Plans are in progress here for the entertainment of the 108th meeting of the Holston conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, which will convene October 7 In the Pulaslcl Methodist church with Bish- op Horace M. rmBose presiding. The conference will mark the sec- ond time the 'Pulaski congregation has been host since its organization In 1824. A campaign has already begun to secure lor Emory and Henry and Hiawassee colleges and-ihe Hol- ston conference board of education. Campaign headquarters have been established in Bristol, and active work or organization by con- ference, district and church is now under way. The campaign will cover a confer- ence-wide area, and is headed by ex- Governor H. C. Stuart, Elk Garden, Va., as honorary chairman, bj former Senator William E. Brock as general chairman, and Mrs. L. A.

The four year rule however is no longer operative concerning pastors LONDON, Oct. depression may be one ill wind that did nobody any good, but at least it proved sev- eral things that have hitherto been a mystery to many people. Extreme socialists and the more radical ''reds" have held more than one audience spellbound with their wonderings as to what "the gilded parasites of English nobility" -would ,do if they were stripped of their riches. "Soap-box orators" have been fond of alluding to the titled class as "drones m the hive of tn- 'dustry" and looking forward to the day -when these so-called drones would be compelled to go out and earn their living by the sweat of their brow. The self-elected spokes- man of the downtrodden people would then go on to paint a vivid word picture of Lord So-ana-So starving tp death before he would deign to soil his lilywhite hands. But when the looked-for crisis came and the much-abused nobility was shorn of its riches, it didn't -lay down to starve in its dignity On the contrary, it set out to prove that the pnase, The colonel's lady and Judy O'Grady are sisters under the is more truth than po- stry.

But to their credit be it that they never made a squawk. Instead ihey set about confounding the radical critics who had styled them Invertebrates. Although born with the pro- verbial golden spoon in their STOPS FALLING HAIR mouths, these peers and peeresses proved that they had at least one thing in common with the rest of had to eat. and to eat they must work- So, to the utter confusion of their traducers, England now has its ti- tled day laborers, chauffeurs, dec- orators, ffeh-and-chip-potatoe fry- ers, kitchen hands, saloon keepers, painters and mechanics. The Duchess o' Portland, one of the proudest as well as one of the most beautiful womfn in England, discovered that she had an unsus- pected accomplishment when she proved to be an expert in the fry- ing of fish-and-chips. a dish be- loved of the lower classes Lady Ossulston, also compelled to earn her coffee and cakes, decided on a laundry as a means of providing an income and she has made a suc- cess of her new career. They gay and debonair Lord Hamilton of Dated! turned from his racing autos and horses and concentrated on cows. Now he is reaping a gold- en harvest from his dairy store in Glasgow. Lord Northesk, who was wont to expend much energy tearing from one night club to another, makes a decent living selling automobiles. Then there is Sir John Fagge. who came1 from America 18 months ago and claims to be a Jack-of -all-trades, waiter, factory hand, dock laborer, insurance agent and even trolley oar driver. Many peeresses have opened milli- nery and dressmaking establishments and most of these ventures are more or less successfully keeping the wolf from the door. A sad case, however. Is that of Sir Charles Suckworth Herne-Soame, who is unable to find a job and is forced to accept the government dole of 82.91 a week.

Royalty Rides to Church Stanwood and East 8 tan wood, wash., operating after 40 years. King George V. of England and his second son. Prince George, are shown in their carriage as they were driven from the royal residence at Edinburgh, Scotland, to the ancient Crathie Abbey in Aberdeen- to attend the religious services. The King visits Scotland each year and spends several weeks at his castle in the Scottish those immediately about him, which would little interfere with his af- faire and yet prove very beneficial to' himself and to those wno come in contact with him. There are certain diseases, the virus of which Is so subtle that it will lit- erally float in the air and spread widely. In the vast majority of diseases, however, their spread is achieved only through fairly intimate contact be- tween the sick and the well. If this contact could be broken the diseases would not spread, and the "fire would be backfired." By avoiding all contact with those who are sick, by scrupulous clean- liness, especially as affecting the hands, mouth, foods and feeding utensils, the spread of infection could be curtailed. DISEASES Backfiring Is a widely used meth- od for the control of turf fires. The conflagration is permitted to burn itself out. the rest of the coun- try being protected by the charred ring of backfired territory. In dealing with disease epidemics we are often called on to by encircling the disease conflagra- tion with a ring of quarantine In the case of a smallpox epidemic, for example, the territory Involved Is usually quarantined and those In the Immediate vicinity who are suscep- tible are vaccinated. The disease then dies out for want of susceptible victims. Theoretically, many diseases could be controlled by this method, but un- fortunately it is not a practical pro- cedure. There is a limit- to the amount of policing one can or should do with people, even in the interest of their health. There is work to be done, and quarantine interferes with Industry and business. However, there is a form of rela- tive quarantine which the individ- ual could apply to himself and to Agony Of Piles ITCHING INSTANTLY STOPPED Why not relieve yourself of the terrible torture of those sore.
