CROSSVILLE ON ROUTE, BOY SCOUTS OK AMERICA. The following comtuumction from Harry Martin, Coresident of the Cum berland County Fair Association will be read with much interest by many over the county. It should, and doubt less will, encourage many farmers to plant one'or more creps with the view to competing for prizes. Editor Chronicle, Dear Sir : As an answer to your ar ticle as to whether there .would be an other fair this year, I wish to say that we talked some of trying to get up a stock company and buy some ground, fence it and put up buildings, etc., for a permanent fair, but after talking the matter over with the Committee we decided not to undertake it, but to hold qrottj another fair nn the same plan as tne one last year, omy on a larger scale. I soon and we will make out our pre mium lists and have them published by the first of April. 1 have on hand deposited in the First National Bank $71 87, left over from last year. 1 ihink we ought to raise about $400 for premiums by the county helping us out as much as they did last year. Now I am much in favor of a larger, greater fair, a fair that will encourage our farmers and stock men to greater efforts and will advertise our county. I heartily agree with you about hav ing a sale day at the fair and I think the fair should last th,-ee or four days, and that the people of Crossville should get up some sort of a carnival to pro vide entertainment arid create a friend ly spirit with the country people. t here is no question but that we will have a fair and a good one too. Harry Martin, Pres., Cumb. Co. Fair Assn. ago, North Texas was strong for pro hibition and South Texas was uncom promisingly opposed to it. The people of North Texas claimed at the time that the corrupt and fraudulent vote of the negroes and Mexican "greasers" of South Texas defeated the amend ment. In recent years the Panhandle sec tion ot Texas, comprising an immense area, has rapidly grown in population, and it is this territory that is now spoken of as one of the three proposed new states. The most interesting and important political result of the division of Texas into several states would be the in creased number of Democratic United States Senators.- Nashville Banner.

For quite a while there has been talk of what is known as the Dixie High way, which is intended to connect Chi cago and Atlanta with a good automo bile road. The plan is to build it on a concrete foundation thereby making of it one ot the best roads in the United States and of so permanent a character that it will be just as easy to motor between Chicago and Atlanta in mid winter as in midsummer and much more pleasant. I Several meetings have been held in Chattanooga at which C, L. James, one of the wealthy men of Chattanooga, j I; as been a speaker and prime mover in the proposed highway. Atone meet ing he proposed to pay the cost of the survey of the road from Chattanooga to Crossville in person provided the road be built so as to reach his hotel on Waldens Ridge, a few miles from Chattanooga. Mr. James has built a splendid road up the mountain from Chattanooga to his hotel property and is working to make of his Waldens Ridge hotel and land connected there with a permanent summer resort. SURE TO REACH CROSSVILLE. At a meeting of tnc Chattanooga automobile club Friday night Mr. James 'made the statement that the road would be built via Crossville re gardless of what direction it might take from there on. Nashville parties are trying hard to influence tlv road via Manchester and on to Nashv:rj and from hhere to Louis'iille, Ky., as one of the objective points on the proposed line. Loutaville people are working to have the line come via crossville as the more direct and shorter route, and it will at the same time render the road much more pleasant to travel in While raiding a wildcat still in Put- ",7 r' - wnue u" w .

This is done to injure Russia and Should it be carried out it would doubt less draw the Poles entirely away from Russia ana put them on the side of her enemies. If such an attempt can be carried out is questionable. There seems to be a great deal of Dixie Highway Now Seems Sure 0f!misun(ierstand,ng as to what the Boy ocoui movement is ann its true princi ples, aome nave aenouncea it as a military organization backed up by the United States Government and say that the government furnished guns for drilling purposes. That iB not in the least true as the Boy Scouts do not take military drill. The Boy Scout movement has as its purpose the de velopment of the boy into the highest class citizen, with pure motives and brotherly love. Again there seems to be a great deal ot mist hanging about the Scout mas tership. Some say, how much pay do you get for your work with the boys? The answer is easy ar.d plain so that no one need misunderstand: The Scout master gets only the love of the boys and a lot of nard work together with thu boys and to share the expenses out of his own purse. Perhaps the movement can best be understood by the following extract from an article in The Outlook, by Jacob A. Riis, Oct. 25, 1913. "The savage has come uppermost in the boy, and he lives the law of the jungle. Put before him the other al ternative, and he will adopt the Scout law to be dutiful, obedient, heplful and clean, with the same enthusiasm. They really start from the same point; it is the way they work out that makes the difference. Everything depends on the guidepost where the roads fork. "Write the word 'don't' there, and only that, and the boy, it he has any spirit, will take to the jurigu. Every father knows it; every teacher has learned it, if he has learned anything. The word is not in the Scout law. It is all affirmative. A Scout is loyal, he is heplful, he is friendly, he is courte ous, kind ; he is obedient, cheerful, thrifty, and brave : he is clean in body and thought, stands for clean speech, clean spot t, clean habits, and travels wiht a cii an crowd. And he is rever ent toward God. faithful to himself, and respectful toward the convictions of others, these are tne -Scout laws, and he obeys them not only because he has promised to, but because he wants to. There isn't a 'don't' in the lot. It is as easy as all that. 'Here are two little Scouts coming upon a horse that had upset his dinner and scattered tne oats on the pave ment. Seeing that he cannot get his head down, they sweep up the oats and hold the box until he has eaten. "In New ork City the Health De partment enlists the Scouts in the 'Clear. City Campaign.'
