TjLE OKNTENNIAL,
We think Marion County
frtf A
01 WjU q
should have m exhibit in the ex
position at Nashville either in
unijunction vvitn Sequatchie and
Bledsoe comities icpresehting
the Sequachee Valley, or alone.
There may be objections to
the county being in line with
other counties iu the State, there
may be a prejudice tht the ex
liibition will nelp Davids n coun
ty more than any other, but we
cannot see any valid reason why
Marion County bo full ol natural
gifts and so repleta with mineial
wealth should hesitate to show
to the world what she has with,
in her limits.
We shall never be fouud in
the rauks of those who discour
age enterprise, nor shall we ques
tion the purposes of the J ustices
ot the Peace who hesitated to ap
propriate the peoples' money lor
the purposes of an exhibit and
we hope that the iuieiveuiug
time since their meeting iu Jan
uary and the next Court to be
holden will have afforded them a
chance to carefully consider
wnat etteet au exhibit would
have and whether ic is necessary
for the welfare ot the County to
it mi v thin to show it in its
Tirof fir liifht. and therefore we
expect that they will be iu better
condition to consider when the
matter comes again betore them

Tiie News wants an exhibit
and its columns are open for the
intelligent understanding of the
matter. If anyone objects, let
us know why. Or, if any plan is
ready, let the people kuow it.
The p'an of the American
Newspaper Directory in rega-d
to elapsing papers of le8 than
Kof) circulation per week aR
i ".TKL" seems to us a very good
I idea. The dv person it could
! injure would be th foreign wd
jvertiser, wh( mihtlose thereby,
in his h-iRto o tret papers ot over
1000 circulation, a paper of from
f00 to 900, which w)n'd ha bet
ter for Ins purposes. The scheme
cannot harm the paperfl of small
circulation at any rate, as foreign
advertiser that patronizo them
are scarcer than hen's teeth any
way, barring the advertising
'shark.'
cCTlVVO SUSPICIOUS looking characters wearing masks and carrying dark Ian-
items paused in front of DAVIDSON'S STORE one dark night last week and
began trying to fit a key to the door. While thus engaged a slip of paper
attracted the attention of oneof them and he picked it up and studied it a moment; by the light of his
lantern. Then with an exclamation of surprise, he passed it to his companion who examined it eagerly
for a timo and then threw it down,
That settles it, Bill," said he. "We won't crack this crib. WHEN A MAN SELLS AT
THOSE PRICES, IT DOES N'T PAY TO STEAL."
And abandoning their task, they disappeared in the darkness.
Here is a List of the Prices that Saved them from Becoming Thieves.

The first field of interest is a large
vineyard. As far as the eye can see

vines are twining around vertical
posts. The posts are nothing more
than short fence rails driven into the
ground. They are about eight feet
apart each way. Y hen the vine is
small and tender, it is trained to cir
cle around the post and is aided by a
string which is tied to the top and
then around the post. To look at
the vines one would think some bad
boy had been in there with his hatch
et; but, no, it is the work of the prim
er. He cuts about one-fourth of the
vines off each year keeps it trimmed
back. That makes the fruit grow

and the vine cease? its most luxuri
ant growth.
It is interesting to see how these
vines are cultivated. As in an im
mense corn field a plowman with
horse and plow e.-in be seen plowing
between the rows, lie plows witn
m a short distance say two feet, ot
the vine, first plowing ons way and j
then across, just like plowing corn
that is in hills. Not a weed nor
much grass can be seen in the field.
The vineyard is worked as if it were
cotton. The soil is a deep sandy
soil, that is, real loose and soft.
There is no- clay subsoil to hinder the
roots in their spreadiosx.
Back of Southern Pines the pesch
qrchards extend for miles. The
trees are about five feet high and
umbrella shaped. They are small,
but larsro at the top, as if the prun
ing knife had stopped the upward
crowth and caused the tree to spread.
The trees are placed about twelve
feet ap;irt in both directions and are
in rows like the crape vines, so that
they can be plowed easily. No
weeds or grass are to te seen, just a
field of glowing peach tiees loaded
in the season with peaches. The soil
is the same as that of the grape field.
The field is a solid block of treee, no
space being vacant in which a tree
should be. Sahnaguudu
