Mr. Pierce undertakes in this volume to solve in ■! practical and analytical way some of the greatest problems of the day and of the individual. This he •does by getting to the underlying in stincts and factors of each case and rebuilding on frank discussion and simple Justice. He gives his person al detailed plans for settling prob lems of capital and labor; the League of Nations, unhappy marriages; the education and understanding of chil * dren, the psychology of advertising; personal accomplishmentts; based on training the unconscious mind and eliminating worry. His ideas of bus iness organization are based on the kindliest thoughtfulness and fair ness that are sure to be the essen tials of harmony between employer and employee. This is a sample of his reasoning as to child training:- "Merely to stop a child by force from doing a forbidden thing does not change ei ther the idea or the wish which prompted the act. The child learns nothing from the experience except that its power was insufficient to carry out its momentary program. There should be a careful explanation In terms which the child can under stand and stimulation of wishes to co-operate and to progress in the es teem of the group.” Thus he search es for the fundamentals and teaches the use ot them. —Reviewer.

Umpires —Myers and McIntyre. < If ever a pitcher deserved a shut out, that pitcher is “Pole" Jenkins. In yesterday’s game with Crystal Springs the six-foot two twirler was the victim of a couple of errors in the first innings that gave the visitors .two unearned tallies. In the entire nine frames Crystal Springs managed to connect safely three times. That’s all. And one of those was a ques tionable safety that passed between the legs of an infielder. The Brookhaven tallies, like the scores of Crystal Springs, came in pairs, like a set of dice, or like twins,. In the last half of the first frame Fos walked; Untz rainbowed out to Underwood; Magers singled to right, sending Fos to third; Fish and Fos put on the “hit and run” and Fos nicked the plate just about the moment Scheppers picked up the grounder. Fish was tossed out at first while Magers took third. A passed ball brought Magers in. Then in the third, after Jenkins had been retired, Fos beat out a missed third strike, stole second, went to third on a bad peg by Al bright and scored when Untz singled to left; Magers walked; Fish slam med one at Cox who messed It up while Untz scored. In the eighth Hunnicutt, Eckardt and Weeks sin gled in succession, sousing the sax; “Pole” Jenkins smiled a pleased smile and proceeded to live up to his name by poling one down the third base line so hot it scorched Hoepner’s pants scoring Hunnicutt and Eck ardt. Jenkins pulled up at second. That the tall boy had control as well as curves is evidenced by the fact that he didn’t walk a single batter. The score: C.

It’d great to be popw lar. Hazlehurst, McComb and Crystal Springs have a habit of saving their best bets in the pitching line to send In against Brookhaven. Fine! The best they-ve got can’t keep Brook haven out of the lead in the Truck ing Belt League. BALL PLAYERS GRATEFUL. Mgr. Ham Fish has asked us to say that the Brookhaven ball play ers, their wives and their sweethearts desire to express their sincere ap preciation tor the sumptuous supper and delightful dance given them by the people of Brookhaven Wednes day night at Brown’s Wells. "The players and myself will always re member the occasion With much pleasure, and will ever have a warm spot in our hearts for the splendid people of Brookhaven. Finer folks never lived, and all of us Join in voicing a promise that we’ll always boost for the best city in the south” added the manager.

