A teacher asked her class to draw a picture of that which they wished to bo when they grew up, and all went dili gently to work except one little girl, who only chewed her pencil. . "Don't you know what you want to be when you grow up, Anna?" asked the teacher. "Yes, I know,' 'replied the little girl, "but I don't know how to draw it. I want to be married." William C.

Garrett is at last feeling com pensated for an important object of in terest to the whole of West Tennessee for which he has been working in and out of season since he came to Con gress. It is a survey by the Government of the swamp lands of West Tennessee, embracing the Reelfoot Lake region, which is to be the subject of a confer ence at Memphis on Monday between Director George O. Smith and his as sistant, Van H. Manning, of the geo logical survey, and Chancellor John S. Cooper, of Trenton. A topographical and drainage survey is contemplated in case the present plans are carried out. Congressman Garrett has assurance of the co-opera tion of the United States Geological Sur vey, especially with reference to drain age if the State will lend its hand, as Arkansas, Louisiana and Missouri have done. It is estimated that more than a million acres of West Tennessee lands are redeemable by drainage, with refer ence to which the surveys are to be made. The conference will bo had with Chancellor Cooper because of the fact that he has given the drainage question years of study and is exceptionally well informed as to conditions and necessi ties. K. H. V ATKINS. HERSCHEL HOGG AT LARGE. Negro Prisoners Give Their Story of Plan. Dresden, Tenn., March 8. The self- confessed Nightrider is either a genius at planning jail deliveries or several of the negroes in jail here are equally in genious at manufacturing explanations of the attempted escape Saturday night. For some time Hogg has shown con siderable anxiety as to how matters stood in Obion. His father and mother live there, and he wanted to go back to his relatives and friends. Hurley Mosely, the negro who played a star role Satur day night, was placed in jail two weeks ago for stealing chickens. Geo. Stark, a negro charged with mur der, admitted to-day partial implication in the plan to effect a jail delivery. When the razor with which Mosely later stabbed Sheriff Brasfield was missed, it was thought to be in possession of Stark, but he denied having it. It was afterwards ascertained that Herschel Hogg cautioned Stark to ri5t give up the razor; that "there is going to be hell raised to-night, and the razor will be needed." Sheriff Brasfield 's injury gives prom ise of speedy recovery, but the negro's wounded hand is serious, some time having elapsed loefore he would allow it to be treated.

President Taft issued the following call for a spe cial session of the Sixty-first Congress to convene March 15: - "By the President of the United States of America: A proclamation. 'Whereas, Public interests require that the Congress of the United States should bo convened in extra session at 12 o'clock noon on the 15th day of March, i909, to receive such communi cation as may be made by the Executive: "Now, therefore, I, WTilliam Howard Taft, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim and de clare that an extraordinary occasion re quires the Congress of the United States to convene in extra session at the Capi tol in the .city of Washington on the 15th day of March, 1909, at 12 o'clock noon, of which all persons who shall at that time be entitled to act as mem bers thereof are hereby required to take notice. - "Given under my hand and the seal of the United States of America the 6th day of March, in the year of Our Lord one thousand nine hundred and nine, and of the independence of the United States the one hundred and thirty-third. "Wm. H. Taft. "By the President. "P,.C. Knox, Secretary of State." f WP1TTO HATrS The new tariff has been tentatively completed by Republican members of the House Ways and Means Committee and the tariff framers are now devoting their attention to discussing proposed provisions for additional revenue. United States District Attorney Keal- ing at Indianapolis has resigned rather than participate in the efforts of the Department of Justice to bring Delavan Smith and Joseph Pulitzer to Washing ton to stand trial in connection with pub lications concerning the Panama canal. Former President Roosevelt has an nounced that ho will sail March 23 from New York for Africa. He spent his first day as a private "citizen quietly at his home at Oyster Bay and took a long walk in the woods. Mr. Roosevelt said he had received hundreds of letters and telegrams and regretted that he would be unable to answer them. Mrs. Taft has begun making changes at the White House. The steward has been succeeded by a woman housekeep er and the officer in uniform at the door has been replaced by a liveried footman. Mr. Taft's long public career has given Mrs. Taft ample experience . to qualify her for her management of the social life of the executive mansion. Many Senators are considering the advisability of undertaking at the special session legislation other than framing a tariff bill. It is pointed out that there will be nothing for the Senate to do un til the House bill is sent over and the postal savings bank bill, the census bill and other measures may be taken up. When Congress adjourned last week optimism regarding tariff revision was quite generally expressed in the predic tion that a special tariff session called for March 15 would be finished by June 1. Nevertheless, veterans of tariff cam paigns realize that there is much to be said on the subject of hides and wool and beet sugar, to say nothing of lum ber and steel. The House Committee on Ways and Means has in hand the tentative" revision measure which will be presented to the House, but the in-. terim between the Congresses will be occupied nevertheless by active cam-j paigns on the part of the many interests involved. H. W. Sears "The Taffy Man." Happy is the man who finds his mis- j sion in the world. Dr. H.' W. Sears found his when he began by his lec tures to drive out the blues and rout the demons of grumbling with his scourge of satire, wit and humor. Like the poet, the lecturer is born, not made. Such is the inimitable Dr. Sears, with his word pictures, sound logic, true philosophy and gospel ethics, seasoned i with good spirits, pathos and soul-stirring eloquence. He is Sam Jones and Dr. Willeta in one, for he has the pun gent sarcasm and brilliant gift of the one and the pathetic and inspiring pow er of the other. Dr. Sears is unique and without a peer to entertain and ed ify an audience on any occasion. He is one of the greatest entertainers and best drawing cards on the lecture plat" orm to-day. Every lecture course is richer when he is in it, and every Chau tauqua program is sadly defective when hejs left out. You have not heard the best until you hear him. He is always at his best.
