Henderson, of Kenton, Tenn., who has had charge of the live stock ex hibits at the recent Tri-State Fairs, who . has been connected with the Tennessee State Fair for years, who has attended all the principal fairs in the Central West for years and who is one of the leading Berkshire hog breeders of the country, is in the city. , Mr. Henderson stated that Memphis would this fall have at the Tri-State Fair the finest exhibit of classy live stock ever shown in this section of the country. "Lap! year," he continued, w we suf fered 'both here and at Nashville from the fact that the dates foe the Indiana and Kentucky fairs conflicted. The re sult of this was that the exhibitors would not make the long jump from Indiana down to Nashville. But this year there is no conflict anywhere and the owners of fine stock will have easy jumps from Indiana to Kentucky, thonce to Nash ville and Memphis and from here to the greatest of all fairs Springfield, III. "Having a chance to come here they are certain to do so, because ail agreed last year that they had the best market in Memphis that they had anywhere on the circuit. Every matt who had any fine stock, hogs, sheep or horses here for sale sold them, and could have sold twico as much more if ho had had it here. "They all agree, also, that the Tri State Fair has the finest cattle pens south of Columbus, 0." Commercial Appeal.

SPRAOillN Vnlon City. Tenn. Bears Able Testimony as to What He Saw Abroad. In Memphis Mr. Bryan spoke at the Court Avenue Fresbyterian Church on the subject of missions. His address was a testimonial as to wuat ne iiad seen on his trip to the Orient and was replete with personal experiences. He described with his peculiarly immacu late style and vivid charm the work of the foreign missionaries and the in delible impress they leave on the indi viduals and communities with which they come iri touch. . One by one ho took the arguments against foreign missions and riddled them with his masterful logic. The spell of his power was over the audience and there was not a rustle of a noise during the time he spoke. As of old, he held the crowd tense and interested while ho spoke of the eternal truths he had learned about missions and the ad ditional value he had come to place on the question after a first hand exami nation of conditions where false gods are worshiped for the lack of a messenger to tell a benighted people of tho Chris tian religion. , ' : In introducing Mr. Bryan, the pastor j the Kev. W. S. King, said that it was a pleasure to present to tho audience A Christian statesman, Elder William Jennings Bryan." Mr. Bryan said that he hoped no one would bo led to believe from tho intro duction that ho was following any other course in making his talk than he had followed for years: WANTS SAME CHRISTIAN PLEASURE. "I am not willing," he said, "to let the preachers enjoy all the pleasures of Christianity, and have the exclusive privilege of testifying to it3 joys." He said he wanted to say as much di rectly pertaining to the subject of mis sions as ho could in the time allowed him, to justify the corning of any man who was there to hear him speak. I selected this subject,!' he contin ued, because of my experience in the missionary fields. I have been a church man since I was 14 years old. I was reared in the Cumberland Presbyterian faith and was a member of that church until I went to college. I found no Cumberland church there, and I joined the Presbyterian. I have attended church all my life and have felt a de gree of interest in all its undertakings, but I had no conception of the mission ary movement until I saw with my own eyes the chain of American mission aries we met on our trip. To know these people and see their work gives one an entirely different understanding of the work. "The more I saw of the religons of the Oriental countries the more highly I regarded our own. We hear a great many objections to foreign missions. Some argue that we have so much work at home that we can not afford to spend our time and money on an alien people. My experience is different. I have found that the man who gjves most liberally to foreign missions is the one who contributes most to his own church. We are stronger in our faith for every effort we put forth in their be half. 1 BIO KOREAN PRAYER MEETING. There are some who say that it is presumptuous to attempt to make others good while we are so imperfect. This is a complacent theory, but the injunction of the Bible is not 'let tho perfect help the imperfect,' but 'let the strong help the weak.' Another urges that the mission aries make such slow progress. What good work develops as "rapidly as we would wish it? There is very little en thusiasm in the man who makes as much progress in an undertaking as ho would like. . We might criticise the missionaries more justly if we did not make such slow progress ourselves. Where do you find a better environ ment for tho progress of Christanity than in this country? and yet one-half of the men resist the influence of their Christian environment. ; Consider the number of young men, brought up in Christian homes, who wander from the teaching of their youth, and consider the diffcultics under which the mission aries work, aud you will not be surpris ed at the slow progress in other coun tries. "In Korea there is one church that has an average attendance of 1,000 at prayer meeting. My experience is that ... t, ,.i i .i . i cijr a,t tuuicuca iu mis country nave so high an average. If the work of the missionaries is not as productive of results and not so rapid as we would wish, we might examine our own efforts. Probably some of the fault lies there. "It. i , , . . . ji is aiso urgeu titat our mission aries might make mistakes and involve this country in controversies with others. Probably our missionaries do make mistakes. It is unfortunate that we have no perfect men to send to foreign mission fields, but I am of tho opinion that if we had a few perfect people w wouia nave so mucu worn in our own land that we could not spare them. CHINESE DIED. FOR FAITH. "We are a thousand times more 1 able to get Kito trouble on account of our people who go to these countries to make money off these people than on account of the missionaries who go to them to carry them a message and do them good.' Wherever the missionaries go they leave their impress for good In the Boxer uprising we have an ex ample of the attachment these people have for the Christian religion, once they are converted. Thousands of Chinamen were massacred because they refused to give up their faith. Kmt . ... xnere is anotner class tuat argue that God is too good to punish a people who have not heard his word preached. I am not wise enough, and I shall not attempt to say what God will do to the heathen after death, but I have seen them enjoy the Christian religion; I have seen its manifestations in their hearts and lives and its influence on their nations, and I am not content to see them deprived of its blessings on eartn. . "Others say one religion is good for one peoplo and another religion for an other. I havo wondered if the con verted heathen has not been puzzled be cause wo have used our biblo so little. I met a missionary, a native of South Carolina, who had gone 100 miles up the'Congo and visited a tribe far from any settlement of white men. With this missionary were two young men, sons of the chief of the tribe. He was bringing them to this country to edu cate. Was there ever a greater evidence of faith than tho willingness of this man to send his boys with a stranger into a strange land to be taught the white man's beliefs?

