"POSSIBLE SOLDIER * CANDIDATES" 01 PS Under the above caption, the Clai ion-Ledger of December 7th discuss ed the probabilities of a soldier can didate for Governor. The names of Hons. John Sheffield, Oscar Johnston and our Senator, now Captain, J. Aj Blount were mentioned. Of Captain Blount the Clarion-Ledger had the following: "Then th ; , , . , is another legislator, or r>, . i rathtir ex-legislator—Senator blount i u»f Grenada county. He served during; * . The session of 1916, and proved j oMe ami intelligent memi.er, and was a credit to the State. W hen war was I candidate for Governoi, and when e, his fri encU ( him to enter the , ^ ' declared between the United States • and 'Germany, Senator Blount Fe -sk^ed his seat in the Senate and en He was among the first of! to go to listed. Mississippi soldiers the France, and has given a good account of himself on the Western front. He possible as a is atso being mentioned from over seas i eturns hvyv tc induce nratscniil race. e are other gubernatorial pos >31)ties among the Mississippi hoys donned the khaki, will appear from time to time Meanwhile, the "Tie and their \ i '.O nines columns, e will suffice for the present." fhe , .it f rL behalf of Capt. The Sentinel, on Blount and his legions of friends not in Grenada county but all over only this section, heartily appreciates the iment paid him by our esteemed comp Jackson contemporary. The Clarion-Ledger is mistaken in its statement as to the length of time Capt. Blount has been in France, hovv , the fact that he was not there He was ever earlier is no fault of his. Only a little more than a ready. month after hostilities were declared, Capt. Blount was among many others from Grenada county to volunteer. The Government saw fit to use him elsewhere, hence he was just as much 1 | j in the war as the man actually on the j j ward and laid their all upon their, country's altar whether they were The men who went for filing line. j dispatched to the front or not, are ^ entitled to all the honors of war— | they were ready. Of course the wounded n action should come firtt, but the others are alf alike entitled to the gratitude of their countrymen.) \\ e are sure that Capt. Blount has, not thought of being a candidate : for Govmor, but if he should enter, the race he would give a good account of himself. He would make the state He is highly edu a goftwi executive, cated, a good lawyer and in every respect an A-l man. We are sure that our soldier boys are too wise and too patriotic to offer one of their Humber for this great office who is not in every way qualified. They Would want the man placed in there as representing them to be in every respect qualified to reflect honor on them and on the state, Whether Blount, Johnston, or Sheffield or any other soldier runs for governor or not, you may bet your bottom dollar that the soldier boys are going to wield a most po tent influence in saying who shall be Governor. Mark *1* (down. \W* have already heard one of the state s leading and best men, and a man name has been prom whose inently connected with the next gubernatorial race, say, "It is well The soldier boys may have to wait. a candidate, and if they, have, they are have it. entitled to preference 'and will ft WALKER WOOD REGISTERS A KICK The press of Mississippi has no doubt not fared any worse than the press of other states during the past two years, excpt the most of the of Mississippi had less There can be no de newspapers forage ahead, that the newspapers, and bate in especially the county newspapers have caught what Paddy gave the drum. , They have been taxed as never be fore; their postage rates have been limitations sundry placed on their manage »nt that would almost make the increased ant have been m . there can be no free riding on! most pious parson cuss at tames. O.i top of all this, the Government has ridden the press for more free advertising than could be counted by forty eleven dozen of the best mathematicians in Christendom. Oh, no the trains, or free letters sent thru the mails, except by the government itself, yet everybody rides the press and the Government has been join ing in the riding act. There has not been a mail for months which did not bring some thing-from some war agency for pub lication. Those at headquarters in Mississippi have many times sent three or four copies of the same thing, and this, too, notwithstanding the Government was forcing all sorts °f paper conservation -on the press, if »•« ik These agencies have been prolinealty , _- ^ profligate in their demands for free spat . e yet when they have had a mat . ^ f<jr (he jobbinf , dcpartment of the papr«, they have too often over looked the country newspaper. Only a few r days ago, the United War Work campaign at headquarters gave a job printing office an order for fifteen thousand letter heads with out even giving a country newspaper a chance to bid on the job. This is only one of the many instances. The j p Vegg j g ^j ref j 0 f this sort of stuff,) jj j s s0 busted tired, that! . 1 Id i I | t is going to stop free advertising.

There is no' agency or business that has done so t | i ments. mtic h to reach the public, then those v.-ho are asking these favors should when willingly come' across nave some ; lo much free work during the past eigh teen months as the press, and done it willingly to WIN THE WAR. What j j I high up's" show when they common j and it is up to the press to save t STINGS the press is the indifference for the PRESS JOB DEPARTMENT that the have a job of work to give out that •» is to he paid for in real money. Free advertising has bcome very self against this destructive force, The above is taken from the edi toj-ial columns of The Winona Times of last week which is presided over ^j la ^ splendid citizen and practi cal newspaper man, Hon^ Walker Wood.

Many people have a mistaken idea that because of war milling regulations, all flours are alike in quality. This is not true. The mills can use any quality of wheat they are willing to pay for. We pay premium prices to get the highest grade wheat for Valier'a flour. We make it by the same thorough, slow milling methods for which Valier's mills have been famous for half a century. As a result Valier's flour is the very highest grade white flour milled and glve3 the best baking results. The price of Valier's Hour is regulated by the Government. It's more econom ical than ordinary flour, because it makes more successful baking and lighter, whiter . finer flavored biscuits, cake, etc. Ask your grocer for this super-grade flour. < c f* 1 VALI ER'S i ICN1C % I jggsi ¥ - (It •10: 'J*. 70) * If «ANur*civiteo rson •ELECTED WlffTIR WHEAT or best avAUTY A \ ZL SELF RISING FLOUR The war ie won!
