To Buy Farms A New Plan for the Young Generation A great many plans have been devised through Building & Loan Associations and Home Building Com panies to supply the demand for homes in cities and towns, but we herewith submit, so far as we know the only plan to supply the young generation of farmers with farms on a basis that the young man with a small income can take advantage of. This plan gives the farmer a chance to increase his holdings in land. By paying $71.57 per year for five years, the Company will lend him One Thousand Dollars, which he can invest in another farm, the rent from which will more than make the future payments. This plan is also one of the bsst and easiest ways for a father to accumulate property for his children as the become of age. Remember back of each of these Bond is a First Mortgage on Real Estate double the value of the Mortgage, besides the Capital of the Great Delta Mortgage Loan & Guaranty Co., then every dollar you invest in these Bonds, on which you are get ting 6 per cent compond interest, is as secure as a Government Bond. If yon are the! administrator of an Estate, and have Trust funds in your possession, you will find our 6 per cent Coupon First Mortgage Trust Bonds is the safest investment you can find. ^ If you have a few dollars that should be growing and working while you sleep, write us today. If you have a farm you want to improve and want to borrow a few thousand dollars for five or ten years, and live in Holmes or Attala Counties, Miss ., Call on Dr. H. W. Turnipseed at Tehula, Miss. THE PLAN For each Thousand Dollars you wish to put m a farm, vou buy one of our Thousand Dollars First Mortgage Accumulative Bonds, for which you pay us $71.57 per annum for ten years, at the end of five years, or when you have paid six payments, \ve will lend you One Thousand Dollars, or buy you a farm to this amount. You secure the Loan with a Mort gage on the farm, and at the end of ten years, when you have completed payment for your Bond, it will be sufficient to liquidate the indebtndness, and your farm will be free. This One Thousand Dollar Bond will have cost you $715.70. Great Delta Mortgage Loan & Guaranty Co., Jackson, Miss. 1. 2. MR. ALEXANCER'S CHANCE8. Bon. C. H. Alexander, one of the candidates for United States senator, is daily gaining supporters throughout the state, and his friends are greatly encouraged over bis prospects of suc-^ He has made more than 250 cess. speeches since the opening of the cam paign, most of them in country pre cincts. and they have been most fa Hie ad vorably commented tipon. dresses are dean, logical, strong and stamp him as one of the ablest men His friends claim that in the state, he is constantly adding to his list of supporters and that he will be one of the two selected to contest in the sec ond primary, in which event they be lieve he will have no trouble in se curing enough votes to name him as the candidate of the Democracy of the state of Mississippi for the high and exalted position of United States sen ator. Should the prophesies of his friends prove true, the people of the state can reBt assured that they will have in Mr. Alexander, a man who will meaB up in every particular to the standard of a statesman, and one that will reflect credit upon the state and the people who, by> their suffrage, have chosen him to represent them in the highest deliberative body in the world. —Clarion-Ledger. ure Glendower— Vardaman was in fine fettle at Newman's Grove until Pri vate John Allen unexpectedly seated himself neat the distinguished speaker, The extinguishment of the declaimer was not contemplated by the appari tion.

NEWMAN'S GROVE INCIDENT. Glendower—I can call spirits from the vasty deep. Hotspur—Why. so can I, or so can any man ; hut will they come when you do call for them? Glendower—Yes, my dear Hotspur, they will come, when Vardanian comes to engage in joint debate with Percy and Alexander, ' or to face bis old friend und visitor, "Private" John Allen at Newman's Grove. 3. The miscellaneous killing of birds ought to be stopped. It is a pleasant pastime with boys to kill or injure birds and to break up.birds' nests. The boys ouebt to bn taught better Birds ' are destroyers of insects, without them insects would become so numerous that it would be impossible to grow any kind of crop. Birds net onlv de stroy insects but they destroy weeds and grass, eat all kinds of weed and grass weeds. Old Bob White is a great friend to the farmer. He is not onlv useful on a farm but he is a thing of beautr. Did vou ever see him flv upon a stump, look over the bv N. an. on the in of in i Bank of Holmes County First and Oldest Established Bank in Holmes County, Miss.

