'The ladies' organizations of Gre
nada, tho Civk League and the Wed
nesday Study Club, had the honor this
week to entertain their sister clubs
of the Fourth district, or rather the
Federated Clubs of the Fourth district,
.The men have been having iheir meets;
m the way of (^inventions end other
kindred meets, b^t the public had
Jnsl as well get ready now to see the
ladies meeting to discuss matters that I
pertain not only to their sex but which
are vital to Ju* welfare of all. ;
It is perhaps not amiss to say that
the word "federation" or "federated,"
means the cooperation or working to
m 8 p ther for the same end of the differ
ent organizations which women have,
for some time been perpetuating. In
Grenada, for example, the. Civic
League and the Wednesday Study (
Club both had representatives in the (
Federation meet. I
The meetings were held over the
Grenada Bank, and. by the way, it
«ight be observed that but for the
generosity and public spirit of the
bank, some things which come to
Grenada would possibly go elsewhere,
and those which do come here might
embarrass the local citizenship some
times about entertainment. Mrs. W.
H. Price, president, of Carrollton, pre
sided and showed herself to be quite
a skilful! and expert presiding officer.
The address of welcome was made by
Mrs. J. C. "air, president of the Gre
oada Wednesday Study Club, which
was appropriately responded *0 by 1
Mrs. W. J. Nelson of Goodman. 1
At the evening session, a very in-j
teresting and comprehensive address'
was made by Mrs. Sam Covington of
Hailehurfit. president of the State
^federation. Mrs. Covington's address
touched upon a number of important
natters. In the afternoon she bad
already gone on record for a millage
tax for th ? state colleges and at the
evening session she again referred to
that and stated that she thought that
the colleges should be taken out of the
hands oi the politicians, who, she
soemed to think, are too prominent in
hutting in on the affairs of these
institutions, bhe insisted that steps
should he taken to righten the in jus
tice which cultured women ia Missis- "
sippi and elsewhere are suffering by
not being paid as much men no tr\
ter equips! ar^ pad rar the saun
service. Mrs. Covington had quite a

morning the following resolutions
were passed pleading with the board
for a reoon side ration of the order to
disc ontinue the work. It will be noted
that there is a veiled hint at what the
women will do touching such matters to
in the nett, county election. .

The Federation made a fine iiupree
sion on Grenada not only for what the
ladies stand for but for the dignity
and the clearness with which they die
cussed the matters brought before
them. There was a commendable
spirit of conservatism, yet the conver
tion gave unmistakable evidence or
well digested ideas about public mat
ters. When political issues were re
ferred to, and the women were urged
the to post themselves on public mbtters.
h was rather amusingly stated that
they would not have to do a. very
great deal of informing to learn these
matters about as well as the average
man. ** .
I The Federation expressed the very
greatest satisfaction with the enter
; tainment given them by Grenada and
like everybody who visits the "City
Beautiful." the visitors were indeed
to- complimentary of the beauty and
cleanliness *of the town.

tinue. The members of the board
spoke very highly of the work and . g
those who voted to discontinue"it
stated that they did so only because "
of the distressing condition of the SA
County's finances. A delegation of ?
ladies appeared before the supervisors
and earnestly plead with the board to
continue the work. The ladies said
they were making the plea not for
those doing the work but for those past
whom the work was being done,
the unfortunate children of the Coun- g j
ty and the motherhood of thq Coun- g
ty, but the plea of the women fell it
upon deaf ears so far as the three tke

The city council this week finished '
the equalization of the tax hooks of
the city and made the tax levy for the
the fiscal year. The total levy is 28 mills*
eleven mills of which are for .the
die- schools. The levy for general fund is
6 mills, schools 11 mills, old bond tax
6 mills, and new bond issue tax 5
or The board of supervisors on Tues
mat- day afternoon made the tax levy for
re- Grenada county for the fiscal year,
The total levy which will be paid by
the five districts of the county is 29
mills, divided as follows: General
fund 4, road and bridges 3 mills, school
fund l'i loan warrants and interest
jinking fund 3, and for state pur
: poses 9 mills, to which will be added
in all the districts save District 5, 6i
mills for roads.
In addition to the 29 mills above,
the Gore Springs school district, in
Beat 2, will pay S 1 * mills for main
tenance of schools and 4 mills for bond
.tax. The levy for roads in District 5
, fe only 3 mills, but the Holcomb con
; ? olidated sch001 Strict will pay 5
E mills for maintenance of school and
2 mills tor bond tax. Tie Plant school
j district will' pay i mills for main
tenance of school. Thus it will be
seen, for example, that the levy for ail
in purposes on the taxpayers outside of
separate school districts in District 1.
will pay on a levy of 35 mills. In
District 5, Holcomb school district, the
total levy is 39 mills. .
I A road tax of $5.00 was levied on of
in persons in the county outside of Gre
nada who are subject to road duty.
I Now perhaps the first thing that
will pop up in the minds of some cit
izens, will be to "cuss'* the board of
supervisors. This paper expects that
j when the members of that body take on
a retrospect and see some of the
things that they have done, that they j
will feel like "cussing" themselves a i u
'little, but it is nut right, «t is not just
to the supervisors to lay the blame
for the big tax levy on the board. That
1 body has done largely what the people M
w ho - elected the members wanted
I done. The people have been asking
| a great deal at the hands of the super
visors. Why the people in some cases be
have been in such haste to have work
done, that even bridges havr» tictm
out where the contract ran up into
sevt i-al thousand dollars without an
advertisement for bids—in ietting out rec
these contracts, the board was acting i
on the urgent demands of taxpayers. 0l
so the big county debt and the big tax
levy is the fruit of the people's sow
ing. i he pa -1 tew years iiate be u

