When these two gases get together they become wet. This often happens when in dry territories. Water is found ill many placos and has mauy uses. It is found principally in oceans, lakes, rivers, milk, on the knees, on tho brain, and more recently it has been seen on some bars, One becomes ac? customed to having water in oceans, lakes, rivers, etc., ond men are gutting used to having it given to tin in over burs, but having it on the knee or on the brain is nuother thing. When water is oil the kin e, the condi? tion is easily remedied by the nillictod person weiring pumps. If you suspect you have water on the brain, have a small hole bored in your head. If water runs out, you have "water on the brain"; if nothing runs out, you have no bruins, Noah was the lirst prohibitionist, He lived for forty days and forty nights on water. The strain was too much for him, however, and ns soon as he got out of the Ark he beat It for fermented grape juice and drank himself cock-eyed. Water lulls upon us in the foi m of nun, snow, hail and water taxes. It springs out of the ground at the slight? est provocation und many places in the world have hot and cold water without having to pay any janitor for neglect tug the boiler and the furnace. A large perceniage of the hu? man body is wuter and this percentage is rapidly increas? ing, since the advent of prohi? bition last July. In the not far distant future burial will con? sist of bel?g poured back into the ground. Water is used to lloat ships, run factories, to make ice from, and some people use it to bathe in. This latter, however, is not recommended The following is one man's idea of water: Water is a vyoiulcrful blcMlnjfj tlood lei washtlig necks ami cars, ,'iisi ill,- i'iing ler lakes and tiver llldia|?'llhihlc fur COIICrCtO I'il'ts, Nice t..j.uli beneath Iho bridges, Swell fur making lain ami ink.

County Highway and Railroad Track to Arno, The custom adopted by pres? ent civilization is by erecting suitable Memorials to their graves. There is no mure drear? ily or gloomier sight than a sunk? en, neglected grave, grown up in weeds and briars. The world forgets the words, "Honor thy father arid mother, that thy days may be long." All do not do it wilfully. Putting it ofl, and waiting (or spare money, is of? ten the cause; it is unwise tu put up Grave Markets above your means, The fact that you have remembered the grave of your departed .stands for itself. Under the present system of from manufacturer direct to you. prices of Memorials have been reduced to such a low point that their cost is in reach of all. Joe IViiner & Sons, ROGERSVILLE. TENN.

Swat the Cougher He is More Dangerous Than a Man With a Pistol lie causc He Scatters His Shots. Richmond, Va., Oct. I?.? This is the timo when colds, coughs, grip, whooping cough ami inhereulosis an- widcl) spread. During the school day* of curl) fall, when people have ant changed tu heavy clothing, had colds start and the cougher spreads t hem abroad. The State Hoard of Health declares that the cotighur is more dangerous than the pistol shooter. The latter may miss Iiis mark; or at the worst, he ir apt to hit only one victim; hut the cougher llings broadcast into the air the germs of any nose and throat disease, or nil) lung trouble he may have, and whoever comes along and breathes into Iiis system some of these germs is very likely to catch the disease. "If you must cough," says the h o a I t h commissioner, "cough into your handkerchief. If your liuudkerchief is not available bend your head tow? ard the ground when you have to COligh. The germs are not j apt to come up froin the ground alter the next fellow, hut Hioj take a long lime to lall if you] cough straight out into the air. " This is the time also to warn children against pulling pen- j cils or lingers into their mouths mid also against using the com-; moil drinking cup So much of the child's energy is expend? ed in growth that it has little' left for the building of n sis lance, mi the youngster is more1 susceptible than the adult to almost every disease; but if he can he taught to avoid Ihel promiscuous cougher and made lo keep OV?r) thing except his food and toothbrush out of his IllOUtil, there is little or no chance of getting diphtheria, scarlet fever or any of the iron bles mentioned above." Bvery community has its' spirit. With some it is one of honor and integrity and pro. gressive intellectuality. With others the spirit of greed, gouge, repression and retro? gression predominates. The tirst attains its aim in life, while the latter aims no llighcl than that which it attains. We of this community have our choice. We can progress with the march of time, or we can procrastinate while tune march? es by. This is an age when men do things, or they do noth? ing There is no middle of the road course. The man who has the will to grasp his opporluni ties also has the power to make them. That is What we should I do. a/\a J\tL XX Ouaii J i i Cf>ammoui\l lrhrafl(jyuinn> By WILLIAM IJ l?
