Jackson’s great revival has spread over the State its inspiration toward the only life worth living — the life that seeks to serve one’s fel low men. «<• “We rea bored by society," an nounced one apple-cheeked miss in a Jaunty red hat who happened to be a daughter of ex-Governor Brew er, “so we thought we would like to try politics, and some of our peo ple are so shocked." It’s the State Plant Board that co-operates with municipalities in | ant campaigns and are ready all the time to do this anywhere, State En-| tomologist R. W. Harned writes the Leader. The State assisted at Ha zlehurst in the anti-ant campaign. The report of Mrs. Freeman Brougher, secretary-treasurer, be- j fore the Hinds County Tuberculosis j Committee at a meeting yesterday afternoon at the Carnegie Library showed a total of $1,548 derived j from the sale of Christmas Seals, be-1 tween last October ana tne present date. A11 but $200 of this amount was secured in Jackson. The Rotary Club of Jackson has engaged Mrs. Logan McLean as of ficial pianist of the organization, and she will direct the musical program for the weekly meetings. Mrs. Mc Lean is also the pianist of the "fly ing squadron” a work in which her, talents not only contribute much to. the success of the program but ini which she manifests a keen personal interest. Dr. W. H. Ramsey, public health unit leader of Forrest'county, has re signed his position and accepted the appointment to take charge of the • Mississippi Home for the Feeble Minded at Elliaville. Dr. Ramsey is now visiting Eastern and Northern Health centers and especially a home for the feeble-minded in Massachu setts with a view to efficient service at the Mississippi home. How has the ant-poison served our homes? At our house we are tol erably free of the pests inside but no amount of poison has rid an oak tree of the multitudinous trail that mov es constantly up and down the j trunk. Let us hear from all the anti ant neighborhoods with a view to keeping up the fight, before we are completely covered up by the carpet of ants that threatens us. Read "The Passing of a Great Rce” and "Outwitting Our Nerves" —they’re at the public library. And while you are there look over the splendid additions recently made to the book-shelves by the Library’s ex cellent book-committee. Our sedate men and thoughtful women can avail | themselves of the literature they like while the lover of fiction can revel; In the very latest supplies of the best. Visit the Library and learn what It has for you. The masses must stand between the misguided laborer who resorts to force to assert himself and the con scienceless representative of big bus iness who ignores the law. Both' are a menace to society. Neither ex treme can And excuse for crime in what the other does. After the gov ernment has made laws to reduce violence, the people muBt stand solid ly for obedience to those laws. Force can be employed only by the govern ment. Democracy stands for govern ment. A record for steadiness on a Job is believed to be held by J. T. Kyle, engine foreman for the Illinois Cen tral System at Memphis, Tenn., who has reported fo rduty and worked every day for three consecutive years. This means that he passed up all Sundays and holidays and was fortunate enough to escape all sick ness. Mr. Kyle, according to the August issue of the Illinois Central Magazine, has been in the service of the Illinois Central System for 27 ywars. THE PEOPLE ON TRIAL. More interest is manifested in the contests for judge and chancellor as well as in the race for the supreme court Judge in the southern district at Mississippi than haB ever been jtnown since the judges were made e lective by the people. There is .only one supreme court Judge to be elected this year,vJudge Cook, of the southern district, who is a candidate not only for the unex pired term, but for a full elective term of eight years lftginning May 10, 11024. While a supreme court judge is nominated and elected for and from one of the three supreme court districts of Mississippi, when be takes the oath and ascends (he bench, hlB vote and influence are po tential to effect the life, liberty and property of every human being in Mississippi. I. Por this reason, interest of the en tire state attaches to the result of the primary in the southern district, auu ima iiuejeai is nut connnen iu the bar, but to liitlgants and people generally. The incumbent, Judge Cook, is opposed by Representative Lane of Smith county and chairman of the house of the powerful commit tee on insurance by appointment of Speaker Conner. He was one of the most active members of the legisla ture, having been named on very im portant conference committee also by Speaker Conner. Lane ie energetically engaged in his campaign. v Judge Cook, who could not tfegln to campaign until the supreme court adjourned on July 10# is reported as speaking in as many places as it is possible before-the primary. II. . There is more than district-wide interest, also, in the race for circuit judge in the various districts of the state, as well as that for chan cellor. This interest results from the fact that judges and chancellors exchange court holdings, at which time it is possible for many judges and chancellors to sit upon the life, liberty and property of the men and women who had no ^roice in their nomination or election, and for that reason, the people seem to be im bued with the hope that the very best men for these positions— men disassociated from and unsupported by trusts and combines—w}ll be nom inated in every district in Mississip pi. And above all things, no man who drinks white mule, or consorts with the drinkers of vendors of white mule Bhould be allowed to disgrace the judicial ermine. HI. The supreme court of. Mississippi has six members. Where the court is evenly divided in any case, the decision of a circuit judge or chan cellor is sustained, making him prac tically a member of tb«U court. In other words it takes an affirmative vole of four of the six members of the supreme court of Mississippi to reverse on opinion of a circuit judge or chancellor. For this and abvious other reasons members of the bar in each of the 17 circuit court districts of the state aB well as in the 10 chan cery court districts are expressing the earnest desire that the very ab lest legal talent that is offering for circuit judges and chancellors will La fn«rAi<nkl» Vi Af tVlfl pie when they come to cast their primary ballots on August 15. IV. Visitors to the capital from all parts of the state report that in many of the'districts for circuit judge and chancellor, as well as in the south ern district, where the race is be tween Judge Cook and Repiesenta tlve Lane, that the paramount issue is trusts and combines. This issue seems also to be a piegnant one in the race for United Stales senator, and for congress in those districts wnere the incumbent congressmen have opposition, and in the sixth dis tiict wneie the race is between Jeff CollinB and Webber Wilson. V. It is being said everywhere that the people" aie on trial. The people by their votes, took the appoint ments of judges and chancellors out of the hands of the governor, and piade them elective by their own votes. The argument was that this was a government of, by and for the people; and that no governor, whe ther influenced fey trusts and com bines or corporate interests or not— should be allowed to name judges who sit upon the life, liberty and property of all the people. It was pointed out that there yere three co ordinate branches of the govern ment—executive, judicial and legis lative; and that the Judges should receive their commissions from the same source that governors and leg islators got their—the sovereign peo ple. VI. Today their lesson confronts them. Shall the judges and chancellors read tneir titles Clear irom tne peo ple; or shall they be under obliga tions to sinister trusts and combines? "When the righteous are in au thority the people rejoice; but when the wicked beareth rule the people mourn.”—Hinds County Gazette. The Ann Judson Circle, the young est of the W. M.

