The Pullman Company and two
railroads doing business in Tennes
see, have issued orders prohibiting
negroes from riding on the same
sleeper and from using the same
dining cars with white people. This
action followed a protest by Gov.
Frazier, who hail 6ve negroes as
fellow passengers in a sleeper recently.
Like all other good democrats
who have the party's welfare at
heart, the Johnson City Comet
wants to see a democratic president
elected, and here is what it says:
'Any man nominated by the demo
cratic convention will carry every
southern state and some men could
include enough northern and west
ern states to be elected president.
We want to vole for such a man,

Up to the present time there have
been thirty-three speakers of the
National House ot Representatives
Twenty-four of them have been
lawyers, three of them editors, one
a clergyman, one a physician and
one a merchant. Only one of them,
James K. Polk, the thirteenth
speaker, became president. Eleven
speakers became United States Sen
ators. But Colfax is the only man
who was presiding officer of both
their pride of birth and their loyal-'
ty to the traditions of their 6late. '
They glory in the Mecklenburg!
Declaration of Independence as the
first protest against British oppres
sion, and in the brave part the Old
North State played in the Revolu
tionary War. The spot selected
was well chosen.
No ststs suffered more during the
great struggle for independence
thau North Carolina, and there are
no brighter pages in its history than
those which record the patriotism
of i ts sons. Their descendants do
but just honor to their memory in
keeping alive these associations.
Among the resolutions adopted on
the occasion was one urging the
United States to take charge of the
battle field ot Guilford Courthouse
for a national park, and another to
have an ''Old Home" week in some
part of the state annually. Courier-Journal.

The people of Hardeman
County are in better condition than
they have been for years. True,
the present crop of cotton is not so
large as that of IaH year (which
was a record breaker) but it is
about an average and is selling for
fancy prices, which covers the de
ficiency in yield, and it was raised
with a very small expenditure.
Practically our people are out of
debt, have an abundance of corn
and meat and should be thankful.
1 he Commercial Appeal, in an
article commending the interest
taken in Memphis in the movement
to raise the Tennessee bailding fund
says: "It so happens that Tennessee
possesaess one of the three or four
historic homes that bare a nationa
interest. The Hermitage was the
home of one of our greatest Presi
dents, l acre ne Uvea lor many
years, and there he died. It is
large building, admirably suited, by
reason of its size and arrangem
for a state building. It will be
absolutely unique among the state
buildings. It will be a spleudu
advertisement lor lennessce, for it
happens that Virginia and Tennes
see are the only states having these
notable old homes. It cannot be
said that the Hermitage reproduced
will be merely a local advertisement
for it is not situated within the
limits of any city. It happens to
be in Middle Tennessee, but no one
ever thinks of it belonging exclusive
ly to that section. It is a state
building primarily, and it belongs
secondarily to the nation. The
fopriety of reproducing it as the
Tennessee building is apparent to
all." It is true that the Hermitage
is a heritage of the wboie state,
and all Tennesseans should take a
pride in having the people of the
whole nation impressed with its
historic importance. While Nash
ville is naturally and properly ex
pected to eviuce a ready interest in
having it reproduced at St. Louis as
a Tennessee building, and to take
the lead in the movement, there
should be a hearty and substantial
response and support ot tue move
ment in all parts of Tennessee.
The Boston Advertiser, in a dis
cussion of the strength of the
Methodist Church in politics, makes
the following interesting observa
tions: "From statistics carefully
compiled by local Methodists, it ap
pears that more members of the
Methodist church have been elected
governors during the past five years
than any other denomination in the
history of the country. At the
present time there are no less than
eight Stales whose chief magistrates
are Methodists. The list as un
officially compiled: Massachusetts,
Gov. Bates; Illinois, Gov. Yates;
Texas, Gov. Sayers; . Indiana, Gov.
Durbin; Nebraska, Gov. Mickey;
Missouri, Gov. Dockery; Michigan,
Gov. Bliss; Minnesota, Gov. Van
Sant. All but two of the Metho
dist governors are Republicans, the
exceptions being in Texas aud Mis
souri. The denomination which
ranks next to the Methodists in
gubernatorial laymen is the Presby
terian church, with seven, and the
Baptist, with six governors. The
strength of the Methodist church in
politics is not surprising, in view of
the number who follow this faith.
It has long been the most numerous
Protestant body in the country, and
less than twenty five years ago was
the strongest of all denominations.

devout Methodist, as was President

The Old North State.
There was a notable celebration
in Greensboro, N. C, on October
J4th. It was a reunion of non-res
ident natives of the state, gathered
from every portion of the Union,
and numbering many prominent
men from both the north and south.
Thirty-five states were represented,
besides Canada aud the District of
Columbia. The formal ceremonies
were held on the battlefield of
Guilford Courthouse, six miles
from Greensboro, and consisted of
addresses by a number of distin
guished speakers, in all of which,
as described by a local reporter,
were bright flashes of eloquence,
pathos and fraternal greeting. A
great feast was spread, and the ex !
ercises closed with a large reception
at night in Greensboro.
North Carolinians are noted for
"The cleaning of men's clothing
and carpets and rugs is a simple
matter and easily accomplished by
the person who wants to save a
little money." Thomas Bequette,
a well-known cleaner, told me, and
demonstrated his assertions later
with practical examples. "In either
case it means only the application
of soap and water. A pair of
trousers that are very badly soiled
need only to be washed, jusl as one
would wash a towel, hung up to dry
wrong side out and then pressed to
look as fresh as new. Soap and
water is one of the secrets of good
cleaning and..will never spoil a suit
of clothes, providing it has been
made from well shrunk goods.
Sometimes it is not necessary to
eleau the whole suit, and therefore
washing it in a tub is not essential.
If the collar of the coat, for instance
is soiled, instead of using benzine
or some other preparation, merelv
