Big Stone Gap Post (Newspaper) - May 5, 1920, Big Stone Gap, Virginia Supplement to Peninsula Enterprise june 1911.joining the army opportunities that Are open to t the enlisted Man. His pay and his prospects. Even at a private he can run Hie 8alary up to $35 a month and a a Quot noncom he can double that and in time retire Rich and pensioned. There Are Many opportunities open to the Man who enlists in the United states army and wears the uniform of Uncle Sam with Honor to himself and his country. The pay is Good the food is Good and the chances for advancement Are numerous. It is up to the individual Man himself to make Good and to take advantage of the situation. Writing in the columbian Magazine on army affairs Edward Marshall in discussing the status of the enlisted Man says summarized this is what a Man who thinks of marching for his Uncle Samuel As an enlisted Man has to consider on first enlistment the Soldier for old glory nowadays gets $15 a month far better pay for instance than the average clerks for Board lodging and clothing Are furnished by the government. If he qualifies As Marksman he adds $2fto his pay if As a Sharpshooter he gets $3 in addition if As an expert Rifleman a full third More. Thus he May at once get $20 monthly Cash and found if he is Able and keeps Busy. If he enlists As a musician he gets $21 monthly to Start off with the highest a a Rookie so pay. In the signal corps the Hospital corps and the engineers corps first plates privates get $18 monthly and Secoura class private get $15. I upon enlistment every Man is allowed $83.70 for his uniforms Etc., and afterwards $13.54 twice annually. At least one half the men save Money on their clothing allowance which is More than ample. Privates pay increases $3 a month for each three year enlistment an expert Rifleman who never gets to be a Petty officer therefore can run his pay up with Good conduct and intelligence to $35 a month and All his necessaries a a found in five enlistments covering fifteen years. Noncommissioned officers Are taken from the ranks on recommendation of their company or troop commanders and a re often Given their posts upon their first enlistments. These men Are really Well paid. A sergeant major is allotted to each regiment. He receives $45 monthly when he is appointed and $4 additional per month each time he re enlists. Regimental commissary sergeants. Regimental quartermasters sergeants and the three battalion sergeants in each regiment get the same High pay. Each company has a first sergeant at $45. With an increase of $4 upon re enlistments a second sergeant at $36, with $3 increase for each re enlistment a Corporal at $18, with $3 each for re enlistments. The government acts As banker for the soldiers too if they desire to have it and noncommissioned officers have left the service with As much As $20,000 saved a not one but Many. If he Sticks tight to the service for full thirty years a noncommissioned officer is entitled to retirement on pay ranging from one half to three quarters of his service pay. Seventy dollars monthly is not unusual pay for a a a noncom to retire on. And every year of service seen outside the United states counts As two years at a Home Post a Man therefore after fifteen years of service in the islands May retire on Bis half pay. The food the a none oms and the other enlisted men a Are Given is wholesome acid Well cooked the medical attendance free and Able Post and Garrison schools have been provided at All posts for the primary branches and at several posts Trade schools have been established. A worthy Man no matter where he May be stationed is almost certain to get Transfer to a a school Post Quot if he asks for it cooking baking blacksmithing veterinary surgery electrical and stationary engineering All Are taught at these Trade schools As Well As Many other things. Thus a boy who has had Little Chance to get an education May after he has joined the army get a very Good one. There seems to be but one thing which army life does not offer to the enlisted Man. But that one thing is Home. In its degree indeed the life of the enlisted Man now offers More inducements than the life of the West Pointer. The commissioned officers pay is Small when his expenses and the Effort he must make to get commissioned Are considered and furthermore the noncommissioned officer is not so subject to political influences As the West Pointer who gives him his commands. Oysters As rat traps catching rats with Oyster shell9 is the unique method employed by some Pearler round about Broome Western Australia.

But in the same journal of sept. 18, 17s8, there is an advertisement of an auction Sale of a farm on a Burleston neck Between three and four Miles from the City adjoining Cochrane a shipyard bounding in part on shipyard Creek which after describing the different items of property included in the Sale states that Quot there is lately erected that pleasing and genteel amusement the Golf this certainly indicates that Golf was one of the local amusements of that Day.

