Gentle reader, for over fifty years xve $
have been amused with the story of the A
Arkansas Squatter who sat and "fiddled" J
away, day after day. with no roof on his
house, until finally the rainy day came (as 0
it will come to us all) then alas, it was A
too wet to cover it.
Do you know some men right here in
Bryan County are doing the bame thing, nnd
will not have any Winter Pasture for their
milch cows. Get busy men, and get busy
right now. Plow your ground, get your A
seed reauy anu nave a xvinier pasture, ii
you can't get barley got rye, wheat or win
tor oats, but in spite of thc mischief and
high water grow some kind of xvinter pustule.

T. F. MEMM1NQER, Atoka.
Tom Memminjer reprcrttjntcd Bryan, Atoka and Coal coun
ties in the State Senate from 19)7 to I91.', and his record is one
that reflects credit on him, on h.- District and on the Democrat
ic Party. He was active, conservative, courageous, and always
for a square deal.
Jesse M. Hatchett, one of Bryan county's best citizens, serv
ed in the Senate with Mr. Memmingor, and here is what he has
to say of him:
TO THE PUBLIC:
I hurl the pleasure of .serving in the State Senate with T. P. Mem
minfrer two term';. He was clean, honest anil industrious, and a strong
believer in practicing economy with the State's business. He occupied
little time of the Senate in speech making, but all the members had
great faith in his judgrn nt; none stood higher in that respect. I always
found him faithful to the people of this District and the State, and
most earnest in his efforts in support of all good legislation, and equally
earnest in opposition to all bad legislation. I believe we should be
more appreciative of faithful public servants, hence I am glad to make
