Tat Nmimc.
The Democratic Executive committee
of tlM State hart declared Hon. E. F.
Meet nominee for rovernor. His elec
tion la a matter of course, Mississippi
has the promise now of one of the
cleanest, most practical and substan
tial administrations which she has had
for the past half century. No man in
the State is better equipped in ever'
respect for the high position than Mr.
Noel Familiar with the legislation for
the past quarter of a century, he knows
the wants and necessities of the people,
and his upright and firm character give
assurance that the material welfare of
our beloved State will have his undi
ided attention.
Among the first duties which will de
i , .
oive upon mm wnen ne enters upon
hie high offic will be the appointment
of a Judge or the tenth judicial dis
trict Meridian haa had this appoint
ment ever aince the district whs organ
ised Fewetl, Huddleeton, fHall, Coch
ran, en! Noxubee haidly second to Lau
aerwur in weaun ana population, is
certainly entitled to claim something at
the hands of the incoming administra
tion.
The appointment of Hon. D. F. All
good to succeed Judge Cochran would
meet the hearty approval of all classes
ef our eitiiens. He is, in every res
pect eminently qualfied to meet the du
tiee and discharge, without fear or fa
Tor, its responsibilties. He is one. at
least, who will enforce the law as it is
written and not like he wants it, and
we sincerely hope that our next gover
nor will find it consistent w'.th his du
ties to the people of this district to
bestow the appointment as the Beacon
ha suggested,
rWnbet'i First Bale.
The first bale of cotton for the season
ef 1907-08 was brought to Macon Fri
day, August 30th, by Mr. Earle Skin
ner, and was sold at public auction
Mr. Walter B. Patty and brought the
handsome sum ef 18 1-2 cents per pound
According to Mr. S. L. Holt this is
days later than the first bale was mar
keted last season, and on August 30th
M bales had been brought to his yard
Considering the late Spring it is
matter of surprise that a bale could
have been gotten ready for market at
so early a date. The weather was so
onpropitious during the planting sea
son a large part of the cotton of thi
county had to be planted from two
M l: i ....
lour . units ana iuiiy one nan was
planted between the first and middle of
June, at a time when, ordinarily cot
ten is blooming. That eotton is ready
for market now argues that Noiubee
land and farmers are all right, as noth
ing but good land and good cultivation
could mature cotton in so short a time
It being only from 10 to 14 weeks since
the crop was planted.

Warsaw, Ind., Aug. 2S.-Mrs. A. B.
Sims of , Des Moines, winner of fhe
woman's whist championship of the
United States, stood before an audience
of 4000 at Winona Lake tonight and
told why she bprned up the forty decks
of cards that fifc had'at her home.
"It was hot , uncommon for me tc
plsy whist from 10 a. m. to 11 p. m.,"
said Mrs. Sims.' "After that I saw
what I was really doing. I burned up
all the pasteboards, and I should like
to speak in every church in the country
to the Women and tell them what card
playinf led me to, and what it will lea.!
them to. It was undermining the
church. The whist and euchre parties
were sweeping the women of the con
gregation and the church was sinking
keeauee of their neglect. The card
erase as it prevails among women is
the moat serious competitor the church
has today." ;

Kdlto- Bi-aron:
Please publish the following program
of the Farmers Institute to be held on
the 4th-6th of September at the A. &
M. College.
I hope we can have a large number
of our Noxubee farmers and their
wives (for ladies are especially invited)
present, for I am sure each and every
one will be benefitted and Profs. Gar
ner, Fietoher Jackson, Dr. Roberts and
myself will give our personal attention
to the comfort of our Noxubee friends.
It will cost but little and I am -ure all
will enjoy the trip. If you can't go up
Tuesday evening and spend the whole
time, look at the program and pick out
the day that the appointed exercises
will interest you.
Now our farmers would not come out
and ha-ar Mr. Clark of the Cotton Asso-
iation and the last Institute appointed
for Macon was not even announced and
of course not attended, so let us make
up for lost time and have a large dele
gation from our county at this Institute.
We can go up Wednesday evening on
the train that leaves Macon at 2 o'clock
m., and get to the college in time
for the evening exorcises and all can
return Saturday morning reaching Ma
con about 12 o'clock.
Good bye,
Big Bud.

