As there is'nt a sign of a name anyvyb'Te about this document, it maKibe presumed that it eminates from a republican source. Comment is unneccessary but it is well enough for the true and tried democracy of this county to know that there are "snakes iij the grass", that are ashamed to fight in the open, but true to nature are seeking in every way possible, to cut down Henry County's democratic majority.

Henry L i ... ' The Puryear Graded School opened Tuesday morning with a most flattering outlook for a suc cessful year's work. Nearly 200 students, many from other sec tions, were enrolled. The exercises were opened with an able address by Louis Spencer Daniel, Secretary of the Paris Business Men's Club, followed by an appropriate address from County Superintendent Joe Rou ton, Prof. R. H. White, Esq. John G. Morris, N. L. Valentine and others. Splendid talks were made by Principal J. C Sullivan and his excellent assistants, Misses Sallie Strong and Anna B. Hill. A large audience "was present at the opening exercises com posed of patrons and visitors and the work started off amid the intense interest and enthusiasm.

Compton we gather the startling informatio that during his term of office, s years, the County Jail has b occupied by 793 unfortunate 1AW' breakers. Of this number a majority of them were negroes, and the crimes for which they were' incarcerated rangefrom train-hopping to cold-blooded murder. Ex-Sheriff Compton took charge of the county baatile on the first Monday in Sept, 1908, shortly after the completion of the new jail. But in spite of his constant watchfulness and vigilance there have been a num ber of deliveries during his term for none of which can he be held responsible. He has made a dutiful, obliging and effi cient sheriff, who has made rather than lost friends while in the performance of his duties There is nothing within the gift of the people of Henry coun ty too good for Bob Compton, and they will be only to glad to honor him with almost any of hce for which he might ask in the future.

OUR GOOD EX-SHERIFF County's Qnly Democratic Newspaper; OPENING SPEECH OF GENERAL RYE STRUCK TERROR TO REPUBLICANS Gen. Rye, democratic nominee for Governor of Tennessee, has set forth on his speaking tour of the State. In view of what he stands for, of his ability, char acter, patriotism and statesman ship, as the one peculiarly equipped man of the hour to save Tennessee from an odious conspiarcy of political traitors and self seekers, the people of the State should make his itiner ary a triumphal march through the State. Tennessee needs less politics and more business: Rye will furnish the relief. Tennessee needs a rest from . the petty bickerings, the ugly factionalism and the self seeking grouches; Rye alone can assure so happy a culmination of the rabid disor ders that for four years have affected the State. His reception at his old home town, Camden, last Ihursday, was a splendid ovation. Then and there his old associates, those who had known him from birth or early boyhood, gave him an earnest expression oi tneir approval and confidence. He is prophet honored amongst his own people, The speech was the master ef fort of a wise statesman and a polished orator. He sounded no AT M. E.

The spirit of confidence and optimism was breathed from every utter ance and the message he gave out was one of good cheer to a long suffering people. He de-' clared that he had always fav ored and now favors with all his heart prohibition and law en forcement. He - subscribes to every law on tho statute books appertaining to both and pledged his administration's best efforts thereto. . Mr. Ry explained thoroughly and convincingly his attitude on prohibition in the past. He had spoken and voted for the pro posed amendment to the Consti tution in 1887 and had never weakened in his belief in prohi bition's final triumph. His ad vocacy had not, however, led him to desert in any election the democratic party or its can didates. He believed the issue could best be settled through that party which had bravely met and satisfactorily settled every political issue since the war. He voted against Hooper be cause the latter was a republican soldier of fortune whom he did not believe to be necessary to the State's welfare. He voted for Bob Taylor and for Benton McMillin and, believes today that HOW THEY STAND IN THE PRINCESS CONTEST flowing is the standing of elates in the Princess Thea- Popularity Contest up to mesday, Sept. 23: Johnnie Alexander 9020 e Nelson.... 7365 Mytle Love 7040 ThV-lma Hancock 4505 Margueret Maxwell 2430 Dolly Crutchfield 2365 Mildred White... 1920 Louise Scates 1855 Lucile Powell ... . 1710 Ann Balch 1540 Ruth Lansdell 1515 Sylvia White 1420 Minnie Jenkins 1375 Ruth Looney..... 1335 Martha Sweeney 1300 Lillian Smith 1165 Edna Spicer 1150 Grace Lewis 1100 Lorene Lansdell 1085 Mable Moody 1080 Flora P'Pool.. . 1070 Mary Lewis. . 1020 Contest closes Thursday night, Oct. 1st.

Gen. Rye's remarks were to the point and earnestly so.V His discussion of other matters, good roads, schools, pensions for old soldiers, labor conditions and de mands, the State's debt, ex travagance, etc., was forceful and convincing. Especially elo quent was his peroration with its pleas for the endorsement of President Wilson and for peace in Tennessee. The spsech established the certainty that the democrats of the State had been peculiarly fortunate in their selection of a standard bearer. He has aroused and enthused his followers and there seems no doubt that he will poll a heavy vote in Novem ber. Let the people do their part in the manifestation of ap proval at the various speaking places. Let them turn out in large numbers and give strength to his courage and cheer to his efforts.

Hogg, one of the best known salesmen in Tennes see and a leader in all the organ izations of the men on the road, passed through Camden last Sun day night. Mr. Hogg is a strong supporter of Tom C. ' Rye. He declared that more than three fourths of the traveling men were for Mr. Rye, campaigning for him and spending their money in the interest of his race. " His vigorous statement supports the assertion of W. M. Kincannon, one of our .Camden salesmen, who spoke recently before the Rye club here. The influence and support of these traveling salesmen, traversing every por tion of Tennessee, indicates that Tom Rye is going to win this campaign. Mr. Hogg s&d that he was in East Tennessee last week when he noticed the win dow of a store in a small town decorated with Tom Rye's, pict ure and wreathes of ryestraw. "This merchant did not handle anything in my line," Mr. Hogg related, "but I went in and told him I wanted to shake his hand. We are friends of Tom Rye and we are observant of the courte sies shown to him." Camden Citizen. T I In last Monday's election the city of Paducah voted wet by the staggering majority of 818.

A hard fight was put up by the anti-saloon people, but John Barleycorn outvoted them. The city of Owensboro also went wet by 544 votes. Hopkinsville and Christian county voted wet by a majority of 585.