The Playground and Recreation Association of America recently is med a statement claiming that Juve aije delinquency all over the nation is disappearing as the result of play ground work. The kids Whose minds have been turned in the direction at athletic sports and competitions, are not going to seek an outlet in gang raids and law breaking. If you can hold these youngsters until they are close to manhood, they are never likely to be lawless. Arm ing citizens to deal with burglars and bandits may temporarily check the crime spirit but it does not wipe It out. The only way to get ahead of it permanently Is to destroy law lessness among growing boys. Play grounds are the greatest force work ing in this country toward that end. And Brookhaven has the playgrounds and the sports where the boy and | the girl can express themselves In wholesome happy sport, and exhaust their exuberance of spirit and their prowess and ambition to exploit inemwiveB ill (tauiea aiiu wuioijw. In last. Sunday's Messenger, Pas tor Lewis said: There probably was never a time or place In this world when or where It was not a problem to rear child ren. This is true even in a home where parents are God fearing and who have high* Christian Ideals. It is tragic for children to come into a home and pass through the home training period, where the parents neither fear God nor regard man. Of towns or cities, Brookhaven may justly be considered as a place which offers a more favorable place to train boys and girls in ways of right conduct and high character than most other places. At the pres ent day we have advantages not enjoyed by parents a generation ago. We have eliminated the open sa loon with its temptations and blight ing effects and dangers. The home dances and public ball room do not entice and demoralize our young peo ple as they formerly did. It is be lieved that profanity and indecent stories are not so common as they once were. Besides these facts, which we may call the negative phase, we have in creased positive advantages. We have a better and more complete sys tem of public school education. Hence less ignorance and more enlighten ment. The church is reaching more people with its improved and varied service. Our ministers are better ed ucated. We have more frequent op portunities of hearing the Gospel. The Sunday Schools are far more effi cient, and more nearly a hundred per cent of all the people attend the Sabbath schools. Other church so cieties »and influences are at work which do much good to the young and to society which were formerly not known or used. And, we may add there is a whole some public sentiment growing that commends and upholds the strong, vigorous, upright youth who fearless ly follows a high standard of mor als. He is the sort of man, business men want in their offices and stores and parents want for sons-in-law. The only way to cure crime at its source is to bring the right influences intn Ufa Af vniinff nGnnlG. * a * Cures Malaria, Chills, kkk Fever, Bilious Fever, U U U Colds and LaGrippe. i Tennis Oxfords in White and Black, all sizes, for children_75 cents for Ladies and Boys_95 Cents SAMPLE SHOE STORE Bad Complexions Made Good—“My com plexion was very bad from poqr health and being out in the sun and wind. 1 have used one bottle of Magnolia Balm and already there is a great improve ment; I will .continue using it.

