rjNGLAND s good queen
Victoria, died Monday even
his at Osborne House on the
Isle of Wight, aged nearly
82 years. Her reign extend
ed over a period of sixtv-fou
years. The prince of Wale
succeeds to the throne.
A bill lias been introduced
in the Legislature requiring
parents and guardians to send
their children between eigh
and fifteen years or age to
school. If people do not vol
untarilv educate their chil
dren they should be compell
ed to do so.
One of the first things the
Legislature did was to vote
each member five dollars for
postage stamps, whereupon
some -gentleman made the
unkind remark that the aver
age Legislator would no
spend that amount for pas
tage in five years.
The members of the Leg
islature deserve to be con
gratulated upon the nomina
tion of Capt. John W. Mor
ton as Secretary of State.
Capt. Morton has served Ten
nessee well in war and in
peace and has always taken
an active interest in the suc
cess of the Democratic party.
It is true the party owes no
man anything, but whenever
it has favors to bestow they
should fall upon deserving
shoulders such as is the case
in this instance.
Written to the editor of the Tennessee Farmer.
Do not be alarmed at the bark
ing of fice dogs or the croaking of
small-fry demagogues. It is only
the recurrence of the bi-ennial epi
sode, when a few small calibre men,
so full of venom that they, like the
rattlesnake in dog-days, become so
blinded with venom, that they strike
right and left, trying to kill or hurt
something or somebody, but whoev
er heard of a blind snake hurting
anything except itself, so also, with
the little bullet-head politician or
small-fry demagogue, who make
their bi-ennial debut, say their lit
tle piece and retire. Don't be
alarmed, fice-dogs in the rear never
hurt anybody. So our Farmers' In
stitute work will go right on and
accomplish great good in Tennessee.
It will in the future as in the past,
bring together an array of talent
that will overcome many 'obstacles
that have greatly hindered progress
in agricultural development in this
great State. We will come togeth
er, talk over our mutual interests,
give each the benefit of the observa
tion and experience of the other, in
spire in our farmers a ispirit of emu
. lation and State pride, a patriotic
zeal for the development and up
building of the great State of Ten
nessee, encouraging each other to
strive to make our farm homes com
fortable, and our families happy,
and in this way comply with the in
junction of the Inspired Writer who
said, "bear ye one another's burdens
and so fulfill the law of Christ."
Yes, Mr. Editor, the Farmers' In
stitute has "come to stay," and it
will accomplish good in Tennessee.
We have accepted the co-operation
of agencies, sincerely working to
advance the agricultural interests of
the State, and we will continue' to
do so regardless of what our ene
We are not surprised at some op
position. We read in the Bible
that "when the sons of Job went up
to worship, the devil went up also."

Captain John AV. Morton,

the first issue of one of the world's
greatest newspapers appeared. St.

grown town on the western frontier
of civilization, has developed into a
great commercial metropolis, and
that great modern newsgatherer, the
St. Louis Globe-Democrat, has kept
