A good many years ago, when a boy was whipped at school, he receive another whipping when he went home, but in these days the father and mother wipe his tears away and go and whip the teacher. Boys and girls, what is it you can never catch, though you chase after it on the wings of the wincf? You can never catch the word that has once left your lips. Once spoken, it is out of your reach; do your best you can nevtr recall it. Therefore, take care what you say. Never speak an unkjnd word, an impure word or a profane word. (It seems to us that it would now be most appropriate for the congress of the United States to change the date of our Thanksgiving day to the 11th of November instead of the last Thursday in November? It would be a most fitting honor for the Yanks overseas who brought about such a glorious victory over the Huns in so short a time after getting into the world war. A "girl" living not far from this city, of rather ancient appearance, was asked why she did not rritirry. Her reply is practical, if it is anything. She said, " Ihave some money of my own; have a parrot that can swear and a pioney that can chew and a cat that stays out late of nights. What need have I of a husband?" Can any body answer this sensible female? An exchange truthfully remarks that "there are too many people in almost every town who will not cast their bread, upon the waters, unless assured beforehand that it will come back again in a few days a full-grown sand wich, all trimmed with ham, butter and mustard, rolled jU in a warranty deed for one-half the earth and a mort gage on the other half. We like to see the glancing, cheerful light through the window of a neghbor of a cold night, or watch them a? evening deepens, gradually creeping from the parlor to the upper stories of the house near us. We like to watch the little children going in and out of the door, to play or to school. We like to see the white-robed baby dancing up and down at the window in its mother's .arms, or the father reading his newspaper there at evening, or any of hsia-vtjerffuf impromptu home glimpses, which though we are no Paul Pry, we will assert go to make a pleasant neighbor to those who ljvij for comfort instead of show. Theschoolma'am is the guiding star of the republic. She takes the little bantling freh from the home nest, full of his pouts, his pets and his passions, ungovernable in many cases, a rampant, riotous little wretch whose own mother often admits she sends Kim to school pur posely to get rid of him. The schoolma'am takes a whole carload of these little anarchists, ,half whom singly and alone cannot be handled by their own mothers, t nd she puts them in the way of becoming useful citizens. To honor the memory of the departed mothers and enrich the ever ennobling lives of those who are living an "International Honor Day" has been designated in the civilized nations of the world. The general object of Mothers' Day is a simultaneous observance of the love and gratitude men, women, children and nations owe their good mothers. The special object is to honor and uplift motherhood, and to give happiness to "the best mother that ever lived'- Your Mother. "What is home without a paper?" A home without a newspaper is no home at all. It is a kind of dreary den a rendezvous of bedbugs and fleas, where the in habitants live in blissful ignorance of what the world is doing. It is inhabited b ya class who do not know who is president or what he is president of who never find out that a thing has happened until long after every one else has forgotten it. The children grow up in rags and dirty while the wife generally finds consolation in darning socks and lugging a pipe loaded with long green tobacco, and the man generally lives because he can't die and he is too lazy to kill himself. He goes out on election days and does not know who he is voting for, but just takes the ticket bearing the name his great great grandfather voted for. WHAT GERMANY IS COMPELLED TO DO.

Some mathematician has figured out that one cent a bushel on all corn, two cents a bushel on all wheat, and Iwo cents per ton on all hay raised in this portion of our state would build ten miles of permanent roads in one year, or 100 miles in ten years, thus in a little while "jiving the farmers a network of highways passable at ill seasons of the year, and at on outlay that would hardly be noticed at all. hTere is food for thought in the story that is told of a young lad, who for the first time accompanied his father to a public dinner. The waiter asked him, "What will you take to drink?" Hesitating for a moment, he replied, 'I'll take what father takes." The answer reached his 'ather's ear, and instantly the full responsibility of his position flashed upon him. In a moment his decision was made, and in tones tremulous with emotion, and to the istonishment of those who knew him, he said, "Waiter, I'll take water." Much has been said and written about the model hus band. A .quarter of a century ago Ella Wheeler Wilcox penned her ideas of a model husband and we doubt if hey could be improved upon. "Ella" said if she were isked to define the meaning of a successful man, she would say a man who has made a happy home for his wife nd children. No matter what he has done in the way f achieving wealth or honors, if he has done that he is t grand success. If he has not done that, and it is his own fault, though he be the highest in the land, he is a nostpitiable failure. There is one sin which seems to us is everywhere and by everybody underestimated and quite too mucji over 'ooked in valuation of character. It is the sin of fretting, :'o common that unless it rises above its usual monotone we do not observe it. Watch any ordinary coming to gether of people and see how many minutes it will be before somebody frets that is, makes more or less com olaining statement of something or other, which most orobably every one in the room, or in the car, or on the street corner, it may be, knew before, and which prob ably no one can help. Why say anything about it? It is cold, it is hot, it is wet, it is dry; somebody has broken an appointment; ill-cooked a meal; stupidly or bad faith, somewhere has resulted in discomfort Our town has one thing which she is justly proud of and to which she largely owes her good name, the influence of our schools. They have sent out a class of youn ladies and gentlemen that are wielding a power for good and most successfully filling the best places, and positions in life. There is no more efficient aid to morality, hon esty, sobriety and good citizenship than well-conducted public schools, and it