Bitter Fight U Made Upon Ford's Pro posal to Government by Big Power and Steel Trusts of the Nation. (Copyrighted by United Press.) WASHINGTON, Oct.' 13 "If the fc'pvernment will only let' me have Muscle Shoals I'll teach it something about solving the unemployment prob lems," Henry Ford, automobile manu facturer and owner of, the Dettroit, Toledo and Ironton railroad, said in an exclusive interview here prior to his departure for the West Virginia coal fields Wednesday night. For tho past several weeks there have been no . new developments in the Muscle Shoals. It is known that powerful interests are working night and day'to prevent the government's acceptance of Mr.' Ford's bid. Espec ially active in this campaign against Ford are the big powder and steel manufacturers, who fear their own business may be hurt ."by the devel opment of Muscle Shoals property by the Detroit manufacturer. 1MY1 mm FARHER PREDICTS A BETTER PRICE NEXT SPRING" FOR FAT BEEF CATTLE. "Fanners will in my judgment, hiis3 a good opportunity ,to make some money, or at least get a better price for their corn ancl roughage than they could realize if it were sold directly, if, they de not take advantage of the opportunity to borrow money to buy small- feeder cattle," said a well known farmer who has had much experience in recent years with the markets and articularly with cattle. "I do not see a chance to lose at the prices which feeders are being sold today. It will not cost much to carry the cattle and they are" sure to sell better next spring or I do not know anything about tho market." Two Roads Being Constructed In That Section Largely Through Efforts of Public Spirited Citizens Will Mean Much to Them. RETURNS FROM CHUfIGH FINDS HOME IN J.SHES RESIDENCE GEO. KINZLR A.

Road Superin tendent Wilkes said this morning that while he had received flue co-operation from many sections of tho coun ty,, nowhere had the spirit been quite so fine or so much given, for the road building as had been the case in the fourth district. . As a result of tho generous contri- i butions of tho people of that section the road from the covered bridge across Duck river to Leftwich bridge will be practically re-constructed.' Tho citizens of this five or six njile stretch have hauled and donated absolutely, free of charge more than 1,000 loads of gravel', declared Mr. Wilkes this morn ing. They have not only hauled the gravel buV the owners of the gravel bars have given every bit of it to the county. . ,: - . Thej-e are today no less than twen-. ty-flve teams, cm the road hauling gravel, and the only expense to the lounty is the pay of the hands on the bar who are loading the wagons. . On tomorrow the eitizens of that section are going toserve a big dinner to all the worltors and they have invited Mr. Wilkes to'be present and partake. The leading spirits. in this great enter prise that will give Leftwich bridge and al that section of the county a ;icw highway to Columbia have been Mick Liggett, .Will Blalock, the Gor don brothers and several others equal ly as active and zealous. Th late Wallace Sowell before his death did much to arouse the spirit that lii J neighbors hafre shown in their gener osity. Likewise the people of the fourth district on the new road that is being constructed north from Bryants Sta tion toward Leftwich have shown the came spirit of -generosity., Through a rough country they have practically constructed a fine road with but little aipenso to Maury county. This road by. the same spirit will be completed to Leftwich. Among the leaders in this enterprlfo have beon Andrew .!, Hardlsori, member of the county bo:nl cf education; Road Commissioner Joe Check and Walter. Hardison. They have given hundreds of loads of grav ol and done an immense amount of work. When this road is finished to Leftwich it will save the people of that entire river section two fine out lets. They can come either direct to Columbia or tlijf can reach the rail road at Uryants, a distance of about five miles or can come that way over the Lewisburg pike to town.

Frovino Greenlaw, former car rier and vaiued employe, of Tho' Her ald, has gone up another notch. He has been made assistant casifier of the Columbia Bank &Trut Company, an institution for which he has labor ed faithfully ,for sovoral years. From the time, as a little shaver, many, many years ago, Provine Greenlaw commenced, to carry The Herald, he has been known for his fidelity to duty and 1iis energy. His promotion will be most gratifying to tho, pa trons of the bank. Carl A. Boss has been elected pay ing teller of the institution. He has performed tlm duties of the place with such satisaction to the officials and patrons cf the bank that he has re ceived formal election to the office. Mr. Ross was formally with the Hampshire bank and is one of the most popular bankers in the county.

Two years ago tho first kill .ii.,; frost did not-co.'ne until up in No krnbor, but four years ago the first ititling. frost .was on October 8. It is expected that' the freeze last "ight did soaio damage to corn, espec ially that very late. It also nipped tho sorghum, but the weather wan so dry that nothing like the harm was done that would have resulted-if there had been any rain. Tho weather forecast for today and tonight is rising temperature, so- that whatever escaped the cold of last night will be certain, to have a respite of several days before there is anoth er "killing frost." The mercury fe'l rapidly last night. Itdropned twenty degrees -according to Mrs. Fleming's ibservat'ons, between six o'clock last night and early this morning when the low mark was registered.

Therefore if lie patrons of the Columbia office to whom mail is delivered want to keop off this report they should with out any further delay provide the num bers for their house, and the recep tacle or slot for the mail. Tho reasons" for requiring the num bers on the house and the recentacle3 4re thus set forth by the postofflce department: promptly locate buildings to which mail is addressed and to avoid errors and delays In delivery.
