SPOTORNO, |H , IllP EXCLUSIVE AGENT. > flit Sea Ciasl Cram BAY SAINT LOUIS, MISSISSIPPI, SATURDAY. SEPTEMBER 24, 1910. FOR OCTOBER. Copyright 1910 by C. H. Rikth. OCTOBER. O. T. Roosevelt has come back to the West ! Of all the Rough Riders his luck was best. He rode from Dakotah to San Juan Hill, And he found him the Spaniards he wanted to kill, Shouting, “Into ’em, Teddy, An* into ’em deep!” And the men of Grenada Went down in a heap. He rested his broncho and fed him his fill, and then he rode yelling up Capitol Hill. He wasn’t expecting or asking a thing, but he landed right in the political ring, shouting “Into ’em, Teddy, and into ’em plump!” and the poor politicians went down in a lump. He watered his pinto and fed him some oats, And then he remounted and hunted for goats. He found him some people who didn’t agree With all of his notions, and gave a whoop-pee, Yelling, “Into ’em, Teddy, An’ into ’em hot!” And he knocked them all into The pittomless bot. He hobbled his charger and gave him some grass, and then he went after someone in his class. He put up a lion with blood in its eye, and he clapped on the spurs with a terrific cry, saying “Into ’im, Teddy, an’ into *im hard!” and the lion passed on to his final reward. He breathed his good mustang and looked him around, But further adventure was not to be found. So he pulled up his trousers and pulled down his vest, And slowly rode back to his olden time West, Shouting, “Back to ’em, Teddy, An‘ back to ’em proud!” And they gathered about him And solemnly bowed. He rode in his saddle, and rode on his head, and he put all the tender feet under the bed. He dashed to the East, and he dashed to the West, and he halted before them, expanding his chest, saying, “Three cheers for Teddy, the pride of the West!” and they took a great pleasure in doing the rest. October is from the Latin octo, mean ing eight, and it was formerly the eighth month of the year. This brought the football season around at a time when there was grave danger of being suffo cated before the ball was even put into play, and there was a great deal of dis satisfaction at the old Greek and Roman universities. A change was frequently talked of, but it remained for Numa Pompilius, who was one of the early friends of education, to do anything about it. In 713 B. C. he moved Octo ber along to its present place in the calendar, and now the quarterback on a football team always says before snap ping the ball, Numa, Numa, B. C. Come seven, One, three! After which the rooters, who reached a very high state of proficiency in the latter days of Numa, recite. Numa, Numa, Boomalooma, Come seven, One, three, B. C., Whoopee! Si wash! or whatever the name of the school is, as you may hear them doing any time this month by following the riot wagon when it passes. Until the 23rd of the month, October will be under the influence of Libra, the Balance, which is the seventh sign of the zodiac. This will enable every body running for office to keep on the fence pretty well as to the real issues of the campaign, but when the sun passes out of that constellation on the follow ing day they will begin dropping on one side or the other, and it will be easier to make out who the true friends of the people are. After the 22d we will be influenced by Scorpio, the Scorpion, which is almost meaningless now, but in early times typified the manner in which the north wind stung the old Greeks, who were in the habit of going until very late in the season withoutfbiaving on any wear to speak of, either over or under. * mmmmmmrnmam * A bit of Fall is as nice a thing As I know anything about — When the pumpkin pie is ripening And the time is opportune for kraut. When the hunter gets his trappings out, Awakened by the time ot year, And the fanner, furious without, And hot within, begins to shout, " “Get ou-u-u-u-u-t of here!” “Get ou-u-u-u-urt of here—Dadblame your skin!” Ah, that’s the proper time to sigh— When the squirrel gets his goodies in Against the winter by-and-by. When the bending reaches of the sky Are very soft and very near, And the farmer, with a watchful eye, B egins to hop around and cry, “Get ou-u-u-u-u-t of here!” “Get ou-u-u-u-u-t of here—you blanky blank!” Ah, that’s the season of them all— When winter hangs upon the flank Of the wild goose passing in the fall. When the plaintive quail begins to call Across the golden fields and sere, And the farmer, bursting from the tall With leaps and bounds, begins to bawl: “Get ou-u-u-u-u-u-t of here!” The melancholy days will come, and the pheasant will intone his drum upon the sad and drowsy wind in the solemn manner of his kind. The booming frog will sniff the breeze and fall to digging on his knees, and the buckwheat cake will take a crack at this fool thing of coming back. It may be Jeffries and his strain are never quite themselves again, but the pickled pig’s foot and the rest are al ways equal to the test. They never dis sipate a bit, but spend the summer prime and fit, and let the frost succeed the dew, and they’re there, you bet, as good as new. The doughty oyster on his shell, the chitlin looking strong and well, and and resolute of eye, the hardy brands of winter pie. The applebutter, juice and flake, the same that mother used to make, and the crackling of our youthful lot the cock and captain of the pot. The football season will revert, and the center rush will paw the dirt. He’ll wake the natives with his roar, and bawl for victory and gore. The piled up dying and the dead will mass against his butting head, and he’ll spin the planet in his rage just like a squirrel in his cage. Alas for those who calmly sit devis ing to denature it, and all the college renegades