87th Birthday Celebrated.
Mrs. Charlotte Massey’s 87 th
birthday was celebrated at the home
of her devoted daughter, Mrs. W. W.
East, Sunday, July 2nd. Mrs. Mas
sey’s health has been wonderfully
preserved and she enjoyed the pleas
ant association with friends and rel
atives beyond her words to express
and all the favors and remembrances
heaped upon her. Mrs. Massey is
the widow of the late Thomas Mas
sey who was widely known in this
vicinity until his death in 1902.
Thost who enjoyed the fine hos
pitality of the East home Sunday
were Mr. and Mrs. T. E. Coker, of
Brookhaven; Mr. and Mrs. O’Neal of
McComb; Mr. and Mrs. A. D. Wil
liams and Mrs. I. V. Price of Nor
Rev. F. M. Purser was carried back
to the Baptist Hospital in Jackson
Sunday. He is suffering from an in
fection which followed the removal
of his tonsils. We usually think of
the removal of tonsils as a very mi
nor operation, but Mr. Purser has
suffered greatly. His condition is in
no wise dangerous, however, and we
trust he will soon be in his usual
good health. — Hazlehurst Courier.
J. Q. Brister Recommended for
President of Fair Asso
It was with regret that the an.
nouncement of the retirement of Mr.
C. B. Perkins as president of the
County Fair Association was receiv
ed not only by Kiwanians but by the
community and friends of the coun
ty. But, fortunately, a gentleman
well adapted to the office is Mr. J.
Q. Brister, who has been recommend
ed to succeed Mr. Perkins. So cor
dial have been expressions toward
his leadership in the great county
enterprise, that it is confidently ex
pected our County Board President
will assume ^he additional manifold
duties incumbent upon him as coun
ty Fair President in the interest of
town and county. Mr. Brister has
been since a very young man the
acknowledged leader of his imme
diate community and the new office
tendered him is but an expression of
appreciation of his .capable public
service in more than one direction.
Pres. Perkins, of the Kiwanis CluB'
reports that $2,000 will be available
for prizes this year as against $1,
000 last year. Messrs. C. S. Butter
geld, W. D. Davis, E. M. Bee, Chas.
D. Smith and Jay McGrath are the
committee on solicitation for fair
funds and are gratified at response
already given.
Strawberry acreage is being con
tracted for readily and success of
this feature of the truck enterprise
seems assured. Lincoln soil is well
adapted to strawberry culture.
The promoter of the Playgrounds,
Mr. C. B. Perkins, was especially
gratified that the Municipal Band,
led by Mr. J. Q. Brister, was chosen
out of all the bands in the State to
accompany the Uniform Rank W. 0.
W. to the Mobile Encampment with
Major Edgar Green in command.
At the Kiwanis meeting Wednes
day, Mr. R. B. Wall made a talk on
behalf of a permanent camp at Fair
River in the interest of the Boy
Scouts. Mr. Wall expects the state
camp to be secured for Fair River af
ter the success he anticipates of the
approaching camp this summer. The
present camp equipment will accom
modate only 125.
Mr. J. M. Hoskins, traveling en
gineer of the I. C., was a guest of
the Kiwanis at its Wednesday meet
ing interested in the proposed remov
al of the freight depot.
The meetings of the Kiwanis Club
seem calculated to remind people of
town and county of every live meas
ure that needs their interest and co

