AH Old Officers r Are Re-Elected For Coming Year Important Session of Worship ful County Court Is in Ses sion Today All Magistrates Are Present. The quarterly session of the wor shipful county court met this morn ing at ? o'clock with a full attend ance of, magistrates. - The first busines of the court was the hearing of reports read by differ ent chairmen. These reports took up almost all the forenoon and were adopted by the court before adjourn ing for the noon hour. Shortly be fore noon' the republicans members of the court held a caucus and recom mended that all the old officers be re-elected. This means that Chair man J. H. Maupin will preside over the body again for the coming year and that C. M. Cutshall, together with his associates, will be re-elected county road commissioner for anoth er twelve months, and that the coun ty superintendent of public instruc tioni Joel N. Pierce, will also be re elected for a term of two years more. There is not expected to be many changes made in the several commit tees to be appointed by the chairman There are a few instances when members of committees have asked to be relieved and in these instances new men will be named on the conv mittees. There is much busines of a minor nature to come before the court ,this afternoon, after the regular election of officers is disposed of, and it is doubtful whether all business can be transacted today. Indications are that the court will hold over until Tuesday. ..' OTTWAY BOY WRITES FROM FRANCE Dear Ilomef oiks: How are you by this time! I am we'll and looking fine; also having a good time.

LOVELACE The health of our community has not improved very much since our last letter. The death angel has again invaded our community and took from our midst Mrs. M. J. Brandon, who has for .many months been an invalid. Mrs. Brandon was loved by all who knew her the rich, the poor, the great and the small. Yes, they all over her. She was a warm friend; kind mother, and a devoted Christ ian. We would say to her relatives: Weep not, for your loss is her gain." She knows no suffering, no sorrow; but all is eternal happiness for her. So live that you can clasp mother's hand on the other shore. Mr. Bernie Dykes and little son, Wayne, who have been sufferingwith the Flu, are improving. Also Miss Of a Dykes is reported much better.

William Barnes, an insurance man having only . fivo ti(fm and day night, it was discovered yesterday when the bodies were found in Wilbur Johnson's farm house near Little Si oux, la. He was angry because John son's daughter refused to elope a second time with him. ' Johnson, his wife and their young SOU, as well as vneir aaugnier, mn. Mabel Jones, and her child, were slain. The assassin then turned to the kitchen, where he sat down in a chair, loaded the gun and removed one of his shoes. He tied a string to the ris-trer-of the shotgun and to' his great toe and pulled tjhe trigger. His body was found sitting in the chair. William Hohcnzollern Although the former German Em peror is now utterly shorn of all offi cial power, he is still much in the public eye and doubtless will contin ue to attract special attention until his fate is decided Whife the ex-Kaiser is virtually a prisoner, he still has on deposit in va rious banks, at 4 1-2 per, cent inter est, cash amounting to $4,760,000; so that even though the large govern mental annuities to the various mem bers of the Hohenzollern family (the payment of which has been suspend ed) should be abolished, and the 90 valuable estates to which his family lays claim; be confiscated by the Ger man people, there will still be enough to enable the head .of the f amiljr to nrnvid fairlv enmf ortftblv for his wu0 auu it'iuicu .nuuKTit - l v his own fate , . decent" reports s indicate that this 6ne-tlme emperor has for some, .days been seriously &1ndisposed!?and a that hes-now-cohtined- to hk:bed almost tohtmnouSly1- This' illness seems to M dul prihiarily to a renewal of bs cfiWhitfeaHroable, ;bjuL is doubtless aggravatedv'by 'ierlpngft standing physical -inf irmatkazby bthet- changes of habit and" invironment incident to his cdnfinemetttr," and also r,by ;the mental depression and worry occa sioned by his vastly changed estate.

" Some idea of the ex-Kaiser's vani ty, and the consequent greatness of the blow which his pride has received, may be obtained from the fact that a recent inventory of his private- be longings in Berlin and Potsdam shows that his wardrobe," when he fled from Germany, y included 598 military and naval uniforms.

Negro Soldiers 1 Reported Marrying French Girls Soldiers returning from abroad have many startling things to tell. One bf the most unbelievable of these for by both soldiers and sailors, is tha't hundreds of 'American negro troops in France are marrying French girls, and one of '.Lenoir City's re turned sailors even goes so far as to declare that French women and girls, nine times out of ten, prefer negroes to white men for husbands. One of the reasons given for tjhis is that negro soldiers in France are passing themselves off as American ndians, whom the French have been taught to regard as a noble race. Ther are few things more repul sive to the people of the United States, and Southerners especially, than intermarriage of the white and black races, and practically all the states have laws against it. If tjhese negro soldiers attempt to bring their white wives back to America with them, the Klu-Klux Klan will pome to life again.--Lenoir City News . ! BAILEYTON ROUTE 4.

It hasn't rained 'since last night. ' How is the weather over there? , Well, mother, I will try and tell you something of what I have been doing since I left home.

The boat I was on ran into a sub-chaser and tore the end out of our boat but there was no one hurt. After landing at Liverpool we cross ed Erg'and by rail. It took us about 12 hours to run from Liverpool to Dover. We went by London but I didn't get to see very much of the - kindred disorders destroy health.

Then we moved on to Belgium, the first place we entered the lines. We stayed five days at Ypres, and were in the town of Ypres. The largest part of a building I saw while there was the end of a house. The Germans shelled it nine days at the beginning of the war.