who think to temper it for maids! The students and the teachers howl, and the rooterd/and the bleach ers yow', and damned be he #ho does not rise and kill somebody twice his size. The aeroplanes will cruise the air above the old-time county fair, and the lucky winner will be he who wins the best two falls in three. The far mer in his limousine will tool around upon the green, and the hired man will seize the chance to wear his other pair of pants. The softer weather will defy The blandishments of June, And the month will give us by and by The office hunter’s moon. A chop will cost four bits a pound, And beef a buck a bite, And the wolf will wear a groove around The cabin every night. The 418th anniversary of the discov ery of America by Christopher Colum bus will be celebrated on the night of the 14th by the seven Guggenheim brothers. Mr. Roosevelt will be stage manager again this month. The villain will be the Demon Rum. Mr. Bryan wijl be the father of the stolen child, and Mr. Cannon, who made the password Hell last month, will change it to read Hell-p! . And then November will return With cold and chilly draft, And the wild goose going down the line With Winter biting aft. Notwithstanding the vituperation and uncalled-for abuse that is being heaped on Ex-Govemor Vardaman by some of the friends and newspapers supporting his opponents in the Senatorial cam paign, he stands today stronger than ever with the majority of the people of Mississippi, and if the election were held today, there is no doubt, and it is generally conceded, that Mr. Vardaman would be elected. As Governor he served his people well, fearlessly and above reproach. He has been found true and not wanting, and the popular will—not that of the wiley politician— is that he be returned to public service.

Extensive Plans Under Way for Great Event on No vember 9th, at Gulfport — Citizens From All Over the State to Take Active Part - - Return of Captain J. T. Jones. The Gulf Coast Jubilee being planned by citizens of Gulfport, to take place on November 9th, promises to be the most notable celebration ever held in South Mississippi. Arrangements are being made to take care of 40,000 visitors, and special trains will be run from all parts of the State for the accommodation of citizens who desire to take part in the event. The jubilee will be in celebration of the three distinct events, the return of Capt. J. T. Jones, president of the Gulf and Snip Island road, and founder of Gulfport, who has been absent from the State nearly two years, the opening of the Harrison County Fair, and the dedication of the new Federal Building in Gulfport. Each of these events is of more than local interest, and the expectations of the citizens of Gulfort will, doubtless, be more than realized. They are plan ning the jubilee on an extensive scale, and abundant entertainment will be provided for all who attend. Interest centers chiefly, however, in the return of Capt. J. T. Jones, who recovered his former health and pro digious bodily vigor. Capt. Jones is, undoubtedly, South Mississippi’s most popular citizen, and, more than any ocher one man, deserves credit for the great growth and progress of that sec tion of the State during the past ten years. It was his capital that built the Gull & Ship Island Road from Gulfport into Jackson. It was his capital that gave Gulfport a harbor with twenty three feet of water, and his capital that converted Gulfport from an unsightly sandbar into a thriving and prosperous city of 10,000 inhabitants. The harbor was first undertaken as a private enter prise, and, after Capt. Jones had ex pended $1,800,000 in dredging a harbor and channel for ocean-going vessels, the Federal Government agreed to as sume control of the property and paid him the munificent sum of $150,000 therefor. Nearly two years ago Capt, Jones suc cumbed to overwork, and physicians or dered him to take complete rest and relaxation. He spent nearly a month under the care of the most noted physi cians of Europe, and for the past several months has been quietly living at Buf falo. During this period the active management of the Gulf and Ship Island Road and other extensive inter ests in which Capt. Jones is involved have been in the hands of his son, Vice- President J. A. Jones, who has shown rare skill and executive ability, proving that he is a worthy son of his father, and fully capable in every respect. All railroads in the State will grant reduced rates for the Gulf Coast Jubi lee, and the committee on arrangements is also planning to run special trains from Mobile, New Orleans and Mem phie. TO THE VOTERS OF THE 6TH CONGRBS SIGNAL DISTRICT OF MISSISSIPPI. By your ballots on the 12th inst. and this day by the Congressional Execu tive Committee I have been declared the nominee of the Democratic party as representative in the United States Congress from the Sixth District of Mississippi. To those voters who, in the first or second primary, recorded their votes for me, my heart is too full of gratitude to rightly express my deep appreciation.

And, now that it is all over, I am thankful that not a spark of ill-feeling is harbored by me against any of those who fought my political ambition and cast their votes against me. I hold but the warmest and kindest feeling for all the voters in my distriet and I want to assure them that my sincerest ambition is to serve all the people and every sec tion of my district fairly and impar tially, and, at all times, to see that every institution and interest, be they corporation or laborer, railroad or far mer, millionaire or pauper, receive at the hands of the greatest law-making body in the world a fair and square deal Very sincerely, B.
