The item thatAlvin C. York, “the bravest man in the American army" is spending his Surplus to build up primary schools for the mountain children of Tennessee, brings to mind the three reasons for the first moonlight schools of Kentucky. I heard Mrs. Stewart relate these rea sons why she became the “Moonlight Lady”' of Kentucky. First, a man over 80 came to her with the request to read to him from a book he car ried. “I would give 50 years of my life if I could read,” he mourned. Then she heard a song composed by an ignorant mountuain youth. ' In surprise at his unexpected talent, she exclaimed in her enjoyment in the words. .“Shucks,” said the boy, “that ain’t nothin’ to some I think, but I fergits ’em before some one writes ’em down for me.” Then a mother came to her with a daugh ter’s letter to be read. Her request for help ended with the cry, “Oh, if I could only read her letters. She’s all I have in the world and it seems as though a wall were growing be tween Mary and me. If I could only read her letters.” Twelve hundred eager pupils came to the first moon light school—the youngest was 18 and the oldest 84. Capt. D. C. Bramlette Dies. Woodville, Miss., June 27. — Capt. D. C. Bramlette, well known law yer and Confederate veteran, died at his home in Woodville Sunday after a brief illness. Captain Bramlette was born at Liberty, Miss., in 1944, entered the Confederate army at the age of 16 and' fought in the battle of Shiloh. At Murphreesborough he was almost mortally wounded, but after being an invalid for many months recov ered sufficiently to enter the service of the Confederacy in the supply de partment while his left arm and shoulder were useless from his wound. In August,. 1866, he was admitted to the bar and during his fifty-six years of practice was one of the most successful lawyers in Mis sissippi. Until his illness a *few weeks ago he was in his law office every day and in point of practice was possibly the oldest active law yer in Mississippi. Captain Bramlette was a delegate to the- national Democratic conven tion 9! 1884 in Chicago that first nominated Grover Cleveland for pres ident and had the distinction of be ing the original Cleveland man on the Mississippi delegation. Burial was in Evergreen Cemetery, the funeral beng conducted by the Rev. Joseph Keunhle of Natchez of the Episcopal churchy Com Variety to Plant. The impression is generally prev alent that Mexican June corn, or some strain of the late Laguna type is to be preferred for late plant ing. In late variety tests conducted by. the Mississippi Experiment Sta tion, the last three years, Station La guna, Mexican June, and Goliad ranked high in yields, but in tests planted earlier their comparative yields were not so good. These va rieties are all similar in several re spects. They have large vigorous stalks that appear to grow well if there is any possible chance, leaves are numerous, large, and a dark green. Ears are of medium length, rather thick and well protected by heavy, closely fitting shucks. The kernels are smooth, white-capped, and medium bard. MANAGERS AND BAI .

After a visit to the great peach section of Georgia, around Fort Val ley, one who has studied peach grow ing knows that the opportunities and conditions are equally favor able, in Lincoln county, Mississippi. In fact, I know of sections in Lin coln county which are far better for commercial peach growing than the section around Fort Valley. After returning from Fort Valley I made a careful study of the orchards of Messrs. P. M. Buie and Nathaniel White, and I was convinced beyond a doubt, that we have a much better section for peaches. , While looking through the thous ands of acres of orchards, I wished that we had more home *nd com mercial orchards in Lincoln County. After seeing the beautiful and expen sive homes of Messrs. Evans and cairn or j<ori vauey, two growers who have large peach orchards. I felt that I had made no mistake in getting some commercial orchards started in Lincoln. I was more in terested' and enthusiastic after hav ing visited a great part of the peach territory. I found good homes, good barns all with modern conveniences and equipment. All buildings were painted and modern improved mach inery was being used on the farms. Several orchards of 1000 to 2000 acres were visited. The peaches were picked by squads of men and women, placed on spring wagons or trucks and carried to the packing shed. Here the peaches were grad ed, packed,'labeled and loaded right into the refrigerator cars which were spotted at the packing shed. The Central of Georgia railroad has tracks to almost all of the orchards near Fort Valley. The cull peaches went to the canning factory where they were canned. During the busy season of the peach harvest, 450 to 500 cars of peaches are shipped daily from the Fort Valley section. If the farmers and business men of Lincoln county will work together for the development of dairying, trucking, cotton, poultry, hogs, and fruit on a commercial scale, our county will be the best county in the south within a very short time. Our opportunities in an agricultural way are far greater than many of us have ever realized. Henry H. Legett, County Agent. Nuptials Upset Precedent in Old Cap itol Building. Jackson, Miss., July 1.—To Pro fessor J. M. Broom, assistant state superintendent of education, and Miss Pattie Maude Batson, his sec retary, belong the distinction of be ing the only couple ever married in the 6ld capitol, and it has been standing at the head of State street for nearly a century. Friends and associates of the couple, knowing there had been sick ness in the home of State Superin tendent Bond, where Miss Batson re sided, persuaded her to be married in the hall leading to the depart ment of education, the rear end of the hall being banked with ferns, while there was a profusion of shas ta daisies, roses and other bright flowers along the sides. Th double ring ceremony was performed by Rev. M. h. Burton, pre siding elder, at noon today and af ter rice had been showered over the bridal party and congratulations spoken by scores of employes of the two capitols, Mr. and Mrs. Broom escaped to the Bond home on High street, where luncheon was served and shortly thereafter they left by automobile for their old homes in the southern part of the state, to be u n vta VI 111V1C. Struck by Lightning. Supervisor 0. P. Tanksley was out in Dist. 1, inspecting roads, on Wed nesday and brought back the news about Mrs. H. W. Goza and her four teen year old daughter being struck by lightning on Monday afternoon. It appears that Mrs. Goza and her children were hoeing in a field near their home when a bolt of lightning struck the girl, tearing her sun hat into shreds, burning her hair, body and limbs, and tearing her shoes off her feet. The handle of the hoe which she was holding was splinter ed. Her,mother was knocked down and stunned, but not hurt so serious ly as the daughter. An older daugh ter who was in another part of the field rushed to them and administer ed first aid, getting help and carry ing them to the house. The girl is said to be in a serious condition, but is perfectly conscious, though the sense of hearing has been at least temporarily destroyed. Mr. Goza was working over in the Arkansas oil fields, and a message to him brought him home immediately. — Fayette Chronicle. Vicksburg Quits Sunday Baseball.

The mass meeting was held in. the Warren County Court House.

These records, steadily increasing in number and in mileage totals, justify the Firestone contention that -there is one best way to build tires. •* Among the primary sources of Firestone extra mileage is double guru-dipping—the saturation of the cord plies in a vat of liquid gum—thus coating each cord and virtually eliminating internal heat ahd friction. " Another is Firestone air bag curing, with its 200 pound pressure, which places every cord accurately and equalizes tha tension. By blending the rubbers of different plantations and types, and by tempering it before mixing, Firestone men add still more mileage. Many cord tires are good—a few are better—Firestone user* say one is best. Those who have already experienced Firestone mileage, have stopped shopping and experimenting—they have made these cords standard equipment. Investigate your friends’ success with Firestone Cords—and buy your next tire accordingly. I Come in and get your share of extra mileage.
