THE GEEENEVILLE DAILY SUN, SATURDAY, JANUARY 18, 1919. Edgar H. Fox Writes Friends From His Grantwood, N. J. - Jan. 15th, 1919. The Daily Sun, Greeneville, Term, Sir: . , Who ia Jake? I understand you now have "traffic cops" and that at the corner of Min and Irish streets you sport a red atid green sign, with the proper lights at night; further that congested travel at that point is kept n its proper channels. Person ally I am not given over much to profanity being an Episcopalian!!! I do not think I had the extreme pleasure of meeting Jake in my nu merous pilgrimages to and from your county seat. Your Southern hospi tality was very forceful at all times and certainly was appreciated by the "stranger" that was within your gates. His allusion to the crowded condition of Grecneville's streets, "My God, Jake, where in h 1 did all these people come from?" How you T k must have grown in the few years have been absent from "home?" Mr. Editor, did that story origi nate or spring from the secret ar chives of Greeneville Post office? I ask you as man to man, did it? That good old sport, John Q. Wil liams, writes me that "the home fires are burning;" that John McKee still walks on McKee street, also that the waters of the Big Spring are just as satisfying as of yore; that the Big Ball is bieeer and more beautiful than lver; that skyscrapers are going up on Main street. I beg to assure you that I regret I was not the Jer seyman who entertained that Gov boy "way back yonder." But it was through no fault of mine. I saw recently in the Sun that Pel ham Fox was at Roosevelt Field. I wrote him extending him the liberty MEADOW VIEW Mr. Ray Kilday, who has had the flu, is reported some better at this writing. . ' Mr. J. II. Dugger made a business trip to Greeneville Thursday. Mr, J. L, Beamer took a nice load of tobacco to town Wednesday, which brought him a nice sum of money. Mr. Jas. Moore was a business vis itor at R. J. Kilday's recently. , Mr. W. L. Kilday is confined tc his home with grippe. Mr. II. M. Crigger and Mr. and Mrs. J. B, Woolsey and family 'pent a few hours with 'Mr. and Mrs. Roy Woolsey Wednesday night. l ! ' ! "I 1 ! I ! "HINTS FROM LINTZ" There is a man in our town, of very ample size, He neither leans towards the wets, nor todies to the "drys." The smile upon his countenance is a melody to me, And the stock of wares, he caries, are groceries, you see. , "Pause, stranger," in thy strolling, and look in on good Lintz. . He lias goods of well-known quality, bacon, hams and mints; Coffee, tea and sugar, flour, corn meal and rice, - ' And bargains wait the buyer, in quality and price. The' greatest thing he has, is the Chief-tain, old and gray, , And David has employed Jim to help him tie and weigh. Then rally 'round the flag, boys, and Johnnie get your gun I ; For Dave and Jim forever are, always on th'i run. ;'.: Dave.: keeps a blacksmith with him, constant in his pay, . ; For his doors so often opened, burn a hinge off every day. 4 He keeps a justice ready to marry any pair, jBut David never combs his head there'll be no parting there. Good David, he will sell you, tobacco and fine snuff, Brown'sMule or Tinsley chewing, or any other stuff. Whilst James awaits your order, for ham, hogshead or jowl, You'd take him for Dave's brother, for he's making Dave a roll. ' Much more could be added to these Siam-easy twins, And David, he is groggy in the use of of both hi3 pins. He had a fall that hurt him, about one year ago, When the floor was slick with sorghum, and the air was thick with snow. Tobacco, snuff and candy, cheese and karo, lard, Kraut, and meat in plenty sausage, pound or yard. Tobacco men are welcome Dave will treat them nice Pepper sauce and apples green, or in the slice. He has a good assortment of staple groceries Syrup, quart or gallon honey made by bees. Celery, cabbage, onions, but bushel or the peck He's an all-round grocer, he is, says, J by heck! Come then you wise old buyers, our prices kindly note; - Come to your uncle David his terms are "cash and tote." He saves you time and money, and that is cutting ice, For if you come to see us once, I'm sure you'll combe back twice. (Words and music by W. H.) 4 ' Old Greeneville Home In New Jersey of our burg; also incidentally of '.'lit tle old New York" and the hospitali ty of the "Fox