Dec. 1. — Bassfleid, near here, is recovering from the thrills of the typical melodrama yesterday morn ing when two yeggmen entered that little town, blew two safes in a little more than an hour, and then escaped with their loot after a pitched battle with O. T. Hathorn In a Bassfleid store. About 4 o’clock yesterday morning, the two safe crackers visited the Bass fleid postofflce, entered the building, re moved the safe from the office, and loaded it onto a Mississippi Central railroad baggage truck. This they at tached to the back of their automobile, and drove off down the road. They then blew the safe, robbed it of |40Q in stamps and currency, ai^d took thb> trou ble to return the safe to the postofflce. Then, apparently unsatisfied, thej' en tered the store of Mr. O. T. Hathorn. The noise of the explosion when the. safe was blown awakened Mr. Hathorn. He discovered the robbers when one of them at. the door of his Btore, shot at bim. He then returned to his home, obtained a shotgun and two pistols, re turned and opened fire. Other neighbors ran out, but ran back to escape chance shots. Little Lavon Hathorn, 11 year old son of Mr. Ha thorn, stood by his father throughout the battle and reloaded his dad’s shot gun while the rest of the neighbors are said to have hidden indoors. Mr. Hathorn was slightly wounded in the hand. He, emptied his shotgun and pistols at the bandit in the doorway of bis store, while the other was making ready for a get-away. Suddenly the sound of an automobile was heard and the two men rode off in a northerly df rection toward Carson, Miss. No trace of them has been found.

SCHOOL CHILDREN PARADE FOR BONDS * Innumerable Children Ask Tour Support for Haw High School Building at Tuesday’s Blectlon. More than eight hundred Public School pupils and their teachers and Superintendent Mr. E. S. Bowlus, marched in parade to the business sec tion of Brookhaven Wednesday after noon as a plea for the issuance pf a hundred and fifty, thousand dollars worth of bonds for a new High School building, which will be voted upon Mon day. They carried banners inscribed with pertinent slogans. Members of the school board, city board, the Rev. J. A. Taylor. Mayor R. S. Butler, and Mayor-elect T. M. Smylie; representa tives of fraternal organizations, the Kiwanis Club, Women’s clubs, charitable organizations, business men, and Parent Teacher Association, with individuals who joined to show their sympathy with the movement, were in the impressive parade. The Brookhaven Playgrounds Band played. Boy Scouts with the lead er carrying an immense American flag marched in military formation. The football team appeared in uniform. The tiniest first grade pupils, too small to march In procession, were a winning "exhibit" as they were thansported in a truck, the only vehicle in the proces sion. Gay-colored caps made of paper or ■cardboard were worn by some of the grades, and the slogans were noteworthy for the appropriateness of their mes sages, their legibility and attractive ness. Of the very numerous messages inscribed upon banners carried by the children, were "We Will Be What You Make Us”, "Help Me and I'll Help You", "Invest in Us and We Will Make You Proud". American flags were nu merous In the procession. Children representative of every church in town marched in the parade emphasizing the fact that the Brookha ven Public School is benefittlng citizens of all denominations. At the junction of West Cherokee and Railroad Avenue, the procession halted before a platform erected for the occa sion, and Hon. A. A. Cohn, member of the School Board, mounted it as master oi ceremonies, trora u, miss i^ucne Harris of the faculty of the High School directed several songs by the student body, and was followed by a number of speakers who urged a vote favorable to the bond issue for the new High School. The Rev. J. A. Taylor made an In vocation. The speakers who expressed their ap proval of the bond issue and explained the necessity for a new school building were: Mayor-elect T. M. Smylle, Mrs. T. Brady, Mrs. E. M. Bee, Messrs. Jay McGrath, W. H. Seavey, W. D. Davis, C. B. Perkins, A. B. Furlow, O. H. Hart man and W. F, Bond, State Superin tendent of Education. Mr. Bond spoke at length giving a resume of Mississippi's progress in edu cation within the last few years. Mis sissippi is almost at the bottom of the list of forty eight states and the ter ritorial possessions of the United States according to an educational survey made about three years ago, but Mr.. Bond said that the United States Commis sioner of Education, Mr. Tigert, told him that Mississippi has made a greater ad vance within the past two or three years than any other state. Mississip pi has more consolidated schools, agri cultural high schools, and teachers' 'homes than any state In the union. Mr. Bond warmly commended Super intendent Bowlus as a school man. The speaker stated that he had ex amined the Brookhaven Public School building and found It to,be overcrowd ed, antiquated and a flre-trap. out of place and misrepnesentative of beau tiful, progressive Brookhaven. He made a strong plea for a new building both as a necessity, and an em blem of Brookhaven’s high attainments in education, business, etc. The parade and program brought the matter of the bond issue to public at tention as nothing else could have done, and was both inspiring and appealing. The Kiwanis Club, which was instru- 1 mental in securing Mr. Bond's presence 1 on the program, had S. G. Irwin to fly ' over the crowd in his “Mississippi" ^ plane as a special demonstration.

Sisters of Henry Bond Oat Light San- i • tanoaa. I Jackson, M4sa. — One of the most ‘ sensational cases pending at this term ' of the Hinds county circuit court was : unexpectedly - settled yesterday after noon when Hattie Slade and Elisa Lott, ‘ sisters of Henry Bond whir-slew Jailer Russ Harris, entered pleas of guilty 1 and were sentenced to six months and * two years in the state penitentiary, re- * spectively. < The settlement was negotiated by 1 their counsel, C. O. Japp, Jr„ and the 1 mild sentences Imposed are taken as a - victory for the two women. The Bond girls have been quite gen- 1 erally reputed in Jackson as desperate |1 women, but it seems that both of them ' have children at home who are of ten- ’ der years and that these children are 1 going to suffer by the sentences imposed ' 6n their mothers. It had been first reported these wo- c men were to be indicted for complicity 1 in the murder of Russ Harris but the f state abandoned this course and elected 1 to prosecute on a charge of carrying a « pistol into the jail , i It was stated that it was evident that f neither of the Bond sisters had expect- l ed their brother to kill anyone with the I ( pistol they gave him but had hoped he i would be able to bluff his way to liber- j t ty. 1 ICre.

This announcement was made in the Satur day Evening Post some months ago. In a moment of leisure — rare moments they are, Indeed, to her—Mrs. Hobbs se lected a name, scribbled a reason for Its selection and sent to the manufacturing company, straightway forgetting all a bout it The notidcation that she is one of the first five is some honor—and $30 worth of silverware is $30 worth of silverware — especially at Christmas time.
