Rooster Takes a Ride,
It is quite often that tram pi
beat their way on freight trains,
but to find a "hebo" rooster is
the latest Mr. David Chambley,
a popular conductor on the
Southern Railway in Mississippi,
who lives in Columbus, has in
his posession(a 'Monster' chicken,
which he caught the past week
beating his way from Pheba to
Stewart, a distance of 49 miks.
Often times pjultry get to ride
in box cars or coops, but the
rooster arrested by Mr. Cha.n
bley road the entire distance sit
ting on the break beam under
the car. Whether the "gentle
man" boarded the train at Pheba
is not known, but it was at this
station he was first seen.

Tomorrow will mark the close of the twenty
ninth annual session of the Industrial Institute anp
College. Commencement exercises at this great
Institution are of paramount interest to Columbus
as well as to people throughout the state. Many
visitors are here to enjoy the delightful program
incident to the close of the school.
Notwithstanding the fact that the fiery tongue
of the slanderer has boen hurled at the manage
ment, the past session has been the most har
monious and successful in the history of the school.
The unjust criticisms seem to have quickened the
conscience of the students and they have put forth
their very best efforts with most gratifying re
sults. It is interesting and pleasing to note that each
year under President H. L. Whitfield's manage
ment the college has grown in scope and magni
tude. The original idea and design of the indus
trials have been adhered to and also the new
features of practical education so much discussed
over the country, have been incorporated, making
it rank with the best schools in the country.

It will require one gallon to each 15 pounds ol

The regulations of the state board of health do
not allow any person to maintain fly breeding or
fly feeding places. Violators of these laws are be

been instructed to enforce these regulations where
ever they are found to be violated.
Town officials should awaken to the necessitj
of enforcing these regulations: and they do not
need other laws.

Under the direction of the state board of
health, Dr. W. II. Rowan, chief sanitary inspector,
ha3 inaugurated a determined fight against the
fly. Dr. Rowan not only asks the hearty support
of the city and county health officers of the state,
but also of the people themselves, in the hope that
sentiment may be aroused generally to the im
portance of ridding the homes and places of bus
iness of the pest which is known to be distributor
of many diseases, such as typhoid and tubercu
losis. The following circular has been sent to county
and city health officials of Mississippi:
Kill flies where they breed rather than where
they feed. Flies breed principally in horse manure
and other filth.

ihould be hauled off twice a week.

Dun's Review for the week just ended goes
thoroughly into business conditions, and contains
reports from business centers in various parts of
the country. In reading these reports the tone of
quiet optimism which prevails is noticeable. Crops
are in good shape and promise a big yield. Busi
ness is quiet generally that is true, but the sum
mer season is on, and underlying the whole situa
tion is a vein of confidence in a fine business year
before us. It is a fact; business and finance have
passed through a trying period first the tariff
and then the banking law. True, both were much
worse scared than hurt, but the nerves are just
now getting back to normal. There is nothing the
matter with the country and nothing the matter
with business except that it is cautiously feeling
its way, just as individaul are wisely cautious.
