Wednesday, Jan. 619157 MOST IMPORTANT QUESTION. There never can be a subject pre scnteii to the people of this county that is of such great importance as the quesition that will come up for discus son before the county court Monday, when they will consider the advisabil ity of arranging to make ground lime for our farmers and to also provide broken lime stone for surfacing our roads. It has been fully demonstrated that with ground lime our farmers can grow as fine clover here as any where and with clover every one understands our farms may rapidly be made richer and larger crops produced. Should the question come before the people to be voted upon, no one should allow personal prejudice to influence his action either for or against the question, but accept the best that can be devised with the light and experi ence at haud and all join heartily in who great, opportunity to develop our county through the only sure avenue that is open for. oif -,ttnr - Oaui ana it.. jr crso.' Many of our most eiS arp rlaun? progressive farm-1 ect and ,v interested in this sub .bJe al' stand ready to lend all poasi--J to the movement. The person no eeks to reap by forcing high prices for such lime rock territory as the county may require shou'd not be allowed to hold the county up. If necessary the land should be condemned and paid for at a fair appraised value, it such a course be possible. We are of the Belief that those who do have the land are wide awake enough and have such a strong desire to see the county grow and develop along all progressive lines that they will assume a fair and generous atti tude. AMERICAN TRADE. r The action ot President Wilson in sending a note to the British govern ment demanding that they cease to interfere with American foreign trade in the iuture ana mat tney monuy their stringent actions that have led them to tie up in English ports over five millions of dollars worth of meat alone, came as a great surprise to Eng land. There wa3 some talk of giving the matter no consideration and for Eng land to proceed as though the note had not been received, but cooler and wiser counsel prevailed and the matter will be carefully considered and a friendly reply returned.

Columbia, Tenn. "Many a time," says Mrs. Jessie bnarp, ot this place. "I wished I would die and be relieved ot my puttering, from womanly troubles I Could not get up, without pulling at something to help me, and stayed in bed most of the time. I could not do my nouseworic. T I f i - a m . . m me least amount ot work tired me out. My head would swim, and I would tremoie tor an hour or more, rinallv. look Cardui, the woman's tonic, and I am not bothered with pains any more, and I don't have to go to bed. In fact, I am sound and well of all my troubles." Cardui goes to all the weak spots and helps to make them strong. It acts with nature not against her. It is for the tired, nervous, irritable women, who feel as if everything were wrong, and need something 10 quiet their nerves and strengthen the worn-out system.

In the matter of interfering with American trade with neutral nations, the English government stands in a very peculiar position. At this time the feeling of the American people is quite strongly on the side of the allies, of which England is the leading nation. However, should the English assume an attitude that smacks of t heir usual domineering methods they are very likely to arouse an intense feeling against the English people tat would prove hurtful to their r,laf There is alumbei; nfr ; a latent form a feeling anta;onjstic to England that dates from the davs of the revolution and tbr war of 1812 and jt has been innH rnm HfrtA fn lima finrintr thp "n r-tfTtrftttte-vr t cwo decades conditions have bee.. , Tvorable to the smothering of that feeling and Americans have grown to feel more kindly towards the English than ever before. Rut the old feeing is slumber ing there and is liable to baize like a tinder box at the first show on the part of England that she intends to assume a domineering attitude or even an im proper regard for American rights. There is not the slightest probability that war will come between England and the United States over this inci dent that is now up for discussion, but if England wishes to retain the good feeling of the American people she will deal with this matter in the ut most fairness and frankness for by that means it will very quickly be brought to a pleasant close, while long drawn out delays and subterfuge in diplomacy would surely lead to arous ing ill feeling among Americans, a thing England wishes to avoid at this time especially. HIGH SCHOOL. From time to time the editor of the Chronicle has heard our High School criticized. Being in no position, from lack of information, to either deny or confirm the criticisms, we have re mained silent But since the High School is in part the property of every taxpayer of our county, we feel that the truth should be known regardless of wheie the lines fall. To this end we requested Prot. Frank March, princ'pal of the High School, to prepare an article for pub lication setting out the actual expense the High School has been to the county and also show how much funds are re ceived from other sources and to show whether or not the broadening ot the course ot study, as it has been done each year for a tew years past, meant an actual increase to me mvyviB the county or whetner or not tie rev- enues derived from other sources as the result of this broadening of the course 01 etuay meant an actual saving n-i0 Anrl further to show THERE IS A REASON Why We Are Forced to Increase the Price fo the Chronicle to $1.50 a Year Beginning January I. We have been asked why it is that we are forced to increase the price o the Chronicle to $1.50 a year when we were able, a tew years ago, to pay not