Truck farming is a paying industry in this county, and, there is
of it than one would think; and it is on the increase.
A suggestion has been made, and
be organized a Truck Growers' Association.
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.
'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
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.
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
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.
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

As a young man, after his mother had laid away his little bag of

The Shelby county delegation to the Tennessee legislature, of which
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
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.
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.

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.
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.
