VOLUME XXI—No. 20. CORINTH MISSISSIPPI, THURSDAY, MAY 25, 1916. Subscription: $1.00 Per Year Il OF liOSIRY Saturday's Daily. W. V. Browjiing, a member of lie firm of Langley Clothing Mfg. Co., of Waco, Texas, left this morning on his return home, after a few days' visit here. Friday afternoon. Mr. Brown ing met a number of the members of the B. M. C. when he present ed a proposition to move the Langley Clothing Mfg. Co., here, either the main factory or to es tablish a branch. I lis proposition was to furnish $30.000 capital, in machinery, material, a charter, etc., against $20.000 capital in cash from the people of Corinth. Geo. A. Hazard, president of the Club, presided at the meeting and submitted the proposition to other members of the Club. The $20.000 cash capital did not appeal to the Club, but the i j J i | ! ! I ! t < it y ollVrei 1 tiie - concern a free I HTIIl aiHMit site and exemption from city water and taxes for ti\<' \ Mi (■<' I S. ■. Brow inner stated that he l-ad been of fered better proposi t ions at otlu *r phu ng. but that he would submit the offer of Cor inth to the president of the con cern, and that he and the B. M. ( . here would take the matter up by <•< rrespondence. ftlr. Browning realized the fact that Corinth is in the cotton sec tion, and that the material for the manufacture of the garments made by this concern—overalls— could be easily obtained here. He also stated that the labor that cost him $12 a week at Waco, un der a union scale of wages, he could get here for at least $7. The benefits that would be de rived from a location of the fac tor \- he *e would mean a saving i 40 to 50 cents per dozen m which in the run of ? r would mean much to the cor Thc concern wants to locate in Corinth, and Corinth wants the factory, and permanent site and exemption from taxes and water may probably appeal to the com pany sufficiently to justify the officers to consider the proposi tion.

PARENT-TEACHERS' ASSNJEEKS AID At a recent meeting of the Parent-Teachers' Association it was voted to establish a custom of sending one teacher each year to a summer school. This is being done for the pur pose of gaining inspiratio n and information for the good of our own public school, for the pur pose of bringing into practice at home plans and methods that have been tested, and that will mean progress for our schools and children. The Association and Finance 'Committee have done excellent work this year—they have ex ceeded the most sanguine hopes of the officers, but we still need a small sum to add to our treas ury before we can offer this scholarship to one of the teach ers. Believing there are interested and public-spirited people in Cor inth who will be glad of an oppor tunity to help us, we are making this appeal with the firm convic tion that it will meet with a ready response. W e need $30—will you help us? Send money or check to Prof. F. C. Jenkins, treasurer, or Mrs. S. F. Riley, chairman of the finance committee. We are thanking you in ad vance for what we fell you can not withhold from an organiza tion that means so much for the good of our children. Mrs. J. S. Lido, Pres. I. I. & C.

If your back gives out; Becomes lame, weak or aching; If urinary troubles set in, Perhaps your kidneys are "in a bad way." Doan's Kidney Pills are for weak kidneys. Local evidence proves their merit. W. W. Harrison, farmer, R. F. D. No. 8, Corinth, says: "For several years I was in a had way with my back and kidneys. T can't say what caused the trou ble, but at times my back was so lame and painful that I couldn't step over a fence rail. My kid neys acted irregularly and caus ed me to get up often at night. I felt poorly in every way. Dean's Kidney Pills cured me of the aches and pains and removed all kid ney disorders." Price 59c at all dealers. Don't simply £sk for a kidney remedy— get Doan's Kidney Pills—the same that Mr. Harrison had. Fos ter-Milburn Co., I^rops., Buffalo, N. Y. * #*## CORINTHIANS ATTENDING MEETING OF IND. TEL. ASSN.
