JOHN WESLEY GAINES
Representative In Congress from Ten
nessee 47 Years Old Today
John Wesley Gaines a striking fig
ure of the National house of repre
sentatives for the past twelve years
was born In Davidson county Tennes
see August 2418C1 He was educat
ed in the public schools and became a
schoolmasjfix He was graduated
C S0TW
from Vanderbilt University as a doc
tor of medicine but never practised

the study ot law and began the prac
tice of that profession in Nashville
He became interested in politics and
in 1892 was a presidential elector on
the Cleveland ticket In 1897 he was
elected to congress on the democratic

A Grand Spectacle
One of the most thrilling inspiring
spectacles confronting the thoughtful
individual is that of a young vigor
ous healthful man of average intelli
gence as he stands on the threshold
of life indifferent to the past prodi
gal as to the present and full of
speculative hopes of the future Hes
a jewel the countrys hope a grand
link binding together the lovelight of
the past and the gilded fringes of
the morning of life Oh how we feel
like putting an arm around him draw
ing close up and whispering in his
large furry ear of the pitfalls along
the way and warn him of the errors
into which we who are older have
fallen
If we could only show him the evils
of whiskey tobacco and debt
Dont talk back to us we know
But will he listen Some times
Then how solicitous we become
when we see the rich red blood leave
his face and he grows pale and with
upprice SI25
