THE GREENEVILLE DAILY SUN, MONDAY, JUNE 2, 1919. - , LOCAL and PERSONAL MENTION THE TOY STREWN HOUSE Give me the house where the toys are strewn, Where the dolls, are asleep in the chairs, Where the building blocks and the toy balloon, And the soldiers guard the stairs Let me step in the house where the tiny cart With its horses rules the floor, And the rest comes to my weary heart For I am at home once more. Give me the house with the toys about, With the battered old train of cars, The box of paints and the books left out And the ship with her broken spars; Let me step in the house at the close of the day That is littered with children's toys, and dwell once more in the haunts of play With the echoes of by gone noise. Give me the house where the tops are seen, The house where the children romp, And I'll happier be than man has been Neath the gilded dome of pomp. Let me see the litter of bright eyed play Strewn over the parlor floor, And the joys I know in a faroff day Will gladden my heart once more. Whoever has lived in a toy strewn home Though feeble he be and gray Will yearn, no matter how far he roam, For the glorious disarray Of the little home with its littered floor That was his in bygone days, And his heart will throb as it throb bed before When he rests where a baby plays.

Lucy Gregory. 2-55-lt Mr. Kim Myers, who has been con nected with the Tennessee Eastern Llectnc company here ror a num ber of years as repair man, and who was well know by Greeneville citi zens, was electrocuted Saturday ev ening while hanging a transformer on one of the company's poles in the rear of the Southern depot, on Lo retta street. Mr. Myers was summoned about 8:45 to extinguish a fire on the pole just in the rear of the Southern de pot. He answered the summons im mediately, and it was while he was attempting to repair the damage caused by the fire that he met his death. He had used a tackle to draw a transformed into place on the cross arm and had finished most of the dangerous work, it is reported. In attempting to remove the tackle which had hung up on a wire his foot which was resting on a telephone wire in some way caused him to get the full voltage 2300 volts, and he was killed almost instantly. Mr. Myers was very popular with the citizens of Greeneville because of his cheerful disposition and willing ness at all times to co-operate with them in any m:nner possible connect ed with his line of work, and his sud den death was a great shock to his many friends throughout this sec tion. His remains were taken to the Doughty-Stevens funeral parlors im mediately after being taken from the wires, which was done early after the current had been cut off, and pre pared for burial, which took place all the home of his wife's parents, at Midway, Tenn., Sunday afternoon at 3:00 o'clock. Mr. Myers is survived by his wife and one child, also his mother and father, Mr. and Mrs. Croft Myers, and three brothers Mr. Croft Myers was in the West at the time of his death. j j. j ! j j ! j j j. DEATHS. j j j j j ! j ! j j t Deranged Soldier Cared For By the Local Red Cross Last Saturday a soldier was put off of train No. 41 and a bystander requested to place him in a hospital. It developed that he was suffering from melancholia undoubtedly pro duced by shell shock. His discharge identified hi mas James E. Willis, of Boaz, Ala. He had enlisted in No vember, 1917, and was assigned to Battery A, 65th C. A. C. He had been in France for about one year and had seen service in more than ten of the big engagements there. It was impossible to get much infor mation from him, but his railroad ticket showed he was en route home. He cared for at the Hospital until Saturday, when Greene County Chapter, A. R. C, sent him, accom panied by W. M. Rader, to the Gov ernment hospital at Asheville, the Chapter paying all of the expenses. This is another evidence of the great good which the Red Cross is doing and gives our people an oppor tunity to be of service to those who have done so much for us. We sin cerely hope thet Mr. Willis will soon recover and be able to return to his home. If you have not joined or have not renewed your membership in the Red Cross, do so now. It only costs $1.00. ShrinersHad Big Festivity POTENTATE DOUGHTY THANKS CITIZENS ISAAC W. WILLHOIT Mr. Isaac W. Willhoit ' died at his home at Flag Branch on Sunday, the 25th.

To the Citizens of Greeneville: I wish in this way to express to you my thanks and hearty appreciation of your co-operation in helping to entertain the visiting Shriners and citizens from other sections of last Friday when Kerbela Temple held its ceremonial session here in Greene ville. From all sides I hear compl ment after compliment on the beauty of our city and the hospitality of our people. I have received scores of letters in the last day or two ex pressing the delight and pleasure that the parties had while in Greene ville. I feel that this was a most successful occasion and it was made possible by the hearty co-operation of the citizens of Greeneville, and without this co-operation it would have been impossible. Greeneville has a reputation second to no town in the state for doing her part nobly when she undertakes anything of this nature, and J am delighted to say that her reputation for hospitality did not suffer on this occasion, but even luster was added to her glory. As Potentate of Kerbela Temple, I again wish to thank my fellowciti zens for their many acts of loyalty and kindness to me and assure them that this friendship will never be for gotten. Yours very truly, GEO. W. DOUGHTY.