less than a ten per cent dividend on over $2,000 in stock with the paper at $1.00 a year? That is a proper question and one we are very willing to answer. A few years ago there were several coal mines operating in the county from which we received much business in the way of job printing. Today there are no coal mines operating in the county and as a result we are sev eral hundred dollars short on business as compared with former years. There were also numerous stave, heading and handle mills and saw mills operating in the county. Now there is only one staveftnll and we get no busi ness from it. The saw mills are very few and as a result we get little busi ness from that source. There used to be more stores in the county than now, which means that our job printing is less from that source. There used to be much more land litigation than now and we then re- ceivedl much more from legal adver tising. All those shrinkages have reduced the income of this business several hundred dollars, to say nothing of the loss of business that resulted indirectly from the shutting down of those indus tries. It may be something of a surprise to some to Know that tne Chronicle never did profitably support itself. It had to be held up by the revenues that came from job printing. Since the business from the sources named has fallen off so heavily, there are only two other sources trom which the Chronicle can possibly secure enough business to enable it to live : Advertising and subscription. For the past three years we have been doing all possible to keep the business going from these two sources without raising subscription to $1.50, but find it to be impossible. We do not think the stores of the - ii . : - ; 1 J ,. rl nn am a"B"iJeciaiiy in uuosvuit, nu- , TtHch aa would be profitable tor them. That, however, is a matter for the store owners to decide and we are not finding fault with their attitude further than to say that they would profit more if they advertised continu ously and persistently. The situation is this : It the people of this county wish to have the Chron icle to coninue under the present man ager, it will be necessary for them to pay $1.50 a year for it, for it will re quire every cent of revenue available from that source, along with other things, to enable the paper to live. We have been7told many times that if the present manager, with his many years of experience in this field, gives up the paper, it will be impossible to find any person with sufficient knowl edge and ability to conduct a satisfac tory paper, to take hold of the busi ness. The people had one taste of that, but if they feel that they are willing to risk the outcome, they can stop the paper by refusing to subscribe and pay $1.60 a year for it. The pres ent manager would have no just cause for complaint for the people have a prefect right to do as they choose in that matter. The only course left open for the present manager would be to seek a new field, which we would most certainly do. OWNER GETTING LITTLE. The present owner, J. W. Dorton. did not purchase the plant with the idea of making money out of it. He stated to the writer that it looked as though the town and county would be without a newspaper unless he got be hind it. He further stated that he would not buy tne business when offer ed for sale by order of the Chancery court unless the writer would agree to take hold ot it and run it. We did so only after we had been led to feel that conditions would justify us in making the effort, because the public felt the need of a live paper as never before. The people over the county have pa tronized the paper better than ever be lore ancl we have more county readers than ever before. This condition we appreciate highly. In the little over three years that Mr. Dorton has owned the paper he has not received over three per cent interest on his investment. That is an injustice to Mr. Dorton for he certain ly should receive six per cent on his invesroent. Several persons have urgd us to hold on and to increase the subscription price for they say the paper is cheap at $1.50 a year. One of our best and most respected citizens stated to us re cently that he would be willing to pay $5.00 a year for the paper if that was necessary to keep it going. It may be ot interest to some to know that within the past year the present manager, through his personal efforts and the kindness of friends, has secured over $200 in printing that did not normally belong to this county. We are sparing no effort and hope to keep the paper going at the advanced subscription price, but whether or not we succeed depends on the business men of the county and the readers of the paper in the county. The tarmers of this county were never before in so prosperous a condi tion as at this time and the outlook for the future for them is bright, but it is rather a peculiar fact that a prosperous farming community is not the best place for a newspaper to succeed, un less the business men are strong be lievers in advertising and show their belief by their actions. We are starting upon the New Vear with confidence in our readers thaf they will continue in fact we feel morally sure that very few will cease to sub scribe for the paper because of the small increase in price and we believe the business will find a living in this community. There is not a single subscriber that can tell the difference at the end of the year in paying $1.50 for the paper or I $1.00. If it were only one fifty cents it would not make any difference to this business, but when it comes to 1,000 or 1,200 subscribers paying fifty cents more each year it means much to this business. It can't mean much to the single individual. STOP THAT COUGH NOW. When you catch cold, or begin to cough, the hist thing to do is to take Dr. Bell's Pine Tar Honey.
