma few who have asked for time on their subscriptions both to the Daily nd Weekly Sun. These subscriptions will bow 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. The Germans are afraid this is an armisticeless war. The war is nearly won, and now the allies must win peace. . v . Austria-Hungary's surrender offensive is becoming re lentless and ferocious. - American emigration to France continues at a high rate, every emigrant carrying a Hun silencer. Don't try to follow every fashion unless you wish to ruin your health, your good looks, and your pocketbooks. Wilson wants everybody to support him, and the re publicans insist that they will, so what is all the row about? The enemy's idea of a league of nations is one which embraces only the heads of leading dynasties, such as Hohenzollern, Hapsburg and Wurzburger Hofbrau. Why are some people all smiles when their visitors re about, and all frowns when all are gone but home folks? Why not have some smiles for the family? Would , that our busy toilers could tealize that they must enjoy passing days, if they would be happy. The pleasure to which they look forward seldom comes. The man or woman who has liot learned contentment and hoW to find delight in'the present, has little reason to ex pect it in the future. Every wife ought to know her husband's income, and that knowledge should be the guide of her domestic ex penses. Better is a dinner of herbs than a stalled ox with hatred therein. Where a wife makes up her mind to do her duty in-this respect she will brighten her little home and make it a place of perpetual sunshine. 's , All that the wife can do will not make the home an agreeable one. Neither can a wife be happy with a hus band who is addicted to finding fault with his bread and butter. She may try ever so hard to please him, yet when he sits down to meals, she lives in constant fear that some portion of the food will not suit his fastidious taste. Words of kindness do more good than hard speeches, as the sunbeams, without any noise will make a traveler cast off his coat, which all the blustering winds' could not do. If we are kind to .others, we not only benefit them, but the influence on them is great, and if we cultivate the grace of kindness our own characters grow nobler and better. . Don't wait until a man gets into trouble before lending him a helping hand; don't wait until he gets sick to ex tend him your sympathy; dont wait until he is dead to speak eulogy of him. Strive to make him happy as he walks down the pathway of life, then you will have done some good, but if you wait until he dies, your helping hand,' your sympathy and your eulogies will avail him nothing as he plunges into the Great Unknown. The young woman who keeps her hands white at the expense of her mother, who performs the household duties, is never likely to astonish people with her order and cleanliness when she gets a home of her own. Neither is the young man who depends on his father for the necessaries of life and the good clothes which he wears, apt to set a very large portion of the world afire.. We cannot honor with too deep a reverence the home affections; we cannot cherish them with too much solici tude. Members of the home circle lose nothing by being polite and kind to one another. Little children are such imitative creatures; if the father shows kindly attention to the mother, bright eyes will see the act and is sure to do just like papa. express their views in accordance with their sober re flection upon the issues before them. Casting aside all idea of partanship, it must be ad mitted that President Wilson has conducted the war against Germany aggressively and with a grim determina tion to bring about a victory for the United States and its allies. The measure of his energy to accomplish a 'peace with victory", has gone beyond the most san guine expectation-of his admirers and has been received even by his critics with every evidence of satisfaction. Manifestly it is not fair that Woocfrow Wilson should be judged by what some disgruntled people hope he will do. His attitude thus far In the conduct of the war does not justify either the belief or the fear that he will pur sue any course other than that which he . has so con sistently followed since the day he declared for the use of "force without limit" until the enemy was destroyed. and Prussian militarism wiped off the face of the earth. With those who today are making these "doleful pre dictions the wish is doubtless father to the thought It is not fair to assume that what President Wilson may do at the peace table will be in any manner different from the masterful course in which, up to this very moment, he has aided in bringing the allies, both in diplomacy and on the field of battle, to their present commanding posi It will "be generally admitted that, in the main, the resident is surrounded by strong men from whom he may obtain wise counsel. On the other hand, it is noto rious that he has been handicapped by a few public men in his own party who have failed to give him Jpyal sup port. Among these may be mentioned Clattde Kitchin, chairman of the ways and means committee, and S. lubert Dent, Jr., the gentleman from Alabama, who, because he happened to be next in line, was made a mis fit chairman of the military committee of the House. How Majority Leader Kitchin has not supported the President is too well known to need amplification. It was because of Dent's incapacity or his pacifism that the President had to turn to Representative Kahn, a republi can, to put through the House in the face of democratic opposition the draft act. Neither of these men can go to their constituents and point with pride to their sup port of the President, and democracy would be benefited were both retired, but Norfh Carolina and Alabama can not be depended upon to do so commendable a political set. Much of the criticism aimed at the administration today is due to the acts of such democrats as these. But in his immediate political entourage President Wilson is more favorably situated. He is fortunate in Wing the daily advice "and counsel of . Secretary Mc A.doo, whose administration of the treasury stands out pre-eminently in these troubled days as orie of remark able executive ability. Without funds wars could not be fought and armies and navies would be helpless." Sec- -etary McAdoo has floated loans in amounts that almost stagger .the imagination and done it without disturbing business. The country has confidence in him. The same is true of Secretary Franklin K. Lane, to whom has been entrusted the solution of many of our great domestic questions that have a direct bearing upon the successful prosecution of the war by conserving our natural resources and expanding their development.