Form of a Creto ent do you know Why Vienna Rolls Are shaped like crescents the Story forms one of the great a a ifs of history. Solyman the magnificent Sultan of Turkey planned to overrun Europe even As he and his moslem predecessors had seized the countries of the Orient with a mighty army he captured the fortified Island of Rhodes and invaded Hungary annihilating the Magyar forces at Mohapp in 1526 and slaying the hungarian King. So successful was the first expedition that he planned a second and More far reaching raid in .1529. Moving Onward almost unchecked and carrying All before him he captured Buda and advanced against the City of Vienna. All Europe stood aghast nothing had been Able to Stem a the wave of moslem Conquest men remembered How one Eastern Laud after another bad been seized by the Mohammedan hordes and forced to adopt mohammedanism As their religion. People trembled for the Fate of Christendom it seemed for a moment almost possible that the whole Eastern Section of the european continent might fall victim to the Turk and become part of the moslem possessions. To Hope for clemency from Solyman was to rely upon the mercy of the merciless. Conquering one Christian army and stronghold after another the sultans All powerful army threatened to carry destruction and mohammedanism throughout the continent. It was one of fates big movements. moved the turks. Vienna then capital of the German Empire stood in their path a seemingly frail Obsta Cle Between such a Host and the rest of Europe. Should Vienna fall before the moslem Onset the Progress of the sultans army would be made far easier and other lesser cities would lose heart. The inhabitants of Vienna were at that time More renowned for culture and Thrift than for warfare. Yet under Nicholas Van Salon they gallantly proposed to defend their City against the foe Aud to fight to the last gasp for their imperilled Homes. The turks Drew near destroying Vienna a suburbs and encamped close to the town itself. It was on sept 27, 1529, that the enormous turkish Host Laid siege to Vienna Solyman conducting the affair in person. Before risking useless loss of life in a general assault the Sultan tried to make an Entrance into the City by Means of tunnels. His soldiers were set to work a Ltd pick and Spade to dig a secret underground Way into Vienna by which a body of men might later pour into the place and thus catch the defenders a Between two fires.�?�. The cleverness of the turkish engineers and the countless workers at their command made the task a Swift one. Here it was that an a a if intervened to save the threatened capital and perhaps Europe As Well. Some Vienna Bakers were at work one night so the Story runs in a cellar making bread for the Garrison. During a pause in their conversation one of the Bakers happened to hear the muffled sound of digging it seemed to come from a spot not far beyond one of the cellar Walls. Guessing at once that the enemy was tunnelling a Way into the City the Bakers rushed out and gave the alarm. The Garrison aroused was Able to baffle Soly Many a plan. The Sultan falling at strategy next tried Force. He hurled his army against the City in one fierce assault after another. The viennese fought like heroes. Each attack was repulsed with terrific loss to the turks. For four entire Days the moslem assailed the City fresh detachments Ever Tak ing the places of those who reeled Back Defeated. the fifth Day of the As Saulic oct. 14, Solyman gave up the attempt to crush Vienna. He withdrew sullenly from the scene of his de feat leaving 80,000 dead turks on the Field. The Price of Conquest was for once too High for him. Vienna was saved and not Only Vienna but Europe. Vienna bad been Europe a Barrier against the turks farther Advance and the Barrier held firm. The Northern limit of Europe a turkish raids was reached. Once More in later years Vienna was besieged by the moslem and she again beat them off. The High tide of such invasion had come and receded. Europe at Large was now forever secure from this Long dreaded foe. In the moment of Victory according to the account the Bakers who had Given the alarm were not forgotten. To commemorate the event they and their descendants thenceforth folded their Rolls into the shape of a Crescent the sacred Emblem of Turkey. The custom prevails to this Day. Few americans who Are used to seeing Crescent shaped Vienna Rolls have any idea now such Rolls first came to be thu9 twisted nor what great deed the Crescent form Cago inter Ocean.

