They say state and national matters are entirely separate, and that the present election is purely a state mat ter. Let's see; who was it Gof. Hoop er appointed toxa seat in the United States Senate Was it not Newell Sanders? Looks like state and nat ional affairs may mix to some extent Governor Hooper said the other day that George Welch voted against ev ery good bill and for every bad one in the senate two years ago. He claims 27 good laws were "-passed in that session of the legislature. Welch repl es that ht voted for 24 of them and introduced two, and proves bis claims by giving the page or the jour nal where the vote is recorded. MILLET SEED GARRISON The Crossville Chronicle is still making faces at the Herald man. It is fortunate for the owners of certain patches of Hungarian grass near Cross ville that the "wild ass of Putnam" does not frequent that vicinity or the crop might be destroyed. It is said to grow as fast as Uec in the Chroni cle office. There s a tale connected with these grass patches. Hon. A. L. Garrison os Crossville is at the head of the seed department of Tennessee. Abe told some of his neighbors that millet was a fine crop to grow and that the state had some choice millet seed. He sent them some and when it came up It was Hungarian grass. Yet Hooper claims he only appoints men who are qualified. B. BOX SUPPER There was a box supper at Oonasau- ga, Saturday night, Oct. 10, which end ed with a prize for the prettiest girl present.
