Quite a lot of routine business wa3 dis
posed of.
The sick brothers were reported as
but little better.
One petition for initiatory Was pre"
sented, read and referred to committee
of investigation. Bro. C. C. Clinton of
Wanette, Okla. was granted a transfer
card. The initiatory was conferred up
on three applicants in good style. One
applicant was elected to the 2nd degree
Bro J. M. Brown with his broken
arm was in attendance and said it was
a mistake about him trying to climb
telephone pole, his arm being broken
through awkwardness of hands raising
the pole, however he is doing well and
hopes to be able to resume his work in
a few days.
The committee on celebration of the
92nd anniversary of the order were not
ready to make report and upon motion
were granted further time.
it seems that the Kebekan Lodge is
a "flying". They report an extra good
meeting on 24th inst. and one member
was added by initiation. They want all
eligible to join them. Go ahead and
join.
A Plain Proposition to Renters
We lend money at 5 ber cent, simple
interest to buy or build a home or pay
off a mortgage. Our interest rate is so
" low and monthly payments so small, a
home is within the reach of all. You
pay only $7.50 per month on each $1000,
plus 5 per cent, simple interest. We
can show you a safe and profitable
method of saving your earnings. Ev-
ery day you delay adopting some defin
ite method for owning your own home
or accumulating your earnings you lose
in dollars and cents one day's rent, or
lose one days' earnings on money not
wisely invested. You have "intended"
making this start long enough, now
make it. Write today for our illustrat
ed booklet explaining our plan in detail.

Bank Robbed
mi t- i
ine ranK oi .Lancaster was
robbed Monday night, severa
men being engaged in the work.
Four explosions of dynamite were
made and the vault and safe were
wrecked. About $2,900 was se
cured and the robbers made good
their escape. Cashier W. T.
Simpson heard the first explosion
and started to the bank, but was
fired on and ordered to go back
to his house. He fired several
shots at the robbers and retired.
It took about an hour and half to
secure the money, and while all
the people were awakened by the
noise no one but the cashier made
any attempt to drive off or cap
ture the thieves.
Advantages of Schools
When it is proposed to build an insti
tution of learning or to induce one to
establish in a town the first and only
thought of a majority of peop'e is con
cerned about the commercial advantag
es which will acrue from a popular and
flourishing school, and indeed this is a
consideration. It makes no difference
what one's business is, that business
will be better, and more satisfactory,
and the proceeds will be larger. Real
estate will constantly advance, and the
population will grow, and taxes will on
this account gradually decrease.
The above advantages, though always
present, constitute the lowest plane
upon which the benefits of an in
stitution of learning can be pitched.
The fact that a radiation of general in
telligence is incidentally going on among
the citizenship is by no means a negli
gible consideration. Gradually the pre
vaning ideas ana meais or lite are
changed. Littleness, contrariness, and
the various other enemies to civic de
velopment and industrial progress are
eliminated, sordid semsnness gives
way to patriotism gradually under the
influence of the warm, bouyant life of
happy ambitious college boys and girls.
The cultivation of the taste, the devel
opment of the aesthetic nature, will
ead to an acute sense of civic pride
which in turn will clean up the waste
places, look after the sanitation and
beautify the city in general. One can
not fail to realize the particular and
peculiar moral benefits which come in
ciden tally, not to speak of the questions
which are the direct concern of the
faculty and the school itself. New
ideas of pleasure and diversion arise;
new sources of literary and musical
culture, lecturers, lyceum courses,
athletics, debates, declamatory con
tests, etc. The ambitions and life pur
poses of your sons and daughters are
pitched upon a higher plane. Talents
which you nor they did not dream of
are discovered and developed.
Cookeville has many natural advan
tages and many educational possibilities.
Let us make it one of the first school
towns in the state. Co-operation and
enthusiasm are indispensible. Indiffer
ence is a crime in the light of such pos
sibilities as are now before us. Let
everybody work for the new college.

Said
' 'The fellow who tries to attract business
without advertising, is like the fellow who
throws his sweetheart a silent kiss in the
darkr He knows what he is doing but no
body else does."
That is the reason we are advertising:
We want your business and take this meth
od of letting you know we want it. We
want it for our mutual benefit.
Come in and let us talk it over.
We pay 4 per cent, interest on time deposits
