In accordance with the provisions of the law governing the examination ot applicants for county superintend ent of public instruction Judge J. Trim McKnight, of the county ccurt, this morning appointed the following committee to examine applicants: Prof. R. L. Harris, Prof. Americus C. Allen and Prof. D. M. Galloway. They are all efficient and popular school men and better selections could hard ly have been made. The examination will be held the first of next , month. The questions are prepared by the state board of education and sent sealed to the com mittee in care of the county judge. They are not opened until the exam inations commence. It is not believedthat there will he any examinations held this year. Prof. John P. Graham, the county su perintendent, has a life "certificate and it is thought that he will be the only candidate for superintendent he- fore the court next January when his term expires. Prof. Graham mads such a high grade when he passed the examination that he was granted a certificate good for life, or as long as he is engaged In school work. It is practically assured that Mr. Graham will again be elected super intendent. He has made anenvhble record in office' and has given uirtver- sal satisfaction. A tireless worker, careful, painstaking, cautions and capable, he has been the ideal man for the place. . . y Mr. Graham i was first elected su perintendent in April 1907 to fill the vacancy caused by the death of the late SupL Dodson. He wSs re-elect ed in January 1909 and again in 1911. At the end of the term in January he will have served for nearly six years. Duing that period the schools of the county have shown wondorful progress and sentiment for public ed ucation has advanced rapidly. Squire Cord C. Denton, of Glen dale, nominated for repesentative by the democratic convention- of last Monday, has accepted the nomination and declares that he will at once be gin an active campaign of the coun ty Mr. Denton has already received the most flattering assurances of support.

The platform upon which he Is making the race .rfmtmhle one and is bound to appeal to the good people of the "Yes " said 'Squire Denton, I nave -canted the democratic nomination for representative from Maury coun ty upon the platform enunciated by the convention. That platfom repre sents the principles and convictions of a life time. I did not seek the nomination," on the contrary I hoped that another would be nominated. SLIGHT WRECK ON THE L & N. Crop conditions in this county show a big improvement during the past week. The ralns have been co pious and verything growing has been helped. The greatest good has been done the Irish potato crop. The vicisi tudes of this crop during the past season have been numerous and unus uaL The 'first crop was largely a failure and the weather was so un seasonable that the second crop was very late in being planted. That planted early generally caught the long drouth at a critical stage. While the rain has helped the early plant ing it has been much more beneficial to the plants whjch were put in the ground at a later date. They have grown and developed rapidly unce the drouth was broken and with a iota iHiiinff frost the yield from fc V V "U m them should be large. Pastures have been greatly bene fitted by the rains. Cattle it is ex pected will make rapid advances now until frost The cool weather has very largely eliminated the fly pest and with grazing much better they should show rapid improvement Farmers have been busy since the rains saving pea and other hay crops. The yield is reporcea 10 ue exceptionally large. Much crab grass hay Is being saved also. y, Hog fattening has commenced and despite the ravages of cholera which have made inroads in many sections and decimated the pig crop very ma terially the indications now are that about- the- average crop of hogs will be fattened In the county this fall. Since the rains the farmers have eone to plowing for wheat and tha in dications now are that about the nor mal acreage will be prepared for that cereaL While the plant Is late pros pects are good for a fair yield of cot ton. .

In the floterial district so far there is only one announced candidate for the nomination, Dr. E. P. Hickman, of Lawrence county, who is the pres ent incumbent. ' The district , is composed of four counties, and it may develop that the I conference committee will decide jthat it is better for the party that a nomination be made from one of the other counties. . ; NEW WALKS ON HIGH STREET WORK BEGAN THIS MORNING AND TO BE COMPLETDED DURING COMING WEEK.
