The Eigh teenth General Assembly of the Cum berland Presbyterian Church is in ses- sion at Dickson for seven days. Be sides discussing and planning ecclesias tical affairs for the coming year, the do nomination's centenary is to bo cele brated. Delegates from sixteen States will attend. More than usual importance is at tached to tho Assembly of this year be cause of the status of the controversy . between the Cumberland Church and the Fresbyterian Church, U. S. A., rep resenting that faction of the Cumber land Church which amalgamated with the Northern Church, so-called, several years ago. Property valued at approxi mately 3,000,000 is in litigation, each church claiming the right of title. Su preme Court decisions in several States . show opposing views as to the merits of the controversy and a course of proced- : ure will probably bo determined upon in an effort to bring the entire dispute to a final adjudication. The Woman's Board of Missions will meet in conjunction with tho Assembly for three days. Dickson was selected as the meeting place this year because of the fact that the church had its inception with the gathering of four ministers of the Cum berland Presbytery which separated from the Presbyterian Church, U.S.A., early in the nineteenth century, in a log cabin near this city. Hence the. deriva tion of the name. CURE FOR INTEMPERANCE Use of Apples as Diet Will Abate Alcoholic Appetite. The forbidden fruit of the Garden of Edeu which brought sin into the world is now looked on as the means of driv ing sin out of tho world, says the May Technical World. No less an august body than the Iowa' State Horticultural Society is standing sponsor for the movement to remove tho stigma from tho apple. When Eve, sorely tempted, partook of the luscious fruit which she had been forbidden to touch, she all unwittingly cast a blight on the apple which cen OFFICERS. W. G FARRIS, President. N. W.

It has remained for an apple loving country doctor to discover that not only. can the world be fed until it has the necessary calories of energy, but that the craving for liquor conceded to be the greatest cause of misery and crime can bo eradicated from the hu man 1xdy by the apple. As if this were not miracle enough, it is contended that Gen. Grant might have won the siege of Vicksburg and the battle of Appo mattox by munching on a Ben Davis, a Spitzenburz or a Jonathan, just as well as by puffing on a fat black cigar. The use of apples as an article of diet will very much diminish, decrease and ultimately abate the appetite for alcoholic stimulants," declares Dr. Sam uel Bailey, of Mt. Ayr., Iowa. That this is a fact could be proven in many instances if a little care, caution and vigilance were taken to thoroughly in vestigate conditions. As a rule the habitual user of alcoholic stimulants is rarely a lover or consumer of apples. There seems to be a peculiar combina tion in apples, in the acid in them or in the peculiar chemical combination of tho apple that allays the irritation, or so-called appetite, produced by the use of liquor. I am also of the opinion that the keen appetite for tobacco is limited by the use of apples. I am thoroughly convinced that any man who is a lover of whisky and is in a condition when he thinks he must have a drink, if he will eat an apple before he takes the drink, will find that his appetite for the drink has been materially lessened, Of not entirely abated, for the time.

