Meanwhile the largest producers of gasoline are feverishly experiment ing and . trying in every possible way to obtain the secret formula from the only two men wno knowlt Major 0. B. Zimmerman, of the engineer corps and Capt. E. C. Weisgerber. 1 Major Zimmerman said today that arrangements for manufacture are now pending. The patents will be issued in the name of the Govern ment avnd of Captain Weisgerber. The Kaiser's Confession i. The Kaiser's attempt to kill him self is surprising, if, true. For "sui cide is confession." The Kaiser with the Bible and other religious books piled up on his table, has doubtless, convinced himself himself that he is thorougly in the right in- all that he has done. That is a peculiarity of those highly religious in a misguided way. To blow out his brains or cut his throat now would be to confess himself in the wrong. It might, however, be only con firmation of what Maximilian Harden says, that the Kaiser is a coward. He 'is a strange mixture of blood, and there has been mny chances for the cowardly streak to get in. - Vann Bros, have to wind up their business now and for this reason their large stock will be sold t a great v reduction. This means that one of the largest stocks in East Ten nessee will now be placed on the mar ket at prices that will astonish you.
