HERNANDO, MISSISSIPPI, APRIL 12, 1907 NUMBER 15 VOLUME 11 POPLAR CORNER PICK-UPS. Some few farmers have planted a little cotton already. J. E. Jagoe and family were guests at the comer last Sunday. Miss Osha Jepson, o' Robinsonville, is visiting at the corner and neighbor hood. Mr. Claud Tully, of Lynchburg, is dangerously sick, so I am informed, with lagrippe. The rain last Thursday evening stopped the farmers from plowing and planting in this part of the county. W. H. Williamson carried two ne groes >4)0 Hernando jail last Friday from R. T. Lamb's place in the delta. I am informed that a burglar was trying to enter Mrs. Sambo Stewart's dwelling one night last week but was frightened away before he broke in. Good luck to The Times-Proter. Old Hughey. The Man With a Grievance. Another thing to avoid is the role of the chronically injured person. We all know him. He has a continual grievance. He has been cheated, abused, wronged, insulted, disappointed and deceived. We wonder how or why he [has man aged to exist, as we listen to the story of his troubles. No man ever treats him fairly, either in business or social life. Ev erybody is ungrateful, unkind, selfish, and he could not be made to believe ;o, WHEN IN THE CITY Call on the Store That Will Save You Money.

All of us meet with occasional blows from fate in the form of insults or in gratitude or trickery from an unex pected source. But if we get nothing else but those disappointed experiences from life we may rest assured the fault lies some where in ourselves. We are not sending out the right kind of mutual stuff, or we would get better returns. You never can tell what your thoughts will do In bringing you hate or love. For thoughts are things and their airy wings Are swift as a carrier dove. They follow the law of the universe— Each thing must create Its kind— And they speed o'er the track to bring you back. Whatever went out from your mind. In the main we must of necessity get from humanity what we gave to it. If we question our ability to win friends or love, people will also ques tion it. If we doubt our own judgment and discretion in business, others will doubt it, and the shrewd and unprin cipled will take the opportunity given by our doubts of ourselves to spring upon us.—Ella Wheelor Wilcox.

Mooted Question of Prisoner's Identity Awaits Solution. A little furore was created here the latter part of last week by the an- nouncement that Judge Muse, a negro sent up from Justice Gatlin's court on a charge of illicit cohabitation, was the negro Buck Muse who killed - Jackson near Independence several years ago. Owing to the fact that several years has elapsed since the crime was com mitted, and the negro, Buck, was then hardly grown, it is extremely difficult to find anyone whose word could absolutely be depended upon to identify him. Several negroes have said positively that he was Buck, several more have said that they were uncertain and others say that the prisoner is Buck's brother. This is what the negro himself says, but can not be induced to talk freely. One thing is said to be certain, and that is that the negro is wanted for some crime, and the officers will at tempt to investigate his record fur ther.

The Weekly Agriculturist in writing about conditions "then" and "now," says: Not long ago a farmer went to a harness dealer to buy a team har ness. He found one that suited him and the price was $45. The fanner happened to remember that about a dozen years ago he had bought a har ness just like it from the same dealer for $35, and he mentioned the fact. The dealer went to his books and found this to be true. But," said the dealer, ''my books show that you did not pay cash for it because you did not have the money. You hauled in 300 bushels of com and gave it to me for the $35 harness. Now, I will tell you what I will do. If you are willing to bring me three hundred bushels of pom I will give you the $46 harness also a double buggy driving harness worth $36, a single driving buggy harness worth $16, a plush robe worth $7, a boy's saddle worth $6, one pair of wool blankets worth $7, one whip and riding bridle worth $1.50, two leather halters worth $2.50, brash and curry comb worth $1 and a raws hide buggy whip worth $1. i i Real Estate Transfers.

It was to Duck pond the gentlemen went last week. Miss Gartrell is teaching a pay school at Nesbitt. Messrs. Tom and Robson Mabry have gone in the dairy business. Quarterly conference met here last Sunday. Rev. H. T. Gaines preached at night. Rev. Wade Preston, of Horn Lake attended. Miss Mary Walker had a nice enter tainment at the close of her school. Despite the rainy weather it was thor oughly enjoyed by all who attended. Mrs. Dodds, an old lady living here, has a literary treasure. It is an acros tic written on her maiden name, Mar garet L. Fisher. When she was a girl 14 years old this was written, now she is past seventy. It is a beautiful poem. The old poet has long since passed away, but has left a silent mon ument to his genius.