George Washington. Alton Packard, widely known as a master cartoonist, humorist, singer of songs and withal a moralist, will appear in a Joy Night supieme on the concluding program of the Redpath Chautauqua. As a cartoonist, Mr. Packard sketches upon sheets of paper and canvasses eight feet square, said to be the largest sketches ever attempt ed on the platform, so they can be seen easily from any part of the big Chautauqua tent. Packard's humor has a rare quali ty of being supremely human and be best described as genial. The feeling that prevails in a Packard ludience is said to be so different from that of any other thr.t he if called the cartoonist and humorist who is so different. Packard's work is all original, even his songs are all his own composi tion and some of them are very fun ny. His song, "Yaller Dawg," "When You Get What You Want You Don't Want It," "Smile and Look the Other Way," "Get Up" and others produce roars of applause. MR. BIDDLE'S CARD To the Voter of the Firtt Ward: Most of you know, or have heard, that I am a candidate for alderman for the First Ward at an election to be held June 3rd, next. Under the circumstances it will be impossible for me to see all the voters before the election. Neither do I deem that necessary, as all of you are suf ficiently intelligent to make up your minds for whom you want for alduf men in this ward. I will only say that I will greatly appreciate your votes and, if elected, will work for the best interest of the town and its citizens. It is humanly impossible not to make mistakes, but I will endeavor to represent you and the entire town as best I can. I consider a public office a public trust and will, as far as possible, if elected, discharge the duties of iha office ever bearing in mind that I am a pubic servant. J. E. BIDDLE. Br J. R. Williams (Publisher Appalachian Trade Jour nal.) "The greatest day in the history of Greeneville," so far as fraternal cel ebrations is concerned, was that on Friday when 1,100 Mystic Shriners and their ladies, r.s official fiuests of the local Shriners and hundreds of visitors from surrounding towns and counties, crowded the streets from morning until night. One hundred and forty candidates appeared to cross the burning sands, so that this was likewise a red letter day in the history of Kerbela Tem ple, A. A. O. N. M. S. The Knoxville delegation left on an early morning train, while a stream of automobiles started early and continued to leave for several hours. While the day was warm the hot weather did not interfere with the complete success of the occasion, but was made the subject of good natur ed comment. Greeneville wrote itself large on the map of the estimation of the vis itors, not only for the generous hos pitality shown on all sides, but in the citylike and businesslike manner in which the entertainment was pro vided and dispensed, and by the pres ent metropolitan appearance which Greeneville has taken on in the pav ing of its streets and its modern pub lic buildings, notably its high school. Greeneville has become one of the greatest tobacco markets in the south, and by having many spacious tobacco warehouses, it was enabled to comfortably serve the noon ban quet to seven hundred Shriners and their ladies at one sitting, and like wise stage the ceremonial in which seven scores of unsuspecting candi dates traveled over the scorching sands and finally admitted that they had received their money's worth. While the hundreds of red tops gave the city streets a lively appear ance, the grotesque costumes of the candidates afforded the greatest amusement to the public, while the appearance and drills of the Arab Patrol, and the playing of the 117th regimental band with a squad of the oeturned doughboys, completed the -... I. u . . I V.1V j'U Ul... . . V . U .Ilk celebration. . i ' A number of causes contributed to making the day the complete success that it was': .. - ' First Since the War. This is the first big ceremonial that Kerbela has held since the armistice was signed, so that the old Nobles were hungry for fun, and evidently those desiring to join the Shrine had been waiting for the first peace time opportunity. Another decided factor was that the present Illustrious Potentate, George W. Doughty, lives in Greene ville. In order to show their appre ciation of the honor that had come to their fellow townsman Shriner, the Greeneville Shriners organized a club several month sago with the ex press purpose of working to make this a day of days in Kerbela Tem ple and Greeneville. All Greeneville aided and abetted them in their un dertaking. Potentate Doughty Is not only pop ular with his home folks but equally so with all other members of the Temple and they decided to turn out en masse. During the day Potentate Doughty was the recipient of a hand some Shrine emblem from the Patrol in a neat speech made by Captain Macintyre. The Temple voted unanimously to buy a complete summer outfit of light weight uniforms for the patrol which was greeted by loud applause by that body. The evening picnic supper and night dance completed the program of a perfect day which will live long in the memory of Greeneville's citi zens and the visitors who were given the glad hand on all sides. The chairmen of the local commit tee for the Greeneville ceremonial were: E. A. Lancaster, General; J. W. McDannel, Sr., Candidates; H. H. Gouchenour, Glad Handers; Jay Milligan, Automobiles; H. R. Brown, Reception; C. W. Allen, Banquet; J. S. Bernard, Jr., Parade; Clark Ki- ser, Music; L. a. Trim, tintertain-ment. Chairmen of the ladies committees were: Mrs. Charles W. Allen, bight Seeing; Mrs. Henry R. Snapp, Mov ing Pictures Party; Miss Julia Brab son, Banquet; Mrs. T. D. Brobson, Evening Reception. What are YOU dom If you are fooling it away QUIT IT.
