Moore of Wbltwell, as a candidate for joint representative or floater from this, the 13th noterial district of Tennessee, subject to the will of the voters of Franklin and Marion counties. No signatures .to communications from "Blackeyed Susan," of Whitwell, and "Blaekeved Boy," of Happy Hol low, render them useless for publica tion in these columns. You can't give yourself a bigger black-eye as re gards publication of communications in our estimation than by omitting to append signature. Our own protection demands that we have real name of writer It is only when a good citizen dies or does the next thing to it, leaves a town, that his worth is really discov ered. It sometimes takes a long time to find merit, but it is rough on the one who deserves it to have it accorded to him long after all possible utility from the reward may have pass id. We wish the parties who own the goats that congregate at the Town Hall and other public places of the town during the night, would shut them up on their own premises. Take the stink to your own doorsteps, please, where you can enjoy it, for others don't. Coalmont. Special to the News. J. D. McGovern spent Sunday at Tracy.

With the close of September the planting of many deciduous trees may ha nriweedod with, as the stripping of the leaves, which would then be nec essary, would not greatly harm the trees, certainly not to an extent that would be worth considering. Leaves have pretty well performed their duty by that time, and but little would be gained by letting them remain longer on the trees, not enough to set against the gain of early planting. Oak trees and other trees for the matter of that, do very well when set out early in autumn and well planted, better even when set in spring, in many cases. To the usuall advice as to good planting there are two other points to lie well considered. The first is that the trees must be closely prun ed ; and it must be understood that in the case of oaks this means pruning them almost to bare poles. It will not do at all to set them out with a lot of side branches to them. There are oth er trees that may be pruned unneces sarily close, but the oak must be cut in close. The younger the tree the less is this rule necessary, but with oak trees of a caliper of from two tothree inch es, the side branches must be cut to within six inches of the main stem. But little of the leader need be cut back, perhaps none. This retains the height of the trees, and very soon new shoots will form, which will push with vigor; and in two or three years later there will be a tree of far more satis factory appearance than there would have been if the close pruning had not been done. There is another and a most impor tant matter to be attended to in the planting of oaks in autumn. This is to so cover the ground about them that no frost will get to the roots. Where soil, sand, ashes, or the like, is avail able, a heap of any of these piled around a tree is sufficient, and is one of the best of ways of preventing the entry of frost Forest leaves will answer, but soil is better as, in addition to keeping out frost it prevents the tree swaying about in winds, greatly to its advantgage. This covering need not be applied until the advent of frost. Chattanooga News.

Well, before 1 close will say to Mr. Dofetchit, in regard to those questions he asked me sometime ago, that the reason whv some folks can do more than other folks is because some folks study so hard to learn foolishness that they never take time to learn anything else. They are always running around gathering np sonte great big yarn to write about, thinking that it will make some one laugh and there are ohers that will say, "Hurrah for that," and say to some friend, "Don't you like to be with that person.? I know he tells a heap of"lies and does many things that are not right, but we must have our fun. " Some folks think they can't have any fun if they don't tell some great big lie some way. Let me say to you I never could, in all my life, see anything funny in lies, That may be fun to some folks but the time is - coining when they will not laugh over such things. It was told to one of our Baptist preachers some time ago that a certain one had said that he just baa sense enough to preach the truth, and some how it seems tome that there are some folks that just have sense enough to make sport over the Bible and make fun of some poor one that is trying to live for the Master and if they see any one reioicing with the Lord they will say, "Don't that look funny?" There were- just such people attended the protracted meeting that was carried on at Union Chapel a few days ago, Ask Miss Nellie Harris if she is still keeping her dog with her to run away the varments from her school. The mountain people have to bear a terrible name sometimes that is given them by some highly educated person, I bad much rather have the spirit of the Lord in my heart and have no ed ucation than to have education and not the Bpirit. Education only carries the person to the end of life in this world, while the spirit of the Lord and Saviour, Jesus Christ, will carry him unto glory, where there is no fun makers and no liars.

A helpful life is a happy, useful life, while a sel fish existence, even though it be sur rounded with luxuries, has nothing to beautify or elevate it. The reason why some of ns do much good is because we do not understand our limitations which we can make broad only for the trying. We set too small a value on little things, not knowing that they make up our lives and influence them for better or worse. Learning to do well is like learning to swim. You wade into the water, but not far, for fear you will drown. You try again, and do a little better. You swallow a good deal of water, but yon keep on splashing .nd finally can swim.. So you must keep on doing well until you learn how. . A habit is something which we have. That is what the word means. It often be- comes something which has us. A child in the midst or a crowd is conscious of nothing but its immediate surroundings. Crushed and stifled. it can see and feel only the Objects act ually touching it. But let the father take it up in his arms and hold it a loft; what a difference the elevation will make ! So, we, too, are in a crowd in the dark, finding often no meaning in what is stirring around us; but should uod deign to raise us to His point of view, what a change would come over us. The every day cares and duties which men call drudgery are the weights and counterpoise of the clock of time, giving its pendulum a true vibration and its hands a regular mo tion. notwithstanding the strike is called off.
