night on Picturesque Public Men
which was very interesting Mr.

for the last generation gaining a

I men as Tom Reed, J. G. Blaine.
Chas. F. crisp, Sam J. Randall,
Jno. T. Carlisle, Wm, F. Vilas,
and all thecongressional lights of
this age. His tribute to Claude
Kitchin was splendid Mr. Clark
is decidedly the biggest man who
has ever visited Williamston and
he has left impressions to bear
upon the minds of our citizens
for some time to come.
Dead, our dear one dead!
Why should our eyes grow dim?
Choke back the tears, we will
Be proud and glad.
No black upon our service flag
Our country called
We gave all we had.
Now that this brave young spirit
paid the prhe,, ®
Now that he has made the last
In Gods' celestial legions now
Change we the azure star to
gleaming gold. T
So may his spirit shining thru
Over our land of freedom far
Enkindle in all hearts an equal
For love and truth, for which he
fought and died,
He left his home in perfect health
He looked so young
We little thought how soon he'd be
Hfkin a soldiers grave.
Out Beneath the Lillies of France
he is lying
The silent stars in love look
down and see
What a glory was his in dying
For Liberty, Country and God.

7- Letter From Prance
Am E. F France
October 2fith , lOIH.
Trusting that you will find a
small corner in the "good old En
terprise" forthe following-mes
sage to my friends.
How very very much I would
like to write to each of you and
tell each personally how much I
appreciate your thoughts of one
who is quite a far way from you.
But should I undertake such a
task, (for task it would be as I
have so many who are my friends
in old Martin County), I am a
fraid that 1 would not have time
for any other duties.
You will please take this mess
age, each one of yon, as* a per
sonal letter from me and know
that although 1 have not written
to you, 1 am constantly thinking
of all and I am only waiting for
that glorious day when 1 shall be
back with you once again.
Since leaving the States, July
23rd., 1917, 1 have had many
varied experiences which would
interest all to a certain extent, 1
am sure, but especially those
who know something about the
aviation gam\ Some day 1 hope
to he able to relate them to you.
I am very glad to be able to
say that I am well, happy and
getting al«ng very well in every
respect. The only thing 1 would
have you do to give me mure
pleasure is for each one of you to
write me a long letter telling me
all the news, Do not think that
you do not know anything to
tell me for I would be so very
interested in anything at alkFor
instance, how did the crops turn
out? Were the prices good? Im
provements going on, And Oh!
just ANYTHING. Remembt r
that I have aim Kst forgot thai

a real American Town; These

those relating to margin* of pro

Profiteering and speculation

Cross will no longer be accepted
in lieu of more drastic actions
Merchants who are found to be
willfully disregarding food rules
and regulations, especially those
relating to margins of profit,
will be put out of business until
normal times come again.
In line with this policy the
Food Administsation has fixed
specific margins upon an increas
ed number of food products.
Their margins are absolute and
any merchant who exceeds them
will be subject to discipline by
the Food Administrator The pro

wash their hands and use other
precautions before leaving the

come in contact with very few

listen! the fellow who gets the
disease is infected from one to
several days before He comes
down. Between the time he gets
the disease germs in his mouth
and the time he gets sick is the
most dangeeous period. During
this time the infected person,
not suspecting how dangerous
he is, goes into crowds at theat
ers, dances, moving picture
shows, on railroad cars, and in
other public places, and there he
scatters the disease germs.
People should know these
facts, and they should also
know that many persons carry
the disease germs in their mouths
who never have the disease. Peo
ple must always be on guard if
they hope to prevent getting

should always use separate
drinking cups, dishes, and tow

they should hold a handkerchief
