"Another farmer from Illinois, who
visited the exhibit, stated that he bad
just sold bin farm in that state for
$185 per aero and was going to Ten

cate there if ho could find a farm
suited to hia purpose. Ho is an ex
tensive breeder of Percherou horses,

Ha was supplied with literature from
the exhibit, and seemed to be very fa
vorably impressed. Several others ex
pressed a desire to visit the state, and
it is believed that honicseekers' excur

the exhibits will carry many in

Thin suit crows out of the contro
versy whirh was settled by this court
in the case of Ijuuliith vs. Jliidius, 121

In that case this court held that tho
union attempted between the Cumber
land Presbyterian Church and the Pres
byterian Church in the United State
of America, or more briefly called, the
Pretibj terian Church, U. S. A., was void
And that in case of a division ol a coir
gregution of the Cumberland Pre.by
terian Church and a subsequent litiga
tion over the church property, that fac
tion which adhered to the doctrinal
standards of the Cumberland Presbyte
rian Church was the true congregation,
and was entitled to the property. The
court also held in that case thut the
faction of such congregation which went
over to the Presbyterian Church, U. S.
A., in recognition of such void attempt
ed union had no longer any right to
the church property.
"The complainants in the present bill
claim to be and represent that portion
of tho congregation of Graco Cumber

mained with that church and did not
go over to tho Presbyterian Church, U.

defendants and those whom they repre

licly claim to be members of the Pres

"Under the foregoing facts and the
principles settled in Landrith vs. Hud

Nashville. Gov. Hooper granted a
pardon to A. II. Harrison, who was con
victed of an assault in the Davidson
County Criminal Court in 1905 and sen
tenced to the county road for six
months.' Shortly after Harrison had
been sent to tho county road he es
caped and went to Indiana, where he
secured employment and married. Re
cently bo returned to Davidson County
and secured employment in Nashville
and was making a comfortable home
for his wife and family when he was
recognized and officers re-arrested him.
His wife was left with the care of
tho children and in a strange city. Sev
eral persons became interested in the
ease. As a result of this interets and
the fact that Harrison behaved him
self whilo in Indiana and since his re
turn to Nashville, and the further fact
that Gov. Hooper has a letter from his
employer stating that he is a good man
and that he will take him back and
give him employment, the pardon as to
the road sentence and also the fine was
issued.

Knoxville. Col. Sam McKinncy, aged
66, died at his Main avenue residence.
Though born in Greene county, he spent
sixty-one years of his life in Knoxville.
He was a graduate of the University of
Tennessee, and also took law, by tho
wish of his father, who was a supreme
court justice. With the Hon. John V.
Daniels, he stumped Tennessee ami Vir
ginia in the Hayes-Tilden race, and
while he was a most eloquent speaker,
he never held office except in the Ten
nessee legislature, serving In the lower
house in 1904. With Col. John M. Flem
ing he established the Knoxville Tribune
in 1870, but remained in the newspaper
business only two years. His widow,
Mrs. Annie Hooth McKinncy, is a well
known Tennessee writer, their son,

Nashville. Speaking for the lio.ird !
Trade, Judge Kobcrt F.wing, member ol
the agricultural committee, weLnmeJ
the 'IVimc.-Hee Vegetable, Fruit and l!ee
men to Naihville. paying, in part:
"Gentlemen I can say very ' truth
fully that no more pleasing duty could
have been assigned me by the Nash
ville linurd of Trade than to extend, oil
ita behalf, a verv cordial welcome to
Nashville to siicli a very' helpful uml
patriotic organization as yours, tu
have held meetings here on many pre
vious occasions. I sincerely hope that
the present one will be so pleasant to
members ind so productive of good to
your fellow-citizen throughout the stato
that you will, before you leave, pass
some kind of resolution, if only a silent
one in your hearts, that Nashville, a
the capital, central city of the ntate,
hereafter shall have Tho honor and pleas
ure of receiving you each year.
"You are fully alive to the fact thnt
the extraordinary cost of living 1 now
the ono subject uppermost in tliu minds
of all classes. All agree that the situa
tion which now embarrasses us is any
thing but agreeable.
"One caiwe, perhaps, is that ome in
land communities which used to enjoy
the best of food now find that the means
of transporting this rapidly to the larg
est cith-s which pay the highest juices
are so perfect that unless raisers firmly
resolve to keep for their own consump
tion the things which they raise, thee
are almost taken from them by the at
tractive prices which they know they
can obtain in these markets. Then, again,
cold storage houses of magnitude have
been established in all of these larger
cities. These preserve so perfectly and
for so long a time perishable thin;; that
the temporary over-supply of these,
which used to offer occasional oppor
tunities of getting thing cheaply, no
longer favors consumer.
"Vcgctavble.s, fruits, honey and other
foods of like nature, to tre better and
cheaper production of which you nie
now devoting laborious attention, go far
toward furnishing us the means of liv
inir comfortably. In the matter of
fruits, every one must admit that years
ago, when agricultural knowledge was
not so far advanced, many of the dis
tricts of Tennessee did produce fruits
of the very best quality. What has
been done in the past in the way of
production of such apples can surely be
done ngain.
"I am not a practical farmer, and
my thoughts on farming matters are,
perhaps, of but little worth, but knowl
edge of this deAcicncy on my part shall
not prevent me from saying that I
think that an association like yours is
on the right track for the correction
of evils which are bearing very heavily
upon many communities our own
y-yug the number."

"Cos you said 'twarn't none of my
btzness. I has to signal If that train's
to stop."'
