There seems to be very few people, besides the editor, who are too poor to own a car. It is also very probable that the nennle who own cars in this county owe less on them, as a rule, than in many counties of the state, uur peo ple usually have tre money to buy what they need or want very badly; , No county in the state s moving forward or developing more rapidly than Cumberland. The farmers are growing better crops each year; more land is being cleared each year and farms are being enlarged. At the same time there are many thousands of acres of land that are in the wild that are as level as any prairie land of the west and farm machinery of any desired kind can be used in culti vating the fields so soon as the stumps are removed. Taking conditions as they really are, with the wonderful climate and the large amount of cheap lands available, Cumberland county is in fact one of the most wealthy counties of the state, outside of those containing the four large cities. Our people are prosper ous and happy, there are many church es, our schools are improving and m stutions of higher education are help ing most wonderfully to develop the lives of our people along the best lines. Crossville has a good city school, fine high school and the splen did Cumberland Mountain School, re cently established here by the South ern Methodist church, which will be of inestimable value to this section.
