A suggestion has been made, and be organized a Truck Growers' Association. "co-ope ration.'' take to ''fix prices;" but it could undertake to see that all members of that association received for their home grown stuff the highest price fixed by the markets of the world. Quite a good deal of "truck" is grown here by people who are not reg ularly in the business; and quite a good deal more is grown by small gar deners; and both of these classes sell to the local market and for what ever price may be offered. In so doing they not infrequently sell at about half the price they could get elsewhere. Tomatoes that sold on the local market here last week at 60 cents, were selling in the cities at a dollar. The growers, by not knowing the market; by not having any agent to know the market for them; by not raising in quantities large enough to ship, lost 50 per cent of the real value of their tomatoes. more 'e think it a good one, that there The benefit of this would be, The association would not undertake, or should not under This would all be overcome by organization and co-operation. local market would be made to pay what the foreign market called for, less freight; the small growers would combine and ship in car load lots, gardening would then become a systematized, organized, regulated business, and much more profitable than it is now. The Truck That would not only redound to the good of those now in the business, but by dignifying the business and showing the profit to be derived therefrom, others would he encouraged to engage in it, and the stranger hearing of our shipments and prices and profits, would want to come and share that prosperity with us. And there Is room enough for all; for the world is our market, and the people of the cities, rich and poor alike, are hungry and begging all the year round for the ''truck'' that is grown in the country. "What is everybody's business is nobody's business;" so let some one who is in the truck garden business call a meeting of all others who are in that business, and organize. It will help not only their business, but It will help the town and county by increasing that business and bringing "new money" out of the cities in exchange for "truck" that may be grown upon what are now waste places. <y NOT WORTH THE PRICE. We knew him when, as we term It. he "started in life," and up to a cer tain point there was nothing In or about his life experiences which marked him as outside the ordinary or commonplace. His father died when he was a mere lad, leaving to the widow and the son nothing except a more or lass pleasant memory and a number of unpaid bills. Then came peddling pa pers, running errands for the grocer on Saturdays, and finally equipped with a working knowledge of the multiplication table and the names of a few stale capitals safely filed away in his head for future reference, he started on life's well worn road, the old, old road we are all traveling and very much, too, In the same way as did our fathers before Some men out grow the biting, scarring sting of early poverty and privation, but he did. us. never As a young man, after his mother had laid away his little bag of hies and he had taken up and entered Into the real grind and push of things, he would clench his hands and grit his teeth every time he thought of what he and mother did not have of worldly goods and comforts, and then he would say to himself, 'Til have it, at any cost I'll have money." Did he get It? He surely did, and so will any man of ordinary ability if he dedlcat his life to that one purpose and does not stop to count the cost. mar cs The years have come and the years have gone. Recovering from a long and severe Illness, this millionaire sat In our office yesterday, the tears which In his manhood he did not try to conceal, dropped on his folded hands, and he said: "My God, If T could only go ha -k and undo some things, he said, "will ever know how pitifully small are the things which he thought big and how really big are th : little things of life until he has taken a peek at that larger world and then oraes back to this. The balance of my life," he continued, "will be devote 1 to doing something for others; hut oh, how I wish I had looked at things twenty years ago as I do today."_ Will Brownell of Kalamazoo. No man," ■* The Shelby county delegation to the Tennessee legislature, of which so many "The Shel Memphis is the big part, has been traded with and swapped off ■times and oft, that the Commercial Ap >eal is moved to remark: by delegation once swore to stand as a unit for certain Now they are against these things they swore for. They were elected as Demo crats—regular Democrats. They stood with the regulars for a short ses sion. They were for the Nashville charter bill. measures. They were for holding out against the fusionist boitera. Now they are for killing the Nashville charter. They are for the present election law. They are not trusted long er by regulars and they are not looked on with enthusiasm by bolters. They do not know today what they may do tomorrow, change his mind and 'deliver' them to some other force or order them home or 'can' them. When a man surrenders his right of action Into the hands of another man there is not much of him left that will command respect." The chickens have come home to roost. The Commercial Appeal, so loud now In its lamentations, has done more than any other one agency all these years to foster and encourage that rotten political dvnasty which will not permit good men to go to the legislature from Shelby county. for Crump may It la reported that enemies of Theodore Bilbo, candidate for Lieutenant Governor, have invaded the sacred city of the dead and with ghoulish hands photographed a long neglected grave of his first wife. If that be true, and all the mean things they say of Bilbo be true, it would yet nearly a man for voting for him, to rebuke so malicious and mendacious an act. excuse » When a man goes wrong his wife, as a rule, will hunt around and man ufacture an excuse for him. When a woman goes wrong she would have no pity shown her were It not for God and her mother. There seems to be a tie up on the work the N. O. £ N. E. R. R. Co. has promised to have done on the crossings of Main and Mobile streets, porations have such winning ways to make people dislike them.

He's loaded down in safety salted down; he's gathered with bonds and stocks, and mortgages and deeds; and when he takes his daily walks, some victim's bosom bleeds.

To add a dol head he'd m head, hed turn the widow from her lar to his stack; shack, the sick man from his bed. I'd rather gnaw at husks and stones, or grovel in a den, than have a pile of shining bones that's wrung from needy men. When you have lost your wad of dough, and all your plans are wrecked, you then may to the poor house go, and keep your self-respeet. But If you torture folks in debt, through all your grinding years, and rake in dollars moist with sweat, and blood, and women's tears, you'll learn to hate yourself some day, when death Is drawing night; and when they file your bones away, no soul will heave a sigh.—Walt Mason.

Four lit tle barefooted boy* and girl* who were paddling In the dust for the schoolhouse In the distance, were In vited to "Jump In" and they also with grinning faces, proceeded to Jump.

When dad come down to breakfast this morning he looked as chipper and pleased as a man what's just been elected alderman. He kissed ma on her curl papers and said: "Lizzie, It's great to be alive a mornln' like this. The sun'shines so bright, the birds sing so gay and the old world smells so sweet and fresh, let's take the boy and go out and spend a day at the lake. T feel as though T would like to take a little vacation. T haven't had one in 30 years and T know It would <1o you a lot of good, too." Ma Ju*t gave dad one of them parboiled looks and said: "Henry.
