Listen boys, the time drawing near when some of those who have hogs will turn them out to scrap up the peas after the corn is gathered. Now if you want to keep on good terms with your neighbors and have no trouble, keep your hogs in the pen. You know when they are turned out they will get in your neighbor's field. I had rather have the good will of my neighbor than to have all the hogs my neighbors own. Old Hughey. Commissioner's Sale of Land. J. H. Johnson, Compl't. No. 3231. A. L.

Mrs. Eunice Lockwood, of Crystal Springs, who has been appointed by the commission to solicit funds to purchase a suitable silver service for the battleship "Mississippi," spent a short time here Wednesday and se cured $9.26 for the fund. It has been an unbroken custom for every state after which a battle ship is named to contribute a silver service costing about $10,000 to the vessel. The legislature should have appropriated this amount, but did not. Mississippi is as able to give to this cause as any other state and state pride should prompt us to give something to the cause. Having the whole state to cover Mrs. Lockwood did not have time to '•I remain here longer, but appointed Mrs. R. L. Dabney to receive sub scriptions for the fund, and if you feel that you care to contribute to this cause you may leave your con tribution with Mrs. Dabney or at this office. $ !•> Contributors: $1.00 Mial Wall.

As was predicted in last week's issue, the negro Jackson, who was caught attempting to steal cotton at Branan's gin at Days, was lynclel by a posse in Hurricane creek bottom last Thursday. As soon as word of the delivery reached here, Deputies Weissinger and Barbee went to the scene of the delivery and found the body of the negro swinging from a limb. On the negro's body at the time of his arrest was a gun and $270 in mon ey. This property, together with the team and wagon was taken charge of by Sheriff Barbee and will be held for identification by the heirs of the negro, if any there be. After thirty days the property will be turn 3d over to the county administrator and be converted into money, which w ill go into the county treasury. Van Bran an claimed that he bought the wagon and team from the negro before the latter was lynched, but Sheriff Bar bee refused to recognize the trade, but finally agreed to let J. W. Branan keep the team and use it until time to turn it over to the county admin istrator on condition that Mr. Branan would assume personal responsibility for the animals.
