WHY BABY'S FIRST YEAR IS SO IMPORTANT At Rest. The path of life has ended for a noble man, Edward Carlyle Ownby, our kinsman, to mo, from my earliest recollection a brother. The news of his going away was a very great shock, while we knew that his health had been greatly impaired and his giant mind thereby weakened we were unprepared for the sad news of his death. Ed will be missed by ev ery man, woman and child in Union City, for every one was his friend. He was easy of manner, very courte ous, and while so, was kingly in his bearing. He had the soul of a poet, his verses were ever ready to help the bowed and broken hearted. He was a musician of rare and excep tional genius, but like Stephens Col lins Foster, "America's premier bal ladist," who was the author of one hundred and seventy songs, includ ing 'The Old Folks at Home,' where he tells us of the little Suanee River here in our sunshine land where millions of copies of his songs were sold, his life was a tragic one. He has found rest from his labors, and methinks when the day of resurrec tion dawns no soul will be purer or more worthy to "partake of the tree life and enter in through the gates into the city" than Edward Carlyle Ownby. B. E. Q. It appears that the smaller fellows who take part in the concert of na tions will be permitted to hold the music. Have you ever thought why so much attention is given -to baby's first year cf life? The reason is be cause the baby's body develops faster during those first twelve months than at any other time of its life. Just compare the tiny new life, help less, pink, soft and sleepy, which is put into the mother's arms during the first hours after birth, with the sturdy, crowing, laughing child who greets its first birthday. They scarce- the same at all, end this is method of development; it is so wonderful, so delicate, and yet so rapid that any interference with Nature's laws often means the loss of the precious little life itself. Sleep is baby'3 best time for devel oping and growing, and so it needs cheerful attention given to Its sleep ing places, and every sacrifice should. be made to have its small bed sani tary, comfortable, and placed in a well ventilated place both day and night. A separate bed for baby is a NECESSITY even if it is home made from a packing box. Evory baby should sleep alone. Many babies are smothered by older persons lying on them during the night, and it is particularly wrong for the baby to sleep with the mother and thus by smell and touch be" kept awake often by the sugges tion of its feeding time. Of course, the baby must be made comfortable in every way; kept dry, properly fed, its clothing loose but warm enough in winter and cool enough in sum mer, and then it should be put in its crib alone in a quiet room, and left to go to sleep. Rocking or jolting it in any way is wrong, and no baby will want this way of being "put to sleep" if the practice is' not begun. In fact, the normal healthy baby will go to sleep quite naturally if It is trained to do so. For the first few weeks, the baby should sleep - eighteen or twenty hours out of the twenty-four; from one month to one year it should sleep at least sixteen hours, and, of course, this means a regular day time nap. Thi3 nap should NEVER bo interfered with, and a baby should never be "kept awake' or wakened up for any purpose whatever. Often it is well for the' baby to sleep out of doors after he is a month old, but he should always be protected from flies or MOSQUITOES by a netting placed over his crib, and he should be shielded, too, from any sudden drop in temperature. Too much attention cannot be given to the baby's sleep; it ranks in importance with food as a means of preserving baby's health and even its life.

RENOVATION OF APPLE ORCHARD GOVERNMENT TO HELP FARMERS High Class Land Clearing Explosive to be Furnished. Arrangements have been com pleted by the Bureau of Public Roads, United States Department of Agriculture with the Division of extension, University of Tenncs see, whereby farmers of the State will be furnished picric acid, a high class explosive surplus from war time at the cost of cartridging, box ing and shipping. The total cost to the farmer for picric acid per pound laid down in Tennessee will probably not exceed 13 cents per pound. This is less than one half the present cost of agriculture dynamite. At this price the farmer will be able to clear the land at one third the Usual cost of clearing land of stumps. AH orders will bo procured thru the county agricultural agent or thru farmers or business men ap pointed by him, therefore in order to secure this explosive it will be nec essary for the person wanting it to place his order with the local county agent or men appointed by him so that co-operating, the people of the county may have sufficient orders for carload. .No less than minimum carload lots will be shipped. Persons living in counties where no agent is employed may place their orders with the county agent in the adjoining counties, and thus secure the picric acid in his shipment, provided there is a carload order made up in his county. No person will be allowed over 1,000 pounds. Parties ordering picric acid should accompany the order with a check covering the cost of the amount or dered at the rate designated by the agent. The check should be made payable to the bank designated by the agent and the order sent to the counly agent. , . A Kansas man is reported to be the father of thirty-two children. It is not known whether he will apply for admission to the League of Na tions or just let America represent him for the present. Tho king can do no wrong, If the other fellow holds tour aces. Valuable Suggestions Made by Prof. Watson. According to Prof. O. M. Watson, of the University of Tennessee, Ten nessee is particularly fortunately situated for making money in the production of apples. He points out that the apple growers of the north west who are making money out of apples and who supply the great bulk of apples offered on the mar kets of the country are more than 3,000 miles from the great markets while Tennessee growers are within 500 -miles of them. In view of this Tennessee apple growers ought to be able to make a good profit on savings in freight alone, he says. He empha sizes the fact that just as good apples as can be produced in any section of thjf country can be grown in practi cably every county in the State. Prof, Watson does not advocate the launch ing of big exclusive orchard projects but says that instead every farm should have a few acres in apples and other fruit trees as a side line and that good money can be made in this way provided the trees are properly cared for by pruning and spraying In the renovation of the old or chard Prof. Watson says that the first thing to do is to clean it up. Not by letting cattle and other livestock pasture in It but by cuting down the briars, weeds and dead limbs and burning them, thereby getting rid of Insects and diseases which harbor in such places. He advises against us ing the orchard for pasturing live stock as they damage the trees more than they do good by cleaning it up. The next step in making over the old orchard is the pruning out of part of the top in order to let light in to the inner branches of the trees. Plenty of light in all parts of the tree is necessary for the growing of fruits as sunlight kills disease which at tacks the branches and fruits. The next and one of the most Important steps is spraying. San Jose scale can only be controlled in this way and is one of the worst orchard pests known. For further information on spray ing the orchard write the Division of Extension for Publication 96, "Spray the Orchard." It giveo a spray schedule in addition to many other valuable pointers. C. E. CLIPPINGS. The Secret of Endeavor Success. Turnage-Henry. Wednesday evening at the resi dence of Mr. and Mrs. L. W. Everett Mr. J. C. Henry and Mrs. Hester Tur nage were united in marriage. Rev. J. H. Bass performed the rites which united the happy couple. Both of the contracting parties are well known here and have many friends who wish them much happiness. Obion County Enterprise. If we were asked to tell the secret of Endeavor Success, me answer would be that it has abolished the old passive Christianity where one sr.t and sang one's soul away In ev erlasting bliss, and substituted a practical and active Christianity. It has put hte young to work for the church and the religion which It preaches, recognizing that faith without works is dead, and never more lethal than when it attempts to curb the youthful desire for ac tion, for achievement, or even for evangelization. From the Lowell (Mass.) Leader. It is hoped that Christian Endeav or's slogan of a "warless world by 1923" may become true. It is rath er too good a wish to be realized, however. The Portland (Me.)
