cured and fresh produce, candies,

eliminating all expense of delivery
and bookkeeping hire (necessary
when credit plan is under way)
they have been able to save a
great amount on their general ex
pense account. This saving is be
ing divided with every customer
that buys a nickel's worth at the
grocery. Because this enterpris
ing firm saves money by doing
away with delivery and bookkeep
ing, and by paying cash for all it
buys, it can sell for less than
other groceries. The proprietors
are content to make a living profit
and the reasonableness of their
prices has made a great impres
sion on the housekeepers of this
city. Each day more and more
people are getting the habit of
"taking your choice, paying your
money and carrying it horn?." It
means money saved, and any con

is popular with all patriotic folk.

PETITION FOR PARDON.
To the Mississippi State Board of
Pardons, Jackson, Miss.:
We, the undersigned petitioners,
citizens of Lowndes eounty and State
of Mississippi, would respectfully rep-)
resent unto your honorable body that
at the April term of the Circuit
Court of said Lowndes County, A. D.
1915, Pleax Petty, arraigned under
an indictment for "Murder" waived
trial and plead "Guilty of Man
slaughter" and was sentenced to
the penitentiary for ten (10) years,
where he has served ever since rnerl
itoriously. We ask that your hon
orable body grant unto this negro a
full and complete pardon.
The facta in the case are as fol
His wife was guilty of criminal in
timacy with another negro and he
learned that they were at another
house at early ntght some few
miles from his home. "He went after
her and, expecting trouble with the
man, took his gun for the purpose of
defense. He found them together
and as the man refused to give her
up, the trouble started and the other
party who was a man of violent tem
per .started for him with threats and
in a rude, threatening manner, with
every manifestation of angry deter
mination to do him personal violence.
The witnesses were all partisans of
the domestic trespasser, but, the evi
dence indicated, a strong suspicion
that he was armed. Petty threw his
gun to his shoulder quickly and fired
at his advancing foe, and some of
the shot struck him in the left
shoulder, but the main body of the
charge went into his wife, who had
thrown herself on the party to pro
tect him, and caused her death;
which has been the source of the
deepest reirret to the petitioner ever
since, for it was entirely accidental,
and without a semblance of intent.
