Marshall & Baird, Union City, Tenn FRIDAY, MAY 23, 1913. Entered at the post office at Union City. Ten nessee, a tecoudluM mail matter. Announcements. For Register. MII.NER. We are nuthoriwd to announce R. f. (Koh) Milner as a candidate for Register of filnon County, subject to the action of the liemocrutic party. General election to be held first Thursday ia August. 114. Wri,Kr;Rto?T-We are authorised to announce W. T. Wiikemon a candidate for Rcsrister of Obion County, subject to the action of the Demoorntic party. Election first Thursday in Auiiiint, 1914. Many of our readers will be glad to liear that the home-coming letters are bearing fruit. Numbers have respond ed and we reproduce some who have al ready accepted the invitation to be with us at the fair next fall. Union City proposes to do the thing up brown jn entertaining our old time ft'ie'nds. We want to welcome them back home again. We are giad thoy are coming, and hope that the visit will be one of the events of a lifetime. We are working on the fair program now and hope to have everything in good shape. The city will have on its Sunday best clothes and company manners. One or two only epoak of a prior engagement, but we are satisfied that this will be changed in time. They certainly cannot resist the appeal to come home agaiu. "Back ward, turn backward, 0 time in your flight and make me a child again, just for to-night." Maybe not so beautifully painted ia the picture, but the home coming will call us back to the old scenes and associations, so much that the ills of age and time will be forgotten. Remember we have just put on the finishing touches of the Great White Way. We have enumerated many other things in the letter mailed to old friends and young ones. We are beginning now, right now, on our new concrete walk system, to be largely finished by fair time.' We are going to have some really interesting added attractions at the fair. Maybe you think we won't, but we are indeed. We are going to put the big rod apples on top this time, and we are going to have some more big red apples in the bottom of the barrel. We are going to make this oc casion worth while or somebody will know the reason why. Come on with your : letters accepting the invitation, Tho others will be here and you can't afford to stay at home. Anyone de siring one of the printed invitations to mail a relative or friend please call at this office or on J. W. Woosley and get it. Everybody should join in mailing these invitations. Two of the young men, whose mimes do not appear among the activities of the White Way celebration program, were the promoters, Grover Schloifer and Brother DeGraffenreid, who are en titled to a lion's share of the credit for this splendid new public achievement. Tho Business Men's Club", of course, is officially responsible for the work, but the men behind tho guns were the young men whose names we have men tioned. They worked with no abating interest to organize the movement, to secure the funds, and to make the White Way an assured fact. They were .aided in the movement substantially by J. C. Reynolds in soliciting the money a a and in many otlier ways oy air. viem Burdick, one of the most enterprising and optimistio young men in Union City. These men made the White Way a go and put Union City on the map of real enterprise. They are the men who made Union City famous, and we want to lift our hats to thenu It is one of the glorious achievements of a century, and we say all honor to the promoters of tho White Way. We understand from one of our citi zens, who has just mado a tour of the county, that the levees are in a deplor able condition. The levee roads are so disreputably bad that it is barely pos sible to .travel them, and by no means are they in a condition for farm and other traffic of a heavy nature. An automobile would soon be twisted out of shape if used on them to any con siderable extent. Tint- . U cut all to pieces. The Troy-Kenton levee is said to be impassable altogether. The citizen referred to was out under taking to show a visitor and prospector our glorious country. Just imagine one accustomed to pikea being shown over a country with roads in such a fii as this. Encouraging indeed.- We do not want to make any undue criticism, but the gentleman who reported this is a repu table citizen, and he was anxious to have t' public know the facts. Bear in i.nu that we have some very highly improve, public' highways Irs the vi ch'ty of Union VI' Y, !: are ma has been some progress made along this line. But the gentleman confined his re marks altogether to the roads along the levees. Obion County has been making progress in the road line, but she had a long way to go and there still remain some very primitive conditions in some parts of the county and on some of the roads. The levees are an example of this. If the statement is correctly re ported some of the commissioners or contractors should get busy. Remem ber it was agreed that springtime was the time to work the roads not after crops were laid by. The road law was drawn up to take care of this point. Are we to continue violating the law. For goodness sake, let's appoint somebody who can spare the time from the farm to look after the road. If we don't do this the road3 will continue to suffer and Obion County will continue to drag while other counties are coming to the front. ... - ' "" Speaking of the roads, the county also needs the high-school spirit. We need high schools. We can educate our boys and girls at home cheaper than sending them to other points out of the county to school. Why not keep the money at home and establish high schools. It will cost something in taxes, but the money will be distributed in the county instead of being carried away never to return. The cost will be less in any event, and tho county will be benefited an hundred fold. Obion County is fully able to have high schools, and the County Court should provide for them. The White Way crowd was one of the greatest surprises Union City people have ever known. It was a regular storm party. Even the men who ad vertised it did not know they were com ing. There were vory few people here late