Insure your property with the
Guardian Insurance Co? It is purely
a home company and the money
which you pay in is kept right here
in your own State. Besides this, by
chartered right they guarantee to
every policy holder participation in
their profits and it is the only com
pany in Tennessee which does it.
Its policy holders are free from all
liabilities as with any other stock
companies, which return you noth
ing. The value of this Company to the
people of Tennesssee can only
properly be measured by the fact
that it has saved to them in the last
two years an average of about $500,
000.00 annually, in preventing a
general increase in rates, which
would have been enforced by the
other companies but for the interpo
sition of the Guardian ; and to this
extent, at least, this company has
proven a benefactor to the citizens
of Tennessee, and is therefore cer
tainly entitled to the cordial sup
port which it has received, and of

o'clock p. m., Miss Joe Sullivan died
at her home in South Columbia
after a few days illness, in the 20th

a member of the Christian Church

She worked with never-tiring
energy for the upbuilding and ad

and lived so that when the last
hour came she was ready and will

Effect of Words.
There is such a variety of words thev
are used to both good and bad effects
whendesired. An architect of a great
building is very careful regarding
solidity and regularity in laying the
foundation. And so it is with the
minds of great characters in laying the
foundation of their words, either verbal
or written. While there are others who
use words like Absalom's kisses, for
effects sake only. Still others, like the
little boy with straw iu his hat to catch
the pony, thev desire a favor of you.
Hut of all demoralizing language,
words used to the worst effect, is to
stealthily impair the character of
another. The slang expression, "Xotso
much smoke without some tire" is some
times made. Of course not. For we are
taught the tongue is a tire and usually
envy, Jealousy and malice, ignites the
name, a person may reel under ine
trying ordeal that 'human injury de
manded human redress.' Yet it is far
better to require no redress at such
parties' hands, as their own words
finally will assign to them the portion
of the second death.
The Condition Which Invite a Foothold
of Thla Dread lUeae.
The germs of this disease cannot ob
tain a foothold until the resistive pow
ers of the tissues have been reducod.
There must be not only the seed, but tho
soil. This impaired power of resistance
way bo the result of heredity, and this
influence iu tho causation of disease is
seldom shown to better advantage than
in the history of consumption. There
have bijen instances in which a single
case introduced into a long and sound
ancestry has vitiated the stock forever.
How unfortunate that such matters
are so little considered in marrying and
giving in marriage! It is not that the
disease is inherited, but the vulnerable
tissues, the feeble resistive powers, ren
der the offspring an easy prey to the
ubiquitous bacillus. This weakness of ten
shows itself by a tendency to become ill
from slight causes, a sickliness not by
any means to be confounded with merely
a lack of robustness or strength. One
organ or part of the body, frequently
tho mucous membrane, is usually more
prone to become affected, and the begin
nine of the disease can often be traced
to an attack of some slight ailment.
Not only the children of consumptiye
parents may show these characteristics,
but also those of parents generally en
feebled, or whose ages are widely sepa
rated, or who are closely related by blood,
or of a mother who has previously borne
a number in quick succession. Even
when heredity is sound the same condi
tion is sometimes induced by coddling.
by improper feeding, by attacks of acute
disease or by want and distress. In
growing children a bad carriage of body
may act injuriously by contracting and
deforming the chest. The stooped posi
tion which boys sometimes assume la
bicycle riding should be discouraged for
this reason. lliiain L. Russell, zL
D., in Popular Science Monthly.

An Argument tu Show Why They Should
Charity has been defined as this 6tate
of things:. That so soon as A is in trou
ble B begins to consider what C ought
to do for him. All charitable fairs, for
instance, are based on this principle.
You go and ouy something which yon
probably do not want in order that the
profit made on it may go to some good
cause. Incase you had really wanted
what you bought you would have per
haps bought it somewhere else, and the
regular trade thus suffers from the loss
of your custom. In case of very large
fairs, like the "sanitary fairs" in war
time, tho ordinary local trade unques
tionably suffers, perhaps for a whole
year, and the community is thus impov
erished to a degree in one way so that
it may be helped in other ways.
For a great national object thig can
easily be endured, although, to be sure,
we never have known just what the
regular dealers thought about it. But
when we consider that the same thing
is done to some extent in behalf of every
local or sectarian enterprise, it is evi
dent that the principle of the affair is
not quite satisfactory.
Suppose, for instance, that we were
all to agree for a single year to have all
our shoes and hats made by amateurs
for sweet charity's sake," and to have
a single cnurcn or hospital take the
value of them all. Then sweet charity
would make an apparent gain no doubt,
but all the ordinary hatmakers and shoe
makers would starve. Or, if they did
not starve, they would be supported by
their kindred, who perhaps are not far
above the stiuvation point themselves,
or they would be supported by sweet
charity, and the last condition of things
would be worse than the first It is not
really the fact that the evils of society
can be greatly helped by dressing up
young girls prettily and having them
take money and give rather inaccurate
change at a bazaar table. One day, per
haps, when the laws of trade are better
understood, we shall look at charity
fairs as we already look at lotteries,
which were once regarded as one of the
highest forms of sweet charity, but
which are now prohibited by law.

Virginia, iu parts of Georgia and iu the
blue grass region of Tennessee fanning
pays fairly, owing to the greater tlirift
of the inhabitants and to the fertility of
the soil, but, on the whole, the progress
of the new south, like that of the rest of
tho country, certainly has not taken this
direction. It is tlirough its urban de
velopment only that the section has
justly earned its sobriquet.
New cities like Roanoke, Va, have
sprung up on ground that 20 years ago
was parceled into farms. Antebellum
villages have become large cities, as in
the case of Atlanta and Chattanooga.
Old towns like Nashville and Richmond
have taken a fresh lease of life and be
come rich and progressive. A new rail
road has made the fortune of this place,
a new textilo or other industry has
caused the growth of that. And all this
progress has been due to the abolition of
slavery and to the destruction of prop
erty caused by the civil war. The south
erner of the last 30 years has simply
had to work in order to live, and, like
tho rest of tho world, he has preferred
tho town to tho country. W. P. Trent

"Why," was tho reply, "they aro play

requires explanation. I know only two
tunes one is 'Yankee Doodle,' and the
other isn't" General Horace Porter in
