A Number of Pupils of the Greenville Public- School Write Their Views-The Cotton Boll Their Preference. As tho question, what shall be the stato flower for our state, has presented uaeu w us, It has been suggested bv Colonel Powell, secretary of state, that the flower should be either thn lia, tho narcissus, or the chrysanthe mum. Colonel Powell thinks would be preferable, because it erows wild in the stato, also for the reason that tho magnolia could be used in dec oration and could represent the state elsewhere very well. I do not agree with the centlcraan on this point; it has been suggested by one of my classmates, and I had thought Of it also, that the cotton hnll Rhnnlrl be selected as the state flower. I do not tnink the chrysanthemum would oe preferablejbecause it is the national flower of Japan. I do not think the narcissus would be preferable, for it could only be obtained for a few months in tho spring. I do not think the magnolia would be preferable, be cause it grows much wilder and stays in bloom longer in other states, for in stance Florida. I think the cotton boll would better represent the state, because Mississippi is known the world over for its cotton production; again, because the open cotton boll could easily be saved and be kept in use all the year. For our state flower I suggest that we have the magnolia, as it can be got ten by almost every one in the state, where it grows wild and plentiful. As for its beauty, you cannot find a flower that is more beautiful than the magnolia. Though it is white, it is rich in color. We want a white flow er, as an emblem of purity, as our state should bo. We hone it is as Dure as the flowers that grow In It." ll is Irue that It is large and rather stiff, but haven't other states flowers that are just as large, and if we wish to wear our flower we can have little pins made to wear. The magnolia is very beautiful when it .is in art, and it is very nice to decorate with. It is true that it is easily bruised, but we should be the more careful with it. Of course we do not all agree, but I have just suggested this. What more appropriate state Dower could we choose than the beautiful magnolia, which grows luxuriantly on the soil of our loved Mississippi. The tree has a large body and furnishes cool, refreshing shade. Tho leaves are of a dark green color and have a smooth surface. The bloom is white and sends forth a most delightful fra grance 1 It should then be called the emblem of purity. It will not grow in tho North unless well protected from the cold. Our climate suits its growth. Let the lovely magnolia then be our choicd, the state flower of Mississippi. The reason I want cotton for the state flower is because some of the clothes are made out of cotton, as uro a great many other tilings. Some night when you are in bed asleep and wake up with the toothache, and there is no dentist's ofllce open: how are you going to make it stop ach ing? Why, jusj, take some cotton and oil of cloves and it will stop for tho night. Don't tell mc! Of course I say cotton. ' As Iabelieve it is the question of the hour, what Mississippi's stato flower should be, I would like to auk some questions, and give some reasons, for thinking the cotton boll to be a most admirable one. Where else in the universe is cotton raised so extensively as in Mississippi? What people depend upon It so much as we do? It is our meat and bread; our labor In fact, our life. If the crops in cotton fail, we fail. During all the past years, since the Civil war, we have been especially noted for cottbn. When we are away from home, and see cotton, It certainly reminds us of the South and Missis sippi. Whereas, should we see a magnolia or chrysanthemum, we would not be so reminded of either. We would like for foreigners, that is, people of other states, to think of us In connection with cotton, for nothing is prettier, purer or stronger. At conventions, whloh, I believe, we frequently hold, we would, I am sure, and cotton a most serviceaoie emblem, or badge; while the magnolia would darken, as soon as bruised the least bit. Another thing, right here, should we want a scarfpin, or neckpin, of our flower, Canada nas ot ner mapie- leaf, what would be prettier than cot ton bolls, enameled white and green? There is no reason, that I can see, why these other flowers should ''hold a candle" to the cotton boll. This is the True Old Story. MiiTnTii u NE'S good qJities sic sc.-uttkx not discovered imt'il it & tco lx2, Many people form an j riaioa ih&t U the only place to Tbay is the place which h they have Tbeen acccstomed to visit year in and year out. How can any one learn any thing of the world if they do not feel dis posed to prospect? We have often heard people say that so and so have the finest ; goods. How can they Jdge what other : folks are offering if- they never look and ex amine. Such opinions and errors of this sort remind one of, a city which is com pleted and which never desires to improve. Yet, how funny it would appear if one was to see such a sight, and how funny it must be if one considers and gives thought to such peculiar remarks. If one desires to secure education one must apply himself and learn from people who have received an educational train ing. It is the same old story in buying. If one desires to glean information of what others have for sale they must inspect and see whether any improvements have been made in the various styles of goods. , , , , It may seem peculiar, yet we received a very clever compliment from a visitor, who hailed from a city nearly thirteen times as-large 'as this prosperous city, and who stated freely that our prices were more reasonable than they were in her own home. This may appear strange to the reader Yet every word is true. Where have you ever seen such values? Be fust and reasonable and you can compare values.

Tho slack of the Light aofi Power C. is finished and from next week on there will be no need for -complaint against tho light service, as it will be up to all needs. The fire alarms have grown so weak that if it was not for seeing the people running or tha fire wagon rat one would never know a fire was in progress. The alarms should receive attention Mr. Dan McLean, the big, jolly, whole-souled street supervisor, is wear ing large smiles this week and going hnmeat sundown. Everbody is ask ing what is the matter Don't tell any anyone "you heard what we said," but it's a boy. A huntinsr oartv of Keutuckians is on Lake Chicot, hunting and fishing, Mr. J. G.

We found hiin to be a very olever "Col.". A medicine man, with a rainbow colored umbrella has struck town. He opened up last Saturday end sold the snnnlv he took out with him In less than an hour. He is a talker and soon has his colored hearers feeling as though they have the disease he tells of and, at the same time, reaching for their cash to buy a bottle. Mr. Herbert Hirsch is a living ex ample of what a young man can do who has a level head, vim and push. About a month ago he started a market which today is laden down with all kinds of meat and a trade which is second to none in the city. He. keeps everything that is nice, and you can rest assured when you order from him that you will .rat. what vou send for. He has The Times' best wishes. Mr. Horner, the dry goods salesman and ad. writer at the Golden Eagle, is winning fame for himself in our city. He has not only shown Mr. Haftcr, the business proprietor of the Eagle,, that systematic advertising will do as a means of Increasing trade, which means ball to rolling all over the city. Ad vertising in Greenville is lower than any town of its size in the South, aud there is no merchant but what can of-, ford to run an ad. in the papers of our city, and to keep up a good, wide-awake press, should do it.

We can, nine times out of ten, give you as good work as you buy away at an increased price. But you say you would give your print ing to your home man but he can't do lithograph work. This may be true, but what do you need so expensive work for; is not a neatly printed letter head, on good paper, tasty enough to send out to anyone, and you must re member in buying this kind from your own city print shop the money finds its way back to your till, whon all you send away for stationery never gets back at all. It is trne there is somo printing, such as blank books, that your home shop cai't do, and you should order elsewhere; but whon it comes to c ommercial stationery,' note, letter or bill-heads, envelopes, blanks, roceipt books, posters, etc, they should have it and every dollar you send out of the city for such you are robbing cir culation of that much.
