WHITE'S CASH MEAT MARKET AND- Having bought the Quality Store, on the corner of Home and College Streets, owned by F. E. Ranck, I began business Sept. 1, 1921, as a cash meat market and grocery store. My intention of a cash market is to make the prices so it will be to your interest as well as mine. While I expect this to be run as nearly cash as possible, but for the convenience of my old friends and customers whom I deliver to, I will allow them to pay for their goods weekly, but in no exceptions will I run an account longer than one week and will give my weekly customers the same advantage of the cash prices I have made. I will appreciate your trade on these terms and assure you that I will sell you as cheap as possible. Give me a trial and see how much you can save by paying cash. V. E. WHITE, Comb.

A spirited controversy between Governor Taylor and the members of the State Funding Board, composed of Treasurer McAlister, Comptroller Thomason and Secretary of State Haston, over the floating of a $2, 000,000 loan to meet temporarily the State's pressing financial obligations ha3 arisen, it was learned last night by the Tennessean. The Governor last night said he would forward a letter to-day td th funding board, requesting that th f.ppeal and reason for the $2,000,000 loan be submitted to him in writing as he was anxious to know more del initely the cause of the Bhortage of funds in the State treasury. He afso intimated that he was surprised that the State was in pressing need of fi nancing. ' His first knowledge that the State needed money at once, he said, came last Friday morning at a meeting of the funding board, when Treasurer McAlister and Comptroller Thomason informed him that the above sum was needed to meet pressing obligations It was stated that the greater part of the money wa3 required for the State Highway Department for road building over the State. The Gov ernor said he would object to the money being spent for this purpose, as he believed that the penal instltu tions and other necessary depart ments should be taken care of first. A close political friend and adviser of the Governor last night said that the chief executive would request a thorough, investigation of highway expenditures and requirements. Gov ernor Taylor, however, declined to discuss the matter, but did say he would refuse to approve the proposed $2,000,000 loan if the money was to be turned over to the highway de partment. Governor Taylor said the funding board had bcqn informed that it could borrow the sum required from East ern capitalists at 7 per cent, but de clared he objected to this proposal LOCALETTES.

For a New Umbrella. Before using a new umbrella inject small portion of vaseline Into the hinge portion of the frame.
