SOUTH MISSISSIPPI COLLEGE

The student body got out and

chases. Louis Fox & Co., not only
demonstrated their wisdom in dis
playing valuable and pretty dry
goods, but they also demonstrated
their discriminating judgment for
beauty in having a picture made of
the wagonload of young ladies, which
was the prettiest feature of delega
tion, and the handsome and manly
looking young men did not detract
very much from the beauty scene.
The crowd was "chaperoned" by
Rev. A. L. O'Briant. It is understood
that if the young ladies succeed in
capturing the prize they will donate
the same to the Immanuel Baptist
No man has a better eye for
beauty (or land values) than Mr.
Thos. M. Ferguson and as soon as he
saw the pretty college girls he de
cided to stand a treat to the prettiest
young lady in the bunch. But when
he saw them, he gave up the task of
making the decision—there were too
many pretty girls for him to pick out
a winner. In fact, Mr. Ferguson de
dared that they were all pretty and
that ail should receive a treat, so he
generously went and bought enough
oranges to supply the entire student
body, Including the boys.
The sale goes on through Saturday
and the contest is open until then.
So far the students are ahead and it
is very probable that they will come

kind of an invasion of the city had
The invasion was a peaceful one,
and part of it was beautiful—the fem
inine part, of course!
It was the students of the South
Mississippi college who came in an
immense wagon, which was necessary,
not only to haul the students, but to
bring the college yell as well.
In the great wagon that had been
especially prepared for the occasion,
there were 120 students, fully half ol

as the prettiest spring flower. The

BEAUTIFUL TRUCK FARMS

Soil of Forrest County is Unsurpassed for Truck
Farming as Splendid Growing Crops Show.
A highly profitable investment on

the road from Petal down to the
River avenue bridge and then back
