W. R. Booth. In our announcement column this week appears the name of one of Holmes county's liest, most solid, sub stantial, representative and popular citizens. We refer to W. R. Booth, of Acona, who is a candidate for super visor of Beat 5. That he will, in the event of election, represent his district and the county at large with ability, credit and universal satisfaction is axiomatic. He is a man of energy and push—a genuine hustler—and [kiss esses a practical and thoroughly business mind, so essential to success these strenuous, competitive and hustling times, when the man of action and force is in demand and the passive character is relegated to the rear. Mr. Booth is not only able, but possesses in a rare degree those high God-given qualities characteristic of the gen de man 1 'to the manner born. ' ' All the voters in Beat 5 know him well and will give his claims due and careful consideration. "\ f To the Stockholders of The LAMAR NOTICE MUTUAL Life Insurance Company of Mississippi, and the Inventing Public: A FTER a year of remarkable success, during which time a million and a half of insurance has been written by the Company, the LAMAR MUTUAL Life has arranged to extend its operations into Texas, Oklahoma and other Southern States. tJThe insurance laws of Texas and the other states about to be entered require a capital stock of $100,000, and to meet this requirement and lend strength to the most prosperous Life Insurance Company of the South, the stockholders, on April 6th, 1907, voted to increase the stock and permit the sale of one half the increase at the original price of $100.00 per share, thus permitting such stockholders as desire to increase their holdings to do so on the same basis as their original stock was purchased. Such of the issue as is not sub scribed by the present stockholders will be apportioned to the applicants for stock whose subscriptions are received before the issue is exhausted. FACTS TO BEAR IN MIND The Lamar Mutual life added nine thousand dollars to its surplus during its first year—an example of economical management un equalled in the history of life insurance. The company owns its own Home Office building—one of the most beautiful structures in Mississippi. The Lamar Mutual Life has had but one loss—$2000 on the life of Daniel McKinnon, accidentally killed at Carrière, Miss., and this death claim was paid within twelve hours —the quickest pay ment of a life insurance policy on record. The magnificent and permanent success of The Lamar Mutual Life has been attained as a result of 1st. The best, clearest, least restrictive and most profitable policy issued by any 3 per cent, Legal Reserve Life Insurance Company. 2nd. The lowest premium rate for the b$3t insurance. 3rd. The investment of Mississippi money in Mississippi. The Lamar Mutual Life will always be a Mississippi instituti on but it is no longer a "local" one. Seventy-five bankers and one hundred and fifty of the most conservative business and professional men in Mississippi are the original stockholders of the Lamar Mutual Life. A legal requirement permits you to purchase THE SAME STOCK AT THE SAME PRICE after permanent success has been attained. The monthly business and income of the Company has in creased EVERY MONTH SINCE LAST AUGUST, of insurance has been issued since January 1, 1907. ^ The State of Mississippi stands guard over the investment of The Lamar Mutual Life. The State Treasurer takes charge of the reserve on each policy, thus protecting the interests of policy holder and stockholder alike. Should The Lamar Mutual Life desire to cease writing insur ance today, it could close its books, re-insure its risks with any Legal Reserve Company in America and pay to its stockdolders par value for their stock and A DIVIDEND OF 2f> PER CENT ON THEIR YEAR'S INVESTMENT. Half a million I E VERY intelligent business man knows that to own a block of stock in a successful life insurance company is to possess an investment safe as a Government bond, and with a dividend earning power t-reater than any other legitimate investment. Under the by-laws of The Lamar Mutual Life a dividend of eight per cent per annum may be declared by the stockholders, together with such other dividends from surplus as the Stockholders may from time to time deem advisable. 1 his is the first and last increase of stock ever to be made by The Lamar Mutual Life Insurance Com pany. 1 herefore, it it the last opportunity you will ever have to secure stock in Mississippi's greatest and strongest financial institution.

Dear Sir: If we sell Devoe to paint your town, your road won't have so much freight to handle. It takes 10 gallons to paint a fair size house, and that house won't want painting again for 5 or 10 years. That's true in a way ; but people, you know.rather like fresh paint, and they paint for nothing hut looks sometimes. That house would take 12 or 13 gal lons of almost any other paint than Devoe, and would have to be painted again in hah that time. Ten years is a very long time for a paint to wear ; and five isn't short. Which makes the most freight, a 10 or 20-gallon paint ? 5 or 10 year-paint? But the 10-gallon paint is the 10-year paint ; and the 20-gallon paint is the 5 year paint Which makes the most freight? Ask your paint-dealer which he'd rather sell, and which he could sell most of. Ask your painter which he'd rather paint ; whether good or bad pa'nt is good for his business ; which pays most freight, and most wages. Which will ; self, the 10-gallon 10-year, or 20-gallon 5 year, paint? which pa,s you Imy your Yours truly, F. W. DEVOE & CO. P.

You will raise the point that you have a piano! Our conclusive argument is that we will take it in exchange as part payment on the Auto piano.

If there was any thing askew, wrong or crooked about him, the people would have discovered it long before thirty years, and given him an excursion trip up Salt River.
