“It seems terrible to go on each
day killing men yon do not know,
men for whom you have no personal
hatred, and men you do not even
see," says a German lieutenant of
artillery. “Even at Verdun, where
the fighting is in a very small radms,
it is very rarely that one sees the
enemy. We shoot all day long in a
given direction, we point our guns at
towers, steeples and stone walls, and
they all fall down as though they
were houses made of cards. The
trees are all splinters and there is
nothing left around but rubbish and
piles of stones, and yet it is very sel-
dom even in this barren landscape
that a Frenchman is seen.
“Whenever I order a shot to be
fired on a visible enemy I always
think of the French captain we
found lying in the road near Vaux.
A bullet had gone through his back
into his breast, which was swollen in
a great lump. Por three days he had
been lying there, beside a dead man
who had lost both legs. My men
went over to him and gave •fiim hot
coffee and sonje bread. His thanks
were most pitiful. He tried to kis^
their hands and he insisted on giv-
ing one fellow his sword. Words
cannot tell the agony he must have
suffered in those three days. We
had no time to do anything more for
him—we did not even have time for
our own men—but later I found our
sanitas people took him to a field
hospital. Our men who got acquaint-
ed with him said fie was a splendid
Belgium may be little, but she
has some mighty big friends.

“Bill” Hartman, of the Sioux
City Live Stock Record, resurrects
the following from an August cal-
ender. “Behold thei Fisherman!
He riseth up early in the morning
•and disturbeth the whole house-
hold. Mighty are his preparations.
When the day is far spent, he re-
turneth smelling of strong drink,
and.the truth is not in him.”
Notice to the Public.
Sinton, Texas, Aug 30, 191 7.
To Whom it May Concern:
There seems to be some misap-
prehension on the part of some
relative to the report that a bill has
been introduced in the Legisla-
ture abolishing the office of County
Superintendent. The newspapers
so reported it, and the matter has
caused considerable inquiry. Con-
cerning same, I wish to state that
no such bill has been introduced
in the Legislature.
As the public knows, County
Superintendent C. E. Wade has
been accepted by the local Board
of Exemption for Military Service,
under the selective draft act. He
has appealed to the District Board
at Houston, and has filed with
that Board an application for dis-
charge on the ground of being
head of the Educational System of
San Patricio County. Several of
the citizens of the County, appre-
ciating Mr. Wade’s worth as a
school man, and the progressive
spirit that has actuated him during
his occupancy of the office, have
signed applications for his dis-
charge on that ground. Those ap-
plications are now pending be-
fore the District Board at Houston.
I have made application myself,
as County Judge, for his discharge,
and my application in his behalf
is now pending before the District
Board at Houston.
With the prospect of having to
select another County Superintend-
ent to take the place of Mr. Wade
confronting the court, certain mem-
bers of the commissioners court
expressed a desire to re-unite the
office with that of County Judge
should Mr. Wade be called away,
in view of the fact that the last
Legislature made Odem and Sinton
Independent, and took them from
under the direct supervision of the
County Superintendent, and leav-
ing only 1374 scholastics in the
county under the direct supervis-
ion of the County Superintendent,
the remaining I 635 scholastics of
the county being enrolled in Inde-
pendent Districts.
Accordingly a bill was intro-
duced in the Legislature authoriz-
ing the Commissioners Court, in
its discretion, to re-unite the office
with that of the County Judge, so
that if Mr. Wade should be called
away, and the Commissioners
Court as a whole so desired, the
office could be re-united with that
of County .Judge. The bill in no
way reflects on Mr. Wade, but is
for the purpose of taking care of
a contingency based upon Mr.
Wade’s possible acceptance for
military service, thus creating a
vacancy in his office.
I take this method of expressing
my appreciation of Mr. Wade’s
services as County Superintendent.
He is an earnest, enthusiastic and
efficient school man, and has filled
his office thus far with dignity and
credit to himself, and to the
County, and I desire very much
that he be continued as head of
the Educational System of San Pa- i
tricio County.
M. A. Childers.
“Is your husband difficult to please
in the matter of dress?”
j “Very. Wfign I get a gown that
he likes he doesn’t like the bill, and
when the bill suits him he doesn’t
care a rap for the gown.”
Americans use too much heat.
Their houses are too warm. They
don’t get enough of the cold in win-
ter to strengthen their bodies, ac-
cording to Dr. Arthur Still Craig,
in the Osteopathic Magazine. His
article is timely because of the rapid
approach of fall.
“In England, France and Ger-
many a great deal less artificial heat
is used than in this country,” he
says, “reducing the amount of sick-
ness and of money spent for coal.
This economy is a splendid disease
preventive. This is not a mere va-
gary of mine; I have tested this the-
ory in part and expect to carry it
out at fuller length.” .
