In the preparation of "Talks to Farmers" we do not claim all the matter used will ba original. Where we find another has expressed well what we want to say we will use good material in a good cause and the author will accept this as our apology for doing so. To the courtesy and progressive spirit of the newspapers of the State, we are indebted for the privilege of reaching you each week for a heart to heart talk about matters of vital interest to every farmer in the State. The Department of Agriculture was created to promote agriculture and enforce the laws for the protection rf the agricultural interests of the State. The articles to be printed each week will be plain, straight-forward talks to farmers on subjects that will be helpful to the farmer who has not had the advantages of an agricultural education. We cannot live without cultivating the ground. We must destroy useless plants and cultivate the useful ones. The work necessary to do this is call ed agriculture or farming. All other vocations among men have grown out of the necessities of the farmer or agriculturist, and ail are in a large measure dependent upon him for support. The farmer needed tools to culti vate the soil; to supply his demand we have the blacksmith. He needed houses to live in: for that reason we have the carpenter. He needed schools for his children; thus creat- ng the demand for the teacher. He needed iron and steel; for that rea son we have the miner. His religious wants created a need for the preach er. His legal rights made necessary government and laws; for that reason we have judges, lawyers and officers. When sickness came he needed a doc tor, and increased trade called for traders and transportation, and all the mechanism of banking and com merce has .sprung up to meet his re quirements. Successive generations have multiplied these; science, art and invention have contributed to the rapid development of society, un til now we have a vast and complex civilization, dependent upon agricul ture, mining and manufacturing for support. Agriculture is easily the chief of these three, because we can not live without bread, and bread comes from the ground. No amount of education, learning, science, invention, industry or skill, can do away with the necessity for cultivating the ground. The farmer must feed himself and family as well as the vast number of non-producers; his calling or profes sion is therefore the most useful of all professions. If this be true, it should be considered the most honor able. When this country was being set tled up, the land was rich and cheap. When a field did not produce a fair crop, it was thrown out and fresh land cleared. After the land was taken up and the most desirable lands had been cleared, the same fields had to be cultivated year after year, taking the plant food out of the soil. If nothing is returned to the soil in the way of manure or fertilizer, or proper rotation of crops, the soil becomes exhausted and less profitable to cul tivate each year. The census reports show that Ten nessee ' is producing less of wheat and oats than was produced ten years ago. While our population has increased, prices have increased, and if the farmers had kept their lands improved so that they could have sun plied the demand, the money that is going into other States could be go ing into the pockets of our own farm ers. While too much of it is going away, we have some progressive farmers who have taken poor, run down farms and have improved them, so that each year the production on their farms has increased and they have been profiting by the prevailing hish prices. , Tennessee farmers should supply the demand in Tennessee at least for farm products, and should ship to other States as well. We have the ad vantage of climate, variety of soils -)'k1 other favorable conditions, and we can restore the fertility of the soil. Some farmers have the notion that -ripHtific farming is out of their 'each that they have not the edu ction or the money to undertake it. We have abundant proof that men vith limited cducatiof. and less money, have started at the bottom and have grown Independent. Others um do the same; but you must begin it the foundation and build from the Ti-eund. You never knew a man to make a success building a fence", a house or a barn, who tried to start at the top. The object of these let ters is to help you get started right, and to show you that you can do what others have done; but we must begin at the foundation and build in order. The foundation of farming is the soil, so in our next week's let ter W'3 propose to talk to you about soils. Let us get a better knowledge of Boil3 and how to classify them, how to improve them, how to pre pare and cultivate crops on them, so that we will not rob them, but rather increase their fertility each year.

Olive Baptist Church Sunday-School Sunday afternoon. The enthusiasm that had been in jected into this meeting was demon strated when nearly every man pres ent took occasion to give his views ! on the topic under discussion. It was an interesting meeting for men, and indeed much good is said to have resulted therefrom. Rev. John Ridley, an ardent worker in the men's organized class movement, pre sided. Mr. Rainey King, secretary of the class, read one of the best papers that has ever been presented to an organized Sunday-school .movement in this city. The paper was so well rendered and bubbled over with so many good things, that it was unan imously requested that the paper be read to the entire Sunday-school next Sunday morning. Deacon James W. Martin, organizer and teacher of the class, made an interesting address, whereby he made known his plans to increase the membership from 112 to 500 if possible, by the next session of the Sunday-School Congress. He stated that it was his desire to touch every man in Nashville, if possible, by this class movement. It is the first class in the United States to re ceive a national charter from the Me toka Organization. They propose to take an active part in whatever arises that will develop the men of Nashville. The class has the hearty indorsement of Rev. C. H. Clark, pas tor, and has among its members a splendid array of workers in the churches and Sunday-schools. HOWSE BROS.

A report of the committee of three consisting of Rev. C. H. Clark, pastor of Mt. Olive Baptist Church; Rev. E. M. Lawrence, superintendent of Mis sions for the Tennessee Baptist State Convention, and Rev. G. B. Taylor, pastor of the Second Baptist Church, who have been at work on the most available and convenient route from Nashville to Pittsburg, Pa., where the National Baptist Convention will hold its next annual session, report that they have selected the L. & N. and Pennsylvania roads. They have decided to leave Nashville Monday evening, September 11, at 8:35. A splendid high back day coach and a standard sleeper have already been ordered for this trip to be placed at the disposal of the Nashville dele gates and those who go with the party from this city. In ad dition to this, they contemplate making up a Baptist Special to run through to Pittsburg without change. These plans look bright, because al ready information comes from New Orleans that the Southern Louisiana delegates with two coaches, the Mo bile and Birmingham delegates with two coaches, and the Chattanooga delegates are to join the Nashville c'elegation making up in all about seven coaches. The Memphis people are planning to join this special train at Bowling Green, Ky. The schedule provides that in leaving Nashville, Monday night, they will reach Cincinnati Tuesday morning, September 12th, where they will be joined by the Indiana and Southern Ohio delegates. It is stated that a dining car for the convenience of all would be attached to the special train at Cincinnati. They are due to reach Pittsburg, Tuesday afternoon, Sep tember 12th, at 5:20. Already the Nashville sleeper has eighteen occu pants signed up. The entire report seems to meet the approval of the Nashville City Ministers' Confer ence. The committee desires co state that the convenience of this train will be at the disposal of all who desire to take advantage of the trip to go East at this time. Three people, who are not delegates to tho convention, have already selected these dates for leaving 'Nashville taUing reservation in the sleeper. Further information, &ays Chairman (Mark, will be handed out at the city ticket office of the L. & N. R. R. Co., bv Mr. IT. C. Wallis, D. P. A., or Mr. Mustain Asst. P. A. CITY FEDERATION MEET.
