VERMEER, GREENWOOD, MISS. General Agent State of Mississippi. J i o o a About Redistricting the County. Editor Advertiser: Please allow me space in the columns of vour valuable paper to say a few words in regard to the redistricting ot I don't challenge the Holmes county, right of the Board of Supervisors in doing what they did as they acted un der an act of the legislature, but I do challenge the right of the legislature in passing a law to oust a man from office after he had been duly elected by the voters of his beat before this law was even passed. It is more than our state constitutional convention dared to do, knowing it was unconsti tutional to take from a man his just and legal rights If the legislature had passed some act to compensate the outgoing supervisor it would have been a little more humane. I don't blame the voters in the Delta portion of Beat 4 for wanting a divi represented sion, as they never were on the board but once that 1 know of, and that was Phil Cox, a wealthy planter on Bee Lake. Mr. Editor, I nave been identified ith those Delta people nearly forty ears.although all of my old associates ave passed away—only two or three remain, my old friends, Dr. Thornton and Bill Warmack-still I feel an terest in the rising generation, tween the years of 1875 and 1889 the voters of Beat 4 honored me by elect ing me four times for supervisor, seerving eight years, and why should old age remember the 1 i I in Be I not now in my past and wish them unbounded success in all their laudable pursuits. As there is a supervisor to be elected for the Delta portion of Beat 4, I beg pardon, and don't think me too pre sumptuous in saying a few words in regard to the qualifications of the man for the office, (I have heard that some of those little fellows over there are talking about running now) if so turn them down; you want a man with broad mind and brain,a full knowledge of all business matters, a man that can have some influence with his fel low-members; he should be especially good financier, for I give you my word for it, Holmes county was ever in need of one worse than at this pres entjtime to save our county from be coming bankrupt. I would suggest the names of the following gentlemen:, R. M ^ Ed wards, Wm. Warmack, Dr. C. C. Thornton, W. W. Perry and Squire Hosmer. W. W. LUNSFORD. Lexington, February 12, 1913. a How Vastly Wonderful. Oh, what a mistake we make when we attempt to shackle the mind and hold it within the realms of every day facts and hedge and circumscribe our thinking powers within the radius marked by the cold hand of Reason! The man who can't sometimes think beyond possibilities is doomed to live between the barren hills of a prosaic and uneventful life and dying shall be returned again to the restful clay un noted and unknown. Looking back ward upon past achievements we can behold the intellectual mind borrowing from Fancy her richest and rarest gifts and stretching forth his hands grasps from Nature her century hidden secrets and as a result out yonder upon the boisterous waves the crashing spark sends out the terror stricken cry for help. He stretched from country to country, from continent to continent the (network of wires and touching them with the magician wand as it were, gifted them with speech. He guides, with unerring hand, the sur geon's knife and saves life and allevi ates pain. He delves in the very bow els of the earth and brings forth the wonderful mineral that aids him in gazing at the wonderful sight of the throbbing human heart. He brings the unknown worlds around us into plain view and studies them at leisure. He tells us of approaching storms and tidal waves. He makes of our nation a big neighborhood and sends us through the country at the rate of twenty-five miles per hour. He allows his great mind to think out small de tails and brings the house wife's wa ter to the kitchen. He starts the fire, lights the lamps, sweeps and dusts the rooms, washes and launders the clothes and runs errands. He stands upon the mountain,, and, looking out upon the arid wastes of the sun-baked desert, his heart is movedgand he sends into the barren land an abundance of rains and it becomes a blossoming garden He catches the rays of the sun and energizes them and in response to his commands they turn the wheels of his machinery. He mixes the paints upon the pallette and transfers them to the canvas and, lo! the pigments blend to gether and speak out of the life like pictures—a call to better and greater j things and our better selves, in re sponse, struggles upward ever. He grasps the chisel and the mallet and j carves from the cold, pulseless marble | a wonderful being that enthuses the j soul and k appealing to our sympathies causes us sometimes to drop a Lear , unashamed. How wonderful oh, how j vastly wonderful is the God-given j power of the mind—imagination! S. S. 1 Artificial Light and Heat. A week or two ago (after a fashion) I introduced this subject to readers of the Advertiser, and in my judgment, such are the importance and possibili ties of the situations I venture a re turn to it. To the most thoughtless it must be evident that other sources for supply ing heat and light must be sought be cause in a few years the situation will have become acute. Within the last two or three days an article in the "Country Gentleman has come under my observation, which, in all respects, justifies my claims. The writer gives details as to cost and construction of small electric plants suitable for a farm, and emphasizes teh cheapness and convenience of the use of electricity. His estima*e is that it saves the labor of one farm h nd and costs less to install than a year's wage of said laborer, consideration is this mode of eating and lighting is in the interest of clean liness, and this is a consideration not to be despised. What is the farmers' union for? I see no reason why the Farmers' Union could not install a plant on the bluff, stretch wires on public roads and give all an opportu nity to use elctricity or gas. I know people are slow to try new tricks and generally wait to be shown, and this is just what I am suggesting. As soon as they realize the advantage of the new plans over the old they will "catch on' not only metaphorically but literally. The great necessity of the time is that children he inerested in farm life and I see no better way thaij) to make country homes attractive. With homes nicely heated and lighted and good roads, to say the least of it, country life would be more desirable. H. A. GILLIAM. Another Notice to Money Lenders.
