To change a mere "store" into a busy "place of business" requires "the lure of the printer's Ink." Of course, the printers' ink must be mixed with the pest brains, judgment and experience to be found In the entire store organization. The net result of such mixture is a win ning campaign of publicity—which means about 99 cents out of every dollar of the appropriation to be spent on advertising, the other cent to be devoted to "supplemental" ad newspaper \vertlslng. o great mercantile enterprise was ever built up without M . sBSBT "... ■ • V . •/ . ■mm JACKSON DOINGS DOWN TO DATE 24 of Jackson, Miss., October 21.—L.

These Child Burned te Death. Emma, the 13-year-old daughter of Mr. Chnrles H. Wight of Kosciusko, was burned to death a few mornings since. The child was sleeping in the room with her mother, and when the baby began to fret about daylight, Emma got up, made a fire in the grate, rocked the little one to sleep, put it back in Its bed, and returned to the fire. Her gown became ignited and in a moment she was enveloped in flames which caused her death a few hours later. The did Forty Days Without Food. The average Southern farmer does not feed his hogs any more than he can help, but no effort has ever been made to see if a hog can live without anything whatever to eat. However, some of the hog owners mqy be in ter. -ted in the accidental test made by the proprietors of Allisons Wells recently. A large red sow was missed from the pasture on the 5th of Sep tember, and was searched for high and low without success. 13th of October a little negro helper about the place was chasing a chlckeif for dinner, when the fowl ran under an old outhouse in the corner of the pasture. There, fastened between two low joists, was the red sow. boy supposed she was dead, .but re ported the find to the proprietor. The floor was raised and the hog released. She was very plainly weak and emaciated, but she finally ambled off to the slop trough where she ample justice to all that was set be fore her. That hog had endured and survived a fast of at least 40 days. On the Long Staple Cotton. The farmer who has raised long staple cotton this year has struck it rich, the price of that variety being more than twice what is being paid for the Bhort staple, since Mr. Calvin Stubblefield of Ya zoo county sold several bales at 24 cents, receiving $7,000 for the lot.

Elks Delegates. L. E. Cook, president of the Grand Lodge of Elks of Mississippi, has named the following delegates to the Elks constituitional convention to be held at Chicago, November 5, viz; Gov. J. K. Vardaman, W. A. Alcorn of Coahoma county; J. C. Millsaps of Clay county; H. E. Greaves of Madl and J. D. Thornes of Warren. The object of the meeting is to adopt uniform rules for state organiza tions. son, No More Offices. The Neshoba county farmers have sounded a note of warning against the creation of any more offices by the next legislature, especially that of commissioner of immigration, which has been demanded in several quar ters recently, and, in fact, for the past several years. They do not want Mississippi "made the dumping ground for the worthless scum of foreign na tions." The Neshoba folks also com plain at having to make cotton in competition with the state convicts, and demand that the convicts be worked on the public roads instead of at raising cotton and corn. There is not much danger that the state will change Its very excellent system of caring for the convicts. They are where they will make money for the public now, and the farmers get just as much benefit from the results of their labor as do any other class of citizens. The convicts of Mississippi are humanely treated and well cared for, they are more than self-support ing, and no change in the system will be made. off be Mormon Elders. \ A number of Mormon elders are once more at work in the Southern part of Mississippi, and if a case or two of tar and feathers should hap pen to be reported in the near future, the outside world need not be sur prised.
