THURSDAY, ., . . Api:!L 29, 1909. TALK TO THE RICH FELLOW. Last week we asked this question: "How long will the rich continue to rule this country, sinking the people lower and lower?" On this the South Pittsburg, Tenn., Hustler, comments as follows: "Just so low as the poor remain poor by selling their labor for nothing. A man, a firm, printers, manufactur-: ers or whatnot should take pride in their labor and demand a living price for it. The party who doesn't do this is almost as bad as an anarchist in principle and hasn't one-third as much gray matter in his cranium." The Hustler hits the nail on the head, but what's the remedy t The rich people make the price anyway, for they have the plunks to stand the loss. The man of moderate means and Lis nearest of kin, the poor man, have to follow in the footsteps of the rich nabob. He has nothing to say about what piice be shall reoeive. Look to day at the wheat market. Is it the farmer who raised the wheat who gets the increased price, and does the la borer who buys the wheat at an in creased price get an increased wage with which to purchase it'. Not so. " On the cpntrary there is a decided movement to cut the meagre wages he now receives. To get a meagre living he must sell his "labor for nothing" as the Hustler peculiarly puts it If he should strike he simply knocks him self out of getting that "nothing", which means downright starvation. It's a poor system, isn't it, that thous ands of men can live in a land of plenty, and surrounded by all sorts of conveniences, and while perfectly able and willing to work for them, be not able to secure them, while a few priV' ileged parties are surfeited with lux aries. Something wrong with the sys tem, isn't there? So don't kick at the poor but kick at the other fellow who holds the clamps. A recent copy of the Boston Herald, contains the first and exclusive an nouncement of a movement commem orating the tbree-hundreth anniversary of the Landing of the Pilgrims on the bleak shore of Plymouth Bay, Mass. , in 1620, and the founding of New Eng land, by a world's Tercentennial Ex position in that city in t920. This early announcement has been made to give notice to the world, that we, Un cle Sam's cohort of hustlers, his child ren, are going to have a big affair in Boston town on that date, and for all other nations to come and participate therein. This move on the part of the Herald will be hailed with pleasure by many an exile from the Modern Ath ens, who has longed to see again her many charms, and who, Deo volente, will assuredly not miss the Tercenten nial of 1920. The Sequachee News comments on an "unusual" name borne by a lady in a neiffnbonnz town. The name is really unusual. But the most unusual thing connected with the incident is the fact that a southern editor would or could possibly lower himself to coui meut in his paper on a laay's name in a ribald manner. Mrs. Grundy, Tracy City. Ha ! To the rescue Horatio '. The fair maid is assailed ! Dins ! Bang ! Bum ! What a "wow" we make, Biug' Bangl Burnt Don't it take the cake! And so we are guilty of ribadry, eh ! All right, but we had no idea that Mrs. Grundy would hnmp np her back over the matter. But, seriously, whenever we find an editor, southern or other wise, making a great howl over chiv alry to women, we immediately suspic ion that his wife or some of his female relatives spit and lug in the wood. With a few more sncb law-making bodies as this one, Tennessee will be on the rock to stay. Altamont, Tenn., Comet. Is that a deal better than being in the quagmire of booze We think the present legislature is credit to the state and that it tackles all sorts of legisla tion in a homey-handed sort of way that is encouraging. Holy Writ men tions a rock as a particularly good fonndation, so why should not Tennes see locate thereon? The Statesman-Democrat, of Jasper, published a very neat special edition last week of 24 pages, representing the advantages of Jasper and surrounding territory. While largely made np of matter published before in the Demo crat, it was still good reading and formed a very creditable issue. The farmer who sold his wheat last year at HOc a bushel is now buying it Lack at ft. 25. per bnshel, or nbnnt $7.50 per barrel. That's a back hand ed lick at propjrity for the farmer, fht A laboring wita who builds a home in Scouach" from Lis daily wage is imply a wonder and deserve a chro iiio.