Old National 'Bank Union City, Tennessee JUDGE CATE Named to Fill Late Judge John M. Taylor's Place. Ex-State Senator H. M. Cate, of New port, was appointed Saturday to the Court of Civil Appeals by Gov. Hooper to succeed the late Judge J. M. Taylor. Having been apprised of the efforts of friends of lawyers in different parts of the State to urge candidates for the position, Gov. Hooper decided to save them the trouble, if the man he had in mind would accept. He therefore wired to Mr. Cate tendering him the appoint ment and received an answer accepting the place. Judge Cate was a member of the State Senate in 1903, and was a conspicuous figure on the Republican side that year. He placed Gov. Hooper in nomination at the Jlepublicau convention last year. He is about 47 years old and was born in Sevier County For many years he lived in Jefferson County and later re moved to Newport, where ho has resid ed for many years. He received his literary education at Cason and Newman College. He is known all over East Tennessee as an able and successful lawyer and is held in high esteem. He was an ardent Pro hibitionist in the Legislature and sup ported the independent judiciary in the recent campaign. He is a conservative Republican and has never been much in politics, his only office having been that of State Senator. In speaking of the appointment Gov. Honppr said: "Mr. Cate is my personal friend, but the appointment is not personal. It is not political, for if it were I would have sought a man elsewhere than in my own county. It is purely judicial. It is a recognize! fact among the bar of East Tennessee that Senator Cate has all the qualifications that fit him for the bench, and that ho will be a useful and hard worker from the very beginning." This gives East Tennessee two places on the Court of Civil Appeals, West and Middle Tennessee having had that honor pf-evious to tho death of Judge Taylor. The new member will bo the first Republican on the highest courts of the Stato for many years. RECIPROCITY WITH CANADA. 'resident Taft Will Certainly Call an Extra Session. Washington, Feb. 19 The first au- thorative announcement that President Taft will call an extra session of Con gress if the Senate fails to act upon the McCall bill putting into effect the Ca nadian reciprocity agreement, came to- ay from Mr. McCall himself, follow- ng an interview witn tne rresiuent at the White House. According to Mr. McCall's announce ment, the President feels that ho is un der an international obligation to sum mon an extra session if it be necessary to get action on the reciprocity agree ment. That session would bo called immediately following the adjournment of Congress at noon March 4. While it is the evident purpose of the President in permitting the announce ment of Mr. McCall to avoid an extra session by inducing Senators to act upon the agreement, it is the opinion of many about the capitol that in all probability the statement 1ms come too late. Few Senators are sanguine enough to predict that action will bo taken on the agreement in the upper branch of -Congress at this session, while some in sist there will be a vote. CHANCES MEAGER. " t , With appropriation bills in a badly congested state, the Lorimer case pend ing, with the permanent tariff board bill pressing for consideration; with the general service pension bill being urged by many Senators and with the resolu tion for the popular election of Senators coming up daily as the unfinished busi ness, it seems that the chance for action upon the Canadian reciprocity agree ment are slight, hut of course, condi tions may change. There is some prospect that tho Lori mer case may be disposed of Wednesday following a speech which Senator Lori mer will make in his own behalf, but there is no apparent likelihood of early votes on any of the other important measures mentioned. Opponents Af the reciprocity agree ment in tho Senate are viewing with complacency," not to say satisfaction, the congested conditions existing in that body. The demands of public business are such that a vote on reci1 procity can be avoided easily without the appearance of a fillibustor. The bill carrying the agreement into effect prob ably will not bo reported out of the fi nance committee before Thursday next at the earliest. At that time there will remain only seven and a half legislative days of the present session. Following his interview with Presi dent Taft, Mr. McCall also made tho important announcement that the Presi dent would veto any tariff legislation passod by the Democratic house and approved by a nearly Democratic Sen ate if that should be necessary to main tain the Republican party's protective principles.
