ATCHLEY Dr. V. A. Atchley, pastor of the Broad Street Baptist church, Knox ville, filled the pulpit of the Central Baptist church in this cily Sunday morning and evening. Large congre gations heard him and were pleased with his able sermons. The Central Baptist church is with out a pastor, owing to the resignation of the Rev. T. Q. Davis, who has ac cepted a call to the First Baptist church at Bonhain, Texas, and who left today to e.nter upon his work. A call will be given Dr. Atchley from the Central church, but he told the congregation here that he was not hunting a pas torate."

C, Octob2r 17. The people of the Bouth should keep at home the thousand i of dollars which they are annually sending into the West for meat and the farmers of the South can bring about this much de sired jgftndition and can at the same time realize handsome profits for them selves if thty will engage in the raising of hogs more extensively, declares Professor Dan T. Gray of the Ala-j bama Polytechnic Institute who has charge of the department of animal in dustry at Auburn and is also an ex pert in animal husbandry in the bu reau of animal indnslry of the United States department of agriculture, in Farmers' Bulletin 411, entitled "Feed ing Hogs in the South," just issued by the department. "Hogs can be raised as cheaply in the South as anywhere else and in many cases more cheaply, but hogs cannot be raised profitably on corn alone," says Prof Gray, and in the Bulletin he gives in full detail the preper methods of feeding hogs in or der to realize a profit. Figures are given showing the results obtained from the use of various feeds in exjte riments conducted at different points in the South. The Bulletin should prove of much value to any Southern farmer and its circulation will doubtless result in a greatly increased activity in hog raising. President W. W. Fin ley of the Southern Railway company, who is greatly interested In having the South raise its food supplies at home, will be glad to have a copy of this Bulletin sent to any farmer in the JEFF McCARN FOLLOWING TAYLOR F i -General Jeff McCarn is following Senator Taylrr through the state at tempting to offset the work of the sen ator. He had as well try to turn the Watauga river up stream. Jeff could do it less than anyone, but no one could do it. He wsa greeted by an au- i dience of 700 or 800 lawt night, republi cans large'y predominating, and was introduced by Esq. E. B. Hensley. He made as good a speech as any dem ocrat could in the interest of a republi can of Hooper's size and admitted the late deal with the republicans in the August election by telling how he used to do when driving a wagon. When a man helped him pull over a bad piece of road he always went back and helped his benefactor, lit is trying now to get democrats to elect a repub fican governor but his effort will be as unsuccessful as his own-race was for judge in Davidson county in August. GOVERNOR TOLD BY Appeals to Voters to Support Him and Save the State in a Speech Tha,t Rings with Truth Mr. and Mrs. Allen Harris have re turned from a visit to friends and relatives. this line of animal production into the farming system. One of these reasons is mentioned above, the money spent for meat by the southern people would be kept at home. Another is the in fluence it would probably have on the price oi cotton, it win never be pos sible for the south to control the price of cotton until the southern farmer places himself in such a position that he can hold the crop after it is produc ed. So long as all the farmers are re quired to sell the entire crop of cattle each fall, so long will its price will be an unreliable and unstaple one. The only way by which a farmer can place South who will address a request to jhimsel in a position that he where he trains, for this will not have to sell all his cotton each Back on his native heath, where on the banks of the Watauga he built "Castles in the Air" and dreamed away in his boyhood days of occupying the gubernatorial chair and of donning the senatorial toga, Senator Robert L. Taylor today opened his campaign for governor as the nominee of the "regular democracy." Since 1878, when he made his first race for congress, the senator has been "making this place." When the sen ator then rode over from "Happy Val ley " this was known as Johnson's Sta tion, but it always has been an omen for success with the senator to speak in this town, and therefore he opened his gubernatorial campaign here. He came to the city with the buoyant spirit of youth, and with the laughter and song of the halcyon days of the seventies, when he first tasted the sweetest of po litical success. Quite a contrast on the senator's com ing today. Thirty-five years ago, so old people say, he rode a mule from this place on bis initial campaign for congress. When asked about it, the senator said that it was a democratic mule and that it had never stumbled with him. Monday he came in special car, being the first candidate for a state office who ever maie such a tour to this city, it is said. Many people came from off the Doe and Watauga rivers and from the rolling foothills of the Unakas.
