Marshall & Baird, Union City, Tenn. FRIDAY, AUGUST 8, 1920. Entered at the post office at Union City, Ten nessee, aa second-class mail matter. The Campaign. . The political campaign in Obion County, aa It seems in every other county in the State, has been closely contested. Last Monday there was a large crowd in town and the politi cal friends of the varioua candidates were very busy. There was a great deal more stir perhaps over the race for Representative, very likely much more than the number of voters af fected. ' In the Governor's race, Geo. A. Gibbs and W. H. Swiggart, Jr., spoke at the courthouse. They both defended Governor Roberts. Mr. Gibbs explained the tax law and its operation; Gen. ' Swiggart defended the Governor against the calumny in the Tennessean. The scandal that the Tennessean has been trying to fasten on the administration was in nowise charged to Governor Roberts but his administration was criticised for keeping questionable characters on the pay roll. Man that he is Governor Roberts preferred to bear the sting than to move in any way to the personal Injury possibly of any one in the department service. The young attorneys both made fine speeches and were given the clos est attention by an audience of well known Democrats and citizens.

In the border State3, new Mexico especially, the term "Mexican" gen erally refers to that clans best repre sented by the shecpherder and the section hand, usually mixed with In dian blood. The old families of the Southwest of pure Castilian blood are well educated, charming compan ions and gracious entertainers. At about the time our troops were first sent down to the Rio Grande, when it seemed that war with Mex ico was an immediate possibility, we had occasion to. visit a Southwestern State on a business trip, part of which was made by stage. We were the only passenger. The conversa tion naturally drifted to the Mexican question, and to draw out the opin ion of our Irish! stage driver we asked him: "What do you think of the Mexi can as a member of the human fam ily anyway?" "Well, sor, I'll tell you," he re plied; "I think the Almighty should have put fur on thim so wo covld have some winter sport!" ! An Explanation. In reply to inquiries in regard to same, the City Cemetery Association wishes to state that the annual dues on each lot are $2.00 whether you have or have not a loved one there yet. An unkept vacant lot would mar the appearance of the cemetery as much as would one made more sacred because a loved one rests there. We recognize that there is a right and sacredness which belongs to the individual, and that each one would deem it a privilege to pay the annual. dues rather than for it to be done by the city. We would be glad for every one to visit our cemeteries often and watch the steady improve ment, remembering that it will take longer to beautify any plot of ground that has been left for years over grown with weeds, grass and under growth than it would one having been well kept from the beginning. We do not wish to be tedious, but to explain to the lot owners who have a right to enquire of and to make sug gestions to the management and complaint, if need be. . MRS., J. F. HOWARD. Sec.
