Post master Wills office is in receopt ot a bundle of documents from Senator Reed Smoot, which Is occasioning some worry. Pursuant to resolu tion adopted by the United States senate March 3, 1911, authorizing the printing of a new edition of the bio graphical congressional directory, re ?'sed and corrected up to the sixty second congress, the department has forwarded blanks which the postmas ter of Nashville is to fill in with: "Middle name Living or dead? of birth?" etc. ad. infinitum. The on ly question omitted from the list seemingly is "color of eyes." Postmaster Wills is absent and As sistant Postmaster J. T. Lattin and Miss Addie Vester, secretary to MaJ. Wills are considering turning over the documents to the Tennessee His torical Society or Robert Qnarles, keeper of state archives. The inqui ries concern members of the Tifth congress up to members of the forty fifth congress, and many inquries are made concerning the life of James K. Polk, president from 1845-1849. This envelope wos forwarded to Mrs. M. M Gardner, of Nashville, who is a great granddaughter of President Polk. As near as could be determined the records of the government, which were submitted to Mrs. Gardner and Mrs. Howell tire correct and the ques tions concerning William H. Polk, a brothel of President James K. Polk, could not be answered. John J. Ver trees was called in by Mrs. Gardner and the examinations of the record was complete but scant knowledge of the brother was disclosed. The other members of the senate and house inquired of and the nature of the information desired follows: Ephraim H. Foster, senator from state 1838-9, congress, place of birth iLd middle name.

BIG PROFIT IN IRISHPOTATOES HEAVY YIELDS MADE BY INGRAM BROTHERS ON THEIR FARMS AT CULLEOKA. That Maury county is the land of opportunity was again demonstrated the past season by the ' record made by Joe and Charles Ingram in grow ing potatoes on their farm near Cul ieoka. Recently the Messrs. . Ingram disposed o" their second crop of pota toes of last fall and the returns were $1,259. This was mad'e on less than fifty acres of- land. Messrs. Ingram estimate that, the cost of producing and harvesting "the crop was about 1,000 which would show a net profit of $2,200 on fifty acres or more than forty dollars an acre. This makes even $100 an acre land seem nighty cheap. This land was all planted in wheat and will be sewn back to clover this spring and will be none the worse for the heavy vields. CENSNS BUREAU CLERKS DR0PPFD CONGRESS REFUSES TO MAKE EXTRA APPROPRIATION FOR ADDITIONAL HELP. WASHINGTON, Mar. 1. The last cf the temporary clerks employed by the census bureau to compile the 1 910 returns will go out of the govern ment service tonight. There are 281 temporary clerks still on the-pay loll, JS states and the District of Colum bia being represented. Congress re fused to make the appropriation ask ed for by Director Durand to keep the clerks at the bureau until the census work could be completed. Tho director says there will be clkiht delays in one or two census di visions as the result of the cutting out of the extra force, but he does not "link they will be serious. Strenu ous, efforts to have some of the dis missed clerks transferred to the reg ular employe list have been unsuc cessful. RICHES0N WON'T LIVETILL MAY BOSTON.. Mar. 1. Clarence V. T.

In the case of George Shelton and Jv-hn Bailey, charged with the mur ier of Ben Pettigrew, colored, and the latter 's son and daughter, on Dec. 1, 1911, the jury returned a verdict this, morning pronouncing the de fondants guilty of murder in the first degree. A motion for a new trial will bo entered, and argument heard on it today. It is confidently expected that the motion will be overruled and that the uefecdants will be sentenced to be hanged, in which event an ap peal will be taken to the supreme court Each cf the defendants was tried on only one of the three indict ments returned against him, that charging him with the murder of Pearl Pettigrew, the murder of whom was especially atrocious, the girl hav ing been shot as she was running away from her assailants. The at torneys ' asked the jury to convict them of murder in the first degree with mitigating circumstances, so that it might be optional with the .judge whether he sentenced then to bo hanged or to life imprisonment, had th jury complied with the request .ir-d 'e pefeniauts sentenced .o life if.nmeiu no ar-peal would have n t .leii in the case. Trera has teen a large crowd each day during the trial and tho court houee'dli not hold more than one- the people who desired to hear the case. I TWO MEN CONSTITUTE WHOLE THING IN THE COUNTY OF .

Who is the republican party of the South? office holders, office seekers and their hangers on. What do they know about the doctrines or policy of their own party? They spell their loyalty to the party with one word "Pie." How many can tell you the difference .between "stand-pat" and "progres sive" republican? They have no ; fought no policy of their own.

How many counties in this fcfate write their own platforms and resolu tions? How many are written by tae bosses at Nashville and Chatta nooga and sent to the other counties? i don't believe that there are ten counties in the state in which these office holders predominate that are capable of writing a decent or intel ligent set of resolutions outside, "Re aolved, That we the office holders, re from the bosses, we will endorse any body who will give us jobs." They boast about eliminating' the negro. This has only changed the complex ion of the delegates but lowered the standard of the party, for as they are only a few now now they can carry out. their dirty plans of deceit, fraud, lying or anything else that's unfair to control, and when they can't con trol they bolt and go to their bosses who always recognize them, right or Wrong. I have a letter from the civil cervice commission asking about ac tivity of the federal office holders here, and I answered that as the re publican party in this state was the federal office holders and -to not al low them to participate in the con ventions would mean that we could not have any meetings.

In the period under review mills In the rest of the country consumed 61,916, 938 bales of the commercial crops and southern mills 37,532,673 bales. But whereas jn 1880 the 179,000 bales eonsuin ed by southern mills were but a little more than 10 per cent of the Americal consumption of cotton, in 1911 southern mills used 54.2 per cent of the American consumption, moan while having used in three other years more cotton than the mills of the rest of the country. It is not surprising that such achievements have been recorded in an addMIon of $18,323,000,000 to the estimated true value of southern properly, that increase actually be ing in amount $2,163,000,000 greater than the wealth of the whole coun try in 1860 and nearly twice the value of southern property in 1880. EGG RECEIPTS ARE SIMPLY IMMENSE BARN YARD FOWLS OF MAURY COUNTY ARE WORKING OVER TIME NOW. That the hens have' commenced to work in real earnest again in Maury county is demonstrated daily by the enormous egg receipts. Every coun try store in the county is receiving eggs by the hundreds of dozens and the huckster wagons are doing a lanov office business. The receipts are re ported heavier than they have been for a year. The Culleoka Produce Co. at Culleoka, shipped the first full car of eggs on Friday that has been ship ped from tha section in a year. The ctr contained 6,000 dozen bought from the farmers at an average or 20 cents per dozen, making about $1,200 that has been distributed In the community for eggs alone within the period of a week. Fortunately the produce company had the eggs sold in New York before the slump in prices came. TATE AND DEAN IN GILES COUNTY HAVE ESETABLISHED EXPERI MENTAL FARMS FOR DEMON STRATION WORK IN 1912.