- Dem ocratic leaders Relieve that President Wilson owes much to the discriminating judgment of Mr. Tumulty, his pri vate secretary. . v We are all Amencans and all for the war. When the election is over, nd matter who wins, the President will have "a united support The war will go on unless Ger many surrenders. And Woodrow Wilson will continue to fight for America and the allies and he will insist upon mch a peace as will be approved by the American peo ple a peace with victory and the accomplishment of the aims he has so ably and eloquently described. Washing, ton Post CHATTANOOGA, Tenn., Oct. 29. Artie Isenberg, of Jonesboro, a 'man who says he cannot with good conscience loan money at interest or to the government has brought to light a proceeding of the treasury department which will probably be news to at least the average citizen. He makes a monthly contribution of $10' to help the government in fi nancing the war, but he refuses to make investment in War Savings Stamps or in Liberty Bonds, because, as he says, they bear interest. The government accepts these contribu tions and places the installments on deposit in the treasury sending to Isenberg a deposit certificate to hold as evidence of his account with Uncle Sam. Much correspondence has passed between Isenberg and T. R. Preston, state director of War Savings in Ten nessee. Isenberg recognizes no per son in his affair with- the govern ment, addresing all his letters to the President or Uncle . Sam. On one letter he writes: "That improfitable servant, that socialist party of America, having paid by gift the price of our Lord's betrayal, namely $30 and by and from the handof Artie Isenberg of Jonesboro, Tenn., now in behalf of socialist party of America and the world, I demand the right to loan money to my government without in terest. .Now that we are friends, I loan - to my government $10 without interest forever. Interest; is war seed. Now if thou wilt cast out in terest from the league, of nations, the war.this and all wars, shall ceaseJZ- Be polite to your children. Do you expect them to be mindful of your welfare, to grow glad at your approach, to bound away at your pleasure before your request is half spoken? Then, with all your -jignity and authority mingle politeness, Give it a niche in your household temple. Only then will you have tbe true secret of send ing out into the world really finished gentlemen and ladies. We hope all who read this column jjri.ll endeavor to keep a few flowers Jn the home. In addition to their beauty and fragrance, they teach" neatness and order. the wife and children like to have a clean room, so that the flower, in its parity and grace, may not shame them And then ,too, a poor man likes to feel that he has an ornament in nls dwelling similar to that which a rich man chooses as the best embellishment of his drawing rocra.

Fire, which threatened to destroy the en tire $2,000,000 plant of the Federal Dye and Chemical company at Kings port, Tenn., near here, was under control at midnight after the still house, one of the most important units of the plant, was burned to the ground. The damage "will reach $65,000. r The blaze is said to have originated from an electric BparK in the sjtill house. Several explosions took place zut no one was injured. The still house, a unit of the chlo ride plant, is situated a short distance from the T. N. T. plant and it was to keep this building from burning that the firemen devoted their efforts. The destroyed building was a five story structure. Burning benzol was thrown hundreds of feet in the afr by the terrific explosions. CITY SUBSCRIBERS.

We have been running all 'this time at an actual loss, in an effort to give Greenevile a daily newspaper. We have appropriated the proceeds from the publication of The Weekly Sun to the expense of The Daily Sun, in order that we might be able to give the afternoon paper a thorough try-out We have re ceived the earnest support of a num ber of our citizens in our undertak ing. We are sorry to say, however, that there are many of our very best people who have never taken the paper, but who still take both' of the Knoxville newspapers. We should have fully five hundred regular sub scribers to The Daily Sun in the city alone. This would cover only about one-half the homes within the city limits proper. From . a business standpoint, if no other, every busi ness firm in Greeneville should re ceive a copy of The Daily Sun every afternoon as it is we daresay less than one-fourth of them are sub scribers to it We have made ar rangements during the past two weeks to increase the size of The Daily Sun and otherwise improve its appearance. In order that this might be done we have installed an addi tional typesetting machine"arrd other equipment at a cost of several thou sand dollars. This machine and equipment, however, can be used on other work should our efforts to con tinue The Daily Sun prove fruitless. The subscription price of The Daily Sun, delivered anywhere in the city, was placed at 15c a week. This is a little more than the larger city papers are getting, but then we are under taking to get out a daily newspaper in a small town with about the same expense upon us as the larger city papers have, and we cannot make the same rate they do until we get estab lished. This rate amounts to $7.80 a year. In order that we may find out just how many of our citizens want to see The Daily Sun continue just how many have sufficient faith in it to pay for the JSaper yearly in advance, we are going to accept yearly subscriptions delivered any where in the city by carrier, at $5 for a few days. This is a saving of $2.80 to all who pay for the full year in advance. At the same time a few hundred of these subscriptions paid in advance just now would as sist us in meeting the heavy expense we have been put to in getting in shape to publish The Daily Sun. We don't believe there is a man in Greeneville but who wants to see this daily newspaper continue, and the failure of 'many to support it has been thoughtlessness on their part they have never stopped to consider just what it means to the town and community. We hope this "class will nowet behind us in pur efforts and with the earnest co-operation of our people we promise to give Greeneville and Greene county a daily newspaper they will not be ashamed of before very long. Mail U3 a check for $5 today for a full year's subscription to The Daily Sun delivered by carrier in the city. Don't all come at once!
