\ KWS v 3 Published Every Afternoon (Except Sunday.) F. D. LANDER E. R. FARRELL .Editor. Business Manager. Entered as second-class matter on May 22. 1307 at the postofflce at Hat tiesburg, IVJiss., under the Act of Congress of March 2, 1879. LARGEST CIRCULATION OF ANY SOUTH MISSISSIPPI PAPER. rir-SSi ' MEMBER OF THE ASSOCIATED PRESS. WEDNESDAY, APRIL 16, 1913. TELEPHONES: Editorial and New« Rooms .. Business and Job Department 133 35 FLOOD BONDS News comes from Washington that President Wilson is seriously con cerned over what method is to be pursued to prevent floods in the middle West, such as have just devastated that territory. He considers it one of the greatest problems confronting his Administration, plan must be adopted, he believes, and it is likely that the Secretary of War will be ordered to direct his engineers to prepare a detailed report to be ready when the regular session of Congress meets next December. One plan which the President has had brought to his attention and which will receive serious consideration, is to have a general scheme of improvement planned which would absolutely take care of all future floods in the Mississippi, Missouri, Ohio and their tributaries and ftien to finance it with a general issue of what would be known as "flood bonds." A comprehensive a that he must be shown there was enoigh business "in the lower Mississip- | pi" to pay for the investment. He was willing enough to go ahead with work on the upper Mississippi, along where some of his votes came from; but before any money was spent "south of the line," he must be shown, And It is that sort of narrow politics and sectional legislation that has Representative Fitzgerald, chairman of the House Appropriations com mittee, is mildly opposed to this. Mr. Fitzgerald is a plutocratic, educat ed ass from the state of New York. He belongs body and soul to Tam many and Murphy. He tried to say something for the New York con tingent at the Baltimore convention and was hissed down. When he thought that "mad passion" has passed, he essayed to talk a second time, and a second time he got a second hissing. Then Murphy had the sense to tell him to go way back and sit down. But he is a cheaky chap, and though he must know that Wilson has his measure, he will lose no chance to butt in and volunteer his advice. Part of the President's plan of financing this much-needed improvement would be met by the states benefltted, the remainder by the government; and in connection with this plan is to be considered the advisability of bringing to this work the entire Panama canal construction force, the great est organization of the kind the world ever saw, and which is soon to be idle. But the President has made it plain to all of his callers that while he considers the relief question urgent he must have time to study it thorough ly before he can act. He believes that the Red Cross and the state organ izations, with the assistance of the Federal officials who are aiding, will provide all of the temporary relief needed, and that permanent relief be deferred until a real plan of definite action can be worked out and be cause of this attitude it is believed that the present extraordinary session of Congress will enact only such legislation as cannot be deferred and is dçsigned to meet emergencies, and the great problem of future flood pre vention will go over until the regular session in December. can Information of like character has been sent out from Washington be fore, but somehow this has a truer ring to it. When Mr. Taft took junketing trip south and spoke in New Orleans at the Great Waterway convention, the uninitiated thought the millennium had come; but those who heard Mr. Taft, and studied his measured words had little faith in his doing anything. When he got back east the first thing he said cursed the country and drained the south for fifty years. But the present administration, It seems, is going to give the Bouth a square deal. Not a partial deal. Nobody wants that. But a square deal. The sectional senators from Louisiana will be taught' that the general ln terest of the country is more to be considered than the special interest they represent. And whlppersnappers of the Fitzgerald stripe, representing the money bags of Wall street and the dirty deals of Tammany, will be shorn of all save their strut. The country will feel confident that what Mr. Wil son recommends will be for the general good, and that the work done under his administration will be well done. It is too big a question to decide hastily, and its consideration is properly deferred to tue regular session. THE RIGHT VIEW OF IT A ten-year-old boy ln Atlanta Btole a bottle of coca cola and was arrested, tried and sent to the state reformatory to remain until he is 21 years of age; and there is no way to get him out except by executive clemency. A Chicago lawyer read about it and "became interested." This lawyer in sending the facts out to the press, expresses the hope that "publicity will shame the Georgia legislature into repealing 'the digraceful statute.' " The . ' Mobile Item also brands this "aggravated instance of legislative stupidity." They both take the wrong view of the case. They miss the intent and purpose of the