Strong Probability that All but 113

From the names so far received

world at war, with civilization caught
unawares. We've got to the famine
point. Who puts the last loaf of bread
into his belly wins. It is no longer a
question of who is strongest, but of
who is weakest. Yet in such a crisis,
with the decisive factors so apparent,
there are men and women who strut
about and eat what they please and
more than they need. They are not

"It pays to advertise." Now that

only applied to business affairs, yet
when we took advantage of the invi invitation

found that every seat in the big
church was occupied and that so
large a number was standing around
the doors, that Fire Chief Chambers
had to put in an appearance and
make a survey as to the personal
safety of so big a crowd, we think we
are right in saying that the notice in
the Star like any business ad. was
bringing big returns.
It was Sunday school rally day and
a big drive was made during the
week to get out 500 people, and if
that number was. not present it was
only because there was a" limit even
to the capacity of a Methodist church.
All the classes were full and the

which looks as though it might have

leader, Brother M. M. Little threat

and Fort King avenue. It is very evi evident
dent evident from the interest taken in the
class by the business men of the city
and led by the best teacher in the
state, that it is a very short time till
larger and more comfortable quar quarters

The program carried out by the
school at the opening exercises was
very interesting and was so arranged
that everybody present, from Pastor
Smith Hardin, Superintendent L. W.
Duval and the musical director, M.
M. Little, to the youngest boy in the
school, had their part cut out for
them and they all did well.
The principle feature of the pro program

The dialogue between teachers and
scholars also told of the number or
scholars in their schools and the vast
amount of money raised by them for

the number of men drafted into the

Ex-Govemor Patterson is one of
the best known and most eloquent
speakers for the cause of prohibition
in this country. He was twice elected
governor of Tennessee, and during
those terms was one of prohibition's
bitterest foes. In his speeches at that
time he characterized prohibition as
the prolific cause of almost every ill
which had befallen his state and
party, and as an infringement on
personal liberty and property rights.
He became converted to the new
viewpoint that the general welfare of
society is of more importance than
individual liberty, whose strong ad advocate

this new attitude he studied the liq liquor

In England some 2,400,000 acres of

According to official French figures,

"Alcohol, whether you call it beer,
wine, whisky, or by any other name, is
a breeder of inefficiency. While it
affects men differently, the results are
the same, in that all affected by it
cease for the time to be normal. Some

If one officer or man Is permitted to
use liquor, then others will claim the
right to do so. How can a division of

of this insidious evil some soldiers for forget

A bang in the dining room outside
was heard and the young man turned
on his sister quickly.
As Joe lurched into the lunchroom,
slunk. Into a seat, and, grasping in his
hands a salt cellar, he beat a tattoo
on the table.
Soon the girl emerged from the
kitchen with Brent's order, and as
she passed Joe she stepped out of his
way as he made a grab for her arm.
Brent noticed her agitation as she set
the dishes down in front of him. In
response to her polite and musical
query if he would have anything else,
he absently gave a negative nod and
she started back for the kitchen.
' This time, as she passed the drunk's
table, she was not quick enough to
dodge his restraining hand, and he
pulled her over to him.
"Please, Joe," she pleaded.
"A kiss a sweet little kiss," came
the maudlin answer. "Cmon now. Ah,

but the stranger, with his scarcely

quest of the watchers was brief, for a
new gust of rain drove them inside.
and locking the doors they extinguished
the lights and retired.
Half an hour later, just as the girl
had slipped off to sleep, a loud rapping
at the front door beneath her room
summoned her, attired in a- simple
dressing, gown, downstairs. At the front
door a beefy policeman accosted her.
"Mis Lucy," he said, shaking off the
rain, "we got a young guy up at th
lockup, who says he owes yen forty

slipped some coins in her hands. "Says
