Is the State too thickly settled? I
hardly think that is the case. Can
it be that those Tennesseeans who
seek their fortunes in other states
are blind to their surroundings and
neglect the opportunities for success
to be found among the mineral and
agricultural resources of their own
state? Tennessee has nearly every
varietv of soil and climate. It is
rich in mineral wealth. Its soil can
