PECULIAR SNAKE AROUND BANANAS WAS PUT ON EXHIBITION AFTER BEING CAPTURED ALIVE. SMITHV1LLE, Tenn.f March 16. Much excitement was caused here by the finding of 'a very peculiar looking snake on a bunch of banannas in a grocery store. The stalk had been hanging in the store for several 'days. All the ba nannas except the last three rows had been taken off when the snake was discovered, closely wrapped about the stalk. ' It was captured alive by loop ing a strlngi around its neck, and was placed in a box. After covering the box with glass, the snake was viewed by a large number of people. The shape of its head shows it to be -of the venomous variety, but no one who has yet seen it knows its particular species. ; ; . ' Herald Cheap Column Ads Pay, BOYS CLUBS MAKE - -FARM ATTRACTIVE PRODUCTION IS INCREASED BY SCIENTIFIC METHODSAND "YOUNG FARMER 8ATISFJED." ., fhe work of organizing boys' corn and pig clubs and girls poultry and canning clubs in Maury county has ac tually begun. ' ' "i, . County Agent E. A. McLean and Mrs. Kate Crady, home demonstration agent,, hope to visit every school in the county before the end of. the pres ent month, and to organize clubs of not less than six members in each community. . Wl;ere these clubs have already been organizedsplendid work is being done, the boys are making ready their land for corn planting in the most approved and scientific man ner, and will keep accurate records of the expenditures, and receipts fr6m the land they are working. One way to mdke the "back to the farm movement" a success, is to keep the boy from leaving the farm. Then follow this logical conclusion. ': To keep the boy on the farm, it must be made so attractive that he will not want to leave it. It is human nature for the boy to seek his fortune else where if he is forced to farm in the way his father did. - "Old Beck" and thecotton plow line do not appeal to the imagination of the boy. He wants power, he wants to use the most sci entific methods. He wants to see that he.' is actually producing re-sults-to be a business man, and to farm in a business-like way. This is what the agricultural agent seeks to accomplish. He , hopes tov have the father do everything possible to en courage the boy in his early farming efforts, rent him land at a reasonable figure,' and give him the benefit, of his experience. ' .

Hoover's boom in this section is be ginning to take coiucrete form. Al ready the organization of a Hoover club has commenced and the boosters are being greatly encouraged by the reception which has been accorded the movement. Business men, bank ers, lawyers, farmers and newspaper folks are all for Hoover. Among the numbr of the loyal sup porters of the former food administra tor are such well known citizens as Major Horace Frierson, late command er of a batallion in the A. E. F.; Chas. P. Hatcher, one of the, leading law yers; Capt. Ivichard Smith, late of the A. E. F.; President C. A. Parker, of the Maury National Bank; Judge John W. Fry, Harry Frierson, J. B. Hardi- -son.; Col.

There are scores and scores of others who are for Hoover and their names will be 'enrolled by the Hoover boosters. The remarkable fact about Hoover is that although he is not a candidate for President and will not permit the use. of his name, the sentiment in both parties is strong for his nomina j tion. Every where the democrats are rallying to his standard, and in the j primary tn the republican party in Minnesota, although not a candidate, Hoover ran a good third, leading such a well known republican and promi nent candidate as Gov.

IRISH POTATOES 00 ! ; BEST1 IN LIGHT SOIL RESPOND TO HEAVY APPLICA- TION OF COMMERCIAL FER- " TILIZERS. MEAT PACKERS ARE HIT BY PRICE SLUMP PROFITS FROM HIGH PRICED HOGS VANISH WITH DECLINE OF FINISHED PRODUCT. Frcm present indications'"" meat packers are, going to be hard hit in Maury- county this season. During the past month or so there has boen a decided slump in tho prices of meat and lard. From thirty cents a pound lard has slumped to around twenty- three cents or "a little better whole sale. One big packer in the county stated today that he had offered one hundred sland3 of good hog lard at twenty-three cents and had not sold it all. Sides and shoulders are quot ed in Nashville at even less and thH demand is light. Even hams which have been recently the food of only the "idle rich" have gone down to a point, where they are in reach cf com mon mortals. It do3 not rake much knowl edge of arithmetic to figure out a l au city of profits on hogs bought at from The Irish potato thrives best in looso deep 'soil fulf of decayed vege tation. The open sandy soil of Ten nessee improved J-by growing clover and other legume crops produces splendid potato crops. "Manure ' is needed on thin land and lime on sour land.' No not apply fresh manure. lime or wood ashes directly to a pota to crop. They aid the growth of scab, They should be applied to a preced--iiig clover crop, but never at planting time. Well rotted manure may be ap plied in the spring, applying it broad cast at the rate o'f eight or ten tons to the acre, and plowing it or' discing it into the soil.. , Potatoes respond to heavier appli cations cf commercial fertilizers than most other farm crops'. The best method, of application is to open rows that are ready for planting with a broad shovel plow and scatter the fer- three inches of the midtile on either side. Again run the plow in the fur row to mix the fertilizer with tho soil. LOVE IS INSANITY IN VIEW OF N, Y. JUDGE BELLEVUE IS THE FINISH FOR A FISH DEALER'S RO MANCE. -- ' ;. - NEW YORK, March 17.
