GRUNDY A character In Morton's Comedy, "Speed the Plough," the wife of a lucky farmer, envied by Dame Ashfield, a neigh bor, who constantly exclaims, "What will Mrs. Grundy say," hence, society in general regarded as a censor of morals. Standard Dictionary, Vol. XVIH. TRACY CITY, TENN., THURSDAY, MARCH 31, 1904. A- U lU&r"n.. n , !l rrom uup EDITOR'S TABLE. A) JOHN MILLER McKEE, in his reminiscences of Gov. Sevier, J arraigns the State of Tennessee for its niggardness in not pro viding a mansion for its Governor that he may live in a manner commensurate with the dignity of his office, in which we fully and heartily agree with him and endorse what he says, which is as fol lows : "It is singular that during the existence of Tennessee for more than a hundred years now it has never provided a mansion for its Governor, or paid him a salary that would enable him to live in a rented house in Nashville and entertain in a style becoming his position as Governor of one of the prominent states of the Union. A man competent to discharge the duties of the office of Governor is capable of earning more money than the state pays him and he ought not to be expected to discharge those duties simply for the ruther empty honor the office confers. A state as wealthy as Ten nessee ought to be able to pay its Governor a salary that would en able him to live and entertain in a style creditable to himself and the people over whom he presides. McMinnville New Era. It alTords us pleasure to give space to the foregoing from the Mc Minnville New Era, because the sentiment is a good one, because we have high regard for the opinion of the New Era, and because the editor of Mrs. Grundy has the good fortune to know intimately and admire Mr. John Miller McKee. He is one of the oldest and most elegant of old time Tennessee newspaper men, and a gentle man of the old school. Editor. 1 Pelham Let Urt. Grundy gay: The cold wave struck here Sat urday, and the result perhaps killed the peaches. Rev. P. Freeman preached for us Sunday. Esq. Odom and Constable Brashear went to Altamont Mon day to attend Circuit Court. A literary society was organ at the college Friday night, Rev. W. R. Wilson was elected prosi dent, Frof. R. II. White Vice President and Miss Annie Klein wachter Secretary and Treasurer. Capt. A. II. Sanders will move here soon ; he will occupy the house vacated by W. R. Ooley. J. Q. Brashear has moved to the Phinis Burnett house. Mr. and Mrs. J. W. Summers are in Birmingham Ala. visiting their daughter Mrs. Echols. Click. V7 E are of opinion that Rev. E. E. Folk made a serious mistake when he rushed into print to protest against the nomination of Jesse M. Littleton for Governor by the republicans. Doubtless Mr. Folk and his anti-saloon league have done a good work, and we are in sympathy with that work, but claming as they do to be non partisan, it occurs to us as bad taste to attempt to dictate to either nf t.lio Tinlitical rarties in the nomination of candidates. If Rev. Folk and his friends do not like the candidates put forward by either the democrats or the republicans, they have a perfect right to express their disapproval during the campaign and at the polls, but this anti-convention protest from the head of a non-partisan league, who is alleged to be personally a rather strenuous demo crat, smacks of olRciousness, and will not, be likely to influence the republicans in the selection of their candidate. OOLITENESS is a virtue which it must be admitted is less . general than it once was, and more's the pity. And by polite ness we do not mean the gushing or "slop-over" sort, but rather a free exercise of that consideration for others which is an innate constituent in the make-up of a gentleman. It is not only right "and an element of gentility to be polite, but it pays. No employer can afford to advance to places of trust or responsibility a young man who will not treat with respect those with whom he comes in contact, and it is a rare thing that persons without this quality suc "ceed in business for themselves. Be polite and respectful to your fellows. It is an evidence of good breeding and you owe it to society and to yourself. A man ui in Indianapolis, Indiana, has gone Buffalo Bill one better. He has sued for divorce from a wife to whom he was married in 18(13, and who has borne him nine children. It is to be hoped that there is not a court in this land which will lend itself to the separation of this couple merely upon a plea of incompatibility of temper, or upon the claim, which the husband in this case has the temerity to put forward, that the wife treats him cruelly. Our judicial bump leads us to the conclusion that forty years and nine children ought to raise a presumption of compatibiliiy which it would require worlds of proof to overcome. Ben Hill, of Tarlton, was seen on our streets Sunday. James Northcut, of Altamont, was mixing with friends here Sunday. v Sunday School at Grace Chapel every Sunday at 9.30, a. m. Everybody is invited to attend. Dew Drop. Viola. IT is to be regretted that Chattanooga is not enforcing her ten o'clock closing law against the bars so rigidly as she once did. In the first place it is a good law, and its' enforcement obviates many of the evil effects of the open saloon. In. the next place, it is a bad thing to become lax about, the enforcement of any law. Failure to enforce laws begets contempt for law, and contempt for law begets anarchy, 'p II E Nashville American says : "What has become of that Oolum- bian army that was to come across the mountains and subjugate Panama?'' Brother, that remark is not conspicuously magnanimous, under all the circumstances. Montcaglc.

