Tennessee as speakers, Mrs. W. H, 'Swiggart and v a number of the friends of the cause met at , the Elks Home ,last Tuesday night to discuss the propo sition of fighting- tuberculosis in Obion County, and incidentally the . work of organizing the State. Dr. Turner, of the Lions Club, pre sided and Dr. J. P. Kranz, of Pea body College, executive secretary of me xeuiiuaseu auii-i uucrtuiusia As sociation, whs introduced as the first ... speaker. ,.- - - Dr, Kranz first made a talk at Rey nolds Theatre and at , the Elks; he enlarged upon the theme. la short he stated that Tennessee 1- 1 .3 Oi.tA t . 1 us i uk nccuuu ; ur nmu olulb iu tiio union In the prevalenceof tubercu losis. There Is in Obion County death rate every year of an average of 41 persona from tuberculosis. That means that ten times that many per sons have the disease. Ninety persons out of a hundred hare the tubercular germ, but in many persons the germ does not de velop because the body Is kept san itary and healthy. There ia a con dltion among the masses' however that should have attention, and the employment of county nurses is now th ruin in a niimhpr. nf counties in Tennessee. There Is probably no county anywhere that needs a nurse more than' Obion, and Mrs.-W. H Swiggart, chairman of- the county, Is interested In this ..work. : There is also a movement to or ganlzej tb Stater and to memorialize the -Legislature for a million dollar appropriation for, ..tuberculosis hos pltaW..C,':.': r ,J Tt - There is every reason on earth why we should have these hospitals, but we believe the' Legislature should leave the question to the various cbunties, to, provide the' means for these hospitals. ' The counties should create a tax for" these Institutions. There should be no State bond issue for hospitals. Thd State Is now too heavily bonded and 'the - S,tate credit has been stretched to the point of de- atroylng'the old Democratic party A drive should be made Toi these hospitals ' and the counties should provide a tax for same. It is sug gested that the State be divided, and a hospital located for each half dozen or more counties. A number of speakers for the work of employing a county nurse will be invited here soon to open that drive and we are convinced that it will be practically an easy matter. , That is roally a. more important work. These county nurses can do a world of good. They can visit the schools and (" be ready to answer calls to the homes which are Invaded "with the white plague. They can Inetruct and help in venr way to prevent the spread of the disease. S " . " MrC.

Re peating her record of last year Ten nessee has again successfully invaded the world's greatest livestock show and carried- ayay high' honors.by Dr. J. I. Huggins, of Dandridge, taking the grand championship for the beat Aberdeen-Angus bull with Perinth ian, and B. P. Evans, of Shelbyville, i . ... winning grand .championship on Hampshire boar and sow, Tennessee headed the Southern States for hon ors and big prize money at.this year'i International Livestock Exposition held at Chicago November 27 to De cembor 4. In " addition to these exceedingly high honors, a number of first prizea and other awards were taken by ani mals from the State and will act as a great stimulant to the livestock in dustry in this section.. 'To Dr. Hu gins came the distinction of being the only breeder of Aberdeen-Angus cattle to ever win the International Grand Championship in two succeed lng years with two different bulls when Perinthian, the two-year-old imported bull carried off that honor at 'lie recent show. At the same tii.'o his two-year-old heifer. Black ard Lass of French Broad, won her class &nd was then made reserve champion of the breed for females, Other animals in his show herd took awards. Dr. Huggins' accomplish ments with his splendid French Broad herd have rarely, if ever, been equalled by any breeder in so short a time and have certainly made Ten nessee felt at the great show. Last year Dr. Huggins won the grand championship with his then famous bull, Idolmere, which, it will bo remembered, died from burns re ceived in a railroad wreck while in transit from Chicago to to French Broad Farms-. But with this great loss Dr. Huggins was not to be dis couraged and he at ouce began to ca3t about for a bull to take Idol mere's place at the head of his herd As a result Perinthian, champion of the show rings of Ireland and Scot land, was purchased at a cost of about $30,000 and those who are recognized as Judges consider him a better bull In many respects than Idolmere. - Mr. Evans won grand champion ship' In the Hampshire boar class with Lookout Reminder the Second. A daughter of this great sire, Gwen dolyn Lookout, was the grand cham pion sow. These animals were cham pions of; all the i)ig fairs in Tennes see last fall. Mr. Evans has one of the greatest herds of Hampshire hogs in thisjeountry and Ills winnings at tho International will no doubt stim ulate the growing of purebred hogs in Tennessee ' Lcspedeza Choice, the prize Short horn bull owned by Dr. E.
