' 1 11 1 j As all readers understand there" is to be a great conference of the lead-: ing nations to meet in Weashington, November 11, to discuss the question of "limitation of armaments" and not "disarmaments" as so many persons' insist in speaking of the meeting. J As it has been said from Wash- j ington : "Our people should not ex- I pect too much." What we wish and ; hope for is liable to be far from : what we will get, but all may rest . assured that the good name and hon- j esty of purpose of the United States will be maintained, while every poss- 1 ible effort'will be put fort hto lighten the burden that comes from war ex penditures. In this country it is seen that of all the taxes gathered more than eigh ty percerjj goes for the war idea in some form or another. It is to bei reasonably assumed that conditions : in Europe make the burden fully as great or greater.. It has been repeat edly stated that the world will go bankrupt, if some character or under standing Is not arrived at that will reduce war expenditures. That state- ment would seem surely true when one remembers that more than four fitfhs of all taxes go for war purposes ; in one way or another. Of all the notion; of the world, thei United States can stand the strain ' best., we can build more ships than any other nation England not ex- j cepted for our wealth is far greater i than any of them and our undeveloped resources present a vast store of' reserve power that even England does not possess. . It would see..; that, when the na tions once realize that the United States is determined en one of two things : Either a general relaxation of war r"n!1 rations or we will Luild the largest navy in the world and thus assume the rna.tery of the seas, they will be able to come to some under standing whereby the present war burdens Will be lightered in the com ing years. We need expect no light ening of the present war burdens ex cept as we pay them off. There is a feelinc m the part of some that this country can go into that conference vvi'h the altruistic idea that by disarming ourselves we will by example force Europe and Japan to disarm. Nothing could be farther from the tru If this coun try should assume that attiude Eng land and the other powers would simp ly let us disarm a-ld thereby increase the weight of their power and in fluence Nothing is farther from the intentions of Mr Warding and his conference appointees. It has always 1 -: the policy of England to look firt for the interest of her pocketbok there is no likelyhood she will assume any other atitude this time. Sentimentality will have no weight and it will not be invoked hv this fO"ernment to any great extent. As one writer has said: "They will come to the conference with thei' check books and not their hymnbooks." Wc have no reason to expect any very large results. Taste is a matter of tobacco quality We state it as our honest belief that the tobaccos used in Chester field are of finer quality (and hence of better taste) than in any other cigarette at the price.

They see the "hand writing on the wall." One of the surest evidences that prosperity and business revival is corning and will be with us by spring or before, is that conditions are im proving so rapidly in the war-torn re gions of Europe. JUSTICE IS OUTRAGED MD PEOPLE WRONGED lish some far fetched technicality as a means to setting free the guilty party. In the face of such conditions it is little wonder that mob violence prevails in many cases. STATE EXPERIMENT FARM Everything now indicates there will be no railway strike as was first threatened, for the heads of the labor organisations are working with fever ish haste to bring about conditions whereby thov can "ave their face" and not c?.11 he strike.

The "Plumb'plan" will not be foisted on the American peo ple now nor for a long time to come. The Inside Facta Touching the Purl nutter Murder Caie in Put nam County Last Year. It will be remembered by many throughout this section that Rapn ael Purlmutter, a soldier, was murder ed in Putnam county, March 16, 1920. Four men were apprehended on charge of being connected with the crime. One man turned states evi dence against Alfred Smith and Jim Madewell and Jim Robinson, Colored, At a recent trial they were acquitted an having been found guilty of mudicd in the first degree "without mitigating circumstances" in a pre vious trial. The case was reversed by Supreme Justice Edwaid J. Smith, who was acting temporarily, and the finding was concurred in by the re mainder of the court. To the average person the case seems to present a great wrong inflicted upon the pub lic. The conditions are as follows, as we have the fact from a most re liable source : These four men killed Purlmutter for the money he had on his person, which amounted to around .$1,000, in cash and other monetary papers. One of the murders turned state's evi dence and the evidence he gave was confirmed by an old negro woman. On the evidence thus presented the jury returned a verdict of "Murder in the first degrea, without mitigating circumstances." The jury failed to go the limit and say that the con victed men should suffer death by electrocution. On that grounds alone the case was sent back for a new trial. ! The state contended that since there is only one penalty for "murder ; in the first degree without mitigat- j ing circumstances," it was entirely unnecessary for the jury to define the the manner of their death. ! When the men came to be tried again, it seemed very evident that some one had been tampering with the old negro woman so that she swore slightly different to what she had in the former trial and on that ground the jury returned a verdict of 'iimt tniilty." The state maintained that in just ice and law both it did not matter that flic secene of the murder -was 1 Monday we visited the State Ex periment Farm, one mile north of town, in company with J. E. Con verse, who is in charge of that work. There we saw evidences on every hand of the splendid results obtained by the use of lime and acid phosphate in combination. In every instance especially on clover and the grasses it was conclusively shown that the FORTY-ACRE FARM SOLD FOR $1,800 Paul Linde Closes Out Hi Farm to Joseph Peterson, Gires Poss essoin November 1.

"Subscribe for your home town pe per." This is the slogan of a new nation wide movement backed by the National Editorial Association and. other agencies including the Division of Extension of the University of Tennessee through its news service department. The movement has back of it far more than a selfish desire on the part of the newspapers, to acquire in creased circulation, for it is in fact a step toward the perfect unification of America by the strengthening of ties that bind anyone to native soil. The campaign is, moreover, an ex cellent opportunity to boost the horn town and county. The men and wo men who were born and reared her have, some of them, been away many years and many important changes have taken place changes in which they would be greatly interested. The newspaper prints all the items of interest, large and small, and is the ideal medium through which to keep in touch with the old home town. Nothing holds atown and the peo ple of a county together quite so w-ell as a weekly newspaper. Nothing boosts for you quite so strenuously first, last and all he time as the coun ty seat paper. Nothing is quite so ready to laugh with you in your joys, sympatize with you in your sorrows and extend help in your misfortunes as the home town newspaper. Everybody is expected to subscribe for his home paper during the week of November 7-12 which is to be known as "Subscribe for your home town paper weelc." If already a sub scriber you are expected to pay up pour subscription. Boost your home town and county by subscribing for your home town paper. Extension News Service, University of Tenn.

A clover sod had been turn ed, however, and phosphate at the rate of 900 pounds to the acre had been used.