Woodle's family have them. The school that was taught by Mr. Walter Smith has been sus pended on account of measles. Mr. Smith taught a good school and it. is thought he will get the Public School here. T. W. Pirtle tells me he will sow down his farm on Collins River to grass, He believes it is the thing for farmers to do, and especially himself. Mr. Pirtle has some considerable experi ence in "raising ' nav ot late ami his advice is no doubt timely. Rattlkr. Gruetti1 T F Mr. W. J. Bryan is "cheek by jowl" with W. R. Hearst, as recent reports of his actions would indicate, Mr. Bryan is far the type of man that we nave always neen wont, w oe- from be in j! lieve him. T would seem that Southern republicans must needs keep up pome sort of row among themselves to ie regular, ine uuxw-ton-Sanford scrap for the gubernatorial nomination is the very latest, edition of that time-worn continued story. M n BRYAN says that Mr. Hearst is one of the men to le con- ;,i0rU.l hv the democratic convention. Therefore Mr. Hearst will be considered. It appears that the Chicago conference is bear in" fruit earlier than might have been expected. tt ; now evident that the "black" republican and the "yellow' democrat will each be in his element at the respective national conventions. . .. T II E fruit in this section had a mighty close call Saturday and x Sunday night, but we hope it survived. ILLIE HEARST and Teddy Rex would make a warm team en? Oh, never mind the country.

Dvkes visited Mrs. Tom Cagle Sunday afternoon. Vance Brown went to see his best girl Sunday. He was all smiles when he started for home. We wonder why! Jo ilrt, Grundy: When you're in doubt as to the right course to take consult, your conscience, not consequences. Do right and never mind how things are iroiny; to turn out. One who steers his course so as to avoid everything unpleasant makes a zigzag course, and may miss the harbor at last. Follow conscience and leave consequences to God. Never make a promise with a loop hole in it, so that you can slip out of it if you don't And it convenient to keep it. One who tries to find a way of inter preting a pledge he has made so far as the letter goes but break it in spirit, is as little to be trusted as if he hail turned his back upon his promise without conipunc tion. Mrs. J. Wichser, of Nashville, after spending last week with her mother and sister here, returned to her home again Monday. E.

Uncle Tom's Cliat Well, your Uncle Torn was very mttch amused" at. d little boy's letter from Nelson, Ark. to a kid In speaking of the girls of that town he said they wen such gos sipers that they actually caused the water of the creek to run up stream for a period of fifty sec onds. Surely these girls must be experts at the business. Well, I have always known that there was a right smart of competition between the hoys and girls but I didn't know that it had changed the current of the creeks. Now I am going to invite this boy to come to Tracy City and mingle with our girls for I don't believe ho will find a gossipcr among them. Yes, I want him to get acquaitned with girls that can be seen without being heard so much. Our girls have grand ideals and they are not gossipers. Yes, I am going to write and tell him that I'll find a girl that will, by her sweet lady-like conversa tional tact, make him ashamed of himself. Now girls, I am very proud you have never been ac cused of gossiping and I hope you will never be guilty of such unlady-like conduct. I know sometimes the girls get hard on the boys but it seems the boys have unmercifully scored the girls this time. Now, don't talk, gossip or tattle about yonr neigh bor or the boys of your town.
