GREENWOOD, M1SSISS!I'l l. SEPTEMBER 3, 1910. PRESIDENT WILSON S RECORD. Whether he knew it all b<J ' vU '> learned some of it since he too... omet, wnttnci ri came from books, adv.p, or ..'as uug out ol his inner consciousness, the w sdom m U son 1 as brought us progress and piospei t he p o, e o.- ää er SÄÄSÄnk de posits S the united Stales increased "1 per cent; our trade balance 227 per cent; agricultural ex ports 44.1 per cent; manufactured exports 155 per cent ; our farm lands are 12.7 per cent more valu able; our industries have increased the value,of their output over nine billion dollars or 41.2 per cent, and carry on their pay roils 23.2 per cent more employes. All this in the past lour years. And it is not mainly the propserity of the first two years of the Wilson administration because in the past two years the wealth of the United States has increased $41,000,000,000. W 7 hen the Democrats point to an increase of $9,400,000,000 in manufactured products let the Republicans be careful about advancing the argu ment that the munitions business has been large and that what Democratic good times we have had is war prosperity. The munitions exports have been only 1 per cent of our manufactured prod ucts, leaving the splendid total of an increase in manufactured products, without including muni tions, of $8,920,000,000. The Federal Reserve Act stops panics, the Ru- ' ral Credits Act gives the farmer government back ing, the Income Tax Law makes the rich pay their fair share .of the expenses of the government which protects them and their property, the fed eral Trade Commission Act protects the public and the business men, and the Clayton Act makes j plain, certain and just, the obscure Sherman Anti-! Trust Law. Then there are the Good Roads Law, i the Smith-Lever Agricultural Education Act and the Child Labor Act, whose ben fits are explained : /' by their titles. And we now have legisla-1 tion as to labor disputes which will, it is hoped, ! remove the threat of the greatest strike of his tory, and end the railroad trouble. Constructive legislation of greater amount and . value in three years and a half than the'Republi can administration gave us in twenty years, pre- j paredness, peace with foreign nations and pros perity at home—that's the Wilson record, presi dent Wilson has in his policies kept the ten com mandments and observed the golden rule, at the same time enabling his fellow citizens to accumu late the Almighty Dollar honestly; he has estab- ! lished justice between the rich and the poor, in spired more good, new laws than anybody ever thought of before and has enforced existing laws without fear or favor. ! ; j 1 THE LIFE WE LIVE. This lite, my friends, is just the thing; one day we weep, the next day we sing; today we whoop, tomorrow we wail, which keeps us all from going stale. And as our days and years advance, we never know just what wiil chance. Tomorrow's mysteries are hid, and-'Mie is sitting on the lid, and what she has in her old J chest can never be by mortal guessed. And that ■ j scNvhy this life's sublime, and why we have so great a time. If we could in the future tread, if i we could see a year ahead, and know just what ' the gods will send, the spice of life would have — end. The unexpected is the stuff that makes this ! planet good enough. At morn you rise, de-! pressed, and say," I fear 'twill be a lonesome day, 1 with none to bruse away my tei irs, or tie sonie I tassels on my ears." And while you rise a I mournful din, your aunt and seven kids blow in, i with baggage packed in trunk and crate, to stay six months, or maybe eight. 'Tis then that you 1 rear up and bless your native earth.—Walt Mason i an Dr. J. T. Dean, the intrepit and persistent > good roads booster of North Carrollton, who some ! time ago secured a charter for t he Jefferson Davis ! Highway Association, has published the following ! V notice: "Notice is hereby given that application J is being made for the copyright, forTghw™ ! signs of the general public print, bust picture of | Jefferson Davis, president of the Confederacy, for 1 the use of the Jefferson Davis Highway Associa- ! tion, domiciled at North Carrollton, Miss., under i act of March 4, 1909, as amended respecting the ! copyright notice." The granting of this applica Hon will perforce enjoin the people who are P push-1 Ing the highway paralleling the Illinois Central 1 Railroad Company's line, and passing through I Durant, from calling their road the Jefferson 1 r Davis Highway. The Jefferson Davis Highway 1 as advocated by Dr. Dean passes through Carrroll ton and Lexington.—Advertiser. : Von Hindcrburg ha.s been appointed to the highest military power in Germany.