Many old folks' say Doan's Kidney Pills help them keep young. Here’s a convinc ing case. J. D. McFarland, farmer, Lock Box 46, Lucien, Miss., says: “Af ter I had the “flu”, my kidneys were out of order. I felt weak all over a^id was miserable. It seemed as though my back were ready to fall to pieces because it was so painful. The kidney secretions passed freely getting me up often at night. My son had used Doan’s Kidney Pills, so he advised *ne to try them. Doan’s soon gave me relief and I felt more like myself again. Since then, an occasional use of Doan’s has proven reliable when ever I have felt a little of the eld trouble.” Price, 60c, at all dealers. Don’t simply ask for a kidney remedy —get Doan’s* Kidney Pills—the same that Mr, McFarland had. Foster-Milbum Co., Mfrs., Buf falo, N.

Readers(?) have sent in or brouKht to this office articles care fully clipped that they wanted pub lished, when the fact was, they had already been published in the paper. Again, friends have given us news items that were no news at all for the simple reason, they had already been given our readers. A wedding written up, a funeral account, etc., after publicity had been already given are among the surprising requests made by read ers who really don't read or "over look." . Now here is how the Vindicator refers to a similar experience Oscar Donaldson reads the Vindi cator on the installment plan. He made about four trips to this office during the past week to read certain articles overlooked. A lady dropped in the store the other day and asked Oscar if he read so and so in the Vindicator. He had not. In a few moments Oscar was down this way looking the paper over. The next day a gentleman dopped in the store and inquired if Oscar had noticed a certain article in. the Vindicator. Once again he had to exolalm that he overlooked it. A second trip to this office was then made. The two following days the san e questions were put to him and finally he came down and spent an hour reading last week’s paper. Hereafter Oscar will look the paper over carefully before passing it up. Everything rushes these days and so the reader rapidly scans his pa per and misses what he most desires to see. Read carefully. You can save yourself not only trouble but MONEY by reading ev erything (including ads) in the Leader. Little Miss Aylward Receives Social Favors at Pensacola. Claiming as much interest as many of the grown-up visitors in the city is pretty two-and-a-half year old Mary Ellen Aylward, who with her parents has recently arrived from Brookhaven, Miss., for a visit to her uncle and aunt, Mr. and Mrs. Ed mund Fox. On Thursday afternoon this little girl was the Inspiration of a lovely party when her cousin, Mary Eliza beth Fox entertained in her honor gt ;-.er home on West Garden street. The hours between 4:30 and 6:30 o’clock proved very happy ones and ilary Elizabeth and her two young friends.

Tylertown, Miss.r July 27. — Buf ford Thompson, a farmer, residing at Darbun, Miss., last night, mistak ing his 4-year old boy for a burglar, shot and killed him with a shot gun. The child was sleeping on a small bed next to the one oAuaied by his father and during the night his head became wedged between the iron railing of the bed. The boy awoke screaming. , The father tried to reach over and draw the child to him but could not do bo on account of the young ster’s head being fast between the railings. Thinking that someone was hold ing the child, he crept around the head of his bed with his shotgun and feeling the head of the child in the dark, thought it was the head of an Intruder and fired after aiming so as not to shoot in the bed where he thought the child lay. The charge blew off the head, parts of it being found in an adjoin ing room. Notice. My camp at Fair River will be open to campers and swimmers the entire summer.

