Nute, in a statement setting forth his reasons, tendered his resignation 'as Superintendent oi the City Schools. The action was precipitated probably by some contentions, recently augmented by new issues, concerning his manage ment of the schools. The Board de ferred action in the matter until the regular meeting of that body. There is considerable comment over some of Mr. Nute's lectures to the High School classes, but as to the exact and specific details we can not say. The schools have grown largely under the Superin tendent's management. There is al ways, however, and will ever be some dissensions in public school matters. It is hardly possible for one man to please all his patrons and pupils for any length of time, especially in a school sustained through taxation. The public school system has its multiplied advantages, but this is one of the draw backs which cannot be overcome. Union City has had more than one of these troubles and the probabilities are that we will always have them. Work that is filthy, unsanitary, and that would not be tolerated by strict board of health, is often carried to Chinese laundries, as 'tis a well known fact that Modern Method Steam Laun dries will not accept work of negroes and mix it up with that of its white patrons. 45-1 1 Agricultural Association. The annual meeting of the Obion County Agricultural Improvement As sociation was held as scheduled on Mon day at 1 p. m. at the courthouse. The officers of last year were re-elected with out change. A brief summary of the work of last year and the purpose of the association in the future was given by President George Dahkne. He stated that the plans which were formulated for the past year had been accomplished by laying carefully and thoughtfully a well founded basis upon which can be built the work of permanent soil improve ment. ' There have been no radical changes made and the association has no glaring figures to report, but it is be lieved that the changes which have been made and the method which it is now openly and positively advocating are absolutely unassailable in the light of a practical permanent system of agricyl ture. These recommendations were placed before the meeting by J. C. McAmis in a plain direct manner. He stated in no uncertain terms that there was no long er any question about the practicability, under proper conditions, of reducing the acreage of corn by substituting for it, soy beans, alfalfa, barley and winter oats; of increasing the yield ana stands of red clover by liming, of increasing the profit from livestock by productive winter pastures of crimson clover and rye, oats, rape and Canada peas, wheat vetch, etc. There is no longer any doubt that many of these simple things can and must be done if we are to live up to our opportunities. It only remains now for them to be put into general use. With this in view, a number of farmers promised to do many of these things on sm all scale and report results at i future meeting. An auditing committee was appoint ed, which gave, a report at the meeting of the financial condition of the asso ciation. ...
