THE UlllVfBSAl CAR
THE FARMER'S TRUCK The Ford one-ton truck may well be class ed as an agricultural necessity, it fits into and fills so many wants on the farm. It is a reliable bearer of farm burdens, not only doing the work of several horses quicker and better than the horses, and does not "eat its head off" when not working. The aggressive farmer has only to consider the possibilities of the Ford truck and he is ready to buy one. We judge this to be so from the way farmers are buying them. E. K. MYRICK BRIDGE PARTY.

The Mississippi Tribune, a weekly paper recently estabished at Jackson by A. B. and C. B. Lowe, is being deservedly commended by the state press. It is indeed a magni ficent newspaper conducted on a lofty plane, and seems to put Mississippi and her best interests above new every thing else. The paper is supporting Governor Longino, but it has yet had an unkind word to say about the other candidates for the Democràt ic nomination for governor. Such sup port is bound to have telling «ffect. A friend who was recently in Jack son tells us that the junior editor and publisher of The Tribune, Mr. C. B. Lowe, has recently returned from France. It was further learned that never young Mr. Lowe, who was knocked senseless by being run over by a cais son, was picked up by Lt. M. B. Longino, one of Governor Longino both yet in France. ! who helped carry him to a hospital, i where he recovered. Neither knew ! that the other was in France. The senior editor of The Tribune, Mr. A., B. Lowe, needs no mtroduction to «» press or people of his native state, he! having been one of the ablest news paper men of Jackson for 30-years.