den." I hope to hear from him in the near future. Joe Coward has promised to visit me when he returns to the land of his birth and , the "home of the free." "You all" are certainly to blame if "we all" are not kept posted as to the movements of your sons. And Lieut.' Leland P. Lovette. I recall him as a student , of music at the paternal home. The tones he forced from that Oboe it was a mu sical instrument, I believe! The mu sic was certainly soul-satisfying, and greatly appreciated by upper Main street or lower, which was it? Later, when I called on him at An napolis, and found him walking his "lonely beat" what was it all about; Leland? Oh! yes, it was some sort of "preparedness parade," was it not? And now he is in command of a U. S. S war vessel named In .honor i t i It oi mat renowned navai nero com modore Macdonough. Will wonders ever cease? Joking aside, we have cause to be proud of our boys didn't the Tennessee ar.d North Carolina boys fight along side of our rainbow division at Chateau Thierry? Everybody knows what happened there. If the infirmities of age do not come on apace, and if the price of gasoline does not soar in the realms of you sky-scrapers, I may, in the course of time and human events, avail myself of the opportunity of traveling over your good roads, and if they should prove "too slick," I might even make the trip by the air route. t EDGAR H.

V V r Theodore Roosevelt , In His Last Editorial Article, of Plans to Abolish Wars Favored Extending Privileges of ually as Their Conduct Warrants It America Must Make It Clear That We Do Not Intend to Take Position of An Inter national Meddlesome Matty. KANSAS CITY, Mo., Jan. 14. An last contribution that Col. Theodore Roosevelt prepared for the Kansas City Star, appeared in that newspaper today. The editorial was dictated Friday, January 3, and his secretary expected rection on the following Monday. Instead he was notified early that morn ing of "his death. The article follows: By THEODORE It is, of course, a serious misfor tune that our people are not getting a clear idea of what is happening on the other side. For the moment the point as to which we are foggy is the league of nations. We, all of us, earnestjy desire such a league, only we wish to be sure that it will help and not hinder the cause of world peace and justice. There is not a young man in this country who has fought, or an old man who has seen those dear to him fight, who does not wish to minimize the chances of fu ture war. But there is not a man of sense who does not know that in any such movement if too much is at tempted the result is either failure or worse than failure. Agree With Tef t' Views. The trouble with Mr. Wilson's ut terances, so far as they are reported, and the utterances of acquiescence In them by European watesmen, is that they are still absolutely in the stage of rhetoric precisely like the fourteen points. Some of the fourteen points will probably have to be construed as having a mischievous sense, a smaller number might be construed asbeing harmless, and one or two even as ben eficial, but nobody knows what Mr. Wilson really means by , them; and so all talk of accepting them as basis for peace or league is nonsense, and if the talker is intelligent, it is insin cere nonsense, to boot. , , , , . Mr. Wilson's, recenj; utterances give us absolutely .ty.cle a,s to whether he really intends tha, at this moment we shall admit) Russia, 'Germany, with which inentiajly, .we are still waging war, j,urxej, jjppinaano mexip) no the league .on a full equality with p'ur- Selyes.1 , Mr?a.has itfcehtfy denied yie purposes oi.,jine league t ana viqe in a way thatjnables most of us(to say , we very, heartily agree, in prin ciple with his, theory and can, without doubt, come to an agreement on spe cific details. , " , . Allied Alerady Form League. Would it hot be well to begin with the league which we really have in ex istence the league of the allies who have fought through this great warl Let us at the peace table see that real justice is done as among those allies, BRIGHT HOPE Miss Sarah Sauceman is confined to her room with the Flu. Miss Virginia Bell is visiting in Johnson-City. Mrs. Horace Mllendore has the flu. Mrs. J. C. Love and little son, Wal ter, and Mrs. T. S. Hutton were pleasant visitors at E. T.

