GROWING STATESMAN. "Savoyard" Places Congressman Gar rett's Name on the Honor Boll. Among the very promising younger members of the House is Finis J. Gar rett, of Tennessee. Mr, Blaine remarks in his book that a man rarely makes his mark in either House of our Con gress unless he attained his seat therein ere he bad reached forty, and there are just about enough exceptions to vindi cate the rule. Thaddeus Stevens was a remarkable exception, being 58 when he first went in the House at Washington. John G. Carlisle was 42 in 1877, when he first came to Congress., James B. Bi'ck was 45, William C. P. Breckin ridge 48, and numerous other notably triumphant careers in Congress might be cited as exceptions to the rule laid down by Mr. Blaine. Finis Garrett is a descendant of the second generation of a South Carolinian who settled in West Tennessee in 1880, locating in Weakly County. The father of the young Congressman, yet living, is a farmer, and I opine a Cum berland Presbyterian in religious faith, and I jump to that conclusion because I never knew a christened "Finis" whose father did not belong .to that sect. There was a noted minister of that name, who was active in the won derful revival of 1803 in Middle Tennessee, and he was one of the Cumberland Presby- founders of the terian Church. Mr. Garrett was born in 1875 and educated in the common schools and at McKenzie College, graduating in 1807. He then taught school and studied law under the instruction and in the office of Charles M. Ewing and came to the bar in 1809. He practiced bis profes sion diligently and with success until 1904, when he was nominated for Con gress by the Democracy of the Ninth Tennessee District. It was a remark able tribute to the young man, then under thirty, for he beat Eice A. Tierce in a blanket primary 5,300 votes in a total of 19,000. Rice Pierce was not only veteran politician, but he had served fourteen years in Congress where he became a conspicuous figure and trusted leader. But where the young man discovers more than ordi nary capicity he always has the advan tage over the older competitor. .The Benjamin of the family is ever the favorite. I Young Garret took his seat in the House upon the assembling of the Fifty-ninth Congress in 1005 and lias been twice -re-elected, lie is a man of pleasant - manners and engaging ad dress, with eloquence of speech' far above the average Congressman. He has made several speeches in which he displays fine forensic abilities, and they evidenced an industry and talent for research that would be the making of a far less bountifully gifted man. His speeches on the tariff were ex ceptionally strong, and he held his own with veterans in the running colloquies that are the real, test of the parlia mentary debate. With a strong mind, a capacity for laborious and long con tinued study, engaging manners, an unfailing courtesy a ready and fluent speech, attended with elegant phrase ology and eloquent delivery, this man will be a familiar personality in every political circle before the world is many years older, or I am more mistaken than I generally am.

Some of our piano contest girls have been off visiting this week, yet there has been unusual interest in the races for the two fine pianos we are going to give away in the near future. Hie fact is tiie girls friends nave been especially active during the past few days and many have been dropping into the office or mailing their sub scriptions to us and voting for their favorites. This is gratifying both to The Commercial and to the young ladies however the young ladies should get out and hustle, if they want to win one of these fine pianos or any of the other valuable prizes we are giving away from week to week. Your friends will not do it all. If they find you are not work ing they are liable to give their votes to others. Special Prize July 17. lo the young lady securing the most subscription votes from July 3 to Satur day, July 17, at 0 o'clock p. m. we will give a beautiful gold locket and chain 1 Ins is worth a little effort on the part of any girl and is one of the most valu able special prizes to be awarded in the contest. The winner of the special silver set prize is debarred from winning this locket and chain, but her votes count all the same on the piano. In fact all votes count all the time on the pianos. During this period ending July 17 we will give 5000 extra free votes with every $10 turned in at one time on new sub scribers or 4000 for every $10 turned in on old, or renewals. This -will give every girl a good chance to pile up a lot of votes in a short time. At noon Wednesday, June 30, we counted the votes as made up from cash receipts and find many of the girls very close together. This is somewhat of a surprise and shows that the chances of winning prizes is practically equal. This count does not include any of the free ballots from the ballot box. These however would not change results very much: UNION CITY GIRLS.

We hope all the contest girls will send us their pho tographs at once and call at "this office for lists of our subscribers' names and circular letters to be used in sending to friend. We will help each and every girl we can, but we will treat all alike and guarantee that every phase of the contest will be strictly on the square. The ones securing the most votes will receive the pianos and special prizes. One of the pianos was shipped from the factory June 25 and will probably be here ere this paper is mailed and all are wanted to call and see it. It is one of the very best $400 pianos on the market with a ten year guarantee and bears the-closest investigation. A Contented Woman is always found in the same house with Ballard's Snow Liniment.

