A Bank For
Since the establishment of this Bank it has
always made a specialty of handling the accounts
of farmers and extending to them every accom
modation in keeping with safety. People residing
outside of Corinth receive many advantages by
keeping an account with us, not the least of which
is their ability to borrow money for the exten
sion of their business interests.

Corinth banks have plenty of money for the handling of Corinth territory cotton.

freight rates ; from no point in the Corinth territory does Memphis enjoy lower rates than
Corinth's handling and reshipping charges are much lower than at Memphis.
A Memphis bank was advertising for sale some bonds of a Memphis compress and
This advertisement shows gross earnings in one season $2.00 a bale.
There is an additional warehousing, stoage and handling charge made on cotton han
dled by Memphis factors; besides the insurance and commission expenses.
At Corinth the compress and warehousing company's earnings for storage and hand
ling cotton last season were less than 85 cents per bale, which includes all income from

TWO REELS OF LAUGHS
EYE ON APPOINTEES
Sheriff-elect W.L. Madden, who
will take the oath of office on the
first Monday in January, 1916,
announces that he has made ap
pointment for jailor, to succeed
J. E. Potts, in the person of Ed
Forsyth, who will serve for one
year's time, after which, he will
make another appointment to help
him through the next year, and so
on, until he disposes of this ap
pointment throughout the full
term of four years.
He also states that he will give
the appointaient of deputy sheriff
to a farmer in Alcorn county, one
who is competent to assume the
duties imposed upon him, and one
who will handle the situation
without prejudice and with jus
tice to all alike.
Besides the appointments men
tioned above, made by Sheriff
Madden, there are some to be dis
posed of by the new board of su
pervisors, who take charge of
their duties on the first Monday
in January, such as foreman of
Hne county convict gang, keeper
of the poor house, and janitor at
