EAST MISSISSIPPI HMTirh
and WEST ALABAMA MJK
An American Girl.
On Thanksgiving day there was
a general hog killing throughout
east Mississippi and west Ala
bama and some fine hogs were
slaughtered. Most ot the farm
ers of this section have for several
when Miss Evie, his lovely young
daughter, was married to Mr. T.
u. uivmgs, a popular . young
farmer, of the Rye neighborhood.
A host of friends, including this
Bureau, join in wishing their path
years made enough meat for their i through life may be strewn with
flowers of blessings and that no
trouble will meet them on their
We regret to report Miss Janie
Groves quite sick.

rnanKSfriving exercises were
held at Woodlawn last Thursday,
and thoroughly enjoyed by all
who attended. Dinner was served
on the ground and the Rev. Gal-

of the occasion.

own use but this, year they have
made more than ever and a nice
lot of east Mississippi and west
Alabama hams will be put on the
market in Columbus. Mrs. D. M.
Wood, of Flinthill, has for several
years put up sausage enough to
do her family from one hog kill
ing time to the next and it seems
as though all of our farmers'
wive3 could do the same. Mrs.
AVood puts her sausage up in
fruit jars, first frying the meat
and putting in the jars covers
with the grease that was used in
frying. If there is not enough to
cover the meat heat fresh lard to
a frying stage and pour in enough
to cover. Meat canned in this
way will be as fresh next summer
as when fried.
At these hog killings there is
often held a family reunion. One
of these enjoyable affairs occurred
at the home of Mr. Fulton Partain
on Thursday when the young folk
gathered in, killed the hogs, made
the sausage, dried the lard and
made crackling bread. Sweet,
happy home! No place like home
on the farm in east Mississippi
and west Alabama.
Mr. Henry Watson, of Clay
county, has his eye on this sec
tion. While others are investing
their money in town property Mr.
Watson is investing his in farm
ing lands in northeast Lowndes.
Mr. Watson must have faith in
the railroad coming this way. It
is reported that he wants to in
vest $150,000 in land in the Cale-!
donia section. Whether the rail
road is built or not this is the
ideal farming country of the state.
Mr. Sam Dodson, better known
as Sheriff Dodson. has opened a
cotton market on Seedtick road
and is offering 11c and telling the
farmers to take no less from any
buyer. He is paying 35c for eggs
and expects to sell them in Co
lumbus for Christmas at 50c.
Last Sunday at two o'clock p.
m., near New Salem, at the home
of Mr. Nealy Kolb, Miss Nora
Cook was married to Mr. Robert
Adair, Rev. J. A. Egger officiat
ing. The bride is the sister of
Messrs. John and Tom Cook, a
young lady of many charms and
graces; the groom is a prosperous
young farmer of Monroe county.
The marriage was witnessed by a
' large number of admiring friends
who join this Bureau in wishing

Mr. C. E. West, of Flinthill, is
three lengths ahead in potato
raising. He raised this year on
three-fourths of an acre 215
bushels. At 40 cents a bushel
the crop would bring S86 or
$114. G5 an acre. Could King
Cotton beat this ?
The Caledonia lodge A. F. & A.
M. on last Saturday held an in
teresting meeting. Mr. C. E.
West, of Flinthilli was elected
Worshipful Master, Mr. E. O.
Harper, Senior Warden, Mr. R. A.
Kilburn, Jun. Warden, and J.: L.
Egger, Secretary. This lodge
continues to do business. Sev
eral new applications are before
the lodge and three or four candi
dates under making.
Mrs. John Darnell, who was re
ported in last week's paper as
being quite sick at Mrs. Jern
igan's, was well enough to return
to her home in Caledonia last
Tuesday and is rapidly improving.
There is an epidemic among the
young people of east Mississippi
and west Alabama, Every few
days we hear of a runaway couple
getting tied up in Columbus and
two or three a day getting the
knot tied at their respective
homes. Last Sunday evening a
new case broke out in tile home Kaufman Bros. Shoes are the

,F all the charming things then
To make this world a bright
I choose and know I am not far
From picking out the right one , .
A girl of seventeen or so,
A figure trim from head to toe, .
Gowned tastefully and neatly.
Look in her eyes what irells of truth.
Of sympathy and kindness
But not too long, enraptured youth,
Lest looking brings love's blindness
An angel? Yes, and any one
Who knows gold is not copper
Can see that she is full of fun, , '
Provided it is proper.
I must confess, if Father Tim
Would only let me stay so, -I'd
stop at twenty-one, and I'm
Not half ashamed to say so. r
I envy much the lucky man -
The joy of his beginning
To love this fair America
His wooing and his wlnfiing.
Oh, who can lose his faith in this
Our best beloved nation?
Here is our hope; we cannot miss
Applause and approbation.
One dare not quite disparage one's
Own country until others
Can show such prizes for their sons
And such prospective mothers!
