An active career was ended, a long, useful life was closed when at about 6 o'clock last Saturday morning T. J. Latimer answered the final summons and went to reap the reward of a life . well lived and to rest from the worries and works of this old world. Forev eral months Mr. Latimer had been con fined to his room. With his wife he went to Trenton early in the summer, thinking the change would be beneficial, but bis health did not improve. About one month ago they returned home and the sick man grew weaker day by day until the end, attentive physicians, kind .friends and loving relatives being unable to restore health. On Sunday at 12:30 p. m. a large crowd gathered at the home on Church street where a short service was held, then the body removed to Beech church, ,jvest of the city, and a more lengthy service conducted by Rev. J. L. Hudg ins, editor of the Cumberland Presby terian, Nashville, and the remains laid to rest in Beech Cemetery in the pres sence of a large number of relatives :""A and friends. " .

An unspeakable sadness has fallen upon us. Were it not for these words, "Lo, I am with you always, even unto the end," our hearts would be completely crushed. f Monday morning, Oct. 18, 1915, at 5 o'clock, an angel came down to earth to the country home of Mr. and Mrs. Claud Tucker near Fulton, Ky., and touched the little body of their baby boy, aged 6 years, 7 months and 18 days, and bore his sweet spirit away. Little Willard Lee had been suffering intensely for about ten days of blood poison. Drs Boaz, of Harris, Nailling, of Union City, and Luten, of Fulton, did every thing possible to alleviate his suffer ing and restore him to health, but to no avail. We would not, if we dared, ques tion the divine will, nor the mys terous purpose of our Heavenly Father. We know that he does all things well, and ever works to a pur pose for our good, so we just bear the blinding darkness as submissively as our human natures permit. "We may not know why death should come To take the dear one from our home, But tho our eyes with tears be dim. The Lord knows why we'll trust in him." To the father, mother and little sister words of condolence are void of meaning, for words of their angel baby boy are ringing in their ears day and night. At every turn some thing he has left behind is tearing their hearts anew. You did all you could for your baby boy, but God has done more and in a much better way. It is hard, but God has called, and be has heard. He is not dead. In com forting fancy we see now his bright smiling face before us and we feel in our hearts and lives his glad sweet presence still. Gone, oh ye. t know, forever. But the influence Jf hi3 little life while here throws ack its beams of innocence and -purity, falling into our saddened hearts and lives and drawing us nearer in trust and service to God who has said "I will never forsaken thee." Willard Lee is now in heav en with some other who loved him! even as we loved him. We can fancy them all together loking this way and beckoning us to make haste and join them in the eternal home which Jesus has surely prepared for those that love and trust him. After a beautiful and touching service conducted by Brother Butts, of Union City, we laid his beautiful little form to sleep under a mound of flowers at Bethlehem Cemetery, where the sunshine and flowers keep guard always there to. await the resurrection morn, where, we trust,. we'll be an unbroken family in the home beyond." One Who Loved Him. To be Started About Nov. 10, 1915. And Carried on for 50 Days. A great agricultural campaign has been organized by the farmers, bankers and business men in 83 counties in Western Tennessee, Northern Mississippi and Eastern Arkansas. These eighty-three counties lie within a radius of 150 miles of Mem phis, Tenn. It, is not a Memphis campaign. It will be conducted on a co-operative basis under the aus pices of the Bureau of Farm Devel opment of Memphis. It will be in augurated about the 10th of Novem ber, 1915, and continued for forty or fifty days. There will be thirty to sixty meetings in each county, making a total of about 2,500 meet ings. Organized into the work are the most prominent interests of the three States where the campaign will be carried on, State Departments of Agriculture and Education, Bankers, Railroads, Farmers Union, Womens Clubs, Newspapers., and Commercial Organizations, assisted by the Inter national Harvester Company. A prominent feature of this great extension work is the plan of hold ing the meetings at the farm homes and in the country schools, as well as in the towns and villages. The farmers will not have to come to town to hear the speakers, but the speakers will go out to the homes of the people and discuss their in dividual problems. Sixty speakers will be divided into crews two speakers in each crew and routed in each county according to schedule Advance men will assist the local people in each county in making up their schedules of meetings. The speakers will -be in a county from one 'to two days. Each crew will hold three or four meetings a day. Each speaker will have large charts six. feet square to illustrate his lec ture. These charts will be pre pared to suit the conditions of the South. The farmers and business men of Mississippi, Arkansas and Tennessee are spending $25,000 in money, and as much in service to carry on this work. Booklets have been prepared to meet the needs of those who live and do business in he trade territory of Memphis. There are books on live stock farming, boll weevil, cattle ticks, on various crops such as corn, soy beans, cow peas, alfalfa and les pedeza, gardening, canning and poultry. The Memphis Bureau of Farm De velopment is directing the work Sixty speakers will be selected from well known agriculturists thruout the South men with national repu tations. Every one . prominent in his line These speakers will talk on cattle hogs, poultry, soil, legume crops, hog cholera, cattle ticks, boll weevil arid the things particularly adapted to each locality. Here is another valuable feature of the campaign; from twelve to fif teen of the speakers will have special lecture charts to use in the city and country schools. These speakers will talk home conveniences and sanita tion, cooking, canning, home eco nomics and the things that go to make better home life. Do you want this campaign?

Cash Prizes for our Good Nut Trees, or Tree Crops a New Agriculture, or Nature.'s Greatest Engines of Pro- duction, or Trees that work for us, or A Chance for the boys to hunt trees and make money. The most valuable land in the world Is In the Sahara Desert. It is made valuable by the date trees that cover every spot where enough water can be had to make them grow. This great land value comes because man has there utilized the productive power of the tree, nature's greatest engine of production. It is really remarkable that we in the United States have used trees so little, to do our work for us. An orchard of black walnuts, or shagbark hickories, or native hazels, or Ohio Valley pecans, with trees as good as the best wild ones now grow ing would be very, very valuable. Why don't we have them? Merely because we haven't noticed and haven't thought. It is high time we caught up with the people of the desert. We happen to have a million good Baldwin apple trees, and another million good navel orange trees, be cause somebody took pains to tell about the original good wild tree that started the million. By build ing and grafting, Uiat one Baldwin apple tree has become the parent of many millions. We i:ow know how to propagate all the nut trees, and can turn one good shaghark or black walnut or pecan or hasel into mil lions. But where are the suitable parent trees from which to graft and bud?. ' To help bring promising nut trees to light, and thus start a new in dustry, the Northern Nut Grower's Association is offering cash prizes of from $10 to $50 for the best tree of black walnuts, butternuts, shagbark, hickories, hazel nuts and Northern pecans, bend a dozen nuts from the best nut tree of any kind that you know of to Dr. W. C. Deming, Sec retary of the Northern Nut Growers' Association, ' Georgetown, Connecti cut, and ask for. particulars of the prizes and rules of the contest. We hope some of our readers will get these prizes, for there are some very fine nuts produced in the ter ritory covered by this paper.

Harry Brockman, who runs a small grocery in South Hickman, was robbed last night of $70, and badly hurt in an altercation with the burglar. The burglar entered the house thru a win dow, and had managed to get the money, amounting to $70, Saturday's sales, out of his trousers when he happened to let some silver money fall, the noise waking Brockman, who jumped out of bed and assailed the burglar. Brockman, who is in bad health and frail, was knocked down by the burglar, and When he got up, was knocked down again, falling against a table and striking an abcess in his side. . The burglar then made a safe getaway. The burglar entered the house about 2 o'clock, bloodhounds being put on ,the trail as soon as daylight came, I but no one has been arrested.
