The death of Speaker Champ Clark, one of the most popular Rep resentatives in Congress, took place last week in Washington after a few weeks illness. Mr. Clark was elected to Congress in 1893 and served con tinuously until 1914. He was twice . elected as Speaker of the House. He was permanent chairman of the Na tional Democratic convention in 1904 and a candidate for Presidential nomination at the Baltimore con vention, leading for twenty-seven ballots. His support of Judge Parker for chairman of the convention lost him the support of Bryan and Wood- row Wilson was nomiftated. Champ Clark was a plain Democrat. He stood between the socialism of Bryan and the special interests represented bv Eastern Democrats. In other words, he was a typical Democrat sincere in principle and big enough ' to convince the leaders of the party that there were no isms and schisms hanging to his coat tails and that his democracy was the pure brand. .His great personality and his broad sym pathies made Champ .Clark a world of friend3. It was one of the disap pointments of his life that he failed at Baltimore. It ia a pity the condi tions were of such a nature last year that a Democrat couldn't be elected President, else Champ Clark's many friends would have made a combined and effective effort for hi3 nomina tion. Ao Biohop Moore stated Champ Clark, along with" Wilson, Roosevelt and others, was one of the big men of his time. , per centage of teachers who get thei training there and remain in the State to teach, otherwise a hundred times more valuable in dollars and cents and in public enterprise for the cities where they have been es tablished. If we are to have a school for teacher training, for the love of something worth while why can't we have a central institution and one only such as the old Peabody in Nashville which has a national repu tation for educational work. President Wilson. Whatever political weakness Pres ident Wilson may have developed, he retires with a great deal of sincere praise from leading writers and thinkers. The Saturday Evening Post says he "Wrote the scriptures of peace." The Paris Temps says: "President Wilson ia an apostle; he believes in principles as one believes in God. He has failed in his noble -effort, as are bound to fail all those who wish to act above human nature as it is constituted." The Radical, Paris, says: History, has rendered Justice to Washington and Lincoln; we do not doubt that it will place Wilson among the best servants of the United States. The work of Wil son wa3 worthy of that of Washing ton and Lincoln." -x Of course all this refers principally to the League of Nations. The con census of opinion on this side of the world is that President Wilson un dertook more than it is possible for one human being to perform. He un dertook this task alone. The out standing defect in tils administration perhaps is the lack of financial econ omy. This was not a sin of commis sion as evidently it very oftenr is with some political leaders. It 3ecms that the schoolteacher was not great enough to overcome all the charac teristics of his profession. Though President of the United States he was still a school teacher in finance. However the embodiments of hu man Intelligence and conscience will be a monument to his statesman ;hip, and the world. will recognize these things more generously as the days go by. -. Gen. T. 0. Morris came up from t)yersburg Saturday after a three Weeks session of Circuit Court. Mr. Morris doesn't see any reason why the Supreme Court should move its chambers every few days to every body's neighborhood. The court, is evidently able to accomplish more with a permanent courtroom where there is access to the records at the Capitol, the State Library, and other practically necessary advantages. Pity representative government has to be burdened with political log roll ing, where the more densely popu lated centers are forever trading for expensive State institutions. The State fairs, State Normals, and Poly technic School are notable examples of this practice. Somebody, we un derstand, the other day offered a bill to deed the Polytechnic and Nor mal .establishments to the cities where they are located. It would be a Godsend. These schools are popu larly referred to as high schools sup ported by the taxpayers of the latate, benefiting the State with) a' small County Register. Wo take pleasure in placing the name of J. J. Noonan before the peo ple as a candidate for the office of County Register of Obion County subject to the action of the Demo cratic party. Mr. Noonan is one of the most widely known men in the county, having lived in the county for twenty-seven years, and needs no recommendation from us. Yet, we feel that in placing his name be fore the people, we can Justly rccom mend him to the people as being an honorable, upright, worthy, christian gentleman and one who is competent and qualified to fill the office asked for.

His church loyalty will bring him to the directorship an enthusiasm that will override all obstacles and difficulties.