is the part of wisdom to keep these .schools up to the very highest point of excellency, and to do this there must be harmony of four elements, viz: the school board, the patrons, the scholars and the teach ers, and without which perfect success cannot be at tained, therefore, let it be the duty of these four ele ments to see that no deficiency or hindrances arise on their parts to thwart the good purpose of our schools. If factions exist, pray disband and give your hearty sane lion and co-operation to the eorta being made to main lain the excellencies of our schools today, and so en hance their interest that they shall stand second to none in the land. Greene County Teachers Met Last Saturday TheGreene county teachers' meet ing was held in the courthouse last Saturday. This meeting was sched uled for October 12th, but was post poned on account of the influenza epidemic. The meeting began with an en thusiastic singing of "America," fol lowed by prayer by Mr. Mitchell. The chairman, Mr. Harrold, spoke of the value of organizing a Junior !Red Cross in schools. Mr. Brooks regarded it as promoting a spirit of sacrifice, obligation and sympathy. Brief talks followed by Mr. Burkhart, Mr. Riggs, Mr. Easterly, Mr. Hunts man and Dr. McConagha on the ef feet of the war on schools. Each spoke of the vacant seats, but be lieved the effect of the war would be favorable on the youth of the coun try; that a more earnest spirit is evinced by parents, who, with the children, have realized the import ance of education. Germany's powerful school discip line was referred to as a reason for their long struggle with the allies. . The benefits of military training at Tusculum college was mentioned 42 hours of study each week, aside from the splendid physical drill. The war has broadened the knowl edge of countries and peoples, mak ing a greater desire to read. The speakers agreed that hard study is the safest solution to meet any ebn dition that may arise. "In What Ways the School May Serve the Nation" came next Mr. Brooks suggested the importance of instilling patriotism into the children at an early age. Miss McDonald thought elevating the standard of citizenship, by moral and religious training, the most po tent influence in serving the country. Miss Moore spoke of her work in serving the nation, by teaching the importance of a good digestion in the careful preparation of food. Dr. Clark, of the University of Tennessee, addressed the meeting, and it is to be regretted that more of our people were not present to hear his searching remarks. The general trend of his discourse was the effect of the. war and the changes it will make, turning everything to account and utilizing our natural resources. He spoke of the bill in congress for large appropriations to stamp out illiteracy, since in the draft the great neglect of education was brought to light and that cases of desertion were due to monotony, with no intellectual resources just morbid homesickness from day to day. He referred to the advancement in surgical science and the improved methods of transporta tion. Particular emphasis was given to preparation for teaching commer cial subjects, medical inspection, care of the teeth, physical development and the value of Boy Scouts. Teachers were advised to prepare md fit themselves to command more of the great amount to be spent on ducation in the near future. Dr. Clark's closing remarks was a olea for more money, greater appro priations from the county court and that genuine patriotism begins in the taxpayers' pocket Mr. Mitchell asked all teachers to organize "Earn and Give" clubs in Mieir schools to help our boys who have paid such a dear price for us all, each member becoming a "Vic tory boy or girl." The school chil dren are expected to earn and give a liberal sum and from the way they have started they will exceed the ex pectation. Mr. Mitchell regards it most de rirable to ,have children early learn the lesson of self-denial, and surely now is the time to meet the calls for sympathy and charity all over the 'and. Mr. Pierce made a strong appeal for children to return to school and to leave any fear of influenza to the discretion of the teacher and those who are handling the situation as best they can. The meeting adjourned to meet again December 7, 1918. ZOE WILLIAMS, Sec.

VOLUNTARY EXPRESSION OF APPRECIATION To the .Editor of The Sun: The Mothers' club wish to express their appreciation fo rthe effort you have put forth in giving our little city a daily newspaper. "Mothers," you know, as a rule, are busy women, and we find for' those who do not have time to read at length that The Daily Sun not only gives the latest war news condensed, but is full of helpful and useful information, all of which the Mothers' club appre ciate and desire to give the editor a unanimous vote of thanks. Long live The Daily Sun 1 Greeneville, Tenn., Nov. 12, 1918. Co. I, 17th Inf., Camp Meade, Md., November 9, 1918. Dear Editor: I am enclosing a few lines that I would be glad for you to print in your paper. I am a Greeneville boy. My father is J. F. Wagner, R. F. D. No. 1. I have been in five different camps since I enlisted at Johnson City. I have found them all a little different at each place. I have been in this company so long now that it just seems like home to me and all of us boys are just like brothers to one another, and believe me, we sure have our fun. There isn't anything that we don't do and we are ready now to go over to France and let the Huns know that the 17th boys are coming through. For the 17th has got a good record for fighting when it comes to taking up for one of our boys they are right there. Now, when the 17th infantry gets on the firing line, look out, Huns, for they are just like yellow jackets in a briar patch. For we are not going to let them get us without them getting scratched. The 17th has had a fine record everywhere it has been, but when we get on German soil and give them ust one preade, the Huns will say that we have 'got the best record they have ever seen. Now, if the Huns hadn't heard that the 17th was coming oyer they would not have asked for peace. Though they haven't signed it yet, for they haven't found out for sure that we are coming; so if any one who-reads this and meets up with aIIun don't tell him that we are coming. Well, as I haven't got anything more to say only that I would like to write to all of my old friends before I go over. But as I haven't got time to writeHtnd they read this they will know that I haven't forgotten them and our Sunday sc,hool at C. H. So I will close. Love to all. I remain, yours truly, VERNIA C.
