BAKERSFIELD, CALIF. Dear Friends : After so long a time I am now making good my promise to write you. We are well and enjoying life in having much to do. Our trip was very interesting as well as some what tiresome. We had snow all the way from Kentucky to St. Louis and until we were most across the state of Kansas. But from there on across Oklahoma, a part of Texas, Arizona and New Mexico it was much more pleasant, as we crossed the sand des erts and through the mountains. We arrived here on Sunday morning in time for breakfast, and in conjunction with that meal we had one commodity of the many, many good things the lad'es of Cookeville prepared for us, which was eaten in the spirit of grat itude and a never to be forgotten es teem and appreciation of their many kindnesses. Long live such a faithful band. We find many of the people here to be of a grateful and kind-hearted dis position. Yet you find many more who are world-bound than you do in the South. But "hings are beginning to take on a change, if what the people say be true. The lines are being more t'ghtly drawn for righteousness than ever before. Our church seems to try to do every thing to make it pleasant and satisfy the longing we might have for Sunny Tennessee. Perhaps there is no field with great er possibilities for a young man than here; provided he has the nerve and grit to go up against things, for a fel low does'nt last long here if he hasn't ' a mind to work. But a man in any profession can do well here if he will. The town has two main lines of rail road, the S. P. ancTS. P.; has some 25,900 population, twelve or fifteen churches, a number of public schools and two high schools. By the way, I was glad to see 'hat you are to have a county high school. Here goes three cheers for the school. Good! I had thought that about all that kept Ba kersneld from being the greatest place on the map was that it did not take Cookev'lle into its corporate limits. Glad to note that Charles Gracey has been appointed to a good position. Sorry to note the deaths of so many. Some of them will be much missed. But after all, a man should live so that h ,'U be missed when he is gone. 1 see from the religious press and your - paper, as well as br letter, that the church is doing things. Tnat is good news and as it should be. Mr. Charles McClain of Cookeville, who has been here for some time, nas been calling around to see us. He ap pears to be doing well. You should se the gardens here. They are great for this time of year. Hafe had vegetables all winter, while we can look out on the mountains 25 miles away and see snow most any time. How It that for a change. Went out yesterday to see the bird man take his flight, hut he failed to get "over the mountain, as you no doubt have already read. We ha7e here a strong corps of Dreachers. with one exception. All or vniin or man exp.Artt. twn or three S have the honor of being the secretary of our Ministerial union. We are now launching a campaign for church go- lng, as well as one for California dry in 1914. Remembering . all with kindest re gards, I ftm as ever, Your friend, W. M. McClearen. WILL ERADICATE CATTLE TICK Southern Cattlemen Organize to . Conduct Active Campaign for More and Better Live Stock in the South. VILL IMPROVE THE BREEDS Cattle Tick the Greatest Hindrance to Stock Growing in South Post Costs Ovar $100,000,000 Annually Prominent Men at Conven tion Discuss Boot Plans Tick Must Go. The Southern Cattlemen's associa tion was organized at Montgomery, Ala., July 9, 1513. A hundred or more cattle growers and shippers, national and state live stock officials and rep resentatives of the stock yards and railroad interests were present and took an active interest in the organ ization of the association. The avowed object of the associa tion are as follows: 1. The eradication of the cattle tick. 2. The development of a profitable cattle industry in the south. 3. The promotion of effective and uniform national and state live stock sanitary legislation. The means which have been Bug Seated for the accomplishment of these objects are in part as follows: 1. The holding of meetings for the discussion of live stock problems and the dissemination of live stock Infor mation. 2. The organisation of local or county associations which will pro mote the work of tick eradication and the improvement of the cattle of the locality by the introduction of pure bred bulls. 3. By assisting the small live stock producer In marketing his products. It has been suggested that an activo field agent may be employed by. the association to assist local cattlemen In the attainment of these purposes. At Memphis, Tenn., on December 10th and 11th, 1913, the srst regular meeting was held and a constitution and by-laws adopted axing the an nual membership dues at $2.90 per an nam. At that meeting a large lum ber of cattlemen were In atteadaaoe from all the southern states, from Kentucky to Florida and from Vir ginia to New Mexico, and enthusiasm ran high. Every southern cattleman owes it aa his duty to join this as sociation, and bankers, professional men and merchants can well afford to give it encouragement and assist ance. The initial work of the associa tion will be directed toward the erad ication of the cattle tick. The work will be carried on In co operation with the government, the Cattle Growers associations of the WOMANS' MISSIONARY SOCIETY The Womans' Missionary Society of the Me'hodlst church met at the ch urch Monday afternoon. A very good attendance of the members were pros ent. This being the first meeting in the month, dues were In order to be paid, and this being the last month 'of the quarter it was urged that all dues be paid so that reports could be made without delay. It is very grati fying to say that most of the members are enlisted in both the Foreign and Home departments. The society vot- ' ed to have an Easter Bazaar on the Friday before Easter, and of course that means for all to "get busy." After the- business session the meet ing was concluded by a prayer ser vice. Reporter. Sidestep Calomel It's Poison to the Human System -and Works Great Harm . .

