Dr William Maxwell, Master of the
Tennessee State Grange, addresses an
interesting communication to the Pa
trons of the State through the medium
of the Grange Outlook. He rpens
with the very practical hut constantly
needed advice, that nil correspondents
expecting answers should give their
post office and county. He says hun
dreds of letters ai-king valuable in
formation cannot be answered owing
to the om'wwon noted. Master Max
well urges concentration by the
Grangers upon the plans and business
men or agencies recommended by the
Executive Committee, or by the
county and district agencies. He
deprecates ''little partialities" in favor
of certain implements or machines,
when others fully as good are offered
by manufacturers who are ready to
enter into arrangements with the
Grange. By adhering to this policy
it is claimed that farmers will save at
least one-half on all they buy. The
one thing needful is confidence con
fidence in each other and the inspiring
of conSdeuce in others. Manufac
turers, merchants and the public must
be convinced of the stbility of the
