FITZHUGH SPEAKS IN UNION CITY Reception Last Thursday Night at Reynolds Theatre. S - ' Capt. G. T. Fitzhugh, of Memphis, " . Democratic candidate for the United ( States Senate, spoke last Thursday " night at 'Reynolds Theatre. On the stage were a number of the friends of Captain Fitzhugh, including Judge Swiggart, Dr. A. P. Warterfleld, W M. Miles, H. O. Head, Jr. Capt. Fitzhugh was introduced by Mr. Miles in a very complimentary manne? about the Memphian and his home and professional life, and about the high character of his citizenship and. associations. It was probably the first speech made In Union City by Mr. Fitzhugh. He was greeted by a very large and a very much interested audience,' one of the largest and best of the cam paign. Capt .Fitzhugh is not only a ma ture scholar but a fine advocate, and his speech was more like that of a counselor than a politician. He dwelt upon the record of his oppo- ' nent, Mr. McKellar, with the force of conviction, but with due regard for the ethics of political argument. . Capt. Fitzhugh's candidacy Is based upon the premise that the leg islative branch of the Government is falling into the hands of the oppor tunist; that statesmanship and dem ocracy are going into decay. He fa- ' vors a return to the principles of the fathers who framed the bill of rights andthe democracy of Jeffer son, the author of the Declaration of Independence. Capt. Fitzhugh proposes a reduc tion of government activities, those especially which are the fruits of centralization. He opposes the so cialistic Ideas of Federalizing the schools, the various agricultural, in dustrial and commercial interests He believes the people are able to take care of themselves and their community interests with local -gov ernment, and with much less expense and trouble. The speaker declared emphatically that we have too much government .too much public service too many 'public servants and employees too v many public burdens too much pub lic debt and with it all too much taxes bearing too heavily all the time , upon the agricultural classes. Said Capt. Fitzhugh, the national structure cannot long -stand the in creasing strain of the conditions now existing in our government. Capt. Fitzhugh opposes many of the things Senator McKellar en dorses. He opposes adjusted compen sation to soldiers who are. not dis abled. He opposes strenuously the agitation to change the constitution al method of selecting members of the United States Supreme Court. He opposes centralization in all its bear ings and he cannot tolerate social ism. In other words, Capt. Fitzhugh wants the Government to return to simplicity and economy by scrupu lously observing the principles of State sovereignty and carefully avoiding all the untried and doubtful means of promoting the public interests. ture, "At the End of the World," and who is regarded as one of the most popular leading Juvenile actors, is see as Phil Long.

Craig, Democratic can didate for Congress from the Ninth Congressional District, spoke in Un ion Citjf last Saturday evening at the courthouse. The audience was not large but very attentive. Mr. Craig spoke for some time un dertaking to make the issue of long tenure of office and a neglect of local interests by the present member, Mr. Garrett. , The speaker Also commented upon the statement that Mr. Garrett is claiming office upon the grounds that hi& position and services to the party and the Government are essential, and that Republican leaders who stand in the same position are not be ing endorsed by their constituents. Mr. Craig says that no man's services in Congress are absolutely necessary. His entire speech was along the lines that no man should monopolize pub lic honors but that the aspirations of other men who have prepared them selves for public life should be rec ognized.

Ince's enthralling transcript of life, which will, be the feature attraction at Reynolds Theatre on Monday and Tuesday, July 24, 25. The picture demonstrates clearly that romance, as rich' and thrilling as sung by the minstrels of old, is found abundantly in everyday hap penings of American life. The play is a mental stimulant, a 'succession of powerful situations, interpreted by a brilliant cast of highly talented and universa' popular screen play ers. jJ The role of Judith Beresford, de voted "Woman" of the play, is In terpreted by Florence Vidor, who has fully grasped the dramatic spirit of the story, and gives to its expression the best that is in her. Her charac terization is powerful and worthy in every respect of the great and imnior tal theme. There is also a star supporting cast, Madge Bellamy, Lloyd Hughes, Theodore Roberts, Tully Marshall, Charles Meredith and others. Hay fever is being cured by in jecting into the" blood of the patient an extract made from the pollen of the flower causing the disease. As yet, the process is not given out to the medical world, but it soon will be. And thousands of sufferers may find relief from the annoying trouble. Dr. Joe B. Hibbits, Jr., a young Tennessean, who has for several years been doing research work in the matter of the curing of hay fever, With eminent physicians at Johns Hopkins University, is in the city and tells about the accomplishments of science along that line so far. He spoke before the Kiwanis Clubl Friday noon. "The results of our test3 and series of cases have not been pub lished for the scientific world because we did not want that to happen which has nevertheless unfortunate ly happened," he said. "We have found the treatment to be successful, inclining every case coming to the offlcevith 'hay fever' symptoms or allied conditions, in 80 to 85 per cent. In very severe cases of long duration, the time for treat ment, has necessarily been longer.! For instance, it was found that rela tively 40 per cent, were relieved of the more severe symptoms by the first year's treatment, some 65 or 70 per cent the second year and about 85 per cent of the third offer no reason for lack of response. During the last few years we have developed our treatment, even further, so that the percentage of failures will probably be much lower. C. P. Christian Endeavor.

"The treatment consists of repeat ed subcutaneous injections of an ex tract of the pollen found to cause the symptoms. The fall type of 'hay fe ver' is caused by the pollen of rag weed and golden rod. Rag weed Is the more constant offender, probably responsible, at least partly, in 95 per cent or true -nay rever cases. This is due to the fact that the pollen of this plant is extremely light and floats in the air for many miles and as the result the person sensitive Is repeatedly subjected to minute inoc ulation when breathing the pollen charged air. Flowers of brilliant color and with odors that attract in sects, depend upon the Insects so at tracted to transport their pollen, which is relatively heavy as com pared with rag weed and does not float In the air for any distance, con-!
