was necessary last year and was so
successful that something of the kind
may again be attempted.

Following thei first Democratic primary for county
officers in February 1910 Claude Godwin who was then
the leader, but who ran 340 votes behind the leader in the
recent primary issued the following appeal to the voters
of Rfiaury county, on February 10, 1910:
You nominated me LEADER in the first PRIMARY by a
majority of over 400 votes over my present OPPONENT. I beg
you next Saturday to remember the DEMOCRATIC CUSTOM
The Democratic precedent has always stood by the MAN WHO
GETS THE LARGEST NUMBER OF VOTES. I NEVER
SCRATCHED THE DEMOCRATIC TICKET in my life. I
have always been LOYAL to the time honored Democracy of the
Leader being the NOMINEE. I believe you will stand to the
Democratic custom. Then you will be a great FACTOR in dis
pelling FACTIONS AND SCHISMS in the Democracy of Maury,
county. . The keynote of Democracy is, UNITED WE STAND,
DIVIDED, we fall.
My heart swells with love for what you have done for me
and with the highest degree of gratitude prompts me to say that
all my endeavors and energy will be used to so conduct the
Sheriff's office that.no man shall live to regret having given me
- . - - i
I beseech every friend who voted for me and every Demo
crat, whether they voted for me or my opponents, to vote for
me next Saturday. ,
I have no ill feelings toward anyone but claim the custom to
appeal to all Democrats to stand by mc next Saturday, Feb. 12.
With gratitude to all.
In the recent Primary I received substantially the
SAME PROPORTION OF THE VOTES that Godwin re
ceived in the primary in I9IO.
MY MAJORITY OVER GODWIN IS OVER 340 Votes.
. Leading Candidate for Sheriff
HOPE TO RETAIN
BELIEVER THAT SUSPENSION OR
DER MEANS RETENTION OF
BRINGS THE MAIL HOURS EARLIER
Schedules Have Been Remarkably
. Maintained Since the Service Was
Started All Depends on the Report
(From Wednesday's Daily Herald.)
. With the suspension of the order
for the discontinuance of the star
j truck routes from Lewisburg to Co
( lumbia and from Columbia to Mt.
j Pleasant and Lawrenceburg it is be
I lieved that there is a good prospect
j for the continued operations of these
! routes, . . '
When the order was issued tor the
discontinuance of these route3 Kepre
j sentative Lemuel P. Padgett, of this
i district immediately got busy. He at
I once went to the ofBffice of the sec
ond assistant postmaster general and
protested that to undoovhai bail been
done In this 'terrHr rirthe prompt
delivery of mail wul j be & great in
justice. So earnest was Mr. Padgett
and so convincing his arguments that
he finally prevailed on the department
to suspend the order and give time
for an investigation. This was done.
It is expected that the inspectors
will at once make a thorough investi
gation of the routes. Final action will
depend altogether upon the report
that they make. The star service
from Lewisburg serves a great many
offices and routes and patrons. Leav
ing Lewisburg on the arrival of train
No. 1 from Nashville and the North
this route serves Culleoka and its
five rural routes and Columbia and the
ten routes out from here. The mail
is then sent to Hickman county and
to Lawrence county and by traiji con
nections other patrons of the post
offlce are served.
The early morning mail from Nash
ville and the north is brought into Co
lumbia more than two hours earlies
than would bo the case if the route
w as no in operation. From a stand
poinfof maintaining schedules the ser
vice has been remarwabiy good. Only
on a comparatively few occasions has
the truck been very late in arriving
here and it is usually right on time.
The trucks have hauled a good many
passengers and have in that way been
of service to the public.
It is understood that the order is
sued for the discontinuance of the ser
vice was in line with the policy .of
economy that Postmaster General
Hays has inaugurated. Nevertheless
he has stated that there would be no j
economies that would interfere with
the prompt and efficient delivery of

Is sufficient interest in berry growing
to orgauize a Strawberry Association.
In the. event farmers will agree to
plant as much as fifty acre3 In berries
the association will be formed, but if
this amount cannot be secured it is be
lieved that the project will be aban
doned. It is al.;o planned to discuss the can
taloupe prospect for 1922, and in the
event the cantaloupe growers decide
to plant good crops next spring the
organization will anticipate its needs
and will order supplies accordingly.
