Congressman Cantrill Failed To
Fill Appointment Last
THE OLD GUARD WAS THERE.
Tobacco Growers Warned Of
Disastrous Results Of
For some unknown reason Hon.
J. Campbell Cantrill did not keep hia
appointment to speak on the tobacco
situation at Pembroke Wednesday
and in this city Thursday. He sent
a telegram merely stating that he
would be unable to come. His fail
ure was a great disappointment to
fc-the county officials and the farmers.
f General Manager F. G. Ewing and
John Coutts, of Springfield, came
Thursday morning, filled with disap
pointment at the non-appearance of
Mr. Cantrill. As Circuit Court
was in Bession and an important
commonwealth case was on trial,
with many others to be taken up,
Judge Hanbery could not adjourn
and give the tobacco men the use of
the room, a meeting was held in the
council chamber. About 100 per
1 eons were present. W. W. Radford
?Tjnade the first speech. He. made an
'earnest plear for everybody to join
the association and predicted that
the prices for tobacco would be as
low as they were eight years ago if
the association should disband and
go out of business. He was follow
ed by Mr, Ewing, who, on account
of illness, confined-himself to , ten
minutes. He took the ground that
every man thou d either be in favor
tfof the i,scciauon or against it. He
'"has no patietice with the men who
keep silent, not taking sides, but al
low other men to help them. He
considers Christian one of the most
important counties in the black
patch. It is one of the largest, one
of the wealthiest and raises one of
the largest crops. So much more
tfje reason why they should sign up
for three years. He said that sign
ing for three years means a cent a
pound more for tobacco than sign
ing for one year. He believes that
in two weeks his county (Montgom
ery, Tenn.,) will sign up for 90 per
cent of the next crop.
Mr. Ewing was followed by Mr.
Coutts, who is most thoroughly ac
quainted with all the doings of the
association. He claimed the closest
attention of the farmers and his re
marks put many of them to think
ing, If enthusiasm and earnestness
of purpose can do anything In arous
ing indifferent farmers to action,
Christian county will surely be in
the association by the time the books

During the first quarter, after
High School had kicked off to Bow-
em, the High School team showed up
rrdghty weak on the defense, as Bow-
en battered the line and hit the
'tackles for yards and soon made a
touch down, but after this High
School took a brace and put up a
superior article of football. During
Ltbe fourth quarter, Bowen carried
the ball over the line for another
touchdown, but fumbled and Roberts
fell on the ball. Then the fun be
gan. High School took the ball on
their own 20 yard line and by line
plunging by H. Abbitt, Waller and
Twyman, carried the ball all the way
up the field to the one foot line, but
here the time keeper's whistle blew
and ended the game.
.Bowen was heavier than High
School by an average weight of about
five pounds to the man, and it was

the whole game. His line plunging
was simply marvelous, as he simply

and his defensive work could not
have been excelled. McReynolds at
