Twinkles from the Silver Creek Star. Miss Jennie White visited friends in Brookhaven last Friday night and Saturday. John Hathorn, colored, was ar rested Saturday night and, when taken before the mayor, was fined $25 and costs for carrying a con cealed weapon. The Woman’s Missionary So ciety has put a nice carpet on the floor of the Baptist church and had an oak finish put on the pul pit stand. The appearance is splendid. Mr. J. W. Meadors and Mrs. Nannie Kirkland, of Whitesand, were married yesterday. Capt. J. J. Denson officiating. The cere mony was performed only a few hours after Mrs. Kirklandhad se cured a divorce from her former husband. Mr. J. E. Brent and Miss Lu dye Hemingway eloped last Mon day, going to Monticello, and were united in the bonds of matri mony. It appears that the mar riage institution was not satisfied with having captured one of our teachers, so it took one of our best pupils as another prize. The principal of Lawrence county High School reports that the school enrollment lacks only 3 of reaching the 200 mark. There seems to be an impression abroad that the Board of Trustees will have to employ another teach er, but the average attendance must be 180 before they are allow ed to do this. Dr. W. T. Dow rev, president of Mississippi College, occupied the pulpit at the Baptisl church last Sabbath and presented for the consideration of his audience the need of new buildings for the time-honored institution over which he presides. Our people responded nobly and gave him $850 in cash and subscriptions. It appears very likely that one thousand dollars will be contribut ed by the people of Silver Creek. We are glad to note such generos ity for so good a purpose. There have been a number of elopements in this vicinity lately. The habit seems to be a contagious one. Does not the frequency of runaway marriages indicate a dis position on the part of the young people to be too hasty to cast aside parental restraint? Young folks, think soberly before you . disregard the loving advice of those who raised you, fed you, clothed you and provided you with all your comforts. And it looks much better to marry under the parental roof than in the office of some J. P. Dr. Bishop, our worthy county superintendent of education, is arranging for county contests in music, declamation and elocution, and to the successful contestant in each will be given a handsome gold medal. Prior to the county contest beat contests will be held, and the representative of the school that is successful in the beat will then represent the beat in the county contest. It seems to us this is a splendid plan to create a healthy enthusiasm in the breasts of the younger generation and ought to stimulate every school to greater effort along these lines. Why should not our school represent our beat and also win the county prizes? Planters Organize. Greenville, Nov. 20.—The cot ton planters of Washington coun ty took the lead for the State to day in organizing themselves into a Cotton Growers’ Association and agreeing to withhold 20 per cent, of their present crop of cotton from the market for ninety days, uplessthe price advances to fifteen eeuts per pound for middling cot ton. Hon. J. L. Hebron was elected president of the associa tion. Hon. W. Clark, president of the Mississippi division of the Southern Cotton Growers’ Asso ciation, addressed the planters at noon today at the Cotton Ex change of Wheatley, Anderson & Co., on the necessity of the plan ters organizing and bolding their cotton. The planters of the county ex pressed themselves on the meeting that the size of the crop demands higher prices and that they will hold their cotton from the market until more is offered. In Cupid’s arithmetic one and one make one. m.—♦ “—it: I: j THE YOUNG LADIES OF jlj :: j “WHITWORTH” 0 ^ Should bear in mind that our Drug 111 w 0 1 Store is the place to purchase all 111 I0 1 their wants in Drugs, Fine Station- 111 i> 1 ery, high grade Toilet Articles, Etc.

Cotton picking is just about finished up in this part of the count}’. Sidney Williams transacted bus iness in Brookhaven Saturday. Fruit agents- are bringing in lots of trees just now, but no fruit. Mr. A. M. Summers has been operating his cane mill this time and made us some fine syrup, and didn’t make us burnt sugar. It was a most serious loss that befel Lincoln county when it lost Bro. Jeems,but we hope that Law rence will be benefited by gain ing him over there. Misses Beulah and Rosa Reeves, of McComb, made a very pleasant visit to home folks at Topisaw re cently, and entertained a large crowd of relatives and friends while here. Messrs. W. IT. Reeves and J. B. Wooley visited at McComb last week. Yes, Bro. George, we agree with you on the hog question, but believe the other fellow ought to make his own fence and not cause you to do away with your hogs because he has no fence. We have experienced something like this. Mr. C. C. Sullivan, of this com munity, is moving out near Bogue Chitto. Can some one tell us if eggs still have yelks in them or not. Our most worthy teacher, Miss May Higdon, at Topisaw, is push ing her pupils with pen and ink as well as with their other studies. It is so bad that the postmaster at Nortield will let our mail lay over there three or four days be fore he will send it to Ruth, where it ought to go. There is strong talk of Uncle Sam looking after his business over there soon. Guess the man that sent the stalk of cane to Jackson that measured twenty feet got the per simmon. UNCLE JAKE.
