Last year some of tho district fairs featured pig club work and gave some cmphasi3 to drying and ether activi ties. In the corn club work special emphasis has bten put on county and community exhibits,' most of the prizes asked for being in these classes. The first prize is usually $30 or more, and 6 to 10 prizes are given ranging down to $5. These exhibits arc, of course, arronged by county and, within tho county, by community. In the pig club work some effort has been made in the line of com munity and county exhibits, but the larger part of the money has been placed individual premiums. In the girls' club work most of the premiums have been on individ ual exhibits, with a large number of classes open to entry. One poultry woman of White Coun ty decided, three years ago, that poultry needed only good attention to pay good returns. She constructed a poultry house 12 by 25 feet, and changed her mon grel flock to standard-bred Brown Leghorns. This year, during the months of January, February, and March, she had 62 hcn3 that cost hor for feed $22.89. Theso hens laid eggs that were sold to the stores for $93.09, leaving her a net profit of $70.20. This poultry keeper is so well satis fied with these returns, that she has planned to raise this year sufficient pullets to give her a fr.rni flock of 150 for next winter. She talks fre quently with the county homo demon stration agent, and looks to the agent for help when difficulties rise. White County generally ia making groat strides in poultry. There are nearly 500 boys and girls in the county, who have this year Joined a poultry club, when solicited by the county home demonstration agent. White County has a half million dol lar commercial poultry business each year. The local Vanderbilt Alumni cel ebrated Founder's Day with an en thusiastic banquet at the Palace Hotel Tuesday evening.

Following is the poem mentioned above: A RECORD. (Dedicated to our Dead.) (By David Morton, B. S. '09.) And these rode forth, and came not home again," So runs the cryptic story from old time, Of come who saved a city, nameless men Whose glory sweetens still the tale and rhyme. Long since, those towers are scatter ed in the grass. The earth forgets what treasure had they then; And still this briefest record will not pass, Of some gone forth, who came not home again. So let it be with us, and with our Dead: The ancient danger and the an cient need, The ancient answer given where they bled; Let later-comers, musing as they read, Find here a record of a race of men: 'And these rode forth, and came not home again." Couch-Ray. On Saturday afternoon, May 24, at 5 o'clock, Miss Luna Ray, of Union City, and Mr. Marcu3 Couch, of Hick man, were united in marriage at Squire Bruer's near Portenius.

BRANDING A LIE A report has been circulated through this commuity that the principal objection to the Fordson Tractor is that it will "rare up" and turn over, thereby injuring or killing the operator. We want to state as emphatically as it is possible to state that this is a lie out of the whole cloth and emanates only from disgruntled parties. We state open and above board that the Fordson Tractor will not "rare up" or turn over any more quickly than any tractor of any make at any price. We state further that it is possible to turn over any tractor of any make at any price, provided it is overloaded. But the ' possi bility 'of turning over a Fordson Tractor is no greater under normal load and conditions than any tractor of any make on the American market. Therefore we re peat that the statement that has gone forth in this com munity that the Fordson Tractor will "rare up" or turn over any quicker than any other tractor under normal conditions is a malicious lie that is fabricated to injure the sale of the Fordson Tractor.
