John II . Strfford of Gainesboro.
James W. Stafford was the
son of Joseph and Nancy Staf
ford, and first saw the light in
Tallev's Hollow. His boyhood
was spent on the farm, where
he learned that industry and
honesty were the two cardinal
principles for success in this
lie. He made these apart of
his every day life and they be
came the outstanding features
in his character.
During the Civil war his sym
pathy was with the Union and
in the spring of 1863 he joined
the Confederate army under
Col. A. E. Garrett, and was
attached to the 1st Tennesse

Republican. He voted the first
Republican ticket cast in Jackson
County and when only two
others besides his were cast
He preached the Republican doc

county. The first district, where
he has spent all of his lite,
has been a Republican strong

party well and for many years
has been chairman of the county

the Republican member on the

has served since this first be
came a law.
He served as Clerk and Mas
ter from 1886 to 1890, being ap
pointed by Judge Wade.
For twenty-five years he has
lived in the vicinity of his late
home, where his . estate is. He
conducted a store successful for
a number of years, in connect
ion with his farm. This he sold
four years ago, and since then
has devoted his time to other

and took special delight in help
ing those who needed help. No
one was ever turned away from
his door, and many will ever re
member the succor given by
his hands, now still in death.
Peace to his memory.

County Agents Rendering Great

For several years the fanwra la al

fundamentals of agriculture and stock
raising, and It Is Indeed amazing to
note bow soon they become Interest,

the others In their efforts. Another
Interesting, fact, frequently the fathe?

Value of Work Shown.
Never before since club work In ag
licuKure and home economics for boy
and girls was started has the value of
such bvn demonstrated In Tennessee
as It has during the past season, At
commnmlty, county and division fairs
their work was In evidence. Plga,
calves, poultry, field crops, cooking,
canning, etc, exhibits fitted, prepared
and shown by these future farmers
and homemakers of the great state
were wonderful. No one who saw
these splendid exhibits could help hut
bo impretftud with far reaching value
of the work from an educational
Mandpolnt ns weU as a remunerative
one. They won many valuable prizes
and In some cases where they enter
cd their products In competition with
experienced farmers und farm women
tliey were by nason of their expert
training able to tike the choicest
prizes. In growing increased yields
and In the production of livestock at
well as In household arts club hoys
and filrls have brought home to their
futliers and mothers many valuable
lessons. .
If there Is a County Agent In your
county ami he Is active In boys' and
girls' cluh work, le sure your boys
and girls join these clubs ; If you don't
see to. this you are not treating the
boys and girls' tight If you havent
a County Agent, get busy with your
neighbors and your County Court and
see to it that one Is secured without
delay. Resolve now to Iri your boys
or girls join some of the clubs which
will be reorganised In the early spring.
