WADE-We Hit' authorized to announce Hon.
V. V. H'adk of Gibson County ns a candidate
for re-election to tin: ollleo of Attorney General
of the district composed of the counties of lien
ton, Carroll, Crockett, Gibson, Haywood and
Henry. Subject to the action of the Democratic
Benton County has been taxing
her energies for years helping
other counties elect attorneys-general.
Wo feel that it is her time
to demand some return of the fav
ors, and with Tom C. llyo in the
race, we feel shuro sho will get her
dues. So far as wo have been able
to learn, Mr. Rye has not expressed
any desire to relinquish his law
practice, but he is in the hands of
the people, and when thoy call him
to a higher duty he can do naught
but accept. One of the strongest
arguments presented by the friends
of Mr. Rye as to his worthiness to
discharge the duties of attorney
general is that he has always proven
himself capable of successfully
managing his own affairs, and one
who can ably attend to his own
business is likely to possess those
qualities necessary to enable them
to look after and protect the inter
ests of the commonwealth. He
has gained wide popularity as an
attorney of superior legal qualifi
cations, which has placed him in
the front rank, and no one can
question his qualifications and fit
ness for the office. "We are not ad
vised as to what Mr. Rye's inten
tions are in the matter, but we feel
that we voice the sentiment of the
people of Benton County with hard
ly an exception when we say that
the voters of the thirteenth judicial
circuit will make no mistake when
they elect Tom C. Rye attorn ey
Get paper and pencil and calcu
late how far a man usually travels
in preparing, planting, cultivating
and gathering thirty acres in any
kind of a cr4op. Then figure what
would be the saving in this item
alone if the same crop was raised
on fifteen acres. This ought to be
enough to convert any sensible man
to the theory of intensive farming.
With proper preparation of the
soil and cultivation of the crop,
with the use of a little fertilizer, it
is almost possible to get the same
crop from fifteen acres that you
would get from thirty acres half
prepared and cultivated. Did you
ever stop and think of the great
difference? Try it and learn for
yourself. There is economy in it,
and economy is one of the founda
tion stones which' leads to success
in any business or employment.
A prominent financial writer,
who isn't subsidized by the trusts,
declares that "the business of this
country is now passing through a
period of emotional insanity," and
warns investors to beware of the
flood that is -bound to result when
the water that has been put into
the big colorations breaks loose.
