It is a well-known fact that it is almost impossible to dope out an A. and M.-University game. Year after year critics have decided one eleven to have the edge on the other, only to have their predictions utterly up set. No better example of this could be cited than in 1911, the last time thesetwo teams met. Before the game it was freely predicted that "Ole Miss" would win by a large score. The game resulted in a 6-0 victory for A. and M. The same thin? has been true in other years when at tempts have been made to compare the relative strength of the teams. While the early season record of the Aggies has been a little better than that of "Ole Miss," those who have followed these games for a number J of years are giving that fact but lit tie weight. Louisiana State Univer sity defeated "Ole Miss" 28-0, while the same team beat A. and M. 10-0 Both teams have lost by large scores important games. Auburn beat A and M. 26-0, while Vanderbilt ran up a still larger score against the Uni versity. A perusal of the results of pre vious games between A. and M. and the University shows that each team has won five games, with one game a tie. The following is the results of the games that have been played be tween the teams: 1901 A. & M. 17; University 0. 1902 A. & M. 0; University 23. 1903 A. & M. 6; University 6 1904 A. & M. 5; University IT 1905 A. & M. 11; University 0. 1906 A. & M. 5; University 29. 1907 A. & M. 15; University 0. 1908 A. & M. 44; University 6. 1909 A. & M. 5; University 9 1910 A. & M. 0; University 30. 1911 A. & M. 6; University 0 Total points scored by the Univer- sity of Mississippi 114; total points a by A. and M. 120. r,,: N rvr: The firm of Robertson and Compa ny, wholesale and retail merchants, j who enjoy oneo f the largest patron- I ages in the city, are making improve- ments in their building.

COLUMBUS, MISS., 4 TO H THE 10 OF DECEMBER EXACT DAI E OF CEREMONY HAS NOT BEEN ANNOUNCED BY THE PRESIDENT. Washington, Nov. 1. It was an nounced formally today at the Whit?

Hughes was under arrest in connection with the murder of La rue Holloway, a well known young man of this place, who was kijled near here on the night of October 31. Otho Fortenbury, the jailer, who occupied quarters on the second floor, was awakened about 1 o'clock this morning by three masked men who, after forcing him to give up the key to the cell occupied by Hughes, bound him to his bed. The lynchers worked quietly, Fortenbury told the sheriff, forcing Hughes to put on his clothes and leaving the building without awakening more than two of the several prisoners in adjoining cells. These were unable to say how mary men were in the ru-.y. The jailer, who v. as found and re leased by a boarder in Fortnhurv'r household several hours later, re ported to the sheriff and district attorney, and posses immediately be gan a search for the prisoners and his abductors. A short distance out of the city a posse found a new felt hat with a rope tied across the crown lying in the middle of the road, one end of the rope stretched ' across the high way and down a cow path. A few yards further on Hughes body was found swinging from a tree. According to the authorities, per sons who witnessed the killing of Holloway in a lumber camp near here, said that Hughes shot the young man in the back without pro vocation. Holloway, at the time it was said, was. engaged in a fight with another person while Hughes was an onlooker. Hughes at first defied arrest but C. P. Jones, who witnessed the killing, took him into custody and delivered him to the deputy sheriff. Hughes formerly resided at Isabel, La., but came here several months ago to accept a foremanship with a lumber concern. Herman Ridder Diet. York, Nov. 1.

Preuiier A quith'a speech in the House of Com mons today on the policy and plans of Great Britain, concerning which he did not disclose much more than was already known, monopolizes the attention of all Europe tonight, and the fierce fighting, although it has been severe on some of the fronts, is receiving little thought. The Austro-Germans and the Bul garians continue their advance in Servia and are daily drawing closer to Nish making the position of the Serbian army in the north more pre carious. It is believed here, however that the Servians will b4 able to withdraw to the mountains and re sist the invaders until the assistance whjfh the entente allies have prom ised, draws some of 1fi-'ye.ssure from .them The British and trench troops landed at Saloniki, already are doing thisjn the south, and news of a Russian contingent, which is various ly reported as having landed at Var na or to be approaching Bulgaria through Roumania, is anxiously awaited. On the western fronts, except for some fighting in the Champagne, there is little or no activtiy, but on the eastern front at least three or four big battles arei n progress. The Germans continue their ef forts to approach Riga from the west, the Russians are attacking west of Dvinsk, and among the lakes south of the city, while attacks and counter attacks are almost continu ous along the Styr river in Volhynia, and along the Stripa in Galacia.

Wilburn, a farmer living near the line of Jones and Jasper counties, in this state, claims to have the oldest bale of cotton in the Unit ed States. This bale was grown thirty-six years ago by Mr. Wilburn's father. This was before the build ing of the New Orleans & Northeast ern Railroad, when cotton grown in this section had to be carried either to Shubuta or Enterprise for market ing. Roads were bad and the prices were low the year the bale was pro duced, and each succeeding season for several years found cotton selling at still lower price, hence the senior Mr. Wilburn decided to store the bale in his barn and keep it for his chil dren. The old gentleman has been dead six years and the son has decid ed to preserve the bale of cotton in definitely. Supervisor') ScMion.

Jackson, Miss., Nov. 1. Dr. Jos eph Goldberger, of the United States public health service, has proven bis theory that pellagra, a disease that has spread alarmingly during the past few years, is produced by un balanced rations. The Mississippi State Board of Health today officially announced tne results or ir. Oouiuerger s ex periments with a pellagra squad at the Uankin state convict farm. Twelve prisoners were seleeted for the experiment, each being promised a pardon in the event they followed strictly the diet prescribed by Dr Goldberger, which excluded milk fresh lean meat, eggs, peas and beans. The experiment commenced on Feb. 15 last, and a diagnosis today shows that six of the prisoners have pellagra in pronounced form, while two others show symptoms sugges tive of pellagra. Four Jackson physicians accom panied Dr. Goldberger to the convict farm and confirmed the diagnosis. The prisoners who have developed the disease will be ' immediately placed under curative treatment and Dr. Goldberger is confident that they will be restored to normal health within a few weeks.
