JOHN E. RANKIN for re-election to Congress from the First Congressional District of Mh Hinyipiii. subject to the action of the Democratic party. FOR CIRCUIT JUDGE. First Judicial District, HON. JOHN H. MITCHELL, of Pontotoc County. FntrtT Judicial Dhtrict, HON. C. P. LONG, of Lee County. Just a few of the old veterans who brayed the rough times of the 60's assembled in Starkville Easter Sunday, according to a custom that has been in vogue among the old soldiers of Oktib beha county for several years past. Each year their number will become fewer until within a score or more years there will be none left to continue this beau tiful custom. "Hate" is the title of a pamph let that has been sent out by the H. D. Stephens committee as a campaign document. The pam phlet contains criticisms which Yard iman's Weekly has made of the Wilson administration. The impression is sought to be made that these criticisms were actu ated by personal hatred of Mr. Wilson as it was indulged in by ex-Senator Vardaman. The criticisms were given publicity through the columns of Varda man's Weekly, and it would seem that Mr. Stephens is strengthening t h e Vardaman cause by giv ing them wider pub licity. The suit against Gov. Ku3?ell filed in the J;u k?on Division of the Fed eral Court by Mis Birkhead for alleged seduction wan thrown out itf the court by Judge Edwin Holmes for want of jurisdiction. Tuesday. Gifv. Ilu-ell claimed citizenship at Oxford in the Northern District of the state. Many think the case will be dropped, as it is alleged the suit was instituted to injure the governor politically and to inlluence legislation that he opposed in the interest of the trusts. The trusts failed to get the legislation they de sired. The governor has not been injured politically, and now every body devoutly hopes the scandal ous proceedings art at an end, be cause the people desire only equita ble laws as between them and the trusts and the fair name of their strtte not to be smirched through dark schemes of unscrupulous poli ticians. Just to Remind You. On "Mothers' Day" last year one of our forgetful girls received a silent reproof when the llorist delivered to her mother a box of lovely ferns and phints with the cards of two of the girls best friends motherless girls, by the way. We who are so fortunate aa to have mother with us should need no re minder to send her an offering of posies on Mothers' Day. She will appreciate flowers, but don't you stop with the things that money can buy. 'Much more precious to her mother's heart are those little ex pressions of affection witch oannot be measured in dollars and cents. Slip your arms around her neck and with her cheek to yours, tell her that she is the dearest, sweetest, best mother in all the world. You may write that on her tombstone later, but she would rather hear you fay it now. Don't forget that May 14th is Mother's Day. I. C. Magazine. When her son was sentenced to 20 3 ear3 imprisonment for robbery Mrs. Hannah Donovan, of New York, climbed to the top of a house and jumped off. Her life work of rais ing a son had failed. She did not want to live any longer. It is al ways the parent that paya the pen alty for the son's crime. Mobile Register. And if the son had been brought up in the fear and admonition of the Lord, the penalty is a miscar riage of justice. A law was passed by the last session of the legislature forbiding supervisors to make contract with or purchase supplies from any one related to a member by blood or marriage within the third degree except if euch person secures the contract by lowest competitive bid Illinois Central System Clears Up Point About. Railway Net Income. The net railway operating income of the Class I railroads of the United States for 1921 was at the rate of 3 31 per cent upon their tentative valuation as established by the Interstate Commerce Commission for rate making purposes. Many have construed this to mean that the railroads realize a net income of 3.31 per cent available for dividends, enlargements and improvements. This is far from being true. There is a great difference between "net rail way operating income" and "net income." Accounting methods are prescribed for the railroads by the Interstate Commerce Com mission, and they are uniform for all railroads. After all operating expenses and taxes have been provided for, and uncollectible accounts have been deducted, and after funds have been set aside for the payment of rentals on equipment and joint facilities, the balance left over from revenues is called "net railway operating income," which was for 1921 the 3 31 per cent referred to. Most railroads have some income from sources other than railway operations, sucn as interest ana aiviuenas on securities ownea, wincn, auueu to me net railway upeiai- t n cr inrnmo " rrnctitntc what 5 q known a "crrncQ inrnmp " ing income," constitutes what is known as Tlioro art oortotn f i v ort n rmtc linivPiTor w-Vi i rli mnct ocilrl bo foro tbr "not inmmp is established, chief among these being interest on the bonds and the rental of leased lines. After making deductions for these, it is estimated that there was practically nothing left of either the "net railway operating income" of 3 31 per cent or the "gross income." In other words, the railroads had no "net income" for 1921. Some railroads fared better than others during 1921, just as some business men and farmers fared better than others. Preferable location, foresighted management, superior machinery with which to work these are elements which have their influence in the show ing made by a railroad, as they have in eveo' other business enterprise. The