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

tions will be permitted to hold the
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. Contributed by

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. , .

Valuable Suggestions Made by Prof.
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
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.
The Secret of Endeavor Success.
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.) Bx
