IX the , midst of a war torn world we are again
" called upon to celebrate Armistice.
This year it will come as a day of reflection.
Those of us who were called from our peaceful
occupations, to. do, what we could in the day of the
world's need certainly went because we believed
that that was the way, the only way, to make peace
to end wars forever. Some of us have come to think
since that a war can never end war. Armistice is
not peace. This has been brought home to us in the
last few months as war with all its horror has been
let loose again. Peace is not the negation of war,
but rather something to be achieved, to be lived,
and worked, and prayed for. The observance of
Armistice Day this year will, emphasize this latter
fact, lii luirope, as . in this country, the Day will
mark a time of united prayer that God will give to
the entire world a peace that is peace in fact as
well as in word.
The one solution, to the World's problems is a
spiritual one. The one way to peace is the ac
knowledgment of the Prince of Peace. Let us in our
own community join in the World Day of Prayer
to Almighty (iod that He will give peace in our

Last Man of a Great Epoch Passes On
YyIE READ, gallant "last man" of the. nation's
rough and tumble.'-literary ..epoch, died last
Thursday, November 2, seven weeks before his
Always jovial, and rarely equaled as a spinner of
yarns, Opie Read lived and worked and laughed
through that writing era-in which flourished such
figures as Mark Twain, Eugene Field, James Whit
comb Riley and Bill Nye..
For some 70 of his 86 years Read Was tramp
printer, editor, novelist and lecturer. He composed
.52 books and hundreds of short stories, and from
1S83 to 1891 was editor of the famous humorous
weekly, the Arkansas Traveler. In print, on the
' platform', and to groups of congenial friends, he
told with salty wit of association with Mark
Twain, Eugene Field, Clarence Darrovv and several
presidents of the United States.
Philosophy and 'rich, humor were for Read a de
fense against worry, fear, old age and the cockeyed
doings of his fellow men whom he loved and
His code was simple. He believed in books, music,
philosophy, poker, fun, a modest drink and a good
dinner, "if it were not for books,", he once said,
"I would have gone insane years ago." Shakespeare
ranked first on his list of indispensable writers.
Opie was always attracted by feminine loveliness.
"I ' still respond to grace and beauty," he said on
his ,84th birthday.
"The Jucklins," one of Read's most dramatic
stories, ran a close second to "The Old Homestead"
in number of performances on the American stage.
Opie Read was 'born in Nashville, Tenn., De
cember 22, 1852. He served his newspaper appren
ticeship on the Franklin, Ky., Patriot, and paid his
tuition at Neophogen College at Gallatin, Tenn.,
by setting type on the college paper. Later he work
ed for the Little Rock Gazette and Cleveland
In 1883 he teamed with Philo D. Benhain at
Little Rock to publish the Arkansas Traveler, later
taking the paper to Chicago where Read made his
There are many oldsters living who remember
the delightful hours spent with "The Kentucky
Colonel," "The Tennessee Judge," "The Jucklins,"
'The Waters of Caney Fork" and other books by
Opie Read, and who feel deep regret at his passing.
Hydrophobia Claims Another Victim .
HYDROPHOBIA has claimed another victim
very near home. Only last week in an Ashe
ville hospital a little Negro boy died in agony in
spite of all that skillful doctors could do for him.
This child was bitten by a pet dog who was ifct
suspected of being mad:
Although science has, as yet, found no cure for
, Managing Editoi
hydrophobia, the Pasteur treatment has saved
thousands from this "most horrible of deaths. Fur
ther, science has found a way to prevent the suf
fering entailed by dumb animals as well as human
beings by the simple expedient of vaccination of
It is a curious fact that the lawv requiring vac
cination of.. dogs against rabies is listed under the
'department 'of agriculture, and not the department
of public health. The law was placed on the statutes
by pressure from owners of stock that were menac
ed by hydrophobia. So the 'protection accorded
human beings as far as law is concerned comes
by way of the necessity of protecting farm animals.
If there are still any who are willing to gamble
on the chance that a dog is not mad, or to be care
less about taking precautions necessary when a
person is bitten by a dog, this case should be a
lesson. First, every person bitten by a (log should
receive immediate treatment. Second, every person
owning a (log should see that it is inoculated
against rabies, for the sake of man and beast.