When appetite fails, it restores it. When food is a burden, it lifts the burden. When you lose flesh, it brings the plumpness of health. When work is hard and duty is heavy, it makes life bright. It is the thin edge of the wedge; the thick end is food. But what is the use of food when you hate it and can't digest it? Scott's Emulsion of Cod Liver Oil is the food that makes you forget your stomach. Send this advertisement, together with name of paper in which it appears, your address and four ceis to cover postage, and we will (end you a "Complete Handy Atlas of the World." SCOTT & BOWNE, 409 Pearl St. New York The write-up of Sequachee in the Trade Edition of the Statesman-Democrat is thoroughly entertaining, espec ially that about "numbers of new res idences going up." where are they? Alex Lofty is the first citizen of this place to build a residence of entirely new material in years, and he built it by the hardest kind of work, a little at a time. W. S. Pryor was the next, and J. B. Jones followed, and that concludes the list of houses built in this city of absolutely new material in years. All others are old ' ones re- modled or pulled down and made over. And, by the way, Mr. Jones' residence marks the site of an $18,000 machine shop vanished from this city. It's growth to be sure, but deuced slow, but we are glad and lucky to get that much, even if it is little, for all things come slowly and "conservative ly" to Sequachee. Congressman Moon favors appropria tions for storage reservoirs on rivers in certain southern states. He is always awake to the importance of the rivers of the South and this new idea of us ing some of them as storage reservoirs is a good one that can be widely ex tended. Mrs. Grundy is respectfulyly inform ed that there is a young lady by the name of Toe atTullahama, the "light, fantastie toe, " you know. Object to Strong Medicines. Many people object to taking the strong medicines usually prescribed by physicians for rheumatism. There is no need of internal treatment in any case of muscular or chronic : rheuma tism, and more than nine out of every ten cases of the disease are of one or the other of these varieties. When there is no fever and little (if any) swelling, your may know that it is on ly necessary to apply Chamberlain's Liniment freely to get quick relief.

She is not too proud to earn her own liv ing, nor ashamed to be caught at her daily task. She smiles at you from behind the desk, counter, or printer's case. There is a sweet memory of her in everything she touches. She is like a brave mountaineer, already far np the precipice climbing, struggling, rejoicing. The sight is an inspira tion. It is an honor to know this girl and be worthy of her esteem. Lift your .hat to her, young man, as she passes by. She is a queen in the realm of womannood. ahe is a princess among the toilers. Her hands may be stained by dish-washing, sweeping, printers' ink or factory grease, but they are honest hands. They stay misfortunes from the home: they sup port the invalid loved one, maybe. They are the moving, patent shields that protect many a family from the poor house. God bless and protect the girl who works. Terrel (Tex.)

JACK DANIELS Once Proprietor of Famous Distillery, Maker of No. 7, Becomes Baptist. SHELBYVILLE, Tenn., April 27. Elder A. J. Willis, an ex-Primitive Baptist preacher of South Pittsburg, who has charge of two or three church es in this county, was here yesterday and told the Banner correspondent an interesting story of the conversion of Maj. Jack Daniel, the noted distiller and former proprietor of that famous whisky brand, "Jack Daniel, No. 7." Mr. Daniel made a profession of relig ion several days ago and was baptized by immersion in Mulberry Creek Sun day by Elder Willis. The Elder says that Maj. Daniel's conversion was one if the most earnest be has ever known. Maj. Daniel is one of the wealthiest men of Middle Tennessee and has lotig been noted for his kindness of heart and unbounded liberality. He is no longer interested in the whiskey busi ness and has, it is stated, forbidded the use of his name on whisky brands, and in the future his large capital will be differently employed. His famous distillery at Lynchburg has passed in to other hands. Ellisville. Special to the News Miss Nettie Ellis left Tuesday to visit friends and relatives at Guild. J. M. Bobo. of Pineal).
