THE WAY TO BUILD IT.
- The Gazette ig glad to note
marked increase in interes
among the people of Magnolia o
the question of providing em
ployment for those of our citizen
who are at irregularly at work a
well as creating a demand fo
labor which will be answered b;
the coming of people to swell ou
population. We hear much tall
of some sort of a manufacturinj
enterprise, and it is a source o
much gratification to us to not'
that some of our most prominen
business men are discussing chi
matter with much earnestness
The necessity of some kind of in
dustry in our town is most keenly
felt. As this paper has time anc
again pointed out, we are de
pending almost solely upon oui
agricultural friends for our trade.
'That this trade i9 fine and flour
ishing does not by any means af
ford an argument against manu
factures. If we desire to have a
town which wil be able to sus
tain itself upon its own popula
tion, then we must provide some
means whereby that population
can feed and clothe itself. To
illustrate: not every boy now
enjoying the advantages of our
public school, will want to be, or
will be fit for a clerk when he
grows to manhood. Yet to our
shame be it said, that is the only
avocation in Magnolia in which a
young man can be assured of
regular employment. It is there
fore inevitable that as these boys
grow to be men they will be
forced to leave the home of their
youth and seek other fields of la
bor. The idea expands itself al
most without limit when we come
to consider it. Given a strong
manufacturing enterprise in our
town and we shall furnish em
ployment to labor which is ours
already, we shall be able to in
vite new citizens to make a home
with us, and the new enterprise
will send a current of new blood
through every artery of oar local
out wnue it is distinctly a step
forward that our people are in
terested in the matter, it is indis
putably true that mere street
talk will not accomplish results.
Street talk is all one-sided; if
defamatory, nothing can hurt a
town more; but all the talk all of
us can do, all talking altogether,
will never result in any actual
benefit unless it is followed up by
ACTING. So we say now let
the t.'dk oe followed by earnest,
concerted action on the part of
our citizens, and we shall most
assuredly attain that which we
It has not been so long ago

Under the caption, “Killed
Her Lover,” the Clarion-Ledger
Hart, a young colored woman
living near Gillsburg, shot her
lover, Milas Magee, with a pistol
which she didn’t know was load

to verify the report, we conclude
this is the same Ella Hart who
shot and killed her lover, Milas
Magee, near Waterhole, in Ma
rion county, a few days prior to
the 15th of February. On that
day ttte Gazette published a full ]
account of the tragedy, which
was obtained from an eye wit