Ladies who have become in tensely weary of the latest Paris fashion absurditiifs in the way of hats s li c h as the ubiquitous peach basket shape which is really be coming to nobody, will welcome with a sigh of relief the very latest millinery fad in the all black hat. which it has been found, harmonizes beautifully with the fashionable shades for frocks, particularly the popular rose colored gowns. KRONZE SUITERS FASHIONABLE. Bronze shoes, slippers and ties are the newest thing in foot-wear invented by fashion, if that can be called new which is, after all, but a revival of an old style. The bronze kid appears in many forms, pumps with jaunty rib bon bows, strap slippers, high button boots and low cut ties. This new kind of footwear can be used for many pur poses, but is intended pri marly for dressy wear. COLOR DE HOSE. Rose color is having a tremendous popularity this summer appearing as it does, not only in dresses, coats and wraps, but also in millinery, parasols, veils, purses and other accessories. In The above design is by the McCall Com pany, Tew York. Patterns may be ob tained at any McCall Agency. The Union City Ice & Coal Co. can quote you summer prices on coal.

Kose pink straw is trimmed with flowers and ribbon of exactly the same shade, and both white and black straws are also trimmed with this popular color. Elaborate displays of leather goods in the new pastel shades have lately at tracted especial attention in the Xew York shops and here too rose color lias taken precedence. NEW IDEAS IN FROCKS. All the latest models in pongee or linen gowns show effective variations of the new waist line. This is seen not only in princess dresses, but also in coat suits, the skirts of the latter being cut with a deep hip yoke below; which material is box-pleated or set on In cir- j cular style. The newest princess frocks have a fitted cuirass effect, extending well below the hips and below this are box-pleats or a gathered flounce effect. THE INDISPENSABLE liRASSIERE. The brassiere is now as indispensable as her corset to every woman who pays any attention to the fit of her gowns. A properly made brassiere holds and moulds the figure above the corset, bearing all the strain which otherwise stretches and wears the dress waist, and also preventing the ugly line at the top of the corset which often shows so dis tressingly across the back of the bodice. A new style brassiere that closes in front has three small cross bones at the side of the bust which prevent the fig ure from spreading, and secure the fashionable trJmness of line. . In the. back closing surphV-c brassiere, there is a new model, made with a re-i'iforcing shield under the arm, which helps both the shape and wear of the garmeiit. Both are made by the Debervoiso Co., and can be found at most corset de partments in the best stores. LOVELY SUMMER FROCKS. A very pretty, but by no means ex pensive summer frock, is made of rose colored linen or one of the heavy cot ton fabrics closely imitating linen; It is cut with the front panel extending down to the side way below the hips and lengthened by a a deep side pleating of the material that extends from each side of the panel around to the back. The neck is cut out in a small square to display a laco guimpe. A touch of braiding in pink soutache outlines the square neck, trims the sleeves above long lace cuffs, and heads the pleated flounce effect. VARIETY OF STYLES. An immense variety of materials are used for summer frocks. Pongee is enormously popular, so also is linen, batiste, Marquisette, cotton voile, cham bray and that extremely useful fabric, foulard. The revival of foulard comes as a boon to womankind. It is used for everything from plain morning frocks to elaborate afternoon gowns and in light shades even for dancing dresses.

"I have exam ined the temperance laws sufficiently to know that liquor, wines, ales and beers cannot be sold in Tennessee after July 1, either at wholesale or retail in origi nal packages or by the drink." This statement was made by General Jeff McCarn, district attorney general of Davidson county to-day. "Questions about the temperance leg islation have been asked me a number of times," said general . McCarn. "I. have been asked if liquors can legally be sold in original packages after July 1. I have been asked if the four-mile " law applied to retailers Or whether it in cludes wholesalers as well as retailers. I have made examination, sufficient to satisfy me that neither wholesaleing nor retailing can be done in Tennessee after midnight of Wednesday, next." Speaking with reference to the course his office would pursue in the matter General McCarn asserted that he and his assistants would vigorously enforce the prohibition laws and prosecute per sons violating them. General McCarn, it wll be remember ed, was the leading council for the State in the recent trial of Col. Duncan B. Cooper and his son, Robin, for the mur der of Senator E. WT. Carmack.