C. R. R. SHOF ‘ Faulkner Will Not State Whet] , er or Not Road Will Move Industry. It became known today th , Brookhaven was making a strong b; for the removal of the Hattiesbui terminal shcfos of the Mississip' Central railroad to that city, an asked about the matter, L. E. Pauli nef, general manager of the systen issued the following statement: "We have been needing a rounc house at. Brookhaven for some tim and the present strike has suggests the wisdom of establishing in con nection with this round house a sho equipped to take care of all emergen cy work. We will thereby havb tw shops and the closing of one of then for an indefinite period will not in terfere with the qperation of th road, "The citizens of Brookhaven havi offered us liberal and attractive in ducements to move our shops t< Brookhaven.”. Asked specifically if there was anj probability of the shops being mov ed away from .here because of strike conditions, or any other reason, Mr Faulkner Bald, “I have given you a statement and do not care to further discuss the matter.” A dispatch from Brookhaven tc the Memphis Commercial Appeal refers to an‘offer made to the Mis sissippi Central by Brookhaven citi cens. The dispatch follows: "A 12-acre site has been selected for the location here of the Missis sippi Central roundhouse and shop for temporary repairs. The shop is located at present at Hattiesburg and the change is anticipated be cause Brookhaven, being situated half-way UCtween Hattiesburg and Natchez, terminals of the Mississip pi Central railroad, is the logical point and because Brookhaven busi ness men are giving the railroad au thorities hearty co-operation. “Leroy Morris, general freight agent of the M. C., came from Hat tiesburg to confer with Brookhaven citizens, asd the selection of the lot on the “Y” made by the Inter section of the Mississippi Central with the Illinois Central In the nor thern part of town, was the result. “The acquisition of the sbopB would nean the addition to Brookhaven’s jopulation of 40 families." Business men of Hattiesburg to-! lay are discussing the possibility of he removal of the Bhops. Such a itep. they said, would prove ex remely detrimental to the business nterests of the efty, as both the rail road and employees of the railroad ire purchasers of supplies of various cinds In- large quantities.—Hatttea mrg American. LRE GOOD ROADS WORTH THEIR COST. (Among the most recent graduates f the Brookhaven High School, who eceived’ honors of the class of 1921 2, was Eben Bee, third son of Mr. nd Mrs. E. M. Bee. Beside winning he Tulane scholarship offered the Irst honor student, Eben won the oedal for best essay, offered by the nterstate Trust and Banking Co., of Jew Orleans. The Leader is indebt d to the awarding bank for a copy f the prize essay, which follows): All values are relative. The real rorth> of anything depends upon the teed of it and the end it serves.

The cost of constructing and main lining good roads per mile varies j widely, according to natural co'ndit ons; but be it great hr moderate, I :beir worth can only be estimated [tom the standpoint of benefit to in iividuals, the state and nation. Looking backward, we find that? good roads, a3 an economic necessi ty toward great achievement, is one Df the outstanding records of early Greek and Roman history. These peoples built highways as a pre-re quisite to their Journeys of con*««et and for the transportation of eom merce. Early English history hear* records of great highways leading from London, when it had only two hundred inhabitants. These high ways were probably built by the Gauls many years previous. Unques tionably the great railway systems of later times superseded the neces sity of good roads In some directions; but these, we must remember, oper ate between the large and small dis tributing centers; and good roads to carry commodities from and bring them to the railway points, serve as an adjunct to the larger carriers. If we were living in the latter years of the nineteenth century wc might say that we could do without good roads, since the ox-drawn and mule-drawn wagons of those day* could travel over the rough roads at a slow rate of speed with small loads. Such was the status of rural travel twenty years ago; but this is the'daj of automobiles. Cars and trucks ol all kinds and sixes travel our roadi daily, carrying progress In manj ways. And good roads have be conn more than a luxury. They are at absolute necessity to the demands ol present day conditions. There woulc be a great property loss sustained 1 fr-oicrh* tmpks as well as nassen ger cars, had to travel over rough ungravelled roads, not only the au tomobile, but the load It carries ii most instancees. No mechanism li proof against Jolts and Jars; am the wear and tear on a truck or car which is of course greater or less according to the condition of th road over which it travels, is a pro portionate damage. While some loads are nor llabl to damage, because of jolting, other are. For instance, consider th trucking and egg industries. Whei vegetables become bruised they de cay very soon, and are culled out a the markets. Hence we see th great importance of safeguardin them against bruise, so they ma | reach the markets in good conditior Let us review some of the concret l improvements in educational, Indus i trial and social ocnditions, due i i large part to the advent of goo : roads and automobiles, not forge! ! ting that the latter depend upon th : former for their greater value.

While tbe amount derived thereupon is by mr meane adequate to defray tbe expenses of road-building and maintenance it is an asset not to be overlooked.
