on't Lose That Third
CXPERTS have figured that eight loads
of manure spread by machine are
. worth twelve spread by hand. On this basis alone
it would pay you to buy a Low Cloverleaf '
Manure Spreader. By actual experience it is
shown that to spread one hundred loads of manure
by hand costs $44.00 by machine only $20.
Low Cloverleaf spreaders save half the distance
and time in getting the manure off as compared to
spreader which has no wide-spread device and
, J' merely unloads. You don t have to drive on pre
viously manured ground to make the strips of
manure match.. The manure gets two beatings' :
- and is well 5 pulverized. Wide-spread device per-J
mits of narrow box. This enables you to drive
into the barn and load directly from the gutter,1
' saving one handling.
You cannot expect land to grow crops on an empty
stomach. You have got to feed it. Manure is a fattening,
food. Either size of Low Cloverleaf spreader, small
medium and large, regulates the diet so that every foot'
of ground gets a well balanced ration.
A visit from you will enable us to show you how this
spreader makes money for you. Come in and see it

DECLARES THAT BECAUSE IT
HAD BECOME A PUBLIC SCAN
DAL LAW WAS REPEALED.
MAURY COUNTYJS SINGLED OUT
Merchants TMs County Alleged to
Bo the Particular Targets of Those
Who Would Reassess Them as Oth
cp Counties Not Molested.
Alleging that because the back tax
ing of property in Tennessee has been
carried on to such un extent ua to be
come a public scandal that the legis
lature of 1915 had repealed the law1
authorizing' it, that therefore there is
now no power to back or reassess prop
erty once duly assessed by the regu
larly constituted authorities, J. A.
Sloan Company, wholesale groceis.
have filed a bill in the chancery t on t
Keeking to enjoin and restrain Archi
bald W. Lipscomb, county court clerk,
aud Lonniti H. Ormes, state revenue
agent, from proceedings Instituted by J taxes
tliem to back assess the complainant:
Fiats for an Injum lion Acre issued
by Chancellor is'ewman, of Davidson
county, and bond in thy sum of $2,000
was executed and the process issued.
Hughes, lJateher & Hughes are the
solicitor;; for I lie complainants. Sev
eral thousands of dollars are involved
in thn case.
lu the bill it. is alleged I hut last
October the state revenue agent, Lon
u!e 15. Ornies, made a motion before
the county court clerk to back or re
assies the complainant for the year
l'Jie, 1 017, IMS and 191 9, and citation
thereon was duly issued. These hear
ing have been continued from time to
time and never held.
It is charged that 'the romplaimint,

nss, has been rcgula '; a.; :l:;:- ;hI for
t

tiffl 'Calomel salivates! It's mere
mercury, uaiomci
acts like dynamite on a sluggish liver. When
calomel comes into contact with sour bile it
crashes into it, causing cramping and nausea.
though no settlement for that year
had then been made wffen the citation
was issued.
It is furthr alleged that apparently
the merchants of Maury county have
been singled out particularly for back
tax proceedings although they pay as
much taxes as the merchants of other
counties. A decree perpetually enjoin
ing the proceedings is prayed for.
The salient features of the bill are
contained iu the following para
graphs "Complainants charge that the de
fendants are without power or author
ity, to institute or maintain such pro
ceedings, and this attempt to do so
is unwarranted and unjust and oppres
sive. "Complainant states that the revo
uue agents; for Hie statu of Tennessee
and the other taxing or back assess
ing authorities for the slate prior to
1915, did have the power to back as
sess or reassess properly which had
been assessed for taxation, but this
power was so oppressive and unjust
ly exercised as to become public scan
dal and the general assembly for the
, state of Tennessee for tho year 1015
enacted chapter 121 which deprived
the revenue agents or the taxing au
thorities or any one else of any such
authority and there now cxisH no
power or authority in any one to back
assess or re assess property which has
been to any degree whatever assessed.
"Complainant stales and charges that
its property has net been inadequate
ly assessed by reason of any conniv
ance on the fart of the complainant
or any of its officers or agcuts. The
fact is that complainant's property, in
cluding capital stock inve.tcd in the
business, has been asscJsed for all the
years in question upon the same basis
lliat nil other property has been as
sessed in Maury County and through
out the f.tate of Tennessee.
"This character of proceeding seems
to be aimed particularly at tho nrcr- i
chants of Maury county; us complain
ant is informed that if content platod
or inaU'-'uralod anaini.1 tlio merchants
i of aly other county cuiin have been
abandoned, with pe:'si'.ly one excep
tion, although the olhor merchants of
Middle Tennessee tin; not assessed
higher than the merchants of this
i (t unty."

