To School Directors.
It becomes my duly to call your
attention to an act passed by the
last Legislature providing for the
consolidation of schools. This act
provides, "That no school shall be
continued where the scholastic
population is less than 70, except
where there are natural barriers,
such as streams or mountaius, or
the country is so sparsely settled
that children would have to walk
more than two and one-half miles to
This law also provides that each
child mav attend the nearest or
most convenient school, though
such school be out of his district or
State Supt. Mynders has written
me the following instructions in re
gard to this law:
"The directors will be compelled
to comply with the law, but it will
be your duty to slop the payment
of all warrants for schools that are
run contrary to law and to hold the
director rersonally responsible for
any warrants they may issue on the
school fund for such schools.
There are a number of districts
in this countv which have more
schools than can be maintained
under this law, and it is the di

business thai came before the
convention was the selection ot a
temporary secretary to act in the
absence of Secretary Black. M. L.
Webb was chosen.
The first speaker to address the i
convention was Col. J. W.
mon, of Crockett County,
subject was "Horticulture."
Stock" was discussed by
Kittrell, Live Stock Inspector, af
ter which the institute adjourned
until 1.30 p.m.
Upon i eassembling, a paper was
read on "Truck Farming" by John
R. Black, of Bolivar, and on mo
tion Mr. Block's paper was to be
submitted to the county papers for
publication. "Poultry liaising"
was discussed by Halcomb Robert
son, of Chester County. Hon. W.
W. Ogilvie, Commissioner of Ag
riculture, spoke on "The Agricul
tural Department of Tennessee."
Prof. S. A. Myuders, State Super
intendent of I'ublic Instruction,
spoke on"Our Rural Schools," after
which an adjournment was had un
til 7.30 p.m.
After supper Prof. S. M. Baiuot,
of the University of Tenuessee,
lectured on "Insect Enemies to
Fruit Growers," illustrating same
with steieopticon views.

we need to remind you that there is
no excellency without great labor.
This branch of agriculture is a
most inviting field to any man that
keeps abreast of the times and ba
the push that is necessary to the
success of any ordinary business.
It is risky, which is synonymous
with handsome profits, if well con
ducted It is intensive farming in
the broadest and fullest sense of the
term. You must have land that is
loamy, warm, well drained, full of
humus. Twenty to two hundred
two-horse loads of good 6table ma
uure, three hundred to two thous
and pounds of high grade fertilizer
per acre, is the range if applied ev
ery year, and in our humble judg
ment the nearer you approach the
maximum both of manure aud fer
tilizer the better. In this business
tillage must not be spared a deep,
moisture retaining soil is a sine qua
non. Let me say in parenthesis that
moisture is the greatest and most
perfect manure or fertilizer you
have. Harrow, roll and repeat un
til you have your land prepared
"like it reads in the book." Let
me impress it upon you not to sow
seeds or set out plauts on ground
that is not well prepared. What
you do do it well. If your land is
poor or poorly prepared, and the
seasons are unfavorable, poor stand,
poor plants, disappointment is nat
urally to be expected. The highest
tillage throughout is demanded, and
let it have anything aud everything
that it will to make your crop ear
lier, nicer and larger, especially
earlier and nicer than the other fel
low's. Plant the best seed obtaina
ble aud don't let a few cents and
even double price cause you to wa
ver on this point. Get two or three
limes the seed yon will need plen

Your plant bed is not one half the

and one half the success.
healthy plants vou must have. Get
your beds ready in November,
thouizh vou may not use some of
them until March. Don t be stingy
or careless with your plant bed.
The man that follows truck raising
has a gait from the beginning to the
end of the year, be he one horse or
oc broad acres. If he is successful,
he has one or more crops on his
hands either in the field or plant
bed and no eye can see them as his
eye can, or snouiu, see them, lie
must talk with his neighbors, read,
study, think and see what he looks
at. I. his business should be en
couraged, for it builds up our land
and the land builds up the individ
ual, the individual makes the com
munity aud nation.
Crops and Marketing. Great care
must be used in selecting your crops.
See that they suit you and your
eoil. Don't plant a crop as a truck
crop that any one can raise with
some degree of success, or that is
overdone in your thermal latitude.
Cabbage, turnips, potatoes and
strawberries are most excellent to
begin with, not very difficult to
handle, and while the prohts per

Liquor Dealers' Unwise Move.
The character of a community is
that of the best men in it, and their
voice, if it is in the majority, r
controls affairs. In this State,
through the active agency of the
Anti-Saloon League, a sentiment,
moral in nature, was engendered
against the sale of liquor. A law
was enacted through this influence
which said to the towns in Tennes
see: "if you do not want liquor
sold in your community, vote it
out." This was done in all except
twelve towns and cities. The
Supreme Court has held the law
constitutional; this is a government
where the majority rules; and there
fore, no one can deny that anything
unlawful or harmful has been done
by eliminating the saloon from those
places which now have it not. No
force other than the majesty of the
law and public sentiment was used
to accomplish this result, and the
General Assembly very wisely left
it with the sovereign communities
to decide this question for them
selves. This was a moral move
ment, the culmination of years of
agitation, the end of the progressive
Christian plan. It was an ism,
which failed as a political move
ment, but succeeded when the
people of a great party took it up.
In 1887, on the vote for constitu
tional prohibition, it being a moral
issue then, the question was barely
defeated and would have been
carried if the preachers and good
sieters had remained off the Btump
and awav from the polls. That
enormous vote (li,uuuj was an
evidence of the sentiment of the
Slate toward the liquor traffic
Since 1S87 the sentiment againsl
the saloon in this State has grown
until to-day it has crystalized into
the Adams law. This statute owes
its vitality to the Democratic party,
which controls this State, and with-
out whose Su,ort no .aw cou.c. be
