Asks Cooperation of Parents and Children in Work. Years ago a poet philosopher re minded us that; "New time.» demaud new measures aod new men, The law tb«t in our fathers* day Aod doubtless atter us some purer scheme Will be worked out by the wiser men tbao we, Made wiser by the steady growth of time." For years that "steady .Growth of truth" has brought neater the twakeniag of our educational con science until we now realize that the world bas advanced and is in fact outgrowing an educational system to which we kave clung because it was considered best in our fathers' time. So now we are trying out a "purer scheme" of education that shall reach through our state institutions, through the modéra consolidated schools into the very homes and lives of our people. Some of the factors that are working out this "purer scheme" are consolidated . schools, good roads, agricultural high schools, extension work by the State col lege, farm and borne demonstration work, including pig, corn poultry aad canning clubs. For years the U. S. Department and State Colleges have dooe a magnificent work in training the farmer and bis son to build up the toil, care for the live stock, the use of farm machinery, and to conduct the farm work with effi ciency and economy. But' until a few years ago uotbing was doue to help the home in a comfortable aad healthy way, to prepare the meals with reference to the needs of the family, to conduct the household with economy of time and money. Every man knows today that be is more important than any Percheron horse or Berk* shire pig, and if it is important for him to bouse the cattle in a sani tary way and to feed them a bal anced ration, bow much more im portant for bis wife and daughter to kuow bow to make a healthful aod comfortable home and to feed him a balanced ration. Tbe economic side of the club work is of great importance under tbe extstiog circumstances. Tbe Canning and Poultry Clubs are giving tbe women and girls an op portunity to make tbe money they need and at tbe same time give them the business training they require for supplymg borne con veniences or comforts for a higher education and for simple pleasures. Tbe average girl or woman may have all tbe comforts and conven- iences of the borne, but sbe does uot koow tbe value of money, either by earning it or by spending it judiciously. It is said that 85 per cent of the insurance money left to women is lost by injudicious investments, lack of training and dishonesty of those they bave to trust. - Tbe big moral questions in volved in tbe economic side of the Club Work must not be unmen tioned. We bear a great deal about women rushing into the husiness world, but close observa tion shows that about 85 per cent of these women are girls about tbe age ot your high school girls. It is somebody's fault or serious mis fortune that so many thousands of these girls are in cheap stores for eight, ten and twelve hours, a day and liviDg to cheap, crowded bouses because of less than a liv ing wage. Since tbe canning and poultry clubs luraisb a means for these girls to make tbe money they need without leaving Lome, then a can of tomatoes and a doz en eggs become ot momentous importance. I am not so much interested in tbe contents of these packages except as tbe evidence of tbe ideals we are putting into tbe minds ot our girls. Tbe best place for a girl is at home. Tbe Industrial Clubs for Girls aod Boys are being made a part of tbe regular school work and a means of connecting school with tbe homes, and are helping to solve tbe social and ecouomic problems. I have been recently appointed County Demonstration AgeDt of Home Economics, and I bespeak for myself tbe hearty co operation of all who are interested in tbe welfare of our girls, either collect ively or individually. I shall need tbe encouragement and help of parents aod teachers, especially, and as you, should your girls feel inclined to join, do Dot discourage them, but help them to start. - I am ready and anxious to an* swer all calls, aud will make a visit to all schools iu the county getting ready for organization. MRS. W. T. SHELBY, County Demonstration Agent of Home Economics. Now Lookout.

BigaiUtomt in the late rapid develop ment of ICieaisrippt kas been the state tide good roads movement. Ten years •go there were only thirteen counties Ilk the Skate that were putting out any dffbrta on road building, and some of these were of the crudest Today, just ene short decade past, practically ev ery one of the seventy-eight counties ot this Stale Is actively engaged in bu ildin g permanent roadbeds along the most prominent highways, and al most before one road can be complet ed, plans are being laid for opening up other outlets, whefeby the farmers may more easily market their produce. So perfect, Indeed, is the highway system in a number of the counties, that many of the agriculturists now transfer their produce by auto truck to the shipping point or market place, and the old lumbering farm wagon, with its clogged wheels and mud-be spattered sides to now almost a thing of the past. Something more than ten million dollars has been put into Mississip pi's highways since the beginning of this movement, and among tho notable 1 benefits accruing as a civic invest ment must be mentioned a marked impetus to the establishment of con solidated schools whereby the country child now has the advantage of a high school education as well as a more ex tended scope of association and en? vlronmentj the promotion of all com munity activities; the encouragement of rural mail deliveries, and the plac ing of the opportunities, and enjoy ment of city life within easy reach of the farmer and his family. All this and much more for less ac tual cost than the "mud tax" of lost time, damage and distress to which the country man was erstwhile a prey when he watched the olouds in misery, fearing that If he got the rain needed to make his crops grow the roads would become impassable, so that whatever truck he had on hand would rot before he could get to town with it. It is estimated that this old "mud tax" cost the farmers more in actual dollars and cents than all his other taxes combined. While the ten million dollars already expended has given Mississippi the nucleus for a splendid highway sys tem, it will be necessary to spend three times that much before this sys tem shall be complete. To secure the money for this purpose within a rea sonable time without an additional taxation it is essential that the State's population be increased and more of her idle lands put into use with a cor responding increase in tax values on what had been waste property. As a definite step to this end the Mississippi Centennial Exposition will bring many thousands of people here to whom the unsurpassed natural re sources of this State have been hither to as a sealed book. The long stretches of cutover lands will hold an alluring appeal for home seekers who have come and seen with their own eyes what perseverance and thrift may accomplish in this land of golden opportunity. With eaeh tea acre field that is planted the State will be enriched by an additional tax value of forty dollars. Thus may our waste lands be expected, within the next ten years, to bloom into thou sands of tidy Utfie farms and villages, between which smooth highways will run as the natural arteries of com merce. And all his will be primarily superinduced by the great attraction and advertising value of the Centen nial Exposition. CENTENNIAL NOT A LOCAL AFFAIR A purely loeal enterprise la seldom a very large affair, so that it is imper ative the people should understand that the Mississippi Centennial Expo sition is in no way a Gulfport exposi tion. That the big show is essentially a statewide enterprise, for all Missis sippi and to be made up of aU of Mis sissippi's best in every way and from every remote corner. That Gulfport has only such part in the affair as may have every other city,, town and community In the State—that of ex ploiting all its resources and advan tages before the eyes of the thousands of people who will he attracted to the exposition. That this exposition is a giant OPPORTUNITY made by Mississipplans for all Mississippi and that even from its very inception the project Is designed to foster the well being and future prospects of the most remote corner of the State.
