"The correspondent of the Echoes
Is a stranger to all except some for-
mer Blue Grass people has never
had the privilege of meeting the
editor though here's hopin. She has
never turned very many of our
screeds down. The greatest offense
she ever committed was to cut up
the account ot a play which we were
giving tor the Christmas tree benefit
until the actors hardly knew it. Now.
had she lived in the rural communi
ties where this kind of an entertain-
ment is our almost only diversion
she would have thought twice before
she allowed the glowing euloglsm ot
our budding actors to meet such
Ignonlmous fate and this too. Is one
of the ways we pay our social debts
you know and after we had spent
so much gray matter in getting Just
the right share of praise to each one.
Do you wonder we were all disap-
pointed? But we are long Buffering
so we swallowed our pride and have
retaliated by trying to send Just as
big a news letter as we could. Now
our editor may be a little peppery
sometimes and she and our Brother
Tooker do not figuratively speaking
"dwell together In unity." hut she's
all right anyway. Anyone with an
unprejudiced mind cannot fall to see
the good she is doing for humanity
for our soldier boys thru the columns
of the Herald.
Scarcely a soldier bov but does not
reiterate in letter or thru the press
the value they put upon receiving the
home paper nj our editor not only
devotes valuable space to many let
ters but sends the paper gratis to
many who are now In the camps.
We are organizing onr neighbor
hood as best we can so that we may
send a more complete neighborhood
letter to our boys from Blue Grass
or who were former Blue Grass boys.
To this end we ask that our friends
call us or send us Items of Interest.
Now everybody knows whom to call
of course. Your correspondent will
have to stand sponsor for what you
write so use care but It you should
do such an unheard ot thing as to
write about the chauffeur departing
with the cook say it's alleged such
and such etc. that will save us both.
Now. the next thing to do to com-
plete this chain is to subscribe for
the Herald. Let's assist our editor
to make this the best year in every
way. Probably if all the communi-
ties fall into lino and send her large
news letters she will in self-defense
have to purchase a linotype then she
won't have to send her work out of
town. .Here's success to the Herald.
(NOTE: Indeed this Is the first
knowledge the editor of The Herald
bad that the blue pencil had been
pushed so vigorously on the account
of tho aforesaid theatricals. Wo
don't blame the correspondent and
her "budding actors" for resenting
the matter. The act must have been
committed during our absence from
tho office when the printer grew tired
(as they sometimes do) and just de-
cided to eliminate risking "getting
by" That he was successful is
shown. We appreciate your good
words nnd It is certainly our ambi-
tion to merit a continuation ot the
same. What little we have been able
to do we have done gladly and free-
ly and wo will continue for we
realize that the boys "Somewhere In
France" are fighting not to save their
own life but among other things to
save the women anu cnuaren ui
America from the ravishing which
crushed those of Belgium and France.
AH that we can do is but small com-
pensation for what they are doing
for us. Editor.)

DISCU8HED AND CU8SEI)
The editor of The Herald has been
discussed and we venture cussed
because of our effort to raise money
for the "Our Boys In France Tobacco
Fund." Some say the money could
be spent to better advantage that the
tobawo don't do the boys any good
and this and that pro and con. Now
so far as the editor of The Herald
Is concerned we never used thera
"weed" but we had a father and two f
brothers who could make about as
constant a Job of It as anybody you
ever saw and personally we didn't
approve but depriving a man at
home of tobacco and attempting to
break him of a filthy habit Is quite
another thing than keeping It away
from the man "Somewhere In
France" who has formed the habit
wants the tobacco In fact needs It
and can't procure It for money on
tho foreign field. It Is a mighty poor
time in our estimation to break a
man of the tobacco habit when he Is
In the front line trenches ready to
"go over the top" at the drop of the
hat and who needs that smoke as
much as he needs bis bayonet to
steady his nerve a bit so that he
might "get" the Hun before he "gets"
him. In civilian life we are not for
tobacco In any form not on your
life but in war ft Is quite a differ-
ent matter. We aro for anything
that is going to make it one whit
easier for the Sammies who are over
there ready and willing to make the
supreme sacrifice tor us.