J field, brace himself and sing out 'Bob White /" Bob White is an everlasting enemv to all injurious insects. He has an inexhaustible appetite for worm and bus; such as lice,cut worms, potato beetles, grasshoppers,flies, mos quitoes, boll weevils; he likes just any kind of a bug tell us that but for the birds this old world would *be literally eaten up by worms and hugs. That it would be impossible to grow any kind of a crop, and that man oweB bis existence to the tirds. The boy who kills a bird does an unmanly thing and makes it harder for the human race to make a living. A law protecting our birds would be a blessing to the entire coun try. The farmers ouebt to see to it that the birds are nrotected on their lands, the farmers' rights should pre vail over the hunters' wishes. Protect Bob White and he will pav vou for vour trouble. —Bay Springs News. Tho scientists Hon. C fl. Alexander, at the cordial p Holmes coun ted to deliver invitations of friend tv, has cheerfully i three addresses in | row, one at Tolarvi^ and one at Bowlini o'clock and at Wee county tomor at 10 o'clock Ireeu at 4:00 It night. Mr. nucceptionally Alexander has made fine record during the nresent cam paign, making from one to three speecbos per day, and at every point he has spoken he has gained a large number of friends. He is one of the cleanest men in political life in the world today, and the worst "charge" that his bitterest opponents can bring against him is that he is "pious"—a charge, by the wav, that any man would be proud to acknowledge to We bespeak for him a most courteous bearing in tnose splendid neighbor hoods of our county, Encouraging reports from all over the county arc com in" in every day to the effect that the people are chancing from one candidate to another; that Percy and Alexander are both gaining strength and Vardaman. on the con trary, is losing votes and not making any new votes, owing to the fact that he has utterly failed to show upacleao political record, and. the people of Ydzoo demand this from him or any other candidate running for office. The people, knowing that Vardaman de frauded Caldwell and Taylor of this ountv.Klng of Leflore, and McCaulla, of Grenada, besides the state and her institutions out of several thousand dollars, will never support a man of so small caliber tor the United States Yazoo always does things time. —Yazoo senate, right at the proper County News._ New An amateur philologist in York has unraveled the derivation of the principal word in the American Dope" means vocabulary, "dope " ideas of any kind—predictions of ie sults in sporting events, or a lawyer's argumentative material, or any intel "Dope" lectual method whatsoever, is a contraction of the phrase.

This used to be the ques tion asked by the Chinese proprietor of the opium joints in San Francisco. "Dope" came to mean the fancies that would come to the man dreaming under the influence of opium, aDd, finally, to mean any material—conjec ture. aigument or opinion. The recent episode between J. J. Henry and Senator Bilbo will in no manner help the latter in his political aspiratiens. The publication of the vile language he used, which caused Mr. Heurv to take the action he did, has greatly diminished the sympathy at first expressed for Bilbo, and is caily losing him supporters It is po wonder that Hon, T. C. Lowrv, of Blue Mountain, strongly protested at the time it was used and refused to send it to the papers of which he was correspondent. The later developments, however, compelled its publication. The expression, according to Mr. Ross Collins' statement, was culled from Braun's Iconoclast, and as all remem her, W. C. Braun paid the penatly of death for his intemperate utterances. Onlv a couple of weeks more and the political tension will be relaxed and the issue oetween Vardamanrsm and anti Vardamanism definitely settled. It will not require two primaries to do so. If Vardaman teceievs a majo rity over both ais contestants in the first, he is perforce elected But if he goes in the second primary, ho is ir retrievably defeated, it matters not whether it be Percy or Alexander againts whom he mav be pitted And all present indications point to a second primary. The suit for criminal libel instituted bv Hon. J. M. Allen against Editor N. P. Bonuev, of the Daily Corinthi an. resulted in an acquittal of Mr. Bonnev. It appears that while Mr. Allen was proven guiltless* of the charge, there was no malice shown on the part of the editor in publishing the matter complained of. The f bis tory of libel suits against newspapers in the United States shows that a very small proportion of them are sus tained. __ Vardaman says he was the victim of that rotton secret caucus, says the Bay Springs News. Yes, he was a victim cf the rotten primary election four years ago. He has been a victim about four times before the people No election has been honest that has not elected Vaidaman.
