YOUNG EUGENE ANDERSON OF MT, PLEASANT ALMOST VIC TIM OF DUCK RIVER. A tragic ending to a swimming party of young people from Columbia and ML Pleasant was narrowly averted last night about 8 o'clock by the'he roic efforts of the companions of Eu gene Anderson, IS, son of Dr. Emmett Anderson, of Mt. Pleasant, who ias drawn from the water 'in a semi-conscious condition. The boys in the swimming party that had gone to Duck river dn Dr. O. I-J'orter's farm below Columbia enter ed the stream about a- nuparter of a mile above the other members of the party and were swimming down stream when young Anderson shouted that he was out of breath. B. D. Joyoe swam to his resume and kept liim on top of the water a' few yards, when he, too, became almost exhaust ed. Then Joe Morgan, a very young boy but a splendid swimmer, reached the endangered youth ahd swam with him toward the bank of the stream where Joyce and the others in the party were able to lift him from the water. Young Anderson Risked who had saved him and w'aen he was told he expressed his gratitude and fell into unconsciousness. He was resussitat ed and Dr. W. E. Martin was called. Later he was carried to the King's j Daughters hospital where he'recover-ed. RECRUIT NG OFFICERS X TRAVEL MOTORCYCLE Privates, first das. Robert New man and Floyd Prertnn, of the XaslH ville he.idiiuarters of the I'. S. army recruiting office, have been in Colum bia this week ai?sNtin Sergeant Ma co wen of the local office. They are tounns: this section of the country in a motor cycle with side car attached. Reflecting the attitude shown by J T. Petty, who offered to give necessa ry rights of way on his frontage on the Pulaski pike for the construction of the proposed state highway, citl zens of the other two pikes on the sys tem are preparing today to meet his proposition and be equally as liberal. Committees began a systematic can vass of the pikes this morning to se cure grants of rights of way for the entire 43 miles. On the Mt. Pleasant pike W. P. Rid ley . and Ed L. Armstrong are calling on the property owners. On the Spring Hill pike 'Joseph Chapman, Filliam Cheairs and L. M. Short are securing the rights of way, On the Pulaski pike the canvass is made by J. T. Petty, Sam Wiley- and Porter Bros. Mr. Petty's proposal to give rights of way on his long frontage was fa vorably commented on, this morning and numerous other land owners on the Pulaski and other pikes declared that they would follow his lead. It is probable that when the county court meets Thursday morning to con sider a resolution that will provide for the necessary rights of way in compliance with the recmirements of the federal highway department there will be presented pledges from the land owners of practically the entire 43 miles frontage to give the rights of way that may be needed. The prob ability is that the present rights of way will be sufficient, but the federal government requires a guarantee of all necessary' rights of way before it will send any nioney on a road. , Six Women Put Names bn Book As Legal Voters (Daily Herald, August 12.) Six women register as voters in the Ninth district today, Mrs. D. D.'Little being the first to put her name on the books at the court hoime. Immediate ly 'following were the following names: Mrs. V. P. Morgan, Miss Willje Biddle, Mrs. R. S. Hopkins, Miss Carolyn Williams and Mrs. W. T. Glasgov?. All of the women were required to give their ages. There was a slight protest to this requirement by some of them, but' there was no camou flage when they gave the gacts. It was stated this morning by suf frage leaders that a number of other women in this and the Third and Sev enth districts will register before the hooks are closed.

OR, BARBER TO SPEAK - TO LOCAL W. C, T. U. . v ON CONDITIONS IN - EUROPE AS HE SAW THEM FRIENDS OF ORGANIZATION INVITED. The August meeting of the W. C. T. I. will be held Friday afternoon at 4 o'clock in the Sunday school room o the First Methodist church at which time Dr. J. H. Barber, pastor of the First Baptist church, will talk on the conditions in Europe as he saw Work on the public roads of the county is now on in earnest in nearly every district and upon a large por tion of the roads. During the past week work got under way on several of the main highways coming to the city and in addition attention is being given to some of the, most important cross roads and laterals. Men are responding splendidly to tthe appeal of the road officials and have agreeU to go upon the roads and direct the work and expend the funds that are appropriated to the several roads. These men are getting good results, too. They are taking the at tltrtidenhat it is just as much to their interest to have a good road as it is that of the road officials. At first there was a disposition of resentment and men declared that having paid their road taxes they would not work unless they were paid unheard of prices for their services and wagons and teams. However, when they realized that such a Course, generally pursued, would pimply re duce the funds available for working the highways, in which they had a most vital interest, they promptly changed their attitude and are now willing not only to hire their teams to the road officials at less than is paid on other public works but many of them are making contributions in addition. Superintendent Butler declared to day that before the end of the week the officials hoped to have, work in progress on every road in the county Assurances of support and co-opera tion, he stated, are coming from all sections and nothing had been more gratifying to the members of the board than the change of attitude upon the part of many of the citizens. "If the folks will just be patient, co operate with us and furnish us that measure of support to which we are entitled they are going to get better roads than we have ever had," said Superintendent Butler. SMITH-HUGHES AGRICULTURAL PROJECT MAY BE RESTORED IN HIGH SCHOOL. TERMS 'MADE MORE LIBERAL Supt. Will'ams Especially .Anxious That Great Agricultural County Should Share in the Distribution of Appropriation. It is 'not improbable that after all Maury county's high school will par ticipate again in the federal appropria tion for vocational education under what is termed the Smith-Hughes bill. It-will be remembered that the super intendent and high school board were dissatisfied with the highly technical administration of the fund received from the federal government during the past term and declined to again enter into arrangements for the com ing term. ' . ' However State Superintendent Wil liams was here Monday and made a more favorable proposition to County Superintendent Graham and City Su perintendent Harris and it is believed that this proposition will ultimately be accepted. Supt. Williams agreed that there should be a less technical administration of the fund thato was attempted in the past and "that the agricultural course should be, so ar ranged that it would harmonize with the other features of the school. . Discussing the matter Supt. Wil liams said: "I am especially anxious that Maury county, unqeustionably the greatest agricultural county in Ten nessee, should continue to enjoy the benefits of the Smith-Hughes appropri ation. If there is a county in the United States where agricultural edu cation should be stressed that county is Maury. I realize the shortcomings of the plan tried last year and can understand the skepticism of Supts' Graham and Harris, but I believe that we are going to be able to make an arrangement that will he profitable and satisfactory all around." . Supt. Williams spent severat hours yesterday in- conference with Supt. Harris and Supt. Graham. They dis cussed many of the school problems. POISONING STARTED ALL MY TROUBLES- TANLAC RELIEVED ME MRS.

"About four years' ago," she continu ed, ;'I had ptomaine poisoning, and that was the beginning of my trouble. Everything I ate would form gas that pressed. up against my heart and would almost smother file at times. I had severe cramping spells at times that got so bad I could hardly stand them. I was so nervous and restless that 1 couldn't sleep at pight and would be so fagged-out and restless that when morning came I could hardly et tip. I became so weak I had to give up my housework. ' "I tried all kinds of preparations but nothing did me any good until I start ed taking Tanlac. I began tx feel better from the start and my appetite improved so that I can now eat any thing I want. My sufferings are all over now, I can sleep like a baby, and get up in the morning feeling full of life and energy and able to do all mv housework. Tanlac has done so much for me that I am glad to recommend it to others." Tanlac is now sold in Columbia by the Smiser Drug Co. and by leading druggists everywhere.
