"Long May It Wave Now that Jim Vardaman and Cole Blease have been retired to private life, here's hoping that Jim Reed will be next.: W. S. S. Outside, ff his great wealth accum ulated in a short period, can any one tell why Henry Foid should be con sidered big enough for senatorial tim ber?;. w. s. s Gen. Pershing's prediction of "Hea ven, Hell or Hobokeri Before Christ mas," has been "changed to "Heaven, Hell or German Territory Before Christmas." We wish it could be Berlin instead! w. -s. s. The allies are back almost to the original Hindenburg line, and in a few instances have gone beyond that line. Soon the Rhine will be reached, then Fritz will let out a howl that can be heard from Amsterdam to Yuba dam. w. s. S- The Republicans of Michigan evi dently do not relish the idea of a Democratic president attempting to dictate the nomination of a United States Senator for them. Result Henry Ford did not run much of a race on the Republican ticket. w. s. s. The primaries in Illinois will take place shortly. If the Republicans of that state expect to hold their place amongst the loyal citizenship of the country, Billy Mason and old Bill Thompson will be buried even deeper than Cole Blease was in South Caro lina. w. SS. J.. Ham Lewis, the, gentleman with the "pink" whiskers, is on the Demo cratic ticket for United States Sena tor from Illinois. While the State is not very proud of J. Ham, yet he is a credit to such characters as Sher man and Mason, Republicans. W. S. S Just because "Grandpap voted that way" is no excuse for you to continue in his footsteps. Vote for the man wno will agree to do all in his power to prosecute this war to a victorious end, and to strengthen the hands of our boys who have gone, or are going "over there." w. s. s We take back all theunkind things we ever thought 'about Mississippi and South Caraolina.' With the re tirement of the long haired gentleman of the former state, and the defeat of Cole Blease in the lattr, it looks as if there was good reason to look for ward to the retirement of freaks and demagogues in those two old com monwealths. w. s. s. Hats off to South Carolina. Sne has no room for slackers and pro Germans either. The notorious Cole Blease "got his" in the primary in that state last Tuesday, and is buried so deep, politically, that it is hoped h!e will never be resurrected to be come a stench in the nostrils of the patriotic people, of that common wealth. W. s. s t It is plainly evident that the good citizenship of Missouri is not to be trifled with any longer. At the re cent primaries in that state, Dorsey W. Shackelford, a man who has been about as big a nuisance as Claude Kitchen, was defeated for renomina tion for congress,a nd that in a dis tnct which contains a large German population. Other pro-Germans would do well to beware. w. s. s. A "0n, to Berlin" is still the cry of the allies. The Bristsh have dealt th eHuns some staggering blows dur ing the past week, and the French have kept up their good work. The Americans have been taken out of the British and French armies and put into a strictly United States ar my. Just where they are, or what ,,ty-j"rgetting ready t0 d0 nobody outside the commanders seem to know But just wait until they break loose again. ? 3. S. Tvganton Herald of last week publisheda piece of poetry under the heading "What to- dS With the J&E ser, and marked author unknown, imsr poetry was wr cten by Mr. F. D. T Amburgh. editor of the Silent Part ner, We have taken this little pe riodical for some years, ana nnait a o,io omo fnr hliips. It is filled to overflowing with good, sound, whole some advice, and genuine American ism. The above poem was published in the NEWS on Nov. 23, 1917, un der its correct title, "Let Him Live, and credited to Mr. Amburgn. w. s. s. Id hp a irood time for the citizenship of the United" States to unite on the best material ior con gressmen and United States Senators from the various States which elect this year. If your party has been un wise enough to nominate somebody whose whole heart is not in favor of vigorously, prosecuting this war to a victorious end, and who will not agree to do all in his power to strengtnen the hands of the administration in the program outlined, then you owe it to yourself and ttte American inuhuh, well as the boys who have gone to France, and others yet to go, to cast your vote for the nominee of the other party if he is a genuine American. The United States is greater than any man, set of men, or any political par ty. The time for "yaller dog" poli tics has ended, and it is the duty of everv genuine ' American to vote for the MAN and not THE POLITICAL PARTY. w. s. s. FOURTH LIBERTY LOAN. Mr. F. P. Bacon, of Tryon has been selected as County Chairman for the Fourth Liberty Loan campaign, and announces the following membership of the various committees: F. P. Bacon, Chairman, Geo. A. Branscom.

