It has taken the people of Columbus a long
time to realize that if they all pull together
something worth while may bo accomplished.
but on the other hand when every lellow is
working for himself and criticizing those that
try to boost the town, things will certainly stay
in a rut.
However, it h very evident that a new era
has dawned, ami things have taken on new
hope. Many citizens have gone to work. in ear
nest to help in the movement to develop the
mat' iuI interests of Col.jmbus and show to the
outside world the natural advantages here.
Determination has been shown, that hereto

PAST AND PRESENT.
A Chicago writer has figured that the "sit
nation in the South today is that the cotton pro
ducer, the backbone of the financial structu're
f the South, has been living economically, ant
has been receiving twice what he got last year
while last year he had been spending freely
and received half of what he expected." All o
which is quite true. The lollowmg oxamp
hows the difference. The cotton planters gath

Mosiiuitoot and Snakes.
Gulfport, Miss., Oct. 23. F. De-
deaux, a cattleman who owns a num
ber of cattle on Cat Island, reports
a losa of thirty head of beef cattle,
whose loss he attributes to the sting
of mosquitoes. His storm losses he
places at 20 head, and from both
sources he estimates that his loss is
over $1,000.
Speaking of snakes, he says they
drifted there by the thousands dur
ing the recent storms and says that
he is sure that he killed 1,200 or
1,500 reptiles, 500 of which were
slain in one day. They were found
leaving the driftwood going' to' the
island. Twenty-six of this number
were the deadly rattlesnake, and the
skeleton of this host of snakes re
mained on the sands for several days.
This record perhaps entitles Mr. De-
deaux to the world's championship
as a snake killer. Mr. Pedeaux lives
just outside of Gulfport, and visited
m island after the storm to Iook
after his cattle.

SPLENDID RECORD IS MADE
IN HANDLING OF PASSENGERS
Atlanta, Ga. More than sixteen and
a half million passengers a number
greater than the combined population
of Virginia, North Carolina, South Car
olina, Georgia, Alabama, Tennessee
and Kentuckywere transported by
Southern Railway during the year end
ed June 30 with only one fatal Injury
to a passenger while on a train and
that one was standing on a car plat
form In direct violation of the com
pany's roles.
This excellent record was shown in
the official figures given out Indicat
ing the high degree of safety that
has been attained in the handling ot
Southern Railway passenger trains.

tion. ing that during the same period
twelve persons riding in automobiles
were killed in accidents at public
highway crossings, every one of which
accidents could have been prevented
had the driver of the car observed
the familiar warning, "Stop, Look and
Listen." !
Plant plenty of green-feed for the
poultry to graze on in the winder and
spring. Experiments show that hens
will lay twice as many eggs if allow
ed to graze. Half an acre for twenty
five hens is none too much. Several
acres of wheat, oats or rye near the
I house will insure plenty for the flock.
' Remember this is the time of the
year that the young chickens have
the sore head. Give them plenty of
Epsom salts in their feed or drink
ing water. If the disease breaks out
with iodine and give salts. Seperate