railroads cannot serve the public adequately unless they are able to enlarge and improve their properties as the requirements of the country for transportation service develop. In order for the railroads to grow, their securities must be attractive to investors, for the funds they receive from the issuance of securities are used in improving their properties. The Illinois Central S3stem, in common with Other railroads, is striving to render a service of satisfaction. It is eager to continue to improve and enlarge its facilities, so that its plant may be a little in advance of the needs of its patrons. An overloaded machine is never efficient, and if the overloading continues for any length of time the machine must necessar ily deteriorate. This statement is made in the interest of a better understanding of railway problems We ask that our patrons view the railway problem in its true light; that they realize that eyery obstacle placed in the path of railway progress rebounds against them, as much as against the railroads themselves, and that the interests of the railroads and the interests of the public are inseparable. Constructive criticism and suggestions are invited. C. H. MARKHAM, President, Illinois Central System. 14 Judge C. P. Long For Re-election. The name of Hon. C. P. Long is announced iu this paper to succeed himself as judge of the First Judi cial District of Mississippi. Judge Long was elected to suc ceed Hon. Claude Clayton in 1918, and has held the scales of justice evenly balanced since that time. As few cases appealed to the supreme court have been reversed from Judge Long's decisions a for any equal period of time under other circuit court judges in this district, and the record shows that the laws have been enforced during his adminis tration with equal justice to all. Judge Long is a Christian gentle man and believes in dispatching the court's business so as to economize in expenses to the people. While the per diem of jurors and other em ployees of the courts have been ma terially increased since he came into office and the business of the courts have been equally or more volum inous, the record shows that the ex pense of holding the courts has not been correspondingly increased to the people of the counties. Judge Long states that it is a democratic custom to endorse an efficient oflicer with a second term, and says that if his record as a fair, impartial and economic judge is a worthy record, he asks the people to say so at the polls by giving him their votes. Judge Long hopes to see most of the voters of the district, both men and women, before the primary, and states that he will appreciate favor able consideration of his candidacy at their hands.

The importance of athletics in the school is now recognized by every body, and every well organized, large school b.89 a coach or coaches for its pupils. The salaries for these coaches are paid, of course, by the school board. These people usually receive better salaries than do the other members of the teaching force. AH this is as it should be, and no one can offer a convincing argument against the system. Athletic train ing is necessary to the physical de velopment and has its place in men tal and moral development as well. But there ia another phase of school work and supervision that, in my mind, outranks athletics and is des tined tofireceive its due . considera tion by all up-to-date school boards. I refer to school nursing, or rather realth supervision by a graduate nurse who has had specific training in this line of work. A capable woman who understands the sacred ness of her duties and relations to anil "with her pupils will be of ines timably more value than any other member of the teaching force. Her duties are advisory as well as super visory, and it has been shown that current sickness can be reduced 50 per cent or more by employing a capable school nurse. But perhaps the greatest good comes in the care of and advice given to the girls who are iust budding into womanhood. Again she discovers defects in sight and hearing in the younger children in time to have them cared for he fore it is too late. She also discov ers the cause that may possibly have incipient tuberculosis. This discovery will -mean the difference between life and death in many in stances. Now for some practical applica tions: The schools of Aberdeen and Amory each needy, and should have a nurse. While they do without such service, they can not claim to be first class and up-to-date. So I am hoping that thw progressive men and women composing the school boards for these two, otherwise, splendid schools will at once con sider this matter. In addition , to the work outlined above, I see a possibility of getting medical in spection lor all the schools in the county. If tLe coiuity should be divided into two inspection dis tricts, the nuxsH from the Aberdeen school could work one end. and the Amory nurse; could work the other, The microHCopic work for both would be done in the county labor atory, and I am sur the State Bu reau of Child Welfare would furnish a woman pbyacian to make the physical exatoinations. Medical inspection for all the schools in the county and nurse supervision for the two large schools would be a wonderful step forward, and it all can be bad if the school boards at Aberdeen and Amory will add to their force a school nurse and will co-operate as suggested above. Your County Health Officer would be delighted to meet the boards mentioned above and discuss the matter in detail. He will also ren der all possible assistance in work ing the plan nut to a successful end. G. S. BRYAN, Co. Health Otticer.