Again thanking you one and all for what you have done for us we beg to remain yours very truly, DAVIDSON PRODUCE CO., By W. J. Davidson. 51-lt v. Memory of liar B. Osburn, Once more God has ha need of a beautiful flower and has taken from our home one that was cherished by his father and mother and little W. J. It was so hard to give him up and see him no more here, but it is a pleasure indeed to know where he is and know that we can go to him some day where parting will come no more and where all will be peace and happiness. God will do all things well to them that love nlm. Jesus has taken a beautiful bud Out of our garden of love And borne it away to the city of God, Home of the angels above. Full blooming flowers will not do. Some must be young and ungrown, So the frail buds he is gathering too, Beautiful gems for hl3 throne. Father and mother, weep not or be sad. -Still on the Saviour rely. We shall behold again and be glad, Beautiful flowers on high. Blooming in beauty in Heaven they are. Blooming for you and for me. We'll follow the Lord, though the city be far, Till, our bright blossoms we see. Written by bis mother. Matinee Music Club. The Matinee Music Club met in regular session Saturday afternoon at the home of Mrs. Thad. Lee on East Mill street, an important prelude to the meeting being the election of of ficers. The new administration reads as follows: , Mrs. Thad Lee, President; Miss Willie Belle Mayes, first vice presi dent; Mrs. J. D. Carlton, second vice president; Miss Edith Quinn, sec retary -treasurer; Miss Florence Botts, critic; Miss Mary Aletha Bon ner, press correspondent. The achievement and maintenance of high standards is the greatest stimulus possible to those who follow after, and to the retiring officers of the club much credit and praise be long, because of their unflagging in terest and faithful discharge of offi cial duties. In accepting the club presidency, Mrs. Lee stressed the im portanceof co-operation. The ef forts, however zealous of an individ ual to accomplish the worth-while come to naught without the sympa thetic support of kindred minds. She also urged that progress be the un derlying theme in the symphony of club life. The second period of the meeting was devoted to a delightful study of "Musical America." The lesson was led by Miss Willie Belle Mayes, and thoroughly enjoyed by all present. Though young in the art, America is lifting her soul in song. Her sons and daughters have looked upon the dainty petals of the wild rose, and breathed the rare perfume of the nar cissus. They have smiled at the elf ish sunbeam in the land of the sky blue water, and felt the thrill at tending a dashing mountain stream; they have heard the soft croonings of tho Southern negro and wild tumult from the Indian lodge. With senses alert they have made artistic appro priation from the glories of nature and local coloring of plantation and wigwam, and to-day, our Edward MacDowclls, our Ethelbert Nevins, our Charles W.'Cadmans, our Mary Turner Saltes and Margaret Ruthven Langs are loved and honored where- ever "music swells the breeze."

Wednesday morning, Feb. 23. 1921, this dear little girl answered the summons of the messenger who cometh sooner or later to us all. She was the eldest daughter of S. H. Moore, and wife; was born July 6, 1903. She leaves mother and father, two sisters and numbers of relatives and friends to mourn her loss. We are writing this tribute of love because of sacred ties now severed, of memories tenderly cherished, and hearts touched with sympathy for the bereaved loved ones. - We weep not for this dear child a3 those who have no hope, for altho she has finished her allotted task in the conflict of life and the chapter or her earthly sojourn is closed, her many virtues and her obedience to our Saviour's command shall not go unrecorded. She made a beautiful profession of religion in her home with no one present but her mother. Early in life she Joined the Alamo Baptist Church and was baptized by the pastor, L. J. Crocker. Auvergne- will be greatly missed in Sunday school and church service. She was ever present and a willing worker. "In my Father's house are many mansions; if it were not so,.I would have told you. I go to prepare a place for you7 that where I am there ye may b also." O, let' this com forting assurance come to us, "That if our earthly house of this taberna cle were dissolved, we have a build ing not made with hands, eternal in the heavens." Let us us so live that when our Bummons comes to join those who have eone on before that we can fully realize "There is. a world above, where parting is unknown, a whole eternity of love and blessedness alone. . i "There is no flock however watched and tended, But one dead lamb is thcre There is no fireside, however de fended, : ! But has a vacant chair." Written by one who knew and loved her. ' . " AFTER EVERY MEAL n It appeals to everybody because of the pleasure and benefit it affords.