Were cruelly Long and others were models of Brevity. Sermons Are not so lengthy As they used to be and one Seldom sees in the comic prints the joke so familiar in other times wherein the minister was chided for his Quot fourteen Hlyn remark which was supposed to Mark a period in his Sermon somewhat toward its close. It is said that Thomaa Hooker thought his duty 111 performed if his Sermon did not consume tree hours. Once it is related that the rumours divine did deliver a neatly Short ser Mon preaching exactly a teen min utes. He sat Down but after a Brief rest was up und at it Agi Lii or two hours More. Every one of c ran Mere a sermons was a Small volume in itself and Bunyan Calvin Baxter and Knox Are All said to have been Only a Little More merciful to their hearers. In striking contrast to these Long winded discourses May be mentioned some startlingly Brief sermons of late years. Perhaps the shortest of All was that delivered by a Clergyman at Ocean Grove n. J., who after announcing his text impressively surveyed his congregation and then said a a done to worry its he then sat Down. It would be difficult to exceed this in Brevity and effectiveness but a North of England vicar in the last Century closely approximated it he gave out the text a god so loved the world a Etc., to which he added this observation a my friends did i speak an hour i make that message any plainer. Ill just leave it with another example of a Brief but extraordinarily effective Sermon was furnished by an aged Aud feeble Clergyman in Ohio. He had been requested to deliver a Charity address on behalf of orphan children but his strength was unequal to the task. It was therefore an inspiration indeed that moved him to stretch Forth one feeble Arm la the direction of the Little unfortunates sitting near the pulpit and to exclaim with no Little pathos Quot whence shall we Hud bread that these May eat Quot so impressed was the Cong Regalon that the collection was the largest Ever taken in that rec Ord Lerald.

Plant culture. Don t do the watering not in the evening just before dark. The following article wus prepared by representatives of the National Council of horticulture to stimulate interest in gardening while plants can stand great extremes la temperature corresponding extremes in moisture surely will tend to ruin if not to kill the strongest of them. Water should be Given Only when needed then in such Quantity that the soil is soaked. Soft stemmed plants especially those with Large leaves need much More water than hard wooded growing varieties and while the former kind easily recover from drought the latter usually suffer permanent injury from extremes. Heavy Clayey soils sour easily while Light Loamy soils dry out quickly and unless carefully watched the plants in such soil soon will Wilt. In either Case it is better to water thoroughly and Only when needed than to water sparingly and often. The season and time of Day should be considered in watering. Plants not in Active growth should be watered sparingly until they have regained their foliage. Watering in the evening just before dark will greatly Aid the growth of fungus diseases As the foliage will continue wet through the night it also causes a damping off Quot of Young cuttings and plants. Never water during heavy Cloudy weather. Sash doors blinds. Have you Eddy ? an physical strains. Men Over forty five should take no excessive exercise. The physical decay of men Over forty must to More frequently mentioned lest we forget the fact that our physique was evolved for Only thirty five or forty years of strenuous use says american Medicine. It was not so Long ago that forty five was extreme old age counting time in the Large Way of evolution. Lengthening of life has been possible Only because civilization has let no the physical strains so if we continue them we must expect to break As of old. Athletes Stop their efforts merely because they Are beaten by younger men but the Nona Bletl seem to think that it is necessary to keep up excessive exercise though the tissues simply cannot stand it. There is then no mystery in the Large number of damaged hearts now being found and they will continue to increase in number and severity until the medical profession succeeds in impressing the lesson. Let us repeat it Over and Over again until every Man Over forty or forty five realizes that he has lived his allotted time of physical vigor and must ease up the strains to retain his health. There is no reason except abuse Why so Many men break at fifty five or sixty. They should be healthy until seventy or seventy five and it is our duty to show How. Musical sounds and noise it is n curious fact that musical sounds Fly farther and Are heard at a greater distance than those which Are More loud Aud noisy. If we go on the outside of a town during a fair at the distance of a mile we hear the musical instruments but the Din of the multitude which is so overpowering in the place can scarcely he heard the noise dying on the spot. To those who Are conversant with the Power of musical instruments the following observations will be understood the violins made at Cremona about the year 1000 Are Superior in tone to any of a later Date age seeming to dispossess them of their noisy qualities and leaving nothing but the pure tone. If a modern violin is played by the Side of one of those instruments it will appear much the louder of the two but on receding a Hundred paces when compared with the Cremona it will scarcely be heard.
