W see in tills age Of progress that nieti in all the dill'ereut walks of lil'u liud it to their interest to be united in "nine kind of organization, the power of many of these organizations is well known. And while those Interested in agricul ture number over one-half of the entire population of tills oouuty, yet it is to effect any organization that ha made itself felt or that ha nccoinplixhcd much good. Hut let us not dcxpnir, it is only by well-directed and persistent etl'oi U that success ran be hoped for. That there is need of such an organization and that results can bo attained Unit will bo of great benefit to the funnels, is patent lo everyone.

And to do our part in creating legislative sentimeut for a substituted and effective method of securing values, we w ill continue to agitate the matter; and present proof of the condemnation we have so often expressed, of the prevailing assessment of properties. During the pad four years there ha been much said of the progress and increase in value in the State. It manufactories, banking capital, dairy and stock raising industries, have cer tainly been largely added to. Its rail road mileage has been materially In creased; and tho numbcrlcs conve nience and utilization of resource fob low ing in the train of th! achievement have notbeeea wanting. Our town have grown more In this than any other period since the war. Mississippi is lieyond all else howover, more strict ly perhnp than any other, an agricul tural itate, And for real and general accretion to Its wealth and property we must look to and Investigate this follow iug of its citizens. And, ai h ast so far as tho Delta is roucurued, there has undoubtedly been Increase of laud values, Improvement and production, reduction of debt and a nearer ap proach to general prosperity, largely more plantation are self sustaining, produce their own supplies of grain and hay, than formerly.