who for tho past four weeks has been
disturbing these parts with hid antics.
It. is hoped that after the two more
wcoks which Mr Ground Hog hiber
nates, thero will be some real spring
weather, and that March will gambol
on the green, even as the lambs. But
the month is sure to go out stormy and
blustery, for- when March comes in

SELLS GROCERIES TO NEGROES
Stranner Sold Grooeries Below Whole
sale Cost to Negroes, Giving Them
Twelve Months to Pay for Same.
Got Cash .Deposit. ... . , ,
Tuesday evening -a well -dressed
stranger stopped . briskly up to Ihe
counter at tho Dethcl Hotel and regis
tered 'Fred. Sinch. Flint, Michigan.'!
He was assigned to a splendid room.
Tho next morning, dressed In a natty
brown business suit ho leisurely ate
breakfast and dropped down Into tho
lobby whpre be chatted with guests
before beginning his day's work.
Going from the hotel, tho stranger
went to Watson's livery stable, and
Introduced himself as F. vy'ilson,
salesman of the great "Michigan Gro
cery Company," and secured a. rig to
dl'Ive through . the country.
Ills was a" house to house plau, and
ho intended to hiako a thorough can
vas of the county. Business evidently
was brislf and it Is understood that
Mr, WilsonSinch "cinched" quite a
number of orders, and also cash do
posits on each order. It Is understood
that ho called upon no whito people
at all, confining his activities to the
colored population, which, peruaps,
explains how he was able to sell gro
ceries at such remarkably low prices.
This morning a , representative of
The Herald secured one of the orders
taKen by Wilson-Sinch. It was for $149
worth of groceries. Among the items
was IVi barrels of flour $15, &tt
pounds of lard $10, b boxes of soap $5,
one ,frnc. 1 bushel of beans $3, and
other groceries in proportion.. At the
.bottom of the list was ono good hat
free, and four yards of bleached do
mestic for wife, free. Of course on
such a large c-rderrit was noceasary to
secure "u small cash deposll,'iUo ,cus
omer being an unknown party' with
absolutely no jating. The "customer"
deposited $3 with Wilson-Sinch, and
was - given twelve months tune in
which jto pay the remainder
A .duplicate copy of. the ordej Jcf t
i tho bands of the "customer" bore
at the top these words. "The Michigan-Grocery
Co.,-Battle Creek, Mich."
Ulankg were left for the name of the
customer, shipping point, postoffSce,
aud buyer's name. In filling in this
order, Wilson-Slnch gave the shipping
place at "Clum, Mich., and where the
buyers should have Bigncd his name,
the order is signed "Fred Wilson." ')':
Wilsoi)-Sinch may have been an ex
pert salesman, .but when it comes, to
orthography, we cannot , hand him
much. He enters "1 Vs baiTels Flow
ers," and "2 sx Sagger but this spell
ing did net worry him in the least, for
ho made, good sales, during bis slay
in the county. It 13 understood that
on ono' sale lie secured a deposit of
$H0, and on iuito a number, from $5
to $10 In oUier words ho did a flour
ishing business, ho was prospering,
and in a most happy frame of mind.
As he lounged around the hotel lobby,
he laughed and joked with the guests,
and In tho tbrco days time he wa
there ho had learned to call some of
the most prominent citizens by their
first names it was Joo and Jim, Bill
with Mr. Wilson-Sinch, he liked .every
body, and thought .evorybody should
like him, he . was doing a great deal
to bring down tho high cost of 'liv
ing. Wasn't ho selling groceries for
less than they could be bought whole
sale? Wias ho not a philanthropist?
He became ho popular that Former
Mayor Dednian took notice. Why the
cause for this popularity? Was It be
cause of this fellow's ISO ponnds avor
dupols? Was it because of his slight
ly stooped posture? or his neat brown
suit, or because of the Elks pin he
wore, or because of the brilliant horse
shoo . diamond pin ' In his tie, or be
cause of his joculamood ?. What was
it that Iniado him so popular? . '''
, And then came Friday afternoon,
Mtv Slnch told the 'clerk at tho Bethel
that he had planned to , nin up to
Franklin for a few hours and then re
turn, and would sctllo his four day
hotel 1)111. then. This, of
ctudse, was agreeable to tho Clerk,
and .Mr. Hindi departed. Up uulil this
time be ha not returned, and former
.Mayor bod man has gotten no in the
babft of offering rewards that bo Just
could not help offering a reward for
information a to the whereabouts of
Mr. Sinch. Mr. Watson has not been
consulted, but it Is thought that he
would bfl willing to donate oomcthing
to tho amount offered by the ex-Mayor
Dcdman, and It Is known that sev
eral of the nesroea who purchased
goods from Mr. Sinch-Wilson would
be glad to give at least half of what
they paid "advance payment- if they
could ascertain the present location
of Mr. Wilson, , .