Mrs. Abey Curtis and Mrs. Mattie Pulliam spent Wednesday afternoon with Mrs. Rosa Ryan, who is in very poor health. Mr. and Mrs. Amos Taylor spent Saturday night and Sunday with Oda Temoleton, of Sugar Hollow. Fred Fincher and Luther Pitt were out trading today. Garrett Hall made a business trip to Greeneville Tuesday. He reports a jolly time while in the city. Miss Jennie nankins, our school teacher,, of this place, ' will epend Wrote, League to Other Nations Grad article on the league of nations, the to take the typed copy to him for cor ROOSEVELT. and that while the sternest repara tion is demanded from our foes for such horrors as those committed in Belgium, northern France, Armenia and the sinking of the Lusitania, nothing should be done in the spirit of mere vengeance. Then let us agree to extend the, privileges of the league as rapidly as their conduct warrants it to other nations, doubtless discrim inating between those who would have a guiding part in the league and the weak nations who would be entitled to the privileges of membership but who would not be entitled to a guid ing voice in the councils. Let each nation reserve to itself and for its own decision, and let it clearly set forth questions which are nonjustifi able. Let nothing be done that will interfere with our preparing for our own defense by introducing a system of universal obligatory military train ing modeled on the Swiss plan. Must Keep Monroe Doctrine. Finally make it perfectly clear that we do not intend to take a position of an international Meddlesome Mat ty. ' The American people do not wish to go into an overseas war unless for a very great cause and where the is sue is absolutely plain.. Therefore, we do hot wish to undertake the re sponsibility of sending our .gallant young men to die in ooseure fights in the Balkans or in central Europe, or in a war we do not approve of Moreover, the American people do hot intend to giv up the Monroe doc trine. Let.civilized Europe and Asia introduce some kind of police system in the weak and disorderly countries at their thresholds. ' But let the Unit ed States treat Mexico as our Balkan peninsula and refuse to allow Euro pean or Asiatic powers to interfere on this continent in any way that im plies permanent or semi-permanent possession. Every one of our allies will with delight grant this request if President Wilson chooses to make it, and it will be a great misfortune if it is not made. ; I believe that such "an effort made moderately and sanely, but sincerely and with utter scorn for words that are not made good by deeds, will be productive of real and lasting inter national good.

Morristown Canteen Is Calling For Help The Morristown Canteen has sent out the SOS call. Since the enthusi asm over the war has died down the canteen is experiencing difficulties in getting sufficient contributions to arry it on successfully. As Greene ville is so peculiarly situated that a -anteen would be impossible here, and is doubtless hundreds of our young nen have been served by .the good 'vomen of Morristown at their can teen, it would be as little as Greene ville could do to send a liberal dona tion to the good women of our neigh boring little city for canteen purpos es. A donation from the Red Cross rhapter would not fre out of place just now, and it is to be hoped that something will be done at once re garding the matter, in as much as an appeal has been made for help from the Morristown canteen. PORTO RICAN RED CROSS CHXp. TER The Porto Rican Chapter of the Red Cross reports that food and med ical assistance have been furnished during the influenza epidemic to all dependent families and soldiers. In rof-opf earthquake relief work there the Red Cross chose to raise its own relief funds, and within a few days more than $7,000 was raised. Surgeons, nurses, .hospital supplies, food clothing, and, in fact, all that was needed for the sufferers, were furnished by the Red Cross.

The mania for profanity and the craze for gambling .and the rage for dancing are not the legitimate fruit of patriotism or of patriotic activi ties, and they are not even remotely connected in essence with these alto gether admirable and praiseworthy things. But they have apparently come to be associated with both in the minds of a great many people. Cursing the' Kaiser does not strength en one's love for one's country; buy ing a chance in a raffle is not at all an evidence of patriotio fervor; and dancing, even though it be with sol diers and sailors, is no more a patri otic duty than drinking pond water. Patriotism and morality are not in conflict; it cannot be right to do wrong on the plea that it is patriotic. We ought to say "No" to a good many things. New Orleans Chris tian Advocate. , , .
