Finis Giirrott oC Tennessee,
the brilliant .young stiitosnuin
who leads the ) louse Democrats
in tile absence of Mr. ICitchin, is
a parliamentarian of the first
rank, an able tlebater, a deep
logician -in .short n loader of
real strength- but he is also at
home in prodding the Republi
cans with short-arm jabs that
arc frequently touched with
humor. The other dn.y the
House passed the bill to extend
the provisions of the "kmergon

the discussion Mr. Garrett said:
"Mr. Chairman, for almost
three years now the Kepubli

control of both the legislative
brandies of the Government.
For eight months, practically,
that party has been in control of
both the executive and the legis

ure this afternoon is the sub
stance of its three years of ef
fort and labor, towit, a measure
to extend the life of a measure
which even when it was passed
was a joke and which has since
became the universal laughing
stock of the Republic.

Terracioif Sides Of Hills Prevents
Soil Wasbinff Away
Terracing the sides of farm
land hills to prevent washing of
the soil is a p roll table occupa
tion at any time of the year, but
particularly so during the fall
when the farmer is not very
busy. The cost of th;1. woik
often will not exceed the water
damage of a single spring sea
son. Soil erosion is held re
sponsible for much of the worn-
out hill lands of the United
States, where if the water were
checked by properly built ter
race ridges it would cease to
tear away the soil and instead
permit the land to grow in fer
tility. Tea racing is widely
practiced in the South, and the

Agriculture regards it as ad
