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.
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
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.

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.
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

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.' They did it in
Yonkers so well that the oldest inhabi
tant would not have known the bank of
the Nepperhan that had beer, the gen
eral uump oi tne city lor a genera
tion. "
lhe scout s mind is caught awaj
from the negative Jaw of "don't,'' be
ing asborbed in the action of "doing.
