RYE FOR GOVERNOR OF TENN Democrats, regular and other wise, of some fifteen or twenty counties have called upon Attor ney General Rye, of Pans, to make the race for the Democrat ic nomination for governor, Henry county Democrats, in kin formal convention assembled, also passed resolutions soliciting him to enter the contest pledg ing him the support of his home county. After considering the matter for some weeks Gen. Rye has concluded to make the race and Tuesday night issued the following cord: 1 feel that the time has come when those of my friends who believe that I can serve my state and party by entering the con test for the democratic nomina tion for governor should have some expression from me as to my intentions in regard to the matter. "I am deeply grateful for the honor done me by the different counties in instructing for me and calling upon me to enter the contest, and while I do not be lieve that my candidacy is nec essary for the salvation of the party or the interest of the state, still I feel that I owe it to those who have thus honored me to say that I have decided to stand for the nomination, assum ing that the representatives of the party in contention assem bled on the 17 of May will adopt a platform in keeping with the . declaration of the state execu tive committee for the mainten ance of the present election laws, fairly administered, the temper ance laws, and declare for their rigid enforcement and the en actment of other laws that may be necessary for their enforce ment. However, I would not fav or gmng to the governor the power to remove officials elected by. the people, as I do not deem such a law necessary for the enforcement of said laws. "With such a platform, should be triad to accept the nomination at the hands of my Darty and do all in my power to bring harmony out of discord and restore Tennessee to her proper place in theglaxyof dem ocratic states where she justly belongs. "If the party can harmonize I on the questions above referred to, I am sure that a reunited de mocracy will draft a platform which will declare for other needed legislation that will be enacted into laws tending to the further development, advance ment and prosperity of the state."

Campaign Thunder. (Haywood New Era.) Gov. Hooper has offered a re ward of $50.00 for the convic tion of any "soft drink" dealer selling liquor, but specifically states in his proclamation that no reward will be paid for the conviction of "bootleggers." If our great and good gover nor was sincere in his advocacy of the enforcement of the prohi bition laws he would have inclu ded the bootlegger in his procla mation, for this species of the devil infests the rural districts and flourishes like a green bay tree, peddles his poisonous wares to the tender child as well as the full-grown man, and those who taste of them destroy both mind and body. The truth of the matter is the governor is only doing a little advertising for his coming cam paign and does not want "boot legging" stopped, fearful that if it is he might be defeated for re-election. On our Club Plan you can pay for a fine watch so easy that, when you get through, you will ; feel as though some one had ' convention of Wednesday was made you a present of it 17c but a shadow of former indepen a day is all we ask.

Washington, April 23-Nelson O'Shaughnessy, the American charge at Mexico City, has been handed his passports by Gen Huerta and is preparing to leave Mexico City.

Conventions of independents that made up in enthusiasm , and in unity of purpose what they manifestly lacked in numbers met in Nashville Wednesday at noon and Wednesday afternoon and endorsed Judge Sam C. Williams of East Tennessee for supreme court judge and nomi nated B. W. Hooper for gover nor and W. G. Sadjer of Monter ey for railroad commissioner. A platform was adopted by the gu bernatorial convention only.

Many suggestions were sent in but tomatoes seemed to be the most plausable crop for the girls to raise. In 1910 Dr. Seaman D. Knapp, whose fame for developing farm ing resources is universal, or ganized the Girls' Canning and Poultry Club with an employ ment of three hundred and twenty-five girls. Each girl was to raise a tenth-acre plot of to matoes and other vegetables, canning them in tin or glass cans for home use and the market, An accurate account of all work done was kept by each girl and sent in to Washington, D. C, as her report. Prizes were given for efficiency. Three thousand girls from eigni ainerent scates were en rolled in 1911 and much interest was manifested in this work dur ing that time. In 1912 twenty-three thousand girls of twelve states were made bona fide members, Tennessee being among the dozen. Miss Viola Lewis, of Arkansas, won the prize of a trip to Washing ton. She also received the first diploma ever given to a girl by the Secretary of Agriculture. Miss Sylvia Richmond won the highest honors in Tennessee. She canned one thousand, one hundred and seventy-four from her plot making $153.62 from a single tenth-acre plot.

PECK PLEADS FOR LIFE ON In his talks to farmers this week Commissioner of Agricul ture Peck deplores the fact that many country girls are turning their backs on the farm and mor alizes on the dangers besetting such girls in the big c i t i e s . Among other things he says: "What are we going to do about it? The boys and erirls are going away from the farm. No doubt about that. Everywhere the young folks are slipping away. The problem is, 'Is it a good thing to try to keep the young people? If so, how shall it be done?' "In the first place, it is worth while to do all we can to keep the young folks on the farm. We do need them and we need them badly. "The men and women of to morrow are going to be made out of the life and the influence and the thought and the love of the young folks of to-day. If our dear ones go someone will come in their places. These will not be just like our own boys and girls. They canont be. It takes a generation or two to build up a good strong, true man hood and womanhood. "So it will pay to make the life of the farm just as helpful and just as attractive as we pos sibly can. How can it be done? By thinking more of the person al appearence of everybody about the "farm. The boys and girls must have things to wear that will make them feel just as well clothed as anybody downtown. Then, too, there ought to be good books, papers and music in every farm home. It is better to put some of the money into these things and keep the boys and girls with us than to lay it away in the bank and lose the ones we love so well. There ought to be nice attractive rooms for ev erybody. The boys and the girls love pretty little things that do not cost much, but which do help to make the room attractive. "Then, again, we must not for get the heart-life. Do you know there is positively no better place in all the world in which to grow a big all-round manhood than right on the farm. Let's all get this well fixed in our minds. It means real happiness, happiness now and happiness by and by. And young folks let all your en ergies be bent upon building up a clean, pure, wholesome life. Love the old farm, love every thing about, it, love the men and women about you. do all you can to make their lives good and hap py, love the old folks in the home love your country and love God! These are the things which will make you really successful; you can do this right where you are. Some day you will see it, too." FOR DEATH OF BROTHER Fred C.
