Congressman to Serve the People and Not Himself. - Eighteen Years, They, Say, is Long Enough-for any One Man to Hold Public Office. Ripley, Tenn. .May 3. Some of Mr. W. W. Craig's friends mei Mon day night and perfected an organiza tion which will spread out all over Lauderdale County in the near fu ture . and similar organizations are being rapidly built up throughout the entire Ninth District all intent upon doing the things necessary to further his candidacy for Congress. Mr, Craig is meeting with much en couragement wherever he goes. The general trend of the times is toward Rare Tire Value for Owners Ford Cars We sought a fabric tire larger than average obtain greater air space, thus guaranteeing ful comfort and longer life, We took on Mason Maxi-Miles, believing distinctive tire would fully meet the insistent mand of customers for a tire beyond question to value. We know now how happy was our choice. of drivers of light cars claim Maxi-Mile to be the most satisfactory, high quality tire they have ever known, The Ford factory at Detroit now use Mason Maxi Mile as standard equipment on cars and trucks That indicates exceptional tire value.

But for a long term in of fice Mr. Wilson's peace treaty would never have been defeated. Senator Lodge has been in office so long that he had gained a strangle hold. It isn't best that one man should be in office for so long custom prevents our President from serving over 8 years even old Joe Cannon is retir ing voluntarily because he knows it's best for his district. If 18 years in office and $130,000.00 has just now fitted Mr. Garrett to lead, then turn him out now for he has spent these many years and much money oppos ing government aid for good roads downvhere while the down-easterners and far westerners have been build ing them with our money. The peo ple want a Congressman who will seek beneficial aid for the Ninth Con gressional. District and not so much political preferment for himself. Hero-worshipers have about all died out in this section. Service is the order of the day. What have you done for your dis trict?" is the question for Mr. Gar rett to answer and not "Look at ME." This is an age of unselfish service. The real men in Congress as well as in the world at large are striving hard to see what they can do for some one else. There are men in of fice and out of office in the United States who have done many bene ficial things for the nation and their respective communities within the last 18 years. A progressive thought put into words, a campaign for so cial, agricultural or financial better ment, an unselfish act of any kind do "you find Mr. Garrett doing a thing of this kind? Suppose he was inclined to serve in a similar manner as many men-of-service have done, suppose he spent his spare time (an investigation will show that he has plenty of it) doing something for his district, then he might claim politi cal preferment. Mr. Pierce served 14 years and Mr. Garrett asked the people to turn him out because he had been there so long. They did it and Mr. Garrett has spent all the time since 18 years playing poli tics to keep himself there. What's the use for the ambitious young man to educate himself and strive to rise to a higher plane, if you are going to keep one man in the same office all his life. Eighteen years is enough for any one man the people are de termined to give some one else a chance. Vote for W. W. Craig for Congress. Adv. WOODLAND ITEMS. Farmers are quite busy planting corn.

Cautiously he counted his change. "Here!" he said, sharply, "Take back this plugged nickel and give me a good one!" They couldn't Mr. Brown walked proudly out fool old Brown. But old Brown had fooled himself. Brown's day was heavy and dull. He lacked "pep." There was a mid-afternoon drowsy spell wneri he needed to be awake the direct and natural result of heavy, starchy breakfasts and lunches, taken on faith and without question as to value just because the food looked and tasted like food. Thousands of shrewd business men who count their change, take their food for granted. That's what builds up the sani tarium business, and puts the tired "all -done" feeling into the mid afternoon of a business day.