According to assistant state agent, C. A. Cobb, the prospects are that the 1917 corn acreage will be greatly increased and if properly selected seed is piamed a one hundred million bushel crop can easily lie realized. "With good seed," he contin , "an increase in yield of from 3 to ö bushels to the acre may be expected the first year. In this connection Mr. Cobb is sending out the following helpful suggestions on selecting seed corn in the field this fall: 1 . The seed stalk should be from 8 to 10 feet UeS tali. 1. The base of the s alk should be large and somewhat flat. 3 . The blades of the seed stalk should be 4 . The seed stalk should taper gently from - " ><■ proli fi c v ar ; ties there should be at! fullv deve ioped oars to each tassel, ^ , e d stalk should be well Placed, onemt each side f the stalk, about four Ut The seed ears should be borne upon short «tout shanks four to five inches long that permit u ' e eaih tu han £ do " n - u - ' j , ,. i !P ucb °. n *- be P aid °1 the Allies as an effort of the Bulgarians to better their positions. It succeeded : vvl *-T°ut much opposition and the Greeks loss was the Buigars gain. 8 . The stalk from which seed ears are to be selected should not occupy more than normal room, should not stand at the end of skips nor at the end of a row. Select a stalk that has fought its way and won. 9. Every stalk in the vicinity of the seed stalk should be well fruited. If barren or weak staiks stand near a normal stalk, the ears from the normal stalk will not be suitable for seed. 10. Be careful to select stalks that are free from disease and that do not stand near diseased stalks. 11 . It will be noticed in going through the field that those stalks that "lay by" last, or that remain growing despite wet or dry spells, are the ones that bear the heaviest ears. This persistent quality is certainly to be desired. 12. Every seed ear should be snugly covered bv the shuck. The wise merchant advertises, and the pur chaser who has his eyes open, goes into the store which keeps in the limelight. A man can't be a fraud if he keeps inviting new people into his doorway.

SAUNDERS, Supt. SHOULD BE IN EVERY HOME. Editor Daily Commonwealth: I am a subscriber to "The Daily Commonwealth" and expect to be as long as I can get it. This is a bright, clean, newsy paper, and it should be in every home in Greenwood and Leflore county. For your information I wish to say, I have just returned from my three months' vacation on the coast, and most of the time was spent in the city of Gulfport, which is about the same size as Greenwood, and while there I was a subscriber to "The Daily Herald," and the daily circulation was about three thousand. Now, Green wood is known far and near to be the "Queen City of the Delta," and the largest cotton receiving town in the State; hence, your paper should have a larger circulation than the Gulfport paper within a short time, if our en terprising citizens will do their duty. Sept. 5, 1916. T. P. PRICE, PRESIDENT CHAS. A. WALKER BUYS A 1917 CADILLAC. The popular and efficient President of the Big Bend Cooperage Company, Mr. Chas. A. Walker, has just pur chased of the Kimbrough Auto Com pany a special four-passenger 1917 Cadillac. This car is the very latest creation in a motor car, being up-to date in every detail. The ear is close coupled, and has the unique distinc tion of being painted that unusual gray color sometimes termed at "Lon don Smoke," which in connection with its swallow-like movements, has the appearance of actually disappearing into space after passing at a resona ble distance from the spectator. This is the first car of this type purchased in Mississippi, hundred pounds lighter than the Stan dard Cadillac Touring car, and is gen erally conceded to have the most metrical lines of any of the 1917 duction in motor cars. The 1917 ial four-passenger Cadillac will be, without doubt, the aristocrat of the road for the 1917 season, The car is several sym pro spec 'POSSUM AND TATERS. 'Possum and Tatars! Urn! Doesn't that listen delightful? A rather pe culiar thing happened in Greenwood last night, something that has put the mouth of every fellow in town whose pleasure it has been to tase the sump tuous dish above mentioned, to water ing. ., ,, , a big, slick opossum. Mr. Taylor called in the assistance of Mr. Johnnie McCain, who T, between them, captured the "eats" , , , ' wie eais. It has not been decided just who will be called upon to furnish the pota toes necessary for feast-to-be. ^ f * "Spot" Taylor, connected with the office force of the Avent Cotton Co., whose place of business is on the river front, was quietly working in the of fice of that company last night about nine o'clock, when he heard behind him. Investigation that the intruder a noise j proved , was N EAR-ACCIDENT ON BRIDGE. A collision yesterday morning be tween an automobile and a wagon at the northern approach to the river bridge, resulting in a smashed wagon, a pair of very frightened horses and the endangerment of numerous per sons upon the bridge and street. Turning the corner rapidly, the car, which was driven by a lady, is re ported to have rmashed into the wag on, and striking one of the horses. The team dashed across the bridge with the front axle and one wheel crushed in still hanging to them. They were fortunately checked as they turned into Market street at Court Square. The team belonged to the River Front stables. GREEKS MAY GO BACK TO FIGHT FOR COUNTRY. Greenville, Miss., Sept. 4. Greece declares war on Bulgaria, ev ery Greek in this state will return home and enter the army," said An gelo Moncons, well known fruit deal er of Greenville. The leading Greeks of this part of the state held a meeting in this city, discussed the situation and decided upon their plans, in the event of war between Greece and Bulgaria. Among those attending were Spiro George, former resident of this city, but now residing at Clarksdale; Mike Antonio, Angelo Miscons and other prominent men of this nation.