S. forwarded to the Annual Track Meet held last Friday at Dyersburg met with success in every particular. Prep. schools were represented from all parts of the State, and all morning, up to the time of tho games, the thoroughfares of the town flared and fluttered with colors. The Jay was an ideal one for such a manifestation and the surrounding scen ery wore a look of brightness. Virtually the events of the day began at ten o'clock in the moming when the announcement was made that the con course assemble themselves in the High School, one of the handsomest buildings in this section. There they were usher ed into a stage-fitted chapel and enter tained for an hour or more at the Fifth Annual Oratorical Contest of tho Dyers burg High School, giveu under the di rection of the U. D. C.'s. The program was as follows: n vocation . Trio Fcstmarch .G3sten Misses Hurt, Chamblin, Smith. Oration The Battle of Gettsyburg.. Leon Jerre Cooper Oration Memories of the Civil War. George Crofford Solo A Song of Waiting ... Miss Aileen Howell Oration Our Glorious Southland DeWitt Holland Oration Southern Heroes ...Crofford Prichard Oration The Men of the Confeder ate Eanks Algernon Killough Piano Solo Palms J. Leybac Solo Kashmiri Song ..' . . Miss Kate Coover Each oration was full of interest and admirable figures. Cooper led off with a masterly composition on the Battle of Gettysburg a complete enumeration of the maneuver which paved the way for this battle, and spoke with a deep in tensity which brought smoke, shrieking shells, the " groans of the dying and wounded and the thunder of skirmish ing hosts to the mind of his audience. Crofford's dramatic delivery of Memo ries was almost faultless. With a. rich and profuse variety of vocal feats the bend, the upper slide, the glide in his voice with hardly a flaw he told of the many heroes who had fought and bled with Lee, Jackson and Davis. His to- nations were full of appeal and pathos. Holland treated tin Glorious Southland thoroughly and in an interesting man ner. Frichard thundered forth his ideas in a manner difficult to emulate; and Mr. Killough 's delivery was full of in tcrest. The musical part of tho contest was very entertaining. The medal was won by Mr. Leon Jerre Cooper. After this contest a dinner was given to the visitors by the Daughters of the Confederacy which was greatly enjoyed by everyone. At two o'clock the crowd collected for the games. The gatekeepers roaped an abundant harvest, the proceeds of which went towards the building of a gymna sium. Jirst to be puiieu on was-a 10 yard dash, the prize a gold medal. The prize was sought by representatives from Dyersburg, Union City, Covington and Fulton Smith, TeaguO, Calhoun and McLellan. At the 'pistol shot Tcague got a cumbersome start, but, flashing along at a most astonishing rate of speed, instigated by the rousing 'rahs of his U. C. T. S. constituents, succeed ed in outstripping Calhoun and winning first place. The next Marathon, a 220 yard dash, was easy for him. On the 1 Tl T sT EXCHANGE , p, start he spurted over three feet ahead all the other runners and on the home stretch came in fully half & rod in the lead. The same contestants for the 75 yard dash prize entered this race. Wil son, however, ran as the second U. C. T. S. man. Teaguo did not enter the relay race of 440 yards, but the U.C.T. S. was represented here by Key, Wilson and Thomas. This was won by Smith, of Dyersburg High School. The classy pole-vaulting came next, contestants be ing Dyersburg and Covington. The first vault was five feet, three inches; tho second, five feet, eight inches, and the third, six feet, five inches. This prize was won by Smith, of Dyersburg. Then Smith broke his previous vaulting record by jumping seven feet and eleven inches. - Peters, a retired champion, vaulted for the entertainment of the crowd, leaping eight feet six inches. Tho broad jump was won by Fulton, represented by McLellan, who jumped twenty feet and three inches. -Calhoun, of Covington, came next, jumping eigh teen feet and seven inches. Fields and Sinclair jumped for Dyersburg, their distances being respectively sixteen feet seven inches and seventeen feet six inches. The high jump was won by Smith over McLellan and Calhoun, who jump ed five feet and seven inches. McLel lan came second, springing five feet three inches. After these contests the game between Fulton and Dyersburg came off. A good even gamo of ball was played by the home team. When the game was still young Fulton's twirler held them off easily, but eventually they began to slam the pill with vehemence and fre quency. Ine score was 8-2 witn Dyers burg. Eice and Shepard played star ball for Fulton. A basket-ball game ended the contests of the evening; and ere long, after the tumult, the shouting, the captains and the kings had departed and died, the visitors flocked toward their natal shores. : Those who went from the Training School to Dyersburg were Seid Waddell, Harvey Teaguo, Cecil Thomas, Grover Wilson, Frank Key, Pratt Waddell, Bob Taylor and Edwards Parks. Training of Singers. As some of us know, Adelina Tatti sang as a child. Her voice required little or no training. Its beauty and placement were God-given. All Pattti's wise guardians did was to protect her against exposure of all kinds. Tatti made her operatic debut at an age when it would be a crime to begin the vocal training of the average girl. Nellie Melba is another whose gold en throat was perfected by nature. When Melba left her Australian home for Paris, where she acquired some "frills," her voice was perfect, so no one, unless it be the unknown teacher in far-away. Melbourne, can honestly claim any credit for Melba 's "vocal method." Mme. Tetrazzini, who came rather late into her own, was always a natural singer. It is reported that she studied tone production but five months. But Tetrazzini lived in the home of hcr'sis- ter, Mm. Campanini, who is a singer, and hearing this sister practice for years supplied the clever listener with ideas which enabled her to curtail her own studies by several years. Harper's Ba zar.

By a sudden welding of supposedly ir reconcilable factions, the Senate, by a vote of 56 to 10, adopted a compromise amendment to the railroad bill for tho regulation of relative charges for long and short hauls. The agreement was reached chiefly for tho reason that each faction apparently thought it was get ting the better of a shrewdly driven bar gain. The Dixon amendment, with a proviso taken from the amendment of Senator Taynter, of Kentucky, was passed. The Grand International Brotherhood of Locomotive Engineers, in session at Detroit, unanimously adopted a resolu tion favoring ah increase of the income of tho railroad companies by "any legi timate means without the sacrifice of safety, promptness or good service, or to the detriment of either employes or the public." At the meeting of tho General Con ference of the M. E. Church, South, a report was mado asking tho appoint ment of a committee to agitate for uni form divorce laws. The removal of the Church Board of Extension from Louis ville to Dallas, Tex., was urged by a committee, but action was deferred. Arguments on demurrers to the in dictment against the National Packing Company and its ten subsidiary com panies wore set for Friday in Chicago, but upon request of counsel for the de fendants Judge Landis in tho United States District Court granted a postpone ment until Wednesday. The Rules Committee of the House tried ineffectually to agree upon a date for the consideration of the Scott bill to prohibit transactions in futures on cotton exchanges. It was decided to defer action on a rule providing for this consideration for about two weeks. Mr. Roosevelt authorized a denial of the newspaper stories that he had writ ten letters expressing his attitude toward the administration of President Taft and "1 TTTl T htone T PvlANWITH MONEY Iff I&tO favoring a certain candidate for Gover nor of New York State.

No matter how high your am bition may transcend its duties, no mat ter how far your talents or your influ ence may reach beyond its doors, before everything else, build up a true home! Be not its slave; be its master! , Let it not bo enough that it is swept and gar nished; that its silver is brilliant; that its food is delicious, but feed tho love in it, feed tho truth in it, feed thought and aspiration, feed all charity and gentle ness in it. Then from its walls shall come forth the true woman and the true man who shall together rulo and bless the land. Is this an outright picture? We think not. What honor can bo greater than to found such a home. What dignity higher than to remain its undisputed and honored mistress. What is the ability to speak from a public platform to large audiences, or the wisdom that may command a seat on tho bench, compared to that which can insure and preside over a true homo that husband and children "rise and call her blessed?" To bo the guiding star, tho ruling spirit, in such a posi tion, is higher honor than to rulo an empire. Exchange. DIRECTORS. S. M. STONE. S. F. HOWARD. H. P. MOSS. W. L WHITE. W. C. FARRIS. N. W.