Many Enjoyed Brookhaven Hos
pitality Despite Counter
There was testimony for miles a
round Tuesday evening that the glo
rious fourth was a success in Brook
haven. After the big baseball game
of the morning enjoyed by the multi
tude assembled at ten o’clock in the
morning in the big stand, the farm
ers of the county who failed to at
tend the game, came rolling in in
cars, buggies and various sorts of ve
hicles and had their “inning.” They
floored high. There were about sev
en hundred who responded to the Ki
wanis president’s invitation to come
and enjoy the day on the Municipal
Mr. Edgar Green, Assistant State
Manager of the W. O. W. and com
mander of this District held a re
view and drill of uniformed members
of the Order which was very impres
sive and attractive.
There were games, swimming con
tests, potato and sack races and there
kjvaq excellent music by the Munici
pal Band that lent a festivity noth
ing else could. This event was
unique in that it was the first time
UUl iicxguuuis UL LilW UUUIliy
have come in to enjoy in such large
numbers the hospitality afforded by
the Playgrounds and Park.
As. Pres. Brister of the Board of
Supervisors has said:- “We all live
in Brookhaven” altho some live some
mileB out; and whatever we have at
the hub is a part of Lincoln county.
Man Arrested Here on Copiah Liquor
Following the complaint of Chief
of Police Phil Massa, of Hazlehurst,
Chief J. H. Case arrested a man in
a Ford car named Messer, Thursday
night and put him in jail pending the
arrival of Copiah officers, who want
ed him on a liquor charge.
Chief Massa, accompanied by Dep
uty Sheriff Lowe, came down yester
day morning and took their prisoner
back with them.
From the allegation made by the
officers, Messer is charged with hav
ing sold several bottles of liquor to
a young Hazlehurst man. It is sta
ted that the young fellow was appre
hended by Massa with the booze who
in turn implicated Messer, the Ha
zlehurst chief then, phoning here for
him to be arrested upon his arrival.
The' Copiah officers also told while
here that a partner of the man they
came after had already been arrest
ed and was being held in jail at Ha
zlehurst. No whiskey was in Mes
ser’s possession when he was taken
in charge here.
Five Candidates in Race for
County Supt.—5,274 Eli
. gible to Vote.
There will be a battle royal next
Tuesday when the ballots fall
for the office of County Superintend
ent of Education. In Brookhaven
theatre-goers have been reminded of
the great contest from the screens
at the Arcade twice each day for
some time, at least two of the en
terprising candidates exploiting
their qualifications in this way in or
der to gain all the publicity possible.
It is an unusually "fine bunch of
candidates” and Lincoln county may
well be proud of it. But the rub will
come Tuesday when the leading can
didate will be declared elected.
For the first time in history a wo
man is a candidate for the office and
the other day when a voter said he
hoped "the best man would win,” he
hesitated as he was reminded of the
personnel and hastily added "Of
course the men always embrace the
It will be a most interesting race.
5,274 voters are registered and enti
tled to take part in Tuesday’s elec
tion. The result will be watched
with interest and the choice ex
pressed will mean much to the edu
cational interests of our county.
To the Voters of Lincoln County.
On next Tuesday, July 11th, you
are going to select someone for the
most important office within the
gift of the people of Lincoln county,
and I want to urge that everybody
take a part in this election. To those
that have newly registered, I would
like to say that I am the originator
of the petition by which you will be
permitted to vote in this Special^ E
Again urging that everybody go to
the polls and after a very careful
consideration, cast your ballot for
the one whom you think best fitted
for the job, then keep your heads to
gether, let’s make Lincoln county
schools the best in the State.
Thanking you for any interest tak
en in my behalf, I am
. Yours for better schools,
Olley E. Netherland.
The Hazlehurst Courier had the
following to say about the baseball
contest before it occurred yesterday
j afternoon:- The Brookhaven and Ha
■ zlehurst teams are pretty evenly
: matched. Brookhaven so far may
have had a little the best of the ar
i gument this season, although we had
the best of it last season. But the
home boys are determined to win to
morrow’s game. Come see a red-hot
, contest.

I How to Accomplish
More Work In One Day
To BE popular now-a-days, farm tools must not only
do their work well, but they must do it with less
man-power. Working along these lines, SWAYNE,
Robinson & Company of Richmond, Indiana,
have been unusually successful in the design of a
Money-Maker hay press for the Fordson.
Unusual strength, dependability and capacity are
I the important qualities needed in a press to be
operated by the Fordson. All these qualities are
secured in the design and construction of the Money
Strength is secured by putting into each press the
highest quality of material and the quantity of
metal necessary, worked up in correctly designed
parts. Take, for example, the gears that must
withstand intermittent severe strains. The most
carefully compounded semi-steel is used in casting
them and in addition, they are given rigid, perma
nent alignment in a continuous iron bed plate and
heavy bearings.
Neither in the making of the gears nor in the
construction of the frame is any sacrifice made to
meet competition. It has been the SWAYNE
Robinson Policy for eighty years to build the
best tools possible without regard to the price at
which competing tools might be sold. Fortunately
for farmers, the policy has made sales so large that
quantity production of Money-Maker machines
has kept the price down to the lowest level.

BECAUSE the Fordson has plenty of power and is fast running
Fordson farms are known as the best tilled farms in the com
munity. Good plowing can be followed promptly by good disc
ing because the man who drives a Fordson is soon through
with one job and ready for the other. This thorough tillage, of
course, results in bigger crop yields.

Why Fordson Farming ; 1
Is Big Yield Farming
Fordson farmers have an adequate amount of power
available for all farm operations. They can plow at the
time when plowing does the most good. They can
harrow, drill, cultivate, and harvest without delays
and so save all their crcp3 in the best of condition.
That’s why their crops are bigger. That’s why their
crops sell at higher prices.
Only one-ninth of the wheat in one cf the biggest
wheat states grades No. 1 or No. 2. The loss in grade
is between harvest and marketing and most of this loss
is caused by delays in threshing. Eut, this doesn’t need
to happen on a Fordson farm. With a Fordson and a
Wood Brothers Individual Thresher, you don’t have to
wait your turn. You can thresh when the grain is in the
best condition and when it will grade well on the market.
The Individual, being Standard Fordson Equipment,
is in the price class that makes it economical for every
Fordson farmer to own one. Often five or six go to
gether in buying.
It wasn’t a case of cutting down a big thresher to fit
the Fordson. The Individual was built from the ground 1
up to take its place as an important part of this new
system of farming. It saves all the grain. It is fully
