At t meeting of the Lions Club last Tuesday Messrs. Claude Walker, Bob Isler and Percy Jones, of Hick man, were present as guests of. the club in the interest of anextension of service on the N C. & St. L. Rail way, from Nashville to Unipn City and Hickman. Before the war the night; train on the Hickman branch of the N., C & St. L. Ry. was discontinued. Re peated efforts sfnee the war nave been made to restore the service without reeults. Mr. Clem Burdick is chairman of a committee who have been working thru the Lions Club to reach the of ficials of the road to get a bearing on this matter. The officials have always been kindly disposed and thoroly courteous, but declined for the reason that the service requested could not be granted on the grounds that it would entail financial loss to the road. At the meeting last Tuesday it was proposed to organize all of the towns along the oad west of Hollow Rock affected by this service and with a systematic effort seek out and ' assemble proof of existing and pros pective business that may be devel Atwood Circuit, W.'b.

It was while Dr. Hughes was en gaged some years ago in his late work that he heard the call from the a serv ant of the Lord. The Baptl3t Church was crowded last Sunday morning to hear the evangelist, a former citizen and well known by his many friend's as Ship ter Hughes. The subject of the text was "The Call of tho Age3." Dr. Hughes was introduced by the pastor, scev. Mc Gehee, and he proceeded with a per sonal reference to the effect that he left Union City a servant or the devil and returns a servant of God. He spoke of his conviction and conver sion without reserve saying that God had always been with him and that many of the temptations with which he was beset had boon entirely re moved. ' Beginning with the text, Dr, Hughes quoted that Samuel had mis understood the call of God for the call of El, and that Samuel appeared before Eli three times before he real ized that God had called him. And after he had received God's message Samuel was afraid to tell his friend, Eli, because Eli had two sons who had defiled the temple of God. But he did take God's message to Eli, and the motive behind this act was in spired by God andnot by man. The sin of the world is the call of the world and not the call of God. Men are not saved until they put aside the call of men and listen to the call of God. The churches are filled with the creeds of men and the denominatlon- lism of creed and not of Christ is the curce of the age. Not that we do not need the churches, God knows that we need them moro than we ever did, but we need Christ before we do creed. There lo only one salvation and that is faith in God thru the blood which flowed from the side of Jesus on the Cross. The great Dwight L. Moody heard the call of God and he carried the message of simple faith to the thou sands of unsaved who fell on their knees and worshiped God. Billy Sunday moved thousands with tho message that he carried from God. i ' Gipsy Smith paused between the call of the will and the call of God and the call of God prevailed with the work of evangelism. The religion ; of Chris , Is neither a religion of culture n creed. It is not the religion of" but the religion of God. , f , Dr. Hughes spoke ( ufritual force and feeling an rmon created a profound f : fk.

Austin Peay Announces. 'To the Democrats of Tennessee. I am constantly being asked if I will be a candidate for Governor next year. If my personal interest and Inclination were solely consulted, might not undergo the effort and sacrifice of another gubernatorial contest. The glare and notoriety which are inseparable from the gov ernorship do not attract me, and for the jsham and bluster of politics I have a genuine dislike. 'Other considerations have con trolled my decision. For the dignity and responsibility of the State's first office, my respect is profound and for the opportunity which it opens for earnest 'and high minded service, covet it. The call to its citizenship from State and nation is for contri bution to government in patriotic and unselfish thought and labor, that its frightful cost may be reduced and junior san,ty and economy prevail in all its anairs. My views on tne matters or first consideration in this State are known to the people, and are un changed since I last expressed them In the belief that in the event of my election, I can render a construc tive benefit to the State, in reorder ing its fiscal interests and in such readjustment of the tax burden as will lift its weight fiom our produc ing class, and further, in purging the State ofe the mischievous politic ,which has too long beset it, I havj determined to again seek the Dem ocratic nomination for Governor. "In due time, as in my last contest, I will take my candidacy to the peo ple. The primary does not occur un til next August, and it is now too early for any detailed statement. My only purpose is to set at rest my course in view of the repeated in quiries on the subject." f W. H. Ice all the year.. Call 150. J. L. Ranson, Jr., of Harpole- Walker's has a cedar chest.'
