GUARD YOUR BALLOT Three weeks from next Saturday the republican primary election will be held for selecting candidates for the several county offices. Should unworthy persons be selected it will reflect badly for the party and the county as a whole. The foregoing, nor anything that may follow, is not said with any purpose of reflecting upon any candidate. The location of the Southern Meth odist school in our county and at the door of the county seat means great things for the county in general and Crossville in particular, provided the people of the county show the proper regard for obedience to the law. Not that Cumberland county is worse than other counties, but if we do not stand strongly for law enforcement it will very' materially operate against the influx of the kind of people that every section is most desirous of having as citizens. Never has the outlook for growth and progress in this county been so bright as at this time, but people of the kind we wish and need as citizens are very likely to look carefully to the general idea of law enforcement before moving to any new location. If we select officers who have little regard for law and order, We build a barrier against the -coming of tut best people in our town nd coaunty Every person who favors law and order should feel it hi; or her press ing duty to go to the polls and vote for the best candidates offering for each of the ofi-es.

To the Voters of Cumberland County:- I had thought of making the race for County Court Clerk, but ow ing to a business proposition that has come up, coupled with the fact that I am a juror in the federal court, that will take me out of the county for the next ten days, it will be imposs ible for me to make a canvass of the county.

Peck, Commissioner of Agriculture THE COUNTRY PAPER'S Some weeks ago I had something newspapers of the state in alvertt to say in regard to the newspapers ot ing our great natural resources in the state, and the great power they coal, iron, phosphate and other min exercised for good in their communi- erats. And in a similar degree the ties, and the duty of the citizens of; great agricultural development of the these communities to give their paper I state is largely due to the spirit of tneir wnoie-hearted support. I feel that a few more words on this sub-, ject would not be amiss, just now at the time when the country papers are calling attention to "Home Paper Week." For sixteen years I- published a county weekly newspaper, and during that time I learned many things about its possibilities and its limitations. I came to understand how much is expected of the county paper, and how in many cases, scant appreciation is shown of the work done by the news papers. The newspaper in every community does more gratuitous work than any individual or organization in that com 1TI II HI TV. 1 MP npurcnanpr man e 1 tint. ural booster it is 'his natural inclin ation. You may go into any commun ity and make inquiries about the lo cation of new industries, and you will find the newspaper has been the chief factor in inducing new capital and new business to come into the coinmu nity. It is often the case that the newspaper man is 30 interested in boosting everybody else's business that he neglects to boost his own in the degree that he should. The newspaper man's vocation is one he can well afford to be proud of, and one which he is justified in boosting. Others respect the news peper and give it support sometimes when some of the "boosting" spirit is evidenced in the interest of the newspaper; The newspaper is the moulder of publicjopinion it makes and unmakes politicians, and is the power above all others that makes for the progress and prosperity of a community.

The Giant of the South Its immense populartiy is due not only to the fact that every line in it is written for Southern farm families by men and women who know and appreciate Southern con dition but to the practically unlimited personal service which is given to the subscribers without charge.

POWER FOR GOOD. co-operation shown by the press of the state in co-ooeration with the Department of Agriculture and the Division of Extension in the spread of knowledge of the best methods in farming. But there remains a great deal to be done, and I am sure that the newspapers of the state will con tinue to co-operate in the develop ment of the agricultural interests of the state, because they realize that agriculture is the basic industry, and unless the agricultural classes of the nation are prosperous there can be no permanent prosperity for the state and nation. We ae all interested in the agri cultural development of the state. Originally our land in Tennessee was all fertile, but we have followed the, system ot larming that in many , cases has robbed thesoil of its fertility. On every hand can be seen galled hill sides the results of poor farming. The country newspaper reaches to every part of the county in which it ispub lished, and the broad policy of that paper in its co-operation in preach ing the gospel of better farming will result in reclaiming much of the land in the state that has been abandoned as worthless; acreage will be increas ed and with better methods of farm ing, production will increase.
