GEORGE C. PEERY
SENATOR SWANSON AND THE
Senator's Swanson's opponent for
nomination for the Senate, Hon.
Westmoreland Davis, basis his claim
largely upon the farmers bloc plaid;
in his platform. Mr. Davis is mak?
ing special appeal to the farmers as
he ditl in his gubernatorial campaign,
in which he won out, chiefly howev?
er, because of a division of the vote
in the ranks of the party between;
three candidates for the nomination.
Now, however, the situation has
changed materially us to Mr. Davis
chief war cry. A short lime ago Sen?
ator Capper, who succeeded Senator
Kcnyon as leader of the farm bloc
in tile Senate, has appointed Sena?
tor SwnitSOtl a member of the bloc.
This committee, all "hand-picked" by
Senator Capper, will have charge of
all measures relating to tin? agricul?
ture welfare of the country. The
Roanoke Times says that "Senator
Swanson's appointment constitutes a
recognition of Iiis untiring efforts in
behalf of the farming interest;"
Senator Swanson's duties in Wash?
ington, which he has never neglect?
ed in order to make ji canvass of the
state in his own interest, will pre?
clude the possibility of a .personal
canvass this fall. Hut this will pot
be necessary. Since this important
duty as a member of the farm bloc
has been added to his other duticr
his loyal supporters and friends in
Virginia will insure him a sweeping
victory at the polls.
Tins was the subject of the Buc
calcureate .sermon delivered here on
Sunday morning, before the graduat?
ing class of tili' High School, by Rev.
C; W. Dean.
The discourse was pronounced
generally to be timely and interest
ing as well.
He compared conviction tu the
century plant, which blooms only
once in a century. Real conviction is
a rare thing these days. He said con?
viction differed entirely from whims,
desire and even purpose. The word
convince means to hind, as with a
chain. Paul was bound, a man of
conviction. Nothing great can be ac?
complished unless behind a purpose
The young folks of our day seem
(lo bo lacking- positive convictions
Ambition is a great trail properly
controlled and guided. Some one re?
marked here the other day, that our
boys seem to be wanting in ambi?
tion. They are drifting along in a
sort of half hearted manner. It was
noticed that there is not one young
man in the graduating class this
yeuc. Do our boys belong to that
crowd which says, "Oh! well. 1 don't
care. Let it go."
BEGINNING TO FUNCTION.
A few days aj;u a notorious act?
ress, hoping to capitalize her noto?
riety came to New York from Eu?
rope only to be told that she had
been barred from any purl of film
production. Another "star" has bee
notified that his "vindication produc?
tion" would not appear. It appears
that Mr. Will Hays is geling in his
IThc time was but is not now, when
notorious gamblers, night revellers,
women murderers and men and wo?
man with a number of wives and
husbands living, can flaunt them?
selves and their filthy morals before
a decent public. If the picture show
.people and stage managers do not
cut out these undesirables the pub?
lic should protest, if in no other way
by a determined and effectual boy?
cott. Strength to Will Hay's right
Time is here to "work corn," as
we say. Of course, by this expres?
sion we mean, work the ground, not
the corn. The corn should be let
alone. We can't "make the corn
grow," by any effort-. The best that
can he done is to hi it grow by re?
moving hindrances, such as weeds
and crass, hnrd and baked soil, etc.
The object of plowing corn should be
the destruction of weeds and the
loosening of the soil to admit heat
and light, hold and retain moisture.
Work the ground Do not disturb the
com roots. Lei the . t, . alone. So
say the wise farmer:
THE FAILURE AT GENOA.
The Genoa Conference was a suc?
cess only in one direction. It reveal?
ed the colossal amount of selfishness
antl solfseeking on the part of the
"Pence-seekers" of Euro.oe. There
wns a lock, from the start, of the
very essential element of pence?|
"mutual confidence and unselfish-'
About the middle of June another
conference wil! be k*ld at the Hague.
The United States bus been invited
to this conference, but the present!
administration is jiot interested in
the nations outside. "Me. my wife,
my son John and bis wife, us four
and no more."
NEEDS AMEIHCA'S MOUAI. SI P-|
I.ady Astor said, in a farewell ad?
dress at a banquet given in her hon?
or in New York the oilier night:
"I'm nol concerned to say whether
the United States should join the
League ">l Nations, as it exists; Uns
is a question of comparative detail;
but I am convinced that America can
help Kuiopc enormously in ways
which will commend themselves to
all clear and kind thinking Americans
;t they waul to do so. I believe they
do. They need not fear to enter a
icngtic of peace but bad heller fear
not entering if they desire peace."

GEORGE C. PEERY'S SELECTION
A WISE CHOICE.
The following is an excerpt from
I a business letter received ben- this
j I have been pretty well over the
District recently ami things look
i good to me for Gcorgo Peery. We
I made a wise choice in nominating
him. lie is a long ways stronger man
1 than Krank Buchanan. Krank has
[been in a lot of political scraps. (If
course, lie has come out each time
the winner, but all these contests
! make hike warm friends as well as
?ncmies. Now George Peery has not
this t" c intend with. He has a clean
record and has never taken any part
with any of the factions, and all
he factions in the 9th now seems to
be united on him. The 9th District
'ins never been II republican district,
I It hough it. has gone that way. It is
limply the factional differences and
if what I have seen in the 9th dis
tl'icl in the way of disscntions

?ould write many pages le Hing you
sores and had feeling among the de?
mocratic leaders, and I could cite to
v'.u many disloyal nets of same of

'hat has resulted in the loss of the
District to the democrats; so it
teems that we have clear sailing and
George Peery is going to bo elected.
Yours very truly.
SI AM KSK TWINS Ol' TILADE
(From a speech by Senator Under?
1 saw a cartoon in the paper the
other day which showed Siamese
twins fastened together by nature
for life, their bodies grown together,
their hands tied behind their backs,
marching to the block of the oxoeu

paring to execute the one called
"Imports," and some one rose in the
audience and said, "These are Sia?

to foreign countries unless we are

SLEMP PAYS TRIBUTE TO I.ATE
Representative ('. B Siemp, upon
hearing of the death of Hon. T.
J. Muncy, paid the following beau?
tiful tribute to Mr. Muncy:
"The mighty oak has fallen. The
grim reaper has again entered our
midst, and silently and swiftly re?
moved this giant of the forest Tom I
Mnncv is dead. His death will cause I
mourning in thousands of homes, |
among the people who knew him
and loved him. I have henrd many
speakers in public life, but Tom
Muncy appealed to the people more
than any man I ever knew. His mu
jestic presence, bis picturesque lan?
guage, his fiery eloquence, his im
nnsworing integrity, his love of the
plain every day people of the world
made him, 1 think, one of the most
interesting and important figures,
produced in our great section of
Virginia. To me personally and as
a representative in congress, his loss
is irreparable. His mighty voice is
still May God bless his people."

A sweeping verdict for QUALITY
Anything For Money
We have heard of people who were so unprincipled
that they would do anything for money. It is not ex?
actly true. Most of them might do anything for mon?
ey?except work for it. They wouldn't do that!
The man who is willing to work for his money is
usually a reliable citizen and if in addition he SAVES
his money he becomes doubly valuable, both to him?
self and to the community in which he-lives. Money
saved and placed in the bank, puts the depositor on
the road to prosperity.