in the afternoon, butj.be crowd ap peared after supper as if by magic fill ing the White Way streets. It was a monster demonstration, and the wonder of it all was that there was not a single accident or a disturbance of any kind, not a ripple on the smooth surface of good humor, Everything was perfect, or apparently so, with good order and decorum. Has Broken Speed Records. In the handling of the committee on the whole Representative Finis Garrett of Tennessee, chairman of this great committee during the tariff discussions, has broken all speed records. His de cisions from ths chair -have, been clear cut, absolutely free from all involved expressions and there have been no situ ations which he has not handled with a masterful insight into parliamentary precedents. The free and easy discus sions which always characterize the do- bates under the five-minute rule have at times surged up into the storm of per sonalities, but Finis Garrett has a mothod of handling the gavel which speaks vol umes for a firm resolve to run the show right. In other words, Representative Garrett has gained the praise of Repub licans and Democrats and Progressives alike in the short and sharp way in which he has handled the business. On the Republican side Representa tive Mann, of Illinois, minority leader, has added one more chapter to his long roll of parliamentary achievements. Fol lowing probably every word and every punctuation mark of the 4,100 items, he has, almost entirely alone, kept the Democrats on their toes day and night, ready to combat the objections from tho minority.-Washington Star. , - JOHN H. HINEMON Head of Arkansas School for the Blind. The election of Hon. John H. Hine mon as superintendent of the Arkansas School for the Blind is considered as a most important recognition of the long public services of that distinquished edu cator. Mr. Hinemon has held many educa tional positions and has visited schools and institutions in every part of the United States. He was president of the Arkansas Teachers '.Association in ISO" and vice president of the National As sociation many times, and for ten years wm h Arkansas member of the execu tive committee for education in the South. He was State Superintendent of Public Instruction from 1902 to 1906, and subsequently served several years as president of Henderson-Brown Col lege at Arkadelphia. FIRST LOCATED AT MONTICELLO. John II. Hinemon came to Arkansas, a very young man, about twenty-five years ago. He began his educational career at Monticello, where he estab lished the Hinemon University School, a fitting school of high grade. In the years at Monticello he trained a body of young men whobave achieved eminence Jin a u lines ot iiic. lie ;h.3 to rt fc-r to bis most advanced class during his , first year at Monticello three "boys" i of whom he is justly proud Dr. Yates Tope, of Monticello, Judge Calvin T. Catham, of Hot Springs, and Mr. Ed Cornish, vice president of the German National Bank of this city. These are typical of the young men he has sent forth from his school every year wher ever he taught. Others of his Monti cello boys are Mr. E. 0. Manees, of Argenta, and Dr. A. E. Horner and Rev. C. J. Wade, of this city Later Mr. Hinemon went to Pine Bluff ascjty superintendent. His five years in that office mark an era in the educational history of the State. CAXVASSED BTATE FOR AMKNPMENT. Then , began the era of new and splendid school buildings Hot Springs, Pine Bluff, Texarkana, Little Rock and the larger towns erecting school build ings ranging in cost from seventy-five to one hundred and fifty thousand dol lars, the cost of the new building at Arkadelphia for instance, being forty five thousand dollars. A moment's re flection will recall the truthfulness of the review of Mr. Hinemon's educational career and will confirm the statement in the editorial column of the Gazette some time ago when it declared that the cam paign of John H. Hinemon for an in crease of taxation for public education meant more to the State than all the political campaigns in the State for the last ten years. HIS POLITICAL INTENTIONS. Mr. Hinemon was a few years ago a candidate for the nomination for Gov ernor and has been quite active in State politics. In answer to a question as to his political intentions for the future, he said: "Now that I am gonig into one of the State institutions, I shall not take an active part in the selecton or election of State officers. Of course, I shall vote as usual but beyond that I shall not take any partisan part in the campaign. I shall do my best to make the State School for the Blind the foremost insti tution of its kind in the whole country." Arkansas Democrat. Faculties for State Institutes. Milan II. E.

The first regular examination for the teachers of Obion County will be held at the Public School building in Union City on Friday and Saturday, June 6 and 7, 1913. The work will begin at 8 o'clock a. m. Friday. The Reading Course will bo Saturday afternoon at 1 o'clock. The County Institute will not be held at this time a3 I had first planned. I make this change that the Institute may be nearer the opening of the schools so that whate ;er good the'teachers may get from it they can take it into the schools better than if held earlier. Also the teachers can devote all of their time to the institute work and not be worried with the examinations. There will be no examination at the close of the In stitute. RENEWALS. All teachers who hold roll of honor ; certificates, who hold State primary cer tificates, or who hold county certificates of this county and havo taught eight months will have their certificates re newed, provided they take the exam ination in the Reading Course on June 7 and attend the Institute in July. All others will be required to take the examination in full. The grades will be given soon after the examination, but no certificates issued till after the Institute. - AH who attended seven of the Read ing Course meetings will be exempt from examination in the Reading Course, pro vided they have studied the books and attend the Institute. Yours very truly, C. L. Ridings, County Superintendent. v Card of Thanks.