Vardaman. Tylertown, Miss., July 29.—More ! than 5,000 people yesterday attended, the picnic and political rally here, and were treated to a deluge of political oratory such as is seldom heard in one day, candidates for ev ery district office being present or being represented. All business hous es of the town were closed at 11 o'clock for the remainder of the day, and the entire town and surrounding country, as well as large crowds from the neighboring towns and counties turned out for the festivities of the day. B. F. Moak, master of ceremonies, presented the speakers, the first be ing A. A. Cohn of Brookhaven, who appeared in the interests of James K. Vardaman for senator. He was fol lowed by the speaker of the day, for mer governor Bilbo, who delivered an address along nonpolitical lines. Thomas Mitchell of Magnolia ap peared in the interest of the candi dacy of Hon. E. J. Simmons for cir cuit judge and was followed by Judge D. M. Miller, candidate for re-elec tion to that office. W. B. Mixon and Judge R. W. Cutrer, candidates for chancery judge addressed the crowd and were followed by Judge W. H. Cooke of Hattleshurar. candidate for supreme court judge. Those speakers arousing the great est interest were Hugh V. Wall and Percy E. Quin, candidates for Con gress, who engaged in a joint de bate which at stages grew heated and acrimonious. Both candidates were cheered by their followers. Music for the occasion was pro vided by the Mississippi Industrial Institute Band of Columbia, while an airplane' with spectacular stunt per formances entertained the crowd in the afternoon. An event of the day was a baseball game between the crack teams of Tylertown and McComb which re sulted |n a victory for McComb, 1 to 0 in eleven innings. Mount Zion Baptist Bevival. The special annual meeting of the Mt. Zion Baptist Church began Sat urday at eleven a. m., Rev. W. B. Holcomb, pastor, being assisted by Rev. £. P. Morris, of the Port Gib son Baptist Church. Large congre gations have been attending morn ing and afternoon services. Several evening services have been held—one at the church, one at Grafton Hall and one at New Sight school houses. Visitors from Brookhaven, Mont gomery, Wesson and other localities have been in attendance. After only a few days nearly a dozen additions were received to the church roll. On last Thursday a movement was set on foot to purchase Pastor Hol comb a car that he may better sup ply his large afid Important field, which consists of Wesson, Mt. Zion, and Mission Hill Baptist churches. Mt. Zion launched the movement and will assume one half of the cost confidently believing that the other churches will do their respective parts. Mt.' Zion seems to be setting the pace for pastoral automobile service in suburban churches of the county. Cars shorten the distance, but some day we hope to see consolidated churches with pastors snugly loca ted in the midst of the people who are now scattered among, perhaps, four or five church organizations.

Today, Barney Oldfield is known as the “Master Tire Builder.” Starting with the crude tires which carried the “999” one mile in sixty seconds, Oldfield gradually de veloped his famous Cords—a set of which covered 500 miles at eighty eight miles an hour without a change. In three years Oldfield tires have won every important race on Amer ican speedways. They are the only American tires that have ever taken first place in the French Grand Prix. They have won for three consecu tive years in the 500-iriHe Indian apolis Sweepstakes. So far in 1922, Oldfields have lowered four World’s Records and seven track records. The Wichita Test Run gave evi dence of Oldfield superiority in tour ing—when a set of four Cords cov ered 34,525 miles over rutted, frozen, winter roads—a performance at tested by the Mayor of Wichita.

Dr. Fletcher Fletchinger, Super intendent of the Choctaw Oil Well Company, was here last week and advised that the drilling outfit Is in transit and that drilling operations will really take place by the 28th of the month. The doctor also said the minds of quite a good number of the people in the county had been poisoned by the false report of some pessimist that the company did not have suffl cient funds with which to carry on drilling operations. Such a report should not, of course, be circulated and on the other hand every fellow should look forward with anticipa tion to the development of one of the biggest oil fields in the whole coun try.—Fragfclln Advocate.
