Hunter who announces his can didacy for the office of supervisor from this, the third district. Mr. Hunter is peculiarly fitted to the position to whir h he aspires as he has had years of ex perience as a contractor and builder, and has done much road and bridge building. He submits his name sub ject to the Democratic primaries to be held in August. . S. B. Cotton. We areB!tiiorized to announce the name of Mr. J. B. Cotton as a candi date for the office of county treasurer, suoje't to tne action or tne una pn maries. Mr. Cotton made a splendid race for this office four years ago, leading his opponents in the first primary, but was defeated by a small majority in the second primary. In the person of Mr. Cotton, the peo ple have a most worthy example of energy and perseverence, for though bearing infirmaties that would cause many to become charges upon their rel atives, his proud nature spurning such a disposition, causes him to prefer to do in the battle of life and live from the earnings of his own hand. Honest and honorable, ho goes be fore the peoplg again asking a favor able consideration of his claims, and as suring them that his services will be efficient in the discharge of his duties if he is elected. He is a good neighbor, a most excel lent citizen, and we feel sure that ho will never give any one cause to regret having voted for him. Brooksville Review.

X DC 72U r The Farmers' Institute will be held at the following pip ces on the follow ing dates: Okolona January 25, 1915. Aberdeen " 26, ' ! West Point ' VI, Columbus " 2S, Macon " 2U, " At these meetings it is proposed to discuss two subjects which are of vital importance to the farmers of the Prai rie section. Wa will have men thor oughly posted to discuss the breeding and feeding of beef cattle, and we have been fortunate in securing the services of Mr. W. M. Newton, of the Board of Trade of Birmingham, Ala., who is an expert on hay. In the past many hay growers who were familiar with the clatses and grades of hay, have shipped their hay to Jmarkets improperly graded. This has resulted not only in loss to t e shipper but has caused misunderstand ing between the grower and the com mission men. Mr. Newton will not only diecus the growing and shipping of hay and the market grades,. bift we will have at each meeting several dim ples of hay and have been him gnfflsT'lt and show the farmers the differences in the grades. .. The prairie section is one of the b.al hay sections in the south and is now shipping large quantities of both John son grass and alfalfa hay. These meet ings will furnish an opportunity f r every grower to study tho grades of hay under an expert, and we feel sure that, the meetings will result in great good to the growers of this section. at Lyceum Theatre WEDNESDAY NIGHT Jan. 20 Jesse L.
