Death of Marshall Wright, in France.
Sergeant Major William M.
Wright, better knowa as Marshall
Wright, has made tin supreme sac
rifice and Kiven his his lifo for his
j country. His aunt.Mrs. Nannie Pewitt
na3 reccivca omciai n-j'.ico irom Ad
jutant General' Harris r.t Washing
ton that ho died on the 8 th cf March
of mcning'i3. Ho was located at
Toul, in North France, and . was
chief clerk of the Judge Advocate
General of the Second Army, whose
headquarters wero at the city of
Toul in France. He had been pro
moted to the position of regimental
Sergeant Major, a very responsible
position, and had chargo of the of
fice and records of tho Judge Advo
cate General, Col. Monrow. He has
Just returned from Italy, where he
had been on a fourteen day's leav-
of abaonco by permission of Gep i
Bullard. .
Sergeant Wright left the Lebanon
law School, where ho was a student
of law, and volunteered for the ser
vice, on Jan. 1, 1918. Ho was mus
tered in as a member of Co. I, 8th
Field Battalion, Signal Corps, on
about the 7 Oof January, at Fort
Leavtfnworth.tind was then seat,
with his battalion, to Camp Greon
for training. They wero sent to
France about June 1, and soon there
after went on the firing line, and
wero engaged In the soveie battlei
around Chateau Thlorry, and Ser
geant Wright went "over the top'
at Chateau Thierry, with his battal
Ion. Ho was gassed and also re
ceived a slight wound in the kneo
in this battle. After remaining in
the hospital for about throe weeks,
ho was ag:,in ready " for service, and
was then detailed for clerical work
in the 2nd Replacement Army.
About the time of the signing of the
Armistice, he was promoted to the
position of Scrgt. Major, and made
chief clerk in the office of the Judge
Advocate General, which position he
held to the tlmo of his death, having
charge of the records of the office
with several clerks and stenogra
phers under him.
YOung Wright was a bright, Intel
ligent, ambitious young man, and
his promotions came to him on his
merits, without any outside assist
ance.
He was reared in Union City by
his aunt, Mrs. Pewitt, and was
nephew of Judge W. H. Swiggart,
After completing his education and
taking a special business course, he
worked in tho office of Judge Swig
gart as his stenographer for a short
while. He was then tendered the
position of clerk of the Circuit Court
at Union City, by Judge Jones, to fill
a vacancy in that office, but being
under age, he could not accept the
appointment. He was then made
Deputy Clerk under Esq. Howard,
and. discharged the duties of this
position for nearly two years, in a
most acceptable manner. In the fall
of 1917 he resigned this position and
entered the Lebanon Law School as
student of law; but about the first
of Januray, 1918, he gave up this
work, and volunteered for the ser
vice in the army. It was his desire
and purpose to resume the study of
law, as soon as he was discharged
from the service. He was ambitious
to become a member of the bar; and
his friends anticipated that he
would have a successful career in
that profession. . He had an unusual
y brignt, quick mma and gave
ijiTiu'fte of a useful and (successful
career in his chosen profession.
The news of Marshall Wright's
death was, so unexpected, and came
suddenly, that his relatives and
friends were grectly shocked. His
death 'casts a gloom over this com
munity. He was only 23 years old,
and his last letter to Judge Swiggart,
written from Genoa, Italy, was full
bouyancy and hope, and indicat
ed that he was enjoying his trip In
Italy. His untimely death is another
the costly sacrifices which our
community has been called on to
make in the great war for liberty
and right.
The relatives of Scrgt. Wright
have our deepest sympathy, and tho
sympathy of the entire community,
in the sad bereavement which they
have -sustained by the death of this
promising young man.
Half Your Living (
Without Honey Cost'
We are all at a danger point On1
the use of good common sense In our
1919 farm and garden operations, de
pends prosperity or our "going broke.".
Even at present high prices no- one!
can plant all or nearly all cotton, buy
food and grain at present prices from
supply merchant on credit, and make
money. Food and grain aro higher In
proportion than are present cotton
prices. , i
It's a time above all others to play
safe; to produce all possible food,
grain and forage supplies on your own
acres; to cut down the store bill.
A good piece of garden ground,
rightly planted, rightly tended and
kept planted the year round, can be
made to furnish nearly half your liv
ing. It will save you more money
than you made on the best two or
three acres of cotton you ever grew!

Mrs. Smyth G. Allen,-
Union City, Tenn. ' -
Dear Sir:
You ask me what I think of the
Cleveland Tractor. I can only say that
as for myself 1 think it is the only
practical tractor for the firmer. My
reason is this. It is so simple and so
easy to handle, and you can put it in a
place that a horse can go, and many
places be cant go. There is not much
to it, and what there is, is power.
As for the actual weight it can pull.
I do not know. I pulled a separator
for my neighbor, G. C. ' Frost. He
said that weighed 13,000 lbs., and the
rear wheels were miring near 6 inches
in the ground, and pulled it up a very
steep grade aod I could not tell that it
was behind me.
I went over 24 acres of wheat land
last fall, both ways, with two 8-foot
section barrows behind it, a two-man
log on each harrow, and a 16-foot log
behind the barrows, iu 1 days, and
used 15 gallons of gas. 11 to 12 gallons
of gas will break about 8 acres of
ground on an average. .
You can do anything almost with the
Cleveland Tractor plow, barrow, disc
and log, and turn as short almost as
you can with a team.
Yours respectfully.
A. D. Brock,
Fulton, Ky,, E. 3.
P. 8. When you have the demon
stration let me know and I will try to
come down.