emoriam.
Mm. Kale Btideet Gibeoo.
On July 28th, 1907, there passed from
earth the pure spirit of thiB noble wo
man, beloved and honored by all who
knew her. She die 1 in hor husband's
home near Birmingham, and was hur
ried beside her parents in Oak Grove
cemetery at Atic.'ville. Slie was reared
in Macon, and thi3 brief chronicle will
recall the merry, warmhearted Kate
Bridges to many Win? friendj of her
youth in our community. Sh-; was sin
gularly amiable, cheerful ai l sympa
thetic, and as child and m iide.i she j
won the hearts of young and old, and
held then fast as friends. These lova
ble traits grew along with the years,
'till like the Master, Christ, she fol
lowed. She was in loving touch with
all her kind; rejoicing at the marriage
feast and weeping at the tomb. Self
abnegation was a striking trait in her
fine character.
For several years this bright young
girl was truly a "ministering angel"
to her paralyzed and helpless father,
giving him the untiring devotion of
hand and heart, pouring out all the
charm and beauty of her youth to cheer
the loneliness of his confinement and
soothing his sufferings by unstinted at
tentions, gentle ministries and tender
sympathy. After her father's death
she fell ii-.to ill health herself and for
some years was a disciple of pain and
bxiily weakness. These afflictions were
cheerfully accepted, nor ever dimmed
the warm love-light of her eye, nor
clouded the brightness of ready smile,
nor hushed the kindly word towards all
who came near her, but served to en
large and intensify her loving interest
in others.
In 1904 she was happily married to
Mr. C. L. Gibson, who survives her.
Their homemaking and hardiness,
though brief, was bautiful'Though

1 he practice oi miscegenation upon
which we received a special charge to
inquire into, we believe to be on the
decrease, we have received promise
from parties thought to be guilty of
said offense that their habits would be
changed for the better.
The reports as to the public through'
lares or the county, are in the main
satisfactory. We would call the at
tention of ihe Board of Supervisors of
trie county to tne ionowing, towit, mat
tlev see that the materials that are
furnished road overseer are used, and
that they check all such meterials by
the vouchers furnished with the ac
counts against the county. We think
that some of them have b en derelict
of their duty,
We hnd that parties livine in adioin
ing counties and the bordering state of
Alabama, are in the habit of making
Deriodical trios throutrh the countv of
Noxubee, peddling whiskey and other
intoxicating drinks, we suggest that
your Honor instruct the sheriff to get
these parties, even at the trouble and
expense of requisitions.
We suggest that the magistrates of
the various districts of the county be
more diligent. Not to wait for the
grand jury, net to postpone matters for
said body, but see out inquire into,
and apprehend many of the offenses
that properly come under their iuisdic
tion.Ve refer to local troubles of the
vicinity near Shuqualak and Mashula
ville to the respective magistrates and
good citizens of said localities.
A social club in the town of Macon,
known as the Noxuhee Club, is com
plained of by many of the good people
of this town. We have examined some
of the members and the secretary and
manager of aaid club, in addition to
many citizens of this own,. and we con
clude from all evide.ice produced that
the main features of the club ia to le
galize a saloon, the profits to be used
in the club only. We suggest the clos
ing and abolishing of said club, believing
saia act to De ior ine guuu ui me
county.
Some of us, who were your Honor's
severe critics during your first adminis
tration, have seen our error and wish
to commend vou for the improvement
of the general, moral tone of the coun
ty, a fact which is due to your aplenaia
methods. Having discharged our au
ties to the best of our abilities, e ex
tend thanks to the officers, where same
is due, and ask that we be discharged.