Telegrams, Wednesday, told of the death of Senator Ollie James of Ken tucky, at Johns Hopkins Hospital Bal timore, where he had been for the past fewnonths undergoing treat ment for kidney alFection. Senator James was, physically, big gest man in the Un;Ul States Sen ate. Having known Ollie James since a boy, we venture the assertion that his heart, was, figuvatrxly, as big as his body. Our first acquaintance wth Ollie James was as a school boy in his na tive town of Marion, Ky. He was while quite young appointed as a page in the Kentucky legislature, and there acquired a taste for poli tics which taste was not satisfied un til he was elected United States Sen ator. While possessing nothing but a common school education, yet he was quick of perception, a great read er of history, and but few public men were better posted along these lines than Ollie. While never agreeing with him politically, yet a personal friendship always existed, and it is with deep regret that we learn of his death. His father, L. H. James, was a sol dier in the Federal army during the civil war, and is a practicing attorney in Marion, Ky. The business manager, Mr. Bush, and his sister, Mrs. Copeland, were childhood associates of Senator James. w. s. s. SUBMARINES OFF OUR COAST. Many people of the United States, and particularly of our Southern Seacoast States, feel somewhat ap prehensive over the fact that German U-boats have appeared off the coast of this country. While it is something that a great many s of our people thought impos sible, no one should allow this thought to gain too much headway, for it is admitted by men who are in a position to know, that it is much easier for submarines to operate on the American side of the Atlantic, than on the European sinde. The reason for this is obvious; on this side there is no such restricted area wherein U-boats must do their dirty "work, the sea coast of the United States is so extensive that to keep these pirates in any. one section would require all the ships in the Navy. ; The. ships which have been sunk by these submarines are a loss, a distinct loss, no one can or will try to deny that, and it is regretablt that we can not report the capture or sinking of any of the German submarines. However, and this is very impor tant; the sinkings of the submarines so far, have been of absolutely no mil itary value to them, nor loss to us. We are going to lose some ships in this war, doubtless more will be de stroyed on this side of the ocean, but as long as the Navy can hold these losses to a few fishing boats, and a light ship or two, no one need worry greatly over the submarine menace to the United States. The Navy is taking steps to stop even these losses, and to make the work of the Germans increasingly hard, even so far as comparatively unimportant ships are concerned; but ,the main efforts of the Navy will con tinue to be as they have been herero fore, to convoy safely overseas, our troop ships, and .the ships which are carrying food and supplies to bur sol diers and the allies. So long as the boys in blue contin ue to protect these vitally important and necessary ships, taking our mil lions of soldiers to France without the loss of a single man, carrying food, munitions and supplies to our allies, as they have in the past, we at home can accept the sinking of these few small, relatively unimportant ships as a misfortune, but not a reason for worry or pessimism. TRYON Miss Corwin, of New York, is tne guest of her uncle, Mr. C. S. Corwin. Mrs. C. P. Wilson returned home Wednesday,' after a visit with Ashe ville friends. Mies Dnrothv Doubledav has re turned home from a visit to friends at Peoria, 111. Mr.. E. M. Walker, of Terre Haute, Ind., arrived in Tryon, Friday, on a short visit to relatives. Lieut. Nelson Jackson and Mrs. Jackson came up from Columbia and spent Sunday in Tryon. Mr. J. T. Green has purchased the plant of the Tryon Lumber Co., and taken charge of same. Married, Wednesday, Aug,- 28, by Magistrate R. A. Leonard, Mr. Krider Ross to Miss Florence Hardin. Chairman B. L. Ballenger an nounces that the next War Savings Drive in this county will be the week of Sept. 9-15. Mr. Embury and Miss Mary Em bury returned Wednesday. Miss Em bury, although still weak frpm her long illness, is recovering. Rev, Mr. H. N. Bowne and wife, of Biltmore, were in Tryon for a short stay Tuesday. This is their first vis it to Tryon since going to Biltmore. Miss Ruth McFee left for Asheville Tuesday, and after a short visit there will go on to Knoxville to look over fall millinery styles and purchase a stock of same. " A young man with too much confi dence in a five feet by two post-office window pane, leaned up against it the other day. The lower third was al ready gone, and a crash followed that made the neighborhood think the Huns were attacking the town. County Chairman B. L. Ballenger says you may be asked by your town ship chairman to devote one or more days solid time to the war savings stamp drive. Don't refuse, for there is nothing so important. If all will do their duty Polk county will go over the top. Tryon Graded. School will not be gin until the second Monday in Sep tember, so we are informed by Mr. Geo. A. Gash, of the board of trus tees, and may not then, all depending upon getting a teacher to take the place of Miss Brown, who resigned at the eleventh hour. It was hoped that Mr. Edwin Wal ker, who is visiting with his wife, her parents, Mr. and Mrs. J; N. Jackson, would have sung at the trench or phan lawn party Tuesday evening, but he was absent from town. Music lovers count on hearing his fine voice before he finishes his vacation. North Carolina and Polk county are not the only communities with sheep and dog troubles. The other night the dogs killed a thousand dol lars worth of sheep at Bloomfiend Hills, a suburb of Detroit, and the residence of Mr. urady, Admiral and Mrs. Berry, Miss Cutcheon, Miss Florence Grant and other well known Tryon visitors. We are in receipt of a letter an nouncing the marriage at Norfolk, Va., of Miss Claudine Lee to Mr. Finer Henrick Magnussen, both of Savannah, Ga. Miss Lee will be re membered by many Polk county peo ple as a former student at Saluda Seminary. Mr. Magnussen is serving in the U. S. Marine corps. The cer emony was performed in Scandina vian Lutheran church by Rev. G. G. Blensheim. Once more we must call attention to the fact that if changes are desir ed in the advertisements, copy for same should be brought in on Monday and no later than Tuesday morning under any circumstances. It is a matter of physical impossibility to ar range all copy, set the matter and get ready for press on Wednesday and Thursday morning, and have a lot of advertisements to change. Tlease do' not ask it. Mr. R. F. McFee desires to an nounce that next Tuesday is clean-up day at the city cemetery. Everybody is requested to be on hand and help in this needed work. If it is impossi ble to be there, then do the next best thing and send a hand. Mr. McFee is pretty well disgusted at the attitude of the people of Tryon regarding their cemetery. It certainly presents a much neglected appearance just now. Surely our people should have more respect for the ones buried there than to allow the grounds to fall into ab solute neglect. Be on hand next Tuesday. W. S. b REMARKABLE RECORD. Levi Butler who is "over there" with the American army, writes back to Tryon relatives that the company of which he is a member, was engaged in an entire week's fighting, and that not a single man was killed, and only a few received minor injuries. That is cheering news. Here's hop ing that they may go through the en tire campaign with no more serious results. CAPTURES COUSIN IN RAID American Soldier Grabs Relative In Attack on the Hun Trenches. Hackensack, N. J.
