THE WrAR MEMORIAL
In compliance with. Mayor Chaoe's
request for suggestions for a fitting
memorial, and as there is agitation
all over the country as to what form
the memorial should take, it seems
to me now is the proper time to in interest
terest interest the city and county people in
taking definite action on the subject.
A war memorial should occupy a
conspicuous place in the town, and as
the lot whereon the library is sit situated
uated situated and which is known as the civic
center is centrally located, it would
seem the proper plan to erect a me memorial
morial memorial there to our brave soldiers and
The form, the memorial should take,
to my mind, would be a beautiful,
small' fountain, in the center of the
lot, and the surrounding space to be
UeautifiecT with" fTovers7 te4-and lept
up as a tribute to our brave boys.
With our beautiful little library
building and attractive new-rest room
in place- of the old building on the
southwest corner, which could also
could be used as a community room,
the civic center would be a .source of

ROBERT SAW VERDUN
Mrs. J. R. Moorhead has received
the following letter from her son,
Sergeant Robert Moorhead, now sta-
ioned at St. Mihiel: -I
took a-wonderful trip yesterday.
Twojfriends and I secured one of
Uncle. Sam's autoes (Ford) and went
up to Verdun. I wished for you
folks, for it was wonderful. We drove
two or. three miles "beyond Verdun to
the top of a large hill. There we left
cur flivver and strolled over the fiejds
of wreckage where the greatest of
battles in the greatest of wars was
fought- What a sight! At times I
have an unlimited amount of imagina
tion, and as I stood looking upon the
ground which was liberally shot to
pieces my imagination played havoc
with me. Each helmet with a hole in
it had a story for tne as well as each
piece of shrapnel. Here and there
were old pieces of guns, many shells
and other wreckage.
But more frequent than anything
else were the graves (only a pile of
dirt.with a cross erected above it.) On
the cross was nailed a colored em
blem with the French colors and a tag
with 3 soldier's name. But countless
numbers of them with name unknown.
French family were searching the
field looking at the graves. I won
dered did .they find" "theirs." Along
the roadside, right in the gutter, were
many graves. Then we saw two cem
eteries,' merely a large space filled
with crosses and Oh! how many of
them. You have read a great deal of
Verdun so have I. Now I've seen it
after the bloody work was done and
if I should give way to my imagina imagination
tion imagination I too would write of it. I never
dreamed that land shot and torn up
as much as that land", could yet re
main together, intact. We did not go
farenough to get any German hel helmets,
mets, helmets, tho I will next time. Have lots
of chances to buy them cheap, but I
want to find them myself. Did bring
back quite a few shells, a French hel
met with several holes in it and a
French rifle I found on the fields.
We visited what l was once the
French hospital St.- Mihiel and
found it, of course, completely de destroyed.

The city council of Jacksonville is
moving in the matter of having a
Florida centennial in the year 1921,
.,the centenary of the year when Spain
ratified the treaty by which Florida
became part of the United States.
The Star suggested a few days ago
that the state fair at Jacksonville this
autumn be made a centennial fair. Iv
might be better, however, to 'wait and
hold a centennial exposition in Feb-1
ruary, 1921. That would be the best
time in the year to hold it and if the
people of the state will get together
and work for such a celebration they
could make it a grand occasion, and
one that would make Florida famous
all over this continent.
In regard to taxation, the legisla legislature

Tho Best Way, to Treat
BY S. C. BABCOCK, M. D
The medical books name many drugs
that will move the bowel3. The drug store
shelves are loaded down with laxatives,
purgatives and pills.' Thfe trouble with
most of them is the after-eflecte. Con Constipated
stipated Constipated people know that pills work all
right for a little while, but they soon lose
their effect, and a change has to be made
to something else. ; The constant taking of
pills results in a form of bowel inactivity
that is difficult to cure. The system be becomes
comes becomes so accustomed to laxative drugs
that the organs just won't work without
them, and so the pill habit becomes as bad
as constipation itself. Dr. Pierce, of Buf Buffalo,
falo, Buffalo, N. Y., seems to me to have the right
idea. He savs the bowels should first be
gently moved with Pierce's Pleasant Pel Pellets,
lets, Pellets, and in the meantime laxative foods
'only should be eaten. Figs, prunes, olive
on, spinacn, Dran, vegetables ana iruits are
fine for constipation. Chew every bite
thoroughly, eat little meat, and be as
active as '.possible. Now, doesn't that
seem sensible? Pleasant Pellets will start
the bowels working right; then it is up to
you to keep! them right by right, eating.
Try Pleasant Pellets for sick headache,
coated tongue, biliousness, dizziness, tor torpid
pid torpid liver or to break up a cold. They
are just fine!,
Dr.; Pierce's, Anodyne Pile Ointment
soothes, cools and heals piles in a most
gratifying way. Perhaps there is no other
remedy for thi3 torturing trouble that
relieves so surely and quickly. Dr. Pierce
believes Anodyne Pile Ointment will over overcome
come overcome any case that can be overcome by
medical treatment. Try it right now.
Dr. Pierce's An uric Tablets are intended
for people who suffer from kidney, dis disorderswhose
orderswhose disorderswhose backs ache, and whose
systems are overrun with uric acid. Nearly
everybody has too much c uric acid.
Anuric Tablets dissolve uric acid quickly,
as they are made double strength.
