When I was 16 years old I got married and at 18 years I gave birth to twins and it left me with very poor health. I could not walk across the floor without having to sit down to rest and it was hard for me to keep about and do my work.

The following was addressed to a very dear good lady of this city, and it should enlist at once the sympa thy and support of our people. No nation of people on earth have been so true to our people as those of LaBelle France. First ally in Ameri can Independence and first aid in Southern Confederacy, France de serves our everlasting gratitude, and we should come to the relief of her suffering soldiers whenever there is a call for help. Read the letter: My dear Mrs. Swiggart: There is a call for ten million surgical dress ings to be sent to hospitals in France. Will you not accept the chairman ship of your town and organize your friends and acquaintances into a circle or circles to contribute ma terials and make the same into these dressings? Samples and full direc tions for the procedure of work will be sent you from the Nashville headquarters upon your acceptance of this office. The need of the wounded soldier in France is dire. ,They cry to us in America for help. Can we ignore this plea? Splendid men are being mowed down daily; they are brought in mangled and bleeding unto death. Many die for want of bandages with which to dress their wounds. So great is their need, that bandages are taken from the convalescent sol dier and from the dead, and used for the freshly wounded, without time to wash or sterilze them. Never has the world faced a situ ation like this. LaBelle France, fighting and bleeding for her homes and counting it a glory to die for them France, first and only ally of American Independence! Bel gium, "Europe's little ewe lamb" which has been sacrificed! England, from whose parent-stem we spring all call to us for help. . Lapped in ease and security, shall we be unmindful of this "Pentecost of Calamity?" Shall we, whose own soil has also been drenched with the blood of patriots and sodden with the tears of women, be deaf to the cry of humanity? We who are pioneers in the cause of democracy, shall we not help to bind the wounds of those now carrying its bloody banner? A whole continent lan guisheth; is not your heart touched to the depth with the spectacle of its grief? Give therefore quickly, give gen erously, give prayerfully, asking God to overrule thes calamities to the good of a stricken people. MRS. JOSEPH. H. THOMPSON. Obion Countians Honored. We spent last week in the Capitol City of our State mixing and ming ling with the best people of the world. The various Masonic Grand bodies of the State were holding their annual communications. The Grand Chapter of Royal Arch Ma sons met on the 24th ult. and con cluded their business on the 25th ult. The Grand Council was also in session the 24th and 25th ult. The Grand Chapter of the Order of the Easter Star met the 25th ult and concluded its work on the night of the 26th ult. The Worshipful Grand Lodge convened on the morn ing of the 26th ult. and concluded its labors on the 28th ult. There were a vast number of Ma sons from all parts of the States in attendance, and the eood ladies members of the Order of the Eastern Star, were there in vast numbers. as fair a flowers - MWUJi,A and the pride and hope' of the State. A more pleasant week we never spent in our lives. Dr. P. N. Matlock, formerly of Mason Hall, but now a resident of Union City, an honored citizen, a reputable physician and a worthv ex-Confederate soldier, and above all a Christian and renowned Ma son, was elected Grand High Priest or the Grand Royal Arch Masons of the State, the highest honor within the gift of that body. A high honor bestowed on a most worthy citizen. In the Grand Chapter in the Or der of the Eastern Star, Mrs. Ge neva Dodd, of Mason Hall, was elected Worthy Grand Mason, the highest honor to be bestowed unon this Grand Order, and that the hon or was bestowed on a worthv and estimable lady everyone who knows Mrs. Dodd will readily admit. While there are many other ladies in our county that are worthy in every re spect, none are more worthy than Mrs. Dodd, and we are sure that the work of the Order will prosper during her administration, for she is eminently qualified to direct the affairs ,of this good and rapidly growing organization. We are proud of the women of our county and State and we wish that all men could witness the workings of this great Order; then thpv mil Id have a more accurate idea of the executive ability of our exeat commonwealth. We wish it wrp nossible for us. in this article, to mention by name all the ladies in attendance at this meeting and make such comment as is their Just due, but this is impossible, and we must content ourselves by saying that we are Droud that it was our privilege to be associated with this great host of lovely, renned women hood, who are doing such a noble work thru the order of the Eastern Star. This association gives us inspira tion for higher ideals, nobler thoughts and renewed resolves for a better and higher life." Our county was well represented by both ladies and gentlemen. Mrs. LeSuer, the retiring Worthy Grand Matron, as well as others whom it has been our pleasure to know, can, as presiding officers, put to shame many boastful men. At the closing of the session of the Grand Chapter when, the newly elected officers were installed, many beautiful bouquets were presented to the various officers, and while the flowers in their various colors were beautiful, there was no comparison between them and the fair ladies to whom they were presented. There was but one sadness to per vade the many pleasures of the week; in our attendance upon the sessions of the Worshipful Grand Lodge, we were made sad on ac count of the absence of some men whom we never before failed to see at its meetings, and especially did we miss the presence of former Grand Secretary John B. Garrett and Past Grand Master Col. H. H. Ingersol, both of whom have passed to the Grand Lodge above since the last annual communication, but we feel assured that while those two brothers, as well as many others, were absent in person they were with us in spirit and are reaping the reward in the land of the blest.