of ada'g most prominent citizens in the
the person of Mr. W. 3. Hof/a, ba.s fallen
into the hands of a Sentinel represent-:
.the ativa and is being published at this
is time without Mr. Hoffa's knowledge:
tax William Brand Hoffa of Grenada,
5 Mississippi, was born at "Auvergne"
plantation in the western portion of
Grenada county., Mississippi, May 27,
for HM»7, on the north side of the Yalo- J
bttsha river, near what was then Tus
by qahouaa and ChoccJiuma leiri- s. '
29 Ills- father, J. M. Hoffa. was bom
in Braver County, Pa. His father*
father-game to Pennsylvania in 172".,
and was of the Reed, McNair and Me
pur- Knight stock,, all of whom were prom-jada's
input factors in Colonial days.
6i Hi$ mother, .Elizabeth Donelaon Alar
ilin. Was bom in the Bame home where j
Mr. Hofla first saw the light of day
in in lk$4, and was a grand-niece of
General Andrew Jackson and a daugh- j
ter <rf Col. W. G. Martin, who came j
5 to iEg&iasippi in 1833 and settled on !
the plantation where, his daughter,
5 Elizifbet h, was born and which the
subject of this sketch still owns. The
correspondence between Gen. Jackson |
and Col, Martin shows that the two
be men were on very Intimate terms and
ail reveals the fact that the General very
of frequently consulted Col. Martin, es
1. peciftlly as regards business matters.
In Col. Martin was secretary to General
Jackson in the Xatchez campaign. He
jwas aide to Gen. Coffee in the battle
of New Orleans, Jan. 9, 1S15. Gen.
Jackson placed him in charge «f the
land office with headquarters at what
wa> then Choechuma, a town that
novel Exists only in memory.
of Mr, Hoffa's forbears came , from
Colonial and Revolutionary stock, and
on his mother's side were of Scotch
Irish and of Scotch-Welsh descent,
j Lineage plays a- very great part
a i u shuping' the destinies of all
kind, but oftentimes men
grow careless about what they owe'
the name they bear. But not so with '
M r Hoffa. Fie dpes not immodestly
intrude these matters ou bis friends
and acquaintances, yet there is a
beamy and a pathos about the way
be expresses himself about his fore
that shows that the Biblical

Mr . H offa comes from a long line
„t Presbytertana lh bm ear^ man
sTh a
Knights Templar and a Shriner. but
best of all a good citizen and on up
r jgbt man, thoroughly alive to every
work. It has been his dream
4or yea rs that Grenada should^
come a real city, certainly a city that
would measure up with the larger
cltiM of the state. He has dreamed
and WO rked for Grenada's growth and
development; likewise has he talked
and worked for Grenada's awakening,
and be it said to his , credit that his
efforts have borne good frujt. His
ioyahy to his home town has been
one of h is very disUnguishing traits
a nd so marked llks this been that on
many occasions some of his. very best
friends have thought that he carried
his loyalty to the point where he not
only sacrificed himself but suffered,
He has owned for a number of years
large timber interests some twenty
miles west of Grenada, had while
he has on numerous occasions had
very flattering offers from would-be
deeply imbedded in his id
He has shown that he
a serious responsibility
man -1
seem to.
(tarcaasers, no deal was consummated
tor the reason that tha would-be buy
Gren ers would not agree to locate their
the ! milling plant to work up the timber
fallen j in Grenada. When he did sell, only a
few months ago, the deed covering
this I the sale provided for the location of
'a mill in Grenada and fixed a pen-j
laity for the failure to place the plant'
j here.
of ; As a promoter, as one ever watch
27, ful for what he thought would benefit
Yalo- J the community, as one whose faith in
Tus his home town has bordered closely
' on the sublime, Mr. Hoffa stands out
bom pre-eminently as Grenada's first cit
izen. He has bee if one of the leaders,
172"., oftentimes the leader, in every move
Me- meat of the last 20 years for Gren
prom-jada's betterment. He has had a for
ward view, of conditions and has la
Alar- bored as if he thought the future lux
j ury of good deeds and prosperity de
day pended upon the results of what he
of did for Grenada and for Grenada
j county. And to his credit it should i
came j be stated that his vision has not stop-1
on ! pod at county lines, but the Star ofl
his state has had him seriously think
the ling about its pathway.
The As a partial proof of what 1s above