law, entirely. Looked at with proper understanding and from a right view, this is one of the most helpful, uplifting laws on the statute boo kB of Georgia. This law doe« not mean to punish, it moans to save. This boy was not "Bent up" for stealing a five cent bottle of coca cola. The small offense only gave the law a chance to get hold of him. He was a street waif. He had a so-called father, but he wasn't much father. He had a mother, but she was not doing a mother's part by him. He was allowed to run the streets; and any boy, your boy or you neighbor's boy, who runs the streets,, will run wild. This boy was becoming criminal. To save him from a crim Inal life the state took him In time and will be a parent to him until he Is 21 years of age, unless the Governor In a moment of weakness lets him go back to his former vicious, bad environments. Thla Chicago lawyer, bo bent upon "adorning a moral and pointing a tale," need not bave gone so far from home for his subject. At Waukesha, Wisconsin, only a few hours' run, he can find a like institution, and one most admirably run. Children who have no parents, and those whoEe pa rents are Immoral and dissolute, are taken away from them and sent to this Institution for all tbe years of their minority. There they are clothed and fed, doctored and educated; mentally and morally trained to meet the temptations and flght the battles of life; taught a trade or profession. Fa thered by the State until they are of age, then sent out Into the world with not the least stain upon them. And statistics show that this "home" sends ont fewer failures than even the supposed to be well regulated homes, to aay nothing of the dissolute ones. In that state, we have been told, many parents who have stumbled upon the downward path and traveled It and knows Its tortures and Its horrors, beg admission to this home, for their little ones. . instead of "shaming Georgia" for so huawne a law, rather should The Rem and Its Chicago Buttinski, shame the states that have no home to offer Its homeless and worse than homeless waifs. The Senate Finance committee has determined not to have "hearings" on the tariff bill They had hearings enough, they aay, when the house wae tion In January. What a shame, that "the Interests," ittomeya, will not be allowed to talk the bill to death. tti« i CROP BEGINS MOVING CAR LOT S HIPMENTS—YIELD AND RESULTS EXCEED EARLY ESTIMATE S—FURNISHES PLEASANT EMPLOYMENT FOR MANY PEOPLE. T. L. O'Donnell, the strawberry king of Southeast Mississippi, has just re turned from a trip to the strawberry section of Louisiana, where he went to study shipping conditions as they prevail in that section. While there he witnessed the shipping of 35 car loads of strawberries in one day. On this trip Mr. O'Donnell bought 1,000 plants of a new and highly prized berry called the "Lady Corneille," for which he paid $25. The specimens or this splendid new variety of berries shown a News representative, certain ly indicate marvelous qualities. Mr. O'Donnell says this variety is now bringing $1 a crate extra in the mar ket. Speaking of the strawberry busi ness at Sanford, Mr. O'Donnell states they are now shipping daily and that their largest shipment to date was made by Southern Express on Monday, when F. M. Smith, route agent for the company was on hand to direct the proper and careful hand ling of the fruit.

On the subject of "Butter 'Secrets'," a contributor to the current issue of Farm and Fireside says: "There are three essentials for mak ing good butter. "First, the milk must be clean. "Second, the cream must be kept cold and at an even temperature. "Third ,the cream must be properly ripened before churning. "Ton cannot get good milk from a cow that is not healèhy. Tou cannot get good milk from a cow that does not pet sufficient nourishing food and plenty of good drinking-water (and by that I mean water that you would drink). A certain amount of food Is necessary to maintain cow ln ■t A! Mr. O'Donnell says today they be gin to load out solid car lots of ber ries, Which will be forwarded to east ern markets. He states that they are getting results in excess of their early estimates of yield and success. The berries they are getting are of extra quality and the plants are load ed with fruit. Prices and demand are satisfactory. The significance of several hundred acres in strawberries is not generally understood. When the picking season comes on there is furnished light and pleasant work for women „and chil dren. The children out in the open, where they get pure fresh air and a good sun tan, and women, young and old, find profitable work in the pack ing house. The Sanford enterprise, with 100 acres bearing and another hundred on the way, will serve to attract attention to this industry, while also tending to promote other lines of horticultural and agricultural de velopment in this section. should be curried to be clean, and the udder and teats washed with warm water before each milking. The milk er should be clean in person and clothing, and the milking-place clean and open to the sunlight. "Germs multiply verv rapidlv in heat, so the next point is to cool the milk as rapidly as possible. Plenty of cold water is necessary, and ice too, ' summer.
