Traded road along the old itage road" route, making ready for the coming of the grad ing crew. That is the thing to do. Other roads should be placed in readiness, and all hands work together. The celebrities on the camping expedition in the Maryland hills, no doubt had a most enjoyable time, but we venture to wager that the President, Edison, Ford, and the others, never had any bigger time than the fellows who pitch their tente on the banks of the historic Cypress, Tuscumbia, or Hatchie. . The allies owe us about $9,000, 000,000, and the fellows in Wash ington who go there to look af ter our business are trying to figure on a plan to collect the debt. Some of them want to let it go, and others want to collect the interest and '.'renew," and others, the latter, being in the majority do n,ot know any thing about it, and do not care what becomes of it. The viglantees in Memphis ard Shelby county have laid the law down to the violator, and it re mains to be seen just how much they will do. The law is all-powerful, and can and will be vindi cated, if the people will just so determine. The fellow who says that the law can not be enforced, is not very strong on the law, when you size him up just right. "Judd" Brooks, the very effi cient county agent of Madison county, accompanied by Mrs. Brooks, passed through the coun ty last Wednesday morning en route to their old home at Mt. Pleasant, Maury County, Tenn. Mr. Brooks has done a wonderful work in our neighboring county, and it is our desire that McNairy county may soon secure the ser vices of a competent county agent With one like Brooks, we would soon be getting results. Well Known Citizen Dead U. S. (Lis) Brown,' aged 55 years, died last Sunday at ths home of Tennis Moore in Chester county. Mr. Brown was for many years a sufferer from rupture which was the immediate cause of his death. He was a good man, and was well known in nearly every section of the county. He had never married and as long as his parents lived he resided .with them and devoted all his time .to making the last years of his aged parents their happiest : Since their death he made his home with his brother, '.Dave Brown, of the third district. . Monday the remains of Mr. Brown were laid to rest in Buena Vista cemetery beside those whom he - loved. The funeral was conducted by H. D. Maxedon, one of the best men in the coun ty, and a man who had known the deceased all his life. Bro Maxedon's talk was most'im pressive. The deceased is survived by three brothers, Dave, of the third district, Cornelius, of Finger, and W. M. Brown, of Selmer. We extend our sincerest sym pathy to the bereaved. Mentality of Tropical Peoples.' Te tmotlooal mentality of tropical peoples Is well known. It Is not only a remarkable belief, bat a fact easily demonstrated by scientific observation and will be proved that the excessive us of sugar could produce such re tilts. Only recently a Bengalese dentist has found that tbe blood of tropical peoples contains a higher per cent of sucar than ethers.

' Fewer horses on the farm The Fordson does the work of from four to six horses.' Less farm help One man with a Fordson can do more work easier and with less expense than two men with horses. More money for the farmer A farmer with a Fordson can raise more crops easier and with less expense. He therefore makes more profit. GOOGH & LATTA - SELMER, :- TENN.
