Will Tracy I ,- City Sit Me Divers and sundry people (and especially dried-up people) have on various occasions cast asper sions at Mrs. Grundy by assert ing' that she is not up-to-date, etc. We sav that Mrs. Grundy, like all other newspapers, is as good as the town and as progres sive as the town, and we point to our ad columns from local mer chants; to. prove the same but what we started out' to say is, that the following article copied from The Commonwealth, of Somerset; Ky., in our regular body type, so as to be easily read, may possiblv 1 be of interest to Tracy City. It is in a humorous vein, but phere ls nothing light in it so far as Tracy City is con cerned if this proves a "gc Millionaire Editor Frank W. Cheek, a native of Henry County, Tennessee, and who was for several years pro prietor of The Parisian, at Paris, Tennessee, one of. the best weeK lies published in that section of the state, wasin this city recent ly on business 4pr the Home& Farm ' Publishing Company, of Westfield, N. J., and while here became garrulous after the fash- ion of editors wherever I ney J j-hance to fall in company with each other,. and thus he unfolded a scheme which 'may make hfm almost rich. Frank gave up newspaper work, he says, because he found politics too warm and too disturbing to his quiet mind, which seems more than probably true, for he must have a tempera ment ill-suited to politics judg ing from the occupation engaged in prior to entering newspaper work, for he was instructor of Latin and Greek in - the High School at Morganfield, Kentucky, before he mounted the tripod to instruct the world how to vote instead of teaching children how to jabber in foreign lanzuages. So, when he gave up newspaper work he picked what he thought was a nice quiet business iu the mountains of Tennessee Tracy (3ity and dived headforemost into the drug business 12 years ago--note this Parisian (Ameri can Parisian's) shiftiness in choice of location just six miles from the noted summer resort by pike from Monteagle. This selec tion of location indicates that he hedged against too much quiet however; he located so that he could spend his summers in . the nountains, make a living, and at ths same time could easily banish loneliness by taking a spin to Monteagl,e to dance with the summer girls for be it known the said ex-editor is a bachelor. That fact is not in the least unusual, however, for Frank is not the first fellow whom 'no woman would have. The unusu- al feature, as intimated in the beginning, relates to his chemical discovery.;' v:?iV . ' He claims to have originated something which will make him a millionaire, as well as those associated wjth Jiim in a busi ness way, if he can . produce the goods. For he has perfected a cosmetic w hich wilt make any woman who is over 27 years of age, look to be 10 y6ars younger can auybody doubt the final out come? " ' , Frank sayst'iathe was spurred on to apply ne chemical know ledge by seeing the immense suc cesses made by the Paris Medi cine Company and the National Toilet Company, each of which has made more than a million dollars, and distributed the same right there in his home town -of Pans. .i ",- r But, suspicion at j once arises that it was not greed of gold which Bet Frank; to thinking; for his other discovery is a Flexible Enamel, made inVthree shades, white, flesh and brunette; which does hot deaden . the7, sense- of touch or impede musclar move- r ment--aid dos trd in off."- He evidently played no favor if ps sia hpf-.wepn the hlnhd. hrn. nattani iha Uav witu Vi, lilv H- W VVJ VI1W " lW W"' J wu:H fnirinlflinn. and was anr. ious that their face powder stay ed placed until; washed off or was he really moved to invent by greed of gold?. X ; " : If Frank can prove that he can deliver.tbe goods, Somerset can raise the money necessary to put the thing over; to exploit the fact to the ladies that they can look younger and be relieved of stopping everything to powder their noses. , Come on Frank, send a half gallon , of this wonderful stuff You have lived in Kentuck, and are of course aware that the time has come when you ; will have to put up or shut up and, if you realy have what you claim, this newspaper will donate sever al columns to the enlistment of the enterprise in Somerset,' for if your Rose bud, Complexion Company can do for Somerset what the Paris Medicine Comp any and the National Toilet Company have done for ; Paris, Tennessee; you will find .plenty of game people here to take a risk. ' Three or four million dollars would look equally as well scat tered around in Pulaski county asit looks scattered in your native county in Tennessee, set forth by, the improvements in shapof 'new homes, a hundred thousand dollar school buiidiifg donated by Mr. Grove to the city of Paris several years ago. Come on with your dope, Frank, Send us half a gallon. Your "Uncle Bill" will investi gate these claims and1 further more, a copy of The Common wealth is, being sent you by registered mail, so it H'ill be known that you got it and if you are "faking" you will be sorry that you ever set feet in Somerset. The Commonwealth Somerset, Pulaski County, Ken tucky. . ; V: ', Ed. Note Here is an instance which exhibits to the general public the Free Masoury, so to speak, which exists between newspaper men two of them meet who never saw each other before ; they, fall to discussing the trials of the country editor, how he is "pulled" for vatious and snndry free write-ups; they, even in tlieir newly formed ac quaintance, gird themselves for labor,'and begin "to builing air castles of how tb make money, and soon they are in fine spirits. Or do we have it slightly, re versed? Surely they did not have the "tine spirits" in themselves before they built the air Jcastles, But anyway, seriously, every body' in Tracy" City knows Mr. Cheek, in aS much s he has spent twenty summers on this mountain ; aud all of the .women know something of" NEV-P-N,0.