An active campaign for members Is contemplated, and sufficient funds will be raised to employ a field agent to assist' in organising county associa tions and in otherwise promoting the work. Dr. Talt Butler, progressive farmer, Memphis, Tenn., was appoint ed treasurer, and will receive con tribuuons to assist In developing a greater cattle industry in the south. Every man In the south Is expected to encourage and assist this organiza- tlon in Its great work, especially every cattleman and business man. Representatives of the St Louis packers offered to assist the organiza tion in a substantial manner. WILL DISTRIBUTE EDUCATIONAL BOOKLETS Interesting Literature to Bo Sent Out By the I. H. C.

That the railroads put cheaper rates on breeding cattle. 2. That the government stop all interstate shipment of tick-Infested cattle. This includes cattle on the way to market for immediate slaugh ter as well aa animals being used for stocking purpose.

I FRENCH, Prominent Cattle Grower, Cascade, Va. As our country grows older other problems besides securing the pres ent dollar thrust themselves upon the man who handles the soil, and to the thinking men of the south, soil con servation stands in a class by Itself our most pressing problem and practical means looking to this end demands fwm year to year an ever Increasing proportion of our thought The crop that 1m indigenous to a. country is not always the crop that continues to be held in the highest es teem by the leading thinking men of that section. For instance. In the finest blue grass section of Indiana I know a leading live stock raiser and feeder who is discarding blue grass very largely for timothy, herds grass and sapling clover as pasture crops, because of the greater amount of feed the new pasture crops are pro ducing. So while the grass has not been much in evidence upon the farms over much of the south up to this time the change of sentiment that Is everywhere present among our peo ple regarding the care of the soil leads ns to believe that the matter will be tried out In a large way during the next ten years. "Grow Mors Grass. And where the trial Is intelligently made grass will surely foUow, for abundant rainfall, much sunshine, a fair quality of soil and lime makes grass growing. We have the rainfall and sunshine ever with ns, the skele ton of a good coll is ours yet and a million or two tons of lime are within our borders awaiting our awakening. CATTLE TICK MUST GO.

Agriculture means more to the peo ple at large than all other things, it Is the most vital subject now holding the nubile mind. The work of agri cultural and industrial education Is a very large and a very Important work. The Agricultural Extension De partment of the International Harvest er company of New Jersey was or ganized to develop the agricultural efficiency of the people, who are till ing the soil and producing the crops upon which we live. The work of the department la car ried oa in many ways. First, by go ing direct to the homes of the peo ple, and assisting them In their homes with their problems. Another method is the dlssemina tlon of educational literature. The department has at 'present fcr die tribution a number of interesting booklets covering many phases of ag riculture and other subjects, all of which are of special Interest on ac count of their educational value.

SEVERE BRONCHIAL COUSH Doctors Feared Lung Trouble Restored to Health by VinoL The medical profession does not be lleve that lung troubles are inherited, but a person may Inherit a weakness or tendency to them. Mrs. Kate Heckman, Springfield, Ohio, says: "A few years ago I was In a very bad run-down condition, and the physician told me I had consump tion. I tried another physician, and he told me I bad ulcers on my right lung.- I quit the physicians and started on 'VinoL' Today 1 am perfectly healthy, and that la why I recommend 'Vlnol'." Vinoi soothes and heals the Inflam ed surfaces and allays the cough, Vinol creates an appetite, strengthens the digestive organs and gives the patient strength to throw off In cipient pulmonary diseases.
