One October morning in 1854 1 made my first appearance into this great world of ours, in the grand old state of Tennessee, Overton county; grew up in Jackson and Putnam counties during h troublous times of the Civil war. Have passed through many changes and hardships subject to a poor boy's life, and so deciding in af ter years to try a country toward the settingsun, and after twenty seven years I find my mind running back to boyville. I Bee myself and boy friends in the creeks with our breeches rolled up, but yet wet, while we catch min nows . I see us clubbing the chest nut trees and p'eking up the chest nuts. I see us, both boys and girls on the old schoolhouse grounds chasing each other through the woods. I hear the old spinning wheel sing its lone some song as the broach grows larger. I hear the loom with Its beat, beat. -1 see myself with stained hands hulling walnuts to color the cloth. I see my self at the old church look'ng on in wonder as the old men and women sing 'Am I a Soldier of the Cross" and 'How Firm a Foundation." And while these thoughts are pleasant I nave a letter that makes me sad. It tells of the death of my uncle M. M. Jaquess. While he was poor in this world's goods he had laid up 'n yonder world riches that far excel the Rothchllds and Rockefellers. It would not seem natural to be at old Mt. Union and not see him sitting by the pulpit. I. J. Morgan. Cookeville Bank Cookeville, Tenn. .

Johnson I i MONTEREY ITEMS Dear Editor and Herald Family: For the first time in almost two years I am visiting dear old Monterey, en joying the cool breezes, drinking good water and having plenty of good things to cat. Do not know just bow long Ralph is going to let me stay, but I have been hurting strongly to stay on the mountain until hot weather Is over and the mosquitoes are gene. Well Monterey still looks good to me, and all my folks and friends seem so glad to see me it makes me more dissatis fied w'th Nr.shvillo and long to be back with them all again to live. I will not say Monterey has the best people on earth, but among the best. The city is all right for those who like it, but Monterey or Cookeville either one, is good enough for me. Nashville like othr cit'es and towns has its good and bad folks, its advantages and disad vantages. But of the Nashville Ban ner would take a goo view of its im morality, and the failure of its lead ing men to enforce the city laws it would not have been o ready to have slung mud at Cookeville. I am will ing for Cookeville and Monterey to have what is due them, but when any one throws off on either place I would be glnd to, know they have a better right to than any Nashville paper. I have never lived only among good peo ple since I have been in Nashville, but I would indeed be very dull and blind not to see the awful wickedness of the place. Well a little. Monterey news and I will give away to some other letter more interesting. Rev. A. P. Welch attended the Naz arene Assembly last week at Dickson. Rev.
