Feb. 6. xx- GROUNDHOG DAY CHANGED BY HIGH AUTHORITY i Some Year Ago Monroe Hyder i Fixed It Februray 14, and Some I Claim That Settle It. I Thursday of last week, February 2, is generally considered Groundhog I Day, an1 if his hojt.hip did not see his shadow in this section it was because i he overslept and did not venture forth, for the day was bright and sun ny. ' The thought of a severe winter and j six weeks more of cold and snow is ! far fom pleasant to practically every ! one. Judge C. E. Snodgrass, Esq. U. : S. Rose and others were discus sing the groundhog theory of winter and much regret was expressed that the winter should prove a long and .severe one, if his hogship was to be believed. Esq. Rose told those present that he had no fears of the winter being long and cold because Februray 2 was a bright and sunshiny day and that he should reserve his judgment on the severity of the winter until after Feb. 14, for that was the real Groundhog Day for this county. When asked why, he explained it in this wise. Several years ago a suit was in course in the circuit court, over which Judge C. E. Snodgrass presides, and Monroe Hyderwas called to testify. In asking him questions pertaining to the case, theattorney asked Mr. Hyder his age hi!fc replied a cer tain number of vears old "next Ground hog Day." The attorney asked him when that would be according to the calendar. Mr. Hyder promptly said, Hastings' Seeds 1922.

Esq Rose maintains 111a v 111 pvi osti ui vuuu 11,11 11 1 x. a ? onaJle judgment in this section would pretend to question so high an auth ority as Mr. Hyder on that point, and for that reason February 14 must of necessity be Groundhog Day for this ection since that time. Judge Snodgrass also vouches for the testimony of Mr. Hyder on the point at issue. The editor of the Chronicle has no information as to whether or not Mr. Hyder has issued his edict and chang ed the day in Idaho, where he now lives, but we feel sure that should he do so those who know Mr. Hyder, and there are several Cumberland county citizens living there, they would at once accept his edict without question, and have just as much faith in freb ruary 14 as in February 2. HUMOROUS LETTER WRITTEN ABOUT OLD DOG TRAY Prominent Rockwood Lawyer Writes T. A. Lingo, Westel, Relative To the Dog Law. Wmen the dog law went into effect in 1919, T. A. Lingo wrote a promi nent Rockwood lawyer asking some questions relative to the law as he did not wish to become subject to a fine on account of his faithful friend, the dog. Following is the answer Mr. Lin go eceived. January 27th., 1919. Mr. T. A. kingo, Westel, Tennessee, My dear Link : Old dog Tray got it in the neck good and proper, when the last Legislature put the price of one dollar on the head of every male dog and three dollars on every female dog, for every year that it is allowed to live. If h eor she' is allowed to live and the one or three dollars are not forthcoming, then the owner must suffer the penalty ,of being arrested, fined fom ten to fifty dollars, and pay said fine and cost or go to jail and serve time in that institutoin. Now, what are you going to do about it? Kill the faithful friend who has stood by you when every other person and creature has forsaken you pay the price put upon his head and let him further enjoy life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness, or go to jail until you fine is served out? If you will let him live, then meet the heartless tax gatherer at Daysville on Tuesday morning, July 8th., 1919, and fork over the so called Doqr Tax, which if you don't, you will have to go to Crossville and face the' stern countenance of Judge S'lodjyass, and may the Lord have mercy 01 your soul. Pay it Link, and save your honor and reputation for being a good and lawful citizen." Mr. Lingo now informs us he is here "facing the stefn countenance of Judge Snodgrass" because of a sup posed delinquency in complying with the mandates of that same law when he' has in fact, paid the tax on his dog. Of course the matter will be pleasantly adjusted when the true situation become known to the court. ANOTHER DRY VICTORY The United States Supreme court held last week that intoxicating liq uors stored in government bonded warehouses cannot be withdrawn by orders for personal use. Such liquor can only be transferred from the bonded warehouses to wholesale drug gists for sale for Durooses not pro hibited. This is regarded by the dry fnrroe as a rOUSinC victory for prohibition.

HARRiMAN, TENN HOME TREATMENT OF COLDS The best time to treat a cold is be fore the actual cold has started. One knows he has been exposed ito a case of cold Someone with a cold has carelessly coughed or sneezed within arms length of you in the open air, someone no more careful of his coughing or sneezing has been in the same room or iiouse with you or in the season of colds you have been out in public, at the movie or in the court room or church. Ir any or all of these cases you may take it for grant ed that yuo have had a severe ex posure. On the other hand regardless of any direct exposure you may have had yonr feet damp or wet, or a cold draft has been blowing on your neck or shoulders, or you have sat in meeting with your feet getting colder every ininiue, or you nave Deen out tor a long, cold, windy drive or you have been standing talking to someone on the street, or not realizing how cold the day was you have dressed too thinly, or realizing the coldness of the day have gone underclad; all these constitute real exposure to cold. Now is the time to use the ounce of prevention and cheat the Doctor of his bill. The method of treatment in this stage is the same as in the stages following and will be discussed later. The next step in the cold's advance is that chilly sensation the desire to hug the fire, else cold chills chase themselves up and down the back; or the throat begins to feel a little up and uncomfortable. Here too a dry and smarty; or the nose is stuffed up ard uncoinfo' tanie. Here too a thorough course of home treatment The third step in the process of development is that stage which we all recognize and begin to call by the name of "bad cold." Sneezing run ning of the nose, usually coughing, perhaps a sore throat and aching and that so characteristic mean feeling. Even here strenuous home methods may avail. However don't carry your faith in home treatment too far for though two-thirds of colds may be averted; by following the methods out lined below there are' certain danger signals that must be observed and a physician called at once, viz: 1. Severe headache, 2. face ache, 3. ear ache, 4. pain in the chest, f. bad sore throat, 6. fever. 'f Ten Rule for Home Treatment. First; Take a dose of castor oil or salts or better still a high ettem. Second; Take a hat foot bath for at least half an hour in water as hot as can be borne this draws the blood away from the congested part. Third; Dnnk all the water possible and eat very lightly even omitting a meal or two is good this favors elimi nation. Fourth ; Take a hot bath followed by a cold sponge this stimulates the skin to activity. Fifth; Keep inside and warm or in bed if possible. Rest is the great physician. Sixth: At bed time drink a large amount of lemonade, hot. and follow with another hot footbath. Seventh. In the morning take a cool sponge and rub DRY. Eight: The one safe home medi cation which will in the maiority of cases effect a cuve i to fake three drops of camphor on a half teaspoon ful om sup;ar, repeating every half . 'hut till four doses are taken. - Nineth: If an" particular part is attacked as the throat or chest anoly a cold pack. The results are offen man elous. This must be applied carefully a follows. Dampen a piece of cotton or linen i:i cold water and apply snugly to the part, cover this with .1 heavy piece of flannel which er. tends beyond the edges of the cot ton and is held firmly against the part. Tenth: Have an atomiser and spray vour throat and nose. Use it twice a day whenever cold and other diseases are about. Use it oftener when vou know von have been exposed or when the disease has really manifest itself. This is one of the ve'v best methods of avoiding any disease. Try it. NOTICE TO TAXPAYERS.
