The war is throwing a tremendous burden upon the newspapers of the ''''ntiy. Many of them are laboring under financial difficulties which les sen the mental and physical power of t''ir publishers to do as much as they would like to do in behalf of the war. i he newspapers are the spokesmen of tl" nation. They must voice its thoutrht in hrhnlf nf war nnr! acainst a piTmature peace. They must give he news from the battlefield and the !ng list of casualties which will fjtx-adily increase from day to day. Ihey must spend more for telegraph tolls than they have ever done in the past. Their paper bill. is doubled, and m some cases more than doubled. All ether expenses connected with their "?rk have increased. And yet day alU j day these papers must go on as the v-ry pulse of the nation, strained sometimes almost to the point of "'faking because of the burdens winch they face in lessened supply of m n and increased expenses. We know the difficulties of carrying on work under the lessened supply of labor, for with a large proportion of owi" young men out of our business oihee now in the Armv and the Navy, with a shortage of printers which wakes printing a difficulty such as to unng gray hairs to the' managers of a'l printing work, and even for work tne circulation and business, depart nents.

Monday last, twenty-four of Polk county's loyal young men, tnose wno have reached the age of 21 since June 5, 1917, gathered in Tryon, pre paratory to entraining ior vm Jackson. They were given a recep tion at Missildme Hall., were delivered by Col. Earle, U- b. Army; Lieut. J. B. Copeland, U. S. Navy; Senator T. T. Ballenger; Drr M L Taft, President of Polk County Red Cross, and Mr. G. H. Bell, presid ing officer of the Junior Order, under whom the reception was tendered, and of which order several of the depart ing voung men were members. Not a long face, or sad expression was visible upon, the faces of that bunch of determined Americans, but tte old familiar "Do or Die" resolve was plainly in evidence- Good luck to you boys, and may the Great .God watch over you. O Columbia, the;genn of the ocean, The home of the brave and free, The shrine of-oftcn p&triprs dvotion, A world offers homage to thee. Thy mandates make heroes assemble, "When Liberty's form stands in view; Thy banners make tyranny tremble, When borne by the red, white and blue. When borne by the red, white and blue. When borne by the red, white and blue. Thy banners make tyranny tremble When borne by the red, white and blue. When war winged its wide desolation, And threatened the land to deform, The ark then of freedom's foundation, Columbia, rode safe through the storm: With the garlands of victory around her, When so proudly she bore her brave crew, With her flag proudly floating before her, The boast of the red, white and blue; The boast of the red, white and blue; The boast of the" red, white and blue; With her flag proudly floating before her, The boast of the red, white and blue. The star-spangled banner bring hither, O'er Columbia's true sons let it wave, May the wreaths they have won never withei Nor its stars cease to shine on the brave; May thy service, united ne'er sever, But hold to their colors so true; The army any navy forever, Three cheers for the red, white and blue! Three chsers for the red, white and blue! Three cheers for the red, white and blue!
