Jackson News: MISSISSIPPI'S WHEAT CROP. One hundred thousand acres in wheat is Mississippi's aim for this fall. Every farmer in the state will be asked to plant at least 10 per cent of his acreage, and Delta plant ers will be requesled to plant a larger percentage, r.s the crop has been found to be more profitable there than in other sections of the state. One hundred thousand acres should yield something like tree mil lion bushels of wheat, and that would be worth about six million dollars. Not such a bad sum for Mississippi farmers to add to heir bank ac count. The patriotic side of the matter at present is more important, however, than the pecuniary. The nation needs the wheat to win the war and we have the land upon which to grow the wheat. That is the whole problem in a nutshell. The wheat growing campaign will be waged with PIGCLY-WIGGLY STORE. A Piggly-Wiggly store is to be established in Columbus, F. B.

' LIDE'S SIRLO STORE Phone 502 Columbus, Miss. TAKE PHOTOGRAPHS AT NIGHT Handicaps of Fog and Darkness Have Been Overcome by Development of New Process. Neither fog nor darkness handicaps the supereyes of-the war department signal corps' cameras, according to Fdward llunyferf ord, who describes the remarkable progress of wartime a rial photography in Everybody's. Lla gives some Interesting examples: "I have seen a photograph of a wan ing moon over Rome taken by the nt'v process. It is the first real pic ture of the moon that I have ever seen, although I formerly attempted the thing myself. Most of the moonlight pictures that one sees are 'fakes,' made by photographing the sun In various unusual and artistic phases. But this was real. One could see the tiny pools of water standing In the uneven, places of the flagging, the flickering street lamps at the corner. A picture whose reality almost makes It uncanny. And the photographer who took the picture In the rain was ar rested by a gendarme as being mental ly unsound, lie was only released when he took a picture of the lieuten ant at the police station and proved beyond a question that he could make good portraits by artificial light. "I have seen photographs made by this new process from the front row of a theater balcony during the progress of the play; others made In church during vespers and Illumined entirely by the candles upon the high altar. The process 4s very new and It Is very wonderful. Moreover, It Is susceptible of adaptation to night observation, both from airplanes and upon the lund." SPIRIT OF AMERICA TODAY, Veteran's Pathetio Gift Showed That His Heart Still Beat High With Patriotlo Fervor. An old man, thin and bent with the years of hardships plainly marking his wrinkled face, stood on a station plat form at an Indiana town recently as a train bearing a party of young men registrants to CainD Tavlor stopped. The old man wore a. faded blue uni form, the badge of the Civil war. He had a message for the young men who were to be enrolled In Uncle Sam's great army, and soon he was surround ed by a group of young fellows. "I wasn't counting on getting to talk to so many of you boys," he told them tremulously. "I Just came down to give something to one of Uncle Sam's new soldiers." He drew a parcel from under hl coat and opening it displayed a pair of almost perfectly knitted socks. "They ain't much for my country," he apolo gized, "but they will help some young fellow to fight better. These don't look like much for a soldier to give, but I knitted them myself and I bought the yarn out of my pension money." A thin fellow got the socks because the old soldier thought he would need them most. The train pulled out and the little old soldier went back home to knit another pair of socks for an other young poldler. FOR SALE A nice Upright piano in good condition. Will sell cheap.
