West Tenn. Wheat
Crop looking Good.
S. F. Howard, Esq., of Number
Seven, was a business visitor here
Monday. He informed us that the
wheat crop throughout his section
is looking very well indeed, and that
the acreage in Obion County is con
siderably larger than last year.
Dyersburg, Tenn., April 19. The
condition of the wheat crop in this
section is normal in spite of the un
favorable season of February and
March. The acreage for the county
has been increased over last year
more than 30 per cent.
' In the Dyersburg section the in
crease has been 60 per cent. Some
districts in this immediate section
that have never planted wheat be
fore have a liberal acreage in. The
reduction in cotton acreage will be
about 20 per cent. More garden
seed has been sold by dealers in this
county than any two previous years.
Farmers are beginning to feel good
over the prospects of a good season.
Ripley, Tenn., April 19. From
best information the wheat crop in
Lauderdale County is looking fine.
The acreage is about five times more
than usual, caused by a disposition
on the part of farmers to diversify
and get away from cotton. None has
been plowed up for any other crop.
Brownsville, Tenn., April 19.
The wheat crop in Haywood County
is in an excellent condition. There
won't be any of the crop plowed up
and planted in cotton, as the farmers
of this county are determined to
raise plenty of everything to eat and
then plant cotton for the money
Dresden, Tenn., April 19. The
wheat crop in this section is about
40 per cent increase over 1914 in
acreage. It has come out wonder
fully in the last few days and it is
now believed that an average yield
will be harvested from the present
crop. It is not believed that any of
it will be plowed up for the purpose
of planting cotton.
Clerk for Prison.
John J. Cherry, for many years
chief clerk of the State prison, un
der the administrations of former
Democratic Governors, was appoint
ed by Warden C. C. Shaw at the
main prison Wednesday to the same
position. Mr. Cherry's appointment
will be the source of much gratifica
tion to the many people in the State
who are familiar with his qualiflca
tlons for this office.
Chief Clerk Cherry was the official
who gave the State such satisfactory
service in this position for ten years,
during the administrations of Mc
Millin, Frazier, Cox and Patterson
He also served several months under
Hooper, being retained on account of
his efficiency in the position. Mr.
Cherry's administrations of the af
fairs under his supervision attracted
wide attention, and he enjoyed the
reputation of being one of the most
competent chief clerks in the United
States. He is an expert in this kind
of work, and is generally recognized
as the best man in the State for the
place. Mr. Cherry will assume his
new duties to-day, succeeding Geo.
F. Clark, of Nashville, who was ap
pointed by Gov. Hooper. Mr. Cher
ry's former term was from 1901 to
1911. He is a well known Demo
crat, and is about 65 years of age.
Chief Clerk Cherry is a native of
Obion County, Union City being his
home. He has lived in Nashville for
some time, and enjoys the friend
ship of many people throughout this
section of the State and in West
Tennessee. The position is one of
the most lucrative to be filled by
Warden Shaw, who makes all ap
Dointments at the prison, under the
new law, except those of prison
physician and the chaplain.
To the Public.
I have this day sold my interest in
The Toggery and will retire from active
work for a short time owing to my
health. In retiring I want to ask all
my friends to give The Toggery their
support, for in so doing it will be a favor
to me. My friends and associates, Mr.
Prieto and Mr. Joyner, will take pleas
ure in serving you and will appreciate
your business.
Yours very respectiuny,
April 20, 1915. J. W. Paedue.

Hines, Ala. "I must confess", sayj
Mrs. Eula Mae Reid, of this place, "thai
Cardui, the-woman's tonic, has done me
a great deal of good.
Before I commenced using Cardui. I
would spit up everything 1 ate. I had a
tired, sleepy feeling all the time, and was
irregular. I could hardly drag around,
and would have severe headaches con
tinuously. Since taking Cardui, I have entirely
quit spitting up what I eat. Everything
seems to digest all right, and 1 have
gained 10 pounds in weight."
If you are a victim of any of the numer
ous ills so common to your sex, it is
wrong to suffer.
For half a century, Cardui has been re
lieving just such ills, as is proven by the
thousands of letters, similar to the above,
which pour into our office, year by year.
Cardui is successful because it is com
posed of ingredients which act specifically
on the womanly constitution, and helps
build the weakened organs back to health
and strength.
Cardui has helped others, and will help
you, too. Get a bottle today. You
won't regret it. Your druggist sells it

We are instructed by the Rives
correspondent to say that the first
schoolhouse in Rives was not a log
house as reported, but a box house
made with lumber from one of the
early saw mills in the county. This
was not a bad mistake for a news
paper. If we all got thru as light
as that the newspaper would be
more accurate than the best of the
historians. There are lots of inac
curacies in the histories.
